("CAIS"), CIBA Merger Corp., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), Business
Anywhere, USA, Inc., a California corporation ("BAC"), Kim Kao ("Mr. Kao") and

together, the "Shareholders").

                                    RECITALS

     A.  The respective Boards of Directors of each of the Company, CAIS and BAC
have determined that it is in the best interests of their respective companies
and their shareholders that the Company and BAC combine into a single company
through the statutory merger of the Company with and into BAC, with BAC as the
surviving corporation (the "Merger").

     B.  The Shareholders jointly own all of the issued and outstanding capital
stock of BAC, being 10,000,000 shares of common stock, no par value (the "BAC
Stock").

     C.  CAIS, as the sole shareholder of the Company, has approved this
Agreement, the Merger and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement
pursuant to action taken by unanimous written consent in accordance with the
requirements of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware ("DGCL")
and the Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Company.

     D.  Pursuant to the Merger, among other things, the outstanding shares of
BAC Stock shall be exchanged for shares of CAIS common stock, par value $0.01
per share ("CAIS Common Stock").

     E.  The parties to the Agreement intend that the Merger qualify as a
"reorganization," within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue
Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), and that BAC, the Company and CAIS will
each be a "party to a reorganization," within the meaning of Section 368(b) of
the Code, with respect to the Merger.

     F.  Certain capitalized terms used in this Agreement are defined on Exhibit
                                                                         -------

of CAIS Common Stock equal to (i) One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) divided by
(ii) the average closing price of the CAIS Common Stock on the Nasdaq Stock
Market for the ten (10) trading days immediately preceding the First Anniversary

                                  -------------------------------
and together with the First Additional Consideration, the "Additional
                                                           ----------
Consideration"); provided, however, that between the First Anniversary Date and
-------------    --------  -------
the Second Anniversary Date, Surviving Corporation shall have achieved revenues
of at least One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) pursuant to the proposed budget set
forth in Exhibit B hereto.
         ---------

no counterclaims, offsets and defenses with respect thereto. The aggregate of
all contracts or commitments for the purchase of products by BAC does not exceed

defined in section 368(c) of the Code, will be exchanged solely for voting stock

     7.3  Tax Indemnity.

     (a)  From and after the Closing Date until the statutory period of
limitations (taking into account any extensions or waivers thereof) for the
assessment of Taxes covered by this Section 7.3 has expired, the Indemnitors
                                    -----------
shall protect, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Indemnitees from any and all
Taxes which are imposed on BAC in respect of its income, business, property or
operations or for which BAC may otherwise be liable (i) for any taxable period
ending prior to the Closing Date and for any Pre-Closing Period (as defined and
determined in Section 7.3(b)), (ii) resulting by reason of the
              --------------
several liability of BAC pursuant to Treasury Regulations section 1.1502-6 or
any analogous state, local or foreign law or regulation or by reason of BAC
having been a member of any consolidated, combined or unitary group on or prior
to the Closing Date, (iii) in respect of any date after the Closing Date ("Post-
                                                                           ----
Closing Period"), where such Taxes are attributable to events, transactions,
---------------
sales, deposits, services or rentals occurring, received or performed in a Pre-
Closing Period that are properly allocable to a Pre-Closing Period, (iv) in
respect of any Post-Closing Period, attributable to any change in accounting
method employed by BAC during any of its two (2) previous taxable years, (v) in
respect of any Post-Closing Period, attributable to any items of income or gain
of a partnership reporting BAC as a partner, to the extent such items are
properly attributable to periods of the partnership ending on or before the
Closing Date, or (vi) resulting from the breach of the Shareholders'
representations and warranties set forth in Section 3.16 (Taxes) hereof;
                                            ------------
provided, however, that the Indemnitors' Liability under the foregoing
-----------------
provisions of this Section 7.3 shall be reduced as to any item to the
                   -----------
extent that such item was specifically and fully reserved for in the June
1999 Financial Statements.

     (b) In order appropriately to apportion any of these Taxes relating to a
period that includes (but that would not, but for this section, close on) the
Closing Date ("Straddle Period"), the parties hereto will, to the extent
permitted by applicable law, elect with the relevant taxing authorities to treat
for all purposes the Closing Date as the last day of a taxable period of BAC,
and such period shall be treated as the "Pre-Closing Period" for
                                         ------------------
purposes of this Agreement. In any case where applicable law does not permit BAC
to treat the Closing Date as the last day of a taxable period, then for purposes
of this Agreement, the portion of such Taxes that is attributable to the
operations of BAC for the Pre-Closing Period shall be (i) in the case of Taxes
that are not based on income or gross receipts, the total amount of such Taxes
for the period in question multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is
the number of days in the period prior to and including the Closing Date, and
the denominator of which is the total number of days in the entire period in
question, and (ii) in the case of Taxes that are based on income or gross
receipts, the Taxes that would be due with respect to the period based on
closing of the books.

     7.4  General Indemnity Procedures.

     (a)  In the event that at any time or from time to time after the Closing
Date an Indemnitee shall sustain a loss of any nature whatsoever against which
such Indemnitee is indemnified under this Agreement, such Indemnitee shall
notify the Indemnitors in writing of any such loss so sustained. The Indemnitors
agree to pay such Indemnitee the amount of such loss so sustained within thirty
(30) days after transmittal of such notice, subject to his right to contest any
claim which has not yet resulted in a loss, as hereinafter provided in Section
                                                                       -------
7.4(b); provided, that if the Indemnitors, in good faith, and within thirty
----------------
(30) days of receipt of the

                                       29
<PAGE>

written notice from the Indemnitee seeking indemnification, notify in writing
the Indemnitee of his objections to the claim for indemnification, the rights of
the Indemnitee seeking indemnification with respect to such claim shall be
determined by binding arbitration pursuant to the procedures set forth in
Section 11.2 hereof.
------------

     (b) An Indemnitee shall promptly notify the Indemnitors of the existence of
any claim, demand, or other matter involving Liabilities to third parties to
which the Indemnitors' indemnification obligations would apply and shall give
the Indemnitors a reasonable opportunity to defend the same or prosecute such
action to conclusion or settlement satisfactory to the Indemnitee at the
Indemnitors' own expense and with counsel of the Indemnitors' own selection (who
shall be approved by the Indemnitee, which approval shall not be unreasonably
withheld); provided that the Indemnitee
           --------
shall at all times also have the right to fully participate in the defense at
its own expense. If the Indemnitors shall, within a reasonable time after said
notice, fail to defend, the Indemnitee shall have the right, but not the
obligation, to undertake the defense of, and to compromise or settle (exercising
reasonable business judgment) the claim or other matter on behalf, for the
account, and at the risk and expense of the Indemnitors. Except as provided in
the preceding sentence, the Indemnitee shall not compromise or settle the claim
or other matter without the prior written consent of the Indemnitors, which
shall not be unreasonably withheld. If the claim is one that cannot by its
nature be defended solely by the Indemnitors, the Indemnitee shall make
available all information and assistance that the Indemnitor may reasonably
request; provided that any
         --------
associated, reasonable expenses shall be paid by the Indemnitors. The amount of
any claim under this Article VII to which the Indemnitor's
                     -----------
obligations may apply may be withheld by CAIS from any Additional Consideration
payment owing to the Shareholders under Section 2.1 pending settlement or
                                        -----------
compromise of such claim or final judgment being rendered thereon. Pursuant to
the terms of the Escrow Agreement, Indemnitee may also bring claims for any
indemnification arising under this Article VII against the Escrow Amount.
                                   -----------

     (c)  If the Indemnitors contest or challenge any claim or action asserted
against Indemnitee referred to in this Article, they shall do so at their
                                       -------
own cost and expense, holding Indemnitee harmless from and against all costs,
fees, expenses, debts, Liabilities and charges in connection with such contest;
shall diligently defend against any such claim; and shall hold Indemnitee's
business and assets free and harmless from any attachment, execution, judgment,
lien or other legal process.

     (d)  Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 7.4, the
                                                           -----------
procedure for indemnity with respect to Taxes shall be governed by Section 7.5.
                                                                   -----------
     7.5  Tax Indemnity Procedures.

     CAIS will, as to any Taxes in respect of which the Indemnitors have agreed
to indemnify Indemnitees, promptly inform the Indemnitors of, and permit the
participation of the Indemnitors in, any investigation, audit or other
proceeding by or with the Internal Revenue Service or any other taxing authority
empowered to administer or enforce such a Tax and will not consent to the
settlement or final determination in such proceeding without the prior written
consent of the Indemnitors (which consent will not be unreasonably withheld).

     7.6  Limitations on Indemnification.

     Notwithstanding the foregoing, the right to indemnification under this
Article VII shall be subject to the following terms:
-----------

     (a)  No indemnification shall be payable pursuant to this Article VII
                                                          -----------
unless and until the amount of all claims for indemnification pursuant to this
Article VII exceeds Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) in the aggregate, whereupon
-----------
indemnification pursuant to such Section shall be payable for all losses,
including the first Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000), in accordance with the terms
hereof; provided, however, that the total liability for indemnification pursuant
to this Article VII shall not exceed, in the aggregate, the aggregate amount of
the Consideration paid to the Shareholders pursuant to this Agreement, net of
any taxes paid or due and payable by the Shareholders with respect thereto.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in the Escrow Agreement, none
of the provisions of this Agreement or of any other Transactional Agreement
shall in any manner limit the liability of BAC or the Shareholders or any Person
who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of BAC prior to the
Effective Time, with respect to (i) fraud, (ii) intentional misrepresentation,
(iii) criminal matters or (iv) indemnification with respect to Taxes as set
forth in Section 7.3 above.

     (b) No indemnification shall be payable pursuant to this Article VII, or
                                                               -----------
the indemnification obligation shall be reduced, in respect of any claim for
breach of any of the warranties, representations or covenants in this
Agreement, if and to the extent specific provision or specific reserve for
or in respect of the Liability or other matter giving rise to the claim has
been made in the June 1999 Financial Statements, except that this
limitation shall not apply to the indemnity with respect to Taxes set forth
in Section 7.3.
   -----------

     (c) In determining the amount of any indemnity, there shall be taken into
account any insurance proceeds or other similar recovery or offset realized,
directly or indirectly, by the party to be indemnified.

     (d) In the event that the Shareholders are obliged to indemnify CAIS
or the Company for any Liabilities, obligations, losses, claims, damages, costs,
charges or other expenses under this Article VII, the amount of any such
                                     -----------
Liabilities, obligations, losses, claims, damages, costs, charges or other
expenses, to the extent they reduce BAC's revenues, shall be disregarded (i.e.,
they shall be "added back") when determining the amount of BAC's revenues for
purposes of Sections 2.1(c) and (d).

     7.7  Treatment of Indemnification Payments.

     All payments pursuant to this Article VII will be, and will be treated as,
adjustments to the purchase price for the BAC Stock.

     7.8  Remedies.

     The rights and remedies of CAIS and the Company to indemnification under
this Article VII shall (except as provided in Sections 9.4 and 10.2, and except
     -----------
with respect to Liabilities for (i) fraud, (ii) intentional misrepresentation or
(iii) criminal matters) be the sole and exclusive rights and remedies that CAIS
and the Company have against the Shareholders for Liabilities,

                                       31
<PAGE>

obligations, losses, claims, damages, costs, charges or other expenses arising
out of or resulting from any of the warranties, representations or covenants of
BAC or the Shareholders contained in this Agreement being incorrect, untrue or
breached.

     7.9  Off-Set.

     In addition to any other rights of off-set or other rights CAIS or the
Company may have at common law or otherwise, CAIS or the Company may off-set any
obligation to pay any amount due to the Shareholders, including without
limitation the Additional Consideration, against any indemnity payment due to
CAIS or the Company hereunder.

                                 ARTICLE VIII.


                  SURVIVAL OF REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND
               COVENANTS OF CAIS AND THE COMPANY; INDEMNIFICATION
                            BY CAIS AND THE COMPANY

     8.1  Survival.

     The representations, warranties and covenants of CAIS and the Company
contained in this Agreement or in any certificate or schedule or instrument
delivered pursuant hereto, shall survive until the First Anniversary Date,
except the representation in Section 4.2 shall survive until any Liability
                             -----------
thereunder is barred by all applicable statutes of limitation, including waivers
and extensions thereof.

     8.2  Indemnity.

     CAIS and the Company (also referred to herein as "CAIS Indemnitor") agree
to indemnify, and hold the Shareholders and BAC and their successors and
permitted assigns harmless from and against any and all Liabilities,
obligations, losses, claims, damage, cost, charges or other expenses of every
kind and character (including but not limited to attorneys' fees and litigation
costs), which may accrue or be sustained by the Shareholders or BAC arising out
of or any of the warranties, representations or covenants of CAIS or the Company
contained in this Agreement being incorrect, untrue or breached.

     8.3  Indemnity Procedures.

     In the event that at any time or from time to time after the Closing Date,
the Shareholders shall sustain a loss of any nature whatsoever against which the
Shareholders are indemnified under this Agreement, the Shareholders shall notify
CAIS in writing of any such loss so sustained, and CAIS shall within thirty (30)
days after transmittal of such notice pay to the Shareholders the amount of such
loss so sustained, subject to its right to contest any claim which has not yet
resulted in a loss, in a manner similar to the provisions of Section 7.4(b)
                                                            ---------------
hereof; provided that if the CAIS shall, in good faith, notify the Shareholders
        --------
in writing of its objections to a claim of indemnification within thirty (30)
days of receipt of the written notice from the Shareholders seeking
indemnification, the rights of the Shareholders seeking indemnification

                                       32
<PAGE>

with respect to such indemnification claim shall be determined by binding
arbitration pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 11.2.

     8.4  Limitations on Indemnification.

     Notwithstanding the foregoing, no indemnification shall be payable pursuant
to this Article VIII unless and until the amount of all claims for
        ------------
indemnification pursuant to this Article exceeds Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000)
                                 -------
in the aggregate, whereupon indemnification pursuant to such Section shall be
payable for all losses, including the first Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000), in
accordance with the terms hereof; provided, however, that the total liability
for indemnification pursuant to this Article VIII shall not exceed, in the
                                     ------------
aggregate, the aggregate amount of the Consideration paid to the Shareholders
pursuant to this Agreement, net of any taxes paid or payable by the Shareholders
with respect thereto.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in the
Escrow Agreement, none of the provisions of this Agreement or any other
Transactional Agreements shall in any manner limit the liability of CAIS or the
Company or any Person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of
CAIS or the Company, with respect to (i) fraud, (ii) intentional
misrepresentation or (iii) criminal matters.

     8.5  Remedies.

     The rights and remedies of BAC and the Shareholders to indemnification
under this Article VIII, shall (except with respect to Liabilities for (i)
           ------------

and exclusive rights and remedies that BAC and the Shareholders have against
CAIS or the Company for Liabilities, obligations, losses, claims, damages,
costs, charges or other expenses arising out of or resulting from any of the
warranties, representations or covenants of CAIS or the Company contained in
this Agreement being incorrect, untrue or breached.


                                  ARTICLE IX.

                                 NONCOMPETITION

     9.1  Noncompetition Agreements.

     During the period commencing with the Closing Date and ending on the later
of (a) the third anniversary of the Closing Date and (b) six months after the
termination or expiration of the Employment Agreement to which Kim Kao is a
party, Kim Kao shall not engage in any Competitive Activity in the Territory.
During the period commencing with the Closing Date and ending on the later of
(a) the third anniversary of the Closing Date and (b) six months after the
termination or expiration of the Consulting Agreement to which Amy Hsiao is a
party, Amy Hsiao shall not engage in any Competitive Activity in the Territory.
"Competitive Activity" shall mean directly or indirectly (or having any interest
 --------------------
in, or performing any services for, any Person directly or indirectly) (a)
engaging in any activity that is the same as, similar to, or competitive with
any activity now engaged in by BAC, (b) employing, soliciting for employment,
or, except for general letters of recommendation, general employment
advertising, or upon inquiry by a potential new employer, recommending for
employment any Person

                                       33
<PAGE>

employed by BAC or by any Affiliate of BAC during such Person's employment with
BAC (or any Affiliate) or for one year thereafter, or (c) diverting or
attempting to divert from BAC or any Affiliate any business of any kind in which
BAC is now engaged, including, without limitation, the solicitation of or
interference with any suppliers, contractors, or customers. "Territory" shall
                                                             ---------
mean every state, territory, country, or jurisdiction in which BAC or any
Affiliate has carried on business prior to the Closing Date. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, the provisions of this Section 9.1 shall not
                                  -----------
prevent the Shareholders from owning, in the aggregate, up to five percent (5%)
of the total shares of all classes of stock outstanding of any corporation
having securities listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock
Exchange, or traded on Nasdaq.

     9.2  Noncompetition Covenants; Scope and Choice of Law.

     It is the understanding of the parties that the scope of the covenants
contained in this Article IX, both as to time and area covered, are necessary to
protect the rights of CAIS and the goodwill that is a part of the business
represented by the assets of BAC to be acquired by CAIS.  It is the parties'
intention that these covenants be enforced to the greatest extent (but to no
greater extent) in time, area, and degree of participation as is permitted by
the law of that jurisdiction whose law is found to be applicable to any acts in
breach of these covenants.  It being the purpose of this Agreement to govern
competition by the Shareholders in the Territory, these covenants shall be
governed by and construed according to that law (from among those jurisdictions
arguably applicable to this Agreement and those in which a breach of this
Agreement is alleged to have occurred or to be threatened) which best gives them
effect.

     9.3  Noncompetition Covenants; Assignment by CAIS.

     The parties agree that the covenants of the Shareholders not to compete
contained in this Article IX may be assigned by CAIS to any Person to whom may
                  ----------
be transferred the business of BAC by the sale or transfer of its business and
assets or otherwise.  It is the parties' intention that these covenants of the
Shareholders shall inure to the benefit of any Person that may succeed to the
business and assets of BAC (acquired by CAIS under this Agreement) with the same
force and effect as if these covenants were made directly with such successor.

     9.4  Noncompetition Covenants; Remedy for Breach.

     The parties agree that, in the event of breach or threatened breach of the
Shareholders' covenants in this Article IX, the damage or imminent damage to the
                                ----------
value and the goodwill of CAIS will be irreparable and extremely difficult to
estimate, making any remedy at law or in damages inadequate. Accordingly, the
parties agree that CAIS shall be entitled to injunctive relief against the
Shareholders in the event of any breach or threatened breach of any of such
covenants by the Shareholders, in addition to any other relief (including
damages) available to CAIS under this Agreement or under law.

                                  ARTICLE X.

                   NONDISCLOSURE OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

     10.1  Nondisclosure

                                       34
<PAGE>

     The Shareholders and BAC recognize and acknowledge that they have had in
the past, currently have, and in the future may possibly have, access to certain
Confidential Information of CAIS that is valuable, special and unique assets of
CAIS's business.  The Shareholders and BAC agree that they will not disclose
such Confidential Information to any Person for any purpose or reason
whatsoever, except (a) to authorized representatives of CAIS, and (b) to counsel
and other advisers to the Shareholders and BAC, provided that such advisers
agree to the confidentiality provisions of this Section 10.1, unless (i) such
                                                ------------
information becomes available to or known by the public generally through no
fault of the Shareholders or BAC, (ii) disclosure is required by law or the
order of any governmental body under color of law, provided, that prior to
disclosing any information pursuant to this clause (ii), the Shareholders or BAC
shall give prior written notice thereof to CAIS and provide CAIS with the
opportunity to contest such disclosure, or (iii) the disclosing party reasonably
believes that such disclosure is required in connection with the defense of a
lawsuit against the disclosing party.  Nothing herein shall be construed as
prohibiting CAIS from pursuing any other available remedy for such breach or
threatened breach, including the recovery of damages.

     10.2  Nondisclosure Covenants; Remedy for Breach.

     The parties agree that, in the event of breach or threatened breach of the
Shareholders' and BAC's covenants in this Article X, the damage or imminent
                                          ---------
damage to the value and the goodwill of CAIS will be irreparable and extremely
difficult to estimate, making any remedy at law or in damages inadequate.
Accordingly, the parties agree that CAIS shall be entitled to injunctive relief
against the Shareholders and BAC in the event of any breach or threatened breach
of any of such covenants by the Shareholders or BAC, in addition to any other
relief (including damages) available to CAIS under this Agreement or under law.

                                  ARTICLE XI.

                            MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

     11.1  Tax Matters.

     (a) The Shareholders shall be responsible for sales, use and transfer
taxes, including, but not limited to, any value added, stock transfer, gross
receipts, stamp duty and real, personal or intangible property transfer taxes,
due by reason of the consummation of the transactions hereunder, including, but
not limited to, any interest or penalties in respect thereof incurred in
connection with the Merger. At their sole cost and expense, the Shareholders
shall prepare and timely file and pay amounts owed with respect to BAC Returns
not already filed for all Tax periods ending on or before the Closing Date and
the Shareholders shall pay any and all Taxes due thereon that are not reserved
for on the June 1999 Financial Statements. All such BAC Returns shall be
prepared in a manner consistent with previously filed BAC Returns. The
Shareholders shall send a copy of all such BAC Returns to CAIS for review and
comment and, if required, appropriate execution, at least fifteen days prior to
the filing thereof. CAIS and BAC shall cooperate with the Shareholders as
necessary with respect to the preparation and filing of the BAC Returns in
accordance with this Section 11.1(a).

                                       35
<PAGE>

     (b) CAIS shall prepare, and shall have ultimate discretion with respect to,
(i) all Tax Returns of BAC for any taxable period that begins after the Closing
Date (and the payment of all Taxes reported on any such Tax Return), and (ii)
the preparation and filing of any Tax Return for any Straddle Period (the
"Straddle Tax Returns"), if any; provided, however, that in the case of any
                                 --------
Straddle Tax Return, the preparation and filing of such Return shall be subject
to review and approval of the Shareholders (which approval shall not be
unreasonably withheld). Notwithstanding the foregoing but subject to Section
11.1(c) and (d), CAIS and BAC shall not, without the prior written consent of
the Shareholders, be entitled to settle either administratively or after the
commencement of litigation any claim for Taxes which would adversely affect the
liability for Taxes of the Shareholders or BAC for any periods ending prior to
the Closing Date or their portion of any Straddle Period that result from the
reduction of asset basis or cost adjustments, the lengthening of any
amortization or depreciation periods, the denial of amortization or depreciation
deductions, or the reduction of loss or credit carryforwards. Such consent shall
not be unreasonably withheld.

     (c) CAIS and the Shareholders shall each have the right to represent BAC
in connection with any litigation or claim regarding a Straddle Tax Return and
each shall have discretion with respect to any Tax audit (including the
execution of any waiver of limitation with respect to any Tax audit) relating to
any Tax Return required to be prepared by such party hereunder.

     (d) The Shareholders and CAIS shall provide the other party with such
assistance, information and records and access to BAC's officers, directors,
employees and agents as may be reasonably requested by the other party in
connection with the preparation of any Tax Return or any audit or other
proceeding relating to the Taxes of BAC or the Shareholders.

     11.2  Arbitration.

     Any dispute or disagreement arising hereunder shall, at the demand of any
party to this Agreement, be referred to and decided by binding arbitration.
Such arbitration shall be held in Orange County, California and it shall be
conducted under the then current commercial arbitration rules of the American
Arbitration Association ("AAA").  Three arbitrators shall be chosen from an AAA
panel in accordance with AAA rules and procedures.  The arbitrators in such
arbitration shall have the power to grant injunctive relief, in accordance with
the terms of this Agreement.  The award rendered through arbitration shall be
final and binding upon the parties and judgment thereon may be entered in any
court of competent jurisdiction for execution.

     11.3  Finders and Brokers.

     Except as set forth in Schedule 11.3, each party hereby represents and
                            -------------
warrants to the others that neither it nor its representatives have taken, nor
will they take, any action that would cause the other parties hereto to have any
obligation or liability to any Person for or made any arrangements for the
payment of any finders' fees, brokerage fees, investment banking fees,
consulting fees, agents' commissions, or like payments in connection with the
transactions contemplated hereby.  Each party shall indemnify and hold harmless
the others from any claim that is asserted by any Person for such fees,
commissions or like payments with respect to this

                                       36
<PAGE>

Agreement arising from any act, representation or promise of the indemnifying
party or its representative.

     11.4  Amendment.

     Subject to applicable law, this Agreement may only be amended or
supplemented by written agreement of the Shareholders, BAC, the Company and
CAIS.

     11.5  Waiver of Compliance

     Any failure of BAC or the Shareholders, on the one hand, or CAIS or the
Company, on the other, to comply with any provision of this Agreement may be
expressly waived in writing by CAIS or the Shareholders, respectively, but such
waiver or failure to insist upon strict compliance with such provision shall not
operate as a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to, any subsequent or other
failure.  No failure to exercise and no delay in exercising any right, remedy,
or power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or
partial exercise of any right, remedy, or power hereunder preclude any other or
further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, or power
provided herein or by law or in equity.  The waiver by any party of the time for
performance of any act or condition hereunder does not constitute a waiver of
the act or condition itself.

     11.6  Expenses; Attorneys' Fee.

     Each party shall pay all expenses incurred by it or on its behalf in
connection with this Agreement or any transaction contemplated hereby, except as
expressly provided in Section 1.6.  Any transfer or similar tax in connection
                      -----------
with the sale of the BAC Stock to CAIS shall be paid by the Shareholders.

     11.7  Survival of Representations and Warranties.

     The respective representations and warranties of each party contained
herein shall not be deemed waived or otherwise affected by any investigation
made by or on behalf of the other party and such representations and warranties
shall survive the Closing and the consummation of the Merger contemplated hereby
for the periods specified herein.  All statements contained in this Agreement or
in any schedule, exhibit or certificate delivered pursuant hereto shall be
deemed representations or warranties, as the case may be (as such terms are used
in this Agreement), of the party making such statements.

     11.8  Notices.

     All notices, demands, and other communications required or permitted
hereunder shall be made in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given
if delivered by hand, against receipt, or mailed, postage prepaid, certified or
registered mail, return receipt requested, or sent by a recognized air courier
service, and addressed as follows:
