                           written notice of its intention to terminate the
                           Executive's employment, provided, however, that such
                           notice shall not be effective prior to the earlier to
                           occur of (A) the first anniversary of the date the
                           Executive incurred the Disability or (B) the
                           expiration of short-term disability benefits pursuant
                           to any applicable Company benefit plan. In that
                           event, the Executive's employment with the Company
                           shall terminate effective on the later to occur of
                           (X) the 30th day after the receipt of such notice by
                           the Executive or (Y) the earlier to occur of the
                           events described in subparagraphs (A) or (B) of this
                           Section 4(a)(ii), provided that prior to the
                           effective date of such termination, the Executive
                           shall not have returned to full-time performance of
                           her duties.

                  (iii)    Termination for Cause. The Company may terminate the
                           Executive's employment for Cause.

                  (iv)     Termination without Cause. The Company may terminate
                           the Executive's employment without Cause.

                  (v)      Resignation for Good Reason. The Executive may resign
                           her employment for Good Reason.

                  (vi)     Resignation without Good Reason. The Executive may
                           resign her employment without Good Reason.

                  (vii)    Non-extension of Term by the Company. The Company may
                           give notice of non-extension to the Executive
                           pursuant to Section 2(b).

                  (viii)   Non-extension of Term by the Executive. The Executive
                           may give notice of non-extension to the Company
                           pursuant to Section 2(b).

         (b)      Notice of Termination. Any termination of the Executive's
                  employment by the Company or by the Executive under this
                  Section 4 (other than termination pursuant to paragraph
                  (a)(i)) shall be communicated by a written notice to the other
                  party hereto indicating the specific termination provision in
                  this Agreement relied upon, setting forth in reasonable detail
                  the facts and circumstances claimed to provide a basis for
                  termination of the Executive's employment under the provision
                  so indicated, and specifying a Date of Termination which, if
                  submitted by the Executive, shall be at least 30 days
                  following the date of such notice (a "Notice of Termination")
                  provided, however, that the Company may, in its sole
                  discretion, change the Date of Termination to any date
                  following the Company's receipt of the Notice of Termination.
                  A Notice of Termination submitted by the Company may provide
                  for a Date of Termination on the date the Executive receives
                  the Notice of Termination, or any date thereafter elected by
                  the Company in its sole discretion. The failure by the
                  Executive or the Company to set forth in the Notice of
                  Termination any fact or circumstance which contributes to a
                  showing of Cause or Good Reason shall not waive any right of
                  the Executive or the Company hereunder or preclude the
                  Executive or the Company from asserting such fact or
                  circumstance in enforcing the Executive's or the Company's
                  rights hereunder.

         (c)      Company Obligations upon Termination. Upon termination of the
                  Executive's employment, the Executive (or the Executive's
                  estate) shall be entitled to receive (i) except in the event
                  of the Executive's Disability, any amount of the Executive's
                  Annual Base Salary through the Date of Termination not
                  theretofore paid, (ii) any expenses owed to the Executive
                  under Section 3(f), (iii) any accrued vacation pay owed to the
                  Executive pursuant to Section 3(e), and (iv) any amount
                  arising from the Executive's participation in, or benefits
                  under any employee benefit plans, programs or arrangements
                  under Section 3(d), which amounts shall be payable in
                  accordance with the terms and conditions of such employee
                  benefit plans, programs or arrangements including, if
                  applicable, any death benefits. In the event of the
                  Executive's Disability, in lieu of Annual Base Salary during
                  such

                                       7

<PAGE>

                  period of Disability, Executive shall be entitled to receive
                  any applicable short-term disability benefits pursuant to any
                  applicable Company benefit plan.

5.       SEVERANCE PAYMENTS

         (a)      Termination due to Death or Disability. If the Executive's
                  employment shall terminate pursuant to Section 4(a)(i) due to
                  the Executive's death, or pursuant to Section 4(a)(ii) due to
                  Executive's Disability, then the Company shall pay to the
                  Executive (or Executive's estate) a prorated amount of the
                  Executive's Annual Bonus based on the Company's year-to-date
                  performance through the Date of Termination in relation to the
                  performance targets set forth in the Executive Bonus Plan
                  (such amount to be determined in good faith by the
                  Compensation Committee and payable at such time as the
                  Executive's Annual Bonus would otherwise have been payable
                  pursuant to the Executive Bonus Plan).

         (b)      Termination without Cause, resignation for Good Reason, or
                  non-extension of the Term by the Company. If the Executive's
                  employment shall terminate without Cause pursuant to Section
                  4(a)(iv), for Good Reason pursuant to Section 4(a)(v), or
                  pursuant to non-extension of the Term by the Company pursuant
                  to Section 4(a)(vii), the Company shall, subject to the
                  Executive's execution of a general waiver and release of
                  claims agreement in the Company's customary form:

                  (i)      Continue to pay to the Executive her base salary as
                           described in Section 3(a), in accordance with the
                           Company's regular payroll practices, during the
                           period beginning on the Date of Termination and
                           ending on the earliest to occur of (A) the six-month
                           anniversary of the Date of Termination; or (B) the
                           first date that the Executive violates any covenant
                           contained in Section 6, or 7; and

                  (ii)     Pay to the Executive a prorated amount of the
                           Executive's Annual Bonus based on the Company's
                           year-to-date performance through the Date of
                           Termination in relation to the performance targets
                           set forth in the Executive Bonus Plan (such amount to
                           be determined in good faith by the Compensation
                           Committee and payable at such time as Executive's
                           Annual Bonus would otherwise have been payable
                           pursuant to the Executive Bonus Plan).

         (c)      Survival. The expiration or termination of the Term shall not
                  impair the rights or obligations of any party hereto, which
                  shall have accrued prior to such expiration or termination.

6.       NON-COMPETITION; NON-SOLICITATION

         (a)      The Executive shall not, at any time during the Term or during
                  the six-month period following the Date of Termination (the
                  "Restricted Period") directly or indirectly engage in, have
                  any equity interest in, or manage or operate (whether as
                  director, officer, employee, agent, representative, partner,

                  Entities"):

                  (i)      Verizon Information Services, a division of Verizon

                  (v)      R. H. Donnelley Inc. (including Sprint Publishing &

                  (viii)   Yellow Pages Group Company

                  (ix)     White Directory Publishers, Inc.

                  provided, however, that the Executive shall be permitted to
                  acquire a passive stock or equity interest in such entity
                  provided the stock or other equity interest acquired is not
                  more than five percent (5%) of the outstanding interest in
                  such entity; and provided, further, that, notwithstanding the
                  foregoing, at no time during the Restricted Period may the
                  Executive directly or indirectly engage in, have any equity
                  interest in, or manage or operate (whether as director,
                  officer, employee, agent, representative, partner, security
                  holder, consultant or otherwise) any parent entity or other
                  Affiliate of any of the Competitive Entities to the extent
                  that such parent entity or other Affiliate engages in (or the
                  Executive's services therefor relate to) telephone directory
                  publishing, marketing or advertising (or any other business
                  directly engaged in by the Company during the Restricted
                  Period).

         (b)      During the Restricted Period, the Executive will not, and will
                  not permit any of her affiliates to, directly or indirectly,
                  recruit or otherwise solicit or induce any employee, customer,
                  subscriber or supplier of the Company to terminate its
                  employment or arrangement with the Company, otherwise change
                  its relationship with the Company, or establish any
                  relationship with the Executive or any of her affiliates for
                  any business purpose deemed competitive with the business of
                  the Company.

         (c)      In the event the terms of this Section 6 shall be determined
                  by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable by
                  reason of its extending for too great a period of time or over
                  too great a geographical area or by reason of its being too
                  extensive in any other respect, it will be interpreted to
                  extend only over the maximum period of time for which it may
                  be enforceable, over the maximum geographical area as to which
                  it may be enforceable, or to the maximum extent in

                                       9

<PAGE>

                  all other respects as to which it may be enforceable, all as
                  determined by such court in such action.

         (d)      As used in this Section 6, the term "Company" shall include
                  the Company, its parent, related entities, and any of its
                  direct or indirect subsidiaries.

         (e)      The provisions contained in Section 6(a) and Section 6(b) may
                  be altered and/or waived with the prior written consent of the
                  Board or the Compensation Committee.

7.       NONDISCLOSURE OF PROPRIETARY INFORMATION; NON-DISPARAGEMENT

         (a)      Except as required in the faithful performance of the
                  Executive's duties hereunder or pursuant to Section 7(c), the
                  Executive shall, during the Term and after the Date of
                  Termination, maintain in confidence and shall not directly or
                  indirectly, use, disseminate, disclose or publish, or use for
                  his benefit or the benefit of any person, firm, corporation or
                  other entity any confidential or proprietary information or
                  trade secrets of or relating to the Company, including,
                  without limitation, information with respect to the Company's
                  operations, processes, protocols, products, inventions,
                  business practices, finances, principals, vendors, suppliers,
                  customers, potential customers, marketing methods, costs,
                  prices, contractual relationships, regulatory status,
                  compensation paid to employees or other terms of employment
                  ("Proprietary Information"), or deliver to any person, firm,
                  corporation or other entity any document, record, notebook,
                  computer program or similar repository of or containing any
                  such Proprietary Information. The Executive's obligation to
                  maintain and not use, disseminate, disclose or publish, or use
                  for his benefit or the benefit of any person, firm,
                  corporation or other entity any Proprietary Information after
                  the Date of Termination will continue so long as such
                  Proprietary Information is not, or has not by legitimate means
                  become, generally known and in the public domain (other than
                  by means of the Executive's direct or indirect disclosure of
                  such Proprietary Information) and is continued to be
                  maintained as Proprietary Information by the Company. The
                  parties hereby stipulate and agree that as between them, the
                  Proprietary Information identified herein is important,
                  material and affects the successful conduct of the businesses
                  of the Company (and any successor or assignee of the Company).

         (b)      Upon termination of the Executive's employment with the
                  Company for any reason, the Executive will promptly deliver to
                  the Company all correspondence, drawings, manuals, letters,
                  notes, notebooks, reports, programs, plans, proposals,
                  financial documents, or any other documents concerning the
                  Company's customers, business plans, marketing strategies,
                  products or processes.

         (c)      The Executive may respond to a lawful and valid subpoena or
                  other legal process but shall give the Company the earliest
                  possible notice thereof, shall, as much in advance of the
                  return date as possible, make available to the Company and its

                                       10

<PAGE>

                  counsel the documents and other information sought and shall
                  assist such counsel in resisting or otherwise responding to
                  such process.

         (d)      The Executive agrees not to disparage the Company, any of its
                  products or practices, or any of its directors, officers,
                  agents, representatives, stockholders or affiliates, either
                  orally or in writing, at any time; provided, that the
                  Executive may confer in confidence with her legal
                  representatives and make truthful statements as required by
                  law.

         (e)      The Company agrees to instruct the members of the Board and
                  the executive officers of the Company not to disparage the
                  Executive, either orally or in writing, at any time; provided,
                  that, the Company may confer in confidence with its legal
                  representatives and make truthful statements as required by
                  law.

         (f)      As used in this Section 7, the term "Company" shall include
                  the Company, its parent, related entities, and any of its
                  direct or indirect subsidiaries.

8.       INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

         It is recognized and acknowledged by the Executive that a breach of the
covenants contained in Sections 6 and 7 will cause irreparable damage to Company
and its goodwill, the exact amount of which will be difficult or impossible to
ascertain, and that the remedies at law for any such breach will be inadequate.
Accordingly, the Executive agrees that in the event of a breach of any of the
covenants contained in Sections 6 and 7, in addition to any other remedy which
may be available at law or in equity, the Company will be entitled to specific
performance and injunctive relief.

9.       ASSIGNMENT AND SUCCESSORS

         The Company may assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement
to any entity, including any successor to all or substantially all the assets of
the Company, by merger or otherwise, and may assign or encumber this Agreement
and its rights hereunder as security for indebtedness of the Company and its
affiliates. The Executive may not assign her rights or obligations under this
Agreement to any individual or entity. This Agreement shall be binding upon and
inure to the benefit of the Company, the Executive and their respective
successors, assigns, personnel and legal representatives, executors,
administrators, heirs, distributees, devisees, and legatees, as applicable.

         The terms of this Agreement and the other agreements and instruments
contemplated hereby or referred to herein (collectively the "Related

agreement with respect to the employment of the Executive by the Company and may

(including without limitation any Term Sheet or similar agreement entered into
between the Company and the Executive). The parties further intend that this
Agreement and the Related Agreements shall constitute the complete and exclusive
statement of their terms and that no extrinsic evidence whatsoever may be
introduced in any judicial, administrative, or other legal proceeding to vary
the terms of this Agreement and the Related Agreements.

15.      AMENDMENTS; WAIVERS

         This Agreement may not be modified, amended, or terminated except by an
instrument in writing, signed by the Executive and a duly authorized officer of
Company. By an instrument in writing similarly executed, the Executive or a duly
authorized officer of the Company may waive compliance by the other party or
parties with any provision of this Agreement that such other party was or is
obligated to comply with or perform, provided, however, that such waiver shall
not operate as a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to, any other or subsequent
failure. No failure to exercise and no delay in exercising any right, remedy, or
power hereunder preclude any other or further exercise of any other right,
remedy, or power provided herein or by law or in equity.

16.      NO INCONSISTENT ACTIONS

         The parties hereto shall not voluntarily undertake or fail to undertake
any action or course of action inconsistent with the provisions or essential
intent of this Agreement. Furthermore, it is the intent of the parties hereto to
act in a fair and reasonable manner with respect to the interpretation and
application of the provisions of this Agreement.

17.      CONSTRUCTION

         This Agreement shall be deemed drafted equally by both the parties. Its
language shall be construed as a whole and according to its fair meaning. Any
presumption or principle that the language is to be construed against any party
shall not apply. The headings in this Agreement are only for convenience and are
not intended to affect construction or interpretation. Any references to
paragraphs, subparagraphs, sections or subsections are to those parts of this
Agreement, unless the context clearly indicates to the contrary. Also, unless
the context clearly indicates to the contrary, (a) the plural includes the
singular and the singular includes the plural;

                                       13

<PAGE>

(b) "and" and "or" are each used both conjunctively and disjunctively; (c)
"any," "all," "each," or "every" means "any and all," and "each and every"; (d)
"includes" and "including" are each "without limitation"; (e) "herein,"
"hereof," "hereunder" and other similar compounds of the word "here" refer to
the entire Agreement and not to any particular paragraph, subparagraph, section
or subsection; and (f) all pronouns and any variations thereof shall be deemed
to refer to the masculine, feminine, neuter, singular or plural as the identity
of the entities or persons referred to may require.

18.      ARBITRATION

         Any dispute or controversy arising under or in connection with this
Agreement shall be settled exclusively by arbitration, conducted before an
arbitrator in New York, New York in accordance with the rules of the American
Arbitration Association then in effect. Judgment may be entered on the
arbitration award in any court having jurisdiction, provided, however, that the
Company shall be entitled to seek a restraining order or injunction in any court
of competent jurisdiction to prevent any continuation of any violation of the
provisions of Sections 6 or 7 of the Agreement and the Executive hereby consents
that such restraining order or injunction may be granted without requiring the
Company to post a bond. Only individuals who are (a) lawyers engaged full-time
in the practice of law; and (b) on the AAA register of arbitrators shall be
selected as an arbitrator. Within 20 days of the conclusion of the arbitration
hearing, the arbitrator shall prepare written findings of fact and conclusions
of law. It is mutually agreed that the written decision of the arbitrator shall
be valid, binding, final and non-appealable, provided however, that the parties
hereto agree that the arbitrator shall not be empowered to award punitive
damages against any party to such arbitration. The arbitrator shall require the
non-prevailing party to pay the arbitrator's full fees and expenses or, if in
the arbitrator's opinion there is no prevailing party, the arbitrator's fees and
expenses will be borne equally by the parties thereto. In the event action is
brought to enforce the provisions of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 18,
the non-prevailing parties shall be required to pay the reasonable attorney's
fees and expenses of the prevailing parties, except that if in the opinion of
the court or arbitrator deciding such action there is no prevailing party, each
party shall pay its own attorney's fees and expenses.

19.      ENFORCEMENT

         If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid or
unenforceable under present or future laws effective during the term of this
Agreement, such provision shall be fully severable; this Agreement shall be
construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision
had never comprised a portion of this Agreement; and the remaining provisions of
this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected
by the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance from this
Agreement. Furthermore, in lieu of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable
provision there shall be added automatically as part of this Agreement a
provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid or unenforceable
provision as may be possible and be legal, valid and enforceable.

20.      WITHHOLDING

         The Company shall be entitled to withhold from any amounts payable
under this

                                       14
