Section 13. If the commissioner is satisfied, as to any optometric service corporation, that (1) it has failed to comply with the provisions of its charter, or (2) it is being operated for profit, or (3) it is fraudulently conducted, or (4) its condition is such as to render its further transaction of business hazardous to the public or to its subscribers, or (5) its officers and agents have refused to submit to an examination under section nine, or (6) it has exceeded its powers, or (7) it has violated any provision of law, or (8) it has compromised, or is attempting to compromise, with its creditors on the ground that it is financially unable to pay its claims in full, or (9) it is insolvent, he may apply to the supreme judicial court for an injunction restraining it from further proceeding with its business. The court may forthwith issue a temporary injunction restraining the transaction of any business, and it may after a full hearing, make the injunction permanent, and appoint one or more receivers to take possession of the books, papers, moneys and other assets of the corporation, settle its affairs, and distribute its funds to those entitled thereto, subject to such rules and orders as the court may prescribe.
