(2) The signatures of the president or vice-president and the secretary or assistant secretary upon a certificate may be facsimiles if the certificate is countersigned by a transfer agent, or registered by a registrar, other than the corporation itself or an employee of the corporation.

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

(c) Each certificate representing shares shall state upon the face thereof:

(1) That the corporation is organized under the laws of this state;

(2) The name of the person to whom issued;

(3) The number and class of shares and the designation of the series, if any, which that certificate represents;

(4) The par value of each share represented by that certificate or a statement that the shares are without par value.
