Re:

Marketing Agent Agreement


Dear Mr. Vishwanath:


This Marketing Agreement (the “Marketing Agreement”) is written to confirm the agreement between Smarte Solutions, Inc (the "Company" or "Client") and Gray Capital Partners, LLC ("GCP") regarding the Company’s intent to conduct a public offering of its common stock (the "Offering"), whereby GCP will participate as a financial advisor in the offering to raise  a minimum of $2,500,000 and a maximum of  $5,000,000 (“GCP Raise”), in accordance with the terms outlined in Exhibit B attached.


We hereby confirm the interest of GCP in acting on a best efforts basis as the Company's exclusive financial advisor in connection with the Offering.  This letter sets forth selected terms of our engagement.


1.

Offering Services. As the Company's exclusive marketing agent, GCP will provide the Company with a comprehensive program of services designed to promote an orderly equity distribution. GCP will provide financial and logistical advice to the Company concerning the Offering and related issues. Such services shall include those listed in Exhibit A, which is attached hereto and made a part hereof for all purposes. We propose that the pricing of the Common Stock be $0.36 per share, unless otherwise determined by the Company.


2.

Preparation of Offering Documents. The Company will draft the Registration Statement and other materials to be used in connection with the Offering.  GCP will attend meetings to review these documents and assist the Company with its preparation.  


3.

Due Diligence Review. Prior to the filing of the Registration Statement, or any amendment thereto, which includes GCP's name or any other document naming GCP as the Company's financial advisor and marketing agent, GCP and its representatives will undertake substantial investigations to learn about the Company's business and operations ("due diligence review") in order to confirm information provided to us and to evaluate information to be contained in the Company's Registration Statement.  The Company agrees that it will make available to GCP all relevant information, whether or not publicly available, which GCP reasonably requests, and will permit GCP to discuss personnel and the operations and prospects of the Company with management. GCP will treat all proprietary, trade secret and other non-public information of the Company as confidential. The Company acknowledges that GCP will rely upon the accuracy and completeness of all information received from the Company, its officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives, accountants and counsel.  GCP will submit documents which it prepares at the request of the Company to the Company for its review and approval prior to use in negotiations with or release to prospective interested investors.  GCP will not release any prepared documents to prospective investors if the Company believes that such documents would violate applicable federal or state securities laws.  To the extent such documents have been released to one or  more prospective investors, GCP agrees to use its best commercial efforts to recall all distributed documents or distribute any amendment necessary to gain compliance with applicable law.


4.

Regulatory Filings. Upon satisfactory completion of GCP's due diligence review, a Company Registration Statement with respect to the Offering may be filed if so determined by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and such state securities commissioners as may be determined by the Company.  No filings naming GCP as the Company's investment banker shall be made without the prior written consent of GCP, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.



5.

Representations, Warranties and Covenants. The Marketing Agent Agreement will provide for customary representations, warranties and covenants by the Company, including, without limitation, with respect to indemnification and contribution.


6.

Exclusivity.  GCP and the Company collectively agree that GCP will have the exclusive right from the date of this Marketing Agreement through December 31, 2004 to provide investment banking and financial advisory services to the Company with respect to financing and/or mergers and acquisitions transactions originated by GCP (a "Transaction"), with the fees for such transactions to be determined based on the success fees calculated below.  Notwithstanding such expiration dates, this Marketing Agreement, including the right to arrange the Offering with interested prospects originated by GCP, will remain in full force and effective for a period of twelve months from the time of termination of this Marketing Agreement. In the event the Company desires to terminate the agreement with GCP for reasons other than Termination for Cause or Termination for Performance (defined below) in order to conduct a trans action with: Install Shield Corporation or Digital River within the first nine months following the signing of this Engagement Agreement, the Company agrees to pay GCP the aggregate amount of actual expenses incurred to date as well as a termination fee of $250,000


7.

Fees.  For the services hereunder, the Company shall pay the following fees to GCP:


a)

The Company will bear expenses of the proposed offering customarily borne by issuers, including, without limitation, SEC, "Blue Sky," NASDAQ, American Stock Exchange and NASD filing and registration fees; the fees of the Company's accountants, attorneys, transfer agent and registrar, printing, mailing and marketing expenses associated with the Offering.  These fees, referred to as the Financial Advisory Fee, are anticipated to be upto $75,000 in aggregate. Should the Offering be terminated for any reason not attributable to the action or inaction of GCP, GCP shall be entitled to be reimbursed for its reasonable out-of-pocket expenses through the date the termination occurred, including any accrued and reasonable legal fees expended by GCP subject to the aggregate limit in Section 8 hereof. The Company may retain independent service providers to perform such legal, accounting, audit and documentation preparation s required to conduct the Offering.  In the event that the Company elects to retain its own service providers, appropriate adjustments will be made to the Financial Advisory Fee in accordance with the anticipated fees for service detailed in the timeline identified in Exhibit C.


A success fee shall be charged based on the aggregate purchase price of the Company’s common stock sold in the Offering as related to GCP Raise only as follows:  (i) 7% of such amount in cash, (ii) 1% of such amount in common stock of the Company, (iii) 7% of such amount in warrants to purchase common stock of the Company at a per share exercise price equal to the per share price of the Company’s common stock sold in the Offering and (iv) 4% of such amount in warrants to purchase common stock of the Company at a per share exercise price equal to the per share price of the Company’s common stock sold in the offering multiplied by 165%.  The cash and equity components of the success fee are due and payable at the closing of the Offering, pursuant to the written instructions of GCP, with the cash success fee payable from proceeds.  The Warrants represented at 100% of the offering price will have a term of twelve month s from the date of Registration of the initial offering.  The Warrants represented at 165% of the offering price will have a term of eighteen months from the date of Registration of the same initial offering.


b)

GCP, at its sole discretion, may decide to utilize selected broker-dealers to participate in the Offering.  In the event that GCP exercises its right to utilize other parties in the Offering, it will be GCP’s obligation to pay the other parties out of the compensation to be received under the terms of this agreement due GCP.


8.

Future Sales. It is understood that during the period of the proposed Offering, the Company will not sell any equity without GCP's prior written consent which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.  Prior to the effective date of the Registration Statement, the Company will cause all of its officers and directors and [greater than 5%] shareholders to enter into an undertaking with GCP pursuant to the terms of which such shareholder will agree he will not sell any shares owned directly or indirectly by him to the public for a time period and according to the plan as defined in Exhibit D from the date of the definitive Prospectus used in the Offering without GCP 's prior written consent.  


9.

Progress and Reporting.  GCP will report regularly on the status of the matter, and on significant developments as they occur as they relate to the milestone and timeline commitments identified in Exhibit C.  It is also regular practice to provide the Company with copies of all significant documents, and to inform the Company of all significant communications in the matter.  GCP will forward  written communications to Mr. Bala Vishwanath  GCP requests that Mr. Vishwanath remain in close contact with GCP, further requesting that Mr. Vishwanath be available for consultation as developments occur, and to instruct and give GCP authority as necessary and advisable in the Company's discretion.  If  there are any questions or concerns about the matter, it is requested that they are raised immediately in order to be addressed and resolved promptly and effectively.


GCP will communicate from time to time with clients using telecopiers, cell telephones and email.  These forms of communication are not secure against unauthorized access.  These forms of communication do not ensure the confidentiality of their contents and there is therefore some risk of disclosure and loss of confidentiality or attorney-client privilege in using these forms of communication. Objections to using any one or more of these forms of communication should be made known immediately.  The Company does not waive any confidentiality or attorney-client privilege by virtue of this Agreement or the use of such forms of communications.


10.

Record Retention.  At the conclusion of this matter, GCP will return any related valuable property which has been entrusted to us.  GCP will dispose of any and all superfluous documents consistent with maintaining the confidentiality of the contents of those documents.


11.

Conditions. GCP's willingness and obligation to proceed hereunder shall be subject to, among other things, GCP’s satisfaction (which shall be determined in good faith by GCP after reasonable determination and consideration of all relevant factors) of the following conditions:  (a) full and satisfactory disclosure of all relevant material financial and other information in the disclosure documents; (b) no material adverse change in the condition or operations of the Company subsequent to GCP 's due diligence review; (c) no market conditions at the time of Offering which in GCP's opinion make the sale of the shares by the Company inadvisable; (d) the agreement between the Company and GCP as to the offering price and (e) the capital structure of the Company shall be acceptable to GCP.


In addition to the above, the Company understands and agrees that if, at any time from the effective date of this Offering as defined in Exhibit D, it should file a registration statement with the SEC, or a Notification on Form 1-A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), the Company, at its own expense, shall offer to the holders of the warrants mentioned above the opportunity to register or qualify the common stock issuable upon the exercise of the warrants in such registration statement, limited in the case of a Regulation A Offering to the amount of the available exemption.  In the event that the Company becomes eligible to register its common stock on Form S-3 under the Securities Act, the holder of warrants may demand that the Company register its common stock issuable upon the exercise of the warrant with the SEC on Form S-3.  The minimum offering size of any registration on Form S-3 shall be $1,000,000.  The Company may defer a Form S-3 filing for up to ninety days once during any twelve month period.   No more than two Form S-3 registrations are permitted during any one twelve month period.

TIMELINE AND PLAN FOR SALE OF STOCK



RULE 144 LANGUAGE

All prior shareholders will be subject to Rule 144 from the effective date of the Offering.  Generally speaking, Rule 144 now provides an exemption from treatment as an underwriter for shareholders who resell their securities one (1) year following the original purchase from the issuer or an affiliate of the issuer.  Sales made after the one (1) year holding period must be made in market transactions or through a market maker, and such sales may require an opinion of counsel relative to the selling shareholders’ satisfactory compliance with the method of sale requirements, and the limitation on the number of shares being sold in accordance with the provisions of Rule 144.  Additionally, resale of the securities may be made only upon a registration of the securities, or upon satisfactorily demonstrating that an exemption from registration exists.  Generally speaking, during the first one (1) year after acquiring restrict ed securities, transfers may be made only on a limited, private basis not involving market transactions and if transfers are made, the securities will be reissued with restrictive legend.  Resale of securities issued without restrictive legends will likely be exempt from registration under federal and state law.




RESTRICTIVE LEGEND


THESE SECURITIES HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED PURSUANT TO AN INVESTMENT REPRESENTATION BY THE HOLDER AND SHALL NOT BE SOLD, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED OR DONATED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED, EXCEPT UPON THE ISSUANCE TO SMARTE SOLUTIONS, CORP.  A FAVORABLE OPINION OF COUNSEL AND THE SUBMISSION TO THE COMPANY OF OTHER EVIDENCE, SATISFACTORY TO IT AND AS REQUIRED BY COUNSEL TO THE COMPANY, THAT ANY SUCH TRANSFER WILL NOT VIOLATE THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED AND APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS.





PERFORMANCE WINDOW AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

GCP acknowledges that it is aware that the Company may choose to adopt a Board resolution that would potentially allow for the Early Sale of a minority percentage of shares held by certain key investors in the event the public stock price achieves certain performance objectives.  For the purposes of this document, Early Sale shall mean the sale of shares into the public markets prior to the 12 month lock-up restriction generally known to be placed on the Rule 144 shares or prior to such time periods dictated by NASD and SEC regulations for stock held beyond a certain time period.  Any potential Early Sale would have to be conducted in concert with all NASD and SEC regulations permitting such sale.  GCP further acknowledges that it is aware that the Company may further choose to adopt a Board resolution that would govern Shorting of the Company stock by certain parties and Board resolution that would govern Take Over transactions of the Company stock in the public market.
