WHEREAS, quepasa desires to acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities of Vayala from the Vayala Security Holders in exchange for newly issued unregistered securities of quepasa;
 
WHEREAS, Vayala desires to assist quepasa in acquiring all of the issued and outstanding common stock of Vayala pursuant to the terms of this Agreement; and
 
WHEREAS, all of the Vayala Security Holders, by execution of Exhibit 1.2 hereto, agree to exchange all 4,768,962 common shares of Vayala for 10,000,000 common shares of quepasa at the initial rate of 2.0968923 quepasa shares for each Vayala share and subject to the additional earn-out provisions set forth in Section 1.2.
 
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises, covenants and representations contained herein, THE PARTIES HERETO AGREE AS FOLLOWS:

1.1    Issuance of Securities.    Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, quepasa agrees to issue and exchange 10,000,000 fully paid and non-assessable unregistered shares of quepasa’s $.001 par value common stock for all 4,768,962 issued and outstanding shares of the $.0001 par value common stock of Vayala (the “Vayala Shares”) held by the Vayala Security Holders. The quepasa shares will be issued directly to the Vayala Security Holders at the rate of one share of quepasa for each 2.0968923 shares of Vayala on the Closing Date, pursuant to the schedule set forth in Exhibit 1.1.
 
1.2    Earn-Out Provisions.    If, within 12 months from the Closing Date, Vayala meets certain performance milestones as described below, quepasa shall issue (i) up to an additional 22,000,000 shares of its common stock and (ii) stock options (the “Stock Options”) to purchase up to an additional 65,000,000 quepasa shares at $.00001 per share exercisable within 30 days from the date such Stock Options are issued. The quepasa shares and quepasa Stock Options are collectively referred to as the “quepasa Securities.” All quepasa Securities will be issued on a pro rata basis to the Vayala Security Holders based upon their ownership of Vayala Shares as set forth in Exhibit 1.1. quepasa warrants that it will promptly seek its shareholders’ approval to authorize any shares of common stock required to be issued under this Agreement to the extent such shares are otherwise not available for issuance. The Vayala milestones and quepasa Securities to be issued in accordance with those milestones are separate transactions, such that if


any one obligation to issue quepasa shares for a particular milestone is determined not to be enforceable for any reason, all other issuances under milestones will remain in force. The milestones are as follows:
 
 
(a)
 
In the event (i) Vayala’s search and e-mail products have been brought fully online, (ii) Vayala’s search database has grown to at least 200 million documents, (iii) Vayala’s e-mail database has grown to at least 25,000 users, and (iv) Vayala’s search and e-mail services have been independently tested and found to offer the performance benchmarks described in Exhibit 1.2, then quepasa shall issue an additional 10,000,000 shares of its common stock and 15,000,000 Stock Options to the Vayala Security Holders.
 
 
(b)
 
In the event Vayala generates (i) $25,000 of revenue from its e-mail services and (ii) $250,000 of revenue from resales of its search technology, then quepasa shall issued an additional 12,000,000 shares of its common stock and 50,000,000 Stock Options to the Vayala Security Holders.
 
 
(c)
 
If quepasa’s last reported common stock sales price on the Electronic Bulletin Board is less than $.03 per share on the Closing Date (or on the issuance dates for shares issuable under the milestones), then the number of such quepasa shares to be issued shall be increased by 25%. However, shares issued in prior issuances will not be increased.
 
1.3    Exemption from Registration.    The parties hereto intend that the quepasa Securities shall be exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. In furtherance thereof, the Vayala Security Holders will execute and deliver to quepasa on the Closing Date a copy of the Subscription Agreement set forth in Exhibit 1.3 hereto.

EXHIBIT 1.3
 
SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT
 
In connection with my exchange of $.0001 par value common stock of Vayala Corporation (“Vayala”), for the $.001 par value common stock (the “quepasa Securities”) of quepasa.com, inc. (“quepasa”), I acknowledge the matters set forth below and promise that the statements made herein are true. I understand that quepasa is relying on my truthfulness in issuing its securities to me.
 
I hereby represent and warrant to quepasa that I have the full power and authority to execute, deliver and perform this Subscription Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby. This Subscription Agreement is a legal, valid and binding obligation of mine, enforceable against me in accordance with its terms. I own the securities in Vayala that I am exchanging for securities of quepasa free and clear of all pledges, liens, encumbrances, security interests, equities, claims, options, preemptive rights, rights of first refusal, or any other limitation on my ability to vote such securities or to transfer such securities to quepasa. I have full right, title and interest in and to the Vayala securities that I am exchanging.
 
I understand that the quepasa Securities are being issued to me in a private transaction in exchange for my securities in Vayala and in reliance upon the exemption provided in section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”) for non-public offerings and pursuant to the Agreement Concerning the Exchange of Securities between quepasa and Vayala (“Agreement”). I understand that the quepasa Securities are “restricted” under applicable securities laws and may not be sold by me except in a registered offering (which may not ever occur) or in a private transaction like this one. I know this is an illiquid investment and that therefore I may be required to hold the quepasa Securities for an indefinite period of time, but under no circumstances less than one year from the date of its issuance.
 
I am acquiring the quepasa Securities solely for my own account, for long-term investment purposes only and not with a view to sale or other distribution. I agree not to dispose of any quepasa Securities unless and until counsel for quepasa shall have determined that the intended disposition is permissible and does not violate the Act, any applicable state securities laws or rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.
 
All information, financial and otherwise, or documentation pertaining to all aspects of my acquisition of the quepasa Securities and the activities and financial information of quepasa has been made available to me and my representatives, if any, and I have had ample opportunity to meet with and ask questions of senior officers of quepasa, and I have received satisfactory answers to any questions I asked.
 
In acquiring the quepasa Securities, I have reviewed the Agreement and have made such independent investigations of quepasa as I deemed appropriate. I am an experienced investor, have made speculative investments in the past and am capable of analyzing the merits of an investment in the quepasa Securities.
 


 
I understand that the quepasa Securities are highly speculative, involves a great degree of risk and should only be acquired by individuals who can afford to lose their entire investment. Nevertheless, I consider this a suitable investment for me because I have adequate financial resources and income to maintain my current standard of living even after my acquisition of the quepasa Securities. I understand that the market price of quepasa’s publicly traded securities can fluctuate dramatically from time to time, and that although I could lose my entire investment, I am acquiring the quepasa Securities because I believe the potential rewards are commensurate with the risk. Even if the quepasa Securities became worthless, I could still maintain my standard of living without significant hardship on me or my family.
 
I understand that quepasa and Vayala have substantially the same officers and directors. Accordingly, the Agreement was not negotiated at “arm’s length” and may be more favorable to one company that it is to the other. However, I understand that the parties have agreed that they shall have received a fairness opinion on or before the Closing Date of the Agreement. I am satisfied with the terms of the transaction and by signing this Subscription Agreement, I confirm that I accept and agree to abide by the terms and conditions of the Agreement as if I had executed the Agreement itself.
 
Dated as of this          day of                                 , 2002.
