     3.   EXERCISABILITY OF OPTION.  Subject to the terms and conditions set
          ------------------------
forth in this Agreement and the Plan, the Option granted hereby shall become

     On or after the second anniversary        up to an additional Twenty Nine
     of the date of this Agreement             Thousand Eight Hundred and Eight
                                               (29,808) Shares

     On or after the third anniversary of      up to an additional Twenty Nine
     the date of this Agreement                Thousand Eight Hundred and Eight

     On or after the fourth anniversary of     up to an additional Twenty Nine
     the date of this Agreement                Thousand Eight Hundred and Eight
<PAGE>

     the date of this Agreement                (29,808) Shares

     The foregoing rights are cumulative and are subject to the other terms and
conditions of this Agreement and the Plan.

     Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in the Plan or this
Agreement, if Matthew Diamond, Samuel Gradess, and James Johnson collectively
cease to maintain an executive or senior management role in the Company while
the Participant is an employee of the Company ("Management Change"), the Option
shall accelerate and become fully exercisable immediately prior to the
effectiveness of such Management Change.

     4.   TERM OF OPTION.  The Option shall terminate ten (10) years from the
          --------------
 date of this Agreement, but shall be subject to earlier termination as provided
herein or in the Plan.

     If the Participant ceases to be an employee, director or consultant of the
Company or of an Affiliate (for any reason other than the death or Disability of
the Participant or termination of the Participant for "cause" (as defined in the
Plan)), the Option may be exercised, if it has not previously terminated, within
three (3) months after the date the Participant ceases to be an employee,
director or consultant of the Company or an Affiliate, or within the originally
prescribed term of the Option, whichever is earlier, but may not be exercised
thereafter. In such event, the Option shall be exercisable only to the extent
that the Option has become exercisable and is in effect at the date of such
cessation of employment, directorship or consultancy.

     Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of the Participant's Disability
or death within three (3) months after the termination of employment,
directorship or consultancy, the Participant or the Participant's Survivors may
exercise the Option within one (1) year after the date of the Participant's
termination of employment, directorship or consultancy, but in no event after
the date of expiration of the term of the Option.

     In the event the Participant's employment, directorship or consultancy is
terminated by the Company or an Affiliate for "cause" (as defined in the Plan),
the Participant's right to exercise any unexercised portion of this Option shall
cease as of such termination, and this Option shall thereupon terminate.
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if subsequent to the
Participant's termination, but prior to the exercise of the Option, the Board of
Directors of the Company determines that, either prior or subsequent to the
Participant's termination, the Participant engaged in conduct which would
constitute "cause," then the Participant shall immediately cease to have any
right to exercise the Option and this Option shall thereupon terminate.

     In the event of the Disability of the Participant, as determined in
accordance with the Plan, the Option shall be exercisable within one (1) year
after the Participant's termination of service or, if earlier, within the term
originally prescribed by the Option. In such event, the Option shall be
exercisable:

     (a)  To the extent exercisable but not exercised as of the date of
Disability; and

     (b)  In the event rights to exercise the Option accrue periodically, to the
extent of a pro rata portion of any additional rights to exercise the Option as
would have accrued had the

                                       2
<PAGE>

Participant not become Disabled prior to the end of the accrual period which
next ends following the date of Disability. The proration shall be based upon
the number of days during the accrual period prior to the date of Disability.

     In the event of the death of the Participant while an employee, director or
consultant of the Company or of an Affiliate, the Option shall be exercisable by
the Participant's Survivors within one (1) year after the date of death of the
Participant or, if earlier, within the originally prescribed term of the Option.
In such event, the Option shall be exercisable:

     (x)  To the extent exercisable but not exercised as of the date of death;
and

     (y)  In the event rights to exercise the Option accrue periodically, to the
extent of a pro rata portion of any additional rights to exercise the Option as
would have accrued had the Participant not died prior to the end of the accrual
period which next ends following the date of death. The proration shall be based
upon the number of days during the accrual period prior to the Participant's
death.

     5.   METHOD OF EXERCISING OPTION.  Subject to the terms and conditions
          ---------------------------
of this Agreement, the Option may be exercised by written notice to the Company
at its principal executive office, in substantially the form of Exhibit A
                                                                ---------
attached hereto.  Such notice shall state the number of Shares with respect to
which the Option is being exercised and shall be signed by the person exercising
the Option.  Payment of the purchase price for such Shares shall be made in
accordance with Paragraph 7 of the Plan.  The Company shall deliver a
certificate or certificates representing such Shares as soon as practicable
after the notice shall be received, provided, however, that the Company may
delay issuance of such Shares until completion of any action or obtaining of any
consent, which the Company deems necessary under any applicable law (including,
without limitation, state securities or "blue sky" laws).  The certificate or
certificates for the Shares as to which the Option shall have been so exercised
shall be registered in the name of the person or persons so exercising the
Option (or, if the Option shall be exercised by the Participant and if the
Participant shall so request in the notice exercising the Option, shall be
registered in the name of the Participant and another person jointly, with right
of survivorship) and shall be delivered as provided above to or upon the written
order of the person or persons exercising the Option.  In the event the Option
shall be exercised, pursuant to Section 4 hereof, by any person or persons other
than the Participant, such notice shall be accompanied by appropriate proof of
the right of such person or persons to exercise the Option.  All Shares that
shall be purchased upon the exercise of the Option as provided herein shall be
fully paid and nonassessable.

     6.   PARTIAL EXERCISE.  Exercise of this Option to the extent above stated
          ----------------
may be made in part at any time and from time to time within the above limits,
except that no fractional share shall be issued pursuant to this Option.

     7.   NON-ASSIGNABILITY.  The Option shall not be transferable by the
          -----------------
Participant otherwise than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution or
pursuant to a qualified domestic relations order as defined by the Code or Title
I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act or the rules thereunder.
Except as provided in the previous sentence, the Option shall be exercisable,
during the Participant's lifetime, only by the Participant (or, in the event of

                                       3
<PAGE>

legal incapacity or incompetency, by the Participant's guardian or
representative) and shall not be assigned, pledged or hypothecated in any way
(whether by operation of law or otherwise) and shall not be subject to
execution, attachment or similar process.  Any attempted transfer, assignment,
pledge, hypothecation or other disposition of the Option or of any rights
granted hereunder contrary to the provisions of this Section 7, or the levy of
any attachment or similar process upon the Option shall be hull and void.

     8.   NO RIGHTS AS STOCKHOLDER UNTIL EXERCISE.  The Participant shall have
          ---------------------------------------
no rights as a stockholder with respect to Shares subject to this Agreement
until registration of the Shares in the Company's share register in the name of
the Participant. Except as is expressly provided in the Plan with respect to
certain changes in the capitalization of the Company, no adjustment shall be
made for dividends or similar rights for which the record date is prior to the
date of such registration.

     9.   CAPITAL CHANGES AND BUSINESS SUCCESSIONS.  The Plan contains
          ----------------------------------------
provisions covering the treatment of Options in a number of contingencies such
as stock splits and mergers.  Provisions in the Plan for adjustment with respect
to stock subject to Options and the related provisions with respect to
successors to the business of the Company are hereby made applicable hereunder
and are incorporated herein by reference.

     10.  TAXES.  The Participant acknowledges that upon exercise of the Option
          -----
the Participant will be deemed to have taxable income measured by the difference
between the then fair market value of the Shares received upon exercise and the
price paid for such Shares pursuant to this Agreement. The Participant
acknowledges that any income or other taxes due from him or her with respect to
this Option or the Shares issuable pursuant to this Option shall be the
Participant's responsibility. The Participant agrees that the Company may
withhold from the Participant's remuneration, if any, the appropriate amount of
federal, state and local withholding attributable to such amount that is
considered compensation includable in such person's gross income. At the
Company's discretion, the amount required to be withheld may be withheld in cash
from such remuneration, or in kind from the Shares otherwise deliverable to the
Participant on exercise of the Option. The Participant further agrees that, if
the Company does not withhold an amount from the Participant's remuneration
sufficient to satisfy the Company's income tax withholding obligation, the
Participant will reimburse the Company on demand, in cash, for the amount under-
withheld.

     11.  PURCHASE FOR INVESTMENT.  Unless the offering and sale of the Shares
          -----------------------
to be issued upon the particular exercise of the Option shall have been
effectively registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as now in force or
hereafter amended (the "1933 Act"), the Company shall be under no obligation to
issue the Shares covered by such exercise unless and until the following
conditions have been fulfilled:

     (a)  The person(s) who exercise the Option shall warrant to the Company, at
the time of such exercise, that such person(s) are acquiring such Shares for
their own respective accounts, for investment, and not with a view to, or for
sale in connection with, the distribution of any such Shares, in which event the
person(s) acquiring such Shares shall be bound by the provisions of the
following legend which shall be endorsed upon the certificate(s) evidencing the
Shares issued pursuant to such exercise:

                                       4
<PAGE>

     "The shares represented by this certificate have been taken for
     investment and they may not be sold or otherwise transferred by any
     person, including a pledgee, unless (1) either (a) a Registration
     Statement with respect to such shares shall be effective under the
     Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or (b) the Company shall have
     received an opinion of counsel satisfactory to it that an exemption
     from registration under such Act is then available, and (2) there
     shall have been compliance with all applicable state securities
     laws;" and

     (b)  If the Company so requires, the Company shall have received an opinion
of its counsel that the Shares may be issued upon such particular exercise in
compliance with the 1933 Act without registration thereunder. Without limiting
the generality of the foregoing, the Company may delay issuance of the Shares
until completion of any action or obtaining of any consent, which the Company
deems necessary under any applicable law (including without limitation state
securities or "blue sky" laws).

     12.  RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFER OF SHARES.  If, in connection with a
          ----------------------------------
registration statement filed by the Company pursuant to the Securities Act, the
Company or its underwriter so requests, the Participant will agree not to sell
any Shares for a period not to exceed 180 days following the effectiveness of
such registration.

     13.  NO OBLIGATION TO MAINTAIN RELATIONSHIP.  The Company is not by the
          --------------------------------------
Plan or this Option obligated to continue the Participant as an employee,
director or consultant of the Company.

     14.  NOTICES.  Any notices required or permitted by the terms of this
          -------
Agreement or the Plan shall be given by hand delivery or by recognized courier

     15.  GOVERNING LAW.  This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in
          -------------
accordance with the law of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to the
conflict of law principles thereof.

     16.  BENEFIT OF AGREEMENT.  Subject to the provisions of the Plan and the
          --------------------
