by either party, which arbitration will be held pursuant to the then-current
rules of the American Arbitration Association.

"Closing Date").

2.       REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF SELLER.

         Seller hereby represents and warrants to Purchaser as follows:

         2.1  ORGANIZATION; POWER AND AUTHORITY. Seller is a limited liability
company duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of
the State of California. Seller has the limited liability company power and
authority to enter into and perform its obligations under this Agreement. All
actions on Seller's part required for the lawful execution and delivery of this
Agreement have been taken. Upon execution and delivery of this Agreement, the
terms of this Agreement will be enforceable, valid and binding obligations of
Seller, except as limited by (i) the application of laws relating to bankruptcy,
insolvency and the relief of debtors and (ii) general principles of equity.

         2.2  COMPLIANCE WITH OTHER INSTRUMENTS. The execution, delivery and
performance of this Agreement by Seller (i) will not result in the breach of the
terms of, or result in a termination or modification of, or constitute a default
under, or conflict with, any agreement or other instrument by which Seller is
bound or any judgment, decree, order or award of any court, governmental body or
arbitrator or any applicable law, rule or regulation, and (ii) does not require
the consent of any other person or entity.

         2.3  ASSETS. Seller holds good and valid title to each of the Assets,
and transfers such title to Purchaser, free and clear of all liens, mortgages,
encumbrances and claims of every kind, nature or character. Prior to the Closing
Date, Seller has taken all measures and precautions


                                       3.


<PAGE>   4


reasonably necessary to protect and maintain the confidentiality and secrecy of
the Assets. The Assets (i) do not infringe or conflict with any intellectual
property right of any third party and (ii) have not been licensed to any third
party on an exclusive basis.

         2.4  INVESTMENT REPRESENTATIONS. Seller understands that the Shares
have not been registered under the Securities Act. Seller also understands that
the Securities are being offered and sold pursuant to an exemption from
registration contained in the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the
"Securities Act") based in part upon Seller's representations contained in the
Agreement.

         (a)  SELLER BEARS ECONOMIC RISK. Seller has substantial experience in
evaluating and investing in private placement transactions of securities in
companies similar to the Purchaser so that it is capable of evaluating the
merits and risks of its investment in the Purchaser and has the capacity to
protect its own interests. Seller must bear the economic risk of this investment
indefinitely unless the Shares are registered pursuant to the Securities Act, or
an exemption from registration thereunder is available. Seller understands that
the Purchaser has no present intention of registering the Shares. Seller also
understands that there is no assurance that any exemption from registration
under the Securities Act will be available and that, even if available, such
exemption may not allow Seller to transfer all or any portion of the Shares
under the circumstances, in the amounts or at the times Seller might propose.

         (b)  ACQUISITION FOR OWN ACCOUNT. Seller is acquiring the Shares for
Seller's own account for investment only, and not with a view towards their
distribution.

         (c)  PURCHASER CAN PROTECT ITS INTEREST. Seller represents that by
reason of its management's business and financial experience, Seller has the
capacity to protect its own interests in connection with the transactions
contemplated in this Agreement. Further, Seller is aware of no publication of
any advertisement in connection with the transactions contemplated in this
Agreement.

         (d)  [Deleted.]

         (e)  PURCHASER INFORMATION. Seller has had an opportunity to discuss
the Purchaser's business, management and financial affairs with directors,
officers and management of the Purchaser and has had the opportunity to review
the Purchaser's publicly filed documents, filed pursuant to the Securities Act
or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or amended (the "Exchange Act"). Seller
has also had the opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers from the
Purchaser and its management regarding the terms and conditions of this
investment.

         (f)  RULE 144. Seller acknowledges and agrees that the Shares must be
held indefinitely unless they are subsequently registered under the Securities
Act or an exemption from such registration is available. Seller has been advised
or is aware of the provisions of Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act
as in effect from time to time, which permits limited resale of shares purchased
in a private placement subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions,
including, among other things: the availability of certain current public
information about the Purchaser, the resale occurring following the required
holding period under Rule 144 and the number of shares being sold during any
three-month period not exceeding specified limitations.

                                       4.

Seller in ensuring and documenting Seller's compliance with Rule 144 in the

warranties made by the Seller in this Section 2, contains any untrue statement
of a material fact or omits to state any material fact necessary in order to
