Subject to the provisions of the Articles of Incorporation, the consideration for the issuance of shares of the capital stock of the corporation may be paid, in whole or in part, in money, in other property, tangible or intangible, or in labor actually performed for, or services actually rendered to, the corporation; provided, however that the part of the surplus of a corporation which is transferred to capital upon the issuance of shares as a share dividend shall be deemed to be the consideration for the issuance of such shares. When payment of the consideration for which a share was authorized to be issued shall have been received by the corporation, or when surplus shall have been transferred to capital upon the issuance of a share dividend, such share shall be declared and taken to be fully paid and not liable to any further call or assessment, and the holder thereof shall not be liable for any further payments thereon.

     Every certificate shall state the name of the registered holder, the number of shares represented thereby, the par value of each share or a statement that such shares have no par value, and whether such shares have been fully paid up and are nonassessable. If such shares are not fully paid up, the certificate shall be legibly stamped to indicate the per centum which has been paid up, and as further payments are made thereon the certificate shall be stamped accordingly.

     If the corporation is authorized to issue shares of more than one class, every certificate shall state the kind and class of shares represented thereby, and the relative rights, interests, preferences and restrictions of such class, or a summary thereof; provided that such statement may be omitted from the certificate if it shall be set forth upon the face or back of the certificate that such statement, in full, will be furnished by the corporation to any shareholder upon written request and without charge.

     Section 4 . Form of Certificates. The stock certificates to represent the shares of the capital stock of this corporation shall be in such form, not inconsistent with the laws of the State of Indiana, as may be adopted by the board of directors.
