(b) With the approval of the circuit court of the county in which the principal office of the involved financial institution is located, the receiver may assign to any new financial institution created to carry on the business of the involved financial institution any executory contract or unexpired lease not in default or the default of which has been cured. In any such case, before the court approves any such assignment, the receiver must prove to the court and the court must find that the proposed assignment involves a risk no greater to the new financial institution than that undertaken by the involved financial institution at the time the contract or lease was originally executed.
(c) Notwithstanding any provision in any executory contract or unexpired lease to the contrary, an executory contract or unexpired lease of a financial institution for which a receiver has been appointed under the provisions of this article may not be terminated or modified in any way after the appointment of the receiver solely because of a provision in such contract or lease that is conditioned upon the appointment of a receiver or conservator for the institution or upon the insolvency or financial condition of the institution at any time before a distribution of its proceeds pursuant to section twelve of this article.
