The Company reserves the right to refuse the transfer of such securities until all terms and conditions have been fulfilled with respect to such transfer as set forth in such agreements and such Plan.

        4.    Stockholder's Representations, Warranties and Agreements.    

        (a)   The Stockholder acknowledges that he has been advised that (i) a restrictive legend in the form heretofore set forth shall be placed on the certificates representing the Stock and (ii) a notation shall be made in the appropriate records of the Company indicating that the Stock is subject to restrictions on Transfer and appropriate stop transfer restrictions will be issued with respect to the Stock.

        (b)   The Stockholder agrees that if any shares of the Stock are to be Transferred in accordance with Rule 144 or otherwise, the Stockholder shall promptly notify the Company of such intended disposition and shall deliver to the Company at or prior to the time of such disposition such documentation as the Company may reasonably request in connection with such Transfer and, in the case of a disposition pursuant to Rule 144, shall deliver to the Company an executed copy of any notice on Form 144 required to be filed with the SEC.

        (c)   The Stockholder represents and warrants that (i) he has received and reviewed the available information relating to the Stock, and (ii) he has been given the opportunity to obtain any additional information or documents and to ask questions and receive answers about such information, the Company and the business and prospects of the Company which he deems necessary to evaluate the merits and risks related to his investment in the Stock and to verify the information he has received.

        (d)   The Stockholder further represents and warrants that (i) his financial condition is such that he can afford to bear the economic risk of holding the Stock for an indefinite period of time and has adequate means for providing for his current needs and personal contingencies, (ii) he can afford to suffer a complete loss of his investment in the Stock, (iii) he understands all of the risk factors related to his investment in the Stock and (iv) his knowledge and experience in financial and business matters are such that he is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of his investment in the Stock.



        (e)   To the extent not inconsistent with applicable law, the Stockholder agrees not to effect any public sale or distribution (including sales pursuant to Rule 144) of equity securities of the Company or any securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for such securities, during the seven days prior to and the period of 180 days (or such longer period as requested by the lead underwriter for the Public Offering in question, if such longer period also applies to Shares held by AFJ) after the effective date of any registration under the 1933 Act for a Public Offering.

        (f)    The Stockholder agrees that he will vote to effect a stock split (forward or reverse, as the case may be) with respect to any Shares in connection with any Public Offering, if the managing underwriter shall advise the Company in writing (or, in connection with an offering that is not underwritten, if an investment banking firm of nationally recognized standing shall advise the Company in writing) that in their or its opinion such a stock split would facilitate or increase the likelihood of success of the offering. The Stockholder agrees that any number of Shares referred to in this Agreement shall be equitably adjusted to reflect any stock split, stock dividend, stock combination, recapitalization or similar transaction.

        5.    Right of First Refusal.    

        (a)   Except for Transfers pursuant to Sections 6 or 7 or Permitted Transfers, at any time prior to an Initial Public Offering, if any Holder (the "Offeree") receives a bona fide offer (a "Transfer Offer") to purchase any or all shares of his Stock (the "Transfer Securities") from any person (the "Offeror") which the Offeree wishes to accept, the Offeree shall cause the Transfer Offer to be reduced to writing and shall provide a written notice (the "Transfer Notice") of such Transfer Offer to the Company. The Transfer Notice shall contain an irrevocable offer to sell the Transfer Securities to the Company (in the manner set forth below) at a price equal to the price contained in, and upon the same terms and conditions as the terms and conditions contained in, the Transfer Offer and shall be accompanied by a true and complete copy of the Transfer Offer (which shall identify the Offeror, the Transfer Securities, the price contained in the Transfer Offer and other material terms and conditions of the Transfer Offer).

        (b)   Within 15 days after receiving the Transfer Notice, the Company shall inform the Offeree in writing whether or not it intends to exercise its right to purchase all (but not less than all) of the Transfer Securities covered by the Transfer Offer either (i) for the same consideration and on the same terms and conditions as the Transfer Offer or (ii) if the Transfer Offer includes any consideration other than cash, then, at the sole option of the Company, at the equivalent all-cash price, determined in good faith by a majority of the members of the Board. If the Company elects to accept such offer, on or prior to the 30th day after the date of receipt by the Company of the Transfer Notice, the Company will deliver to the Offeree a written agreement in the form included in the Transfer Offer, if the Transfer Offer included such written agreement (except that such agreement shall omit all representations and warranties relating to the Offeree except for its title to the Transfer Securities and its authority to Transfer such Transfer Securities), and shall pay the relevant cash consideration by delivering a certified bank check or checks (or, if the Offeree so elects at least three business days prior to the closing date in writing specifying the Offeree's bank account and other wire Transfer instructions, by wire Transfer) and shall deliver the relevant non-cash consideration to the Offeree, in each case against delivery of certificates or other instruments representing the Transfer Securities so purchased, appropriately endorsed by the Offeree. If at the end of such 15-day period, the Company has not delivered written notice of exercise of its right to purchase the Transfer Securities pursuant to this Section 5, or if at the end of such 30-day period, the Company has not tendered the purchase price for such securities in the manner set forth above, the Offeree shall be free for a period of 90 days from the end of such 15- or 30-day period, as applicable, to Transfer not less than all of the Transfer Securities to the Offeror on the terms and conditions set forth in the Transfer Notice (including the execution and delivery of any written agreement in the form included in the Transfer Offer). At or prior to the time of such Transfer, the Offeror shall execute and deliver to the Company a Joinder in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A. Promptly after such sale, the Offeree shall notify the Company of the consummation thereof and shall furnish such evidence of the completion and time of completion of such sale and of the terms thereof as may reasonably be requested by the Company. If for any



reason the Offeree does not sell the Transfer Securities to the Offeror on the terms and conditions set forth in the Transfer Notice, or if any Offeree wishes to sell the Transfer Securities on terms other than those set forth in the Transfer Notice, the provisions of this Section 5 shall again be applicable to the Transfer Securities.

        (c)   The closing of the purchase of the Transfer Securities by the Company upon exercise of its right of first refusal shall be no later than the last day of the 30-day period after the receipt of the Transfer Notice.

        (d)   This Section 5 shall terminate immediately after the consummation of a Change of Control or an Initial Public Offering.

        6.    Tag-Along Rights.    If any one or more stockholders of the Company, individually or in a Group (individually and collectively, as applicable, the "Selling Holder") engage in a Change in Control involving a sale of Shares (other than any sale to an Affiliate of such Selling Holder), the Stockholder shall have the right (a "Tag-Along Right") to participate in such transaction on the same material terms and conditions as the Selling Holder by including in such transaction the same percentage of the Stockholder's Shares (determined on a Fully Diluted Basis) as the percentage of Shares being sold by the Selling Holder in such Change of Control (determined on a Fully Diluted Basis), as follows:

            (a)   The Company shall deliver to the Stockholder at least 14 days prior to consummating such Change of Control a written notice (a "Tag-Along Notice") of such transaction; provided, however, that (i) if 14 days' prior notice is not practicable, the Tag-Along Notice shall be given as many days prior to such transaction as is practicable; and (ii) the Stockholder shall keep any information regarding the proposed transaction strictly confidential.

            (b)   If the Stockholder desires to participate in such transaction, the Stockholder must deliver to the Selling Holder, within 7 days of receiving a Tag-Along Rights Notice, written notice (a "Participation Notice") of the Stockholder's desire to participate in such transaction. If the Stockholder does not deliver to the Selling Holder a Participation Notice with respect to such Tag-Along Right within the applicable time period, the Stockholder shall be treated as having waived his right to participate in such transaction. The Participation Notice shall constitute an irrevocable commitment by the Stockholder to participate in the transaction on the terms contained in the Tag-Along Rights Notice

            (c)   The Stockholder shall cooperate in such transaction by providing the Selling Holder all materials (including executed purchase and sale agreements and stock Transfer documentation), as the Selling Holder may reasonably request in order to consummate the transaction. The Stockholder shall, if provided an opportunity to do so, consent to and vote in favor of the Change of Control.

            (d)   Each of the Selling Holders and any other party to any such transaction shall have the right, in its sole discretion, at all times prior to consummation of such transaction to abandon, rescind, annul, withdraw or otherwise terminate such transaction whereupon all Tag-Along Rights in respect of such transaction pursuant to this Section 6 shall become null and void, and neither the Selling Holder nor any other such party shall have any liability or obligation to the Stockholder with respect thereto. Nothing herein shall be construed to obligate the Selling Holder to accept any offer or terms for, or to consummate, any Change in Control or other transaction.

            (e)   This Section 6 shall terminate immediately after the consummation of a Change of Control or an Initial Public Offering.

        7.    Drag-Along Rights.    In the event that any one or more stockholders of the Company, individually or in a Group (individually and collectively, as applicable, the "Selling Holder") engage in a Change in Control (other than any sale to an Affiliate of such Selling Holder), the Selling Holder shall have the right (a "Drag-Along Right") to require each other Holder ("Other Holder") to participate in such transaction on the same material terms as the Selling Holder by including in such transaction the same percentage of the Shares held by such Other Holder (determined on a Fully


Diluted Basis) as the percentage of Shares being sold by the Selling Holder in such Change of Control (determined on a Fully Diluted Basis), as follows:

            (a)   The Selling Holder shall deliver to the Company a written notice (a "Drag-Along Notice") of the Selling Holder's exercise of its Drag-Along Right in such transaction at least 14 days prior to consummating the Change of Control transaction, and the Company shall promptly deliver such Drag-Along Notice to such Other Holder; provided, however, that (i) if 14 days' prior notice is not practicable, the Drag-Along Notice shall be given as many days prior to such transaction as is practicable; and (ii) such Other Holder shall keep any information regarding the proposed transaction strictly confidential.

            (b)   In the case of Options held by such Other Holder, the purchase price for any Options in connection with the exercise of a Drag-Along Right shall be equal to the purchase price stated in the Drag-Along Notice attributable to the number of Shares issuable upon the exercise of such Option (without regard to whether or not such Options would otherwise be exercisable) less the exercise price thereof.

            (c)   Each Holder shall cooperate in the Change of Control transaction by providing the Selling Holder all materials (including executed purchase and sale agreements and stock Transfer documentation), as the Selling Holder may reasonably request. Each Holder shall, if provided an opportunity to do so, consent to and vote in favor of the Change of Control.

            (d)   The Selling Holder shall have the right, in its sole discretion, at all times prior to consummation of the transaction to abandon, rescind, annul, withdraw or otherwise terminate such transaction, and the Selling Holder shall not have any liability or obligation to the Stockholder with respect thereto. Nothing herein shall be construed to obligate the Selling Holder to accept any offer or terms for, or to consummate, any Change in Control or other transaction.

            (e)   The Stockholder agrees that any holder(s) of Company capital stock engaging in a Change in Control shall have the right to enforce the Drag-Along Right under this Section 7 against the Stockholder with respect to any Change in Control as if such holder(s) were a party hereto.

            (f)    This Section 7 shall terminate immediately after the consummation of a Change of Control.

        8.    Transfer After an IPO.    For a period of thirty months after the Initial Public Offering, no Stock may be Transferred if, immediately following such Transfer, the percentage of the Stockholder's Stock sold by the Stockholder in or after the IPO (including in the Transfer in question) would exceed the percentage of AFJ's Shares sold by AFJ in or after the IPO. For purposes of the preceding sentence: (i) the Stockholder shall be treated as including his Permitted Transferees; (ii) the percentage sold by a person shall be measured against the number of Shares held by such person as of immediately prior to the IPO (for example, if the Stockholder owned 100 shares immediately prior to the IPO, and then sold no shares in the IPO and 5 shares after the IPO, the percentage of shares sold by the Stockholder in or after the IPO would be 5%); (iii) an equitable adjustment shall be made for any forward or reverse stock split, stock dividend, stock combination, recapitalization or similar transaction involving the Company's capital stock; and (iv) the percentages in each case shall be calculated on a Fully Diluted Basis. AFJ shall have the right to enforce this Section 8 against the Stockholder as if AFJ were a party hereto.

        9.    After-Acquired Shares.    

        (a)   For greater certainty, if any shares of common stock or other equity securities are issued or issuable from time to time with respect to any Shares of Stock, such securities shall constitute Stock that is subject to this Agreement.

        (b)   For greater certainty, this Agreement shall continue to apply to shares of Stock after such shares have been Transferred, except that this Agreement shall not apply to any Shares sold pursuant to Sections 6 or 7 or in a public sale in accordance with Section 8 after an Initial Public Offering.



        10.    Employment by the Company.    Nothing contained in this Agreement or in any other agreement entered into by the Company and the Stockholder contemporaneously with the execution of this Agreement (i) obligates the Company or any subsidiary of the Company to employ the Stockholder in any capacity whatsoever or (ii) prohibits or restricts the Company (or any such subsidiary) from terminating the employment of the Stockholder at any time or for any reason whatsoever, with or without cause, and the Stockholder hereby acknowledges and agrees that neither the Company nor any other person has made any representations or promises whatsoever to the Stockholder concerning the Stockholder's employment or continued employment by the Company or any subsidiary of the Company.

        11.    Termination.    This Agreement shall terminate upon the earliest to occur of:

            (a)   immediately after the consummation of a Change of Control;

            (b)   thirty months after the consummation of an Initial Public Offering;

            (c)   upon written notice given by the Company to the Holders at any time on or after an Initial Public Offering; or

            (d)   upon mutual agreement of the Company and Holders holding a majority of the then outstanding shares of Stock subject to the provisions of this Agreement.

        Nothing in this Section 11 shall prevent Sections 5, 6 or 7 from terminating in accordance with their respective terms at any earlier time.

        12.    Counterparts.    This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, all of which shall be considered one and the same agreement, and shall become effective when such counterparts have been signed by each of the parties and delivered to the other parties. Copies of executed counterparts transmitted by telecopy, telefax or other electronic transmission service shall be considered original executed counterparts for purposes of this Section.

        13.    Governing Law.    This Agreement shall be governed by the substantive law of the State of Illinois, without application of any conflict of laws principle that would require the application of the law of any other jurisdiction.

        14.    Entire Agreement.    This Agreement, the Restricted Stock Agreement and the Plan contain the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and there are no agreements, understandings, representations or warranties between the parties other than those set forth or referred to herein. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein (including in Sections 6(e) and 7(f)), this Agreement is not intended to confer upon any person not a party hereto any rights or remedies hereunder.

        15.    Notices.    All notices, requests, demands or other communications required by or otherwise with respect to this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be treated as having been duly given to any party when delivered by hand, by messenger, or by a nationally-recognized overnight delivery company, when sent by telecopy and confirmed by return telecopy, or three days after being deposited in first-class mail, postage prepaid and return receipt requested, in each case to the applicable addresses set forth below (or such other addresses as a party may designate by written notice to each other party).

            (b)   Section 8 is deleted and the following is inserted in its stead:

        "Transfer After an IPO. During the period starting on the IPO and ending on the first anniversary of the IPO, any Transfer of Stock by the Stockholder is prohibited to the extent that, immediately following such Transfer, the percentage of the Stockholder's Stock Transferred by the Stockholder in or after the IPO (including in such Transfer) would exceed two times the AFJ Percentage (determined as of immediately after such Transfer). During the period starting on the day after the first anniversary of the IPO and ending on the second anniversary of the IPO, any Transfer of Stock by the Stockholder is prohibited to the extent that, immediately following such Transfer, the percentage of the Stockholder's Stock Transferred by the Stockholder in or after the IPO (including in such Transfer) would exceed three times the AFJ Percentage (determined as of immediately after such Transfer). During the period starting on the day after the second anniversary of the IPO and ending 30 months after the IPO, any Transfer of Stock by the Stockholder is prohibited to the extent that, immediately following such Transfer, the percentage of the Stockholder's Stock Transferred by the Stockholder in or after the IPO (including in such Transfer) would exceed four times the AFJ Percentage (determined as of immediately after such Transfer). "AFJ Percentage", as of any specified time, means the percentage of AFJ's Shares sold by AFJ in or after the IPO up to and including such specified time. For purposes of this Section 8: (i) the Stockholder shall be treated as including his Permitted Transferees; (ii) an equitable adjustment shall be made for any forward or reverse stock split, stock dividend, stock combination, recapitalization or similar transaction involving the Company's capital stock; and (iii) the percentage sold by a person (including the AFJ Percentage, in the case of AFJ) shall be calculated by dividing (A) the total number of Shares sold by such person in or after the IPO (determined on a Fully Diluted Basis) by (B) the number of Shares held by such person as of immediately prior to the IPO (determined on a Fully Diluted Basis). For example, if the Stockholder owned (immediately prior to the IPO) 50 shares outright and unexpired options for 50 shares (regardless of whether such options were vested), sold no shares in the IPO, and


        sold 5 shares after the IPO, then, as of the time of such sale of 5 shares, the percentage of shares sold by the Stockholder in or after the IPO would be 5%. AFJ shall have the right to enforce this Section 8 against the Stockholder as if AFJ were a party hereto."

        2.     The Company and Stockholder hereby ratify and confirm the Stockholder's Agreement, as so amended, in all respects.


        IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this First Amendment to Management Stockholder's Agreement as of the date first above written.
