                    N + 1

        Where:

        E = theoretical value of the rights entitlement attached to each share
        (quoted cum rights).

        P = the weighted average market price of fully paid ordinary shares of
        the Company sold in the ordinary course of trading on the Australian
        Stock Exchange Limited during the five trading days after the
        announcement of the rights issue

        S = subscription price (application money plus calls) for new shares

        D = any dividends due but not yet paid on existing shares which will not
        be payable in respect of new shares issued under the rights issue

        N = number of cum rights shares required to be held to receive a right
        to one new share

        No change will be made to the number of shares to which the Option
        holder is entitled.

7.2     If the Company makes a bonus issue of shares or other securities
        convertible into ordinary shares pro rata to holders of ordinary shares
        (other than an issue in lieu of dividends or by way of dividend
        reinvestment pursuant to any shareholder election), the number of shares
        issued on exercise of each Option will include the number of bonus
        shares that would have been issued if the Option had been exercised
        prior to the books closing date for bonus shares. No change will be made
        to the exercise price.

8.      RECONSTRUCTION

        In the event of a reconstruction (including consolidation, sub-division,
        reduction or return) of the issued capital of the Company, the number of
        Options or the exercise price of Options or both shall be reconstructed
        (as appropriate) in a manner which would not result in any benefits
        being conferred on the Option holders which are not conferred on
        shareholders (subject to the provisions with respect to rounding of
        entitlements as sanctioned by the meeting of shareholders approving the



                                       20
<PAGE>   21

        reconstruction of capital) but in all respects the terms for the
        exercise of Options shall remain unchanged.

9)      RANKING OF SHARES ALLOTTED ON EXERCISE OF OPTIONS

        All share allotted pursuant to the exercise of Options will, subject to
        the Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Company, rank in all
        respects (including rights relating to dividends) pari passu with the
        existing ordinary shares of the Company on issue at date of allotment.

10.     METHOD OF EXERCISE OF OPTIONS

10.1    Options may be exercised by written notice to the Secretary of the
        Company. The exercise notice must specify the number of shares required
        to be allotted, which number must be a multiple of 1,000 if only part of
        the Options are exercised, or if the total number of Options held is
        less than 1,000, then the total of all Options held must be exercised.
        Options will be deemed to have been exercised on the date that the
        application is lodged with the Secretary of the Company.

10.2    The Option holder must pay the exercise price in full to the Company on
        the date of the exercise of the Options.

10.3    The exercise of less than all of the Option holder's Options will not
        prevent the Option holder from exercising an Option in respect of the
        whole or any part of the balance of the entitlement under his remaining
        Options.

10.4    On exercise of the Options the Option holder must surrender his Option
        certificate to the Company in respect of those Options being exercised.

10.5    If the Option holder exercises less than the total number of Options
        then registered in his name:

        a)      The Option holder must surrender his Option certificate to the
                Company, and

        b)      the Company must cancel that Option certificate and issue to the
                holder a new Option certificate in respect of the Option
                holder's unexercised Options.

10.6    Within 10 days of receipt of the application for the exercise of Options
        and payment by the Option holder of the exercise price of such Options,
        the Company must issue and allot to the Option holder the number of
        fully paid ordinary shares in the capital of the Company specified in
        the application.

10.7    If the Company is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange then it will
        as soon as practicable after issue make application for the shares
        issued upon exercise of Options by the Option holder to be granted
        official quotation on the Australian Stock Exchange. The Options are not
        to be listed on the ASX.

11.     COMPULSORY ACQUISITION

        If an entity ("Offeror") serves a notice on the option holder in
        accordance with section 703(4) of the Corporations Law, all options,
        which have not yet vested, become



                                       21
<PAGE>   22

        vested on the date that notice is served on the option holder,
        irrespective of any unfulfilled conditions of vesting.

        All options (including all existing options and all options that have
        been vested by virtue of the preceding paragraph) will lapse on the date
        3 months after delivery of that notice.

        Unless waived by written notice from the Company, the option holder must
        accept an offer to acquire all options which remain unexercised which is
        delivered in accordance with section 703(4) of the Corporations Law.
        This obligation is conditional on the terms offered by the Offeror being
        no less favourable than the offer price paid or payable by the Offeror
        in connection with the acquisition of ordinary shares in the Company
        under the Offeror's take-over scheme or take-over announcement, adjusted
        to reflect the offer for options rather than ordinary shares or on terms
        determined by a Court as contemplated by section 703(8) of the
        Corporations Law.

12.     OPTION EXPIRY DATE

        Subject to clause 11, the Option Expiry Date is the option expiry date
        referred to in Column 3 of Schedule A.

13.     TAXATION

        The Option holder is exclusively and solely responsible for all and any
        tax that may be payable as a result of the issue and or exercise of the
        Options and or the sale of shares resulting from the exercise of the
        Options. The issuer makes no warranty or representation in respect of
        any taxation that may be applicable to the issue and or exercise of the
        Options and or the sale of shares resulting from the exercise of the
        Options.

14.     UNEXERCISED OPTIONS

(a)     This clause 14 applies to all Unexercised Options. If there is any
        inconsistency between this clause and the other provisions of these
        Terms and Conditions in respect of the exercise of Unexercised Options,
        this clause prevails to the extent of this inconsistency.

(b)     If, at the time an Unexercised Option is exercised:

        i)      the Company is not listed on ASX; and

        ii)     the Company is a subsidiary of another company (the "Parent
                Company") and

        iii)    the Parent Company is listed on ASX or any Approved Exchange

        the Company may, instead of issuing shares in the capital of the
        Company, elect to have the Parent Company issue one fully paid share of
        common stock in the Parent Company for each Unexercised Option held.

(c)     If the Company makes the election referred to in paragraph (b):

        i)      in lieu of the Option holder's entitlement under clause 1 to
                subscribe for one fully paid ordinary share in the capital of
                the Company for each Option held, the Option holder will be
                issued one fully paid share of



                                       22
<PAGE>   23

                common stock of the Parent Company for each Unexercised Option
                held;

        ii)     in lieu of paying the exercise price to the Company in
                accordance with Clause 10.2, the Option holder must pay the full
                exercise price (which would have otherwise been payable to the
                Company) to the Parent Company on the date of exercise of the
                Unexercised Options and the Company is authorised to pay over
                any such moneys received by it to the Parent Company without
                further act or authority of the Option holder; and

        iii)    within 10 days of receipt of the application for the exercise of
                the Unexercised Options and payment by the Option holder of the
                exercise price of such Options, the Parent Company must issue to
                the Option holder the number of fully paid shares of common
                stock of the Parent Company specified in the application; and

        iv)     to avoid doubt, the Option holder has no entitlement to be
                issued or allotted any shares in the capital of the Company upon
                exercise of the Unexercised Options.

(d)     In this Clause 14:

        "Unexercised Options" means all Options that have been granted but are
        unexercised

15.     CHANGE OF CONTROL

If any one entity or person, acting alone or in association with others,

a)      lodges with the Company, or any parent of the Company, a substantial
        shareholders notice indicating an interest or

b)      in any way obtains an interest in

more than 30% of the issued capital of the Company, or any parent of the
Company, then all options, which have not yet vested, become immediately vested,
irrespective of any unfulfilled conditions of vesting.
