A sinking fund may be authorized by the commissioner to purchase and retire debentures or shares of the company at a price approved by the commissioner not exceeding par value thereof with accrued or unpaid dividends or interest or, if it is not practical to purchase such shares or debentures at a price so approved, the money in such sinking fund may be added to the surplus of such company. Any shares or debentures purchased out of such sinking fund shall be cancelled and shall not be reissued.
