2. Term of Employment. Employee’s employment by OMNI pursuant to this Agreement shall continue in effect until December 31, 2010 (the “Initial Period”), which shall be automatically extended for additional, successive one year periods (the “Additional Periods”), unless either party gives notice of non-renewal as provided in Section 6(d) or otherwise terminates this Agreement in accordance with the other provisions of Section 6.

3. Representations and Warranties. Employee represents and warrants that Employee is under no contractual or other restrictions or obligations that will limit Employee’s activities on behalf of OMNI or will prohibit or limit the disclosure or use by Employee of any information which directly or indirectly relates to the business of OMNI or the services to be rendered by Employee under this Agreement.

4. Compensation. Subject to the provisions of Section 6, Employee will be entitled to the compensation and benefits set forth in this Section 4.

In each Additional Period, OMNI shall pay to Employee an Annual Base Salary (not less than $130,000 per year) determined by the OMNI Board of Directors following its annual salary and performance review. Employee’s Annual Base Salary will be reviewed annually in the second quarter of each fiscal year of Employee’s employment hereunder, commencing in the second quarter of fiscal year 2008.

(b) Employee shall be eligible to receive an annual bonus commencing with calendar year 2008. The bonus targets will be generated by OMNI’s CEO, approved by the OMNI Board of Directors, and presented to Employee on or before April 1 of the bonus year. The bonus will be determined and if appropriate, awarded by the Board during each calendar year beginning with the 2008 calendar year, but will be paid following the closing of the books and records of OMNI for each such calendar year, but not later than April 1 of the following calendar year.

(b) OMNI will reimburse Employee for all reasonable business expenses incurred by Employee in the scope of Employee’s employment; provided, however, that Employee must file expense reports with respect to such expenses and otherwise comply with OMNI’s policies as are in effect from time to time and are made known to Employee.

(c) During the term of employment of Employee hereunder, Employee shall be entitled to four (4) weeks paid vacation during each calendar year (prorated for any partial year) and to paid holidays and other paid leave set forth in and in accordance with OMNI’s policies in effect from time to time for other salaried, exempt employees.

Upon termination of Employee’s employment hereunder, Employee shall be deemed to have resigned from all offices, directorships, and committee positions then held with OMNI or any Affiliate.

(d) Non-Renewal of Employment. Either OMNI or Employee may elect not to renew Employee’s employment hereunder at the end of the Initial Period, or at the end of any Additional Period thereafter, by delivery of thirty (30) calendar days prior written notice by the electing party to the other party.

Employee hereby waives any and all rights Employee may have to bring any cause of action or proceeding contesting any such termination or non-renewal; provided, however, that such waiver shall not be deemed to affect Employee’s rights to enforce any other obligations of OMNI unrelated to employment.

(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, Employee shall not be deemed to be in violation of Section 7(a) based solely on the ownership of less than five (5%) percent of any class of securities registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

(c) Employee acknowledges that the limitations set forth in this Section 7 are reasonable and necessary for the protection of OMNI and its Affiliates. In this regard, Employee specifically agrees that the limitations as to period of time and geographic area, as well as all other restrictions on Employee’s activities specified herein, are reasonable and necessary for the protection of OMNI and its Affiliates.

(d) In the event that there shall be any violation of the covenants set forth in this Section 7, then the time limitation thereof shall be automatically extended for a period of time equal to the period of time during which such violation continues; and in the event OMNI is required to seek relief from such violation in any court, board of arbitration or other tribunal, then the covenant shall be extended for a period of time equal to the pendency of such proceedings, including all appeals.

(e) Employee agrees that the remedy at law for any breach by Employee of this Section 7 will be inadequate and that OMNI shall also be entitled to injunctive relief.

8. Non-solicitation. During Employee’s employment with OMNI or any of its Affiliates and thereafter during the Restricted Period, Employee will not whether for the Employee’s own account or the account of any other Person (a) solicit, employ, or otherwise engage as an employee, independent contractor, or otherwise, any Person who is an employee of OMNI or any of its Affiliates or in any manner induce or attempt to induce any employee of OMNI and any such Affiliate to terminate his employment with OMNI or such Affiliate or (b) interfere with OMNI’s or any of its Affiliate’s relationship with any Person, including any Person who at any time during the Employee’s employment with OMNI, was an employee, contractor, supplier, or customer of OMNI or any of its Affiliates.

Employee will promptly disclose to OMNI all Confidential Information, as well as any domestic business opportunity related to OMNI or any of its Affiliates which comes to Employee’s attention during the term of Employee’s employment with OMNI. Employee will not take advantage of or divert any such business opportunity for the benefit of Employee or any other Person (as defined in Exhibit A attached hereto) without the prior written consent of OMNI. Employee agrees that the remedy at law for any breach by Employee of this Section 9 will be inadequate and that OMNI shall also be entitled to injunctive relief.
