      THIS FOUNDER'S SECURITIES PURCHASE AGREEMENT (this "Agreement"), dated as
of March 22, 2007, is entered into by and among SP Acquisition Holdings, Inc., a

shall retain all other rights of holders of Shares, including, without
limitation, the right to vote their Shares (except as described above with
respect to a Business Combination) and the right to receive cash dividends, if
declared. If dividends are declared and payable in Shares, such dividends will
also be subject to the restrictions contained in this Section 1.C.(v). In
addition to the restrictions on transfer set forth in Section 9 hereof, the
Purchaser acknowledges that the Additional Founder's Warrants and the Shares
issuable upon exercise of the Additional Founder's Warrants are subject to the
restrictions on transfer set forth in the Warrant Agreement.

            vi. Registration Rights: In connection with the closing of the
Initial Public Offering, the Company and the Purchaser shall enter into an
agreement (the "Registration Rights Agreement") granting the Purchaser
registration rights with respect to the Securities.

            vii. Forfeiture of Founder's Units, Founder's Shares and Founder's
Warrants: In the event that Steel Partners II, L.P. fails to purchase an
aggregate of 3,000,000 Units at a price of $10.00 per Unit ($30.0 million in the
aggregate) in a private placement that will occur immediately prior to the
consummation of a Business Combination (the "Co-Investment") by the Company
pursuant to the terms of a Co-Investment Agreement to be entered into among the
Company and Steel Partners II, L.P., Purchaser agrees to surrender and forfeit
all of its Founders' Units, Founder's Shares and Initial Founder's Warrants to
the Company; provided that if the Purchaser purchases the Co-Investment Units,
the Founder's Units, Founder's Shares and Founder's Warrants will not be subject
to forfeiture.

Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to the Company that:

      A. Capacity and State Law Compliance. The Purchaser has engaged in the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement within a state in which the offer
and sale of the Securities is permitted under applicable securities laws. The
Purchaser understands and acknowledges that the purchase of Shares upon the

will require the availability of an exemption from registration under federal
and/or state securities laws and that any sale of such Shares shall require
registration or the availability of an exemption from registration under federal
and/or state securities laws.


                                       4


      B. Authorization; No Breach.

            (i) This Agreement constitutes a valid and binding obligation of the
Purchaser, enforceable in accordance with its terms.

            (ii) The execution and delivery by the Purchaser of this Agreement
and the fulfillment of and compliance with the respective terms hereof by the
Purchaser do not and shall not as of the applicable Closing Date conflict with
or result in a breach of the terms, conditions or provisions of the certificate
of formation or limited liability company agreement of the Purchaser or any
other agreement, instrument, order, judgment or decree to which the Purchaser is
subject.

      C. Investment Representations.

            (i) The Purchaser is acquiring the Securities for its own account,
for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection
with, any public sale or distribution thereof.

            (ii) The Purchaser is an "accredited investor" as such term is
defined in Rule 501(a)(3) of Regulation D.

            (iii) The Purchaser understands that the Securities are being
offered and will be sold to it in reliance on specific exemptions from the
registration requirements of the United States federal and state securities laws
and that the Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of, and the
Purchaser's compliance with, the representations and warranties of the Purchaser
set forth herein in order to determine the availability of such exemptions and
the eligibility of the Purchaser to acquire such Securities.

            (iv) The Purchaser did not decide to enter into this Agreement as a
result of any general solicitation or general advertising within the meaning of
Rule 502(c) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").

            (v) The Purchaser has been furnished with all materials relating to
the business, finances and operations of the Company and materials relating to
the offer and sale of the Securities which have been requested by the Purchaser.
The Purchaser has been afforded the opportunity to ask questions of the
executive officers and directors of the Company. The Purchaser understands that
its investment in the Securities involves a high degree of risk. The Purchaser
has sought such accounting, legal and tax advice as the Purchaser has considered
necessary to make an informed investment decision with respect to the
Purchaser's acquisition of the Securities.

            (vi) The Purchaser understands that no United States federal or
state agency or any other government or governmental agency has passed on or
made any recommendation or endorsement of the Securities or the fairness or
suitability of the investment in the Securities by the Purchaser nor have such
authorities passed upon or endorsed the merits of the offering of the
Securities.


                                       5


            (vii) The Purchaser understands that: (a) the Securities have not
been and are not being registered under the Securities Act or any state
securities laws, and may not be offered for sale, sold, assigned or transferred
unless (A) subsequently registered thereunder or (B) sold in reliance on an
exemption therefrom; and (b) except as specifically set forth in the
Registration Rights Agreement, neither the Company nor any other person is under
any obligation to register the Securities under the Securities Act or any state
securities laws or to comply with the terms and conditions of any exemption
thereunder. In this regard, the Purchaser understands that the Securities and
Exchange Commission has taken the position that promoters or affiliates of a
blank check company and their transferees, both before and after a Business
Combination, are deemed to be "underwriters" under the Securities Act when
reselling the securities of a blank check company. Based on that position, Rule
144 adopted pursuant to the Securities Act would not be available for resale
transactions of the Securities despite technical compliance with the
requirements of such Rule, and the Securities can be resold only through a
registered offering or in reliance upon another exemption from the registration
requirements of the Securities Act. The Purchaser is able to bear the economic
risk of its investment in the Securities for an indefinite period of time.

            (viii) The Purchaser has such knowledge and expertise in financial
and business matters, knows of the high degree of risk associated with
investments generally and particularly investments in the securities of
companies in the development stage such as the Company, is capable of evaluating
the merits and risks of an investment in the Securities and is able to bear the
economic risk of an investment in the Securities in the amount contemplated
hereunder. The Purchaser has adequate means of providing for its current
financial needs and contingencies and will have no current or anticipated future
needs for liquidity which would be jeopardized by the investment in the
Securities. The Purchaser can afford a complete loss of its investment in the
Securities.

      D. Waiver of Right to Amounts in the Trust Account and Indemnification.

            (i) The Purchaser hereby waives any and all right, title, interest
or claim of any kind in or to any distribution of the trust account established
by the Company for the deposit of proceeds from the Initial Public Offering and
the sale of the Additional Founder's Warrants, as a result of any liquidation of
the trust account, with respect to the Founder's Shares ("Claim") and hereby
waives any Claim it may have in the future as a result of, or arising out of,
any contracts or agreements with the Company and will not seek recourse against
the trust account for any reason whatsoever except for any amounts to which it
may be entitled upon liquidation of the Company in respect of the Purchaser's
ownership of Shares other than the Founder's Shares.

            (ii) The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the stockholders of
the Company, including those who purchase the units in the Initial Public
Offering, are and shall be third-party beneficiaries of the foregoing provisions
of Section 3.D. of this Agreement.

            (iii) The Purchaser agrees that to the extent any waiver of rights
under this Section 3.D. is ineffective as a matter of law, the Purchaser has
offered such waiver for the benefit of the Company as an equitable right that
shall survive any statutory disqualification or bar that applies to a legal
right. The Purchaser acknowledges the receipt and sufficiency of consideration
received from the Company hereunder in this regard.
