License to sell securities.
No person may in this State solicit subscription to or purchase of any security covered by a solicitation permit issued under this chapter, unless then licensed therefor by the Commissioner.
Such a license may be issued only to natural persons, and the Commissioner shall not license any person found by the Commissioner to be:
Dishonest or untrustworthy;
Of unfavorable personal or business history or reputation; or
For any other cause, reasonably unsuited for fulfillment of the responsibilities of such a licensee.
The applicant for such a license must file a written application therefor with the Commissioner, on forms and containing inquiries as designated and required by the Commissioner. The application must include or be accompanied by:
The social security number of the applicant;
An endorsement by the holder of the permit under which the securities are proposed to be sold; and
The application fee specified in NRS 680B.010.
The Commissioner shall promptly cause an investigation to be made of the identity and qualifications of the applicant.
The license, if issued, must be for the period of the permit, and must automatically be extended if the permit is extended.
The Commissioner shall revoke the license if at any time after issuance the Commissioner has found that the license was obtained through misrepresentation or concealment of facts, or that the licensee is no longer qualified therefor, or that the licensee has misrepresented the securities offered, or has otherwise conducted himself or herself in or with respect to transactions under the license in a manner injurious to the permit holder or to subscribers or prospects or the public.
This section does not apply to securities broker-dealers registered as such under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or with respect to securities the sale of which is underwritten, other than on a best efforts basis, by such a broker-dealer.
With respect to solicitation of subscriptions to or purchase of securities covered by a solicitation permit issued by the Commissioner, the license required by this section is in lieu of a license or permit otherwise required of the solicitor under any other law of this State.
An applicant who is a resident of this State must, as part of his or her application and at the applicants own expense:
Arrange to have a complete set of his or her fingerprints taken by a law enforcement agency or other authorized entity acceptable to the Commissioner; and
Submit to the Commissioner:
A completed fingerprint card and written permission authorizing the Commissioner to submit the applicants fingerprints to the Central Repository for Nevada Records of Criminal History for submission to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a report on the applicants background and to such other law enforcement agencies as the Commissioner deems necessary; or
Written verification, on a form prescribed by the Commissioner, stating that the fingerprints of the applicant were taken and directly forwarded electronically or by another means to the Central Repository and that the applicant has given written permission to the law enforcement agency or other authorized entity taking the fingerprints to submit the fingerprints to the Central Repository for submission to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a report on the applicants background and to such other law enforcement agencies as the Commissioner deems necessary.
The Commissioner may:
Unless the applicants fingerprints are directly forwarded pursuant to subparagraph (2) of paragraph (b) of subsection 9, submit those fingerprints to the Central Repository for submission to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and to such other law enforcement agencies as the Commissioner deems necessary; and
Request from each such agency any information regarding the applicants background as the Commissioner deems necessary.
