                              REGISTRATION RIGHTS

     Section 2.1  Demand Registration.

     (a) Upon written notice to the Issuer prior to the Termination Date from a
Holder or Holders holding a majority in interest of the Registrable Securities
(the "Demand Request") requesting that the Issuer effect the registration under
the Securities Act of any or all of the Registrable Securities held by such
requesting Holders (the "Requesting Holders" which term shall include parties
deemed "Requesting Holders" pursuant to Section 2.1(d)) in a firmly underwritten
public offering, the Issuer shall prepare as soon as practicable and, within 30
days after such request, file with the Commission a registration statement with
respect to such Registrable Securities and thereafter use its reasonable best
efforts to cause such registration statement to be declared effective under the
Securities Act within 45 days after the filing of such registration statement. A
registration effected pursuant to a Demand Request pursuant to this Section
2.1(a) shall be referred to herein as a "Demand Registration." Notwithstanding
any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary:

          (i) the Holders may collectively exercise their rights to request
     Demand Registrations on not more the one occasion in any 12-month period;

          (ii) the method of disposition requested by Holders in connection with
     any Demand Registration may not, without the Issuer's written consent, be a
     Rule 415 Offering; and

          (iii) the Issuer shall not be required to effect a Demand Registration
     hereunder unless the aggregate offering size for such offering is at least
     $500 million.

     (b) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary,
a Demand Registration requested by Holders pursuant to this Section 2.1 shall
not be deemed to have been effected, and, therefore, not requested and the
rights of each Holder shall be deemed not to have been exercised for purposes of
paragraph (a) above, if (i) such Demand Registration has not become effective
under the Securities Act or (ii) such Demand Registration, after it became
effective under the Securities Act, was not maintained effective under the
Securities Act (other than as a result of any stop order, injunction or other
order or requirement of the Commission or other government agency or court
solely on the account of a material misrepresentation or omission of a Holder)
for at least 90 days (or such shorter period ending when all the Registrable
Securities covered thereby have been disposed of pursuant thereto) and, as a
result thereof, the Registrable Securities requested to be registered cannot be
distributed in accordance with the plan of distribution set forth in the related
registration statement. So long as a Demand Request is made by the Holders prior
to the Termination Date, the Holders shall not lose their right to their Demand
Registration under Section 2.1(a) if the Demand Registration related to such
Demand Request is delayed or not effected in the circumstances set forth in this
Section 2.1(b) or Section 2.4.

     (c) The Issuer shall have the right to cause the registration of additional
equity securities for sale for the account of the Issuer or any other Person to
whom the Issuer has granted registration rights from time to time, in the
registration of Registrable Securities requested by the Holders pursuant to
Section 2.1(a)



                                       3
<PAGE>   4


above, provided that if such Holders are advised in writing (with a copy to the
Issuer) by the lead or managing underwriter referred to in Section 2.3(b) that,
in such underwriter's good faith view, all or a part of such Registrable
Securities and additional equity securities cannot be sold and the inclusion of
such Registrable Securities and additional equity securities in such
registration would be likely to have an adverse effect on the price, timing or
distribution of the offering and sale of the Registrable Securities and
additional equity securities then contemplated (referred to herein as a
"Material Adverse Effect"), then the number of securities that can, in the good
faith view of such underwriter, be sold in such offering without so adversely
affecting such offering shall be allocated as follows: (i) first, all securities
the Holders propose to register and (ii) thereafter, the securities to be
registered for the account of the Issuer and/or securities requested to be
registered for the account of other Persons entitled to participate, in such
proportions determined by the Issuer in its discretion or in accordance with
agreements between the Issuer and other Persons.

     (d) Within 7 days after delivery of a Demand Request by a Holder, the
Issuer shall provide a written notice to the Holders' Agent (which shall be
deemed notice to all the Holders), advising such Holder of its right to include
any or all of the Registrable Securities held by such Holder for sale pursuant
to the Demand Registration and advising such Holder of procedures to enable such
Holder to elect to so include Registrable Securities for sale in the Demand
Registration. Any Holder may, within 15 days of delivery to such Holder of a
notice pursuant to this Section 2.1(d), elect to so include all or any portion
of such Holder's Registrable Securities in the Demand Registration by written
notice to such effect to the Issuer specifying the number of Registrable
Securities desired to be so included by such Holder. All Holders requesting to
have their Registrable Securities included in a Demand Registration pursuant to
this Section 2.1(d) shall be deemed "Requesting Holders" for purposes of this
Article 2.

     Section 2.2  Piggyback Registrations.

     (a) Right to Piggyback. Each time the Issuer proposes to register any of
its equity securities (other than pursuant to an Excluded Registration) under
the Securities Act for sale to the public (whether for the account of the Issuer
or the account of any securityholder) or proposes to make such an offering of
equity securities (other than pursuant to an Excluded Registration) to the
public pursuant to a previously filed registration statement pursuant to Rule
415 under the Securities Act, the Issuer shall give prompt written notice to
each Holder of Registrable Securities (which notice shall be given not less than
10 days prior to the proposed initial filing date of the Issuer's registration
statement in the case of a non-Rule 415 Offering or the commencement of the
offering, in the case of a Rule 415 Offering), which notice shall offer each
such Holder the opportunity to offer any or all of its or his Registrable
Securities in such public offering. Each Holder who desires to sell its or his
Registrable Securities in such underwritten public offering shall so advise the
Issuer in writing (stating the number of Registrable Securities desired to be
registered or sold) within 5 days after the date of such notice from the Issuer.
Any Holder shall have the right to withdraw such Holder's request for inclusion
of such Holder's Registrable Securities in any offering pursuant to this Section
2.2(a) by giving written notice to the Issuer of such withdrawal. The Issuer may
at any time withdraw or cease proceeding with any such registration if it shall
at the same time withdraw or cease proceeding with the registration of all other
equity securities originally proposed to be registered. Except as provided
above, the Holders shall have no registration rights with respect to an Excluded
Registration.

     (b) Priority on Piggyback Registrations. The priority of shares to be
included on an offering pursuant to which the Holders have piggyback
registrations and as to which the underwriters have advised the Holders that a
Material Adverse Effect would be likely shall be as follows:

          (i) with respect to an offering initiated by the Issuer on its own
     behalf, first, to the Issuer, and second to the Holders and any other
     securityholders of the Issuer who have the right to include securities in
     such offering pro rata based on the number of shares proposed by such
     Persons to be included in the offering; and


                                       4
<PAGE>   5

          (ii) with respect to an offering pursuant to demand registration
     rights of securityholders of the Issuer other than the Holders, first to
     the securityholders pursuant to their demand registration rights, second to
     the Issuer, and third, to the Holders and any other securityholders of the
     Issuer who have the right to include securities in such offering pro rata
     based on the number of shares proposed by the Holders and such other
     securityholders to be included in such offering.

If as a result of the provisions of this Section 2.2(b) any Holder shall not be
entitled to include all Registrable Securities in an offering that such Holder
has requested to be so included, such Holder may withdraw such Holder's request
to include Registrable Securities in such offering prior to completion of the
offering.

     (c) Limited Purpose Shelf Registration Statement. The Issuer shall prepare,
and file with the Commission one or more Registration Statements on Form S-3
under Rule 415 of the Securities Act covering the resale of the Registrable
Securities in an amount of shares to be mutually agreed by Issuer and Holders'
Agent from time to time, but such Registration Statement on Form S-3 shall be
restricted for use by the Holders only for participation pursuant to Section
2.2(a) in a firmly underwritten public offering of Common Stock proposed by the
Issuer for the account of the Issuer or the account of any other securityholder.

     Section 2.3  Other Matters In Connection With Registrations.

     (a) Each Holder shall keep the Holders' Agent informed promptly of (x) the
name, address and other contact information of such Holder, (y) the number of
Registrable Securities held from time-to-time by such Holder, and (z) each sale,
transfer or other disposition of Registrable Securities (including the number of
shares sold) by each such Holder. The Holders' Agent shall use its reasonable
best efforts to keep the Issuer informed promptly of (x) the name, address and
other contact information of each Holder, (y) the number of Registrable
Securities held from time-to-time by each such Holder and (z) each sale,
transfer or other disposition of Registrable Securities (including the number of
shares sold) by each such Holder.

     (b) The Issuer shall have the right to designate an underwriter or
underwriters as the lead or managing underwriters of any Demand Registration or
other registration who shall be reasonably acceptable to Holders owning a
majority of the Registrable Securities proposed to be sold therein.

     (c) No Holder may participate in any registration statement hereunder
unless such Person (x) agrees to sell such Person's Registrable Securities on
the basis provided in any underwriting arrangements approved by the Issuer and
(y) completes and executes all questionnaires, powers of attorney, indemnities,
underwriting agreements, and other documents reasonably required under the terms
of such underwriting arrangements.

     Section 2.4  Certain Delay Rights. The Issuer may defer the filing or
effectiveness (but not the preparation) of a registration statement required by
Section 2.1 for a period not to exceed 120 days (or, if longer, 120 days after
the effective date of the registration statement contemplated by clause (ii) or
(iii) below) if (i) at the time the Issuer receives the Demand Request, the
Issuer or any of its Subsidiaries are engaged in confidential negotiations or
other confidential business activities, disclosure of which would be required in
such registration statement (but would not be required if such registration
statement were not filed), and the Board of Directors of the Issuer determines
in good faith that such disclosure would be materially detrimental to the Issuer
and its stockholders or would have a material adverse effect on any such
confidential negotiations or other confidential business activities, (ii) within
three (3) business days following its receipt of a Demand Request, the Issuer
decides to effect a public offering of the Issuer's securities for the Issuer's
account, or (iii) prior to the receipt of any Demand Request, another Person has
exercised demand registration rights and the Issuer has begun preparations or
planning for the offering (each of clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) referred to
herein as a "Disadvantageous Condition"). A deferral of the filing or
effectiveness of a registration statement pursuant to this Section 2.4


                                       5
<PAGE>   6

shall be lifted, and the requested registration statement shall be filed
forthwith, if, in the case of a deferral pursuant to clause (i) of the preceding
sentence, the negotiations or other activities are disclosed or terminated, or,
in the case of a deferral pursuant to clause (ii) or (iii) of the preceding
sentence, the proposed offering for the Issuer's or another securityholder's
account is abandoned. In order to defer the filing or effectiveness of a
registration statement pursuant to this Section 2.4, the Issuer shall promptly
(but in any event within three (3) business days), upon determining to seek such
deferral, deliver to each Holder (whether by notice directly to such Holder or
through the Holders' Agent) a certificate signed by an executive officer of the
Issuer stating that the Issuer is deferring such filing pursuant to this Section
2.4 and a general statement of the reason for such deferral, and an
approximation of the anticipated delay. Within 20 days after receiving such
certificate, the holders of a majority of the Registrable Securities held by the
Requesting Holders and for which registration was previously requested may
withdraw such Demand Request by giving notice to the Issuer. If withdrawn, the
Demand Request shall be deemed not to have been made for all purposes of this
Agreement. The Issuer may defer the filing of a particular registration
statement pursuant to this Section 2.4 only once during any 12-month period.

     Section 2.5  Expenses. Except as provided herein, the Issuer shall be
responsible for all Registration Expenses with respect to each registration
hereunder, whether or not any registration statement becomes effective.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) each Holder and the Issuer shall be
responsible for its own internal administrative and similar costs, which shall
not constitute Registration Expenses, (ii) each Holder shall be responsible for
all underwriting discounts and commissions, selling or placement agent or broker
fees and commissions, and transfer taxes, if any, in connection with the sale of
securities by such Holder, (iii) each Holder shall be responsible for the legal
fees and expenses of its own counsel; and (iv) the Issuer shall be responsible
for all out-of-pocket costs and expenses of the Issuer and its officers and
employees incurred in connection with providing the assistance and/or attending
analyst or investor presentations or any "road show" undertaken in connection
with the registration and/or marketing of any Registrable Securities as
contemplated in Section 2.6(g).

     Section 2.6  Registration and Qualification. If and whenever the Issuer is
required to effect the registration of any Registrable Securities under the
Securities Act as provided in Section 2.1, the Issuer shall as promptly as
practicable (but subject to the provisions of Section 2.1):

          (a) prepare, file and cause to become effective a registration
     statement under the Securities Act relating to the Registrable Securities
     to be offered in accordance with the intended method of disposition
     thereof;

          (b) prepare and file with the Commission such amendments and
     supplements to such registration statement and the prospectus used in
     connection therewith as may be necessary to keep such registration
     statement effective and to comply with the provisions of the Securities Act
     with respect to the disposition of all Registrable Securities until the
     earlier of (A) such time as all Registrable Securities proposed to be sold
     therein have been disposed of in accordance with the intended methods of
     disposition set forth in such registration statement and (B) the expiration
     of 90 days after such registration statement becomes effective, provided,
     that such 90-day period shall be extended for such number of days that
     equals the number of days elapsing from (x) the date the written notice
     contemplated by Section 2.6(e) below is given by the Issuer to (y) the date
     on which the Issuer delivers to the Holders of Registrable Securities the
     supplement or amendment contemplated by Section 2.6(e) below;

          (c) furnish to the Holders of Registrable Securities and to any
     underwriter of such Registrable Securities such number of conformed copies
     of such registration statement and of each such amendment and supplement
     thereto (in each case including all exhibits), such number of copies of the
     prospectus included in such registration statement (including each
     preliminary prospectus) in conformity with the requirements of the
     Securities Act and such documents incorporated by reference in such
     registration statement or prospectus as the Holders of Registrable
     Securities or such


                                       6
<PAGE>   7

     underwriter may reasonably request (it being understood that, subject to
     Section 2.10 and the requirements of the Securities Act and applicable
     State securities law, the Issuer consents to the use of the prospectus and
     any amendment or supplement thereto by each Selling Holder and the
     underwriters in connection with the offering and sale of the Registrable
     Securities covered by the registration statement of which such prospectus,
     amendment to supplement is a part);

          (d) furnish to any underwriter of such Registrable Securities an
     opinion of counsel for the Issuer and a "cold comfort" letter signed by the
     independent public accountants who have audited the financial statements of
     the Issuer included in or incorporated by reference into the applicable
     registration statement, in each such case covering substantially such
     matters with respect to such registration statement (and the prospectus
     included therein) and the related offering as are customarily covered in
     opinions of issuer's counsel with respect thereto and in accountants'
     letters delivered to underwriters in underwritten public offerings of
     securities and such other matters as such underwriters may reasonably
     request;

          (e) promptly notify the Selling Holders and each underwriter in
     writing (i) when a prospectus or any prospectus supplement or
     post-effective amendment has been filed and, with respect to a registration
     statement or any post-effective amendment, when the same has become
     effective, (ii) of the issuance by any state securities or other regulatory
     authority of any order suspending the qualification or exemption from
     qualification of any of the Registrable Securities under state securities
     or "blue sky" laws or the initiation of any proceedings for that purpose,
     (iii) at any time when a prospectus relating to a registration pursuant to
     Section 2.1 is required to be delivered under the Securities Act, of the
     happening of any event as a result of which the prospectus included in such
     registration statement, as then in effect, includes an untrue statement of
     a material fact or omits to state any material fact required to be stated
     therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the
     circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, and (iv) of any
     request by the Commission, or any other regulatory body or other body
     having jurisdiction, for any amendment or supplement to any registration
     statement or other document relating to such offering, and in either such
     case, at the request of the Selling Holders, promptly prepare and furnish
     to the Selling Holders a reasonable number of copies of a supplement to or
     an amendment of such prospectus as may be necessary so that, as thereafter
     delivered to the purchasers of such Registrable Securities, such prospectus
     shall not include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a
     material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the
     statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they are
     made, not misleading;

          (f) use its reasonable best efforts to list all such Registrable
     Securities covered by such registration on each securities exchange or
     automated interdealer quotation system on which the Common Stock is then
     listed;

          (g) use reasonable efforts to assist the Holders in the marketing of
     Common Stock in connection with up to five underwritten offerings hereunder
     (including, to the extent reasonably consistent with work commitments,
     using reasonable efforts to have officers of the Issuer attend "road shows"
     and analyst or investor presentations scheduled in connection with such
     registration), with all out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by the
     Issuer or such officers in connection with such attendance or assistance to
     be paid by the Issuer as provided in Section 2.5;

          (h) use its commercially reasonable efforts to register or qualify
     such Registrable Securities under such other securities or blue sky laws of
     such jurisdictions as the managing underwriter reasonably requests; use its
     commercially reasonable efforts to keep each such registration or
     qualification (or exemption therefrom) effective during the period in which
     such registration statement is required to be kept effective; and do any
     and all other acts and things which may be reasonably necessary or
     advisable to enable such Selling Holder to consummate the disposition of
     the Registrable Securities owned by such Selling Holder in such
     jurisdictions (provided, however, that the


                                       7
<PAGE>   8

     Issuer will not be required to (A) qualify generally to do business in any
     jurisdiction where it would not otherwise be required to qualify but for
     this subparagraph or (B) consent to general service of process in any such
     jurisdiction);

     than 30 days after the end of the 12-month period beginning with the first
     day of the Issuer's first fiscal quarter commencing after the effective
     date of a registration statement, which earnings statement shall cover said
     12-month period, and which requirement will be deemed to be satisfied if
     the Issuer timely files complete and accurate information on Forms 10-Q,
     10-K and 8-K under the Exchange Act, and otherwise complies with Rule 158
     under the Securities Act;

          (j) if requested by the managing underwriter or any Selling Holder,
     promptly incorporate in a prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment
     such information as the managing underwriter or any Selling Holder
     reasonably requests to be included therein, including, without limitation,
     with respect to the Registrable Securities being sold by such Selling
     Holder, the purchase price being paid therefor by the underwriters and with
     respect to any other terms of the underwritten offering of the Registrable
     Securities to be sold in such offering, and promptly make all required
     filings of such prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment;

          (k) as promptly as practicable after filing with the Commission of any
     document which is incorporated by reference into a registration statement
     (in the form in which it was incorporated), deliver a copy of each such
     document to each Selling Holder;

          (l) provide a CUSIP number for the Registrable Securities included in
     any registration statement not later than the effective date of such
     registration statement;

          (m) cooperate with each Selling Holder and each underwriter
     participating in the disposition of such Registrable Securities and their
     respective counsel in connection with any filings required to be made with
     the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc.;

          (n) prepare and file with the Commission promptly any amendments or
     supplements to such registration statement or prospectus which, in the
     opinion of counsel for the Issuer or the managing underwriter, is required
     in connection with the distribution of the Registrable Securities; and

          (o) advise each Selling Holder of such Registrable Securities,
     promptly after it shall receive notice or obtain knowledge thereof, of the
     issuance of any stop order by the Commission suspending the effectiveness
     of such registration statement or the initiation or threatening of any
     proceeding for such purpose and promptly use its best efforts to prevent
     the issuance of any stop order or to obtain its withdrawal at the earliest
     possible moment if such stop order should be issued.

     Section 2.7  Underwriting; Due Diligence.

     (a) If requested by the underwriters for any underwritten offering of
Registrable Securities pursuant to a registration requested under this Article
2, the Issuer shall enter into an underwriting agreement with such underwriters
for such offering, which agreement will contain such representations and
warranties by the Issuer and such other terms and provisions as are customarily
contained in underwriting agreements with respect to secondary distributions,
including, without limitation, indemnification and contribution provisions
substantially to the effect and to the extent provided in Section 2.8, and
agreements as to the provision of opinions of counsel and accountants' letters
to the effect and to the extent provided in Section 2.6(d). Such underwriting
agreement shall also contain such representations and warranties by such Selling
Holders and such other terms and provisions as are customarily contained in
underwriting agreements with respect to secondary distributions, including,
without limitation, indemnification and contribution provisions substantially to
the effect and to the extent provided in Section 2.8.

     (b) In connection with the preparation and filing of each registration
statement registering Registrable Securities under the Securities Act pursuant
to this Article 2, the Issuer shall give the Holders' Agent and the
underwriters, if any, and their respective counsel and accountants (the identity
and number of whom shall be reasonably acceptable to the Issuer), such
reasonable and customary access to its books, records and properties and such
opportunities to discuss the business and affairs of the Issuer with its
officers and the independent public accounts who have certified the financial
statements of the Issuer as shall be necessary, in the opinion of such Holders
and such underwriters or their respective counsel, to conduct a reasonable
investigation within the meaning of the Securities Act; provided that the
foregoing shall not require the Issuer to provide access to (or copies of) any
competitively sensitive information relating to the Issuer or its subsidiaries
or their respective businesses; provided further that (i) each Holder and the
underwriters and their respective counsel and accountants shall have entered
into a confidentiality agreement reasonably acceptable to the Issuer and (ii)
the Holders' Agent and the underwriters and their respective counsel and
accountants shall use their reasonable best efforts to minimize the disruption
to the Issuer's business and coordinate any such investigation of the books,
records and properties of the Issuer and any such discussions with the Issuer's
officers and accountants so that all such investigations occur at the same time
and all such discussions occur at the same time.

     Section 2.8  Indemnification and Contribution.

     (a) The Issuer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless, to the fullest extent
permitted by law, each Selling Holder and each of its employees, advisors,
agents, representatives, partners, officers and directors, and each Person, if
any, who controls such Selling Holder within the meaning of either Section 15 of
the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act from and against any and
all losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses (including, without
limitation, any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with
defending or investigating any such action or claim) insofar as such losses,
claims, damages, liabilities or expenses are caused by any untrue statement or
alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any registration
statement or any amendment thereof, any preliminary prospectus or prospectus (as
amended or supplemented if the Issuer shall have furnished any amendments or
supplements thereto) relating to the Registrable Securities, or caused by any
omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be
stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading,
except insofar as such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses are
caused by any such untrue statement or omission or alleged untrue statement or
omission made in reliance upon information furnished to the Issuer in writing by
such Selling Holder expressly for use therein. The Issuer also agrees to
indemnify any underwriter of the Registrable Securities so offered and each
Person, if any, who controls such underwriter on substantially the same basis as
that of the indemnification by the Issuer of the Selling Holders provided in
this Section 2.8(a). The reimbursement required by this Section 2.8(a) will be
made by periodic payments during the course of the investigation or defense, as
and when bills are received or expenses incurred.

     (b) Each Selling Holder agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Issuer,
its employees, advisors, agents, representatives, directors, the officers who
sign the registration statement and each Person, if any who controls the Issuer
within the meaning of either Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of
the Exchange Act, from and against any and all losses, claims, damages,
liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, any legal or other
expenses reasonably incurred in connection with defending or investigating any
such action or claim) insofar as such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or
expenses are caused by any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a
material fact contained in any registration statement or any amendment thereof,
any preliminary prospectus or prospectus (as amended or supplemented if the
Issuer shall have furnished any amendments or supplements thereto) relating to
the Registrable Securities, or caused by any omission or alleged omission to
state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make
the statements therein not misleading, but only with reference to information
furnished in writing by such Selling Holder (or any representative thereof)
expressly for use in a registration statement, any preliminary prospectus,
prospectus or any amendments or


                                       9
<PAGE>   10

supplements thereto; provided that the obligation to indemnify will be several,
not joint and several, among such Selling Holders, and the liability of each
Selling Holder will be in proportion to, and provided further that such
liability will be limited to, the net amount received by such seller from the
sale of Registrable Securities pursuant to such registration statement;
provided, however, that such Selling Holder shall not be liable in any such case
to the extent that prior to the filing of any such registration statement or
prospectus or amendment thereof or supplement thereto, such Selling Holder has
furnished in writing to the Issuer information expressly for use in such
registration statement or prospectus or any amendment thereof or supplement
thereto, such Selling Holder has furnished in writing to the Issuer information
expressly for use in such registration statement or prospectus or any amendment
or supplement thereto which corrected or made not misleading information
previously furnished to the Issuer. Each Selling Holder also agrees to indemnify
any underwriter of the Registrable Securities so offered and each Person, if
any, who controls such underwriter on substantially the same basis as that of
the indemnification by such Selling Holder of the Issuer provided in this
Section 2.8(b).

     (c) Each party indemnified under paragraph (a) or (b) above shall, promptly
after receipt of notice of a claim or action against such indemnified party in
respect of which indemnity may be sought hereunder, notify the indemnifying
party in writing of the claim or action; provided that the failure to notify the
indemnifying party shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have to
an indemnified party on account of the indemnity agreement contained in
paragraph (a) or (b) above except to the extent that the indemnifying party was
actually prejudiced by such failure, and in no event shall such failure relieve
the indemnifying party from any other liability that it may have to such
indemnified party. If any such claim or action shall be brought against an
indemnified party, and it shall have notified the indemnifying party thereof,
unless based on the written advice of counsel to such indemnified party a
conflict of interest between such indemnified party and indemnifying parties may
exist in respect of such claim, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to
participate therein, and, to the extent that it wishes, jointly with any other
similarly notified indemnifying party, to assume the defense thereof. After
notice from the indemnifying party to the indemnified party of its election to
assume the defense of such claim or action, the indemnifying party shall not be
liable to the indemnified party under this Section 2.8 for any legal or other
expenses subsequently incurred by the indemnified party in connection with the
defense thereof. Any indemnifying party against whom indemnity may be sought
under this Section 2.8 shall not be liable to indemnify an indemnified party if
such indemnified party settles such claim or action without the consent of the
indemnifying party. The indemnifying party may not agree to any settlement of
any such claim or action, other than solely for monetary damages for which the
indemnifying party shall be responsible hereunder, the result of which any
remedy or relief shall be applied to or against the indemnified party, without
the prior written consent of the indemnified party, which consent shall not be
unreasonably withheld and unless such settlement contains a full and
unconditional release of the indemnified party. In any action hereunder as to
which the indemnifying party has assumed the defense thereof, the indemnified
party shall continue to be entitled to participate in the defense thereof, with
counsel of its own choice, but the indemnifying party shall not be obligated
hereunder to reimburse the indemnified party for the costs thereof.

     (d) If the indemnification provided for in this Section 2.8 shall for any
reason be unavailable (other than in accordance with its terms) to an
indemnified party in respect of any loss, cost, claim, damage, liability or
expense referred to herein, then each indemnifying party shall, in lieu of
indemnifying such indemnified party, contribute to the amount paid or payable by
such indemnified party as a result of such loss, liability, cost, claim, damage,
liability or expense in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the
relative fault of the indemnifying party or parties on the one hand and of the
indemnified party or parties on the other hand in connection with the statements
or omissions that resulted in such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or
expenses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative
fault of the Issuer on the one hand and the Selling Holders on the other hand
shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or
alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission
to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Issuer or a
Selling Holder


                                       10
<PAGE>   11

and the parties' relative intent, knowledge, access to information and
opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission. The amount paid or
payable by an indemnified party as a result of the loss, cost, claim, damage,
liability, expense, or action in respect thereof, referred to above in this
paragraph (d) shall be deemed to include, for purposes of this paragraph (d),
any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by such indemnified party in
connection with investigating or defending any such action or claim. The Issuer
and the Selling Holders agree that it would not be just and equitable if
contribution pursuant to this Section 2.8 were determined by pro rata allocation
or by any other method of allocation which does not take account of the
equitable considerations referred to in this paragraph. Notwithstanding any
other provision of this Section 2.8, no Selling Holder shall be required to
contribute any amount in excess of the amount by which the total price at which
the Registrable Securities of such Selling Holder were offered to the public
exceeds the amount of any damages which such Selling Holder has otherwise been
required to pay by reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission
or alleged omission. No Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within
the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to
contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent
misrepresentation. The Holders' obligations in this Section 2.8(d) to contribute
shall be several in proportion to the amount of Registrable Securities
registered by them and not joint.

     (e) The obligations of the parties under this Section 2.8 shall be in
addition to any liability which any party may otherwise have to any other party.

     Section 2.9  Holdback Agreement. Each Selling Holder agrees not to effect
any sale or distribution, including any sale under Rule 144, of any equity
security of the Issuer (otherwise than through the registered public offering
then being made), within 10 days prior to or 30 days (or such lesser period as
the lead or managing underwriters may permit) after the date of the consummation
of such offering for any Demand Registration hereunder, for any underwritten
public offering by the Issuer by or any other Person of Common Stock or any
securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for Common Stock.

     Section 2.10  Suspension of Dispositions. Each Holder agrees by acquisition
of any Registrable Securities that, upon receipt of any notice (a "Suspension
Notice") from the Issuer of the happening of any event of the kind described in
Section 2.6(e)(iii), such Holder will forthwith discontinue disposition of
Registrable Securities until such Holder's receipt of the copies of the
supplemented or amended prospectus, or until it is advised in writing (the
"Advice") by the Issuer that the use of the prospectus may be resumed, and has
received copies of any additional or supplemental filings which are incorporated
by reference in the prospectus, and, if so directed by the Issuer, such Holder
will deliver to the Issuer all copies, other than permanent file copies then in
such Holder's possession, of the prospectus covering such Registrable Securities
current at the time of receipt of such notice. In the event the Issuer shall
give any such notice, the time period regarding the effectiveness of
registration statements set forth in Section 2.6(b) hereof shall be extended by
the number of days during the period from and including the date of the giving
of the Suspension Notice to and including the date when each Selling Holder of
Registrable Securities covered by such registration statement shall have
received the copies of the supplemented or amended prospectus or the Advice. The
Issuer shall use its commercially reasonable efforts and take such actions as
are reasonably necessary to render the Advice as promptly as practicable.

                                   ARTICLE 3

                              TERM AND TERMINATION

     This Agreement shall become effective at the Effective Time of the Merger
and shall continue in effect for five (5) years from the Effective Time, and
shall continue in effect thereafter until the Issuer terminates this Agreement
by delivery of written notice to each Holder (whether by notice directly to such
Holder or through the Holders' Agent) on the earlier of the following to occur
(or at any time thereafter): (i) the market value of the aggregate amount of
Registrable Securities beneficially owned by the Holders


                                       11
<PAGE>   12

is less than $1,000,000,000 based on the average closing price of the Issuer's
Common Stock for the twelve (12) consecutive calendar months preceding the date
of notice of termination; or (ii) the aggregate number of shares of Registrable
Securities beneficially owned by the Holders is less than the average weekly
trading volume of the Common Stock during the preceding consecutive six-month
period and the market value of the aggregate amount of Registrable Securities
beneficially owned by the Holders is less than $2,000,000,000 based on the
average closing price of the Issuer's Common Stock for the twelve (12)
consecutive calendar months preceding the date of notice of termination. Such
date upon which the Issuer terminates this Agreement shall be referred to herein
as the "Termination Date." Notwithstanding the above, no termination shall be
effective for any Demand Registration for which the Issuer has received a Demand
Request.

                                   ARTICLE 4

                                 MISCELLANEOUS

agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and
supersedes all other prior agreements and understandings, both written and oral,
between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof.

     Section 4.2 Not Exclusive; No Other Rights. The Holders agree that nothing
herein contained shall prohibit the Issuer from granting registration rights to
any other party, provided that such registration rights shall not conflict with
the terms of this Agreement. The Issuer represents and warrants that no other
Person has registration rights that conflict with the rights granted to the
Holders hereunder.

     Section 4.3 Assignment. No party may assign any of its rights or
obligations hereunder by operation of law or otherwise without the prior written
consent of the other parties.

     Section 4.4 Amendments, Waivers, Etc. This Agreement may not be amended,
changed, supplemented, waived or otherwise modified or terminated, except upon
the execution and delivery of a written agreement executed by the Issuer and
Holders representing a majority of the Registrable Securities then held by all
Holders.

     Section 4.5 Notices. All notices, requests, claims, demands and other
communications hereunder shall be in writing and shall be given (and shall be
deemed to have been duly received if given) by hand delivery or telecopy, or by
any courier service, such as Federal Express, providing proof of delivery. All
communications hereunder shall be delivered to the respective parties at the
address or telecopy number set forth on the signature pages hereto (unless such
contact information in the case of the Holders is updated by written notice from
the affected Holder to the Issuer).

     Section 4.6 Severability. Whenever possible, each provision or portion of
any provision of this Agreement will be interpreted in such manner as to be
effective and valid under applicable law but if any provision or portion of any
provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in
any respect under any applicable law or rule in any jurisdiction, such
invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect any other provision
or portion of any provision in such jurisdiction, and this Agreement will be
reformed, construed and enforced in such jurisdiction as if such invalid,
illegal or unenforceable provision or portion of any provision had never been
contained herein.

     Section 4.7 No Waiver. The failure of any party hereto to exercise any
right, power or remedy provided under this Agreement or otherwise available in
respect hereof at law or in equity, or to insist upon compliance by any other
party hereto with its obligations hereunder, and any custom or practice of the
parties at variance with the terms hereof, shall not constitute a waiver by such
party of its right to exercise any such or other right, power or remedy or to
demand such compliance.

     Section 4.8  No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is not intended
to be for the benefit of, and shall not be enforceable by, any Person who or

in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to the

which event the Holders' Agent will promptly so give such notice to each Holder.
Delivery of any notice or other communication pursuant to this Agreement by the
Issuer to the Holders' Agent in accordance with Section 4.5 will be deemed to
constitute notice by the Issuer directly to the Holders. Delivery of any notice

with any notice so give to such Holder hereunder.

     Section 4.12  Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterpart,
each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which, taken
together, shall constitute one and the same Agreement.

     Section 4.13  Termination of Existing Registration Rights. Each Holder that
is a party to any registration rights agreement of the Issuer in effect on the
date hereof hereby consents to the termination of such agreement effective on
