By way of clarification, notwithstanding any implication to the contrary herein, the Rollover Options shall be treated as shares of Executive Securities for purposes of this Agreement.

        "Fair Market Value" of each share of Executive Securities that is Common Stock means the average of the closing prices of the sales of the Company's Common Stock on all securities exchanges on which the Common Stock may at the time be listed, or, if there have been no sales on any such exchange on any day, the average of the highest bid and lowest asked prices on all such exchanges at the end of such day, or, if on any day the Common Stock is not so listed, the average of the representative bid and asked prices quoted in the NASDAQ System as of 4:00 P.M., New York time, or, if on any day the Common Stock is not quoted in the NASDAQ System, the average of the highest bid and lowest asked prices on such day in the domestic over-the-counter market as reported by the National Quotation Bureau Incorporated, or any similar successor organization, in each such case averaged over a period of 21 days consisting of the day as of which the Fair Market Value is being determined and the 20 consecutive business days prior to such day. If at any time the Common Stock is not listed on any securities exchange or quoted in the NASDAQ System or the over-the-counter market, the Fair Market Value shall be the fair value of the Common Stock determined in good faith by the Board; provided that if the Original Cost of securities purchased (or rolled over) by the Executive as of the closing was $250,000 or greater and such Executive disagrees with the Board's determination of the Fair Market Value hereunder, then such Executive may seek a determination of fair market value by an independent investment bank, and such investment bank's determination shall be final and binding among the Executive and the Company and the fees for which will be split equally between the Executive and the Company. If the Executive and the Company cannot agree on an independent investment bank, the Company and the Executive shall each name an investment bank and those two investment banks shall name a third investment bank that shall be used to make the valuation. The Executive and the Company shall each pay 50% of the fees and expenses of such investment bank. The Fair Market Value of each share of Executive Securities that is Company Class A Preferred is the Liquidation Value of such share plus all accrued and unpaid dividends thereon. For purposes of determining the Fair Market Value of any Rollover Option, such Fair Market Value shall be equal to the excess of the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock or Company Class A Preferred acquirable upon exercise of such Rollover Option over the Exercise Price of such Rollover Option.

        "Good Reason" (A) has the meaning given to such term under Executive's Employment Agreement or (B) if and only if no such definition within such Employment Agreement is in effect on the date hereof, means, in connection with a voluntary termination by the Executive, that without his written consent (i) the Executive ceases to have the same title as of the date hereof, (ii) there shall have occurred a reduction of the Executive's base salary by more than 10% or (iii) the Company shall have materially breached this Agreement.

        "Liquidity Event" shall mean a Sale of the Company or a Public Offering.

        "1933 Act" means the Securities Act of 1933, as amended from time to time.

        "Original Cost" of each share of Company Common Stock purchased hereunder shall be equal to $1.00 (as proportionately adjusted for all subsequent stock splits, stock dividends and other recapitalizations) and of each share of Company Class A Preferred shall be equal to $1,000.00 (as proportionately adjusted for all subsequent stock splits, stock dividends and other recapitalizations). The Original Cost of each Rollover Common Option shall be equal to $1.00 minus the Common Exercise Price (each as proportionately adjusted for all subsequent stock splits, stock dividends and other recapitalizations), and the Original Cost of each Rollover Preferred Option shall be equal to $1,000.00 minus the Preferred Exercise Price (each as proportionately adjusted for all subsequent stock splits, stock dividends and other recapitalizations).
