                 3.1      Organization and Qualification.  Each of the Company
and its subsidiaries is a corporation duly organized and existing in good
standing under the laws of the jurisdiction in which it is incorporated and has
the power to own its respective property and to carry on its respective
business as now being conducted.  Each of the Company and its subsidiaries is
duly qualified as a foreign corporation to do business and in good standing in
every jurisdiction in which the nature of the respective business conducted or
property owned by it makes such qualification necessary and where the failure
so to qualify would have a material adverse effect on the business or financial
position of the Company and its subsidiaries taken as a whole.

                 3.2      Due Authorization.  The execution and delivery of
this Agreement (i) are within the corporate power and authority of the Company;
(ii) do not require the approval or consent of any stockholders of the Company;
and (iii) have been authorized by all requisite corporate proceedings on the
part of the Company.  This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by
the Company and constitutes a valid and binding agreement of the Company
enforceable in accordance with its respective terms, except that (i) such
enforcement may be subject to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization,
moratorium, or other similar laws now or hereafter in effect relating to
creditors' rights, and (ii) the remedy of specific performance and injunctive
and other forms of equitable relief may be subject to equitable defenses and to
the discretion of the court before which any proceeding therefor may be
brought.

                 3.3      SEC Reports.  (a)  The Company has filed in a timely
manner with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") all proxy
statements, reports, and other documents required to be filed by it under the
Exchange Act, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year
ended December 31, 1994 (collectively, the "SEC Reports").  Each SEC Report was
in substantial compliance with the requirements of its respective report form
and did not on the date of filing contain any untrue statement of a material
fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or
necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances
under which there were made, not misleading.

                          (b)  The financial statements (including any related
schedules and/or notes) included in the SEC Reports have been prepared in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistently followed
(except as indicated in the notes thereto) throughout the periods involved and
fairly present the consolidated financial condition, results of operations and
changes in stockholders' equity of the Company and its subsidiaries as of the
dates thereof and for the periods ended on such dates (in each case subject, as
to interim statements, to changes resulting from normal year-end audit
adjustments (none of which will be material in amount or effect)), and the
Company has no material liabilities, contingent or otherwise, not reflected in
the balance sheet as of December 31, 1994 included in the SEC Reports or
otherwise referred to in

operations (financial or otherwise) of the Company and its subsidiaries taken
as a whole from that set forth in the SEC Reports, other than changes disclosed
or referred to in the SEC Reports or otherwise disclosed to the Purchaser in
writing prior to the execution by the Purchaser of this Agreement.

                 3.4      Actions Pending; Compliance with Law.  There is no
action, suit, investigation, proceeding claim or penalty pending or, to the
knowledge of the Company, threatened by any public official or governmental
authority or agency, against the Company or any of its properties or assets by
or before any court, arbitrator or governmental body, department, commission,
board, bureau, agency or instrumentality, which questions the validity of this
Agreement, or the Shares or any action taken or to be taken pursuant hereto or
thereto, or, except as set forth in the SEC Reports, which are reasonably
likely to result in any material adverse change in the business, prospects or
financial condition of the Company.

hereto, neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement, and the issuance
of the Shares nor fulfillment of or compliance with the terms and provisions
hereof, will conflict with or result in a breach of the terms, conditions or
provisions of, or give rise to a right of termination under, or constitute a
default under, or result in any violation of, the Certificate of Incorporation
or Bylaws of the Company or any mortgage, agreement, security, instrument,
order, judgment, decree, statute, law, rule or regulations to which the Company
or any of its subsidiaries or any of their respective property is subject.
Neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries is in default under any
outstanding indenture or other debt instrument or with respect to the payment
of the principal of or interest on any outstanding obligations for borrowed
money, is in default under any of their respective contracts or agreements, or
under any instrument by which the Company or any of its subsidiaries is bound,
in each case which materially and adversely affects the business, operations or
condition (financial or otherwise) of the Company and its subsidiaries taken as
a whole.

                 3.6      Capitalization.  The authorized capital stock of the
Company consists of (a) 50,000,000 shares of Common Stock, of which, as of the

transactions contemplated hereby contains any untrue statement of a material
fact or omits to state a material fact necessary in order to make the
statements contained herein and therein not misleading.  There is no fact
peculiar to the Company or any of its subsidiaries which the Company has not
disclosed to Purchaser in writing which materially affects adversely or, so far
