     5.8  Title to Property and Assets.  Buyer owns its property and assets free
          ----------------------------
and clear of all mortgages, liens, loans and encumbrances, except such
encumbrances and liens which arise in the ordinary course of business and do not
materially impair Buyer's ownership or use of such property or assets.  With
respect to the property and assets it leases, Buyer is in compliance with such
leases and, to its knowledge, holds a valid leasehold interest free of any
liens, claims or encumbrances.

     5.9  Employee Benefit Plans.  Buyer has complied with all applicable local,

oral, express or implied, contract, commitment or arrangement with any labor
union, and no labor union has requested or, to the knowledge of Buyer, has
sought to represent any of the employees, representatives or agents of Buyer.
There is no strike or other labor dispute involving Buyer pending, or to the
knowledge of the Buyer threatened, which could have a Material Adverse Effect on
the business of Buyer (as such business is presently conducted and as it is
proposed to be conducted), nor is Buyer aware of any labor organization activity
involving its employees.  To its knowledge, Buyer has complied in all material
respects with all applicable state and federal equal employment opportunity laws
and with other laws related to employment.  To Buyer's knowledge, no employee of
Buyer, nor any consultant with whom Buyer has contracted, is in violation of any
term of any employment contract, proprietary information agreement or any other
agreement relating to the right of any such individual to be employed by, or to
contract with, Buyer because of the nature of the business to be conducted by
Buyer; and to Buyer's knowledge the continued employment by Buyer of its present
employees, and the performance of Buyer's contracts with its independent
contractors, will not result in any such violation.  Buyer has not received any
notice alleging that any such violation has occurred.

     5.13 Permits.  To its knowledge, Buyer is not in violation of any
          -------
applicable statute, rule, regulation, order or restriction of any domestic or
foreign government or any instrumentality or agency thereof in respect of the

materially and adversely affect the business, assets, liabilities, financial
condition, operations or prospects of Buyer.  Buyer has all franchises, permits,
licenses and any similar authority necessary for the conduct of its business as
now being conducted by it, the lack

                                      -22-
<PAGE>

of which could materially and adversely affect the business, properties,
prospects, or financial condition of Buyer and believes that it can obtain,

business as planned to be conducted. Buyer is not in default in any material
respect under any of such franchises, permits, licenses or other similar
authority.

     5.14 Environmental and Safety Laws.  To the best of its knowledge, Buyer is
          -----------------------------
not in violation of any applicable statute, law or regulation relating to the
environment or occupational health and safety, and to the best of its knowledge,

such existing statute, law or regulation.

     5.15 Litigation; Other Claims.  There are no claims, actions, suits,
          ------------------------
proceedings, or formal investigations against Buyer, or any of its officers,
directors or shareholders, relating to Buyer's business or Buyer's employees
which are currently pending or, to Buyer's knowledge, threatened, at law or in
equity or before or by any Governmental Entity, or which challenges or seeks to
prevent, enjoin, alter or materially delay any of the transactions contemplated
hereby, nor is Buyer aware of any basis for such claims, actions, suits,
inquiries, proceedings, or investigations; and no Governmental Entity has at any
time challenged or questioned the legal right of Buyer to offer or sell any of
its products or services.

     5.16 Full Disclosure.  Buyer has fully provided the Purchasers with all the
          ---------------
information which Seller has requested for deciding whether to enter into the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement and all information which Buyer
believes is reasonably necessary to enable Seller to make such a decision.
Neither this Agreement nor any other agreement, exhibit, schedule or officer's
certificate being entered into or delivered pursuant to this Agreement contains
any untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state any material fact
necessary in order to make the statements contained in such document not
misleading.  To the extent any business plans or financial or other projections
were disclosed to Seller, such information was prepared in good faith; however,
Buyer does not warrant that it will achieve such projections.

     5.17 Intellectual Property.  Buyer owns or possesses sufficient legal
          ---------------------
rights to all patents, trademarks, service marks, tradenames, copyrights, trade
secrets, licenses, information and proprietary rights and processes necessary
for its business as now conducted and as proposed to be conducted without any
conflict with, or infringement of, the rights of others.  There are no
outstanding options, licenses or agreements of any kind relating to the
foregoing, nor is Buyer bound by or a party to any options, licenses or
agreements of any kind with respect to the patents, trademarks, service marks,
trade names, copyrights, trade secrets, licenses, information and other
proprietary rights and processes of any other person or entity other than such
licenses or agreements arising from the purchase of "off the shelf" or standard
products. Buyer has not received any communications alleging that Buyer has
violated or, by conducting its business as proposed, would violate any of the
patents, trademarks, service marks, tradenames, copyrights, trade secrets or
other proprietary rights or processes of any other person or entity. Buyer is
not aware that any of its employees is obligated under any contract (including
licenses, covenants or commitments of any nature) or other agreement, or subject
to any judgment, decree or order of any court or administrative agency, that
would interfere with the use of such employee's best efforts to promote the
interest of Buyer or that would conflict with Buyer's business as proposed to be
conducted. The Company does not believe it is or will be necessary to use any
inventions of

                                      -23-
<PAGE>

any of its employees (or persons it currently intends to hire) made prior to

          -------------------------------------------------
from the date of this Agreement to the Closing Date, Seller will conduct the
Business in its ordinary and usual course, consistent with past practice, and
will use all reasonable efforts to preserve intact all rights, privileges,
franchises and other authority of the Business, to retain the employees, and

                                      -24-

          -------------

          (a) Until the earlier to occur of (i) the Closing or (ii) the
termination of this Agreement pursuant to its terms, Seller shall not, and
Seller shall not authorize any of its directors, officers, employees, agents or
advisors including, without limitation, attorneys, accountants, consultants,
bankers and financial advisors, to directly or indirectly, (x) initiate, solicit
or encourage submission of any inquiries, proposals or offers by any person,
entity or group (other than with Buyer and its affiliates, agents and

          ----------------------------------
order properly to operate the Business or prepare documents or reports required
to be filed with governmental authorities or Buyer's financial statements, it is
necessary that Buyer obtain additional information within Seller's possession
relating to the Purchased Assets or the Business, Seller will furnish or cause
its representatives to furnish such information to Buyer at Buyer's sole
expense.  Such information shall include, without limitation, all agreements
between Seller and any Person relating to the Business. Seller shall maintain

cooperate with Buyer, at Buyer's expense, in enforcing the terms of any
agreements between Seller and any third party involving the Business, including
without limitation terms relating to confidentiality and the protection of
intellectual property rights.  In the event that Buyer is unable to enforce its
intellectual property rights against a third party as a result of a rule or law
barring enforcement of such rights by a transferee of such rights, Seller agrees
to reasonably cooperate with Buyer by assigning to Buyer such rights as may be
required by Buyer to enforce its intellectual property rights in its own name.
If such assignment still does not permit Buyer to enforce its intellectual
property rights against the third party, Seller agrees to initiate proceedings
against such third party in Seller's name, provided that Buyer shall be entitled
to participate in such proceedings and provided further that Buyer shall be
responsible for the expenses of such proceedings and shall reimburse Seller for
such expenses as they are incurred by Seller.

          (b) Subsequent to the Closing Date, Seller shall, from time to time,
execute and deliver, upon the request of Buyer, all such other and further
materials and documents and instruments of conveyance, transfer or assignment as
may reasonably be requested by Buyer to effect, record or verify the transfer
to, and vesting in Buyer, of Seller's right, title and interest in and to the
Purchased Assets, free and clear of all Liens, except for Permitted Liens, in
accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

          (c) Seller will assist Buyer in obtaining any licenses, permits or
authorizations required for carrying on the Business but which are not
transferable.

     6.10 No Post-Closing Retention of Copies.  Immediately after the Closing,
          -----------------------------------
Seller shall deliver to Buyer or destroy copies of Purchased Assets in Seller's
possession that are in addition to copies delivered to Buyer as part of the
Closing, whether such copies are in paper form, on computer media or stored in
another form; provided, however, that Seller may retain and use copies of
              --------  --------
financial books and records relating to the Business as well as other documents

statutory accounts.  The Seller shall not be permitted to use the financial
books and records of the Business for any other reason.

     6.11 Public Announcements.  The parties hereby agree that upon execution of
          --------------------
this Agreement, Seller shall issue a press release substantially in the form
attached hereto as Exhibit A announcing the Asset Sale. Buyer and Seller shall

Agreement (including the exhibits and schedules hereto) and the transactions
contemplated herein. Neither Buyer nor Seller will make any public disclosure
with respect to the transactions contemplated herein unless both parties agree
on the text and timing of such public disclosure; provided, however, that
                                                  --------  -------
nothing contained herein shall prevent either party at any time from furnishing
any information to any Governmental Entity.

     6.12 Post-Closing Actions.  Subsequent to the Closing Date, Seller shall
          --------------------
use its best efforts to satisfy Seller's liabilities and the liabilities of the
Business not expressly assumed by Buyer pursuant to Section 2.3 hereof and to
obtain written releases from claims from such creditors.  On or before the three
(3) month anniversary of the Closing Date, Seller shall provide Buyer with
materials and documents substantiating the satisfaction of this Section 6.12.
Seller shall maintain and make available to Buyer the information and records
specified in this Section 6.12 for a period of two (2) years after the Closing
Date.

     6.13 Future Agreements.  In the event Seller enters into any agreement
          -----------------
between the date of this Agreement and the Closing that relates primarily to the
Business, at the request of Buyer, Seller agrees to include any such agreement

     6.19 Non-Competition Agreement.
          -------------------------

          (a) In consideration of the Buyer entering into this Agreement, Seller
(on its own behalf and not on behalf of its officers, directors or shareholders
in their individual capacities) undertakes that for one (1) year after the
Closing Date and within the counties, cities and states of the United States of
America and each political subdivision and/or nation throughout the world (the
"Territory") it will not:
 ---------

                                      -28-
<PAGE>

              (i)     participate, assist or otherwise be directly or indirectly
involved or concerned, financially or otherwise, as a member, shareholder, unit
holder, director, consultant, adviser, contractor, principal, agent, manager,
beneficiary, partner, associate, trustee, financier or otherwise in any business
or activity which is the same as or substantially similar to the Business or any
material part of it (a "Restricted Business");
                        -------------------

              (ii)    solicit, canvass, induce or encourage directly or
indirectly any employee of Buyer to leave the employment of Buyer;

              (iii)   solicit, canvass, approach or accept any offer from any
person or entity who was at any time during the 24 months immediately preceding
the Closing Date a customer or supplier of the Business with a view to
establishing a relationship with or obtaining the patronage of that person or
entity in a Restricted Business;

              (iv)    interfere or seek to interfere, directly or indirectly,
with any relationship between Buyer and any client, customer, employee or
supplier of the Business.

          (b) If any of the separate and independent covenants and restraints
referred to in clause (a) of this Section 6.19 are or become invalid or
unenforceable for any reason then that invalidity or unenforceability will not
affect the validity or enforceability of any other separate and independent
covenants and restraints.

          (c) If any prohibition or restriction contained in clause (a) of this
Section 6.19 is judged to go beyond what is reasonable in the circumstances, but
would be judged reasonable if that activity was deleted or that period or area
was reduced, then the prohibitions or restrictions apply with that activity
deleted or period or area reduced by the minimum amount necessary.

          (d) Seller acknowledges that:

              (i)     the prohibitions and restrictions contained in clause (a)
of this Section 6.19 are reasonable and necessary; and

              (ii)    Seller has received valuable consideration for agreeing to
the covenants in clause (a) of this Section 6.19.

          (e) Seller and Buyer acknowledge and agree that it will be difficult
to compute the amount of damage or loss to Buyer if Seller violated any of their
agreements under this Section 6.19, that Buyer will be without an adequate legal
remedy if Seller violated the provisions of this Section 6.19, and that any such
violation may cause substantial irreparable injury and damage to Buyer not fully
compensable by monetary damages.  Therefore, Seller and Buyer agree that in the

7.   Employee Matters.
     ----------------

     7.1  Transferred Employees.
          ---------------------

          (a) Offer of Employment.  Subject to and in accordance with the
              -------------------
provisions of this Section 7, Buyer may offer employment to any or all of the
employees who are employed by Seller in the Business as of the date of this
Agreement (the "Employees").  Seller agrees that it will cooperate with Buyer to
                ---------
identify those employees of Seller who are necessary for the conduct the
Business.  Prior to the Closing, Buyer, after notice to Seller as to the timing
and method of contact, shall have the right to contact any or all of the
Employees for the purposes of making offers of employment with Buyer (or any
Affiliate designated by Buyer) after the Closing Date and receiving written
acceptances of such employment (in each case contingent on consummation of the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement).  Upon Closing, Buyer (or any
Affiliates designated by Buyer) shall hire those Employees to whom it has made
an offer in accordance with this Section 7.1 and who accept such offer in the
manner and within the time frame reasonably established by Buyer.  Each such
Employee who is employed by Seller on the Closing Date and who actually
transfers to employment with Buyer (or any Affiliate designated by Buyer) at or
after the Closing Date as a result of an offer of employment made by Buyer is
hereafter referred to as a "Transferred Employee."  Transferred Employees shall
                            --------------------
not include any person on a disability leave of more than twenty-six (26) weeks.
Buyer shall not be obligated to hire any employee unless an offer of employment
is subsequently made to, and accepted by, such employee; in addition, Buyer
shall have no obligation to hire any employees of Seller after the Closing Date.

          (b) Transition.  The employment by Seller of the Transferred Employees
              ----------
shall end at the close of business on the Closing Date and the employment of the
Transferred Employees by Buyer shall commence at 12:01 a.m. on the day after the
Closing Date.  The terms of employment with Buyer (or Buyer's Affiliates) shall
be as mutually agreed to between each Transferred Employee and Buyer (or Buyer's
Affiliate, as the case may be), subject to the provisions of this Section 7.1.
Between the date of this Agreement and the Closing Date, Seller will provide
each Transferred Employee with the same level of compensation as that currently
provided by Seller.  Buyer shall have no obligation with respect to payments of
salary,

                                      -30-
<PAGE>

compensation, wages, health or similar benefits, commissions, bonuses (deferred
or otherwise), severance, stock or stock options or any other sums due to any
Transferred Employee that accrued before the Closing Date. Seller will be fully
responsible for all amounts payable to any employee, including (without
limitation) all termination payments, redundancy compensation, severance pay,
accrued vacation pay and other amounts payable in respect of the termination of
employment of any employee in connection with the sale of the Purchased Assets
to the Buyer. In addition, Seller will be fully responsible for all amounts
owing to Transferred Employees prior to Closing.

          (c) Retention of Employees Prior to Closing.  Seller agrees to use
              ---------------------------------------
reasonable efforts to retain the Employees as employees of the Business until
the Closing Date, and to assist Buyer in securing the employment after the
Closing Date of those Employees to whom Buyer (or designated by Buyer) makes or
intends to make offers of employment under subsection (a) above.  Seller shall
not transfer any Employee to employment with Seller outside of the Business
prior to the Closing or without the consent of Buyer.  Seller shall notify Buyer
promptly if, notwithstanding the foregoing, any Employee terminates employment
with Seller after the date of this Agreement but prior to the Closing.  Buyer
may request Seller to hire additional employees for the Business, in which case
Seller will use commercially reasonable efforts to identify and hire such
employees.

     7.2  Compensation and Benefits of Transferred Employees.  Buyer shall be
          --------------------------------------------------
free to establish its own employee benefit plans; Buyer shall have no obligation
to offer benefit plans of the same type or with terms similar to or better than
the terms of Seller's current employee benefit plans.  Buyer may, at its option,
give each Transferred Employee credit for such Transferred Employee's years of
most recent continuous service with Seller for purposes of determining
participation and benefit levels under all of Buyer's vacation policies and
benefit plans and programs.

     7.3  Reserved.
          --------

     7.4  No Right to Continued Employment or Benefits.  No provision in this
          --------------------------------------------
Agreement shall create any third party beneficiary or other right in any Person
(including any beneficiary or dependent thereof) for any reason, including,
without limitation, in respect of continued, resumed or new employment with
Seller or Buyer (or any Affiliate of Seller or Buyer) or in respect of any
benefits that may be provided, directly or indirectly, under any plan or
arrangement maintained by Seller, Buyer or any Affiliate of Seller or Buyer.
Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, Buyer is under no
obligation to hire any employee of Seller, provide any employee with any
particular benefits, or make any payments or provide any benefits to those
employees of Seller whom Buyer chooses not to employ.

     7.5  No Solicitation or Hire by Seller.  For a period of one year after the
          ---------------------------------
Closing, Seller will not solicit any Transferred Employee for employment.  For
purposes of this Section 7.5, the term "solicit" shall not include the following
activities by Seller:  (i) advertising for employment in any bulletin board
(including electronic bulletin boards), newspaper, trade journal or other
publication available for general distribution to the public without specific
reference to any particular employees; (ii) participation in any hiring fair or
similar event open to

                                      -31-
