                 Price, 70% proportion thereof payable to Nissan shall be in
                 Japanese Yen, and 30% proportion thereof payable to SDRC shall

                 referred to in Articles 7, 8, 11 and 12 hereof.
3.3.       Termination.  In the event that the Closing shall not have taken
           place on or before December 29, 2000, all of the rights and
           obligations of the parties under this Agreement shall terminate
           without liability unless otherwise agreed to in writing between the
           Seller and the Buyer; provided, however, that if the failure to meet
           the Closing is caused by reason of a default or breach by any party
           hereto, such party shall be liable for any damages arising out of the
           termination of this Agreement. A default or breach by SDRC shall not
           be deemed a default or breach by Nissan nor shall a default or breach
           by Nissan be deemed a breach or default by SDRC, even if the
           obligation breached is that of Seller.

           dispositions made prior to Closing in the ordinary course of
           business, free and clear of all security interests, mortgages, liens,
           pledges or encumbrances of any kind. Schedule 5.9 to this Agreement
           lists all current customers of the Company and all former customers
           of the Company with whom the Company has done business during the
           past three (3) years.
5.10.      Leases. Schedule 5.10 to this Agreement lists all leases for real
           estate and personal property to which the Company is a party
           ("Leases"). The Seller has delivered to the Buyer a true and complete
           copy of each Lease. All the Leases are valid and binding obligations
           of the parties thereto and no event of default exists under any Lease
           nor does any condition exist which after the passage of time or
           otherwise would allow any party to any Lease to declare an event of
           default thereunder.
5.11.      Intellectual Property. Schedule 5.11 to this Agreement lists all of
           the Company's intellectual property, software programs, including

           and "Estech Ride", trademarks, service marks, copyrights and patents
           ("Intellectual Property"). Except as otherwise indicated on said
           Schedule 5.11, the Company is the sole and exclusive owner of all
           Intellectual Property, including without limitation, all rights to
           the source code and the object code of all software listed on said
           Schedule. There have been no claims and to the knowledge of Seller,
           there is no basis for any claim, challenging the scope, validity,
           ownership or enforceability of any of the Intellectual Property. To
           the best of the Seller's knowledge, no claim has been made that the
           Intellectual Property or any activity of the Company infringes upon
           the proprietary rights of any third party or that any activity of any
           third party infringes upon the Intellectual Property of the Company.

           Company is a party or as to which the Company has any liabilities or
           obligations providing for payments to or liabilities of the Company,
           including any agreement(s) between the Company and Nissan and between
           the Company and SDRC (collectively, the "Material Contracts"). With
           respect to the Material Contracts:
           (a)   all of the Material Contracts are valid and binding obligations
                 of the parties thereto in accordance with their respective
                 terms and there has occurred no event which would constitute a
                 breach of or default by the Material Company or any other party
                 under any of such Material Contracts; and
           (b)   each Material Contract will remain in full force and effect,
                 without any restriction, limitation, cost, penalty or consent,
                 notwithstanding the acquisition of the Shares by Buyer
                 hereunder; and
           (c)   Seller has heretofore delivered to Buyer true and complete
                 copies of each written Material Contract.

5.13.      Employees; Employee Benefits. The Seller has delivered, or has caused
           the Company to deliver, to the Buyer true and complete list

           Employees. Said list also includes the age, date of hire, position,
           total amount of salary and bonus which has been actually paid during
           the period from April 2000 through October 2000 of each such
           Employee. No Employee of the Company has any employment agreement or
           other arrangement with the Company except as disclosed in said list.
           All accrued Employee benefits and liabilities are shown on the
           Initial Balance Sheet and will be shown on the Closing Balance Sheet
           in accordance with generally accepted Japanese accounting principles
           consistently applied.
5.14.      Insurance. Schedule 5.14 to this Agreement contains a true and
           complete list of all insurance policies owned or held by the Company
           ("Policies") and sets forth the type and extent of coverage for each
           such Policy. All Policies are in full force and effect. All premiums
           with respect thereto covering all periods up to and including the
           Closing Date have been paid and no notice of cancellation or
           termination has been received by the Company with respect to any
           Policy. Such Policies are sufficient for compliance with all
           requirements of law and all agreements to which the Company is a
           party, are valid and enforceable and will remain in full force and
           effect through the Closing Date without the payment of additional
           premiums. No claims under any current or former insurance policy are
           currently pending.
 5.15.     Undisclosed Liabilities. As of the date of the Initial Balance Sheet,
           there were, and as of the date of the Closing Balance Sheet, there
           will be no liabilities or obligations of the Company of any kind or
           nature whatsoever which have not been adequately reflected and/or
           disclosed on such Balance Sheets. Since the date of the Closing
           Balance Sheet, there will have been no liabilities or obligations
           incurred outside of the usual and ordinary course of business of the
           Company. The Company has not guaranteed any debt or obligation of any
           third party. The Company does not currently engage in "design
           activities" and has not in the past engaged in such "design
           activities" for Nissan or any other customer which could give rise to
           a claim that the Company has partial design responsibility for any
           product.
 5.16.     Taxes. The Company has prepared and timely filed all tax returns and
           reports required by law and all taxes shown thereon to be due have
           been timely paid in full.
 5.17.     Accounts Receivable. The amounts shown as accounts receivable on the
           Closing Balance Sheet will be accurate in all respects and determined
           in accordance with generally accepted Japanese accounting principals
           consistently applied. To the best of the Seller's knowledge, all of
           such accounts receivable will have arisen in the ordinary course of
           the Company's business and are valid and collectible in the ordinary
           course and not subject to any counter claims or set offs.

           respects, with all applicable laws, regulations, orders and other
           requirements of governmental authorities and the Company has not
           received any notice of violation of any applicable law or regulation
           relating to its assets or Business. Further, the Company is currently
           in compliance, in all material respects, with all applicable
           environmental laws and has never violated any applicable
           environmental law and has not received any notice of noncompliance
           with any environmental law in connection with the operation of its
           Business.
 5.19.     Bank Accounts. Schedule 5.19 to this Agreement sets forth a full and
           complete list of all of the Company's bank accounts and the names of
           the persons authorized to draw thereon.

           the Closing Date:
           (a)   There have not been any material adverse changes, either

           (c)   No transaction or material contract has been entered into by
                 the Company, other than in the usual and ordinary course of
                 business;
           (d)   There has been no casualty affecting the Company or loss,
                 damage or destruction to any of its properties, whether or not
                 covered by or compensated under any insurance policy of the
                 Company;

                 distribution in respect to the capital stock of the Company;

                 liabilities which (i) are not for borrowed money, (ii) were
                 incurred in the usual and ordinary course of business, and

                 properties or results of operations of the Company;

           (g)   The Company has not mortgaged, pledged or otherwise encumbered

                 the Company, except for changes required under the generally
                 accepted Japanese accounting principles.

10.1.      Indemnification Obligations.  SDRC and/or Nissan (i) proportionally
           in 30% (for SDRC): 70% (for Nissan) basis, not jointly and severally
           to the extent they each are responsible, and (ii) SDRC or Nissan to
           the extent only one shall have committed an indemnifiable event set
           forth in (i) - (iii) below (one or two "indemnifying party") shall
           indemnify and hold harmless the Buyer, and the Buyer (another
           "indemnifying party") shall indemnify and hold harmless the Seller,
           from, against and in respect of any and all material damages, losses,
           deficiencies, liabilities, costs and expenses resulting from,
           relating to or arising out of any (i) material misrepresentation,
           (ii) material breach of warranty, or (iii) non-fulfillment of any
           material agreement or covenant on the part of such indemnifying party
           or parties hereunder. For purposes of this Section 10.1, the term
           "material" shall mean any matter subject to this Article 10 involving
           Yen 2,700,000 or more.
10.2.      Method of Asserting Claims.  All claims for indemnification under
           this Article 10 shall be asserted and resolved as follows:
          (a)    In the event that any claim or demand for which an indemnifying
                 party would be liable to the indemnified party under Section
                 10.1 above is asserted against or sought to be collected by a
                 third party, the indemnified party shall promptly provide the
                 indemnifying party with notice of such claim or demand (the
                 "Claim Notice"), specifying the nature of such claim or demand
                 and the amount or the estimated amount thereof to the extent
                 then feasible (which estimate shall not be conclusive of the
                 final amount of such claim or demand). The indemnifying party
                 shall have one (1) month from its receipt of the Claim Notice
                 (the "Notice Period") to notify the indemnified party (i)
                 whether or not the indemnifying party disputes all or part of
                 its liability to the indemnified party hereunder with respect
                 to such claim or demand and (ii) whether or not it desires, at
                 its sole cost and expense, to defend the indemnified party
                 against such claim or demand; provided, however, that the
                 indemnified party is hereby authorized prior to and during the
                 Notice Period to file any motion, answer or other pleading
                 necessary or appropriate to protect its interests. If and to
                 the extent that the indemnifying party notifies the indemnified
                 party within the Notice Period that it does not dispute such
                 indemnification liability, all or such part of the
                 indemnification liability shall

                 be conclusively deemed to be a liability of the indemnifying
                 party hereunder. If the indemnifying party notifies the
                 indemnified party within the Notice Period that it desires to
                 defend the indemnified party against such claim or demand, it
                 may participate in the defense thereof, at its sole cost and
                 expense. If the indemnifying party participates in the defense
                 of any such claim or demand, the indemnified party shall
                 cooperate in the defense. Irrespective of whether the
                 indemnifying party has participated in the defense or
                 settlement of any such claim or demand as to which it has
                 disputed such indemnification liability, any amount which must
                 be paid as a result of such claim or demand shall, subject to a
                 determination that the disputed liability is covered by these
                 indemnification provisions, be a liability of the indemnifying
                 party hereunder. Neither party shall settle, compromise or
                 discharge any third party claim or demand for which indemnity
                 is required hereunder without the consent of the other such
                 party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.
           (b)   In the event that the indemnified party should have a claim
                 against the indemnifying party hereunder which does not involve
                 a claim or demand being asserted against or sought to be
                 collected from it by a third party, the indemnified party shall
                 promptly send a Claim Notice with respect to such claim to the
                 indemnifying party. If the indemnifying party does not notify
                 the indemnified party within the Notice Period that it disputes
                 such claim, the amount of such claim shall be conclusively
                 deemed a liability of the indemnifying party hereunder.
           (c)   Nothing herein shall be deemed to prevent any indemnified party
                 from making a claim hereunder for potential or contingent
                 claims or demands provided the Claim Notice sets forth the
                 specific basis for any such potential or contingent claim or
                 demand and the estimated amount thereof to the extent then
                 feasible and the indemnified party has reasonable grounds to
                 believe that such a claim or demand will be made.
10.3.      Payment.
           (a)   In the event that any party is required to make any payment
                 under this Article 10, such party shall promptly pay the
                 indemnified party the amount so required. If there should be a
                 dispute as to the amount or manner of determination of any
                 indemnity obligation owed under this Article 10, the party from
                 which indemnification is due shall nevertheless pay when due
                 such portion, if any, of the obligation as shall not be subject
                 to dispute. The difference, if any, between the amount of the

                 interest as provided in Section 10.3(c) below. Upon the payment
                 in full of any claim, either by setoff or otherwise, the party
                 making payment shall be subrogated to the rights of the
                 indemnified party against any person, firm, corporation or
                 other entity with respect to the subject matter of such claim.
           (b)   Each indemnifying party shall make full and immediate payment
                 to the indemnified party of any items as to which the
                 indemnified party is entitled to payment under this Article 10.
           (c)   If all or part of any indemnification obligation under this
                 Agreement is not paid when due, then the indemnifying party
                 shall pay the indemnified party or parties interest on the
                 unpaid amount of the obligation for each day from the date the
                 amount became due until payment in full at the fluctuating rate
                 per annum which at all times shall be the rate of interest with
                 respect to Yen generally charged from time to time by a leading
                 Japanese bank and publicly announced by such bank as its
                 so-called "prime rate."
10.4.      Limitation.  The aggregate maximum amount of indemnification by the
           Seller to the Buyer under this Article 10 and any other
           responsibilities under this Agreement shall be the amount equivalent
           to thirty percent (30%) of the Purchase Price. Seller shall have no
           indemnification obligation except and only to the extent the
           aggregate indemnity obligation under this Article 10 and any other
           responsibilities under this Agreement exceeds Yen 2,700,000.
