In any case any such officer, transfer agent or registrar who has signed or whose facsimile signature has been placed upon any such certificate shall have ceased to be such officer, transfer agent or registrar before such certificate is issued, it may be issued by the Corporation with the same effect as if such officer, transfer agent, or registrar were such officer, transfer agent or registrar at the date of its issue.

The holder of any stock of the Corporation shall immediately notify the Corporation and/or the appropriate transfer agent of such stock of any loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of the certificate therefor.

SECTION 5. Transfer Agent and Registrar: Regulations. The Corporation shall, if and whenever the Board of Directors or any Committee constituted pursuant to Article IV of these by-laws with power for the purpose shall so determine, maintain one or more transfer offices or agencies, each in charge of a transfer agent designated by the Board of Directors or by such Committee, where the shares of the capital stock of the Corporation shall be directly transferable, and also one or more registry offices, each in charge of a registrar designated by the Board of Directors or by such Committee, where such shares of stock shall be registered, and no certificate for shares of the capital stock of the Corporation, in respect of which a registrar and transfer agent shall have been designated, shall be valid unless countersigned by such transfer agent and registered by such registrar. A firm may act at the same time as both transfer agent and registrar of the Corporation.
