will benefit substantially from the performance of the transactions and
obligations thereunder:

   NOW, THEREFORE, as an inducement to Purchaser to enter into and to perform
its obligations under the Purchase Agreement, and in consideration of the
benefits to be realized by both the Company and the Shareholders from such

  thereby.

     b. For a period of three (3) years following the closing of the

  are to be elected, or in connection with a solicitation of consents through
  which directors of the Company are to be elected, he, she or it shall vote

  three (3) or five (5) directors, whichever is the number of directors
  Purchaser may elect pursuant to its rights as a holder of Series B Stock.

   2.  Restrictions on Transfer of Company Common Stock. Each Shareholder

     a.  Additional Representations. Each Shareholder represents and warrants
  that (i) he, she or it has the requisite power and authority to enter into
  and perform this Agreement; and (ii) the performance of this Agreement by
  such Shareholder will not require him, her or it to obtain the consent,
  waiver or approval of any person and will not, to the best of his, her or
  its knowledge, violate, result in a breach of or constitute a default under
  any statute, regulation, agreement, judgment, consent, decree or
  restriction by which he, she or it is bound.

     b.  Severability. If any term, provision, covenant or restriction of
  this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid,

  and restrictions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect
  and shall in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated.

     c.  Amendments and Modification. This Agreement may not be modified,

  foregoing, this Agreement may not be amended without the written consent of
  Purchaser.

     d.  Equitable Relief. Each Shareholder agrees that if he, she, or it
  fails to perform his, her or its obligations under this Agreement for any
  reason, then Purchaser shall be entitled to specific performance and
  injunctive or other equitable relief, and each Shareholder hereby further
  agrees to waive any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in
  connection with the obtaining of any injunctive or other equitable relief.
