Ray, Sam, does signing in parallel work for you? If so, and if we hear back from you before Wednesday’s call, I think we can cancel the call since this is the main item we would need to discuss. Please advise.

Signatories can always execute on a single document later on, for posterity.  (In other words, this should be signed in parallel, rather than serially.)
