Agreement, the Company hereby issues to Warrant Holder the right and option to
purchase from the Company all or part of an aggregate of 35,250 shares of Common

within the meaning of Section 422A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as
amended (the "Code").
2. Warrant Price and Time of Exercise. The per-share purchase
price at which the shares subject to warrant hereunder may be purchased by
Warrant Holder pursuant to his exercise of this warrant shall be $4.15, which
price equals the closing sale price per share of the Common Stock on August 17,
1999, the date-of issuance of this warrant. The Warrant Holder's right to
exercise this warrant shall be fully vested. The right to exercise the warrant
shall be cumulative to the extent not theretofore exercised. The right to
exercise the warrant shall expire, except as provided in Paragraph 6 below, at
the close of business on the day preceding the second anniversary hereof (the
"Warrant Exercise Period").
3 Method of Exercise and Payment for Shares. This warrant shall
be exercised by written notice delivered to the Company at its principal office,
specifying the number of shares to be acquired upon such exercise, and
accompanied by cash payment of the exercise price.
4. Warrant Exercise Demand. The Company reserves the right to
demand to the Warrant Holder that this warrant be exercised within 30 days from
notice in writing upon the event that the closing price of the Common Stock of
the Company averages above $10.00 per share for a 30 day period during the
Warrant Exercise Period. After 30 days from the notice hereof shall have first
been given, if the Warrant Holder has not exercised this warrant, the warrant
issued hereunder shall automatically terminate and be of no further force and
effect whatsoever, without the necessity for any additional notice or other
action by the Company.
5. Non-transferability. This warrant is not transferable by
Warrant Holder except as otherwise provided in Paragraph 6 below, and during
Warrant Holder's lifetime is exercisable only by him.
6. Exercise After Death. In the event Warrant Holder dies before
the expiration of this warrant, Warrant Holder's estate, or the person or
persons to whom his rights under this warrant shall pass by will or the laws of
descent and distribution, may exercise this warrant, to the extent exercisable
at the date of death, at any time within six mouths following Warrant Holder's
death (but in any event before the expiration of the Warrant Exercise Period).
(a) Adjustments by Stock Split, Stock Dividend, Etc. If
the Company shall at any time increase or decrease the number of its outstanding

other distribution upon such shares payable in Common Stock, or through a Common
Stock split or subdivision of shares, or a consolidation or combination of
shares, or through a reclassification or recapitalization involving the Common
Stock, then the numbers, rights and privileges of the shares of Common Stock
underlying the warrant issued hereunder shall be increased, decreased or changed
in like manner as if they had been issued and outstanding, fully paid and

increased or decreased number or changed kinds of securities or other property
subject to this warrant.
(d) Rights to Subscribe. If the Company shall at any time
grant to the holders of its Common Stock rights to subscribe pro rata for
additional shares thereof or for any other securities of the Company or of any
other corporation, there shall be added to the number of shares underlying this
option the Common Stock or other securities which the Warrant Holder would have
been entitled to subscribe for if immediately prior to such grant the Warrant
Holder had exercised his entire warrant, and the warrant price shall be
increased by the amount which would have been payable by the Warrant Holder for
such Common Stock or other securities.

Section 7 shall be made by the Company, whose determinations with regard thereto
shall be final and binding. No fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued
