terminated by the Company without Cause or by Executive for Good Reason within

the benefits provided below, provided that, Executive voluntarily elects and
agrees not to engage in Prohibited Activities for a period of one (1) year after

or (B) the number of months remaining until Executive's 65th birthday, the
Company shall at its expense continue on behalf of Executive and his dependents
and beneficiaries the life insurance, disability, medical, dental and
hospitalization benefits which were being provided to Executive at the time
Notice of Termination is given. In the event that the provisions of any such
employee benefit arrangements do not permit continuing coverage, then the
Company shall provide Executive with substantially equivalent coverage through
other sources. The benefits provided in this Section 7(e)(ii) shall be no less
favorable to Executive, in terms of amounts and deductibles and costs to him,
than the coverage provided Executive under the plans providing such benefits at
the time Notice of Termination is given. The Company's obligation hereunder with
respect to the foregoing benefits shall be limited to the extent that Executive
obtains any such benefits pursuant to a subsequent employer's benefit plans, in
which case the Company may reduce the coverage of any benefits it is required to
provide Executive hereunder as long as the aggregate coverage of the combined
benefit plans is no less favorable to Executive, in terms of amounts and
deductibles and costs to him, than the coverage required to be provided
hereunder. This Subsection (ii) shall not be interpreted so as to limit any
benefits to which Executive or his dependents may be entitled under any of the
Company's employee benefit plans, programs or practices following Executive's
termination of employment, including without limitation, retiree medical and
life insurance benefits;

      (ii) all restrictions on any outstanding awards granted by the Company or

immediately vested, and all stock options and stock appreciation rights granted
to Executive shall become fully (100%) and immediately exercisable;

      (iii) if prior to a termination to which this Section 7(e) relates, the
Company shall adopt a supplemental and excess retirement plan which covers
Executive, then the Company shall pay in twenty-four (24) substantially equal
monthly payments an amount in cash equal to the excess of (A) the actuarial
equivalent of the aggregate retirement benefit Executive would have been
entitled to receive under such supplemental and excess retirement plans (x) had
Executive remained employed by the Company for an additional two (2) complete
years of credited service (or until his 65th birthday, if earlier), (y) had
Executive's annual compensation during such period been equal to his Base Salary
(at the rate used for purposes of

                                      -10-

<PAGE>

Section 7(c)(ii)) plus the Bonus Amount, and (z) had Executive been fully (100%)
vested in his benefits under each such retirement plan with respect to his years
of service prior to termination and such additional two (2) year period, over
(B) the actuarial equivalent of the aggregate retirement benefit Executive is
actually entitled to receive under such retirement plans. For purposes of this
Subsection (iii), "actuarial equivalent" shall be determined in accordance with
the actuarial assumptions used for the calculation of benefits under any
retirement plan as applied prior to the termination date in accordance with such
plan's past practices (but shall in any event take into account the value of any
subsidized early retirement benefit); and

      (iv) In lieu of the amounts otherwise due to Executive in accordance with
Section 7(c)(ii), the Company shall pay Executive as additional compensation for
the periods subsequent to the termination date, an amount in cash equal to three
(3) times the sum of (A) Executive's annual Base Salary at the highest rate in
effect at any time within the ninety (90) day period ending on the date the
Notice of Termination is delivered, and (B) the Bonus Amount as defined in
Section 7(c)(ii). The additional compensation provided in the previous sentence
shall be payable in substantially equal monthly installments for a period of
twelve months.

If Executive does not so voluntarily elect and agree or otherwise engages in
such Prohibited Activities, then Executive's eligibility to continue to receive
the post-employment benefits provided for in this paragraph shall immediately
thereafter terminate.

Executive shall not be required to mitigate the amount of any payment provided
for under this Section 7 by seeking other employment and no such payment shall
be offset or reduced by the amount of any compensation or benefits provided to
Executive in any subsequent employment.

8. Change in Control. For purposes of this Agreement, a "Change in Control"
shall mean any of the following events, (i) unless, in the case of (a), (b) and
(c) below, ICN Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("ICN") holds a majority of the Company's
outstanding voting securities, and (ii) in the case of (d), (e), (f) and (g)
below, only if ICN holds a majority of the Company's outstanding voting
securities:

   (a) the acquisition (other than from the Company) by any person (as such term
is defined in Section 13(c) or 14(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as
amended (the "1934 Act")) of beneficial ownership (within the meaning of Rule
13d-3 promulgated under the 1934 Act) of thirty -percent (30%) or more of the
combined voting power of the Company's then outstanding voting securities;

   (b) the individuals who, as of the date hereof, are members of the Board (the
"Incumbent Board"), cease for any reason to constitute at least two thirds (2/3)
of the Board, unless the election, or nomination for election by the Company's
stockholders, of any new director was approved by a vote of at least two thirds
(2/3) of the Incumbent Board, and such new director shall, for purposes of this
Agreement, be considered as a member of the Incumbent Board;

   (c) approval by stockholders of the Company of:

                                      -11-
<PAGE>

      (i) a merger or consolidation involving the Company and an independent
third party if the stockholders of the Company, immediately before such merger
or consolidation, do not, as a result of such merger or consolidation, own,
directly or indirectly, more than seventy percent (70%) of the combined voting
power of the then outstanding voting securities of the corporation resulting
from such merger or consolidation in substantially the same proportion as their
ownership of the combined voting power of the voting securities of the Company
outstanding immediately before such merger or consolidation; or

      (ii) an agreement for the sale or other disposition of all or
substantially all of the assets of the Company to an independent third party;

   (d) the liquidation or dissolution of ICN ;

   (e) the individuals who, as of the date hereof, are members of the Board of
Directors of ICN (the "ICN Board"), cease for any reason to constitute at least
two thirds (2/3) of the ICN Board, unless the election, or nomination for
election by ICN's stockholders, of any new director was approved by a vote of at
least two thirds (2/3) of the ICN Board, and such new director shall, for
purposes of this Agreement, be considered as a member of the ICN Board;

   (f) approval by stockholders of ICN of:

      (i) a merger or consolidation involving ICN and an independent third party
if the stockholders of ICN, immediately before such merger or consolidation, do
not, as a result of such merger or consolidation, own, directly or indirectly,
more than seventy percent (70%) of the combined voting power of the then
outstanding voting securities of the corporation resulting from such merger or
consolidation in substantially the same proportion as their ownership of the
combined voting power of the voting securities of ICN outstanding immediately
before such merger or consolidation; or

   (g) an agreement for the sale or other disposition of all or substantially
all of the assets of ICN to an independent third party.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Change in Control shall not be deemed to occur
pursuant to Section 8(a), solely because thirty percent (30%) or more of the
combined voting power of the Company's then outstanding securities is acquired
by (i) a trustee or other fiduciary holding securities under one or more
employee benefit plans maintained by the Company or any of its subsidiaries or
(ii) any corporation which, immediately prior to such acquisition, is owned
directly or indirectly by the stockholders of the Company in the same proportion
as their ownership of stock in the Company immediately prior to such
acquisition. In no event shall any reduction in the equity interest of ICN in
the Company be deemed to constitute a "Change in Control" hereunder.

9. Acquisition by ICN. If ICN acquires (i) additional shares of Common Stock of
the Company or other securities of the Company which results in ICN holding 90%
or more of the outstanding capital stock of ICN or (ii) all or substantially all
of the Company' s assets (each, an "Acquisition"), then the Company shall
exercise reasonable efforts so that the unexercised portion of the Initial Stock
Option and Future Stock Options, if any, outstanding as of the closing

                                      -12-

<PAGE>

date of such transaction (the "Closing Date") shall be converted into stock
options to purchase such number of shares of common stock of ICN, par value $.01
per share, under ICN's 1998 Stock Option Plan (the "Converted Options")
determined by multiplying the number of outstanding unexercised options
identified above by a fraction, (A) the numerator of which shall be the Fair
Market Value Shares (as defined below) and (B) the denominator of which shall be
the Number of Shares (as defined below). The exercise price of the Converted
Options shall be established by multiplying the applicable exercise price of the
outstanding unexercised option being converted by a fraction, (A) the numerator
of which is the Number of Shares and (B) the denominator of which is the Fair
Market Value Shares. The Converted Options will contain substantially similar
terms as the Initial Stock Options and the Future Stock Options, if any,
including vesting, as of the Closing Date.

For purposes of this Section 9, "Fair Market Value Shares" shall mean the fair
market value of the securities, cash, other assets or combination thereof
offered to the Company's stockholders in the Acquisition, divided by the average
closing price of a share of common stock of ICN for the five trading days
immediately preceding the public announcement of the Acquisition. "Number of
Shares" shall mean (A) that number of shares of Common Stock acquired by ICN in
connection with the Acquisition, or (B) in the case of an Acquisition in which
the Company's assets are acquired by ICN, the equivalent number of shares as
determined by dividing the fair market value of such assets divided by the
average closing price of a share of Common Stock for the five trading days
immediately preceding the public announcement of the Acquisition.

10. Federal Excise Tax. The Company shall reimburse Executive for (a) any excise
tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended
(the "Code") on any portion of the compensation or benefits payable to Executive
in connection with a Change of Control, and (b) any such excise tax and any
other taxes imposed by the Code or under state or local law on the payments
provided for in this Section 10. Executive and the Company agree to reasonably
cooperate to mitigate the amount of any such tax that might become payable. The
Company shall pay to Executive the payments, or portions thereof, provided for
in this Section 10 not later than fifteen (15) days prior to the date on which
such taxes, or portions thereof, are due as determined by the tax counsel
referred to below. Tax counsel selected by the Company and reasonably acceptable
to Executive shall determine whether the payments provided for by this Section
10 shall be required, based on the actual tax rates to which Executive is
subject at the time. Executive shall, on a confidential basis, provide such
counsel with such information as such counsel reasonably requests in connection
with such determination. All determinations of tax counsel shall be binding on
Executive and the Company. Tax counsel shall determine that payments shall be
due hereunder only if, and to the extent that, it is more likely than not that
the payments or benefits are subject to a tax. In making the determinations
required by this Section 10, tax counsel may rely on benefit consultants,
accountants or other experts. The Company agrees to pay all reasonable fees and
expenses of such tax counsel. If, subsequent to the payment to Executive of
payments pursuant to this Section 10, the tax counsel referred to in this
Section 10 reasonably determines that the amount of the payments paid pursuant
to this Section 10 are greater than, or less than, the amount required to have
been paid, Executive shall reimburse the Company an amount, or the Company shall
pay to Executive an additional amount, respectively, based upon such
determination. In the event that tax counsel referred to in this Section 10

                                      -13-
<PAGE>

reasonably determines that Executive is required to pay excise tax, interest or
penalties to a governmental taxing authority as a result of his non-payment of
taxes where such tax counsel had determined that such taxes need not be paid,
the Company shall pay to Executive an additional amount equal to (A) the amount
of such interest and/or penalties, (B) the excise tax which was not paid and (C)
any excise tax and any other taxes imposed by the Code or under state or local
law on the payments provided for in this sentence.

11. Records and Confidential Data: Proprietary Inventions.

   (a) Executive acknowledges that in connection with the performance of his
duties during the Term of Agreement the Company will make available to
Executive, or Executive will have access to, certain Confidential Information
(as defined below) of the Company and its affiliates. Executive acknowledges and
agrees that any and all Confidential Information learned or obtained by
Executive during the course of his employment by the Company or otherwise,
whether developed by Executive alone or in conjunction with others or otherwise,
shall be and is the property of the Company and its affiliates.

   (b) The Confidential Information will be kept confidential by Executive, will
not be used in any manner which is detrimental to the Company, will not be used
other than in connection with Executive's discharge of his duties hereunder, and
will be safeguarded by Executive from unauthorized disclosure.

   (c) For the purposes of this Agreement, "Confidential Information" shall mean
all confidential and proprietary information of the Company and its affiliates
that has been created, discovered or developed or has otherwise become known to
the Company (including, without limitation, information created, discovered,
developed or made known by or to Executive during the period of or arising out
of his employment hereunder) or in which property rights have been assigned or
otherwise conveyed to the Company, which information has commercial value in the
business in which the Company is engaged; by way of illustration and not by
limitation, Confidential Information includes information derived from reports,
investigations, experiments, research, work in progress, drawing, designs,
plans, proposals, codes, marketing and sales programs, client lists, client
mailing lists, supplier lists, financial projections, cost summaries, pricing
formula, marketing studies relating to prospective business opportunities and
all other concepts, ideas, materials, or information prepared or performed for
or by the Company or its affiliates. For purposes of this Agreement, the
Confidential Information shall not include and Executive's obligation's shall
not extend to (i) information which is or becomes, without violation by
Executive of this Agreement, generally available to the public and (ii)
information obtained by Executive other than pursuant to or in connection with
this employment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Executive is required by law
or legal process to disclose the Confidential Information, Executive shall
provide the Company with prompt notice so that the Company may seek a protective
order or other appropriate remedy and/or waive compliance with this Section 11.
If, in the absence of a protective order or other remedy or the receipt of a
waiver by the Company, Executive is nonetheless, in the opinion of counsel,
legally compelled to disclose the Confidential Information, Executive may,
without liability hereunder, disclose only that portion of the Confidential
Information which such counsel advises is legally required to be disclosed,
provided, however, that Executive exercise reasonable efforts to preserve the
confidentiality of the Confidential Information, including

                                      -14-
<PAGE>

without limitation, cooperating with the Company to obtain an appropriate
protective order or other reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be
accorded the Confidential Information.

   (d) Executive hereby assigns to the Company any rights he may acquire during
his employment hereunder in all Confidential Information and .agrees that all
Inventions (as defined below) will be the sole property of the Company and its
assigns, and the Company and its assigns will be the sole owner of all the
patents and other rights in connection therewith. Executive hereby assigns to
the Company any rights he may acquire during the period of his employment
hereunder in all Inventions and agrees to assist the Company in every proper way
(but at the Company's expense) to obtain and from time to time enforce patents
on Inventions in any and all countries. Executive shall execute all documents
for use in applying for and obtaining such patents thereon and enforcing same,
as the Company may desire, together with any assignments thereof to the Company
or persons designated by it. Executive's obligation to assist the Company in
obtaining and enforcing patents for Inventions in any and all countries will
continue beyond the termination of employment hereunder, but the Company will
compensate Executive at a reasonable rate after such termination for time
actually spent by him at the Company's request on such assistance. Executive
acknowledges that, in accordance with Section 2872 of the California Labor Code,
the assignment provisions in this paragraph (d), do not apply to Inventions for
which no equipment, supplies, facility, or trade secret information of the
Company was used, which were developed entirely on Executive's own time, and (i)
which do not relate (a) to the business of the Company or (b) to the Company's
actual or demonstrably anticipated research or development or (ii) which do not
result from any work performed by Executive for the Company. Executive has
identified on Schedule I hereto all inventions or improvements relevant to the
subject matter of Executive's employment hereunder which have been made or
conceived or first reduced to practice by Executive alone or jointly with others
prior to the date hereof which Executive desires to remove from the operation of
this Agreement; and Executive represents that such list is complete. If there is
no such list on Schedule I, Executive represents that he has made no such
inventions and improvements as of the date hereof.

   (e) For purposes of this Agreement, "Inventions" shall mean all improvements,
inventions, formulae, processes, techniques, know-how and data whether or not
patentable, made or conceived or reduced to practice or learned by Executive,
either alone or jointly with others, during Executive's employment hereunder
which are related to or useful in the business of the Company, or result from
tasks assigned Executive by the Company, or result from use of premises owned,
leased or contracted for by the Company.

   (f) Executive's obligations under this Section 11 shall survive the
termination of the Term of Agreement.

12. Covenant Not to Solicit.

   (a) Covenant Not to Solicit. To protect the Confidential Information and
other trade secrets of the Company, Executive agrees, during the term of this
Agreement and for a period of twelve months after Executive's cessation of
employment with the Company, not to solicit or participate in or assist in any
way in the solicitation of any employees or consultants of

                                      -15-
<PAGE>

the Company. For purposes of this covenant, "solicit" or "solicitation" means
directly or indirectly influencing or attempting to influence employees or
consultants of the Company to become employed with any other person,
partnership, firm, corporation or other entity. Executive agrees that the
covenants contained in this Section 12 are reasonable and desirable to protect
the Confidential Information of the Company.

   (b) It is the intent and desire of Executive and the Company that the
restrictive provisions of this Section 12 be enforced to the fullest extent
permissible under the laws and public policies as applied in each jurisdiction
in which enforcement is sought. If any particular provision of this Section 12
shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable, such covenant shall be
amended, without any action on the part of either party hereto, to delete
therefrom the portion so determined to be invalid or unenforceable, such
deletion to apply only with respect to the operation of such covenant in the
particular jurisdiction in which such adjudication is made.

   (c) Executive's obligations under this Section 12 shall survive the
termination of the Term of Agreement.

13. Remedies for Breach of Obligations under Sections 11 or 12 hereof. Executive
acknowledges that the Company will suffer irreparable injury, not readily
susceptible of valuation in monetary damages, if Executive breaches his
obligations under Sections 11 or 12 hereof. Accordingly, Executive agrees that
the Company will be entitled, in addition to any other available remedies, to
seek injunctive relief against any breach or prospective breach by Executive of
his obligations under Sections 11 or 12 hereof. The Company shall seek such
relief in any Federal or state court where venue would be appropriate based upon
Executive's principal residence or his principal place of business, or, at the
Company's election, in any other state in which Executive maintains his
principal residence or his principal place of business as provided for in
Section 14(g) below. Executive hereby submits to the non - exclusive
jurisdiction of all those courts for the purposes of any actions or proceedings
instituted by the Company to obtain that injunctive relief, and Executive agrees
that process in any or all of those actions or proceedings may be served by
registered mail, addressed to the last address provided by Executive to the
Company, or in any other manner authorized by law. Notice in such proceedings
shall be given in the manner required by law. Executive further agrees that, in
addition to any other remedies available to the Company by operation of law or
otherwise, in the event Executive willfully and materially breaches any of his
obligations under Sections 11 or 12 hereof, he shall not be entitled to any
amounts which may otherwise be payable under the terms of Sections 7(b), 7(c),
7(d) and 7(e) hereof and under the terms of the benefit plans of the Company in
which he participates and to which he might otherwise then be entitled by virtue
hereof. Nothing in Sections 11 or 12 shall operate as a diminution of
Executive's obligations under the Company's standard agreements pertaining to
the subject matter of such sections.

   (a) Successors and Assigns.

      (i) This Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of
the Company, its successors and assigns and the Company shall require any
successor or assign to expressly assume and agree to perform this Agreement in
the same manner and to the

                                      -16-

<PAGE>

same extent that the Company would be required to perform if no such succession
or assignment had taken place. The term "the Company" as used herein shall mean
a corporation or other entity acquiring all or substantially all the assets and
business of the Company (including this Agreement) whether by operation of law
or otherwise.

      (ii) Neither this Agreement nor any right or interest hereunder shall be
assignable or transferable by Executive, his beneficiaries or legal
representatives, except by will or by the, laws of descent and distribution.
This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by Executive's
legal personal representatives.

   (b) Fees and Expenses: Legal Counsel. The Company shall pay all reasonable
legal fees and related expenses, up to a maximum amount of $20,000, incurred by
Executive in connection with the negotiation of this Agreement and related
employment arrangements. Executive acknowledges that he has had the opportunity
to consult with legal counsel of his choice in connection with the drafting,
negotiation and execution of this Agreement and related employment arrangements.

   (c) Notice. For the purposes of this Agreement, notices and all other
communications provided for in the Agreement (including the Notice of
Termination) shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given
when personally delivered or sent by Certified mail, return receipt requested,
postage prepaid, addressed to the respective addresses last given by each party
to the other, provided that all notices to the Company shall be directed to the
attention of the Chairman of the Board with a copy to the Secretary of the
Company. All notices and communications shall be deemed to have been received on
the date of delivery thereof or on the third business day after the mailing
thereof, except that notice of change of address shall be effective only upon
receipt.

   (d) Withholding. The Company shall be entitled to withhold the amount, if
any, of all taxes of any applicable jurisdiction required to be withheld by an
employer with respect to any amount paid to Executive hereunder. The Company, in
its sole and absolute discretion, shall make all determinations as to whether it
is obligated to withhold any taxes hereunder and the amount hereof.

   (e) Release of Claims. The Company may condition payment of the cash
termination benefits described in Sections 7(b), 7(c), 7(d) and 7(e) of this
Agreement upon the delivery by Executive of a signed release of claims in a form
customarily employed by the Company; provided, however, that Executive shall not
be required to release any rights Executive may have to be indemnified or held
harmless by the Company under the certificate of incorporation or by-laws of the
Company.

   (f) Modification. No provision of this Agreement may be modified, waived or
discharged unless such waiver, modification or discharge is agreed to in writing
and signed by Executive and the Company. No waiver by either party hereto at any
time of any breach by the other party hereto of, or compliance with, any
condition or provision of this Agreement to be performed by such other party
shall be deemed a waiver of similar or dissimilar provisions or conditions at
the same or at any prior or subsequent time.

                                      -17-

<PAGE>

   (g) Arbitration. If any legally actionable dispute arises under this
Agreement or otherwise which cannot be resolved by mutual discussion between the
parties, then the Company and Executive each agree to resolve that dispute by
binding arbitration before an arbitrator experienced in employment law. Said
arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the rules applicable to
employment disputes of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS")
and the law applicable to the claim. The parties shall have 30 calendar days
after notice of such arbitration has been given to attempt to agree on the
selection of an arbitrator. In the event the parties are unable to agree in such
time, JAMS will provide a list of nine available arbitrators and an arbitrator
will be selected from such nine-member panel provided by JAMS by the parties
alternately striking out one name of a potential arbitrator until only one name
remains. The party entitled to strike an arbitrator first shall be selected by a
toss of a coin. The parties agree that this agreement to arbitrate includes any
such disputes that the Company may have against Executive, or Executive may have
against the Company and/or its related entities and/or employees, arising out of
or relating to this Agreement, or Executive's employment or Executive's
termination including, but not limited to, any claims of discrimination or
harassment in violation of applicable law and any other aspect of Executive's
compensation, employment, or Executive's termination. The parties further agree
that arbitration as provided for in this Section 14(g) is the exclusive and
binding remedy for any such dispute and will be used instead of any court
action, which is hereby expressly waived, except for any request by either party
for temporary or preliminary injunctive relief pending arbitration in accordance
with applicable law or for breaches by Executive of Executive's obligations
under Sections 11 or 12 above or an administrative claim with an administrative
agency. The parties agree that the arbitration provided herein shall be
conducted in Orange County, California unless otherwise mutually agreed or
unless Executive's primary place of employment is a different location. The
Company shall pay the cost of any arbitration brought pursuant to this
paragraph, including filing fees, administrative fees and the costs of the
arbitrator, excluding, however, the filing fees of Executive if he is the moving
party to the extent such fees are equal to or less than those that would
applicable to file a complaint in the Orange County Superior Court and the cost
of representation of Executive unless such cost is awarded in accordance with
law or otherwise awarded by the arbitrators.

   (h) Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed and
enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California applicable to
contracts executed in and to be performed entirely within such State, without
giving effect to the conflict of law principles thereof.

   (i) No Conflicts. Executive represents and warrants to the Company that he is
not a party to or otherwise bound by any agreement or arrangement (including,
without limitation, any license, covenant, or commitment of any nature), or
subject to any judgment, decree, or order of any court or administrative agency,
that would conflict with or will be in conflict with or in any way preclude,
limit or inhibit Executive's ability to execute this Agreement or to carry out
his duties and responsibilities hereunder.

   (j) Trade Secrets of Others. The Company acknowledges that Executive, as a
current and/or former employee or independent contractor of another company, may
previously have been privy to trade secrets and/or confidential information of
such other company, and may be under an obligation to such other company to
maintain the confidentiality of such trade

                                      -18-

<PAGE>

secrets or confidential information. Accordingly, to the extent Executive is
under such an obligation, Executive shall not: (a) bring any records, notes,
files, drawings, documents, plans and like items, provided to him in confidence
by such other company, or any copies thereof, relating to or containing or
disclosing confidential information or trade secrets of any such other company
on the premises of the Company or otherwise use such documents and items in the
performance of services for the Company; or (b) disclose any confidential
information or trade secrets provided to Executive in confidence by such other
company to any other employee of the Company; provided, however, that this
prohibition only applies to documents or information that Executive obtained or
learned before the beginning of his relationship with the Company.

   (k) Severability. The provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed severable
and the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision shall not affect the
validity or enforceability of the other provisions hereof

   (l) Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between
the parties hereto and supersedes all prior agreements, if any, understandings
and arrangements, oral or written, between the parties hereto with respect to
the subject matter hereof. No agreement or representations, oral or otherwise,
express or implied, with respect to the subject matter hereof have been made by
either party which are not expressly set forth in this Agreement.
