SECTION 3.03. Execution, Dating, Certificate of Authentication.
Unless otherwise provided as contemplated by Section 3.01 with respect to any series of Bonds, or any Tranche thereof, the Bonds shall be executed on behalf of the Company by any two of the following: the President, the Chief Executive Officer, any Vice President, the Chief Financial Officer, the Treasurer or any Assistant Treasurer. The corporate seal of the Company may be affixed thereto or reproduced thereon and attested by any Authorized Officer. The signature of any or all of these officers on the Bonds may be manual or facsimile.
Bonds bearing the manual or facsimile signatures of individuals who were at the time of execution the President, the Chief Executive Officer, a Vice President, the Chief Financial Officer, the Treasurer or an Assistant Treasurer of the Company shall bind the Company, notwithstanding that such individuals or any of them have ceased to hold such offices prior to the authentication and delivery of such Bonds or did not hold such offices at the date of such Bonds.
Unless otherwise specified as contemplated by Section 3.01 with respect to any series of Bonds, or any Tranche thereof, each Bond shall be dated the date of its authentication.
Unless otherwise specified as contemplated by Section 3.01 with respect to any series of Bonds, or any Tranche thereof, no Bond shall be entitled to any benefit under this Indenture or be valid or obligatory for any purpose unless there appears on such Bond a certificate of authentication substantially in the form provided for herein executed by the Trustee or an Authenticating Agent by manual signature of an authorized officer thereof, and such certificate upon any Bond shall be conclusive evidence, and the only evidence, that such Bond has been duly authenticated and delivered hereunder and is entitled to the benefits of this Indenture. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Bond shall have been authenticated and delivered hereunder to the Company, or any Person acting on its behalf, but shall never have been issued and sold (or pledged) by the Company, and (a) the Company shall deliver such Bond to the Bond Registrar for cancellation or shall cancel such Bond and deliver evidence of such cancellation to the Trustee, in each case as provided in Section 3.09, and (b) the Company, at its election, shall deliver to the Trustee a written statement (which need not comply with Section 1.02 and need not be accompanied by an Officer’s Certificate or an Opinion of Counsel) stating that such Bond has never been issued and sold (or pledged) by the Company, then, for all purposes of this Indenture, such Bond shall be deemed never to have been authenticated and delivered hereunder and shall never be entitled to the benefits hereof.
