RIDER TO LEASE

The following additional provisions are incorporated into and made a part
of the attached lease:

A. * LESSOR, at LESSOR's cost, shall modify the leased premises according to a
mutually agreed upon plan attached hereto before or about the time LESSEE
takes possession of the leased premises.

B. LESSEE acknowledges and agrees that the electric service upgrade to 800A,
120/208V that LESSEE has requested may not be completed by Boston Edison as
of the commencement date of the lease. Notwithstanding any such delay,
LESSEE's obligation to pay monthly rent shall commence as of the
commencement date of the lease without any abatement.

C. Upon completion of the modifications provided for herein, LESSOR shall
carefully remeasure the entire leased premises using LESSOR's standard
methodology, and if the size does not equal the total number of square feet
set forth in the initial paragraph of this lease, LESSOR shall notify
LESSEE in writing of the actual revised square footage and the
corresponding increase or decrease in rent, based on the same rate per
square foot used in this lease.

D. * Provided LESSEE is not then in default of this lease or in arrears of any
rent or invoice payment, LESSEE shall have the right to extend this lease,
including all terms, conditions, escalations, etc., for one additional
period of five (5) years ("the extended lease term") by serving LESSOR with
written notice of its desire to so extend the lease. The time for serving
such written notice shall be not more than 12 months or less than 6 months
prior to the expiration of the initial lease term. Time is of the essence.

E. * Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 1, annual base rent during the
extended lease term shall be recalculated at LESSOR's published annual
rental rate as of the commencement of the extended lease term for similar
space, and the base month from which to determine the amount of each "Cost
of Living" adjustment during the extended lease term shall then be changed
to January 2004. The "comparison" month shall be changed to November 2004,
and the first adjustment during the extended lease term shall take place
with the rent due on January 1, 2005. Section 1 shall continue to apply in
all other respects during the extended lease term.

F. * Prior to the termination date of this lease, LESSEE may remove the
telephone system, copying machines, electronic, copying, computer and
similar data equipment and lines supplied and installed by LESSEE if LESSEE
has satisfactorily complied with all other conditions of this lease and if
LESSEE repairs any and all damage resulting from such removal and restores
the leased premises to their condition prior to the installation of said
equipment, all on a timely basis prior to the end of the lease term. Time
is of the essence.

G. * LESSOR hereby represents that, to the best of its knowledge and belief,
the use of the leased premises for the purposes set forth in Section 3 is
permitted under the Massachusetts General Laws and the Wobum Zoning
Ordinance. In the event, however, that the City of Wobum issues a citation
to LESSEE prohibiting the use of the leased premises for said purposes and
said citation is adjudged valid after LESSEE has exhausted all applicable
appeals, then LESSEE may cancel this lease by serving LESSOR with 30 days
prior written notice to that effect, and neither party shall have any
further obligation to the other. Cancellation of the lease shall be
LESSEE's exclusive remedy for any breach by LESSOR of this representation
or otherwise in connection with such municipal action.

H. * In the event that the entire balance of rent is accelerated pursuant to
Section 20 above on account of the nonpayment of any sums due under this
lease, provided LESSEE then fully cures such nonpayment and pays any other
sums that are then due (including LESSOR's legal fees and costs) prior to
the entry of a final judgment for the full accelerated rent, LESSOR agrees
to reinstate the lease in full and to waive the acceleration of the rent
(without waiving any rights which may arise with respect to any subsequent
default). Time is of the essence.

2. PURCHASE AND SALE OF COMMON STOCK

a. Purchase and Sale of Common Stock. Upon the terms and conditions set
forth herein, the Company shall issue and sell to the Investor, and the Investor
shall purchase from the Company, up to that number of Shares having an aggregate
Purchase Price of $10,000,000.

b. Delivery of Put Notices. Subject to the terms and conditions of the
Transaction Documents, and from time to time during the Open Period the Company
may, in its sole discretion, deliver a Put Notice in substantially the same form
as Exhibit "C" attached hereto to the Investor which states the Dollar Amount of
Shares which the Company intends to sell to the Investor during the Purchase
Period. In addition, the Dollar Amount designated by the Company in a Put Notice
shall be in increments of not less than $75,000 and not more $5,000,000 subject
to a waiver of such minimum and maximum amounts in the Investor's sole
discretion. Once the Put Notice is received by the Investor the Put Notice shall
not be, terminated, withdrawn or otherwise revoked by the Company. During the
Open Period, the Company shall not be entitled to submit a Put Notice during the
three (3) Trading Day period following a Closing Date and a Put Notice may not
be given during a Purchase Period. The Company shall not be entitled to issue a
Put Notice to Investor for more than the Maximum Put Amount. The average Volume
Weighted Average Price for the ten (10) Trading Days immediately preceding both
the Put Notice Date and the expiration of a Purchase Period must be at least
$50,000, unless the Investor in its sole discretion reduces such amount. The
Purchase Price shall be 91% of the average of the lowest three (3) closing bid
prices of the Common Stock during the Purchase Period.

The Floor Price shall be stated in each Put Notice. In the event that
the

5

<PAGE>

Shares are trading at or below the Floor Price during the Purchase Period
immediately preceding the applicable Closing Date, the Investor, in its sole
discretion, shall have the right to decrease the Dollar Amount set forth in that
Put Notice by a pro rata percentage equal to ten percent (10%) for every day
during the ten (10) Trading Day Purchase Period that the average trading price
as reported by Bloomberg is at or below the Floor Price.

Within ten (10) calendar days after the commencement of each calendar
quarter occurring subsequent to the commencement of the Open Period, the Company
undertakes to notify Investor as to its reasonable expectations as to the Dollar
Amount it intends to raise during such calendar quarter, if any, through the
issuance of Put Notices. Such notification shall constitute only the Company's
good faith estimate with respect to such calendar quarter and shall in no way
obligate the Company to raise such amount during such calendar quarter or
otherwise limit its ability to deliver Put Notices during such calendar quarter.
The failure by the Company to comply with this provision can be cured by the
Company's notifying Investor at any time as to its reasonable expectations with
respect to the current calendar quarter.

c. Stock Payment. On the Execution Date, the Company shall issue to
Yorkeville Advisors Management, LLC ("Yorkeville") 250,000 shares of Common
Stock with the restrictive legend set forth in Section 3(g) hereof; provided
however, that such shares shall be subject to a lock up agreement in the form
attached hereto as Exhibit "D".

d. Investor's Obligation to Purchase Shares. Subject to the conditions
set forth in this Agreement, following the Investor's receipt of a validly
delivered Put Notice, the Investor shall be required to purchase from the
Company during the related Purchase Period that number of Shares having an
aggregate Purchase Price equal to the lesser of (i) the Dollar Amount set forth
in the Put Notice (subject to reduction during the Purchase Period as may be
provided pursuant to the terms of this Agreement), and (ii) 20% of the aggregate
Volume Weighted Average Price during the applicable Purchase Period, but only if
said Shares bear no restrictive legend and are not subject to stop transfer
instructions.

e. Conditions to Investor's Obligation to Purchase Shares.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Company shall
not be entitled to deliver a Put Notice and require the Investor to purchase any
Shares at a Closing (as defined in Section 2(g)) unless each of the following
conditions are satisfied:

(i) a Registration Statement shall have been declared effective
and shall remain effective and available for the resale of all
the Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights
Agreement) at all times during the Purchase Period;

(ii) at all times during the period beginning on the related Put
Notice Date and ending on and including the related Closing Date,
the Common Stock shall have been listed on The American Stock
Exchange, Inc. ("AMEX")

6

<PAGE>

or The New York Stock Exchange, Inc. or designated on the Nasdaq
National Market, The Nasdaq SmallCap Market or the National
Association of Securities Dealer's, Inc. OTC electronic bulletin
board (the "PRINCIPAL MARKET") and shall not have been suspended
from trading thereon for a period of five (5) consecutive Trading
Days during the Open Period and the Company shall not have been
notified of any pending or threatened proceeding or other action
to delist or suspend the Common Stock;

(iii) during the period beginning on the Put Notice Date and
ending on and including the applicable Closing Date, there shall
not have occurred a Major Transaction (as defined in Section
2(f)) or the public announcement of a pending Major Transaction
which has not been abandoned or terminated;

(iv) the Company has complied with its obligations and is
otherwise not in breach of a material provision, or in default
under, this Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement or any
other agreement executed in connection herewith which has not
been corrected prior to delivery of the Put Notice Date;

(v) no Material Adverse Effect (as defined in Section 4(a)) has
occurred since the Execution Date;

(vi) no injunction shall have been issued, or action commenced by
a governmental authority, prohibiting the purchase or the
issuance of the Common Stock; and

(vii) the issuance of the Common Stock will not violate the
shareholder approval requirements of AMEX.

If any of the events described in clauses (i) through (vii) above
occurs during a Purchase Period, then the Investor shall have no
obligation to purchase the Dollar Amount of Common Stock set
forth in the applicable Put Notice.

f. Major Transaction. For purposes of this Agreement, a "MAJOR
TRANSACTION" shall be deemed to have occurred at the closing of any of the
following events: (i) the consolidation, merger or other business combination of
the Company with or into another person (other than pursuant to a migratory
merger effected solely for the purposes of changing the jurisdiction of
incorporation of the Company) (ii) the sale or transfer of all or substantially
all of the Company's assets; or (iii) the consummation of a purchase, tender or
exchange offer made to, and accepted by, the holders of more than 30% of the
economic interest in, or the combined voting power of all classes of voting
stock of, the Company. Notwithstanding the above, Major Transaction shall not
include

7

<PAGE>

the proposed acquisition by the Company of Campus Custom Publishing, Inc.

g. Mechanics of Purchase of Shares by Investor. Subject to the
satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Sections 2(e), 7 and 8, the closing
of the purchase by the Investor of Shares (a "CLOSING") shall occur on the date
which is three (3) Trading Days following the expiration of the related Purchase
Period (or such other time or later date as is mutually agreed to by the Company
and the Investor) (a "CLOSING DATE"). On or before the Trading Day immediately
preceding each Closing Date, (i) the Company shall deliver to the Escrow Agent
pursuant to the Escrow Agreement certificates representing the Shares to be
issued to the Investor on such date and registered in the name of the Investor,
or in street name as may be requested by Investor, or deposit such Shares into
the account(s) (with the Investor receiving confirmation that the Shares are in
such account(s)) designated by the Investor for the benefit of the Investor and
(ii) the Investor shall deliver to the Escrow Agent the Purchase Price to be
paid for such Shares (after receipt of confirmation of delivery of such Shares),
determined as aforesaid, by wire transfer. In the alternative to physical
delivery of certificates for Common Stock to the Investor, if delivery of the
Shares may be effectuated by electronic book-entry through The Depository Trust
Company ("DTC"), then delivery of the Shares pursuant to such purchase shall,
unless requested otherwise by such Investor (or holder of such Shares), settle
by book-entry transfer through DTC on the Closing Date. The parties agree to
coordinate with DTC to accomplish this objective. The Company and the Investor
shall deliver all documents, instruments and writings required to be delivered
by either of them to the Escrow Agent pursuant to this Agreement or the Escrow
Agreement.

h. Overall Limit on Common Stock Issuable. Notwithstanding anything
contained herein to the contrary, if the Company is listed on the AMEX, the
number of Shares issuable by the Company and purchasable by the Investor
including the shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to Section 2(c) hereof,
shall not exceed 19.99% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding as of the date
of the applicable Put Notice, subject to appropriate adjustment for stock
splits, stock dividends, combinations or other similar recapitalization
affecting the Common Stock (the "MAXIMUM COMMON STOCK ISSUANCE"), unless the
issuance of Shares in excess of the Maximum Common Stock Issuance shall first be
approved by the Company's shareholders in accordance with applicable law and the
By-laws and Articles of Incorporation of the Company, if such issuance of shares
of Common Stock could cause a delisting on the Principal Market. Without
limiting the generality of the foregoing, such shareholders' approval must duly
authorize the issuance by the Company of shares of Common Stock totaling 19.99%
or more of the shares of Common Stock outstanding on the date hereof. The
parties understand and agree that the Company's failure to seek or obtain such
shareholder approval shall in no way adversely affect the validity and due
authorization of the issuance and sale of Shares hereunder or the Investor's
obligation in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof to purchase a
number of Shares in the aggregate up to the Maximum Common Stock Issuance
limitation, and that such approval pertains only to the applicability of the
Maximum Common Stock Issuance limitation provided in this Section 2(h).

(ii) pays a dividend in Common Stock or makes any other
distribution of its Common Stock, except for dividends paid
with respect to the Preferred Stock;

exchangeable securities shall be less than the Bid Price in
effect immediately prior to such issuance;

(v) issues shares of Common Stock otherwise than as provided in
the foregoing subsections (i) through (iv), at a price per

indebtedness to the holders of Common Stock as a dividend
in liquidation or by way of return of capital or other than
as a dividend payable out of earnings or surplus legally

Stock outstanding, other than an action described in any of

materially adverse effect upon the rights of Investor at
the time of a Put Notice is delivered to Investor.

j. If a Valuation Event occurs during a Purchase Period, the Investor,
at its sole option, may either (i) choose a new Purchase Period beginning on the
Trading Day immediately following the occurrence of such Valuation Event, (ii)

decline the Put Notice.

k. Registration Opinion. The Company shall cause its independent
counsel to deliver to the Investor, on each Registration Opinion Deadline, an
opinion, (the

9

<PAGE>

"REGISTRATION OPINION"), addressed to the Investor stating, inter alia, that no
facts ("MATERIAL FACTS") have come to such counsel's attention that have caused
it to believe that the Registration Statement is subject to an Ineffective
Period or to believe that the Registration Statement, any supplemental
Registration Statement (as each may be amended, if applicable), and any related
prospectuses, contain an untrue statement of material fact or omits a material
fact required to make the statements contained therein, in light of the
circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. If a Registration
Opinion cannot be delivered by the Company's independent counsel to the Investor
on the Registration Opinion Deadline due to the existence of Material Facts or
an Ineffective Period, the Company shall promptly notify the Investor and as
promptly as possible amend each of the Registration Statement and any
supplemental Registration Statements, as applicable, and any related prospectus
or cause such Ineffective Period to terminate, as the case may be, and deliver
such Registration Opinion and updated prospectus as soon as possible thereafter.
If at any time after a Put Notice shall have been delivered to Investor but
before the related Closing Date, the Company acquires knowledge of such Material
Facts or any Ineffective Period occurs, the Company shall promptly notify the
Investor and Investor, at Investor's sole option, shall be entitled to cancel
that entire Put Notice by facsimile notice to the Company on or before the
related Closing Period.

l. Procedure if Material Facts are Reasonably believed to be untrue or
are omitted. In the event after such consultation the Investor or the Investor's
counsel reasonably believes that the Registration Statement contains an untrue
statement or a material fact or omits a material fact required to be stated in
the Registration Statement or necessary to make the statements contained
therein, in light of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading,
(i) the Company shall file with the SEC an amendment to the Registration
Statement responsive to such alleged untrue statement or omission and provide
the Investor, as promptly as practicable, with copies of the Registration
Statement and related Prospectus, as so amended, or (ii) if the Company disputes
the existence of any such material misstatement or omission, (x) the Company's
independent counsel shall provide the Investor's counsel with a Registration
Opinion and (y) in the event the dispute relates to the adequacy of financial
disclosure and the Investor shall reasonably request, the Company's independent
auditors shall provide to the Company a letter ("Agreed Upon Procedures Report")
outlining the performance of such "agreed upon procedures" as shall be
reasonably requested by the Investor and the Company shall provide the Investor
with a copy of such letter.

m. Delisting; Suspension. If at any time during the Open Period or
within thirty (30) calendar days after the end of the Open Period, (i) the
Registration Statement, after it has been declared effective, shall not remain
effective and available for sale of all the Registrable Securities, (ii) the
Common Stock shall not be listed on the Principal Market or shall have been
suspended from trading thereon (excluding suspensions of not more than one
trading day resulting from business announcements by the Company) or the Company
shall have been notified of any pending or threatened proceeding or other action
to delist or suspend the Common Stock, (iii) there shall have occurred a Major
Transaction (as defined in Section 2(f)) or the public announcement of a pending
Major

10

<PAGE>

Transaction which has not been abandoned or terminated, or (iv) the Registration
Statement is no longer effective or stale for a period of more than five (5)
Trading Days as a result of the Company to timely file its financials, the
Investor shall have the right (the "REPURCHASE OPTION"), as partial relief for
the damages to the Investor by reason of the occurrence of the events listed in
clauses (i), (ii), (iii) or (iv)above (which remedy shall not be exclusive of
any other remedies available at law or equity), in its sole discretion, which
right shall be exercised within thirty (30) calendar days of such event or
occurrence (a "REPURCHASE EVENT"), to sell to the Company, and the Company
agrees to buy, promptly upon the exercise of such right by the Investor, but in
any event within ten (10) calendar days of the exercise of such right, and
subject to the limitations imposed by applicable federal and state law, all or
any part of the Shares issued to the Investor within the sixty (60) Trading Days
preceding the Investor's exercise of the Repurchase Option and then held by the
Investor at a price per Share equal to the highest closing price during the
period beginning on the date of the Repurchase Event and ending on and including
the date on which the Investor exercises its Repurchase Option (the "PAYMENT
AMOUNT"). If the Company fails to pay to the Investor the full aggregate Payment
Amount within ten (10) calendar days of the Investor's exercise of the
Repurchase Option hereunder, the Company shall pay to the Investor, on the first
Trading Day following such tenth (10th) calendar day, in addition to and not in
lieu of the Payment Amount payable by the Company to the Investor upon exercise
of the Repurchase Option, an amount equal to 2% of the aggregate Payment Amount
then due and payable to the Investor, in cash by wire transfer, plus compounded
annual interest of 8% on such Payment Amount during the period, beginning on the
day following such tenth calendar day, during which such Payment Amount, or any
portion thereof, is outstanding.

3. INVESTOR'S REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.

The Investor and Yorkeville jointly and severally represent and warrant
to the Company that:

a. Investment Purpose. Each of the Investor and Yorkeville is acquiring
the Securities for its own account for investment only and not with a view
towards, or for resale in connection with, the public sale or distribution
thereof, except pursuant to sales registered or exempted under the 1933 Act;
provided, however, that by making the representations herein, the Investor does
not agree to hold any of the Securities for any minimum or other specific term
and reserves the right to dispose of the Securities at any time in accordance
with or pursuant to a registration statement or an exemption under the 1933 Act.

b. Accredited Investor Status; Sophisticated Investor. Each of the
Investor and Yorkeville is an "accredited investor" as that term is defined in
Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the 1933 Act. The Investor and Yorkeville have
such knowledge, sophistication and experience in business and financial matters
so as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the prospective
investment in the Securities.

11

<PAGE>

c. Reliance on Exemptions. The Investor and Yorkeville understand that
the Securities are being offered and sold to it in reliance on specific
exemptions from the registration requirements of United States federal and state
securities laws and that the Company is relying in part upon the truth and
accuracy of, and the Investor's and Yorkeville's compliance with, the
representations, warranties, agreements, acknowledgments and understandings of
the Investor and Yorkeville set forth herein in order to determine the
availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of the Investor and
Yorkeville to acquire such Securities.

d. Information. Each of the Investor and Yorkeville and its advisors,
if any, have been furnished with or have had access to all materials relating to
the business, finances and operations of the Company and materials relating to
the offer and sale of the Securities which have been requested by the Investor
and Yorkeville. The Investor and Yorkeville and its advisors, if any, have been
afforded the opportunity to ask questions of the Company. Neither such inquiries
nor any other due diligence investigations conducted by the Investor, Yorkeville
or its advisors, if any, or its representatives shall modify, amend or affect
the Investor's or Yorkeville's right to rely on the Company's representations
and warranties contained in Section 4 below. The Investor and Yorkeville
understand that its investment in the Securities involves a high degree of risk.
The Investor and Yorkeville have sought such accounting, legal and tax advice as
it has considered necessary to make an informed investment decision with respect
to its acquisition of the Securities.

e. No Governmental Review. The Investor and Yorkeville understand that
no United States federal or state agency or any other government or governmental
agency has passed on or made any recommendation or endorsement of the Securities
or the fairness or suitability of the investment in the Securities nor have such
authorities passed upon or endorsed the merits of the offering of the
Securities.

f. Transfer or Resale. The Investor and Yorkeville understand that
except as provided in the Registration Rights Agreement: (i) the Securities have
not been and are not being registered under the 1933 Act or any state securities
laws, and may not be offered for sale, sold, assigned or transferred unless (A)
subsequently registered for resale thereunder and sold, assigned or transferred
in accordance with an effective registration statement, (B) the Investor or
Yorkeville, as the case may be, shall have delivered to the Company an opinion
of counsel, in a reasonably acceptable form, to the effect that such Securities
to be sold, assigned or transferred may be sold, assigned or transferred
pursuant to an exemption from such registration, or (C) the Investor or
Yorkeville, as the case may be, provides the Company with assurance reasonably
acceptable to the Company that such Securities can be sold, assigned or
transferred pursuant to Rule 144 promulgated under the 1933 Act (or a successor
rule thereto) ("RULE 144"); (ii) any sale of the Securities made in reliance on
Rule 144 may be made only in accordance with the terms of Rule 144 and further,
if Rule 144 is not applicable, any resale of the Securities under circumstances
in which the seller (or the person through whom the sale is made) may be deemed
to be an underwriter (as that term is defined in the 1933 Act) may require

12

<PAGE>

compliance with some other exemption under the 1933 Act or the rules and
regulations of the SEC thereunder; and (iii) neither the Company nor any other
person is under any obligation to register such Securities under the 1933 Act or
any state securities laws or to comply with the terms and conditions of any
exemption thereunder. The Investor and Yorkeville agree that the sale of the
Securities will be in compliance with all applicable state and federal
securities laws, rules and regulations and the rules and regulations of the
Principal Market, if applicable.

g. Legends. The Investor and Yorkeville understand that, until such
time as the Securities have been transferred to a person who may trade the
Shares without restriction under the 1933 Act as contemplated by the
Registration Rights Agreement, the certificates representing the Securities,
except as set forth below and in Section 8(r), shall bear a restrictive legend
in substantially the following form (and a stop-transfer order may be placed
against transfer of such stock certificates):

THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED
FOR RESALE UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR APPLICABLE
STATE SECURITIES LAWS. THE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE,
SOLD, TRANSFERRED OR ASSIGNED EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE
REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR THE RESALE OF THE SECURITIES UNDER THE
SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, AND APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES
LAWS, OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL, IN A REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE FORM, THAT
REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER SAID ACT OR APPLICABLE STATE
SECURITIES LAWS OR UNLESS SOLD PURSUANT TO RULE 144 UNDER SAID ACT.

The legend set forth above shall be removed and the Company shall issue
a certificate without such legend to the holder of the Securities upon which it
is stamped, if, unless otherwise required by state securities laws, (i) such
Securities are registered for resale under the 1933 Act, (ii) in connection with
a sale transaction, such holder provides the Company with an opinion of counsel,
in a generally acceptable form, to the effect that a public sale, assignment or
transfer of such Securities may be made without registration under the 1933 Act,
or (iii) such holder provides the Company with assurances reasonably acceptable
to the Company that such Securities can be sold pursuant to Rule 144 without any
restriction as to (A) the number of securities acquired as of a particular date
that can then be immediately sold or (B) manner of sale. Each of the Investor
and Yorkeville covenants that, in connection with any transfer of Securities by
it pursuant to an effective registration statement under the 1933 Act, it will
(i) comply with the applicable prospectus delivery requirements of the 1933 Act,
provided that copies of a current prospectus relating to such effective
registration statement are or have been supplied to the Investor and Yorkeville,
and (ii) comply with the "Plan of Distribution" section of the current
prospectus relating to such effective registration statement.

Yorkeville will comply with the provisions of Section 9 of the 1934 Act, and the
rules promulgated thereunder, with respect to transactions involving the Common
Stock.

Transaction Documents by the Investor and the consummation by the Investor of
the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby will not (i) result in a
violation of the Articles of Incorporation or the By-laws or (ii) conflict with,
or constitute a material default (or an event which with notice or lapse of time
or both would become a material default) under, or give to others any rights of
termination, amendment, acceleration or cancellation of, any material agreement,
contract, indenture mortgage, indebtedness or instrument to which the Investor
or any of its Subsidiaries is a party, or result in a violation of any law,

ADVERSE EFFECT" means any material adverse effect on the business, properties,
assets, operations, results of operations, financial condition or prospects of

remedies.

Upon issuance in accordance with this Agreement, the Securities will be validly
issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens and charges
with respect to the issue thereof. In the event the Company cannot register
16,000,000 Shares, due to the remaining number of authorized shares of Common
Stock being insufficient, the Company will use its best efforts to register the
maximum number of shares it can based on the remaining balance of authorized
shares and will use its best efforts to increase the number of its authorized
shares as soon as reasonably practicable.

e. No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance of the
Transaction Documents by the Company and the consummation by the Company of the
transactions contemplated hereby and thereby will not (i) result in a violation
of the Articles of Incorporation, any Certificate of Designations, Preferences
and Rights of any outstanding series of preferred stock of the Company or the
By-laws or (ii) conflict with, or constitute a material default (or an event
which with notice or lapse of time or both would become a material default)
under, or give to others any rights of termination, amendment, acceleration or
cancellation of, any material agreement, contract, indenture mortgage,
indebtedness or instrument to which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is a
party, or result in a violation of any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment or
decree (including United States federal and state securities laws and
regulations and the rules and regulations of the Principal Market or principal
securities exchange or trading market on which the Common Stock is traded or
listed) applicable to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or by which any
property or asset of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is bound or
affected. Except as disclosed in Schedule 4(e), neither the Company nor its
Subsidiaries is in violation of any term of, or in default under, the Articles
of Incorporation, any Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of any

by-laws, respectively, or any contract, agreement, mortgage, indebtedness,
indenture, instrument, judgment, decree or order or any statute, rule or
regulation applicable to the Company or its Subsidiaries, except for possible
conflicts, defaults, terminations, amendments, accelerations, cancellations and
violations that would not individually or in the aggregate have a Material
Adverse Effect. The business of the Company and its Subsidiaries is not being
conducted, and shall not be conducted, in violation of any law, statute,
ordinance, rule, order or regulation of any governmental authority or agency,
regulatory or self-regulatory agency, or court, except for possible violations
the sanctions for which either individually or in the aggregate would not have a
Material Adverse Effect. Except as specifically contemplated by this Agreement
and as required under the 1933 Act, the Company is not required to obtain any
consent, authorization, permit or order of, or make any filing or registration
(except the filing of a registration statement) with, any court, governmental
authority or agency, regulatory or self-regulatory agency or other third party
in order for it to execute, deliver or perform any of its obligations under, or
contemplated by, the Transaction Documents in accordance with the terms hereof
or thereof. All consents, authorizations, permits, orders, filings and

sentence have been obtained or effected on or prior to the date hereof and are
in full force and effect as of the date hereof. Except as disclosed in Schedule
4(e), the Company and its Subsidiaries are unaware of any facts or circumstances
which might give rise to any of the foregoing. The Company is not, and will not
be, in violation of the listing requirements of the Principal Market as in
effect on the date hereof and on each of the Closing Dates and is not aware of
any facts which would reasonably lead to delisting of the Common Stock by the
Principal Market in the foreseeable future.

f. SEC Documents; Financial Statements. Since February 1999, the
Company has filed all reports, schedules, forms, statements and other documents
required to be filed by it with the SEC pursuant to the reporting requirements
of the 1933 Act (all of the foregoing filed prior to the date hereof and all
exhibits included therein and financial statements and schedules thereto and
documents incorporated by reference therein being hereinafter referred to as the
"SEC DOCUMENTS"). The Company has delivered to the Investor or its
representatives, or they have had access through EDGAR, true and complete copies
of the SEC Documents. As of their respective dates, the SEC Documents complied
in all material respects with the requirements of the 1933 Act and the rules and
regulations of the SEC promulgated thereunder applicable to the SEC Documents,
and none of the SEC Documents, at the time they were filed with the SEC,
contained any untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material
fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein,
in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. As of
their respective dates, the financial statements of the Company included in the
SEC Documents complied as to form in all material respects with applicable
accounting requirements and the published rules and regulations of the SEC with
respect thereto. Such financial statements have been prepared in accordance with
generally accepted accounting principles, consistently applied, during the
periods involved (except (i) as may be otherwise indicated in such financial
statements or the notes thereto, or (ii) in the case of unaudited interim

17

<PAGE>

statements, to the extent they may exclude footnotes or may be condensed or
summary statements) and fairly present in all material respects the financial
position of the Company as of the dates thereof and the results of its
operations and cash flows for the periods then ended (subject, in the case of
unaudited statements, to normal year-end audit adjustments). No other written
information provided by or on behalf of the Company to the Investor which is not
included in the SEC Documents, including, without limitation, information
referred to in Section 4(d) of this Agreement, contains any untrue statement of
a material fact or omits to state any material fact necessary to make the
statements therein, in the light of the circumstance under which they are or
were made, not misleading.

g. Absence of Certain Changes. Except as disclosed in Schedule 4(g) or
the SEC Documents filed at least five (5) days prior to the date hereof, since
June 1, 2000, there has been no change or development in the business,
properties, assets, operations, financial condition, results of operations or
prospects of the Company or its Subsidiaries which has had or reasonably could
have a Material Adverse Effect. The Company has not taken any steps, and does
not currently expect to take any steps, to seek protection pursuant to any
bankruptcy law nor does the Company or its Subsidiaries have any knowledge or
reason to believe that its creditors intend to initiate involuntary bankruptcy
proceedings.

h. Absence of Litigation. Except as set forth in Schedule 4(h), there
is no action, suit, proceeding, inquiry or investigation before or by any court,
public board, government agency, self-regulatory organization or body pending
or, to the knowledge of the executive officers of Company or any of its
Subsidiaries, threatened against or affecting the Company, the Common Stock or
any of the Company's Subsidiaries or any of the Company's or the Company's
Subsidiaries' officers or directors in their capacities as such, in which an
adverse decision could have a Material Adverse Effect.

i. Acknowledgment Regarding Investor's Purchase of Shares. The Company
acknowledges and agrees that the Investor is acting solely in the capacity of
arm's length purchaser with respect to the Transaction Documents and the
transactions contemplated hereby and thereby. The Company further acknowledges
that the Investor is not acting as a financial advisor or fiduciary of the
Company (or in any similar capacity) with respect to the Transaction Documents
and the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby and any advice given by the
Investor or any of its respective representatives or agents in connection with
the Transaction Documents and the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby
is merely incidental to the Investor's purchase of the Securities. The Company
further represents to the Investor that the Company's decision to enter into the
Transaction Documents has been based solely on the independent evaluation by the
Company and its representatives.

j. No Undisclosed Events, Liabilities, Developments or Circumstances.

liability, development or circumstance has occurred or exists, or to its
knowledge is

<PAGE>

contemplated to occur, with respect to the Company or its Subsidiaries or their
respective business, properties, assets, prospects, operations or financial
condition, that would be required to be disclosed by the Company under
applicable securities laws on a registration statement filed with the SEC
relating to an issuance and sale by the Company of its Common Stock and which
has not been publicly announced.

k. No General Solicitation. Neither the Company, nor any of its
affiliates, nor any person acting on its or their behalf, has engaged in any
form of general solicitation or general advertising (within the meaning of

Securities.

l. No Integrated Offering. To its knowledge, neither the Company, nor
any of its affiliates, nor any person acting on its or their behalf has,
directly or indirectly, made any offers or sales of any security or solicited
any offers to buy any security, under circumstances that would require
registration under the 1933 Act of the Company's sale and issuance of the
Securities to the Investor or cause this offering of Shares to the Investor to
be integrated with prior offerings by the Company for purposes of the 1933 Act
or any applicable shareholder approval provisions, including, without
limitation, under the rules and regulations of the Principal Market, nor will
the Company or any of its Subsidiaries take any action or steps that would
require registration under the 1933 Act of the Company's sale and issuance of
the Securities to the Investor or cause the offering of the Securities to be
integrated with other offerings.

m. Employee Relations. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries
is involved in any union labor dispute nor, to the knowledge of the Company or
any of its Subsidiaries, is any such dispute threatened. Neither the Company nor
any of its Subsidiaries is a party to a collective bargaining agreement, and the
Company and its Subsidiaries believe that relations with their employees are
good. No executive officer (as defined in Rule 501(f) of the 1933 Act) has
notified the Company that such officer intends to leave the Company's employ or
otherwise terminate such officer's employment with the Company.

n. Intellectual Property Rights. The Company and its Subsidiaries own
or possess adequate rights or licenses to use all trademarks, trade names,
service marks, service mark registrations, service names, patents, patent
rights, copyrights, inventions, licenses, approvals, governmental
authorizations, trade secrets and rights necessary to conduct their respective
businesses as now conducted. Except as set forth on Schedule 4(n), none of the
Company's trademarks, trade names, service marks, service mark registrations,
service names, patents, patent rights, copyrights, inventions, licenses,
approvals, government authorizations, trade secrets or other intellectual
property rights necessary to conduct its business as now or as proposed to be
conducted have expired or terminated, or are expected to expire or terminate
within two years from the date of this Agreement. The Company and its
Subsidiaries do not have any knowledge of any infringement by the Company or its
Subsidiaries of trademark, trade name rights, patents, patent rights,
copyrights, inventions, licenses, service names, service marks, service mark

19

<PAGE>

registrations, trade secret or other similar rights of others, or of any such
development of similar or identical trade secrets or technical information by
others and, except as set forth on Schedule 4(n), there is no claim, action or
proceeding being made or brought against, or to the Company's knowledge, being
threatened against, the Company or its Subsidiaries regarding trademark, trade
name, patents, patent rights, invention, copyright, license, service names,
service marks, service mark registrations, trade secret or other infringement;
and the Company and its Subsidiaries are unaware of any facts or circumstances
which might give rise to any of the foregoing.

o. Environmental Laws. The Company and its Subsidiaries (i) are in
compliance with any and all applicable foreign, federal, state and local laws
and regulations relating to the protection of human health and safety, the
environment or hazardous or toxic substances or wastes, pollutants or
contaminants ("ENVIRONMENTAL LAWS"), (ii) have received all permits, licenses or
other approvals required of them under applicable Environmental Laws to conduct
their respective businesses and (iii) are in compliance with all terms and
conditions of any such permit, license or approval where, in each of the three
foregoing cases, the failure to so comply would have, individually or in the
aggregate, a Material Adverse Effect.

p. Title. The Company and its Subsidiaries have good and marketable
title in fee simple to all real property and good and marketable title to all
personal property owned by them which is material to the business of the Company
and its Subsidiaries, in each case free and clear of all liens, encumbrances and
defects except such as are described in Schedule 4(p) or such as do not
materially affect the value of such property and do not interfere with the use
made and proposed to be made of such property by the Company or any of its
Subsidiaries. Any real property and facilities held under lease by the Company
or any of its Subsidiaries are held by them under valid, subsisting and
enforceable leases with such exceptions as are not material and do not interfere
with the use made and proposed to be made of such property and buildings by the
Company and its Subsidiaries.

q. Insurance. The Company and each of its Subsidiaries are insured by
insurers of recognized financial responsibility against such losses and risks
and in such amounts as management of the Company believes to be prudent and
customary in the businesses in which the Company and its Subsidiaries are
engaged. Neither the Company nor any such Subsidiary has been refused any
insurance coverage sought or applied for and neither the Company nor any such
Subsidiary has any reason to believe that it will not be able to renew its
existing insurance coverage as and when such coverage expires or to obtain
similar coverage from similar insurers as may be necessary to continue its
business at a cost that would not have a Material Adverse Effect.

r. Regulatory Permits. The Company and its Subsidiaries have in full
force and effect all certificates, approvals, authorizations and permits from
the appropriate federal, state, local or foreign regulatory authorities and
comparable foreign regulatory agencies, necessary to own, lease or operate their
respective properties and assets and

20

<PAGE>

conduct their respective businesses, and neither the Company nor any such
Subsidiary has received any notice of proceedings relating to the revocation or
modification of any such certificate, approval, authorization or permit, except
for such certificates, approvals, authorizations or permits which if not
obtained, or such revocations or modifications which, would not have a Material
Adverse Effect.

s. Internal Accounting Controls. The Company and each of its
Subsidiaries maintain a system of internal accounting controls sufficient to
provide reasonable assurance that (i) transactions are executed in accordance
with management's general or specific authorizations, (ii) transactions are
recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in
conformity with generally accepted accounting principles and to maintain asset
accountability, (iii) access to assets is permitted only in accordance with
management's general or specific authorization and (iv) the recorded
accountability for assets is compared with the existing assets at reasonable
intervals and appropriate action is taken with respect to any differences.

t. No Materially Adverse Contracts, Etc. Neither the Company nor any of
its Subsidiaries is subject to any charter, corporate or other legal
restriction, or any judgment, decree, order, rule or regulation which in the
judgment of the Company's officers has or is expected in the future to have a
Material Adverse Effect. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is a
party to any contract or agreement which in the judgment of the Company's
officers has or is expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

u. Tax Status. The Company and each of its Subsidiaries has made or
filed all United States federal and state income and all other tax returns,
reports and declarations required by any jurisdiction to which it is subject
(unless and only to the extent that the Company and each of its Subsidiaries has
set aside on its books provisions reasonably adequate for the payment of all
unpaid and unreported taxes) and has paid all taxes and other governmental
assessments and charges that are material in amount, shown or determined to be
due on such returns, reports and declarations, except those being contested in
good faith and has set aside on its books provision reasonably adequate for the
payment of all taxes for periods subsequent to the periods to which such
returns, reports or declarations apply. There are no unpaid taxes in any
material amount claimed to be due by the taxing authority of any jurisdiction,
and the officers of the Company know of no basis for any such claim.

v. Certain Transactions. Except as set forth on Schedule 4(v) and in
the SEC Documents filed at least five (5) days prior to the date hereof and
except for arm's length transactions pursuant to which the Company makes
payments in the ordinary course of business upon terms no less favorable than
the Company could obtain from third parties and other than the grant of stock
options disclosed on Schedule 4(c), none of the officers, directors, or
employees of the Company is presently a party to any transaction with the
Company or any of its Subsidiaries (other than for services as employees,
officers and directors), including any contract, agreement or other arrangement
providing for the furnishing of services to or by, providing for rental of real
or personal property to or from,

21

<PAGE>

or otherwise requiring payments to or from any officer, director or such
employee or, to the knowledge of the Company, any corporation, partnership,
trust or other entity in which any officer, director, or any such employee has a
substantial interest or is an officer, director, trustee or partner.

w. Dilutive Effect. The Company understands and acknowledges that the
number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon purchases pursuant to this
Agreement will increase in certain circumstances. The Company's executive
officers and directors have studied and fully understand the nature of the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement and recognize that they have a
potential dilutive effect. The board of directors of the Company has concluded,
in its good faith business judgment, that such issuance is in the best interests
of the Company. The Company specifically acknowledges that, subject to such
limitations as are expressly set forth in the Transaction Documents, its
obligation to issue shares of Common Stock upon purchases pursuant to this
Agreement is absolute and unconditional regardless of the dilutive effect that
such issuance may have on the ownership interests of other shareholders of the
Company.

Company shall take all action necessary to at all times have authorized, and
reserved for the purpose of issuance, no less than 16,000,000 shares of Common
Stock to provide for the issuance of the Securities hereunder. In the event that
the Company determines that it does not have a sufficient number of authorized
shares of Common Stock to reserve and keep available for issuance as described
in this Section 5(f), the Company shall use its best efforts to increase the
number of authorized shares of Common Stock by seeking shareholder approval for
the authorization of such additional shares.

or more beneficial interest (each a "RELATED PARTY"), except for (i) customary
employment arrangements and benefit programs on reasonable terms, (ii) any
agreement, transaction, commitment or arrangement on an arms-length basis on
terms no less favorable than terms which would have been obtainable from a
person other than such Related Party, or (iii) any agreement, transaction,
commitment or arrangement which is approved by a majority of the disinterested
directors of the Company. For purposes hereof, any director who is also an
officer of the Company or any Subsidiary of the Company shall not be a
disinterested director with respect to any such agreement, transaction,

preserve and continue the corporate existence of the Company.

to Make a Put. The Company shall promptly notify Investor upon the occurrence of
any of the following events in respect of a Registration Statement or related
prospectus in respect of an offering of the Shares: (i) receipt of any request
for additional information by the SEC or any other federal or state governmental
authority during the period of effectiveness of the Registration Statement for
amendments or supplements to the Registration Statement or related prospectus;
(ii) the issuance by the SEC or any other federal or state governmental
authority of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of any Registration
Statement or the initiation of any proceedings for that purpose; (iii) receipt
of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification or
exemption from qualification of any of the Shares for sale in any jurisdiction
or the initiation or threatening of any proceeding for such purpose; (iv) the
happening of any event that makes any statement made in such Registration
Statement or related prospectus or any document incorporated or deemed to be
incorporated therein by reference untrue in any material respect or that
requires the making of any changes in the Registration Statement, related
prospectus or documents so that, in the case of a Registration Statement, it
will not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any
material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements
therein not misleading,

24

<PAGE>

and that in the case of the related prospectus, it will not contain any untrue
statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be
stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the
circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; and (v) the Company's
reasonable determination that a post-effective amendment to the Registration
Statement would be appropriate, and the Company shall promptly make available to
Investor any such supplement or amendment to the related prospectus. The Company
shall not deliver to Investor any Put Notice during the continuation of any of
the foregoing events.

l. Reimbursement. If (i) Investor, other than by reason of its gross
negligence or willful misconduct, becomes involved in any capacity in any
action, proceeding or investigation brought by any shareholder of the Company,
in connection with or as a result of the consummation of the transactions
contemplated by the Transaction Documents, or if Investor is impleaded in any
such action, proceeding or investigation by any person, or (ii) Investor, other
than by reason of its gross negligence or willful misconduct or by reason of its
trading of the Common Stock in a manner that is illegal under the federal
securities laws, becomes involved in any capacity in any action, proceeding or
investigation brought by the SEC against or involving the Company or in
connection with or as a result of the consummation of the transactions
contemplated by the Transaction Documents, or if Investor is impleaded in any
such action, proceeding or investigation by any person, then in any such case,
the Company will reimburse Investor for its reasonable legal and other expenses
(including the cost of any investigation and preparation) incurred in connection
therewith, as such expenses are incurred. The reimbursement obligations of the
Company under this section shall be in addition to any liability which the
Company may otherwise have, shall extend upon the same terms and conditions to
any affiliates of Investor that are actually named in such action, proceeding or
investigation, and partners, directors, agents, employees, attorneys,
accountants, auditors and controlling persons (if any), as the case may be, of
Investor and any such affiliate, and shall be binding upon and inure to the
benefit of any successors, assigns, heirs and personal representatives of the
Company, Investor and any such affiliate and any such person.

m. Dilution. The number of Shares issuable pursuant to a Put Notice may
increase substantially in certain circumstances, including, but not necessarily
limited to, the circumstance wherein the trading price of the Common Stock
declines during the period between the Effective Date and the end of the Open
Period. The Company's executive officers and directors have studied and fully
understand the nature of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and
recognize that they have a potential dilutive effect. The board of directors of
the Company has concluded, in its good faith business judgment, that such
issuance is in the best interests of the Company. The Company specifically
acknowledges that its obligation to issue the Shares upon issuance of a Put
Notice is binding upon the Company and enforceable regardless of the dilution
such issuance may have on the ownership interests of other shareholders of the
Company.

6. COVER. If the number of Shares represented by any Put Notices become

25

<PAGE>

restricted or are no longer freely trading for any reason, and after the
applicable Closing Date, the Investor purchases, in an open market transaction
or otherwise, the Company's Common Stock (the "Covering Shares") in order to
make delivery in satisfaction of a sale of Common Stock by the Investor (the
"Sold Shares"), which delivery such Investor anticipated to make using the
Shares represented by the Put Notice (a "Buy-In"), the Company shall pay to the
Investor, in lieu of the Repurchase Option, the Buy-In Adjustment Amount (as
defined below). The "Buy-In Adjustment Amount" is the amount equal to the
excess, if any, of (a) the Investor's total purchase price (including brokerage
commissions, if any) for the Covering Shares over (b) the net proceeds (after
brokerage commissions, if any) received by the Investor from the sale of the
Sold Shares. The Company shall pay the Buy-In Adjustment Amount to the Investor
in immediately available funds immediately upon demand by the Investor. By way
of illustration and not in limitation of the foregoing, if the Investor
purchases Common Stock having a total purchase price (including brokerage
commissions) of $11,000 to cover a Buy-In with respect to the Common Stock it
sold for net proceeds of $10,000, the Buy-In Adjustment Amount which the Company
will be required to pay to the Investor will be $1,000.

7. CONDITIONS OF THE COMPANY'S OBLIGATION TO SELL.

The obligation hereunder of the Company to issue and sell the Shares to
the Investor is further subject to the satisfaction, at or before each Closing
Date, of each of the following conditions set forth below. These conditions are
for the Company's sole benefit and may be waived by the Company at any time in
its sole discretion.

a. The Investor shall have executed each of this Agreement and the
Registration Rights Agreement and delivered the same to the Company on or prior

parties with prior notice of such public statement. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, the Company shall not publicly disclose the name of Investor without
the prior written consent of such Investor, except to the extent required by
law. Investor acknowledges that this Agreement and all or part of the
Transaction Documents may be deemed to be "material contracts" as that term is

be required to file such documents as exhibits to reports or registration
statements filed under the Securities 1933 Act or the 1934 Act. Investor further

employees, officers, directors, agents, and partners, and their respective

costs of preparation and attorney's fees) and expenses incurred in respect of
any such claimed or existing fees, as such fees and expenses are incurred.

n. No Strict Construction. The language used in this Agreement will be
deemed to be the language chosen by the parties to express their mutual intent,
and no rules of strict construction will be applied against any party.

o. Remedies. The Investor and each holder of the Shares shall have all
rights and remedies set forth in this Agreement and the Registration Rights
Agreement and all rights and remedies which such holders have been granted at
any time under any other agreement or contract and all of the rights which such
holders have under any law. Any person having any rights under any provision of
this Agreement shall be entitled to enforce such rights specifically (without
posting a bond or other security), to recover damages by reason of any default
or breach of any provision of this Agreement, including the recovery of
reasonable attorneys fees and costs, and to exercise all other rights granted by
law.

p. Payment Set Aside. To the extent that the Company makes a payment or
payments to the Investor hereunder or the Registration Rights Agreement or the
Investor enforces or exercises its rights hereunder or thereunder, and such
payment or payments or the proceeds of such enforcement or exercise or any part
thereof are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential,
set aside, recovered from, disgorged by or are required to be refunded, repaid
or otherwise restored to the Company, a trustee, receiver or any other person
under any law (including, without limitation, any bankruptcy law, state or
federal law, common law or equitable cause of action), then to the extent of any
such restoration the obligation or part thereof originally intended to be
satisfied shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such
payment had not been made or such enforcement or setoff had not occurred.

Registration Statement or Registration Statements (as is necessary) on Form SB-2
(or, if such form is unavailable for such a registration, on such other form as
is available for such a registration), covering the resale of all of the
Registrable Securities, which Registration Statement(s) shall state that, in
accordance with Rule 416 promulgated under the 1933 Act, such Registration
Statement(s) also covers such indeterminate number of additional shares of
Common Stock as may become issuable upon stock splits, stock dividends or
similar transactions. The Company shall initially register for resale 250,000
shares of Common Stock which would be issuable on the date preceding the filing
of the Registration Statement based on the closing bid price of the Company's
Common Stock on such date pursuant to the terms of the Investment Agreement. In
the event the Company cannot register, due to the remaining number of authorized
shares of Common Stock being insufficient, the Company will use its best efforts
to register the maximum number of shares it can based on the remaining balance
of authorized shares and will use its best efforts to increase the number of its
authorized shares as soon as reasonably practicable.

b. The Company shall use its best efforts to have the Registration
Statement(s) declared effective by the SEC within one hundred twenty (120)
calendar days after the filing thereof.

3. RELATED OBLIGATIONS.

At such time as the Company is obligated to prepare and file a
Registration Statement with the SEC pursuant to Section 2(a), the Company will
use its best efforts to effect the registration of the Registrable Securities in
accordance with the intended method of disposition

2

<PAGE>

thereof and, with respect thereto, the Company shall have the following
obligations:

a. The Company shall use its best efforts to cause such Registration
Statement relating to the Registrable Securities to become effective within one
hundred twenty (120) days after the date of the filing thereof, and shall keep
such Registration Statement effective pursuant to Rule 415 until the earlier of
(i) the date as of which the Holders may sell all of the Registrable Securities
without restriction pursuant to Rule 144(k) promulgated under the 1933 Act (or
successor thereto) or (ii) the date on which (A) the Holders shall have sold all
the Registrable Securities, and (B) the Investor has no right to acquire any
additional shares of Common Stock under the Investment Agreement, respectively
(the "Registration Period"), which Registration Statement (including any
amendments or supplements thereto and prospectuses contained therein) shall not
contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact
required to be stated therein, or necessary to make the statements therein, in
light of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading.

b. The Company shall prepare and file with the SEC such amendments
(including post-effective amendments) and supplements to a Registration
Statement and the prospectus used in connection with such Registration
Statement, which prospectus is to be filed pursuant to Rule 424 promulgated
under the 1933 Act, as may be necessary to keep such Registration Statement
effective during the Registration Period, and, during such period, comply with
the provisions of the 1933 Act with respect to the disposition of all
Registrable Securities of the Company covered by such Registration Statement
until such time as all of such Registrable Securities shall have been disposed
of in accordance with the intended methods of disposition by the seller or
sellers thereof as set forth in such Registration Statement. In the event the
number of shares of Common Stock available under a Registration Statement filed
pursuant to this Agreement is at any time insufficient to cover all of the
Registrable Securities, the Company shall amend such Registration Statement, or
file a new Registration Statement (on the short form available therefor, if
applicable), or both, so as to cover all of the Registrable Securities, in each
case, as soon as practicable, but in any event within thirty (30) calendar days
after the necessity therefor arises (based on the then Purchase Price of the
Common Stock and other relevant factors on which the Company reasonably elects
to rely), assuming the Company has sufficient authorized shares at that time,
and if it does not, within thirty (30) calendar days after such shares are
authorized. The Company shall use it best efforts to cause such amendment and/or
new Registration Statement to become effective as soon as practicable following
the filing thereof.

c. The Company shall furnish to each Holder whose Registrable
Securities are included in any Registration Statement and its legal counsel
without charge (i) upon the effectiveness of any Registration Statement, ten
(10) copies of the prospectus included in such Registration Statement and all
amendments and supplements thereto (or such other number of copies as such
Holder may reasonably request) and (ii) such other documents, including copies
of any final prospectus, as such Holder may reasonably request from time to time
in order to facilitate the disposition of the Registrable Securities owned by
such Holder.

d. The Company shall use reasonable efforts to (i) register and qualify
the Registrable Securities covered by a Registration Statement under such other
securities or "blue sky" laws of

3

<PAGE>

such states in the United States as any Holder reasonably requests, (ii) prepare
and file in those jurisdictions, such amendments (including post-effective
amendments) and supplements to such registrations and qualifications as may be
necessary to maintain the effectiveness thereof during the Registration Period,
(iii) take such other actions as may be necessary to maintain such registrations
and qualifications in effect at all times during the Registration Period, and
(iv) take all other actions reasonably necessary or advisable to qualify the
Registrable Securities for sale in such jurisdictions; provided, however, that
the Company shall not be required in connection therewith or as a condition
thereto to (x) qualify to do business in any jurisdiction where it would not
otherwise be required to qualify but for this Section 3(d), (y) subject itself
to general taxation in any such jurisdiction, or (z) file a general consent to
service of process in any such jurisdiction. The Company shall promptly notify
each Holder who holds Registrable Securities of the receipt by the Company of
any notification with respect to the suspension of the registration or
qualification of any of the Registrable Securities for sale under the securities
or "blue sky" laws of any jurisdiction in the United States or its receipt of
actual notice of the initiation or threatening of any proceeding for such
purpose.

e. As promptly as practicable after becoming aware of such event, the
Company shall notify each Holder in writing of the happening of any event as a
result of which the prospectus included in a Registration Statement, as then in
effect, includes an untrue statement of a material fact or omission to state a
material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements
therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not
misleading, ("Registration Default") and use all diligent efforts to promptly
prepare a supplement or amendment to such Registration Statement and take any
other necessary steps to cure the Registration Default, (which, if such
Registration Statement is on Form S-3, may consist of a document to be filed by
the Company with the SEC pursuant to Section 13(a), 13(c), 14 or 15(d) of the
1934 Act (as defined below) and to be incorporated by reference in the
prospectus) to correct such untrue statement or omission, and deliver ten (10)
copies of such supplement or amendment to each Holder (or such other number of
copies as such Holder may reasonably request). The Company shall also promptly
notify each Holder in writing (i) when a prospectus or any prospectus supplement
or post-effective amendment has been filed, and when a Registration Statement or
any post-effective amendment has become effective (notification of such
effectiveness shall be delivered to each Holder by facsimile on the same day of
such effectiveness and by overnight mail), (ii) of any request by the SEC for
amendments or supplements to a Registration Statement or related prospectus or
related information, and (iii) of the Company's reasonable determination that a
post-effective amendment to a Registration Statement would be appropriate.

f. The Company shall use its best efforts to prevent the issuance of
any stop order or other suspension of effectiveness of a Registration Statement,
or the suspension of the qualification of any of the Registrable Securities for
sale in any jurisdiction and, if such an order or suspension is issued, to
obtain the withdrawal of such order or suspension at the earliest possible
moment and to notify each Holder who holds Registrable Securities being sold of
the issuance of such order and the resolution thereof or its receipt of actual
notice of the initiation or threat of any proceeding for such purpose.

g. The Company shall permit each Holder and a single firm of counsel,
designated as selling

4

<PAGE>

shareholders' counsel by the Holders who hold a majority of the Registrable
Securities being sold, to review and comment upon a Registration Statement and
all amendments and supplements thereto at least three (3) business days prior to
their filing with the SEC, and not file any document in a form to which such
counsel reasonably objects. The Company shall not submit to the SEC a request
for acceleration of the effectiveness of a Registration Statement or file with
the SEC a Registration Statement or any amendment or supplement thereto without
the prior approval of such counsel, which approval shall not be unreasonably
withheld.

h. Reserved.

i. The Company shall hold in confidence and not make any disclosure of
information concerning a Holder provided to the Company unless (i) disclosure of
such information is necessary to comply with federal or state securities laws,
(ii) the disclosure of such information is necessary to avoid or correct a
misstatement or omission in any Registration Statement, (iii) the release of
such information is ordered pursuant to a subpoena or other final,
non-appealable order from a court or governmental body of competent
jurisdiction, or (iv) such information has been made generally available to the
public other than by disclosure in violation of this Agreement or any other
agreement. The Company agrees that it shall, upon learning that disclosure of
such information concerning a Holder is sought in or by a court or governmental
body of competent jurisdiction or through other means, give prompt written
notice to such Holder and allow such Holder, at the Holder's expense, to
undertake appropriate action to prevent disclosure of, or to obtain a protective
order for, such information.

j. The Company shall use its best efforts to secure designation and
quotation of all the Registrable Securities covered by any Registration
Statement on the Principal Market. If, despite the Company's best efforts, the
Company is unsuccessful in satisfying the preceding sentence, it shall use its
best efforts to cause all the Registrable Securities covered by any Registration
Statement to be listed on each other national securities exchange and automated
quotation system, if any, on which securities of the same class or series issued
by the Company are then listed, if any, if the listing of such Registrable
Securities is then permitted under the rules of such exchange or system. If,
despite the Company's best efforts, the Company is unsuccessful in satisfying
the two preceding sentences, it will use its best efforts to secure the
inclusion for quotation on the Nasdaq SmallCap Market for such Registrable
Securities and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, to arrange for
at least two market makers to register with the National Association of
Securities Dealers, Inc. as such with respect to such Registrable Securities.
The Company shall pay all fees and expenses in connection with satisfying its
obligation under this Section 3(j).

k. The Company shall cooperate with the Holders who hold Registrable
Securities being offered to facilitate the timely preparation and delivery of
certificates representing the Registrable Securities to be offered pursuant to a
Registration Statement and enable such certificates to be in such denominations
or amounts, as the case may be, as the Holders may reasonably request and
registered in such names of the Persons who shall acquire such Registrable
Securities from the Holders, as the Holders may request.

5

<PAGE>

l. The Company shall provide a transfer agent for all the Registrable
Securities not later than the effective date of the first Registration Statement
filed pursuant hereto.

m. If requested by the Holders holding a majority of the Registrable
Securities, the Company shall (i) as soon as reasonably practical incorporate in
a prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment such information as such
Holders reasonably determine should be included therein relating to the sale and
distribution of Registrable Securities, including, without limitation,
information with respect to the offering of the Registrable Securities to be
sold in such offering; (ii) make all required filings of such prospectus
supplement or post-effective amendment as soon as notified of the matters to be
incorporated in such prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment; and
(iii) supplement or make amendments to any Registration Statement if reasonably
requested by such Holders.

n. The Company shall use its best efforts to cause the Registrable
Securities covered by the applicable Registration Statement to be registered
with or approved by such other governmental agencies or authorities as may be
necessary to consummate the disposition of such Registrable Securities.

o. The Company shall otherwise use its best efforts to comply with all
applicable rules and regulations of the SEC in connection with any registration
hereunder.

p. Within one (1) business day after a Registration Statement which
includes Registrable Securities is declared effective by the SEC, the Company
shall deliver, and shall cause legal counsel for the Company to deliver, to the
transfer agent for such Registrable Securities (with copies to the Holders whose
Registrable Securities are included in such Registration Statement) confirmation
that such Registration Statement has been declared effective by the SEC in the
form attached hereto as Exhibit A.

q. The Company shall take all other reasonable actions necessary to
expedite and facilitate disposition by the Holders of Registrable Securities
pursuant to a Registration Statement.

4. OBLIGATIONS OF THE HOLDERS.

a. At least fifteen (15) calendar days prior to the first anticipated
filing date of a Registration Statement the Company shall notify each Holder in
writing of the information the Company requires from each such Holder if such
Holder elects to have any of such Holder's Registrable Securities included in
such Registration Statement. It shall be a condition precedent to the
obligations of the Company to complete the registration pursuant to this
Agreement with respect to the Registrable Securities of a particular Holder that
such Holder shall furnish in writing to the Company such information regarding
itself, the Registrable Securities held by it and the intended method of
disposition of the Registrable Securities held by it as shall reasonably be
required to effect the registration of such Registrable Securities and shall
execute such documents in connection with such registration as the Company may
reasonably request. Each Holder covenants and agrees that, in connection with
any disposition or transfer of Registrable Securities by it pursuant to a
Registration Statement, it shall comply with the "Plan of Distribution" section
of the current prospectus relating to such Registration Statement.

b. Each Holder, by such Holder's acceptance of the Registrable
Securities, agrees to cooperate with the Company as reasonably requested by the
Company in connection with the preparation and filing of any Registration
Statement hereunder, unless such Holder has notified the Company in writing of
such Holder's election to exclude all of such Holder's Registrable Securities
from such Registration Statement.

c. Each Holder agrees that, upon receipt of any notice from the Company
of the happening of any event of the kind described in Section 3(f) or the first
sentence of 3(e), such Holder will immediately discontinue disposition of
Registrable Securities pursuant to any Registration Statement(s) covering such
Registrable Securities until such Holder's receipt of the copies of the
supplemented or amended prospectus contemplated by Section 3(f) or the first
sentence of 3(e).

5. EXPENSES OF REGISTRATION.

All reasonable expenses, other than underwriting discounts and
commissions, incurred in connection with registrations, filings or
qualifications pursuant to Sections 2 and 3, including, without limitation, all
registration, listing and qualifications fees, printing and accounting fees, and
fees and disbursements of counsel for the Company shall be paid by the Company.

6. INDEMNIFICATION.

In the event any Registrable Securities are included in a Registration
Statement under this Agreement:

a. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the Company will, and hereby
does, indemnify, hold harmless and defend each Holder who holds such Registrable
Securities, the directors, officers, partners, employees, agents,
representatives of, and each Person, if any, who controls, any Holder within the
meaning of the 1933 Act or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the
"1934 Act"), (each, an "Indemnified Person"), against any losses, claims,
damages, liabilities, judgments, fines, penalties, charges, costs, attorneys'
fees, amounts paid in settlement or expenses, joint or several (collectively,
"Claims"), incurred in investigating, preparing or defending any action, claim,
suit, inquiry, proceeding, investigation or appeal taken from the foregoing by
or before any court or governmental, administrative or other regulatory agency,
body or the SEC, whether pending or threatened, whether or not an indemnified
party is or may be a party thereto ("Indemnified Damages"), to which any of them
may become subject insofar as such Claims (or actions or proceedings, whether
commenced or threatened, in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon: (i)
any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact in a
Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment thereto or in any filing
made in connection with the qualification of the offering under the securities
or other "blue sky" laws of any jurisdiction in which Registrable Securities are
offered ("Blue Sky Filing"), or the omission or alleged omission to state a
material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements
therein, in light of the circumstances under which the statements therein were
made, not misleading, (ii) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a
material fact contained in the final prospectus (as amended or supplemented, if
the Company files any amendment

7

<PAGE>

thereof or supplement thereto with the SEC) or the omission or alleged omission
to state therein any material fact necessary to make the statements made
therein, in light of the circumstances under which the statements therein were
made, not misleading, or (iii) any violation or alleged violation by the Company
of the 1933 Act, the 1934 Act, any other law, including, without limitation, any
state securities law, or any rule or regulation thereunder relating to the offer
or sale of the Registrable Securities pursuant to a Registration Statement (the
matters in the foregoing clauses (i) through (iii) being, collectively,
"Violations"). Subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 6(c) with
respect to the number of legal counsel, the Company shall reimburse the Holders
and each such controlling person, promptly as such expenses are incurred and are
due and payable, for any reasonable legal fees or other reasonable expenses
incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any such Claim.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the indemnification
agreement contained in this Section 6(a): (i) shall not apply to a Claim arising
out of or based upon a Violation which occurs in reliance upon and in conformity
with information furnished in writing to the Company by any Indemnified Person
expressly for use in connection with the preparation of the Registration
Statement or any such amendment thereof or supplement thereto, if such
prospectus were timely made available by the Company pursuant to Section 3(c);
(ii) shall not be available to the extent such Claim is based on (a) a failure
of the Holder to deliver or to cause to be delivered the prospectus made
available by the Company or (b) the Indemnified Person's use of an incorrect
prospectus despite being promptly advised in advance by the Company in writing
not to use such incorrect prospectus; and (iii) shall not apply to amounts paid
in settlement of any Claim if such settlement is effected without the prior
written consent of the Company, which consent shall not be unreasonably
withheld. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any
investigation made by or on behalf of the Indemnified Person and shall survive
the transfer of the Registrable Securities by the Holders pursuant to Section 9.

b. In connection with any Registration Statement in which a Holder is
participating, each such Holder agrees to severally and not jointly indemnify,
hold harmless and defend, to the same extent and in the same manner as is set
forth in Section 6(a), the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers
who signs the Registration Statement, each Person, if any, who controls the
Company within the meaning of the 1933 Act or the 1934 Act (collectively and
together with an Indemnified Person, an "Indemnified Party"), against any Claim
or Indemnified Damages to which any of them may become subject, under the 1933
Act, the 1934 Act or otherwise, insofar as such Claim or Indemnified Damages
arise out of or are based upon any Violation, in each case to the extent, and
only to the extent, that such Violation occurs in reliance upon and in
conformity with written information furnished to the Company by such Holder
expressly for use in connection with such Registration Statement; and, subject
to Section 6(c), such Holder will reimburse any legal or other expenses
reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any
such Claim; provided, however, that the indemnity agreement contained in this
Section 6(b) and the agreement with respect to contribution contained in Section
7 shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any Claim if such settlement
is effected without the prior written consent of such Holder, which consent
shall not be unreasonably withheld; provided, further, however, that the Holder
shall be liable under this Section 6(b) for only that amount of a Claim or
Indemnified Damages as does not exceed the net proceeds to such Holder as a
result of the sale of Registrable Securities pursuant to such Registration
Statement.

8

<PAGE>

Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any
investigation made by or on behalf of such Indemnified Party and shall survive
the transfer of the Registrable Securities by the Holders pursuant to Section 9.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the indemnification
agreement contained in this Section 6(b) with respect to any preliminary
prospectus shall not inure to the benefit of any Indemnified Party if the untrue
statement or omission of material fact contained in the preliminary prospectus
were corrected on a timely basis in the prospectus, as then amended or
supplemented.

c. Promptly after receipt by an Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party
under this Section 6 of notice of the commencement of any action or proceeding
(including any governmental action or proceeding) involving a Claim, such
Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party shall, if a Claim in respect thereof is
to be made against any indemnifying party under this Section 6, deliver to the
indemnifying party a written notice of the commencement thereof, and the
indemnifying party shall have the right to participate in, and, to the extent
the indemnifying party so desires, jointly with any other indemnifying party
similarly noticed, to assume control of the defense thereof with counsel
mutually satisfactory to the indemnifying party and the Indemnified Person or
the Indemnified Party, as the case may be; provided, however, that an
Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party shall have the right to retain its own
counsel with the fees and expenses to be paid by the indemnifying party, if, in
the reasonable opinion of counsel retained by the indemnifying party, the
representation by such counsel of the Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party
and the indemnifying party would be inappropriate due to actual or potential
differing interests between such Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party and any
other party represented by such counsel in such proceeding. The indemnifying
party shall pay for only one separate legal counsel for the Indemnified Persons
or the Indemnified Parties, as applicable, and such counsel shall be selected by
Holders holding a majority-in-interest of the Registrable Securities included in
the Registration Statement to which the Claim relates, if the Holders are
entitled to indemnification hereunder, or the Company, if the Company is
entitled to indemnification hereunder, as applicable. The Indemnified Party or
Indemnified Person shall cooperate fully with the indemnifying party in
connection with any negotiation or defense of any such action or claim by the
indemnifying party and shall furnish to the indemnifying party all information
reasonably available to the Indemnified Party or Indemnified Person which
relates to such action or claim. The indemnifying party shall keep the
Indemnified Party or Indemnified Person fully appraised at all times as to the
status of the defense or any settlement negotiations with respect thereto. No
indemnifying party shall be liable for any settlement of any action, claim or
proceeding effected without its written consent, provided, however, that the
indemnifying party shall not unreasonably withhold, delay or condition its
consent. No indemnifying party shall, without the consent of the Indemnified
Party or Indemnified Person, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any
settlement or other compromise which does not include as an unconditional term
thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnified Party or
Indemnified Person of a release from all liability in respect to such Claim.
Following indemnification as provided for hereunder, the indemnifying party
shall be surrogated to all rights of the Indemnified Party or Indemnified Person
with respect to all third parties, firms or corporations relating to the matter
for which indemnification has been made. The failure to deliver written notice
to the indemnifying party within a reasonable time of the commencement of any
such action shall not relieve such indemnifying party of any liability to the
Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party

9

<PAGE>

under this Section 6, except to the extent that the indemnifying party is
prejudiced in its ability to defend such action.

d. The indemnification required by this Section 6 shall be made by
periodic payments of the amount thereof during the course of the investigation
or defense, as and when bills are received or Indemnified Damages are incurred.

e. The indemnity agreements contained herein shall be in addition to
(i) any cause of action or similar right of the Indemnified Party or Indemnified
Person against the indemnifying party or others, and (ii) any liabilities the
indemnifying party may be subject to pursuant to the law.

7. CONTRIBUTION.

To the extent any indemnification by an indemnifying party is
prohibited or limited by law, the indemnifying party agrees to make the maximum
contribution with respect to any amounts for which it would otherwise be liable
under Section 6 to the fullest extent permitted by law; provided, however, that:
(i) no contribution shall be made under circumstances where the maker would not
have been liable for indemnification under the fault standards set forth in
Section 6; (ii) no seller of Registrable Securities guilty of fraudulent
misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the 1933 Act) shall be
entitled to contribution from any seller of Registrable Securities who was not
guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation; and (iii) contribution by any seller of
Registrable Securities shall be limited in amount to the net amount of proceeds
received by such seller from the sale of such Registrable Securities.

8. REPORTS UNDER THE 1934 ACT.

With a view to making available to the Holders the benefits of Rule 144
promulgated under the 1933 Act or any other similar rule or regulation of the
SEC that may at any time permit the Holders to sell securities of the Company to
the public without registration ("Rule 144"), the Company agrees to:

a. make and keep public information available, as those terms are
understood and defined in Rule 144; and

b. file with the SEC in a timely manner all reports and other documents
required of the Company under the 1933 Act and the 1934 Act so long as the
Company remains subject to such requirements (it being understood that nothing
herein shall limit the Company's obligations under Section 4(c) of the
Investment Agreement) and the filing of such reports and other documents is
required for the applicable provisions of Rule 144.

9. ASSIGNMENT OF REGISTRATION RIGHTS.

The rights under this Agreement shall be automatically assignable by
the Holders to any transferee of all or any portion of Registrable Securities if
(i) the Holder agrees in writing with the transferee or assignee to assign such
rights, and a copy of such agreement is furnished to the

10

<PAGE>

Company within a reasonable time after such assignment; (ii) the Company is,
within a reasonable time after such transfer or assignment, furnished with
written notice of (a) the name and address of such transferee or assignee, and
(b) the Registrable Securities with respect to which such registration rights
are being transferred or assigned; (iii) immediately following such transfer or
assignment the further disposition of such Registrable Securities by the
transferee or assignee is restricted under the 1933 Act and applicable state
securities laws; (iv) at or before the time the Company receives the written
notice contemplated by clause (ii) of this sentence the transferee or assignee
agrees in writing with the Company to be bound by all of the provisions
contained herein; and (v) such transfer shall have been made in accordance with
the applicable requirements of the Investment Agreement.

10. AMENDMENT OF REGISTRATION RIGHTS.

Provisions of this Agreement may be amended and the observance thereof
may be waived (either generally or in a particular instance and either
retroactively or prospectively), only with the written consent of the Company
and Holders who hold a majority of the Registrable Securities. Any amendment or
waiver effected in accordance with this Section 10 shall be binding upon each
Holder and the Company. No such amendment shall be effective to the extent that
it applies to less than all of the Holders of the Registrable Securities. No
consideration shall be offered or paid to any Person to amend or consent to a
waiver or modification of any provision of any of this Agreement unless the same
consideration also is offered to all of the parties to this Agreement.

11. MISCELLANEOUS.

a. A Person is deemed to be a Holder of Registrable Securities whenever
such Person owns of record such Registrable Securities. If the Company receives
conflicting instructions, notices or elections from two or more Persons with
respect to the same Registrable Securities, the Company shall act upon the basis
of instructions, notice or election received from the registered owner of such
Registrable Securities.

b. Any notices, consents, waivers or other communications required or
permitted to be given under the terms of this Agreement must be in writing and
will be deemed to have been delivered (i) upon receipt, when delivered
personally; (ii) upon receipt, when sent by facsimile (provided a confirmation
of transmission is mechanically or electronically generated and kept on file by
the sending party); or (iii) one (1) day after deposit with a nationally
recognized overnight delivery service, in each case properly addressed to the
party to receive the same. The addresses and facsimile numbers for such

remainder of this Agreement in that jurisdiction or the validity or

agreement among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and
thereof. There are no restrictions, promises, warranties or undertakings, other

our knowledge, after telephonic inquiry of a member of the SEC's staff, no stop

Woburn, Massachusetts 01801
Attention: Morris A. Shepard, Ph.D.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Pursuant to the terms of an Investment Agreement dated as of March 22,
2001 (the "Agreement") among booktech.com, inc., a Nevada corporation (the
"Company") and Cornell Capital Partners, L.P., a New York limited partnership,
the undersigned will receive 250,000 shares of Common Stock, $.00042 par value
per share, of the Company (the "Shares").

In order to induce the Company to enter into the Agreement, the
undersigned hereby agrees as follows:

1. Except as expressly set forth in this paragraph 1 and in paragraph 2
below, each Share may not be sold, transferred, hypothecated, pledged, be the
subject of an equity swap, option or warrant, put, put equivalent position or
similar agreement or otherwise be transferred or disposed of (collectively, a
"Disposition") without the prior written consent of the Company, prior to the
six-month anniversary of the Effective Date (as defined in the Agreement) (the
"Restricted Period"). The foregoing restriction is expressly agreed to preclude
the undersigned from engaging in any hedging or other transaction which is
designed or reasonably expected to lead to or result in a Disposition of the
Shares, even if such Shares would be disposed of by someone other than the
undersigned. Such prohibited hedging or other transactions would include,
without limitation, any short sale or any purchase, sale or grant of any right
(including, without limitation, any put or call option) with respect to any
security that includes, relates to or derives any significant part of its value
from such Shares. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the undersigned is allowed to
cause a Disposition in a public sale of up to 10,000 Shares each week during the
Restricted Period.

2. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the
undersigned may cause a Disposition of any number of the Shares in one or more
private transactions; provided however, that in the event that the undersigned
desires to effect such a private transaction (or transactions), (i) the
undersigned shall provide at least three (3) days prior written notice to the
Company, (ii) the transferee of the undersigned shall be required to become
bound by the terms of this Resale Restriction Agreement through the remainder of
the Restricted Period by executing a copy of this Resale Restriction Agreement
contemporaneously with such private transaction and (iii) the undersigned and
all of its transferees who obtain Shares in such private transactions (and any
of their subsequent transferees who acquire any Shares during the Restricted
Period

<PAGE>

pursuant to a private transaction) shall not be permitted to effect public sales
of more than an aggregate of 10,000 Shares per week during the remainder of the
Restricted Period.

3. The undersigned acknowledges that the Company may impose stock
transfer restrictions on the Shares with the Company's stock transfer agent
and/or place stock legends on the certificates representing the Shares to
enforce the provisions of this Agreement.

Very truly yours,

Yorkeville Advisors Management, L.L.C.

and validly existing under, and by virtue of, the laws of the State of Nevada
and is in good standing under such laws. The Company is duly qualified or
licensed as a corporation in good standing under the laws of each jurisdiction
wherein failure to so qualify could reasonably be expected to have a Materially
Adverse Effect (as defined below). The Company has the requisite corporate power
to own and operate its properties and assets, and to carry on its business as
presently conducted and as proposed to be conducted.

2.2 Corporate Power. The Company will have at the Closing all requisite
legal and corporate power to execute and deliver this Agreement, to issue the
Note and to carry out and perform its obligations under the terms of this
Agreement and the Note.

2.3 Authorization. As soon as possible following the Closing, the
execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the Note by the
Company will be duly ratified by all requisite corporate action, so that it will
constitute the valid and binding obligations of the Company enforceable against

to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, or similar laws relating

binding upon the Company or upon any assets or property of

<PAGE>

the Company for which the Company has obtained the necessary consent or waiver
of the other parties to such agreement or instrument.

2.5 Full Disclosure. To the knowledge of the Company, all factual
information heretofore or contemporaneously furnished by the Company to the
Lender for purposes of or in connection with this Agreement or any transaction
contemplated hereby is true and accurate in every material respect on the date
as of which such information is dated or certified, and the Company has not

company" or a company "controlled" by an "investment company," within the
meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, (b) a "holding
company" or a "subsidiary company" of a holding company within the meaning of
the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935, as amended, or (iii) otherwise
subject to any regulatory scheme which restricts its ability to incur debt.

franchises and other governmental authorizations necessary to the ownership of
its properties or to the conduct of its businesses, including without limitation
all licenses, permits, franchises and other governmental authorizations required

which could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

2.8 Financial Statements. On or prior to the date of this Agreement, the
Company has furnished to the Lender its balance sheet and consolidating
statements of income, earnings, stockholders equity and cash flows (i) as of and
for the fiscal year ended December 31, 1999, and (ii) as of and for the fiscal
quarter(s) and the portion of the fiscal year ended September 30, 2000,

(financial or otherwise) of the Company, (b) the ability of the Company to
perform its obligations under this Agreement or the Note, or (c) the validity or
enforceability of this Agreement or the Note or the rights and remedies of the
Lender under this Agreement or the Note.
