mutually acceptable to them to resolve the disagreement. If the parties are
unable to agree on the choice of an accounting firm, they will select a

regular outside accounting firms). In the event that the parties submit any
unresolved objections to an accounting firm, they will each bear and be
responsible for one-half (1/2) of the costs of such services. Upon final
determination of the amount to be paid hereunder, the party to pay such amount
shall promptly make such payment, in immediately available funds, to the other
party.

     (c) As part of the process of determining the Closing Working Capital,
Buyer and Seller will engage the services of a third party mutually agreeable to

reasonably acceptable to Seller to undertake an appraisal of the Miscellaneous
Property. Within thirty (30) days after Closing, such appraiser shall provide to
Buyer and Seller an appraisal of the Miscellaneous Property setting forth the
fair market value of the Miscellaneous Property. If either Buyer or Seller
disagree with the findings in such appraisal, such party shall have ten (10)
days from receipt of such appraisal to formally object to the findings contained
therein. If neither party so objects, they shall be deemed to have agreed to the
findings contained therein. In the event of an objection to appraised value of
the Miscellaneous Property which the parties are unable to resolve through good
faith negotiation within five (5) days of such objection, the parties shall
select an appraisal firm mutually acceptable to conduct a second appraisal. If
the parties are unable to agree on the choice of a second appraiser, they will
each select an appraiser, which appraisers shall select a third appraiser who
will undertake a second appraisal of the fair market value of the Miscellaneous
Property. The appraised amount of the Miscellaneous Property in such second
appraisal shall be binding on the parties hereto. In the event of such second
appraisal, the parties hereto will each bear and be responsible for one-half
(1/2) of the costs of such services. Within five (5) days after final
determination of the appraised amount of the Miscellaneous Property, Buyer shall
pay to Seller in immediately available funds an amount equal to twenty five
percent (25%) of such appraised value (the "Miscellaneous Property Payment").

the following provision shall apply: (i) If the adverse change requires a
supplementation and the change is covered by the working capital adjustment

directly rather than from the Stock Purchase Escrow) and Buyer shall not be

more than Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000), then (regardless of whether
such change can be cured), Seller can offer to address such change (through
reduction in purchase price, cash payment, indemnification, or otherwise), but

Agreement has been committed by the other party and such Breach has not been
waived or cured within fifteen (15) days following written notice of such
Breach;

     (b) (i) by Buyer if any of the conditions in Section 7 have not been

     9.2 EFFECT OF TERMINATION

     Each party's right of termination under Section 9.1 is in addition to any
other rights a party may have under this Agreement or otherwise, including, but
not limited to, those rights of Buyer and Seller in and to the Earnest Money
which are more fully described in Section 2.3 hereof, and the exercise of a
right of termination will not be an election of remedies. If this Agreement is
terminated pursuant to Section 9.1, all further obligations of the parties under
this Agreement will terminate, except that the obligations in Section 12.1 will
survive; provided, however, that if this Agreement is terminated by a party
because of the Breach of the Agreement by the other party or because one or more
of the conditions to the terminating party's obligations under this Agreement is
not satisfied as a result of the other party's failure to comply with its
obligations under this Agreement, the terminating party's right to pursue all
legal remedies will survive such termination unimpaired.

than Tax Claims, with respect to which Seller's indemnification obligations
shall be governed exclusively by the provisions of Section 10.6 hereof, Seller
will indemnify and hold harmless Buyer, Acquired Companies, and their respective
Representatives, stockholders, controlling persons, and affiliates
(collectively, the "Indemnified Persons") for, and will pay to the Indemnified

incidental, consequential and special or punitive damages, except as expressly
provided for in Section 10.8(c)), expense (including costs of investigation and
defense and reasonable attorneys' fees) or diminution of value, whether or not
involving a third-party claim (collectively, "Damages"), arising, directly or
indirectly, from or in connection with:

     (e) any Damage arising from the transfer of the Airplane from the Company
to Seller; or

     (f) any Damage arising from the SunTrust Litigation;

provided, however, that the term "Damages" shall not include or otherwise take
into account any reduction in or application, utilization or diminution of any
"net operating loss" of any of the Acquired Companies, as such term is defined
respectively for federal and state income tax purposes in Section 172 of the IRC
and Section 40-18-35.1 of the Code of Alabama 1975.

     10.3 INDEMNIFICATION AND PAYMENT OF DAMAGES BY BUYER

     Subject to the provisions of Section 10.4 and Section 10.8 hereof, Buyer
will indemnify and hold harmless Seller, and will pay to Seller the amount of

     (b) any Breach by Buyer of any covenant or obligation of Buyer in this
Agreement; or

     (c) any Damage incurred by Seller as a result of any product sold or

     10.4 TIME LIMITATIONS

     Neither Buyer nor Seller will have any liability (for indemnification or
otherwise) with respect to any indemnification obligation arising under Section
10.2 or Section 10.3 hereof, unless on or before the third (3rd) anniversary of
the Closing Date the other party notifies such party of a claim, specifying the
factual basis of that claim in reasonable detail; provided, however, that this
Section 10.4 shall not limit liability for a matter (a) in the case


                                       54

<PAGE>

of the indemnification obligations of Seller if, (i) such matter was within the
area of responsibility of a member of the Supervisor Knowledge Group and such
member of the Supervisor Group had Knowledge of such matter prior to Closing,
(ii) a member of the Management Knowledge Group had Knowledge of such matter
prior to Closing, or(iii) such matter is an Environmental, Health, and Safety
Liability relating to either the Known Non-Trust Fund Contamination Facilities
or the Known Buyer Remediation Facilities, where such Environmental, Health, and
Safety Liability arises out of an Environmental Condition existing on, at, or
underlying such Facilities on or prior to the Closing Date, which were Known to
Seller or the Acquired Companies at or prior to the Closing Date, and (b) in the
case of the indemnification obligations of Buyer, if Uzi Yemin had Knowledge of
such matter prior to Closing; provided, further, that this Section 10.4 shall
not limit liability for the matters described in Section 10.2(b), (e), or (f) or
Section 10.3(b); and provided, further, that Seller's representations and
warranties made in Section 3.11 and Part 3.11 of the Disclosure Letter shall
continue in full force and effect until ninety (90) days after the expiration of
the applicable statutes of limitation (including any extensions thereto, whether
automatic or permissive).

     10.5 PROCEDURE FOR INDEMNIFICATION--THIRD PARTY CLAIMS

     This Section 10.5 applies to all third party claims, except for Tax Claims,
which are addressed in Section 10.6.

     (a) Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under Section 10.2 or
Section 10.3 of notice of the commencement of any Proceeding against it, such
indemnified party will, if a claim is to be made against an indemnifying party
under such Section, give notice to the indemnifying party of the commencement of
such claim, but the failure to notify the indemnifying party will not relieve
the indemnifying party of any liability that it may have to any indemnified
party, except to the extent that the indemnifying party demonstrates that the
defense of such action is prejudiced by the indemnified party's failure to give
such notice.

     (b) If any Proceeding referred to in Section 10.5(a) is brought against an
indemnified party and it gives notice to the indemnifying party of the
commencement of such Proceeding, the indemnifying party will, unless the claim
involves Taxes, be entitled to participate in such Proceeding and, to the extent
that it wishes (unless (i) the indemnifying party is also a party to such
Proceeding and the indemnified party determines in good faith that it has
differing or conflicting defenses from the indemnifying parties, or (ii) the
indemnifying party fails to provide reasonable assurance to the indemnified
party of its financial capacity to defend such Proceeding and provide
indemnification with respect to such Proceeding), to assume the defense of such
Proceeding with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party and,
after notice in writing from the indemnifying party to the indemnified party of
its election to assume the defense of such Proceeding, the indemnifying party
will not, as long as it diligently conducts such defense, be liable to the
indemnified party under this Section 10 for any fees of other counsel or any
other expenses with respect to the defense of such Proceeding, in each case
subsequently incurred by the indemnified party in connection with the defense of
such Proceeding, other


                                       55

<PAGE>

than reasonable costs of investigation. If the indemnifying party assumes the
defense of a Proceeding, (i) it will be conclusively established for purposes of
this Agreement that the claims made in that Proceeding are within the scope of
and subject to indemnification; (ii) no compromise or settlement of such claims
may be effected by the indemnifying party without the indemnified party's
consent unless (A) there is no finding or admission of any violation of Legal
Requirements or any violation of the rights of any Person and no effect on any
other claims that may be made against the indemnified party, and (B) the sole
relief provided is monetary damages that are paid in full by the indemnifying
party; and (iii) the indemnified party will have no liability with respect to
any compromise or settlement of such claims effected without its consent. If
notice is given to an indemnifying party of the commencement of any Proceeding
and the indemnifying party does not, within ten (10) days after the indemnified
party's notice is given, give notice to the indemnified party of its election to
assume the defense of such Proceeding, the indemnifying party will be bound by
any determination made in such Proceeding or any compromise or settlement
effected by the indemnified party.

     (c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an indemnified party determines in
good faith that there is a reasonable probability that a Proceeding may
adversely affect it or its affiliates other than as a result of monetary damages
for which it would be entitled to indemnification under this Agreement, the
indemnified party may, by notice to the indemnifying party, assume the exclusive
right to defend, compromise, or settle such Proceeding at the expense of the
indemnifying party, but the indemnifying party will not be bound by any
determination of a Proceeding so defended or any compromise or settlement
effected without its consent (which may not be unreasonably withheld or
delayed).

     10.6 INDEMNIFICATION AND PROCEDURE FOR INDEMNIFICATION--TAX MATTERS

     (a) Except to the extent Taxes are reserved for on Interim Balance Sheet,
Seller agrees to be responsible for and to indemnify and hold the Indemnified
Persons harmless from and against any and all Taxes (or any asserted deficiency,
claim, demand, action, suit, proceeding, judgment or assessment, including the
defense or settlement thereof, relating to such Taxes) that may be imposed upon
or assessed against any of the Acquired Companies, or the assets thereof:

          (i) with respect to all taxable periods of the Acquired Companies
ending on or prior to the Closing Date;

          (ii) with respect to any and all Taxes of the Acquired Companies
allocated to Seller pursuant to Section 11.2;

          (iii) by reason of being a successor-in-interest or transferee of
another entity; and

          (iv) with respect to any and all Taxes of any member of a
consolidated, combined or unitary group of which any of the Acquired Companies
is or was a member on


                                       56

<PAGE>

or prior to the Closing Date, by reason of the liability of such Acquired
Company pursuant to Treas. Reg. Section 1.1502-6(a) or any analogous or similar
state, local or foreign law or regulation (collectively, "Tax Claims").

For the purpose of clarification, it is the intention of the parties that an
indemnifiable Tax Claim shall exist under this section 10.6(a) only if and to
the extent that an Acquired Company is determined to be liable for an additional
payment of Taxes after giving effect to all tax attributes permitted by
applicable law for the relevant pre-Closing period, including without limitation
net operating losses and credits against tax; provided, however, the amount of
any Tax Claim shall not take into account a carry back of any Tax loss,
deduction or credit of the Acquired Companies from any taxable period beginning
after the Closing Date. Seller also agrees to be responsible for and to
indemnify and hold the Indemnified Persons harmless from and against any Damages
incurred in connection with the Taxes (or any asserted deficiency, claim,
demand, action, suit, proceeding, judgment or assessment, including the defense
or settlement thereof, relating to such Taxes) for which Seller is responsible
to indemnify the Indemnified Persons pursuant to this Section 10.6(a) or the
enforcement of this Section 10.6(a).

     (b) Buyer shall have full responsibility for and discretion in handling any
Tax controversy, including, without limitation, an audit, a protest to the
Appeals Division of the IRS or any other governmental authority and litigation
in Tax Court or any other court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction (a "Tax
Proceeding") involving any Acquired Company. However, Seller shall have the
right, at his sole expense, to consult with Buyer regarding any Tax Proceeding
with respect to any Tax Claim. Buyer agrees not to enter into or permit any of
the Acquired Companies to enter into any agreement or settlement with a taxing
authority with respect to any Tax Proceeding involving a Tax Claim without the
consent of Seller, which consent shall not be unreasonably conditioned,
withheld, or delayed. If Seller withholds his consent to any agreement or
settlement, all out-of-pocket expenses subsequently incurred by such Acquired
Company in connection with any such Tax Proceeding shall be treated as Damages
for purposes of this Section 10.6(b).

     10.7 PROCEDURE FOR INDEMNIFICATION--OTHER CLAIMS

     A claim for indemnification for any matter not involving a third-party
claim may be asserted by notice to the party from whom indemnification is
sought.

     10.8 LIMITATIONS

     Any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding:

     (a) no claim for indemnification by either party under Sections 10.2(a),
(c) or (d) or Section 10.3(a) or (c) hereof may be made unless and until the
total amount of all claims by such party has exceeded Five Hundred Thousand
Dollars ($500,000), and then only to the extent of such excess; provided,
however, that this limitation shall not apply to: (i) claims relating to a
Breach of Sections 3.3, 3.8(b), or 3.9; (ii) with regard to the indemnification
obligation of Seller to Buyer, any Breach or Damages of which (A) a


                                       57

<PAGE>

member of the Supervisor Group had Knowledge of prior to Closing and such matter
was within the area of responsibility of such member of the Supervisor Knowledge
Group, (B) a member of the Management Knowledge Group had Knowledge prior to
Closing; (iii) with regard to the indemnification obligation of Buyer to Seller,
any Breach or Damages of which Uzi Yemin had Knowledge prior to Closing; and
(iv) Environmental, Health, and Safety Liabilities relating to either the Known
Non-Trust Fund Contamination Facilities or the Known Buyer Remediation
Facilities, where such Environmental, Health, and Safety Liabilities arise out
of Environmental Conditions existing on, at, or underlying such Facilities on or
prior to the Closing Date, which were Known to Seller or the Acquired Companies
at or prior to the Closing Date, and provided further that the amount of any
claim asserted against Seller under the preceding proviso shall not be treated
as a claim for purposes of establishing that claims in excess of Five Hundred
Thousand Dollars ($500,000) have been made against Seller. The parties
understand and acknowledge that nothing in this Section 10.8(a) is intended to
nor shall it be construed as imposing any limitation on the Tax indemnity in
Section 10.6 hereof.

     (b) in no case shall the aggregate liability of either party to the other
under Sections 10.2(a), (c) or (d) or Sections 10.3(a) or (c) hereof exceed
Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000); provided, however, that these limitations
shall not apply to (i) claims relating to: a Breach of Sections 3.3; (ii) with
regard to the indemnification obligation of Seller to Buyer, any Breach or
Damages of which (A) a member of the Supervisor Group had Knowledge of prior to
Closing and such matter was within the area of responsibility of such member of
the Supervisor Knowledge Group, (B) a member of the Management Knowledge Group
had Knowledge of prior to Closing; (iii) with regard to the indemnification
obligation of Buyer to Seller, any Breach or Damages of which Uzi Yemin had
Knowledge prior to Closing; and (iv) Environmental, Health, and Safety
Liabilities relating to either the Known Non-Trust Fund Contamination Facilities
or the Known Buyer Remediation Facilities, where such Environmental, Health, and
Safety Liabilities arise out of Environmental Conditions existing on, at, or
underlying such Facilities on or prior to the Closing Date, which were Known to
Seller or the Acquired Companies at or prior to the Closing Date; and provided
further, that if a claim for indemnification shall have been made but not
resolved prior to the date on which a reduction in the maximum potential
liability otherwise would have occurred, the amount of such claim shall be added
to the maximum potential liability otherwise in effect until the claim is
resolved. The parties understand and acknowledge that nothing in this Section
10.8(b) is intended to nor shall it be construed as imposing any limitation on
the Tax indemnity in Section 10.6 hereof.

     (c) neither party shall be liable to the other party for any consequential,
incidental, special or punitive damages suffered by the other party arising from
Section 10.2 or Section 10.3 hereof; provided, however, that this provision
shall not in any manner limit the liability of either party to the other party
with respect to damages suffered by such other party arising from claims or
actions by third parties that include consequential, incidental, special or
punitive damages.

     (d) if, a Covered UST ceases to be eligible for coverage under applicable
UST Programs as a result of the actions or inactions after Closing of any
Acquired Company or


                                       58

<PAGE>

Buyer (or of any of their respective officers, directors, employees, or agents),
then Buyer will not be entitled to any indemnification from Seller in connection
with liabilities related to or arising from such Covered UST.

     (e) Seller's obligation to indemnify Buyer with respect to any Tax Claim
will be reduced by any Tax Benefits (hereinafter defined) available to Buyer or
any Acquired Company as a result of the payment, loss or cost giving rise to
such indemnification. For this purpose, a tax benefit shall be deemed available
to Buyer or any Acquired Company with respect to a taxable year if, and to the
extent that, Buyer or any Acquired Companies' cumulative liability for Taxes
through the end of such taxable year, calculated by excluding any Tax items
attributable to the Tax Claim from all taxable years, exceeds Buyer or any
Acquired Companies' actual cumulative liability for Taxes through the end of
such taxable year, calculated by taking into account any Tax items attributable
to the Tax Claims for all taxable years (to the extent permitted by relevant Tax
law and treating such Tax items as the last items claimed for any taxable year)
(a "Tax Benefit").

     (f) The indemnity obligations of Seller shall be reduced by any net
insurance proceeds actually received by Buyer under the Environmental Insurance
Policy to be secured in connection with this transaction, after deducting all
costs incurred by Buyer in recovering such proceeds. Buyer agrees to look first
to the Environmental Insurance Policy with respect to any matter covered by the
Environmental Insurance Policy, and Seller shall not be obligated to indemnify
Buyer to the extent that Buyer's damages for any matter are covered by the
Environmental Insurance Policy; provided, however, that any deductible amount
paid by Buyer under the Environmental Insurance Policy shall constitute
Environmental Liabilities under Section 10.2(d) and otherwise, subject to the
provisions of Section 10.8(a).

     (g) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, neither the
total amount of Seller's liability to indemnify Buyer hereunder nor the total
amount of Buyer's liability to indemnify Seller hereunder shall exceed the Base
Purchase Price.

     10.9 SOLE REMEDY

     This Section 10 sets forth the exclusive and entire remedy of the parties
hereto against one another in respect of any Breach of any representation,
warranty, or covenant in this Agreement or the Disclosure Letter other than the
provisions of Sections 12.5 and 12.13 (for which the parties shall be entitled
to specific performance).

     10.10 TAX TREATMENT OF INDEMNIFICATION PAYMENTS

     Seller and Buyer agree to treat any indemnity payment made pursuant to this
Article 10 as an adjustment to the purchase price for federal, state, local and
foreign income tax purposes.

11.  TAX MATTERS


                                       59

<PAGE>

     The following provisions shall govern the allocation of responsibility as
between Buyer and Seller for certain tax matters following the Closing Date:

     11.1 RESPONSIBILITY FOR FILING INCOME TAX RETURNS

     (a) Seller shall prepare (or cause to be prepared) and file (or cause to be
filed) all Tax Returns of the Acquired Companies required to be filed by the
Acquired Companies on or prior to the Closing Date and shall cause the Acquired
Companies to pay any and all Taxes due with respect to such Tax Returns. All
such Tax Returns shall be prepared in a manner consistent with prior practice
unless otherwise required by applicable laws. Seller shall provide Buyer with
copies of such Tax Returns at least 15 days prior to the due date for filing
such Tax Returns and Buyer shall have the right to review and approve (which
approval shall not be unreasonably withheld) such Tax Returns and supporting
workpapers and schedules prior to the filing of such Tax Returns. The failure of
Buyer to propose any changes to any such Tax Return within such 15 days shall be
deemed to constitute its approval thereof.

     (b) Buyer shall prepare (or cause to be prepared) and file (or cause to be
filed) all Tax Returns of the Acquired Companies required to be filed by the
Acquired Companies after the Closing Date. To the extent any Taxes shown due on
such Tax Returns are indemnifiable by Seller, (i) such Tax Returns shall be
prepared in a manner consistent with prior practice unless otherwise required by
applicable laws; (ii) Buyer shall provide Seller with copies of each such Tax
Return at least 30 days prior to the due date for filing such Tax Return; and
(iii) Seller shall have the right to review and approve (which approval shall
not be unreasonably withheld) such Tax Returns for 15 days following the receipt
thereof. The failure of Seller to propose any changes to any such Tax Return
within such 15 days shall constitute its approval thereof. Not later than ten
(10) days before the due date for payment of Taxes with respect to any such Tax
Returns, Seller shall pay to Buyer an amount equal to that portion of the Taxes
shown on such Tax Return for which Seller has an obligation to indemnify Buyer
pursuant to the provisions of Section 10.6(a).

     11.2 STRADDLE PERIODS

     For federal income tax purposes, the taxable year of each of the Acquired
Companies shall end as of the close of the Closing Date and, with respect to all
other Taxes, Seller and Buyer will, unless prohibited by applicable law, close
the taxable period of the Acquired Companies as of the close of the Closing
Date. Neither Seller nor Buyer shall take any position inconsistent with the
preceding sentence on any Tax Return. In any case where applicable law does not
permit any of the Acquired Companies to close its taxable year on the Closing
Date or in any case in which a Tax is assessed with respect to a taxable period
which includes the Closing Date (but does not begin or end on that day), then
Taxes, if any, attributable to the taxable period of such Acquired Company
beginning before and ending after the Closing Date shall be allocated (i) to
Seller for the period up to and including the Closing Date, and (ii) to Buyer or
the period subsequent to the Closing Date. Any allocation of income of
deductions required to determine any Taxes attributable


                                       60

<PAGE>

to any period beginning before and ending after the Closing Date shall be made
by means of a closing of the books and records of any such Acquired Company as
of the close of the Closing Date, provided that exemptions, allowances, or
deductions that are calculated on an annual basis (including, but not limited
to, depreciation and amortization deductions) and any annual property or ad
valorem Taxes shall be allocated between the period ending on the Closing Date
and the period after the Closing Date in proportion to the number of days in
each such period.

     11.3 REFUND AND TAX BENEFITS

     Subject to the provisions of Section 11.4 and in Buyer's good faith
determination, any Income Tax refunds that are received by Buyer or any Acquired
Company, and any amounts credited against Income Tax to which Buyer or any
Acquired Company becomes entitled, that are attributable to any Tax periods or
portions thereof ending on or before the Closing Date shall be for the account
of Seller, and Buyer shall pay over to Seller any such refund or the amount of
any such credit within fifteen (15) days after receipt thereof, provided,
however, such refund or such credit shall not include any amount that the IRS
may have over-refunded as described in Part 3.11 of the Disclosure Letter. In
addition, to the extent that a claim for refund or a proceeding results in a
payment or credit against Income Tax by a taxing authority to Buyer or any
Acquired Company of any amount accrued on the Closing Date Balance Sheet, Buyer
shall pay such amount to Seller within fifteen (15) days after receipt thereof
or entitlement thereto. Any payments made under this Section 11.3 shall be net
of any Taxes payable with respect to such refund (taking into account any actual
reduction in Tax liability realized upon the payment pursuant to this Section
11.3).

     11.4 CARRYBACKS

     Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 11.3, any income tax refunds
(including any interest thereon) realized by any Acquired Company as a result of
the carryback of any Tax loss, deduction or credit of such Acquired Company from
any taxable period beginning after the Closing Date to a taxable period
beginning ending on or before the Closing Date shall not be for the account of
Seller and shall be retained by such Acquired Company.

     11.5 COOPERATION ON TAX MATTERS

     (a) Buyer and Seller shall cooperate fully, and Buyer shall ensure that
each Acquired Company will also cooperate fully, as and to the extent reasonably
requested by the other party, in connection with the filing of Tax Returns
pursuant to this Article 11 and any audit, litigation or other proceeding with
respect to Taxes. Such cooperation shall include the retention and (upon the
other party's request) the provision of records and information that are
reasonably relevant to any such audit, litigation or other proceeding and making
employees available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional
information and explanation of any material provided hereunder. Buyer and Seller
agree, and Buyer shall ensure that each Acquired Company agrees (A) to retain
all books and records with respect to Tax matters pertinent to the Acquired
Companies relating to any


                                       61

<PAGE>

taxable period before the Closing Date until the expiration of the statute of
limitations (and, to the extent notified by Buyer or Seller, any extensions
thereof) of the respective taxable periods, and to abide by all record retention
agreements entered into with any taxing authority, and (B) to give the other
party reasonable written notice prior to transferring, destroying or discarding
any such books and records and, if the other party so requests, Buyer (or the
Acquired Companies) or Seller, as the case may be, shall allow the other party
to take possession of such books and records.

     (b) Buyer and Seller further agree, upon written request, to use their
reasonable Best Efforts to obtain any certificate or other document from any
Governmental Body or any other Person as may be necessary to mitigate, reduce or
eliminate any Tax that could be imposed (including, but not limited to, with
respect to the Contemplated Transactions).

     11.6 TAX-SHARING AGREEMENTS

     All tax-sharing agreements or similar agreements with respect to or
involving any Acquired Company, if any, shall be terminated as of the Closing
Date and, after the Closing Date, the Acquired Companies shall not be bound
thereby or have any liability thereunder.

     11.7 CERTAIN TAXES AND FEES

     All transfer, documentary, sales, use, stamp, registration and other such
Taxes, and all conveyance fees, recording charges and other fees and charges
(including any penalties and interest) incurred in connection with the
Contemplated Transactions shall be shared equally by Buyer and Seller, except
(i) as otherwise provided in Section 5.9 and Section 12.1 of the Agreement, and
(ii) with regard to such transfer, documentary, sales, use, stamp, registration
and other such Taxes, conveyance fees, recording charges and other fees and
charges which are incurred solely in connection with financing arrangements of
Buyer, which shall be borne entirely by Buyer.

12.  GENERAL PROVISIONS

     12.1 EXPENSES

this Agreement will bear its respective expenses incurred in connection with the

regard to conflicts of laws principles.

     12.4 FURTHER ASSURANCES

information, (b) to execute and deliver to each other such other documents, and

documents referred to in this Agreement.

     12.5 AGREEMENT OF SELLER NOT TO COMPETE

     As an inducement for Buyer to enter into this Agreement and as additional
consideration for the consideration to be paid to Seller under this Agreement,
Seller hereby agrees that:

     (a) Negative Covenants. For a period of three years after the Closing Date:

          (i) Seller will not, directly or indirectly, engage in; invest in;
own; manage; operate; finance; control; participate in the ownership,
management, operation, financing or control of; be employed by, associated with
or in any way be connected with; lend his name or any similar name to; lend his
credit to; or render services or advice to; any business whose products or
activities include the sale of fuel and lubricants or the operation of
convenience stores, or otherwise compete in whole or in part with the products
or activities of any of the Acquired Companies within the State of Alabama or
within a


                                       64

<PAGE>

boundary which begins with each convenience store location of an Acquired
Company, as listed in Attachment 3.6 to the Disclosure Letter, and extends
twenty (20) miles in every direction, provided, however, that Seller may
continue to own, purchase or otherwise acquire up to (but not more than) five
percent (5%) of any class of securities of any enterprise if such securities are
listed on any national or regional securities exchange or have been registered
under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Seller hereby agrees
that this covenant is reasonable with respect to its duration, geographical area
and scope; and

          (ii) Seller will not, directly or indirectly, either for himself or
for any other Person, (A) induce or attempt to induce any employee of an
Acquired Company to leave the employ of such Acquired Company, (B) in any way
interfere with the relationship between Buyer or any Acquired Company and any
employee of an Acquired Company, (C) employ, or otherwise engage as an employee,
independent contractor or otherwise, any employee of an Acquired Company, or (D)
induce or attempt to induce any customer, supplier, licensee or business
relation of any Acquired Company to cease doing business with Buyer or such
Acquired Company, or in any way interfere with the relationship between Buyer or
an Acquired Company and any such customer, supplier, licensee or business
relation.

     (b) Remedies. Because of the difficulty of measuring economic losses to
Buyer as a result of a breach of the foregoing covenants, and because of the
immediate and irreparable damage that could be caused to Buyer for which it
would have no other adequate remedy, Seller hereby agrees that the foregoing
covenants may be enforced by Buyer in the event of breach of any of them, by
sanctions, restraining orders and other equitable actions and that Buyer will
not be obligated to post bond or other security in seeking such relief.

     (c) Severability; Reformation. The agreements and covenants in this Section
12.5 are severable and separate, and the unenforceability of any specific
covenant shall not affect the provisions of any other agreement or covenant.
Moreover, in the event any court of competent jurisdiction shall determine that
the scope, time or territorial restrictions set forth in this Section 12.5 are
unreasonable, then it is the intention of the parties that such restrictions be
in force to the fullest extent which such court deems reasonable, and this
Agreement shall thereby be reformed.

     (d) Independent Agreement. Seller hereby acknowledges that the covenants
set forth in this Section 12.5 are material conditions to Buyer's willingness to
execute and deliver this Agreement and to consummate the transactions
contemplated hereby. All of the agreements and covenants in this Section 12.5
shall be construed as an agreement independent of any other provision in this
Agreement, and the existence of any claim or cause of action of Seller against
Buyer, whether predicated on this Agreement or otherwise, shall not constitute a
defense to the enforcement by Buyer of such agreements and covenants.

     (e) Compensation. Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) of the purchase price


                                       65

<PAGE>

hereunder shall be deemed compensation to Seller for entering into the negative
covenants set forth in this Section 12.5.

     12.6 WAIVER

     The rights and remedies of the parties to this Agreement are cumulative and
not alternative. Neither the failure nor any delay by any party in exercising
any right, power, or privilege under this Agreement or the documents referred to
in this Agreement will operate as a waiver of such right, power, or privilege,
and no single or partial exercise of any such right, power, or privilege will
preclude any other or further exercise of such right, power, or privilege or the
exercise of any other right, power, or privilege. To the maximum extent
permitted by applicable law, (a) no claim or right arising out of this Agreement
or the documents referred to in this Agreement can be discharged by one party,
in whole or in part, by a waiver or renunciation of the claim or right unless in
writing signed by the other party; (b) no waiver that may be given by a party
will be applicable except in the specific instance for which it is given; and
(c) no notice to or demand on one party will be deemed to be a waiver of any
obligation of such party or of the right of the party giving such notice or
demand to take further action without notice or demand as provided in this
Agreement or the documents referred to in this Agreement.

     12.7 ENTIRE AGREEMENT AND MODIFICATION

     This Agreement supersedes all prior agreements between the parties with
respect to its subject matter and constitutes (along with the documents referred
to in this Agreement) a complete and exclusive statement of the terms of the
agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter. This Agreement
may not be amended except by a written agreement executed by the party to be
charged with the amendment.

     12.8 DISCLOSURE LETTER

     In the event of any inconsistency between the statements in the body of
this Agreement and those of the Disclosure Letter (other than an exception
expressly set forth as such in the Disclosure Letter with respect to a
specifically identified representation or warranty), the statements in the body
of this Agreement will control.

     12.9 ASSIGNMENTS, SUCCESSORS, AND NO THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS

     Neither party may assign any of their rights under this Agreement without
the prior consent of the other party, except (a) Buyer may assign its rights
hereunder to a wholly owned subsidiary, provided, however, that in the event of
any such assignment, Buyer shall remain unconditionally liable as a guarantor
for Buyer's obligations under this Agreement and (b) Buyer may grant a security
interest in its rights hereunder to any financial institution extending credit
to Buyer for the purpose of completing the Contemplated Transactions or with
respect to the operation of the Acquired Companies following the Closing.
Subject to the preceding sentence, this Agreement will apply to, be binding in
all respects upon, and inure to the benefit of the heirs, successors and
permitted assigns of the parties. Except as


                                       66

<PAGE>

aforesaid, nothing expressed or referred to in this Agreement will be construed
to give any Person other than the parties to this Agreement any legal or
equitable right, remedy, or claim under or with respect to this Agreement or any
provision of this Agreement. Except as aforesaid, this Agreement and all of its
provisions and conditions are for the sole and exclusive benefit of the parties
to this Agreement and their heirs, successors and assigns.

     12.10 SEVERABILITY

     If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable by any
court of competent jurisdiction, the other provisions of this Agreement will
remain in full force and effect and the parties hereto shall negotiate in good
faith to modify this Agreement to effect the original intent of the parties as
closely as possible so that the transaction contemplated hereby is fulfilled to
the extent possible. Any provision of this Agreement held invalid or
unenforceable only in part or degree will remain in full force and effect to the
extent not held invalid or unenforceable.

     12.11 SECTION HEADINGS, CONSTRUCTION

     The headings of Sections in this Agreement are provided for convenience
only and will not affect its construction or interpretation. All references to
"Section" or "Sections" refer to the corresponding Section or Sections of this
Agreement. All words used in this Agreement will be construed to be of such
gender or number as the circumstances require. Unless otherwise expressly
provided, the word "including" does not limit the preceding words or terms. The
parties have participated jointly in the negotiation and drafting of this
Agreement. In the event that an ambiguity or question of intent or
interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted jointly
by Buyer and Seller and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring
or disfavoring either party by virtue of authorship of any of the provisions of
this Agreement. Any reference to any federal, state, local, or foreign statute
or law shall be deemed also to refer to all rules and regulations promulgated
thereunder, unless the context requires otherwise.

     12.12 TIME OF ESSENCE

     With regard to all dates and time periods set forth or referred to in this
Agreement, time is of the essence.

     12.13 CONFIDENTIALITY; NO PUBLIC DISCLOSURE

     (a) Between the date of this Agreement and the Closing Date, Buyer and
Seller will maintain in confidence, and will cause the directors, officers,
employees, agents, and advisors of Buyer and Seller to maintain in confidence,
and not use to the detriment of another party or an Acquired Company any
written, or other information obtained in confidence from another party or an
Acquired Company in connection with this Agreement or the Contemplated
Transactions, unless (i) such information is already known to such party or to
others not bound by a duty of confidentiality or such information becomes
publicly available through no fault of such party, (ii) the use of such
information is


                                       67

<PAGE>

necessary or appropriate in making any filing or obtaining any consent or
approval required for the consummation of the Contemplated Transactions, or
(iii) the furnishing or use of such information is required by legal
proceedings.

     (b) If the Contemplated Transactions are not consummated, each party will

     (c) Neither Buyer nor Seller shall issue any press release or make any
public announcement relating to the Contemplated Transactions prior to the
Closing without the prior written approval of the other party; provided,
however, that either Buyer or Seller may make any public disclosure that it
believes is required by applicable law. In the event that either party
determines that an announcement is required by law, it will promptly: (i) notify
the other party in writing that it has made such a determination; (ii) provide
the other party with a written draft of the form of such announcement; (iii)
notify the other party of the proposed timing of such announcement; and allow
the other party the opportunity to make a similar contemporaneous public
announcement. The party that has determined that such an announcement is
required by law will complete actions (i) - (iii) as soon as reasonably
practicable and prior to the making of such public announcement.

     12.14 SUNTRUST LITIGATION

     The parties hereto understand and acknowledge that the Company and Seller
are currently parties to that certain litigation in the Circuit Court of DeKalb
County, Alabama, styled Williamson Oil Company, Inc. v. Suntrust Bank, Atlanta,
Suntrust Capital Markets, Inc., and Suntrust Robinson Humphrey, Civil Action No.
CV 2002-258 (the "SunTrust Litigation"). At all times following the date of
execution of this Agreement, Seller shall have full and complete control, in his
sole and absolute discretion, over the pursuit, prosecution, defense,
settlement, dismissal, or other resolution of the SunTrust Litigation, provided
that Seller shall promptly notify Buyer of any material developments in
connection therewith. Following the date of execution of this Agreement, the

litigation. Seller shall be entitled to any payments to the Company arising from
the SunTrust Litigation; provided, further, that any


                                       68

<PAGE>

payments to Seller under this Section 12.14 shall (i) be reduced by an amount
equal to the product of (a) the amount of such payment and (b) the actual
combined marginal effective federal and Alabama state income tax rate applicable
to corporations for the taxable year in which such payment is received and (ii)
be increased by the amount that Taxes otherwise due with respect to such
payments are reduced by reason of the availability under applicable Tax law of
any net operating loss carryforwards of the Acquired Companies as of the Closing
Date provided that for purposes of this clause (ii) the amount of such reduction
in Taxes shall be determined without regard to any utilization of the net
operating loss carryforwards of the Acquired Companies against income earned or
accrued in periods following the Closing Date. Seller shall indemnify and hold
harmless Buyer and the Company from and against any Damages to Buyer or the
Company arising from the SunTrust Litigation. Buyer shall first look to the
SunTrust Escrow Amount for any such indemnification and shall not make any claim
against Seller unless and until the SunTrust Escrow Amount has been exhausted.
The SunTrust Escrow Amount shall be released to Seller in full immediately upon
settlement and dismissal of the SunTrust Litigation or, in the absence of any
such settlement, upon entry of a final, non-appealable judgment in the
litigation and the satisfaction by Seller of any judgment entered in such case
(provided that all or a portion of the SunTrust Escrow Amount may be paid
directly from the escrow account holding such amount in order to satisfy of such
judgment).
