      WHEREAS, CDS and the Publisher entered into a Subscription Fulfillment

      WHEREAS, the parties now desire to further amend the Agreement to revise
certain fees and charges, extend the Term of the Agreement, and make other
changes as hereinafter set forth.

      NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements
set forth herein, it is agreed by and between the parties hereto as follows:

      1. Section I, CDS Services, of the Agreement is hereby amended to add an
introductory sentence to read as follows:

            "The parties mutually agree that CDS will convert the Magazine from
      CDS's Batch System to CDS's SERV System after June 30, 2002, with the
      first-available date being July 2002. If the Publisher desires to convert
      the Magazine to the SERV System in July 2002, it shall notify CDS in
      writing within six (6) weeks from the date of this Fifth Amendment. SERV
      System Service descriptions that will apply following completion of
      conversion of the Magazine to the SERV System are set forth in Attachment
      I hereto, which is hereby made a part hereof."

      2. Section 2.1, as previously amended, is hereby amended to add "(a)"
before the first paragraph (includes the table), "(b)" before the second
paragraph (billing mechanism), and "(c)" before the third paragraph (change in
number of issues), and Section 2.1 is further amended to add a new paragraph (d)
to read as follows:

            "(d) If the number of manually key-entered transactions (from mail
      documents received) during a contract year is fewer than 550,000, the
      Publisher will receive a discount of two percent (2%) off the Annual
      Service Charge per Subscription rate for the following contract year.* If
      the number of manually key-entered transactions (from mail documents
      received) during a contract year is 550,000 or over 550,000 but below
      750,000, the Publisher will receive a discount of one percent (1%) off the
      Annual Service Charge per Subscription rate for the following contract
      year.* If the number of manually

<PAGE>

      key-entered transactions (from mail documents received) during a contract
      year is 750,000 or more, no discount shall apply. The Age of Operations
      report will be used to determine the number of transactions that were
      manually key entered. The foregoing discount provisions are subject to the
      Magazine having an active subscription file of at least 2,300,000 during
      the contract year.

      *The contract year will be measured from July 1 through the following June
      30. Tracking of the volume of manually key-entered transactions will
      commence on July 1, 2001. Following June 30, 2002 and following each June
      30 thereafter, the number of manually key-entered transactions will be
      determined for the contract year just ended using the monthly Age of
      Operations reports. If the Publisher qualifies for a discount as described
      above in this paragraph (d), then the applicable discount will be applied
      to the Annual Service Charge per Subscription rate for the next contract
      year."

      3. Section 2.3 of the Agreement is hereby amended to restate paragraph (e)
in its entirety and to add a new paragraph (f) as follows:

      "(e)  Two (2) suppression files per year will be provided at no additional
            charge to the Publisher, with the understanding that, if requested
            by the Publisher, one such suppression file may be used for the
            Publisher's June mailing.

      (f)   One (1) expire pull (selection) per year will be provided at no
            additional charge to the Publisher."

      4. Section 2.5(a) of the Agreement is hereby amended to add a new item
(xi) to read as follows:

            "(xi) Labelaire.............................................****/M

                  Add one working day to mail date schedule for each 50M
                  requiring labelaire operations.

                  If the quantity is less than 500 pieces, the job wll be
                  charged at the hand rate."

      5. Section 2.9 of the Agreement, as previously amended, is hereby amended
to add a sentence at the end of the paragraph to read as follows:

      "CDS will provide REACT reports to the Publisher electronically commencing
      July 2001. In addition, other fulfillment reports, if requested by the
      Publisher, will be provided electronically in a timeframe mutually agreed
      upon by both parties."

      6. Section 2.17 of the Agreement, as previously amended, is hereby amended

      the Agreement as escalated to the date hereof (including all of the fees
      and charges set forth in this Fifth Amendment) shall remain in effect
      until June 30, 2003, and on July 1, 2003 and each July 1 thereafter will

      "The representative(s) of both parties may be changed from time to time in
      which event the other party shall be notified as promptly as possible,
      with the understanding that CDS will use its reasonable best efforts to
      notify the Publisher of any such change at least ninety (90) days in
      advance, except in the case of resignation or termination of the employee,
      and each CDS replacement added to the account management team for the
      Publisher's account shall be subject to the approval of the Publisher."

the following sentence at the end:

      "CDS will provide upselling scripting capabilities to its customer service
      representatives no later than January 1, 2002. The on-going charges to

      to the charges paid by other CDS clients of comparable size and having
      comparable file size, frequency, and number of transactions on an
      annualized basis and requiring CDS to perform substantially the same
      Services."
