          9.1    Non-Waiver. No course of dealing between the parties or any
failure or delay on the part of either party in exercising any rights or
remedies hereunder shall operate as a waiver of any rights or remedies of either

exercise of any rights or remedies hereunder shall operate as a waiver or
preclude the exercise of any other rights or remedies hereunder.

          9.2    Indemnification.

          (a)    Seller. Seller hereby agrees to defend, indemnify and hold
harmless Buyer against any and all actions, suits, proceedings, claims, demands,
judgments, costs and expenses directly related to or arising from (i) the breach
of a representation or warranty by Seller herein or

<PAGE>

the documents delivered at Closing or (ii) any liabilities of Seller not assumed
by Buyer at Closing.

          (b)    Buyer. Buyer hereby agrees to defend, indemnify and hold
harmless Seller against any and all actions, suits, proceedings, claims,
demands, judgments, costs and expenses directly related to or arising from (i)
the breach of a representation or warranty by Seller herein or the documents
delivered at Closing or (ii) any of the Assumed Liabilities.

          (c)    Procedure. The indemnified party shall promptly notify the
indemnifying party in writing of any claim, demand, action or proceeding for
which indemnification will be sought under Sections 9.2(a) or 9.2(b), and, if
such claim, demand, action or proceeding is a third party claim, demand, action
or proceeding, the indemnifying party will have the right at its expense to
assume the defense thereof using counsel reasonably acceptable to the
indemnified party. The indemnified party shall have the right to participate, at
its own expense, with respect to any such third party claim, demand, action or
proceeding. In connection with any such third party claim, demand, action or
proceeding, Buyer and Seller shall cooperate with each other and provide each
other with access to relevant books and records in their possession related to
such claim. No such third party claim, demand, action or proceeding shall be
settled without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, which
consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. If a fmn written offer is made to
settle any such third party claim, demand, action or proceeding, which offer
does not involve any injunctive or non-monetary relief against the indemnified
party, and the indemnifying party proposes to accept such settlement and the
indemnified party refuses to consent to such settlement, then: (i) the
indemnifying party shall be excused from, and the indemnified party shall be
solely responsible for, all further defense of such third party claim, demand,
action or proceeding; and (ii) the maximum liability of the indemnifying party
relating to such third party claim, demand, action or proceeding shall be the
amount of the proposed settlement if the amount thereafter recovered from the
indenuiified party on such third party claim, demand, action or proceeding is
greater than the amount of the proposed settlement. In the event that Buyer or
Seller shall fail to make such commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate or
resolve any claim or liability, then notwithstanding anything else to the
contrary herein, the other party shall not be required to indemnify any person
for any Losses that could reasonably be expected to have been avoided if Buyer
or Seller, as the case may be, had made such efforts.

time be designated by any party in writing to the other parties):
