Membership Interest upon the occurrence of any of the foregoing events is not
unreasonable under the circumstances existing as of the date hereof.

forth in this Agreement, including Section 5.6, and with the prior approval of
the Management Committee, a Member may lend money to and transact other

         4.7      Voting Rights. Except as expressly provided in this Agreement
or the Certificate, Members shall have no voting, approval or consent rights.

affirmative vote, in all matters in which a vote, approval or consent of the
Members is required, a vote, consent or approval of a Majority Interest (or, in
instances in which there are defaulting Members, non-defaulting Members who
hold a majority of the Percentage Interests held by all non-defaulting Members)
shall be sufficient to authorize or approve such act. All votes, approvals or
consents of the Members may be given or withheld, conditioned or delayed as the
Members may determine in their sole and absolute discretion.

and noticed, and wherever held, have the same validity as if taken at a meeting
duly held after regular call and notice, if a quorum is present either in
person or by proxy, and if, either before or after the meeting, each of the
Members entitled to vote, who was not present in person or by proxy, signs a
written waiver of notice or consents to the holding of the meeting or approves

record date for that action by Members having not less than the minimum number
of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take that action at a meeting
at which all Members entitled to vote on that action at a meeting were present
and voted. All such consents shall be filed with the Management Committee or
the secretary, if any, of the Company and shall be maintained in the Company
records. Any Member giving a written consent, or the Member's proxy holders,
may revoke the consent by a writing received by the Management Committee or
secretary, if any, of the Company before written consents of the number of
votes required to authorize the proposed action have been filed.

given at least ten (10) days before the consummation of the action authorized
by such approval, and (ii) prompt notice shall be given of the taking of any
other action approved by Members without a meeting by less than unanimous
written consent, to those Members entitled to vote who have not consented in
writing.

ARTICLE VI.       ALLOCATIONS OF NET PROFITS AND NET LOSSES AND DISTRIBUTIONS

         6.1      Allocations of Net Profit and Net Loss

                  A.       Net Loss. Net Loss shall be allocated first to
Outback in an amount equal to Outback's positive Capital Account balance until
such Capital Account balance has been reduced to zero, and then to the Members
in proportion to their Percentage Interests. Notwithstanding the previous
sentence, loss allocations to a Member shall be made only to the extent that
such loss allocations will not create a deficit Capital Account balance for
that Member in excess of an amount, if any, equal to such Member's share of
Company Minimum Gain. Any loss not allocated to a Member because of the
foregoing provision shall be allocated to the other Members (to the extent the
other Members are not limited in respect of the allocation of losses under this
SECTION 6.1A). Any loss reallocated under this SECTION 6.1A shall be taken into
account in computing subsequent allocations of income and losses pursuant to
this ARTICLE VI, so that the net amount of any item so allocated and the income
and losses allocated to each Member pursuant to this ARTICLE VI, to the extent
possible, shall be equal to the net amount that would have been allocated to
each such Member pursuant to this ARTICLE VI if no reallocation of losses had
occurred under this SECTION 6.1A.

                  B.       Net Profit. Net Profit shall be allocated to the
Members as follows:

                           (i)      First, Net Profit for each Fiscal Year
shall be allocated to those Members who have received distributions of
Distributable Cash for such Fiscal Year, in an amount equal to the
Distributable Cash received;

                           (ii)     Second, remaining Net Profit for each
Fiscal Year shall be allocated to the Members who have previously received
allocations of Net Loss in proportion to the cumulative allocation of Net Loss
until the Members have been allocated Net Profit equal to the prior allocations
of Net Loss;

                           (iii)    Thereafter, remaining Net Profit shall be
allocated to the Members in accordance with their Percentage Interests.

                  C.       Company Loan. If any Member shall receive an
                  allocation of Net Profit for any Fiscal Year in excess of (i)
                  the allocations of Net Loss and (ii) the distributions of
                  Distributable Cash to such Member for such Fiscal Year, then
                  the Company shall loan to such Member an amount equal to 40%
                  of such excess ("Tax Loan"). Notwithstanding the foregoing,
                  no Tax Loan shall be made or required if an allocation of Net
                  Profit in excess of (i) the allocation of Net Loss and (ii)
                  the distributions of Distributable Cash, results from or
                  arises out of (i) the sale, exchange or other disposition of
                  all or substantially all of the Company's assets or (ii) the
                  dissolution or liquidation of the Company. Any such Tax Loan
                  shall bear interest at a rate equal to the "prime rate" in
                  effect from time to time as reported in the Wall Street
                  Journal plus one percent (1%) and shall be repaid in full
                  prior to any distributions of Distributable Cash to such
                  Member.

         6.2      Special Allocations.  Notwithstanding SECTION 6.1:


                                      13
<PAGE>   20


                  A.       Minimum Gain Chargeback. If there is a net decrease
in Company Minimum Gain during any Fiscal Year, each Member shall be specially
allocated items of Company income and gain for such Fiscal Year (and, if
necessary, in subsequent fiscal years) in an amount equal to the portion of
such Member's share of the net decrease in Company Minimum Gain that is
allocable to the disposition of Company property subject to a Nonrecourse
Liability, which share of such net decrease shall be determined in accordance
with Regulations Section 1.704-2(g)(2). Allocations pursuant to this SECTION
6.2A shall be made in proportion to the amounts required to be allocated to
each Member under this SECTION 6.2A. The items to be so allocated shall be
determined in accordance with Regulations Section 1.704-2(f). This SECTION 6.2A
is intended to comply with the minimum gain chargeback requirement contained in
Regulations Section 1.704-2(f) and shall be interpreted consistently therewith.

                  B.       Chargeback of Minimum Gain Attributable to Member
Nonrecourse Debt. If there is a net decrease in Company Minimum Gain
attributable to a Member Nonrecourse Debt, during any Fiscal Year, each Member
who has a share of the Company Minimum Gain attributable to such Member
Nonrecourse Debt (which share shall be determined in accordance with
Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)(5)) shall be specially allocated items of
Company income and gain for such Fiscal Year (and, if necessary, in subsequent
Fiscal Years) in an amount equal to that portion of such Member's share of the
net decrease in Company Minimum Gain attributable to such Member Nonrecourse
Debt that is allocable to the disposition of Company property subject to such
Member Nonrecourse Debt (which share of such net decrease shall be determined
in accordance with Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)(5)). Allocations pursuant to
this SECTION 6.2B shall be made in proportion to the amounts required to be
allocated to each Member under this SECTION 6.2B. The items to be so allocated
shall be determined in accordance with Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)(4). This
SECTION 6.2B is intended to comply with the minimum gain chargeback requirement
contained in Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)(4) and shall be interpreted
consistently therewith.

                  C.       Nonrecourse Deductions. Any nonrecourse deductions
(as defined in Regulations Section 1.704-2(b)(1)) for any Fiscal Year or other
period shall be specially allocated to the Members in proportion to their
Percentage Interests.

                  D.       Member Nonrecourse Deductions. Those items of
Company loss, deduction, or Code Section 705(a)(2)(B) expenditures which are
attributable to Member Nonrecourse Debt for any Fiscal Year or other period
shall be specially allocated to the Member who bears the economic risk of loss
with respect to the Member Nonrecourse Debt to which such items are
attributable in accordance with Regulations Sections 1.704-2(b)(4) and
1.704-2(i).

                  E.       Qualified Income Offset. If a Member unexpectedly
receives any adjustments, allocations, or distributions described in
Regulations Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(4), (5) or (6), or any other event
creates a deficit balance in such Member's Capital Account in excess of such
Member's share of Company Minimum Gain, then items of Company income or gain
shall be specially allocated to such Member in an amount and manner which
complies with the "qualified income offset" rules of Regulations Section
1.704-1(b)(ii)(d).

         6.3      Code Section 704(c) Allocations. Notwithstanding any other
provision in this ARTICLE VI, in accordance with Code Section 704(c) and the
Regulations promulgated thereunder, income, gain, loss, and deduction with
respect to any property contributed to the capital of the Company shall, solely
for tax purposes, be allocated among the Members so as to take account of any
variation between the adjusted basis of such property to the Company for
federal income tax purposes and its fair market value on the date of
contribution. Allocations pursuant to this SECTION 6.3 are solely for purposes
of federal, state and local taxes. As such, they shall not affect or in any way
be taken into account in computing a Member's Capital Account or share of
profits, losses, or other items of distributions pursuant to any provision of
this Agreement.

         6.4      Allocation of Net Profits and Losses and Distributions in
Respect of a Transferred Interest. If any Economic Interest is transferred, or
is increased or decreased by reason of the admission of a new Member or
otherwise,


                                      14
<PAGE>   21


during any Fiscal Year of the Company, Net Profit or Net Loss for such Fiscal
Year shall be assigned pro rata to each day in the particular period of such
Fiscal Year to which such item is attributable (i.e., the day on or during
which it is accrued or otherwise incurred) and the amount of each such item so
assigned to any such day shall be allocated to the Member or Assignee based
upon its respective Economic Interest at the close of such day.

                  However, for the purpose of accounting convenience and
simplicity, the Company shall treat a transfer of, or an increase or decrease
in, an Economic Interest which occurs at any time during a semi-monthly period
(commencing with the semi-monthly period including the date hereof) as having
been consummated on the last day of such semi-monthly period, regardless of
when during such semi-monthly period such transfer, increase, of decrease
actually occurs (i.e., sales and dispositions made during the first fifteen
(15) days of any month will be deemed to have been made on the 15th day of the
month).

                  Notwithstanding any provision above to the contrary, gain or
loss of the Company realized in connection with a sale or other disposition of
any of the assets of the Company shall be allocated solely to the parties
owning Economic Interests as of the date such sale or other disposition occurs.

         6.5      Distributions of Distributable Cash by the Company.

                  A.       Subject to applicable law and any limitations
contained in this Agreement, all Distributable Cash of the Company shall be
distributed to the Members no less frequently than quarterly.

                  B.       Subject to ARTICLE X, all distributions of
Distributable Cash to Members shall be made in accordance with their Percentage
Interests. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event the Company receives
licensing fees or royalties or any other form of revenue for use of the
Proprietary Marks on any product sold through a channel of trade other than the
Restaurants, such licensing fees and royalties shall be distributed fifty
percent (50%) to CHC and fifty percent (50%) to Outback.

                  C.       The parties acknowledge and agree that sixteen
percent (16%) of all distributions of Distributable Cash to CHC under any
provision of this Agreement constitute payment of a royalty pursuant to Section
7c of the Sublicense Agreement.

                  D.       All distributions shall be made only to the Persons
who, according to the books and records of the Company, are the holders of
record of the Economic Interests in respect of which such distributions are
made on the actual date of distribution. Subject to SECTION 6.8, neither the
Company nor any Management Committee shall incur any liability for making
distributions in accordance with this SECTION 6.5.

         6.6      Fees to Members.

                  A.       The Company shall pay to CHC the sum of Nine Hundred
Eighty Thousand Dollars ($980,000) for its services pursuant to SECTION 5.9 and
shall pay to CHC, pursuant to the Sublicense Agreement, the sum of Twenty
Thousand Dollars ($20,000), as consideration for CHC's license of the
Proprietary Marks. Upon the opening of the Company's twentieth (20th)
Restaurant, the Company shall pay to CHC an additional Nine Hundred Eight
Thousand Dollars ($980,000) for its services pursuant to SECTION 5.9 and shall
pay to CHC, pursuant to the Sublicense Agreement, an additional Twenty Thousand
Dollars ($20,000), as additional consideration for CHC's license of the
Proprietary Marks. Outback shall contribute to the Company the funds required
under this SECTION 6.6(A) as a capital contribution.

                  B.       Subject to SECTION 5.3D(I)(A), the Company shall pay
to CHC a fee equal to one and 68/100 percent (1.68%) of each Restaurant's Net
Sales (hereinafter defined) for its services pursuant to SECTION 5.9. Subject
to


                                      15
<PAGE>   22


SECTION 5.3D(i)(a), the Company shall pay to CHC, pursuant to the Sublicense
Agreement, a royalty equal to 32/100 percent (.32%) of each Restaurant's Net
Sales. No fees shall be paid to CHC under this Section with respect to any Net
Sales derived from licensing fees or royalties or any other form of revenue
received by the Company for use of the Proprietary Marks on any product sold
through a channel of trade other than the Restaurants. The fee shall be paid
monthly, within ten business days after each calendar month.

                  C.       The Company shall pay to Outback an accounting and
supervision fee equal to one and six tenths percent (1.6%) of each Restaurant's
Net Sales. The accounting and supervision fee shall be paid monthly within ten
business days after each calendar month.

                  D.       The fees provided for in this SECTION 6.6 shall not
be considered distributions of Distributable Cash to the Members.

                  E.       Net Sales shall mean all revenue (net of credit card
processing fees) from the sale of all services and products and all other
income of every kind and nature related to each Restaurant, whether for cash or
credit and regardless of collection in the case of credit; provided, however,
that "net sales" shall not include (i) any sales taxes or other taxes collected
from customers for transmittal to the appropriate taxing authority or (ii) any
sales recorded for control purposes but for which no payment is received.

         6.7      Form of Distribution. Except as provided in SECTION 10.4, a
Member, regardless of the nature of the Member's Capital Contribution, has no
right to demand and receive any distribution from the Company in any form other
than cash. Except as provided in SECTION 10.4, no Member may be compelled to
accept from the Company a distribution of any asset in kind in lieu of a
proportionate distribution of money being made to other Members and no Member
may be compelled to accept a distribution of any asset in kind.

         6.8      Restriction on Distributions. No distribution of
Distributable Cash shall be made if, after giving effect to the distribution,
all liabilities of the Company, other than liabilities to Members on account of
their Membership Interests and liabilities for which the recourse of creditors
is limited to specified property of the Company, exceed the fair value of the
assets of the Company, except that the fair value of property that is subject
to a liability for which the recourse of creditors is limited shall be included
in the assets of the Company only to the extent that the fair value of that
property exceeds that liability.

         6.9      Return of Distributions. A Member who receives a distribution
in violation of SECTION 6.8, and who knew at the time of the distribution that
the distribution violated SECTION 6.8, shall be liable to the Company for the
amount of the distribution. A Member who receives a distribution in violation
of SECTION 6.8, and who did not know at the time of the distribution that the
distribution violated SECTION 6.8, shall not be liable for the amount of the
distribution. A Member who receives a distribution shall have no liability for
the amount of the distribution after the expiration of three (3) years from the
date of the distribution unless an action to recover the distribution from such
Member is commenced prior to the expiration of said three (3)-year period and
an adjudication of liability against such Member is made in the said action.

         6.10     Obligations of Members to Report Allocations. The Members are
aware of the income tax consequences of the allocations made by this ARTICLE VI
and SECTION 10.4 and hereby agree, unless otherwise required by law or by
agreement with government authorities, to report their shares of Company income
and loss for income tax purposes in accordance with the terms of this
Agreement.

ARTICLE VII.      TRANSFER AND ASSIGNMENT OF INTERESTS

         7.1      Transfer and Assignment of Interests.


                                      16
<PAGE>   23


                  A.       General Restriction. Except as otherwise provided in
this ARTICLE VII, a Member shall not be entitled to transfer, assign, convey,
sell, encumber or in any way alienate all or any part of its Membership
Interest (collectively, "transfer") except with the prior written consent of
all Members, which consent may be given or withheld, conditioned or delayed, as
the Members may determine in their sole and absolute discretion.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no transfer whatsoever
shall be made to any person or entity (i) that is a competitor of the
non-Transferor Member, or (ii) has a character or reputation that would, in the
reasonable opinion of the non-Transferor Member, adversely impact the Company
or its business.

                  B.       Transfers of Interests in Members. Without limiting
the generality of the foregoing, the sale or exchange of at least twenty
percent (20%) of the equity or voting stock of a Member, if a Member is a
corporation, or the transfer of an interest or interests of at least twenty
percent (20%) in the capital or profits or voting interest of a Member (whether
accomplished by the sale or exchange of interests or by the admission of new
partners or members), if a Member is a partnership or limited liability
company, or the cumulative transfer of such interests in a Member which
effectively equal the foregoing (including transfer of interests followed by
the incorporation of a Member and subsequent stock transfers, or transfers of
stock followed by the liquidation of a Member and subsequent transfers of
interests) will be deemed to constitute an assignment of a Membership Interest
subject to this ARTICLE VII. After the consummation of any transfer of any part
of a Membership Interest, the Membership Interest so transferred shall continue
to be subject to the terms and provisions of this Agreement and any further
transfers shall be required to comply with all the terms and provisions of this
Agreement.

                  C.       Improper Transfers Void. Transfers in violation of
this ARTICLE VII shall be null and void and the transferee shall not become a
Member or Assignee.

         7.2      Further Restrictions on MHI's Principals. CHC, MHI and the
MHI's Principals acknowledge and agree that Outback has entered into this
Agreement in reliance on the agreement of the MHI Principals to restrict
transfer of ownership interests in MHI, Jimmy Buffett and John Cohlan hereby
represent and warrant to Outback that Jimmy Buffett and John Cohlan are members
and managers on the governing board of MHI, and that Jimmy Buffett is the owner
of a majority of the membership interests of MHI. The ownership of a majority
of the member interests of MHI by Jimmy Buffett is a material inducement to
Outback entering into this Agreement. Except as provided in SECTION 7.4, Jimmy
Buffett and John Cohlan hereby covenant and agree that they shall not, in any
manner, transfer, alienate or encumber any of the member interests, or other
voting or ownership interest, in MHI without the prior written consent of
Outback, which consent may be granted or denied in Outback's sole discretion.
Further, MHI, Jimmy Buffett and John Cohlan hereby covenant and agree that they
shall not in any manner allow any action to be taken that would result in Jimmy
Buffett, individually, having insufficient voting power to control all material
matters submitted to a vote of MHI's members that relate to CHC or the Company.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the MHI Principals may make such transfers of
interests in MHI if, prior to such transfer, Jimmy Buffett, individually,
acquires and maintains majority ownership of CHC and sufficient voting power to
control all material matters submitted to a vote of CHC's members, and
following any such transfer, the provisions of this SECTION 7.2 shall apply
with respect to Jimmy Buffett's ownership of CHC.

         7.3      Further Restrictions on Transfer of Interests. In addition to
other restrictions found in this Agreement, no Member shall transfer all or any
part of its Membership Interest:

                  A.       Without compliance with all federal and state
securities law, and

                  B.       If the Membership Interest to be transferred, when
added to the total of all other Membership Interests transferred in the
preceding twelve (12) consecutive months prior thereto, would cause the tax
termination of the Company under Code Section 708(b)(1)(B).


                                      17
<PAGE>   24


         7.4      Permitted Transfers.

                  A.       A Membership Interest may be transferred to any
other Member, subject to compliance with SECTION 7.2 AND 7.3, and without the
prior written consent of the other Members as required by SECTION 7.1.

                  B.       Subject to the restrictions of SECTION 7.2: Jimmy
Buffett and John Cohlan may make bona fide gifts of interests in MHI to their
respective family members, or to one or more trusts for the benefit of their
family members, for estate planning purposes provided that Jimmy Buffett
remains in compliance with SECTION 7.2 hereof.

         7.5      Effective Date of Permitted Transfers. Any permitted transfer
of all or any portion of a Membership Interest or an Economic Interest shall be
effective as of the date provided in SECTION 6.4 following the date upon which
the requirements of SECTIONS 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3 have been met. The Management
Committee shall provide the Members with written notice of such transfer as
promptly as possible after the requirements of SECTIONS 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3 have
been met. Any transferee of a Membership Interest shall take subject to the
restrictions on transfer imposed by this Agreement.

         7.6      Substitution of Members. An Assignee shall have the right to
become a substitute Member only if (i) the requirements of SECTIONS 7.1, 7.2
AND 7.3 hereof are met, (ii) the Assignee executes an instrument satisfactory
to the Management Committee accepting and adopting the terms and provisions of
this Agreement, and (iii) the Assignee pays any reasonable expenses in
connection with its admission as a new Member. The admission of an Assignee as
a substitute Member shall not result in the release of the Member which
assigned the Membership Interest from any liability that such Member may have
to the Company.

         7.7      Rights of Legal Representatives. If a Member who is an
individual dies or is adjudged by a court of competent jurisdiction to be
incompetent to manage the Member's person or property, the Member's executor,
administrator, guardian, conservator, or other legal representative may
exercise all of the Member's rights for the purpose of settling the Member's
estate or administering the Member's property, including any power the Member
has under the Certificate or this Agreement to give an Assignee the right to
become a Member. If a Member is a corporation, trust, or other entity and is
dissolved or terminated, the powers of that Member may be exercised by its
legal representative or successor.

         7.8      No Effect to Transfers in Violation of Agreement. Any
transfer of a Membership Interest in violation of this ARTICLE VII, shall be
null and void and the transferee shall not become a Member or Assignee. The
transferee shall have no right to vote or participate in the management of the
business, property and affairs of the Company or to exercise any rights of a
Member.

                  Upon and contemporaneously with any transfer (whether arising
out of an attempted charge upon that Member's Economic Interest by judicial
process, a foreclosure by a creditor of the Member or otherwise) of a Member's
Economic Interest which does not at the same time transfer the balance of the
rights associated with the Membership Interest transferred by the Member
(including, without limitation, the rights of the Member to vote or participate
in the management of the business, property and affairs of the Company), the
Company shall purchase from the Member, and the Member shall sell to Company
for a purchase price of one hundred dollars ($100), all remaining rights and
interests retained by the Member that relate to or allow for participation in
the management of the Company or to vote on any matter submitted to Members for
a vote. Such purchase and sale shall not, however, result in the release of the
Member from any liability to the Company as a Member.

         7.9      Rights of First Refusal.

                  A.       Mutual Rights. Except for transfers pursuant to
SECTION 7.4, but subject to SECTION 7.1, 7.2 AND 7.3, if a Member (or any
Member Parent) (each a "Transferor") desires to transfer not more than 20% of


                                      18
<PAGE>   25


his or its Membership Interest (or, in the case of a Member Parent not more
than 20% of his or its Membership Interest or other voting or ownership
interest in CHC or Outback) to any person or entity, the Transferor shall,
prior to any such Transfer, give the Management Committee written notice of
such desire ("Notice of Transfer"), which notice shall specify the Membership
Interest to be transferred (for purposes of SECTION 7.9A AND 7.9B, "Membership
Interest" shall also mean, in the case of a Member Parent, any membership
interest or other voting or ownership interest in a Member), the identity of
the proposed transferee, the purchase price for the Membership Interest and the
terms for payment of said price, including the treatment of Company liabilities
and the Transferor's liability therefore ("Purchase Price"). Any purported
Notice of Transfer that does not comply with the requirements of this SECTION
7.9A shall be null and void and of no effect hereunder. The Management
Committee shall immediately notify the Members of such Notice of Transfer. Upon
receipt of a proper Notice of Transfer, the other Members shall thereupon have
the right to acquire the portion of the Transferor's Membership Interest as is
specified in the Notice of Transfer, on terms identical to the Purchase Price.
In the event the Purchase Price contains terms that the other Members cannot
reasonably duplicate, the Members shall have the right to substitute the
reasonable cash equivalent thereof. The other Members shall have the right to
purchase the Transferor's Membership Interest specified in the Notice of
Transfer in proportion to the other Member's Percentage Interests or in such
other proportions as the other Members agree.

                  B.       Exercise of Rights.

                           (i)      The purchasing Member(s) shall exercise the
right of first refusal contained herein by mailing written notice thereof
("Notice of Election") to the Transferor within forty (40) days of mailing of
the Notice of Transfer. In the event no purchasing Member(s) mail a Notice of
Election to the Transferor within said 40-day period, the purchase option
contained herein shall lapse (except as otherwise provided in SECTION 7.10). In
the event a Member timely exercises the purchase option contained herein, such
Member shall mail written notice to the Transferor of whether the Member has
elected to purchase the entire Membership Interest of the Transferor or such
portion as was specified in the Notice of Transfer, if less; such notice to be
mailed within ten (10) days of the mailing of the Notice of Election.

                           (ii)     The closing for any purchase hereunder
shall be consummated and closed in the Company's principal office on a date and
at a time designated by the purchasing Member in a notice to the Transferor,
provided such consummation and closing date shall occur within ninety-five (95)
days from the date of mailing of the Notice of Election. At such closing, the
Transferor shall execute and deliver all documents and instruments as are
necessary and appropriate, in the opinion of counsel for the Company, to
effectuate the transfer of the Transferor's Membership Interest in accordance
with the terms of the Notice of Transfer and the purchasing Member shall
deliver the Purchase Price.

         7.10     Transfer Permitted After Failure to Elect. Subject to the
foregoing sentence and to SECTION 7.1, 7.2 AND 7.3, in the event a Member does
not elect pursuant to SECTION 7.9 to exercise the purchase option specified
therein, or in the event the closing for any purchase pursuant to SECTION 7.9
does not occur within the time limits specified therein, then the Transferor
shall be free to transfer the exact portion of his, her, or its Membership
Interest as was specified in the Notice of Transfer to the person or entity
identified in the Notice of Transfer in exchange for the exact Purchase Price
as was specified in the Notice of Transfer; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the closing
and consummation of such transfer shall occur within one hundred thirty (130)
days after the date of mailing of the Notice of Transfer and provided further
that such transfer must comply with all other requirements of this Article VII.
In the event such transfer is not so closed and consummated within such period,
the purchase option granted in SECTION 7.9 shall again be exercisable and the
Transferor shall make no Transfer of any portion of his Membership Interest, or
any right, title or interest therein, until such Transferor has again complied
with all terms and provisions of this ARTICLE VII. In the event a Member does
not elect pursuant to SECTION 7.9 to exercise the purchase option contained
therein and the Transferor makes a permitted Transfer in


                                      19
<PAGE>   26


compliance with the terms and provisions of this ARTICLE VII, then the person
or entity to whom such Membership Interest is transferred shall nevertheless
acquire such Membership Interest subject to the restriction imposed on such
Membership Interest under this ARTICLE VII as to further transfers of such
Membership Interest, and provided further that any such transferee shall agree
in writing to be bound by all terms and provisions of this Agreement.

ARTICLE VIII.     CESSATION OF DEVELOPMENT

         8.1      Cessation of Development. For purposes of this Agreement the
Company shall be deemed to have ceased development if (i) during the first
three (3) years from the date of this Operating Agreement the Company has not,
in any period of eighteen (18) consecutive months, executed a lease or purchase
contract for a new Restaurant, or, in any period of twenty-four (24)
consecutive months, opened a new Restaurant; or (ii) the Company has not, in
any period of twenty-four (24) consecutive months beginning after the
expiration of three (3) years from the date of this Operating Agreement, opened
three (3) new Restaurants.

         8.2      Consequences of Cessation. If the Company ceases development,
the Company shall continue in existence and:

                  A.       CHC shall have the exclusive right and option to
purchase the entire (and not less than the entire) Member Interest of Outback,
for its Fair Market Value.

                  B.       Determination of Fair Market Value. For the purposes
of this SECTION 8.2, the "Fair Market Value" of the Membership Interest at
issue shall be determined in the following manner:

                           (i)      Outback and CHC shall in good faith attempt
to agree upon the Fair Market Value of Outback's Membership Interest within ten
(10) days following Outback's receipt of CHC's notice of exercise of its
purchase option. If there is no agreement on the Fair Market Value, Outback and
CHC shall in good faith attempt to agree upon a mutually acceptable appraiser
within fifteen (15) days following the date of the notice of exercise. In the
event they fail to so agree, two (2) appraisers shall be appointed within
thirty (30) days following the date of the notice of exercise, one by Outback,
and one by CHC. If Outback, on the one hand, or CHC, on the other hand, fail to
appoint an appraiser within the thirty (30) day period specified herein, the
sole appraiser appointed within such thirty (30) day period shall be the sole
appraiser for the purposes of determining Fair Market Value of Outback's
Membership Interest to be purchased pursuant to this SECTION 8.2. Outback and
CHC shall promptly provide notice of the name of the appraiser so appointed by
such party to the other. The initial two appraisers shall in good faith attempt
to agree on the appointment of a third appraiser within fifteen (15) days of
the expiration of the thirty (30) day period. If the first two appraisers fail
to agree upon a third appraiser within such fifteen (15) day period, either
Outback or CHC may demand the appointment of an appraiser be made by the then
director of the Regional Office of the American Arbitration Association located
nearest to Orlando, Florida, in which event the appraiser appointed thereby
shall be the third appraiser. Each of the appraisers shall submit to Outback
and CHC, within thirty (30) days after the final appraiser has been appointed
("Appraisal Period"), a written appraisal (the "Appraisal") of the Fair Market
Value of Outback's Membership Interest.

                           (ii)     In connection with any appraisal conducted
pursuant to this Agreement, the parties hereto agree that any appraiser
appointed hereunder shall be given full access during normal business hours to
all information required and relevant to a valuation of Outback's Membership
Interest.

                           (iii)    If three appraisers are appointed, the Fair
Market Value of Outback's Membership Interest in question shall be equal to the
numerical average of three appraised determinations; provided, however, that if
the difference between any two appraisals is not more than ten percent (10%) of
the lower of the two, and the third


                                      20
<PAGE>   27


appraisal differs by more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the lower of the
other two appraisals, the numerical average of such two appraisals shall be
determinative.

                           (iv)     Any appraiser, to be qualified to conduct
an appraisal hereunder, shall be an independent appraiser (i.e., not affiliated
with Outback, its officers, directors or controlling persons, CHC or the MHI
Principals), an M.A.I. appraiser or its equivalent, and shall be reasonably
competent as an expert to appraise the value of the Membership Interest. If any
appraiser initially appointed under this Agreement shall, for any reason, be
unable to serve, a successor appraiser shall be promptly appointed in
accordance with the procedures pursuant to which the predecessor appraiser was
appointed.

                  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the determination of the
Fair Market Value of Outback's Membership Interest by appraisal is not
completed and all appraisal reports delivered as provided herein within the
Appraisal Period, then all closing, payment, and similar dates subsequent
thereto shall be automatically extended one (1) day for each day delivery of
the appraisal reports is delayed beyond the end of the Appraisal Period.

                           (v)      The cost of the appraiser appointed by each
party shall be borne by each such party. The cost of the third appraiser, if
any, or the sole appraiser, in the event Outback and CHC mutually agree upon a
single appraiser, shall be borne equally by Outback and CHC.

                  C.       Exercise of Rights.

                           (i)      CHC shall exercise the purchase option
contained herein by giving written notice thereof ("Notice of Election") to
Outback within sixty (60)days of the date of cessation of development (being
the first day of the calendar month following the expiration of the applicable
period). If not timely and properly exercised as provided in this Section,
CHC's purchase option shall lapse and shall thereafter be null and void.

                           (ii)     The closing for any purchase hereunder
shall be consummated and closed in the Company's principal office on a date and
at a time designated by CHC in a notice to Outback, provided such consummation
and closing date shall occur within ninety (90) days from the end of the
Appraisal Period. At such closing, Outback shall execute and deliver all
documents and instruments as are necessary and appropriate, in the opinion of
counsel for the Company, to effectuate the transfer of Outback's Membership
Interest and CHC shall deliver the purchase price.

         8.3      Purchase Option on Acquisition of Control. In event any
person or group of persons acting in concert (other than (i) a person or group
that includes existing members of OSI's executive management as active
participants or (ii) institutional investors who do not take an active role in
management of OSI) acquires sufficient capital stock of OSI to control OSI (but
in no event shall control be deemed to exist with ownership of less than thirty
percent (30%) of OSI's capital stock), CHC shall have the exclusive right and
option to purchase the entire (and not less than the entire) Membership
Interest of Outback for its Fair Market Value. For purposes of this SECTION 8.3
Fair Market Value shall have the same meaning and be determined in the same
manner as provided in SECTION 8.2B. The purchase option provided herein shall
be subject to the same terms and conditions as provided in SECTION 8.2C
(substituting "ninety (90) days from acquisition of control" for "ninety (90)
days of cessation of development" in SECTION 8.2C(I)).

ARTICLE IX.       ACCOUNTING, RECORDS, REPORTING BY MEMBERS

         9.1      Books and Records. The books and records of the Company shall
be kept, and the financial position and the results of its operations recorded,
in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). The books
and records of the Company shall reflect all the Company transactions and shall
be appropriate and adequate for the Company's business. The Company shall
maintain at its principal office all of the following:

the internal affairs of the Company for at least the current and past four (4)
Fiscal Years.

         9.2      Delivery to Members and Inspection.

                  A.       Upon the request of any Member or Assignee,
President shall promptly deliver to the requesting Member or Assignee, at the
expense of the Company, a copy of the information required to be maintained
under SECTION 9.1.

                  B.       Each Member, Committee Member and Assignee has the
right, upon reasonable request for purposes reasonably related to the interest
of the Person as Member, Committee Member or Assignee, to:

                           (i)      inspect and copy during normal business

annually, at Outback's expense, information necessary for the preparation of
the Members' and Assignees' federal and state income tax returns. The
Management Committee shall send or cause to be sent to each Member or Assignee
within sixty (60) days after the end of each taxable year such information as
is necessary to complete federal and state income tax or information returns,
and a copy of the Company's federal, state, and local income tax or information
returns for that year.

         9.4      Financial and Other Information. The Management Committee
shall provide such financial and other information relating to the Company or
any other Person in which the Company owns, directly or indirectly, an equity
interest, as a Member may request.

         9.5      Filings. Outback, at Outback's expense, shall cause the
income tax returns for the Company to be prepared and timely filed with the
appropriate authorities. Outback, , at Company expense, shall also cause to be
prepared and timely filed, with appropriate federal and state regulatory and
administrative bodies, amendments to, or restatements of, the Certificate and
all reports required to be filed by the Company with those entities under the
Act or other then current applicable laws, rules, and regulations. If a
Committee Member is required by the Act to execute or file any document fails,

any other Committee Member or Member may prepare, execute and file that
document.

         9.6      Bank Accounts. The Management Committee shall maintain the

Company (at Outback's expense) in connection with all examinations of the
Company's affairs by tax authorities, including resulting judicial and
administrative proceedings, and shall expend the Company funds for professional
services and costs associated therewith. The Tax Matters Partner shall oversee
the Company tax affairs in the overall best interests of the Company but shall
not have the right to agree to extend any statute of limitations without the
approval of a Majority Interest. If for any reason the Tax Matters Partner can
no longer serve in that capacity or ceases to be a Member, as the case may be,
a Majority Interest may designate another Member to be Tax Matters Partner.

                  A.       Exercise of Rights.

                           (i)      CHC shall exercise the purchase option

Interest and CHC shall deliver the purchase price.

         10.3     Purchase Option on Proposed Sale. In the event Outback

all of the assets of the Company, which includes a transfer of the Company's

                  A.       Exercise of Rights.

                           (i)      CHC shall exercise the purchase option
contained herein by giving written notice thereof ("Notice of Election") to
Outback within sixty (60) days of the date of cessation of development (being
the first day of the calendar month following the expiration of the applicable

documents and instruments as are necessary and appropriate, in the opinion of
counsel for the Company, to effectuate the transfer of Outback's Membership
Interest and CHC shall deliver the purchase price.

         10.4     Winding Up. Upon the occurrence of any event specified in
SECTION 10.1, the Company shall continue solely for the purpose of winding up
its affairs in an orderly manner, liquidating its assets, and satisfying the
claims of its creditors. The Management Committee shall be responsible for
overseeing the winding up and liquidation of Company,


                                      24
<PAGE>   31


shall take full account of the liabilities of Company and assets, shall,
subject to SECTION 10.4, either cause its assets to be sold or distributed, and
if sold as promptly as is consistent with obtaining the fair market value
thereof, shall cause the proceeds therefrom, to the extent sufficient therefor,
to be applied and distributed as provided in SECTION 10.4. The Persons winding
up the affairs of the Company shall give written notice of the commencement of
winding up by mail to all known Members, creditors and claimants whose
addresses appear on the records of the Company. The Management Committee or
Members winding up the affairs of the Company shall not be entitled to
compensation for such services.

         10.5     Distributions in Kind. Any non-cash asset distributed to one
or more Members shall first be valued at its fair market value to determine the
Net Profit or Net Loss that would have resulted if such asset were sold for
such value, such Net Profit or Net Loss shall then be allocated pursuant to
ARTICLE VI, and the Members' Capital Accounts shall be adjusted to reflect such
allocations. The amount distributed and charged to the Capital Account of each
Member receiving an interest in such distributed asset shall be the fair market
value of such interest (net of any liability secured by such asset that such
Member assumes or takes subject to). The fair market value of such asset shall
be determined by the Management Committee or by the Members or if any Member
objects by an independent appraiser (any such appraiser must be recognized as
an expert in valuing the type of asset involved) selected by the Management
Committee or liquidating trustee and approved by the Members.

         10.6     Order of Payment Upon Dissolution. After determining that all
known debts and liabilities of the Company, including, without limitation,
debts and liabilities to Members who are creditors of the Company, have been
paid or adequately provided for, the remaining assets shall be distributed as
follows:

                  A.       Upon dissolution of the Company (other than in
connection with a sale of all or substantially all of the Company's assets to a
third party and other than in connection with a termination resulting from one
Member's purchase of all or part of the other Member's Membership Interest),
all assets of the Company shall be liquidated; provided, however, that no
transfer of the License to the Proprietary Marks shall be made except in
connection with and as part of a sale of the Restaurants to a purchaser who
will continue to operate the Restaurants as Cheeseburger in Paradise
Restaurants. All proceeds from liquidation of the Company assets shall be
distributed (i) to Outback until Outback shall have received an amount equal to
Outback's Capital Contributions, and (ii) then to the Members in accordance
with and to the extent of their positive Capital Account balances after giving
effect to the allocation of Net Profit or Net Loss resulting from such
liquidation, and (iii) thereafter to the Members in accordance with their
Percentage Interests. Such liquidating distributions shall be made by the end
of the Company's taxable year in which the Company is liquidated, or, if later,
within ninety (90) days after the date of such liquidation.

                  B.       Upon dissolution of the Company in connection with a
sale of all or substantially all of the Company's assets to a third party all
proceeds from liquidation of the Company's assets shall be distributed to the
Members in accordance with and to the extent of their positive Capital Account
balances after giving effect to the allocation of Net Profit or Net Loss
resulting from such liquidation, and (iii) thereafter, to the Members in
accordance with their Percentage Interests. Such liquidating distributions
shall be made by the end of the Company's taxable year in which the Company is
liquidated, or, if later, within ninety (90) days after the date of such
liquidation.

                           Notwithstanding the provisions of Article VI, Net
Loss, Net Profit and, to the extent necessary, items of gross income or
deduction for such Fiscal Year shall be allocated to the Members in order to
ensure that the distributions made pursuant to this SECTION 10.6 are in
accordance with the positive Capital Account balances of the Members (after
taking into account all appropriate adjustments to the Capital Accounts,
including adjustments that would be made as a result of such distributions).

                  10.7     Limitations on Payments Made in Dissolution. Except
for the liability of the Management Committee pursuant to SECTION 5.4 or as
otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement, each Member shall only be
entitled to


                                      25
<PAGE>   32


look solely at the assets of the Company for the return of its
Capital Contributions and positive Capital Account balance and shall have no
recourse for its Capital Contribution, positive Capital Account balance and/or
share of Net Profits (upon dissolution or otherwise) against the Management
Committee or any other Member.

ARTICLE XI.       INDEMNIFICATION AND INSURANCE

         11.1     Indemnification of Agents. Unless the Committee Members may
be liable to the Company for any event described in SECTION 5.4, the Company
shall defend and indemnify any Member or Committee Member and may indemnify any
other Person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any
threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding by reason of the
fact that it, he or she is or was a Member, Committee Member, officer, employee
or other agent of the Company or that, being or having been such a Member,
Committee Member, officer, employee or agent, it, he or she is or was serving
at the request of the Company as a manager, member, director, officer, employee
or other agent of another limited liability company, corporation, partnership,
joint venture, trust or other enterprise (all such persons being referred to
hereinafter as an "agent"), to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law
in effect on the date hereof and to such greater extent as applicable law may
hereafter from time to time permit. The Management Committee shall be
authorized, on behalf of the Company, to enter into indemnity agreements from
time to time with any Person entitled to be indemnified by the Company
hereunder, upon such terms and conditions as the Management Committee deems
appropriate in its business judgment.

         11.2     Insurance. The Company shall purchase and maintain insurance
on behalf of all Committee Members and may do so for any Person who is or was
an agent of the Company against any liability asserted against such Committee
Member or Person and incurred by such Committee Member or Person in any such
capacity, or arising out of such Person's status as an agent, whether or not
the Company would have the power to indemnify such Person against such
liability under the provisions of SECTION 11.1 or under applicable law.

ARTICLE XII.      CONFIDENTIALITY AND NON-COMPETITION

         12.1     Noncompetition.

                  A.       So long as CHC is a Member and for a period of three
(3) years commencing upon the date CHC ceases to be a Member, CHC, MHI and the
MHI Principals (and their respective Affiliates) shall not, individually or
jointly with others, directly or indirectly, whether for their own account or
for that of any other Person, operate, engage in, own or hold any ownership
interest in, have any interest in or lend any assistance to any restaurant, or
Person or entity engaged in a business owning, operating or controlling
restaurants which have a theme, decor, menu, identifying marks, or style of
cuisine the same as or similar to the Company's Restaurants, and shall not act
as an officer, director, employee, partner, independent contractor, consultant,
principal, agent, or in any other capacity for, nor lend any assistance
(financial or otherwise) or cooperation to any such restaurant or Person or
entity; provided, however, it shall not be a violation of this Section for CHC,
MHI and/or the MHI Principals to own, in the aggregate, not more than one
percent (1%) of the outstanding shares of any class of securities traded on the
New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange or the NASD National
Market System. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if CHC ceases to be a Member for
any reason other than (i) a purchase of CHC's Member Interest, or (ii) a sale
of all or substantially all of the Company's assets, or (iii) any merger,
reorganization, recapitalization, reverse merger or other similar transaction
involving the Company, the foregoing restriction on CHC, MHI and the MHI
Principals shall apply for a period of one (1) year from the date CHC ceases to
be a Member. The parties acknowledge and agree that MHI currently holds an
interest in the Margaritaville restaurant concept with locations in New
Orleans, Key West and Orlando (Universal Studios). Outback agrees that the
Margaritaville restaurant concept as currently operated in Orlando (Universal
Studios) with the following criteria: (i) a large scale "eatertainment" concept
with entertainment elements constructed as part of the interior of the
building, (ii) featuring live entertainment, (iii) having a size of not less
than 7,500 square feet, and (iv) having an interior improvement cost (excluding
cost of land and building) of not less than


                                      26
<PAGE>   33


$300 per square foot, is not competitive with the Company's Restaurants and
will not violate this SECTION 12.1A. MHI and the MHI Principals shall have the
right to continue to operate the Margaritaville restaurants in New Orleans, Key
West and Orlando (Universal Studios) and open additional "Margaritaville"
restaurants which meet all the criteria specified in (i) through (iv), but
shall not have the right to operate or license others to operate any
Margaritaville restaurant (other than the New Orleans and Key West locations)
that does not meet all the criteria of (i) through (iv). Notwithstanding the
foregoing, MHI and the MHI Principals shall have the right to operate or
license others to operate Margaritaville restaurants which meet the criteria of
(i), (ii) and (iii), but not (iv), in the Caribbean, which shall mean the
countries of Jamaica, Cayman Islands, St. Lucia, Dominican Republic, Dominica,
Barbados, Antigua, Grenada, St. Maarten, Turks and Caicos Islands, British
Virgin Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands and Cuba.

                  B.       So long as Outback is a Member, and for a period of
one (1) year thereafter, Outback (and its Affiliates) shall not, individually
or jointly with others, directly or indirectly, whether for its own account or
for that of any other Person, operate, engage in, own or hold any ownership
interest in, have any interest in or lend any assistance to, any restaurant
having a theme, decor, menu or style of cuisine the same as or similar to the
Company's Restaurants.

         12.2     Confidentiality.

                  A.       Definition. For the purpose of this Agreement,
"Proprietary Information" shall include all information designated by any
Member, either orally or in writing, as confidential or proprietary, or which
reasonably would be considered proprietary or confidential to the business
contemplated by this Agreement, including but not limited to suppliers,
customers, trade or industrial practices, marketing and technical plans,
technology, personnel, organization or internal affairs, plans for products and
ideas, recipes, menus, wine lists and proprietary techniques and other trade
secrets. Notwithstanding the foregoing, "Proprietary Information" shall not
include information which (i) has entered the public domain or became known
other than due to a breach of any obligation of confidentiality owed to the
owner of such information; (ii) was known by the recipient prior to the
disclosure of such information; (iii) became known to the recipient from a
source other than a Member or its Affiliate, provided there was no breach of an
obligation of confidentiality owed to said Member or its Affiliate; or (iv) was
independently developed by the party receiving such information.

                  B.       No Disclosure, Use, or Circumvention. No Member or
its Affiliates shall disclose any Proprietary Information to any third parties
(other than their professional and financial advisors and other than existing
or permitted franchisees) and will not use any Proprietary Information in that
Member's or Affiliate's business or any affiliated business without the prior
written consent of the other Member, and then only to the extent specified in
that consent. Consent may be granted or withheld at the sole discretion of any
Member. No Member shall contact any suppliers, customers, employees, affiliates
or associates to circumvent the purposes of this provision.

                  C.       Maintenance of Confidentiality. Each Member shall
take all steps reasonably necessary or appropriate to maintain the strict
confidentiality of the Proprietary Information and to assure compliance with
this Agreement.

         12.3     Non-solicitation. During the term of this Agreement and, with
respect to each Member, for a period two (2) years following the earlier of (A)
the date that the Member transfers all of its Membership Interest in the
Company or (B) the dissolution of the Company pursuant to ARTICLE X, the Member
shall not offer employment to any employee of the Company or of a Member, or
their Affiliates, or otherwise solicit or induce any employee of any of them to
terminate their employment, nor shall any of the MHI Principals or the officers
and directors of Outback act as an officer, director, employee, partner,
independent contractor, consultant, principal, agent, proprietor, owner or part
owner, or in any other capacity, for any person or entity which solicits


                                      27
<PAGE>   34


or otherwise induces any employee of the Company or of a Member, or their
Affiliates, to terminate their employment with such entity.

         12.4     Reasonableness of Restrictions; Reformation; Enforcement. The
parties hereto recognize and acknowledge that the geographical and time
limitations contained in SECTION 12.1, 12.2 AND 12.3 hereof are reasonable and
properly required for the adequate protection of the Company's and Members'
interests. It is agreed by the parties hereto that, if any portion of the
restrictions contained in SECTION 12.1, 12.2 OR 12.3 are held to be
unreasonable, arbitrary, or against public policy, then the restrictions shall
be considered divisible, both as to the time and to the geographical area, with
each month of the specified period being deemed a separate period of time and
each radius mile or other portion of the restricted territory being deemed a
separate geographical area, so that the longest period of time and largest
geographical area shall remain effective so long as the same is not
unreasonable, arbitrary, or against public policy. The parties hereto agree
that in the event any court of competent jurisdiction determines the specified
period or the specified geographical area of the restricted territory to be
unreasonable, arbitrary, or against public policy, a lesser time period or
geographical area which is the longest period of time and largest geographical
area determined to be reasonable, nonarbitrary, and not against public policy
may be enforced. If any of the covenants contained herein are violated and if
any court action is instituted by the Company or a Member to prevent or enjoin
such violation, then the period of time during which the business activities
shall be restricted, as provided in this Agreement, shall be lengthened by a
period of time equal to the period between the date of the breach of the terms
or covenants contained in this Agreement and the date on which the decree of
the court disposing of the issues upon the merits shall become final and not
subject to further appeal.

         In the event it is necessary for the Company or a Member to initiate
legal proceedings to enforce, interpret or construe any of the covenants
contained in SECTION 12.1, 12.2 OR 12.3 hereof, the prevailing party in such
proceedings shall be entitled to receive from the nonprevailing party, in
addition to all other remedies, all costs, including reasonable attorneys'
fees, of such proceedings including appellate proceedings.

         12.5     Specific Performance. The parties agree that a breach of any
of the covenants contained SECTION 12.1, 12.2 AND 12.3 hereof will cause
irreparable injury to the Company or a Member for which the remedy at law will
be inadequate and would be difficult to ascertain. Therefore, in the event of
the breach or threatened breach of any such covenants, the Company or injured
Member shall be entitled, in addition to any other rights and remedies it may
have at law or in equity, to obtain an injunction to restrain any threatened or
actual activities in violation of any such covenants. The parties hereby
consent and agree that temporary and permanent injunctive relief may be granted
in any proceedings which might be brought to enforce any such covenants without
the necessity of proof of actual damages, and in the event the Company or
Member does apply for such an injunction, that the Company or Member has an
adequate remedy at law shall not be raised as a defense.

ARTICLE XIII.     REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

         Each Member warrants and represents to the other Member (each of which
warranties and representations shall be deemed to be a continuing warranty and
representation and covenant that such warranties and representations shall
remain true and correct at all times during the term of the Company) that:


                                      28
<PAGE>   35


         13.1     Status. If an entity, such Member is duly organized, validly
existing and in good standing under the laws of its state of formation, and
each has the power under its organizational documents and adequate authority to
execute, deliver, and perform this Agreement which upon such execution and
delivery will be a legal, valid, and binding obligation of such party
enforceable in accordance with its terms (subject only to the application of
bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency or other similar laws regarding the
rights of creditors generally and the exercise of judicial discretion in
equity).

         13.2     Due Authorization. The execution, delivery and performance of
this Agreement by a Member which is an entity have been duly authorized by all
requisite corporate, partnership or other organizational action of such party
and, as of the date hereof, do not require the consent or approval of any
Person that has not been obtained and are not in contravention of or in
conflict with any term or provision of the organizational documents of such
party.

         13.3     Other Agreements and Violations of Law. The execution,
delivery and performance of this Agreement by such Member will not breach or
constitute a default under any agreement, indenture, undertaking or other
instrument to which such party or any affiliate of such party is a party or by
which any of such persons or any of their respective properties may be bound or
affected, which breach or default would have a materially adverse effect on the
financial condition of such Member or on the financial condition, properties or
operations of the Company. Other than as contemplated by this Agreement such
execution, delivery, and performance will not result in the creation or
imposition of (or the obligation to create or impose) any lien or encumbrance
on any of the Company property nor, to the knowledge of such party, constitute
or result in the violation of any law.

         13.4     No Litigation. There is no litigation or administrative or
other proceeding or tax audit pending, or, to the knowledge of such Member,
threatened against or affecting such Member, or any of its affiliates, or any
of their respective properties, which, if determined adversely, would have a
materially adverse effect on the financial condition, properties or operations
of the Company. As of the date hereof, neither such Member, nor, to the
knowledge of such Member, any affiliate of such Member is in default with
respect to any order, writ, injunction, decree or demand of any court of other
governmental or regulatory authority which might in any way adversely affect
the Company.

ARTICLE XIV.      MISCELLANEOUS

         14.1     Complete Agreement. This Agreement and the Certificate
constitute the complete and exclusive statement of agreement among the Members
with respect to the subject matter herein and therein and replace and supersede

         14.3     Tax Consequences. Each Member acknowledges that the tax
consequences to it of investing in the Company will depend on its particular

employees, Affiliates, or consultants of any of them will be responsible or
liable for the tax consequences to it, him or her of an investment in the
Company. It, he or she will look solely to, and rely upon, its, his or her own

the Members of some or all of the tax benefits they might now receive, nor that
some of the deductions claimed by the Company or the allocations of items of

challenged by the Internal Revenue Service.

this Agreement, nor shall any provision give any third person any right of
subrogation or action over or against any party to this Agreement.

         14.7     Pronouns; Statutory References. All pronouns and all
variations thereof shall be deemed to refer to the masculine, feminine, or

business days after being deposited in the United States mail addressed to the
respective Member at its mailing address as designated in the records of the
Membership, with postage thereon prepaid, registered or certified mail, return
receipt requested, or if personally delivered or sent by overnight delivery

or request must be given shall commence to run from the date of receipt on the
return receipt or other evidence of delivery of the notice. Rejection or other

days' prior written notice thereof, each Member and its successors and assigns

Agreement to change their addresses and each shall have the right to specify as
its address any other address within the United States of America.

         14.15    Amendments. All amendments to this Agreement must be in
writing and signed by all of the Members.

         14.16    Reliance on Authority of Person Signing Agreement If a Member

required to determine the authority of the individual signing this Agreement to
make any commitment or undertaking on behalf of such entity or to determine any
fact or circumstance bearing upon the existence of the authority of such
individual; or (B) be responsible for the application or distribution of
proceeds paid or credited to individuals signing this Agreement on behalf of
such entity.

         14.17    Company Property. All property contributed to the Company or
acquired with Company funds shall be held and titled in the name of the Company
and not individually by or for any Member.

         14.18    Multiple Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in two
or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of
which shall constitute one and the same instrument.

         14.19    Attorney's Fees. In the event that any dispute between the

arbitration, the prevailing party in such dispute shall be entitled to recover
from the other party all reasonable fees, costs and expenses of enforcing any
right of the prevailing party, including without limitation, reasonable
attorneys' fees and expenses, all of which shall be deemed to have accrued upon
the commencement of such action and shall be paid whether or not such action is
prosecuted to judgment. Any judgment or order entered in such action shall
contain a specific provision providing for the recovery of attorney's fees and
costs incurred in enforcing such judgment and an award of prejudgment interest
from the date of the breach at the maximum rate of interest allowed by law. For

cumulative and shall not exclude any other remedies to which any Party may be
lawfully entitled.

         14.22    Severability. Each article, section, subsection, and lesser
section of this Agreement constitutes a separate and distinct undertaking,
covenant or provision hereof. In the event that any provision of this Agreement
shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be
deemed limited by construction in scope and effect to the minimum extent
necessary to render the same valid and enforceable, and, in the event such a
limiting construction is impossible, such invalid or unenforceable provision
shall be deemed severed from this Agreement, but every other provision of this
Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.

         14.23    Partition. The Members hereby agree that no Members, nor any
successor in interest of any Members, shall have the right to have Company
assets partitioned, or to file a complaint or institute any proceedings of law
or equity to have a Company asset partitioned, and each Member, on behalf of
itself, its successors and assigns, hereby waives any such rights.

         14.24    No Waiver. The failure of any Member to insist upon strict
performance of a covenant hereunder or any obligation hereunder shall not be a
waiver of such Member's right to demand compliance therewith in the future.

         14.25    No Denigration. No Member shall denigrate or cause the
denigration of any other Member, the MHI Principals, ISI, the Proprietary Mark
or the Restaurants and shall not take any other action that is harmful or
potentially harmful to or which disparages, ridicules or demeans the goodwill
or reputation of any of the foregoing.

         14.26    Contingency. This Operating Agreement and the Sublicense
Agreement are contingent upon the parties reaching agreement, within ninety
(90) days of the execution of this Operating Agreement, on the final design of
the Restaurant and the use of Licensed Marks pursuant to the Sublicense
Agreement. The parties agree to cooperate and negotiate in good faith to reach
such agreement. In the event the parties cannot reach agreement on the final
design of the Restaurant and the use of the Licensed Marks within such time
period, Outback shall have the right and option to terminate this Operating
Agreement and the Sublicense Agreement by giving written notice of termination
to CHC within said ninety (90) day period. Upon such termination all fees paid
by Outback to CHC and MHI pursuant to this Operating Agreement and the
Sublicense Agreement shall be immediately refunded to Outback and thereafter
the parties shall have no further rights or obligations under this Operating
Agreement or the Sublicense Agreement.

         All of the Members of OUTBACK/CHEESEBURGER IN PARADISE, LLC, a
Delaware limited liability company, have executed this Agreement, effective as
of the date written above.
