Standard Federal hereby waives the financial covenant stated in Section 10.2.13
on Page 25 of the Loan Agreement.

                  D.       Section 10.2.18 is hereby added to the Loan Agreement

         4.       SURVIVAL AND REAFFIRMATION:

                  Each signatory hereto, by execution hereof, respectively
agrees for itself, in all capacities in which each signatory has executed the
Loan Agreement or Note as follows:

                  A.       That, except as herein modified or amended, all
terms, conditions, covenants, representations and warranties contained in the
Loan Agreement shall remain in full force and effect, and that the undersigned
hereby consent to and acknowledge the foregoing Amendment hereinabove set forth.

                  B.       That the liability of the undersigned howsoever
arising or provided for in the Loan Agreement and/or the Note, as hereby
modified or amended, is hereby reaffirmed.

                  C.       That each Borrower is in good standing.

                  D.       Borrowers hereby represent and warrant that, after
giving effect to the amendments contained herein, (a) execution, delivery and
performance of this Amendment, and any other documents and instruments required
under this Amendment, or the Loan Agreement are within each Borrower's corporate
powers, have been duly authorized, are not in contravention of law or the terms
of any Borrower's Articles of Organization or Bylaws and do not require the
consent or approval of any governmental body, agency or authority; and this
Amendment and any other documents and instruments required under this Amendment,
the Loan Agreement or the Note will be valid and binding in accordance with
their terms; and (b) no Event of Default, or condition or event which, with the
giving of notice or the running of time, or both, would constitute a Event of
Default under the Note, has occurred and is continuing as of the date hereof.

                  E.       The Assignment of Equipment Leases and Security
Agreement dated July 17, 1996, as amended April 28, 1997 ("Security Agreement"),
is valid and enforceable in accordance with its terms. Standard Federal's
security interests in the collateral described in the Security Agreement are
valid and perfected and Borrowers are not aware of any claims or interest in
such collateral proper or paramount to Standard Federal's.

                  F.       The execution of this Amendment shall not be deemed
to be a waiver of any Event of Default.

                  G.       Each Borrower waives, discharges, and forever
releases Standard Federal, Participants, Standard Federal's and Participants'
employees, officers, directors, attorneys, stockholders, and their successors
and assigns, from and of any and all claims, causes of action, allegations or
assertions that any Borrower has or may have had at any time up through and
including the date of this Amendment, against any or all of the foregoing,
regardless of whether any such claims, causes of action, allegations or
assertions are known to any Borrower or whether any such claims, causes of
action, allegations or assertions arose as result of Standard Federal's actions
or omissions in connection with the Note, or any amendments, extensions or
modifications thereto, or Standard Federal's administration of the debt
evidenced by the Note or otherwise.

         This Amendment may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall
constitute an original and all of which shall together constitute one and the
same Amendment.

         IN WITNESS the due execution hereof as of the day and year first above
written.
