I get an Object reference not set when trying to Signa PDF with UseLTV = true

I use the following code and when we set UseLtv = true, we got an Obj ref not set error on the save method.

Here is the code:

using (Document document = new Document(“c:\temp\a.pdf”))
using (PdfFileSignature signature = new PdfFileSignature(document))
X509Store store = new X509Store(StoreName.My, StoreLocation.LocalMachine);
X509Certificate2Collection certificates = store.Certificates.Find(X509FindType.FindByThumbprint, “58944ba2c6fdb351fcf2d293edf1e3f7a4def250”, false);

                System.Drawing.Rectangle rect = new System.Drawing.Rectangle(100, 100, 200, 100);

                ExternalSignature extSig = new ExternalSignature(certificates[0]);
                extSig.UseLtv = true;
                signature.Sign(1, "Signature Reason", "Contact", "Location", true, rect, extSig);
