2.   FINANCING OF ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE.

     2.1. REQUEST FOR ADVANCES. During the Facility Period, Borrower may offer
     accounts receivable to Bank, if there is not an Event of Default. Borrower
     will deliver an Invoice Transmittal for each accounts receivable it offers.
     Bank may rely on information on or with the Invoice Transmittal.

     2.2. ACCEPTANCE OF ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE. Bank is not obligated to finance
     any accounts receivable. Bank may approve any Account Debtor's credit
     before buying any receivable. When Bank accepts a receivable, it will pay
     Borrower the Advance Rate times the face amount of the receivable (the
     "Advance"). Bank may, in its discretion, change the percentage of the
     Advance Rate. When Bank makes an Advance, the receivable becomes a
     "Financed Receivable." All representations and warranties in Section 6 must
     be true as of the date of the Invoice Transmittal and of the Advance and no
     Event of Default exists would occur as a result of the Advance. The
     aggregate amount of all Financed Receivables outstanding at any time may
     not exceed the Facility Amount.

3. COLLECTIONS, FINANCE CHARGES, REMITTANCES AND FEES. The Obligations shall be
subject to the following fees and Finance Charges. Fees and Finance Charges may,
in Bank's discretion, be charged as an Advance, and shall thereafter accrue fees
and Finance Charges as described below. Bank may, in its discretion, charge fee
and Finance Charges to Borrower's deposit account maintained with Bank.

     3.1. COLLECTIONS. Collections will be credited to the Financed Receivables
     Balance, but if there is an Event of Default, Bank may apply Collections to
     the Obligation in any order it chooses. If Bank receives a payment for both
     Financed Receivable and a non Financed Receivable, the funds will first be
     applied to the Financed Receivable and, if there is not an Event of
     Default, the excess will be remitted to the Borrower, subject to Section
     3.10.

     3.2. FINANCE CHARGES. In computing Finance Charges on the Obligations, all
     Collections received by Bank shall be deemed applied by Bank on account of
     the Obligations 3 Business Days after receipt of the Collections. Borrower
     will pay a finance charge (the "Finance Charge"), which is the greater of
     (i) the Applicable Rate times the number of days in the Reconciliation
     Period times the outstanding average daily Financed Receivable Balance for
     that Reconciliation Period or (ii) the Minimum Finance Charge. After an
     Event of Default, Obligations accrue interest at 5 percent above the
     Applicable Rate effective immediately before the Event of Default.

     3.3.  INTENTIONALLY OMITTED.

     3.4.  FACILITY FEE. A fully earned,  non-refundable  facility fee of
     $15,000.00 is due upon execution of this Agreement.


                                       3
<PAGE>


     3.5. COLLATERAL HANDLING FEE. On each Reconciliation Day, Borrower will pay
     to Bank a collateral handling fee, equal to .25% per month of the average
     daily Financed Receivable Balance outstanding during the applicable
     Reconciliation Period. Effective June 1, 2000 and thereafter, the
     Collateral Handling Fee shall be .375%. After an Event of Default, the
     Collateral Handling Fee will increase an additional .50% effective
     immediately before the Event of Default.

     3.6. INTENTIONALLY OMITTED.

     3.7. ACCOUNTING. After each Reconciliation Period, Bank will provide an
     accounting of the transactions for that Reconciliation Period, including
     the amount of all Financed Receivables, all Collections, Adjustments,
     Finance Charges, the Collateral Handling Fee and the Administrative Fee. If
     Borrower does not object to the accounting in writing within 30 days it is
     considered correct. All Finance Charges and other interest and fees
     calculated on the basis of a 360 day year and actual days elapsed.

     3.8. DEDUCTIONS. Bank may deduct fees, finance charges and other amounts
     due from any Advances made or Collections received by Bank.

     3.9.  INTENTIONALLY OMITTED.

     3.10. ACCOUNT COLLECTION SERVICES. All Borrowers' receivables are to be
     paid to the same address/or party and Borrower and Bank must agree on such
     address. If Bank collects all receivables and there is not an Event of
     Default or an event that with notice or lapse of time will be an Event of
     Default, within 3 days of receipt of those collections, Bank will give
     Borrower, the receivables collections it receives for receivables other
     than Financed Receivables and/or amount in excess of the amount for which
     Bank has made an Advance to Borrower, less any amount due to Bank, such as
     the Finance Charge, Administrative Fee, Collateral Handling Fee and
     expenses or otherwise. This Section does not impose any affirmative duty on
     Bank to do any act other than to turn over amounts. All receivables and
     collections are Collateral and if an Event of Default occurs, Bank need not
     remit collections of Collateral and may apply them to the Obligations.

4.  REPAYMENT OF OBLIGATIONS.

     4.1. REPAYMENT ON MATURITY. Borrower will repay each Advance on the
     earliest of: (a) payment of the Financed Receivable in respect which the
     Advance was made, (b) the Financed Receivable becomes an Ineligible
     Receivable, (c) when any Adjustment is made to the Financed Receivable (but
     only to the extent of the Adjustment if the Financed Receivable is not
     otherwise an Ineligible Receivable, or (d) the last day of the Facility
     Period (including any early termination). Each payment will also include
     all accrued Finance Charges on the Advance and all other amounts due
     hereunder.

     4.2. REPAYMENT ON EVENT OF DEFAULT. When there is an Event of Default,
     Borrower will, if Bank demands (or, in an Event of Default under Section
     9(B), immediately without notice or demand from Bank) repay all of the
     Advances. The demand may, at Bank's option, include the Advance for each
     Financed Receivable then outstanding and all accrued Finance Charges,
     Administrative Fees, attorneys and professional fees, court costs and
     expenses, and any other Obligations.

5.   POWER OF ATTORNEY. Borrower irrevocably appoints Bank and its successors
     and assigns it attorney-in-fact and authorizes Bank, regardless of whether
