                         2. LOANS AND LETTERS OF CREDIT

                 2.1 Total Facility. Subject to all of the terms and conditions
of this Agreement, the Lender shall make available a total credit facility of up
to the Total Facility for Borrower's use from time to time during the term of
this Agreement. The Total Facility shall be comprised of a revolving line of
credit and letters of credit up to the limits of the Availability, as described
in Sections 2.2 and 2.3.

                 2.2 Revolving Loans. The Lender shall, upon the Borrower's
request from time to time, make revolving loans (the "Revolving Loans") to the
Borrower up to the limits of the Availability. The Lender, in its discretion,
may elect to exceed the limits of the Availability on one or more occasions, but
if it does so, the Lender shall not be deemed thereby to have changed the limits
of the Availability or to be obligated to exceed the limits of the Availability
on any other occasion. If the unpaid balance of the Revolving Loans exceeds the
Availability (determined for this purpose as if the amount of the Revolving
Loans were zero), then the Lender may refuse to make or otherwise restrict
Revolving Loans on such terms as the Lender determines until such excess has
been eliminated. The Borrower may request Revolving Loans either orally or in
writing. Each oral request for

a Revolving Loan shall be conclusively presumed to be made by a person
authorized by the Borrower to do so and the crediting of a Revolving Loan to the
Borrower's deposit account, or transmittal to such Person as the Borrower shall
direct, shall conclusively establish the obligation of the Borrower to repay
such Revolving Loan as provided herein. The Lender will charge all Revolving
Loans and other Obligations to a loan account of the Borrower maintained with
the Lender. All fees, commissions, costs, expenses, and other charges under or
pursuant to the Loan Documents, and all payments made and out-of-pocket expenses
incurred by Lender pursuant to the Loan Documents, will be charged as Revolving
Loans to the Borrower's loan account as of the date due from the Borrower or the
date paid or incurred by the Lender, as the case may be.

                 2.3 Letters of Credit. The Lender shall, upon the Borrower's
request from time to time, cause documentary and standby letters of credit to be
issued for the Borrower's account (the "Letters of Credit"). The Lender will not
cause to be opened any Letter of Credit if: (a) the maximum face amount of the
requested Letter of Credit, plus the aggregate undrawn face amount of all
outstanding Letters of Credit, would exceed $1,500,000; or (b) the maximum face
amount of the requested Letter of Credit, and all commissions, fees, and charges
due from the Borrower to the Lender in connection with the opening thereof,
would cause the Availability to be exceeded at such time. The Letters of Credit
shall be governed by a Letter of Credit Financing Agreement Supplement to Loan
and Security Agreement between the Lender and the Borrower ("Letter of Credit
Agreement"), in addition to the terms and conditions hereof. All payments made
and expenses incurred by the Lender pursuant to or in connection with the
Letters of Credit and the Letter of Credit Agreement will be charged to the
Borrower's loan account as Revolving Loans.

                          3. INTEREST AND OTHER CHARGES

                 3.1 Interest. (a) The Borrower shall pay the Lender interest on
the unpaid principal balance of the Revolving Loans (including, to the extent
permitted by law, on interest thereon not paid when due) at a fluctuating per
annum rate equal to one percent (1.0%) plus the Reference Rate. Each change in
the Reference Rate shall be reflected in the foregoing interest rates as of the
effective date of such change. Interest charges shall be computed on the basis
of a year of 360 days and actual days elapsed and will be payable to the Lender
on the first day of each month hereafter.

                          (b) If any Event of Default occurs, then, from the
date such Event of Default occurs until it is cured, or if not cured until all
Obligations are paid and performed in full, the Borrower will pay interest on
the unpaid principal balance of the Revolving Loans at a per annum rate two
percent (2.0%) greater than the rate of interest otherwise specified herein, and
the Letter of Credit Fee shall be increased to three and one-half percent (3.5%)
per annum for standby Letters of Credit and two and one-half percent (2.5%) per
annum for documentary Letters of Credit.

                          (c) In the event the Borrower and its Subsidiaries, on
a consolidated basis, incur net quarterly losses, as determined in accordance
with GAAP, in excess of $1,000,000 on a cumulative basis for the period
beginning July 1, 1995, the interest on the unpaid principal balance of the
Revolving Loans shall increase, without further notice, to a fluctuating per
annum rate equal to one and one-half percent (1.5%) plus the Reference Rate,
effective as of the first day of the Fiscal Quarter in which the Borrower and
its Subsidiaries have incurred such cumulative quarterly losses. In the event
that, following the imposition of the increased interest rate provided for in
the previous sentence, the Borrower and its Subsidiaries, on a consolidated
basis, reduce their cumulative quarterly losses from July 1, 1995 to the date of
calculation to $500,000 or less, the interest rate shall revert, without further
notice, to a fluctuating per annum rate equal to one percent (1%) plus the
Reference Rate, effective as of the first day of the Fiscal Quarter in which the
Borrower and its Subsidiaries have reduced such cumulative losses.

                 3.2 Unused Line Fee. For every month during the term of this
Agreement, the Borrower shall pay the Lender a fee (the "Unused Line Fee") in an
amount equal to three-eighths of one percent (0.375%) per annum, multiplied by
the average daily outstanding amount by which the Total Facility exceeds the sum
of (i) the average daily outstanding amount of Revolving Loans and (ii) the
undrawn face amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit during such month, with
the unpaid balance calculated for this purpose by applying payments immediately
upon receipt. Such a fee, if any, shall be calculated on the basis of a year of
three hundred sixty (360) days and actual days elapsed, and shall be payable to
the Lender on the first day of each month with respect to the prior month.

                 3.3 Maximum Interest Rate. In no event shall any interest rate
provided for hereunder exceed the maximum rate permissible for corporate
borrowers under applicable law for loans of the type provided for hereunder (the
"Maximum Rate"). If, in any month, any interest rate, absent such limitation,
would have exceeded the Maximum Rate, then the interest rate for that month
shall be the Maximum Rate, and, if in future months, that interest rate would
otherwise be less than the Maximum Rate, then that interest rate shall remain at
the Maximum Rate until such time as the amount of interest paid hereunder equals
the amount of interest which would have been paid if the same had not been
limited by the Maximum Rate. In the event that, upon payment in full of the
Obligations under this Agreement, the total amount of interest paid or accrued
under the terms of this Agreement is less than the total amount of interest
which would, but for this Section 3.3, have been paid or accrued if the interest
rates otherwise set forth in this Agreement had at all times been in effect,
then the Borrower shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, pay the
Lender an amount equal to the difference between (a) the lesser of (i) the
amount of interest which would have been charged if the Maximum Rate had, at all
times, been in effect or (ii) the amount of interest which would have accrued
had the interest rates otherwise set forth in this Agreement, at all times, been
in effect and (b) the amount of interest actually paid or accrued under this
Agreement. In the event that a court determines that the Lender has received
interest and other charges hereunder in excess of the Maximum Rate, such excess
shall be deemed received on account of, and shall automatically be applied to
reduce, the Obligations other than interest, in the inverse order of

maturity, and if there are no Obligations outstanding, the Lender shall refund
to the Borrower such excess.

                 3.4 Facility Fee. The Borrower will pay the Lender on the
Closing Date a facility fee of $56,250 (the "Facility Fee"). The Lender and the
Borrower agree that the Facility Fee shall be financed by the Lender as a
Revolving Loan.

                 3.5 Capital Adequacy. If as a result of any regulatory change
directly or indirectly affecting the Lender or any of the Lender's affiliated
companies there shall be imposed or deemed applicable any tax, reserve, special
deposit, minimum capital, capital ratio, or similar requirement against or with
respect to or measured by reference to loans made or to be made hereunder, or to
Letters of Credit issued pursuant to the Letter of Credit Agreement, and the
result shall be to increase the cost to the Lender or to any of the Lender's
affiliated companies of making or maintaining any loan or Letter of Credit
hereunder, or reduce any amount receivable, or shall be the result of the
Lender's or the Lender's affiliated company's reasonable allocation among all
affected customers of the aggregate of such increase or reductions resulting
from such event, then, within ten (10) days after receipt by the Borrower of a
certificate from Lender containing the information described in this Section 3.5
which shall be delivered to the Borrower, the Borrower agrees from time to time
to pay the Lender such additional amounts as shall be sufficient to compensate
the Lender or any of the Lender's affiliated companies for such increased costs
or reductions in amounts which the Lender determines in the Lender's sole
discretion are material. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all such amounts shall
be subject to the provisions of Section 3.3. The certificate requesting
compensation under this Section 3.5 shall identify the regulatory change which
has occurred, the requirements which have been imposed, modified or deemed
applicable, the amounts of such additional cost or reduction in the amount
receivable and the way in which such amount has been calculated.

                           4. PAYMENTS AND PREPAYMENTS

                 4.1 Revolving Loans. The Borrower shall repay the outstanding
principal balance of the Revolving Loans, plus all accrued but unpaid interest
thereon, upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason. In addition, and
without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Borrower shall pay to the
Lender, on demand, the amount by which the unpaid principal balance of the
Revolving Loans at any time exceeds the Availability (determined for this
purpose as if the amount of the Revolving Loans were zero).

                 4.2 Place and Form of Payments; Extension of Time. All payments
of principal, interest, premium, and other sums due to the Lender shall be made
at the Lender's address set forth in Section 14.11. Except for Proceeds received
directly by the Lender, all such payments shall be made in immediately available
funds. If any payment of principal, interest, premium, or other sum to be made
hereunder becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, the due
date of such payment shall be

extended to the next succeeding Business Day and interest thereon shall be
payable at the applicable interest rate during such extension.

                 4.3 Application and Reversal of Payments. The Lender shall
determine in its sole discretion the order and manner in which Proceeds of
Collateral and other payments that the Lender receives are applied to the
Revolving Loan, interest thereon, and the other Obligations, and the Borrower
hereby irrevocably waives the right to direct the application of any payment or
Proceeds. The Lender shall have the continuing and exclusive right to apply and
reverse and reapply any and all such Proceeds and payments to any portion of the
Obligations.

                 4.4 Indemnity for Returned Payments. IF AFTER RECEIPT OF ANY
PAYMENT WHICH IS APPLIED TO THE PAYMENT OF ALL OR ANY PART OF THE OBLIGATIONS,
THE LENDER IS FOR ANY REASON COMPELLED TO SURRENDER SUCH PAYMENT TO ANY PERSON
BECAUSE SUCH PAYMENT IS INVALIDATED, DECLARED FRAUDULENT, SET ASIDE, DETERMINED
TO BE VOID OR VOIDABLE AS A PREFERENCE, IMPERMISSIBLE SETOFF, OR A DIVERSION OF
TRUST FUNDS, OR FOR ANY OTHER REASON, THEN: THE OBLIGATIONS OR PART THEREOF
INTENDED TO BE SATISFIED SHALL BE REVIVED AND CONTINUE AND THIS AGREEMENT SHALL
CONTINUE IN FULL FORCE AS IF SUCH PAYMENT HAD NOT BEEN RECEIVED BY THE LENDER
AND THE BORROWER SHALL BE LIABLE TO PAY TO THE LENDER AND HEREBY DOES INDEMNIFY
THE LENDER AND HOLD THE LENDER HARMLESS FOR THE AMOUNT OF SUCH PAYMENT
SURRENDERED. The provisions of this Section 4.4 shall be and remain effective
notwithstanding any contrary action which may have been taken by the Lender in
reliance upon such payment, and any such contrary action so taken shall be
without prejudice to the Lender's rights under this Agreement and shall be
deemed to have been conditioned upon such payment having become final and
irrevocable. The provisions of this Section 4.4 shall survive the termination of
this Agreement.

                    5. BOOKS AND RECORDS; MONTHLY STATEMENTS.

         5.1 Lender's Books and Records. The Borrower agrees that the Lender's
books and records showing the Obligations and the transactions pursuant to this
Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be admissible in any action or
proceeding arising therefrom, and shall constitute prima facie proof thereof,
irrespective of whether any Obligation is also evidenced by a promissory note or
other instrument.

         5.2 Lender's Monthly Statements. The Lender will provide to the
Borrower a monthly statement of Loans, payments, and other transactions pursuant
to this Agreement. Such statement shall be deemed correct, accurate, and binding
on the Borrower and as an account stated (except for reversals and
reapplications of payments made as provided in Section 4.3 and corrections of
errors discovered by the Lender), unless the Borrower notifies the Lender in
writing to the contrary within thirty (30) days after such statement is
rendered. In the event a timely written notice of objections is given by the
Borrower,

only the items to which exception is expressly made will be considered to be
disputed by the Borrower.

received by, or in transit to, the Lender from or for the Borrower, whether for
safekeeping, pledge, custody, transmission, collection or otherwise, including,
without limitation, all of the Borrower's deposit accounts, credits, and
balances with the Lender and all claims of the Borrower against the Lender at
any time existing; (iii) all of the Borrower's deposit accounts with any
financial institutions with which the Borrower maintains deposits; and (iv) all
books, records and other Property relating to or referring to any of the
foregoing, including, without limitation, all books, records, ledger cards, data
processing records, computer software and other property and general intangibles
at any time evidencing or relating to the Receivables, Inventory, Equipment,
Assigned Contracts, Proprietary Rights, Proceeds, and other property referred to
above (all of the foregoing and all other property in which the Lender may at
any time be granted a Lien, being herein collectively referred to as the
"Collateral"). The Lender shall have all of the rights of a secured party with
respect to the Collateral under the UCC and other applicable laws.

                          (b) All Obligations shall constitute a single loan
secured by the Collateral. The Lender may, in its sole discretion, (i) exchange,
waive, or release any of the Collateral, (ii) when an Event of Default occurs
and is continuing, apply Collateral and direct the order or manner of sale
thereof as the Lender may determine, and (iii) when an Event of Default occurs
and is continuing, settle, compromise, collect, or otherwise liquidate any
Collateral in any manner, all without affecting the Obligations or the Lender's
right to take any other action with respect to any other Collateral.

                 6.2 Perfection and Protection of Security Interest. The
Borrower shall, at its expense, perform all reasonable steps requested by the
Lender at any time to perfect, maintain, protect, and enforce the Security
Interest including, without limitation: (a) executing and recording of the
Patent and Trademark Assignments and executing and filing financing or
continuation statements, and amendments thereof, in form and substance
satisfactory to the Lender; (b) delivering, upon request, to the Lender the
original certificates of title for motor vehicles with the Security Interest
properly endorsed thereon; (c) delivering, upon request, to the Lender the
originals of all instruments other than negotiable instruments received in the
ordinary course of business, documents, and chattel paper, and all other
Collateral of which the Lender determines it should have physical possession in
order to perfect and protect the Security Interest therein, duly endorsed or
assigned to the Lender without restriction; (d) delivering, upon request, to the
Lender warehouse receipts covering any portion of the Collateral located in
warehouses and for

which warehouse receipts are issued; (e) when an Event of Default occurs and is
continuing, transferring Inventory to warehouses designated by the Lender; (f)
placing notations on the Borrower's books of account to disclose the Security
Interest; (g) executing and delivering to the Lender a security agreement
relating to the Reversions in form and substance satisfactory to the Lender; (h)
delivering, upon request, to the Lender all letters of credit on which the
Borrower is named beneficiary; and (i) taking such other reasonable steps as are
deemed necessary by the Lender to maintain the Security Interest. To the extent
permitted by applicable law, the Lender may file, without the Borrower's
signature, one or more financing statements disclosing the Security Interest.
The Borrower agrees that a carbon, photographic, photostatic, or other
reproduction of this Agreement or of a financing statement is sufficient as a
financing statement. If any Collateral is at any time in the possession or
control of any warehouseman, bailee or any of the Borrower's agents or
processors, then the Borrower shall notify the Lender thereof and shall notify
such Person of the Security Interest in such Collateral and, upon the Lender's
request when an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, instruct such Person
to hold all such Collateral for the Lender's account subject to the Lender's
instructions. If at any time any Collateral is located on any Premises that are
not owned by the Borrower, then the Borrower shall use reasonable efforts to
obtain written waivers, in form and substance satisfactory to the Lender, of all
present and future Liens to which the owner or lessor or any mortgagee of such
premises may be entitled to assert against the Collateral. From time to time,
the Borrower shall, upon Lender's request, execute and deliver confirmatory
written instruments pledging to the Lender the Collateral, but the Borrower's
failure to do so shall not affect or limit the Security Interest or the Lender's
other rights in and to the Collateral. So long as this Agreement is in effect
and until all Obligations have been fully satisfied, the Security Interest shall
continue in full force and effect in all Collateral (whether or not deemed
eligible for the purpose of calculating the Availability or as the basis for any
advance, loan, extension of credit, or other financial accommodation).

                 6.3 Location of Collateral. The Borrower represents and
warrants to the Lender that: (a) Schedule 6.3 hereto is a correct and
complete list of the Borrower's chief executive office, the location of its
books and records, the locations of the Collateral, and the location's of all of
its other places of business and (b) Schedule 6.3 correctly identifies
any of such facilities and locations that are now owned by the Borrower and sets
forth the names of the owners and lessors or sub-lessors of such facilities and
locations. The Borrower covenants and agrees that it will not maintain any
Collateral at any location other than those listed on Schedule 6.3, and
it will not otherwise change or add to any of such locations, unless it gives
the Lender prior written notice thereof and executes any and all financing
statements and other documents that the Lender requests in connection therewith.

                 6.4 Title to, Liens on, and Sale and Use of Collateral.
The Borrower represents and warrants to the Lender that: (a) all Collateral is
and will continue to be owned by the Borrower free and clear of all Liens
whatsoever, except for the Security Interest and other Permitted Liens; (b) the
Security Interest will not be subject to any prior Lien except for Permitted
Liens, if any; (c) the Borrower will use, store, and maintain the Collateral
with all reasonable care and will use the Collateral for lawful purposes only;
and

(d) the Borrower will not, without the Lender's prior written approval, sell, or
dispose of or permit the sale or disposition of any Collateral, except for sales
of Inventory in the ordinary course of business and as permitted by Section
6.12. The inclusion of Proceeds in the Collateral shall not be deemed the
Lender's consent to any sale or other disposition of the Collateral except as
expressly permitted herein.

                 6.5      Intentionally Omitted.

                 6.6 Access and Examination. The Lender may at all reasonable
times have access to, examine, audit, make extracts from and inspect the
Borrower's records, files, and books of account and the Collateral and may
discuss the Borrower's affairs with the Borrower's officers and management. The
Borrower will deliver to the Lender any instrument necessary for the Lender to
obtain records from any service bureau maintaining records for the Borrower. The
Lender may, at any time when an Event of Default exists and at the Borrower's
expense, make copies of all of the Borrower's books and records, or require the
Borrower to deliver such copies to the Lender. If an Event of Default has
occurred and is continuing, the Lender may, without expense to the Lender, use
such of the Borrower's personnel, supplies, and premises as may be reasonably
necessary for maintaining or enforcing the Security Interest. Lender shall have
the right, at any time, in the name of a nominee of the Lender to verify the
validity and amount of the Accounts, by mail or telephone.

                 6.7 Insurance. The Borrower shall insure the Collateral against
loss or damage by fire with extended coverage, theft, burglary, pilferage, loss
in transit, and such other hazards as the Lender shall specify, in amounts,
under policies and by insurers acceptable to the Lender. Borrower shall also
maintain flood insurance for any Equipment and Inventory located in an area
designated as a "flood prone" or a "flood risk area," (hereinafter "SFHA"), as
defined by the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, in an amount to be
reasonably determined by the Lender. The Borrower shall cause the Lender to be
named in each such policy as secured party or mortgagee and loss payee or
additional insured, in a manner reasonably acceptable to the Lender. Each policy
of insurance shall contain a clause or endorsement requiring the insurer to give
not less than thirty (30) days prior written notice to the Lender in the event
of cancellation of the policy for any reason whatsoever and a clause or
endorsement stating that the interest of the Lender shall not be impaired or
invalidated by any act or neglect of the Borrower or the owner of any premises
where Collateral is located nor by the occupation of such premises for purposes
more hazardous than are permitted by such policy. The Borrower shall pay, upon
Lender's request, all reasonable fees incurred by the Lender to determine
whether any of the Collateral is located in a SFHA. The Borrower shall also pay
all premiums for such insurance when due, and shall deliver to the Lender
certificates of insurance and, if requested, photocopies of the policies. If the
Borrower fails to pay such fees or to procure such insurance or the premiums
therefor when due, the Lender may (but shall not be required to) do so and
charge the costs thereof to the Borrower's loan account as a Revolving Loan. The
Borrower shall promptly notify the Lender of any loss, damage, or destruction to
the Collateral or arising from its use, whether or not covered by insurance. The
Lender is hereby authorized to collect all insurance proceeds directly. After
deducting

from such proceeds the expenses, if any, incurred by Lender in the collection or
handling thereof, the Lender may apply such proceeds to the reduction of the
Obligations in such order as Lender determines, or at the Lender's option may
permit the Borrower to use such money, or any part thereof, to replace, repair,
restore or rebuild the Collateral in a diligent and expeditious manner with
materials and workmanship of substantially the same quality as existed before
the loss, damage or destruction.

                 6.8 Collateral Reporting. The Borrower will provide the Lender
with the following documents at the following times in form satisfactory to the
Lender: (a) on a weekly basis, a schedule of Accounts created since the last
such schedule; (b) on a weekly basis, a schedule or remittance advices, credit
memos and reports, and a schedule of collections of accounts receivable; (c)
upon request, copies of invoices, credit memos, shipping and delivery documents;
(d) monthly ageings of accounts receivable; (e) monthly inventory reports by
category; (f) upon request, monthly perpetual inventory reports; (g) monthly
ageings of accounts payable; (h) upon request, copies of purchase orders,
invoices, and delivery documents for Inventory and Equipment acquired by the
Borrower; (i) such other reports as to the Collateral as the Lender shall
request from time to time; and (j) certificates of an officer of the Borrower
certifying as to the foregoing. If any of the Borrower's records or reports of
the Collateral are prepared by an accounting service or other agent, the
Borrower shall, upon the request of Lender, authorize such service or agent to
deliver such records, reports, and related documents to the Lender.

                 6.9 Accounts. (a) The Borrower hereby represents and warrants
to the Lender and agrees with the Lender that: (i) each existing Account
represents, and each future Account will represent, a bona fide sale or lease
and delivery of goods by the Borrower, or rendition of services by the Borrower,
in the ordinary course of the Borrower's business; (ii) each existing Account
is, and each future Account will be, for a liquidated amount payable by the
Account Debtor thereon on the terms set forth in the invoice therefor or in the
schedule thereof delivered to the Lender, without offset, deduction, defense, or
counterclaim; (iii) no payment will be received with respect to any Account, and
no credit, discount, or extension, or agreement therefor will be granted on any
Account, except as reported to the Lender in accordance with this Agreement;
(iv) each copy of an invoice delivered to the Lender by the Borrower will be a
genuine copy of the original invoice sent to the Account Debtor named therein;
and (v) all goods described in each invoice will have been delivered to the
Account Debtor and all services of the Borrower described in each invoice will
have been performed.

                          (b) The Borrower shall not re-date any invoice or sale
or make sales on extended dating beyond that customary in the Borrower's
business or extend or modify any Account. If the Borrower becomes aware of any
matter affecting any Account, including information regarding the Account
Debtor's creditworthiness, the Borrower will promptly so advise the Lender.

                          (c) The Borrower shall not accept any note or other
instrument (except a check or other instrument for the immediate payment of
money) with respect to any Account without the Lender's written consent. If the
Lender consents to the

acceptance of any such note or other instrument, it shall be considered as
evidence of the Account and not payment thereof, and the Borrower will promptly
deliver such note or instrument to the Lender appropriately endorsed. Regardless
of the form of presentment, demand, notice of dishonor, protest, and notice of
protest with respect thereto, the Borrower will remain liable thereon until such
note or instrument is paid in full.

                          (d) The Borrower shall notify the Lender promptly of
all disputes and claims with Account Debtors and settle or adjust them at no
expense to the Lender, but no discount, credit or allowance shall be granted to
any Account Debtor without the Lender's consent, except for discounts, credits
and allowances made or given in the ordinary course of the Borrower's business.
The Borrower shall send the Lender a copy of each credit memoranda in excess of
$40,000 as soon as issued and, upon request, copies of all credit memoranda. The
Lender may at all times when an Event of Default exists hereunder settle or
adjust disputes and claims directly with customers or Account Debtors for
amounts and upon terms which the Lender considers advisable and, in all cases,
the Lender will credit the Borrower's loan account with only the net amounts
received by the Lender in payment of any Accounts.

                          (e) If an Account Debtor returns any Inventory to the
Borrower when no Event of Default exists, then the Borrower shall promptly
determine the reason for such return and shall issue a credit memorandum to the
Account Debtor in the appropriate amount. The Borrower shall immediately report
to the Lender any return involving an amount in excess of $40,000 and, upon
request, shall report all returns to the Lender on a weekly basis. Each such
report shall indicate the reasons for the returns and the locations and
condition of the returned Inventory. In the event any Account Debtor returns
Inventory to the Borrower when an Event of Default exists, the Borrower shall:
(i) hold the returned Inventory in trust for the Lender; (ii) segregate all
returned Inventory from all of its other Property; (iii) dispose of the returned
Inventory solely according to the Lender's written instructions; and (iv) not
issue any credits or allowances with respect thereto without the Lender's prior
written consent. All returned Inventory shall remain subject to the Security
Interest. Whenever any Inventory is returned, the related Account shall be
deemed ineligible, and Availability shall be adjusted accordingly.

                 6.10 Collection of Accounts; Payments. (a) Until the Lender
notifies the Borrower to the contrary, the Borrower shall make collection of all
Accounts and other Collateral for the Lender, shall receive all payments as the
Lender's trustee, and shall immediately deliver all payments to the Lender in
their original form duly endorsed in blank or deposit them into a Payment
Account established at the Lender's request, as the Lender may direct. If the
Lender requests, the Borrower shall establish a lock-box service for collections
of Accounts at a bank mutually acceptable to the Lender and the Borrower and
pursuant to documentation satisfactory to the Lender. If such lock-box service
is established, the Borrower shall instruct all Account Debtors to make all
payments directly to the address established for such service. If,
notwithstanding such instructions, the Borrower receives any Proceeds of
Accounts, it shall receive such payments as the Lender's trustee, and shall
immediately deliver such payments to the Lender in their original form duly
endorsed in blank or deposit them into a Payment Account, as the Lender may
direct.

All collections received in any such lock box or Payment Account or directly by
the Borrower or the Lender, and all funds in any Payment Account or other
account to which such collections are deposited, shall be the sole property of
the Lender and subject to the Lender's sole control. The Lender or the Lender's
designee may, when an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, , notify
obligors that the Accounts have been assigned to the Lender and of the Security
Interest therein, and may collect them directly and charge the collection costs
and expenses to the Borrower's loan account as a Revolving Loan. At the Lender's
request, the Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Lender such documents as
the Lender shall require to grant the Lender access to any post office box in
which collections of Accounts are received.

                          (b) If sales of Inventory are made for cash, the
Borrower shall immediately deliver to the Lender the identical checks, cash, or
other forms of payment which the Borrower receives.

                          (c) All payments received by the Lender on account of
Accounts or as Proceeds of other Collateral will be credited to the Borrower's
loan account (conditional upon final collection) after allowing two (2) Business
Days for collection.

                          (d) In the event the Borrower repays all of the
Obligations upon the termination of this Agreement, other than through the
Lender's receipt of payments on account of Accounts or Proceeds of other
Collateral, such payment will be credited (conditional upon final collection) to
the Borrower's loan account five (5) Business Days after the Lender's receipt
thereof.

                 6.11 Inventory. The Borrower represents and warrants to
the Lender that all of the Inventory is and will be held for sale or lease, or
to be furnished in connection with the rendition of services in the ordinary
course of the Borrower's business and is and will be fit for such purposes. The
Borrower will keep the Inventory in good and marketable condition, at its own
expense. The Borrower agrees that all Inventory will be produced in accordance
with the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended, and all rules,
regulations, and orders thereunder. The Borrower will maintain a perpetual
inventory reporting system at all times. The Borrower will conduct a physical
count of the Inventory at least once per Fiscal Year, and at such other times as
the Lender requests, and shall promptly supply the Lender with a copy of such
count accompanied by a report of the value of such Inventory (valued at the
lower of cost, on a first-in, first-out basis, or market value). The Borrower
will not, except as consistent with past practices, sell any Inventory on a
bill-and-hold, guaranteed sale, sale and return, sale on approval, consignment,
or other repurchase or return basis.

                 6.12 Equipment. The Borrower represents and warrants to
the Lender that all of the Equipment is and will be used or held for use in the
Borrower's business and is and will be fit for such purposes. The Borrower shall
keep and maintain the Equipment in good operating condition and repair (ordinary
wear and tear excepted) and shall make all necessary replacements thereof. The
Borrower shall promptly inform the Lender of any material additions to or
deletions from the Equipment. The Borrower will not, without the

Lender's prior written consent, alter or remove any identifying symbol or number
on the Equipment. Except as otherwise herein permitted, the Borrower shall not,
without the Lender's prior written consent, sell, lease as a lessor, or
otherwise dispose of any of the Equipment provided, however,
that the Borrower may dispose of obsolete or unusable Equipment in the ordinary
course of business. In the event any of the Equipment is sold, transferred or
otherwise disposed of with the Lender's prior written consent or as otherwise
permitted hereby when an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, and:
(a) such sale, transfer or disposition is effected without replacement of such
Equipment, or such Equipment is replaced by Equipment leased by the Borrower, or
by Equipment purchased by the Borrower subject to a lien or other right
constituting a Permitted Lien, then the Borrower shall deliver all of the cash
proceeds of any such sale, transfer or disposition to the Lender, which proceeds
shall be applied to the repayment of the Obligations; or (b) such sale, transfer
or disposition is made in connection with the purchase by the Borrower of
replacement Equipment (other than subject to a Permitted Lien), then the
Borrower shall use the proceeds of such sale, transfer or disposition to finance
the purchase by the Borrower of replacement Equipment and shall deliver to the
Lender written evidence of the use of the proceeds for such purchase. All
replacement Equipment purchased by the Borrower shall be free and clear of all
liens, claims and encumbrances, except for the Security Interest and other
Permitted Liens.

                 6.13 Assigned Contracts. The Borrower shall fully
perform all of its obligations under each of the Assigned Contracts, and shall
enforce all of its rights and remedies thereunder as it deems appropriate in its
business judgment and shall maintain the existence of each of the Assigned
Contracts to the extent Borrower, in the exercise of its business judgment,
believes such Assigned Contracts are necessary for its business operations. The
Borrower shall notify the Lender in writing, promptly after it becomes aware
thereof, of any event or fact which could give rise to a claim by it for
indemnification under any of the Assigned Contracts and shall diligently pursue
such right and report to the Lender on all further developments with respect
thereto. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrower
shall remit directly to the Lender, for application to the Obligations in such
order as the Lender determines, all amounts received by the Borrower as
indemnification or otherwise pursuant to the Assigned Contracts. If an Event of
Default exists, then the Lender may directly enforce such right in its own or
the Borrower's name and may enter into such settlements or other agreements with
respect thereto as the Lender reasonably determines. All amounts thereby
recovered by the Lender, after deducting Lender's reasonable costs and expenses
in connection therewith, shall be applied to the Obligations in such order as
the Lender determines. In any suit, proceeding or action brought by the Lender
under any Assigned Contract for any sum owing thereunder or to enforce any
provision thereof, the Borrower shall indemnify and hold the Lender harmless
from and against all expense, loss or damage suffered by reason of any defense,
setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, or reduction of liability whatsoever of the
obligor thereunder arising out of a breach by the Borrower of any obligation
thereunder or arising out of any other agreement, indebtedness or liability at
any time owing from the Borrower to or in favor of such obligor or its
successors. All such obligations of the Borrower shall be and remain enforceable
only against the Borrower and shall not be enforceable against the Lender.
Notwithstanding any provision hereof to the contrary, the

Borrower shall at all times remain liable to observe and perform all of its
duties and obligations under the Assigned Contracts and the Lender's exercise of
any of its rights with respect to the Collateral shall not release the Borrower
from any of such duties and obligations. The Lender shall not be obligated to
perform or fulfill any of the Borrower's duties or obligations under the
Assigned Contracts or to make any payment thereunder or to make any inquiry as
to the nature or sufficiency of any payment or Property received by it
thereunder or the sufficiency of performance by any party thereunder, or to
present or file any claim, or to take any action to collect or enforce any
performance or payment of any amounts due.

                 6.14 Documents, Instruments, and Chattel Paper. The Borrower
represents and warrants to the Lender that: (a) all documents, instruments, and
chattel paper describing, evidencing, or constituting Collateral, and all
signatures and endorsements thereon, are and will be complete, valid, and
genuine; and (b) all goods evidenced by such documents, instruments, and chattel
paper are and will be owned by the Borrower free and clear of all Liens other
than Permitted Liens.

                 6.15 Right to Cure. The Lender may, in its sole discretion and
at any time when an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, pay any amount or
do any act reasonably required of the Borrower hereunder to preserve, protect,
maintain or enforce the Obligations, the Collateral or the Security Interest,
and which the Borrower fails to pay or do, including, without limitation,
payment of any judgment against the Borrower, any insurance premium, any
warehouse charge, any finishing or processing charge, any landlord's claim, and
any other Lien upon or with respect to the Collateral. All payments that the
Lender makes under this Section 6.15 and all out-of-pocket costs and expenses
that the Lender pays or incurs in connection with any action taken by it
hereunder shall be charged to the Borrower's loan account as a Revolving Loan.
Any payment made or other action taken by the Lender under this Section 6.15
shall be without prejudice to any right to assert an Event of Default hereunder
and to proceed thereafter as herein provided.

                 6.16 Power of Attorney. The Borrower hereby appoints the Lender
and the Lender's designees as the Borrower's attorney, with power: (a) when an
Event of Default occurs and is continuing, to endorse the Borrower's name on any
checks, notes, acceptances, money orders, or other forms of payment or security
that come into the Lender's possession; (b) to sign the Borrower's name on
financing statements and on verifications of Accounts; (c) when an Event of
Default occurs and is continuing , to sign the Borrower's name on any invoice,
bill of lading, or other documents of title relating to the Collateral, or
drafts against customers, on assignments, and notices to account debtors; (d) to
send requests for verification of Accounts to Account Debtors; and (e) to do all
things necessary to carry out this Agreement. The Borrower ratifies and approves
all acts of such attorney. Neither the Lender nor the attorney will be liable
for any acts or omissions or for any error of judgment or mistake of fact or
law, except for Lender's or the attorneys' gross negligence or willful
misconduct. This power, being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable until
this Agreement has been terminated and the Obligations have been fully
satisfied.

                 6.17 Lender's Rights, Duties, and Liabilities. The Borrower
assumes all responsibility and liability arising from or relating to the use,
sale, or other disposition of the Collateral. Neither the Lender nor any of its
officers, directors, employees, and agents shall be liable or responsible in any
way for the safekeeping of any of the Collateral, or for any act or failure to
act with respect to the Collateral, or for any loss or damage thereto, or for
any diminution in the value thereof, or for any act of default or any
warehouseman, carrier, forwarding agency or other person whomsoever, all of
which shall be at the Borrower's sole risk. The Obligations shall not be
affected by any failure of the Lender to take any steps to perfect the Security
Interest or to collect or realize upon the Collateral, nor shall loss of or
damage to the Collateral release the Borrower from any of the Obligations. The
Lender may (but shall not be required to), without notice to or consent from the
Borrower, sue upon or otherwise collect, extend the time for payment of, modify
or amend the terms of, compromise or settle for cash, credit, or otherwise upon
any terms, grant other indulgences, extensions, renewals, compositions, or
releases, and take or omit to take any other action with respect to the
Collateral, any security therefor, any agreement relating thereto, any insurance
applicable thereto, or any Person liable directly or indirectly in connection
with any of the foregoing, without discharging or otherwise affecting the
liability of the Borrower for the Obligations or under this Agreement or any
other agreement now or hereafter existing between the Lender and the Borrower.

              7. BOOKS AND RECORDS; FINANCIAL INFORMATION; NOTICES

                 7.1 Books and Records. The Borrower shall maintain, at all
times, correct and complete books, records and accounts in which complete,
correct and timely entries are made of its transactions in accordance with GAAP
consistent with those applied in the preparation of the Financial Statements.
The Borrower shall, by means of appropriate entries, reflect in such accounts
and in all Financial Statements proper liabilities and reserves for all taxes
and proper provision for depreciation and amortization of Property and bad
debts, all in accordance with GAAP. The Borrower shall maintain at all times
books and records pertaining to the Collateral in such detail, form, and scope
as the Lender shall reasonably require, including without limitation records of:
(a) all payments received and all credits and extensions granted with respect to
the Accounts; (b) the return, rejections, repossession, stoppage in transit,
loss, damage, or destruction of any Inventory; and (c) all other dealings

to the Lender or its agents all such financial information as the Lender shall
reasonably request. Without limiting the foregoing, the Borrower and its
Subsidiaries will furnish to the Lender, in such detail as the Lender shall
request, the following:

figures for the previous Fiscal Year, all in reasonable detail, fairly
presenting the financial position and the results of operations of the Borrower
and its consolidated Subsidiaries as at the date thereof and for the Fiscal Year
then ended, and prepared in accordance with GAAP. Such statements shall be
examined in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards by and

public accountants selected by the Borrower and reasonably satisfactory to the
Lender.

                          (b) As soon as available, but in any event not later

results of operation of the Borrower and its consolidated Subsidiaries as at the

                 The Borrower warrants and represents to the Lender that:

                 8.1 Authorization, Validity, and Enforceability of this
Agreement and the Loan Documents. The Borrower has the corporate power and
authority to execute, deliver and perform this Agreement and the other Loan
Documents, to incur the Obligations, and to grant the Security Interest. The
Borrower has taken all necessary corporate action (including, without
limitation, obtaining approval of its stockholders) to authorize its execution,
delivery, and performance of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. No
consent, approval, or authorization of, or declaration or filing with, any
Public Authority, and no consent of any other Person, is required in connection
with the Borrower's execution, delivery, and performance of this Agreement and
the other Loan Documents, except for those already duly obtained. This Agreement
and the other Loan Documents have been duly executed and delivered by the
Borrower and constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the
Borrower, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms without defense,
setoff, or counterclaim, subject, as to enforcement of remedies, to the
following qualifications: (i) an order of specific performance and an injunction
are discretionary remedies and, in particular, may not be available where
damages are considered an adequate remedy at law, and (ii) enforcement may be
limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, liquidation, reorganization reconstruction,
and other similar laws affecting enforcement of creditors' rights generally
(insofar as any such law relates to the bankruptcy, insolvency, or similar event
of the Borrower). The Borrower's execution, delivery, and performance of this
Agreement and the other Loan Documents do not and will not conflict with, or
constitute a violation or breach of, or constitute a default under, or result in
the creation or imposition of any Lien upon the Property of the Borrower or any
of its Subsidiaries (except as contemplated by this Agreement and the other Loan
Documents) by reason of the terms of (a) any mortgage, lease, agreement, or
instrument to which the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries is a party or which
is binding upon it, (b) any judgment, law, statute, rule or governmental
regulation applicable to the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, or (c) the
Certificate or Articles of Incorporation or By-Laws of the Borrower or any of
its Subsidiaries.

                 8.2 Validity and Priority of Security Interest. The provisions
of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents create legal and valid Liens on
all the Collateral in the Lender's favor, and when all proper filings,
recordings, and other actions necessary to perfect such Liens have been made or
taken, such Liens will constitute perfected and continuing Liens on all the
Collateral, having priority over all other Liens on the Collateral except the
Permitted Liens identified in subparagraphs (c), (d), (e), (f), (h), (i), (j),
and (l) of the definition of Permitted Liens, securing all the Obligations, and
enforceable against the Borrower and all third parties.

and to own its Property.

of its state of incorporation set forth on Schedule 8.5, and (b) qualified to do
business as a foreign corporation and in good standing in the states set forth
opposite its name on Schedule 8.5, which are the only states in which such
qualification is necessary in order for it to own or lease its Property and
conduct its business.

part thereof or any similar securities for issue or sale to or solicit any offer
to acquire any of the same from anyone so as to bring the issuance thereof
within the provisions of Section 5 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

shall provide to the Lender, upon request, satisfactory evidence of its timely
compliance with the foregoing; and (b) pay when due all Debt owed by it and
perform and discharge in a timely manner all other obligations undertaken by it;
provided, however that the Borrower and its Subsidiaries need not pay any tax,
fee, assessment, governmental charge, or Debt, or perform or discharge any other
obligation, that it is contesting in good faith by appropriate proceedings
diligently pursued.

                 9.2 Corporate Existence and Good Standing. The Borrower and
each of its Subsidiaries shall maintain its corporate existence and its
qualification and good standing in all states necessary to conduct its business

of its Subsidiaries shall comply with the terms and provisions of each judgment,
law, statute, rule, and governmental regulation applicable to it and each

in full compliance with all Environmental Laws applicable to it, including,
without limitation, those relating to the Borrower's generation, handling, use,
storage, and disposal of hazardous and toxic wastes and substances. The Borrower

appropriate action to respond to any non-compliance with Environmental Laws and

automatically become immediately due and payable); and (v) pursue its other
rights and remedies under the Loan Documents and applicable law.

in addition to all other rights, the rights and remedies of a secured party
under the UCC; (ii) the Lender may, at any time, take possession of the
Collateral and keep it on the Borrower's premises, at no cost to the Lender, or
remove any part of it to such other place or places as the Lender may desire, or
the Borrower shall, upon the Lender's demand, at the Borrower's cost, assemble
the Collateral and make it available to the Lender at a place reasonably
convenient to the Lender; and (iii) the Lender may sell and deliver any
Collateral at public or private sales, for cash, upon credit or otherwise, at
such prices and upon such terms as the Lender deems advisable, in its sole
discretion, and may, if the Lender deems it reasonable, postpone or adjourn any
sale of the Collateral by an announcement at the time and place of sale or of
such postponed or adjourned sale without giving a new notice of sale. Without in
any way requiring notice to be given in the following manner, the Borrower
agrees that any notice by the Lender of sale, disposition or other intended
action hereunder or in connection herewith, whether required by the UCC or
otherwise, shall constitute reasonable notice to the Borrower if such notice is
mailed by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage
prepaid, or is delivered personally against receipt, at least five (5) days
prior to such action to the Borrower's address specified in or pursuant to
Section 14.11. If any Collateral is sold on terms other than payment in full at
the time of sale, no credit shall be given against the Obligations until the
Lender receives payment, and if the buyer defaults in payment, the Lender may

judgment. The Borrower agrees that the Lender has no obligation to preserve
rights to the Collateral or marshall any Collateral for the benefit of any

names, trademarks, and advertising matter, or any similar property, in
completing production of, advertising or selling any Collateral, and the
Borrower's rights under all licenses and all franchise agreements shall inure to
the Lender's benefit. The proceeds of sale shall be applied first to all
expenses of sale, including attorneys fees, and second, in whatever order the
Lender elects, to all Obligations. The Lender will return any excess to

the Borrower or such other Person as shall be legally entitled thereto and the
Borrower shall remain liable for any deficiency.

                 (c) If an Event of Default occurs, the Borrower hereby waives
(i) all rights to notice and hearing prior to the exercise by the Lender of the
Lender's rights to repossess the Collateral without judicial process or to
replevy, attach or levy upon the Collateral without notice or hearing, and (ii)
all rights of set-off and counterclaim against Lender.

                 (d) If the Lender terminates this Agreement upon an Event of
Default, the Borrower shall pay the Lender, immediately upon termination, an
early termination penalty equal to the early termination fee that would have
been payable under Article 13 if this Agreement had been terminated on that date
pursuant to the Borrowers election.

                            13. TERM AND TERMINATION

any time during its initial term or any successive renewal term if: (a) it gives
the Lender sixty (60) days prior written notice of termination by registered or
certified mail; (b) it pays and performs all Obligations on or prior to the

outstanding during the prior 180 day period (or lesser period if within 180 days
of the Closing Date) if such termination is made on or prior to the first
Anniversary Date; provided, however, the Lender agrees to waive payment of the
early termination fee if the Loan is repaid in full by being refinanced with
Bank of America N.T. & S.A. or by an Affiliate thereof or if the Loan is
refinanced within 90 days of Lender taking any action pursuant to Section 3.5. 
and provided further that the termination fee shall be $75,000 if the Borrower 
is merged into, or a substantial part of the Borrower's assets are acquired by 
a third party. The Lender may also terminate this Agreement without notice 
upon an Event of Default. Upon the effective date of termination of this

discretion, to determine which rights and remedies are to be exercised and in
which order. The exercise of one right or remedy shall not preclude the exercise
of any others, all of which shall be cumulative. The Lender may, without
limitation, proceed directly against the Borrower to collect the Obligations
without any prior recourse to the Collateral.

                 14.2 No Implied Waivers. No act, failure or delay by the Lender
shall constitute a waiver of any of its rights and remedies. No single or
partial waiver by the Lender of any provision of this Agreement or any other
Loan Document, or of breach or default hereunder or thereunder, or of any right
or remedy which the Lender may have, shall operate as a waiver of any other
provision, breach, default, right or remedy or of the same provision, breach,
default, right or remedy on a future occasion. No waiver by the Lender shall
affect its rights to require strict performance of this Agreement.

                 14.3 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be

days after the mailing or other service thereof, it shall be deemed in default
and an order or judgment may be entered against it as demanded or prayed for in
such summons, complaint, process or papers. The choice of forum set forth in

enforce the same, in any appropriate jurisdiction.

                 14.6 Waiver of Jury Trial. THE BORROWER HEREBY WAIVES TRIAL BY

is secured by real property collateral located in California. If all parties do
not consent to submission of such a controversy or claim to arbitration, the
controversy or claim shall be determined as provided in subparagraph (c).

                          (c) A controversy or claim which is not submitted to
arbitration as provided and limited in subparagraphs (a) and (b) shall, at the
request of any party, be determined by a reference in accordance with California
Code of Civil Procedure Section 638 et seq. If such an election is made, the
parties shall designate to the court a referee or referees selected under the
auspices of the AAA in the same manner as arbitrators are selected in
AAA--sponsored proceedings. The presiding referee of the panel, or the referee
if there is a single referee, shall be an active attorney or retired judge.
Judgment upon the award rendered by such referee or referees shall be entered in
the court in which such proceeding was commenced in accordance with California
Code of Civil Procedure Sections 644 and 645.

                          (d) No provision of this paragraph shall limit the
right of any party to this Agreement to exercise self-help remedies such as
setoff, to foreclose against or sell any real or personal property collateral or
security, or to obtain provisional or ancillary remedies from a court of
competent jurisdiction before, after, or during the pendency of any arbitration
or other proceeding. The exercise of a remedy does not waive the right of either
party to resort to arbitration or reference. At the Lender's option, foreclosure
under a deed of trust or mortgage may be accomplished either by exercise of
power of sale under the deed of trust or mortgage or by judicial foreclosure.

                 14.8 Survival of Representations and Warranties. All of the
Borrower's representations and warranties contained in this Agreement shall
survive the execution, delivery, and acceptance thereof by the parties,
notwithstanding any investigation by the Lender or its agents.

                 14.9 Other Security and Guaranties. The Lender may, without
notice or demand and without affecting the Borrower's obligations hereunder,
from time to time: (a) take from any Person and hold collateral (other than the
Collateral) for the payment of all or any part of the Obligations and exchange,
enforce or release such collateral or any part thereof; and (b) accept and hold
any endorsement or guaranty of payment of all or any part of the Obligations and
release or substitute any such endorser or guarantor, or any Person who has
given any Lien in any other collateral as security for the payment of all or any
part of the Obligations, or any other Person in any way obligated to pay all or
any part of the Obligations.

                 14.10 Fees and Expenses. The Borrower shall pay to the Lender
on demand all costs and expenses that the Lender pays or incurs in connection
with the negotiation, preparation, consummation, administration, enforcement,
and termination of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, including,
without limitation: (a) attorneys' and paralegal's fees and disbursements of
counsel to the Lender and any Participating Lender (including, without
limitation, a reasonable estimate of the allocable cost of in-house counsel and
staff); (b) costs and expenses including attorneys' and paralegals' fees and
disbursements (including, without limitation, a reasonable estimate of the
allocable cost of in-house counsel and staff) for any amendment, supplement,
waiver, consent, or subsequent closing in connection with the Loan Documents and
the transactions contemplated thereby; (c) costs and expenses of lien and title
searches and title insurance; (d) taxes, fees and other charges for recording
the mortgages, filing financing statements and continuations, and other actions
to perfect, protect, and continue the Security Interest; (e) sums paid or
incurred to pay any amount or take any action required of the Borrower under the
Loan Documents that the Borrower fails to pay or take; (f) costs of appraisals,
inspections, and verifications of the Collateral, including, without limitation,
travel, lodging, and meals together with an allocated charge of $500 per day for
each auditor employed by Lender for inspections of the Collateral and the
Borrower's operations; (g) costs and expenses of forwarding loan proceeds,
collecting checks and other items of payment, and establishing and maintaining
Payment Accounts and lock boxes; (h) all amounts that the Borrower is required
to pay under the Letter of Credit Agreement; (i) costs and expenses of
preserving and protecting the Collateral; and (j) costs and expenses

including attorneys' and paralegals' fees and disbursements (including, without
limitation, a reasonable estimate of the allocable cost of in-house counsel and
staff) paid or incurred to obtain payment of the Obligations, enforce the
Security Interest, sell or otherwise realize upon the Collateral, and otherwise
enforce the provisions of the Loan Documents, or to defend any claims made or
threatened against the Lender arising out of the transactions contemplated
hereby (including without limitation, preparations for and consultations
concerning any such matters). The foregoing shall not be construed to limit any
other provisions of the Loan Documents regarding costs and expenses to be paid
by the Borrower. All of the foregoing costs and expenses shall be charged to the
Borrower's loan account as Revolving Loans. Notwithstanding anything to the
contrary contained herein, the obligation of Borrower to reimburse Lender for
its costs and expenses in negotiating, documenting, and auditing prior to the
Closing Date shall not exceed $25,000.

                 14.11 Notices. Except as otherwise provided herein, all
notices, demands, and requests that either party is required or elects to give
to the other shall be in writing, shall be delivered personally against receipt,

                 14.12 Indemnification. BORROWER HEREBY INDEMNIFIES, DEFENDS AND
HOLDS LENDER, AND ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES AND COUNSEL,
HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL LOSSES, CLAIMS, DAMAGES, LIABILITIES,
DEFICIENCIES, JUDGMENTS, PENALTIES OR EXPENSES IMPOSED ON, INCURRED BY OR
ASSERTED AGAINST ANY OF THEM, WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL ARISING
OUT OF OR BY REASON OF ANY LITIGATION, INVESTIGATIONS, CLAIMS, OR PROCEEDINGS
(WHETHER BASED ON ANY FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL LAWS OR OTHER STATUTES OR
REGULATIONS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, SECURITIES, ENVIRONMENTAL, OR
COMMERCIAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS, UNDER COMMON LAW OR AT EQUITABLE CAUSE, OR ON
CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE) COMMENCED OR THREATENED, WHICH ARISE OUT OF OR ARE IN ANY
WAY BASED UPON THE NEGOTIATION, PREPARATION, EXECUTION, DELIVERY, ENFORCEMENT,
PERFORMANCE OR ADMINISTRATION OF THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT, OR ANY
UNDERTAKING OR PROCEEDING RELATED TO ANY OF THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY
OR ANY ACT, OMISSION TO ACT, EVENT OR TRANSACTION RELATED OR ATTENDANT THERETO,
INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, AMOUNTS PAID IN SETTLEMENT, COURT COSTS, AND THE
FEES AND EXPENSES OF COUNSEL REASONABLY INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY SUCH
LITIGATION, INVESTIGATION, CLAIM OR PROCEEDING; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT BORROWER
SHALL NOT INDEMNIFY LENDER, ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES AND
COUNSEL FROM SUCH DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THEIR GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL
MISCONDUCT. Without limiting the foregoing, if, by reason of any suit or
proceeding of any kind, nature, or description against Borrower, or by Borrower
or any other party against Lender, which in Lender's sole discretion makes it
advisable for Lender to seek counsel for protection and preservation of its
liens and security assets, or to defend its own interest, such expenses and
counsel fees shall be allowed to Lender. To the extent that the undertaking to
indemnify, pay and hold harmless set forth in this Section 14.12 may be
unenforceable because it is violative of any law or public policy, Borrower
shall contribute the maximum portion which it is permitted to pay and satisfy
under applicable law, to the payment and satisfaction of all indemnified matters
incurred by Lender. The foregoing indemnity shall survive the payment of the
Obligations and the termination of this Agreement. All of the foregoing costs
and expenses shall be part of the Obligations and secured by the Collateral.

                 14.13 Waiver of Notices. Unless otherwise expressly provided
herein, the Borrower waives presentment, protest and notice of demand or
dishonor and protest as to any instrument, as well as any and all other notices
to which it might otherwise be entitled. No notice to or demand on the Borrower
which the Lender may elect to give shall entitle the Borrower to any or further
notice or demand in the same, similar or other circumstances.

                 14.14 Binding Effect; Assignment. The provisions of this
Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the respective
representatives, successors and assigns of the parties hereto; provided,
however, that no interest herein may be assigned by the Borrower without the
prior written consent of the Lender. The rights and benefits of the Lender
hereunder shall, if the Lender so agrees, inure to any party acquiring any
interest in the Obligations or any part thereof.

                 14.15 Modification. This Agreement is intended by the Borrower
and the Lender to be the final, complete, and exclusive expression of the
agreement between them. This Agreement supersedes any and all prior oral or
written agreements relating to the subject matter hereof and may not be
contradicted by evidence of prior, contemporaneous or subsequent oral agreements
of the parties. There are no oral agreements between the parties. No
modification, rescission, waiver, release, or amendment of any provision of this
Agreement shall be made, except by a written agreement signed by the Borrower
and a duly authorized officer of the Lender.

                 14.16 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any
number of counterparts, and by the Lender and the Borrower in separate
counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but all of which shall
together constitute one and the same agreement.

                 14.17 Captions. The captions contained in this Agreement are
for convenience only, are without substantive meaning and should not be
construed to modify, enlarge, or restrict any provision.

                 14.18 Right of Set-Off. Whenever an Event of Default exists,
the Lender is hereby authorized, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set
off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand,
provisional or final) at any time held and other indebtedness at any time owing
by the Lender or any affiliate of the Lender to or for the credit or the account
of the Borrower against any and all of the Obligations, whether or not then due
and payable. Lender agrees promptly to notify Borrower after any such set-off
and application made by Lender, provided that the failure to give such notice
shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application.

                 14.19 Participating Lender's Security Interests. The Lender
may, with notice to but without consent of the Borrower, grant one or more
participations in the Loans to Participating Lenders. If a Participating Lender
shall at any time with the Borrower's knowledge participate with the Lender in
the Loans, the Borrower hereby grants to such Participating Lender, and the
Lender and such Participating Lender shall have and are hereby given, a
continuing lien on and security interest in any money, securities and other
property of the Borrower in the custody or possession of the Participating
Lender, including the right of setoff, to the extent of the Participating
Lender's participation in the Obligations, and such Participating Lender shall
be deemed to have the same right of setoff to the extent of Participating
Lender's participation in the Obligations under this Agreement as it would have
were it a direct lender.

         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have entered into this Agreement on the
date first above written.
