It may also reinsure policies of title insurance issued by other companies on risks whether located in this State or elsewhere. Issuance of contracts of reinsurance by a title insurance company not authorized to engage in the business of title insurance in this State, but authorized to engage in the business of title insurance in any of the United States, reinsuring a title insurance company authorized to engage in the business of title insurance in this State on real property located in this State, shall not of itself constitute the doing of business in this State for the purpose of this act by such reinsuring company; provided, however, that the issuance of such a contract or reinsurance is equivalent to and shall constitute an appointment by such reinsurer of the Commissioner of Insurance to be its true and lawful agent, upon whom may be served all lawful process and complaints in any actions or proceedings arising out of contracts of reinsurance with a title insurance company authorized to engage in the business of title insurance in this State on real property located in this State, and the issuance of any such reinsurance contract shall be signification of its agreement that such service of process and complaints is of the same legal force and validity as personal service of the same upon the insurer.
