INC. prior to the Merger. As a result of the Merger, each voting and nonvoting
common share of HADLEY, INC. outstanding immediately before the Effective Date
(as herein defined) shall, by virtue of the Merger and without any further

                  (a) Except as otherwise provided in this SECTION 1.2, the
         total number of shares of OSI Common Stock to be issued pursuant to
         the Merger shall be Twenty-one Thousand Seven Hundred Ninety-seven
         (21,797).

                  (b) If, between the date of this Agreement and the Closing
         Date or the Effective Date, as the case may be, (i) the outstanding
         shares of capital stock of HADLEY, INC. shall have been changed into a
         different number of shares or a different class by reason of any
         reclassification, recapitalization, split-up, combination, exchange of
         shares, or readjustment, with a record date within such period, or a
         stock dividend thereon shall be declared with a record date within
         such period or (ii) HADLEY, INC. shall have issued additional shares
         of its capital stock, the number of shares of OSI Common Stock
         received in exchange for each share of HADLEY, INC.'s capital stock

         Stock received in exchange for all shares of HADLEY, INC.'s capital
         stock (assuming no Dissenting Shares) remains at Twenty-one Thousand
         Seven Hundred Ninety-seven (21,797).

                  (c) If, between the date of this Agreement and the Closing
         Date or the Effective Date, as the case may be, the outstanding shares
         of OSI Common Stock shall have been changed into a different number of

         recapitalization, split-up, combination, exchange of shares, or
         readjustment, with a record date within such period, or a stock
         dividend thereon shall be declared with a record date within such
         period, the number of shares of OSI Common Stock received in exchange
         for each share of capital stock of HADLEY, INC. (as specified in

and expenses of PricewaterhouseCoopers (or other accounting firm) shall be paid
by the non-prevailing party.

         If, as finally determined, the sum of Subsection (a) above exceeds the
sum of Subsections (b) and (c), OSI shall pay such excess to HADLEY within ten
(10) days of such final determination. If, as finally determined, the sum of

after August 29, 2000.

         5.5 ADDITIONAL AGREEMENTS.

                  (a) Subject to the terms and conditions herein provided, each
         of the parties hereto agrees to use all reasonable efforts to take or
         cause to be taken, all actions and to do or cause to be done, all
         things necessary, proper or advisable under applicable laws and
         regulations to consummate and make effective the transactions
         contemplated by this Agreement, including using all reasonable efforts
         to obtain all necessary waivers, consents and approvals, to effect all
         necessary registrations and filings and to lift any injunction or
         other legal bar to the Merger (and, in such case, to proceed with the
         Merger as expeditiously as possible), subject, however, to the
         appropriate vote of the shareholders of HADLEY, INC.

                  (b) In case at any time after the Effective Date any further
         action is necessary or desirable to carry out the purposes of this
         Agreement, the proper officers and/or directors of OSI and Outback and
         HADLEY shall take all such necessary action.

                  (c) Neither Outback, OSI, HADLEY, INC. nor HADLEY shall take
         any action which would jeopardize the characterization of the Merger
         as a reorganization within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Code
         or the treatment of the Merger for financial reporting purposes as a
         pooling of interests.

                      COVENANTS OF HADLEY, INC. AND HADLEY

         HADLEY, INC. and HADLEY covenant and agree with OSI as follows:




                                      13
<PAGE>   18


         6.1 SECURITIES LAW COMPLIANCE. HADLEY represents, warrants and
covenants to Outback and OSI that:

                  (a) HADLEY has received all schedules and exhibits and the
         documents furnished to HADLEY, INC. pursuant to SECTION 4.8;

                  (b) HADLEY has had the opportunity to ask questions of and
         receive answers from representatives of the management of OSI
         concerning the terms and conditions of the transactions contemplated
         hereby and to obtain all additional information that OSI possesses or
         could acquire without unreasonable expense that is necessary to verify
         the accuracy of information furnished to HADLEY.

                  (c) OSI and Outback have furnished him with all information
         requested and full access to materials concerning OSI and Outback
         which HADLEY and/or his advisors deemed necessary to properly evaluate
         the Merger. Such information and access have been made available and
         utilized to the extent HADLEY considers necessary and advisable in
         making an informed investment decision, and HADLEY has consulted his
         own tax advisor and understands the evaluation of such materials may
         require the assistance of experts and HADLEY has utilized such experts
         to the extent deemed necessary.

                  (d) HADLEY understands that the OSI Common Stock to be
         received is an investment of a speculative nature and HADLEY must bear
         the risks thereof for an indefinite period of time. HADLEY has
         adequate means for providing for his needs, is able to bear the
         economic risk of the investment and has no need for liquidity in the
         OSI Common Stock to be received in the Merger.

                  (e) HADLEY and/or his representatives or advisors who have
         acted with or on behalf of HADLEY and who have advised HADLEY in this
         matter have such knowledge and experience in financial and business
         matters that HADLEY is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of
         the Merger for OSI Common Stock.

                  (f) HADLEY is participating in the Merger solely for his
         account as a private investment, and HADLEY has no present agreement,
         understanding, arrangement or intention to sell or transfer all or any
         portion of the shares of OSI Common Stock to be issued in the Merger
         to any other person or persons. HADLEY does not presently intend to
         enter into any such agreement or undertaking and there are no present
         circumstances which will compel HADLEY to sell any OSI Common Stock so
         received. HADLEY will not sell or otherwise transfer the shares
         (except for DE MINIMIS gifts of shares) unless they are registered
         under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or, in
         the opinion of OSI and its counsel, an exemption from registration is
         available therefor.

                  (g) The investment by HADLEY in OSI Common Stock pursuant to
         the Merger is a suitable investment for HADLEY given the investment
         goals and objectives of HADLEY.

                  (h) HADLEY agrees to indemnify and hold OSI and Outback and
         each of their respective officers, directors and advisors harmless
         against all liability arising out of or in connection with any




                                      14
<PAGE>   19


         purchase, resale or distribution by HADLEY of any OSI Common Stock
         received hereby which is effected other than in strict compliance with
         the terms hereof and applicable law.

                  (i) HADLEY understands that the shares of OSI Common Stock to
         be issued in the Merger will not be registered under the Securities
         Act, nor any state securities laws, and such OSI Common Stock may not
         be sold or transferred except in compliance with such laws. Neither
         OSI nor Outback will have any obligation to register any such OSI
         Common Stock.

                  (j) HADLEY understands that OSI will place an appropriate
         legend on the certificate representing OSI Common Stock to be received
         restricting the transfer of the shares and stop-transfer instructions
         will be given to the transfer agent for the OSI Common Stock with
         respect to such certificates.

                  (k) HADLEY is a natural person (i) whose net worth (the
         excess of total assets over total liabilities), individually or
         jointly with his spouse, exceeds $1,000,000 (inclusive of the value of
         home, home furnishings and automobiles); or (ii) who had an Individual
         Annual Adjusted Gross Income in excess of $200,000 in each of the two
         most recent tax years or joint income with HADLEY's spouse in excess
         of $300,000 in each of those years and reasonably expects to reach the
         same income level in the current tax year.

         6.2 PAYMENT OF LIABILITIES. HADLEY, INC. and HADLEY covenant and agree
that all debts and liabilities of HADLEY, INC. relating to periods prior to the
Closing Date shall be paid or satisfied in full prior to the Effective Date,
except only current liabilities and those debts and liabilities of HADLEY, INC.
assumed by Outback as specified in Item 6.2 of the Disclosure Schedules.

         6.3 POOLING. HADLEY agrees that until such time as financial results
of OSI covering at least thirty (30) days of combined operations of OSI and
HADLEY, INC. subsequent to the Effective Date have been published, he will not
sell or otherwise dispose of any shares of OSI Common Stock held by him as of
the Effective Date or any of such shares thereafter acquired by him at any time
or from time to time prior to the date of such publication. OSI shall give
instructions to its transfer agent and registrar, Bank of New York, Inc., with
respect to the shares of OSI Common Stock issued pursuant to the Merger, to the
effect that no transfer of such shares shall be effected until the date on
which the requisite financial results have been published and OSI and the
transfer agent may take any action, including placing an appropriate legend on
the certificates, they deem necessary to enforce this provision.

                                   ARTICLE 7

                          COVENANTS OF OSI AND OUTBACK

         OSI and Outback, jointly and severally, covenant and agree with
HADLEY, INC. and HADLEY as follows:

         7.1 EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS. Solely with respect to the Merger, and any
consequential termination of any partnership by operation of law, Outback
agrees not to elect to terminate the Employment Agreements between the
Partnership, as employer, and the general managers of the Partnership's Outback
Steakhouse(R) restaurants, as employees. Outback shall succeed to all rights
and obligations of the Partnership under such Employment Agreements. Nothing




                                      15
<PAGE>   20


contained herein shall be construed as in any way limiting Outback's right to
terminate any such Employment Agreement as a result of any circumstance or
event other than the Merger and consequential termination of the Partnership by
operation of law.

         7.2 ASSUMED LIABILITIES. OSI and Outback agree to assume and pay the
liabilities specified in Item 6.2 (subject to the amount limits specified in
Item 6.2 of the Disclosure Schedules) and to indemnify and hold harmless HADLEY
from any loss or liability therefor.

                                   ARTICLE 8

               JOINT CONDITIONS PRECEDENT TO CLOSING OBLIGATIONS

         Except as may be waived by OSI, the obligations of HADLEY, INC.,
HADLEY, OSI and Outback to consummate the transactions contemplated by this
Agreement shall be subject to the satisfaction, on or before the Closing Date,
of each of the following conditions:

         8.1 CONSENTS TO TRANSACTION. HADLEY, INC., Outback and OSI shall have
received all consents or approvals and made all applications, requests, notices
and filings with, any person, governmental authority or governmental agency
required to be obtained or made in connection with the consummation of the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement. There shall have been obtained
from all state and local governments and governmental agencies all approvals
and consents necessary to enable HADLEY, INC. and/or the Partnership, as
applicable, to transfer their liquor licenses and permits to Outback, to enable
Outback to assume such licenses and permits or to enable Outback to operate
restaurants (of the kind and quality customarily operated by Outback) using
such permits or licenses. Copies of all consents and approvals received by any
party pursuant to this SECTION 8.1 shall be furnished to the other party.

         8.2 ABSENCE OF LITIGATION. No governmental agency or authority shall
have instituted or threatened in writing to institute, any action or proceeding
seeking to delay, restrain, enjoin or prohibit the consummation of the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement and no order, judgment or decree by
any court or governmental agency or authority shall be in effect that enjoins,
restrains or prohibits the same or otherwise would materially interfere with
the operation of the assets and business of HADLEY, INC. or the Partnership or
OSI and its subsidiaries, including the surviving corporation in the Merger,
after the Closing Date.

         8.3 DISSENTER'S RIGHTS. The number of shares of capital stock of
HADLEY, INC. for which shareholders have exercised appraisal or dissenters'
rights under applicable law shall be a number which, in the sole and absolute
discretion of OSI, does not jeopardize the financial reporting and accounting
treatment of the Merger specified in SECTION 1.11 or is otherwise not contrary
to the best interests of Outback or OSI.

                                INDEMNIFICATION

         HADLEY, on the one hand, and OSI and Outback, jointly and severally,
on the other hand, agree as follows:

         11.1 INDEMNIFICATION BASED ON AGREEMENT. Subject to the limitations
contained in SECTION 11.2 hereof, HADLEY shall indemnify and hold harmless OSI,
Outback and HADLEY, INC., and OSI, Outback and HADLEY, INC., jointly and
severally, shall indemnify and hold harmless HADLEY, against any losses,
claims, damages or liabilities to which such indemnified party may become
subject, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in
respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon any facts or circumstances that
would constitute a breach by the other of any representation, warranty or
covenant contained herein or in any agreement executed pursuant hereto and will
reimburse any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by any indemnified
party in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim,
damage, liability or action.

         In addition to the above, HADLEY shall indemnify OSI, Outback and
HADLEY, INC., as provided in the first paragraph of this SECTION 11.1, against
any loss, claim, damage or liability arising out of (i) any tax liability of
HADLEY, INC. for any period prior to and including the Effective Date and (ii)
any debt of HADLEY, INC. (other than the debts specified in Item 6.2 of the
Disclosure Schedule to the extent assumed by Outback), and (iii) all claims,
obligations, causes of action and liabilities, of whatever kind or character,
of any of HADLEY, INC. which arise out of or are based upon events first
occurring on or before the Effective Date, except only the liabilities assumed
by Outback as specified in Item 6.2 of the Disclosure Schedule.

         11.2 LIMITATION. HADLEY shall have no obligation under SECTION 11.1 to
indemnify OSI, Outback or HADLEY, INC. for any liability, loss, claim or damage
arising out of or based upon facts or actions first occurring after the
Effective Date. All obligations of indemnity (other than those relating to tax
obligations of HADLEY, INC. under SECTION 11.1 above which shall continue for
the period specified in SECTION 12.4(B) hereof) shall terminate two (2) years
from the Closing Date; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, the obligations of indemnity shall
not terminate with respect to any matter for which indemnification is claimed
within two (2) years from the Closing Date.

         11.3 COOPERATION. If any claim, demand, action, suit, proceeding or
investigation arising out of or pertaining to this Agreement or the
transactions contemplated hereby is begun or asserted, whether begun or
asserted before or after the Closing Date, the parties hereto will cooperate
and use their best efforts to defend against and respond thereto.

         11.4 NOTICE. An indemnified party shall give notice to the
indemnifying party or parties within ten (10) business days after actual
receipt of service or summons to appear in any action begun in respect of which
indemnity may be sought hereunder. Failure to so notify the indemnifying party
or parties shall cause the indemnified party to be liable for any damage caused
by failure to give timely notice. The indemnifying party or parties may





                                      18
<PAGE>   23

participate at their own expense and with their counsel in the defense of such
action. If the indemnifying party or parties so elect within a reasonable time
after receipt of such notice, they may assume the defense of such action with
counsel chosen by the indemnifying party or parties and approved by the
indemnified party in such action, unless the indemnified party reasonably
objects to such assumption on the ground that its counsel has advised it that
there may be legal defenses available to it that are different from or in
addition to those available to the indemnifying party or parties, in which case
the indemnified party shall have the right to employ counsel approved by the
indemnifying party or parties. If the indemnifying party or parties assume the
defense of such action, the indemnifying party or parties shall not be liable
for fees and expenses of counsel for the indemnified party incurred thereafter
in connection with such action. In no event shall the indemnifying party or
parties be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one counsel for the
indemnified parties in connection with any one action or separate but similar
or related actions in the same jurisdiction arising out of the same general
allegations or circumstances unless, in the reasonable opinion of such counsel,
there is, under applicable standards of professional conduct, a conflict on any
significant issue between the positions of any two or more indemnified parties.

                  (a) by mutual consent of HADLEY, INC. and OSI;

                  (b) by OSI if there has been a material misrepresentation or
         breach of warranty in the representations and warranties of HADLEY,
         INC. or HADLEY set forth herein or if there has been any material
         failure on the part of HADLEY, INC. or HADLEY to comply with their
         obligations hereunder;

                  (c) by HADLEY, INC. if there has been a material

         material failure on the part of OSI or Outback to comply with their
         obligations hereunder;

                  (d) by either OSI, HADLEY, INC. or HADLEY, if the
         transactions contemplated by this Agreement have not been consummated
         by December 31, 2000, unless such failure of consummation is due to
         the failure of the terminating party to perform or observe the
         covenants, agreements and conditions hereof to be performed or
         observed by it at or before the Closing Date;

                  (e) by either OSI, HADLEY or HADLEY, INC. if the conditions
         precedent to its obligations to close this Agreement have not been
         satisfied or waived by it at or before the Closing Date; and

                  (f) by either OSI or HADLEY, INC., if the transactions
         contemplated hereby violate any nonappealable final order, decree or
         judgment of any court or governmental body or agency having competent
         jurisdiction.

         12.10 SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be
illegal, invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be fully severable and
this Agreement shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or
unenforceable provision were never a part hereof; the remaining provisions
hereof shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by the
illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance; and in lieu of
such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, there shall be added
automatically as part of this Agreement, a provision as similar in its terms to
such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision as may be possible and be
legal, valid and enforceable.

         12.11 HEADINGS. All headings and captions in this Agreement are
intended solely for the convenience of the parties and none shall be deemed to
affect the meaning or construction of any provision hereof.

         12.12 CONSTRUCTION. All references herein to the masculine, neuter or
singular shall be construed to include the masculine, feminine, neuter or
plural, where applicable.

         12.13 JURISDICTION AND VENUE. The parties agree that any action
brought by either party against the other in any court, whether federal or
state, shall be brought within the State of Florida in the judicial circuit in
which OSI has its principal place of business. Each party hereby agrees to
submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts and hereby waives all
questions of personal jurisdiction or venue for the purpose of carrying out
this provision, including, without limitation, the claim or defense therein
that such courts constitute an inconvenient forum.

         12.14 ENFORCEMENT. In the event it is necessary for any party to
retain legal counsel or institute legal proceedings to enforce the terms of
this Agreement, including, without limitation, obligations upon expiration or
termination, the prevailing party shall be entitled to receive from the
non-prevailing party, in addition to all other remedies, all costs of such
enforcement including, without limitation, attorney's fees and court costs and
including appellate proceedings.

         12.15 FURTHER ASSURANCES. Each party covenants and agrees to execute
and deliver, prior to or after the Merger, such further documents as may
reasonably be requested by another party to fully effectuate the transactions
provided for herein.

         12.16 EQUITABLE REMEDIES. The parties hereto acknowledge that a
refusal by a party to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby will
cause irreparable harm to the other parties, for which there may be no adequate
remedy at law. A party not in default at the time of such refusal shall be
entitled, in addition to other remedies at law or in equity, to specific
performance of this Agreement by the party that refused to consummate the
transactions contemplated hereby.

         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have executed this Agreement as
of the day and year first above written.
