                           3.2.2 Cash Payment Post-Closing. As additional
consideration for the Assets, Buyer will pay to Seller in immediately available
funds, payments equal to the additional federal and state income taxes actually
paid by Ellsworth (the "Additional Taxes") as a result of (i) Seller's
collection during 2002 and 2003 of the Retained Receivables (after all expenses
of collection) being treated as ordinary income rather than capital gains and
(ii) Seller's actual receipt of the payments to be made pursuant to this Section
3.2.2, up to a maximum aggregate of such payments to Seller of $1,500,000 (the
"Maximum"). On or before April 15 of 2003 and 2004, Seller and Ellsworth shall
provide to Buyer a report (the "Report") detailing (i) Seller's net collections
(after all expenses of collection) of the Retained Receivables during the prior
calendar year and (ii) their calculation of the Additional Taxes, which Report
shall include a true and correct copy of the Seller's and Ellsworth's tax
returns for the year just completed (the "Tax Returns"). Buyer shall have until
the later of (i) forty-five(45) days after its receipt of the Report and (ii)
May 30 of such year (the "Review Period") to dispute the Report by notifying
Seller in writing thereof. The Seller and Ellsworth (collectively, the
"Ellsworth Group") shall give Buyer and its representatives full access during
the Review Period, during normal business hours and upon notice to Seller that
Buyer wishes to review such records, to all books and records, work papers,
schedules and calculations relating to the Retained Receivables, the expenses of
collection, the Tax Returns and the Additional Taxes. If Buyer does not dispute
the Report within said Review Period, then Buyer shall be deemed to agree to the
payment amount set forth in the Report and shall make the required payment
within five days after the end of the Review Period; if Buyer does dispute the
Report before the end of the Review Period, then the required payment shall be
delayed until the dispute is resolved. If Buyer disputes the amount of the
proposed Additional Taxes ("Ellsworth Group's Proposed Additional Taxes"), then
Buyer and Ellsworth shall meet to negotiate any outstanding differences. If
Buyer, after such meeting, still disagrees with the Ellsworth Group's Proposed
Additional Taxes, and the Ellsworth Group does not accept Buyer's proposed
amount of Additional Taxes (the "Buyer's Proposed Additional Taxes"), then the
dispute shall be submitted to the Accountants, and the Accountants shall review
the Report and the Buyer's and Ellsworth Group's respective Proposed Additional
Taxes. The Ellsworth Group shall give the Accountants full access, during normal
business hours and upon notice to Seller, to all books and records, work papers,
schedules and calculations relating to the Retained Receivables, the expenses of
collection, the Tax Returns and the Additional Taxes. After such review, the
Accountants shall select, on or before ninety (90) days after they began such
review, as the final amount of Additional Taxes (the "Final Amount"), the
Buyer's Proposed Additional Taxes, the Ellsworth Group's proposed Additional
Taxes, or an amount that falls between the two, and shall promptly give written
notice to Buyer and the Ellsworth Group of such determination. Each of Buyer and
Ellsworth Group shall be bound by such determination, and within five days after
its receipt of such notice Buyer shall pay to Seller, subject to the Maximum, an
amount equal to the Final Amount, except that if such payment relates to
Additional Taxes paid by Ellsworth for 2003 (which shall include the Additional
Taxes paid by Ellsworth with respect to receipt during 2003 of the payment under
this Section 3.2.2), the amount to be paid by Buyer to Seller in 2004 (which
shall not take into account any taxes to be paid by Ellsworth in 2005 with
respect to receipt during 2004 of the payment under this Section 3.2.2) shall be
1.25 times the Final Amount (subject to the Maximum). The fees and expenses of
such Accountants shall be paid one-half by the Ellsworth Group and one-half by
Buyer.

                           3.2.3 Reimbursement for JXM Start-Up Expenses. In
connection with its purchase of the Interest, on the Closing Date (or thereafter
within ten (10) days after appropriate documentation is submitted to Buyer),
Buyer will reimburse Holdings for its documented unreimbursed out-of-pocket
expenses related to the initial start-up of JXM up to $200,000 in the aggregate.
The types of expenses to be reimbursed are set forth on Schedule 3.2.3 hereto.

                           3.2.4 Conditional Payments

                                    (a) As additional consideration for the
Assets, Buyer will make the following quarterly payments to Seller with respect
to the three year period commencing on July 1, 2002 and ending on June 30, 2005
(the "Earn Out Period"), based on Buyer's net collections during the Earn Out
Period of payments for new orders for magazines only from new customers
generated post-Closing by the two Montana call centers acquired from Seller (the
"Seller Earn Out"). Such net collections will not include any collections of
payments for orders of magazines (whether new or renewals) from purchasers who
were already Seller's customers on the Closing Date ("Existing Customers"). The
Seller Earn Out will be based on the following schedule:


<CAPTION>
              Quarterly Collections ($M)              Quarterly Earn Out
                                                  
                  Under 3.0                              $225,000
                  3.0 to 3.99                             275,000
                  4.0 to 4.99                             525,000
                  5.0 to 5.99                             625,000
                  Over 6.0                                775,000


         A payment of two hundred seventy-five thousand dollars ($275,000) will
be guaranteed for each of the first two quarters. To the extent such guaranteed
payments exceed the amount which would have been paid under the schedule above
based on Buyer's actual collections during the first two quarters, Buyer will
receive a credit against its remaining payments under the Seller Earn Out in
order of maturity.

                                    (b) As additional consideration for the
Interest, Buyer will make the following quarterly payments to Holdings with
respect to the Earn Out Period based on JXM's net collections during the Earn
Out Period (the "JXM Earn Out"). The JXM Earn Out will be based on the following
schedule:


<CAPTION>

                   1.5 to 1.99                              75,000
                   2.0 to 2.49                             125,000
                   2.5 to 2.99                             200,000

<PAGE>
                                    (c) All quarterly payments under (a) and (b)
above will be made by Buyer within thirty (30) days after the end of each such
quarter, and will be accompanied by Buyer's calculation of the amount being
paid.

                                    (d) If the Ellsworth Employment Agreement
terminates during the Earn Out Period other than due to Buyer's breach, then
notwithstanding the actual amount of quarterly net collections, each quarterly
payment under (a) and (b) above shall be in the applicable minimum amount
($225,000 or $50,000) specified above.

                  3.3 Prorations. All matters involving prorations or
adjustments to be made in connection with Closing and not specifically provided
for in some other provision of this Agreement shall be adjusted as follows. All
items to be prorated pursuant to this Section 3.3 shall be prorated as of the
Closing Date, with Buyer to be treated as the lessee under all real estate
leases and equipment or other leases included in the Assumed Contracts, on and
after the Closing Date. Base rent, additional rent, utility expenses and all
other rent paid by Seller under the real estate leases shall be prorated on a
per diem basis using the actual number of days in the month in which Closing
occurs, or in the lease or calendar year in which Closing occurs, as applicable.
If the amount of real estate and ad valorem taxes is not known on the Closing
Date, proration of such taxes will be made based upon the most recently
ascertainable tax bill. Any prepaid state income or franchise taxes or prepaid
federal income taxes will be prorated as of the Closing Date. Any lease payments
or other payments made by Seller under any other Assumed Contracts shall be
prorated on a per diem basis using the actual number of days in the month in
which the Closing occurs, or in the lease or calendar year in which the Closing
occurs, as applicable. Any other or further proration shall be done in a
commercially reasonable manner.

                  3.4 Allocation of Purchase Price. Buyer, Seller and Holdings
have agreed on an allocation of the Purchase Price among the Assets and the
Interest consistent with Section 3.2 and in accordance with the provisions of
Section 1060 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), and
under the applicable Treasury Regulations thereunder, which allocation is
$225,000 to the fixed Assets and the balance to goodwill. Buyer and Seller shall
file an IRS Form 8594 (Asset Acquisition Statement under Code Section 1060) on a
timely basis reporting the allocation of the Purchase Price consistent herewith.
Buyer and Seller shall not take any position on their respective income tax
returns that is inconsistent with the allocation of Purchase Price described
above unless both Buyer and Seller agree to such position in writing.

         4. Representations, Warranties and Covenants of Seller Group. Knowing
that Buyer relies thereon, the Seller Group jointly and severally represents,
warrants and covenants to Buyer on the date hereof and on the Closing Date as
follows:

                  4.1 Authority. The execution, delivery and performance of this
Agreement and all other Documents required to effect the transactions
contemplated hereby and the consummation of the transactions contemplated herein
have been duly authorized by Seller's and Holdings' boards of directors and
shareholders. This Agreement and each Document contemplated hereby are and will
be the valid and legally binding obligations of Seller Group, enforceable in
accordance with their respective terms, except that such enforcement may be
subject to limitations imposed by general principles of equity (regardless of
whether such


                                       8
<PAGE>
enforceability is considered in a proceeding at law or in equity) and to the
effect of applicable bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or other
similar laws of general application relating to or affecting creditors' rights.

                  4.2 Compliance with Laws. Seller has complied in all material
respects with all material Laws relating to the Assets and Seller's operation of
the Business, and JXM has complied in all material respects with all material
Laws relating to its assets and the operation of its business. Neither Seller
nor JXM has received written notice of any alleged violation of or claim under
any such Laws, and Seller Group knows of no reasonable basis for a violation
thereof which may occur in the future (either upon notice, lapse of time, or
both) and no investigation, charge, claim or other action under any such Laws is
pending or, to the knowledge of Seller Group, threatened, which would materially
adversely affect the Business or the Assets or the business or assets of JXM.

                  4.3 No Conflict. The consummation of the transactions herein
contemplated including, without limitation, the execution, delivery and
performance of this Agreement and the Documents required to effect the
transactions herein contemplated, will not (1) constitute a violation of or
default under (either immediately or upon notice, lapse of time or both),
conflict with or result in a breach of (a) the Articles of Incorporation or
Bylaws of Seller or Holdings or the Certificate of Formation or Limited
Liability Company Agreement of JXM, or (b) any Judgment; (c) any of the Assumed
Contracts, or (d) any applicable Law; or (2) result in the creation or
imposition of any Encumbrance on any of the Assets or the Interest or give to
any Person (other than Buyer or its Designee) any interest or right in any of
the Assets or the Interest.

                  4.4 Consents. Except as set forth on Schedule 4.4, no Consent
is required to be obtained by Seller Group in connection with the execution,
delivery and performance by Seller Group of this Agreement or the consummation
of the transactions contemplated hereby.

                  4.5 Title to Assets; Encumbrances. Except as set forth on

clear of all Encumbrances. No Person, other than Buyer, has any Contract to
acquire any of the Assets or the Business or the Interest. Upon consummation of
the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, Buyer shall acquire good and
valid title to all of the Assets and the Interest, free and clear of all
Encumbrances. Holdings owns no assets other than the Interest, cash and cash
equivalents. JXM has good and valid title to its assets, free and clear of all
Encumbrances.

                           4.6.3 Except as set forth on Schedule 4.6, all of the

was not a regular full-time employee of the appropriate Company at the time such
person created to such Companies' Software and Companies' Intellectual Property,
such author or developer has irrevocably assigned to the appropriate Company in

respect to such Companies' Software and Companies' Intellectual Property.

                           4.6.4 With respect to the Companies' Software (i) the

trade secret, trademark, service mark or other Intangible Property of any
Person. None of the Companies' Software or Companies' Intellectual Property is

the Companies' Software or Companies' Intellectual Property. To the knowledge of
the Seller Group, no Person is violating or infringing upon, or has violated or
infringed upon at any time, any of the Companies' Software or Companies'
Intellectual Property.

                           4.6.6 No portion of the Companies' Software contains
any "back door," "time bomb," "Trojan horse," "worm," "drop dead device,"

                  4.7 Condition and Sufficiency of Assets. Set forth on Schedule
4.7(a) is a complete and accurate list of all items of Tangible Personal
Property. The parties intend that Schedule 4.7(a) contains each and every

presumed to be included in the Assets of Seller purchased hereunder. All
Tangible Personal Property is in good operating condition, ordinary wear and
tear excepted and is sufficient for the continued conduct of Seller's Business
after the Closing in substantially the same manner as conducted prior to the
Closing for the reasonable, useful life of the asset. Set forth on Schedule
4.7(b) is a complete and accurate list of JXM Tangible Personal Property. All
JXM Tangible Personal Property is in good operating condition, ordinary wear and
tear excepted.

                  4.8 Proceedings. There are no Proceedings existing, and Seller
Group has no knowledge after reasonable inquiry of any such Proceedings pending
or threatened, against or affecting Seller Group or JXM, which would prevent the
consummation of the transactions contemplated herein. To the best of Seller

and reports required to be filed by them, all of which were accurately prepared
and accurately reflect all items of revenue and expense, and the Companies have

Persons engaged in the Seller's Business and JXM's business all amounts required

the assessment of any such Tax against Seller or JXM. There are no Encumbrances
on any of the Assets or the assets of JXM that arose in connection with any
failure (or alleged failure) to pay any Tax.

                  4.11 No Material Adverse Change. Except as set forth in

Benefit Plans, Seller will have made, on or prior to the Closing Date, all
payments required to be made by it on or prior to the Closing Date and will have
accrued (in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles

4063 or 4064 of ERISA, and no termination or partial termination (including any

increase any benefits otherwise payable under any of Seller's Employee Benefit
Plans, or (iii) result in the acceleration of the time of payment or vesting of

will occur which will result in Liability to Seller in connection with any

terminate or not renew its Contract (to the extent one exists) with Seller or
JXM before the scheduled expiration date or otherwise terminate its relationship
with Seller or JXM or reduce the quantity of products to be supplied in the
future, and no event has occurred which could reasonably lead Seller or JXM to
believe that any of the foregoing may occur in the future. Except as described
in Schedule 4.17, each of the Companies enjoys good and normal relationships
with suppliers of its respective business, and neither Company has experienced
any significant problems with suppliers during the three years prior to the date

case may be, and the rules and regulations promulgated under each of such
respective acts. The Cross Media SEC Reports (including all exhibits and
schedules thereto and documents incorporated by reference therein) did not, at
the time they were filed (or, if amended or superseded by filing prior to the
date hereof, then on the date of such filing), contain any untrue


                                       21
<PAGE>
statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be
stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of
the circumstances under which they were made, not materially misleading.

                           5.8.2 All financial statements, including all related
notes and schedules, contained in each of the Cross Media SEC Reports (or
incorporated by reference therein) fairly present the consolidated financial

a consistent basis throughout the periods indicated (except for changes in
accounting principles disclosed in the notes thereto) and subject, in the case
of interim financial statements, to normal year-end adjustments.

                           5.8.3 For the twelve month period preceding the date
hereof, Cross Media has filed with AMEX all reports required to be filed under
its applicable rules and regulations, and such reports comply in all material
respects with such rules and regulations.

                  5.9 Absence of Certain Changes or Events. Since December 31,
2001, and except as expressly permitted by or disclosed pursuant to this
Agreement, there has not been any change, or any event involving a prospective
change, in the business, assets, liabilities, financial condition or results of
operations of Cross Media Group which has had, or is reasonably likely to have,
a material adverse effect on Cross Media Group.

                  5.10 Permits; No Violation of Law. The businesses of Cross
Media Group are not being conducted in violation of any Law or in violation of
any Permits, except for violations none of which, individually or in the
aggregate, may reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on them.
No investigation or review by any Governmental Entity (including any stock
exchange or other self-regulatory body) with respect to the Cross Media Group in
relation to any alleged violation of law or regulation is pending or, to their
knowledge, threatened, nor has any Governmental Entity (including any stock
exchange or other self-regulatory body) indicated an intention to conduct the
same, except for such investigations which, if they resulted in adverse
findings, would not reasonably be expected to have, a material adverse effect on
the Cross Media Group.

                  5.11 Statements True and Correct. No representation or
warranty made by Buyer in this Agreement contains any untrue statement of a
material fact or omits to state any material fact necessary to make the
statements contained herein not materially misleading.

         6. Covenants and Other Agreements. The parties covenant and agree as
follows (each party being responsible for its own covenants and agreements
contained herein):

                  6.1 Access and Investigation. Between the date of this
Agreement and the Closing, Seller Group will (a) afford Buyer and its
representatives full and free access to the Companies' and Holdings' personnel,
properties, contracts, books and records, and other documents and data relating
to JXM, the Business and the Assets, (b) furnish such copies of such contracts,
books and records as Buyer may reasonably request at Buyer's expense, and (c)


                                       22
<PAGE>
furnish Buyer and its advisors with such additional financial, operating and
other data and information as Buyer may reasonably request.

                  6.2 Refunds and Reimbursement. In the event that either party
hereto at any time receives any funds from a third party that are properly
payable to the other party hereto, the party receiving such funds shall promptly
remit them to the party entitled to them.

                  6.3 Renewal Orders. During the five-year period beginning on
the Closing Date, if Seller requests Buyer to handle renewal orders from
Seller's Existing Customers, Buyer will make monthly payments to Seller based on
Buyer's net collections of renewal orders from Seller's Existing Customers, as
follows: from such collections, Buyer will first retain $48.00 (an amount equal
to Buyer's costs) out of each collected renewal sale, and the Seller will be
paid by Buyer an amount equal to 50% of every dollar collected on each such
invoice thereafter. All such monthly payments will be made by Buyer to Seller
within twenty (25) days after the end of each month, and will be accompanied by
Buyer's calculation of the amount being paid. During that time, while Seller so
requests, all such Existing Customers will be contacted by Buyer's renewal
department with Seller's cooperation and assistance as reasonably requested by
Buyer.

                  6.4 Audit Right. Seller Group will have the right, at
reasonable times and upon reasonable notice to Buyer, to audit Buyer's financial
information upon which the payments to Seller under Sections 3.2.4, 6.3 and 6.5
(each a "Specified Payment") are calculated, subject to the provisions of the
Confidentiality Agreement. Buyer shall give the Seller Group and its
representatives full access during the Audit Period, during normal business
hours and upon notice to Buyer that the Seller Group wishes to review such
financial information. If the Seller Group does not dispute the amount of the
Specified Payment within said Audit Period, then the Seller Group shall be
deemed to agree to the amount of the Specified Payment made by Buyer; if the
Seller Group does dispute the amount of the Specified Payment before the end of
the Audit Period, then Buyer and Ellsworth shall meet to negotiate any
outstanding differences. If they cannot agree on the amount of the Specified
Payment, then the dispute shall be submitted to the Accountants, and the
Accountants shall review the amount of the Specified Payment. Buyer shall give
the Accountants full access, during normal business hours and upon notice to
Buyer, to all books and records, work papers, schedules and calculations
relating to the amount of the Specified Payment. After such review, the
Accountants shall determine, on or before ninety (90) days after they began such
review, the final amount of the Specified Payment (the "Final Specified Payment
Amount"), and shall promptly give written notice to Buyer and the Seller Group
of such determination. Each of Buyer and Seller Group shall be bound by such
determination, and Buyer shall pay the Final Specified Payment Amount (less the
amount previously paid, if any) to Seller Group within five days after its
receipt of such notice. The fees and expenses of the Accountants shall be paid
one-half by the Seller Group and one-half by Buyer.

                  6.5 Retained Receivables. Buyer will, if requested by Seller,
collect the Retained Receivables for Seller (on an oldest account collected
first basis, except if otherwise directed or indicated by the account debtor)
for a fee to be mutually agreed upon by Buyer and Seller. All such collections
shall be remitted by Buyer to Seller (net of the fee) on a monthly

                                       23
<PAGE>
basis, within ten (10) days after the end of each month, accompanied by a report
detailing the Retained Receivables collected.

                  6.6 Conduct of Business. Except as otherwise expressly
contemplated hereby, the Seller Group covenants and agrees that (x) between the
date hereof and the Closing Date, unless Buyer shall otherwise expressly consent
in writing, the Business and the business of JXM shall be conducted only in, and
such entities shall not take any action except in, the ordinary course of
business and in a manner consistent with the business plans disclosed to Buyer;
(y) each of Seller and JXM will use their best efforts to preserve substantially
intact their existing businesses and business organizations, to keep available
the services of those of their present officers, employees and consultants who
are integral to the operation of their businesses as presently conducted and to
preserve their present relationships with suppliers and with other persons with
whom they have significant business relations; and (z) each of JXM, Seller and
Holdings will not, between the date hereof and the Closing Date, directly or
indirectly, do any of the following without the prior written consent of Buyer:

any of the provisions of this Agreement;

                                    (c) take any action which it believes when
taken could reasonably be expected to adversely affect or delay in any material
respect the ability of any of the Parties to obtain any approval of any
Governmental Entity required to consummate the transactions contemplated hereto;

                                    (d) take any action which would cause its
representations and warranties contained herein to become inaccurate in any
material respect;

                                    (e) participate in any sale of all or any

the termination of all of Seller's employees, with an effective date of such
termination being the Closing Date. Seller will not terminate, or permit the
termination of, its employees prior to the Closing Date in anticipation of the
Closing (provided, however, that Seller may continue to terminate employees from
time to time in a manner consistent with historical practices and may permit the
termination


                                       26

and continue in full force through and until the earlier of the applicable

respect to particular covenants, until such other date as may be expressly
specified herein for such covenants ("Expiration Date"). No claim for
indemnification under Sections 9.1 or 9.2 of this Agreement shall be brought
after the applicable Expiration Date, provided that the foregoing time
limitations shall not limit indemnification rights with respect to any claim
properly made within such time limitations, and provided further that
notwithstanding any of the foregoing, the limitations of the Expiration Date and
of Section 9.3.2 below shall not apply to any claim for indemnification with
respect to a breach involving (a) recklessness, knowing or reckless

                  9.4 Claim Notice. A party seeking indemnification hereunder
(an "Indemnified Party") will promptly notify the party from whom the
indemnification is sought (the "Indemnifying Party") in writing of such claim
(such notice, a "Claim Notice"), setting forth in reasonable detail the nature
of such claim and will provide the Indemnifying Party such information with
respect to such claim as the Indemnifying Party may reasonably request.

                  9.5 Procedures.

                           9.5.1 If any Proceeding (including any governmental
investigation) is brought or asserted by any third party against an Indemnified
Party in respect of which indemnity properly may be sought pursuant to Sections
9.1 above ("Claim") from the Indemnifying Party, then the Indemnifying Party
will have the right, exercisable by written notice to the Indemnified Party
within 30 days of receipt of the Claim Notice, to assume the defense thereof,
including employment of counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified
Party, and will assume the payment of fees and expenses of such counsel. Such
Indemnified Party will have the right to employ separate counsel in any such
action and to participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of
such counsel will be at the expense of such Indemnified Party unless the
Indemnifying Party has agreed to pay such fees and expenses.

                           9.5.2 If a Claim is brought and either (i) the
Indemnifying Party does not inform the Indemnified Party in writing within 30
days after receipt of the Claim Notice that it will assume the defense of the
Claim, or (ii) the Indemnifying Party does not assume defense of the Claim
within a reasonable time after notifying the Indemnified Party that it will
assume the defense of the Claim, then the Indemnified Party will have the right
to assume the defense thereof, including the employment of counsel reasonably
satisfactory to such Indemnifying Party, and the Indemnifying Party will assume
the payment of fees and expenses of such counsel. The Indemnifying Party will
not be liable for any settlement of any such action or proceeding effected
without its written consent, but if settled with its written consent, or if
there be a final judgment for the plaintiff in any such action or proceeding,
the Indemnifying Party shall indemnify and hold harmless such Indemnified Party
from and against any loss of liability (to the extent stated above) by reason of
such settlement or judgment.

                           9.5.3 Subject to Section 9.6 below, all payments owed
by the Indemnitor to the Indemnitee (if any) shall be paid in full within 15
business days after a final Judgment (without further right of appeal)
determining the amount owed is rendered, or after a final settlement or
agreement as to the amount is executed.

                  9.6 Right of Set-Off. Upon notice to Seller specifying in
reasonable detail the basis for such set-off, Buyer may set off any amounts to
which it may be entitled under this Section 9 against any amounts otherwise
payable to Seller Group hereunder or otherwise. The exercise of such right of
set-off by Buyer in good faith, whether or not ultimately determined to be
justified, will not constitute a breach of Buyer's obligation hereunder or
otherwise to make any payments to Seller Group. Neither the exercise of nor the
failure to exercise such right of set-off will constitute an election of
remedies or limit Buyer in any manner in the enforcement of any other remedies
that may be available to it.

                  9.7 Other Remedies. The indemnification rights of the Buyer
hereunder are independent of and in addition to such other rights and remedies
as Buyer may have in law or equity.


                                       32
<PAGE>
         10. Notices. After the Closing, Seller will deliver to Buyer all
notices, correspondence and other items relating to the Assets which are from
time to time received by it or are in its possession.

         11. Miscellaneous.

                  11.1 Disclosure. Without the prior written consent of Buyer,
Seller Group will not (i) issue any publicity release or announcement concerning
this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby or (ii) disclose (other
than to their attorneys, accountants, shareholders, creditors and consultants)
the terms set forth in this Agreement.

                  11.2 Confidentiality. All information furnished by Seller
Group to Buyer or furnished by Buyer to Seller Group pursuant hereto, or in
connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, shall be treated as the
sole property of the party furnishing the information ("Disclosing Party") until
the Closing. If the Closing does not occur or this Agreement is terminated, the
party receiving the information ("Receiving Party") will return to the
Disclosing Party all documents or other materials containing, reflecting or
referring to such information, will use its best efforts to keep confidential
all of such information and will not directly or indirectly use such
information. The foregoing sentence shall not apply to information which is or
becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of a disclosure
by the Receiving Party and other than as a result of the breach of a duty of
confidentiality owed to the Disclosing Party. In the event that a Receiving
Party or its representatives is requested or required (by oral questions,
interrogatories, requests for information, documents subpoena, civil
investigative demand or similar process) to disclose any such confidential
information or the fact that such confidential information has been made
available, the Receiving Party and its representatives will provide the
Disclosing Party with prompt written notice of each such request, so that the
Disclosing Party may seek an appropriate protective order or other appropriate
remedy and/or waive compliance with the provisions of this Agreement. If, in the
absence of a protective order or other appropriate remedy or the receipt of a
waiver hereunder, the Receiving Party is nonetheless, in the opinion of its
counsel, compelled to disclose information concerning the Disclosing Party to
any party or else stand liable for contempt or suffer other censure or penalty,
the Receiving Party may disclose such information to such party without
liability hereunder, provided that it furnishes only that portion of the
confidential information which is legally required and exercises its best
efforts to obtain reliable assurances of confidential treatment of the
confidential information being disclosed. The parties acknowledge and agree that
the Confidentiality Agreement shall remain in full force and effect following
the Closing in accordance with the terms of such letter of intent.

                  11.3 Notices. All notices and other communications required to
be given hereunder shall be in writing and shall be (a) delivered by hand, (b)
delivered by a reputable commercial overnight delivery service, or (c)
transmitted by facsimile, in each case, sent to the address of the Party set
forth on the first page of this Agreement or the facsimile number of the party
set forth below. Such notices shall be effective: (i) in the case of hand
deliveries, when received; (ii) in the case of an overnight delivery service,
when received; and (iii) in the case of facsimile transmission, when electronic
confirmation of receipt is received by the sender. Any party hereto may change
its address and facsimile number by written notice to the other party in


                                       33
<PAGE>
accordance with this provision, provided that such notice shall be effective
only upon receipt. Any facsimile notice provided to Seller Group shall be sent
to (800) 914-0067. Any facsimile notice provided to Buyer shall be sent to (212)
457-1201. A copy of each notice to Buyer will be simultaneously sent to Lawrence
Finkelstein, Esquire, Blank Rome Comisky & McCauley LLP, One Logan Square,
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103.

                  11.4 Entire Agreement. This Agreement (including the Appendix,
Exhibits and Schedules hereto) contains the entire agreement among the parties
with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or
contemporaneous agreements, written or oral, with respect thereto.

                  11.5 Waivers and Amendments. This Agreement may be amended,
modified, superseded, canceled, renewed or extended, and the terms and
conditions hereof may be waived, only by a written instrument signed by all the
parties or, in the case of a waiver, by the party waiving compliance. Neither
the failure nor any delay by any party in exercising any right, power or
privilege under this Agreement or the Documents referred to in this Agreement or
otherwise will operate as a waiver of such right, power or privilege, and no
single or partial exercise of any such right, power or privilege will preclude
any other or further exercise of such right, power or privilege or the exercise
of any other right, power or privilege.

                  11.6 Binding Agreement; No Third Party Beneficiaries. All of
the terms and provisions of this Agreement will be binding upon, inure to the
benefit of and be enforceable by each of the parties hereto and their respective
successors and permitted assigns. There are no third party beneficiaries of this
Agreement other than Buyer Group (solely with respect to Section 9).

                  11.7 Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed and
construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, not including
its conflicts of laws provisions.

                  11.8 Jurisdiction; Service of Process. Any action or
proceeding seeking to enforce any provision of, or based on any right arising
out of, this Agreement may be brought against any of the Parties in the courts
of the State of New York, County of New York, or, if it has jurisdiction
therein, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New
York, and each of the Parties consents to the jurisdiction of such courts (and
of the appropriate appellate courts) in any such actions or proceeding and
waives any objections to the venue laid therein. Process in any action or
proceeding referred to in the preceding sentence may be served on any Party
anywhere in the world by notice given in accordance with Section 11.3 of this
Agreement.

                  11.9 Assignment. This Agreement and the rights and obligations
of the parties hereto shall not be transferred, assigned or delegated by either
party to any Person, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written
consent of the other party; provided, however, that Buyer may assign its rights
and obligations hereunder to MOS or any other subsidiary of Buyer, in which
event Buyer shall guaranty the performance of the assignee's obligations
hereunder.


                                       34
<PAGE>
                  11.10 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is
determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable,
such determination shall not affect the remaining provisions of this Agreement,
all of which will remain in full force and effect.

                  11.11 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in two or
more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original but all of which
together will constitute one and the same instrument.

                  11.12 Exhibits and Schedules. The Appendix, Exhibits and
Schedules to this Agreement are a part of this Agreement as if set forth in full
herein. Each member of the Seller Group acknowledges and agrees that Buyer's due
diligence and Buyer's cooperation and assistance in the preparation of Schedules
4.4 through 4.22 hereto shall not affect or limit the Seller Group's
responsibility and liability for such Schedules and the related warranties and
representations, and that such Schedules and the related warranties and
representations are the sole responsibility of the Seller Group.

                  11.13 Headings. The headings in this Agreement are for
reference purposes only and will not in any way affect the meaning or
interpretation of this Agreement.

                  11.14 Neutral Construction. The parties have negotiated this
Agreement and all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement in
good faith and at arms' length, and each party has been represented by counsel
during such negotiations. No term, condition, or provision contained in this
Agreement will be construed against any party or in favor of any party (i)
because such party or such party's counsel drafted, revised, commented upon, or
did not comment upon, such term, condition, or provision; or (ii) because of any
presumption as to any inequality of bargaining power between or among the
parties. Furthermore, all terms, conditions, and provisions contained in this
Agreement will be construed and interpreted in a manner which is consistent with
all other terms, conditions, and provisions contained in this Agreement.

                  11.15 Termination. This Agreement may, by notice given prior
to or at the Closing, be terminated:

                           11.15.1 by either Buyer or Seller if a material
breach of any provision of this Agreement has been committed by the other party
and such breach has not been waived;

                           11.15.2 by Buyer if any of the conditions in Section

condition is or becomes impossible (other than through the failure of Buyer to
comply with its obligations under this Agreement) and Buyer has not waived such
condition on or before the Closing Date;

                           11.15.3 by Seller, if any of the conditions in

waived such condition on or before the Closing Date;
