(1) To indemnify the director.

(2) To indemnify or advance expenses to the director, even if the director has not met the relevant standard of conduct set forth in section 504.852, subsection 1, failed to comply with section 504.854, or was adjudged liable in a proceeding referred to in section 504.852, subsection 4, paragraph “a” or “b”, but if the director was adjudged so liable the director’s indemnification shall be limited to reasonable expenses incurred in connection with the proceeding.

2. If the court determines that the director is entitled to indemnification under subsection 1, paragraph “a”, or to indemnification or advance for expenses under subsection 1, paragraph “b”, it shall also order the corporation to pay the director’s reasonable expenses incurred in connection with obtaining court-ordered indemnification or advance for expenses.
