Sec. § 78.752
Insurance and other financial arrangements against liability of directors, officers, employees and agents.


A corporation may purchase and maintain insurance or make other financial arrangements on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise for any liability asserted against the person and liability and expenses incurred by the person in his or her capacity as a director, officer, employee or agent, or arising out of his or her status as such, whether or not the corporation has the authority to indemnify such a person against such liability and expenses.


The other financial arrangements made by the corporation pursuant to subsection 1 may include the following:


The creation of a trust fund.


The establishment of a program of self-insurance.


The securing of its obligation of indemnification by granting a security interest or other lien on any assets of the corporation.


The establishment of a letter of credit, guaranty or surety.
Ê No financial arrangement made pursuant to this subsection may provide protection for a person adjudged by a court of competent jurisdiction, after exhaustion of all appeals therefrom, to be liable for intentional misconduct, fraud or a knowing violation of law, except with respect to the advancement of expenses or indemnification ordered by a court.


Any insurance or other financial arrangement made on behalf of a person pursuant to this section may be provided by the corporation or any other person approved by the board of directors, even if all or part of the other person’s stock or other securities is owned by the corporation.


In the absence of fraud:


The decision of the board of directors as to the propriety of the terms and conditions of any insurance or other financial arrangement made pursuant to this section and the choice of the person to provide the insurance or other financial arrangement is conclusive; and


The insurance or other financial arrangement:


Is not void or voidable; and


Does not subject any director approving it to personal liability for his or her action,
Ê even if a director approving the insurance or other financial arrangement is a beneficiary of the insurance or other financial arrangement.


A corporation or its subsidiary which provides self-insurance for itself or for another affiliated corporation pursuant to this section is not subject to the provisions of title 57 of NRS.
