         On June 30, 1997, Wheels Sports Group, Inc. (the "Company"), Diamond
Sports Group, Inc. ("Diamond"), Wheels Sports Group Acquisition II, Inc., a
wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the "Subsidiary") and the four
shareholders of Diamond (the "Shareholders") entered into an Agreement and Plan
of Reorganization (the "Agreement") whereby, in a reverse triangular
reorganization (the "Merger"), all of the outstanding shares of Diamond were
converted into 485,000 restricted shares of the Company's Common Stock and
issued to the Shareholders.

         For a period of two years commencing June 30, 1997, the Shareholders
may "piggy-back" the registration of their shares onto any registration
statement which the Company files to register any of its securities under the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act"), in connection with a public
offering for cash proceeds payable in whole or in part to the Company.  The
Shareholders also have been granted the right to request the Company file a
registration statement under the Act covering the shares of the Company's
Common Stock issued to them in connection with the Merger.  Such "demand"
registration right commences July 16, 1998 and ends December 31, 1998.

         On effectiveness of the Merger, the Board of Directors of the Company
expanded the number of members of the Board of Directors of the Company to seven
and appointed Randy E. Duncan to the Board of Directors.  The Board of Directors
of Diamond consists of Messrs. Duncan, Howard L. Correll, Jr. and W. Conrad
Powell.  Three of the Shareholders, including Mr. Duncan, have executive
employment agreements with Diamond, all of which extend through June 29, 2000.

         Diamond Sports Group specializes in sales and distribution of
motorsport-related apparel, souvenirs and hospitality management.

                           DIAMOND SPORTS GROUP, INC.

<PAGE>   2
                      AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF REORGANIZATION

         THIS AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF REORGANIZATION is dated as of June 30,
1997, by and among DIAMOND SPORTS GROUP, INC., a North Carolina corporation
("DSG"); WHEELS SPORTS GROUP, INC., a North Carolina corporation ("WSG");
WHEELS SPORTS GROUP ACQUISITION II, INC., a North Carolina corporation
("Subsidiary Company"), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of WSG; and RANDY E.
DUNCAN, H. EDWARD HICKMAN, ROBERT J. DIACHENKO and A. THAD LEWALLEN, III
(hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Shareholder").

         The Shareholders own all of the outstanding shares of common stock,
with no par value per share of DSG ("DSG Common Stock"), constituting all of
the outstanding capital stock of DSG.

         DSG and WSG have engaged in extensive discussions regarding the
combination of their respective businesses through a reverse triangular merger
(the "Merger") of DSG through Subsidiary Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of
WSG formed specifically to consummate the Merger.

         For federal income tax purposes, it is intended that the Merger shall
qualify as a reorganization within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the
Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code").  Specifically, it is
intended that the Merger qualify as a reverse triangular reorganization under
Sections 368(a)(1)(A) and 368(a)(2)(E) of the Code.

         NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereto hereby approve and adopt this
Agreement as a Plan of Reorganization and do mutually covenant and agree as
follows:

I.  MERGER OF DSG AND SURVIVING COMPANY

                 1.1  MERGER.  On the Effective Date (as hereinafter defined),
Subsidiary Company shall be merged with and into DSG, which shall be the
surviving corporation ("Surviving Company"), pursuant to the Agreement and Plan
of Merger attached as Exhibit A hereto (the "Plan of Merger").

                 1.2  EFFECT OF THE MERGER.  Upon the Merger becoming
effective, the separate existence of Subsidiary Company shall cease, and
Surviving Company shall succeed to and possess all the properties, rights,
privileges, powers, franchises and immunities, of a public as well as of a
private nature, and be subject to all the debts, liabilities, obligations,
restrictions, disabilities and duties of Subsidiary Company, all without
further act or deed, as provided in the Business Corporation Act of the state
of North Carolina.

                 1.3  NAME OF SURVIVING COMPANY.  On the Effective Date, the
name of the Surviving Company shall be "Diamond Sports Group, Inc.".
<PAGE>   3
                 1.4  ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION AND BYLAWS.  The Articles of
Incorporation and the Bylaws of Surviving Company as in effect on the Effective
Date shall be, from and after the Effective Date, the Articles of Incorporation
and Bylaws of Surviving Company until they are amended.

                 1.5  DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS.  Upon the Merger becoming
effective, the directors and officers of Surviving Company shall be as
identified on Schedule 1.5 hereto, and each shall hold office until his
successor is elected or qualified or until his earlier resignation or removal.
If on the Effective Date a vacancy exists on the Board of Directors of
Surviving Company or in any of the offices of Surviving Company, as the same
are specified on Schedule 1.5 such vacancies may thereafter be filled in the
manner provided by the Bylaws of Surviving Company.

                 1.6  SERVICE OF PROCESS.  Surviving Company hereby agrees that
from and after the Effective Date it may be served with process in the State of
North Carolina in any proceeding for the enforcement of any obligation of DSG
and Subsidiary Company and in any proceeding for the enforcement of the rights
of any dissenting DSG shareholder against Surviving Company.  Surviving Company
hereby irrevocably appoints the North Carolina Secretary of State as its agent
to accept service of process in any such proceeding.  Surviving Company further
agrees that it will pay to any dissenting shareholder of DSG the amount, if
any, to which any such dissenting shareholder shall be entitled under the North
Carolina Business Corporation Act with respect to the rights of dissenting
shareholders, subject to the limitations of a pooling-of-interest transaction.

                 1.7  EFFECTIVE DATE.  The Merger shall become effective at the
time (the "Effective Time") DSG and Subsidiary Company file the Certificate of
Merger with the Secretary of State of the State of North Carolina and after all
applicable legal requirements have been fulfilled to consummate the Merger.
The parties shall use their best efforts to file the necessary merger documents
on the date of this Agreement to be effective on the date of this Agreement.

                 1.8  BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF WSG.  Upon the Effective Date, WSG
shall create one seat on its Board of Directors for Randy E.  Duncan, subject
to the annual reelection by the shareholders of WSG.


II.  STATUS AND CONVERSION OF SECURITIES; SHAREHOLDER APPROVALS


         2.1  CONVERSION OF DSG STOCK INTO WSG STOCK.  Upon the Effective Date,
the DSG Common Stock issued and outstanding by reason of the Merger and without
any action on the part of the





                                       2
<PAGE>   4
holders thereof, shall be converted into 485,000 shares of WSG Common Stock,
par value $.01 per share ("WSG Common Stock"), which shares of WSG Common Stock
shall be issued to the Shareholders as set forth on Schedule 2.1 hereto.  Any
shares of DSG Common Stock held in the treasury of DSG shall be cancelled and
all rights in respect thereof shall cease to exist and no cash or securities or
other property shall be issued in respect thereof.

                 2.2  FRACTIONAL SHARES.  No fractional shares of WSG Common
Stock or interests or rights therein shall be issued upon the conversion of DSG
Common Stock.  Instead, any fractions existing upon conversion shall be rounded
up to the next whole share.

                 2.3  EXCHANGE OF CERTIFICATES.  After the Effective Date, each
holder of certificates theretofore representing outstanding shares of DSG
Common Stock ("DSG Stock Certificates"), upon surrender thereof to such bank,
trust company or other person as shall be designated by WSG ("Exchange Agent"),
shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefor a certificate or certificates
representing the number of whole shares of WSG Common Stock into which the
shares of DSG Common Stock theretofore represented by such surrendered
certificate or certificates shall have been converted.  After the Effective
Date and until so surrendered, each outstanding certificate theretofore
representing shares of DSG Common Stock shall be deemed for all purposes to
represent the number of whole shares of WSG Common Stock into which the shares
of DSG Common Stock theretofore represented thereby shall have been converted.

                 2.4  WSG TO MAKE SHARES AVAILABLE.  By the Effective Date, WSG
shall make available by transferring to Surviving Company or by transferring
directly to the Exchange Agent, for the benefit of the Shareholders, such
number of shares of WSG Common Stock as shall be required for conversion in
accordance with this Agreement.

                 2.5  SURVIVING COMPANY CAPITAL STOCK.  All authorized shares
of Surviving Company capital stock, par value $.01 per share whether issued or
unissued, outstanding or required, shall continue unchanged as shares of
capital stock of Surviving Company.

                 2.6  STATUS OF WSG COMMON STOCK.  The shares of WSG Common
Stock to be issued to the Shareholders will be "Restricted Stock" and will not
have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or under any
laws of any state, and will bear the following legend in addition to any other
legends required by North Carolina law or by other agreements executed
contemporaneously herewith:

                 THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN
                 REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933 (THE "ACT") OR ANY
                 STATE SECURITIES ACT, AND ARE "RESTRICTED





                                       3
<PAGE>   5
                 SECURITIES" WITHIN THE MEANING OF SUCH ACTS.  THE SHARES MAY
                 NOT BE SOLD, TRANSFERRED, HYPOTHECATED OR OTHERWISE
                 DISTRIBUTED IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION UNDER
                 SUCH ACTS OR THE RECEIPT OF AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY
                 TO THE ISSUER THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED.

                 2.7  REGISTRATION RIGHTS.  WSG shall file a Registration
Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission registering the shares of
WSG Common Stock issued to the Shareholders upon request of the Shareholder
after the "lockup" period imposed by the underwriter expires, and shall use its
best efforts to cause the Registration Statement to be filed not more than six
months after the lockup period expires and to become effective as soon as
practicable thereafter.  Furthermore, WSG shall maintain such effectiveness for
a period of two years.  WSG shall pay all expenses incident to such
Registration Statement, except for any commissions or taxes related to the sale
of the shares thereunder.  Such registration rights shall be in accordance
with, and subject to, the terms and provisions of the form of Registration
Rights Agreement attached as Exhibit B hereto.  The remaining shares shall have
"piggy-back" rights, subject to the reasonable approval of any managing
underwriter, to be included in any Registration Statement filed by WSG within
two years as such registration statement relates to an underwritten public
offering of WSG's securities.

                 2.8  SHAREHOLDER APPROVALS.  Meetings of the Shareholders and
the shareholders of the Surviving Company shall be held in accordance with the
laws of their respective states of incorporation concurrent with the effective
date of this Agreement (or such later date or dates as may be approved by their
Board of Directors), in each case, among other things, to consider and act upon
the adoption of this Agreement.  In either case, the adoption of this Agreement
may be consented to in writing by the shareholders of the applicable
corporation.

III.  REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

                 3.1  REPRESENTATION AND WARRANTIES OF THE SHAREHOLDERS.
Except as otherwise set forth in the DSG Disclosures Schedule delivered by the
Shareholders to WSG and Subsidiary Company contemporaneously with the execution
and delivery of this Agreement and attached as Exhibit C hereto, and except for

<PAGE>   6
business as now being conducted.  DSG is not subject to any material disability
by reason of the failure to be duly qualified as a foreign corporation for the
transaction of business or to be in good standing under the laws of any
jurisdiction except where such failure would have a material adverse affect;
DSG is not subject to any material disability by reason of the failure to be
duly qualified as a foreign corporation for the transaction of business or to
be in good standing under the laws of any jurisdiction; DSG has heretofore
delivered to WSG a list setting forth, as of the date of this Agreement, each
jurisdiction in which DSG is qualified to do business.

                          (b)  CORPORATE AUTHORITY.  DSG has the corporate
power and authority to enter into this Agreement and (subject to the requisite
approval of the Shareholders) to carry out the transactions contemplated
hereby.  The Board of Directors of DSG has duly authorized the execution,
delivery and performance of this Agreement and other documents executed in
connection with this Agreement, including without limitation, the Registration
Rights Agreement.

                          (c)  ENFORCEABILITY.  This Agreement and each of the
other agreements referenced herein to which DSG is a party have been duly
executed and delivered by DSG, and constitute legal, valid and binding
obligations of DSG, enforceable against it in accordance with their respective
terms except to the extent that enforceability may be subject to or limited by
bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, arrangement, moratorium or other
similar laws relating to or affecting the rights of creditors generally or may
be subject to general principles of equity.

                          (d)  CAPITAL STOCK.  As of the date hereof, DSG has
an authorized capital stock consisting of 100,000 Shares of DSG Common Stock
(50,000 shares of Class A and 50,000 shares of Class B), of which 10,000 shares
of Class A are issued and outstanding and 10,000 shares of Class B are issued

are fully paid and nonassessable.

                          (e)  OPTIONS, WARRANTS AND RIGHTS.  DSG has no
outstanding options, warrants, or other rights to purchase, or convert any
obligation into, any shares of its capital stock.

                          (f)  SUBSIDIARIES.  DSG has no subsidiaries.

                          (g)  FINANCIAL STATEMENTS.  The Balance Sheet of DSG

accounting principles, except as set forth in the compilation letter attached
thereto, which are applied on a consistent basis, are correct and complete and
fairly and accurately present the financial position, results of operations,

financial statements as of December 31, 1996 have been compiled by Malcolm F.
Mitchell, C.P.A., P.A., independent public accountant.  DSG does not have any

due or not yet due, liquidated or unliquidated, or otherwise, except as and to
the extent disclosed or reflected in the Balance Sheet of DSG as of December
31, 1996 or incurred since then in the ordinary course of business.

                          (h)  NO MATERIAL CHANGE.  Since December 31, 1996,
there has not been and there is not threatened (i) any material adverse change

insurance) to any of the assets or properties of DSG that materially affects or
impairs its ability to conduct its businesses, (iii) any event or condition of
any character that has materially and adversely affected the business of DSG,
or (iv) any mortgage or pledge of any material amount of the assets or
properties of DSG, or any indebtedness incurred by DSG other than indebtedness,

                         REGISTRATION RIGHTS AGREEMENT

         THIS REGISTRATION RIGHTS AGREEMENT dated as of June 30, 1997 by and
among Wheels Sports Group, Inc., a North Carolina corporation (the "Company")
and Messrs. Randy E. Duncan, H. Edward Hickman, Robert J. Diachenko and A. Thad
Lewallen, III (the "Holders").

         The parties agree as follows:

         SECTION 1.  DEFINITIONS.  For purposes of this Agreement:

                 (a)  "Common Stock" means the Company's Common Stock, $.01 par
value;

                 (b)  "Registrable Securities" means 485,000 shares of Common
         Stock to be issued to the Holders upon closing of that certain Merger
         described in an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization of even date (the
         "Agreement"; certain terms not defined herein but used herein are used
         as defined in the Agreement);

                 (c)  "register" and "registration" refer to a registration of
         the Registrable Securities effected by filing a registration statement
         or similar document pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended
         (the "Act") and the declaring or ordering of effectiveness of such
         registration statement; and

                 (d)  The "Company" means Wheels Sports Group, Inc., a North 
         Carolina corporation.

         SECTION 2.  DEMAND REGISTRATION.

                 (a)   If at any time after July 16, 1998 and before December
         31, 1998, the Company receives a written request from a majority of
         the Holders that the Company file a registration statement under the
         Act covering the registration of Registrable Securities held by them,
         then the Company shall, subject to the limitations of this Section 2,
         use its best efforts to, within six months of the date of such
         request, effect the registration under the Act of all Registrable
         Securities and will keep such registration statement effective for a
         minimum period of 24 months thereafter. The Company shall be obligated
         to effect only one (1) registration pursuant to this Section 2(a).

                 (b)  If the 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. The Holders shall (together with the Company as
         provided in Section 3) enter into an underwriting agreement in
         customary form with a mutually acceptable underwriter or underwriters.

         SECTION 3.  "PIGGYBACK" RIGHTS.  If (but without any obligation to do
so) during the period ending, June 30, 1997, the Company proposes to register
any of its securities under the Act in connection with a public offering for
cash proceeds payable in whole or in part to the Company other than with
respect to a Registration Statement filed on Form S-8 or Form S-4 or such other
similar form then tn effect under the Act), the Company shall, at such time,
subject to the provisions of Section 6 and 7 hereof and upon request of the
Holders cause to be registered under the Act all of
<PAGE>   2
the Registrable Securities which the Holders request be registered; provided,
however if the managing underwriter of the public offering of securities
proposed to be registered by the Company advises the Holders in writing that
marketing factors require a limitation of the number of securities to be
underwritten, then the number of Registrable Securities of the Holders that may
be included In the underwriting shall be so limited pro rata. Such "piggyback
rights" shall expire on the registration and sale of the Registrable Securities
pursuant to Section 2 above or upon the sale of the Registrable Securities
hereunder, but in no event later than June 30, 1999.

         SECTION 4.  REGISTRATION PROCEDURE.  Whenever required under this
Agreement to effect the registration of any Registrable Securities, the Company
shall, as expeditiously as is reasonably possible:

                 (a)  Furnish to the Holders of the Registrable Securities
         covered by such registration statement such number of copies of a
         prospectus, including a preliminary prospectus, in conformity with the
         requirements of the Act, and such other documents as they may
         reasonably request in order to facilitate the disposition of the
         Registrable Securities owned by them.

                 (b)  In the event of any underwritten public offering, enter
         into and perform its obligations under an underwriting agreement, in
         usual and customary form, with the managing underwriter of such
         offering. The Holders participating in such underwriting shall also
         enter into and perform their obligations under such agreement.

                 (c)  Notify the Holders of Registrable Securities covered by
         such registration statement, at any time when a prospectus relating
         thereto covered by such registration statement is required to be
         delivered under the 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 in the light of the
         circumstances then existing.

         SECTION 5.  FURNISH INFORMATION.  The Holders shall promptly furnish
to the Company in writing such reasonable information regarding the Holders,
the Registrable Securities held by the Holders, and the intended method of
disposition of such securities as shall be required to effect the registration
of their Registrable Securities.

         SECTION 6.  EXPENSES OF REGISTRATION.  All of the foregoing expenses
relating to the Registrable Securities incurred in connection with
registration, filing or qualification pursuant to this Agreement, including
(without limitation) all registration, filing and qualification fees, printers'
bills, mailing and delivery expenses, accounting fees, and the fees and
disbursements of counsel for the Company, but excluding underwriting discounts
or fees, shall be borne by the Company.

         SECTION 7.  INDEMNIFICATION AND CONTRIBUTION.  In the event any
Registrable Securities are included in a registration statement under this
Agreement:

                 (a)  To the extent permitted by law, the Company will
         indemnify and hold harmless each Holder, the officers and directors of
         each Holder, any underwriter (as defined in the Act) for such holder,
         and each person, if any, who controls such Holder or underwriter
         within the



                                      2
<PAGE>   3
         meaning of the Act or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the
         "Exchange Act"), against any losses, claims, damages, or liabilities
         (joint or several) to which they may become subject under the Act, the
         Exchange Act or other federal or state law, insofar as such losses,
         claims, damages, or liabilities (or actions in respect thereto) arise
         out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue
         statement of a material fact contained in such registration statement,
         including any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained
         therein or any amendments or supplements thereto, or arise out of or
         are based upon the 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 the Company will reimburse each
         such Holder, officer or director, underwriter or controlling person
         for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in
         connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim,
         damage, liability, or action; provided however, that the indemnity
         agreement contained in this Section 7(a) shall not apply to amounts
         paid in settlement of any such loss, claim, damage, liability, or
         action if such settlement is effected without the consent of the
         Company (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), nor shall
         the Company be liable in any such case for any such loss, claim,
         damage, liability, or action to the extent that it arises out of or is
         based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission
         or alleged omission made in such registration statement, preliminary
         prospectus or final prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto
         in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished
         expressly for use in connection with such registration by any such
         Holder, underwriter or controlling person; provided, further, however,
         that if any losses, claims, damages or liabilities arise out of or are
         based upon any untrue statement, alleged untrue statement, omission or
         alleged omission contained in any preliminary prospectus, and made in
         reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished by
         such Holder expressly for use therein, which did not appear in the
         final prospectus, the Company shall not have any such liability with
         respect thereto to such Holder, any person who controls such Holder
         within the meaning of the Act, or any director of such Holder, if such
         Holder delivered a copy of the preliminary prospectus to the person
         alleging such losses, claims, damages or liabilities and failed to
         deliver a copy of the final prospectus, as amended or supplemented if
         it has been amended or supplemented, to such person at or prior to the
         written confirmation of the sale to such person, provided that such
         Holder had an obligation to deliver a copy of the final prospectus to
         such person; and

                 (b)  To the extent permitted by law, each selling Holder will
         indemnify and hold harmless the Company, each of its directors, each
         of its officers who has signed the registration statement, each
         person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of the
         Act, any underwriter and any other Holder selling securities in such
         registration statement or any of its directors or officers or any
         person who controls such Holder or underwriter against any losses,
         claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several) to which the Company
         or any such director, officers, controlling person, or underwriter or
         controlling person, or other such Holder or director, officer or
         controlling person may become subject, under the Act, the Exchange Act
         or other federal or state law, insofar as such losses, claims, damages
         or liabilities (or actions in respect thereto) arise out of or are
         based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a
         material fact contained in such registration statement, including any
         preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein or any
         amendments or supplements thereto, or arise out of or are based upon
         the omission or alleged omission to





                                       3
<PAGE>   4
         state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or
         necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, if the untrue
         statement or omission or alleged untrue statement or omission in
         respect of which such loss, claim, damage or liability is asserted was
         made in reliance upon and in conformity with written information
         furnished by such Holder expressly for use in connection with such
         registration; and each such Holder will reimburse any legal or other
         expenses reasonably incurred by the Company or any such director,
         officer, controlling person, underwriter or controlling person, or
         other Holder, officer, director, or controlling person in connection
         with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage,
         liability or action; provided however, that the indemnity agreement
         contained in this Section 7(b) shall not apply to amounts paid in
         settlement of any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action, if
         such settlement is effected without the consent of the Holder (which
         consent shall not be unreasonably withheld); provided, further that
         the maximum liability of any selling Holder under this Section 7(b) in
         regard to any registration statement shall in no event exceed the
         amount of the proceeds received by such selling Holder from the sale
         of securities under such registration statement; provided, further
         however, that if any losses, claims, damages or liabilities arise out
         of or are based upon an untrue statement, alleged untrue statement,
         omission or alleged omission contained in any preliminary prospectus
         which did not appear in the final prospectus, such seller shall not
         have any such liability with respect thereto to the Company, any
         person who controls the Company within the meaning of the Act, any
         officer of the Company who signed the registration statement or any
         director of the Company, if the Company delivered a copy of the
         preliminary prospectus to the person alleging such losses, claims,
         damages or liabilities and failed to deliver a copy of the final
         prospectus, as amended or supplemented if it has been amended or
         supplemented, to such person at or prior to the written confirmation
         of the sale to such person, provided that the Company had an
         obligation to deliver a copy of the final prospectus to such person.

                 (c)  Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under this
         Section 7 of notice of the commencement of any action (including any
         governmental action), such indemnified party will, if a claim in
         respect thereof is to be made against any indemnifying party under
         this Section 7, deliver to the indemnifying party a written notice of
         the commencement thereof, and the indemnifying party shall have the
         right to participate in and, to the extent the indemnifying party so
         desires, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly notified,
         to assume the defense thereof with counsel mutually satisfactory to
         the parties. An indemnified party shall have the right to retain its
         own counsel, however, the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be
         at the expense of the indemnified party, unless (i) the employment of
         such counsel has been specifically authorized in writing by the
         indemnifying party, (ii) the indemnifying party has failed to assume
         the defense and employ counsel, or (iii) the named parties to any such
         action (including any impleaded parties) include both the indemnified
         party and the indemnifying party, and the indemnified party shall have
         been advised by such counsel that there may be one or more legal
         defenses available to it which are different from or additional to
         those available to the indemnifying party (in which case the
         indemnifying party shall not have the right to assume the defense of
         such action on behalf of such indemnified parry, it being understood,
         however, that the indemnifying party shall not, in connection with any
         one such action or separate but substantially similar or related
         actions in the same jurisdiction arising out of the same general
         allegations or circumstances, be liable for the reasonable fees and
         expenses of more than one separate firm of attorneys for all





                                       4
<PAGE>   5
         indemnified parties). The failure to deliver written notice to the
         indemnifying party will not relieve it of any liability that it may
         have to any indemnified party under this Agreement.


                 (d)  If the indemnification provided for in this Section 7 is
         unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless an indemnified party in
         respect of any losses, claims, damages or liabilities or actions in
         respect thereof referred to therein, then each indemnifying party
         shall in lieu of; indemnifying such indemnified party contribute to
         the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of
         such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or actions in such
         proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the
         Company, on the one hand, and selling Holders, on the other, in
         connection with the statements or omissions which resulted in such
         losses, claims, damages, liabilities or actions as well as any other
         relevant equitable considerations, including the failure to give any
         required notice The relative fault shall be determined by reference
         to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement
         of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a
         material fact relates to information supplied by the Company, on the
         one hand, or by such selling Holders on the other, and the parties'
         relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to
         correct or prevent such statement or omission. The parties hereto
         acknowledge and agree that it would not be Just and equitable if
         contribution pursuant to this subparagraph (d) were determined by pro
         rata allocation (even if all of the selling Holders were treated as
         one entity for such purpose) or by any other method of allocation
         which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred
         to above in this subparagraph (d). The amount paid or payable by an
         indemnified party as a result of the losses, claims, damages,
         liabilities or actions in respect thereof referred to above in this
         subparagraph (d) shall be deemed to include any legal or other
         expenses reasonably incurred by such indemnified party in connection
         with investigating or defending any such action or claim.
         Notwithstanding the provisions of this subparagraph (d), the amount
         the selling Holders shall be required to contribute shall not exceed
         the amount, if any, by which the total price at which the securities
         sold by each of them were offered to the public exceeds the amount of
         any damages which they would have otherwise been required to pay by
         reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or
         alleged omission, or other violation of law. No person guilty of
         fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of
         the Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not
         guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation



         SECTION 8.  MISCELLANEOUS.

                 (a)  Binding Effect.  This Agreement shall be binding upon and
         shall inure to the benefit of the Company and to the Holders and their
         respective heirs, personal representatives, successors and assigns.

         sufficiently if sent by hand, registered or certified mail, postage
         prepaid, facsimile transmission or courier (next day delivery), to the

         agreement between the parties with respect to the transactions
         contemplated hereby and no party shall be bound by, nor shall any
         party be deemed to have made, any covenants, representations,

         entire Agreement. The section and paragraph headings contained in this
         Agreement are for the reference purposes only and shall not affect in
         any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.

                 (d)  Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in one or
         more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original,
         but all of which together shall constitute one and the same agreement.

                 (e)  Amendment.  This Agreement may be amended, changed,
         waived or terminated only in writing signed by each of the parties.
