By converting the same into money according to the terms of the agreement pursuant to which the security was delivered to the creditors; or
By agreement, arbitration, compromise, or litigation between the creditor and the liquidator.
The determination shall be under the supervision and control of the court with due regard for the recommendation of the liquidator.
