WHEREAS, the Lenders are prepared to advance to the Company the respective amounts as identified on the Schedule of Initial Investors attached hereto (the "Schedule of Initial Investors"); WHEREAS, the parties intend for the Company to issue in return for such advances convertible promissory notes and warrants to purchase Common Stock of the Company ("Common Stock"); and WHEREAS, the parties hereto wish to provide for the sale and issuance of such notes and warrants in return for advances to the Company; NOW, THEREFORE, THE PARTIES HEREBY AGREE AS FOLLOWS: 1. Amount and Terms of the Notes; Terms of Warrants. ------------------------------------------------ 1.1 Promissory Notes and Warrants. In return for the advance by each ----------------------------- Initial Investor or "Lender" as set forth on the Schedule of Initial Investors, the Company shall sell and issue to such Lender a convertible promissory note in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (a "Note") and a warrant to purchase --------- Common Stock of the Company in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (a --------- "Warrant"). Each such Note shall have a principal balance equal to ninety-nine and one half percent (99.5%) of the advance to which it relates and shall be dated as of the date such advance is made to the Company. The Company and the Lenders agree that the purchase price and fair market value as of the date hereof of each such Warrant is deemed to equal one half of one percent (.5%) of the advance to which such Warrant relates. 1.2 Closing. The closing (the "Closing") of the purchase of the ------- Notes and Warrants in return for advances to the Company shall take place at the offices of Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison, Two Embarcadero Place, 2200 Geng Road, Palo Alto, California, at 10:00 A.M., on August 26, 1994, or at such other time and place as the Company and a majority in interest of the Lenders agree upon orally or in writing. At the Closing, the Company shall deliver to each Lender an executed Note and Warrant in return for the advanced amounts. 2. Representations and Warranties of the Company. In connection with --------------------------------------------- the transactions provided for herein, the Company hereby represents and warrants to the Lenders that: 2.1 Organization, Good Standing, and Qualification. The Company is a ---------------------------------------------- corporation duly organized, validly existing, and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware and has all requisite corporate power and authority to carry on its business as now conducted. The Company is duly qualified to transact business and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the failure so to qualify would have a material adverse effect on its business or properties. 2.2 Authorization. All corporate action on the part of the Company, ------------- its officers, directors, and stockholders necessary for the authorization, execution, and delivery of this Agreement, the performance of all obligations of the Company hereunder, and the authorization, issuance (or reservation for issuance), and delivery of the Notes and the Warrants has been taken or will be taken prior to the Closing; provided however, that the Company has not obtained -------- ------- the approval of the Company's stockholders required to permit the Company to create, authorize and issue the equity securities of the Company ("Equity Securities") issuable upon the conversion of the Notes and to perform any related obligations under the Notes ("Stockholder Approval"). 2.3 Valid Issuance of Capital Stock. Subject to obtaining ------------------------------- Stockholder Approval, the Equity Securities issuable upon the conversion of the Notes and the exercise of the Warrants, and any shares of Common Stock that may be issuable upon the conversion of such shares of Equity Securities, when issued, sold, and delivered in accordance with the terms hereof for the consideration expressed herein and in the Notes and the Warrants, as applicable, will be duly and validly issued, fully paid, and nonassessable and, based in part upon the representations of the Lenders in this Agreement, will be issued in compliance with all applicable federal and state securities laws. 3. Representations and Warranties of the Lenders. In connection --------------------------------------------- with the transactions provided for herein, each Lender hereby represents and warrants to the Company that: 3.1 Authorization. This Agreement constitutes such Lender's valid ------------- and legally binding obligation, enforceable in accordance with its terms. 3.2 Purchase Entirely for Own Account. Lender acknowledges that this --------------------------------- Agreement is made with Lender in reliance upon Lender's representation to the Company that the Note, the Equity Securities issuable upon conversion of the Note, any shares of Common Stock that may be issuable upon the conversion of such Equity Securities, the Warrant and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrant (collectively, the "Securities") will be acquired for investment for Lender's own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof, and that Lender has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same. By executing this Agreement, Lender further represents that Lender does not have any contract, undertaking, agreement, or arrangement with any person to sell, transfer, or grant participations to such person or to any third person, with respect to the Securities. Lender represents that it has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement. 3.3 Disclosure of Information. Lender acknowledges that it has ------------------------- received all the information it considers necessary or appropriate for deciding whether to acquire the Securities. Lender further represents that it has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the Company regarding the terms and conditions of the offering of the Securities. 3.4 Investment Experience. Lender is an investor in securities of --------------------- companies in the development stage and acknowledges that it is able to fend for itself, can bear the economic risk of its investment, and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the investment in the Securities. If other than an individual, Lender also represents it has not been organized solely for the purpose of acquiring the Securities. 3.5 Accredited Investor. Lender is an "accredited investor" within ------------------- the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), as presently in effect. 3.6 Restricted Securities.

In this connection, Lender represents that it is familiar with SEC Rule 144, as presently in effect, and understands the resale limitations imposed thereby and by the Act. 3.7 Further Limitations on Disposition. Without in any way limiting ---------------------------------- the representations set forth above, Lender further agrees not to make any disposition of all or any portion of the Securities unless and until the transferee has agreed in writing for the benefit of the Company to be bound by this Section 3 and: (a) There is then in effect a Registration Statement under the Act covering such proposed disposition and such disposition is made in accordance with such Registration Statement; or (b) (i) Lender shall have notified the Company of the proposed disposition and shall have furnished the Company with a detailed statement of the circumstances surrounding the proposed disposition, and (ii) if reasonably requested by the Company, Lender shall have furnished the Company with an opinion of counsel, reasonably satisfactory to the Company, that such disposition will not require registration of such shares under the Act. It is agreed that the Company will not require opinions of counsel for transactions made pursuant to Rule 144 except in extraordinary circumstances. 3.8 Legends. It is understood that the Securities may bear one or ------- all of the following legends: (a) "These securities have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933. They may not be sold, offered for sale, pledged, hypothecated, or otherwise transferred except pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933 or an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Company that registration is not required under such Act or unless sold pursuant to Rule 144 under such Act." (b) Any legend required by the laws of the State of California or other states, including any legend required by the California Department of Corporations and Sections 417 and 418 of the California Corporations Code. 4. California Commissioner of Corporations. --------------------------------------- 4.1 Corporate Securities Law.

This amendment to the definition of a "Registrable Security" is made pursuant to Section 7.16 of that Series C Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement. 9. Remedies. If the Company shall fail to perform or observe any --------- of the covenants, agreements or provisions set forth or incorporated by reference in this Agreement, then and in each and every such case, the majority in interest of the Lenders as a group may proceed to enforce performance of such obligations in such manner as it may elect and may proceed to protect and enforce its rights by suit in equity, action at law and/or other appropriate proceeding for performance of such obligations, provided that any such default may be waived, and any provision of this Agreement may be modified by a written waiver or agreement executed by the Company and the majority in interest of the Lenders. 10.
