          (a)  Base Payment.  At the Closing, Purchaser agrees to pay to
Stockholder [*] (the "Base Payment").  [*] of the Base Payment will be paid by
wire transfer of immediately available funds (the "Base Cash Payment").  In
addition, Purchaser will issue to Stockholder that number of unregistered shares
of Purchaser's common stock equal to [*] of the Base Payment divided by the
average closing price of the Purchaser's Common Stock for the ten trading days
ending four trading days prior to the Closing (the "Base Stock Payment");
provided, however, in no event shall Purchaser be obligated to issue more than

provided, further, that the Base Cash Payment shall not be increased as a result
of such limitation.

          (b)  Contingent Payment.
               ------------------

          (i)  If the Company Business (as defined below) generates Net Revenues

                    (A)  if Stockholder is terminated by Purchaser without Cause

Purchaser shall pay Stockholder [*] within ten (10) days following such
termination and Purchaser shall not have any further obligation with respect to
any Contingent Payment;

                    (B)  if Stockholder is terminated without Cause during the
last six (6) months of the Contingent Period, Purchaser shall pay Stockholder
within ten (10) days following such termination an amount calculated as follows
and Purchaser shall not have any further payment obligation with respect to any
Contingent Payment: (i) [*] if the Annualized Net Revenue (as defined below)

to or greater than [*], an amount equal to the greater of (x) the Contingent
Payment which would have been payable pursuant to Section 1(b)(i) based on the
Net Revenues as of the date of such termination or (y) [*]; and

                    (C)  if Stockholder dies, becomes disabled, resigns or is
terminated with Cause, the Contingent Payment shall be paid as set forth in
Section 1(b)(i) above, subject to Sections 8.2 and 10.2 hereof.

               (iii)  The Contingent Payment shall be made within ten (10) days
following the end of the Contingent Period (the "Second Closing") in such
combination of cash or unregistered shares of Purchaser's common stock as
Purchaser may elect in its sole discretion (such shares of Purchaser common
stock, if any, together with the Base Stock Payment shares shall be referred to
collectively as the "Purchaser Stock").  The number of unregistered shares of
Purchaser's common stock issued in respect of the stock portion of the
Contingent Payment, if any, shall be calculated on the basis of the average
closing price of Purchaser's Common Stock for the ten trading days ending three
days prior to the Second Closing.

                    (A)  "Annualized Net Revenues" shall mean the aggregate Net

felony entered by a trial court regardless of whether the Stockholder appeals

and value added taxes, license fees, shipping and shipping insurance costs
incurred by Purchaser in connection with such revenues.

               (c)  Bonus Payment to Company Employees.  At the Closing,
Purchaser shall pay to each employee of the Company who will remain an employee
of the Company following the Closing a bonus payment (collectively, the
"Bonuses") for each such employee in the amounts set forth on Schedule 1(c);
provided, however, the Bonus and any Contingent Bonus shall be conditioned on
such employee executing Purchaser's standard form of Confidential Information
and Inventions Assignment Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 7.3(h). Further,
Purchaser shall pay to each employee of Company who remains an employee of the
Company or Purchaser at the expiration of the Contingent Period, an additional
bonus payment (collectively, the "Contingent Bonuses") in amounts for each such
employee to be mutually determined by Purchaser and Stockholder; provided,
however, that the aggregate amount of the Contingent Bonuses shall not exceed
the sum of (i) [*] if the Net Revenues are at least [*]; plus (ii) [*] for every
dollar Net Revenues exceed [*] but are less than or equal to [*]; provided,
further, in no event shall the aggregate amount of the Contingent Bonuses exceed
[*]. The Contingent Bonuses may be paid in cash or unregistered shares of
Purchaser's Common Stock as Purchaser shall elect in its sole discretion. If any
portion of the Contingent Bonuses are paid in shares of Purchaser Common Stock,
(i) the number of shares of Common Stock to be issued shall be based on the

information being referred to as the "Net Tangible Assets Information").
Purchaser, Stockholder and Company each acknowledge that Purchaser relied on the
Net Tangible Assets Information in establishing the total consideration
Purchaser agreed to pay in connection with the Purchase and any inaccuracy in
the Net Tangible Assets Information would have led to a reduction in the total
consideration Purchaser agreed to pay to the extent such inaccuracy caused the
Company's net tangible assets at Closing to be less than the Company's net
tangible assets as of March 31, 2000, in each case as determined in accordance
with GAAP.

applications (in both source code and object code form), and tangible or
intangible proprietary information or material ("Intellectual Property") that
are used or proposed to be used in the business of the Company as currently
conducted or as proposed to be conducted by the Company except where the failure
to have such rights would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Material
Adverse Effect on the Company.

               (b)  Section 4.13 of the Company Disclosure Schedule lists (i)
all patents and patent applications and all registered and unregistered
trademarks, trade names and service marks, registered and unregistered
copyrights, and maskworks, included in the Intellectual Property, including the
jurisdictions in which each such Intellectual Property right has been issued or
registered or in which any application for such issuance and registration has
been filed, (ii) all licenses, sublicenses and other agreements as to which the

<PAGE>

which the Company is authorized to use any third party patents, trademarks or
copyrights, including software ("Third Party Intellectual Property Rights")
which are incorporated in, are, or form a part of any product or service offered
by the Company. The Company is not in violation of any license, sublicense or
agreement described in Section 4.13 of the Company Disclosure Schedule, except
for such violations as will not have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company.
The execution and delivery of this Agreement by the Company and the consummation
of the transactions contemplated hereby, will neither cause the Company to be in
violation or default under any such license, sublicense or agreement, nor
entitle any other party to any such license, sublicense or agreement to
terminate or modify such license, sublicense or agreement. Except as set forth
in Section 4.13 of the Company Disclosure Schedule, the Company is the sole and
exclusive owner or licensee of, with all right, title and interest in and to
(free and clear of any liens), the Intellectual Property, and has sole and
exclusive rights (and is not contractually obligated to pay any compensation to
any third party in respect thereof) to the use thereof or the material covered
thereby in connection with the services or products in respect of which
Intellectual Property is being used.

               (c)  To Company's and Stockholder's knowledge, there is no
unauthorized use, disclosure, infringement or misappropriation of any
Intellectual Property rights of the Company, any trade secret material to the
Company or any Intellectual Property right of any third party to the extent
licensed by or through the Company, by any third party, including any employee
or former employee of the Company. Except as set forth on Section 4.13(c) of the
Company Disclosure Schedule, the Company has not entered into any agreement to
indemnify any other person against any charge of infringement of any
Intellectual Property, other than indemnification provisions contained in
purchase orders arising in the ordinary course of business.

               (d)  The Company is not nor will it be as a result of the
execution and delivery of this Agreement or the performance of its obligations
under this Agreement, in breach of any license, sublicense or other agreement
relating to the Intellectual Property or Third Party Intellectual Property
Rights.

               (e)  All patents, registered trademarks, registered service marks
and copyrights held by the Company are valid and existing and, to the Company's
and Stockholder's knowledge, there is no assertion or claim (or basis therefor)
challenging the validity of any Intellectual Property of the Company. The
Company has not been sued in any suit, action or proceeding which involves a
claim of infringement of any patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights or
violation of any trade secret or other proprietary right of any third party.
Neither the conduct of the business of the Company as currently conducted or
contemplated nor the manufacture, sale, licensing or use of any of the products
of the Company as now manufactured, sold or licensed or used, infringes on or
will infringe or conflict with, in any way, any license, trademark, trademark
right, trade name, trade name right, patent, patent right, industrial model,
invention, service mark or copyright of any third party, except where such
infringement or conflict would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a
Material Adverse Effect on the Company. The Company has not brought any action,
suit or proceeding for infringement of Intellectual Property or breach of any
license or agreement involving Intellectual Property against any third party.
There are no pending, or to the Company's and Stockholder's knowledge,
threatened interference, re-examinations, oppositions or nullities involving any

                                      -13-
<PAGE>

patents, patent rights or applications therefor of the Company, except such as
may have been commenced by the Company. There is no breach or violation of or,
to the Company's and Stockholder's knowledge, threatened or actual loss of
rights under any license agreement to which the Company is a party.

               (f)  Except as set forth on Section 4.13(f) of the Company
Disclosure Schedule, the Company has secured valid written assignments from all
consultants and employees who contributed to the creation or development of
Intellectual Property of the rights to such contributions that the Company does
not already own by operation of law, except where the failure to obtain such
assignments would not have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company.

               (g)  Except as set forth on Section 4.13(g) of the Company
Disclosure Schedule, the Company has taken all necessary and appropriate steps
that are commercially reasonable to protect and preserve the confidentiality of
all Intellectual Property not otherwise protected by patents, patent
applications or copyright ("Confidential Information"), except where the failure
to take such steps would not have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company. The
Company has a policy requiring each employee, consultant and independent
contractor to execute proprietary information and confidentiality agreements
substantially in the Company's standard forms and all current and former
employees, consultants and independent contractors of the Company have executed
such an agreement. All use, disclosure or appropriation of Confidential
Information owned by the Company by or to a third party has been pursuant to the
terms of a written agreement between the Company and such third party, except
where such use, disclosure or appropriation would not have a Material Adverse
Effect on the Company.

Section 4999 of the Code. The Company has not agreed to, nor is it required to
make, any adjustment under Code Section 481(a) by reason of, a change in
accounting method, and the Company will not otherwise have any income reportable

Date. The Company is not, nor has it been, a "reporting corporation" subject to

          4.16  Employee Benefit Plans.
                ----------------------

               (a)  Section 4.16 of the Company Disclosure Schedule lists, with
respect to Company, each Subsidiary of Company and any trade or business
(whether or not incorporated) which is treated as a single employer with Company
(an "ERISA Affiliate") within the meaning of Section 414(b), (c), (m) or (o) of
the Code, (i) all employee benefit plans (as defined in Section 3(3) of the
Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended ("ERISA")), (ii)
each loan to a non-officer employee in excess of $10,000, loans to officers and
directors and any stock option, stock purchase, phantom stock, stock
appreciation right, supplemental retirement, severance, sabbatical, medical,
dental, vision care, disability, employee relocation, cafeteria benefit (Code
Section 125) or dependent care (Code Section 129), life insurance or accident
insurance plans, programs or arrangements, (iii) all contracts and agreements
relating to employment that provide for annual compensation in excess of
$100,000 and all severance agreements, with any of the directors, officers or
employees of Company or its Subsidiaries (other than, in each case, any such
contract or agreement that is terminable by the Company or its Subsidiary at
will or without penalty or other adverse consequence), (iv) all bonus, pension,
profit sharing, savings, deferred compensation or incentive plans, programs or
arrangements, (v) other fringe or employee benefit plans, programs or
arrangements that apply to senior management of Company or any Subsidiary and
that do not generally apply to all employees, and (vi) any current or former

greater than $10,000 remain for the benefit of, or relating to, any present or
former employee, consultant or director of Company or any Subsidiary (together,
the "Company Employee Plans").

               (b)  Company has furnished to Purchaser a copy of each of the
Company Employee Plans and related plan documents (including trust documents,
insurance policies or contracts, employee booklets, summary plan descriptions
and other authorizing documents, and, to the extent still in its possession, any
material employee communications relating thereto) and has, with respect to each
Company Employee Plan which is subject to ERISA reporting requirements, provided
copies of the Form 5500 reports filed for the last three plan years. Any Company
Employee Plan intended to be qualified under Section 401(a) of the Code has
either obtained from the Internal Revenue Service an opinion letter or favorable
determination letter as to its initial qualified status under the Code,
including all amendments to the Code effected by the Tax Reform Act of 1986 and
subsequent legislation; may rely on an opinion letter issued to a prototype plan
sponsor with respect to a standardized plan adopted by Company in accordance
with the requirements for such reliance; or has applied to the Internal Revenue
Service for such a determination letter (or has time remaining to apply for such
a determination letter) prior to the expiration of the requisite period under
applicable Treasury Regulations or Internal Revenue

                                      -18-
<PAGE>

Service pronouncements in which to apply for such determination letter and to
make any amendments necessary to obtain a favorable determination with respect
to all periods since the date of adoption of such Company Employee Plan. Company
has also furnished Purchaser with the most recent Internal Revenue Service
determination letter issued with respect to each such Company Employee Plan, and
nothing has occurred since the issuance of each such letter which could
reasonably be expected to cause the loss of the tax-qualified status of any
Company Employee Plan subject to Code Section 401(a).

               (c)  Except as set forth in Section 4.16(c) of the Company
Disclosure Schedule, (i) none of the Company Employee Plans promises or provides
retiree medical or other retiree welfare or life insurance benefits to any
person; (ii) to the Company's knowledge, there has been no "prohibited
transaction," as such term is defined in Section 406 of ERISA and Section 4975
of the Code, and not exempt under Section 408 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the
Code, with respect to any Company Employee Plan, which could reasonably be
expected to have, in the aggregate, a Material Adverse Effect; (iii) each
Company Employee Plan has been administered in accordance with its terms and in
compliance with the requirements prescribed by any and all statutes, rules and
regulations (including ERISA and the Code), except as would not have, in the
aggregate, a Material Adverse Effect, and Company and each Subsidiary or ERISA
Affiliate have performed all obligations required to be performed by them under,
are not in any material respect in default under or violation of, and have no
knowledge of any material default or violation by any other party to, any of the
Company Employee Plans; (iv) neither Company nor any Subsidiary or ERISA
Affiliate is subject to any liability or penalty under Sections 4976 through
4980D of the Code or Title I of ERISA with respect to any of the Company
Employee Plans; (v) all material contributions required to be made by Company or
any Subsidiary or ERISA Affiliate to any Company Employee Plan have been made on
or before their due dates and a reasonable amount has been accrued for
contributions to each Company Employee Plan for the current plan years; (vi)
with respect to each Company Employee Plan, no "reportable event" within the
meaning of Section 4043 of ERISA (excluding any such event for which the thirty
(30) day notice requirement has been waived under the regulations to Section
4043 of ERISA) nor any event described in Section 4062, 4063 or 4041 or ERISA
has occurred; (vii) no Company Employee Plan is covered by, and neither Company
nor any Subsidiary or ERISA Affiliate has incurred or expects to incur any
direct or indirect liability under, arising out of or by operation of Title IV
of ERISA in connection with the termination of, or an employee's withdrawal
from, any Company Employee Plan or other retirement plan or arrangement, and no
fact or event exists that could give rise to any such liability, or under
Section 412 of the Code; and (viii) no compensation paid or payable to any
employee of Company or any Subsidiary has been, or will be, non-deductible by
reason of application of Section 162(m) or 280G of the Code. With respect to
each Company Employee Plan subject to ERISA as either an employee pension plan
within the meaning of Section 3(2) of ERISA or an employee welfare benefit plan
within the meaning of Section 3(1) of ERISA, Company has prepared in good faith
and timely filed all requisite governmental reports (which were true and correct
as of the date filed) and has properly and timely filed and distributed or
posted all notices and reports to employees required to be filed, distributed or
posted with respect to each such Company Employee Plan. No suit, administrative
proceeding, action or other litigation has been brought, or to the best
knowledge of Company is threatened, against or with respect to any such Company
Employee Plan, including any audit or inquiry by the IRS or United States
Department of Labor. Neither Company nor any Subsidiary or other ERISA Affiliate
is a party to, or has made any contribution

                                      -19-

to or otherwise incurred any obligation under, any "multiemployer plan" as
defined in Section 3(37) of ERISA.

               (d)  With respect to each Company Employee Plan, Company and each

care continuation and notice provisions of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget
Reconciliation Act of 1985 ("COBRA") and the regulations thereunder or any
similar applicable state law, (ii) the applicable requirements of the Health
Insurance Portability Amendments Act ("HIPAA") and the regulations thereunder
and (iii) the applicable requirements of the Family Medical Leave Act of 1993
and the regulations thereunder or any similar applicable state law, except to
the extent that such failure to comply would not, in the aggregate, have a
Material Adverse Effect.

               (e)  There has been no amendment to, written interpretation or
announcement (whether or not written) by Company, any Subsidiary or other ERISA
Affiliate relating to, or change in participation or coverage under, any Company
Employee Plan which would materially increase the expense of maintaining such
Plan above the level of expense incurred with respect to that Plan for the most
recent fiscal year included in Company's financial statements.

          4.17  Certain Agreements Affected by this Agreement.  Except as
                ---------------------------------------------
provided for in Section 1(c) of this Agreement, neither the execution and

hereby will (i) result in any payment (including, without limitation, severance,
unemployment compensation, golden parachute, bonus or otherwise) becoming due to
any director or employee of Company or any of its Subsidiaries, (ii) materially
increase any benefits otherwise payable by Company, or (iii) result in the
acceleration of the time of payment or vesting of any such benefits except as

any of its Subsidiaries under any workers compensation plan or policy or for

material obligations under COBRA or any similar state law with respect to any
former employees or qualifying beneficiaries thereunder.  There are no
controversies pending or, to the knowledge of Company or any of its
Subsidiaries, threatened, between Company or any of its Subsidiaries and any of
their respective employees or former employees, which controversies have or
could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on Company.
Neither Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is a party to any collective
bargaining agreement or other labor unions contract nor does Company or any of
its Subsidiaries know of any activities or proceedings of any labor union or

-------
Closing shall be subject to the satisfaction at or prior to the Second Closing
of each of the following conditions, any of which may be waived, in writing, by
Purchaser:

               (a)  Representations, Warranties and Covenants.  (i) Each of the
                    -----------------------------------------
representations and warranties of the Stockholder set forth in Sections 5.4,
5.5, 5.6, 5.7 and 5.8 in this Agreement shall be true in all respects, on and as
of the Second Closing as though such representation or warranty had been made on
and as of the Second Closing.

               (b)  Certificate of the Stockholder.  Purchaser shall have been
                    ------------------------------
provided with a certificate executed by Stockholder to the effect that, as of

                                   SECTION 8

                          ESCROW AND INDEMNIFICATION

          8.1  Escrow Fund.  As soon as practicable after the Closing Date, [*]
               -----------
shares of the Base Stock Payment (the "Initial Escrow Shares" and, together with
the New Shares (as defined below), the "Escrow Shares") and [*] of the Base Cash
Payment to be paid to Stockholder (the "Escrow Cash") shall, without any act of
any Stockholder, be deposited with HSBC Bank USA (the "Escrow Agent"), such
deposit to constitute the escrow fund (the "Escrow Fund") and to be governed by
the terms set forth herein and in the Escrow Agreement.  If any Damages (as
defined below) arise, the Escrow Fund shall be available to compensate the
Indemnified Persons (defined below) pursuant to the indemnification obligations
of the Stockholder pursuant to Section 8.2 and in accordance with the Escrow
Agreement; provided, however, resort to the Escrow Fund shall not be the
exclusive recourse to compensate the Indemnified Persons for any Damages.

          8.2  Stockholder Indemnification.  Subject to the limitations set
               ---------------------------
forth in this Section 8, from and after the Closing Date, the Stockholder shall
protect, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Purchaser and its affiliates,
officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents (each a "Purchaser
Indemnified Person" and collectively "Purchaser Indemnified Persons") from and
against any and all losses, costs, damages, liabilities, fees (including without
limitation reasonable attorneys' fees and other reasonable fees incurred in the
investigation and defense) and expenses (collectively, the "Damages"), that any
of the Purchaser Indemnified Persons incurs by reason of or in connection with
(i) any claim, demand, action or cause of action (collectively, a "Claim")
alleging misrepresentation, breach of, or default in connection with, any of the
representations, warranties, covenants or agreements of the Company or
Stockholder contained in this Agreement, including any exhibits or schedules
attached hereto which becomes known to Purchaser during the Escrow Period and
(ii) any Claim resulting from Stockholder's actions or inactions which serve as
a basis for his termination for Cause but only with respect to the portions of
such Claim which result in actual, out-of-pocket expense to Purchaser. Subject
to the right of Stockholder to dispute any Claims as provided herein or in the
Escrow Agreement, Purchaser shall be entitled to deduct from the amount due to
Stockholder as a result of the Contingent Payment any Damages arising from
Claims resulting from the

request.

<PAGE>

foregoing clauses (i) and (ii) which exceed the amount of the Escrow Fund;
provided, however, Purchaser shall deposit such amount in an interest-bearing
trust account during the pendency of the resolution of any dispute as to any
such Claims. Damages in each case shall be net of the amount of any insurance
proceeds actually recovered by Purchaser.

          8.3  Damages Threshold.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser may
               -----------------
not receive any amount of the Escrow Shares or Escrow Cash from the Escrow Fund
unless and until a certificate signed by an officer of Purchaser (an "Officer's
Certificate") identifying Damages in the aggregate amount in excess of $25,000
has been delivered to the Escrow Agent and such amount is determined pursuant to
this Section 8 to be payable, in which case Purchaser shall receive Escrow
Shares and Escrow Cash equal in value to the full amount of such Damages without
deduction. In determining the amount of any Damages attributable to a breach
(but not whether a breach has occurred), any materiality standard contained in a
representation, warranty or covenant of Purchaser shall be disregarded.

          8.4  Escrow Period.  Subject to the following requirements, the Escrow
               -------------
Fund shall remain in existence until the 13 month anniversary of Closing (the
"Escrow Termination Date" and such period of time being referred to as the
"Escrow Period").  Upon the expiration of the Escrow Period, the Escrow Fund
shall terminate with respect to all Escrow Cash and Escrow Shares; provided,
however, that the amount of Escrow Cash and the number of Escrow Shares which,
as provided in the Escrow Agreement, are necessary to satisfy any unsatisfied
claims specified in any Officer's Certificate delivered to the Escrow Agent
prior to the expiration of such Escrow Period with respect to facts and
circumstances existing on or prior to the Escrow Termination Date shall remain
in the Escrow Fund (and the Escrow Fund shall remain in existence) until such
claims have been resolved.  As soon as all such claims have been resolved, the
Escrow Agent shall deliver to the Stockholder all Escrow Cash, Escrow Shares and
other property remaining in the Escrow Fund and not required to satisfy such
claims.

          8.5  Distributions; Voting.
               ---------------------

               (a)  Any shares of Purchaser Common Stock issued or distributed
by Purchaser upon any stock split, stock dividend or recapitalization of
Purchaser ("New Shares") in respect of the Escrow Shares that have not been
released from the Escrow Fund shall be added to the Escrow Fund and become a
part thereof. When and if dividends in the form of cash or property on Escrow
Shares in the Escrow Fund shall be declared and paid, they shall be immediately
distributed to the beneficial owners of the Escrow Shares. The beneficial owners
of the Escrow Shares shall pay any taxes on such dividends.

               (b)  Stockholder shall have voting rights with respect to the
Escrow Shares (and on any voting securities added to the Escrow Fund in respect
of such Escrow Shares) so long as such Escrow Shares or other voting securities
are held in the Escrow Fund. As the record holder of such shares, the Escrow
Agent shall vote such shares in accordance with the instructions of Stockholder
and shall promptly deliver copies of all proxy solicitation materials to
Stockholder. Purchaser shall show the Purchaser Stock contributed to the Escrow
Fund as issued and outstanding on its balance sheet.

          8.6  Purchaser Indemnification.  Subject to the limitations set forth
               -------------------------
in this Section 8, from and after the Closing Date, Purchaser shall protect,
defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Stockholder from and against any Damages
that Stockholder incurs by reason of or in connection with any Claim alleging
misrepresentation, breach of, or default in connection with, any of the
representations, warranties, covenants or agreements of the Purchaser contained
in this Agreement, including any exhibits or schedules attached hereto which
becomes known to Stockholder during the Escrow Period; provided however, that no
such compensation shall be payable to the Stockholder unless and until the
amount of all Damages to the Stockholder exceeds $25,000 in the aggregate,
whereupon compensation shall be payable for all such Damages without deduction.
Damages in each case shall be net of the amount of any insurance proceeds
actually recovered by Stockholder.

          8.7  Method of Asserting Claims.  All claims for indemnification by a
               --------------------------
Purchaser Indemnified Person pursuant to this Section 8 shall be made in
accordance with the provisions of this Section 8 and the provisions of the
Escrow Agreement.

          8.8  Defense of Third Party Claims.  In the event of the assertion or
               -----------------------------
commencement by any individual, entity or governmental body (each, a "Person")
of any claim or action, suit, litigation, arbitration proceeding (including any
civil, criminal, administrative, investigative or appellate proceeding),
hearing, inquiry, audit, examination or investigation commenced, brought,
conducted or heard by or before, or otherwise involving any court or other
governmental body or any arbitrator or arbitration panel (each a "Legal
Proceeding") (whether against the Company, against Purchaser, Stockholder or
against any other Person) with respect to which the Stockholder or Purchaser may
become obligated to hold harmless, indemnify, compensate or reimburse a
Purchaser Indemnified Person or Stockholder pursuant to this Section 8, as the
case may be, the procedure set forth below shall be followed.

               (a)  With respect to the claims made by third parties, if an
indemnified party is threatened with any claim, or any such claim is presented
to or any action or proceeding commenced, that may give rise to the right of
indemnification hereunder, such indemnified party, as the case may be (the
"Indemnitee"), will give written notice thereof to the party or parties bearing
the indemnification obligation (the "Indemnifying Party); provided, however,
that any failure on the part of the Indemnitee to so notify the Indemnifying
Party shall not limit any of the obligations of the Indemnifying Party under
this Section 8, except that, to the extent such failure to promptly notify the
Indemnifying Party increases the Damages, then such Damages shall be reduced by
the amount of the Damages that would have been avoided, if any, had the
Indemnifying Party been promptly notified.

               (b)  The Indemnitee shall have the right to be represented by
counsel of its choice and to defend or otherwise control the handling of any
claim, or Legal Proceeding for which indemnity is sought. Notwithstanding the
foregoing but subject to the limitations provided below, the Indemnifying Party
may elect (by written notice to the Indemnitee under Section 11.2) to assume the
defense of or otherwise control the handling of such claim or Legal Proceeding
involving solely claims for monetary damages; provided, however, that the
Company or Stockholder, as the Indemnifying Party, shall have no right to assume
the defense or otherwise control the handling of any such claim or Legal
Proceeding against a Purchaser Indemnified Person (i) if the amount in question
(when aggregated with all other outstanding or unreimbursed

                                      -36-
<PAGE>

paid claims, if any) exceeds two times (2x) the Escrow Fund (valued as of the
date hereof) or (ii) if such claim or Legal Proceeding relates to (A) the
intellectual property rights of Purchaser or Company, or (B) disputes with
customers of Purchaser or the Company. If the Indemnifying Party and the
Indemnitee agree upon mutually satisfactory counsel to assume the defense, the
Indemnifying Party shall assume the obligation to pay such counsel's fees and
expenses and shall no longer assume the obligation to pay the Indemnitee's
attorneys' fees and expenses.

               (c)  The party or parties which control the defense of any such
claim or Legal Proceeding:

                    (i)  shall proceed to defend such claim or Legal Proceeding
in a diligent manner with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the other party,

                    (ii)  each party shall make available to the defending party
any non-privileged documents and materials in its possession that may be
necessary to the defense of such claim or Legal Proceeding except for documents
or materials which are sealed by a court order or are subject to a nondisclosure
agreement prohibiting such disclosure,

                    (iii)  the defending party shall keep the Indemnitee or the
Indemnifying Party, as applicable, informed of all material developments and
events relating to such claim or Legal Proceeding;

                    (iv)  the other parties shall have the right to participate
in the defense of such claim or Legal Proceeding at their sole cost and expense;
and

                    (v)  the defending party shall not settle, adjust or
compromise such claim or Legal Proceeding without the prior written consent of
the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed,
provided that where the Indemnifying Party is controlling the defense such
settlement (A) includes as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the
plaintiff or claimant to the Indemnitee of a release from all liability in
respect of such claim or litigation, (B) provides that the Indemnitee does not
admit any guilt or fault with respect to the subject matter of such claim or
litigation, and (C) does not involve injunctive or other equitable relief.

          8.9  No Contribution.  The Stockholder acknowledges and agrees that he
               ---------------
shall not have and shall not exercise or assert (or attempt to exercise or
assert), any right of contribution, right of indemnity or other right or remedy
by virtue of having been an officer or director of the Company against a
Purchaser Indemnified Person or the Company, in each case as an Indemnified
Party, in connection with any indemnification obligation to which he may become
subject under or in connection with this Agreement.

          8.10  Exclusive Remedy; Limitations.
                -----------------------------

               (a)  The sole remedy of Purchaser for any and all claims of the
nature described in Section 8.2 shall be the indemnity set forth in Section 8.2,
subject to the other terms and conditions of this Section 8, and the maximum
liability of Stockholder hereunder shall be the sum of (i) [*] and (ii) fifty
percent of the total amount paid or due to be payable by Purchaser to
Stockholder pursuant to Section 1(b) hereof (such sum being referred to as the
"Liability Limit");

[*] Certain Information in this Exhibit has been omitted and filed separately
with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to a confidential treatment
request.
                                      -37-
<PAGE>

provided, however, that nothing herein shall limit Purchaser's right to recover
Damages, or the amount of such Damages so recovered, from Stockholder in the
event of: (i) any breach of representation or warranty set forth in Sections 4.3
or 4.4, and (ii) any fraud by Stockholder.

               (b)  The sole remedy of Stockholder for any and all claims of the
nature described in Section 8.6 shall be the indemnity set forth in Section 8.6,
subject to the other terms and conditions of this Section 8, and the maximum
liability of Purchaser hereunder shall be the Liability Limit; provided,
however, that nothing herein shall limit Stockholder's right to recover Damages
from Purchaser in the event of any fraud by any officer, director, agent or
representative of Purchaser; and provided, further, that nothing herein shall
limit Stockholder's right to the Contingent Payment except for Purchaser's right
to offset with respect thereto as set forth herein.

                                   SECTION 9

                   COVENANTS OF STOCKHOLDER AND THE COMPANY

          9.1  Public Announcements.  All parties hereto agree that neither
               --------------------
party will make any press release or publication with respect to the existence
of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby without the prior
written consent of the other parties, which consent shall not be unreasonably
withheld or delayed, except as may be required by law.

          9.2  Cooperation.  Each party hereto will fully cooperate with the
               -----------
other parties, their counsel and accountants in connection with any steps
required to be taken as part of its obligations under this Agreement. Each party
will use reasonable efforts to cause all conditions to this Agreement to be
satisfied as promptly as possible and to obtain all consents and approvals
necessary for the due and punctual performance of this Agreement and for the
satisfaction of the conditions hereof. No party will undertake any course of
action inconsistent with this Agreement or which would make any representations,
warranties or agreements made by such party in this Agreement untrue or any
conditions precedent to this Agreement unable to be satisfied at or prior to the
Closing.

          9.3  Further Acts.  After the Closing Date, each party hereto, at the
               ------------
request of and without any further cost or expense to the other parties will
take any further actions necessary or desirable to carry out the purposes of
this Agreement and to vest in Purchaser full title to all properties, assets,
Company Capital Stock and rights of the Company.  In addition, without in any
way limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company and, to the extent
required, the Stockholder hereby agrees to take any and all further actions
necessary or desirable to carry out the assignment to Purchaser of all
Intellectual Property.

                                  SECTION 10

                            COVENANTS OF PURCHASER

          10.1  Blue Sky Laws.  Purchaser shall take such steps as may be
                -------------
necessary to comply with the securities and Blue Sky Laws of all jurisdictions
which are applicable to the issuance of the Purchaser Stock pursuant hereto.

<PAGE>

          10.2  Post-Closing Operation of Company.  Following the Closing,
                ---------------------------------
Purchaser hereby covenants and agrees that the Company Business will be operated
either as a subsidiary or a business unit of Purchaser.  Subject to the terms of
the Employment Letter, Stockholder shall be appointed general manager (or such
other title as Purchaser and Stockholder shall mutually agree) of the Company
Business, reporting directly to Purchaser's President, in which capacity he
shall be responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the Company
Business.  During the Contingent Period, in addition to permitting the Company
to retain and use any positive cash flow which it generates, Purchaser shall
provide operating capital to the Company Business at a level consistent with the
operating capital and borrowings of the Company during the twelve (12) months
preceding the Closing plus such amounts as may be needed to fund any increased
accounts receivable and any compensation and other payments to be made to
Stockholder or Brown Bear Realty (in excess of those paid to Stockholder or
Brown Bear Realty in the twelve (12) months prior to Closing) pursuant to this
Agreement, the Lease Agreement and the Employment Letter (to the extent that the
compensation set forth therein exceeds that paid to Stockholder in the twelve
(12) months prior to Closing).  Purchaser understands that the Company's ability
to generate Net Revenues in an amount which would entitle Stockholder to the
Contingent Payment is an important condition to Stockholder, and it agrees,
subject to the foregoing quantification of Purchaser's working capital
commitment and its fiduciary obligations to its stockholders, to act in good
faith to support the Stockholder in his efforts to grow the Company Business
during the Contingent Period.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser reserves
the right to reduce the funding of the Company Business or curtail its
operations during or after the Contingent Period in its reasonable commercial
discretion (excluding, in exercising such discretion, Purchaser's obligation to
pay the Contingent Payment) if Stockholder is no longer employed by the Company
Business for any reason whatsoever, including his death, disability, voluntary
resignation or termination with or without Cause.

          10.3  Guarantees.  Purchaser agrees to guarantee the obligations of
                ----------
the Company under the Employment Letter.

          10.4  Museum Covenant.
                ---------------

               (a)  Set forth on Schedule 10.4 hereto is a listing of
historically significant audio and video equipment that the Company currently
owns (the "Collection"). The Purchaser hereby covenants that from and after the
Closing Date it will: (i) keep the Collection intact and secure, (ii) use
commercially reasonable efforts to include the Collection in its standard
property and casualty insurance coverage, and (iii) not sell or otherwise
dispose of any of the Collection, in whole or in part without the consent of
Stockholder. Stockholder hereby covenants and agrees to provide advice to the
Company and Purchaser on affairs relating to the Collection; provided, however,
that except to the extent set forth above, Purchaser and Company shall have no
obligation with respect to such advice.

               (b)  As soon as practicable after the Closing, upon the request
of Stockholder, Purchaser shall cause the Company to convey title to the
Collection to a not-for-profit corporation formed or designated by the
Stockholder for the express purpose of preserving the Collection (the
"Conveyance"). Purchaser shall not bear any costs and expenses associated with
the Conveyance and the on-going operations of such entity and Stockholder shall
indemnify and hold harmless Purchaser for any such costs or expenses incurred by
Purchaser. As a condition to

                                      -39-
<PAGE>

the Conveyance, Purchaser shall receive a perpetual, royalty free, fully-paid
right and license to use items of the Collection from time to time that are
necessary or useful in the operation of the Business as determined by Purchaser
in its sole commercially reasonable discretion. Notwithstanding the foregoing
section (a) and (b), at any time prior to the Conveyance, Purchaser may request
in writing that the Stockholder effect the Conveyance (the "Conveyance Request")
and if within six months of Stockholder's receipt of the Conveyance Request
Stockholder has not effected the Conveyance, Purchaser shall have no further
obligations with respect to the Collection and shall be free to retain or
dispose of the Collection in its sole discretion.

                                  SECTION 11

                                 MISCELLANEOUS

Washington, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law.

          11.5  Entire Agreement; Nonassignability; Parties in Interest.  This
                -------------------------------------------------------
Agreement and the documents referred to herein are the product of all of the
parties hereto, and constitutes the entire agreement between such parties
pertaining to the subject matter hereof and thereof, and merge all prior
negotiations and drafts of the parties with regard to the transactions
contemplated herein and therein.  Any and all other written or oral agreements
existing between the parties hereto regarding such transactions: (a) are
expressly canceled except for the Confidentiality Agreement, which shall
continue in full force and effect, and shall survive any termination of this
Agreement or the Closing, in accordance with its terms; (b) are not intended to
confer upon any other person any rights or remedies hereunder, and (c) shall not
be assigned by operation of law or otherwise except as otherwise specifically
provided.

          11.6  Severability.  If one or more provisions of this Agreement are
                ------------
held to be unenforceable under applicable law, the parties agree to renegotiate
such provision in good faith, in order to maintain the economic position enjoyed
by each party as close as possible to that under the provision rendered
unenforceable. If the parties cannot reach a mutually agreeable and enforceable
replacement for such provision, then (i) such provision shall be excluded from
this Agreement, (ii) the balance of the Agreement shall be interpreted as if
such provision were so excluded and (iii) the balance of the Agreement shall be
enforceable in accordance with its terms.

          11.7  Remedies Cumulative.  Except as otherwise provided herein, any
                -------------------
and all remedies herein expressly conferred upon a party will be deemed
cumulative with and not exclusive of any other remedy conferred hereby, or by
law or equity upon such party, and the exercise by a party of any one remedy
will not preclude the exercise of any other remedy.

          11.8  Rules of Construction.  The parties hereto agree that they have
                ---------------------
been represented by counsel during the negotiation, preparation and execution of
this Agreement and, therefore, waive the application of any law, regulation,
holding or rule of construction providing that ambiguities in an agreement or
other document will be construed against the party drafting such agreement or
document.

          11.9  Waiver of Restrictions.  The Company hereby consents to the
                ----------------------
transfers of Stock that are the subject of this Agreement and waives any
restrictions on transfer applicable to such Stock with respect to the transfers
contemplated by this Agreement.

          11.10  Amendments and Waivers.  Any term of this Agreement may be
                 ----------------------
amended or waived only with the written consent of the parties or their
respective successors and assigns. Any amendment or waiver effected in
accordance with this Section 11.10 shall be binding upon the parties and their
respective successors and assigns.

          11.11  Expenses.  Each party shall bear its own expenses in connection
                 --------
with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby; provided, however,
that Purchaser shall at Closing pay $75,000 of the reasonable expenses of the
Company and Stockholder incurred in connection with the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement. Stockholder shall be responsible for all such
expenses of the Company and the Stockholder in excess of $75,000 and Stockholder
shall bear sole responsibility for the payment of any brokerage or finder's fee
payable by the Company or Stockholder and Stockholder shall indemnify and hold
harmless the Purchaser therefor, to the extent not already accounted for in
Section 2.2(b).

          11.12  Arbitration.  Any controversy or dispute arising out of or
                 -----------
relating to this Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be resolved by
arbitration conducted in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the
American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and judgment upon the award rendered by
the arbitral tribunal may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
The arbitration tribunal shall consist of a single arbitrator mutually agreed by
the parties, or in the absence of such agreement within thirty (30) calendar
days from the first referral of the dispute to the AAA, designated by the AAA.
The place of arbitration shall be Chicago, Illinois, unless the parties shall
have agreed to another location within fifteen (15) calendar days from the first
referral of the dispute to the AAA. The arbitral award shall be final and
binding. The parties waive any right to appeal the arbitral award, to the extent
a right to appeal may be lawfully waived. Each party retains the right to seek
judicial assistance: (i) to compel arbitration; (ii) to obtain interim measures
of protection prior to or pending arbitration, (iii) to seek injunctive relief
in the courts of any jurisdiction as may be necessary and appropriate to protect
the unauthorized disclosure of its proprietary or confidential information, and
(iv) to enforce any decision of the arbitrator, including the final award. The
arbitration proceedings contemplated by this Section 11.12 shall be as
confidential and private as permitted by law. To that end, the parties shall not
disclose the existence, content or results of any proceedings conducted in
accordance with this Section, and materials submitted in connection with such
proceedings shall not be admissible in any other proceeding; provided, however,
that this confidentiality provision shall not prevent a petition to vacate or
enforce an arbitral award, and shall not bar disclosures required by law.
