Such notice shall be substantially in the form of the subscription form appearing at the end of this Warrant as Exhibit A, duly executed by Holder or its agent or attorney. Upon receipt thereof, the Company shall, as promptly as practicable, and in any event within five (5) Business Days thereafter, execute or cause to be executed and deliver/or cause to be delivered to Holder a certificate or certificates countersigned and registered by the Company's transfer agent or registrar, if any there be, representing the aggregate number of full shares of Common Stock issuable upon such exercise, together with cash in lieu of any fraction of a share, as hereinafter provided. The stock certificate or certificates so delivered shall be, to the extent possible, in such denomination or denominations as such Holder shall request in the notice and shall be registered in the name of Holder or, subject to Section 8, such other name as shall be designated in the notice. This Warrant shall be deemed to have been exercised and such certificate or certificates shall be deemed to have been issued, and Holder or any other Person so designated to be named therein shall be deemed to have become a holder of record of such shares for all purposes, as of the date the notice, together with the payment as set forth below, and this Warrant are received by the Company as described above and all taxes required to be paid by Holder, if any, pursuant to Section 2.2 prior to the issuance of such shares have been paid or agreed to be paid when finally determined. If this Warrant shall have been exercised in part, the Company shall, at the time of delivery of the certificate or certificates representing Warrant Stock, deliver to Holder a new Warrant evidencing the rights of Holder to purchase the unpurchased shares of Common Stock called for by this Warrant, which new Warrant shall in all other respects be identical with this Warrant, or, at the request of Holder, appropriate notation may be on this Warrant and the same returned to Holder. Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, the Company shall not be required to register Warrants and shares in the name of any Person who acquired this Warrant (or part hereof) or any Warrant Stock otherwise than in accordance with this Warrant. Payment of the Warrant Price shall be made at the option of the Holder by certified or official bank check, by General Electric Capital Corporation check or draft, by cancellation of indebtedness, if any, owed by the Company to such Holder or by any combination thereof. -6- 2.2 Payment of Taxes. All shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant pursuant to the terms hereof shall be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and, to the extent permitted by law, free of liens and any preemptive rights. The Company shall pay all expenses in connection with, and all taxes and other governmental charges that may be imposed with respect to, the issue or delivery thereof, unless such tax or charge is imposed by law upon Holder, in which case such taxes or charges shall be paid by Holder. The Company shall not be required, however, to pay any tax or other charge imposed in connection with any transfer involved in the issue of any certificate for shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant in any name other than that of Holder, and in such case the Company shall not be required to issue or deliver any stock certificate until such tax or other charge has been paid or it has been established to the satisfaction of the Company that no such tax or other charge is due. 2.3 Fractional Shares. The Company may but shall not be required to issue a fractional share of Common Stock upon exercise of any Warrant. As to any fraction of a share which the Holder of one or more Warrants, the rights under which are exercised in the same transaction, would otherwise be entitled to purchase upon such exercise, but for the Company's election not to issue a fractional share, the Company shall pay a cash adjustment in respect of such final fraction in an amount equal to the same fraction of the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock on the date of exercise. If the determination of Current Market Price for purposes of this Section 2.3 shall require an appraisal to be made by an investment banking firm, Current Market Price for such purposes shall mean Book Value per share of Common Stock on the date of exercise unless a determination of Appraised Value had been made within six months prior to such date, in which case, the higher of Book Value or Appraised Value shall be used to make such determination. 2.4 Continued Validity. A holder of shares of Restricted Common Stock issued upon the exercise of this Warrant, in whole or in part, shall continue to be entitled with respect to such shares to all rights to which it would have been entitled as Holder under Sections 8, 9, 13, and 16 of this Warrant. The Company will, at the time of each exercise of this Warrant, in whole or in part, upon the request of the holder of the shares of Common Stock issued upon such exercise hereof, acknowledge in writing, in form reasonably satisfactory to such holder, its continuing obligation to afford to such holder all such rights and subject to any burdens; provided, however, that if such holder shall fail to make any such request, such failure shall not affect the continuing obligation of the Company to afford to such holder all such rights. -7- 3. TRANSFER, DIVISION AND COMBINATION 3.1 Transfer. Subject to compliance with Section 8 transfer of this Warrant and all rights hereunder, in whole or in part, shall be registered on the books of the Company to be maintained for such purpose, upon surrender of this Warrant at the principal office of the Company referred to in Section 2.1 or the office or agency designated by the Company pursuant to Section 12, together with a written assignment of this Warrant substantially in the form of Exhibit B hereto duly executed by Holder or its agent or attorney and delivery of funds sufficient to pay any transfer taxes payable upon the making of such transfer. Upon such surrender and, if required, such payment, the Company shall, subject to Section 8, execute and deliver a new Warrant or Warrants in the name of the assignee or assignees and in the denomination specified in such instrument of assignment, and shall issue to the assignor a new Warrant evidencing the portion of this Warrant, if any, not so assigned, and this Warrant shall promptly be cancelled. A Warrant, if properly assigned in compliance with Section 8, may be exercised by a new Holder for the purchase of shares of Common Stock without having a new Warrant issued. If requested by the Company, a new Holder shall acknowledge in writing, in form reasonably satisfactory to the Company, such Holder's continuing obligation under Section 8 of this Warrant. 3.2 Division and Combination. Subject to Section 8, this Warrant may be divided or combined with other Warrants upon presentation hereof at the aforesaid office or agency of the Company, together with a written notice specifying the names and denominations in which new Warrants are to be issued, signed by Holder or its agent or attorney. Subject to compliance with Section 3.1 and with Section 8, as to any transfer which may be involved in such division or combination, the Company shall execute and deliver a new Warrant or Warrants in exchange for the Warrant or Warrants to be divided or combined in accordance with such notice. 3.3 Expenses. The Company shall pay all expenses, taxes (other than transfer taxes) and other charges payable in connection with preparation, issuance and delivery of the new warrant or Warrants under this Section 3. 3.4 Maintenance of Books. The Company agrees to maintain, at its aforesaid office or agency, books for the registration, and the registration of transfer, of the Warrants. 4. ADJUSTMENTS The number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable, and the price at which such shares may be purchased upon exercise of this Warrant, shall be subject to -8- adjustment from time to time as set forth in this Section 4. The Company shall give each Holder notice of any event described below which requires an adjustment pursuant to this Section 4 at the time of such event. 4.1 Stock Dividends, Subdivisions and Combinations. If at any time the Company shall: (a) take a record of the holders of its Common Stock for the purpose of entitling them to receive a dividend payable in, or other distribution of, Additional Shares of Common Stock, (b) subdivide its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a larger number of shares of Common Stock, or (c) combine its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares of Common Stock, then (i) the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately after the occurrence of any such event shall be adjusted to equal the number of shares of Common Stock which a record holder of the same number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately prior to the occurrence of such event would own or be entitled to receive after the happening of such event, and (ii) the Current Warrant Price shall be adjusted to equal (A) the Current Warrant Price multiplied by the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately prior to the adjustment divided by (B) the number of shares for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately after such adjustment. 4.2 Certain Other Distributions. If at any time the Company shall take a record of the holders of its Common Stock for the purpose of entitling them to receive any dividend or other distribution of: (a) cash (other than a cash distribution or dividend which is permitted under the Loan Agreement and which is payable out of earnings or earned surplus legally available for the payment of dividends under the laws of the jurisdiction of incorporation of the Company); (b) any evidences of its indebtedness, any shares of its stock or any other securities or property of any nature whatsoever (other than cash, Convertible Securities or Additional Shares of Common Stock); or (c) any warrants or other rights to subscribe for or purchase any evidences of its indebtedness, any shares of its stock or any other securities or property of any nature -9- whatsoever (other than cash, Convertible Securities or Additional Shares of Common Stock); then (i) the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable shall be adjusted to equal the product of the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately prior to such adjustment by a fraction (A) the numerator of which shall be the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock at the date of taking such record, and (B) the denominator of which shall be (x) such Current Market Price per share of Common Stock, minus (y) the amount allocable to one share of Common Stock of any such cash so distributable and of the fair value (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company and supported by an opinion from an investment banking firm of recognized national standing acceptable to the Majority Holders) of any and all such evidences of indebtedness, shares of stock, other securities or property or warrants or other subscription or purchase rights so distributable, and (ii) the Current Warrant Price shall be adjusted to equal (A) the Current Warrant Price multiplied by the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately prior to the adjustment divided by (B) the number of shares for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately after such adjustment. A reclassification of the Common Stock (other than a change in par value, or from par value to no par value) into shares of Common Stock and shares of any other class of stock shall be deemed a distribution by the Company to the holders of its Common Stock of such shares of such other class of stock within the meaning of this Section 4.2 and, if the outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be changed into a larger or smaller number of shares of Common Stock as a part of such reclassification, such change shall be deemed a subdivision or combination, as the case may be, of the outstanding shares of Common Stock within the meaning of Section 4.1. 4.3 Issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock. (a) If at any time the Company shall (except as hereinafter provided) issue or sell any Additional Shares of Common Stock, other than Permitted Issuances, then: (i) the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable shall be adjusted to equal the product obtained by multiplying the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately prior to such issue or sale by a fraction (W) the numerator of which is the number of shares of Common Stock Outstanding immediately after the issuance or sale of such Additional Shares of Common Stock, and (X) the denominator of which is the number of shares of Common Stock Outstanding immediately prior to such issuance or sale; and (ii) if such Additional Shares of Common Stock are issued or sold for consideration in an amount per Additional Share of Common Stock less than the greater of the Current Warrant Price or the Current Market Price, then the Current Warrant Price shall be reduced to the lower of (I) a -10- price determined by dividing (A) an amount equal to the sum of (Y) the number of shares of Common Stock Outstanding immediately prior to such issuance or sale multiplied by the then existing Current Warrant Price, plus (Z) the consideration, if any, received by the Company upon such issuance or sale, by (B) the total number of shares of Common Stock Outstanding immediately after such issuance or sale and (II) a price determined by multiplying the Current Warrant Price by a fraction, the numerator of which is (A) the sum of (1) the number of shares of Common Stock Outstanding immediately prior to such issue or sale multiplied by the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock immediately prior to such issue or sale plus (2) the aggregate consideration, if any, received by the Company upon such issue or sale, divided by (B) the total number of shares of Common Stock Outstanding immediately after such issue or sale, and the denominator of which shall be the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock immediately prior to such issue or sale. (b) The provisions of paragraph (a) of Section 4.3 shall not apply to any issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock for which an adjustment is provided under Section 4.1 or 4.2. No adjustment of the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant shall be exercisable or the Current Warrant Price shall be made under paragraph (a) of Section 4.3 upon the issuance of any Additional Shares of Common Stock which are issued pursuant to the exercise of any warrants, options or other subscription or purchase rights or pursuant to the exercise of any conversion or exchange rights in any Convertible Securities, if any such adjustment shall previously have been made upon the issuance of such warrants, options or other rights or upon the issuance of such Convertible Securities (or upon the issuance of any warrant or other rights therefor) pursuant to Section 4.4 or Section 4.5. 4.4 Issuance of Warrants or Other Rights. If at any time the Company shall take a record of the holders of its Common Stock for the purpose of entitling them to receive a distribution of, or shall in any manner (whether directly or by assumption in a merger in which the Company is the surviving corporation) issue or sell, any warrants or other rights to subscribe for or purchase any Additional Shares of Common Stock or any Convertible Securities other than Permitted Issuances, whether or not the rights to exchange or convert thereunder are immediately exercisable, then the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable shall be adjusted as provided in Section 4.3 (and if the Warrant consideration as provided in Section 4.7 per Common Stock share receivable upon exercise of such warrants or other rights or upon conversion or exchange of such Convertible Securities shall be less than either the Current Warrant Price or the Current Market Price in effect immediately prior to the time of such issue or sale, then the Current Warrant Price shall be adjusted as provided in Section 4.3) on the basis -11- that (i) the maximum number of Additional Shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to all such warrants or other rights or necessary to effect the conversion or exchange of all such Convertible Securities shall be deemed to have been issued and outstanding, (ii) the price per share of such Additional Shares of Common Stock shall be deemed to be the lowest possible price per share at which such Additional Shares of Common Stock are available to such holders, and (iii) the Company shall have received all of the consideration payable therefor, if any, as of the date of the actual issuance of such warrants or other rights. No further adjustments of the number of shares for which this Warrant is exercisable or the Current Warrant Price shall be made upon the actual issue of such Common Stock or of such Convertible Securities upon exercise of such warrants or other rights or upon the actual issue of such Common Stock upon such conversion or exchange of such Convertible Securities, provided that, where no such adjustment has been made at the time of issuance, an adjustment shall be made at the time of the conversion of any such Convertible Securities or at the time of the exercise of any such warrants or other rights if such an adjustment is required by Section 4.3. 4.5 Issuance of Convertible Securities. If at any time the Company shall take a record of the holders of its Common Stock for the purpose of entitling them to receive a distribution of, or shall in any manner (whether directly or by assumption in a merger in which the Company is the surviving corporation) issue or sell, any Convertible Securities other than Permitted Issuances, whether or not the rights to exchange or convert thereunder are immediately exercisable, then the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable shall be adjusted as provided for in Section 4.3 (and if the Convertible Securities consideration (as provided in Section 4.7) or a common share equivalent basis shall be less than the Current Warrant Price or Current Market Price in effect immediately prior to the time of such issue or sale, then the Current Warrant Price shall be adjusted as provided in Section 4.3) on the basis that (i) the maximum number of Additional Shares of Common Stock necessary to effect the conversion or exchange of all such Convertible Securities shall be deemed to have been issued and outstanding, (ii) the aggregate consideration for such maximum number of Additional Shares of Common Stock shall be deemed to be the minimum consideration receivable by the Company for the issuance of such Additional Shares of Common Stock pursuant to the terms of such Convertible Securities, and (iii) the Company shall have received all of the consideration payable therefor, if any, as of the date of actual issuance of such Convertible Securities. No adjustment of the number of shares for which this Warrant is exercisable or the Current Warrant Price shall be made under this Section 4.5 upon the issuance of any Convertible Securities which are issued pursuant to the exercise of any warrants or other subscription or purchase rights therefor, if any such adjustment -12- shall previously have been made upon the issuance of such warrants or other rights pursuant to Section 4.4. No further adjustments of the number of shares for which this Warrant is exercisable or the Current Warrant Price shall be made upon the actual issue of such Common Stock upon conversion or exchange of such Convertible Securities and, if any issue or sale of such Convertible Securities is made upon exercise of any warrant or other right to subscribe for or to purchase or any warrant or other right to purchase any such Convertible Securities for which adjustments of the number of shares for which this Warrant is exercisable or the Current Warrant Price have been or are to be made pursuant to other provisions of this Section 4, no further adjustments of the number of shares for which this Warrant is exercisable or the Current Warrant Price shall be made by reason of such issue or sale. 4.6 Superseding Adjustment. If, at any time after any adjustment of the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable shall have been made pursuant to Section 4.4 or Section 4.5 as the result of any issuance of warrants, rights or Convertible Securities, (a) such warrants or rights, or the right of conversion or exchange in such other Convertible Securities, shall expire, and all or a portion of such warrants or rights, or the right of conversion or exchange with respect to all or a portion of such other Convertible Securities, as the case may be, shall not have been exercised, or (b) the consideration per share for which shares of Common Stock are issuable pursuant to such warrants or rights, or the terms of such other Convertible Securities, shall be increased solely by virtue of provisions therein contained for an automatic increase in such consideration per share upon the occurrence of a specified date or event, then such previous adjustment shall be rescinded and annulled and the Additional Shares of Common Stock which were deemed to have been issued by virtue of the computation made in connection with the adjustment so rescinded and annulled shall no longer be deemed to have been issued by virtue of such computation. Thereupon, a recomputation shall be made of the effect of such rights or options or other Convertible Securities on then outstanding Warrants pro rata as though all warrants were outstanding and unexercised, but not on any then outstanding Warrant Stock, on the basis of (c) treating the number of Additional Shares of Common Stock or other property, if any, theretofore actually issued or issuable pursuant to the previous exercise of any such warrants or rights or any such right of conversion or exchange, as having been issued on the date or dates of any -13- such exercise and for the consideration actually received and receivable therefor, and (d) treating any such warrants or rights or any such other Convertible Securities which then remain outstanding as having been granted or issued immediately after the time of such increase of the consideration per share for which shares of Common Stock or other property are issuable under such warrants or rights or other Convertible Securities. 4.7 Other Provisions Applicable to Adjustments under this Section. The following provisions shall be applicable to the making of adjustments provided for in this Section 4: (a) Computation of Consideration. To the extent that any Additional Shares of Common Stock or any Convertible Securities or any warrants or other rights to subscribe for or purchase any Additional Shares of Common Stock or any Convertible Securities shall be issued for cash consideration, the consideration received by the Company therefor shall be the amount of the cash received by the Company therefor, or, if such Additional Shares of Common Stock or Convertible Securities are offered by the Company for subscription, the subscription price, or, if such Additional Shares of Common Stock or Convertible Securities are sold to underwriters or dealers for public offering without a subscription offering, the initial public offering price (in any such case subtracting any amounts paid or receivable for accrued interest or accrued dividends, but not subtracting any compensation, discounts or expenses paid or incurred by the Company for and in the underwriting of, or otherwise in connection with, the issuance thereof). To the extent that such issuance shall be for a consideration other than cash, then, except as herein otherwise expressly provided, the amount of such consideration shall be deemed to be the fair value of such consideration at the time of such issuance as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company or, if so requested by at least fifty percent (50%) of the Holders, by a nationally recognized independent financial expert selected by the Holders provided, however, that issuance in consideration for employees remaining in service with the Company shall be deemed issuance for no consideration. In case any Additional Shares of Common Stock or any Convertible Securities or any warrants or other rights to subscribe for or purchase such Additional Shares of Common Stock or Convertible Securities shall be issued in connection with any merger in which the Company issues any securities, the amount of consideration therefor shall be deemed to be the fair value, as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company or, if so requested by at least fifty percent (50%) of the Holders, by a nationally -14- recognized independent financial expert selected by the Holders provided, however, that issuance in consideration for employees remaining in service with the Company shall be deemed issuance for no consideration, of such portion of the assets and business of the nonsurviving corporation as the Board or such financial expert in good faith shall determine to be attributable to such Additional Shares of Common Stock, Convertible Securities, warrants or other rights, as the case may be. The consideration for any Additional Shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to any warrants or other rights to subscribe for or purchase the same shall be the consideration, if any, received by the Company for issuing such warrants or other rights plus the additional consideration payable to the Company upon exercise of such warrants or other rights. The consideration for any Additional Shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to the terms of any Convertible Securities shall be the consideration received by the Company for issuing warrants or other rights to subscribe for or purchase such Convertible Securities, plus the consideration paid or payable to the Company in respect of the subscription for or purchase of such Convertible Securities, plus the additional consideration, if any, payable to the Company upon the exercise of the right of conversion or exchange contained in such Convertible Securities. In case of the issuance at any time of any Additional Shares of Common Stock or Convertible Securities in payment or satisfaction of any dividends upon any class of stock other than Common Stock, the Company shall be deemed to have received for such Additional Shares of Common Stock or Convertible Securities a consideration equal to the amount of such dividend so paid or satisfied. (b) When Adjustments to Be Made. The adjustments required by this Section 4 shall be made whenever and as often as any specified event requiring an adjustment shall occur, except that any adjustment of the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable that would otherwise be required may be postponed (except in the case of a subdivision or combination of shares of the Common Stock, as provided for in Section 4.1) up to, but not beyond the date of exercise if such adjustment either by itself or with other adjustments not previously made adds or subtracts less than .1% of the shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately prior to the making of such adjustment. Any adjustment representing a change of less than such minimum amount (except as aforesaid) which is postponed shall be carried forward and made as soon as such adjustment, together with other adjustments required by this Section 4 and not previously made, would result in a minimum adjustment or on the date of exercise. For the purpose of any adjustment, any specified event shall be deemed to have -15- occurred at the close of business on the date of its occurrence. (c) Fractional Interests. In computing adjustments under this Section 4, fractional interests in Common Stock shall be taken into account to the nearest 1/10th of a share. (d) When Adjustment Not Required. If the Company shall take a record of the holders of its Common Stock for the purpose of entitling them to receive a dividend or distribution or subscription or purchase rights and shall, thereafter and before the distribution to stockholders thereof, legally abandon its plan to pay or deliver such dividend, distribution, subscription or purchase rights, then thereafter no adjustment shall be required by reason of the taking of such record and any such adjustment previously made in respect thereof shall be rescinded and annulled. (e) Deferral of Issuance of Warrant Stock. If after any cash or property of any type or kind, including evidences of indebtedness, becomes distributable pursuant to this Section 4 by reason of the taking of any record of the holders of Common Stock, but prior to the occurrence of the event for which such record is taken, Holder exercises this Warrant, then the Company may elect to defer the issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock to Holder resulting from the occurrence of such event until such event actually takes place; provided that the Company shall deliver to Holder a due bill or other appropriate instrument evidencing Holder's right to receive such Additional Shares upon the occurrence of any such event. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary herein, if the event for which such record was taken fails to occur or is rescinded, then such due bill shall be deemed cancelled and such right to receive such Additional Shares shall terminate. (f) Challenge to Good Faith Determination. Whenever the Board of Directors of the Company shall be required to make a determination in good faith of the fair value of any item under this Section 4, such determination may be challenged in good faith by the Majority Holders, and any dispute shall be resolved by an investment banking firm of recognized national standing selected by the Company and acceptable to such Majority Holders. (g) Treasury Stock. The sale or other disposition of any issued shares of Common Stock owned or held by or for the account of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries shall be deemed an issuance thereof for the purposes of this Section. -16- 4.8 Reorganization, Reclassification, Merger, Consolidation or Disposition of Assets. In case the Company shall reorganize its capital, reclassify its capital stock, consolidate or merge with or into another corporation (where the Company is not the surviving corporation), or sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all its property, assets or business to another corporation and, pursuant to the terms of such reorganization, reclassification, merger, consolidation or disposition of assets, shares of common stock of the successor or acquiring corporation, or any cash, shares of stock or other securities or property of any nature whatsoever (including warrants or other subscription or purchase rights) in addition to or in lieu of common stock of the successor or acquiring corporation ("Other Property"), are to be received by or distributed to the holders of Common Stock of the Company, then each Holder shall have the right thereafter to receive, upon exercise of such Holder's Warrant, the number of shares of common stock of the successor or acquiring corporation and Other Property receivable upon or as a result of such reorganization, reclassification, merger, consolidation or disposition of assets by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately prior to such event. In case of any such reorganization, reclassification, merger, consolidation or disposition of assets, the successor or acquiring corporation shall expressly assume the due and punctual observance and performance of each and every covenant and condition of this Warrant to be performed and observed by the Company and all the obligations and liabilities hereunder, subject to such modifications as may be deemed appropriate (as determined by resolution of the Board of Directors of the Company) in order to provide for adjustments of shares of the Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable which shall be as nearly equivalent as practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Section 4. For purposes of this Section 4.8 "common stock of the successor or acquiring corporation" shall include stock of such corporation of any class which is not preferred as to dividends or rights on liquidation over any other class of stock of such corporation and which is not subject to redemption and shall also include any evidences of indebtedness, shares of stock or other securities which are convertible into or exchangeable for any such stock, either immediately or upon the arrival of a specified date or the happening of a specified event and any warrants or other rights to subscribe for or purchase any such stock. The foregoing provisions of this Section 4.8 shall similarly apply to successive reorganizations, reclassifications, mergers, consolidations or disposition of assets. 4.9 Other Action Affecting Common Stock. In case at any time or from time to time the Company shall take any action in respect of its Common Stock, other than the payment of dividends permitted by Section 4.2(a) or any other action described in this Section 4, then, unless such action will not have a materially -17- adverse effect upon the rights of the Holders, the number of shares of Common Stock or other stock for which this Warrant is exercisable and/or the purchase price thereof shall be adjusted in such manner as may be equitable in the circumstances. 5. NOTICES TO WARRANT HOLDERS 5.1 Notice of Adjustments. Whenever the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable, or whenever the price at which a share of such Common Stock may be purchased upon exercise of the Warrants, shall be adjusted pursuant to Section 4, the Company shall forthwith prepare a certificate to be executed by the chief financial officer of the Company setting forth, in reasonable detail, the event requiring the adjustment and the method by which such adjustment was calculated (including a description of the basis on which the Board of Directors of the Company determined the fair value of any evidences of indebtedness, shares of stock, other securities or property or warrants or other subscription or purchase rights referred to in Section 4.2 or 4.7(a)), specifying the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable and (if such adjustment was made pursuant to Section 4.8 or 4.9) describing the number and kind of any other shares of stock or Other Property for which this Warrant is exercisable, and any change in the purchase price or prices thereof, after giving effect to such adjustment or change. The Company shall promptly cause a signed copy of such certificate to be delivered to each Holder in accordance with Section 16.2. The Company shall keep at its office or agency designated pursuant to Section 12 copies of all such certificates and cause the same to be available for inspection at said office during normal business hours by any Holder or any prospective purchaser of a Warrant designated by a Holder thereof. 5.2 Notice of Certain Corporate Action. In case the Company shall propose (a) to pay any dividend payable in stock of any class to the holders of its Common Stock or to make any other distribution to the holders of its Common Stock or (b) to offer to the holders of its Common Stock rights to subscribe for or to purchase any Convertible Securities or Additional Shares of Common Stock or shares of stock of any class or any other securities, rights or options, or (c) to effect any reclassification of its Common Stock (other than a reclassification involving only the subdivision or combination of outstanding shares of Common Stock), or (d) to effect any capital reorganization, or (e) to effect any consolidation, merger or sale, transfer or other disposition of all or substantially all its property, assets or business, or (f) to effect the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, then in each such case, the Company shall give to each holder of a Warrant in accordance with Section 16, a notice of such proposed action, which shall specify the date on which a record is to be -18- taken for the purposes of such stock dividend, distribution or rights, or the date on which such reclassification, reorganization, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer, disposition, liquidation, dissolution or winding up is to take place and the date of participation therein by the holders of Common Stock, if any such date is to be fixed, as well as the record date for any vote on any such action and shall also set forth such facts with respect thereto as shall be reasonably necessary to indicate the effect of such action on the Common Stock and the number and kind of any other shares of stock which will constitute Warrant Stock, and the purchase price or prices thereof, after giving effect to any adjustment which will be required as a result of such action. Such notice shall be so given in the case of any action covered by clause (a) or (b) above at least twenty (20) days prior to the record date for determining holders of the Common Stock for purposes of such action and, in the case of any other such action, at least twenty (20) days prior to the date of the taking of such proposed action or the date of participation therein by the holders of Common Stock, whichever shall be the earlier. 6. NO IMPAIRMENT The Company shall not by any action including, without limitation, amending its certificate of incorporation or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue or sale of securities or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Warrant, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all such terms and in the taking of all such actions as may be necessary or appropriate to protect the rights of Holder against impairment. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company will (a) not increase the par value of any shares of Common Stock receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant above the amount payable therefor upon such exercise immediately prior to such increase in par value, (b) take all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock upon the exercise of this Warrant, and (c) use its best efforts to obtain all such authorizations, exemptions or consents from any public regulatory body having jurisdiction thereof as may be necessary to enable the Company to perform its obligations under this Warrant. Upon the request of Holder, the Company will at any time during the period this Warrant is outstanding acknowledge in writing, in form satisfactory to Holder, the continuing validity of this Warrant and the obligations of the Company hereunder. -19- 7. RESERVATION AND AUTHORIZATION OF COMMON STOCK; REGISTRATION WITH OR APPROVAL OF ANY GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITY From and after the date hereof, the Company shall at all times reserve and keep available for issuance upon the exercise of Warrants such number of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock as will be sufficient to permit the exercise in full of all outstanding Warrants. All shares of Common Stock which shall be so issuable, when issued upon exercise of any Warrant and payment therefor in accordance with the terms of such Warrant, shall be duly and validly issued and fully paid and nonassessable, issued free of any lien arising through or under the issuer and not subject to preemptive rights. Before taking any action which would cause an adjustment reducing the Current Warrant Price below the then par value, if any, of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, the Company shall take any corporate action which may be necessary in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and nonassessable shares of such Common Stock at such adjusted Current Warrant Price. Before taking any action which would result in an adjustment in the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable or in the Current Warrant Price, the Company shall obtain all such authorizations or exemptions thereof, or consents thereto, as may be necessary from any public regulatory body or bodies having jurisdiction thereof. If any shares of Common Stock required to be reserved for issuance upon exercise of Warrants require registration or qualification with any governmental authority under any federal or state law (otherwise than as provided in Section 8) before such shares may be so issued, the Company will in good faith and as expeditiously as possible and at its expense endeavor to cause such shares to be duly registered or qualified; provided that the provisions of Section 8 shall govern with respect to the Company's obligation to effect the registration of its securities under the Securities Act. 8. RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFERABILITY The Warrants and the Warrant Stock shall not be transferred, hypothecated or assigned before satisfaction of the conditions specified in this Section 8, which conditions are intended to ensure compliance with the provisions of the Securities Act and state law, with respect to the Transfer of any Warrant or any Warrant Stock. Holder, by acceptance of this Warrant, agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Section 8. 8.1 Restrictive Legend. (a) Except as otherwise provided in this Section 8, each certificate for Warrant Stock initially -20- issued upon the exercise of this Warrant, and each certificate for Warrant Stock issued to any subsequent transferee of any such certificate, shall be stamped or otherwise imprinted with a legend in substantially the following form: "The shares represented by this certificate have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and are subject to the conditions specified in a certain Warrant dated as of March 31, 1992 originally issued by Specialty Equipment Companies, Inc. No transfer of the shares represented by this certificate shall be valid or effective until such conditions and any requirements of state law have been fulfilled. A copy of the form of said Warrant is on file with the Secretary of Specialty Equipment Companies, Inc. The holder of this certificate, by acceptance of this certificate, agrees to be bound by the provisions of such Warrant." (b) Except as otherwise provided in this Section 8, each Warrant shall be stamped or otherwise imprinted with a legend in substantially the following form: "This Warrant and the securities represented hereby have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be transferred in violation of such Act or state law, the rules and regulations thereunder or the provisions of this Warrant." 8.2 Notice of Proposed Transfers; Requests for Registration. Prior to any Transfer or attempted Transfer of any Warrants or any shares of Restricted Common Stock, the holder of such Warrants or Restricted Common Stock shall give ten days prior written notice (a "Transfer Notice") to the Company of such holder's intention to effect such Transfer, describing the manner and circumstances of the proposed Transfer, and shall obtain and deliver to the Company an opinion (addressed to the Company and upon which the Company may rely) from Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton or such other counsel to such holder who shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Company, that the proposed Transfer of such Warrants or such Restricted Common Stock may be effected without registration under the Securities Act. After receipt of the Transfer Notice and Opinion, the Company shall, within five days thereof, so notify the holder of such Warrants or such Restricted Common Stock and such holder shall thereupon be entitled to Transfer such Warrants or such Restricted Common Stock, in accordance with the terms of the Transfer Notice. Each certificate, if any, evidencing such shares of Restricted Common Stock issued upon such Transfer shall bear the restrictive legend set forth in Section 8.1(a), and each Warrant issued upon such Transfer shall bear the restrictive legend set forth in Section 8.1(b), unless in the opinion of such counsel such legend is not required in order to ensure compliance with the Securities Act. -21- The holder of the Warrants or the Restricted Common Stock, as the case may be, giving the Transfer Notice shall not be entitled to transfer and shall not transfer such Warrants or such Restricted Common Stock until receipt of notice from the Company under this Section 8.2. The holders of Warrants and Warrant Stock shall have the right to request registration of such Warrants and Warrant Stock pursuant to Sections 8.3 and 8.4. 8.3 Required Registration. After receipt of a written request from the holders of Warrants and/or Warrant Stock representing at least an aggregate of fifty percent (50%) of the total of (i) all shares of Warrant Stock then subject to purchase upon exercise of all Warrants and (ii) all shares of Warrant Stock then outstanding, requesting that the Company effect the registration of Warrants and Warrant Stock issuable upon the exercise of such holders' Warrants or of any of such holders' Warrant Stock under the Securities Act and specifying the intended method or methods of disposition thereof, the Company shall (i) promptly notify all holders of Warrants and Warrant Stock in writing of the receipt of such request and each such holder, in lieu of exercising its rights under Section 8.4, may elect (by written notice sent to the Company within ten Business Days from the date of such holder's receipt of the aforementioned Company's notice) to have its Warrants and shares of Warrant Stock included in such registration thereof pursuant to this Section 8.3; and (ii) as expeditiously as is possible, use its best efforts to effect the registration under the Securities Act of all Warrants and shares of Warrant Stock which the Company has been so requested to register by such holders for sale, all to the extent required to permit the disposition (in accordance with the intended method or methods thereof, as aforesaid) of the Warrants and Warrant Stock so registered; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to effect more than two registrations of any Warrants and Warrant Stock pursuant to this Section 8.3. No holder of Common Stock or of any other warrant, Convertible Securities or other right to purchase shares of Common Stock shall receive or be entitled to receive registration rights that are more favorable than the registration rights available to the Holder pursuant to the terms of this Section 8. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Section 8.3, the Company shall not be required to cause a registration pursuant to this Section 8.3 to be declared effective within a one hundred and eighty (180) day period after the Effective Date of any other registration statement of the Company effected under this Section 8.3. 8.4 Incidental Registration. If the Company at any time proposes to file on its behalf and/or on behalf of any of its security holders ("the demanding security holders") a Registration Statement under the Securities Act on any form -22- (other than a Registration Statement on Form S-4 or S-8 or any successor form for securities to be offered in a transaction of the type referred to in Rule 145 under the Securities Act or to employees of the Company pursuant to any employee benefit plan, respectively) for the general registration of securities to be sold for cash with respect to its Common Stock or any other class of equity security (as defined in Section 3(a)(11) of the Exchange Act) of the Company, it will give written notice to all holders of Warrants or Warrant Stock at least sixty (60) days before the initial filing with the Commission of such Registration Statement, which notice shall set forth the intended method of disposition of the securities proposed to be registered by the Company. The notice shall offer to include in such filing the aggregate number of Warrants and shares of Warrant Stock, and the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable, as such holders may request. Nothing herein shall preclude the Company from discontinuing the registration of its securities being effected on its behalf at any time prior to the effective date of the registration relating thereto. Each holder of any such Warrants or any such Warrant Stock desiring to have Warrants and Warrant Stock registered under this Section 8.4 shall advise the Company in writing within 30 days after the date of receipt of such offer from the Company, setting forth the amount of such Warrants and Warrant Stock for which registration is requested. The Company shall thereupon include in such filing the number of Warrants and Warrant Stock for which registration is so requested, subject to the next sentence, and shall use its best efforts to effect registration under the Securities Act of such Warrants and shares. If the managing underwriter of a proposed public offering shall advise the Company in writing that, in its opinion, the distribution of the shares of Common Stock into which the Warrants are exercisable and the Warrants and Warrant Stock requested to be included in the registration concurrently with the securities being registered by the Company or such demanding security holder would materially and adversely affect the distribution of such securities by the Company or such demanding security holder, then all demanding security holders (other than any selling security holder who requested such registration and the Company (unless such Registration Statement was filed at the request of a demanding security holder)) shall reduce the amount of securities each intended to distribute through such offering on a pro rata basis. Except as otherwise provided in Section 8.6, all expenses of such registration shall be borne by the Company. 8.5 Registration Procedures.

and (2) a letter dated such date, from the independent certified public accountants of the Company, addressed to the underwriters, if any, and to the holders making such request and, if such accountants refuse to deliver such letter to such holders, then to the Company with an acknowledgment that the selling shareholders are entitled to rely thereon, stating that they are independent certified public accountants within the meaning of the Securities Act and that, in the opinion of such accountants, the financial statements and other financial data of the Company included in the Registration Statement or the prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto, comply as to form in all material respects with the applicable accounting requirements of the Securities Act.

(a) In the event of any registration of any of the Warrants and Warrant Stock under the Securities Act pursuant to this Section 8, the Company shall indemnify and hold harmless the holder of such Warrants and Warrant Stock, such holder's directors and officers, and each other Person (including each underwriter) who participated in the offering of such Warrants and Warrant Stock and each other Person, if any, who controls such holder or such participating Person within the meaning of the Securities Act, against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which such holder or any such director or officer or participating Person or controlling Person may become subject under the Securities Act or any other statute or at common law, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon (i) any alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained, on the effective date thereof, in any Registration Statement under which such securities were registered under the Securities Act, any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or (ii) any alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, and shall reimburse such holder or such director, officer or participating Person or controlling Person for any legal or any other expenses reasonably incurred by such holder or such director, officer or participating Person or controlling Person in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action; provided, however, that the Company shall not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage or liability arises out of or is based upon any alleged untrue statement or alleged omission made in such -27- Registration Statement, preliminary prospectus, prospectus or amendment or supplement in reliance solely upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by such holder specifically for use therein. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of such holder or such director, officer or participating Person or controlling Person, and shall survive the transfer of such securities by such holder. (b) Each holder of any Warrants and Warrant Stock, by acceptance thereof, agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors and officers and each other Person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of the Securities Act against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which the Company or any such director or officer or any such Person may become subject under the Securities Act or any other statute or at common law, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon information in writing provided to the Company by such holder of such Warrants and Warrant Stock contained, on the effective date thereof, in any Registration Statement under which securities were registered under the Securities Act at the request of such holder, any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereto; provided, however, that such Holder's obligation under this Section 8.7(b) to indemnify and hold harmless the Company shall in no event exceed the damage attributable solely to the inclusion of such written information in such Registration Statement, preliminary prospectus, final prospectus, or amendment or supplement suffered by the Person or Persons whose claims gave rise to such losses, claims, damages or liabilities, and shall in no event exceed the proceeds received by such person from the proceeds of shares, Warrants or Warrant Stock sold pursuant to such Registration Statements. (c) If the indemnification provided for in this Section 8 from the indemnifying party is unavailable to an indemnified party hereunder in respect of any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses referred to herein, then the indemnifying party, in lieu of indemnifying such indemnified party, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying party and indemnified parties in connection with the actions which resulted in such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of such indemnifying party and indemnified parties shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any action in question, including any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission to state a material fact, has been made by, or relates to -28- information supplied by, such indemnifying party or indemnified parties, and the parties' relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such action. The amount paid or payable by a party under this Section 8 as a result of the losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses referred to above shall be deemed to include any legal or other fees or expenses reasonably incurred by such party in connection with any investigation or proceeding. The parties hereto agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 8.7(c) were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in the immediately preceding paragraph. No Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. 8.8 Termination of Restrictions. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of Section 8, the restrictions imposed by this Section upon the transferability of the Warrants, the Warrant Stock and the Restricted Common Stock (or Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants) and the legend requirements of Section 8.1 shall terminate as to any particular Warrant or share of Warrant Stock or Restricted Common Stock (or Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants) (i) when and so long as such security shall have been effectively registered under the Securities Act and disposed of pursuant thereto or (ii) when the Company shall have received an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to it that such legend is not required in order to ensure compliance with the Securities Act. Whenever the restrictions imposed by Section 8 shall terminate as to this Warrant, as hereinabove provided, the Holder hereof shall be entitled to receive from the Company, at the expense of the Company, a new Warrant bearing the following legend in place of the restrictive legend set forth hereon: "THE RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFERABILITY OF THE WITHIN WARRANT CONTAINED IN SECTION 8 HEREOF TERMINATED ON ____________, 19 __, AND ARE OF NO FURTHER FORCE OR EFFECT." All Warrants thereafter issued upon registration of transfer, division or combination of, or in substitution for, any Warrant or Warrants entitled to bear such legend shall have a similar legend endorsed thereon. Whenever the restrictions imposed by this Section shall terminate as to any share of Restricted Common Stock, as hereinabove provided, the holder thereof shall be entitled to receive from the Company, at the Company's expense, a new certificate representing such Common Stock not bearing the restrictive legend set forth in Section 8.1(a). -29- 8.9 Listing on Securities Exchange. If the Company shall list any shares of Common Stock on any securities exchange, it will, at its expense, list thereon, maintain and, when necessary, increase such listing of, all shares of Common Stock issued or, to the extent permissible under the applicable securities exchange rules, issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant so long as any shares of Common Stock shall be so listed during any such Exercise Period. 8.10 Certain Limitations on Registration Rights. Notwithstanding the other provisions of Section 8: (i) the Company shall not be obligated to register the Warrants and the Warrant Stock of any holder if (x) in the opinion of counsel to the Company reasonably satisfactory to the holder and its counsel (or, if the holder has engaged an investment banking firm, to such investment banking firm and its counsel), the sale or other disposition of such holder's Warrants and Warrant Stock, in the manner proposed by such holder (or by such investment banking firm), may be effected without registering such Warrants and Warrant Stock under the Securities Act, and (y) the failure of the Company to register such Warrants and Warrant Stock will not result in a reduction in the net proceeds to be received by such holder in connection with such sale or other disposition; and (ii) The Company shall not be obligated to register the Warrants and Warrant Stock of any holder pursuant to Section 8.3, if the Company has had a registration statement, under which such holder had a right to have its Warrants and Warrant Stock included pursuant to Sections 8.3 or 8.4, declared effective within one year prior to the date of the request pursuant to Section 8.3; provided, however, that if any holder elected to have its Warrants and Warrant Stock included under such registration statement but some or all of such Warrants and/or shares were excluded pursuant to the second to last sentence of Section 8.4, then such one-year period shall be reduced to six months. 8.11 Selection of Managing Underwriters. The managing underwriter or underwriters for any offering of Warrants and Warrant Stock to be registered pursuant to Section 8.3 shall be selected by the holders of a majority of the shares being so registered (other than any Warrants and shares being registered pursuant to Section 8.4) and shall be reasonably acceptable to the Company. 9. SUPPLYING INFORMATION The Company shall cooperate with each Holder of a Warrant and each holder of Restricted Common Stock in supplying -30- such information as may be reasonably necessary for such holder to complete and file any information reporting forms presently or hereafter required by the Commission as a condition to the availability of an exemption from the Securities Act for the sale of any Warrant or Restricted Common Stock. 10. LOSS OR MUTILATION Upon receipt by the Company from any Holder of evidence reasonably satisfactory to it of the ownership of and the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and (in the case of theft or destruction) of indemnity reasonably satisfactory to it (it being understood that the written agreement of GE Capital shall be sufficient indemnity) and in case of mutilation upon surrender and cancellation hereof, the Company will execute and deliver in lieu hereof a new Warrant of like tenor to such Holder. 11. WARRANT AGREEMENT The Company agrees that it will, as promptly as possible after receipt of the written request of the holders of Warrants for the purchase of at least 25% of the shares of Warrant Stock at the time purchasable under all outstanding Warrants, execute and deliver a Warrant Agreement (hereinafter called the "Warrant Agreement") with a bank or trust company in New York, New York, authorized to exercise corporate trust powers (hereinafter called the "Warrant Agent") satisfactory to such holders, incorporating the terms and conditions of the Warrants and providing for the issuance under the Warrant Agreement of Warrants in readily marketable form (hereinafter called the "New Warrants") in exchange for Warrants in the form hereof.
