the Company or any Subsidiaries in an amount exceeding, in the aggregate,
$50,000, and (ii) will not violate any provision of the Charter or the Bylaws of

in all material respects when filed. The Company and each of its Subsidiaries
have timely paid all material Taxes required to be paid by any of them for
periods ending on or before the Closing Date, or with respect to any period that
ends after the Closing Date, the portion of such period up to and including the
Closing Date, other than those Taxes being contested in good faith, for which an
adequate reserve has been established in the Financial Statements in accordance
with GAAP.

                  (b) All material Taxes that the Company or any of its
Subsidiaries is or was required by law to withhold or collect through the
Closing Date have been duly withheld or collected and, to the extent required,
have been paid to the proper Governmental Authority. There are no Liens with
respect to Taxes upon any of the properties or assets, real or personal,
tangible or intangible, of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries except for
statutory liens for Taxes not yet due and payable.

                  (c) Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is
currently the beneficiary of any waiver or extension with respect to any Taxes
or Tax Return, no Tax deficiency has been asserted, no Tax Return of the Company
or any of its Subsidiaries is or has been currently under audit or examination
by any Governmental Authority and no such audit or examination is pending or has
been prepared. No issue has been raised in any audit or examination of any Tax
Return by any Governmental Authority that, if raised with respect to any period
not so audited or examined, could be expected to result in a proposed
deficiency.

Subsidiaries or, to the Company's Knowledge, against any person or entity whose
liability for any Environmental Claim either the Company or its Subsidiaries has
retained or assumed either contractually or by operation of law.

                  (c) Without in any way limiting the generality of the
foregoing, there are no on-site or off-site locations where the Company or any

of the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("PTO") as the sole assignee of
record of each of the patents and applications listed on Schedule 3.24(b) (the

reasonable patent protection relative to the subject matter thereof.

cause to be elected to the Company's Board of Directors, effective as of the
Closing, one person (the "FEL Director") designated by FEL who is an Eligible
Person. "Eligible Person" means an individual (i) who is reasonably acceptable
to the Company's Board of Directors, (ii) whose election to the Company's Board
of Directors would not, in the opinion of counsel for the Company, violate or be
in conflict with, or result in any material limitation on the ownership or
operation of any business or assets of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries
under, any Applicable Law and (iii) who has agreed in writing with the Company
to comply with Section 6.4 and to resign as a director of the Company if

stockholders of the Company at which the FEL Director comes up for reelection,
the Company shall use reasonable efforts to cause the FEL Director (or another
Eligible Person designated by FEL) to be included in the list of candidates
recommended by the Company's Board of Directors for election to the Company's
Board of Directors. Upon the resignation, removal or death of any FEL Director
on the Company's Board of Directors, the Company shall use reasonable efforts to
have the vacancy thereby created filled with an Eligible Person designated by
FEL.

own beneficially at least seventy percent (70%) of the Shares purchased by FEL
pursuant hereto, unless after such dispositions PPG, FEL and any of their
Affiliates shall continue to collectively own beneficially at least five percent
(5%) of the Company's outstanding voting securities, (ii) the violation in any
material respect of this Article V by either FEL or (iii) 30 days' prior written
notice of termination from FEL, FEL shall no longer be entitled to designate for
election to the Company's Board of Directors a representative pursuant to this
Section 5.3. At such time, if requested by the Company, the designee of FEL
shall resign from the Company's Board of Directors.

through (d), the Company hereby agrees that in the event that the FEL Director
is not elected to the Company's Board of Directors, FEL, PPG or their respective
Permitted Transferees, if there shall be any, shall have the ability to appoint

Company's Board of Directors or any committee thereof, and such Board
Representative shall be provided with notices of all meetings of the Company's
Board of Directors, as well as copies of minutes, resolutions and other
instruments of, or communications to, the Board of Directors; provided that
neither FEL, PPG, nor their Permitted Transferees, nor the Board Representative
shall have any duties, responsibilities or liability by virtue of attendance at
such meetings or the failure to attend the same; provided further, this Section
5.3(d) shall not be applicable at any time when FEL shall not be entitled to

Efforts. The Company shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to cause all
of the obligations imposed upon it in this Agreement to be duly complied with
and to cause all conditions precedent to the obligations of the Company and the
Purchasers to be satisfied. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this
Agreement, the Company shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to take, or
cause to be taken, all action, and to do, or cause to be done, all things
necessary, proper or advisable consistent with Applicable Law to consummate and
make effective in the most expeditious manner practicable the transactions
contemplated hereby.

            Section 5.5 Consents and Approvals. The Company shall (a) use its
commercially reasonable efforts to obtain all necessary consents, waivers,
authorizations and approvals of all Governmental Authorities and of all other
persons, firms or corporations required in connection with the execution,
delivery and performance by them of this Agreement, any other Document or any of
the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, and (b) diligently assist and
cooperate with the Purchasers in preparing and filing all documents required to
be submitted by the Purchasers to any Governmental Authority in connection with
such transactions and in obtaining any governmental consents, waivers,
authorizations or approvals which may be required to be obtained by the

cooperation shall include, without limitation, timely furnishing to the
Purchasers all information concerning the Company and its Subsidiaries that
counsel to the Purchasers reasonably determines is required to be included in
such documents or would be helpful in obtaining any such required consent,
waiver, authorization or approval).

prepare and timely file or cause to be prepared and timely filed in a manner

and for which adequate reserves (without regard to deferred Tax assets and
liabilities) shall be established on the financial statements of the Company or
any such Subsidiary.

Efforts. The Purchaser shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to cause
all of the obligations imposed upon it in this Agreement to be duly complied

result of a breach of this provision by the Purchaser), (b) such information was
available to the Purchaser on a non-confidential basis from a source (other than
the Company or its representatives) that, to the Purchaser's Knowledge, is not

law to disclose such information; provided, that in an event specified in clause
(c), the Purchaser shall provide the Company with prompt prior written notice of
such required disclosure, the Purchaser shall disclose only that portion of the
confidential information that the Purchaser is advised by counsel is legally
required, where the timing and circumstances so permit, prior to any disclosure
the Purchaser shall provide the Company with an opportunity to seek a protective
order or other appropriate remedy, and the Purchaser shall exercise reasonable
efforts to obtain assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded such
information. The Purchaser agrees that it will comply, and will cause its
representatives to comply, with all U.S. securities laws applicable to the

securities when in possession of such information. The Purchaser agrees not to
