                                    ---------

         Debtor covenants and agrees with Secured Party that until the
Obligations are paid and performed in full, and the rights and obligations of
Secured Party and the Lessors under the Restated Lease Agreement and other
Credit Documents have expired or have been terminated:

     Section 4.1 Encumbrances. Except as otherwise permitted by the terms of the
Restated Lease Agreement relating to disposition of assets, Debtor shall not
create, permit or suffer to exist, and shall defend the Collateral against, any
Lien or other encumbrance on the Collateral except for those Permitted
Encumbrances (if any) which are expressly permitted to attach to the Collateral

Debtor shall, subject to the terms of the Restated Lease Agreement, (a) execute
and deliver to Secured Party such financing statements as Secured Party may from
time to time require, (b) take such action as Secured Party may request to
permit Secured Party to have control over any Collateral, (c) deliver to Secured
Party all Collateral the possession of which is necessary to perfect the
security interest therein, duly endorsed and/or accompanied by duly executed

Secured Party; and (d) execute and deliver to Secured Party such other
agreements, documents, and instruments as Secured Party may require to perfect
and maintain the validity, effectiveness, and priority of the Liens intended to
be created by this Agreement or any other Credit Document. In the event Debtor
ever fails, upon request of Secured Party, to promptly (and in any event within
two days of such request) execute and file one or more financing or continuation
statements, and/or amendments thereto, relating to all or any part of the
Collateral, Debtor authorizes Secured Party to file financing or continuation
statements, and/or amendments thereto without the signature of Debtor where
permitted by law. A carbon, photographic or other reproduction of this Agreement
or of any financing statement covering the Collateral or any part thereof shall
be sufficient as a financing statement and may be filed as a financing
statement.

     Section 4.3 Corporate Changes. Debtor shall not change its name, identity
or corporate structure in any manner that might make any financing statement
filed in connection with this Agreement seriously misleading unless Debtor shall
have given Secured Party thirty (30) days prior written notice thereof and shall
have taken all action deemed necessary or appropriate by Secured Party to
protect its Liens and the perfection and priority thereof. Debtor shall not
change its principal place of business, chief executive office or the place
where it keeps its books and records unless it shall have given Secured Party
thirty (30) days prior written notice thereof and shall have taken all action
deemed necessary or appropriate by Secured Party to cause its security interest
in the Collateral to be perfected with the priority required by this Agreement.

     Section 4.4 Notification. Debtor shall promptly notify Secured Party of (a)
any Lien, encumbrance or claim (other than Permitted Encumbrances) that has
attached to or been made or asserted against any of the Collateral, (b) any
material change in any of the Collateral, including, without limitation, any
material damage to or loss of Collateral, and (c) the occurrence of any other
event or condition (including, without limitation, matters as to Lien priority)
that could reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the
Collateral or the security interest created hereunder.

     Section 4.5 Voting Rights, Distributions, Etc.

          (a)  So long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be
               continuing:

               by the Restated Lease Agreement; provided, however, that any and
               all

                          (A) Restricted Payments paid or payable in violation
                    of the terms of the Restated Lease Agreement,

                          (B) Restricted Payments paid or payable other than in
                    cash in respect of, and instruments and other Property
                    received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of,

                          (C) Restricted Payments hereafter paid or payable in

Collateral and shall, if received by Debtor, be received in trust for the
benefit of Secured Party, be segregated from the other Property or funds of
Debtor and be forthwith delivered to Secured Party as Collateral in the same
form as so received (with any necessary endorsement). All amounts (other than
amounts described in clauses (ii)(A) through (D) above) received by Secured
Party in respect of any Collateral shall be either (1) promptly released to
Debtor, so long as no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be
continuing or (2) if any Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be
continuing, held by Secured Party and (if an Event of Default shall have
occurred and be continuing) applied as provided by the Restated Lease Agreement.
During the continuance of any Default, any dividends, interest or other
distributions (whether in cash, securities, Property or otherwise) received by
Debtor with respect to any Collateral shall be held by Debtor in trust for the
benefit of Secured Party and, during the continuance of any Event of Default,
upon the request of Secured Party, shall be delivered promptly to Secured Party
to hold as Collateral, as Secured Party may in its discretion determine. If such
Event of Default is waived or cured to the satisfaction of Secured Party, any
such distributions received by Secured Party (except those of the types
described in clauses (ii)(A) through (D) above which shall not be released to
Debtor) shall be returned promptly to Debtor (provided that no other Default or
Event of Default exists). If such Default remains uncured and becomes an Event
of Default, any such distributions will be applied by Secured Party as provided
in the Restated Lease Agreement.

               (b)  Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event
                    of Default:

                     (i) Secured Party may, without notice to Debtor, transfer

               (in cash or otherwise) and all liens, security, rights, remedies
               and claims of Debtor with respect thereto held by Secured Party
               hereunder, and Secured Party or its nominee may thereafter, after
               delivery of notice to Debtor, exercise all voting and corporate
               rights at any meeting of any corporation, partnership or other
               business entity issuing any of the Collateral and

               other rights, privileges or options pertaining to any of the
               Collateral as if it were the absolute owner thereof, including,
               without limitation, the right to exchange at its discretion any
               and all of the Collateral upon the merger, consolidation,
               reorganization, recapitalization or other readjustment of any
               corporation, partnership or other business entity issuing any of
               such Collateral or upon the exercise by the Pledged Entities or
               Secured Party of any right, privilege or option pertaining to any
               of the Collateral, and in connection therewith, to deposit and
               deliver any and all of the Collateral with any committee,
               depositary, transfer agent, registrar or other designated agency
               upon such terms and conditions as it may determine, all without
               liability except to account for property actually received by it,
               but Secured Party shall have no duty to exercise any of the
               aforesaid rights, privileges or options, and neither Secured
               Party nor any Lessor shall be responsible for any failure to do
               so or delay in so doing.

                     (ii) All rights of Debtor to exercise the voting and other
               consensual rights which it would otherwise be entitled to
               exercise pursuant to Section 4.5(a)(i) and to receive the
               dividends, interest and other distributions which it would
               otherwise be authorized to receive and retain pursuant to Section
               4.5(a)(ii) shall be suspended until such Event of Default shall
               no longer exist, and all such rights shall, until such Event of
               Default shall no longer exist, thereupon become vested in Secured
               Party which shall thereupon have the sole right to exercise such
               voting and other consensual rights and to receive and hold as
               Collateral such dividends, interest and other distributions.

                     (iii) All dividends, interest and other distributions which
               are received by Debtor contrary to the provisions of this Section
               4.5(b) shall be received in trust for the benefit of Secured
               Party, shall be segregated from other funds of Debtor and shall
               be forthwith paid over to Secured Party as Collateral in the same
               form as so received (with any necessary endorsement).

                     (iv) Debtor shall execute and deliver (or cause to be
               executed and delivered) to Secured Party all such proxies and
               other instruments as Secured Party may request for the purpose of
               enabling Secured Party to exercise the voting and other rights
               which it is entitled to exercise pursuant to this Section 4.5(b)
               and to receive the dividends, interest and other distributions
               which it is entitled to receive and retain pursuant to this
               Section 4.5(b). The foregoing shall not in any way limit Secured
               Party's power and authority granted pursuant to Section 5.1.

     Section 4.6 Transfers and Other Liens: Additional Investments.

               (a) Except as may be expressly permitted by the terms of the
Restated Lease Agreement, Debtor shall not grant any option with respect to,
exchange, sell or otherwise dispose of any of the Collateral or create or permit
to exist any Lien upon or with respect to any of the Collateral except for the
Liens created hereby and Permitted Encumbrances.


                                      -9-

               (b) Debtor agrees that it will (i) cause the Pledged Entities not
to issue any Capital Stock, notes or other securities or instruments in addition
to or in substitution for any of the Pledged Shares, except (A) with prior
written notice to Secured Party, to Debtor or (B) with the written consent of
Secured Party, to any Person other than Debtor, (ii) pledge hereunder,
immediately upon its acquisition (directly or indirectly) thereof, any and all
such Capital Stock, notes or other securities or instruments, and (iii) promptly
(and in any event within three Business Days) deliver to Secured Party an
Amendment, duly executed by Debtor, in substantially the form of Exhibit A (an
"Amendment"), in respect of such Capital Stock, notes or other securities or
instruments, together with all certificates, notes or other securities or
instruments representing or evidencing the same. Debtor hereby (1) authorizes
Secured Party to attach each Amendment to this Agreement, (2) agrees that all
such Capital Stock, notes or other securities or instruments listed on any
Amendment delivered to Secured Party shall for all purposes hereunder constitute
Pledged Shares, and (3) is deemed to have made, upon such delivery, the
representations and warranties contained in Article 3 with respect to such
Pledged Shares.

     Section 4.7 Possession: Reasonable Care. Regardless of whether a Default or
an Event of Default has occurred or is continuing, Secured Party shall have the
right to hold in its possession all Pledged Shares or Pledged Indebtedness
pledged, assigned or transferred hereunder and from time to time constituting a
portion of the Collateral. Secured Party may, from time to time, in its sole
discretion, appoint one or more agents (which in no case shall be Debtor or an
Affiliate of Debtor) to hold physical custody, for the account of Secured Party,
of any or all of the Pledged Shares or Pledged Indebtedness. Secured Party shall
be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of
the Pledged Shares or Pledged Indebtedness in its possession if the Pledged
Shares or Pledged Indebtedness are accorded treatment substantially equal to
that which Secured Party accords its own property, it being understood that
Secured Party shall not have any responsibility for (a) ascertaining or taking
action with respect to calls, conversions, exchanges, maturities, tenders or
other matters relative to any Pledged Shares or Pledged Indebtedness, whether or
not Secured Party has or is deemed to have knowledge of such matters, or (b)
taking any necessary steps to preserve rights against any parties with respect
to any Collateral. Following the occurrence and during the continuation of an
Event of Default, Secured Party shall be entitled to take possession of all
Collateral.

                             Rights of Secured Party
                             -----------------------

     Section 5.1 Power of Attorney. Debtor hereby irrevocably constitutes and
appoints Secured Party and any officer or agent thereof, with full power of
substitution, as its true and lawful attorney-in-fact with full irrevocable
power and authority in the name of Debtor or in its own name, to take, after the
occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, any and all action
and to execute any and all documents and instruments which Secured Party at any
time and from time to time deems necessary or desirable to accomplish the
purposes of this Agreement and, without limiting the generality of the
foregoing, Debtor hereby gives Secured Party the power and right on behalf of
Debtor and in its own name to do any of the following after the occurrence and
during the continuance of an Event of Default, without notice to or the consent
of Debtor:


                                      -10-
<PAGE>


          (a) to demand, sue for, collect or receive, in the name of Debtor or
in its own name, any money or Property at any time payable or receivable on
account of or in exchange for any of the Collateral and, in connection
therewith, endorse checks, notes, drafts, acceptances, money orders, documents
of title or any other instruments for the payment of money under the Collateral;

          (b) to pay or discharge taxes, Liens or other encumbrances levied or
placed on or threatened against the Collateral;

          (c) (i) to receive payment of and receipt for any and all monies,
claims and other amounts due and to become due at any time in respect of or
arising out of any Collateral; (ii) to sign and endorse any assignments,
proxies, stock powers, verifications and notices relating to the Collateral;
(iii) to commence and prosecute any suit, action or proceeding at law or in
equity in any court of competent jurisdiction to collect the Collateral or any
part thereof and to enforce any other right in respect of any Collateral; (iv)
to defend any suit, action or proceeding brought against Debtor with respect to
any Collateral; (v) to settle, compromise or adjust any suit, action or
proceeding described above and, in connection therewith, to give such discharges
or releases as Secured Party may deem appropriate; (vi) to exchange any of the
Collateral for other Property upon any merger, consolidation, reorganization,
recapitalization or other readjustment of the Pledged Entities and, in
connection therewith, deposit any of the Collateral with any committee,
depositary, transfer agent, registrar or other designated agency upon such terms
as Secured Party may determine; (vii) to add or release any guarantor, endorser,
surety or other party to any of the Collateral; (viii) to renew, extend or
otherwise change the terms and conditions of any of the Collateral; (ix) to
make, settle, compromise or adjust any claims under or pertaining to any of the
Collateral; and (x) to sell, transfer, pledge, convey, make any agreement with
respect to or otherwise deal with any of the Collateral as fully and completely
as though Secured Party were the absolute owner thereof for all purposes, and to
do, at Secured Party's option and Debtor's expense, at any time, or from time to
time, all acts and things which Secured Party deems necessary to protect,
preserve, maintain or realize upon the Collateral and Secured Party's security
interest therein.

         This power of attorney is a power coupled with an interest and shall be
irrevocable until this Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms.
Secured Party shall be under no duty to exercise or withhold the exercise of any
of the rights, powers, privileges and options expressly or implicitly granted to
Secured Party in this Agreement, and shall not be liable for any failure to do
so or any delay in doing so. Neither Secured Party nor any Person designated by
Secured Party shall be liable for any act or omission or for any error of
judgment or any mistake of fact or law except for gross negligence or willful
misconduct or as set forth in Section 4.7. This power of attorney is conferred
on Secured Party solely to protect, preserve, maintain and realize upon its
security interest in the Collateral. Secured Party shall not be responsible for
any decline in the value of the Collateral and shall not be required to take any
steps to preserve rights against prior parties or to protect, preserve or
maintain any Lien given to secure the Collateral.

     Section 5.2 Performance by Secured Party. If Debtor shall fail to perform
any covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement, Secured Party may perform
or attempt to perform such covenant or agreement on behalf of Debtor. In such
event, Debtor shall, at the request of Secured Party, promptly pay any amount
expended by Secured Party in connection


                                      -11-
<PAGE>

with such performance or attempted performance to Secured Party, together with
interest thereon at the Default Rate from and including the date of such
expenditure to but excluding the date such expenditure is paid in full.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is expressly agreed that Secured Party shall
not have any liability or responsibility for the performance of any
indebtedness, liability or obligation of Debtor under this Agreement.

                                    ARTICLE 6

                                     Default
                                     -------

     Section 6.1 Rights and Remedies. If an Event of Default shall have occurred
and be continuing, Secured Party shall have the following rights and remedies
with respect to the Collateral (subject to Section 6.3):

          (a) In addition to all other rights and remedies granted to Secured
Party in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document or by applicable law,
Secured Party shall have all of the rights and remedies of a secured party under
the UCC (whether or not the UCC applies to the affected Collateral) and Secured
Party may also, without notice except as specified below, sell the Collateral or
any part thereof in one or more parcels at public or private sale, at any
exchange, broker's board or at any of Secured Party's offices or elsewhere, for
cash, on credit or for future delivery, and upon such other terms as Secured
Party may deem commercially reasonable or otherwise as may be permitted by law.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Secured Party may sell, lease
or otherwise dispose of the Collateral, or any part thereof, in one or more
parcels at public or private sale or sales, at Secured Party's offices or
elsewhere, for cash, on credit or for future delivery, and upon such other terms
as Secured Party may deem commercially reasonable or otherwise as may be
permitted by law. Secured Party shall have the right at any public sale or
sales, and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, at any private sale or
sales, to bid (which bid may be, in whole or in part, in the form of
cancellation of indebtedness) and become a purchaser of the Collateral or any
part thereof free of any right or equity of redemption on the part of Debtor,
which right or equity of redemption is hereby expressly waived and released by
Debtor. Upon the request of Secured Party, Debtor shall assemble the Collateral
and make it available to Secured Party at any place designated by Secured Party
that is reasonably convenient to Debtor and Secured Party. Debtor agrees that
Secured Party shall not be obligated to give more than five days prior written
notice of the time and place of any public sale or of the time after which any
private sale may take place and that such notice shall constitute reasonable
notice of such matters. Secured Party shall not be obligated to make any sale of
Collateral if it shall determine not to do so, regardless of the fact that
notice of sale of Collateral may have been given. Secured Party may, without
notice or publication, adjourn any public or private sale or cause the same to
be adjourned from time to time by announcement at the time and place fixed for
sale, and such sale may, without further notice, be made at the time and place
to which the same was so adjourned. Debtor shall be liable for all expenses of
retaking, holding, preparing for sale or the like, and all attorneys' fees,
legal expenses and other costs and expenses incurred by Secured Party in
connection with the collection of the Obligations and the enforcement of Secured
Party's rights under this Agreement. Debtor shall remain liable for any
deficiency if the Proceeds of any sale or other disposition of the Collateral
applied to the Obligations are insufficient to pay the Obligations in full.
Secured Party may apply the Collateral against the Obligations in such order and
manner as


                                      -12-
<PAGE>

Secured Party may elect in its sole discretion. Debtor waives all rights of
marshaling, valuation and appraisal in respect of the Collateral. Any cash held
by Secured Party as Collateral and all cash proceeds received by Secured Party
in respect of any sale of, collection from or other realization upon all or any
part of the Collateral may, in the discretion of Secured Party, be held by
Secured Party as collateral for, and then or at any time thereafter applied in
whole or in part by Secured Party against, the Obligations in such order as
Secured Party shall select. Any surplus of such cash or cash proceeds and
interest accrued thereon, if any, held by Secured Party and remaining after
payment in full of all the Obligations shall be paid over to Debtor or to
whomsoever may be lawfully entitled to receive such surplus; provided that
Secured Party shall have no obligation to invest or otherwise pay interest on
any amounts held by it in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement.

          (b) Secured Party may cause any or all of the Collateral held by it to
be transferred into the name of Secured Party or the name or names of Secured
Party's nominee or nominees.

          (c) Secured Party may exercise any and all rights and remedies of
Debtor under or in respect of the Collateral, including, without limitation, any
and all rights of Debtor to demand or otherwise require payment of any amount
under, or performance of any provision of, any of the Collateral and any and all
voting rights and corporate powers in respect of the Collateral.

          (d) Secured Party may collect or receive all money or property at any
time payable or receivable on account of or in exchange for any of the
Collateral, but shall be under no obligation to do so.

          (e) On any sale of the Collateral, Secured Party is hereby authorized
to comply with any limitation or restriction with which compliance is necessary,
in the view of Secured Party's counsel, in order to avoid any violation of
applicable law or in order to obtain any required approval of the purchaser or
purchasers by any applicable Governmental Authority.

     Section 6.2 Registration Rights, Private Sales, Etc.

          (a) If Secured Party shall determine to exercise its right to sell all
or any of the Collateral pursuant to Section 6.1, Debtor agrees that, upon the
request of Secured Party (which request may be made by Secured Party in its sole
discretion), Debtor will, at its own expense:

               (i) execute and deliver, and cause the Pledged Entities and the
          directors and officers thereof to execute and deliver, all such
          agreements, documents and instruments, and do or cause to be done all
          such other acts and things, as may be reasonably necessary or, in the
          reasonable opinion of Secured Party, advisable to register such
          Collateral under the provisions of the Securities Act (as hereinafter
          defined) and use its best efforts to cause the registration statement
          relating thereto to become effective and to remain effective for such
          period as prospectuses are required by law to be furnished and to make
          all amendments and supplements thereto and to the related prospectus
          which, in the


                                      -13-
<PAGE>


          opinion of Secured Party, are necessary or advisable, all in
          conformity with the requirements of the Securities Act and the rules
          and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission applicable
          thereto;

               (ii) if reasonably necessary or, in the reasonable opinion of
          Secured Party, advisable, use its best efforts to qualify such
          Collateral under all applicable state securities or "Blue Sky" laws
          and to obtain all necessary governmental approvals for the sale of
          such Collateral, as requested by Secured Party;

               (iii) if reasonably necessary or, in the reasonable opinion of
          Secured Party, advisable, cause each Pledged Entity to make available
          to its security holders, as soon as practicable, an earnings statement
          which will satisfy the provisions of Section 11 (a) of the Securities
          Act;

               (iv) do or cause to be done all such other acts and things as may
          be reasonably necessary or appropriate to make such sale of the
          Collateral or any part thereof valid and binding and in compliance
          with applicable law; and

               (v) bear all reasonable costs and expenses, including reasonable
          attorneys' fees, of carrying out its obligations under this Section
          6.2.

          (b) Debtor recognizes that Secured Party may be unable to effect a
public sale of any or all of the Collateral by reason of certain prohibitions
contained in the Securities Act of 1933, as amended from time to time (the
"Securities Act") and applicable state securities laws but may be compelled to
resort to one or more private sales thereof to a restricted group of purchasers
who will be obliged to agree, among other things, to acquire such Collateral for
their own account for investment and not with a view to the distribution or
resale thereof. Debtor acknowledges and agrees that, any such private sale may
result in prices and other terms less favorable to the seller than if such sale
were a public sale and, notwithstanding such circumstances, agrees that any such
private sale shall, to the extent permitted by law, be deemed to have been made
in a commercially reasonable manner. Neither Secured Party nor the Lessors shall
be under any obligation to delay a sale of any of the Collateral for the period
of time necessary to permit any Pledged Entity to register such securities under
the Securities Act or under any applicable state securities laws, even if such
Pledged Entity would agree to do so.

          (c) Debtor further agrees to do or cause to be done, to the extent
that Debtor may do so under applicable law, all such other acts and things as
may be necessary to make such sales or resales of any portion or all of the
Collateral valid and binding and in compliance with any and all applicable laws,
regulations, orders, writs, injunctions, decrees or awards of any and all
courts, arbitrators or governmental instrumentalities, domestic or foreign,
having jurisdiction over any such sale or sales, all at Debtor's expense. Debtor
further agrees that a breach of any of the covenants contained in this Section
6.2 will cause irreparable injury to Secured Party and the Lessors and that
Secured Party and the Lessors have no adequate remedy at law in respect of such
breach and, as a consequence, agrees that each and every covenant contained in
this Section 6.2 shall be specifically enforceable against Debtor, and Debtor
hereby waives and agrees, to the fullest extent permitted by law, not to assert
as a defense against an action for specific performance of such covenants that
(i) Debtor's failure to perform such covenants will not cause



                                      -14-
<PAGE>

irreparable injury to Secured Party and the Lessors or (ii) Secured Party and
the Lessors have an adequate remedy at law in respect of such breach. Debtor
further acknowledges the impossibility of ascertaining the amount of damages
which would be suffered by Secured Party and the Lessors by reason of a breach
of any of the covenants contained in this Section 6.2 and, consequently, agrees
that, if Debtor shall breach any of such covenants and Secured Party or any
Lessor shall sue for damages for such breach, Debtor shall pay to Secured Party
or such Lessor, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, an aggregate amount
equal to the value of the Collateral on the date Secured Party or such Lessor
shall demand compliance with this Section 6.2.

          (d) DEBTOR HEREBY AGREES TO INDEMNIFY, PROTECT AND SAVE HARMLESS
SECURED PARTY AND THE LESSORS AND ANY CONTROLLING PERSONS THEREOF WITHIN THE
MEANING OF THE SECURITIES ACT FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL LIABILITIES, SUITS,
CLAIMS, COSTS AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING COUNSEL FEES AND DISBURSEMENTS) ARISING
UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT, THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE ACT OF 1934, AS AMENDED,
ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES STATUTE, OR AT COMMON LAW, OR PURSUANT TO ANY
OTHER APPLICABLE LAW IN CONNECTION WITH THE SALE OF ANY SECURITIES OR THE
EXERCISE OF ANY OTHER RIGHT OR REMEDY OF SECURED PARTY, INSOFAR AS SUCH
LIABILITIES, SUITS, CLAIMS, COSTS AND EXPENSES ARISE OUT OF, OR ARE BASED UPON,
ANY UNTRUE STATEMENT OR ALLEGED UNTRUE STATEMENT OF A MATERIAL FACT MADE BY ANY
CREDIT PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH THE SALE OR PROPOSED SALE OF ANY PART OF THE
COLLATERAL, OR ARISES OUT OF, OR IS BASED UPON, THE OMISSION OR ALLEGED OMISSION
BY ANY CREDIT PARTY TO STATE A MATERIAL FACT REQUIRED TO BE STATED IN CONNECTION
THEREWITH OR NECESSARY TO MAKE THE STATEMENTS MADE NOT MISLEADING; PROVIDED,
HOWEVER, THAT DEBTOR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY SUCH CASE TO THE EXTENT THAT ANY
SUCH LIABILITIES, SUITS, CLAIMS, COSTS AND EXPENSES ARISE OUT OF, OR ARE BASED
UPON, ANY UNTRUE STATEMENT OR ALLEGED UNTRUE STATEMENT OR OMISSION OR ALLEGED
OMISSION MADE IN RELIANCE UPON AND IN CONFORMITY WITH WRITTEN INFORMATION
FURNISHED TO DEBTOR BY SECURED PARTY OR ANY LESSOR SPECIFICALLY FOR INCLUSION IN
CONNECTION THEREWITH. THE FOREGOING INDEMNITY AGREEMENT IS IN ADDITION TO ANY
INDEBTEDNESS, LIABILITY OR OBLIGATION THAT DEBTOR MAY OTHERWISE HAVE TO SECURED
PARTY, ANY LESSOR OR ANY CONTROLLING PERSON THEREOF.

     Section 6.3 Compliance with Laws. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary
contained in any Credit Document or in any other agreement, instrument or
document executed by Debtor and delivered to Secured Party, Secured Party will
not take any action pursuant to this Agreement or any document referred to
herein which would constitute or result in any change of control (whether de
jure or de facto) of any Pledged Entity if such change of control would require,
under then existing law, the prior approval of the FCC or any other Governmental
Authority without first obtaining such prior approval of the FCC or other
Governmental Authority. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default or at any
time thereafter during the



                                      -15-
<PAGE>

continuance thereof, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement,
Debtor agrees to take any action which Secured Party may request in order to
obtain from the FCC or such other Governmental Authority such approval as may be
necessary to enable Secured Party to exercise and enjoy the full rights and
benefits granted to Secured Party by this Agreement and the other documents
referred to above, including specifically, at the cost and expense of Debtor,
the use of Debtor's best efforts to assist in obtaining approval of the FCC or
such other Governmental Authority for any action or transaction contemplated by
this Agreement for which such approval is or shall be required by law, and
specifically, without limitation, upon request, to prepare, sign and file with
the FCC or such other Governmental Authority the assignor's or transferor's
portion of any application or applications for consent to the assignment of
license or transfer of control necessary or appropriate under the FCC's or such
other Governmental Authority's rules and regulations for approval of (a) any
sale or other disposition of the Collateral by or on behalf of Secured Party, or
(b) any assumption by Secured Party of voting rights in the Collateral effected
in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
