17:9A-98. Stock certificates; transfers of stock; facsimile signatures
A. Every bank shall issue to each of its stockholders a certificate or certificates signed by, or in the name of the bank by, the chairman or vice-chairman of the board, or the president or a vice-president, and by the treasurer or an assistant treasurer, or the secretary or an assistant secretary, or by the cashier or an assistant cashier, and may be sealed with the seal of the bank or a facsimile thereof. If the certificate is countersigned by a transfer agent or registrar, who is not an officer or employee of the bank, any and all other signatures may be facsimiles. In case any officer, transfer agent or registrar who has signed or whose facsimile signature has been placed upon such certificate shall have ceased to be such officer, transfer agent, or registrar before such certificate is issued, it may be issued by the bank with the same effect as if he were such officer, transfer agent or registrar at the date of its issue.
B. Shares of the capital stock of a bank shall be personal property and shall be held and transferred as provided in chapter 8 of Title 12A of the New Jersey Statutes.
