The Investor hereby represents and warrants to, and agrees with, the Corporation
that:

            4.1 AUTHORIZATION. This Agreement constitutes such Investor's valid
and legally binding obligation, enforceable in accordance with its terms except
as may be limited by (i) applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or
other laws of general application relating to or affecting the enforcement of
creditors' rights generally and (ii) the effect of rules of law governing the
availability of equitable remedies. The Investor represents that such Investor
has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement.

            4.2 PURCHASE FOR OWN ACCOUNT. The Purchased Shares to be purchased
by such Investor hereunder will be acquired for investment for such Investor's
own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the public resale
or distribution thereof within the meaning of the Securities Act, and such
Investor has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or
otherwise distributing the same. The Investor also represents that it has not
been formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the Purchased Shares.

            4.3 DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION. At no time was the Investor presented
with or solicited by any publicly issued or circulated newspaper, mail, radio,
television or other form of general advertising or solicitation in connection
with the offer, sale and purchase of the Purchased Shares. Such Investor has
received or has had full access to all the information it considers necessary or
appropriate to make an informed investment decision with respect to the
Purchased Shares to be purchased by such Investor under this Agreement. Such
Investor further has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers
from the Corporation regarding the terms and conditions of the offering of the
Purchased Shares and to obtain additional information (to the extent the
Corporation possessed such information or could acquire it without unreasonable
effort or expense) necessary to verify any information furnished to such
Investor or to which such Investor had access.

            4.4 INVESTMENT EXPERIENCE. Such Investor understands that the
purchase of the Purchased Shares involves substantial risk. Such Investor: (i)
has experience as an investor in securities of troubled and distressed companies
and acknowledges that such Investor is able to fend for itself, can bear the
economic risk of such Investor's investment in the Purchased Shares and has such
knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that such Investor is
capable of evaluating the merits and risks of this investment in the Purchased
Shares and protecting its own interests in connection with this investment
and/or (ii) has a preexisting personal or business relationship with the
Corporation and certain of its officers, directors or controlling persons of a
nature and duration that enables such Investor to be aware of the character,
business acumen and financial circumstances of such persons.

            4.5 ACCREDITED INVESTOR STATUS. Such Investor is an "accredited
investor" within the meaning of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities
Act.

            4.6 RESTRICTED SECURITIES. Such Investor understands that the
Purchased Shares are characterized as "restricted securities" under the
Securities Act inasmuch as they are being acquired from the Corporation in a
transaction not involving a public offering and that under the Securities Act
and applicable regulations thereunder such securities may be resold without
registration under the Securities Act only in certain limited circumstances. In
this connection, such Investor represents that such Investor is familiar with
Rule 144 of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), as
presently in effect, and understands the

                                       3
<PAGE>
resale limitations imposed thereby and by the Securities Act. Such Investor
understands that the Corporation is under no obligation to register any of the
securities sold hereunder except as provided in the Registration Rights
Agreement.

            4.7 FURTHER LIMITATIONS ON DISPOSITION. Without in any way limiting
the representations set forth above, such Investor further agrees not to make
any disposition of all or any portion of the Purchased Shares unless and until:

                (a) there is then in effect a registration statement under the
Securities Act covering such proposed disposition and such disposition is made
in accordance with such registration statement; or

                (b) such Investor shall have notified the Corporation of the
proposed disposition and shall have furnished the Corporation with a statement
of the circumstances surrounding the proposed disposition, and, at the expense
of such Investor or its transferee, with an opinion of counsel, reasonably
satisfactory to the Corporation, that such disposition will not require
registration of such securities under the Securities Act.

         Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs (a) and (b) above, no such
registration statement or opinion of counsel shall be required for any transfer
of any Purchased Shares in compliance with SEC Rule 144.

            4.8 "MARKET STAND-OFF" AGREEMENT. The Investor hereby agrees that it
shall not, to the extent requested by the Corporation or an underwriter of
securities of the Corporation, sell or otherwise transfer or dispose of any
Purchased Shares or other shares of stock of the Corporation then owned by such
Investor (other than to donees or partners of the Investor who agree to be
similarly bound) for up to One Hundred Eighty (180) days following the effective
date of any registration statement of the Corporation filed under the Securities
Act; provided that, notwithstanding a request by the Corporation, Investor shall
not be restricted under this Section 4.8 from selling or otherwise transferring
or disposing of any Purchased Shares or other shares of stock of the Corporation
at any time prior to the effective date of any registration statement.

         In order to enforce the foregoing covenant, the Corporation shall have
the right to place restrictive legends on the certificates representing the
shares subject to this Section and to impose stop transfer instructions with
respect to the Purchased Shares and such other shares of stock of the Investor
(and the shares or securities of every other person subject to the foregoing
restriction) until the end of such period. The Investor further agrees to enter
into any agreement reasonably required by the underwriters to implement the
foregoing within any reasonable timeframe so requested.

            4.9 LEGENDS. It is understood that the certificates evidencing the
Purchased Shares will bear the legends substantially similar to those set forth
below:

                (a) THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED
UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE "ACT"), OR UNDER THE
SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTIONS. THESE SECURITIES ARE SUBJECT TO
RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFERABILITY AND RESALE AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED OR RESOLD
EXCEPT AS PERMITTED UNDER THE ACT AND THE APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS,
PURSUANT TO REGISTRATION OR EXEMPTION THEREFROM. THE ISSUER OF THESE SECURITIES
MAY REQUIRE AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN FORM AND SUBSTANCE SATISFACTORY TO THE
ISSUER TO THE EFFECT THAT ANY PROPOSED TRANSFER OR RESALE IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH
THE ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS.

         THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO A 180 DAY
MARKET STAND-OFF RESTRICTION AS SET FORTH IN A CERTAIN

                                       4
<PAGE>
AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE ISSUER AND THE ORIGINAL HOLDER OF THESE SHARES, A COPY OF
WHICH MAY BE OBTAINED AT THE PRINCIPAL OFFICE OF THE ISSUER. AS A RESULT OF SUCH
AGREEMENT, THESE SHARES MAY NOT BE TRADED PRIOR TO 180 DAYS AFTER THE EFFECTIVE
DATE OF THE INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING OF THE COMMON STOCK OF THE ISSUER HEREOF.
SUCH RESTRICTION IS BINDING ON TRANSFEREES OF THESE SHARES.

                (b) Any legends required by applicable state securities laws.

                (c) Any legends required by any agreement(s) between the
Corporation and the Investor.

         The first legend set forth in (a) above shall be removed by the
Corporation from any certificate evidencing Purchased Shares upon delivery to
the Corporation of an opinion by counsel, reasonably satisfactory to the
Corporation, that a registration statement under the Securities Act is at that
time in effect with respect to the legended security or that such security can
be freely transferred in a public sale without such a registration statement
being in effect and that such transfer will not jeopardize the exemption or
exemptions from registration pursuant to which the Corporation issued the
Purchased Shares.
