                           (a) Option Grant. On October 25, 1999, the Executive
shall be granted an option for the purchase of 350,000 shares of the common

                  5. Benefits.

                           (a) Medical and Health Insurance Benefits. The
Company shall, at its sole expense, provide the Executive and his eligible
dependents with medical, health and dental insurance coverage at least
comparable to such coverage enjoyed by the Executive immediately prior to the
execution of this Agreement or, at the election of the Executive, the coverage
generally provided by the Company to its other executive employees.

conditions of ) the medical, health and dental insurance plans under which the
Executive was receiving coverage on the date of such termination of employment
for the period of three years (the "Three Year Period") from the date of such
termination of employment; provided that to the extent such coverage may be

dental insurance benefits from a third party which are substantially equivalent
to the medical, health and dental insurance benefits provided for by the Company
hereunder.

                  8. Excise Taxes.

                           (a) In the event that any payments made and/or
benefits provided to the Executive under this Agreement (including, without
limitation, pursuant to the Option and/or the Notice of Grant and Share Option
Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit A) (hereinafter called the "Payments") are
subject to any excise taxes, including, without limitation, excise taxes imposed
by Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code")
(the "Excise Taxes"), the Company shall pay the Executive such additional cash
payment(s) (hereinafter collectively called the "Gross Up Payment") such that
the net amount that the Executive would retain after deduction and/or payment of
any Excise Taxes on the Payments, and any interest and/or penalties assessed by
the Internal Revenue Service with respect to the Excise Taxes, and taking into
account the tax consequences of all additional cash payments made by the Company
pursuant to this Section 8, shall be equal to the aggregate value of Payments.
The determination of whether such Excise Taxes are payable and the amount
thereof shall be based upon the opinion of counsel selected by the Executive and
acceptable to the Company. Any such additional cash payment by the Company shall
be paid by the Company to the Executive in one lump sum cash payment within
thirty (30) days following the date such opinion of counsel is rendered. If such
opinion is not accepted by the Internal Revenue Service, then the Executive
shall determine and notify the Company of the appropriate adjustments in the
Gross Up Payment (taking into account any and all Excise Taxes, interest,
penalties and the tax consequences of all additional cash payments made by the
Company pursuant to this Section 8) and the Company shall pay the Executive the
difference between the final amount of the Gross Up Payment and the amount
previously paid, if any, to the Executive by the Company pursuant to this
Section 8 (hereinafter called the "Adjustment Payment"). Any such Adjustment
Payment shall be paid by the Company to the Executive in one lump sum cash
payment within ten (10) days following such notification.

                           (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (a)
of this Section 8, the Company shall not be obligated to make any Gross Up
Payment unless:

                           (1) the counsel selected pursuant to Section 8(a)
above, or the Internal Revenue Service, determines that there has been a change
in the ownership or effective control of the Company or a change in the
ownership of a substantial portion of the assets of the Company, all as defined
in Section 280G of the Code and the proposed regulations thereunder (each, a
"Change of Control"), and

                           (2) at the time of the Change of Control (as
determined by such counsel), either:

                  11. Severability. Should any provision of this Agreement be
held, by a court of competent jurisdiction, to be invalid or unenforceable, such
invalidity or unenforceability shall not render the entire Agreement invalid or

breach of Section 9 and/or 10 of this Agreement shall exist unless the Company
shall first have provided the Executive with written notice specifying in
reasonable detail the factors constituting such breach and such breach shall not
