          -------------
the termination of this Agreement pursuant to its terms, Seller shall not, and
Seller shall not authorize any of its officers, directors, employees or other
representatives to, directly or indirectly, (i) initiate, solicit or encourage

Seller, the Business or the Purchased Assets (whether by way of merger, purchase
of capital shares, purchase of assets or otherwise) (a "Transaction Proposal"),
                                                        --------------------

agreement, with any Person concerning a Transaction Proposal or (iii) execute
and deliver any written letter of intent or similar document with any third

requested (other than by Buyer) in connection with a potential Transaction
Proposal and (y) immediately communicate to Buyer the terms and conditions of
any such Transaction Proposal or potential Transaction Proposal or inquiry and
the identity of the offeror or potential offeror.

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.  Such information
shall include, without limitation, all agreements between Seller and any Person
relating to the Business. Seller shall maintain and make available the

by Buyer, it will cooperate with Buyer, at Buyer's expense, in enforcing the

protection of intellectual property rights.  In the event that

                                       26
<PAGE>

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.

     6.10  No Post-Closing Retention of Copies.  Immediately after the Closing,

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
required by law to be kept by Seller for the sole purpose of preparing its
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, Buyer may issue a press release in the form reasonably
acceptable to the Seller and Buyer.. On and prior to the Closing Date, Buyer and
Seller shall advise and confer with each other prior to the issuance of any
reports, statements or releases concerning this Agreement (including the
exhibits and schedules hereto) and the transactions contemplated herein.
Neither Buyer nor Seller will make any public disclosure prior to the Closing or
with respect to the Closing 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.  Immediately after this Agreement is signed, both parties
will make public announcements to their respective share exchanges; the text of
such public announcements will be reviewed by the parties prior to release.

involved or concerned, financially or otherwise, as a member, shareholder,
unitholder, 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");

covenants and restraints.

          (c)  If any prohibition or restriction contained in clause (a) of this

          (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 6.14, that Buyer will be without an adequate legal
remedy if Seller violated the provisions of this Section 6.14, and that any such
violation may cause substantial irreparable injury and damage to Buyer not fully

              -------------------
provisions of this Section 7, Buyer may offer employment to any or all of the

defined in Section 8.14 hereof) or other 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
                                                                 -----------

Buyer or any other Indemnified Person pursuant to this Section 10 shall be made
in accordance with the provisions of this section.

          (a) Whenever any claim shall arise for indemnification hereunder, the
Buyer party or parties entitled to indemnification (the "indemnified party")
                                                         -----------------
shall promptly notify Seller or parties obligated to provide indemnification
(the "indemnifying party") of the claim and, when known, the facts constituting
      ------------------
the basis for such claim; provided, however, that the failure to so notify the
                          --------  -------
indemnifying party shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligation
hereunder to the extent such failure does not materially prejudice the
indemnifying party.  In the event of any claim for indemnification hereunder
resulting from, arising out of, or in connection with any claim or legal
proceedings by a third party, the notice to the indemnifying party shall
specify, if known, the amount or an estimate of the amount of the liability
arising therefrom.

          (b) In connection with any claim giving rise to indemnity hereunder
resulting from or arising out of any claim or legal proceeding by a person who
is not a party to this Agreement, the indemnifying party at its sole cost and
expense and with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party may,
upon written notice to the indemnified party, assume the defense of any such
claim or legal proceeding if:

              (i)   the indemnifying party acknowledges to the indemnified party
in writing, within fifteen (15) calendar days after receipt of notice from the
indemnified party, its obligations to indemnify the indemnified party with
respect to all elements of such claim;

              (ii)  the indemnifying party provides the indemnified party with
evidence reasonably acceptable to the indemnified party that the indemnifying
party will have the financial resources to defend against such third-party claim
and fulfill its indemnification obligations hereunder;

              (ii)  the third-party claim involves only money damages and does
not seek an injunction or other equitable relief; and

              (iii) settlement or an adverse judgment of the third-party claim
is not, in the good faith judgment of the indemnified party, likely to establish
a pattern or practice adverse to the continuing business interests of the
indemnified party.

     The indemnified party shall be entitled to participate in (but not control)
the defense of any such action, with its counsel and at its own expense;

provided, however, that if there are one or more legal defenses available to the
--------  -------
indemnified party that conflict with those available to the indemnifying party,
or if the indemnifying party fails to take reasonable steps necessary to defend
diligently the claim after receiving notice from the indemnified party that it
believes the indemnifying party has failed to do so, the indemnified party may
assume the defense of such claim; provided, further, that the indemnified party
                                  --------  -------
may not settle such claim without the prior written consent of the indemnifying
party, which consent may not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned.
If the indemnified party assumes the defense of the claim, the indemnifying
party shall reimburse the indemnified party on a monthly basis for the actual
fees and expenses of counsel retained by the indemnified party and the
indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate in (but not control) the
defense of such claim, with its counsel and at its own expense.  If the
indemnifying party thereafter seeks to question the manner in which the
indemnified party defended such third party claim or the amount or nature of any
such settlement, the indemnifying party shall have the burden to prove by a
preponderance of the evidence that the indemnified party did not defend or
settle such third party claim in a reasonably prudent manner. The parties agree
to render, without compensation, to each other such assistance as they may
reasonably require of each other in order to ensure the proper and adequate
defense of any action, suit or proceeding, whether or not subject to
indemnification hereunder.

                                       37
<PAGE>

          (c)  Any amount of money owed by an indemnifying party to an
indemnified party hereunder shall be paid with interest, at an annual rate equal
to the Prime Rate then in effect (or, if less, the maximum rate permitted by
law), from the date that the loss or damage was sustained or cash disbursement
made by the indemnified party until such amount is paid by the indemnifying
party.

          (d) All indemnification payments hereunder shall be effected by
payment of cash or delivery of a certified or official bank check in the amount
of the indemnification liability. Each indemnified party shall be obligated in
connection with any claim for indemnification under this Section 10 to use
commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate damages upon and after becoming
aware of any event which could reasonably be expected to give rise to such
damages. Subject to the rights of the existing insurers of an indemnified party,
an indemnifying party shall be subrogated to any right of action which the
indemnified party may have against any other Person with respect to any matter
given rise to a claim for indemnification from such indemnitor hereunder.
