When executed and delivered, each of this Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of such Purchaser, enforceable against such Purchaser in accordance with its terms, except as such may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other laws affecting creditors' rights generally and by general equitable principles.

Any transfer or purported transfer of the Shares in violation of this Section 6.1 shall be void. The Company shall not register any transfer of the Shares in violation of this Section 6.1. The Company may, and may instruct any transfer agent for the Company, to place such stop transfer orders as may be required on the transfer books of the Company in order to ensure compliance with the provisions of this Section 6.1. 6.2. Legends. (a) To the extent applicable, each certificate or other document evidencing the Shares and the Warrant Shares shall be endorsed with the legend set forth below, and each Purchaser covenants that, except to the extent such restrictions are waived by the Company, it shall not transfer the shares represented by any such certificate without complying with the restrictions on transfer described in this Agreement and the legends endorsed on such certificate: "THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER SAID ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, REGISTRATION UNDER SAID ACT." 16 (b) The legend set forth in Section 6.2(a) shall be removed from the certificates evidencing the Shares and the Warrant Shares, (i) following any sale of such Shares or Warrant Shares pursuant to Rule 144 or any effective registration statement, or (ii) if such Shares or Warrant Shares are eligible for sale under Rule 144(k) (and the holder of such Shares or Warrant Shares has submitted a written request for removal of the legend indicating that the holder has complied with the applicable provisions of Rule 144 or such judicial interpretation or pronouncement), or (iii) if such legend is not required under applicable requirements of the Securities Act (including judicial interpretations and pronouncements issued by the Staff of the Commission) (and the holder of such Shares or Warrant Shares has submitted a written request for removal of the legend indicating that the holder has complied with the applicable provisions of Rule 144). The Company shall cause its counsel to issue a legal opinion to the Company's transfer agent promptly upon the occurrence of any of the events in clauses (i), (ii) or (iii) above to effect the removal of the legend on certificates evidencing the Shares or the Warrant Shares and shall also cause its counsel to issue a "blanket" legal opinion to the Company's transfer agent promptly after the Effective Date (provided that there is an effective registration statement covering the resale of the Shares or the Warrant Shares, as the case may be), if required by the Company's transfer agent, to allow sales without restriction pursuant to an effective registration statement. The Company agrees that at such time as such legend is no longer required under this Section 6.2(b), it will, no later than three (3) business days following the delivery by a Purchaser to the Company or the Company's transfer agent of a certificate representing the Shares or Warrant Shares issued with a restrictive legend, deliver or cause to be delivered to such Purchaser a certificate representing such Shares or Warrant Shares that is free from all restrictive and other legends; provided that in the case of removal of the legend for reasons set forth in clause (ii) above, the holder of such Shares or Warrant Shares has submitted a written request for removal of the legend indicating that the holder has complied with the applicable provisions of Rule 144. The Company may not make any notation on its records or give instructions to any transfer agent of the Company that enlarge the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Section. 6.3 Publicity. Except to the extent required by applicable laws, rules, regulations or stock exchange requirements, neither (i) the Company, the Subsidiaries or any of their Affiliates nor (ii) any Purchaser or any of its Affiliates shall, without the written consent of the other, make any public announcement or issue any press release with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. In no event will either (i) the Company, the Subsidiaries or any of their Affiliates or (ii) any Purchaser or any of its Affiliates make any public announcement or issue any press release with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement without consulting with the other party, to the extent feasible, as to the content of such public announcement or press release. 6.4 Material, Nonpublic Information. Except as required by law, the Company and its directors, officers, employees and agents shall not provide any Purchaser with any material non-public information regarding the Company or any of the Subsidiaries at any time after the Closing, except such information as may be required to be disclosed to certain Board members, who are affiliated with 17 certain Purchasers (other than Tudor and its Affiliates), in their capacity as directors of the Company. In the event of a breach of the foregoing covenant following the Effective Date, or in the event that Company is legally required to make certain disclosures to any Purchaser (and does so) following the Effective Date, then in addition to any other remedy provided for herein, in the Transaction Documents or in equity or at law, each Purchaser to whom information has been disclosed (whether as a result of breach or as required by law) may request, in writing, that the Company promptly (but in no event more than five (5) business days after the date of such writing) publicly disclose, by press release, SEC filing, or otherwise, an appropriate summary of the information that, in such Purchaser's reasonable judgment, constitutes the then material non-public information. After such five (5) business-day period, the Purchaser(s) who was or were in receipt of such material non-public information shall be automatically authorized to make all of the information, or any portion thereof, available to the public generally, without incurring any liability to the Company for such disclosure. 6.5 Filing of Information. The Company shall use best efforts to, and shall, promptly after the date hereof and in any event on or prior to July 15, 2004, make current in all respects all filings and reports required by applicable securities laws, including the preparation and filing of all periodic reports under the Exchange Act, the filing of audited financial statements for fiscal year 2003, and the filing of any statements required by or pursuant to the Securities Act. The Company covenants to timely file (or obtain extensions in respect thereof and file within the applicable grace period) all reports (other than the periodic reports with respect to fiscal year 2003 and the first quarter of 2004) required to be filed by the Company pursuant to all applicable securities laws, including the Exchange Act. At any time if the Company is not required to file reports pursuant to such laws, it will prepare and furnish to the Purchasers and make publicly available in accordance with paragraph (c) of Rule 144 such information as is required for the Purchasers to sell the Shares and the Warrant Shares under Rule 144. The Company further covenants that it will take such further action as any holder of Shares or Warrant Shares may reasonably request to satisfy the provisions of Rule 144 applicable to the issuer of securities relating to transactions for the sale of securities pursuant to Rule 144. 6.6 Additional Issuance. The Company shall not issue any capital stock or other securities in connection with the raising of additional financing or capital until all of the Shares have been registered for resale pursuant to an effective registration statement and otherwise in accordance with the terms set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement; provided; however, that the foregoing shall not prohibit the Company from issuing shares of Common Stock or securities convertible into or exercisable for Common Stock: (i) upon conversion of the Warrants or other securities issuable upon conversion of securities outstanding on the date hereof, (ii) to employees, consultants, officers or directors of the Company pursuant to stock option, stock purchase or stock bonus plans or agreements or other stock incentive plans or arrangements approved by the Board, which are in existence as of the date hereof, (iii) pursuant to the acquisition of another business entity or business segment of any such entity by the Company by merger, purchase of substantially all the assets or other reorganization or corporate partnering agreement if such issuance is approved by the Board, (iv) in connection with any stock split, stock dividend or recapitalization of the Company, (v) with respect to warrants to purchase Common Stock issued to Tejas and as described in Section 2.4 hereof, and (vi) in connection with lease lines, bank loans, corporate partnering or other similar transactions, provided such issuances described in this clause (vi) are not primarily for the purpose of equity financing and are approved by the Board. 18 6.7 Use of Proceeds. The Company covenants and agrees that the proceeds from the sale of the Shares shall be used by the Company for repayment or prepayment of indebtedness of the Company, working capital and general corporate purposes or any other purpose approved by the Board, including, without limitation, growth initiatives, capital expenditures and potential acquisitions; under no circumstances shall any portion of the proceeds be applied to: (i) the payment of dividends or other distributions on any capital stock or other securities of the Company; (ii) the purchase of debt or equity securities of any Person for cash, excluding debt securities of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, except in connection with investment of excess cash in high quality (A1/P1 or better) money market instruments having maturities of one year or less; (iii) any expenditure not directly related to the business of the Company; or (iv) the call, repurchase or redemption of any Company equity or equity-equivalent securities. 6.8 Integration. The Company shall not sell, offer for sale or solicit offers to buy or otherwise negotiate in respect of any security (as defined in Section 2 of the Securities Act) that would be integrated with the offer or sale of the Shares in a manner that would require the registration under the Securities Act of the sale of the Shares or the issuance of the Warrants or the Warrant Shares to the Purchasers. 6.9 Pre-Emptive Right. Each Purchaser shall have the right to purchase a pro rata share of New Securities (as defined in this Section 6.9) that the Company may, from time to time, propose to sell and issue. Each Purchaser's pro rata share, for purposes of this right, is the ratio of the number of shares of Fully Diluted Common Stock owned by such holder immediately prior to the issuance of New Securities to the total number of shares of Fully Diluted Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the issuance of New Securities. Each Purchaser shall also have the right of over-allotment to purchase additional New Securities set forth in paragraph (b) of this Section 6.9. This pre-emptive right shall be subject to the following provisions: (a) "New Securities" shall mean any capital stock (including Common Stock) of the Company whether now authorized or not, and any rights, options or warrants to purchase such capital stock, and securities of any type whatsoever that are, or may become, convertible into or exchangeable for capital stock; provided that the term "New Securities" does not include securities issued: (i) upon conversion of the Warrants or other securities issuable upon conversion of securities outstanding on the date hereof, (ii) to employees, consultants, officers or directors of the Company pursuant to stock option, stock purchase or stock bonus plans or agreements or other stock incentive plans or arrangements approved by the Board, which are in existence as of the date hereof, (iii) pursuant to the acquisition of another business entity or business segment of any such entity by the Company by merger, purchase of substantially all the assets or other reorganization or corporate partnering agreement if such issuance is approved by the Board, (iv) in connection with any stock split, stock dividend or recapitalization of the Company, (v) in connection with lease lines, bank loans, corporate partnering or other similar transactions, provided such issuances described in this clause (v) are not primarily for the purpose of equity financing and are approved by the Board, and (vi) to directors of the Company as compensation for their service as directors pursuant to a restricted stock plan to be implemented and approved by the stockholders of the Company; provided that such issuance of restricted stock shall not exceed 100,000 shares per year. 19 (b) In the event the Company proposes to undertake an issuance of New Securities, it shall give each Purchaser certified written notice of its intention, describing the type of New Securities, their price and the general terms upon which the Company proposes to issue the same. Each Purchaser shall have thirty (30) days after any such notice is mailed or delivered to agree to purchase all or any portion of such Purchaser's pro rata share of such New Securities for the price and upon the terms specified in the notice by giving written notice to the Company and stating therein the quantity of New Securities to be purchased. Each Purchaser shall have the right of over-allotment such that if any Purchaser fails to exercise its right under this Section 6.9 to purchase its full pro rata share of New Securities, the other Purchasers may purchase the portion of such Purchaser's remaining portion on a pro rata share within ten (10) days from the date such non-purchasing Purchaser fails to exercise its right hereunder to purchase its full pro rata share of New Securities. (c) In the event the Purchasers fail to exercise the pre-emptive right within such thirty (30) day period and after the expiration of the ten (10) day period for the exercise of the over-allotment provisions of this Section 6.9, the Company shall have ninety (90) days thereafter to sell the New Securities respecting which the Purchasers' pre-emptive right set forth in this Section 6.9 was not exercised, at a price and upon terms no more favorable to the purchasers thereof or to the Company than specified in the Company's notice to the Purchasers pursuant to Section 6.9(b) above. In the event the Company has not sold the New Securities respecting which the Purchasers' preemptive right set forth in the Section 6.9 was not exercised within such ninety (90) day period, the Company shall not thereafter issue or sell any New Securities, without first again offering such securities to the Purchasers in the manner provided in Section 6.9(b) above. 6.10 Reservation of Common Stock for Issuance; Listing of Shares. The Company agrees to reserve from its duly authorized capital stock the total number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon execution of this Agreement and upon the exercise in full of the Warrants. The Company agrees that at any time, if and when its shares of Common Stock are listed on NASDAQ, that it will use reasonable efforts to promptly list and qualify the Shares and the Warrant Shares for trading on NASDAQ. 7. Indemnification. 7.1 By the Company. The Company agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless each Purchaser and its Affiliates and their respective officers, directors, agents, employees, subsidiaries, partners, members and controlling persons (collectively, the "Purchaser Indemnitees") to the fullest extent permitted by law from and against any and all claims, losses, liabilities, damages, deficiencies, judgments, assessments, fines, settlements, costs or expenses (including interest, penalties and reasonable fees, disbursements and other charges of counsel) (collectively, "Losses") based upon, arising out of or otherwise in respect of any breach by the Company of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement of the Company contained in this Agreement or in the Transaction Documents, or for any Losses claimed by Tejas or any other broker or placement agent. 20 7.2 Claims All claims for indemnification by a Purchaser Indemnitee pursuant to this Section 7 shall be made as follows: (a) If a Purchaser Indemnitee has incurred or suffered Losses for which it is entitled to indemnification under this Section 7, then such Purchaser Indemnitee shall give prompt written notice of such claim (a "Claim Notice") to the Company. Each Claim Notice shall state the amount of claimed Losses (the "Claimed Amount"), if known, and the basis for such claim. (b) Within 30 days after delivery of a Claim Notice, the Company (the "Indemnifying Party") shall provide to each Purchaser Indemnitee (the "Indemnified Party"), a written response (the "Response Notice") in which the Indemnifying Party shall: (i) agree that all of the Claimed Amount is owed to the Indemnified Party, (ii) agree that part, but not all, of the Claimed Amount (the "Agreed Amount") is owed to the Indemnified Party, or (iii) contest that any of the Claimed Amount is owed to the Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party may contest the payment of all or a portion of the Claimed Amount only based upon a good faith belief that all or such portion of the Claimed Amount does not constitute Losses for which the Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification under this Section 7. If no Response Notice is delivered by the Indemnifying Party within such 30-day period, then the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have agreed that all of the Claimed Amount is owed to the Indemnified Party. (c) If the Indemnifying Party in the Response Notice agrees (or is deemed to have agreed) that all of the Claimed Amount is owed to the Indemnified Party, then the Indemnifying Party shall owe to the Indemnified Party an amount equal to the Claimed Amount to be paid in the manner set forth in this Section 7. If the Indemnifying Party in the Response Notice agrees that part, but not all, of the Claimed Amount is owed to the Indemnified Party, then the Indemnifying Party shall owe to the Indemnified Party an amount equal to the agreed amount set forth in such Response Notice to be paid in the manner set forth in this Section 7. (d) No delay on the part of the Indemnified Party in notifying the Indemnifying Party shall relieve the Indemnifying Party of any liability or obligation hereunder except to the extent of any actual prejudice caused by or arising out of such delay. 7.3. Payment of Claims. An Indemnifying Party shall make payment of any portion of any Claimed Amount that such Indemnifying Party has agreed in a Response Notice that it owes to an Indemnified Party, or that such Indemnifying Party is deemed to have agreed it owes to such Indemnifying Party, said payment to be made within thirty (30) days after such Response Notice is delivered by such Indemnifying Party or should have been delivered by such Indemnifying Party, as the case may be. 7.4. Limitations. (a) Time for Claims. No Indemnifying Party will be liable for any Losses hereunder arising out of a breach of representation or warranty unless a written claim for indemnification is given by the Indemnified Party to the Indemnifying Party on or prior to the third anniversary of the date on which the registration statement covering the resale of the Shares initially became effective. 21 (b) Maximum Amount. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, no Indemnifying Party will be liable for any Losses hereunder in excess of $29,995,000. 7.5 Applicability; Exclusivity. Notwithstanding any term to the contrary in this Section 7, the indemnification and contribution provisions of the Registration Rights Agreement shall govern any claim made with respect to registration statements filed pursuant thereto or sales made thereunder. The parties hereby acknowledge and agree that in addition to remedies of the parties hereto in respect of any and all claims relating to any breach or purported breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement that is contained in this Agreement pursuant to the indemnification provisions of this Section 7, all parties shall always retain the right to pursue and obtain injunctive relief in addition to any other rights or remedies hereunder. 8. Miscellaneous Provisions. 8.1 Rights Cumulative. Each and all of the various rights, powers and remedies of the parties shall be considered to be cumulative with and in addition to any other rights, powers and remedies which such parties may have at law or in equity in the event of the breach of any of the terms of this Agreement. The exercise or partial exercise of any right, power or remedy shall neither constitute the exclusive election thereof nor the waiver of any other right, power or remedy available to such party. 8.2 Pronouns. All pronouns or any variation thereof shall be deemed to refer to the masculine, feminine or neuter, singular or plural, as the identity of the person, persons, entity or entities may require. 8.3 Notices.
