incorporated, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State
of Colorado and has all requisite corporate authority to own its properties and
to carry on its business as now being conducted.  The Company's Subsidiaries are
corporations duly organized and validly existing in good standing under the laws
of the jurisdiction in which they are incorporated and have the requisite
corporate power and authority to own their properties and to carry on their
business as now being conducted.  The Company does not have any Subsidiaries and
does not own more than fifty percent (50%) of or control any other business
entity except as set forth in the SEC Documents.  The Company and each of its
Subsidiaries is duly qualified and is in good standing as a foreign corporation
to do business in every jurisdiction in which the nature of the business
conducted or property owned by it makes such qualification necessary, other than
those in which the failure so to qualify would not have a Material Adverse
Effect.

Section 4.2.  Authority.  (i) The Company has the requisite corporate power and
              ---------
corporate authority to enter into and perform its obligations under the
Transaction Documents and to issue the Securities pursuant to their respective
terms; (ii) the execution, issuance and delivery of the Transaction Documents,
the Convertible Debentures and the Warrants by the Company and the consummation
by it of the transactions contemplated hereby have been duly authorized by all
necessary corporate action and no further consent or authorization of the
Company or its Board of Directors or stockholders is required, except insofar as
the Company is required to obtain the approval of its stockholders in accordance
with the corporate governance rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market for issuances of
Common Stock in excess of the Exchange Cap (as that term is defined in the
Convertible Debentures); and (iii) the Transaction Documents have been duly
executed and delivered by the Company and constitute valid and binding
obligations of the Company enforceable against the Company in accordance with
their terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable
bankruptcy, insolvency, or similar laws relating to, or affecting generally the
enforcement of, creditors' rights and remedies or other equitable principles of
general application.  The Company has duly and validly authorized and reserved
for issuance shares of Common Stock sufficient in number for the conversion of
the Convertible Debentures and for the exercise of the Warrants.  The Company
understands and acknowledges the potentially dilutive effect on the Common Stock
of the issuance of the Conversion Shares and the Warrant Shares.  The Company
further acknowledges that its obligation to issue Conversion Shares upon
conversion of the Convertible Debentures and Warrant Shares upon exercise of the
Warrants in accordance with this Agreement, the Convertible Debentures and/or
the Warrants is absolute and unconditional regardless of the dilutive effect
that such issuance may have on the ownership interests of other stockholders of
the Company and notwithstanding the commencement of any case under 11 U.S.C. (S)
101 et seq. (the "Bankruptcy Code").
                  ---------------

Section 4.3.  Capitalization.  The authorized capital stock of the Company
              --------------
consists of 100,000,000 shares of Common Stock, no par value, of which
13,529,792 shares were issued and outstanding as of November 1, 2000 and
10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, of which
<PAGE>

1,500,000 shares of Series A and 4,000 shares of Series B were issued and
outstanding as of November 1, 2000.  Except for (i) outstanding options,
warrants and convertible securities as set forth in the SEC Documents,  and (ii)
as set forth in the Disclosure Schedule, there are no outstanding Capital Share
Equivalents nor any agreements or understandings pursuant to which any Capital
Share Equivalents may become outstanding.  The Company is not a party to any
agreement granting preemptive, registration or anti-dilution rights to any
person with respect to any of its equity or debt securities.  All of the
outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company have been duly and validly
authorized and issued and are fully-paid and nonassessable.

Section 4.4.  Common Stock.  The Company has registered its Common Stock
              -------------
pursuant to Section 12(b) or (g) of the Exchange Act and is in full compliance
with all reporting requirements of the Exchange Act, and the Company is in
compliance with all requirements for the continued listing or quotation of its
Common Stock, and such Common Stock is currently listed or quoted on, a
Principal Market.  As of the date hereof, the Principal Market is the Nasdaq
SmallCap Market, and except as set forth in the SEC Documents, the Company has
not received any notice regarding, and to its knowledge there is no threat of,
the termination or discontinuance of the eligibility of the Common Stock for
such listing.

Section 4.5.  SEC Documents.  The Company has delivered to the Investors true
              -------------
and complete copies of the SEC Documents.  The Company has not provided the
Investors any information that, according to applicable law, rule or regulation,
should have been disclosed publicly prior to the date hereof by the Company, but
which has not been so disclosed. As of their respective dates, the SEC Documents
complied in all material respects with the requirements of the Securities Act or
the Exchange Act, as the case may be, and rules and regulations of the SEC
promulgated thereunder, and the SEC Documents did not contain any untrue
statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be
stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of
the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.  The financial
statements of the Company included in the SEC Documents complied in all material
respects with applicable accounting requirements and the rules and regulations
of the SEC or other applicable rules and regulations with respect thereto at the
time of such inclusion. Such financial statements have been prepared in
accordance with GAAP applied on a consistent basis during the periods involved
(except (i) as may be otherwise indicated in such financial statements or the
notes thereto or (ii) in the case of unaudited interim statements, to the extent
they exclude footnotes or may be condensed or summary statements) and fairly
present in all material respects the financial position of the Company as of the
dates thereof and the results of operations and cash flows for the periods then
ended (subject, in the case of unaudited interim statements, to normal year-end
audit adjustments).  Neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries has any
material indebtedness, obligations or liabilities of any kind (whether accrued,
absolute, contingent or otherwise, and whether due or to become due) that would
have been required to be reflected in, reserved against or otherwise described
in the financial statements or in the notes thereto in accordance with GAAP,
which was not fully reflected in, reserved against or otherwise described in the
financial statements or the notes thereto included in the SEC Documents or was
not incurred in the ordinary course of business consistent with the Company's
past practices since the last date of such financial statements.  No other
written information provided by or on behalf of the Company to the Investors
that is not included in the SEC Documents, including, without limitation,
information referred to in Section
<PAGE>

3.6 of this Agreement, contains any untrue statement of a material fact or omits
to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in
the light of the circumstance under which they are or were made, not misleading.

Section 4.6.  Exemption from Registration; Valid Issuances.  Subject to the
              --------------------------------------------
accuracy of the Investors' representations in Article III, the Company's sale of
the Convertible Debentures and  its issuance of the Warrants under this
Agreement does not, and the Company's issuance of the Conversion Shares on the
Investor's conversion of the Convertible Debentures and the Warrant Shares on
the exercise of the Warrants will not, require registration under the Securities
Act and/or any applicable state securities law.  When issued in accordance with
the terms of the Convertible Debentures or issued and paid for in accordance
with the Warrants, the Conversion Shares and the Warrant Shares, as the case may
be, will be duly and validly issued, fully-paid, and nonassessable.  Neither the
sales of the Securities pursuant to, nor the Company's performance of its
obligations under, the Transaction Documents will (i) result in the creation or
imposition by the Company of any liens, charges, claims or other encumbrances
upon any of the Securities or, except as contemplated herein, any of the assets
of the Company, or (ii) entitle the holders of Outstanding Capital Shares to
preemptive or other rights to subscribe for or acquire the Capital  Shares or
other securities of the Company. None of the Securities will subject the
Investors to personal liability to the Company or its creditors by reason of an
Investor's possession thereof.

Section 4.7.  No General Solicitation or Advertising in Regard to this
              --------------------------------------------------------
Transaction.  Neither the Company nor any of its affiliates nor any person
-----------
acting on its or their behalf (i) has conducted or will conduct any general
solicitation (as that term is used in Rule 502(c) of Regulation D) or general
advertising with respect to the sale of the Convertible Debentures or the
Warrants, or (ii) has made any offers or sales of any security or solicited any
offers to buy any security under any circumstances that would require
registration of the Securities under the Securities Act.

Section 4.8.  No Conflicts.  The Company's execution, delivery and performance
              ------------
of the Transaction Documents, the Company's performance of its obligations under
the Convertible Debentures, and the Company's consummation of the transactions
contemplated hereby and thereby do not and will not (i) result in a violation of
the Company's Articles of Incorporation or By-Laws or (ii) conflict with, or
constitute a default (or an event that with notice or lapse of time or both
would become a default) under, or give to others any rights of termination,
amendment, acceleration or cancellation of, any material agreement, indenture or
instrument, or any "lock-up" or similar provision of any underwriting or similar
agreement to which the Company is a party, or (iii) result in a violation of any
law, rule, regulation, order, judgment or decree (including Federal and state
securities laws and regulations and the rules and regulations of the Principal
Market) except the applicable rules and regulations of the Nasdaq Stock Market
with regard to issuances of Common Stock in excess of the Exchange Cap that may
require the Company to obtain the approval of its stockholders, applicable to
the Company or by which any property or asset of the Company is bound or
affected.  The Company is not otherwise in violation of any term of or in
default under its Articles of Incorporation or By-laws, or any contract,
agreement, mortgage, indebtedness, indenture, instrument, judgment, decree or
order or any statute, rule or regulation applicable to the Company, except for
possible conflicts, defaults, terminations, amendments, accelerations,
cancellations and violations that would not individually or in the aggregate
have a Material Adverse Effect.  The
<PAGE>

Company's business is not being conducted in violation of any law, ordinance or
regulation of any governmental entity, except for possible violations that
either singly or in the aggregate would not result in a Material Adverse Effect.
Except as specifically contemplated by this Agreement and as required by the
Securities Act, the Company is not required to obtain any consent, authorization
or order of, or make any filing or registration with, any court or governmental
agency or any regulatory or self-regulatory organization, in order for it to
execute, deliver or perform any of its obligations under or contemplated by the
Transaction Documents, in each case in accordance with the terms hereof or
thereof. All consents, authorizations, orders, filings and registrations that
the Company is required to obtain pursuant to the preceding sentence have been
obtained or effected on or prior to the date hereof. The Company is not in
violation of the listing requirements of the Principal Market as in effect on
the date hereof and is not aware of any facts which would reasonably lead to
delisting of the Common Stock by the Principal Market in the foreseeable future.

Section 4.9.  No Material Adverse Change.  Since December 31, 1999, no Material
              --------------------------
Adverse Effect has occurred or exists with respect to the Company, except as
disclosed in any SEC Documents filed at least five (5) days prior to the date
hereof and available on EDGAR.  The Company has not taken any steps, and does
not currently expect to take any steps, to seek protection pursuant to the
Bankruptcy Code or any law generally affecting creditors' rights nor does the
Company have any knowledge or reason to believe that its creditors intend to
initiate involuntary bankruptcy proceedings.

Section 4.10. No Undisclosed Events, Liabilities, Developments, or
              ----------------------------------------------------
Circumstances. As of the date hereof, no event, liability, development or
-------------
circumstance has occurred or exists with respect to the Company or its
Subsidiaries or their respective businesses, properties, operations or financial
condition, that would be required to be disclosed by the Company under
applicable securities laws on a registration statement filed with the SEC
relating to an issuance and sale by the Company of its Common Stock and that has
not been publicly announced.

Section 4.11. No Integrated Offering. The Company has not, directly or
              ----------------------
indirectly, made any offers or sales of any security, or solicited any offers to
buy any security, under circumstances that would require registration of any of
the Securities under the Securities Act or cause this offering of Securities to
be integrated with prior offerings of securities by the Company for purposes of
the Securities Act or any applicable stockholder approval provisions, including,
without limitation, under the rules and regulations of the Principal Market; nor
will the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, to the best of its ability, take
any action or steps that would require registration of the Securities under the
Securities Act or cause the offering of the Securities to be integrated with
other offerings.

Section 4.12. Litigation and Other Proceedings.  Except as disclosed in the SEC
              --------------------------------
Documents, there are no lawsuits or proceedings pending or, to the knowledge of
the Company, threatened, against the Company or any Subsidiary or any of their
officers or directors in their capacities as such, nor has the Company received
any written or oral notice of any such action, suit, proceeding or
investigation, which could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse
Effect.  Except as set forth in the SEC Documents, no judgment, order, writ,
injunction or decree or award has been
<PAGE>

issued by or, to the knowledge of the Company, requested of any court,
arbitrator or governmental agency that could result in a Material Adverse
Effect.

Section 4.13.  [Intentionally omitted]

Section 4.14.  Material Non-Public Information.  The Company has not disclosed
               -------------------------------
to the Investors any material non-public information that (i) if disclosed,

have been disclosed publicly by the Company prior to the date hereof, but which
has not been so disclosed.

               ---------
and casualty, general liability, workers' compensation, environmental hazard,
personal injury and other similar types of insurance with financially sound and
reputable insurers that is adequate and consistent with industry standards and
the Company's historical claims experience. Neither the Company nor any
Subsidiary has been refused any insurance coverage sought or applied for, and
neither the Company nor any such Subsidiary has any reason to believe that it
will not be able to renew its existing insurance coverage as and when such
coverage expires or to obtain similar coverage from similar insurers as may be
necessary to continue its business at a cost that would not materially and
adversely affect the condition, financial or otherwise, or the earnings,
business or operations of the Company and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

Section 4.16.  Tax Matters.
               -----------

they are required to file under applicable laws; all such Tax Returns are true
and accurate and have been prepared in compliance with all applicable laws; the
Company has paid all Taxes due and owing by it or any Subsidiary (whether or not
such Taxes are required to be shown on a Tax Return) and has withheld and paid
over to the appropriate taxing authorities all Taxes which it or any Subsidiary
is required to withhold from amounts paid or owing to any employee, stockholder,
creditor or other third parties; and since December 31, 1999, the charges,
accruals and reserves for Taxes with respect to the Company (including any
provisions for deferred income taxes) reflected on the books of the Company are
adequate to cover any Tax liabilities of the Company as if its current tax year
were treated as ending on the date hereof.

          (b)  No claim has been made by a taxing authority in a jurisdiction
where the Company does not file tax returns that the Company or any Subsidiary
is or may be subject to taxation by that jurisdiction. There are no foreign,
Federal, state or local tax audits or administrative or judicial proceedings
pending or being conducted with respect to the Company or any Subsidiary; no
information related to Tax matters has been requested by any foreign, Federal,
state or local taxing authority; and, except as disclosed above, no written
notice indicating an intent to open an audit or other review has been received
by the Company or any subsidiary from any foreign, Federal, state or local
taxing authority. There are no material unresolved questions or claims
concerning the Company's Tax liability. The Company (A) has not executed or
entered into a closing agreement pursuant to (S) 7121 of the Code or any
predecessor provision thereof or any similar provision of
<PAGE>

state, local or foreign law; and (B) has not agreed to, and is not required to,
make any adjustments pursuant to (S) 481 (a) of the Code or any similar

operations of the Company. The Company has not been a United States real

during the applicable period specified in (S) 897(c)(1)(A)(ii) of the Code.

          (c)  The Company has not made an election under (S) 341(f) of the
Code. The Company, to its best knowledge, is not liable for the Taxes of another
person that is not a Subsidiary of the Company under (A) Treas. Reg. (S) 1.1502-
6 (or comparable provisions of state, local or foreign law), (B) as a transferee
or successor, (C) by contract or indemnity or (D) otherwise. The Company is not
a party to any tax sharing agreement. The Company has not made any payments, is
not obligated to make payments and is not a party to an agreement that could
obligate it to make any payments that would not be deductible under (S) 280G of
the Code.

Section 4.17.  Property.  Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries owns
               ---------
any real property.  Except as set forth in the SEC Documents, each of the
Company and its Subsidiaries owns all of the personal property that it owns,
free and clear of all liens, encumbrances and other adverse interests, except
such as do not materially affect the value of such property and do not
materially interfere with the use made and proposed to be made of such property
by the Company and/or its Subsidiary; and to the Company's knowledge, any real
property, mineral or water rights, and buildings that the Company holds under

               ---------------------

conducted.  None of the Company's or any Subsidiary's Intellectual Property
necessary to conduct its business as now conducted or as proposed to be
conducted has expired or terminated, or is expected to expire or terminate
within two years from the date of this Agreement, except for the expiration or
termination of Intellectual Property  that individually or collectively would
not have a  Material Adverse Effect.  To the Company's knowledge, except as
disclosed in the SEC Documents, neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries
is infringing upon or in conflict with any right of any other person with
respect to any Intellectual Property.  Except as disclosed in the SEC Documents,
no adverse claims have been asserted by any person to the ownership or use of
any Intellectual Property, and the Company has no knowledge of any basis for
such claim.

               --------------------------------

financial statements of the Company in accordance with GAAP.

Section 4.20.  Payments and Contributions.  Neither the Company, any Subsidiary,
               --------------------------

Transaction Documents and the transactions contemplated thereby.  The Company
further acknowledges that no Investor is acting as a financial advisor or
fiduciary of the Company (or in any similar capacity) with respect to the
Transaction Documents and the transactions contemplated thereby and any advice
given by any of the Investors or any of their respective representatives or
agents in connection with the Transaction Documents and the transactions
contemplated thereby is merely incidental to such Investor's purchase of the
Securities.  The Company further represents to each Investor that the Company's
decision to enter into the Transaction Documents has been based solely on the

state or foreign regulatory authorities necessary to conduct their respective

permit.

each of the Company and each Investor in this Agreement, the annexes, schedules
and exhibits hereto and in each instrument, agreement and certificate entered

have all rights and remedies for such breach or violation available to it under
the provisions of this Agreement, irrespective of any investigation made by or

<PAGE>

               ---------
Investors, their respective Affiliates and their respective officers, directors,
partners and members (each an "Indemnified Party"), from and against any and all
Damages, and shall reimburse the Indemnified Parties for all reasonable out-of-
pocket expenses (including the reasonable fees and expenses of legal counsel),
in each case promptly as incurred by such Indemnified Party  and to the extent
arising out of or in connection with:

               (i)   any misrepresentation, omission of fact or breach of any of
                     the Company's representations or warranties contained in
                     any of the Transaction Documents, the annexes, schedules or
                     exhibits thereto or any instrument, agreement or
                     certificate entered into or delivered by the Company
                     pursuant hereto or thereto; or

               (ii)  any failure by the Company to perform in any material
                     respect any of its covenants, agreements, undertakings or
                     obligations set forth in any of the Transaction Documents,
                     the annexes, schedules or exhibits thereto or any
                     instrument, agreement or certificate entered into or
                     delivered by the Company pursuant hereto or thereto; or

               (iii) any action instituted against the Investors, or any of
                     them, by any stockholder of the Company who is not an
                     Affiliate of an Investor, with respect to any of the
                     transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents.

Section 7.3.   Notice.  Promptly after receipt by an Indemnified Party seeking
               ------
indemnification pursuant to Section 7.2 of written notice of any investigation,
claim, proceeding or other action in respect of which indemnification is being
sought (each, a "Claim"), the Indemnified Party promptly shall notify the
                 -----
Company of the commencement thereof; but the omission so to notify the Company
shall not relieve it from any liability that it otherwise may have to the
Indemnified Party, except to the extent that the Company is actually prejudiced
by such omission or delay. In connection with any Claim as to which both the
Indemnified Party and the Company are parties, the Company shall be entitled to
assume the defense thereof.  Notwithstanding the assumption of the defense of
any Claim by the Company, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ
separate legal counsel and to participate in the defense of such Claim, and the
Company shall bear the reasonable fees, out-of-pocket costs and expenses of such
separate legal counsel to the Indemnified Party if (and only if): (x) the
Company shall have agreed to pay such fees, out-of-pocket costs and expenses,
(y) the Indemnified Party reasonably shall have concluded that representation of
the Indemnified Party and the Company by the same legal counsel would not be
appropriate due to actual or, as reasonably determined by legal counsel to the
Indemnified Party, potentially differing interests between such parties in the
conduct of the defense of such Claim, or if there may be legal defenses
available to the Indemnified Party that are in addition to or disparate from
those available to the Company, or (z) the Company shall have failed to employ
legal counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party within a
reasonable period of time after notice of the commencement of such Claim.  If
the Indemnified Party employs separate legal counsel in circumstances other than
as described in clauses (x), (y) or (z) above, the fees, costs and expenses of
such legal counsel shall be borne exclusively by the Indemnified Party.  Except
as provided above, the Company shall not, in
<PAGE>

connection with any Claim in the same jurisdiction, be liable for the fees and
expenses of more than one firm of legal counsel for the Indemnified Party
(together with appropriate local counsel). The Company shall not, without the
prior written consent of the Indemnified Party (which consent shall not
unreasonably be withheld), settle or compromise any Claim or consent to the
entry of any judgment that does not include an unconditional release of the
Indemnified Party from all liabilities with respect to such Claim or judgment.

Section 7.4.   Direct Claims.  In the event an Indemnified Party should have a
               -------------
claim for indemnification that does not involve a claim or demand being asserted
by a third party, the Indemnified Party promptly shall deliver notice of such
claim to the Company.  If the Indemnified Party disputes the claim, such dispute
shall be resolved by mutual agreement of the Indemnified Party and the Company
or by binding arbitration conducted in accordance with the procedures and rules
of the American Arbitration Association as set forth in Article X.  Judgment
upon any award rendered by any arbitrators may be entered in any court having
competent jurisdiction thereof.

                                 ARTICLE VIII

        Due Diligence Review; Non-Disclosure of Non-Public Information.

Section 8.1.   Due Diligence Review.  Subject to Section 8.2, the Company shall
               --------------------
make available for inspection and review by the Investors, advisors to and
representatives of the Investors (who may or may not be affiliated with the
Investors and who are reasonably acceptable to the Company), any underwriter
participating in any disposition of the Registrable Securities on behalf of the
Investors pursuant to the Registration Statement, any such registration
statement or amendment or supplement thereto or any blue sky, Nasdaq  or other
filing, all SEC Documents and other filings with the SEC, and all other publicly
available corporate documents and properties of the Company as may be reasonably
necessary for the purpose of such review, and cause the Company's officers,
directors and employees to supply all such publicly available information
reasonably requested by the Investors or any such representative, advisor or
underwriter in connection with such Registration Statement (including, without
limitation, in response to all questions and other inquiries reasonably made or
submitted by any of them), prior to and from time to time after the filing and
effectiveness of the Registration Statement for the sole purpose of enabling the
Investors and such representatives, advisors and underwriters and their
respective accountants and attorneys to conduct initial and ongoing due
diligence with respect to the Company and the accuracy of the Registration
Statement.
<PAGE>

Section 8.2.   Non-Disclosure of Non-Public Information.
               ----------------------------------------

          (a)  The Company shall not disclose material non-public information to
the Investors, advisors to or representatives of the Investors unless prior to
disclosure of such information the Company identifies such information as being
non-public information and provides the Investors, such advisors and
representatives with the opportunity to accept or refuse to accept such non-
public information for review. Other than disclosure of any comment letters
received from the SEC staff with respect to the Registration Statement, the
Company may, as a condition to disclosing any non-public information hereunder,
require the Investors' advisors and representatives to enter into a
confidentiality agreement in form and content reasonably satisfactory to the
Company and the Investors.

          (b)  Nothing herein shall require the Company to disclose material
non-public information to the Investors or their advisors or representatives,
and the Company represents that it does not disseminate material non-public
information to any investors who purchase stock in the Company in a public
offering, to money managers or to securities analysts; provided, however, that
notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Company will, as
hereinabove provided, promptly notify the advisors and representatives of the
Investors and, if any, underwriters, of any event or the existence of any
circumstance (without any obligation to disclose the specific event or
circumstance) of which it becomes aware, constituting material non-public
information (whether or not requested of the Company specifically or generally
during the course of due diligence by such persons or entities), which, if not
disclosed in the prospectus included in the Registration Statement would cause
such prospectus to include a material misstatement or to omit a material fact
required to be stated therein in order to make the statements therein, in light
of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading. Nothing contained
in this Section 8.2 shall be construed to mean that such persons or entities
other than the Investors (without the written consent of the Investors prior to
disclosure of such information as set forth in Section 8.2(a)) may not obtain
non-public information in the course of conducting due diligence in accordance
with the terms of this Agreement and nothing herein shall prevent any such
persons or entities from notifying the Company of their opinion that based on
such due diligence by such persons or entities, that the Registration Statement
contains an untrue statement of a material fact or omits a material fact
required to be stated in the Registration Statement or necessary to make the
statements contained therein, in light of the circumstances in which they were
made, not misleading.

APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAWS AND HAVE BEEN ISSUED IN

RELIANCE UPON AN EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES
ACT AND SUCH OTHER SECURITIES LAWS. NEITHER THIS SECURITY NOR ANY INTEREST OR
PARTICIPATION HEREIN MAY BE SOLD, ASSIGNED, TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED, ENCUMBERED, OR
OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF, EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT
UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR PURSUANT TO A TRANSACTION THAT IS EXEMPT FROM SUCH
REGISTRATION.

Section 9.2.   Transfer Agent Instructions.  Upon the execution and delivery
               ---------------------------
hereof, the Company is issuing to the transfer agent for its Common Stock (and
shall issue to any substitute or replacement transfer agent for its Common Stock
upon the Company's appointment of any such substitute or replacement transfer
agent) Irrevocable Transfer Agent Instructions substantially in the form of
Exhibit F hereto.  Such Irrevocable Transfer Agent Instructions shall be
---------
irrevocable by the Company from and after the date hereof or from and after the
issuance thereof to any such substitute or replacement transfer agent, as the
case may be.

"stop transfer orders," "stock transfer restrictions," or other restrictions
have been or shall be given to the Company's transfer agent with respect thereto

               ---------------------
any way each Investor's obligations to comply with all applicable securities

Section 9.5.   Transfers without Registration.  If an Investor provides the
               ------------------------------
Company with an opinion of counsel, in generally acceptable form, that
registration of a resale by such Investor of any Securities is not required
under the Securities Act, the Company shall permit the transfer and, in the case
of the Conversion Shares, promptly instruct its transfer agent to issue one or
more certificates in such name and in such denominations as specified by such
Investor and, if such opinion provides that such legends can be removed,
without any restrictive legends.

Section 9.6.   Injunctive Relief.  The Company acknowledges that a breach by it
               -----------------
of its obligations hereunder will cause irreparable harm to the Investors by
vitiating the intent and purpose of the transaction contemplated hereby.
Accordingly, the Company acknowledges that the remedy at law for a breach of its
obligations under this Article XI will be inadequate and agrees, in the event of
a breach or threatened breach by the Company of the provisions of this Article
XI, that the Investors shall be entitled, in addition to all other available
remedies, to an injunction restraining any breach and requiring immediate
issuance and transfer, without the necessity of showing economic loss and
without any bond or other security being required.

decisions, the Board of Arbitration shall adopt and follow the laws of the State
of California.  To the extent practical, decisions of the Board of Arbitration
shall be rendered no more than thirty (30) calendar days following commencement

relief is available, and the non-prevailing party to any such injunctive
proceeding shall pay the expenses of the prevailing party, including reasonable
attorneys' fees, in connection with such proceeding.

have all rights and remedies set forth in this Agreement and the Convertible
Debentures and all rights and remedies that such Holders have been granted at
any time under any other agreement or contract and all of the rights that such
Holders have under any law.  Any person or entity having any rights under any

specifically (without posting a bond or other security), to recover damages by
reason of any breach of any provision of this Agreement and to exercise all
other rights granted by law.
