     NOW, THEREFORE, the Company and the Purchasers hereby agree as follows:

eighty days following the Closing Date (as defined below), any single date
selected by the Purchasers, in their sole discretion, following such one hundred
eighty days.

<PAGE>
     "Adjustment Date Market Price" shall mean the lower of (i) the average
Closing Price during the ten (10) Trading Days ending on the Trading Day

preceding day which was a Trading Day. If the Closing Price cannot be calculated

bases, the Closing Price of such security on such date shall be the fair market

Purchaser and reasonably acceptable to the Company, with the costs of such

Agreement or (iii) the business, operations, properties, prospects or financial
condition of the Company and its subsidiaries, if any, taken as a whole.

     b. Number of Closing Shares and Warrants; Form of Payment; Closing Date.

          i. On the Closing Date (as defined below), the Company shall sell and

quotient of (I) such Purchaser's Investment Amount divided by (II) $13.60875,
(B) Series 1 Warrants exercisable for such Purchaser's Pro Rata Percentage of
the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock for which Series 1 Warrants are
exercisable and (C) Series 2 Warrants exercisable for such Purchaser's Pro Rata
Percentage of the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock for which Series 2

additional whole shares of Common Stock (the "Adjustment Shares") equal to the

Closing Date; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to issue
to any Purchaser a number of Adjustment Shares which, when aggregated with the
Closing Shares previously issued to such Purchaser, would exceed the product of
the Share Limit multiplied by such Purchaser's Pro Rata Percentage. The
Adjustment Shares shall be deemed to be outstanding as of the Adjustment Date.

3.   PURCHASER'S REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.
     ------------------------------------------

     Each Purchaser severally and not jointly represents and warrants to the
Company as follows:

     a. Purchase for Own Account. The Purchaser is purchasing the Securities for
the Purchaser's own account and not with a present view towards the distribution
thereof. Notwithstanding anything in this Section 3(a) to the contrary, by
making the foregoing representation, the Purchaser does not agree to hold the
Securities for any minimum or other specific term and reserves the right to
dispose of the Securities at any time in accordance with or pursuant to a
registration statement or an exemption from registration under the Securities
Act and any applicable state securities laws.

     b. Information. The Purchaser has been furnished all materials relating to
the business, finances and operations of the Company and materials relating to
the offer and sale of the Securities which have been requested by the Purchaser.
The Purchaser has been afforded the opportunity to ask questions of the Company
and has received what the Purchaser believes to be satisfactory answers to any
such inquiries. The Purchaser understands that its investment in the Securities
involves a high degree of risk. Neither such inquiries nor any other due
diligence investigation conducted by the Purchaser or its counsel or any of its
representatives shall modify, amend or affect the Purchaser's right to rely on
the Company's representations and warranties contained in Section 4 below.

     c. Governmental Review. The Purchaser understands that no United States
federal or state agency or any other government or governmental agency has
passed upon or made any recommendation or endorsement of the Securities.

     d. Authorization; Enforcement. The Purchaser has the requisite power and
authority to enter into and perform its obligations under this Agreement and to
purchase the Shares and the Warrants in accordance with the terms hereof. This
Agreement has been duly and validly authorized, executed and delivered on behalf
of the Purchaser and is a valid and binding agreement of the Purchaser
enforceable against the Purchaser in accordance with its terms, subject

                                       4
<PAGE>
to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent
transfer and other laws affecting creditors' rights and remedies generally and
to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in
a proceeding at law or in equity).

     e. Transfer or Resale. The Purchaser understands that (i) except as
provided in the Registration Rights Agreement, the Securities have not been and
are not being registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws,
and may not be transferred unless (a) subsequently registered thereunder, or (b)
the Purchaser shall have delivered to the Company an opinion of counsel
reasonably acceptable to the Company (which opinion shall be in form, substance
and scope customary for opinions of counsel in comparable transactions) to the
effect that the Securities to be sold or transferred may be sold or transferred
under an exemption from such registration, or (c) sold under Rule 144
promulgated under the Securities Act (or a successor rule), or (d) sold or
transferred to an affiliate of the Purchaser pursuant to an exemption under the
Securities Act; and (ii) neither the Company nor any other person is under any
obligation to register such Securities under the Securities Act or any state
securities laws or to comply with the terms and conditions of any exemption
thereunder, in each case, other than pursuant to the Registration Rights
Agreement.

     f. Legends. Purchaser understands that the Shares and the Warrants and,
until such time as the Shares and Warrant Shares have been registered under the
Securities Act (including registration pursuant to Rule 416 thereunder) as
contemplated by the Registration Rights Agreement or otherwise may be sold by
Purchaser under Rule 144, the certificates for the Shares and Warrant Shares may
bear a restrictive legend in substantially the following form:

          The securities represented by this certificate have not been
          registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or
          the securities laws of any state of the United States. The
          securities represented hereby may not be offered or sold in
          the absence of an effective registration statement for the
          securities under applicable securities laws unless offered,
          sold or transferred under an available exemption from the
          registration requirements of those laws.

     The legend set forth above shall be removed and the Company shall issue a
certificate without such legend to the holder of any Security upon which it is
stamped, if, unless otherwise required by state securities laws, (a) the sale of
such Security is registered under the Securities Act (including registration
pursuant to Rule 416 thereunder), or (b) such holder provides the Company with
an opinion of counsel, in form, substance and scope customary for opinions of
counsel in comparable transactions, to the effect that a public sale or transfer
of such Security may be made without registration under the Securities Act or
(c) such holder provides the Company with reasonable assurances that such
Security can be sold under Rule 144(k). Purchaser agrees to sell all Securities,
including those represented by a certificate(s) from which the legend has been
removed, pursuant to an effective registration statement or under an exemption
from the registration requirements of the Securities Act. In the event the above
legend is removed from any Security and thereafter the effectiveness of a
registration statement covering such Security is suspended or the Company
determines that a supplement or amendment thereto is required by applicable
securities laws, then upon reasonable advance notice to Purchaser the Company
may require that the above

                                       5
<PAGE>
legend be placed on any such Security and Purchaser shall cooperate in the
prompt replacement of such legend.

     g. Accredited Investor Status. Purchaser is an "accredited investor" as
that term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D. The Purchaser is not
registered as a broker or dealer under Section 15(a) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934, as amended, or a member of the NASD (as defined below).

     h. Company Reliance. The Purchaser understands that the Closing Shares are
being offered and sold, the Warrants are being issued, and the Adjustment Shares
are being offered, to it in reliance on specific exemptions from the
registration requirements of United States federal and state securities laws and
that the Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of, and the Purchaser's
compliance with, the representations, warranties, agreements, acknowledgments,
and understandings of the Purchaser set forth herein in order to determine the
availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of the Purchaser to acquire
the Closing Shares and the Warrants and to receive an offer of the Adjustment
Shares.

     i. Authorization. This Agreement has been duly and validly authorized,
executed, and delivered on behalf of the Purchaser and is a valid and binding
agreement of the Purchaser enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to
general principles of equity and to bankruptcy, insolvency, moratorium and other
similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights generally.

     e. No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement,
the Registration Rights Agreement and the Warrants by the Company, and the
consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby
(including, without limitation, the reservation for issuance and issuance of the
Shares and the Warrant Shares and the issuance of the Warrants) will not (i)
conflict with or result in a violation of the Articles of Incorporation or
By-laws or (ii) conflict with, or constitute a default (or an event which, with
notice or lapse of time or both, would become a default) under, or give to
others any rights of termination, amendment, acceleration or cancellation of any
agreement, indenture or instrument to which the Company is a party, or result in
a violation of any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment or decree (including
United States federal and state securities laws and regulations) applicable to
the Company or by which any property or asset of the Company is bound or
affected (except, with respect to clause (ii), for such conflicts, defaults,
terminations, amendments, accelerations, cancellations and violations as would
not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Material Adverse Effect). The
Company is in compliance with its Articles of Incorporation, By-laws and other
organizational documents and is not in default (and no event has occurred which,
with notice or lapse of time or both, would put the Company in default) under,
nor has there occurred any event giving others (with notice or lapse of time or
both) any rights of termination, amendment, acceleration or cancellation of, any
agreement, indenture or instrument to which the Company is a party, except for
actual or possible violations, defaults or rights as would not, individually or
in the aggregate, have a Material Adverse Effect. The business of the Company is
not being conducted in violation of any law, ordinance or regulation of any
governmental entity, except for actual or possible violations, if any, the
sanctions for which either singly or in the aggregate would not have a Material
Adverse Effect. Except as specifically contemplated by this Agreement and as
required under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws, the
Company is not required to obtain any consent, approval, authorization or order
of, or make any filing or registration with, any court or governmental agency or

perform any of its obligations under this Agreement (including, without
limitation, the issuance and sale of the Shares and Warrants as provided
hereby), or the Warrants (including the issuance of the Warrant Shares), in each
case in accordance with the terms hereof or thereof. The Company is not in

and does not reasonably anticipate that the Common Stock will be delisted by
NASDAQ in the foreseeable future based on its rules (and interpretations
thereof) as currently in effect.

     f. SEC Documents; Financial Statements. Since August 27, 1996, the Company
has timely filed all reports, schedules, forms, statements and other documents
required to be filed by it with the SEC pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), and has filed all registration
statements and other documents required to be filed by it with the SEC pursuant
to the Securities Act (all of the foregoing filed prior to the date hereof, and
all exhibits included therein and financial statements and schedules thereto and
documents incorporated by reference therein, being hereinafter referred to
herein as the "SEC Documents"). The Company has made available to each Purchaser
true and complete copies of the SEC Documents, except for the exhibits and
schedules thereto and the documents incorporated therein. As of their respective
dates, the SEC Documents complied in all material respects with the requirements
of the Exchange Act or the Securities Act, as the case may be, and the rules and
regulations of the SEC promulgated thereunder applicable to the SEC Documents,
and none of the SEC Documents, at the time they were filed with the SEC,
contained any untrue statement

                                       8
<PAGE>
of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated
therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the
circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. Except as set forth on
Schedule 4(f), any statements made in any such SEC Documents that are or were
required to be updated or amended under applicable law have been so updated or
amended. As of their respective dates, the financial statements of the Company
included in the SEC Documents complied in all material respects with applicable
accounting requirements and the published rules and regulations of the SEC
applicable with respect thereto. Such financial statements have been prepared in
accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles,
consistently applied, during the periods involved (except (i) as may be
otherwise indicated in such financial statements or the notes thereto, or (ii)
in the case of unaudited interim statements, to the extent they may not include
footnotes or may be condensed or summary statements) and fairly present in all
material respects the financial position of the Company as of the dates thereof
and the results of its operations and cash flows for the periods then ended
(subject, in the case of unaudited statements, to normal and recurring year-end
audit adjustments). Except as set forth in the SEC Documents, the Company has no
liabilities, contingent or otherwise, other than (i) liabilities incurred in the
ordinary course of business subsequent to the date of such SEC Documents and
(ii) obligations under contracts and commitments incurred in the ordinary course
of business and not required under generally accepted accounting principles to
be reflected in such SEC Documents, which liabilities and obligations referred
to in clauses (i) and (ii), individually or in the aggregate, would not have a
Material Adverse Effect. The Company has made available to each Purchaser a
draft of its Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended December 31, 1998, including
the exhibits included therein and financial statements and schedules thereto and
documents incorporated by reference therein (the "Draft 10-K"). The Draft 10-K
shall be deemed to be an SEC Document hereunder. The Company's Form 10-K for the
fiscal year ended December 31, 1998, which will be filed by the Company with the
SEC pursuant to the Exchange Act, will not differ in any material respect from
the Draft 10-K.

     g. Absence of Certain Changes. Except as disclosed in the SEC Documents,
since December 31, 1998, there has been no change or development which
individually or in the aggregate has had or would have a Material Adverse
Effect.

     h. Absence of Litigation. Except as disclosed in the SEC Documents, there
is no action, suit, proceeding, inquiry or investigation before or by any court,
public board, government agency, self-regulatory organization or body pending
or, to the Company's knowledge, threatened against or affecting the Company, or
any of its directors or officers in their capacities as such which would have a
Material Adverse Effect or which would adversely affect the validity,
enforceability of, or the authority or ability of the Company to perform its
obligations under this Agreement (including the issuance of the Shares and the
Warrants), the Registration Rights Agreement, the Warrants (including the
issuance of the Warrant Shares) or any other agreement or document delivered
pursuant hereto or thereto.

     i. Intellectual Property. The Company owns or is licensed to use all
patents, patent applications, trademarks, trademark applications, trade names,
service marks, copyrights, copyright applications, licenses, permits, know-how
(including trade secrets and other unpatented and/or unpatentable proprietary or
confidential information, systems or procedures) and other similar rights and
proprietary knowledge (collectively, "Intangibles") necessary for the conduct

                                       9
<PAGE>
of its business as now being conducted. Except as set forth in Schedule 4(i),
the Company is not infringing or in conflict with any other person with respect
to any Intangibles which, individually or in the aggregate, if the subject of an
unfavorable decision, ruling or finding, would have a Material Adverse Effect.
Except as set forth in Schedule 4(i), the Company has not received written
notice that it is infringing upon third party Intangibles. The Company has not
entered into any consent, indemnification, forbearance to sue or settlement
agreements with respect to the validity of the Company's ownership or right to
use its Intangibles and there is no reasonable basis for any such claim to be
successful. The Intangibles are valid and enforceable, and no registration
relating thereto has lapsed, expired or been abandoned or canceled or is the
subject of cancellation or other adversarial proceedings, and all applications
therefor are pending and in good standing. The Company has complied, in all
material respects, with its contractual obligations relating to the protection
of the Intangibles used pursuant to licenses. Except as set forth in Schedule
4(i), to the Company's knowledge, no person is infringing on or violating the
Intangibles owned or used by the Company.

     j. Foreign Corrupt Practices. Neither the Company, nor any director,
officer, agent, employee or other person acting on behalf of the Company has, in
the course of such person's actions for, or on behalf of, the Company, used any
corporate funds for any unlawful contribution, gift, entertainment or other
unlawful expenses relating to political activity; made any direct or indirect
unlawful payment to any foreign or domestic government official or employee from
corporate funds; violated or is in violation of any provision of the United
States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977; or made any bribe, rebate, payoff,
influence payment, kickback or other unlawful payment to any foreign or domestic
government official or employee.

     k. Environment. Except as disclosed in the SEC Documents (i) there is no
environmental liability, nor factors likely to give rise to any environmental
liability, affecting any of the properties of the Company that, individually or

could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

     n. Disclosure. All information relating to or concerning the Company set
forth in this Agreement or provided to the Purchaser pursuant to Section 3(b)
hereof and otherwise in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby is
true and correct in all material respects and the Company has not omitted to
state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements made herein or
therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not
misleading; provided the Purchaser acknowledges that forward-looking information
provided to the Purchaser, including, but not limited to, projections of

and in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31,
1998, to be filed with the SEC within 14 days from the Closing Date. No event or
circumstance has occurred or exists with respect to the Company or its business,
properties, operations, prospects or financial conditions, which has not been
publicly disclosed but, under applicable law, rule or regulation, would be
required to be disclosed by the Company in a registration statement filed on the
date hereof by the Company under the Securities Act with respect to a primary
issuance of the Company's securities. The Company has not provided, and without
the Purchaser's consent thereto, will not hereafter provide to the Purchaser,

Company acknowledges and agrees that the Purchaser is not acting as a financial
advisor or fiduciary of the Company (or in any similar capacity) with respect to
this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, and the relationship
between the Company and the Purchaser is "arms length" and that any statement
made by the Purchaser or any of its representatives or agents in connection with
this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby is not advice or a
recommendation and is merely incidental to the Purchaser's purchase of
Securities and has not been relied upon by the Company, its officers or
directors in any way. The Company further represents to the Purchaser that the
Company's decision to enter into this Agreement has been based solely on an
independent evaluation by the Company and its representatives.

     p. No Brokers. The Company has not engaged any person to which or to whom
brokerage commissions, finder's fees, financial advisory fees or similar
payments are or will become due in connection with this Agreement or the
transactions contemplated hereby except for HCM (as defined below) in accordance
with Section 5(e) hereof and Josephthal & Co. Inc. ("Josephthal"), whose
commissions and fees will be paid by the Company. The Company has agreed to
issue a stock purchase warrant to Josephthal in connection with the execution
and delivery of this Agreement (the "Josephthal Warrant") with an exercise price
per share greater than the market price of the Common Stock on NASDAQ on the
date of issuance thereof and on such other terms as are described in Schedule
4(p).

     q. Tax Status. The Company has made or filed all federal, state and local
income and all other tax returns, reports and declarations required by any
jurisdiction to which it is subject (unless and only to the extent that the
Company has set aside on its books provisions reasonably adequate for the
payment of all unpaid and unreported taxes) and has paid all taxes and other
governmental assessments and charges that are material in amount, shown or

                                       11
<PAGE>
determined to be due on such returns, reports and declarations, except those
being contested in good faith and has set aside on its books provisions
reasonably adequate for the payment of all taxes for periods subsequent to the
periods to which such returns, reports or declarations apply. There are no
unpaid taxes claimed to be due by the taxing authority of any jurisdiction. The
Company has not executed a waiver with respect to any statute of limitations
relating to the assessment or collection of any federal, state or local tax.
Except as set forth in Schedule 4(q), none of the Company's tax returns has been

     r. No General Solicitation. Neither the Company nor any person
participating on the Company's behalf in the transactions contemplated hereby
has conducted any "general solicitation," as such term is defined in Regulation
D, with respect to any of the Securities being offered hereby.

     s. No Integrated Offering. Neither the Company, nor any of its affiliates,
nor any person acting on its or their behalf, has, directly or indirectly, made
any offers or sales of any security or solicited any offers to buy any security
under circumstances that would require registration of the Securities being
offered hereby under the Securities Act or cause this offering of Securities to
be integrated with any prior offering of securities of the Company for purposes
of the Securities Act or any applicable stockholder approval provisions,
including, without limitation, Rule 4460(i) of the National Association of
Securities Dealers ("NASD") or any similar rule.

     t. Year 2000. To the best of the Company's knowledge:

     century (through 1999), the year 2000 and the twenty-first century,
     including leap year calculations, when used in accordance with the product
     documentation accompanying such hardware and software products.

          (ii) All software developed and sold by the Company (other than third
     party software) will be able to process date data (including, but not
     limited to, calculating, comparing and sequencing) in a consistent manner
     from, into and between the twentieth century (through 1999), the year 2000

5.   COVENANTS.
     ---------

     a. Best Efforts. The parties shall use their best efforts timely to satisfy
each of the conditions set forth in Section 6 and Section 7 of this Agreement.

     b. Form D; Blue Sky Laws. The Company agrees to file a Form D with respect
to the Securities as required under Regulation D and to provide a copy thereof
to each Purchaser promptly after such filing. The Company shall, on or before
the Closing Date, take such action as the Company shall reasonably determine is
necessary to qualify the Securities for sale to the

                                       12
<PAGE>
Purchasers pursuant to this Agreement under applicable securities or "blue sky"
laws of the states of the United States or obtain exemption therefrom, and shall
provide evidence of any such action so taken to each Purchaser on or prior to
the Closing Date.

     c. Reporting Status. So long as the Purchaser beneficially owns any
Securities or has the right to acquire any Securities pursuant to this
Agreement, the Company shall timely file all reports required to be filed with
the SEC pursuant to the Exchange Act, and shall not terminate its status as an
issuer required to file reports under the Exchange Act even if the Exchange Act
or the rules and regulations thereunder would permit such termination.

     d. Use of Proceeds. The Company shall use the net proceeds from the sale of
the Shares and the Warrants for the purposes set forth on Schedule 5(d), but in
no event shall the Company use such net proceeds to repurchase any outstanding
securities of the Company without the Purchasers' prior written consent.

     e. Expenses. At the Closing, the Company shall reimburse Heights Capital
Management, Inc. ("HCM") for the out-of-pocket expenses reasonably incurred by
HCM and its affiliates and advisors in connection with the negotiation,
preparation, execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Registration Rights
Agreement, the Warrants and the other agreements to be executed in connection
herewith, including, without limitation, in conducting HCM's and its affiliates'
and advisors' reasonable due diligence and HCM's and its affiliates' reasonable
attorneys' fees and expenses (the "Expenses"). Notwithstanding the foregoing,
the Company shall not be obligated to reimburse HCM for more than $50,000 of
Expenses pursuant to this Section 5(e). The Company's obligation to reimburse
HCM may be satisfied, at the option of HCM, by crediting the amount of such
obligation against HCM's Investment Amount and thereby reducing the Investment
Amount to be paid (but not the amount of the Investment Amount) by HCM pursuant
to Section 2(b)(ii) by an amount equal to such obligation.

     f. Financial Information. For a period of two (2) years following the last
Closing, the Company agrees to send the following reports to each Purchaser: (i)
within ten days after the filing with the SEC, a copy of its Annual Report on
Form 10-K, its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, its proxy and information
statements and any Current Reports on Form 8-K and (ii) within one day after
release, copies of all press releases issued by the Company or any of its
subsidiaries, if any.

     g. Reservation of Shares. The Company has and shall at all times have
authorized and reserved for the purpose of issuance a sufficient number of
shares of Common Stock to provide for the issuance of the maximum number of
Shares as provided in Section 2 hereof and the full exercise of the Warrants and
the issuance of the Warrant Shares in connection therewith and as otherwise
required hereby and by the Warrants. The Company shall not reduce the number of
shares reserved for issuance hereunder or upon the full exercise of the Warrants
(except as a result of any such issuance hereunder or exercise of Warrants)
without the consent of the Purchaser.

     h. Listing. On the Closing Date, the Company shall have secured the listing
of the Shares and Warrant Shares, in each case, upon each national securities
exchange or automated quotation system, if any, upon which shares of Common
Stock are then listed or quoted (subject

                                       13
<PAGE>
to official notice of issuance) and shall maintain, so long as any other shares
of Common Stock shall be so listed, such listing of all Shares from time to time
issuable hereunder and all Warrant Shares from time to time issuable upon
exercise of the Warrants. The Company will use its best efforts to continue the
listing and trading of its Common Stock on NASDAQ, the New York Stock Exchange
("NYSE") or the American Stock Exchange ("AMEX") and will comply in all respects
with the Company's reporting, filing and other obligations under the bylaws or
rules of the NYSE or any other exchanges, as applicable, and the NASD.

     i. Corporate Existence. So long as any Purchaser beneficially owns any
Securities or the right to acquire any Securities pursuant to this Agreement,
the Company shall maintain its corporate existence, except in the event of a
merger, consolidation or sale of all or substantially all of the Company's
assets, as long as the surviving or successor entity in such transaction (i)
assumes the Company's obligations hereunder and under the Warrants and under the
agreements and instruments entered into in connection herewith and (ii) is a
publicly trading Company whose common stock is listed and trades on NASDAQ, the
NYSE or AMEX.

     j. Additional Equity Capital; Right of First Offer. The Company agrees that
during the period beginning on the date hereof and ending on the date which is
180 days following the Closing Date (the "Lock-Up Period"), the Company will
not, without the prior written consent of HCM, contract with any party to obtain
additional financing in which any equity or equity-linked securities are issued
(including any debt financing with an equity component) pursuant to any offering
exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act which grants any
registration rights exercisable within one year of the Closing Date ("Future
Offerings"). The Company will not conduct any Future Offering during the period
beginning on the day following the expiration of the Lock-Up Period and ending
180 days following the expiration of the Lock-Up Period unless it shall have
first delivered to the Purchasers, at least ten business days prior to the
closing of such Future Offering, written notice describing the proposed Future
Offering, including the terms and conditions thereof, and providing each
Purchaser and its affiliates an option during the ten business day period
following delivery of such notice to purchase all of the securities being
offered in the Future Offering on the same terms as contemplated by such Future
Offering (the limitations referred to in this Section 5(j) are collectively
referred to as the "Capital Raising Limitations"). The Capital Raising
Limitations shall not apply to any transaction involving issuances of securities
as consideration in a merger, consolidation or acquisition of assets, or in
connection with any strategic partnership or joint venture (the primary purpose
of which is not to raise equity capital), or as consideration for the
acquisition of a business, product or license by the Company. The Capital
Raising Limitations also shall not apply to (i) the issuance of securities
pursuant to an underwritten public offering, (ii) the issuance of securities
upon exercise or conversion of the Company's options, warrants or other
convertible securities outstanding as of the date hereof or (iii) the grant of
additional options or warrants, or the issuance of additional securities, under
any duly authorized Company stock option, stock purchase or restricted stock
plan for the benefit of the Company's employees, consultants or directors.

     k. No Integrated Offerings. The Company shall not make any offers or sales
of any security (other than the Securities) under circumstances that would
require registration of the Securities being offered or sold hereunder under the
Securities Act or cause this offering of

                                       14
<PAGE>
Securities to be integrated with any other offering of securities by the Company
for purposes of any stockholder approval provision applicable to the Company or
its securities.

     l. Certain Trading Restrictions. So long as the Company is in compliance in
all material respects with its obligations to the Purchasers pursuant to this
Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement and the Warrants, each Purchaser
agrees that it and its affiliates over which such Purchaser is exercising
investment discretion shall not engage in short sales or other hedging
transactions relating to the Common Stock prior to the earlier of (i) the
Registration Deadline (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) or (ii)
the Adjustment Date, unless and only while the then highest current bid price of
the Common Stock, as reported on NASDAQ, is greater than $17.90625. To the
extent that the foregoing sentence permits short sales or other hedging
transactions, then such transactions may only be effected in accordance with
Rule 10a-1 under the Exchange Act to the extent applicable.

mutual intent, and no rule of strict construction will be applied against any

hereunder will be inadequate and agrees, in the event of a breach or threatened
breach by the Company of the provisions of this Agreement, that a Purchaser
