                             PURCHASE AND SALE

         SECTION 2.01. Purchase and Sale. On the basis of the
representations, warranties, covenants and agreements and subject to the
satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in this Agreement, the
Seller shall sell, convey, transfer, assign and deliver to Acquisition Sub,
and Acquisition Sub shall purchase and accept from the Seller, on the
Closing Date, good and valid title in and to the Purchased Assets, wherever
located, free and clear of all Liens other than Permitted Exceptions. A
list of items constituting the Purchased Assets is set forth on Exhibit A
hereto.

         SECTION 2.02. Excluded Assets. The Buyer expressly understands and
agrees that none of the assets and properties of the Seller other than the
Purchased Assets (the "Excluded Assets") shall be purchased by Acquisition
Sub hereunder and the Excluded Assets shall be excluded from the Purchased
Assets. For the avoidance of doubt, the Excluded Assets shall include, but
not be limited to, the items set forth on Exhibit B hereto and all claims,
rights or causes of action related to any Excluded Asset or Excluded
Liability.

         SECTION 2.03. Assumption of Liabilities. On the basis of the
representations, warranties, covenants and agreements and subject to the
satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in this Agreement,
Acquisition Sub shall assume and, from and after the Closing Date, shall
perform only (i) the Seller's obligations in the Contracts listed on
Schedule 2.03 (other than (x) liabilities or obligations attributable to
any failure by the Seller to comply with the terms thereof prior to the
Closing Date but only to the extent that such liabilities or obligations
relate to the conduct of the Business prior to the Closing Date or (y)
liabilities or obligations which are included in Net Working Liabilities in
clause (iii) below) (each an "Assumed Contract"), (ii) any other
obligations or liabilities relating to or pertaining to the Purchased
Assets which obligations and liabilities are expressly set forth on
Schedule 2.03 except for liabilities or obligations which are included in
Net Working Liabilities in clause (iii) below and (iii) the Net Working
Liabilities ((i), (ii) and (iii) collectively, the "Assumed Liabilities").
In accordance with the indemnification provisions of Article IX hereof, the
parties expressly agree that on and after the Closing Date, the Seller and
its Affiliates will be relieved of any and all obligations or liabilities
relating to the Assumed Liabilities and the Buyer and Acquisition Sub shall
be solely responsible for the Assumed Liabilities.

         SECTION 2.04. Excluded Liabilities. All of the liabilities of the
Seller and any of its Affiliates (or any predecessor owner of all or part
of their businesses and assets) except the Assumed Liabilities are herein
referred to as the "Excluded Liabilities," and Acquisition Sub shall not
assume any such obligations or liabilities of the Business or any
liabilities attendant to any of the foregoing, of any nature whatsoever,
whether known, unknown, liquidated or contingent and whether presently in
existence or arising or asserted hereafter. For the avoidance of doubt,
Excluded Liabilities include, without limitation: (a) all liabilities and
obligations relating to Excluded Assets; (b) except to the extent provided
in Section 5.08, Tax liabilities of the Seller arising out of or
attributable to the transactions contemplated hereby or relating to the
Purchased Assets for periods up to and including the Closing Date; (c) all
liabilities or obligations attributable to any failure by the Seller to
comply with the terms of the Assumed Contracts prior to the Closing Date
but only to the extent that such liabilities or obligations relate to the
conduct of the Business prior to the Closing Date; and (d) accounts payable
arising under the Assumed Contracts prior to the Closing Date and not
included in Net Working Liabilities.

         SECTION 2.05. Assignment of Contracts and Rights. Anything in this
Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, this Agreement shall not
constitute an agreement to assign any Purchased Asset or any claim or right
or any benefit arising thereunder or resulting therefrom if an attempted
assignment thereof, without consent of a third party thereto, would
constitute a breach or other contravention thereof or in any way adversely
affect the rights of the Buyer, Acquisition Sub or the Seller thereunder.
The Seller will use its reasonable efforts (but without making any payments
or incurring out-of-pocket expenses and without commencing any legal
proceeding), and the Buyer will actively assist the Seller, to obtain the
consent of the other parties to any such Purchased Asset or claim or right
or any benefit arising thereunder for the assignment thereof to Acquisition
Sub. If such consent is not obtained, or if an attempted assignment thereof
would be ineffective or would adversely affect the rights of the Seller
thereunder so that Acquisition Sub would not in fact receive all such
rights, the Seller, the Buyer and Acquisition Sub will cooperate in a
mutually agreeable arrangement under which Acquisition Sub would obtain the
benefits and assume the obligations thereunder in accordance with this
Agreement, including, without limitation, subcontracting, sub-licensing, or
subleasing to Acquisition Sub, or under which the Seller would enforce for
the benefit of Acquisition Sub, with Acquisition Sub assuming the
applicable Seller's or Seller's obligations, any and all rights of the
Seller against a third party thereto, and any amount received by the Seller
in respect thereof shall be held for and paid over to Acquisition Sub.

         SECTION 2.06. Purchase Price; Escrow.

         (a) The purchase price for the Purchased Assets shall be
$2,630,000 (the "Purchase Price"), subject to a Purchase Price Adjustment.
The Purchase Price shall be payable by the issuance of such number of
shares of Buyer Common Stock (the "Securities"), valued at the Stock Value,
as equal the Purchase Price, subject to a Purchase Price Adjustment;
provided, however, that in the event that the Stock Value is less than
$1.30 on the Determination Date, at the Seller's election made on the
Determination Date, the Purchase Price shall be payable with a combination
of (x) cash (in whole or in part) by wire transfer of immediately available
funds (the "Cash Consideration") and/or (y) Securities (in whole or in
part), to be issued on the Closing Date, with such Securities being valued
at the Stock Value. Such Cash Consideration and such Securities shall be
subject, in each case, to a Purchase Price Adjustment. The Purchase Price,
net of any Purchase Price Adjustment, shall be paid as follows:

              (i) The Purchase Price, net of any Purchase Price Adjustment
     and less the Escrowed Consideration, shall be paid or issued, as the
     case may be, to the Seller on the Closing Date (the "Closing
     Consideration"); and

              (ii) Twenty percent (20%) of the Cash Consideration, if any,
     and twenty percent (20%) of the Securities, if any, shall be deposited
     in escrow (the "Escrowed Consideration") on the Closing Date pursuant
     to the terms of the Escrow Agreement.

              (b) The Securities shall be appropriately adjusted for any
     stock split, combination, reorganization, recapitalization,
     reclassification, stock dividend, stock distribution or similar event
     having a record date on or after the date hereof.

SECTION 2.07.     Purchase Price Adjustment

         (a) At the Closing, the Purchase Price shall be adjusted as
follows:

              (i) In the event that the Adjusted Revenue Run-Rate is less
     than the Revenue Run-Rate, the Purchase Price shall be reduced by an
     amount equal to (A) the amount of the difference between the Adjusted
     Revenue Run-Rate and the Revenue Run-Rate, multiplied by (B) 0.60.

              (ii) In the event that the Adjusted Revenue Run-Rate is
     greater than the Revenue Run-Rate, the Purchase Price shall be
     increased by an amount equal to (A) the amount of the difference
     between the Adjusted Revenue Run-Rate and the Revenue Run-Rate,
     multiplied by (B) 0.60.

         (b) Any such adjustment described in this Section 2.07 shall be a
"Purchase Price Adjustment".

         SECTION 2.08. Closing. The closing (the "Closing") of the purchase
and sale of the Purchased Assets and the assumption of the Assumed
Liabilities hereunder shall take place at the offices of the Buyer, 601
West 26th Street, New York, NY 10001, as soon as possible, but in no event
later than five Business Days after satisfaction of the conditions set
forth in Article VIII, or at such other time or place as Buyer and Seller
may agree. At the Closing:

         (a) The Buyer shall deliver the Purchase Price, net of any
Purchase Price Adjustment, in accordance with Section 2.06;

         (b) Each of the Seller and Acquisition Sub shall enter into an
Assignment and Assumption Agreement, in substantially the form attached
hereto as Exhibit D, and a Bill of Sale, in substantially the form attached
hereto as Exhibit E, and the Seller shall deliver to the Acquisition Sub
such deeds, bills of sale, endorsements, consents, assignments (including,
without limitation, trademark, trade name and domain name assignments) and
other good and sufficient instruments of conveyance and assignment (the
"Conveyance Documents") as the parties and their respective counsel shall
deem reasonably necessary or appropriate to vest in Acquisition Sub good
and valid title in and to the Purchased Assets, free and clear of all Liens
other than Permitted Exceptions; and

         (c) Each of the Seller, the Buyer and Acquisition Sub shall enter
into the other Ancillary Agreements to which it is a party.


                                ARTICLE III

                REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE SELLER

         The Seller hereby represents and warrants to the Buyer and
Acquisition Sub, subject to the exceptions specifically disclosed in
writing in the Seller's schedules as set forth below, in each case as of
the date hereof and as of the Closing Date, that:

         SECTION 3.01. Capitalization. The authorized capital stock of the
Seller consists of 42,232,611 shares of the Seller Common Stock, and
32,767,389 shares of the Seller Preferred Stock of which 23,466,794 are
designated the Seller Series A Preferred Stock and 9,300,595 are designated

the Seller Common Stock and 23,466,794 shares of the Seller Series A
Preferred Stock and 9,300,595 shares of the Seller Series B Preferred Stock
and the Seller has no other shares of capital stock authorized, issued or
outstanding. All of the outstanding shares of capital stock of the Seller
have been duly authorized, validly issued and are fully paid and
nonassessable.

         SECTION 3.02. Organization and Qualification; Subsidiaries of the
Seller. The Seller is duly organized and is validly existing and in good
standing under the Laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation and has
the requisite corporate power and authority to own, lease and operate its
properties and to carry on its business as it is now being conducted. The
Seller is duly qualified or licensed to do business, and is in good
standing, in each jurisdiction where the character of the properties owned,
leased or operated by it or the nature of its business makes such
qualification or licensing necessary, except for such failures to be so
qualified and in good standing that would not reasonably be likely to,
individually or in the aggregate, result in a Material Adverse Effect.
Except as set forth on Schedule 3.02, the Seller has no Subsidiaries that
have any interest in the Purchased Assets or conduct the Business as
currently conducted.

         SECTION 3.03. Corporate Authorization. The Seller has the
necessary corporate power and authority to execute and deliver this
Agreement and each of the Ancillary Agreements to which it is a party, to
perform its obligations hereunder and thereunder, and to consummate the
transactions contemplated hereby and thereby. The execution, delivery and
performance by the Seller of this Agreement and each of the Ancillary
Agreements to which it is a party, and the consummation by the Seller of
the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby have been duly authorized
by all necessary corporate action on the part of the Seller and no other
corporate proceedings on the part of any of the Seller are necessary to
authorize this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements or to
consummate the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby. This Agreement
and each of the Ancillary Agreements have been, or, in the case of the
Ancillary Agreements, will be, duly executed and delivered by the Seller
and constitute valid and binding agreements of the Seller, as the case may
be, enforceable against the Seller, in accordance with their respective
terms, except as the same may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency,
reorganization, moratorium or similar Laws now or hereafter in effect
relating to creditors' rights generally and subject to general principles
of equity and public policy. This Agreement and the sale of the Purchased
Assets has been approved by the Stockholder Approvals which are the
requisite vote or action of the Seller's stockholders under the Seller's
amended and restated certificate of incorporation (including, without
limitation, the certificates of designations of the Seller Preferred
Stock), by-laws and the DGCL.

         SECTION 3.04. Governmental Authorization. The execution, delivery
and performance by the Seller of this Agreement and each of the Ancillary
Agreements to which it is a party, and the consummation by the Seller of
the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, do not and will not
require any action by or in respect of, or filing with, any Governmental
Entity, except for such actions or filings the failure of which to be made
or obtained would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be
expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 3.05. Non-Contravention. The execution, delivery and
performance by the Seller of this Agreement and each of the Ancillary
Agreements to which it is a party, and the consummation by the Seller of
the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, do not and will not (i)
contravene or conflict with the certificate of incorporation or bylaws of
the Seller; (ii) contravene or conflict with or constitute a material
violation of any provision of any Law, judgment, injunction, order or
decree binding upon or applicable to the Seller or to the Business or
relating to or affecting the Purchased Assets; (iii) except as set forth on
Schedule 3.05, assuming the receipt of all Required Consents, constitute a
default under or give rise to any right of termination, cancellation or
acceleration of any right or obligation of the Seller or to a loss of any
material benefit relating to or affecting the Purchased Assets to which the
Seller is entitled under any provision of any material Assumed Contract
binding upon the Seller or by which any of the Purchased Assets is or may
be bound, or any Permit or (iv) result in the creation or imposition of any
Lien other than Permitted Exceptions on any Purchased Asset except for, in
the case of clauses (ii), (iii) and (iv), any conflict, breach,
contravention, violation, default, termination, acceleration, violation, or
Lien that would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be
expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. The Seller is not in
material default (and no event has occurred which, with notice or lapse of
time or both, would cause the Seller to be 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
Assumed Contract to which the Seller is a party.

         SECTION 3.06. Required Consents. Schedule 3.06 sets forth each
Assumed Contract requiring a consent, waiver, authorization, exemption,
filing with, or notice to, any Person or approval as a result of the
execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the Ancillary
Agreements or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and
thereby (each such consent, a "Required Consent"). Neither the execution,
delivery or performance of this Agreement or the Ancillary Agreements by
the Seller, nor the consummation by the Seller of the transactions
contemplated hereby or thereby (including, without limitation, the transfer
of the Assumed Contracts) requires any consent of, waiver by, authorization
by, exemption from, filing with, or notice to any Person, other than a
Required Consent.

         SECTION 3.07. Financial Statements. The Seller Financial
Statements were prepared in conformity with GAAP (except, in the case of
the unaudited interim financials, for the absence of footnotes and year-end
audit adjustments) and fairly present, in all material respects, the
financial position and results of operations of the Seller as of the dates,
and for the periods, referred to therein. The accounts receivable of the
Seller included in the Purchased Assets represent valid obligations arising
in the ordinary course of business from sales actually made or services
actually performed by the Seller and are not subject to any material
setoff, counterclaim or defense. The accounts receivable included in the
Purchased Assets are current and collectible net of the respective reserves
shown on Schedule 3.07. Except as indicated on Schedule 3.07, no such
account debtor has in the past, or currently, refused to pay, disputed or,
to the Knowledge of the Seller, threatened to dispute amounts presently
included in the accounts receivable included in the Purchased Assets.
Schedule 3.07 contains a complete and accurate list of all accounts
receivable included in the Purchased Assets as of September 30, 2002, which
list sets forth the aging of such accounts receivable.

         SECTION 3.08. No Undisclosed Liabilities. There are no liabilities
relating to or affecting the Purchased Assets of any kind whatsoever,
whether accrued, contingent, absolute, determined, determinable or
otherwise, and there is no existing condition, situation or set of
circumstances which could reasonably be expected to result in such a
liability other than (i) liabilities specifically disclosed in any schedule
hereto, or (ii) liabilities that, individually or in the aggregate, do not
result in a Material Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 3.09. Absence of Certain Changes. Since December 31, 2001,
except as set forth in Schedule 3.09, the Seller has utilized the Purchased
Assets in the ordinary course consistent with past practices, and there has
not been:

         (a) any Material Adverse Effect or any event, occurrence,
development or state of circumstances or facts known to the Seller which
could reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect;

         (b) any event that would reasonably be expected to prevent or
materially delay the performance of the obligations of the Seller pursuant
to this Agreement or the Ancillary Agreements;

         (c) any creation or other incurrence of any Lien other than
Permitted Exceptions on any Purchased Asset or any failure to discharge or
satisfy any such Lien or pay or satisfy any obligation or liability
(whether absolute, accrued, contingent or otherwise) relating to or
affecting the Purchased Assets;

         (d) any material damage, destruction or other casualty loss
(whether or not covered by insurance) relating to or affecting any
Purchased Asset;

         (e) any material transaction or Contract entered into by the
Seller relating to any Purchased Asset (including the acquisition or
disposition of any assets) or any relinquishment by the Seller of any such
Contract or other right relating to any Purchased Asset, in either case,
other than transactions and commitments in the ordinary course of business
consistent with past practices and those contemplated by this Agreement;

         (f) any settlement, waiver, release, assignment or compromise
relating to or affecting any action, suit, proceeding, claim arbitration or
litigation affecting the Purchased Assets;

         (g) any sale or transfer of any of the Purchased Assets
(including, without limitation, any disposition or license of any
Proprietary Rights) or cancellation of any debts or claims relating to the
Purchased Assets or waiver of any rights relating thereto; or

         (h) any authorization of, or agreement entered into or commitment
made to do any of the foregoing.

         SECTION 3.10. Title to Purchased Assets. The Seller has good and
valid title to, or enforceable leasehold interests in or valid rights under
contract to use the Purchased Assets, free and clear of any Liens, except
for Permitted Exceptions as well as Liens set forth on Schedule 3.10. Upon
consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, Acquisition Sub will
have acquired good and valid title to, or enforceable leasehold interests
in or valid rights under contract to use the Purchased Assets, free and
clear of all Liens, except for Permitted Exceptions and subject to the
Assumed Liabilities. Schedule 3.10 contains an accurate list of the owned
tangible personal property which are Purchased Assets as of the date hereof
and which comprise subsection (d) of Exhibit A. All of the material,
machinery and equipment listed on Schedule 3.10 are in good working order
and condition, ordinary wear and tear excepted. All of the Purchased Assets
located in the United States of America are located only in the State of
New York, the State of New Jersey or the State of Delaware.

         SECTION 3.11. Solvency. The Seller (i) is not insolvent, (ii) will
not be rendered insolvent by the transactions contemplated herein, (iii)
after giving effect to the transactions contemplated herein, will not be
left with unreasonably small capital with which to engage in its business,
(iv) does not intend to incur debts that will be beyond its ability to pay
as such debts mature and (v) is not subject to any Bankruptcy Event. The
board of directors of the Seller has determined, partly based on a
favorable valuation opinion received from its financial adviser, that if
the transactions contemplated hereby are consummated, the Seller would
receive not less than a reasonably equivalent value for the Purchased
Assets. For the purposes of this Agreement, "insolvent" shall mean that the
current liabilities of the Seller exceed the Seller's current assets.

         SECTION 3.12. Litigation. Except as set forth on Schedule 3.12 and
excluding routine proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
or similar offices, there is no action, suit, claim, investigation or
proceeding pending against, or to the Knowledge of the Seller, threatened
against, or relating to or affecting, any Purchased Asset before any court
or arbitrator or any governmental body, agency or official. To the
Knowledge of the Seller, there are no existing facts or circumstances that
could reasonably be expected to result in such an action, suit, claim,
investigation or proceeding. The Seller is not subject to any outstanding
order, writ, injunction or decree which could reasonably be expected to
have, individually or in the aggregate, a Material Adverse Effect or
materially interfere with the Seller's ability to consummate the
transactions contemplated hereby or by the Ancillary Agreements.

         SECTION 3.13. Material Contracts.

         (a) Except for the Contracts disclosed in Schedule 3.13(a), the
Seller is not a party to or subject to:

              (i) a source code escrow type arrangement;

              (ii) an Assumed Contract which has been modified orally or in
     writing or by course of conduct to provide for terms or conditions
     other than as set forth in the copies provided to Buyer; or

              (iii) any Assumed Contract that substantially limits the
     freedom of the Seller to compete in the line of Business or with any
     Person in the Business or in any area or to own, operate, sell,
     transfer, pledge or otherwise dispose of or encumber any Purchased
     Asset, or that would so limit the freedom of the Buyer or Acquisition
     Sub after the Closing Date.

         (b) Schedule 3.13(b) lists all Persons that were as of the date
hereof customers of the Seller pursuant to an Assumed Contract as well as
(i) the gross amount billed to each such customer for the month of
September 2002, (ii) the Monthly-Revenue Run Rate for each such customer
and (iii) the calculations used to determine each such customer's Monthly
Revenue Run-Rate including the assumed variable billings used. Schedule
3.13(b) is true, complete and correct in all respects. Except as set forth
under the heading "calculation notes" in Schedule 3.13(b), since July 1,
2002, no such customer has canceled or otherwise terminated or, to the
Knowledge of the Seller, threatened to cancel or otherwise terminate its
relationship with the Seller.

         (c) Except as set forth on Schedule 3.13(c), each Assumed Contract
is a valid and binding agreement of the Seller and is in full force and
effect, and neither of the Seller nor, to the Knowledge of the Seller, any
other party thereto, is in default in any material respect under the terms
of any Assumed Contract, nor, to the Knowledge of the Seller, has any event
or circumstance occurred that, with notice or lapse of time or both, would
constitute a material event of default thereunder.

         SECTION 3.14. Licenses and Permits. Except as set forth in Section
3.16(h)(1), the Seller has no material licenses, franchises, permits or
other similar authorizations affecting, or relating in any way to, the
Purchased Assets (the "Permits"), and no such Permits are necessary to use
the Purchased Assets.

         SECTION 3.15. Compliance with Laws. The Seller is not in violation
of, has not violated, and, to the Knowledge of the Seller, is not under
investigation with respect to or has been threatened to be charged with or
given notice of any violation of, any Law or judgment, order or decree
entered by any court, arbitrator or governmental authority, domestic or
foreign, applicable to the Purchased Assets or the conduct of the Business,
except where such violation would not reasonably be likely to result in a
Material Adverse Effect. No material violation of any Law relating to or
affecting any Purchased Asset currently exists. There are no developments
relating to or affecting any of the Purchased Assets pending or, to the
Knowledge of the Seller, threatened, which might reasonably be likely to
materially detract from the value of such Purchased Assets.

         SECTION 3.16. Proprietary Rights.

         (a) Schedule 3.16(a) contains a true and complete list of all U.S.
and foreign (i) applications and registrations related to the Seller's
Proprietary Rights, including issue and/or filing dates and (ii) material
unregistered copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names, designs,
logos and slogans that are included in the Seller's Proprietary Rights. All
of the Seller's Proprietary Rights that are registered have been duly
maintained and remain in good standing with all fees and filings due as of
the Closing Date.

         (b) The Seller's Proprietary Rights contain only those items and
rights which are: (i) owned by the Seller; or (ii) rightfully used by the
Seller pursuant to a valid and enforceable license or other agreement (the
"Seller Licensed Intellectual Property"), the parties, date, term and
subject matter of each such material license or other agreement (each, a
"License Agreement") being set forth on Schedule 3.16(b)(1). The Seller has
all rights in the Seller's Proprietary Rights necessary to carry out the
Seller's activities at the time such activities were being conducted, the
Seller's Proprietary Rights necessary to carry out the Seller's activities
of the Business, as currently conducted, including without limitation, to
the extent required to carry out such activities, rights to make, use,
reproduce, modify, adapt, create derivative works based on, translate,
distribute (directly and indirectly), transmit, display and perform
publicly, license, rent and lease and, other than with respect to Seller
Licensed Intellectual Property, assign and sell, the Seller's Proprietary
Rights (collectively, "Use"). The License Agreements are valid and binding
obligations of the Seller, enforceable in accordance with their terms, and
there exists no event or condition which will result in a material
violation or breach of, or constitute a material default by the Seller or,
to the Knowledge of the Seller, the other party thereto, under any such
License Agreement. Except as set forth in Schedule 3.16(b)(2), the Seller
does not have any agreements or arrangements with any Persons related to
Trade Secrets of such Persons or restricting any Seller's ability to engage
in business activities of any nature.

         (c) To the Knowledge of the Seller and except as set forth in
Schedule 3.12, the Seller's Proprietary Rights as now used or offered for
use by the Seller in the Business do not infringe on any Proprietary Right
of any Person, anywhere in the world. The Seller has not received notice of
any claims (i) challenging the validity, effectiveness or, other than with
respect to Seller Licensed Intellectual Property, ownership by a Seller of
any of the Seller's Proprietary Rights, or (ii) to the effect that the Use
or any other exercise of rights in Seller's Proprietary Rights by the
Seller through the Business or their agents or use by its customers
infringes or misappropriates or may infringe on or misappropriate any
Proprietary Right of any Person. To the Knowledge of the Seller, no such
claims have been threatened by any person, nor are there any valid grounds
for any bona fide claim of any such kind. All of the registered Patents,
Copyrights and Trademarks within Seller's Proprietary Rights are valid and
subsisting in full force and effect and have not been cancelled, expired or
abandoned. The Seller has not agreed, except in the ordinary course of
business consistent with past practices, to indemnify any Person for or
against any interference, infringement, misappropriation or other conflict
with respect to any item of the Seller's Proprietary Rights. To the
Knowledge of the Seller, there is no unauthorized use, infringement,
dilution, misappropriation or other violation of any Seller's Proprietary
Rights by any third party, employee or former employee.

         (d) Except as set forth on Schedule 3.16(d), to the Knowledge of
the Seller, all personnel, including employees, agents, consultants and
contractors, who, to the Knowledge of the Seller, have contributed to or
participated in the conception and development of the Seller's Proprietary
Rights (excluding Seller Licensed Intellectual Property), have executed
nondisclosure or similar agreements and, to the Knowledge of the Seller,
those who significantly contributed to the development of the Seller's
Proprietary Rights either (i) have been a party to a "work-for-hire"
arrangement or agreements with Seller prepared in accordance with
applicable Law that accorded the Seller full, exclusive and original
ownership of all Proprietary Rights thereby arising, or (ii) have executed
appropriate instruments of assignment in favor of the Seller as assignee
that have conveyed to the Seller exclusive ownership of such Proprietary
Rights.

         (e) The source code and documentation relating to the software
programs owned by the Seller and incorporated in Seller's Proprietary
Rights ("Software Programs") and all other Trade Secrets of the Seller
incorporated in the Seller's Proprietary Rights have been maintained in
confidence and only (i) have been disclosed by the Seller to its employees
while the Seller has exercised reasonable measures to maintain such
confidence, or (ii) have been disclosed to those third parties who have a
"need to know" the contents thereof and who have executed nondisclosure
agreements with the Seller, in each case which adequately protects the
Seller's proprietary interest therein. The Seller has taken reasonably
sufficient measures to protect the confidentiality of the Seller's
Proprietary Rights.

         (f) The Seller and its Affiliates do not owe any royalties or
other payments to third parties in respect of the Seller's Proprietary
Rights, except as set forth on Schedule 3.16(f).

         (g) To the Knowledge of the Seller, the Software Programs contain
no "viruses." For the purposes of this Agreement, "virus" means any
computer code intentionally designed to disrupt, disable or harm in any
manner the operation of any software or hardware. To the Knowledge of the
Seller, none of the Software Programs contain any worm, bomb, backdoor,
clock, timer, or other disabling device, code, design or routine which
causes the Software Programs to be erased, inoperable, or otherwise
incapable of being used, either automatically or upon command by any party.

         (h) Schedule 3.16(h)(1) contains a true and complete list of
material licenses or other agreements with third parties wherein the Seller
has licensed or otherwise provided any rights to any of the Seller's
Proprietary Rights to such third party, except for rights granted to
customers in the Assumed Contracts. Except as set forth in Schedule
3.16(h)(2), the Seller has not granted to any third party any exclusive
rights of any kind (including, without limitation, exclusivity with regard
to categories of advertisers on any World Wide Web site, territorial
exclusivity or exclusivity with respect to particular versions,
implementations or translations of any of the Seller's Proprietary Rights),
nor has the Seller granted any third party any right to market any of the
Seller's Proprietary Rights under any private label, "OEM" or other
arrangements. To the Knowledge of the Seller, except as set forth in
Schedule 3.16(h)(3), no employee of the Seller has any agreements or
arrangements with any Persons other than the Seller related to Trade
Secrets of such Persons or restricting any such employees' ability to
engage in business activities of any nature. To the Knowledge of the
Seller, the activities of the Seller's present employees on behalf of the
Seller do not violate any such agreements or arrangements.

         (i) Except as would not be expected to have a Material Adverse
Effect on the Seller's rights therein, the Trademarks listed in Schedule
3.16(a) for which the Seller have obtained or applied for a registration
have been continuously used in the form appearing in, and in connection
with the goods and services listed in, their respective registration
certificates. To the Knowledge of the Seller, there has been no prior use
of such Trademarks by any third party that would confer upon said third
party superior rights in such Trademarks. The Seller has diligently policed
the material Trademarks against third party infringement so as to maintain
the validity of such Trademarks.

         SECTION 3.17. Employees. Schedule 3.17 sets forth as of September
30, 2002 a list of the names, titles, locations, annual salaries and stock
option grants of all employees, independent consultants and leased or
temporary employees of the Seller; and all of the information in Schedule
3.17 is true, complete and correct in all material respects. The Seller's
classification of all Persons, whom the Seller has treated as independent
contractors for any purpose, satisfies the requirements of Law applicable
to the classification of individuals as independent contractors, and the
Seller has fully and accurately reported the amounts paid by the Seller to
or on behalf of such Persons on IRS Forms 1099 when required to do so.

         SECTION 3.18. Intercompany Arrangements. Except as disclosed in
Schedule 3.18, (a) since September 30, 2002, there have been no material
transactions between the Seller and any of its Subsidiaries, or any
director, officer, employee, stockholder or other Affiliate of the Seller
relating to the Purchased Assets; and (b) no Affiliate of the Seller owns
or has any rights in or to any of the Purchased Assets, or properties or
rights used by the Business in the ordinary course.

         SECTION 3.19. Taxes.

         (a) Except as set forth on Schedule 3.19(a), the Seller (i) has
filed or there has been filed on its behalf, within the time and in the
manner prescribed by Law (taking into account any extensions of time
permitted by Law), all Returns with respect to Taxes and all such Returns
are true, complete and correct in all material respects, (ii) has timely
paid all Taxes that are required to be paid, except with respect to matters
contested in good faith and as to which adequate cash reserves have been
provided, (iii) has not waived any statute of limitations with respect to
Taxes or agreed to any extension of time within which to file any Return
for any taxable period, which such Return has not since been filed or to
extend the period for the assessment or collection of any Taxes, and (iv)
has provided adequate accruals in its financial statements for the payment
of all Taxes not yet due and payable (including deferred income taxes).

         (b) Except as disclosed on Schedule 3.19(b), there are no liens
for Taxes upon the assets of the Seller except for statutory Liens for
current Taxes, assessments or other governmental charges not yet delinquent
or the amount or validity of which is being contested in good faith by
appropriate proceedings and as to which adequate cash reserves have been
provided.

         (c) The Seller is not a party to or bound by or has any obligation
under any written Tax sharing, allocation, indemnity or similar agreement
or arrangement currently effective under which the Seller would be required
to pay income Taxes of any Person other than the Seller.

         SECTION 3.20. Finders' Fees. Other than Marlin & Associates (for
which all fees, commissions and expenses shall be borne by the Seller),
there is no investment banker, broker, finder or other intermediary which
has been retained by or is authorized to act on behalf of the Seller who
might be entitled to any fee or commission from the Seller or any of its
Affiliates upon consummation of the transactions contemplated by this
Agreement.

         SECTION 3.21. Employee Benefit Plans.

         (a) There have been no material violations of ERISA, the Code or
other applicable Law relating to the operation and administration of any
Plan and, to the Knowledge of the Seller, no "party in interest" or
"disqualified person" with respect to the Plans has engaged in a
"prohibited transaction", as defined in Section 4975 of the Code or Section
406 of ERISA or taken any actions, or failed to take any actions, which
could reasonably result in any liability to the Buyer or any Affiliate of
the Buyer. The Seller has timely filed all documents and reports (including
Form 5500) for each Plan with all applicable governmental authorities and
has timely furnished all required documents to the participants or
beneficiaries of each such Plan, other than any such failures that could
not reasonably be expected to result in any liability to the Buyer or any
Affiliate of Buyer.

         (b) No Plan is subject to Section 302 or Title IV of ERISA or
Section 412 of the Code. No liability under Title IV or Section 302 of
ERISA has been incurred by the Seller or any ERISA Affiliate that has not
been satisfied in full, and no condition exists that presents a material
risk to the Buyer or any ERISA Affiliate of incurring any such liability,
other than liability for premiums due the Pension Benefit Guaranty
Corporation (which premiums have been paid when due).

         (c) The Seller does not maintain or contribute to, and does not
have an obligation to establish, maintain or contribute to, a
"multiemployer pension plan," as such term is defined in Section 3(37) of
ERISA.

         (d) Except as set forth on Schedule 3.21, the consummation of the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement will not, either alone or in
combination with another event, (i) entitle any Transferred Employee to
severance pay or any other payment under any Plan, except as expressly
provided in this Agreement, or (ii) accelerate the time of payment or
vesting, or increase the amount of compensation due any Transferred
Employee under any Plan.

         SECTION 3.22. Related Party Transactions. Except as set forth on
Schedule 3.22 hereto, no employee, director, officer or stockholder of the
Seller and no member of the immediate family of any employee, officer,
director or stockholder of the Seller is directly or indirectly interested
in any Assumed Contract.

         SECTION 3.23. Investment Representations and Warranties. The
Seller understands that the Securities have not been, and will not upon
issuance be, registered under the Securities Act, and that the certificates
evidencing the Securities shall bear a legend to that effect.

         SECTION 3.24. Acquisition for Own Account. The Seller is acquiring
the Securities for its own account for investment and for the account of
its stockholders and not with a view toward distribution in a manner which
would violate the Securities Act.

         SECTION 3.25. Ability to Protect Its Own Interests. The Seller
represents that by reason of the business and financial experience of its
management, the Seller has the capacity to protect its own interests in
connection with the investment in the Securities.

         SECTION 3.26. Accredited Investor. The Seller represents that it,
and each of its stockholders, is an "accredited investor" as that term is
defined in Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.

         SECTION 3.27. Legends. The Seller agrees that the Securities shall
not be sold, transferred, pledged, disposed of or encumbered for the period
beginning on the Closing Date and ending twelve months from the Closing
Date other than a distribution to its stockholders (who shall be subject to
the same transfer restrictions and legends) in a manner which does not
violate the Securities Act. Each certificate representing the Securities
shall bear a legend stating:

"THE ISSUANCE AND SALE OF THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE
HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE
"ACT"), OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS AND THESE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE
SOLD OR TRANSFERRED UNLESS (I) A REGISTRATION STATEMENT COVERING SUCH SALE
OR TRANSFER IS EFFECTIVE UNDER THE ACT OR (II) THE TRANSACTION IS EXEMPT
FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE ACT, AND IF THE ISSUER REQUESTS, AN OPINION
SATISFACTORY TO THE CORPORATION TO SUCH EFFECT HAS BEEN RENDERED BY
COUNSEL."

"THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO A
CONTRACTUAL HOLDING PERIOD SET FORTH IN THAT CERTAIN ASSET PURCHASE
AGREEMENT BETWEEN INLUMEN, INC., BROAD ACQUISITION CORP. AND THE ISSUER
DATED AS OF OCTOBER [ ], 2002. PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF SUCH HOLDING
PERIOD, SUCH SECURITIES MAY NOT BE SOLD, TRANSFERRED OR ASSIGNED AND THE
ISSUER SHALL NOT BE REQUIRED TO GIVE EFFECT TO ANY ATTEMPTED SALE, TRANSFER
OR ASSIGNMENT. UPON THE WRITTEN REQUEST OF THE HOLDER OF THIS CERTIFICATE,
THE ISSUER AGREES TO REMOVE THIS RESTRICTIVE LEGEND (AND ANY STOP ORDER
PLACED WITH ITS TRANSFER AGENT) WHEN THE HOLDING PERIOD HAS EXPIRED."

         SECTION 3.28. Other Information. None of the Seller's
representations, warranties or statements contained in this Agreement, and
none of the documents or information delivered to the Buyer in connection
with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, contain any untrue
statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact necessary in
order to make the statements contained therein not misleading.

         SECTION 3.29. NewsAlert Assets. Notwithstanding anything in this
Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement to the contrary, the Seller makes no
representations, warranties or similar statements (including without
limitation, pursuant to this Article III) with respect to those assets
identified on Schedule 3.29 (the "NewsAlert Assets") and the NewsAlert
Assets are being transferred "as is"; provided, however, that this
limitation shall not apply to Sections 3.01, 3.02, 3.03, 3.04, 3.07, 3.08,
3.11, 3.12 (except for the second sentence thereof), 3.17, 3.20, 3.21,
3.23, 3.24, 3.25, 3.26, 3.27, or 5.05. For the avoidance of doubt, the
transfer of the rights relating to the NewsAlert Assets is limited to any
rights vested in the Seller as of the Closing Date.

                REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE BUYER

that:

         SECTION 4.01. Capitalization.

become bound to issue additional shares of capital stock, nor are any such
issuances or arrangements contemplated.

         (c) The Securities have been duly authorized and, upon issuance on
the terms and conditions specified in this Agreement and the Ancillary

Securities included in the Escrowed Consideration, the Escrow Agreement.

         SECTION 4.02. Organization and Qualification. Each of the Buyer
and Acquisition Sub has been duly organized and is validly existing and in
good standing under the Laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation and
has the requisite corporate power and authority to own, lease and operate
its properties and to carry on its business as it is now being conducted.
Each of the Buyer and Acquisition Sub is duly qualified or licensed to do
business, and is in good standing, in each jurisdiction where the character
of the properties owned, leased or operated by it or the nature of its
business makes such qualification or licensing necessary, except for such
failures to be so qualified and in good standing that would not reasonably
be likely to, individually or in the aggregate, result in a material
adverse effect on the condition (financial or otherwise) or results of
operations of the Buyer or Acquisition Sub.

         SECTION 4.03. Corporate Authorization. Each of the Buyer and
Acquisition Sub has the necessary corporate power and authority to execute

Agreement and each of the Ancillary Agreements to which it is a party, and
the consummation by each of the Buyer and Acquisition Sub of the
transactions contemplated hereby and thereby have been duly authorized by
all necessary corporate action on the part of each of the Buyer and
Acquisition Sub. This Agreement and each of the Ancillary Agreements have
been, or, in the case of the Ancillary Agreements, will be, duly executed
and delivered by each of the Buyer and Acquisition Sub and constitute valid
and binding agreements of each of the Buyer and Acquisition Sub,
enforceable against each of the Buyer and Acquisition Sub, in accordance
with their respective terms, except as the same may be limited by
bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar Laws now or
hereafter in effect relating to creditors' rights generally and subject to
general principles of equity and public policy.

         SECTION 4.04. Governmental Authorization. The execution, delivery
and performance by each of the Buyer and Acquisition Sub of this Agreement
and each of the Ancillary Agreements to which it is a party, and the
consummation by each of the Buyer and Acquisition Sub of the transactions
contemplated hereby and thereby, do not and will not require any action by
or in respect of, or filing with, any Governmental Entity, except for such
actions or filings the failure of which to be made or obtained would not,
individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to result in a
material adverse effect on the condition (financial or otherwise) or
results of operations of the Buyer or Acquisition Sub and other than filing
a Form D with any appropriate Governmental Entity.

         SECTION 4.05. Non-Contravention. The execution, delivery and
performance by each of the Buyer and Acquisition Sub of this Agreement and
each of the Ancillary Agreements to which it is a party, and the
consummation by each of the Buyer and Acquisition Sub of the transactions
contemplated hereby and thereby do not and will not (i) contravene or
conflict with the certificate of incorporation or bylaws of the Buyer or
Acquisition Sub, (ii) contravene or conflict with or constitute a material
violation of any provision of any Law, judgment, injunction, order or
decree binding upon or applicable to the Buyer or Acquisition Sub, or (iii)
constitute a default under or give rise to any right of termination,
cancellation or acceleration of any material right or obligation of the
Buyer or Acquisition Sub or to a loss of any material benefit to which the
Buyer or Acquisition Sub is entitled under any provision of any material
Contract binding upon the Buyer or Acquisition Sub or by which any of the
Buyer's or Acquisition Sub's assets is or may be bound.

         SECTION 4.06. Required Consents. Neither the execution, delivery
or performance of this Agreement or the Ancillary Agreements by the Buyer,
nor the consummation by the Buyer or Acquisition Sub of the transactions
contemplated hereby or thereby requires any consent of, waiver by,
authorization by, exemption from, filing with, or notice to any Person,
other than filing a Form D with any appropriate Governmental Entity.

         SECTION 4.07. Litigation. There is no action, suit, claim,
investigation or proceeding pending against, or to the Knowledge of the
Buyer, threatened against, or relating to or affecting, the Buyer or
Acquisition Sub before any court or arbitrator or any governmental body,
agency or official which in any manner challenges or seeks to prevent,
enjoin, alter materially delay the transactions contemplated hereby or by
the Ancillary Agreements, and, to the Knowledge of the Buyer, there are no
existing facts or circumstances that could reasonably be expected to result
in such an action, suit, claim, investigation or proceeding. Neither the
Buyer nor Acquisition Sub is subject to any outstanding order, writ,
injunction or decree which materially interferes, individually or in the
aggregate, with the Buyer's or Acquisition Sub's ability to consummate the
transactions contemplated hereby or by the Ancillary Agreements.

         SECTION 4.08. Finders' Fees. There is no investment banker,
broker, finder or other intermediary which has been retained by or is
authorized to act on behalf of the Buyer or Acquisition Sub who might be
entitled to any fee or commission from the Buyer or Acquisition Sub or any

this Agreement.

         SECTION 4.09. Compliance with Laws. The Buyer is not in violation
of, has not violated, and, to the Knowledge of the Buyer, is not under
investigation with respect to or has been threatened to be charged with or
given notice of any violation of, any Law or judgment, order or decree
entered by any court, arbitrator or governmental authority, domestic or
foreign, except where such violation would not, individually or in the
aggregate, reasonably be expected to result in a material adverse effect on
the condition (financial or otherwise) or results of operations of the
Buyer.

         SECTION 4.10. SEC Documents. The Buyer has filed all required
registration statements, prospectuses, reports, schedules, forms,
statements and other documents (including exhibits and all other
information incorporated therein) with the SEC since August 2, 2000 (the
"SEC Reports"). As of their respective dates, the SEC Reports complied in
all material respects with the requirements of the Securities Act or the
Securities Exchange Act, as the case may be, and the rules and regulations
of the SEC promulgated thereunder applicable to such SEC Reports, and none
of the SEC Reports when filed contained any untrue statement 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. The financial
statements of the Buyer included in the SEC Reports complied as to form, as
of their respective dates of filing with the SEC, in all material respects
with applicable accounting requirements and the published rules and
regulations of the SEC with respect thereto, have been prepared in
accordance with GAAP (except, in the case of unaudited statements, as
permitted by Form 10-Q) applied on a consistent basis during the periods
involved (except as may be indicated in the notes thereto) and fairly
present in all material respects the consolidated financial position of the
Buyer and its consolidated Subsidiaries as of the dates thereof and the
consolidated results of their operations and cash flows for the periods
then ended (subject, in the case of unaudited statements, to normal
year-end audit adjustments).

         SECTION 4.11. Acquisition Sub. All of the outstanding capital
stock of Acquisition Sub is owned by the Buyer free and clear of any Lien.

activity of any nature except in connection with or as contemplated by this
Agreement.

         SECTION 4.12. Other Information. None of the Buyer's or
Acquisition Sub's representations, warranties or statements contained in
this Agreement, and none of the documents or information delivered to the
Seller in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement,
contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a
material fact necessary in order to make the statements contained therein
not misleading.

business; provided that the Seller may modify, amend or terminate Contracts
which are not Assumed Contracts;

         (f) (x) take, agree or commit to take or fail to take any action
that would have a Material Adverse Effect or otherwise make any
representation and warranty of the Seller hereunder inaccurate, untrue or
incomplete at, or as of any time prior to, the Closing Date or (y) omit or
agree or commit to omit to take any action necessary to prevent any such

unreasonably with the conduct of the business of the Seller, and shall be
done in such a way as to insure continued compliance with the
Confidentiality Agreement.

         SECTION 5.03. Notices of Certain Events. From the date hereof

              (ii) any notice or other communication from any Governmental
     Entity in connection with the Purchased Assets or the transactions
     contemplated by this Agreement, which would reasonably be expected to
     have a Material Adverse Effect; and

              (iii) any actions, suits, claims, investigations or
     proceedings commenced or, to the Knowledge of the Seller, threatened
     against, relating to or involving or otherwise affecting the Seller or
     the Purchased Assets that, if pending on the date of this Agreement,
     would have been required to have been disclosed pursuant to Section
     3.12 or that otherwise relate to the consummation of the transactions
     contemplated by this Agreement (including, without limitation, any
     Bankruptcy Event).

         SECTION 5.04. Noncompetition.

         (a) For a three (3) year period commencing on the Closing Date,
neither the Seller nor any of the Seller's Subsidiaries shall, directly or
indirectly, as a principal or for its own or another's account, alone or in
association with any other Person, or through any form of ownership in any
Person:

              (i) engage (directly or indirectly) in any business anywhere
     in the world that competes with the Business; provided, however, that
     an investment by the Seller or any of its Subsidiaries in any Person
     as a passive investor with no more than 10% of the equity ownership of
     such Person shall not be deemed a breach of this covenant;

              (ii) call upon any Person who is, at that time, or was within
     one (1) year prior to that time, an employee of the Buyer or its
     Affiliates for the purpose or with the intent of enticing such
     employee away from or out of the employ of the Buyer or its Affiliates
     (it being understood that a general solicitation in a newspaper or
     similar medium should not be deemed a breach of this covenant);

              (iii) call upon any Person who is, at that time, or has been
     within one (1) year prior to that time, a customer of the Buyer or its
     Affiliates for the purpose of solicitation or selling products or
     services in competition with the Business; or

              (iv) publish any statement critical of the Buyer or its
     Affiliates with respect to the Business or the Purchased Assets or
     reasonably likely to adversely affect or otherwise malign the
     reputation of the Buyer or its Affiliates with respect to the Business
     or the Purchased Assets.

         (b) If any provision contained in this Section 5.04 shall for any
reason be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such
invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other
provisions of this Section 5.04, but this Section 5.04 shall be construed
as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been
contained herein. It is the intention of the parties that if any of the
restrictions or covenants contained herein is held to cover a geographic
area or to be for a length of time which is not permitted by applicable
Law, or in any way construed to be too broad or to any extent invalid, such
provision shall not be construed to be null, void and of no effect, but to
the extent such provision would be valid or enforceable under applicable
Law, a court of competent jurisdiction shall construe and interpret or
reform this Section 5.04 to provide for a covenant having the maximum
enforceable geographic area, time period and other provisions (not greater
than those contained herein) as shall be valid and enforceable under such
applicable Law. The Seller acknowledges that the Buyer would be irreparably
harmed by any breach of this Section 5.04 and that there would be no
adequate remedy at Law or in damages to compensate the Buyer for any such
breach. The Seller agrees that the Buyer shall be entitled, in addition to
any other available remedy, to injunctive relief requiring specific
performance by the Seller of this Section 5.04 without the necessity of
proving actual damages or the posting of a bond, and the Seller consents to
the entry thereof.

         (c) The existence of any claim or cause of action of the Seller
against the Buyer or an Affiliate thereof, whether predicated on this
Agreement, the Ancillary Agreements, or otherwise, shall not constitute a
defense to the enforcement by the Buyer of this Section 5.04. It is
understood by the parties hereto that the covenants contained in this
Section 5.04 are essential elements of this Agreement and that, but for the
agreement of the Seller to comply with such covenants, the Buyer and
Acquisition Sub would not have agreed to enter into this Agreement. The
Seller hereby agrees that all covenants contained in this Section 5.04 are
reasonable and valid and waive all defenses to the strict enforcement
hereof by the Buyer and Acquisition Sub. The Seller hereby agrees that the
covenants set forth in this Section 5.04 are a material and substantial
part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

         SECTION 5.05. Name Change. Immediately after the Closing Date, the
Seller shall take such action (at its sole expense), including, without
limitation, filing an amendment to its certificate of incorporation, to
cause the Seller's name to be changed to a name which does not include the
word "Inlumen" or "NewsAlert" or a word or phrase confusingly similar
thereto. The Seller shall not use a name or internet uniform resource
locator which includes the word "Inlumen" or "NewsAlert" or a word or
phrase confusingly similar thereto from and after the Closing Date.

         SECTION 5.06. Trademarks; Trade names. As soon as practicable, but
in no event later than 60 Business Days after the Closing Date, the Seller
shall cease and desist the use of all Trademarks included in the Purchased
Assets, in any of their forms or spellings, including, but not limited to,
the names Inlumen and NewsAlert or any derivative thereof or any
confusingly similar Trademarks on all advertising, stationery, business
cards, checks, purchase orders and acknowledgments, customer agreements and
other material used by the Seller.

         SECTION 5.07. No Negotiation with Third Parties. The Seller shall
not, directly or indirectly, and the Seller shall cause its officers,
directors, employees, accountants, counsel, consultants, advisors, agents
and its Principal Stockholders (collectively, "Representatives") not to,
directly or indirectly, solicit, initiate or encourage (including by way of
furnishing nonpublic information), any inquiries or the making of any
proposal or offer that constitutes, or may reasonably be expected to lead
to, any acquisition of the Purchased Assets, whether by way of asset
purchase, stock purchase, merger or otherwise (a "Competing Transaction"),
or enter into or maintain or continue discussions or negotiate with any
person in furtherance of such inquiries or to obtain a Competing
Transaction, or agree to or endorse any Competing Transaction, or authorize
or permit any of the Seller's Representatives or Subsidiaries, or any
Representative retained by any of the Seller's Subsidiaries, to take any
such action. The Seller shall immediately cease and cause to be terminated
all existing discussions or negotiations with any parties conducted
heretofore with respect to a Competing Transaction. The Seller shall, and
shall use its best efforts to cause its Representatives to, notify the
Buyer orally and in writing promptly upon receipt of any inquiry, offer or
proposal with respect to a Competing Transaction, including the identity of
the party making such inquiry, offer or proposal and stating the terms
thereof. The Seller shall not release any third party from, or waive any
provision of, any confidentiality or standstill agreement to which it is a
party.

         SECTION 5.08. Tax Matters.

         (a) Any transfer, documentary, sales, use, registration,
value-added or other similar Taxes (including all applicable real estate
transfer Taxes) and related fees (including any penalty, interest or
addition to Taxes) assessed upon or with respect to the transfer of the
Purchased Assets to the Buyer shall be paid equally by the Buyer and the
Seller. The Seller and the Buyer shall cooperate in timely making all
filings, returns, reports and forms as may be required to comply with the
provisions of such transfer Tax Laws. To the extent legally able to do so,
the Buyer shall deliver to the Seller exemption certificates satisfactory
in form and substance to the Seller with respect to transfer Taxes if such
delivery would reduce the amount of transfer Taxes that would otherwise be
imposed.

         (b) Any real or personal property or similar Taxes assessed on a
periodic basis with respect to any of the Purchased Assets for any taxable
period commencing prior to the Closing Date and ending after the Closing
Date, shall be apportioned between Buyer and the Seller based on a pro
ration of days in a manner consistent with Section 164(d) of the Code. All
such prorations shall be allocated so that items relating to time periods
ending on or prior to the Closing Date shall be allocated to the Seller and
items relating to time periods beginning after the Closing Date shall be
allocated to the Buyer. The amount of such prorations shall be settled and
paid on the Closing Date.

                                ARTICLE VI

                          COVENANTS OF THE PARTIES

         The parties hereto agree that:

         SECTION 6.01. Assumed Liabilities; Payments. Following the Closing
Date, the Acquisition Sub will discharge the Assumed Liabilities in
accordance with Section 2.03. The Buyer and Acquisition Sub shall promptly
forward to the Seller any payments received by the Buyer on account of any
Excluded Assets. The Buyer and Acquisition Sub shall promptly deliver to
the Seller any mail or other communications received by the Buyer relating
to the Excluded Assets or the Excluded Liabilities. The Seller shall

by Acquisition Sub directed to the Seller or its remaining employees.

         SECTION 6.02. Reasonable Efforts; Further Assurances.

         (a) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each
party will use its reasonable efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all
actions and to do, or cause to be done, all things necessary or desirable
under applicable Laws and regulations to consummate the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement. The Seller and the Buyer each agree to
execute and deliver such other documents, certificates, agreements and
other writings and to take such other actions as may be necessary or
desirable in order to (i) consummate or implement expeditiously the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement, (ii) vest in Acquisition Sub
good and valid title to the Purchased Assets, free and clear of all Liens
other than Permitted Exceptions and (iii) transfer to Acquisition Sub the
Assumed Liabilities.

         (b) After the Closing Date, upon reasonable written notice, the
Buyer and the Seller shall furnish or cause to be furnished to each other
and their employees, counsel, auditors and representatives access, during
normal business hours, to such information and assistance relating to or
affecting the Purchased Assets (to the extent within the control of such
party) as is reasonably necessary for financial reporting and accounting
matters.

         (c) After the Closing Date, upon reasonable written notice, the
Buyer and the Seller shall furnish or cause to be furnished to each other,
as promptly as practicable, such information and assistance (to the extent
within the control of such party) relating to the Purchased Assets
(including, access to books and records) as is reasonably necessary for the
filing of all Returns, and making of any election related to Taxes, the
preparation for any audit by any taxing authority, and the prosecution or
defense of any claim, suit or proceeding related to any Return. The Seller
and the Buyer shall cooperate with each other in the conduct of any audit
or other proceeding relating to Taxes involving the Business.

         (d) Neither party shall be required by Section 6.02(b) or (c) to
take any action that would unreasonably interfere with the conduct of its
business or unreasonably disrupt its normal operations (or, in the case of
the Buyer, the Business). Any non-public information received by the Seller
following the Closing Date shall be subject to the Confidentiality
Agreement.

         SECTION 6.03. Certain Filings. The Seller and the Buyer shall
cooperate with one another (a) in determining whether any action by, or in
respect of, or filing with, any Governmental Entity is required, or any
actions, consents, approvals or waivers are required to be obtained from
parties to any material Contracts, in connection with the consummation of
the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and (b) in taking such
actions or making any such filings, furnishing information required in
connection therewith and seeking timely to obtain any such actions,
consents, approvals or waivers.

         SECTION 6.04. Confidentiality. The parties hereto shall comply
with, and shall cause their respective Representatives to comply with, all
of their respective obligations under the Confidentiality Agreement with
respect to the information disclosed pursuant to this Agreement.

         SECTION 6.05. Public Announcements. The Buyer and the Seller shall
consult with each other before issuing any press release concerning this
Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby or otherwise making any
public statements with respect to this Agreement, or the transactions
contemplated hereby, and shall not issue any such press release or make any
such public statement without the prior written approval of the others,
except to the extent required by applicable Law or the requirements of the
rules and regulations of the SEC or The Nasdaq National Market System. From
and after the Closing, the Seller shall consult with the Buyer before
issuing any press release or otherwise making any public statements with
respect to the Purchased Assets and shall not issue any such press release
or make any such public statement without the prior written consent of the
Buyer.

         SECTION 6.06. Other Matters. From the date hereof until the
Closing Date, at the reasonable request of the Buyer, the Seller shall use
its reasonable efforts to introduce the Buyer to the principal customers of
the Business for the sole purpose of the Buyer's disclosing the existence
of the transactions contemplated hereby in order to obtain a Required
Consent. From the date hereof until the Closing Date, at the reasonable
request of the Buyer, the Seller shall use its reasonable efforts to
introduce the Buyer to the content providers of the Business for the sole
purposes of the Buyer's disclosing the existence of the transactions
contemplated hereby in order to obtain a Required Consent or to seek to
renegotiate the terms and conditions of a content vendor agreement which is
an Assumed Contract. A representative of the Seller shall always
participate in or approve in writing any meetings, discussions or
conversations involving the Buyer and any of the Seller's customers or
content providers. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained
herein or in any other instruments or documents and without the prior
written consent of the Seller, between the date hereof and the Closing
Date, the Buyer shall not, directly or indirectly, and the Buyer shall
cause its officers, directors, employees, accountants, counsel,
consultants, advisors and agents not to, directly or indirectly, disclose
or otherwise use any of the information not publicly available concerning
the transactions contemplated hereby or the Purchased Assets to any current
customer or vendor of the Seller or solicit or otherwise contact any of
Seller's or its Subsidiaries' customers or vendors except in the ordinary
course of business of the Buyer, consistent with past practice and not in
violation of any agreements binding on the Buyer or any of its Subsidiaries
or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, accountants,
counsel, consultants, advisors and agents.

         SECTION 6.07. [Intentionally Omitted]

         SECTION 6.08. Allocation of Purchase Price. The Purchase Price
shall be allocated within ninety (90) days of the Closing among the
Purchased Assets in accordance with an allocation schedule to be prepared
by the Buyer and the Seller acting jointly. Such allocation schedule shall
be prepared in accordance with Section 1060 of the Code. In connection with
the determination of such schedule, the parties shall cooperate with each
other and provide such information as any of them shall reasonably request.
The parties shall (i) each report the Federal, state, local and other Tax
consequences of the purchase and sale of contemplated hereby (including the
filing of Internal Revenue Service Form 8594) in a manner consistent with
such allocation schedule and (ii) take no position in any Tax filing,
return, proceeding, audit or otherwise which is inconsistent with such
allocation. In the event that the allocation of the Purchase Price is
disputed by any taxing authority, the party receiving notice of the dispute
shall promptly notify the other parties hereto. Notwithstanding the above,
no allocation of the Purchase Price shall be made, and no allocation
schedule shall be prepared, if the purchase of the Purchased Assets by the
Buyer from the Seller pursuant to this Agreement is treated as a
"reorganization" pursuant to Section 368(a)(1)(C) of the Code (a
"Reorganization"), or is otherwise treated as a transaction pursuant to
which the tax basis of the Purchased Assets to the Buyer is determined by
reference to the tax basis of such assets to the Seller. Buyer and Seller
further agree that, unless the Purchase Price paid pursuant to Section 2.06
consists solely of Securities, the Seller shall determine whether the
purchase of the Purchased Assets constitutes a Reorganization, which
determination shall be binding upon Buyer unless there is no reasonable
basis for such determination or there is a final determination to the
contrary by the Internal Revenue Service.

         SECTION 6.09. WorldCom Data Center. To the extent the WorldCom
data center lease is not terminated within one hundred eighty (180) days of
the Closing Date, the Buyer shall return to the Seller the amount in cash
corresponding to the lease buyout amount included in Net Working
Liabilities with respect to the WorldCom Data Center lease as of the
Closing Date within ten (10) Business Days thereafter.

         SECTION 6.10. Filing of Reports Under the Exchange Act. If and for
so long as the Seller or its stockholders hold Securities, the Buyer shall
(i) comply with the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act,
and (ii) comply with all other public information reporting requirements of
the SEC that are a condition to the availability of an exemption from the
Securities Act (under Rule 144 or 144A thereof, as amended from time to
time, or successor rules thereto or otherwise) for the sale of the
Securities by the Seller or its stockholders. The Buyer shall cooperate
with the Seller in supplying such information as may be necessary for the
Seller to complete and file any information reporting forms presently or
hereafter required by the SEC as a condition to the availability of an
exemption from the Securities Act (under Rule 144 or 144A thereunder or
otherwise) for the sale of the Securities by the Seller or its
stockholders.

         SECTION 6.11. Notification. Between the date hereof and the
Closing Date, the Seller will promptly notify the Buyer in writing if the
Seller becomes aware of any fact or condition that causes or constitutes a
breach of any of the Seller's representations or warranties as of the date
hereof, or if the Seller becomes aware of the occurrence after the date
hereof of any fact or condition that would (except as expressly
contemplated herein) cause or constitute a breach of any such
representation or warranty had such representation or warranty been made as
of the time of occurrence or discovery of such fact or condition. Should
any such fact or condition require any change in the Seller's schedules to
the representations and warranties contained in this Agreement if the
Seller's schedules were dated the date of the occurrence or discovery of
any such fact or condition, the Seller will promptly deliver to the Buyer a
supplement to the Seller's schedules to the representations and warranties
contained in this Agreement (the "Supplemental Schedules") specifying such
change. During the same period, the Seller will promptly notify the Buyer
of the occurrence of any breach of any covenant of the Seller in this
Agreement or of the occurrence of any event that may make the satisfaction
of the conditions in Section 8.02 impossible or unlikely.


                                ARTICLE VII

                              EMPLOYEE MATTERS

         SECTION 7.01. Employees and Offers of Employment.

         (a) The Buyer shall have the right, but not the obligation, to
offer employment to any employees of the Seller, in the Buyer's sole
discretion, that perform services in connection with the Business. Schedule
7.01(a) sets forth the names of the employees to whom the Buyer may offer
employment (each a "Potentially Transferred Employee"). Except as otherwise
provided herein, any such offers shall be at such salary or wage and
benefit levels and on such other terms and conditions as the Buyer shall in
its sole discretion deem appropriate. The Buyer shall have the right, but
not the obligation, to offer to the Potentially Transferred Employees
bonuses or any other consideration (at such time as may be agreed between
the Buyer and such employees) for their assistance to the Buyer in
connection with effecting the transition of the Business to the Buyer. The
employees who accept and commence employment with the Buyer on or prior to
the Closing Date are heretofore and hereinafter collectively referred to as
the "Transferred Employees." The Buyer may, in compliance with applicable
Law, interview and conduct background investigations with respect to any
Potentially Transferred Employee, and the Seller will not take any action
that would impede, hinder, interfere or otherwise compete with the Buyer's
effort to hire any Transferred Employees. Upon Potentially Transferred
Employees becoming Transferred Employees, the Seller shall provide the
personnel records of such Transferred Employees to the Buyer; provided,
however, that the Seller shall have no obligation to provide such records
in the event that the provision of such records is prohibited by applicable
Law.

         (b) To the extent that any Transferred Employee is eligible to
participate in any employee benefit plan of the Buyer or any of its
Affiliates (i) such employees shall receive full credit for purposes of
determining future vacation entitlement and (ii) such employees shall
participate in the Buyer employee benefit plans on terms that are no less
favorable than offered to similarly situated employees of the Buyer.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in no event shall any
period during which a Transferred Employee was on a sabbatical be counted
for purposes of calculating prior service credit under any Buyer plan,
policy, program or other arrangement.

         (c) The Seller shall pay, or otherwise be responsible for, and
shall indemnify the Buyer against all amounts due and benefits accrued or
earned on or before the Closing Date under any Plan to or by any
Transferred Employee on or before the Closing Date. The Buyer shall pay, or
otherwise be responsible for, and shall indemnify the Seller against all
amounts due and benefits accrued or earned after the Closing Date by any
Transferred Employee under any employee benefit plan, policy, program or
other arrangement maintained by the Buyer or any of its Affiliates,
including, but not limited to, any severance obligations to the Transferred
Employees by reason of their termination of employment with the Buyer. If a
current employee of the Seller, other than those employees set forth on
Schedule 7.01(c) or a Transferred Employee for which no reimbursement shall
be due, becomes a full-time employee of the Buyer within six months of the
date hereof or becomes a consultant of the Buyer who works a minimum of 200
hours for the Buyer during the one hundred eighty (180) days immediately
following the Closing Date, the Buyer shall promptly reimburse the Seller
fifty percent (50%) of the severance payment actually paid by the Seller to
such employee, if any, in connection with such employee's termination of
employment with the Seller; provided, however, that the Seller may elect to
waive such right to reimbursement.

         (d) Neither the Seller nor any of its Affiliates shall modify,
amend or otherwise alter any non-competition or other similar restrictions
with any Potentially Transferred Employee (or any former employee of the
Seller that would be a Potentially Transferred Employee if in the employ of
the Seller on the date hereof) without the prior written consent of the
Buyer, and the Seller shall not waive, and the Seller shall use its
reasonable efforts to enforce, at the Buyer's expense (provided that, any
such expense has been previously approved by the Buyer in writing), such
non-competition or other restrictions in connection with any violation
thereof. The Seller hereby agrees to forever release (and to cause any
Affiliate to release) any Potentially Transferred Employee who becomes a
Transferred Employee or any employee of the Seller (or any Affiliate) who
becomes a consultant to the Buyer from the provisions of any
non-competition, non-disclosure or other similar restrictions relating to
the Purchased Assets to the extent necessary to allow (x) such Potentially
Transferred Employee to accept such offer of employment with the Buyer or
(y) such employee to accept a consulting engagement with the Buyer.

         SECTION 7.02. No Third Party Beneficiaries. No provision of this
Agreement, including, without limitation, this Article VII shall create any
third party beneficiary or other rights in any employee or former employee
(including any beneficiary or dependent thereof) of the Seller or any of
its Subsidiaries (whether or not a Potentially Transferred Employee) with
respect to employment (or continued employment) or consulting arrangements
with the Buyer, and no provision of this Agreement, including, without
limitation, this Article VII shall create any such rights in any such
Persons with respect to any benefits that may be provided, directly or
indirectly, under any plan or arrangement that may be established by the
Buyer. No provision of this Agreement shall constitute a limitation on
rights to amend, modify or terminate after the Closing Date any such plans
or arrangements of the Buyer.


                               ARTICLE VIII

                           CONDITIONS TO CLOSING

              (d) The Seller shall have received all Material Required
Consents, along with a sufficient number of Required Consents which are not

all contracts for which non-Material Required Consents have not been
obtained is less than $20,000 in the aggregate.

              (e) Since the date of this Agreement, no Material Adverse

              (f) The Buyer shall have received the names, and contact

         SECTION 8.03. Conditions to Obligations of the Seller. The
obligation of the Seller to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby
is subject to the satisfaction of the following further conditions:

              (a) (i) each of the Buyer and Acquisition Sub shall have

                                ARTICLE IX

                         SURVIVAL; INDEMNIFICATION

              SECTION 9.01. Survival. The representations and warranties of
the parties hereto contained in this Agreement or in any certificate or
other writing delivered pursuant hereto or in connection herewith shall
survive the Closing until one (1) year after the Closing Date.
Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, any covenant, agreement,
representation or warranty in respect of which indemnity may be sought
under Section 9.02 or 9.03 shall survive the time at which it would
otherwise terminate pursuant to the preceding sentence, if notice of the
inaccuracy or breach thereof giving rise to such right to indemnity shall
have been given to the party against whom such indemnity may be sought
prior to such time. All covenants made by any party shall survive the
Closing Date pursuant to their terms.

              SECTION 9.02. Indemnification.

              (a) The Seller hereby indemnifies the Buyer and its
Affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents
(a "Buyer Party") against, and agree to hold each of them harmless from,
any and all damages, claims, debts, actions, assessments, judgments,
losses, liabilities, fines, fees, penalties and expense (including, without
limitation, reasonable expenses of investigation and reasonable attorneys'
fees and expenses in connection with any action, suit or proceeding)
(collectively, "Losses") incurred or suffered by a Buyer Party, whether in
an action between a Buyer Party and the Seller or a Buyer Party and a third
party, in connection with, resulting from or arising out of:

              (i) any misrepresentation, inaccuracy or breach of
     representation and warranty made by the Seller pursuant to this
     Agreement without giving effect to any Supplemental Schedule, other
     than any such breach that is disclosed in a Supplemental Schedule;

              (ii) any breach of covenant or agreement to be performed by
     the Seller pursuant to this Agreement;

              (iii) the failure of the Seller to assume full responsibility
     for any Excluded Liability or any obligation or liability of the
     Business relating to the Excluded Assets and failure to pay and
     discharge when due any Excluded Liability, or any claim or cause of
     action by any party against such indemnities with respect to the
     Excluded Liability;

              (iv) any obligations or liabilities of any nature relating to
     the employment by the Seller or termination by the Seller of employees
     of the Seller (other than the Transferred Employees); or

              (v) claims of actual or alleged infringement or other
     violation arising out of the Seller's (or any Subsidiary's) use of the
     trademark or trade name "NEWSALERT" prior to the Closing.

              (b) the Buyer hereby indemnifies the Seller and its
Affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents
(a "Seller Party") against, and agrees to hold each of them harmless from,
any and all Losses incurred or suffered by a Seller Party, whether in an
action between a Seller Party and the Buyer or a Seller Party and a third
party, in connection with, resulting from or arising out of:

              (i) any misrepresentation, inaccuracy or breach of
     representation and warranty made by the Buyer or Acquisition Sub
     pursuant to this Agreement;

              (ii) any breach of a covenant or agreement to be performed by
     the Buyer or Acquisition Sub pursuant to this Agreement;

              (iii) the failure of Acquisition Sub to assume full
     responsibility for any Assumed Liability or any obligation or
     liability of Acquisition Sub relating to the Purchased Assets and
     failure to pay and discharge when due any Assumed Liability, or any
     claim or cause of action by any party against such indemnities with
     respect to the Assumed Liability;

              (iv) any obligations or liabilities of any nature relating to
     the employment by the Buyer or termination by the Buyer of Transferred
     Employees or other employees of the Buyer; or

              (v) claims of actual or alleged infringement or other
     violation arising out of the Buyer's or Acquisition Sub's use of the
     trademark or trade name "NEWSALERT" from and after the Closing.

              (c) Notwithstanding anything contained in Section 9.02 to the
contrary, there shall be no liability for indemnification under this
Section 9.02, (i) unless the aggregate amount of Losses exceeds $50,000
(the "Indemnity Deductible") at which time the Indemnifying Person shall be
liable for the amount of the Losses in excess of the Indemnity Deductible,
(ii) unless the Indemnified Person delivers to the Indemnifying Party
written notice, setting forth in reasonable detail the identity, nature and
amount of Losses related to such claim or claims, (iii) to the extent that
an Indemnified Party has suffered, incurred, sustained or become subject
to, Losses by reason of all such claims in excess of the Escrowed
Consideration and the Indemnifying Parties, in the aggregate, shall not be
obligated to pay anything other than or more than the Escrowed
Consideration, in the aggregate for all claims under Section 9.02, and (iv)
the Seller shall not be obligated to pay anything other than or more than
the Escrowed Consideration, it being understood that the Escrowed
Consideration shall, subject to Section 9.04, constitute the only recourse
against the Seller under this Article IX.

              (d) Notwithstanding anything contained in Section 9.02 to the
contrary, the Indemnity Deductible shall not apply in the event that
liability of an Indemnifying Person arises out of or in connection with a
Purchase Price Adjustment or a breach of the representations or warranties
in Sections 3.01, 3.02, 3.03, 3.04, or 3.10. An Indemnifying Person shall
have no liability to indemnify the Indemnified Person for any Losses
resolved by the parties as a Purchase Price Adjustment.

         SECTION 9.03. Procedures; No Waiver.

              (a) All claims for indemnification by an Indemnified Person
pursuant to this Article IX shall be made in accordance with the provisions
of this Section 9.03.

              (b) A party entitled to indemnification under this Article IX
(the "Indemnified Person") shall give prompt written notification to the
Person obligated to provide such indemnification (the "Indemnifying
Person") of the commencement of any action, suit or proceeding relating to
a claim between the parties or a third party claim for which
indemnification pursuant to this Article IX may be sought; provided,
however, that no delay on the part of the Indemnified Person in notifying
the Indemnifying Person shall relieve the Indemnifying Person from any
liability or obligation under this Article IX except to the extent of any
damage or liability caused solely by or arising solely out of such delay.
With respect to any claim by a third party, within 20 days after delivery
of such notification, the Indemnifying Person may, upon written notice
thereof to the Indemnified Person, assume control of the defense of such
action, suit or proceeding with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the
Indemnified Person; provided that (i) the Indemnifying Person acknowledges
in writing to the Indemnified Person that the Indemnifying Person shall
indemnify the Indemnified Person with respect to all elements of such
action, suit or proceeding and any damages, fines, costs or other
liabilities that may be assessed against the Indemnified Person in
connection with such action, suit or proceeding, and (ii) the third party
seeks monetary damages only. If the Indemnifying Person does not so assume
control of such defense, the Indemnified Person shall control such defense.
The party not controlling such defense may participate therein at its own
expense; provided that if the Indemnifying Person assumes control of such
defense and the Indemnified Person is advised by counsel in writing that
the Indemnifying Person and the Indemnified Person may have conflicting
interests or different defenses available with respect to such action, suit
or proceeding, the reasonable fees and expenses of a single counsel per
applicable jurisdiction to the Indemnified Person shall be considered
"Losses" for purposes of this Agreement and shall be paid by the
Indemnifying Party. The party controlling such defense shall keep the other
party advised of the status of such action, suit or proceeding and the
defense thereof and shall consider in good faith recommendations made by
the other party with respect thereto. An Indemnified Person shall not agree
to any settlement of such action, suit or proceeding without the prior
written consent of the Indemnifying Person, which shall not be unreasonably
withheld or delayed. The Indemnifying Person shall not agree to any
settlement or the entry of a judgment in any action, suit or proceeding
without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Person, which shall
not be unreasonably withheld (it being understood that it is reasonable to
withhold such consent if, among other things, the settlement or the entry
of a judgment (A) lacks a complete release of the Indemnified Person for
all liability with respect thereto or (B) imposes any liability or
obligation on the Indemnified Person).

         SECTION 9.04. Sole Remedy. Except for fraud, and subject to any
party's right for equitable relief, the indemnification provisions of this
Article IX and the provisions of the Escrow Agreement shall constitute the
sole and exclusive remedy of the parties hereto for any inaccuracy,
untruth, incompleteness or other breach of or failure to perform any
covenant made in this Agreement, and the parties each waive any other
remedy, which they or any other Person entitled to indemnification
hereunder may have at Law with respect thereto.

         SECTION 9.05. Adjustments to Indemnification Payments. Any payment
made by either the Seller to Buyer Parties, on the one hand, or by the
Buyer to Seller Parties, on the other hand, pursuant to this Article IX in
respect of any claim shall be reduced by any insurance proceeds realized by
and paid to the Indemnified Person in respect of such claim net of any cost
incurred due to such insurance recoveries, including, without limitation,
retrospective premium adjustments and experience-based premium adjustments.
The Indemnified Person shall use its reasonable efforts to make insurance
claims relating to any claim for which it is seeking indemnification
pursuant to this Article IX; provided that the Indemnified Person shall not
be obligated to make such an insurance claim if the Indemnified Person in
its reasonable judgment believes that the cost of pursuing such an
insurance claim together with any corresponding increase in insurance
premiums or other chargebacks to the Indemnified Person would exceed the
value of the claim for which the Indemnified Person is seeking
indemnification.

                                 ARTICLE X

                                TERMINATION

         SECTION 10.01. Grounds for Termination. This Agreement may be
terminated at any time prior to the Closing:

              (i) by mutual written agreement of the parties; or

              (ii) by the Seller, on the one hand, or by the Buyer, on the
         other hand, if the Closing shall not have occurred within thirty
         (30) days following the date hereof (the "Expiration Date");
         provided, however, that if the only condition to Closing not
         satisfied is the condition set forth in Section 8.02(d), such
         Expiration Date shall automatically be extended, without any
         action required by any of the parties hereto, by an additional
         seven (7) days (the "Extension Period"); provided, further, that
         if, at the end of such Extension Period, the condition to Closing
         set forth in Section 8.02(d) is not satisfied, and remains the
         only condition to Closing not satisfied, such Extension Period
         shall automatically be extended, without any action required by
         any of the parties hereto, by an additional seven (7) days (the
         "Second Extension Period"); provided, further, that the right to
         terminate this Agreement under this Section 10.01(ii) shall not be
         available to a party whose material misrepresentation, material
         breach of warranty or failure to fulfill any material obligation
         under this Agreement has been the cause of, or resulted in, the
         failure of the Closing to occur on or before such date; or

              (iii) by the Seller, on the one hand, or by the Buyer and the
         Acquisition Sub, on the other hand, if there is or has been a
         material breach, failure to fulfill or default on the part of the
         other party of any of the representations and warranties contained
         herein or in the due and timely performance and satisfaction of
         any of the covenants, agreements or conditions contained herein,
         and the curing of such default shall not have been made before the
         Expiration Date; or

              (iv) by the Seller, on the one hand, or by the Buyer, on the
         other hand, if there shall be a final nonappealable order of a
         Federal or state court in effect preventing the consummation of
         the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; or there shall be
         any action taken, or any statute, rule, regulation or order
         enacted, promulgated or issued or deemed applicable to the
         transactions by any government body, agency, official or authority
         which would make the consummation of the transactions illegal.

         SECTION 10.02. Effect of Termination. If this Agreement is
terminated as permitted by Section 10.01, except as set forth below, such
termination shall be without liability of either party (or any shareholder,
director, officer, employee, agent, consultant or representative of such
party) to the other party to this Agreement; provided that if such
termination shall result from the fraud, willful misconduct or gross
negligence of either party in the failure to satisfy a condition to the
performance of the obligations of the other party or to perform a covenant
of this Agreement or from any act of fraud, willful misconduct or gross
negligence in connection with a breach by either party to this Agreement,
such party shall, notwithstanding the provisions of Section 11.03, be fully
liable for any and all Losses incurred or suffered by the other party as a
result of such failure or breach. The provisions of this Section 10.02,
Section 6.04 and Section 11.03 shall survive any termination hereof
pursuant to Section 10.01.


                                ARTICLE XI

                               MISCELLANEOUS

         deposited in a regularly maintained receptacle for the deposit of
         United States mail, addressed and postage prepaid as aforesaid.

         SECTION 11.02. Amendments; No Waivers.

              (a) Any provisions of this Agreement may be amended or waived
prior to the Closing Date if, and only if, such amendment or waiver is in
writing and signed, in the case of an amendment, by the Buyer, Acquisition
Sub and the Seller, or in the case of a waiver, by the party against whom
the waiver is to be effective.

              (b) No failure or delay by any party in exercising any right,
power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall
any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further
exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.
The rights and remedies herein provided shall be cumulative and not
exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by Law.

         SECTION 11.03. Expenses. Except as otherwise provided herein, all
costs and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement shall be paid
by the party incurring such cost or expense.

         SECTION 11.04. Successors and Assigns. Except as otherwise
provided in this Agreement, no party hereto shall assign this Agreement or
any rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of
the other parties hereto and any such attempted assignment without such
prior written consent shall be void and of no force and effect. The
provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit
of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns.

         SECTION 11.05. Governing Law. THE INTERNAL LAWS, AND NOT THE LAWS
OF CONFLICTS (OTHER THAN SECTION 5-1401 OF THE GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW OF
THE STATE OF NEW YORK), OF NEW YORK SHALL GOVERN THE ENFORCEABILITY AND
VALIDITY OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE CONSTRUCTION OF ITS TERMS AND THE
INTERPRETATION OF THE RIGHTS AND DUTIES OF THE PARTIES.

         SECTION 11.06. Jurisdiction. Any suit, action or proceeding
seeking to enforce any provision of, or based on any matter arising out of
or in connection with, this Agreement or the transactions contemplated
hereby may be brought in any federal or state court located in the County
and State of New York, and each of the parties hereby consents to the
jurisdiction of such courts (and of the appropriate appellate courts
therefrom) in any such suit, action or proceeding and irrevocably waives,
to the fullest extent permitted by Law, any objection which it may now or
hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any such suit, action or
proceeding in any such court or that any such suit, action or proceeding
which is brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient
forum. Process in any such suit, action or proceeding may be served on any
party anywhere in the world, whether within or without the jurisdiction of
any such court. Without limiting the foregoing, every party agrees that
service of process on such party as provided in Section 11.01 shall be
deemed effective service of process on such party.

         SECTION 11.07. Waiver of Jury Trial. THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY
IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL
PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS
CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.

         SECTION 11.08. Counterparts; Effectiveness. This Agreement may be
signed in any number of counterparts (including by facsimile), each of
which shall be an original, with the same effect as if the signatures
thereto and hereto were upon the same instrument. This Agreement shall
become effective when each party hereto shall have received a counterpart
hereof signed by the other party hereto.

         SECTION 11.09. Entire Agreement; Severability. This Agreement
(including the Exhibits and Schedules hereto), the Ancillary Agreements and
the Confidentiality Agreement, all constitute the entire agreement between
the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all
prior agreements, understandings and negotiations, both written and oral,
between the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement.
No representation, inducement, promise, understanding, condition or
warranty not set forth herein or therein has been made or relied upon by
either party hereto. None of this Agreement, the Ancillary Agreements or
the Confidentiality Agreement is intended to confer upon any Person other
than the parties hereto any rights or remedies hereunder. If any term or
other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being
enforced by any rule of Law or public policy, all other terms and
provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and
effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the purchase and sale
of the Purchased Assets is not affected in any manner materially adverse to
any party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is
invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the parties hereto shall
negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the
original intent of the parties as closely as possible in a mutually
acceptable manner to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law in
order that the purchase and sale of the Purchased Assets may be consummated
as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible. The foregoing is
in addition to and not in place of the severability provisions in Section
5.04.

         SECTION 11.10. Headings; Interpretation. The descriptive headings
contained in this Agreement are included for convenience of reference only
and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this
Agreement. The parties have participated jointly in the negotiation and
drafting of this Agreement. In the event an ambiguity or question of intent
or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted
jointly by the parties, and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise
favoring or disfavoring any party by virtue of the authorship of any
provisions of this Agreement.

         SECTION 11.11. Incorporation of Exhibits and Schedules. The
Exhibits and Schedules referred to in this Agreement are incorporated
herein and made a part hereof.

         SECTION 11.12. Specific Performance. In addition to any other
remedies that any party hereto may have at Law or in equity, the Buyer and
the Seller hereby acknowledge that the transactions contemplated by this
Agreement are unique, and that the harm to a party (the "Non-Breaching
Party") resulting from any breach by another party (the "Breaching Party")
of its obligations under this Agreement cannot be adequately compensated by
damages. Accordingly, the Non-Breaching Party shall have the right to have
all obligations, undertakings, agreements, covenants and other provisions
of this Agreement specifically performed by the Breaching Party, and the
Non-Breaching Party shall have the right to obtain an order or decree of
such specific performance in any of the courts set forth in Section 11.06.
