computation of the Closing Adjustment and the Accounts Payable Adjustment,
specifying in detail any point of disagreement; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, if the
Stockholders' Representative fails to notify the Acquiror in writing of the
Stockholders' Representative's disagreement within such ten (10) day period, the
determination of the Closing Adjustment and the Accounts Payable Adjustment
shall be final, conclusive and binding on the Parties for purposes of
determining the amount of the Holdback Consideration to be paid Company
Stockholders pursuant to Section 1.04(a) with respect to the Closing Adjustment
and the Accounts Payable Adjustment, but shall not limit Acquiror's other rights
pursuant to this Purchase Agreement or any other document delivered in
connection with this Purchase Agreement. The Acquiror and the Stockholders'
Representative shall negotiate in good faith to resolve any such disagreement
relating to the Closing Adjustment and the Accounts Payable Adjustment. If any
such disagreement cannot be resolved by the Acquiror and the Stockholders'
Representative within fifteen (15) days after a party has received notice from
the other in accordance with the preceding two sentences of the existence of
such disagreement, the Acquiror and the Stockholders' Representative shall

accounting firm (which has not performed any service since January 1, 1996 for
either the Company or the Acquiror or any of their respective Affiliates (the

possible all points of disagreement with respect to the Closing Adjustment and
the Accounts Payable Adjustment (or, in the event they are unable to agree,
either may request the Boston, Massachusetts office of the American Arbitration
Association to make such selection, which shall be final and binding on the
Parties). All determinations made by the Accounting Firm with respect to the
Closing Adjustment and the Accounts Payable Adjustment shall be final,
conclusive and binding on the Parties hereto for purposes of determining the
amount of the Holdback Consideration to be paid to the Company Stockholders, but
shall not limit Acquiror's other rights pursuant to this Purchase Agreement or
any other document delivered in connection with this Purchase Agreement. The
fees and expenses of the Accounting Firm shall be borne by the non-prevailing
Party. The Holdback Consideration shall be distributed to the respective Parties
in accordance with the


                                        3
<PAGE>


terms hereof not later than ninety (90) days following the Closing, PROVIDED,
HOWEVER, that any specific amount then in dispute in good faith between the
Parties may remain undistributed until such dispute has been settled or a final
determination has been made, and PROVIDED FURTHER, that the Company Stockholders
shall have filed the September 2000 Company Tax Returns (as defined in Section
2.04 hereof) prior to release of the Holdback Consideration.

         (c) APPOINTMENT OF STOCKHOLDERS' REPRESENTATIVE. Each Company
Stockholder hereby appoints Fredrick Yeatts to be the appointed attorney-in-fact
and authorized and empowered to act, for and on behalf of any or all of the

be liable to any Company Stockholder, Acquiror, the Company or their respective
Affiliates or any other Person with respect to any action taken or omitted to be
taken by the Stockholders' Representative in his role as Stockholders'
Representative under or in connection with this Purchase Agreement unless such
action or omission results from or arises out of fraud, gross negligence,
willful misconduct or bad faith on the part of the Stockholders' Representative.
Acquiror shall be entitled to rely on such appointment and treat such
Stockholders' Representative as the duly appointed attorney-in-fact of each
Company Stockholder.

From the date hereof until the Closing Date, Company (a) will prepare and timely
file with the relevant Taxing authority all Company Tax Returns required to be
filed during such period ("Post-Signing Returns"), which Post-Signing Returns
shall be accurate in all material respects, or permitted extensions with respect
thereto, (b) will timely pay all Taxes due and payable with respect to such
Post-Signing Returns, (c) will pay or otherwise make adequate provision for all
Taxes payable by Company for which no Post-Signing Return is due prior to the
Closing Date, and (d) will promptly notify Acquiror of any action, suit,
proceeding, claim or audit pending against or with respect to Company in respect
of any Taxes.

The final S Corporation federal and state Tax Returns for the period ending as

September 15, 2000, including (a) a federal Tax Return, (b) a Massachussets Tax
Return and (c) any and all other state tax returns required to be filed by
Company (the "September 2000 Company Tax Returns"). Acquiror shall be entitled
to withhold from the Holdback Consideration an amount sufficient to pay the Tax
due under the September 2000 Company Tax Returns and use the same as security
for the Company Stockholder's payment of such tax due under the September 2000
Company Tax Returns, less any amount payable by Acquiror to the Company
Stockholders under the following paragraph.

The Company Stockholders and their certified public accountant shall prepare the
September 2000 Company Tax Returns prior to September 1, 2000, which shall be
reviewed and approved by Acquiror and its certified public accountants prior to
filing. The September 2000 Company Tax Returns shall be filed no later than
September 15, 2000. Upon filing of the September 2000 Company Tax Returns,
Acquiror shall pay to the Company Stockholders an amount equal to the lesser of
(i) $250,000, if the total federal and state taxes due (a) pursuant to Section
1374, and (b) on the gain from the sale of assets related to the Section
338(h)(10) election under the September 2000 Company Tax Returns, is equal to or
exceeds $500,000, or (ii) one half the total tax due under the September 2000
Company Tax Returns, if the total federal and state taxes due (a) pursuant to
Section 1374, and (b) on the gain from the sale of assets related to the Section
338(h)(10) election thereunder, is less than $500,000. Upon receipt of evidence
reasonably satisfactory to Acquiror that all Taxes due with respect to the
September 2000 Company Tax Returns have been paid in full, Acquiror shall
release to the Company Stockholders the portion of the Holdback Consideration
withheld pursuant to the immediately preceding paragraph.

In the event that any Taxing authority asserts a Tax deficiency against the
Company for any Taxes due with respect to the September 2000 Company Tax Returns
prior to the release to the Company Stockholders of the portion of the Holdback
Consideration withheld pursuant to the immediately preceding paragraph, the
Company may use such withheld portion to pay such asserted deficiency as the
Company and Acquiror may elect, and the Company and Acquiror shall have no
obligation to challenge such deficiency. The Company and the Acquiror shall not
take any action which would compromise the ability of the Company Stockholders
to challenge such claimed deficiency following payment thereof, and expressly
acknowledge the Company Stockholders' right to challenge any claimed deficiency
on behalf of the Company following payment thereof. Any amounts reimbursed by
any Taxing authorities with respect to such deficiency shall be paid to the
Company Stockholders.

SECTION 3.07  INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

proposed to be conducted, and such Intellectual Property is free and clear of
Encumbrances. The Company has previously furnished to Acquiror evidence of
either ownership by the Company of or license rights to use its Intellectual
Property.

         (c) There are no pending or, to Company's knowledge, threatened claims
against Company alleging that the conduct of its business infringes any
Intellectual Property rights of others that would have a Company Material
Adverse Effect. The Intellectual Property of Company is not subject to any
mortgage, lien, pledge, encumbrance, security interest, deed of trust, option,
order, decree or judgment. The business of Company as now conducted or proposed
to be conducted does not infringe any third-party Intellectual Property rights.

         (d) To the Company's knowledge, no third party is infringing upon any
of the Company's Intellectual Property, and the Company has not notified any
third party that it believes such third party is interfering with, infringing,
or misappropriating any of the Company's Intellectual Property or engaging in
any act of unfair competition. The Company has the right to bring an action for
the infringement of all of its Intellectual Property that is owned by the
Company.

         (e) Company has taken all steps that are required to protect Company's
rights in confidential information and trade secrets of Company or provided by
any other Person to Company. Without limiting the foregoing, Company has and
enforces a policy requiring each employee, director, consultant and contractor
to execute a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement substantially in the
form previously provided to Acquiror, and each present and former employee,
director, consultant and contractor has executed such an agreement.

         (f) The operation of the business of the Company as it currently is
conducted or as currently proposed to be conducted by the Company does not and
will not and will not when conducted by the Acquiror or the Company in
substantially the same manner following the Closing, infringe or misappropriate
any Intellectual Property right of any person, violate any right of any person
(including any right to privacy or publicity), or constitute unfair competition
or trade practices under the laws of any jurisdiction.

         (g) Neither this Purchase Agreement nor the transactions contemplated
by this Purchase Agreement, will result in (i) either Acquiror or the Company
granting to any third party any right to or with respect to any Intellectual
Property right owned by, or licensed to, either of them, (ii) either Acquiror's
or the Company's being bound by, or subject to, any non-compete or other
restriction on the operation or scope of their respective businesses, or (iii)
either Acquiror's or the Company's being obligated to pay any royalties or other

such Company Benefit Plan at any time without incurring any material liability

payment (including, without limitation, severance, golden parachute or
otherwise) becoming due to any person under any Company Benefit Plan or

Qualification), Section 3.04 (Capitalization), Section 3.05 (Authority; Binding
Obligation), Section 3.15 (Pension and Benefit Plans), Section 3.16 (Taxes and

indemnity which is the subject of a claim which is asserted in writing prior to
the expiration of the applicable period set forth above shall survive solely
with respect to such claim until the final resolution thereof.

SECTION 9.02  INDEMNIFICATION BY COMPANY STOCKHOLDERS; RIGHT TO OFFSET

         (a) Anything in this Purchase Agreement to the contrary
notwithstanding, the Company Stockholders hereby agree to jointly and severally
indemnify, defend and hold Acquiror, the Company and their respective officers
and directors, and each person, if any, who controls or may control Acquiror or
the Company within the meaning of the Securities Act (all such persons
hereinafter are referred to individually as an "Acquiror Indemnified Person" and
collectively as "Acquiror Indemnified Persons," but in no event shall any
stockholder of the Company prior to the Closing Date be such an Acquiror
Indemnified Person) harmless against all Losses resulting from, imposed upon or
incurred by any Acquiror Indemnified Person, directly or indirectly, as a result
of any of the following:

                  (i) any inaccuracy or breach of a representation or warranty
of the Company or the Company Stockholders given or made by the Company or the
Company Stockholders in this


                                       37
<PAGE>


Purchase Agreement, or in the Company Disclosure Letter or in any certificate,
document or agreement delivered by or on behalf of the Company or any Company
Stockholder pursuant hereto; and

                  (ii) any failure by the Company or the Company Stockholders to
perform or comply with any covenant or agreement contained in this Purchase
Agreement, or in the Company Disclosure Letter or in any certificate, document
or agreement delivered by or on behalf of the Company and the Company
Stockholders pursuant hereto.

         (b) In the event, from time to time, any Acquiror Indemnified Person
determines that it has suffered a Loss for which indemnification is available
pursuant to this Article IX, the following procedure shall be followed:

                  (i) Acquiror Indemnified Person shall give written notice of
any such claim (a "Loss Notice") to the Stockholder Representative specifying in
reasonable detail the amount of the claimed Loss (the "Loss Amount") and the
basis for such Loss and that the Acquiror intends to offset against the
Indemnification Holdback.

                  (ii) Within thirty (30) days after delivery of a Loss Notice,
the Stockholder Representative shall provide to Acquiror and the Acquiror
Indemnified Person (if not the same Person), a written response (a "Response
Notice") in which the Stockholder Representative will (i) agree that an offset
in the full Loss Amount may be made against the Indemnification Holdback, (ii)
agree that an offset in an amount equal to part, but not all, of the Loss Amount
(the "Agreed Amount") may be made against the Indemnification Holdback or (iii)
contest making any offset against the Indemnification Holdback. The Stockholder
Representative may contest an offset against the Indemnification Holdback upon a
good faith belief that all or such portion of such offset does not constitute a
Loss for which the Acquiror Indemnified Person is entitled to indemnification
under this Article IX. If no Response Notice is delivered by the Stockholder
Representative within such thirty (30) day period, the Company Stockholders
shall be deemed to have agreed that an offset in the full Loss Amount may be
made against the Indemnification Holdback.

                  (iii) If the Stockholder Representative in the Response Notice
agrees (or is deemed to have agreed) that an offset may be made against the
Indemnification Holdback in an amount equal to the Loss Amount, the Acquiror
may, promptly following the earlier of the required delivery date of the
Response Notice or the delivery of the Response Notice, cause an offset in the
amount of the Loss Amount to be made to the Indemnification Holdback.

                  (iv) If the Stockholder Representative in the Response Notice
agrees that an offset in an amount equal to part, but not all, of the Loss
Amount (the "Agreed Amount") may be made against the Indemnification Holdback,
the Acquiror may, promptly following the earlier of the required delivery date
of the Response Notice or the delivery of the Response Notice, cause an offset
in the amount of the Agreed Amount to be made to the Indemnification Holdback.

                  (v) If the Stockholder Representative in the Response Notice
contests an offset against the Indemnification Holdback equal to all or any part
of the Loss Amount (the


                                       38
<PAGE>


"Contested Amount"), the Acquiror Indemnified Person and the Stockholder
Representative shall negotiate in good faith to resolve any such dispute. If any
such dispute involving claims of less than $1,000,000 cannot be resolved within
forty-five (45) days after the receipt by the Acquiror of the Response Notice,
the Acquiror Indemnified Person and the Stockholder Representative shall submit
the matter to the Boston, MA office of the American Arbitration Association
("AAA") for binding arbitration to be conducted in accordance with the AAA
commercial arbitration rules in effect at the time such matter is submitted. If
any such matter is submitted to the AAA as provided herein, (A) each of the
Acquiror Indemnified Person and the Stockholder Representative will furnish to
AAA such workpapers and other documents and information as AAA may request and
will be afforded the opportunity to present to AAA any material relevant to the
matter, (B) the determination by AAA, as set forth in a notice delivered to the
Acquiror Indemnified Person and the Stockholder Representative by AAA, will be
binding and conclusive on such parties.

                  (vi) In connection with any such commercial arbitration, the
following rules shall also apply: (A) any Party shall have the right to have
counsel represent such Party at the arbitration hearing and in pre-arbitration
proceedings; (B) all Parties shall be permitted to conduct discovery in
accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure; (C) the arbitrator(s)
shall have the authority to resolve any discovery disputes and to invoke an
action to cease further discovery; (D) each Party to any arbitration proceeding
shall have the right to a written transcript made of the arbitration
proceedings; (E) each Party shall have the right to file post-arbitration
briefs, which shall be considered by the arbitrator(s); and (F) each Party shall
bear its own costs and expenses and attorney's fees in connection with such
arbitration.

                  (vii) In the event of any disputes involving claims of
$1,000,000 or more, any Party shall have the right to bring such action in any
state or federal court of competent jurisdiction.

         (c) The indemnity obligations of the Company Stockholders under this
Article IX shall first be satisfied through the exercise by the Acquiror of the
right of offset against the aggregate outstanding amount of the Indemnification
Holdback. The Indemnification Holdback shall in no way be deemed to be a
limitation on the recourse available to any Acquiror Indemnified Person for the
indemnification obligations of the Company Stockholders hereunder. Following its
exhaustion of its offset rights as set forth above, Acquiror shall have the
right to enforce the indemnity obligations of the Company Stockholders under
this Article IX through an action in a court of competent jurisdiction.

         (d) The exercise of such right of offset by Acquiror in good faith,
whether or not ultimately determined to be justified, will not constitute a
breach of this Purchase Agreement. Neither the exercise of nor the failure to
exercise such right of offset will constitute an election of remedies or limit
Acquiror in any manner in the enforcement of any other remedies available to
Acquiror.

         (e) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 9.02 to
the contrary, the following limitations with respect to the indemnification
obligations of the Company Stockholders under Article IX shall apply:


                                       39
<PAGE>


                  (i) The Company Stockholders shall not be liable for any
amounts under this Section 9.02 unless and until the aggregate of Losses
suffered by the Acquiror Indemnified Party(ies) from all claims for
indemnification exceed $100,000, in which case the Company Stockholder shall be
liable for the full amount of Losses suffered by the Acquiror Indemnified
Party(ies), including the first $100,000;

                  (ii) No claim for any Loss related to any matter which is
otherwise adjusted pursuant to the Closing Adjustment or the Accounts Payable
Adjustment in accordance with Section 1.04 hereof shall be made;

                  (iii) No claim for any Loss shall be made by the Acquiror
Indemnified Party unless such claim (or all similar claims arising out of the
same circumstances) exceeds in each instance $10,000; and

                  (iv) In no event shall the Company Stockholders be liable to
the Acquiror Indemnified Party(ies) for amounts under this Article IX
aggregating in excess of (i) between the date of this Purchase Agreement through
and including the first anniversary thereof, the Purchase Price, and (ii) with
respect to the claims submitted in writing to the Company Stockholders the day
following the first anniversary of this Purchase Agreement through the
eighteenth (18th) month after the date of this Purchase Agreement, the sum of
$15,000,000; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the limitations set forth in this clause
(iv) shall not apply with respect to any Loss which is the result of fraud or
intentional misrepresentation on the part of the Company or the Company
Stockholders, or to any Loss which is the result of a breach of any
representation or warranty set forth in Sections 3.04, 3.15, 3.16, 3.22, 4.01 or
4.06.

SECTION 9.03  INDEMNIFICATION BY ACQUIROR

         (a) Anything in this Purchase Agreement to the contrary
notwithstanding, the Acquiror hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold the
Company Stockholders harmless against all Losses resulting from, imposed upon or
incurred by any Company Stockholder, directly or indirectly, as a result of any
of the following:

                  (i) any inaccuracy or breach of any representation or warranty
of the Acquiror given or made by the Acquiror in this Purchase Agreement or in
any certificate document or agreement delivered by or on behalf of the Acquiror
pursuant hereto;

                  (ii) any failure by the Acquiror to perform or comply with any
covenant or agreement contained in this Purchase Agreement or in any
certificate, document or agreement delivered by or on behalf of the Acquiror
pursuant hereto; and

                  (iii) the conduct and operation of the business of the Company
from and after the Closing Date.

         (b) In the event, from time to time, Company Stockholder determines
that it has suffered a Loss for which indemnification is available pursuant to
this Article IX, the following procedure shall be followed:


                                       40
<PAGE>


                  (i) Stockholder Representative shall give written notice of
any such claim (a "Stockholder Loss Notice") to Acquiror specifying in
reasonable detail the amount of the claimed Loss (the "Stockholder Loss Amount")
and the basis for such Loss.

                  (ii) Within thirty (30) days after delivery of a Stockholder
Loss Notice, Acquiror shall provide to Stockholder Representative a written
response (a "Acquiror Response Notice") in which the Acquiror will (i) agree
that indemnification of the full Stockholder Loss Amount is appropriate, (ii)
agree that indemnification in an amount equal to part, but not all, of the
Stockholder Loss Amount (the "Stockholder Agreed Amount") may be made or (iii)
contest making any indemnification hereunder. Acquiror may contest the
Stockholder Loss Notice upon a good faith belief that all or such portion of the
claims thereunder does not constitute a Loss for which the Company Stockholder
is entitled to indemnification under this Article IX. If no Acquiror Response
Notice is delivered by Acquiror within such thirty (30) day period, Acquiror
shall be deemed to have agreed that indemnification in the full Stockholder Loss
Amount is warranted.

                  (iii) If Acquiror in the Acquiror Response Notice contests an
amount of the indemnification equal to all or any part of the Stockholder Loss
Amount (the "Acquiror Contested Amount"), the Acquiror and the Stockholder
Representative shall negotiate in good faith to resolve any such dispute. If any
such dispute involving claims of less than $1,000,000 cannot be resolved within
forty-five (45) days after the receipt by the Acquiror of the Acquiror Response
Notice, the Acquiror Indemnified Person and the Stockholder Representative shall
submit the matter to the Boston, MA office of the American Arbitration
Association ("AAA") for binding arbitration to be conducted in accordance with
the AAA commercial arbitration rules in effect at the time such matter is
submitted. If any such matter is submitted to the AAA as provided herein, (A)
each of the Acquiror and the Stockholder Representative will furnish to AAA such
workpapers and other documents and information as AAA may request and will be
afforded the opportunity to present to AAA any material relevant to the matter,
(B) the determination by AAA, as set forth in a notice delivered to the Acquiror
and the Stockholder Representative by AAA, will be binding and conclusive on
such parties.

                  (vi) In connection with any such commercial arbitration, the
following rules shall also apply: (A) any Party shall have the right to have
counsel represent such Party at the arbitration hearing and in pre-arbitration
proceedings; (B) all Parties shall be permitted to conduct discovery in
accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure; (C) the arbitrator(s)
shall have the authority to resolve any discovery disputes and to invoke an
action to cease further discovery; (D) each Party to any arbitration proceeding
shall have the right to a written transcript made of the arbitration
proceedings; (E) each Party shall have the right to file post-arbitration
briefs, which shall be considered by the arbitrator(s); and (F) each Party shall
bear its own costs and expenses and attorney's fees in connection with such
arbitration.

                  (vii) In the event of any disputes involving claims of
$1,000,000 or more, any Party shall have the right to bring such action in any
state or federal court of competent jurisdiction.


                                       41
<PAGE>


         (c) The exercise of the right to indemnification by Company
Stockholders in good faith, whether or not ultimately determined to be
justified, will not constitute a breach of this Purchase Agreement. Neither the
exercise of nor the failure to exercise such right of offset will constitute an
election of remedies or limit Company Stockholders in any manner in the
enforcement of any other remedies available to Company Stockholders.

         (d) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 9.03 to
the contrary, the following limitations with respect to the indemnification
obligations of Acquiror under clauses (i) and (ii) of Section 9.03(a) shall
apply:

                  (i) Acquiror shall not be liable for any amounts under this
Section 9.03 unless and until the aggregate of Losses suffered by the Company
Stockholders from all claims for indemnification exceed $100,000, in which case
the Acquiror shall be liable for the full amount of Losses suffered by the
Company Stockholders, including the first $100,000;

                  (ii) No claim for any Loss shall be made by the Company
Stockholders unless such claim (or all similar claims arising out of the same
circumstances) exceeds in each instance $10,000; and

                  (iii) In no event shall the Acquiror be liable to the Company
Stockholders for amounts under this Article IX aggregating in excess of (i)
between the date of this Purchase Agreement through and including the first
anniversary thereof, the Purchase Price, and (ii) with respect to the claims
submitted in writing to Acquiror the day following the first anniversary of this
Purchase Agreement through the eighteenth (18th) month after the date of this
Purchase Agreement, the sum of $15,000,000.

SECTION 9.04  THIRD PARTY CLAIMS.

The obligations and liabilities of the Company Stockholders and Acquiror with
respect to their respective indemnities pursuant to this Article IX, resulting
from any Third Party Claim shall be subject to the following terms and
conditions:

         (a) The party seeking indemnification (the "Indemnified Party") must
give the party obligated to indemnify (the "Indemnifying Party"), notice of any
Third Party Claim which is asserted against, resulting to, imposed upon or
incurred by the Indemnified Party and which may give rise to liability of the
Indemnifying Party pursuant to this Article IX, stating (to the extent known or
reasonably anticipated) the nature and basis of such Third Party Claim and the
amount thereof; PROVIDED that the failure to give such notice shall not affect
the rights of the Indemnified Party hereunder except to the extent (i) that the
Indemnifying Party shall have suffered actual damage by reason of such failure,
or (ii) such failure or delay materially adversely affects the ability of the
Indemnifying Party to defend, settle or compromise such Third Party Claim.

         (b) Subject to Section 9.04(c) below, if the Indemnifying Party assumes
responsibility for Losses arising out of such Third Party Claim, then the
Indemnifying Party shall have the right to undertake, by counsel or other
representatives of its own choosing, the defense of such Third Party Claim at
the Indemnifying Party's risk and expense.


                                       42
<PAGE>


         (c) In the event that (i) the Indemnifying Party shall elect not to
undertake such defense, (ii) within a reasonable time after notice from the
Indemnified Party of any such Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall
fail to undertake to defend such Third Party Claim, or (iii) there is a
reasonable probability that such Third Party Claim may materially and adversely
affect the Indemnified Party other than as a result of money damages or other
money payments, then the Indemnified Party (upon further written notice to the
Indemnifying Party) shall have the right to undertake the defense, compromise or
settlement of such Third Party Claim, by counsel or other representatives of its
own choosing, on behalf of and for the account and risk of the Indemnifying
Party. In the event that the Indemnified Party undertakes the defense of a Third
Party Claim under this Section 9.04, the Indemnifying Party shall pay to the
Indemnified Party, in addition to the other sums required to be paid hereunder,
the reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the Indemnified Party in
connection with such defense, compromise or settlement as and when such costs
and expenses are so incurred.

         (d) Anything in this Section 9.04 to the contrary notwithstanding,
neither the Indemnified Party nor the Indemnifying Party shall, without the
other party's written consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld
or delayed), settle or compromise such Third Party Claim or consent to entry of
any judgment which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving
by the claimant or the plaintiff to the Indemnified Party of a release from all
liability in respect of such Third Party Claim in form and substance
satisfactory to the Indemnified Party. In all cases where such release is
granted, if a firm written offer is made to settle any Third Party Claim, and
the Indemnifying Party proposes to accept such settlement and the Indemnified
Party refuses to consent to such settlement then (A) the Indemnifying Party
shall be excused from and the Indemnified Party shall be solely responsible for
all further defense of such Third Party Claim; (B) the maximum liability of the
Indemnifying Party relating to such Third Party Claim shall be the amount of the
proposed settlement if the amount thereafter recovered from the Indemnified
Party on such Third Party Claim is greater than the amount of the proposed
settlement; and (C) the Indemnified Party shall pay all attorney's fees and
legal costs and expenses incurred after rejection of such settlement by the
Indemnified Party, but if the amount thereafter recovered by such Third Party
from the Indemnified Party is less than the amount of the proposed settlement,
the Indemnified Party shall be reimbursed by the Indemnifying Party for such
attorney's fees and legal costs and expenses up to the maximum amount equal to
the difference between the amount recovered by such Third Party and the amount
of the proposed settlement.

SECTION 9.05  NO RECOURSE AGAINST THE COMPANY

The Company Stockholders each hereby irrevocably waive any and all right to
recourse against the Company with respect to any misrepresentation or breach of
any representation, warranty or indemnity, or noncompliance with any conditions
or covenants, given or made by the Company in this Purchase Agreement or any
other agreements and documents executed or to be executed by the Parties hereto
in order to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Purchase Agreement.
No Company Stockholder shall be entitled to contribution from, subrogation to or
recovery against the Company with respect to any liability of any Company
Stockholder that may arise under or pursuant to this Purchase Agreement or any
of the other agreements and


                                       43

documents executed or to be executed by the Parties hereto in order to
consummate the transactions contemplated by this Purchase Agreement or such
other agreements and documents contemplated hereby.
