         recent IRS determination letter request for each Pension Plan intended
         to be qualified under Section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of

         Pension Plan and Welfare Plan for which an actuarial report is required

         required by ERISA and each summary of material modifications prepared,
         as required by ERISA, after the last summary plan description, (vi)
         each trust agreement and/or group annuity contract relating to any
         Benefit Plan and (vii) all other information reasonably requested by
         Purchaser.

               (b)  Each Pension Plan maintained and each pension plan formerly
         maintained that is or was intended to be qualified under Section 401(a)
         of the Code has been the subject of a determination letter from the IRS
         to the effect that such plan is qualified under Section 401(a) of the
         Code or can still be submitted in a timely manner to the IRS for such a
         letter, and no such determination letter has been revoked nor has
         revocation of any such letter been threatened, nor has any such plan
         been amended since the date of its most recent determination letter or
         application therefor in any respect that would adversely affect its
         qualification or materially increase its costs, and all amendments
         required to be adopted before the Closing Date for any such Pension
         Plan to continue to be so qualified have been or will be duly and
         timely adopted; provided however, that to the extent that this
         representation applies to terminated pension plans, this representation
         refers to the qualified status of any such plan through the time of its
         termination. The Company has paid all premiums (including any
         applicable interest, charges and penalties for late payment) due the
         Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation ("PBGC") with respect to each such
         Pension Plan for which premiums to the PBGC are required. No such
         Pension Plan in whole or in part maintained by the Company has been
         terminated or partially terminated under circumstances which would
         result in liability to the PBGC.

               (c)  To Stockholder's Knowledge, each of the Pension Plan,
         Welfare Plan and Benefit Plans sponsored by, and each of the benefit
         plans formerly sponsored by, the Company: (i) has been in substantial

         or Subtitle B of Title I of ERISA, if applicable, or (y) other
         applicable law, (ii) has had the appropriate required Form 5500 (or

         governmental entity for each year of its existence, (iii) has at all
         times complied with the bonding requirements of (x) Section 412 of
         ERISA, if applicable, or (y) other applicable law, (iv) has no issue
         pending (other than the payment of benefits in the normal course) nor
         any issue resolved adversely to the Company which may subject the
         Company or any of its subsidiaries to the payment of material penalty,
         interest, tax or other obligation, nor is there any basis for any
         imposition of any such liability, and (v) has been maintained in all
         respects in compliance with the applicable requirements of ERISA, the
         Code and other applicable law not otherwise covered hereunder so as not
         to give rise to any material liabilities to the Company.

<PAGE>
 
               (d)  All voluntary employee benefit associations maintained by
         the Company and intended to be exempt from federal income tax under
         Section 501(c)(9) of the Code have been submitted to and approved as
         exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(9) of the Code by
         the IRS, and nothing has occurred or failed to occur which would cause
         the loss of such exemption.

               (e)  The execution of this Agreement or the consummation of the
         transactions contemplated by this Agreement will not give rise to any,
         or trigger any, change of control, severance or other similar
         provisions in any Pension Plan, Welfare Plan or Benefit Plan. The
         consummation of any transaction contemplated by this Agreement will not
         result in any (i) payment (whether of severance pay or otherwise)
         becoming due from the Company to any officer, employee, former employee
         or director thereof or to the trustee under any "rabbi trust" or
         similar arrangement; (ii) benefit under any Benefit Plan of the Company
         being established or becoming accelerated, vested or payable; or (iii)
         payment or series of payments by the Company, directly or indirectly,
         to any person that would constitute a "parachute payment" within the
         meaning of Section 280G of the Code.

               (f)  Except as may be required by federal or North Carolina law,
         the Company provides no material post-retirement medical, health,
         disability or death protection coverage nor contributes to or maintains
         any employee welfare benefit plan which provides for medical, health,
         disability or death benefit coverage following termination of
         employment by any officer, director or employee except as is required
         by Section 4980B(f) of the Code or other applicable statute, nor has it
         made any representations, agreements, covenants or commitments to
         provide that coverage.

               (g)  No Pension Plan or pension plan subject to Title IV of ERISA
         (i) that the Company maintains or maintained, or (ii) to which the
         Company is or was obligated to contribute, other than any such plan
         that is or was a "multiemployer plan" (as such term is defined in
         Section 4001(a)(3) of ERISA) had, as of its most recent annual
         valuation date, an "unfunded benefit liability" (as such term is
         defined in Section 4001(a)(18) of ERISA), based on actuarial
         assumptions which have been furnished to Purchaser. None of such plans
         subject to Section 302 of ERISA has an "accumulated funding deficiency"
         (as such term is defined in Section 302 of ERISA), whether or not
         waived. None of the Company, any officer of the Company or any of the
         Pension Plan or Welfare Plans (including the Pension Plans and prior
         pension plans) which are subject to ERISA, or any trusts created
         thereunder, or any trustee or administrator thereof, has engaged in a
         "prohibited transaction" (as such term is defined in Section 406, 407
         or 408 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code) or any other breach of
         fiduciary responsibility that could subject the Company or any officer
         of the Company to the tax or penalty on prohibited transactions imposed
         by such Section 4975 of the Code or to any liability under Section
         502(i) or (1) of ERISA which would have a Material Adverse Effect on
         the Company. No "reportable event" (as that term is defined in Section
         4043 of ERISA) with respect to which the 30-day notice requirement has
         not been waived has occurred and is continuing with respect to any such
         Pension Plan. The Company has not suffered a "complete withdrawal" or a
         "partial withdrawal" (as such terms are defined in Section 4203 and

-----------------------------------

               (a)  Stockholder understands that Stockholder must bear the
         economic risk of the investment in the Purchaser Shares for an
         indefinite period of time because the Purchaser Shares are not
         registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933
         Act") or the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction.
         Stockholder has been advised that there is currently no public market
         for the Purchaser Shares and that the Purchaser Shares are not being
         registered under the 1933 Act upon the basis that the transactions
         involving its sale are exempt from such registration requirements, and
         that reliance by Purchaser on such exemption is predicated in part on
         the Stockholder's representations set forth in this Agreement.
         Stockholder acknowledges that no representations of any kind concerning
         the future ability to offer or sell the Purchaser Shares in a public
         offering or otherwise have been made to Stockholder by Purchaser or any
         other person or entity. Stockholder understands that Purchaser makes no
         covenant, representation or warranty with respect to the registration
         of securities under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or
         its dissemination to the public of any current financial or other
         information concerning Purchaser. Accordingly, Stockholder acknowledges
         that there is no assurance that there will ever be any public market
         for the

         Stockholder's current needs and personal contingencies without regard
         to the investment in Purchaser. Stockholder acknowledges that an
         investment in Purchaser involves a high degree of risk. Stockholder
         acknowledges that Stockholder and Stockholder's advisors have had an
         opportunity to ask questions of and to receive answers from the

         pledge, transfer, convey or otherwise dispose of the Purchaser Shares
         except pursuant to the repurchase option set forth in Section 4.4 or in
         a transaction that is the subject of either (i) an effective
         registration statement under the 1933 Act and any applicable state
         securities laws, or (ii) an opinion of counsel, which opinion of
         counsel shall be satisfactory to Purchaser, to the effect that such
         registration is not required. Purchaser may rely on such an opinion of
         Stockholder's counsel in making such determination. Stockholder
         consents to the placement of legends on any certificates or documents
         representing any of the Purchaser Shares stating that the Purchaser
         Shares have not been registered under the 1933 Act or any applicable
         state securities laws and setting forth or referring to the
         restrictions on transferability and sale thereof. Stockholder is aware

contingent or otherwise,  and to Purchaser's Knowledge whether or not determined
or  determinable)  and  there  is no  existing  condition,  situation  or set of
circumstances  which could result in such a liability or obligation,  except for

         3.11 TAXES.
              -----

              (a)  Purchaser  has  timely  filed all  federal  and other Tax
         Returns  which are  required  to be filed;  and there are no waivers or
         extensions of the statute of  limitations,  audits or  examinations  in
         progress,  judicial proceedings,  or claims against Purchaser for Taxes
         (including  penalties  and  interest)  for any period or periods to and
         including December 31, 1997 and no notice of any claim, whether pending
         or threatened,  for Taxes has been received and not paid. The Purchaser
         is not a party to any Tax allocation or sharing  agreement  (i.e.,  any
         agreement or arrangement  for the payment of Tax liabilities or payment
         for Tax benefits  with respect to a  consolidated,  combined or unitary
         Tax Return  which  included the  Purchaser);  there are no requests for
         rulings  in respect of any Tax  pending by the  Purchaser  with any tax
         authority;  and no penalty or  deficiency in respect of any Taxes which
         has been assessed  against the Purchaser  remains  unpaid.  The amounts
         shown  as  accruals  for  Taxes  on  the  Balance  Sheet  delivered  to
         stockholder as a part of Schedule 3.9 are sufficient for the payment of
         all  Taxes for any time or  arising  or  incurred  in  connection  with
         periods on or before  December 31, 1997 and  Purchaser  has reserved an
         amount  sufficient to pay all such Taxes.  For purposes of this Section
         3.11,  "Tax"  shall mean any  United  States or other  federal,  state,
         provincial,  local or foreign income, gross receipts,  property, sales,
         goods  and  services  use,  license,  excise,  franchise,   employment,
         payroll,  withholding,  alternative  or  add-on  minimum,  ad  valorem,
         transfer or excise tax, or any other tax,  custom,  duty,  governmental
         fee or other like assessment or charge of any kind whatsoever, together
         with any interest or penalty,  imposed by any  governmental  authority.
         "Tax  Return"  shall  mean any  return,  report  or  similar  statement
         required to be filed with  respect to any Tax  (including  any attached
         schedules),  including,  without  limitation,  any information  return,
         claim for refund, amended return and declaration of estimated Tax.

         applicable laws, rules and regulations relating to information
         reporting with respect to payments made to third parties and the
         withholding of and payment of withhold Taxes and has timely withheld
         from employee wages and other payments and paid over to the proper
         taxing authorities all amounts required to be so withheld and paid over
         for all periods under all applicable laws or it has finally resolved
         and fully satisfied any liability for any failure to comply with any
         such matters.

              (d)  To Purchaser's Knowledge, there is no pending claim by any
         taxing authority in any jurisdiction in which the Purchaser does not
         pay Taxes or file Tax Returns that the Purchaser is required to pay
         Taxes or file Tax Returns.

              (e)  The Purchaser has not made an election under Section 341(f)
         of the Code.

              (f)  The Purchaser has not agreed nor is required to make any
         adjustment under Section 481(a) of the Code.

         3.12 LOCK-UP AGREEMENT.  To Purchaser's Knowledge, the Lock-Up
              -----------------
Agreement being executed by the Stockholder will not be more restrictive, in any
manner, than the Lock-Up Agreement that will be executed by Alan J. Dabbiere in
connection with the proposed initial public offering of Purchaser if such
offering occurs.

         3.13 SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT.  The Subscription Agreement (as defined in
              ---------------------- 
Section 4.5) shall be the same for all shareholders of Purchaser converting
their membership interests in Manhattan Associates, LLC to shares in Manhattan
Associates, Inc.

         3.14 PURCHASER SHARES. The Purchaser Shares represent, and will
              ----------------
represent as of the Closing Date 0.5305% of the issued and outstanding Shares of
Purchaser. The Purchaser Shares are of the same class and character, and have
the same anti-dilution and preemptive rights, if any, as the shares of Purchaser
owned by Alan J. Dabbiere; provided, however, that such anti-dilution and
preemptive rights shall only automatically terminate upon consummation of the
transaction contemplated by the Subscription Agreement which will occur
substantially contemporaneously with the Purchaser's initial public offering.
"Substantially contemporaneously" shall mean the consummation of the transaction
contemplated by the Subscription Agreement and initial public offering occurring
within ten (10) days of each other.

Section 4.1 with respect to Trade Secrets shall remain in effect for as long as
such information remains a Trade Secret through no fault of Stockholder.

              ----------------------
THAT HE HEREBY FULLY RELEASES, ACQUITS AND FOREVER DISCHARGES THE COMPANY, FROM
ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, CLAIM, DAMAGE, SUIT, COST, EXPENSE OR OBLIGATION OF ANY
NATURE WHATSOEVER WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, ARISING IN RESPECT OF OR IN
CONNECTION WITH ANY TIME OR PERIOD OF TIME PRIOR TO THE DATE HEREOF, EXCEPT FOR
COMPENSATION PAYABLE TO STOCKHOLDER BY THE COMPANY FOR THE MOST RECENT STANDARD
PAYROLL PERIOD BASED UPON THE COMPANY S STANDARD PRACTICES WHICH HAVE NOT BEEN
PAID PLUS THE REASONABLE REIMBURSABLE EXPENSES BASED UPON THE PAST PRACTICES OF
STOCKHOLDER THAT HAVE NOT BEEN PAID AND EXCEPT FOR ANY RIGHTS UNDER THE
CONSOLIDATED OMNIBUS BUDGET RECONCILIATION ACT OF 1985.

         4.3  RELEASE OF STOCKHOLDER GUARANTEES. Purchaser agrees that it will
              ---------------------------------

days following the Closing from the following obligations of the Company for
which he is personally liable: (i) SOFI IV (office lease); (ii) BMW Financial
Services (car lease); (iii) American Express (credit card); and (iv) 360
Communications (cellular phone account). If Purchaser is unable to secure a
release within the stated time period, then Purchaser shall either pay in full
the applicable obligation and close the account, or provide Stockholder with
indemnification satisfactory to Stockholder for any continuing personal
liability under such obligation.

         4.4  OPTION OF STOCKHOLDER TO REQUIRE THAT PURCHASER REPURCHASE ITS
              --------------------------------------------------------------  
PURCHASER SHARES. In the event Purchaser does not close an initial public

exercise of such option. The place, date and hour for such closing shall be set
forth in a written notice from Stockholder to Purchaser, which notice shall be
given at least 10 days prior to the closing date. At the closing, Purchaser
shall pay the full purchase price payable for the Purchaser Shares to
Stockholder in immediately available funds. For purposes of clarification, the
option set forth in this Section 4.4 to require Purchaser to repurchase the
Purchaser Shares shall only apply to the Purchaser Shares that Stockholder
acquires at Closing and not to any shares of Purchaser acquired hereafter
whether under an option agreement or any other agreement.

and warranty contained in this Agreement shall terminate (the "Survival Date")
                                                               -------------

                                                         --------  -------

              ------------------------------

times from and after the date of this Agreement (subject to any limitation on
the survival of representations and warranties set forth in Section 5.1) against
all losses, claims, damages, actions, suits, proceedings, demands, assessments,
adjustments, costs and expenses ("Losses") including specifically, but without
limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees (except as otherwise provided in Section
5.6(a) with respect to counsel employed at the expense of the indemnified party)
("Legal Expenses") based upon, resulting from or arising out of (a) any
  --------------
inaccuracy or breach of any representation or warranty of Stockholder contained

Stockholder to observe, any of his covenants or other agreements contained in
this Agreement .

<PAGE>
 
from or arising out of (a) any inaccuracy or breach of any representation or
warranty of Purchaser contained in this Agreement in this Agreement, and (b) the
breach by Purchaser of, or the failure by Purchaser to observe, any of its
covenants or other agreements contained in this Agreement.

         5.4  TAX INDEMNIFICATION.
              -------------------

         (a)  Each party agrees to report Stockholder's transfer of shares of
Company to Purchaser in exchange for the Purchaser Shares as a transaction
qualifying for non-recognition treatment to Stockholder pursuant to the Code and
in particular Code Section 721 to the extent the consideration received by
Stockholder consists of Purchaser Shares. Stockholder acknowledges and agrees
that all cash paid to Stockholder under this Agreement shall be fully taxable to
Stockholder and payment of any Taxes by Stockholder relating to such payments
shall not be indemnified by Purchaser.

         (b)  Subject to the preceding sentence, Purchaser hereby covenants and
agrees for itself, its successors and assigns to indemnify and hold harmless
Stockholder, his heirs and estate, at all times after the Closing Date, against
and in respect of all assessments, claims, or demands for tax, interest,
penalties, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable accounting
and attorney's fees to litigate any assessment along with penalties and interest
in either the U.S. Tax Court or U.S. Federal District Court) arising from the
determination by any federal or state taxing authority that the receipt of
Purchaser Shares by Stockholder is an income recognition event taxable to
Stockholder whether upon receipt of the Purchaser Shares or as a result of
subsequent action by Purchaser or its successors or assigns (other than pursuant
to the options to purchase additional Shares of Purchaser granted to
Stockholder). All of the foregoing costs and expenses incurred plus the income
tax and any penalties or interest assessed thereon shall be payable by Purchaser
within fifteen (15) days of Purchaser's receipt of written notice from
Stockholder.

         (c)  In the event that Stockholder shall dispose of some or all of his
Purchaser Shares (or any interest in any successor entity to Purchaser) in a
taxable transaction and Purchaser shall have indemnified Stockholder as provided
in the preceding paragraph because the receipt of the Purchaser Shares by
Stockholder is determined to be taxable, Stockholder shall refund to Purchaser
the amount by which the tax on such disposition (the "Disposition") is reduced
as a result of the increased basis of the disposed interest attributable to
consummation of the transactions provided herein and treatment of the receipt of
shares as a taxable transaction. The amount of such refund shall be determined
by calculating the tax that would be due on the Disposition assuming that the
original acquisition basis of the disposed interest was equal to (a) basis of
the stock in the Company contributed for the Purchaser Shares, (b) adjusted by
subsequent allocations of income, loss, and for distributions, to the extent
required by the Code, and (c) subtracting from the hypothetical amount of tax as
so determined the tax actually due on the Disposition, after giving effect to
the increased basis of shares received in this transaction if characterized as a
taxable transaction. Stockholder shall only be required to refund the net tax
savings so determined and not any interest, penalty, or expenses paid by
Purchaser pursuant to this indemnification.

              -----------------------

indemnifying party shall be liable only for the excess, provided, however, that
this limitation shall not apply to (i) any obligations pursuant to the
Stockholder Employment Agreement, (ii) the repurchase option contained in
Section 4.4 of this Agreement, (iii) the Contribution Consideration indicated in
Section 1.2, (iv) the indemnification set forth in Section 5.4 and 5.7, (v)
Purchaser's representations set forth in Section 3.14, and (vi) Stockholder's
representation set forth in Section 2.29.

         entitled to participate in the defense of such Third Party Action and

         Party Action) with its own counsel; provided, however, that:
                                             --------  -------
                   (i)   the indemnified party shall be entitled to participate

                         Legal Expenses for purposes of this Agreement) to
                         assist in the handling of such Third Party Action; 

                   (ii)  the indemnifying party shall obtain the prior written
                         approval of the indemnified party before entering into
                         any settlement of such Third Party Action or ceasing to
                         defend against such Third Party Action, if pursuant to
                         or as a result of such settlement or cessation,
                         injunctive or other equitable relief would be imposed
                         against the indemnified party or the indemnified party
                         would be adversely affected thereby;

                   (iii) no indemnifying party shall consent to the entry of any
                         judgment or enter into any settlement that does not
                         include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by
                         each claimant or plaintiff to each indemnified party of
                         a release from all liability in respect of such Third
                         Party Action; and

                   (iv)  the indemnifying party shall not be entitled to control
                         the defense or settlement of any Third Party Action
                         unless the indemnifying party confirms in writing its
                         assumption of such defense or settlement and continues
                         to pursue the defense reasonably and in good faith.

by such indemnified party attributable to defending against such Third Party
Action, and (ii) as long as the indemnifying party is reasonably contesting such
Third Party Action in good faith, the indemnified party shall not admit any
liability with respect to, or settle, compromise or discharge the claim
underlying, such Third Party Action without the indemnifying party's prior
written consent. If the indemnifying party does not assume control of the
defense of such Third Party Action in accordance with this Section 5.6, the
indemnified party shall have the right to defend and/or settle such Third Party
Action in a good faith manner at the cost and expense of the indemnifying party,
and the indemnifying party will reimburse the indemnified party for fees, costs
and expenses required by this Section 5.6 within 30 days of when bills are
received or expenses incurred and will reimburse the final settlement within 10
days after the execution of the settlement documents.

         (b)  If an indemnified party has actual knowledge of any facts or
circumstances other than the commencement of a Third Party Action which cause it
in good faith to believe that it is entitled to indemnification under this
Section 5, then such indemnified party shall promptly give the indemnifying
party notice thereof in writing, but any failure to so notify the indemnifying
party shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have to the
indemnified party under Section 5.2, 5.3, or 5.4 as the case may be, except to
the extent that the indemnifying party is prejudiced by the failure to give such
notice.

 5.7     TAX MATTERS.

          (a) Stockholder shall be responsible for preparing and filing all Tax

     than the later of (i) the tenth business day after Stockholder receives
     notice from Purchaser that such tax is due, and (ii) ten (10) business days
     before the date such tax is due and payable. Any amount not paid when due

     taxing authority.

         (e)  Purchaser and Stockholder shall promptly notify each other in
     writing upon receipt by them or their affiliates of notice of any pending
     or threatened audit or assessment with respect to Taxes for any periods
     ending on or prior to December 31, 1997 which Stockholder would be required
     to pay Purchaser pursuant to this Section 5.7. Upon Stockholder's
     acknowledgment of his liability with respect thereto, Stockholder will have
     the right, at his expense, to control any audit, administrative or court
     proceeding relating to Taxes for any periods ending on or prior to December
     31, 1997; provided, however, that (i) Stockholder shall promptly notify
     Purchaser in writing as to any examination by or disputes with taxing
     authorities that relate to such periods, and (ii) Purchaser shall be kept
     informed and allowed, at its expense, to participate therein.

         (f)  Purchaser shall be responsible for handling all Tax matters
     related to the Company, including dealing with and resolving audit issues,

     examination by or disputes with taxing authorities that relate to such
     periods, and (ii) Stockholder shall be kept informed and allowed, at his
     expense, to participate therein.

         (g)  Stockholder and Purchaser shall use his or its best efforts to

     the preparation of any Tax Return or other document required to be filed
     with any taxing Authority, any audit or other examination by any taxing
     Authority, any judicial or administrative proceeding or dispute relating to
     liability for Taxes or any claim for indemnification arising under this
     Section 5.7 and each shall retain and provide to the other access to such
     records and other information as may be relevant to such return, audit,
     examination, proceeding or determination.

     5.8 LIMITATIONS ON INDEMNITY OBLIGATIONS. Notwithstanding any other
         ------------------------------------
provision in this Section 5 to the contrary, no indemnifying party shall be
liable to an indemnified party for punitive 

                                       28
<PAGE>
 
damages pursuant to Section 5.2 or 5.3, as the case may be; provided, that the
claim against such indemnifying party does not involve a Third Party Action in
which punitive damages are sought.

6.       NONCOMPETITION

         6.1  PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES. Stockholder hereby covenants, acknowledges
              ---------------------   
and agrees as follows:

              (a)  For a period of two years after the Closing  Date  (except
         as set forth in the following paragraph), Stockholder shall not for any
         reason whatsoever,  directly or indirectly, for himself or on behalf or
         in conjunction with any other person,  persons,  company,  partnership,
         corporation  or  business  of whatever  nature  engage,  as an officer,
         director, shareholder, owner, partner, joint venturer, lender or in any
         capacity, whether as an employee, independent contractor, consultant or
         advisor,  or as a  sales  representative,  engage  in  any  Competitive
         Business in any county or other  political  subdivision of any state of
         the  United  States of  America  in which  the  Company  is  conducting
         business  as of  the  Closing  or has  conducted  business  during  the
         12-month period immediately preceding the Closing. For purposes hereof,
         the term  "Competitive  Business" shall mean engaging in a business the
         same  as or  substantially  similar  to the  business  of  development,
         consulting and sales of transportation management and inventory control
         software as operated  by the Company  during the term of  Stockholder's
         employment by the Company immediately prior to the Closing.

              Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this paragraph (a)
         Stockholder may (i) be a passive investor owning no more than 10% of
         the outstanding equity securities of any corporation or other entity
         which is in competition with Purchaser the equity securities of which
         are listed on a national securities exchange or over-the-counter, or
         (ii) invest in or act as an employee, consultant or other position for
         Purchaser.

              (b)  For a period of two years after the Closing Date, Stockholder
         shall not offer to employ any person who is, at that time, or which has
         been within one (1) year prior to that time, an employee of the
         Company; 

              (c)  For a period of two years after the Closing Date, Stockholder
         shall not, directly or indirectly, interfere with any contract or
         agreement that the Company has with any customer, supplier, associate,
         employee, sales or other agent or independent contractor of the Company
         or which has been a customer, supplier, employee, sales or other agent
         or independent contractor of the Company within one (1) year prior to
         that time;

              (d)  Stockholder acknowledges that the damages that would be
         suffered by Purchaser as a result of any breach of the provisions of
         this Section 6.1 may not be calculable and that an award of a monetary
         judgment for such a breach would be an inadequate remedy. Consequently,
         Purchaser shall have the right, in addition to any other rights it may
         have, to obtain, in any court of competent jurisdiction, injunctive
         relief to restrain any breach or threatened breach of any provision of
         this Section 6.1 or otherwise to specifically enforce any 

                                       29
<PAGE>
 
         of the provisions hereof. This remedy is in addition to damages
         directly or indirectly suffered by Purchaser;

              (e)  In the event that any court finally determines that the time
         period or the geographic scope of any such covenant is unreasonable or
         excessive and any covenant is to that extent made unenforceable, the
         parties agree that the restrictions of this Section 6.1 shall remain in
         full force and effect for the greatest time period and within the
         greatest geographic area that would not render it unenforceable. The
         parties intend that each of the covenants in Sections 6.1(a), (b), (c)
         and (d) shall be deemed to be a separate covenant.

         6.2  INDEPENDENT COVENANT.
              --------------------

              (a)  It is specifically agreed that the period of two (2) years
          stated at the beginning of this Section 6, during which the agreements
          and covenants of Stockholder made in this Section 6 shall be
          effective, shall be computed by excluding from such computation any
          time during which Stockholder is in violation of any provision of this
          Section 6.

              (b)  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if (i) the
         Purchaser or Company fail to make any monetary payment owed under the
         Stockholder Employment Agreement, (ii) the Purchaser fails to satisfy
         its repurchase obligation set forth in Section 4.4., or (iii) Purchaser
         or Company otherwise materially breaches the Stockholder Employment
         Agreement; then Stockholder shall no longer be obligated to the terms
         of this Section 6 upon Purchaser's failure to cure such breach within
         ten (10) days after Purchaser's receipt of notice from Employee. For
         purposes of determining whether a material breach has occurred under
         Section 6.2(a)(iii) above the parties shall submit the matter to
         arbitration under Section 15 of the Stockholder Employment Agreement
         within thirty (30) days after Purchaser's receipt of written notice of
         such breach.

         6.3  MATERIALITY.  Stockholder hereby agrees that this covenant is a
