Subject to the foregoing clauses (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv), the Company shall file a registration statement covering the Registrable Securities so requested to be registered as soon as practicable after receipt of the request or requests of the Initiating Holders. 2.2 ADDITIONAL SHARES TO BE INCLUDED. The registration statement filed pursuant to the request of the Initiating Holders may, subject to the provisions of Sections 2.4 and 3.3 below, include (a) other securities of the Company (the "Additional Shares") which are held by (i) officers or directors of the Company who, by virtue of agreements with the Company, are entitled to include their securities in any such registration or (ii) other persons who, by virtue of agreements with the Company, including the Existing Rights Agreements, are entitled to include their securities in any such registration (the "Other Stockholders"), and (b) securities of the Company being sold for the account of the Company. 2.3 UNDERWRITING. (a) If the Initiating Holders intend to distribute the Registrable Securities covered by their request by means of an underwriting, they shall so advise the Company as a part of their request made pursuant to this Section 2 and the Company shall include such information in the written notice to other Holders referred to in Section 2.1 above. The right of any Holder to registration pursuant to this Section 2 shall be conditioned upon such Holder's participation in such underwriting and the inclusion of such Holder's Registrable Securities in the underwriting to the extent provided herein and subject to the limitations provided herein. A Holder may elect to include in such underwriting all or a part of the Registrable Securities he holds. 4 (b) The Company shall (together with all Holders, officers, directors and Other Stockholders proposing to distribute their securities through such underwriting) negotiate and enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the representative of the underwriter or underwriters selected for such underwriting by a majority in interest of the Initiating Holders, which underwriter(s) shall be reasonably acceptable to the Company; provided that no Holder shall be required to make any representations or warranties to or agreements (other than a lock-up agreement pursuant to Section 11) with the Company or the underwriters, other than representations, warranties or agreements regarding the Holder, its Registrable Securities and its intended method of distribution and any other representation required by law. 2.4 LIMITATIONS ON SHARES TO BE INCLUDED. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 2, if the representative of the underwriters of a firm commitment underwriting advises the Initiating Holders in writing that marketing factors require a limitation on the number of shares to be underwritten, the number of shares of securities that are entitled to be included in the registration and underwriting shall be allocated as follows: first, among the Other Stockholders that offer securities being sold pursuant to the Existing Rights Agreements, in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective amounts of Additional Shares which they had requested to be included in such registration pursuant to the Existing Rights Agreements; second, among the Holders, in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective amounts of Registrable Securities which they had requested to be included in such registration; third, to the Company for securities being sold for its own account; and thereafter, the number of shares that may be included in the registration statement and underwriting shall be allocated among all officers or directors or remaining Other Stockholders, in each case in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective amounts of Additional Shares which they had requested to be included in such registration at the time of filing the registration statement. If the Company or any Holder, officer, director or Other Stockholder who has requested inclusion in such registration as provided above disapproves of the terms of any such underwriting, such Person may elect to withdraw such Person's Registrable Securities or Additional Shares therefrom by written notice to the Company and the underwriter and the Initiating Holders. Any Registrable Securities or other securities excluded shall also be withdrawn from such registration. No Registrable Securities or Additional Shares excluded from such registration by reason of such underwriters' marketing limitation shall be included in such registration. To facilitate the allocation of shares in accordance with this Section 2.4, the Company or underwriter or underwriters selected as provided above may round the number of Registrable Securities of any Holder which may be included in such registration to the nearest 100 shares. 2.5 ADDITIONAL DEMAND REGISTRATION. If with respect to the last registration permitted to be exercised by the Holders of Registrable Securities under Section 2.1, the Holders are unable to register all of their Registrable Securities because of the operation of Section 2.4 hereof, such Holders shall be entitled to require the Company to effect additional registrations to afford the Holders an opportunity to register all such Registrable Securities. Such additional registrations shall again be subject to the provisions of this Section 2. 5 3. COMPANY REGISTRATION. 3.1 At any time after April 13, 2008, if the Company shall determine to register under the Securities Act any of its equity securities or securities convertible into equity securities either for its own account or the account of a security holder or holders exercising any demand registration rights, other than a registration relating solely to employee benefit plans, or a registration relating solely to a Commission Rule 145 transaction, or a registration on Form S-4 or S-8, or the Form SB-2 filed on or about June 29, 2004, (or any successor forms thereto), the Company will: (a) promptly give to each Holder written notice thereof (which shall include a list of the jurisdictions in which the Company intends to attempt to qualify such securities under the applicable blue sky or other state securities laws); and (b) include in such registration (and, subject to Section 2.1(b)(i), any related qualification under blue sky laws or other compliance), and in any underwriting involved therein, all the Registrable Securities specified in a written request or request, made by any Holder within thirty (30) days after receipt of the written notice from the Company described in clause (a) above, except as set forth in Section 3.3 below. Such written request may specify all or a part of a Holder's Registrable Securities. 3.2 UNDERWRITING. If the registration of which the Company gives notice is for a registered public offering involving an underwriting, the Company shall so advise the Holders as a part of the written notice given pursuant to Section 3.1(a). The right of any Holder to registration pursuant to this Section 3 shall be conditioned upon such Holder's participation in such underwriting and the inclusion of such Holder's Registrable Securities in the underwriting to the extent provided herein. All Holders proposing to distribute their securities through such underwriting shall (together with the Company and any officers, directors or Other Stockholders distributing their securities through such underwriting) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the representative of the underwriter or underwriters selected by the Company; provided that no Holder shall be required to make any representations or warranties to or agreements (other than a lock-up agreement pursuant to Section 11) with the Company or the underwriters, other than representations, warranties or agreements regarding the Holder, its Registrable Securities and its intended method of distribution and any other representation required by law. . 3.3 LIMITATIONS ON SHARES TO BE INCLUDED. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 3, if the representative of the underwriters of a firm commitment underwriting advises the Company in writing that marketing factors require a limitation or elimination on the number of shares to be underwritten, the representative may (subject to the allocation priority set forth below) limit the number of or eliminate the Registrable Securities to be included in the registration and underwriting. The Company shall so advise all Holders of securities requesting registration, and the number of shares of securities that are entitled to be included in the registration and underwriting shall be allocated as follows: first, if such underwritten offering 6 shall have been initiated by the Company for the sale of securities for its own account, to the Company for securities being sold for its own account; second, among the Other Stockholders that offer securities being sold pursuant to the Existing Rights Agreements, in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective amounts of Additional Shares which they had requested to be included in such registration pursuant to the Existing Rights Agreements; third, among the Holders, in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective amounts of Registrable Securities which they had requested to be included in such registration; fourth, if such underwritten offering shall not have been initiated by the Company, to the Company for securities being sold for its own account; and thereafter, the number of shares that may be included in the registration statement and underwriting shall be allocated among all officers or directors or remaining Other Stockholders, in each case in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective amounts of Additional Shares which they had requested to be included in such registration at the time of filing the registration statement. If any Holder of Registrable Securities or any officer, director or Other Stockholder disapproves of the terms of any such underwriting, he may elect to withdraw therefrom by written notice to the Company and the underwriter. Any Registrable Securities or other securities excluded or withdrawn from such underwriting shall also be withdrawn from such registration. The Company shall have the right to terminate or withdraw any registration initiated by it under this Section 3 prior to the effectiveness of such registration whether or not any Holder has elected to include securities in such registration. 4. EXPENSES OF REGISTRATION. All Registration Expenses incurred in connection with any registration, qualification or compliance pursuant to Sections 2, 3 or 4 of this Agreement shall be borne by the Company, except that Selling Expenses shall be borne pro rata by each Holder in accordance with the number of shares sold. 5.

provided, however, that the Company will keep such registration effective for longer than 180 days if the costs and expenses associated with such extended registration are borne by the selling Holders; (b) Prepare and file with the Commission such amendments and supplements to such registration statement and the prospectus used in connection with such registration statement as may be necessary to comply with the provisions of the Securities Act with respect to the disposition of all securities covered by such registration statement; 7 (c) Furnish such number of prospectuses and other documents incident thereto, including any amendment of or supplement to the prospectus, as a Holder from time to time may reasonably request; (d) Notify each seller of Registrable Securities covered by such registration statement at any time when a prospectus relating thereto is required to be delivered under the Securities Act of the happening of any event as a result of which the prospectus included in such registration statement, as then in effect, includes an untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading or incomplete in the light of the circumstances then existing, and at the request of any such seller, prepare and furnish to such seller a reasonable number of copies of a supplement to or an amendment of such prospectus as may be necessary so that, as thereafter delivered to the purchasers of such shares, such prospectus shall not include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading or incomplete in the light of the circumstances then existing; (e) List all such Registrable Securities registered in such registration on each securities exchange or automated quotation system on which the Common Stock of the Company is then listed; (f) Provide a transfer agent and registrar for all Registrable Securities and a CUSIP number for all such Registrable Securities, in each case not later than the effective date of such registration; (g) Make available for inspection by any seller of Registrable Securities, any underwriter participating in any disposition pursuant to such registration statement, and any attorney or accountant retained by any such seller or underwriter, all financial and other records, pertinent corporate documents and properties of the Company, and cause the Company's officers and directors to supply all information reasonably requested by any such seller, underwriter, attorney or accountant in connection with such registration statement;

provided that no Holder shall be required to make any representations or warranties to or agreements (other than a lock-up agreement pursuant to Section 11) with the Company or the underwriters, other than representations, warranties or agreements regarding the Holder, its Registrable Securities and its intended method of distribution and any other representation required by law. 5.3 In connection with the preparation and filing of each registration statement under this Agreement, the Company will give the Holders on whose behalf such Registrable Securities are to be registered and their underwriters, if any, and their respective counsel and accountants, the opportunity to review such registration statement, each prospectus included therein or filed with the Commission, and each amendment thereof or supplement thereto, and will give each such Holder such access to the Company's books and records and such opportunities to discuss the business of the Company with its officers, its counsel and the independent public accountants who have certified the Company's financial statements, as shall be necessary, in the opinion of such Holders or such underwriters or their respective counsel, in order to conduct a reasonable and diligent investigation within the meaning of the Securities Act. 6.

The Company will indemnify each Holder, each of its officers, directors and partners, and each person controlling such Holder, with respect to which registration, qualification or compliance has been effected pursuant to this Agreement, and each underwriter, if any, and each Person who controls any underwriter, against all claims, losses, damages and liabilities (or actions, proceedings or settlements in respect thereof) arising out of or based on any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a 9 material fact contained in any prospectus, offering circular or other document (including any related registration statement, notification or the like) incident to any such registration, qualification or compliance, or based on any omission (or alleged omission) to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, or any violation by the Company of the Securities Act or any rule or regulation thereunder applicable to the Company and relating to action or inaction required of the Company in connection with any such registration, qualification or compliance, and will reimburse each such Holder, each of its officers, directors and partners, and each Person controlling such Holder, each such underwriter and each Person who controls any such underwriter, for any legal and any other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with investigating and defending or settling any such claim, loss, damage, liability or action, provided that the Company will not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such claim, loss, damage, liability or expense arises out of or is based on any untrue statement or omission made in reliance upon and based upon written information furnished to the Company by such Holder or underwriter and stated to be specifically for use therein. 6.2 INDEMNIFICATION BY THE HOLDERS. Each Holder will, if Registrable Securities held by him are included in the securities as to which such registration, qualification or compliance is being effected, indemnify the Company, each of its directors and officers and each underwriter, if any, of the Company's securities covered by such a registration statement, each person who controls the Company (other than such Holder) or such underwriter within the meaning of the Securities Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, each other such Holder and each of their officers, directors and partners, and each Person controlling such Holder or other stockholder, against all claims, losses, damages, expenses and liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arising out of or based on any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a material fact contained in any such registration statement, prospectus, offering circular or other document, or any omission (or alleged omission) to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, and will reimburse the Company, each of its directors and officers, each underwriter or control Person, each other Holder and each of their officers, directors and partners and each Person controlling such Holder or other stockholder for any legal or any other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with investigating or defending any such claim, loss, damage, liability or action, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) or omission (or alleged omission) is made in such registration statement, prospectus, offering circular or other document in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by such Holder and stated to be specifically for use therein. 6.3 NOTICES OF CLAIMS, PROCEDURES, ETC.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, such Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ its own counsel in any such litigation, proceeding or other action if (i) the employment of such counsel has been authorized by the Indemnifying Party, in its sole and absolute discretion, or (ii) the named parties in any such claims (including any impleaded parties) include any such Indemnified Party and the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party shall have been advised in writing (in suitable detail) by counsel to the Indemnified Party either (A) that there may be one or more legal defenses available to such Indemnified Party which are different from or additional to those available to the Indemnifying Party, or (B) that there is a conflict of interest by virtue of the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Parties having common counsel, in any of which events, the legal fees and expenses of a single counsel for all Indemnified Parties with respect to each such claim, defense thereof, or counterclaims thereto shall be borne by Indemnifying Party. No Indemnifying Party, in the defense of any such claim or litigation, shall, except with the consent of each Indemnified Party, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnified Party of a release from all liability in respect to such claim or litigation. Each Indemnified Party shall cooperate to the extent reasonably required and furnish such information regarding itself or the claim in question as an Indemnifying Party may reasonably request in writing and as shall be reasonably required in connection with defense of such claim and litigation resulting therefrom. 7.

Each Holder of Registrable Securities shall furnish to the Company such information regarding such Holder and the distribution proposed by such Holder as the Company may reasonably request in writing and as shall be reasonably required in connection with any registration, qualification or compliance referred to in this Agreement; provided that no Holder shall be required to make any representations or warranties to or agreements (other than a lock-up agreement pursuant to Section 11) with the Company or the underwriters, other than representations, warranties or agreements regarding the Holder, its Registrable Securities and its intended method of distribution and any other representation required by law. 8. TRANSFER OR ASSIGNMENT OF REGISTRATION RIGHTS. The rights to cause the Company to register securities granted by the Company under this Agreement may be transferred or assigned by a Holder to a transferee or assignee of any Registrable Securities; provided that the Company is given written notice at or prior to the time of said transfer or assignment, stating the name and address of said transferee or assignee and identifying the securities with respect to which such registration rights are being transferred or assigned; and provided further that the transferee or assignee of such rights assumes in writing the obligations of a Holder under this Agreement to the Company and other Holders in effect at the time of transfer under all effective agreements. 9. EXCHANGE ACT COMPLIANCE. So long as the Company remains subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act, the Company shall file the reports required to be 11 filed by it under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations adopted by the Commission thereunder, and will take all actions reasonably necessary to enable holders of Registrable Securities to sell such securities without registration under the Securities Act within the limitation of the provisions of (a) Rule 144 under the Securities Act, as such Rule may be amended from time to time, (b) Rule 144A under the Securities Act, as such Rule may be amended from time to time, if applicable or (c) any similar rules or regulations hereunder adopted by the Commission. Upon the request of any Holder of Registrable Securities, the Company will deliver to such Holder a written statement as to whether it has complied with such requirements. After any sale of Registrable Securities pursuant to the provisions of Rule 144 or 144A, the Company will, to the extent allowed by law, cause any restrictive legends to be removed and any transfer restrictions to be rescinded with respect to such Registrable Securities. In order to permit a Holder to sell the same, if it so desires, pursuant to Rule 144A promulgated by the Commission (or any successor to such rule), the Company will comply with all rules and regulations of the Commission applicable in connection with use of Rule 144A (or any successor thereto). Prospective transferees of Registrable Securities that are Qualified Institutional Buyers (as defined in Rule 144A) that would be purchasing such Registrable Securities in reliance upon Rule 144A may request from the Company information regarding the business, operations and assets of the Company. Within five (5) business days of any such request, the Company shall deliver to any such prospective transferee copies of annual audited and quarterly unaudited financial statements of the Company and such other information as may be required to be supplied by the Company for it to comply with Rule 144A. 10. NO CONFLICT OF RIGHTS. The Company will not hereafter enter into any agreement with respect to its securities which is inconsistent with the rights granted to the Holders in this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company will not hereafter enter into any agreement with respect to its securities which grants, or modifies any existing agreement with respect to its securities to grant, to the holder of its securities equal or higher priority to the rights granted to the Holders under Sections 2 and 3 of this Agreement. 11. LOCKUP AGREEMENT. In consideration for the Company agreeing to its obligations hereunder, the Holders of Registrable Securities agree in connection with any registration of the Company's securities (which includes Registrable Securities of at least $75,000 in value) pursuant to Section 3 hereof that, upon the request of the Company not to sell, make any short sale of, loan, grant any option for the purchase of or otherwise dispose of any Registrable Securities (other than those shares included in such registration) without the prior written consent of the Company for such period of time (not to exceed 180 days) from the effective date of such registration as the Company may specify. 12.
