        2.    Registration Rights    

        2.1.    Required Registrations.    

        (a)   At any time after (i) May 6, 2011, or (ii) six months following the Company's Initial Public Offering, whichever is earlier, a Stockholder or Stockholders holding in the aggregate at least 35% of the Registrable Shares may request, in writing, that the Company effect the registration on Form S-1 or Form S-2 (or any successor form) of Registrable Shares owned by such Stockholder or Stockholders.

        (b)   At any time after the Company becomes eligible to file a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (or any successor form relating to secondary offerings), a Stockholder or Stockholders holding in the aggregate at least 10% of the Registrable Shares may request, in writing, that the Company effect the registration on Form S-3 (or such successor form), of Registrable Shares having an aggregate value of at least $1,000,000 (based on the then current public market price).

        (c)   Upon receipt of any request for registration pursuant to this Section 2, the Company shall promptly give written notice of such proposed registration to all other Stockholders. Such Stockholders shall have the right, by giving written notice to the Company within 30 days after the Company provides its notice, to elect to have included in such registration such of their Registrable Shares as such Stockholders may request in such notice of election, subject in the case of an underwritten offering to the approval of the managing underwriter as provided in Section 2(d) below. Thereupon, the Company shall, as expeditiously as possible, use its reasonable best efforts to effect the registration on an appropriate registration form of all Registrable Shares which the Company has been requested to so register (provided, however, that in the case of a registration requested under Section 2.1(b), the Company will only be obligated to effect such registration on Form S-3 (or any successor form)).

        (d)   If the Initiating Holders intend to distribute the Registrable Shares covered by their request by means of an underwriting, they shall so advise the Company as a part of their request made pursuant to Section 2.1(a) or (b), as the case may be, and the Company shall include such information in its written notice referred to in Section 2.1(c). The right of any other Stockholder to include its Registrable Shares in such registration pursuant to Section 2.1(a) or (b), as the case may be, shall be conditioned upon such other Stockholder's participation in such underwriting on the terms set forth herein.

        If the Company desires that any securities of the Company held by officers and directors of the Company be included in any registration for an underwritten offering requested pursuant to Sections 2.1(a) or (b) or if other holders of securities of the Company who are entitled, by contract with the Company, to have securities included in such a registration (the "Other Holders") request such inclusion, the Company may include the securities of such officers, directors and Other Holders in such registration and underwriting on the terms set forth herein. The Company shall (together with all Stockholders, officers, directors and Other Holders proposing to distribute their securities through such underwriting) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form (including, without limitation, customary indemnification and contribution provisions on the part of the Company) with the managing underwriter. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 2.1(d), if the managing underwriter advises the Company that the inclusion of all shares requested to be registered would adversely affect the offering, the securities of the Company held by officers or directors of the Company (other than Registrable Shares) and the securities held by Other Holders (other than Registrable Shares) shall be excluded from such registration and underwriting to the extent deemed advisable by the managing underwriter, and if a further limitation of the number of shares is required, the number of shares that may be included in such registration

5



and underwriting shall be allocated among all holders of Registrable Shares requesting registration in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective number of Registrable Shares held by them at the time of the request for registration made by the Initiating Holders pursuant to Section 2.1(a) or (b), as the case may be. If any holder of Registrable Shares, officer, director or Other Holder who has requested inclusion in such registration as provided above disapproves of the terms of the underwriting, such person may elect to withdraw therefrom by written notice to the Company, and the securities so withdrawn shall also be withdrawn from registration. If the managing underwriter has not limited the number of Registrable Shares or other securities to be underwritten, the Company may include securities for its own account in such registration if the managing underwriter so agrees and if the number of Registrable Shares and other securities which would otherwise have been included in such registration and underwriting will not thereby be limited.

        (e)   The Initiating Holders shall have the right to select the managing underwriter(s) for any underwritten offering requested pursuant to Section 2.1(a) or (b), subject to the approval of the Company, which approval will not be unreasonably withheld.

        (f)    The Company shall not be required to effect more than two (2) registrations pursuant to Section 2.1(a). In addition, the Company shall not be required to effect any registration (other than on Form S-3 or any successor form relating to secondary offerings) within six months after the effective date of any other Registration Statement of the Company. For purposes of this Section 2.1(f), a Registration Statement shall not be counted until such time as such Registration Statement has been declared effective by the Commission (unless the Initiating Holders withdraw their request for such registration, other than as a result of information concerning the business or financial condition of the Company which is made known to the Stockholders after the date on which such registration was requested, and elect not to pay the Registration Expenses therefor pursuant to Section 2.4).

        (g)   If at the time of any request to register Registrable Shares by Initiating Holders pursuant to this Section 2.1, the Company is engaged or has plans to engage in a registered public offering or is engaged in any other activity which, in the good faith determination of the Company's Board of Directors, would be adversely affected by the requested registration, then the Company may at its option direct that such request be delayed for a period not in excess of 120 days from the date of such request, such right to delay a request to be exercised by the Company not more than once in any 12-month period.

        2.2.    Incidental Registration.    

        (a)   Whenever the Company proposes to file a Registration Statement (other than a Registration Statement filed pursuant to Section 2.1 or in connection with its Initial Public Offering), at any time and from time to time, it will, prior to such filing, give written notice to all Stockholders of its intention to do so; provided, however, that no such notice need be given if no Registrable Shares are to be included therein as a result of a determination of the managing underwriter pursuant to Section 2.2(b). Upon the written request of a Stockholder or Stockholders, given within 20 days after the Company provides such notice (which request shall state the intended method of disposition of such Registrable Shares or Common Stock, as applicable), the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause all Registrable Shares which the Company has been requested by such Stockholder or Stockholders to be registered under the Securities Act to the extent necessary to permit their sale or other disposition in accordance with the intended methods of distribution specified in such request; provided that the Company shall have the right to postpone or withdraw any registration effected pursuant to this Section 2.2 without obligation to any Stockholder.

6


        (b)   If the registration for which the Company gives notice pursuant to Section 2.2(a) is a registered public offering involving an underwriting, the Company shall so advise the Stockholders as a part of the written notice given pursuant to Section 2.2(a). In such event, the right of any Stockholder to include its Registrable Shares in such registration pursuant to Section 2.2 shall be conditioned upon such Stockholder's participation in such underwriting on the terms set forth herein. All Stockholders proposing to distribute their securities through such underwriting shall (together with the Company, Other Holders, and any officers or directors distributing their securities through such underwriting) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the underwriter or underwriters selected for the underwriting by the Company. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 2.2, if the managing underwriter determines that the inclusion of all shares requested to be registered would adversely affect the offering, the Company may limit (to zero) the number of Registrable Shares to be included in the registration and underwriting. The Company shall so advise all holders of Registrable Shares requesting registration, and the number of shares that are entitled to be included in the registration and underwriting shall be allocated in the following manner: the securities of the Company held by officers and directors of the Company (other than Registrable Shares) shall be excluded from such registration and underwriting to the extent deemed advisable by the managing underwriter, and, if a further limitation on the number of shares is required, the number of shares that may be included in such registration and underwriting shall be allocated among all Stockholders and Other Holders requesting registration in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective number of shares of Common Stock (on an as-converted basis) which they held at the time the Company gave the notice specified in Section 2.2(a). If any Stockholder or Other Holder would thus be entitled to include more securities than such holder requested to be registered, the excess shall be allocated among other requesting Stockholders and Other Holders pro rata in the manner described in the preceding sentence. If any holder of Registrable Shares or any officer, director or Other Holder disapproves of the terms of any such underwriting, such person may elect to withdraw therefrom by written notice to the Company, and any Registrable Shares or other securities excluded or withdrawn from such underwriting shall be withdrawn from such registration.

        (c)   The Company shall have the right to select the managing underwriter for any underwritten offering requested pursuant to Section 2.2, subject to the approval of the holders of 662/3% of the Registrable Shares, which approval will not be unreasonably withheld.

        2.3.    Registration Procedures.    

        (a)   If and whenever the Company is required by the provisions of this Agreement to use its reasonable best efforts to effect the registration of any Registrable Shares under the Securities Act, the Company shall:

        (i)    file with the Commission a Registration Statement with respect to such Registrable Shares and use its reasonable best efforts to cause that Registration Statement to become and remain effective for 120 days from the effective date or such lesser period until all such Registrable Shares are sold;

        (ii)   as expeditiously as possible prepare and file with the Commission any amendments and supplements to the Registration Statement and the Prospectus as may be necessary to comply with the provisions of the Securities Act (including the anti-fraud provisions thereof) and to keep the Registration Statement effective for 120 days from the effective date or such lesser period until all such Registrable Shares are sold;

        (iii)  as expeditiously as possible furnish to each Selling Stockholder such reasonable number of copies of the Prospectus, including any preliminary prospectus, in conformity

7



with the requirements of the Securities Act, and such other documents as such Selling Stockholder may reasonably request in order to facilitate the public sale or other disposition of the Registrable Shares owned by such Selling Stockholder.

        (iv)  as expeditiously as possible, use its reasonable best efforts, register or qualify the Registrable Shares covered by the Registration Statement under the securities or Blue Sky laws of such states as the Selling Stockholders shall reasonably request, and do any and all other acts and things that may be necessary or desirable to enable the Selling Stockholders to consummate the public sale or other disposition in such states of the Registrable Shares owned by the Selling Stockholder; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required in connection with this paragraph (iv) to qualify as a foreign corporation or execute a general consent to service of process in any jurisdiction;

        (v)   as expeditiously as possible, cause all such Registrable Shares to be listed on each securities exchange or automated quotation system on which similar securities issued by the Company are then listed;

        (vi)  promptly provide a transfer agent and registrar for all such Registrable Shares not later than the effective date of such registration statement;

        (vii) promptly make available for inspection by the Selling Stockholders, any managing underwriter participating in any disposition pursuant to such Registration Statement, and any attorney or accountant or other agent retained by any such underwriter or selected by the Selling Stockholders, all financial and other records, pertinent corporate documents and properties of the Company and cause the Company's officers, directors, employees and independent accountants to supply all information reasonably requested by any such seller, underwriter, attorney, accountant or agent in connection with such Registration Statement;

        (viii)  as expeditiously as possible, notify each Selling Stockholder of the time when such Registration Statement has become effective or a supplement to any Prospectus forming a part of such Registration Statement has been filed; and

        (ix)  as expeditiously as possible following the effectiveness of such Registration Statement, notify each Selling Stockholder of such Registrable Shares of any request by the Commission for the amending or supplementing of such Registration Statement or Prospectus.

        (b)   If the Company has delivered a Prospectus to the Selling Stockholders, and after having done so the Prospectus is amended to comply with the requirements of the Securities Act, the Company shall promptly notify the Selling Stockholders of such amendment and, if necessary, request that the Selling Stockholders immediately cease making offers of Registrable Shares and return all Prospectuses to the Company. The Company shall promptly provide the Selling Stockholders with revised Prospectuses and, following receipt of the revised Prospectuses, the Selling Stockholders shall be free to resume making offers of the Registrable Shares.

8


        (c)   In the event that, in the judgment of the Company, it is advisable to suspend use of a Prospectus included in a Registration Statement due to pending material developments or other events that have not yet been publicly disclosed and as to which the Company believes public disclosure would be detrimental to the Company, the Company shall notify all Selling Stockholders to such effect, and, upon receipt of such notice, each such Selling Stockholder shall immediately discontinue any sales of Registrable Shares pursuant to such Registration Statement until such Selling Stockholder has received copies of a supplemented or amended Prospectus or until such Selling Stockholder is advised in writing by the Company that the then current Prospectus may be used and has received copies of any additional or supplemental filings that are incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference in such Prospectus. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Company shall not exercise its rights under this Section 2.3(c) to suspend sales of Registrable Shares for a period in excess of 90 days in any 365-day period.

        (d)   As promptly as practicable after becoming aware thereof, notify each Selling Stockholder of the happening of any event of which the Company has knowledge, as a result of which the prospectus included in the Registration Statement, as then in effect, includes an untrue statement of a material fact or omits 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 were made, not misleading, and use its reasonable best efforts to promptly prepare and file with the Commission a supplement or amendment to the Registration Statement or other appropriate filing with the Commission to correct such untrue statement or omission, and deliver a number of copies of such supplement or amendment to each Selling Stockholder selling Registrable Securities pursuant to such Registration Statement as such Selling Stockholder may reasonably request.

        2.4.    Allocation of Expenses.    The Company will pay all Registration Expenses for all registrations under this Agreement; provided, however, that if a registration under Section 2.1 is withdrawn at the request of the Initiating Holders (other than as a result of information concerning the business or financial condition of the Company which is made known to the Stockholders after the date on which such registration was requested) and if the Initiating Holders elect not to have such registration counted as a registration requested under Section 2.1, the requesting Stockholders shall pay the Registration Expenses of such registration pro rata in accordance with the number of their Registrable Shares included in such registration. For purposes of this Section, the term "Registration Expenses" shall mean all expenses incurred by the Company in complying with this Agreement, including, without limitation, all registration and filing fees, exchange listing fees, printing expenses, fees and expenses of counsel for the Company and the fees and expenses of one counsel selected by the Selling Stockholders to represent the Selling Stockholders, state Blue Sky fees and expenses, and the expense of any special audits incident to or required by any such registration, but excluding underwriting discounts, selling commissions and the fees and expenses of Selling Stockholders' own counsel (other than the counsel selected to represent all Selling Stockholders).

        2.5.    Indemnification and Contribution.    

        (a)   In the event of any registration of any of the Registrable Shares under the Securities Act pursuant to this Agreement, the Company will indemnify and hold harmless the seller of such Registrable Shares, each of its directors, partners, and officers, each underwriter of such Registrable Shares, and each other person, if any, who controls such seller or underwriter within the meaning of the Securities Act or the Exchange Act against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which such seller, underwriter or controlling person may become subject under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, state securities or Blue Sky laws or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect

thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in any Registration Statement under which such Registrable Shares were registered under the Securities Act, any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained in the Registration Statement, or any amendment or supplement to such Registration Statement, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading; and the Company will reimburse such seller, underwriter and each such controlling person for any legal or any other expenses reasonably incurred by such seller, underwriter or controlling person in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action; provided, however, that the Company will not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage or liability arises out of or is based upon any untrue statement or omission made in such Registration Statement, preliminary prospectus or prospectus, or any such amendment or supplement, in reliance upon and in strict conformity with information regarding such seller, underwriter or controlling person furnished to the Company, in writing, by or on behalf of such seller, underwriter or controlling person, respectively, specifically for use in the preparation thereof or to the extent that such loss, claim, damage or liability arises out of such seller's failure to deliver a copy of the preliminary or final prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto.

        (b)   In the event of any registration of any of the Registrable Shares under the Securities Act pursuant to this Agreement, each seller of Registrable Shares, severally and not jointly, will indemnify and hold harmless the Company, each of its directors and officers and each underwriter (if any) and each person, if any, who controls the Company or any such underwriter within the meaning of the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which the Company, such directors and officers, underwriter or controlling person may become subject under the Securities Act, Exchange Act, state securities or Blue Sky laws or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement under which such Registrable Shares were registered under the Securities Act, any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained in the Registration Statement, or any amendment or supplement to the Registration Statement, or arise out of or are based upon any omission or alleged omission to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, if the statement or omission was made in reliance upon and in strict conformity with information relating to such seller furnished in writing to the Company by or on behalf of such seller specifically for use in connection with the preparation of such Registration Statement, prospectus, amendment or supplement; provided, however, that the obligations of a Stockholder hereunder shall be limited to an amount equal to the net proceeds to such Stockholder of Registrable Shares sold in connection with such registration.

        (c)   Each party entitled to indemnification under this Section (the "Indemnified Party") shall give notice to the party required to provide indemnification (the "Indemnifying Party") promptly after such Indemnified Party has actual knowledge of any claim as to which indemnity may be sought, and shall permit the Indemnifying Party to assume the defense of any such claim or any litigation resulting therefrom; provided, that counsel for the Indemnifying Party, who shall conduct the defense of such claim or litigation, shall be approved by the Indemnified Party (whose approval shall not be unreasonably withheld); and, provided, further, that the failure of any Indemnified Party to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations under this Section except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is adversely affected by such failure. The Indemnified Party may participate in such defense at such party's expense; provided, however, that the

10



Indemnifying Party shall pay such expense if representation of such Indemnified Party by the counsel retained by the Indemnifying Party would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between the Indemnified Party and any other party represented by such counsel in such proceeding; provided further that in no event shall the Indemnifying Party be required to pay the expenses of more than one law firm per jurisdiction as counsel for the Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party also shall be responsible for the expenses of such defense if the Indemnifying Party does not elect to assume such defense. No Indemnifying Party, in the defense of any such claim or litigation shall, except with the consent of each Indemnified Party, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnified Party of a release from all liability in respect of such claim or litigation, and no Indemnified Party shall consent to entry of any judgment or settle such claim or litigation without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

        (d)   In order to provide for just and equitable contribution in circumstances in which the indemnification provided for in this Section 2.5 is due in accordance with its terms but for any reason is held to be unavailable to an Indemnified Party in respect to any losses, claims, damages and liabilities referred to herein, then the 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 losses, claims, damages or liabilities to which such party may be subject in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Company on the one hand and the Stockholders on the other in connection with the statements or omissions which resulted in such losses, claims, damages or liabilities, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the Company and the Stockholders shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of material fact related to information supplied by the Company or the Stockholders and the parties' relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission. The Company and the Stockholders agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 2.5 were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to above. Notwithstanding the provisions of this paragraph of Section 2.5, (a) in no case shall any one Stockholder be liable or responsible for any amount in excess of the net proceeds received by such Stockholder from the offering of Registrable Shares and (b) the Company shall be liable and responsible for any amount in excess of such proceeds; provided, however, that 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. Any party entitled to contribution will, promptly after receipt of notice of commencement of any action, suit or proceeding against such party in respect of which a claim for contribution may be made against another party or parties under this Section 2.5, notify such party or parties from whom contribution may be sought, but the omission so to notify such party or parties from whom contribution may be sought shall not relieve such party from any other obligation it or they may have thereunder or otherwise under this Section. No party shall be liable for contribution with respect to any action, suit, proceeding or claim settled without its prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

        2.6.    Other Matters with Respect to Underwritten Offerings.    In the event that Registrable Shares are sold pursuant to a Registration Statement in an underwritten offering pursuant to Section 2.1, the Company agrees to (a) enter into an underwriting agreement containing customary representations and warranties with respect to the business and operations of the Company and customary covenants and agreements to be performed by the Company, including without

11


limitation customary provisions with respect to indemnification by the Company of the underwriters of such offering; (b) use its reasonable best efforts to cause its legal counsel to render customary opinions to the underwriters with respect to the Registration Statement; and (c) use its reasonable best efforts to cause its independent public accounting firm to issue customary "cold comfort letters" to the underwriters with respect to the Registration Statement.

        2.7.    Information by Holder.    As a condition to the Company's obligation to register the Registrable Shares of any holder, such holder shall furnish to the Company such information regarding such holder and the distribution proposed by such holder as the Company may reasonably request in writing and as shall be required in connection with any registration, qualification or compliance referred to in this Agreement.

        2.8.    "Stand-Off" Agreement; Confidentiality of Notices.    Each Stockholder agrees not to sell or otherwise transfer or dispose of any Registrable Shares or other securities of the Company held by such Stockholder for a period specified by the representative of the underwriters of Common Stock or other securities of the Company not to exceed 180 days following the effective date of a Registration Statement for an offering by the Company of Common Stock or other securities of the Company, which period may be extended upon the request of the managing underwriter, to the extent required by any NASD rules, for an additional period of up to fifteen days if the Company issues or proposes to issue an earnings or other public release within fifteen days of the expiration of the 180-day period. Each Stockholder agrees to execute a "lock-up" agreement with the Company and the underwriters of such offering confirming such agreement if requested by the Company; provided that:

        (a)   such agreements set forth in this Section 2.8 shall only apply to the Initial Public Offering of Common Stock of the Company to be sold by or on behalf of the Company in an underwritten offering and shall not apply to the sale of any shares to an underwriter pursuant to an underwriting agreement; and

        (b)   all stockholders of the Company then holding at least 5% of the outstanding Common Stock (on an as-converted basis) and all officers and directors of the Company enter into similar agreements.

        As a condition to the obligation of the Stockholders under this Section 2.8, the Company agrees to use its reasonable best efforts to ensure that the "lock-up" obligation of the Stockholders under this Section 2.8, and any agreement entered into by the Stockholders as a result of their obligations under this Section 2.8, shall (i) allow for periodic early releases of portions of the securities subject to such "lock-up" obligations, which may be conditioned upon the trading price of the Company's Common Stock and (ii) provide that all Stockholders will participate on a pro-rata basis in any early release of any stockholder.

        The Company may impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to the Registrable Shares or other securities subject to the foregoing restriction until the end of such 180-day period.

        Any Stockholder receiving any written notice from the Company regarding the Company's plans to file a Registration Statement shall treat such notice confidentially and shall not disclose such information to any person other than as necessary to exercise its rights under this Agreement.

        2.9.    Limitations on Subsequent Registration Rights.    The Company shall not, without the prior written consent of the Investors holding at least 662/3% of the Registrable Shares then held by all Investors, enter into any agreement (other than this Agreement) with any holder or prospective holder of any securities of the Company which grant such holder or prospective holder rights to include securities of the Company in any Registration Statement, unless (a) such rights to include securities in a registration initiated by the Company or by Stockholders are not more favorable than the rights granted to Other Holders under this Agreement and (b) no rights are granted to

12



initiate a registration prior to the date six months following the date which Investors may initiate a negotiation as set forth herein.

        2.10.    Rule 144 Requirements.    After the earliest of (i) the closing of the sale of securities of the Company pursuant to a Registration Statement, (ii) the registration by the Company of a class of securities under Section 12 of the Exchange Act, or (iii) the issuance by the Company of an offering circular pursuant to Regulation A under the Securities Act, the Company agrees to:

        (a)   make and keep current public information about the Company available, as those terms are understood and defined in Rule 144;

        (b)   use its reasonable best efforts to file with the Commission in a timely manner all reports and other documents required of the Company under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act (at any time after it has become subject to such reporting requirements); and

        (c)   furnish to any holder of Registrable Shares upon request (i) a written statement by the Company as to its compliance with the reporting requirements of Rule 144 and of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act (at any time after it has become subject to such reporting requirements), (ii) a copy of the most recent annual or quarterly report of the Company, and (iii) such other reports and documents of the Company as such holder may reasonably request to avail itself of any similar rule or regulation of the Commission allowing it to sell any such securities without registration.

        2.11.    Termination.    All of the Company's obligations to register Registrable Shares under Sections 2.1 and 2.2 of this Agreement shall terminate three years after the closing of the Initial Public Offering.

        3.    Right Of First Refusal    

        3.1.    Rights of Investors.    

        (a)   The Company shall not issue, sell or exchange, agree to issue, sell or exchange, or reserve or set aside for issuance, sale or exchange, (i) any shares of its Common Stock, (ii) any other equity securities of the Company, including, without limitation, shares of preferred stock, (iii) any option, warrant or other right to subscribe for, purchase or otherwise acquire any equity securities of the Company, or (iv) any debt securities convertible into capital stock of the Company (collectively, the "Offered Securities"), unless in each such case the Company shall have first complied with this Section 3.1. The Company shall deliver to each Investor and M.I.T. in accordance with Section 8(d) below a written notice of any proposed or intended issuance, sale or exchange of Offered Securities (the "Offer"), which Offer shall (i) identify and describe the Offered Securities, (ii) describe the price and other terms upon which they are to be issued, sold or exchanged, and the number or amount of the Offered Securities to be issued, sold or exchanged, (iii) identify the persons or entities (if known) to which or with which the Offered Securities are to be offered, issued, sold or exchanged and (iv) offer to issue and sell to or exchange with such Investor and M.I.T. (I) (A) in the case of an Investor, such portion of the Offered Securities as is equal to (1) 75% of the Offered Securities multiplied by (2) a fraction, the numerator of which is the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock issued or issuable upon conversion of the Shares held by such Investor and the denominator of which is the total number of shares of Common Stock issued or issuable upon conversion of the Shares held by all Investors and (B) in the case of M.I.T. solely in its capacity as a holder of the M.I.T. Shares, a pro rata portion of the Offered Securities determined by dividing the aggregate number of M.I.T. Shares then held by M.I.T. by the total number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding (giving effect to the conversion of all outstanding convertible securities of the Company) (in either case (A) or (B), the "Basic Amount"), and (II) in the case of an Investor, any additional portion of the

13


Offered Securities attributable to the aggregate Basic Amount of other Investors as such Investor shall indicate it will purchase or acquire should any other Investor subscribe for less than its Basic Amount (the "Undersubscription Amount"). If more than one Investor indicates that it wishes to purchase the Undersubscription Amount, or a portion thereof, and the Undersubscription Amount is not sufficient to allow all such Investors to purchase the amounts indicated, the Undersubscription Amount shall be allocated among such Investors pro rata according to the number of shares of Common Stock issued or issuable upon conversion of the Shares held by each Investor. Each Investor shall have the right, for a period of thirty (30) days following the delivery to such Investor of written notice of such Offer, to purchase or acquire, at the price and upon the other terms specified in the Offer, the number and amount of Offered Securities described above.

        (b)   To accept an Offer, in whole or in part, an Investor and/or M.I.T. must deliver a written notice to the Company prior to the end of the 30-day period of the Offer, setting forth the portion of his or its Basic Amount that such Investor and/or M.I.T. elects to purchase and, in the case of Investors, if such Investor shall elect to purchase all of its Basic Amount, the Undersubscription Amount (if any) that such Investor elects to purchase (the "Notice of Acceptance"). If the Basic Amounts subscribed for by all Investors are less than the total of all of the Basic Amounts available for purchase by Investors, then each Investor who has set forth an Undersubscription Amount in its Notice of Acceptance shall be entitled to purchase, in addition to the Basic Amount it subscribed for, the Undersubscription Amount it has subscribed for; provided, however, that if more than one Investor indicates that it wishes to purchase the Undersubscription Amount, or a portion thereof, and the Undersubscription Amount is not sufficient to allow all such Investors to purchase the amounts indicated, the Undersubscription Amount shall be allocated among such Investors pro rata according to the number of shares of Common Stock issued or issuable upon conversion of the Shares held by each Investor.

        (c)   The Company shall have 90 days from the expiration of the period set forth in Section 3.1(b) above to issue, sell or exchange all or any part of such Offered Securities as to which a Notice of Acceptance has not been given by the Investors or M.I.T. (the "Refused Securities"), but only to the offerees or purchasers described in the Offer (if so described therein) and only upon (i) the same unit prices and interest rates and (ii) terms and conditions which are not more favorable, in the aggregate, to the acquiring person or persons or less favorable to the Company, in each case, than those set forth in the Offer.

        (d)   In the event the Company shall propose to sell less than all the Refused Securities (any such sale to be in the manner and on the terms specified in Section 3.1(c) above), then each Investor and M.I.T. may, at its sole option and in its sole discretion, reduce the number or amount of the Offered Securities specified in its Notice of Acceptance to an amount that shall be not less than the number or amount of the Offered Securities that the Investor or M.I.T. elected to purchase pursuant to Section 3.1(b) above multiplied by a fraction, (i) the numerator of which shall be the number or amount of Offered Securities the Company actually proposes to issue, sell or exchange (including Offered Securities to be issued or sold to Investors pursuant to Section 3.1(b) above prior to such reduction) and (ii) the denominator of which shall be the original amount of the Offered Securities. In the event that any Investor or M.I.T. so elects to reduce the number or amount of Offered Securities specified in its Notice of Acceptance, the Company may not issue, sell or exchange more than the reduced number or amount of the Offered Securities unless and until such securities have again been offered to the Investors and M.I.T. in accordance with Section 3.1(a) above.

        (e)   Upon the closing of the issuance, sale or exchange of all or less than all of the Refused Securities, the Investors and M.I.T. shall acquire from the Company, and the

14



Company shall issue to the Investors and M.I.T., the number or amount of Offered Securities specified in the Notices of Acceptance, as reduced pursuant to Section 3.1(d) above if the Investors or M.I.T. have so elected, upon the terms and conditions specified in the Offer. The purchase by the Investors and M.I.T. of any Offered Securities is subject in all cases to the preparation, execution and delivery by the Company, the Investors and M.I.T. of a purchase agreement relating to such Offered Securities reasonably satisfactory in form and substance to the Investors, M.I.T. and the Company.

        (f)    Any Offered Securities not acquired by the Investors, M.I.T. or other persons in accordance with Section 3.1(c) above may not be issued, sold or exchanged until they are again offered to the Investors and M.I.T. under the procedures specified in this Agreement.

        (g)   The rights of the Investors and M.I.T. under this Section 3 shall not apply to:

        (i)    Common Stock issued as a stock dividend or distribution to holders of Common Stock, Series A Preferred, Series A-1 Preferred, Series B Preferred, Series B-1 Preferred, Series C Preferred, Series D Preferred or Series E Preferred or upon any subdivision or combination of shares of Common Stock, Series A Preferred, Series A-1 Preferred, Series B Preferred, Series B-1 Preferred, Series C Preferred, Series D Preferred or Series E Preferred;

        (v)   securities sold by the Company in an underwritten public offering pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act;

15


        (vii) the issuance of the M.I.T. Shares;
