REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

                    (a)     Seller is a limited partnership duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware and has all requisite limited partnership power and authority to enter into and perform its obligations under this Agreement.

                    (b)     All consents, approvals, authorizations and orders (partnership and otherwise) required to be obtained by Seller (or any of its affiliates) for the execution, delivery and performance by Seller of this Agreement have been duly and lawfully obtained.

                    (c)     This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by Seller and constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of Seller, enforceable against Seller in accordance with its terms, except as such enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or similar laws relating to or limiting creditors' rights generally or by equitable principles relating to enforceability.

                    (d)     The execution, delivery and performance by Seller of this Agreement will not (i) cause Seller to be in conflict with or result in a breach or violation by Seller of any term or provision of, or constitute a default by Seller under, any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, loan or credit agreement, lease, license or other agreement or instrument to which Seller is a party or by which Seller is bound or affected, (ii) cause Seller to violate any Legal Requirement applicable to or binding upon it, (iii) result in the violation of the provisions of the organizational documents of Seller or (iv) result in the creation or imposition of any Lien upon any of the Shares, other than (A) Liens on the Shares that may be imposed by Purchaser and (B) any restrictions under applicable securities laws on the subsequent transfer of the Shares by Purchaser after Closing.

                    (e)     Seller is the sole owner of the Shares and has not previously sold, transferred, assigned or pledged (other than pledges that are no longer in effect) the Shares or any beneficial or other interest therein to any Person.  Seller has, and at the Closing (upon payment of the Purchase Price by Purchaser) shall transfer to Purchaser, sole title to the Shares, free and clear of all Liens.  Neither Seller nor (to its knowledge) any of its affiliates holds any equity or other interest in Purchaser other than the Shares.

3



Seller further acknowledges and agrees that neither Purchaser nor any of its affiliates has any current or contingent obligation to issue or grant to Seller (or any of its affiliates) any equity or other interest in Purchaser.

                    (f)     Seller (i) is familiar with the business of Purchaser and its affiliates, (ii) has obtained any and all information regarding Purchaser and its affiliates that Seller has determined is necessary or appropriate in making its decision to sell the Shares to Purchaser and in determining the sale price therefor, and (iii) is not relying on any representation or statement by Purchaser (except as set forth herein) or any of its directors, officers, shareholders, agents or representatives regarding (A) the business, financial condition or prospects of Purchaser or (B) the value of the Shares.  Seller acknowledges and agrees that (x) the Purchase Price may not equal the trading price of Purchaser's common stock (or the fair market value of the Shares) on the date hereof and (y) after the closing, the value of the Shares may increase as a result of a number of factors, including without limitation (I) changes in the Purchaser's business, financial condition, business relationships or prospects or (II) general industry, market or economic conditions.

                    (g)     There is no litigation pending or, to Seller's knowledge, threatened against Seller which would prohibit or impair the ability of Seller to transfer the Shares to Purchaser at the Closing.

                    (h)     Seller has not incurred, and will not incur, directly or indirectly, as a result of any action taken by it, any liability for brokerage or finders' fees or commissions or any similar charges in connection with Seller's transfer of the Shares to Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement.

                    (b)     All consents, approvals, authorizations and orders (corporate and otherwise) required to be obtained by Purchaser (or any of its affiliates) for the execution, delivery and performance by Purchaser of this Agreement have been duly and lawfully obtained or will be so obtained prior to the Closing.

                    (c)     This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by Purchaser and constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of Purchaser, enforceable against Purchaser in accordance with its terms, except as such enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or similar laws relating to or limiting creditors' rights generally or by equitable principles relating to enforceability.

4



                    (d)     The execution, delivery and performance by Purchaser of this Agreement will not (i) cause Purchaser to be in conflict with or result in a breach or violation by Purchaser of any term or provision of, or constitute a default by Purchaser under, any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, loan or credit agreement, lease, license or other agreement or instrument to which Purchaser is a party or by which Purchaser is bound or affected, (ii) cause Purchaser to violate any Legal Requirement applicable to or binding upon it, or (iii) result in the violation of the provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws of Purchaser.

                    (e)     Purchaser is not relying on any representation or statement by Seller or any of its respective directors, officers, shareholders, agents or representatives regarding the value of the Shares.  Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that (x) the Purchase Price may not equal the trading price of Purchaser's common stock (or the fair market value of the Shares) on the date hereof and (y) after the closing, the value of the Shares may decrease as a result of a number of factors, including without limitation (I) changes in the Purchaser's business, financial condition, business relationships or prospects or (II) general industry, market or economic conditions.

                    (f)     There is no litigation pending or, to Purchaser's knowledge, threatened against Purchaser which would prohibit or impair the ability of Purchaser to acquire the Shares from Seller at the Closing.

                    (g)     Purchaser understands and agrees that the Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act, and that accordingly they will not be fully transferable except as permitted under various exemptions contained in the Securities Act, or upon satisfaction of the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act.  Purchaser is acquiring the Shares for investment purposes only and not with the view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution thereof within the meaning of the Securities Act.

                    (h)     Purchaser has not incurred, and will not incur, directly or indirectly, as a result of any action taken by it, any liability for brokerage or finders' fees or commissions or any similar charges in connection with Purchaser's acquisition of the Shares pursuant to this Agreement (other than the payment of a fee to CIBC Capital Markets, the payment of which shall be the sole responsibility of Purchaser).                

                    (i)     The payment of the Purchase Price to Seller will not cause Purchaser to violate Section 160(a)(1) of the Delaware General Corporation Law.

                    (j)     Purchaser's most recently-filed Form 10-K and Form 10-Q (i) in all material respects were prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission promulgated thereunder, and (ii) did not at the time they were filed contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be

5



stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.
