        The above-referenced debtors and debtors in possession ("Debtors") have filed their First Amended Chapter 11 Joint Plan of Reorganization (as may be modified, the "Plan"). The Court has approved the Debtors' Disclosure Statement in support of the Plan (as modified, the "Disclosure Statement"), as containing adequate information to enable creditors and equity security holders to make an informed judgment in determining whether to vote to accept or reject the Plan.

        The Court has authorized transmittal of the Disclosure Statement, the Plan and other information in the manner directed by the Court. Copies of the Plan and Disclosure Statement are available for inspection during normal business hours in the Clerk's Office, United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California, San Fernando Valley Division, 21041 Burbank Blvd., Woodland Hills, CA 91367 ("Bankruptcy Court"), or available upon request from the Balloting Agent (listed below).

Any ballots received after the Voting Deadline or InfoNet/Pacific Voting Deadline, as applicable, will not be counted. Claimants must return their ballots to the "Balloting Agent" at the following address and in accordance with the instructions that accompany such ballots: Pachulski, Stang, Ziehl, Young & Jones P.C., Attn: SNTL Balloting (Carla Clark), 10100 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite 1100, Los Angeles, CA 90067.

        The Court will hold a hearing to consider confirmation of the Plan under section 1129 of the Bankruptcy Code ("Confirmation Hearing") on June 18, 2002 at 10:00 a.m. at the Bankruptcy Court, the Honorable Geraldine Mund presiding, Courtroom "303".

Godshall, 10100 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite 1100, Los Angeles, CA 90067; (ii) Counsel to the Creditors' Committee: Latham & Watkins, Attn: Michael Lurey, 633 West Fifth Street, Suite 4000, Los Angeles, CA 90071; (iii) Counsel to the Bank Group: White & Case, Attn: Andrew DeNatale, 1155 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10036; (iv) Office of the United States Trustee, Attn: MaryAnne Wilsbacher, 21051 Warner Center Lane, Suite 115, Woodland Hills, CA 91367; provided, however, creditors of only the Debtors InfoNet Management Systems, Inc. and/or Pacific Insurance Brokerage, Inc. must file and serve their Plan objections, if any, in accordance with the foregoing provisions by no later than June 14, 2002 at 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time ("InfoNet/Pacific Objection Deadline").
