Date in  proportion  to their  ownership  of the  Company  Stock as set forth on
Schedule  1.2(a)  hereto  and shall be placed in escrow  pending  release to the

and Hewlett  Packard ("HP"),  is not a client of THINK on the Anniversary  Date,
THINK shall have the right to force the  Stockholders to sell back to THINK, for
nominal consideration, all of the Escrowed Shares subject to the following:

                   (i) if Westin is a client  of THINK on the  Anniversary  Date
and the actual  revenue  derived by THINK from  Westin  (the  "Westin  Revenue")
during the twelve (12) months prior to the  Anniversary  Date (the  "Measurement
Period")  is at least 80% of the  actual  revenue  derived by the  Company  from
Westin  during the  twelve  (12)  months  prior to the  Closing  Date (the "Base
Period"),  one half of the Escrowed Stock (the "Westin Stock") shall be retained
by the Stockholders; if the Westin Revenue during the Measurement Period is less
than 60% of the Westin Revenue during the Base Period,  all shares of the Westin
Stock shall be sold back to THINK.  If the Westin Revenue during the Measurement
Period is at least 60% but less than 80% of the Westin  Revenue  during the Base
Period,  then the Stockholders shall be entitled to keep the number of shares of
Westin  Stock that is produced by dividing  the  Measurement  Period by the Base

the  actual  revenue  derived  by THINK  from HP (the "HP  Revenue")  during the
Measurement  Period is at least 80% of the actual revenue derived by the Company
from HP during the Base Period,  one half of the Escrowed Stock (the "HP Stock")
shall be retained by the Stockholders;  if the HP Revenue during the Measurement
Period is less than 60% of the HP Revenue during the Base Period,  all shares of
the HP  Stock  shall  be sold  back  to  THINK.  If the HP  Revenue  during  the
Measurement  Period is at least 60% but less than 80% of the HP  Revenue  during
the Base Period,  then the Stockholders  shall be entitled to keep the number of
shares of HP Stock that is produced by dividing  the  Measurement  Period by the
Base Period, subtracting .6 therefrom, multiplying the resulting number by 5 and
by multiplying the HP Stock by the product of the foregoing.

                   On the Anniversary  Date, THINK shall notify the Escrow Agent
in writing of: (i)  fulfillment of the  conditions  herein set forth relating to
release of the Escrowed  Stock,  whereupon the Escrowed Stock shall be delivered

whereupon the Escrowed Stock shall be delivered back to THINK.

experiences a Change in Control (as hereinafter defined), the Stockholders shall
be entitled to retain all of the Westin  Stock and HP Stock and such stock shall

reasonable  industry  standards,  to that which the Company has provided to such
clients prior to Closing;  PROVIDED THAT, the foregoing  individuals continue to
service  the  needs of  Westin  and HP in a  manner  comparable,  by  reasonable
industry standards, to the manner in which they have serviced such clients prior
to Closing  and,  FURTHER  PROVIDED  that such  individuals  have  entered  into
employment  agreements  between THINK and such  individuals as  contemplated  by
Section 7.14 hereof.


             (c)  CALCULATION OF PURCHASE  PRICE.  The number of shares of THINK
Stock  issuable  hereunder  shall be  determined  by dividing  the amount of the
Purchase  Price by the  average of the  closing  transaction  price per share of

Stockholders'  knowledge,  is there any proceeding  pending or threatened  which
could adversely  affect the zoning  classification  relating to such property or
its use by the  Company  as of the date  hereof.  The  assets  reflected  on the
balance sheets of the Financial  Statements  and those  purchased by the Company
after  the date of the most  recent  thereof,  are  owned  free and clear of all
adverse claims, liens, mortgages, charges, security interests,  encumbrances and

interests  granted by the Company in favor of Seafirst  Bank;  (B) for liens for
taxes or assessments not yet due and payable or which are being contested by the

detract in any  material  respect  from the value of any of the  assets  subject
thereto or which do not impair the  operations  of the  Company in any  material
respect or affect the present  use of the assets in any  material  respect.  The
Company has not made any  commitments  or received any notice,  oral or written,
from any public  authority  or other entity with respect to the taking or use of
any of the Company's assets, whether temporarily or permanently, for any purpose
whatsoever,  nor is there any  proceeding  pending or, to the  Company's  or the

documents and agreements pursuant to which the Company has obtained the right to
use or occupy any real  property,  personal  property  or assets,  are valid and
enforceable in all material  respects in accordance with their respective terms,
except as such enforcement may be limited by applicable bankruptcy,  insolvency,
reorganization,  moratorium or other similar laws now or hereafter in effect, or
by legal or  equitable  principles,  relating to or limiting  creditors'  rights
generally and except that the remedy of specific  performance and injunctive and
other forms of equitable relief are subject to certain equitable defenses and to
the discretion of the court before which any proceeding therefor may be brought.
All material  licenses,  permits and  authorizations  related to the location or
operation of the business of the Company are in good  standing and are valid and
enforceable in all material  respects in accordance with their respective terms.
There is not, under any of the foregoing  instruments,  documents or agreements,

or both,  would  constitute a default  arising  through the Company or any third
party  which  could:  (i) have a Material  Adverse  Effect;  or (ii)  materially
adversely affect its use of the Leased Real Property or the title to its assets.
To the Company's or the Stockholders' knowledge, the Company is not in violation
of and has  complied  with all  applicable  zoning,  building  or  other  codes,
statutes,  regulations,  ordinances,  notices  and  orders  of any  governmental
authority with respect to the occupancy, use, maintenance,  condition, operation
and improvement of the Leased Real Property or assets,  except where the failure
to comply would not have a Material  Adverse  Effect or where  compliance is the
obligation of a landlord  under a Real Property  Lease.  To the knowledge of the
Company and the  Stockholders,  the  Company's use of any  improvements  for the
purposes  for which any of the Leased Real  Property or assets are being used as
of the  date  hereof  does  not  violate  any such  code,  statute,  regulation,
ordinance, notice or order. The Company possesses all licenses,  certificates of
occupancy,  permits and authorizations  material to the Company's  operation and
maintenance  of the Leased  Real  Property or assets for all uses for which such
property is or assets are operated or used by the Company as of the date hereof,
except where the failure to do so would not have a Material Adverse Effect.  All

each such item is usable in a manner consistent with current use by the Company.

patent,  copyright or otherwise) which are owned by, licensed by, used in or are
material to the business of the Company (the  "Intellectual  Property")  is free
and clear of adverse claims, liens, mortgages,  charges,  security interests and
encumbrances or other restrictions or limitations of any kind whatsoever;

                  (ii)  the  Company  has  not  committed  any  acts  of  unfair
competition or directly, indirectly,  contributorily or by inducement, infringed
upon any  patent,  trademark,  service  mark,  trade name,  copyright,  computer
program or software,  or any other  intellectual  property,  nor has the Company


                                       11
<PAGE>

misappropriated any of the foregoing from any other person or entity or received
from any other  person or entity any notice,  charge,  claim or other  assertion
with respect thereto; and

                  (iii) the Company has not sent or  otherwise  communicated  to
any other person or entity any notice,  charge, claim or other assertion of, nor
has  the  Company  any  knowledge  of,  any  present,  impending  or  threatened
infringement  upon any of the  Intellectual  Property  by any  other  person  or
entity,  or  misappropriation  of any of the  foregoing  by any other  person or
entity,  or any commission of acts of unfair  competition by any other person or
entity.

            (j) ABSENCE OF UNDISCLOSED  LIABILITIES.  Other than as set forth in

otherwise  and  whether due or become  due,  which is material to the  Company's
business  or  assets,  or  the  operations,  prospects,  earnings  or  condition
(financial or otherwise) of the Company.

            (k) ABSENCE OF CERTAIN CHANGES OR EVENTS. The Company has not, since
December  31,  1997,  suffered  an event  that has had or will  have a  Material
Adverse Effect.

            (l)  AGREEMENTS.  Set  forth on  Schedule  3.1(l)  hereto is a true,
correct and complete list of all  contracts,  agreements  and other  instruments
material  to the  business  or  operation  of  the  Company,  including  without

other entity in any geographic  region within or outside of the United States of
America.

            Neither  the  Company,  the  Stockholders  nor any third party is in
default and no event has occurred  which,  with notice or lapse of time or both,
could cause or become a default by the Company,  the  Stockholders  or any third
party, under any Material Agreement, except as would not have a Material Adverse
Effect.  To the  knowledge of the Company and the  Stockholders,  each  Material
Agreement is enforceable in accordance  with its terms against all other parties
thereto,  except as such  enforcement  may be limited by applicable  bankruptcy,
insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws now or hereafter in
effect, or by legal or equitable principles,  relating to or limiting creditors'
rights  generally  and  except  that the  remedy  of  specific  performance  and
injunctive and other forms of equitable relief are subject to certain  equitable
defenses and to the discretion of the court before which any proceeding therefor
may be brought.

any other  restriction  of any kind  whatsoever  to which the  Company or either
Stockholder  is  subject  or by which any of their  properties  or assets may be
bound,  the effect of any of which  violation or conflict  could have a Material
Adverse Effect;  or (iv) constitute an event  permitting  termination by a third
party of any Material  Agreement which termination could have a Material Adverse
Effect.  No  consent,  authorization,   order  or  approval  of,  or  filing  or
registration with, any governmental  commission,  board or other regulatory body

terms  of this  Agreement  and  consummation  of the  transactions  contemplated

date hereof. To the Company's or the Stockholders' knowledge, there has not been
any  organizing  effort by any union or other  group  seeking to  represent  any
employees of the Company as its  exclusive  bargaining  agent at any time during
the two  years  prior to the date  hereof.  There  are no  labor  strikes,  work
stoppages or other labor disputes now pending or threatened against the Company,
nor has there been any such labor  strike,  work stoppage or other labor dispute

his/her employment with the Company.

effect.  Neither the Company nor any  Stockholder  has  knowledge of nor has the
Company or any  Stockholder  received any notice of  cancellation,  termination,
nonrenewal or  disallowance  of any claim  thereunder  or with respect  thereto.
Neither the Company nor any  Stockholder  has knowledge of any claim against the
Company relating to its business,  assets,  properties or operations which would
materially  increase the  insurance  premiums  payable by the Company under such
policy  or  binder  in excess  of  normal  increases  consistent  with  industry
practices.

regulatory authority) all returns, reports, elections, estimates,  declarations,
schedules,  forms and other documents ("Tax Returns") relating to taxes required
to be filed by the Code or by any applicable federal, state, county,  municipal,
local,  foreign or other  laws,  including,  without  limitation,  consolidated,
combined or unitary  returns,  for any taxable  period ending prior to or on the
Closing Date (the "Pre-Closing Tax Period"). The taxable year of the Company for
federal and state income and business tax purposes currently ends on March 31 of
each year.  All taxes shown on any Tax Return due and required to be filed prior

period  ending March 31, 1997  includes  adequate  provision for all taxes which
have been  assessed  or which  will be due and  payable by the  Company  for all
Pre-Closing  Tax  Periods.  The  Company  does not file any  state or local  tax
returns on a unitary or combined  basis with any other  member of an  Affiliated

business and its operations,  including without  limitation,  agencies concerned

To the Company's or the Stockholders'  knowledge,  there are no facts, events or
conditions that could interfere with, prevent continued  compliance with or give

contemplated  hereby.  This  Agreement  has been duly and validly  executed  and
delivered  by the officers of THINK on behalf of THINK and,  assuming  that this
Agreement  is the valid and  binding  obligation  of each of the Company and the
Stockholders,  is the valid and binding obligation of THINK, enforceable against
it in accordance  with its terms,  except as such  enforcement may be limited by
applicable bankruptcy, insolvency,  reorganization,  moratorium or other similar
laws now or hereafter in effect, or by legal or equitable  principles,  relating
to or  limiting  creditors'  rights  generally  and  except  that the  remedy of
specific  performance  and  injunctive  and other forms of equitable  relief are
subject to certain equitable  defenses and to the discretion of the court before
which any proceeding therefor may be brought.

            (b)  ORGANIZATION.  THINK is a corporation  duly organized,  validly
existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware. THINK has
the corporate  requisite power and authority to own and lease its properties and
assets, and to carry on its business as it is now being conducted. THINK is duly
qualified to do business as a foreign  corporation in each jurisdiction where it
owns or leases real property or conducts  business,  except where the failure to
be so  qualified  would not have a  material  adverse  effect  on the  business,
operations, earnings, prospects, assets or condition (financial or otherwise) of
THINK.

            (c) CAPITALIZATION. The number of authorized, issued and outstanding
shares of capital  stock of THINK as of the date hereof is as set forth above in
the recitals to this Agreement.  The outstanding shares of THINK Stock have been
duly authorized and validly issued and are fully paid and  nonassessable.  As of
the date hereof,  the number of shares of capital  stock that THINK is currently
authorized  to issue is  adequate  to permit  THINK to fulfill  its  obligations
hereunder  with  respect  to  issuance  of the  shares  of  THINK  Stock  to the
Stockholders  pursuant  hereto.  On the Closing Date,  the shares of THINK Stock

Stockholders and certain key employees  pursuant to Section 5.1(k) below, and as
set forth on Schedule 3.1(c) above, will be authorized and validly issued. THINK
has not issued any shares of capital  stock  which could give rise to claims for
violation  of any  federal  or state  securities  laws  (including  any rules or
regulations  promulgated  thereunder)  or  the  securities  laws  of  any  other
jurisdiction (including any rules or regulations promulgated thereunder).  As of
the date hereof,  except as set forth  herein,  there are no options,  warrants,
calls,  convertible securities or commitments of any kind whatsoever relating to
the shares of THINK Stock subject hereto.

            (d) NON-CONTRAVENTION;  CONSENTS. Neither the execution and delivery
of this Agreement,  nor  consummation of the transactions  contemplated  hereby,
does or will:  (i) violate or conflict with any provision of the  certificate of
incorporation  or bylaws of THINK;  (ii)  violate or conflict  with any material
provision of any mortgage, lien, lease, agreement,  permit, indenture,  license,
instrument,  law, order, arbitration award, judgment or decree to which THINK is
a party or by which it or the  property  or  assets  which are  material  to its
business or operation are bound, the effect of any of which violation would have
a  material  adverse  effect  on the  business,  assets,  operations,  earnings,
prospects  (financial or  otherwise)  of the Company;  (iii) violate or conflict
with any other  restriction  to which  THINK is  subject  or by which any of the
property or assets  which are material to the business or operation of THINK may


                                       18
<PAGE>

be bound, the effect of any of which violation or conflict would have a material
adverse  effect  on  the  business,  assets,  operations,   earnings,  prospects
(financial or otherwise) of the Company;  or (iv) constitute an event permitting
termination  of any  agreement  to which  THINK is  subject  by any other  party
thereto,  if in any such  circumstance  such termination could have a materially
adverse  effect on the  ability of THINK to fulfill its  respective  obligations
hereunder.  Other than as provided herein, no consent,  authorization,  order or
approval of, or filing or registration with, any governmental commission,  board
or other regulatory body is required in connection with the execution,  delivery
and  performance  of the terms of this  Agreement by THINK and  consummation  by
THINK of any of the transactions contemplated hereby.

             (e)   LITIGATION.   There  is  no  action,   suit,   proceeding  or
investigation pending against or related to THINK, nor, to the best knowledge of
THINK,  has THINK been  threatened  with any such action,  suit,  proceeding  or
investigation,  which  would  restrict  the  ability  of either to  perform  its
respective  obligations  hereunder or which would have a material adverse effect
on the business, assets, operations, earnings, prospects or condition (financial
or  otherwise)  of THINK.  THINK is not in default  in respect of any  judgment,
order, writ,  injunction or decree of any court or any federal,  state, local or
other  governmental  agency,   authority,   body,  board,  bureau,   commission,
department or instrumentality  which could have a material adverse effect on the
business,  assets,  operations,  earnings,  prospects or condition (financial or
otherwise) of THINK.

             (f) ACCURACY OF  INFORMATION  FURNISHED.  No statement by THINK set
forth herein or in the exhibits or the  schedules  hereto,  and no statement set
forth  in any  certificate  or  other  instrument  or  document  required  to be
delivered  by or on  behalf  of THINK  pursuant  hereto  or in  connection  with
consummation of the transactions  contemplated  hereby,  contained,  contains or
will contain any untrue statement of a material fact, or omitted,  omits or will
omit to state  any  material  fact  which is  necessary  to make the  statements
contained herein or therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were
made, not misleading.

             (g)  COMPLIANCE  WITH  APPLICABLE  LAW.  THINK  has  been and is in
compliance  with  all  foreign,   federal,   state  and  local  laws,  statutes,
ordinances,  rules and regulations  (including without limitation the Securities
Act and the Securities  Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) as of the date hereof,
the failure to comply with which could materially adversely affect the business,
assets, operations, earnings, prospects or condition (financial or otherwise) of
THINK or which  would  subject  any  officer  or  director  of THINK to civil or
criminal  penalties  or  imprisonment.  THINK  has  complied  with the rules and
regulations of all governmental  agencies having authority over its business and
its  operations,   including  without   limitation,   agencies   concerned  with
intra-state  and  interstate  commerce,   occupational   safety,   environmental
protection  and  employment  practices,  except where the failure to comply with
which  would not have a material  adverse  effect on the  business,  operations,
earnings,  prospects,  assets or condition  (financial  or  otherwise) of THINK.
THINK has no  knowledge  of and has not  received any notice of violation of any
such rule or  regulation  during the two years  prior to the date  hereof  which
could result in any  liability of THINK for  penalties or damages or which could
subject it to any injunction or government  writ,  order or decree.  To the best
knowledge  of THINK,  there  are no  facts,  events  or  conditions  that  could
interfere with, prevent continued  compliance with or give rise to any liability


                                       19
<PAGE>

under  any  foreign,  federal,  state  or  local  governmental  laws,  statutes,
ordinances  or  regulations  applicable  to the  business,  assets,  operations,
earnings, prospects or condition (financial or otherwise) of THINK, except where
the failure to do so would not have a material  adverse  effect on the business,
operations, earnings, prospects, assets or condition (financial or otherwise) of
THINK.

             (h) NO MATERIAL  ADVERSE CHANGE.  No material adverse change in the
business,  operations,  affairs,  prospects,  properties,  assets,  existing and
potential   liabilities,   obligations,   profits  or  condition  (financial  or
otherwise) of THINK has occurred since March 31, 1997.

             (i) EMPLOYEE  BENEFIT  PLANS.  Schedule  3.2(i) hereto sets forth a
true, correct and complete list of all Benefit Plans (the "THINK Benefit Plans")
covering the employees of the THINK (the "THINK Employees").  Each THINK Benefit
Plan is in compliance in all material respects with all applicable provisions of
law,  including  ERISA  and the  Code.  There  are no  pending  or,  to  THINK's
knowledge,  threatened  claims against any THINK Benefit Plan (except for claims
for benefits  payable in the normal  operation of the THINK Benefit  Plans) that
could give rise to any material  liability to the THINK.  All material  reports,
notices  and  returns  required  to be filed  with any  governmental  agency  or
provided to any person or entity with  respect to the THINK  Benefit  Plans have
been timely filed. THINK has never maintained,  contributed to or been obligated
to contribute  to any Benefit Plan that is an employee  pension plan (within the
meaning of Section 3(2) of ERISA) or any multiemployer  pension or multiemployer
welfare benefit plan (within the meaning of Section 3(37) of ERISA).

      3.3 SURVIVAL OF REPRESENTATIONS  AND WARRANTIES.  The  representations and
warranties  set forth in Sections  3.1 and 3.2 hereof  shall  survive  until the

      5.1 INDEMNIFICATION BY THE COMPANY AND THE STOCKHOLDERS.

             (a) Subject to Sections 5.1(b) and 5.1(c) hereof,  the Stockholders
hereby  agree,  severally to indemnify  and hold  harmless  THINK against and in
respect  of  all  damages,  claims,  losses  and  expenses  (including,  without
limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements) reasonably incurred by
THINK (all such amounts may hereinafter be referred to as the "Damages") arising
out of: (i) any  misrepresentation  or breach of any  representation or warranty
made by the  Company or the  Stockholders  pursuant  to the  provisions  of this
Agreement or in any statement,  certificate  or other document  furnished by the
Company  or  the  Stockholders   pursuant  to  this  Agreement;   and  (ii)  the
nonperformance or breach of any covenant, agreement or obligation of the Company
or the  Stockholders  contained in this  Agreement  which has not been waived by
THINK in writing. The Stockholders shall have no right to seek contribution from
the Company in the event that they are required to make any payments hereunder.

             (b) Until the close of business on the Anniversary Date and subject
to Section 3.3 hereof,  the  Stockholders  shall be obligated to indemnify THINK
pursuant  to this  Section  5.1 with  respect to claims for  Damages as to which
THINK shall have given written notice to the Company and the  Stockholders on or
before: (i) the close of business on the sixtieth (60th) day following discovery
by THINK of the facts upon which a claim for  indemnification  is being made; or
(ii) if the claim for  indemnification  relates  to  assertions  made by a third
party,  the close of business on the thirtieth  (30th) day following  receipt of
notice by a third party of a claim for  indemnification  by such party (a "Third
Party  Claim").  Any such  notice  shall  describe  the  nature of the claim for
Damages, the provisions of this Agreement upon which such claim is based and the
amount of the Damages,  if then ascertainable or if not then  ascertainable,  an
estimate  thereof.  The Stockholders  shall be obligated to indemnify THINK with


                                       22
<PAGE>

respect to claims for Damages arising out of any  misrepresentation or breach of
warranty made by the Company or the Stockholders  relating to Subsection  3.1(q)
as to which THINK shall have given  notice on or before the close of business on
the sixtieth  (60th) day following the later of: (i) the expiration  date of the
statute of limitations applicable to any indemnified federal,  state, foreign or
local tax liability;  or (ii) the final determination of any such tax liability,
including the final administrative and/or judicial determination thereof.

             (c)  Notwithstanding  the  indemnification   provided  pursuant  to
Subsection  5.1  (a) and  5.1(b)  above,  no  amount  shall  be  payable  by the
Stockholders in  indemnification  hereunder or under any other provision of this
Agreement  unless the  aggregate  amount of such Damages in respect of which the
Company or the Stockholders  would be liable,  but for operation and application
of the provisions of this Section  5.1(c),  exceeds on a cumulative  basis Fifty
Thousand Dollars ($50,000) and then only to the extent of such excess; PROVIDED,
HOWEVER,  that the Stockholders shall not be liable for claims made in excess of
the value of the THINK Stock included in the Purchase Price (the "Cap") and each
such  Stockholder  shall be liable for his pro rata portion  thereof  based upon
that portion of the total Purchase  Price he is entitled to receive  pursuant to
Sections 1.2 hereof. The value of the THINK Stock for purposes of application of
this section shall be determined  by  multiplying  the number of shares of THINK
Stock included in the Purchase  Price by the average of the closing  transaction
price per share of THINK  Stock for the twenty  (20)  trading  days  immediately
prior to the date of the notice of claim.

             (d)  Notwithstanding  the foregoing,  there shall be no Cap and the
Company  shall be  entitled to full  indemnification  by the  Stockholders  with
respect to claims  involving  employment  matters,  environmental  matters,  tax
matters and intellectual property matters.

             (e) In any case where the Stockholders  have indemnified  THINK for
any Damages and THINK  recovers from a third party all or any part of the amount
so  indemnified  by the  Stockholders,  THINK shall  promptly  reimburse  to the
Stockholders the amount so recovered.

      5.2  CLAIMS  AGAINST  THINK.  With  respect  to claims or demands by third
parties,  whenever THINK shall have received  notice that such a claim or demand
has  been  asserted  or  threatened  which,  if  valid,   would  be  subject  to
indemnification  under  Section  5.1 hereof,  THINK shall as soon as  reasonably
possible  and in any event  within  thirty (30) days of receipt of such  notice,
notify the Stockholders of such claim or demand and of all relevant facts within
its knowledge which relate thereto.  The Stockholders  shall then have the right
at their own  expense to  undertake  the  defense of any such  claims or demands
utilizing counsel selected by the Stockholders, as the case may be, and approved
by THINK, which approval shall not be unreasonably  withheld.  In the event that
the  Stockholders  should fail to give notice of the  intention to undertake the
defense of any such  claim or demand  within  sixty  (60) days  after  receiving
notice that it has been  asserted or  threatened,  THINK shall have the right to
defend,  satisfy and discharge the same by payment,  compromise or otherwise and
shall give written  notice of any such payment,  compromise or settlement to the
Stockholders.

indemnify  and hold  harmless  the Company and the  Stockholders  against and in
respect  of  all  damages,   claims,  losses  and  expenses  (including  without
limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements) reasonably incurred by
the  Stockholders  with respect  thereto (all such  amounts may  hereinafter  be
referred to as "Stockholder  Damages") arising out of: (i) any misrepresentation
or  breach of any  representation  or  warranty  made by THINK  pursuant  to the
provisions of this Agreement or in any statement,  certificate or other document
furnished by THINK pursuant to this Agreement;  and (ii) the  nonperformance  or
breach of any  covenant,  agreement  or  obligation  of THINK which has not been
waived by the Stockholders collectively in writing.

            (b) Until the close of business on the Anniversary  Date and subject
to Section 3.3 hereof,  THINK shall be obligated to indemnify  the  Stockholders
pursuant to this Section 5.3 only with respect to claims for Stockholder Damages
as to which the  Stockholders  shall  have given  written  notice to THINK on or
before: (i) the close of business on the sixtieth (60th) day following discovery
by the Stockholders of the facts upon which a claim for indemnification is being
made; or (ii) if the claim is a Third Party Claim,  the close of business on the
thirtieth (30th) day following receipt of notice by the third party of assertion
of a Third Party Claim.  Any such notice shall  describe the nature of the claim
for Damages, the provisions of this Agreement upon which such claim is based and
the amount of the Damages, if then ascertainable, or if not the ascertainable an
estimate thereof.

            (c)  Notwithstanding   the  indemnification   provided  pursuant  to
Subsection 5.3(a) above, no amount shall be payable by THINK in  indemnification
hereunder or under any other  provision of this  Agreement  unless the aggregate
amount of Stockholder Damages in respect of which THINK would be liable, but for
operation and  application  of the provisions of this  subsection,  exceeds on a
cumulative basis Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000) and then only to the extent of
such excess.

            (d) In any case where THINK has indemnified the Stockholders for any
Stockholder  Damages and the Stockholders  recover from a third party all or any
part of the amount so  indemnified  by THINK,  the  Stockholders  shall promptly
reimburse to THINK the amount so recovered.

      5.4 CLAIMS AGAINST THE STOCKHOLDERS.  With respect to claims or demands by
third parties,  whenever the Stockholders shall have received notice that such a
claim or demand has been  asserted  or  threatened,  which,  if valid,  would be
subject to  indemnification  under Section 5.3 hereof, the Stockholders shall as
soon as reasonably  possible and in any event within thirty (30) days of receipt
of such notice,  notify THINK of such claim or demand and of all relevant  facts
within its knowledge which relate thereto. THINK shall have the right at its own
expense to undertake the defense of any such claim or demand  utilizing  counsel
selected  by THINK and  approved  by the  Stockholders.  In the event that THINK
should fail to give notice of its intention to undertake the defense of any such
claim or demand within sixty (60) days after  receiving  notice that it has been
asserted or threatened, the Stockholders shall have the right to defend, satisfy
and  discharge  the same by  payment,  compromise  or  otherwise  and shall give
written notice of any such payment, compromise or settlement to THINK.

<PAGE>

      5.5 OFFSETS.  The amount of Damages otherwise eligible for indemnification
under this Section shall be reduced by: (i) the amount of any insurance proceeds
(minus all  reasonably  allocable  costs,  charges and  expenses  incurred by an
indemnified  party  ("Indemnified  Party") in obtaining such recovery)  actually
recovered  in respect  thereof;  and (ii) any  tax-related  benefits if and when
actually  realized  or  received  (but only after  taking  into  account the tax
benefits to which the Indemnified Party would be entitled without regard to such
item).  Any  insurance  recovery  or  tax-related  benefits  referred  to in the
previous  sentence  shall be  promptly  repaid by the  Indemnified  Party to the
Stockholders  pro rata in accordance with their respective  interests  following
the time at which such amounts are  actually  recovered or realized or received;
PROVIDED,  HOWEVER,  that in the  event  that any  such  insurance  recovery  or
tax-related  benefit is set aside or disallowed  and the  Indemnified  Party had
paid any amounts to the  Stockholders in respect thereof (or the amount by which
the Indemnified Party was indemnified was reduced in respect thereof),  then the
obligations of the  Stockholders to indemnify with respect to such amounts shall
be  reinstated  immediately  and  such  amounts  shall be paid  promptly  to the
Indemnified Party in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.
