5. The nonstock corporation's surplus following any transaction with affiliates involving more than one-sixth of one percent of admitted assets or one percent of surplus as of the immediately preceding December 31, whichever is less, shall be reasonable in relation to the nonstock corporation's outstanding liabilities and adequate to its financial needs; and

6. The transaction is in the best interest of the subscribers.
