1999, and before January 8th, 2001 fully paid and non-assessable shares of
common stock of the Company as follows: Up to January 8th, 2000 the warrant
conversion price will be $1.00 per share; thereafter any unconverted warrants
will be converted at a price of $1.25 per share up to and including January

Exercise of Warrant. The purchase rights of this Warrant shall be
exercised by the Holder surrendering this Warrant duly executed to the
Company, accompanied by payment of the purchase price of the common stock
being purchased. If less than all of the common stock is purchased and this
Warrant has not expired, the Company will execute and deliver to the Holder a
new Warrant showing the number of shares remaining on the Warrant. Within a
reasonable time, not to exceed ten (10) days, after the exercise of this
Warrant, the Company will issue in the name of the Holder, or as the Holder
may direct, a certificate or certificates representing the shares purchased.
Unless the shares are registered under State and Federal securities laws, or

No fractional shares of common stock will be issued on the exercise of
this Warrant, but the Company shall pay a cash adjustment based on the market
price of the common stock on the date of exercise of the Warrant.
In no event may all or any part of the rights of this Warrant be
exercised before January 8th, 1999, nor after January 8th, 2001.
Negotiability. This Warrant may be assigned or transferred by the
Holder without prior consent or approval from the Company.
Until this Warrant is transferred the Company may treat the registered
Holder as absolute owner for all purposes without being affected by any notice
to the contrary.
This Warrant shall not be transferred except in compliance with all
applicable state and federal laws and regulations. The Company understands
that the Holder is acquiring the Warrant for investment purposes only, and has
no present intent to transfer all or any part of the Warrant. The Warrant may
not be transferred without the Holder obtaining an opinion of counsel
satisfactory to the Company stating that the transaction will not result in a
prohibitive transaction under the Federal and State securities laws. This
Warrant has not been registered under any securities laws.
Adjustment of Purchase Price; Reorganization, etc. In case the Company
shall subdivide or combine the outstanding shares of common stock, or declare
a dividend payable in common stock, the exercise price of this Warrant shall
be proportionately increased in the case of combination, or decreased in the
case of subdivision or dividend payable in common stock; each share of common
stock shall be changed to the number of shares determined by dividing the
Exercise Price by the exercise price as adjusted after the subdivision,
combination or dividend.
In case of any capital reorganization or reclassification of the shares
of common stock of the Company, or in case or any consolidation or merger of
the Company into another corporation, then provision shall be made so that the
Holder of the Warrant shall have the right to receive the kind and amount of
shares he would have been entitled to receive if immediately before the
reorganization, reclassification, consolidation or merger, he had held the
number of shares of common stock which were purchasable by this Warrant. In
any case, appropriate adjustment shall be made in the application of these
provisions as nearly as reasonably may be in relation to any shares of stock
deliverable on the exercise of this Warrant.
When any adjustment is made in the exercise price, the Company shall
determine the new exercise price, and (1) retain on file a statement
describing the method used to arrive at the adjusted price; and (2) mail a
copy to the Holder on request.
Registration Rights. The Holder agrees that before making any
disposition of any common stock purchased by this Warrant, it will give
written notice to the Company describing the manner of such disposition, and
it will not make any disposition until (1) the Company has notified it that
registration is not required to such disposition, or (2) a registration of the
proposed disposition has been filed by the Company and has become effective.
The Company agrees that upon receipt of written notice from the Holder it will
use its best efforts, in consultation with Holder=s counsel, to ascertain
whether or not registration is required.
The Company also agrees that if, before one year from the effective date
of this Registration, if it will file a Registration Statement, it will notify
the Holder in writing at least 30 days before such filing and it will include
in the registration, at its expense, the stock issuable upon the Warrant to
the extent requested by the Holder. Any such request shall be for at least
5,000 of the shares represented by the Warrant. It is also agreed that the
right of the Holder to have the shares issued in a future registration may be
deferred for a reasonable period for reasonable cause; provided, however,
that a deferral shall automatically extend the right of the Holder to
participate in a future public offering, and that the deferral shall not
exceed six (6) months.
The Company shall furnish the Holder with a reasonable number of copies
of the prospectus included in the filing. The Company shall also take
necessary steps to include the shares in any other Blue Sky registration in
such jurisdictions as the Holder may reasonably request.
The Company and the Holder shall provide cross indemnification
agreements in customary scope covering the accuracy and completeness of the
information furnished by each in any registration.
The Holder agrees to cooperate fully with the Company in the preparation
and filing of any registration.
Notices. The Company shall mail to the registered Holder of the
Warrant, at its last post office address, not less than ten (10) days before
notice of the date: (1) a record determining the holders of common stock
entitled to dividends (other than cash dividends), or (2) a record determining
the holders of common stock entitled to notice of and to vote at a meeting of
stockholders at which any capital reorganization, reclassification,
consolidation, merger, dissolution, liquidation, winding up or sale shall be
considered or voted upon.
Reservation of Common Stock. A number of shares of common stock
sufficient to provide for the exercise of the Warrant shall at all times be
reserved by the Company.

any rights as a shareholder of the Company, or any other rights not stated in
Miscellaneous. Any reference to the issue or sale of shares of common
stock shall include any stock of any class of the Company except preferred
stock with a fixed limit on dividends and a fixed amount payable in the event
of any liquidation of the Company.
The Company will not, by amendment of its Articles of Incorporation or
through reorganization, consolidation, merger, dissolution or sale of assets,
or by any other voluntary act, avoid or seek to avoid the performance of any
of the covenants to be performed by the Company, but will in good faith assist
in the carrying out of the provisions of this Warrant, and in the taking of
all other action that may be necessary to protect the rights of the Holder
against dilution. This protection against dilution shall not include any
adjustments resulting from a decrease in the market price of the common stock
of the Company. This Warrant is binding on the Company, its successors and
