21. No act, document or writing shall bind the Société unless it is signed by the chair of the board of directors, the president and chief executive officer or, to the extent determined by the internal management by-laws of the Société, by a member of its personnel.
In those by-laws, the Société may allow, subject to the conditions and on the documents it determines, that a signature be affixed by means of an automatic device or that a facsimile signature be engraved, lithographed or printed. However, the facsimile shall have the same force as the signature itself only if the document is countersigned by a person authorized by those by-laws.
