Lost, Stolen, Destroyed, and Mutilated Certificates

Sec. 11.7  In the event that any certificate representing shares of capital stock of FINRA Regulation shall be mutilated, FINRA Regulation shall issue a new certificate in place of such mutilated certificate. In the event that any such certificate shall be lost, stolen, or destroyed FINRA Regulation may, in the discretion of the Board or a committee appointed thereby with power so to act, issue a new certificate representing shares of capital stock in the place of any such lost, stolen, or destroyed certificate. The applicant for any substituted certificate or certificates shall surrender any mutilated certificate or, in the case of any lost, stolen, or destroyed certificate, furnish satisfactory proof of such loss, theft, or destruction of such certificate and of the ownership thereof. The Board or such committee may, in its discretion, require the owner of a lost or destroyed certificate, or such owner's representatives, to furnish to FINRA Regulation a bond with an acceptable surety or sureties and in such sum as shall be sufficient to indemnify FINRA Regulation against any claim that may be made against it on account of the lost, stolen, or destroyed certificate or the issuance of such new certificate. A new certificate may be issued without requiring a bond when, in the judgment of the Board, it is proper to do so.
