     provided herein, consist entirely of D Term Loans of the same Type and

                                       -2-

     (y) no D Term Loans maintained as Eurodollar Loans may be incurred prior to

     shall not exceed for any Bank at any time outstanding that aggregate
     principal amount which, when combined with (I) the aggregate principal
     amount of all other then outstanding Revolving Loans made by such Bank and
     (II) such Bank's RL Percentage, if any, of the Swingline Loans then
     outstanding and the Letter of Credit Outstandings (exclusive of Unpaid
     Drawings relating to Letters of Credit which are repaid with the proceeds
     of, and simultaneously with the incurrence of, Revolving Loans or Swingline
     Loans) at such time, equals the Revolving Loan Commitment, if any, of such
     Bank at such time.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained
     herein, the aggregate amount of Revolving Loans incurred on the Initial
     Borrowing Date may not exceed $10,000,000.

     (B)  Subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set forth, BTCo in
its individual capacity agrees to make at any time and from time to time after
the Initial Borrowing Date and prior to the Swingline Expiry Date, a loan or
loans to the Borrower (each, a "Swingline Loan" and, collectively, the
"Swingline Loans"), which Swingline Loans (i) shall be made and maintained as
Base Rate Loans, (ii) shall be denominated in U.S. Dollars, (iii) may be repaid
and reborrowed in accordance with the provisions hereof, (iv) shall not exceed
in aggregate principal amount at any time outstanding, when combined with the
aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Loans then outstanding and the
Letter of Credit Outstandings (exclusive of Unpaid Drawings relating to Letters
of Credit which are repaid with the proceeds of, and simultaneously with the
incurrence of, Revolving Loans or Swingline Loans) at such time, an amount equal
to the Total Revolving Loan Commitment then in effect and (v) shall not exceed
in aggregate principal amount at any time outstanding the Maximum Swingline
Amount.  BTCo shall not be obligated to make any Swingline Loans at a time when 
a Bank Default exists unless BTCo has entered into arrangements satisfactory to 
it and the Borrower to eliminate BTCo's risk with respect to the Defaulting 
Bank's or Banks' participation in such Swingline

                                       -3-

Loans, including by cash collateralizing such Defaulting Bank's or Banks' RL
Percentage of the outstanding Swingline Loans.  BTCo will not make a Swingline
Loan after it has received written notice from the Borrower or the Required
Banks stating that a Default or an Event of Default exists until such time as
BTCo shall have received a written notice of (i) rescission of such notice from
the party or parties originally delivering the same or (ii) a waiver of such
Default or Event of Default from the Required Banks (or all the Banks to the
extent required by Section 12.12).

     (C)  On any Business Day, BTCo may, in its sole discretion, give notice to
the RL Banks that its outstanding Swingline Loans shall be funded with a
Borrowing of Revolving Loans (PROVIDED, that each such notice shall be deemed to
have been automatically given upon the occurrence of a Default or an Event of
Default under Section 9.05 or upon the exercise of any of the remedies provided
in the last paragraph of Section 9), in which case a Borrowing of Revolving
Loans constituting Base Rate Loans (each such Borrowing, a "Mandatory
Borrowing") shall be made on the immediately succeeding Business Day by all RL
Banks PRO RATA based on each RL Bank's RL Percentage, and the proceeds thereof
shall be applied directly to repay BTCo for such outstanding Swingline Loans.
Each RL Bank hereby irrevocably agrees to make Base Rate Loans upon one Business
Day's notice pursuant to each Mandatory Borrowing in the amount and in the
manner specified in the preceding sentence and on the date specified in writing
by BTCo notwithstanding (i) that the amount of the Mandatory Borrowing may not
comply with the Minimum Borrowing Amount otherwise required hereunder, (ii)
whether any conditions specified in Section 5 are then satisfied, (iii) whether
a Default or an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, (iv) the date
of such Mandatory Borrowing and (v) any reduction in the Total Revolving Loan
Commitment after any such Swingline Loans were made.  In the event that any
Mandatory Borrowing cannot for any reason be made on the date otherwise required
above (including, without limitation, as a result of the commencement of a
proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code in respect of the Borrower), each RL Bank
(other than BTCo) hereby agrees that it shall forthwith purchase from BTCo
(without recourse or warranty) such assignment of the outstanding Swingline
Loans as shall be necessary to cause the RL Banks to share in such Swingline
Loans ratably based upon their respective RL Percentages, PROVIDED that all
interest payable on the Swingline Loans shall be for the account of BTCo until
the date the respective assignment is purchased and, to the extent attributable
to the purchased assignment, shall be payable to the RL Bank purchasing same
from and after such date of purchase.

     1.02  MINIMUM BORROWING AMOUNTS, ETC.  The aggregate principal amount of
each Borrowing under a Facility shall not be less than the Minimum Borrowing
Amount for such Facility.  More than one Borrowing may be incurred on any day;
PROVIDED, that at no time shall there be outstanding more than eight Borrowings
of Eurodollar Loans.

     1.03  NOTICE OF BORROWING.  (a)  Whenever the Borrower desires to incur
Loans under any Facility (excluding Borrowings of Swingline Loans and Mandatory
Borrowings), it shall give the Administrative Agent at its Notice Office, prior
to 1:00 P.M. (New York time), at least three Business Days' prior written notice
(or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) of each Borrowing of
Eurodollar Loans and at least one Business Day's prior written notice (or
telephonic notice promptly confirmed in

                                       -4-

writing) of each Borrowing of Base Rate Loans to be made hereunder.  Each such
notice (each, a "Notice of Borrowing") shall, except as provided in Section
1.10, be irrevocable, and, in the case of each written notice and each
confirmation of telephonic notice, shall be in the form of Exhibit A-1,
appropriately completed to specify (i) the Facility pursuant to which such
Borrowing is to be made, (ii) the aggregate principal amount of the Loans to be
made pursuant to such Borrowing, (iii) the date of such Borrowing (which shall
be a Business Day) and (iv) whether the respective Borrowing shall consist of
Base Rate Loans or, to the extent permitted hereunder, Eurodollar Loans and, if
Eurodollar Loans, the Interest Period to be initially applicable thereto.  The
Administrative Agent shall promptly give each Bank written notice (or telephonic
notice promptly confirmed in writing) of each proposed Borrowing, of such Bank's
proportionate share thereof, if any, and of the other matters covered by the
Notice of Borrowing.

     (b)  (i)  Whenever the Borrower desires to make a Borrowing of Swingline
Loans hereunder, it shall give BTCo not later than 1:00 P.M. (New York time) on
the day such Swingline Loan is to be made, written notice (or telephonic notice
promptly confirmed in writing) of each Swingline Loan to be made hereunder.
Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify in each case (x) the
date of such Borrowing (which shall be a Business Day) and (y) the aggregate
principal amount of the Swingline Loan to be made pursuant to such Borrowing.

     (ii)  Mandatory Borrowings shall be made upon the notice specified in
Section 1.01(C), with the Borrower irrevocably agreeing, by its incurrence of
any Swingline Loan, to the making of Mandatory Borrowings as set forth in such
Section.

     (c)  Without in any way limiting the obligation of the Borrower to confirm
in writing any telephonic notice permitted to be given hereunder, the
Administrative Agent or BTCo (in the case of a Borrowing of Swingline Loans) or
the respective Letter of Credit Issuer (in the case of Letters of Credit), as
the case may be, may prior to receipt of written confirmation act without
liability upon the basis of such telephonic notice, believed by the
Administrative Agent, BTCo or such Letter of Credit Issuer, as the case may be,
in good faith to be from an Authorized Officer of the Borrower.  In each such
case, the Borrower hereby waives the right to dispute the Administrative
Agent's, BTCo's or such Letter of Credit Issuer's record of the terms of such
telephonic notice.

     1.04  DISBURSEMENT OF FUNDS.  (a)  No later than 1:00 P.M. (New York time)
on the date specified in each Notice of Borrowing (or (x) in the case of
Swingline Loans, not later than 3:00 P.M. (New York time) on the date specified
in Section 1.03(b)(i) or (y) in the case of Mandatory Borrowings, not later than
12:00 Noon (New York time) on the date specified in Section 1.01(C)), each Bank
with a Commitment under the respective Facility will make available its pro rata
share, if any, of each Borrowing requested to be made on such date (or in the
case of Swingline Loans, BTCo shall make available the full amount thereof) in
the manner provided below.  All amounts shall be made available to the
Administrative Agent in U.S.

                                       -5-

Dollars and immediately available funds at the Payment Office and the
Administrative Agent promptly will make available to the Borrower by depositing
to its account at the Payment Office the aggregate of the amounts so made
available in the type of funds received.  Unless the Administrative Agent shall
have been notified by any Bank prior to the date of Borrowing that such Bank
does not intend to make available to the Administrative Agent its portion of the
Borrowing or Borrowings to be made on such date, the Administrative Agent may
assume that such Bank has made such amount available to the Administrative Agent
on such date of Borrowing, and the Administrative Agent, in reliance upon such
assumption, may (in its sole discretion and without any obligation to do so)
make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount.  If such corresponding
amount is not in fact made available to the Administrative Agent by such Bank
and the Administrative Agent has made available same to the Borrower, the
Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount from
such Bank.  If such Bank does not pay such corresponding amount forthwith upon
the Administrative Agent's demand therefor, the Administrative Agent shall
promptly notify the Borrower, and the Borrower shall immediately pay such
corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent.  The Administrative Agent
shall also be entitled to recover from the Bank or the Borrower, as the case may
be, interest on such corresponding amount in respect of each day from the date
such corresponding amount was made available by the Administrative Agent to the
Borrower to the date such corresponding amount is recovered by the
Administrative Agent, at a rate per annum equal to (x) if paid by such Bank, the
overnight Federal Funds rate or (y) if paid by the Borrower, the then applicable
rate of interest, calculated in accordance with Section 1.08, for the respective
Loans.

     (b)  Nothing herein shall be deemed to relieve any Bank from its obligation
to fulfill its commitments hereunder or to prejudice any rights which the
Borrower may have against any Bank as a result of any default by such Bank
hereunder.

     1.05  NOTES.  (a)  The Borrower's obligation to pay the principal of, and
interest on, all the Loans made to it by each Bank shall be evidenced (i) if A

as the case may be, evidenced thereby, (vi) be subject to voluntary prepayment
as provided in Section 4.01 and

                                       -7-

mandatory repayment as provided in Section 4.02, and (vii) be entitled to the
benefits of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents.

     (g)  The Swingline Note issued to BTCo shall (i) be executed by the
Borrower, (ii) be payable to the order of BTCo or its registered assigns and be
dated the Initial Borrowing Date, (iii) be in a stated principal amount equal to
the Maximum Swingline Amount and be payable in the principal amount of the
Swingline Loans evidenced thereby, (iv) mature on the Swingline Expiry Date, (v)
bear interest as provided in Section 1.08 in respect of the Base Rate Loans
evidenced thereby, (vi) be subject to voluntary prepayment as provided in
Section 4.01 and mandatory repayment as provided in Section 4.02, and (vii) be
entitled to the benefits of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents.

     (h)  Each Bank will note on its internal records the amount of each Loan
made by it and each payment in respect thereof and will prior to any transfer of
any of its Notes endorse on the reverse side thereof the outstanding principal
amount of Loans evidenced thereby.  Failure to make any such notation shall not
affect the Borrower's obligations in respect of such Loans.

     1.06  CONVERSIONS.  The Borrower shall have the option to convert on any
Business Day occurring on or after the earlier of (x) the 30th day after the
Initial Borrowing Date and (y) the Syndication Date, all or a portion at least
equal to the applicable Minimum Borrowing Amount of the outstanding principal
amount of the Loans (other than Swingline Loans which at all times shall be
maintained as Base Rate Loans) owing by the Borrower pursuant to a single
Facility into a Borrowing or Borrowings of another Type of Loan under such
Facility; PROVIDED, that (i) except as otherwise provided in Section 1.10(b),
Eurodollar Loans may be converted into Base Rate Loans only on the last day of
an Interest Period applicable thereto and no partial conversion of a Borrowing
of Eurodollar Loans shall reduce the outstanding principal amount of the
Eurodollar Loans made pursuant to such Borrowing to less than the Minimum
Borrowing Amount applicable thereto, (ii) Base Rate Loans may only be converted
into Eurodollar Loans if no Default or Event of Default is in existence on the
date of the conversion and (iii) Borrowings of Eurodollar Loans resulting from
this Section 1.06 shall be limited in number as provided in Section 1.02.  Each
such conversion shall be effected by the Borrower by giving the Administrative
Agent at its Notice Office, prior to 1:00 P.M. (New York time), at least three
Business Days' (or one Business Day's in the case of a conversion into Base Rate
Loans) prior written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing)
(each a "Notice of Conversion") specifying the Loans to be so converted, the
Type of Loans to be converted into and, if to be converted into a Borrowing of
Eurodollar Loans, the Interest Period to be initially applicable thereto.  The
Administrative Agent shall give each Bank prompt notice of any such proposed
conversion affecting any of its Loans.

     1.07  PRO RATA BORROWINGS.  All Borrowings of Loans (other than Swingline
Loans) under this Agreement shall be made by the Banks PRO RATA on the basis of
their A Term Loan Commitments, B Term Loan Commitments, C Term Loan Commitments,
D Term Loan Commitments or Revolving Loan Commitments, as the case may be.  It
is understood that no Bank shall be responsible for any default by any other
Bank of its obligation to make Loans

                                       -8-

hereunder and that each Bank shall be obligated to make the Loans to be made by
it hereunder, regardless of the failure of any other Bank to fulfill its
commitments hereunder.

     1.08  INTEREST.  (a)  The unpaid principal amount of each Base Rate Loan
shall bear interest from the date of the Borrowing thereof until the earlier of
(i) the maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise) of such Base Rate Loan
and (ii) the conversion of such Base Rate Loan to a Eurodollar Loan pursuant to
Section 1.06, at a rate per annum which shall at all times be the Applicable
Base Rate Margin plus the Base Rate in effect from time to time.

     (b)  The unpaid principal amount of each Eurodollar Loan shall bear
interest from the date of the Borrowing thereof until the earlier of (i) the
maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise) of such Eurodollar Loan and (ii)
the conversion of such Eurodollar Loan to a Base Rate Loan pursuant to Section
1.06, 1.09 or 1.10(b), as applicable, at a rate per annum which shall at all
times be the Applicable Eurodollar Margin plus the relevant Eurodollar Rate.

     (c)  Overdue principal and, to the extent permitted by law, overdue
interest in respect of each Loan shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal
to the greater of (i) the rate which is 2% in excess of the rate otherwise
applicable to Base Rate Loans of such Facility from time to time and (ii) the
rate which is 2% in excess of the rate then borne by such Loan; PROVIDED, that
principal in respect of Eurodollar Loans shall bear interest after the same
becomes due (whether by acceleration or otherwise) until the end of the
applicable Interest Period for such Eurodollar Loan at a per annum rate equal to
2% in excess of the rate of interest applicable on the due date therefor.
Interest which accrues under this Section 1.08(c) shall be payable on demand.

     (d)  Interest shall accrue from and including the date of any Borrowing to
but excluding the date of any repayment thereof and shall be payable (i) in
respect of each Base Rate Loan, quarterly in arrears on each Quarterly Payment
Date, (ii) in respect of each Eurodollar Loan, on (x) the date of any prepayment
or repayment thereof (on the amount prepaid or repaid) and (y) the last day of
each Interest Period applicable thereto and, in the case of an Interest Period
in excess of three months, on each date occurring at three month intervals after
the first day of such Interest Period and (iii) in respect of each Loan, at
maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise) and, after such maturity, on
demand.

     (e)  All computations of interest hereunder shall be made in accordance
with Section 12.07(b).

     (f)  The Administrative Agent, upon determining the interest rate for any
Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans for any Interest Period, shall promptly notify the
Borrower and the Banks thereof.

     1.09  INTEREST PERIODS.  At the time the Borrower gives a Notice of
Borrowing or Notice of Conversion in respect of the making of, or conversion
into, a Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans (in the case of the initial Interest
Period applicable thereto) or prior to 1:00 P.M. (New York

                                       -9-

time) on the third Business Day prior to the expiration of an Interest Period
applicable to a Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans, it shall have the right to elect
by giving the Administrative Agent written notice (or telephonic notice promptly
confirmed in writing) of the Interest Period applicable to such Borrowing, which
Interest Period shall, at the option of the Borrower, be a one, two, three or
six month period or, to the extent approved by all the Banks with a Commitment
and/or outstanding Loans, as the case may be, of the respective Facility, a nine
or twelve-month period.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained
above:

           (i)  all Eurodollar Loans comprising a Borrowing shall have the same
     Interest Period;

          (ii)  the initial Interest Period for any Borrowing of Eurodollar
     Loans shall commence on the date of such Borrowing (including the date of
     any conversion from a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans) and each Interest
     Period occurring thereafter in respect of such Borrowing shall commence on
     the day on which the next preceding Interest Period expires;

         (iii)  if any Interest Period begins on a day for which there is no
     numerically corresponding day in the calendar month at the end of such
     Interest Period, such Interest Period shall end on the last Business Day of
     such calendar month;

          (iv)  if any Interest Period would otherwise expire on a day which is
     not a Business Day, such Interest Period shall expire on the next
     succeeding Business Day, PROVIDED, that if any Interest Period would
     otherwise expire on a day which is not a Business Day but is a day of the
     month after which no further Business Day occurs in such month, such
     Interest Period shall expire on the next preceding Business Day;

           (v)  no Interest Period for a Borrowing under a Facility may be
     elected if it would extend beyond the respective Maturity Date for such
     Facility;

          (vi)  no Interest Period may be elected at any time when a Default or
     an Event of Default is then in existence; and

         (vii)  no Interest Period with respect to any Borrowing of Term Loans
     shall extend beyond any date upon which a mandatory prepayment of such Term
     Loans is required to be made under Section 4.02(A)(b)(i), (ii), (iii) or
     (iv), as the case may be, if, after giving effect to the selection of such
     Interest Period, the aggregate principal amount of such Term Loans
     maintained as Eurodollar Loans with Interest Periods ending after such date
     of mandatory repayment would exceed the aggregate principal amount of such
     Term Loans permitted to be outstanding after such mandatory prepayment.

If upon the expiration of any Interest Period, the Borrower has failed to elect,
or is not permitted to elect by virtue of the application of clause (vi) above,
a new Interest Period to be

                                      -10-

applicable to the respective Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans as provided above,
the Borrower shall be deemed to have elected to convert such Borrowing into a
Borrowing of Base Rate Loans effective as of the expiration date of such current
Interest Period.

     1.10  INCREASED COSTS, ILLEGALITY, ETC.  (a)  In the event that (x) in the
case of clause (i) below, the Administrative Agent or (y) in the case of clauses
(ii) and (iii) below, any Bank, shall have determined (which determination
shall, absent manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding upon all
parties hereto):

           (i)  on any date for determining the Eurodollar Rate for any Interest
     Period, that, by reason of any changes arising after the date of this
     Agreement affecting the interbank Eurodollar market, adequate and fair
     means do not exist for ascertaining the applicable interest rate on the
     basis provided for in the definition of Eurodollar Rate; or

          (ii)  at any time, that such Bank shall incur increased costs or
     reductions in the amounts received or receivable hereunder with respect to
     any Eurodollar Loans (other than any increased cost or reduction in the
     amount received or receivable resulting from the imposition of or a change
     in the rate of net income taxes or similar charges) because of (x) any
     change since the date of this Agreement in any applicable law, governmental
     rule, regulation, guideline, order or request (whether or not having the
     force of law), or in the interpretation or administration thereof and
     including the introduction of any new law or governmental rule, regulation,
     guideline, order or request (such as, for example, but not limited to a
     change in official reserve requirements, but, in all events, excluding
     reserves required under Regulation D to the extent included in the
     computation of the Eurodollar Rate) and/or (y) other circumstances
     affecting such Bank, the interbank Eurodollar market or the position of
     such Bank in such market; or

         (iii)  at any time since the date of this Agreement, that the making or
     continuance of any Eurodollar Loan has become unlawful by compliance by
     such Bank in good faith with any law, governmental rule, regulation,
     guideline or order (or would conflict with any such governmental rule,
     regulation, guideline or order not having the force of law but with which
     such Bank customarily complies even though the failure to comply therewith
     would not be unlawful), or has become impracticable as a result of a
     contingency occurring after the date of this Agreement which materially and
     adversely affects the interbank Eurodollar market;

then, and in any such event, such Bank (or the Administrative Agent in the case
of clause (i) above) shall (x) on such date and (y) within 10 Business Days of
the date on which such event no longer exists give notice (by telephone
confirmed in writing) to the Borrower and (except in the case of clause (i)) to
the Administrative Agent of such determination (which notice the Administrative
Agent shall promptly transmit to each of the other Banks).  Thereafter (x) in
the case of clause (i) above, Eurodollar Loans shall no longer be available
until such time as the

                                      -11-

Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the Banks that the circumstances
giving rise to such notice by the Administrative Agent no longer exist, and any
Notice of Borrowing or Notice of Conversion given by the Borrower with respect
to Eurodollar Loans which have not yet been incurred shall be deemed rescinded
by the Borrower, (y) in the case of clause (ii) above, the Borrower agrees to
pay to such Bank, upon written demand therefor (accompanied by the written
notice referred to below), such additional amounts (in the form of an increased
rate of, or a different method of calculating, interest or otherwise as such
Bank in its sole discretion shall determine) as shall be required to compensate
such Bank for such increased costs or reductions in amounts received or
receivable hereunder (a written notice as to the additional amounts owed to such
Bank, showing the basis for the calculation thereof, submitted to the Borrower
by such Bank shall, absent manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding
upon all parties hereto) and (z) in the case of clause (iii) above, the Borrower
shall take one of the actions specified in Section 1.10(b) as promptly as
possible and, in any event, within the time period required by law.

     (b)  At any time that any Eurodollar Loan is affected by the circumstances
described in Section 1.10(a)(ii) or (iii), the Borrower may (and, in the case of
a Eurodollar Loan affected pursuant to Section 1.10(a)(iii), the Borrower shall)
either (i) if the affected Eurodollar Loan is then being made pursuant to a
Borrowing, cancel said Borrowing by giving the Administrative Agent telephonic
notice (confirmed promptly in writing) thereof on the same date that the
Borrower was notified by a Bank pursuant to Section 1.10(a)(ii) or (iii)), or
(ii) if the affected Eurodollar Loan is then outstanding, upon at least three
Business Days' notice to the Administrative Agent, require the affected Bank to
convert each such Eurodollar Loan into a Base Rate Loan (which conversion, in
the case of the circumstances described in Section 1.10(a)(iii), shall occur no
later than the last day of the Interest Period then applicable to such
Eurodollar Loan (or such earlier date as shall be required by applicable law));
PROVIDED, that if more than one Bank is affected at any time, then all affected
Banks must be treated the same pursuant to this Section 1.10(b).

     (c)  If any Bank shall have determined that after the date hereof, the
adoption or effectiveness of any applicable law, rule or regulation regarding
capital adequacy, or any change therein, or any change in the interpretation or
administration thereof by any governmental authority, central bank or comparable
agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance
by such Bank with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether
or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or
comparable agency, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return
on such Bank's capital or assets as a consequence of its commitments or
obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Bank could have achieved
but for such adoption, effectiveness, change or compliance (taking into
consideration such Bank's policies with respect to capital adequacy), then from
time to time, upon written demand by such Bank (with a copy to the
Administrative Agent), accompanied by the notice referred to in the last
sentence of this clause (c), the Borrower agrees to pay to such Bank such
additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Bank for such reduction.
Each Bank, upon determining in good faith that any additional amounts will be
payable pursuant to this Section 1.10(c), will give prompt written notice

                                      -12-

thereof to the Borrower, which notice shall set forth the basis of the
calculation of such additional amounts, although the failure to give any such
notice shall not release or diminish the Borrower's obligations to pay
additional amounts pursuant to this Section 1.10(c) upon the subsequent receipt
of such notice.

     1.11  COMPENSATION.  The Borrower agrees to compensate each Bank, upon its
written request (which request shall set forth the basis for requesting such
compensation), for all reasonable losses, expenses and liabilities (including,
without limitation, any loss, expense or liability incurred by reason of the
liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds required by such Bank to
fund its Eurodollar Loans but excluding loss of anticipated profit with respect
to any Loans) which such Bank may sustain:  (i) if for any reason (other than a
default by such Bank or the Administrative Agent) a Borrowing of Eurodollar
Loans does not occur on a date specified therefor in a Notice of Borrowing or
Notice of Conversion (whether or not withdrawn by the Borrower or deemed
withdrawn pursuant to Section 1.10(a)); (ii) if any repayment (including any
repayment made pursuant to Section 4.01 or 4.02 or as a result of an
acceleration of the Loans pursuant to Section 9) or conversion of any Eurodollar
Loans occurs on a date which is not the last day of an Interest Period
applicable thereto; (iii) if any prepayment of any Eurodollar Loans is not made
on any date specified in a notice of prepayment given by the Borrower; or (iv)
as a consequence of (x) any other default by the Borrower to repay its
Eurodollar Loans when required by the terms of this Agreement or (y) an election
made pursuant to Section 1.10(b).  Calculation of all amounts payable to a Bank
under this Section 1.11 shall be made as though that Bank had actually funded
its relevant Eurodollar Loan through the purchase of a Eurodollar deposit
bearing interest at the Eurodollar Rate in an amount equal to the amount of that
Loan, having a maturity comparable to the relevant Interest Period and through
the transfer of such Eurodollar deposit from an offshore office of that Bank to
a domestic office of that Bank in the United States of America; PROVIDED,
HOWEVER, that each Bank may fund each of its Eurodollar Loans in any manner it
sees fit and the foregoing assumption shall be utilized only for the calculation
of amounts payable under this Section 1.11.  It is further understood and agreed
that if any repayment of Eurodollar Loans pursuant to Section 4.01 or any
conversion of Eurodollar Loans pursuant to Section 1.06 in either case occurs on
a date which is not the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto, such
repayment or conversion shall be accompanied by any amounts owing to any Bank
pursuant to this Section 1.11.

     1.12  CHANGE OF LENDING OFFICE.  Each Bank agrees that, upon the occurrence
of any event giving rise to the operation of Section 1.10(a)(ii) or (iii),
1.10(c), 2.05 or 4.04 with respect to such Bank, it will, if requested by the
Borrower, use reasonable efforts (subject to overall policy considerations of
such Bank) to designate another lending office for any Loans or Letters of
Credit affected by such event; PROVIDED, that such designation is made on such
terms that, in the sole judgment of such Bank, such Bank and its lending office
suffer no economic, legal or regulatory disadvantage, with the object of
avoiding the consequences of the event giving rise to the operation of any such
Section.  Nothing in this Section 1.12 shall affect or postpone any of the
obligations of the Borrower or the right of any Bank provided in Section 1.10,
2.05 or 4.04.

                                      -13-

     1.13  REPLACEMENT OF BANKS.  (x)  If any Bank becomes a Defaulting Bank,
(y) upon the occurrence of any event giving rise to the operation of Section
1.10(a)(ii) or (iii), Section 1.10(c), Section 2.05 or Section 4.04 with respect
to any Bank which results in such Bank charging to the Borrower increased costs
in excess of those being generally charged by the other Banks or (z) in the case
of a refusal by a Bank to consent to a proposed change, waiver, discharge or
termination with respect to this Agreement which has been approved by the
Required Banks as provided in Section 12.12(b), the Borrower shall have the
right, if no Default or Event of Default then exists or, in the case of clause
(z) above, would exist after giving effect to such replacement, to replace such
Bank (the "Replaced Bank") with one or more other Eligible Transferee or
Transferees, none of whom shall constitute a Defaulting Bank at the time of such
replacement (collectively, the "Replacement Bank") reasonably acceptable to the
Administrative Agent, PROVIDED, that (i) at the time of any replacement pursuant
to this Section 1.13, the Replacement Bank shall enter into one or more
Assignment and Assumption Agreements pursuant to Section 12.04(b) (and with all
fees payable pursuant to said Section 12.04(b) to be paid by the Replacement
Bank) pursuant to which the Replacement Bank shall acquire all of the
Commitments and outstanding Loans of, and in each case participations in Letters
of Credit by, the Replaced Bank and, in connection therewith, shall pay to (x)
the Replaced Bank in respect thereof an amount equal to the sum of (A) an amount
equal to the principal of, and all accrued interest on, all outstanding Loans of
the Replaced Bank, (B) an amount equal to all Unpaid Drawings that have been
funded by (and not reimbursed to) such Replaced Bank, together with all then
unpaid interest with respect thereto at such time and (C) an amount equal to all
accrued, but theretofore unpaid, Fees owing to the Replaced Bank pursuant to
Section 3.01, (y) the respective Letter of Credit Issuer an amount equal to such
Replaced Bank's RL Percentage of any Unpaid Drawing (which at such time remains
an Unpaid Drawing) with respect to a Letter of Credit issued by it to the extent
such amount was not theretofore funded by such Replaced Bank and (z) BTCo an
amount equal to such Replaced Bank's RL Percentage of any Mandatory Borrowing to
the extent such amount was not theretofore funded by such Replaced Bank and (ii)
all obligations (including, without limitation, all such amounts, if any, owing
under Section 1.11) of the Borrower owing to the Replaced Bank (other than those
specifically described in clause (i) above in respect of which the assignment
purchase price has been, or is concurrently being, paid) shall be paid in full
to such Replaced Bank concurrently with such replacement.  Upon the execution of
the respective Assignment and Assumption Agreements, the payment of amounts
referred to in clauses (i) and (ii) above, recordation of the assignment on the
Register by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 7.12 and, if so
requested by the Replacement Bank, delivery to the Replacement Bank of the
appropriate Note or Notes executed by the Borrower, the Replacement Bank shall
become a Bank hereunder and the Replaced Bank shall cease to constitute a Bank
hereunder, except with respect to indemnification provisions under this
Agreement, which shall survive as to such Replaced Bank.

     SECTION 2.  LETTERS OF CREDIT.

                                      -14-

     2.01  LETTERS OF CREDIT.  (a)  Subject to and upon the terms and conditions
herein set forth, the Borrower may request a Letter of Credit Issuer at any time
and from time to time after the Initial Borrowing Date and prior to the Business
Day (or the 30th day in the case of trade Letters of Credit) preceding the
Revolving Loan Maturity Date to issue, for the account of the Borrower and in
support of, (A) trade obligations of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries
that arise in the ordinary course of business and are in respect of general
corporate purposes of the Borrower or its Subsidiaries, as the case may be,
and/or (B) on a standby basis, L/C Supportable Indebtedness, and subject to and
upon the terms and conditions herein set forth each Letter of Credit Issuer
agrees to issue from time to time, irrevocable letters of credit in such form as
may be approved by such Letter of Credit Issuer (each such letter of credit, a
"Letter of Credit" and, collectively, the "Letters of Credit").  Notwithstanding
the foregoing, no Letter of Credit Issuer shall be under any obligation to issue
any Letter of Credit if at the time of such issuance:

          (i)  any order, judgment or decree of any governmental authority or
     arbitrator shall purport by its terms to enjoin or restrain such Letter of
     Credit Issuer from issuing such Letter of Credit or any requirement of law
     applicable to such Letter of Credit Issuer or any request or directive
     (whether or not having the force of law) from any governmental authority
     with jurisdiction over such Letter of Credit Issuer shall prohibit, or
     request that such Letter of Credit Issuer refrain from, the issuance of
     letters of credit generally or such Letter of Credit in particular or shall
     impose upon such Letter of Credit Issuer with respect to such Letter of
     Credit any restriction or reserve or capital requirement (for which such
     Letter of Credit Issuer is not otherwise compensated) not in effect on the
     date hereof, or any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not
     applicable, in effect or known to such Letter of Credit Issuer as of the
     date hereof and which such Letter of Credit Issuer in good faith deems
     material to it; or

          (ii)  such Letter of Credit Issuer shall have received notice from the
     Required Banks prior to the issuance of such Letter of Credit of the type
     described in clause (vi) of Section 2.01(b).

     (b)  Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) no Letter of Credit shall be 
issued the Stated Amount of which, when added to the Letter of Credit 
Outstandings (exclusive of Unpaid Drawings relating to  Letters of Credit 
which are repaid on the date of, and prior to the issuance of, the respective 
Letter of Credit) at such time, would exceed either (x) $15,000,000 or (y) 
when added to the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Loans and 
Swingline Loans then outstanding, the Total Revolving Loan Commitment at such 
time; (ii) (x) each standby Letter of Credit shall have an expiry date 
occurring not later than one year after such standby Letter of Credit's date 
of issuance, PROVIDED, that any standby Letter of Credit may be automatically 
extendable for periods of up to one year so long as such standby Letter of 
Credit provides that the respective Letter of Credit Issuer retains an 
option, satisfactory to such Letter of Credit Issuer, to terminate such 
standby Letter of Credit within a specified period of time prior to each 
scheduled extension date and (y) each trade Letter of Credit shall have an 
expiry 

                                      -15-

date occurring not later than 180 days after such trade Letter of Credit's 
date of issuance; (iii) (x) no standby Letter of Credit shall have an expiry 
date occurring later than the Business Day next preceding the Revolving Loan 
Maturity Date and (y) no trade Letter of Credit shall have an expiry date 
occurring later than 30 days prior to the Revolving Loan Maturity Date; (iv) 
each Letter of Credit shall be denominated in U.S. Dollars and be payable on 
a sight basis; (v) the Stated Amount of each Letter of Credit shall not be 
less than $100,000 or such lesser amount as is acceptable to the Letter of 
Credit Issuer; and (vi) no Letter of Credit Issuer will issue any Letter of 
Credit after it has received written notice from the Borrower or the Required 
Banks stating that a Default or an Event of Default exists until such time as 
such Letter of Credit Issuer shall have received a written notice of (i) 
rescission of such notice from the party or parties originally delivering the 
same or (ii) a waiver of such Default or Event of Default by the Required 
Banks (or all the Banks to the extent required by Section 12.12).

     (c)  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event a Bank Default exists, no
Letter of Credit Issuer shall be required to issue any Letter of Credit unless
the respective Letter of Credit Issuer has entered into arrangements
satisfactory to it and the Borrower to eliminate such Letter of Credit Issuer's
risk with respect to the participation in Letters of Credit of the Defaulting
Bank or Banks, including by cash collateralizing such Defaulting Bank's or
Banks' applicable RL Percentage of the applicable Letter of Credit Outstandings.

     2.02  LETTER OF CREDIT REQUESTS; NOTICES OF ISSUANCE.  (a)  Whenever it
desires that a Letter of Credit be issued, the Borrower shall give the
Administrative Agent and the respective Letter of Credit Issuer written notice
thereof prior to 1:00 P.M. (New York time) at least five Business Days (or such
shorter period as may be acceptable to such Letter of Credit Issuer) prior to
the proposed date of issuance (which shall be a Business Day) which written
notice shall be in the form of Exhibit A-2 (each, a "Letter of Credit Request").
Each Letter of Credit Request shall include any other documents as the
respective Letter of Credit Issuer customarily requires in connection therewith.

     (b)  (i)  In the case of standby Letters of Credit, each Letter of Credit
Issuer shall, on the date of each issuance of or amendment or modification to a
standby Letter of Credit by it, give the Administrative Agent, each RL Bank and
the Borrower written notice of the issuance of or amendment or modification to

          (ii)  As to any Letters of Credit issued by a Letter of Credit Issuer
other than BTCo, the respective Letter of Credit Issuer shall send to the
Administrative Agent, on the first Business Day of each week, by telefax, its
outstanding trade Letter of Credit daily balances for the previous week.  The
Administrative Agent shall deliver to each RL Bank by the end of each calendar
month and upon each Letter of Credit fee payment date a report setting forth for
such period the aggregate daily amount available to be drawn under trade Letters
of Credit issued by all Letter of Credit Issuers that were outstanding during

     2.03  AGREEMENT TO REPAY LETTER OF CREDIT DRAWINGS.  (a)  The Borrower
hereby agrees to reimburse each respective Letter of Credit Issuer, by making
payment to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds at the
Payment Office, for any payment or disbursement made by such Letter of Credit
Issuer under any Letter of Credit issued by it (each such amount so paid or
disbursed until reimbursed, an "Unpaid Drawing") no later than one Business Day
following the date of such payment or disbursement, with interest on the amount
so paid or disbursed by such Letter of Credit Issuer, to the extent not
reimbursed prior to 1:00 P.M. (New York time) on the date of such payment or
disbursement, from and including the date paid or disbursed to but not including
the date such Letter of Credit Issuer is reimbursed therefor at a rate per annum
which shall be the Applicable Base Rate Margin plus the Base Rate as in effect
from time to time for Revolving Loans (plus an additional 2% per annum if not
reimbursed by the third Business Day after the date of such payment or
disbursement), such interest also to be payable on demand.  Each Letter of
Credit Issuer shall provide the Borrower prompt notice of any payment or
disbursement made by it under any Letter of Credit issued by it, although the
failure of, or delay in, giving any such notice shall not release or diminish
the obligations of the Borrower under this Section 2.03(a) or under any other
Section of this Agreement.

     (b)  The Borrower's obligation under this Section 2.03 to reimburse the
respective Letter of Credit Issuer with respect to Unpaid Drawings (including,
in each case, interest thereon) shall be absolute and unconditional under any
and all circumstances and irrespective of any setoff, counterclaim or defense to
payment which the Borrower may have or have had against such Letter of Credit
Issuer, the Administrative Agent or any Bank, including, without limitation, any
defense based upon the failure of any drawing under a Letter of Credit issued by
it to substantially conform to the terms of the Letter of Credit or any non-
application or misapplication by the beneficiary of the proceeds of such
drawing; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the Borrower shall not be obligated to
reimburse such Letter of Credit Issuer for any wrongful payment made by such
Letter of Credit Issuer under a Letter of Credit issued by it as a result of
acts or omissions constituting willful misconduct or gross negligence on the
part of such Letter of Credit Issuer.

     2.04  LETTER OF CREDIT PARTICIPATIONS.  (a)  Immediately upon the issuance
by a Letter of Credit Issuer of any Letter of Credit, such Letter of Credit
Issuer shall be deemed to have sold and transferred to each other RL Bank, and
each such RL Bank (each a "Participant") shall be deemed irrevocably and
unconditionally to have purchased and received from such Letter of Credit
Issuer, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation,
to the extent of such RL Bank's RL Percentage, in such Letter of Credit, each
substitute letter of credit, each drawing made thereunder and the obligations of
the Borrower under this Agreement with respect thereto (although Letter of
Credit Fees shall be payable directly to the Administrative Agent for the
account of the RL Banks as provided in Section 3.01(b) and the Participants
shall have no right to receive any portion of any Facing Fees) and any security
therefor or guaranty pertaining thereto.  Upon any change in the Revolving Loan
Commitments of the RL Banks pursuant to Section 1.13 or 12.04(b) or otherwise,
it is hereby agreed that, with respect to all outstanding Letters of Credit and
Unpaid Drawings relating to Letters of

                                      -17-

Credit, there shall be an automatic adjustment to the participations pursuant to
this Section 2.04(a) to reflect the new RL Percentages of the assigning and
assignee Banks.

     (b)  In determining whether to pay under any Letter of Credit, the
respective Letter of Credit Issuer shall not have any obligation relative to the
Participants other than to determine that any documents required to be delivered
under such Letter of Credit have been delivered and that they appear to
substantially comply on their face with the requirements of such Letter of
Credit.  Any action taken or omitted to be taken by any Letter of Credit Issuer
under or in connection with any Letter of Credit issued by it if taken or
omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct, shall not
create for such Letter of Credit Issuer any resulting liability.

     (c)  In the event that any Letter of Credit Issuer makes any payment under
any Letter of Credit issued by it and the Borrower shall not have reimbursed
such amount in full to such Letter of Credit Issuer pursuant to Section 2.03(a),
such Letter of Credit Issuer shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent, and
the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Participant of such failure,
and each such Participant shall promptly and unconditionally pay to the
Administrative Agent for the account of such Letter of Credit Issuer, the amount
of such Participant's applicable RL Percentage of such payment in U.S. Dollars
and in same day funds; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that no Participant shall be obligated
to pay to the Administrative Agent its applicable RL Percentage of such
unreimbursed amount for any wrongful payment made by such Letter of Credit
Issuer under a Letter of Credit issued by it as a result of acts or omissions
constituting willful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of such Letter
of Credit Issuer.  If the Administrative Agent so notifies any Participant
required to fund a payment under a Letter of Credit prior to 11:00 A.M. (New
York time) on any Business Day, such Participant shall make available to the
Administrative Agent for the account of the respective Letter of Credit Issuer
such Participant's applicable RL Percentage of the amount of such payment on
such Business Day in same day funds.  If and to the extent such Participant
shall not have so made its applicable RL Percentage of the amount of such
payment available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the respective
Letter of Credit Issuer, such Participant agrees to pay to the Administrative
Agent for the account of such Letter of Credit Issuer, forthwith on demand such
amount, together with interest thereon, for each day from such date until the
date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent for the account of such
Letter of Credit Issuer at the overnight Federal Funds rate.  The failure of any
Participant to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the
respective Letter of Credit Issuer its applicable RL Percentage of any payment
under any Letter of Credit issued by it shall not relieve any other Participant
of its obligation hereunder to make available to the Administrative Agent for
the account of such Letter of Credit Issuer its applicable RL Percentage of any
payment under any such Letter of Credit on the date required, as specified
above, but no Participant shall be responsible for the failure of any other
Participant to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of
such Letter of Credit Issuer such other Participant's applicable RL Percentage
of any such payment.

                                      -18-

     (d)  Whenever any Letter of Credit Issuer receives a payment of a
reimbursement obligation as to which the Administrative Agent has received for
the account of such Letter of Credit Issuer any payments from the Participants
pursuant to clause (c) above, such Letter of Credit Issuer shall pay to the
Administrative Agent and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to each
applicable Participant which has paid its applicable RL Percentage thereof, in
U.S. Dollars and in same day funds, an amount equal to such Participant's
applicable RL Percentage of the principal amount thereof and interest thereon
accruing after the purchase of the respective participations.

     (e)  The obligations of each respective Participant to make payments to the
Administrative Agent for the account of each respective Letter of Credit Issuer
with respect to Letters of Credit issued by it which such Participant has a
participation in shall be irrevocable and not subject to counterclaim, set-off
or other defense or any other qualification or exception whatsoever and shall be
made in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement under all
circumstances, including, without limitation, any of the following
circumstances:

           (i)  any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any
     of the other Credit Documents;

          (ii)  the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right
     which the Borrower may have at any time against a beneficiary named in a
     Letter of Credit, any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or any Person for
     whom any such transferee may be acting), the Administrative Agent, any
     Letter of Credit Issuer, any Bank, any Participant or other Person, whether
     in connection with this Agreement, any Letter of Credit, the transactions
     contemplated herein (including the Transaction) or any unrelated
     transactions (including any underlying transaction between the Borrower or
     any of its Subsidiaries and the beneficiary named in any such Letter of
     Credit);

         (iii)  any draft, certificate or other document presented under the
     Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient
     in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any
     respect;

          (iv)  the surrender or impairment of any security for the performance
     or observance of any of the terms of any of the Credit Documents; or

           (v)  the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default.

     2.05  INCREASED COSTS.  If after the date hereof, the adoption or
effectiveness of any applicable law, rule or regulation, or any change therein,
or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any
governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the
interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Letter of Credit
Issuer or any Participant with any request or directive (whether or not having
the force of law) by any such authority, central bank or comparable agency shall
either (i) impose, modify or make applicable any reserve, deposit, capital
adequacy or similar requirement against Letters

                                      -19-

of Credit issued by such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Participant's
participation therein, or (ii) impose on any Letter of Credit Issuer or any
Participant any other conditions affecting this Agreement, any Letter of Credit
or such Participant's participation therein; and the result of any of the
foregoing is to increase the cost to such Letter of Credit Issuer or such
Participant of issuing, maintaining or participating in any Letter of Credit, or
to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Letter of Credit
Issuer or such Participant hereunder, then, upon written demand to the Borrower
by such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Participant (a copy of which notice
shall be sent by such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Participant to the
Administrative Agent), accompanied by the certificate described in the last
sentence of this Section 2.05, the Borrower shall pay to such Letter of Credit
Issuer or such Participant such additional amount or amounts as will compensate
such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Participant for such increased cost or
reduction.  A certificate submitted to the Borrower by such Letter of Credit
Issuer or such Participant, as the case may be (a copy of which certificate
shall be sent by such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Participant to the
Administrative Agent), setting forth the basis for the determination of such
additional amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Letter of Credit
Issuer or such Participant as aforesaid shall be final and conclusive and
binding on the Borrower absent manifest error, although the failure to deliver
any such certificate shall not release or diminish the Borrower's obligations to
pay additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.05 upon subsequent receipt of
such certificate.

     SECTION 3.  FEES; COMMITMENTS.

     3.01  FEES.  (a)  The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for
distribution to each Bank a commitment fee (the "Commitment Fee") for the period
from the Effective Date to and including the date the Total Commitment has been
terminated, computed at a per annum rate equal to the Applicable Commitment Fee
Percentage on the daily Aggregate Unutilized Commitment of such Bank.  Accrued
Commitment Fees shall be due and payable in arrears on the Initial Borrowing
Date and thereafter, in arrears on each Quarterly Payment Date and the date upon
which the Total Commitment is terminated.

     (b)  The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of
the RL Banks PRO RATA on the basis of their RL Percentages, a fee in respect of
each Letter of Credit (the "Letter of Credit Fee") computed at a rate per annum
equal to the Applicable Eurodollar Margin then in effect with respect to
Revolving Loans on the daily Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit.  Accrued
Letter of Credit Fees shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on each
Quarterly Payment Date and upon the first day after the termination of the Total
Revolving Loan Commitment upon which no Letters of Credit remain outstanding.

     (c)  The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of
the respective Letter of Credit Issuer a fee in respect of each Letter of Credit
issued by such Letter of Credit Issuer (the "Facing Fee") computed at the rate
of 1/4 of 1% per annum on the daily Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit;
PROVIDED, that in no event shall the annual Facing Fee with respect to each
Letter of Credit be less than $500; it being agreed that, on the date of
issuance of any Letter of Credit and on each anniversary thereof prior to the
termination of such

                                      -20-

Letter of Credit, if $500 will exceed the amount of Facing Fees that will accrue
with respect to such Letter of Credit for the immediately succeeding 12-month
period, the full $500 shall be payable on the date of issuance of such Letter of
Credit and on each such anniversary thereof prior to the termination of such
Letter of Credit.  Except as provided in the immediately preceding sentence,
accrued Facing Fees shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on each
Quarterly Payment Date and upon the first day after the termination of the Total
Revolving Loan Commitment upon which no Letters of Credit remain outstanding.

     (d)  The Borrower hereby agrees to pay directly to the respective Letter of
Credit Issuer upon each issuance of, payment under, and/or amendment of, a
Letter of Credit issued by it such amount as shall at the time of such issuance,
payment or amendment be the administrative charge which such Letter of Credit
Issuer is customarily charging for issuances of, payments under or amendments
of, letters of credit issued by it.

     (e)  The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent, the Documentation
Agent and each Syndication Agent, for their own account, such fees as may be
agreed to from time to time between the Borrower and the Administrative Agent,
the Documentation Agent or the Syndication Agents, when and as due.

12.07(b).

     3.02  VOLUNTARY TERMINATION OR REDUCTION OF COMMITMENTS.  (a)  Upon at
least two Business Days' prior written notice (or telephonic notice promptly
confirmed in writing) to the Administrative Agent at its Notice Office (which
notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit to each of the Banks),
the Borrower shall have the right, without premium or penalty, to terminate or
partially reduce the Total Unutilized Revolving Loan Commitment; PROVIDED, that
(x) any such termination or partial reduction shall apply to proportionately and
permanently reduce the Revolving Loan Commitment of each of the RL Banks and (y)
any partial reduction pursuant to this Section 3.02 shall be in the amount of at
least $1,000,000.

     (b)  In the event of certain refusals by a Bank to consent to certain
proposed changes, waivers, discharges or terminations with respect to this
Agreement which have been approved by the Required Banks as provided in Section
12.12(b), the Borrower shall have the right, upon five Business Days' prior
written notice to the Administrative Agent at its Notice Office (which notice
the Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit to each of the Banks), to
terminate the entire Revolving Loan Commitment of such Bank, so long as all
Loans, together with accrued and unpaid interest, Fees and all other amounts,
owing to such Bank are repaid concurrently with the effectiveness of such
termination pursuant to Section 4.01(b), and the Borrower shall pay to the
Administrative Agent at such time an amount in cash and/or Cash Equivalents
equal to such Bank's applicable RL Percentages of the outstanding Letters of
Credit which it has a participation in (which cash and/or Cash Equivalents shall
be held by the Administrative Agent as security for the obligations of the
Borrower hereunder in respect of such outstanding Letters of Credit pursuant to
a cash collateral agreement to be entered into in form and substance reasonably
satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, which shall permit certain investments
in

                                      -21-

Cash Equivalents reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent until the
proceeds are applied to the secured obligations) (at which time Annex I shall be
deemed modified to reflect such changed amounts), and at such time, such Bank
shall no longer constitute a "Bank" for purposes of this Agreement, except with
respect to indemnifications under this Agreement (including, without limitation,
Sections 1.10, 1.11, 2.05, 4.04, 12.01 and 12.06), which shall survive as to
such repaid Bank.

     3.03  MANDATORY ADJUSTMENTS OF COMMITMENTS, ETC.  (a)  The Total Commitment
(and the A Term Loan Commitment, B Term Loan Commitment, C Term Loan Commitment,
D Term Loan Commitment and Revolving Loan Commitment of each Bank) shall

or before such date.

     (b)  Each of the Total A Term Loan Commitment, the Total B Term Loan
Commitment, the Total C Term Loan Commitment and the Total D Term Loan
Commitment shall terminate on the Initial Borrowing Date, after giving effect to
the making of the Term Loans on such date.

     (c)  The Total Revolving Loan Commitment (and the Revolving Loan Commitment
of each Bank) shall terminate on the earlier of (i) the date on which a Change
of Control Event occurs and (ii) the Revolving Loan Maturity Date.

     (d)  In addition to any other mandatory commitment reductions pursuant to
this Section 3.03, on each date upon which a mandatory repayment of Term Loans
pursuant to Section 4.02(A)(c), (d), (e), (f), (g) and (h) is required (and
exceeds in amount the aggregate principal amount of Term Loans then outstanding)
or would be required if Term Loans were then outstanding, the Total Revolving
Loan Commitment shall be permanently reduced by the amount, if any, by which the
amount required to be applied pursuant to said Sections (determined as if an
unlimited amount of Term Loans were actually outstanding) exceeds the aggregate
principal amount of Term Loans then outstanding.

     (e)  Each reduction or adjustment of the Total A Term Loan Commitment, the
Total B Term Loan Commitment, the Total C Term Loan Commitment, the Total D Term
Loan Commitment or the Total Revolving Loan Commitment pursuant to this
Section 3.03 shall apply proportionately to the A Term Loan Commitment, the B

Commitment or the Revolving Loan Commitment, as the case may be, of each Bank.

     SECTION 4.  PAYMENTS.

when the aggregate amount of Revolving Loans of any Non-Defaulting Bank exceeds
such Non-Defaulting Bank's RL Percentage of all Revolving Loans then
outstanding; (v) each prepayment of Term Loans pursuant to this Section 4.01(a)
must consist of a prepayment of A Term Loans (in an amount equal to the A TL
Percentage of such prepayment), B Term Loans (in an amount equal to the B TL
Percentage of such prepayment), C Term Loans (in an amount equal to the C TL
Percentage of such prepayment) and D Term Loans (in an amount equal to the D TL

this Section 4.01(a) shall be applied (x) first, to reduce the next two
Scheduled A Repayments to occur after the date of such prepayment in direct
order of maturity and (y) thereafter, to reduce the then remaining Scheduled A
Repayments on a PRO RATA basis (based upon the then remaining principal amount
of each such Scheduled A Repayment); (vii) each prepayment of B Term Loans
pursuant to this Section 4.01(a) shall be applied (x) first, to reduce the next

                                      -23-

     (b)  In the event of certain refusals by a Bank to consent to certain 
proposed changes, waivers, discharges or terminations with respect to this 
Agreement which have been approved by the Required Banks as provided in

which time Annex I shall be deemed modified to reflect the changed Revolving

Loans shall be applied, if required pursuant to Section 4.02(A)(c),(d),(e),(f),
(g) or (h), to reduce the then remaining Scheduled Repayments of the respective
Facility PRO RATA based on the then remaining Scheduled Repayments of the 
respective Facility. 

     (b)  With respect to each repayment of Loans required by this Section 4.02,
the Borrower may designate the Types of Loans which are to be repaid and the 
specific Borrowing(s) under the affected Facility pursuant to which made; 
PROVIDED, that (i) Eurodollar Loans made pursuant to a specific Facility may be
designated for repayment pursuant to this Section 4.02 only on the last day of 
an Interest Period applicable thereto unless all Eurodollar Loans made pursuant
to such Facility with Interest Periods ending on such date of required 
prepayment and all Base Rate Loans made pursuant to such Facility have been paid
in full; (ii) if any repayment of Eurodollar Loans made pursuant to a single 
Borrowing shall reduce the outstanding Loans made pursuant to such Borrowing to
an amount less than the Minimum Borrowing Amount, such Borrowing shall be 
immediately converted into Base Rate Loans; and (iii) each repayment of any 
Loans made pursuant to a Borrowing shall be applied PRO RATA among such Loans; 
PROVIDED, that no repayment pursuant to Section 4.02(A) (a) shall be applied
to any Revolving Loans of a Defaulting Bank at any time when the aggregate 
amount of the Revolving Loans of any Non-Defaulting Bank exceeds such 
Non-Defaulting Bank's RL Percentage of Revolving Loans then outstanding. In the
absence of a designation by the Borrower as described in the preceding 
sentence, the Administrative Agent shall, subject to the above, make such 
designation in its sole discretion with a view, but no obligation, to minimize 
breakage costs owing under Section 1.11. Notwithstanding the foregoing 
provisions of this Section 4.02(B)(b), if at any time the mandatory prepayment 
of Loans pursuant to Section 4.02(A)(c), (d), (e), (g) or (h) would result, 
after giving effect to the procedures set forth above in this clause (b), in 
the Borrower incurring breakage costs under Section 1.11 as a result of 
Eurodollar Loans being repaid  other than on the last day of an Interest Period
applicable thereto (the "Affected Eurodollar Loans"), then the Borrower may in 
its sole discretion initially deposit a portion (up to 100%) of the amounts that
otherwise would have been paid in respect of the Affected Eurodollar Loans with
the Administrative Agent to be held as security for the obligations of the 
Borrower hereunder pursuant to a cash collateral agreement to be entered into in
form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, with such cash 
collateral to be released from such cash collateral account upon the first 
occurrence (or occurrences) thereafter of the last day of an Interest Period 
applicable to the relevant Loans that are Eurodollar Loans (or such earlier date
or dates as shall be requested by the Borrower), to repay an aggregate 

                                    -32-

principal amount of such Loans equal to the Affected Eurodollar Loans not 
initially repaid pursuant to  this sentence.

     (C)  WAIVER OF CERTAIN MANDATORY
          REPAYMENTS BY B, C AND D BANKS:

     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 4.02 or
elsewhere in this Agreement (including, without limitation, in Section 12.12), 
the Borrower shall have the option, in its sole discretion, to give the Banks 
with outstanding B Terms Loans (the "B Banks"), C Term Loans (the "C Banks") 
and D Term Loans (the "D Banks") the option to (i) waive the voluntary repayment
application requirements of such Loans pursuant to Section 4.01(a)(vii), (viii) 
or (ix) (each such repayment, a "Waivable Voluntary Repayment") or (ii) waive 
a mandatory repayment of such Loans pursuant to Section 4.02(A)(c), (d), (e), 
(f), (g) and/or (h) (each such repayment, a "Waivable Mandatory Repayment"), in
each case, upon the terms and provisions set forth in this Section 4.02(C).  If
the Borrower elects to exercise either option referred to in the preceding 
sentence, the Borrower shall give to the Administrative Agent written notice of 
its intention to give the B Banks, the C Banks and the D Banks the right to 
waive a Waivable Mandatory Repayment and/or Waivable Voluntary Repayment, as 
the case may be, at least five Business Days prior to such repayment, which 
notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly forward to all B Banks, C Banks 
and D Banks (indicating in such notice the amount of such repayment to be 
applied to each such Bank's outstanding Term Loans under such Facilities).  The
Borrower's offer to permit such Banks to waive any such Waivable Mandatory 
Repayment and/or Waivable Voluntary Repayment, as the case may be, may apply to
all or part of such repayment, PROVIDED, that any offer to waive part of such 
repayment must be made ratably to such Banks on the basis of their outstanding 
B Term Loans, C Term Loans and D Term Loans.  In the event any such B Bank, 
C Bank or D Bank desires to waive such Bank's right to receive any such Waivable
Mandatory Repayment and/or Waivable Voluntary Repayment, as the case may be, in
whole or in part, such Bank shall so advise the Administrative Agent no later 
than the close of business two Business Days after the date of such notice from
the Administrative Agent, which notice shall also include the amount such Bank 
desires to receive in respect of such repayment.  If any Bank does not reply to 
the Administrative Agent within the two Business Days, it will be deemed not to
have waived any part of such repayment.  If any Bank does not specify an amount
it wishes to receive, it will be deemed to have accepted 100% of the total 
payment.  In the event that any such Bank waives all or part of such right to 
receive any such Waivable Mandatory Repayment, and/or Waivable Voluntary 
Repayment, as the case may be, the Administrative Agent shall apply 100% of the
amount so waived by such Bank to the A Term Loans in accordance with 
Section 4.02(B).

     4.03  METHOD AND PLACE OF PAYMENT.  Except as otherwise specifically 
provided herein, all payments under this Agreement shall be made to the 
Administrative Agent for the ratable account of the Banks entitled thereto, not
later than 12:00 Noon (New York time) on the date when due and shall be made in
immediately available funds and in U.S. Dollars at the Payment Office, it being
understood that written, telex or facsimile transmission notice by the Borrower
to the Administrative Agent to make a payment from the funds in the Borrower's 
account at the 

                                    -33-

Payment Office shall constitute the making of such payment to the extent of 
such funds held in such account.  Any payments under this Agreement which are 
made later than 12:00 Noon (New York time) shall be deemed to have been made on
the next succeeding Business Day.  Whenever any payment to be made hereunder 
shall be stated to be due on a day which is not a Business Day, the due date 
thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and, with respect
to payments of principal, interest shall be payable during such extension at 
the applicable rate in effect immediately prior to such extension.

     4.04  NET PAYMENTS.  (a)  All payments made by the Borrower hereunder or 
under any Note will be made without setoff, counterclaim or other defense.  
Except as provided in Section 4.04(b), all such payments will be made free and
clear of, and without deduction or withholding for, any present or future taxes,
levies, imposts, duties, fees, assessments or other charges of whatever nature 
now or hereafter imposed by any jurisdiction or by any political subdivision or
taxing authority thereof or therein with respect to such payments (but 
excluding, except as provided in the second succeeding sentence, any tax imposed
on or measured by the net income or net profits of a Bank pursuant to the laws 
of the jurisdiction in which it is organized or the jurisdiction in which the 
principal office or applicable lending office of such Bank is located or any
subdivision thereof or therein) and all interest, penalties or similar 
liabilities with respect to such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, duties, 
fees, assessments or other charges (all such non-excluded taxes, levies, 
imposts, duties, fees, assessments or other charges being referred to 
collectively as "Taxes").  If any Taxes are so levied or imposed, the Borrower 
agrees to pay the full amount of such Taxes, and such additional amounts as may
be necessary so that every payment of all amounts due under this Agreement or 
under any Note, after withholding or deduction for or on account of any Taxes, 
will not be less than the amount provided for herein or in such Note.  If any 
amounts are payable in respect of Taxes pursuant to the preceding sentence, 
the Borrower agrees to reimburse each Bank, upon the written request of such 
Bank, for taxes imposed on or measured by the net income or net profits of 
such Bank pursuant to the laws of the jurisdiction in which such Bank is 
organized or in which the principal office or applicable lending office of such
Bank is located or under the laws of any political subdivision or taxing 
authority of any such jurisdiction in which such Bank is organized or in which
the principal office or applicable lending office of such Bank is located and 
for any withholding of taxes as such Bank shall determine are payable by, or 
withheld from, such Bank, in respect of such amounts so paid to or on behalf of
such Bank pursuant to the preceding sentence and in respect of any amounts paid
to or on behalf of such Bank pursuant to this sentence.  The Borrower will 
furnish to the Administrative Agent within 45 days after the date the payment 
of any Taxes is due pursuant to applicable law certified copies of tax receipts
evidencing such payment by the Borrower.  The Borrower agrees to indemnify and 
hold harmless each Bank, and reimburse such Bank upon its written request, for 
the amount of any Taxes so levied or imposed and paid by such Bank.

     (b)  Each Bank that is not a United States person (as such term is defined 
in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code) for U.S. Federal income tax purposes agrees 
to deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the 
Effective Date, or in the case of a Bank that is an assignee or transferee of an
interest under this Agreement pursuant to Section 

                                    -34-

1.13 or 12.04(b) (unless the respective Bank was already a Bank hereunder 
immediately prior to such  assignment or transfer), on the date of such 
assignment or transfer to such  Bank, (i) two accurate and complete original 
signed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form 4224 or 1001 (or successor forms)
certifying to such Bank's  entitlement to a complete exemption from United 
States withholding tax with  respect to payments to be made under this Agreement
and under any Note, or (ii) if the Bank is not a "bank" within the meaning of 
Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code and cannot deliver either Internal 
Revenue Service Form 1001 or 4224 pursuant to clause (i) above, (x) a 
certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit C (any such certificate, a 
"Section 4.04(b)(ii) Certificate") and (y) two accurate and complete original 
signed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 (or successor form) 
certifying to such Bank's entitlement to a complete exemption from United States
withholding tax with respect to payments of interest (including any original 
issue discount) to be made under this Agreement and under any Note. Each Bank 
that is a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) 
of the Code) and is a party hereto on the Initial Borrowing Date (and each Bank
that is a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) 
of the Code) and becomes a party hereto after the Initial Borrowing Date), in 
each case, that is not a corporation (as such term is defined in 
Section 7701(a)(3) of the Code) agrees to deliver to the Borrower and the 
Administrative Agent on or prior to the first interest payment date on the Loans
(or in the case of an assignee or transferee Bank, promptly after becoming a 
party hereto) two accurate and complete original signed copies of Internal 
Revenue Service Form W-9 (or a substitute form) certifying to such Bank's 
entitlement to a complete exemption from United States withholding tax with
respect to payments to be made under this Agreement and under any Note. In 
addition, each Bank agrees that from time to time after the Effective Date, when
a lapse in time or change in circumstances renders the previous certification 
obsolete or inaccurate in any material respect or otherwise renders the previous
certification ineffective in establishing such Bank's complete exemption from 
United States withholding tax, such Bank will deliver to the Borrower and the 
Administrative Agent two new accurate and complete original signed copies of 
Internal Revenue Service Form 4224 or 1001, or Form W-8 and a 
Section 4.04(b)(ii) Certificate, as the case may be, and such other forms as may
be required in order to confirm or establish the entitlement of such Bank to a 
continued exemption from or reduction in United States withholding tax with 
respect to payments under this Agreement and any Note, or it shall immediately 
notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent of its inability to deliver 
any such Form or Certificate, in which case such Bank shall not be required to 
deliver any such Form or Certificate pursuant to this Section 4.04(b). 
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 4.04(a), but 
subject to Section 12.04(b) and the immediately succeeding sentence, (x) the 
Borrower shall be entitled, to the extent it is required to do so by law, to 
deduct or withhold income or similar taxes imposed by the United States (or any
political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein) from interest 
(including any original issue discount), Fees or other amounts payable hereunder
for the account of any Bank which is not a United States person (as such term is
defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code) for U.S. Federal income tax purposes
and any Bank which is a United States person (as such term is defined in Section
7701(a)(30) of the Code) that is not a corporation as such term is defined in 
Section 7701(a)(3) of the Code, to the extent that such Bank has not provided 
to the Borrower U.S. Internal Revenue Service Forms that establish (to the 
reasonable satisfaction of the

                                    -35-

Borrower) a complete exemption from such deduction or withholding and (y) the 
Borrower shall not be obligated pursuant to Section 4.04(a) hereof to 
gross-up payments to be made to a Bank in respect of income or similar taxes 
imposed by the United States if (I) such Bank has not provided to the 
Borrower the Internal Revenue Service Forms required to be provided to the 
Borrower pursuant to this Section 4.04(b) or (II) in the case of a payment, 
other than interest, to a Bank described in clause (ii) above, to the extent 
that such Forms do not establish a complete exemption from withholding of 
such taxes.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the 
preceding sentence or elsewhere in this Section 4.04 and except as set forth 
in Section 12.04(b), the Borrower agrees to pay any additional amounts and to 
indemnify each Bank in the manner set forth in Section 4.04(a) (without 
regard to the identity of the jurisdiction requiring the deduction or 
withholding) in respect of any Taxes deducted or withheld by it as described 
in the immediately preceding sentence as a result of any changes after the 
Effective Date in any applicable law, treaty, governmental rule, regulation, 
guideline or order, or in the interpretation thereof, relating to the 
deducting or withholding of such Taxes.

     (c)    If the Borrower pays any additional amount under this Section 
4.04 to a Bank and such Bank determines in its sole discretion that it has 
actually received or realized in connection therewith any refund or any 
reduction of, or credit against, its Tax liabilities in or with respect to 
the taxable year in which the additional amount is paid, such Bank shall pay 
to the Borrower an amount that such Bank shall, in its sole discretion, 
determine is equal to the net benefit, after tax, which was obtained by such 
Bank in such year as a consequence of such refund, reduction or credit.

     SECTION 5.  CONDITIONS PRECEDENT.  The obligation of each Bank to make 
each Loan to the Borrower hereunder, and the obligation of any Letter of

deed of trust, loan agreement, credit agreement or any other material 
agreement or instrument to which Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries is a 
party (except agreements breached as a result of the IMED Merger, which

material adverse effect on the rights or remedies of the Banks

required in connection with (i) the execution, delivery and performance of 
any Document or (ii) the legality, validity, binding effect or enforceability

     (c)  The audited consolidated balance sheet of IVAC Holdings for the 
fiscal year ended December 31, 1995, and the unaudited consolidated balance 
sheet of IVAC Holdings at September 30, 1996, and the related consolidated

or nine-month period, as the case may be, ended as of said dates, which 
annual financial statements have been examined by Price Waterhouse LLP, 
certified public accountants, who delivered an unqualified opinion with 
respect thereto and copies of which have heretofore been delivered to each 
Bank, present fairly in all material 

                                     -49-

respects the financial position of IVAC Holdings and its Subsidiaries on a 
consolidated basis at the date of said statements and the results for the 
periods covered thereby.  All such financial statements have been prepared in 
accordance with GAAP consistently applied except to the extent provided in 
the notes to said financial statements and subject, in the case of the 
September 30, 1996 statements, to normal year-end audit adjustments and the 
absence of footnotes.

     (d)  The audited consolidated balance sheet of IVAC Holdings (excluding 
River Medical) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 1995, and the related 
consolidated statements of operations and cash flows of IVAC Holdings 
(excluding River Medical) for the fiscal year ended as of said date, which 
annual financial statements have been examined by Price Waterhouse LLP, 
certified public accountants, who delivered an unqualified opinion with 
respect thereto and copies of which have heretofore been delivered to each 
Bank pursuant to Section 5.21 of this Agreement, present fairly in all 
material respects the financial position of IVAC Holdings and its 
Subsidiaries (excluding River Medical) on a consolidated basis at the date of 
said statements and the results for the period covered thereby.  All such 
financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP consistently 
applied except to the extent provided in the notes to said financial

     (e)  Since December 31, 1995, nothing has occurred that has had or could

     (f)  Except as fully reflected in the financial statements described in 
Sections 6.10(b) and (c) and the Indebtedness incurred under this Agreement 
and the Senior Subordinated Notes, there were as of the Initial Borrowing 
Date (and after giving effect to any Loans made on such date), no liabilities 
or obligations (excluding current obligations incurred in the ordinary course 
of business) with respect to Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries of any 
nature whatsoever (whether absolute, accrued, contingent or otherwise and 
whether or not due), and neither Holdings nor the Borrower know of any basis 
for the assertion against Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries of any such 
liability or obligation which, either individually or in the aggregate, are 
or would be reasonably likely to have, a Material Adverse Effect.

     (g)  The Projections are based on good faith estimates and assumptions 
made by the management of the Borrower, and on the Initial Borrowing Date 
such management believed that the Projections were reasonable and attainable, 
it being recognized by the Banks, however, that projections as to future 
events are not to be viewed as facts and that the actual results during the 
period or periods covered by the Projections may differ from the projected 
results and that the differences may be material.  There is no fact known to 
Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries which would have a Material Adverse 
Effect, which has not been disclosed herein or in such other documents, 
certificates and statements furnished to the Banks for use in connection with 
the transactions contemplated hereby.

     6.11  SECURITY INTERESTS.  On and after the Initial Borrowing Date, each 
of the Security Documents creates (or after the execution and delivery 
thereof will create), as security for the 

                                     -50-

Obligations, a valid and enforceable perfected security interest in and Lien 
on all of the Collateral subject thereto, superior to and prior to the rights 
of all third Persons and subject to no other Liens (except that the Security 
Agreement Collateral, the Mortgaged Properties and the collateral covered by 
the Additional Security Documents may be subject to Permitted Liens relating 
thereto), in favor of the Collateral Agent.  No filings or recordings are 
required in order to perfect the security interests created under any 
Security Document except for filings or recordings required in connection 
with any such Security Document which shall have been made as contemplated by 
Section 5.11 or on or prior to the execution and delivery thereof as 
contemplated by Sections 7.11, 7.14 and 8.17.

    6.12  REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES IN OTHER DOCUMENTS.  All 
representations and warranties set forth in the other Documents were true and 
correct in all material respects as of the time such representations and 
warranties were made and shall be true and correct in all material respects 
as of the Initial Borrowing Date as if such representations and warranties 
were made on and as of such date, unless stated to relate to a specific 
earlier date, in which case such representations and warranties shall be true 
and correct in all material respects as of such earlier date.

    6.13  TRANSACTION.  At the time of consummation thereof, the Transaction 
shall have been consummated in accordance with the terms of the respective 
Documents and all applicable laws.  At the time of consummation thereof, all 
consents and approvals of, and filings and registrations with, and all other 
actions in respect of, all governmental agencies, authorities or 
instrumentalities required in order to make or consummate the Transaction 
have been obtained, given, filed or taken or waived and are or will be in 
full force and effect (or effective judicial relief with respect thereto has 
been obtained) except where the failure to obtain, give, file, or take would 
not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. All applicable 
waiting periods with respect thereto have or, prior to the time when 
required, will have, expired without, in all such cases, any action being 
taken by any competent authority which restrains, prevents, or imposes 
material adverse conditions upon the Transaction. Additionally, there does 
not exist any judgment, order or injunction prohibiting or imposing material 
adverse conditions upon the Transaction, or the performance by Holdings and 
its Subsidiaries of their obligations under the Documents and all applicable 
laws.  Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 6.13, in 
accordance with customary government practices certain government contracts 
which are being transferred as part of the Transaction will be novated after 
the Initial Borrowing Date.

business of Holdings and each of its Subsidiaries as presently conducted.

    6.19  COMPLIANCE WITH STATUTES, ETC.  Holdings and each of its 
Subsidiaries is in compliance with all applicable statutes, regulations and

Environmental Laws with respect to any Real Property or governing its 
business and the requirements of any permits issued under such Environmental

Subsidiaries has complied with, and on the date of each Credit Event are in

conditions or occurrences regarding Holdings or its Subsidiaries, their 
operations or any Real Property at any time owned or operated by Holdings or

    (c)  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 6.20, the 
representations made in this Section 6.20 shall only be untrue if the 
aggregate effect of all conditions, failures, noncompliances, Environmental 
Claims, Releases and presence of underground storage tanks, in each case of 
the types described above, would reasonably be expected to have a Material 
Adverse Effect.

agreement or waiver or been requested to enter into an agreement or waiver 
extending any statute of limitations relating to the payment or collection of

              (iii)  any condition or occurrence on any Real Property owned or

amounts, covering such risks and liabilities and with such deductibles or 
self-insured retentions as are in accordance with normal industry practice.  
At any time that insurance at the levels described in Annex VII is not being 
maintained by Holdings and its Subsidiaries, Holdings will notify the Banks 
in writing thereof and, if thereafter notified by the Administrative Agent to 
do so (it being understood and agreed that in determining whether to give any 
such notice the Administrative Agent will take into account applicable 
premium levels at such time), Holdings will obtain insurance at such levels 
to the extent then generally available (but in any event within the 
deductible or self-insured retention limitations set forth in the preceding 
sentence) or otherwise as are reasonably acceptable to the Administrative 
Agent.  Holdings will furnish to the Administrative Agent on the Initial

Subsidiaries to do, or cause to be done, all things necessary to preserve and 
keep in full force and effect its existence and its material rights,

of its Subsidiaries to, comply with all applicable statutes, regulations and 
orders of, and all applicable restrictions imposed by, all governmental 
bodies, domestic or foreign, in respect of the conduct of its business and 
the ownership of its property (including applicable statutes, regulations, 
orders and restrictions relating to environmental standards and controls)

cause each of its Subsidiaries to pay, all costs and expenses incurred in 
keeping in material compliance with all Environmental Laws, and will keep or 
cause to be kept all Real Properties owned or operated by Holdings or any of 
its Subsidiaries free and clear of any Liens imposed pursuant to such 
Environmental Laws; and neither Holdings nor any of its Subsidiaries will 
generate, use, treat, store, release or dispose of, or permit the generation, 
use, treatment, storage, release or disposal of, Hazardous Materials on any 
Real Property owned or operated by Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries, or 
transport or permit the transportation of Hazardous Materials to or from any 
such Real Property, except in amounts necessary for the operation of the 
business, in compliance with all applicable Environmental Laws and so as not 
to give rise to an Environmental Claim.

    (b)  If Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries, or any tenant or occupant of 
any Real Property owned or operated by Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries, 
cause or permit any intentional or unintentional act or omission resulting in 
the Release or threatened Release of any Hazardous Material, each of Holdings 
and the Borrower agrees to undertake, and/or to cause any of its

joint ventures, prepared by an environmental consulting firm reasonably 
approved by the Agents, indicating the presence or absence of Hazardous 
Materials and the potential cost of any removal or remedial action in 
connection with such Hazardous Materials on such Real Property, PROVIDED that 
unless a Default or Event of Default exists at such time, such request may 
only be made if the Agents or Required Banks have a reasonable basis for 
requesting same.  If the Borrower fails to provide the same within 90 days 
after such request was made, the Agents may order the same, the cost of which 
shall be borne by the Borrower, and the Borrower shall grant and hereby 
grants to the Agents and the Banks and their agents access to such Real 
Property and specifically grants the Agents and the Banks an irrevocable 
non-exclusive license, subject to the rights of tenants, to undertake such an 
assessment at any reasonable time upon reasonable notice to the Borrower, all 
at the sole and reasonable expense of the Borrower.

and properties of Holdings and such Subsidiaries as are not covered by the 
original Security Documents and as may be requested from time to time by the 
Administrative Agent or the Required Banks (collectively, the "Additional 
Security Documents") provided that neither Holdings nor any such Subsidiary 
shall be required to grant any security interest or mortgage in any asset

related documents as may be reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent 
to assure themselves that this Section 7.11 has been complied with.

    (c)  If the Collateral Agent or the Required Banks determine that they 
are required by law or regulation to have appraisals prepared in respect of 
the Real Property of Holdings and its Subsidiaries (other than Fidata and 
River Medical) constituting Collateral, the Borrower shall provide to the 
Administrative Agent appraisals which satisfy the applicable requirements of

in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

    (d)  Holdings and the Borrower agree that each action required above by

Administrative Agent or the Required Banks or required to be taken by 
Holdings and its Subsidiaries pursuant to the terms of this Section 7.11; 
PROVIDED, that in no event shall Holdings or the Borrower be required to take 
any action, other than using its reasonable efforts, to obtain consents from

    7.12  REGISTRY.  The Borrower hereby designates the Administrative Agent 
to serve as the Borrower's agent, solely for purposes of this Section 7.12, 
to maintain a register (the "Register") on which it will record the 
Commitments from time to time of each of the Banks, the Loans made by each of 
the Banks and each repayment in respect of the principal amount of the Loans 
of each Bank. Failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such 
recordation  shall not affect the Borrower's obligations in respect of such 
Loans.  With respect to any Bank, the transfer of the Commitments of such 
Bank and the rights to the principal of, and interest on, any Loan made 
pursuant to such Commitments shall not be effective until such transfer is 
recorded on the Register maintained by the Administrative Agent with respect 
to ownership of such Commitments and Loans and prior to such recordation all 
amounts owing to the transferor with respect to such Commitments and Loans 
shall remain owing to the transferor. The registration of assignment or 
transfer of all or part of any Commitments and Loans shall be recorded by the 
Administrative Agent on the Register only upon the acceptance by the 
Administrative Agent of a properly executed and delivered Assignment and 
Assumption Agreement pursuant to Section 12.04(b).  Coincident with the 
delivery of such an Assignment and Assumption Agreement to the Administrative 
Agent for acceptance and registration of assignment or transfer of all or 
part of a Loan, or as soon thereafter as practicable, the

                                     -64-

assigning or transferor Bank shall surrender the Note evidencing such Loan, 
and thereupon one or more new Notes in the same aggregate principal amount 
shall be issued to the assigning or transferor Bank and/or the new Bank.  The 
Borrower agrees to indemnify the Administrative Agent from and against any 
and all losses, claims, damages and liabilities of whatsoever nature which 
may be imposed on, asserted against or incurred by the Administrative Agent 
in performing its duties under this Section 7.12.

    7.13  CONTRIBUTIONS; PAYMENTS.  (a)  Holdings will contribute as an 
equity contribution to the capital of the Borrower upon its receipt thereof, 
any net cash proceeds received by Holdings after the Initial Borrowing Date 
from any sale or issuance of its equity or any cash capital contributions 
received by Holdings after the Initial Borrowing Date (other than the net 
proceeds received from any cash capital contributions from Picower and/or any 
of his Affiliates or the sale or issuance of any Holdings Common Stock to the 
extent that (i) such net proceeds are not required to be applied to prepay 
the Loans pursuant to clause (z) of Section 4.02(A)(d) and (ii) such net 
proceeds are applied to redeem, repurchase or prepay the 7-1/4% Debentures 
pursuant to Section 8.15(i)).

    (b)  the Borrower will use the proceeds of all equity contributions 
received by it from Holdings as provided in clause (a) above toward the 
repayment of Term Loans to the extent required by Section 4.02.

    7.14  FOREIGN SUBSIDIARIES SECURITY.  If following a change in the 
relevant sections of the Code or the regulations, rules, rulings, notices or 
other official pronouncements issued or promulgated thereunder, counsel for 
the Borrower acceptable to the Administrative Agent and the Required Banks 
does not within 30 days after a request from the Administrative Agent or the 
Required Banks deliver evidence, in form and substance mutually satisfactory 
to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, with respect to any Foreign 
Subsidiary which has not already had all of its stock pledged pursuant to the 
Pledge Agreement that (i) a pledge (x) of 66-2/3% or more of the total 
combined voting power of all classes of capital stock of such Foreign 
Subsidiary entitled to vote, and (y) of any promissory note issued by such 
Foreign Subsidiary to Holdings or any of its Domestic Subsidiaries, (ii) the 
entering into by such Foreign Subsidiary of a security agreement in 
substantially the form of the Security Agreement and (iii) the entering into 
by such Foreign Subsidiary of a guaranty in substantially the form of the 
Subsidiary Guaranty, in any such case would cause the undistributed earnings 
of such Foreign Subsidiary as determined for Federal income tax purposes to 
be treated as a deemed dividend to such Foreign Subsidiary's United States 
parent for Federal income tax purposes, then in the case of a failure to 
deliver the evidence described in clause (i) above, that portion of such 
Foreign Subsidiary's outstanding capital stock or any promissory notes so 
issued by such Foreign Subsidiary, in each case not theretofore pledged 
pursuant to the Pledge Agreement shall be pledged to the Collateral Agent for 
the benefit of the Secured Creditors pursuant to the Pledge Agreement (or 
another pledge agreement in substantially similar form, if needed), and in 
the case of a failure to deliver the evidence described in clause (ii) above, 
such Foreign Subsidiary shall execute and deliver the Security Agreement (or 
another security agreement in substantially similar form, if needed), 
granting the Secured Creditors a security interest in all

                                     -65-

of such Foreign Subsidiary's assets and securing the Obligations of the 
Borrower under the Credit Documents and under any Interest Rate Protection 
Agreement or Other Hedging Agreement and, in the event the Subsidiary 
Guaranty shall have been executed by such Foreign Subsidiary, the obligations 
of such Foreign Subsidiary thereunder, and in the case of a failure to 
deliver the evidence described in clause (iii) above, such Foreign Subsidiary 
shall execute and deliver the Subsidiary Guaranty (or another guaranty in 
substantially similar form, if needed), guaranteeing the Obligations of the 
Borrower under the Credit Documents and under any Interest Rate Protection 
Agreement or Other Hedging Agreement, in each case to the extent that the 
entering into such Security Agreement or Subsidiary Guaranty is permitted by 
the laws of the respective foreign jurisdiction and with all documents 
delivered pursuant to this Section 7.14 to be in form and substance 
reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the Required Banks.

     7.15  INTEREST RATE PROTECTION.  The Borrower shall no later than 100 
days following the Initial Borrowing Date enter into Interest Rate Protection 
Agreements, satisfactory to the Agents, with a term of at least three years, 
establishing a fixed or maximum interest rate acceptable to the Agents in 
respect of at least 50% of the then outstanding Term Loans.

     7.16  DEBENTURES REDEMPTION.  No later than the 30th day after the 
Initial Borrowing Date, Holdings shall redeem in full all of its outstanding 
15% Debentures, and shall pay all accrued interest thereon and other amounts 
owing in respect thereof.

     7.17  HOLDINGS PREFERRED STOCK REDEMPTION.  No later than December 16, 
1996, Holdings shall redeem in full all of its outstanding Holdings Preferred 
Stock, and shall pay all accrued but unpaid regularly scheduled dividends 
thereon and other amounts owing in respect thereof.

     7.18  SENIOR NOTES TENDER OFFER/DEFEASANCE.  Immediately following the 
Acquisition, and in any event on the Initial Borrowing Date, IVAC shall 
consummate the Existing Senior Notes Tender Offer/Consent Solicitation 
pursuant to which IVAC shall repurchase all Existing Senior Notes, to the 
extent tendered and not withdrawn pursuant to the Existing Senior Notes 
Tender Offer/Consent Solicitation and shall duly cancel all Existing Senior 
Notes so purchased.  The Existing Senior Notes Tender Offer/Consent 
Solicitation shall be consummated in accordance with all applicable law and 
in accordance with the Existing Senior Notes Tender Offer/Consent 
Solicitation Documents.  In the event that 100% of the Existing Senior Notes 
are not accepted for payment by IVAC pursuant to the Existing Senior Notes 
Tender Offer/Consent Solicitation, all Existing Senior Notes which have not 
been tendered shall be defeased on the Initial Borrowing Date, immediately 
following the Acquisition, in a manner satisfactory to the Agents and the 
Required Banks.

     7.19  MAINTENANCE OF CORPORATE SEPARATENESS.  Holdings will, and will 
cause each of its Subsidiaries to, satisfy customary corporate formalities, 
including the maintenance of corporate records.  Neither Holdings nor any 
Subsidiary of Holdings (other than Fidata and River Medical) shall make any 
payment to a creditor of Fidata or River Medical in respect of

                                     -66-

any liability of Fidata or River Medical, as the case may be, and no bank 
account of Fidata or River Medical shall be commingled with any bank account 
of Holdings or any such Subsidiary of Holdings.  Any financial statements 
distributed to any creditors of Fidata or River Medical shall clearly 
establish the corporate separateness of Fidata or River Medical, as the case 
may be, from Holdings and each of Holdings' Subsidiaries.  Finally, neither 
Holdings nor any of its Subsidiaries shall take any action, or conduct its

     may pay cash Dividends to Holdings in an amount equal to the principal 
     amount of such 7-1/4% Debentures, so long as the proceeds thereof are
     promptly used by Holdings to repay the principal of such 7-1/4% Debentures,
     provided that the cash Dividends may only be paid pursuant to this 
     clause (vi) to the extent that the Leverage Ratio at such time (determined

     provided that the amount of cash Dividends so paid with respect to a 
     taxable year or other taxable period shall not exceed the sum of:  (x) the 
     lesser of (A) the federal income taxes that the Borrower and its 
     Subsidiaries (the "Borrower Subgroup") would be required to pay with 
     respect to such taxable year if the Borrower Subgroup had filed a separate 
     consolidated federal income tax return for the current year and for all
     prior taxable years (collectively, the "Hypothetical Separate Federal 
     Income Tax Liability"), and (B) the product of (I) the federal income tax 
     liability of the Holdings Consolidated Group for such year and (II) a 
     fraction, (a) the numerator of which is an amount equal to the Hypothetical
     Separate Federal Income Tax Liability for such year and (b) the denominator
     of which is the sum of (x) the Hypothetical Separate Federal Income Tax 
     Liability of the Borrower Subgroup for such year plus (y) the separate 
     federal income tax liability (or less the corresponding negative tax
     liability) that each other member of the Holdings Consolidated Group would 
     have incurred for such year if such corporations had filed separate 
     federal income tax returns for such year and all prior years (provided that
     the amount determined under this clause (y) shall not be less than zero), 
     PROVIDED that, in the event that the income tax liability of the Holdings 
     Consolidated Group for any taxable year exceeds the Hypothetical Separate 
     Federal Income Tax Liability of the Borrower Subgroup for such year (an
     "Excess Tax Liability"), the Borrower may pay to Holdings (as an additional
     Dividend) such Excess Tax Liability, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the Borrower 
     shall not pay to Holdings any amount in respect of an Excess Tax Liability 
     that is greater than (A) the sum of the Hypothetical Separate Federal 
     Income Tax Liability of the Borrower Subgroup for all taxable years ending
     after the Effective Date minus (B) the sum of all amounts previously paid 
     by the Borrower to Holdings pursuant to this clause (x); and (y) if the 
     Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries file combined, consolidated or unitary 
     state tax returns with Holdings for any taxable year or other taxable 
     period, the amount of state income taxes in respect of which a combined,
     consolidated or unitary return was filed, calculated under the same 
     methodology set forth in clause (x) with respect to federal income tax 
     liability.  If Holdings receives a refund or a credit or is subject to any 
     final determination with respect to any audit adjustment (including 
     interest and penalties) with respect to tax liabilities which relates to 
     any taxable year or other taxable period in which the Borrower or its 
     Subsidiaries are included in the Holdings Consolidated Group or file 
     combined, consolidated or unitary state tax returns with Holdings, then the
     amount of the payments provided for in this clause (vii) shall be 
     recomputed (and

     (ii)  If for any fiscal year of Holdings commencing with the fiscal year 
ending on December 31, 1998, (x) the Consolidated EBITDA for the immediately 
preceding fiscal year is more than the projected Consolidated EBITDA of 
Holdings set forth on Annex XII for such immediately preceding fiscal year 
(the amount by which such actual Consolidated EBITDA exceeds such projected 
Consolidated EBITDA, the "Surplus"), then the amount of Capital Expenditures 
permitted to be made in such fiscal year pursuant to this Section 8.08(a) 
shall be (A) 

                                     -84-

the amount set forth in clause (a)(i) above opposite such fiscal year 
plus (B) the Surplus multiplied by 0.25.

     (b)  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the amount of 
Capital Expenditures permitted to be made by Holdings and its Subsidiaries 
pursuant to clause (a) above in any fiscal year (before giving effect to any 
increase in such permitted expenditure amount pursuant to this clause (b)) is 
greater than the amount of such Capital Expenditures made by Holdings and its 
Subsidiaries during such fiscal year, such excess (the "Rollover Amount") may 
be carried forward and utilized to make Capital Expenditures in succeeding 
fiscal years, provided that in no event shall the aggregate amount of Capital 
Expenditures made by Holdings and its Subsidiaries during any fiscal year 
pursuant to Section 8.08(a) exceed 125% of the amount set forth in such

insurance proceeds are not required to be applied to repay Term Loans 
pursuant to Section 4.02(A)(g).

make Capital Expenditures (which Capital Expenditures will not be included in 
any determination under the foregoing clause (a)) with the Net Proceeds of

to repay Term Loans pursuant to Section 4.02(A)(c).

     (e)  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Holdings may make Capital 
Expenditures (which Capital Expenditures will not be included in any 
determination under the foregoing clause (a)) constituting Permitted 
Acquisitions.

     (f)  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Holdings and its Subsidiaries may 
make Capital Expenditures at any time in an aggregate amount equal to the 
Excess Proceeds Amount at such time (which Capital Expenditures will not be 
included in any determination under the foregoing clause (a)), provided that 
the aggregate amount of Capital Expenditures permitted to be made by Holdings 
and its Subsidiaries pursuant to this clause (f) in any fiscal year shall be 
$5,000,000 (or at any time during a Reduced Leverage Period, $10,000,000).

     (g)  The Borrower and its Subsidiaries may incur Capitalized Lease 
Obligations in an aggregate amount not to exceed $6,000,000 under a lease of

the Banks.  Each Agent shall take such action with respect to such Default or 
Event of Default as shall be reasonably directed by the Required Banks; 
PROVIDED, that, unless and until such Agent shall have received such 
directions, such Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, 
or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default or Event of 
Default as it shall deem advisable in the best interests of the Banks.

     11.06  NON-RELIANCE ON AGENT, AND OTHER BANKS.  Each Bank expressly

directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or affiliates have made any 
representations or warranties to it and that no act by any Agent hereinafter 
taken, including any review of the affairs of Holdings or any of its 
Subsidiaries, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by 
such Agent to any Bank.  Each Bank represents to each Agent that it has, 
independently and without reliance upon any Agent or any other Bank, and 
based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made 
its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, assets, operations, 
property, financial and other condition, prospects and creditworthiness of 
Holdings and its Subsidiaries and made its own decision to make its Loans 
hereunder and enter into this Agreement.  Each Bank also represents that it 
will, independently and without reliance upon any Agent or any other Bank, 
and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at 
the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions 
in taking or not taking action under this Agreement, and to make such 
investigation as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, 
assets, operations, property, financial and other condition, prospects and 
creditworthiness of Holdings and its Subsidiaries.  No Agent shall have any 
duty or responsibility to provide any Bank with any credit or other 
information concerning the business, operations, assets, property, financial

Banks at such time (determined as if there are no Defaulting Banks), from and 
against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, 
actions, judgments, suits, costs, reasonable expenses or disbursements of any 
kind whatsoever which may at any time (including, without limitation, at any 
time following the payment of the Obligations) be imposed on, incurred by or 
asserted against such Agent in its capacity as such in any way relating to or 
arising out of this Agreement or any other Credit Document, or any documents 
contemplated by or referred to herein or the transactions contemplated hereby 
or any action taken or omitted to be taken by such Agent under or in 
connection with any of the foregoing, but only to the extent that any of the 
foregoing is not paid by Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries; PROVIDED, that 
no Bank shall be liable to any Agent for the payment of any portion of such 
liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, 
suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting primarily from the gross 
negligence or willful misconduct of such Agent.  To the extent any Bank would 
be required to indemnify such Agent pursuant to the immediately preceding 
sentence but for the fact that it is a Defaulting Bank, such Defaulting Bank 
shall not be entitled to receive any portion of any payment or other 
distribution hereunder until each other Bank shall have been reimbursed for 
the excess, if any, of the aggregate amount paid by such Bank under this 
Section 11.07 over the aggregate amount such Bank would have been obligated 
to pay had such first Bank not been a Defaulting Bank.  If any indemnity 
furnished to any Agent for any purpose shall, in the opinion of such Agent be 
insufficient or become impaired, such Agent may call for additional indemnity 
and cease, or not commence, to do the acts indemnified against until such 
additional indemnity is furnished.  The agreements in this Section 11.07 
shall survive the payment of all Obligations and termination of all 
Commitments.

     11.08  AGENTS IN THEIR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES.  Each Agent and its 
affiliates may make loans to, accept deposits from and generally engage in 
any kind of business with Holdings and its Subsidiaries as though such Agent 
were not an Agent hereunder.  With respect to the Loans made by it and all 
Obligations owing to it, each Agent shall have the same rights and powers 
under this Agreement as any Bank and may exercise the same as though it were 
not an Agent and the terms "Bank" and "Banks" shall include each Agent in its 
individual capacity.

     11.09  HOLDERS.  Each Agent may deem and treat the payee of any Note as 
the owner thereof for all purposes hereof unless and until a written notice 
of the assignment, transfer or endorsement thereof, as the case may be, shall 
have been filed with the Administrative Agent.  Any request, authority or 
consent of any Person or entity who, at the time of making such request or 
giving such authority or consent, is the holder of any Note shall be 
conclusive and binding on any subsequent holder, transferee, assignee or 
indorsee, as the case may be, of such Note or of any Note or Notes issued in 
exchange therefor.

that no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is then continuing, to 
prior approval by Holdings (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or 
delayed), whereupon such successor agent shall succeed to the rights, powers 
and duties of such 

                                     -129-

Agent, and the term "Agent" shall include such successor agent effective upon 
its appointment, and the resigning Agent's rights, powers and duties as an 
Agent shall be terminated, without any other or further act or deed on the 
part of such former Agent or any of the parties to this Agreement.  If a 
successor Agent shall not have been so appointed within such 20 day period 
after the date such notice of resignation was given by such Agent, the 
Agent's resignation shall become effective and the Banks shall thereafter 
perform all duties of such Agent hereunder and/or under any other Credit 
Documents until such time, if any, as the Required Banks appoint a successor 
Agent as provided above.  After the resignation of such Agent hereunder, the 
provisions of this Section 11 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions 
taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Agent under this Agreement.

     SECTION 12.  MISCELLANEOUS.

investigation, litigation or other proceeding (whether or not any Agent, the 
Collateral Agent or any Bank is a party thereto) related to the entering into 
and/or performance of this Agreement or any other Document or the use of the 
proceeds of any Loans hereunder or the Transaction or the consummation of any 
other transactions contemplated in any Document (but excluding any such

owned or operated by Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries, in each case, 
including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and disbursements of

the contrary in this Agreement, the Borrower shall be permitted to pay all 
fees in connection with the Transaction, regardless of whether such fees are 
owing by Holdings, IVAC Holdings or any Wholly-Owned Subsidiary of Holdings.

     12.02  RIGHT OF SETOFF.  In addition to any rights now or hereafter 
granted under applicable law or otherwise, and not by way of limitation of 
any such rights, upon the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, 
each Bank is hereby authorized at any time or from time to time, without 
presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind to any Credit Party 
or to any other Person, any such notice being hereby expressly waived, to set 
off and to appropriate and apply any and all deposits (general or special) 
and any other Indebtedness at any time held or owing by such Bank (including, 
without limitation, by branches and agencies of such Bank wherever located) 
to or for the credit or the account of such Credit Party against and on 
account of the Obligations and liabilities of such Credit Party to such Bank 
or any other Bank under this Agreement or under any of the other Credit 
Documents, including, without limitation, all interests in Obligations of 
such Credit Party purchased by such Bank or any other Bank pursuant to 
Section 12.06(b), and all other claims of any nature or description arising 
out of or connected with this Agreement or any other Credit Document, 
irrespective of whether or not such Bank shall have made any demand hereunder 
and although said Obligations, liabilities or claims, or any of them, shall 
be contingent or unmatured. Each Bank is hereby designated the agent of all 
other Banks for purposes of effecting set off pursuant to this Section 12.02, 
and each Credit Party hereby grants to each Bank for such Bank's own benefit 
and as agent for all other Banks a continuing security interest in any and 
all deposits, accounts or moneys of such Credit Party maintained from time to 
time with such Bank.   

     12.03  NOTICES.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all 
notices and other communications provided for hereunder shall be in writing 
(including telegraphic, telex, facsimile or cable communication) and mailed, 
telegraphed, telexed, telecopied, cabled or delivered, if to any Credit 
Party, at the address specified opposite its signature below or in the other 
relevant Credit Documents, as the case may be; if to any Bank, at its address 
specified for such Bank on Annex II; or, at such other address as shall be 
designated by any party in a written notice to the other parties hereto.  All 
such notices and communications shall be mailed, telegraphed, telexed, 
telecopied or cabled or sent by overnight courier, and shall be effective 
when received.

     12.04  BENEFIT OF AGREEMENT.  (a)  This Agreement shall be binding upon 
and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the respective successors 
and assigns of the parties hereto; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, no Credit Party may 
assign or transfer any of its rights, obligations or interest hereunder or 
under any other Credit Document without the prior written consent of all 

                                     -131-

of the Banks and, PROVIDED FURTHER, that, although any Bank may transfer, 
assign or grant participations in its rights hereunder, such Bank shall 
remain a "Bank" for all purposes hereunder (and may not transfer or assign 
all or any portion of its Commitments hereunder except as provided in Section 
12.04(b)) and the transferee, assignee or participant, as the case may be, 
shall not constitute a "Bank" hereunder and, PROVIDED FURTHER, that no Bank 
shall transfer or grant any participation under which the participant shall 
have rights to approve any amendment to or waiver of this Agreement or any 
other Credit Document except to the extent such amendment or waiver would (i) 
extend the final scheduled maturity of any Loan, Note or Letter of Credit 
(unless such Letter of Credit is not extended beyond the Revolving Loan 
Maturity Date) in which such participant is participating, or reduce the rate 
or extend the time of payment of interest or Fees thereon (except in 
connection with a waiver of applicability of any post-default increase in 
interest rates) or reduce the principal amount thereof, or increase the 
amount of the participant's participation over the amount thereof then in 
effect (it being understood that a waiver of any Default or Event of Default 
or of a mandatory reduction in the Total Commitment shall not constitute a 
change in the terms of such participation, and that an increase in any 
Commitment or Loan shall be permitted without the consent of any participant 
if the participant's participation is not increased as a result thereof), 
(ii) consent to the assignment or transfer by Holdings or the Borrower of any 
of its rights and obligations under this Agreement or (iii) release all or 
substantially all of the Collateral under all of the Security Documents 
(except as expressly provided in the Credit Documents) supporting the Loans 
hereunder in which such participant is participating.  In the case of any 
such participation, the participant shall not have any rights under this 
Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents (the participant's rights 
against such Bank in respect of such participation to be those set forth in 
the agreement executed by such Bank in favor of the participant relating 
thereto) and all amounts payable by the Borrower hereunder shall be 
determined as if such Bank had not sold such participation.

     (b)  Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Bank (or any Bank together with 
one or more other Banks) may (x) assign all or a portion of its Revolving 
Loan Commitment (and related outstanding Obligations hereunder) and/or its 
outstanding Term Loans to its parent company and/or any affiliate of such 
Bank which is at least 50% owned by such Bank or its parent company or to one 
or more Banks or (y) assign all, or if less than all, a portion equal to at 
least $5,000,000 in the aggregate for the assigning Bank or assigning Banks, 
of such Revolving Loan Commitments and/or outstanding principal amount of 
Term Loans hereunder to one or more Eligible Transferees, each of which 
assignees shall become a party to this Agreement as a Bank by execution of an 
Assignment and Assumption Agreement, PROVIDED that (i) at such time Annex I 
shall be deemed modified to reflect the Commitments (and/or outstanding Term 
Loans, as the case may be) of such new Bank and of the existing Banks, (ii) 
upon surrender of the old Notes, new Notes will be issued, at the Borrower's 
expense, to such new Bank and to the assigning Bank, such new Notes to be in 
conformity with the requirements of Section 1.05 (with appropriate 
modifications) to the extent needed to reflect the revised Commitments 
(and/or outstanding Term Loans, as the case may be), (iii) the consent of the 
Administrative Agent shall be required in connection with any such assignment 
pursuant to clause (y) of this Section 12.04(b) (which consent shall not be 
unreasonably withheld or delayed), (iv) the 

                                     -132-

consent of each Letter of Credit Issuer shall be required in connection with 
any such assignment of Revolving Loan Commitments pursuant to clause (y) of 
this Section 12.04(b) (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld) and 
(v) the Administrative Agent shall receive at the time of each such 
assignment, from the assigning or assignee Bank, the payment of a 
non-refundable assignment fee of $3,500 and, PROVIDED FURTHER, that such 
transfer or assignment will not be effective until recorded by the 
Administrative Agent on the Register pursuant to Section 7.12 hereof.  To the 
extent of any assignment pursuant to this Section 12.04(b), the assigning 
Bank shall be relieved of its obligations hereunder with respect to its 
assigned Commitments.  At the time of each assignment pursuant to this 
Section 12.04(b) to a Person which is not already a Bank hereunder and which 
is not a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) 
of the Code) for Federal income tax purposes, the respective assignee Bank 
shall provide to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent the appropriate 
Internal Revenue Service Forms (and, if applicable a Section 4.04(b)(ii) 
Certificate) described in Section 4.04(b).  To the extent that an assignment 
of all or any portion of a Bank's Commitments and related outstanding 
Obligations pursuant to Section 1.13 or this Section 12.04(b) would, at the 
time of such assignment, result in increased costs under Section 1.10, 1.11, 
2.05 or 4.04 from those being charged by the respective assigning Bank prior 
to such assignment, then the Borrower shall not be obligated to pay such 
increased costs (although the Borrower shall be obligated to pay any other 
increased costs of the type described above resulting from changes after the 
date of the respective assignment).

     (c)  Nothing in this Agreement shall prevent or prohibit any Bank from 
pledging its Loans and Notes hereunder to a Federal Reserve Bank in support 
of borrowings made by such Bank from such Federal Reserve Bank.

     12.05  NO WAIVER; REMEDIES CUMULATIVE.  No failure or delay on the part 
of any Agent, the Administrative Agent or any Bank in exercising any right, 
power or privilege hereunder or under any other Credit Document and no course 
of dealing between any Credit Party and any Agent or any Bank shall operate 
as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, 
power or privilege hereunder or under any other Credit Document preclude any 
other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power 
or privilege hereunder or thereunder. The rights and remedies herein 
expressly provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies 
which any Agent, the Administrative Agent or any Bank would otherwise have.  
No notice to or demand on any Credit Party in any case shall entitle any 
Credit Party to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other 
circumstances or constitute a waiver of the rights of any Agent, the 
Administrative Agent or the Banks to any other or further action in any 
circumstances without notice or demand.

     12.06  PAYMENTS PRO RATA.  (a)  The Administrative Agent agrees that 
promptly after its receipt of each payment from or on behalf of any Credit 
Party in respect of any Obligations of such Credit Party, it shall, except as 
otherwise provided in this Agreement, distribute such payment to the Banks 
(other than any Bank that has consented in writing to waive its PRO RATA 
share of such payment) PRO RATA based upon their respective shares, if any, 
of the Obligations with respect to which such payment was received.

                                     -133-

     (b)  Each of the Banks agrees that, if it should receive any amount 
hereunder (whether by voluntary payment, by realization upon security, by the 
exercise of the right of setoff or banker's lien, by counterclaim or cross 
action, by the enforcement of any right under the Credit Documents, or 
otherwise) which is applicable to the payment of the principal of, or 
interest on, the Loans, Unpaid Drawings or Fees, of a sum which with respect 
to the related sum or sums received by other Banks is in a greater proportion 
than the total of such Obligation then owed and due to such Bank bears to the 
total of such Obligation then owed and due to all of the Banks immediately 
prior to such receipt, then such Bank receiving such excess payment shall 
purchase for cash without recourse or warranty from the other Banks an 
interest in the Obligations of the respective Credit Party to such Banks in 
such amount as shall result in a proportional participation by all of the 
Banks in such amount; PROVIDED, that if all or any portion of such excess 
amount is thereafter recovered from such Bank, such purchase shall be 
rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, but 
without interest.

     12.07  CALCULATIONS; COMPUTATIONS.  (a)  The financial statements to be 
furnished to the Banks pursuant hereto shall be made and prepared in 
accordance with GAAP consistently applied throughout the periods involved 
(except as set forth in the notes thereto or as otherwise disclosed in 
writing by Holdings or the Borrower to the Banks); PROVIDED, that except as 
otherwise specifically provided herein, all computations determining 
compliance with Sections 4.02 and 8, including definitions used therein, 
shall utilize accounting principles and policies in effect at the time of the 
preparation of, and in conformity with those used to prepare, the December 
31, 1995 financial statements delivered to the Banks pursuant to Section 
6.10(b) and (c).

     (b)  All computations of interest and Fees hereunder shall be made on 
the actual number of days elapsed over a year of 360 days.

     12.08  GOVERNING LAW; SUBMISSION TO JURISDICTION; VENUE.  (a)  THIS 
AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENTS AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF 
THE PARTIES HEREUNDER AND THEREUNDER SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH 
AND BE GOVERNED BY THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK EXCEPT CERTAIN CREDIT 
DOCUMENTS WHICH SHALL BE GOVERNED BY  SUCH OTHER JURISDICTION AS SPECIFIED IN 
EACH SUCH CREDIT DOCUMENT. Any legal action or proceeding with respect to 
this Agreement or any other Credit Document may be brought in the courts of 
the State of New York or of the United States for the Southern District of 
New York, and, by execution and delivery of this Agreement, each Credit Party 
hereby irrevocably accepts for itself and in respect of its property, 
generally and unconditionally, the jurisdiction of the aforesaid courts.  
Each Credit Party hereby further irrevocably waives any claim that any such 
courts lack jurisdiction over such Credit Party, and agrees not to plead or 
claim, in any legal action or proceeding with respect to this Agreement or 
any other Credit Document brought in any of the aforesaid courts, that any 
such court lacks jurisdiction over such Credit Party.  Each Credit Party 
irrevocably consents to the service of process in any such action or 
proceeding by the mailing of copies thereof by registered or certified mail, 
postage prepaid, to such Credit Party, at its address for 

                                     -134-

notices pursuant to Section 12.03, such service to become effective 30 days 
after such mailing.  Each Credit Party hereby irrevocably waives any 
objection to such service of process and further irrevocably waives and 
agrees not to plead or claim in any action or proceeding commenced hereunder 
or under any other Credit Document that service of process was in any way 
invalid or ineffective.  Nothing herein shall affect the right of any Agent, 
the Administrative Agent, any Bank or the holder of any Note to serve process 
in any other manner permitted by law or to commence legal proceedings or 
otherwise proceed against any Credit Party in any other jurisdiction.

     (b)  Each Credit Party hereby irrevocably waives any objection which it 
may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any of the aforesaid 
actions or proceedings arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or 
any other Credit Document brought in the courts referred to in clause (a) 
above and hereby further irrevocably waives and agrees not to plead or claim 
in any such court that any such action or proceeding brought in any such 
court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.  

     12.09  COUNTERPARTS.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of 
counterparts and by the different parties hereto on separate counterparts, 
each of which when so executed and delivered shall be an original, but all of

Holdings, the Borrower and each Agent.

     12.10  EFFECTIVENESS.  This Agreement shall become effective on the date

Administrative Agent telephonic (confirmed in writing), written, telex or 
facsimile notice (actually received) at such office that the same has been

     12.12  AMENDMENT OR WAIVER; ETC.  (a)  Neither this Agreement nor any 
other Credit Document nor any terms hereof or thereof may be changed, waived, 
discharged or terminated unless such change, waiver, discharge or termination 
is in writing signed by the respective Credit Parties party thereto and the 
Required Banks, PROVIDED that no such change, waiver, discharge or 
termination shall, without the consent of each Bank (other than a Defaulting 
Bank) (with Obligations being directly affected thereby in the case of 
following clause (i)), (i) extend the final scheduled maturity of any Loan or 
Note or extend the stated maturity of any Letter of Credit beyond the 
Revolving Loan Maturity Date, or reduce the rate or extend the time of 
payment of interest or Fees thereon, or reduce the principal amount thereof, 
(ii) release all or

on substantially the same basis as the extensions of Term Loans and Revolving 
Loan Commitments are included on the Effective Date) or (v) consent to the 
assignment or transfer by Holdings or the Borrower of any of its rights and 
obligations under this Agreement (other than such assignment or transfer 
consummated in accordance with this Agreement as in effect on the Initial 
Borrowing Date); PROVIDED, FURTHER, that no such change, waiver, discharge or 
termination shall (1) increase the Commitments of any Bank over the amount 
thereof then in effect without the consent of such Bank (it being understood 
that waivers or modifications of conditions precedent, covenants, Defaults or 
Events of Default or of a mandatory reduction in the Total Commitment shall 
not constitute an increase of the Commitment of any Bank, and that an 
increase in the available portion of any Commitment of any Bank shall not 
constitute an increase in the Commitment of such Bank), (2) without the 
consent of BTCo, amend, modify or waive any provision of Section 2 or alter 
its rights or obligations with respect to Letters of Credit or Swingline 
Loans, (3) without the consent of each Agent, amend, modify or waive any

consent of the Collateral Agent, amend, modify or waive any provision 
relating to the rights or obligations of the Collateral Agent, (5) without 
the consent of the Majority Banks of each Facility which is being allocated a 
lesser prepayment, repayment or commitment reduction as a result of the 
actions described below (or without the consent of the Majority Banks of each 
Facility in the case of an amendment to the definition of Majority Banks), 
amend the definition of Majority Banks or alter the required application of 
any prepayments or repayments (or commitment reduction), as between the 
various Facilities pursuant to Section 4.01(a) or 4.02 (although the Required 
Banks may waive, in whole or in part, any such prepayment, repayment or 
commitment reduction so long as the application, as amongst the various 
Facilities, of any such prepayment, repayment or commitment reduction which 
is still required to be made is not altered) or (6) without the consent of 
the Supermajority Banks of the respective Facility, amend the definition of 
Supermajority Banks or amend, modify or waive any Scheduled Repayment of such 
affected Facility. 

     (b)  If, in connection with any proposed change, waiver, discharge or 
termination to any of the provisions of this Agreement as contemplated by 
clause (a)(i) through (v), inclusive, of the first proviso to Section 
12.12(a), the consent of the Required Banks is obtained but the consent of 
one or more of such other Banks whose consent is required is not obtained, 
then the Borrower shall have the right, so long as all non-consenting Banks 
whose individual consent is required are treated as described in either 
clause (A) or (B) below, to either (A) replace each such non-consenting Bank 
or Banks with one or more Replacement Banks pursuant to Section 1.13 so long 
as at the time of such replacement, each such Replacement Bank consents to 
the proposed  change, waiver, discharge or termination or (B) terminate all 
of such non-consenting Bank's Commitments and repay in full its outstanding 
Loans, in accordance with 

                                     -136-

Sections 3.02(b) and/or 4.01(b), PROVIDED that, unless the Commitments 
terminated and Loans repaid pursuant to preceding clause (B) are immediately 
replaced in full at such time through the addition of new Banks or the 
increase of the Commitments and/or outstanding Loans of existing Banks (who 
in each case must specifically consent thereto), then in the case of any 
action pursuant to preceding clause (B) the Required Banks (determined before 
giving effect to the proposed action) shall specifically consent thereto, 
PROVIDED FURTHER, that the Borrower shall not have the right to replace a 
Bank solely as a result of the exercise of such Bank's rights (and the 
withholding of any required consent by such Bank) pursuant to the second 
proviso to Section 12.12(a).

     12.13  SURVIVAL.  All indemnities set forth herein including, without 
limitation, in Section 1.10, 1.11, 2.05, 4.04, 11.07 or 12.01, shall survive

the Loans.

     12.14  DOMICILE OF LOANS.  Each Bank may transfer and carry its Loans 
at, to or for the account of any branch office, subsidiary or affiliate of 
such Bank; PROVIDED, that the Borrower shall not be responsible for costs 
arising under Section 1.10, 1.11, 2.05 or 4.04 resulting from any such 
transfer (other than a transfer pursuant to Section 1.12) to the extent such 
costs would not otherwise be applicable to such Bank in the absence of such 
transfer.

     12.15  CONFIDENTIALITY.  (a)  Each of the Banks agrees that it will use 
its best efforts not to disclose without the prior consent of the Borrower 
(other than to its employees, auditors, counsel or other professional 
advisors, to affiliates or to another Bank if the Bank or such Bank's holding 
or parent company in its sole discretion determines that any such party 
should have access to such information) any information with respect to 
Holdings, the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries which is furnished pursuant 
to this Agreement; PROVIDED, that any Bank may disclose any such information 
(a) as has become generally available to the public or has become available 
to such Bank on a non-confidential basis, (b) as may be required or 
appropriate in any report, statement or testimony submitted to any municipal, 
state or Federal regulatory body having or claiming to have jurisdiction over 
such Bank or to the Federal Reserve Board or the Federal Deposit Insurance 
Corporation or the National Association of Insurance Commission or similar 
organizations (whether in the United States or elsewhere) or their 
successors, (c) as may be required or appropriate in response to any summons 
or subpoena or in connection with any litigation, (d) in order to comply with 
any law, order, regulation or ruling applicable to such Bank, and (e) to any 
prospective transferee in connection with any contemplated transfer of any of 
the Notes or any interest therein by such Bank; PROVIDED, that such 
prospective transferee agrees, for the benefit of such Bank and the Borrower, 
to provisions substantially identical to those contained in this Section.

     (b)  Each of Holdings and the Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees 
that each Bank may share with any of its affiliates any information related 
to Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries (including, without limitation, any 
nonpublic customer information regarding the creditworthiness of Holdings and 
its Subsidiaries, provided that such Persons shall be subject to the 
provisions of this Section 12.15 to the same extent as such Bank).

                                     -137-

     12.16  WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL.  EACH OF THE PARTIES TO THIS AGREEMENT 
HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, 
PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE 
OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENTS OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY.

     12.17  IMED MERGER.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained 
in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document, the Borrower shall, as 
required by Section 7.20, on the Initial Borrowing Date, immediately 
following the Acquisition, merge with and into IVAC Holdings (the "IMED 
Merger"), at the time of which IMED Merger the following conditions shall 
have been satisfied (it being understood and agreed that all documents and 
instruments listed below shall be executed and delivered into an escrow 
arrangement satisfactory to the Agents on the Initial Borrowing Date (before 
the incurrence of the initial Loans on such date) pending consummation of the 
IMED Merger): 

          (i)  the Agents shall have received copies of the documents and 
     instruments of transfer in connection with the IMED Merger, certified as 
     true and correct by an officer of the Borrower, which documents and
     instruments shall be satisfactory in form and substance to the Bank;

          (ii)  IVAC Holdings shall have duly authorized, executed and delivered
     to the Agents the IMED Merger Documents which shall include an assumption
     acknowledgment in the form of Exhibit M attached hereto (the "Assumption

the Required Banks at such time.

     SECTION 13.  HOLDING COMPANY GUARANTY.

     13.01  THE GUARANTY.  In order to induce the Banks to enter into this 
Agreement and to extend credit hereunder and in recognition of the direct 
benefits to be received by Holdings from the proceeds of the Loans and the 
issuance of the Letters of Credit, Holdings hereby agrees with the Banks as 
follows:  Holdings hereby unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees as 
primary obligor and not merely as surety the full and prompt payment when 
due, whether upon maturity, acceleration or otherwise, of any and all of the 
Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower to the Guaranteed Creditors.  If any 
or all of the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower to the Guaranteed 
Creditors becomes due and payable hereunder, Holdings unconditionally 
promises to pay such indebtedness to the Administrative Agent and/or the 
Banks, or order, on demand, together with any and all expenses which may be 
incurred by the Administrative Agent or the Banks in collecting any of the 
Guaranteed Obligations.  If claim is ever made upon any Guaranteed Creditor 
for repayment or recovery of any amount or amounts received in payment or on 
account of any of the Guaranteed Obligations and any of the aforesaid payees 
repays all or part of said amount by reason of (i) any judgment, decree or 
order of any court or administrative body having jurisdiction over such payee 
or any of its property or (ii) any settlement or compromise of any such claim 
effected by such payee with any such claimant (including the Borrower), then 
and in such event Holdings agrees that any such

                                     -140-

                                                                       EX 10.1 K

judgment, decree, order, settlement or compromise shall be binding upon 
Holdings, notwithstanding any revocation of this Guaranty or other instrument 
evidencing any liability of the Borrower, and Holdings shall be and remain 
liable to the aforesaid payees hereunder for the amount so repaid or 
recovered to the same extent as if such amount had never originally been 
received by any such payee.

     13.02  BANKRUPTCY.  Additionally, Holdings unconditionally and 
irrevocably guarantees the payment of any and all of the Guaranteed 
Obligations of the Borrower to the Guaranteed Creditors whether or not due or 
payable by the Borrower upon the occurrence of any of the events specified in 
Section 9.05, and unconditionally, promises to pay such indebtedness to the 
Guaranteed Creditors, or order, on demand, in lawful money of the United 
States.

     13.03  NATURE OF LIABILITY.  The liability of Holdings hereunder is 
exclusive and independent of any security for or other guaranty of the 
Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower whether executed by Holdings, any 
other guarantor or by any other party, and the liability of Holdings 
hereunder is not affected or impaired by (a) any direction as to application 
of payment by the Borrower or by any other party, or (b) any other continuing 
or other guaranty, undertaking or maximum liability of a guarantor or of any 
other party as to the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower, or (c) any 
payment on or in reduction of any such other guaranty or undertaking, or (d) 
any dissolution, termination or increase, decrease or change in personnel by 
the Borrower, or (e) any payment made to any Guaranteed Creditor on the 
Guaranteed Obligations which any such Guaranteed Creditor repays to the 
Borrower pursuant to court order in any bankruptcy, reorganization, 
arrangement, moratorium or other debtor relief proceeding, and Holdings 
waives any right to the deferral or modification of its obligations hereunder 
by reason of any such proceeding.

     13.04  INDEPENDENT OBLIGATION.  The obligations of Holdings hereunder 
are independent of the obligations of any other guarantor, any other party or 
the Borrower, and a separate action or actions may be brought and prosecuted 
against Holdings whether or not action is brought against any other 
guarantor, any other party or the Borrower and whether or not any other 
guarantor, any other party or the Borrower be joined in any such action or 
actions.  Holdings waives, to the full extent permitted by law, the benefit 
of any statute of limitations affecting its liability hereunder or the 
enforcement thereof.  Any payment by the Borrower or other circumstance which 
operates to toll any statute of limitations as to the Borrower shall operate 
to toll the statute of limitations as to Holdings. 

     13.05  AUTHORIZATION.  Holdings authorizes the Guaranteed Creditors 
without notice or demand (except as shall be required by applicable statute 
and cannot be waived), and without affecting or impairing its liability 
hereunder, from time to time to:

          (a)  change the manner, place or terms of payment of, and/or change 
     or extend the time of payment of, renew, increase, accelerate or alter, 
     any of the Guaranteed Obligations (including any increase or decrease in 
     the rate of interest thereon), any security therefor, or any liability 
     incurred directly or indirectly in respect thereof, and

                                      -141-

     the Guaranty herein made shall apply to the Guaranteed Obligations as so 
     changed, extended, renewed or altered;

          (b)  take and hold security for the payment of the Guaranteed 
     Obligations and sell, exchange, release, surrender, realize upon or 
     otherwise deal with in any manner and in any order any property by 
     whomsoever at any time pledged or mortgaged to secure, or howsoever 
     securing, the Guaranteed Obligations or any liabilities (including any 
     of those hereunder) incurred directly or indirectly in respect thereof 
     or hereof, and/or any offset thereagainst;

          (c)  exercise or refrain from exercising any rights against the
     Borrower or others or otherwise act or refrain from acting;

          (d)  release or substitute any one or more endorsers, guarantors, the
     Borrower or other obligors;

          (e)  settle or compromise any of the Guaranteed Obligations, any
     security therefor or any liability (including any of those hereunder)
     incurred directly or indirectly in respect thereof or hereof, and may
     subordinate the payment of all or any part thereof to the payment of any
     liability (whether due or not) of the Borrower to its creditors other than
     the Guaranteed Creditors;

          (f)  apply any sums by whomsoever paid or howsoever realized to any
     liability or liabilities of the Borrower to the Guaranteed Creditors
     regardless of what liability or liabilities of Holdings or the Borrower
     remain unpaid;

          (g)  consent to or waive any breach of, or any act, omission or 
     default under, this Agreement or any of the instruments or agreements 
     referred to herein, or otherwise amend, modify or supplement this 
     Agreement or any of such other instruments or agreements; and/or

          (h)  take any other action which would, under otherwise applicable
     principles of common law, give rise to a legal or equitable discharge of
     Holdings from its liabilities under this Guaranty.

     13.06  RELIANCE.  It is not necessary for any Guaranteed Creditor to 
inquire into the capacity or powers of the Borrower or the officers, 
directors, partners or agents acting or purporting to act on their behalf, 
and any Guaranteed Obligations made or created in reliance upon the professed 
exercise of such powers shall be guaranteed hereunder.

     13.07  SUBORDINATION.  Any of the indebtedness of the Borrower relating 
to the Guaranteed Obligations now or hereafter owing to Holdings is hereby 
subordinated to the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower owing to the 
Guaranteed Creditors; and if the Administrative Agent so requests at a time 
when an Event of Default exists, all such

                                      -142-

indebtedness relating to the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower to 
Holdings shall be collected, enforced and received by Holdings for the 
benefit of the Guaranteed Creditors and be paid over to the Administrative 
Agent on behalf of the Guaranteed Creditors on account of the Guaranteed 
Obligations of the Borrower to the Guaranteed Creditors, but without 
affecting or impairing in any manner the liability of Holdings under the 
other provisions of this Guaranty.  Prior to the transfer by Holdings of any 
note or negotiable instrument evidencing any of the indebtedness relating to 
the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower to Holdings, Holdings shall mark 
such note or negotiable instrument with a legend that the same is subject to 
this subordination.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, 
Holdings hereby agrees with the Guaranteed Creditors that it will not 
exercise any right of subrogation which it may at any time otherwise have as 
a result of this Guaranty (whether contractual, under Section 509 of the 
Bankruptcy Code or otherwise) until all Guaranteed Obligations have been 
irrevocably paid in full in cash.

     13.08  WAIVER.  (a)  Holdings waives any right (except as shall be 
required by applicable statute and cannot be waived) to require any 
Guaranteed Creditor to (i) proceed against the Borrower, any other guarantor 
or any other party, (ii) proceed against or exhaust any security held from 
the Borrower, any other guarantor or any other party or (iii) pursue any 
other remedy in any Guaranteed Creditor's power whatsoever.  Holdings waives 
any defense based on or arising out of any defense of the Borrower, any other 
guarantor or any other party, other than payment in full of the Guaranteed 
Obligations, based on or arising out of the disability of the Borrower, any 
other guarantor or any other party, or the validity, legality or 
unenforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations or any part thereof from any 
cause, or the cessation from any cause of the liability of the Borrower other 
than payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations.  The Guaranteed Creditors 
may, at their election, foreclose on any security held by any Agent, 
Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent or any other Guaranteed Creditor 
by one or more judicial or nonjudicial sales, whether or not every aspect of 
any such sale is commercially reasonable (to the extent such sale is 
permitted by applicable law), or exercise any other right or remedy the 
Guaranteed Creditors may have against the Borrower or any other party, or any 
security, without affecting or impairing in any way the liability of Holdings 
hereunder except to the extent the Guaranteed Obligations have been paid.  
Holdings waives any defense arising out of any such election by the 
Guaranteed Creditors, even though such election operates to impair or 
extinguish any right of reimbursement or subrogation or other right or remedy 
of Holdings against the Borrower or any other party or any security.

     (b)  Holdings waives all presentments, demands for performance, protests 
and notices, including without limitation notices of nonperformance, notices 
of protest, notices of dishonor, notices of acceptance of this Guaranty, and 
notices of the existence, creation or incurring of new or additional 
Guaranteed Obligations.  Holdings assumes all responsibility for being and 
keeping itself informed of the Borrower's financial condition and assets, and 
of all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the 
Guaranteed Obligations and the nature, scope and extent of the risks which 
Holdings assumes and incurs hereunder, and agrees that the Administrative 
Agent and the Banks shall have no duty to advise Holdings of information 
known to them regarding such circumstances or risks.

                                      -143-

     (c)  Holdings hereby acknowledges and affirms that it understands that 
to the extent the Guaranteed Obligations are secured by real property located 
in the State of California, Holdings shall be liable for the full amount of 
its liability hereunder notwithstanding foreclosure on such real property by 
trustee sale or any other reason impairing Holdings' or any secured 
creditor's right to proceed against the Borrower or any other guarantor of 
the Guaranteed Obligations.

     (d)  Holdings hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted by 
applicable law, all rights and benefits under Sections 580a, 580b, 580d and 
726 of the California Code of Civil Procedure.  Holdings hereby further 
waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, without limiting 
the generality of the foregoing or any other provision hereof, all rights and 
benefits which might otherwise be available to Holdings under Sections 2787 
through 2855, inclusive, 2899 and 3433 of the California Civil Code.

     (e)  Holdings further understands, is aware and hereby acknowledges that 
if the Guaranteed Creditors elect to nonjudicially foreclose on any real 
property security located in the State of California any right of subrogation 
of Holdings against any Credit Party may be impaired or extinguished and that 
as a result of such impairment or extinguishment of subrogation rights, 
Holdings may have a defense to a deficiency judgment arising out of the 
operation of Section 580d of the California Code of Civil Procedure and 
related principles of estoppel. Holdings waives all rights and defenses 
arising out of an election of remedies by the Banks, even though that 
election of remedies, such as a nonjudicial foreclosure with respect to 
security for a guaranteed obligation, has destroyed the guarantor's rights of 
subrogation and reimbursement against the principal by the operation of 
Section 580d of the Code of Civil Procedure or otherwise.

     13.09  NATURE OF LIABILITY.  It is the desire and intent of Holdings and 
the Guaranteed Creditors that this Guaranty shall be enforced against 
Holdings to the fullest extent permissible under the laws and public policies 
applied in each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought.  If, however, 
and to the extent that, the obligations of Holdings under this Guaranty shall 
be adjudicated to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason (including, 
without limitation, because of any applicable state or federal law relating 
to fraudulent conveyances or transfers), then the amount of the Guaranteed 
Obligations of Holdings shall be deemed to be reduced and Holdings shall pay 
the maximum amount of the Guaranteed Obligations which would be permissible 
under applicable law.

                              *          *          *

                                      -144-

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused their duly authorized 
officers to execute and deliver this Agreement as of the date first above 
written.
