                 INFORMATION REQUIRED IN REGISTRATION STATEMENT

ITEM 3.  INCORPORATION OF DOCUMENTS BY REFERENCE.

      The following documents which have heretofore been filed by Mail.com, Inc.

      Registration Statement on Form S-1 (Registration No. 333-74353), filed
      with the Commission on March 12, 1999, as amended.

      All reports and other documents subsequently filed by the Company with the
Commission pursuant to Sections 13(a), 13(c), 14 or 15(d) of the 1934 Act prior
to the filing of a post-effective amendment to this registration statement which
indicates that all securities offered have been sold or which deregisters all
securities then remaining unsold, shall be deemed to be incorporated by
reference in this registration statement and made a part hereof from their
respective dates of filing (such documents, and the documents enumerated above,
being hereinafter referred to as "Incorporated Documents"); provided, however,
that the documents enumerated above or subsequently filed by the Company
pursuant to Sections 13(a), 13(c), 14 or 15(d) of the 1934 Act in each year
during which the offering made by this registration statement is in effect prior
to the filing with the Commission of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K
covering such year shall not be Incorporated Documents or be incorporated by
reference in this registration statement or be a part hereof from and after the
filing of such annual report on Form 10-K.

      Any statement contained in an Incorporated Document shall be deemed to be
modified or superseded for purposes of this registration statement to the extent
that a statement contained herein or in any other subsequently filed
Incorporated Document modifies or supersedes such
<PAGE>   3
statement. Any such statement so modified or superseded shall not be deemed,
except as so modified or superseded, to constitute a part of this registration
statement.

ITEM 4.  DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES.

      The Class A Common Stock being registered hereunder has been registered
pursuant to Section 12 of the 1934 Act and a description of the Class A Common
Stock is contained in the 1934 Act registration statement which had been filed
with the Commission.

ITEM 5.  INTERESTS OF NAMED EXPERTS AND COUNSEL.

      The validity of our Class A Common Stock has been passed upon by David
Ambrosia, General Counsel of the Company. As of December 31, 1999, Mr. Ambrosia
owned 1,500 shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company and held an option to
purchase 250,000 shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company.

ITEM 6.  INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS.

      Section 145 of Delaware General Corporation Law empowers the Company to
indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party
to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit, or proceeding, whether
civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative (other than an action by or in
the right of the corporation) by reason of the fact that such person is or was a
director, officer, employee, or agent of the corporation as a director, officer,
employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or
other enterprise, against expenses (including attorney's fees), judgments, fines
and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such person
in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if such person acted in good
faith and in a manner such person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to
the best interests of the corporation, and with respect to any criminal action
or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe that such person's conduct was
unlawful. The termination of any cause of action, suit, or proceeding by
judgment, order, settlement, conviction, or upon plea of nolo contendre or its
equivalent, does not, of itself, create a presumption that such person did not
act in good faith and in a manner that such person reasonably believed to be in
or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to
any criminal action or proceeding, had reasonable cause to believe that such
person's conduct was unlawful.

      As permitted by Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, the
Registrant's Restated Certificate of Incorporation ("Certificate") provides that
a director of the Company will not be personally liable to the Company or its
stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director,
except (i) for any breach of the director's duty of loyalty to the Company or
its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or that involve
intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) for the unlawful
payment of dividends or unlawful stock repurchases under Section 174 of the
Delaware General Corporation Law, or (iv) for any transaction from which the
director derived an improper personal benefit.

      The By-Laws of the Company provide (i) for the indemnification of
directors and officers of the Company to the fullest extent permitted under
Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, (ii) the Company may
indemnify its other employees and agents to the same
<PAGE>   4
extent that it indemnifies its officers and directors, unless otherwise required
by law, the Company's Certificate, its bylaws or agreements, and (iii) the
Company must advance expenses, as incurred, to its directors and executive
officers in connection with any legal proceeding to the fullest extent permitted
by Delaware law, subject to limited exceptions.

      The Company has entered into indemnity agreements with each of its
directors and executive officers to give them additional contractual assurances
regarding the scope of the indemnification described above and to provide
additional procedural protections. In addition, the Company has obtained
directors' and officers' insurance providing indemnification for their
directors, officers and key employees for various liabilities.

ITEM 7.  EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION CLAIMED.

      Not applicable.

ITEM 8.  EXHIBITS.

      See Exhibit Index.

ITEM 9.  UNDERTAKINGS.

      The Company hereby undertakes:

      (1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a
post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

            (i)  to include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the
            1933 Act;

            (ii) to reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after
            the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent
            post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the
            aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set
            forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
            any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the
            total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which
            was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the
            estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of a
            prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in
            the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more
            than a 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth
            in the "Calculation of Registration Fee" table in the effective
            registration statement;

            (iii) to include any material information with respect to the plan
            of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration
            statement or any material change to such information in the
            registration statement;

provided, however, that clauses (i) and (ii) above do not apply if the
information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those
clauses is contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished to the
Commission by the Company pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the 1934
Act that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement.
<PAGE>   5
      (2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the 1933 Act,
each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration
statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such
securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering
thereof.

      (3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any
of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the
offering.

      (4) That, for purposes of determining any liability under the 1933 Act,
each filing of the registrant's annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or
Section 15(d) of the 1934 Act that is incorporated by reference in the
registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement
relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities
at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

      Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the 1933 Act may
be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Company
pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Company has been advised
that in the opinion of the Commission such indemnification is against public
policy as expressed in the 1933 Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the
event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the
payment by the Company of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or
controlling person of the Company in the successful defense of any action, suit
or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in
connection with the securities being registered, the Company will, unless in the
opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent,
submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such
indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the 1933 Act and
will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

      I have acted as counsel to Mail.com, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the
"Company"), in connection with the preparation of a registration statement on
Form S-8 (the "Registration Statement") to be filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission (the "Commission") under the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended (the "Act"), relating to the offering of up to 10,592,341 shares (the
"Shares") of the Company's Class A Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, to
be issued pursuant to the provisions of the above-referenced Plans and Stock
Option Agreements. I have examined such records, documents, statutes and
decisions as I have deemed relevant in rendering this opinion.

      I am of the opinion that when:

            (a) the applicable provisions of the Act and of State securities or
      blue sky laws shall have been complied with, and

            (b) the Company's Board of Directors shall have duly authorized the
      issuance of such Shares, and

            (c) the Shares shall have been duly issued and paid for in an amount
      not less than par value of $0.01 per share,

the Shares will be legally issued, fully paid and non-assessable.

I hereby consent to the use of this opinion as Exhibit 5 to the Registration
Statement. In giving such opinion, I do not thereby admit that I am acting
within the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the
Act or the rules or regulations of the Commission thereunder.


                                    Very truly yours,

                                    /s/ David Ambrosia

                             STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT


      AGREEMENT, dated as of December 31, 1996, between GlobeComm, Inc. (the
"Company"), a Delaware corporation doing business at 11 Broadway, Suite 660, New
York, New York and Gerald Gorman (the "Grantee") residing at ___________________
____________________. The Company and the Grantee are collectively referred to
as the "Parties."

      WHEREAS, the Grantee is employed by the Company in the capacity as
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and in partial consideration for the
Grantee's services, the Company desires to award stock options to the Grantee in
accordance with the terms of this Agreement;

      NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and the mutual covenants
and agreements set forth herein, the Parties hereto agree as follows:


SECTION I. OPTION TO PURCHASE SHARES

      1.1. Option. The Company hereby grants, as of the date of this Agreement
and future dates listed on Schedule A, to the Grantee an irrevocable option (the
"Option") to purchase the number of shares of Class A Common Stock (the
"Shares") listed on the attached Schedule A at the purchase price listed on
Schedule A (the "Purchase Price"). These options are not intended to satisfy the
requirements of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended nor
to qualify as an incentive stock option.

      1.2. Exercise of Option. In the event the Grantee wishes to exercise the
Option, in accordance with the restrictions specified below, the Grantee shall
send a written notice to the Company (the "Stock Exercise Notice") specifying a
date for the closing of such purchase.

      1.3. Vesting. The right to exercise an Option is limited as hereinafter
provided:

            (a)   An Option may be exercised as hereinafter provided only to the
                  extent that the Option has become vested as provided herein.

            (b)   The Options shall vest upon the date of grant, as is listed on
                  Schedule A.

      1.4. Termination of Employment. Upon the termination of the Grantee's
employment, the right to exercise an Option held by the Grantee shall be as
follows:

            Grantee's rights hereunder are not contingent upon his or her
continued employment; provided, however, if the Grantee's employment with the
Company is terminated by reason of death, the Board or Committee, in its sole
discretion, may require that the estate of a deceased Grantee agree to be bound
by all of the terms and conditions of the Plan.

                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.1


      1.5. Transferability. No Option shall be transferable except by will or
the laws of descent and distribution. An Option shall be exercisable during the
Grantee's lifetime only by the Grantee.

      1.6. Duration of Options. Options may be exercised, upon satisfaction of
the conditions specified in Section 1.3, for terms of up to but not exceeding
ten (10) years from the date of grant.

      1.7. Additional Options. In the event that the Company grants additional
options to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock to the Grantee, unless agreed
to the contrary between the Parties, the additional options will be subject to
the terms of this Agreement.


SECTION II. THE CLOSING

      2.1. Closing Date. Any closing hereunder shall take place on the date
specified by the Grantee in its Stock Exercise Notice pursuant to Section 1 at
10:00 A.M., at the offices of the Company, or at such other time and place as
the parties hereto may agree (the "Closing Date"). On the Closing Date, the
Company will deliver to the Grantee a certificate or certificates, duly
endorsed, representing the Shares and the Grantee will purchase such Shares from
the Company at the price per Share equal to the Exercise Price. In the event
that any federal, state, or local income taxes, employment taxes, Federal
Insurance Contribution Act ("FICA") withholdings or other amounts are required
by applicable law or governmental regulation to be withheld from the grantee in
connection with the exercise, these amounts must be remitted to the Company in
addition to the Exercise Price. Any payment made by the Grantee to the Company
pursuant to this Agreement shall be made by certified or official bank check.


      2.2. Legends. The certificates representing the Shares may bear an
appropriate legend relating to the fact that such Shares have not been
registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act").


SECTION III. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE GRANTEE

      3.1. Investment Representation. The Grantee represents and warrants to the
Company that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises
the Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for
its own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner
which would be in violation of the Act.

      3.2. Restricted Securities. The Grantee represents and warrants to the
Company that the Grantee is an Accredited Investor as defined in Rule 501
promulgated under the Act. The Grantee understands that, if and when it
exercises the Option, the Grantee will be acquiring restricted securities under
applicable federal securities laws, and may dispose of such Shares only pursuant
to an effective registration statement under the Act or an exemption from
<PAGE>   3
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.1


registration if available. The Grantee represents and warrants to the Company
that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises the
Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for its
own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner which
would be in violation of the Act.


SECTION IV. RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL

      If, at any time after the Closing Date, the Grantee proposes to sell all
or any part of the Shares in a transaction not required to be registered under
the Act, it shall give the Company the opportunity, in the following manner, to
purchase such Shares:

      4.1. Notice. The Grantee shall give notice to the Company in writing of
its intent to sell Shares (a "Disposition Notice"), specifying the number of
Shares to be sold, the price and the material terms of any agreement relating
thereto. The Disposition Notice may be given at any time, including prior to the
giving of any Stock Exercise Notice.

      4.2. Right to Purchase. The Company or its designee shall have the right,
exercisable by written notice given to the Grantee within five (5) days after
receipt of a Disposition Notice, to purchase all, but not less than all, of the
Shares specified in the Disposition Notice at the price set forth in the
Disposition Notice.

      4.3. Closing. If the Company exercises its right of first refusal
hereunder, the closing of the purchase of the Shares with respect to which such
right has been exercised shall take place within five (5) days after the notice
of such exercise; provided, however, that at any time prior to the closing of
the purchase of Shares hereunder, the Grantee may determine not to sell the
Shares and revoke the Disposition Notice and, by so doing, cancel the Company's
right of first refusal with respect thereto.

      4.4. Right to Sell. If the Company does not exercise its right of first
refusal hereunder within the time specified for such exercise, the Grantee shall
be free for thirty (30) days following the expiration of such time for exercise
to sell or enter into an agreement to sell the Shares specified in the
Disposition Notice, at the price specified in the Disposition Notice or any
price in excess thereof and otherwise on substantially the same terms set forth
in the Disposition Notice; provided, that if such sale is not consummated within
such 30-day period, then the provisions of this Section 4 will again apply to
the sale of such Shares.


SECTION V. INFORMATION

      Upon written request by the Grantee, the Company shall furnish to the
Grantee such information regarding the Company and its operation as shall be
reasonably necessary to enable the Grantee to make a decision as to whether or
not to exercise the Option; provided, however, that in no event shall the
Company be required to furnish information which constitutes trade
<PAGE>   4
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.1


secrets or other proprietary information or the furnishing of which would be
unduly burdensome, financially or otherwise, to the Company.


SECTION VI. ADJUSTMENT FOR CHANGES IN THE STOCK

      6.1. Stock Reclassification. In the event the shares of Stock, as
presently constituted, shall be changed into or exchanged for a different number
or kind of shares or other securities of the Company (whether by reason of
merger, consolidation, recapitalization, reclassification, split, reverse split,
combination of shares or otherwise), then there shall be substituted for or
added to each share of Stock theretofore or thereafter subject to an Option the
number and kind of shares of capital stock or other securities into, which each
outstanding share of Stock shall be changed, or for which each such share shall
be exchanged, or to which each such share shall be entitled, as the case may be.
The price and other terms of outstanding Options shall also be appropriately
amended to reflect the foregoing events. In the event there shall be any other
change in the number or kind of outstanding shares of the Stock, or of any
capital stock or other securities into which the Stock shall have been changed
or for which it shall have been exchanged, if the Board of Directors shall, in
its sole discretion, determine that the change equitably requires an adjustment
in any Option theretofore granted, then adjustments shall be made in accordance
with its determination.

      6.2. Fractional Shares. Fractional shares resulting from any adjustment in
Options pursuant to this Section 6 may be settled in cash or otherwise as the
Board of Directors shall determine.

      6.3. Notice. Notice of any adjustment shall be given by the Company to the
Grantee in accordance with the requirements for providing notice to a Party set
forth in Section 7.7.


      6.4. Sale of the Assets of the Company, etc. Notwithstanding Section 6.1,
the Board of Directors shall have the power, in the event of the disposition of
all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or the dissolution of the
Company, or the merger or consolidation of the Company, or the making of a
tender offer to purchase all or a substantial portion of outstanding Stock of
the Company, to amend this Agreement (upon such conditions as it shall deem fit)
to (i) permit the exercise of the Options described herein prior to the
effective date of the transaction and to terminate all unexercised Options as of
that date, or (ii) require the forfeiture of all Options, provided the Company
pays to the Grantee the excess of the fair market value of the Stock subject to
the Option (as determined by the Board of Directors if the Company's common
stock is not then freely tradable) over the exercise price of the Option.


SECTION VII. PUBLIC OFFERING OF COMPANY'S COMMON STOCK

      7.1. Lock-Up Agreement. Grantee, if requested by the Company and the lead
underwriter of any public offering of the common stock or other securities of
the Company (the
<PAGE>   5
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.1


"Lead Underwriter"), hereby irrevocably agrees not to sell, contract to sell,
grant any option to purchase, transfer the economic risk of ownership in, make
any short sale of, pledge or otherwise transfer or dispose of any interest in
any common stock or any securities convertible into or exchangeable or
exercisable for or any other rights to purchase or acquire common stock (except
common stock included in such public offering or acquired on the public market
after such offering) during the 180-day period following the effective date of a
registration statement of the Company filed under the Securities Act, or such
shorter period of time as the Lead Underwriter shall specify. Grantee further
agrees to sign such documents as may be requested by the Lead Underwriter to
effect the foregoing and agrees that the Company may impose stop-transfer
instructions with respect to such common stock subject until the end of such
period. The Company and Grantee acknowledge that each Lead Underwriter of a
public offering of the Company's stock, during the period of such offering and
for the 180-day period thereafter, is an intended beneficiary of this Section 7.

      7.2. No Amendment or Waiver. During the period from identification as a
Lead Underwriter in connection with any public offering of the Company's common
stock until the earlier of (i) the expiration of the lock-up period specified in
Section 7.1 in connection with such offering or (ii) the abandonment of such
offering by the Company and the Lead Underwriter, the provisions of the Section
7 may not be amended or waived except with the consent of the Lead Underwriter.


SECTION VIII. MISCELLANEOUS

      8.1. No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement shall not confer any
rights of remedies upon any Person other than the Parties and their respective
successors and permitted assigns.

      8.2. Default. In the event a Party fails to comply with the terms of this
Agreement, any other Party to this Agreement shall be entitled to (a) injunctive
relief, as a matter of right, in any court of competent jurisdiction; (b) any
other relief or remedy that may be available pursuant to this Agreement or at
law or equity.

      8.3. Waivers. The waiver by the undersigned of any of the provisions of
this Agreement shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent
breach.

      8.4. Headings. The section headings contained in this Agreement are for
reference purposes only and shall not affect the construction and interpretation
of this Agreement.

      8.5. Severability. The invalidity of all of any part of any section of
this Agreement shall not render invalid the remainder of such section. If any
provision of this Agreement is so broad as to be unenforceable, such provisions
shall be interpreted to be only so broad as is enforceable.

      8.6. Binding Effects. This Agreement shall not be assigned by any

                             STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT


      AGREEMENT, dated as of June 1, 1996, between GlobeComm, Inc. (the
"Company"), a Delaware corporation doing business at 11 Broadway, Suite 660, New
York, New York and Gerald Gorman (the "Grantee") residing at ___________________
___________________________________. The Company and the Grantee are
collectively referred to as the "Parties."

      WHEREAS, the Grantee is employed by the Company in the capacity as
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and in partial consideration for the
Grantee's services, the Company desires to award stock options to the Grantee in
accordance with the terms of this Agreement;

      NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and the mutual covenants
and agreements set forth herein, the Parties hereto agree as follows:


SECTION I. OPTION TO PURCHASE SHARES

      1.1. Option. The Company hereby grants, as of the date of this Agreement
and future dates listed on Schedule A, to the Grantee an irrevocable option (the
"Option") to purchase the number of shares of Class A Common Stock (the
"Shares") listed on the attached Schedule A at the purchase price listed on
Schedule A (the "Purchase Price"). These options are not intended to satisfy the
requirements of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended nor
to qualify as an incentive stock option.

      1.2. Exercise of Option. In the event the Grantee wishes to exercise the
Option, in accordance with the restrictions specified below, the Grantee shall
send a written notice to the Company (the "Stock Exercise Notice") specifying a
date for the closing of such purchase.

      1.3. Vesting. The right to exercise an Option is limited as hereinafter
provided:

            (a) The Option may be exercised as hereinafter provided only to the
            extent that they had become vested as provided herein.

            (b) The Options shall vest as follows:

                  (i) The Option is granted on the date listed on Schedule A.

                  (ii) The Option shall vest at the rate of one-sixteenth for
each calendar quarter ("Calendar Quarter"), defined as the four three-month
periods of a year with commencing dates of January 1, April 1, July 1 and
October 1, on the last day of each such Calendar Quarter, over the course of
four years after the Option is granted to the Grantee.

                  (iii) (1) An Option granted after the first day of a Calendar
Quarter but
<PAGE>   2
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.2


before the fifteenth day of the second month of such Calender Quarter shall not
begin to vest until the last day of the subsequent Calendar Quarter ("Initial
Vesting Date"). For such Options, two-sixteenths of the Option will vest on the
Initial Vesting Date, and an additional one-sixteenth will vest for each
additional Calendar Quarter until the Option is fully vested; (2) Options
granted after the fifteenth day of the second month of a Calendar Quarter but
before the end of such Calendar Quarter shall first not begin to vest until the
last day of the subsequent Calendar Quarter. For such Options, one-sixteenth of
the Option will vest on the Initial Vesting Date, and an additional
one-sixteenth will vest for each additional Calendar Quarter until the Option is
fully vested.

      1.4. Termination of Employment. Upon the termination of the Grantee's
employment, the right to exercise an Option held by the Grantee shall be as
follows:

            (a) Disability. If the Grantee's employment is terminated because of
permanent disability as defined in Code Section 22(e)(3), the Grantee may,
within one year following termination, exercise the Option with respect to all
or part of the shares subject thereto in which the right to purchase shares had
accrued or vested at the time of termination of employment.

            (b) Death. If a Grantee's employment is terminated by death, his or
her estate shall have the right for a period of one year following the date of
death to exercise the Option to the extent that the right to exercise had
accrued or vested prior to the date of death. A Grantee's "estate" shall mean
his or her legal representative or any person who acquires the right to exercise
an Option by reason of the Grantee's death. The Board or Committee may in its
discretion require the estate of the Grantee to supply the Board or Committee
with written notice of the Grantee's death and a copy of the will or other
documents deemed necessary to establish the validity of the transfer of an
Option. The Board or Committee may also require that the estate of a deceased
Grantee agree to be bound by all of the terms and conditions of the Plan.

            (c) Cause and Competition. If the employment of Grantee is
terminated for "Cause" (as defined below) or the Grantee terminates his or her
employment and commences working for a competitor (as defined below), the
Grantee's rights under any then outstanding Option, whether or not vested, shall
terminate at the time of termination of employment. "Cause" shall mean any
willful or intentional act having the effect of injuring the reputation,
business or business relationship of the Company. "Competitor" shall mean any
person or entity engaged in a business competitive (in the good faith judgment
of the Board or Committee) with that of the Company.

            (d) Other Reason. In the case of a Grantee whose employment is
terminated for any reason other than those provided above, the Grantee may,
within sixty (60) days following the termination (or if the Board has notified
the Grantee of its intent to register an offering of the Company's securities as
described in Section 1.4 of this Agreement, the time period becomes sixty (60)
days following the 180-day lock-up period provided for in Section 1.4) exercise
an Option to the extent the right to exercise had accrued prior to termination;
provided, however that the Company may retain the shares of Stock issuable upon
exercise of an Option pursuant to this paragraph (iv) for a period of sixty (60)
days from exercise and, if the Grantee becomes
<PAGE>   3
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.2


employed or otherwise associated with a competitor or enters into an agreement
to do so during that sixty (60) day period, either as a director, officer,
employee, agent, representative or otherwise, then the Company may retain and
cancel those shares, refund the exercise price paid by the Grantee and
thereafter all rights of the Grantee in the Stock shall immediately cease; and
provided, further, that if the Grantee dies prior to the end of the sixty (60)
day period after termination of employment, his or her estate (as defined above)
shall have the right, subject to the procedures set forth above, to exercise the
Option within one year following the termination.

      1.5. Transferability. No Option shall be transferable except by will or
the laws of descent and distribution. An Option shall be exercisable during the
Grantee's lifetime only by the Grantee.

      1.6. Duration of Options. Options may be exercised, upon satisfaction of
the conditions specified in Section 1.3, for terms of up to but not exceeding
ten (10) years from the date of grant.

violation of the Act.

      3.2. Restricted Securities. The Grantee represents and warrants to the
Company that the Grantee is an Accredited Investor as defined in Rule 501
promulgated under the Act. The Grantee understands that, if and when it

applicable federal securities laws, and may dispose of such Shares only pursuant
to an effective registration statement under the Act or an exemption from
registration if available. The Grantee represents and warrants to the Company
that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises the
Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for its
own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner which
would be in violation of the Act.


SECTION IV. RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL

      If, at any time after the Closing Date, the Grantee proposes to sell all
or any part of the Shares in a transaction not required to be registered under
the Act, it shall give the Company the opportunity, in the following manner, to
purchase such Shares:

      4.1. Notice. The Grantee shall give notice to the Company in writing of
its intent to sell Shares (a "Disposition Notice"), specifying the number of
Shares to be sold, the price and the material terms of any agreement relating
thereto. The Disposition Notice may be given at any time, including prior to the
giving of any Stock Exercise Notice.

      4.2. Right to Purchase. The Company or its designee shall have the right,
exercisable by written notice given to the Grantee within five (5) days after
receipt of a Disposition Notice, to purchase all, but not less than all, of the
Shares specified in the Disposition Notice at the price set forth in the
Disposition Notice.

      4.3. Closing. If the Company exercises its right of first refusal
hereunder, the closing of the purchase of the Shares with respect to which such
right has been exercised shall take place within five (5) days after the notice
of such exercise; provided, however, that at any time prior to the closing of
the purchase of Shares hereunder, the Grantee may determine not to sell the
Shares and revoke the Disposition Notice and, by so doing, cancel the Company's
right of first refusal with respect thereto.

      4.4. Right to Sell. If the Company does not exercise its right of first
refusal hereunder within the time specified for such exercise, the Grantee shall
be free for thirty (30) days following the expiration of such time for exercise
to sell or enter into an agreement to sell the Shares specified in the
Disposition Notice, at the price specified in the Disposition Notice or any
price in excess thereof and otherwise on substantially the same terms set forth
in the Disposition Notice; provided, that if such sale is not consummated within
such 30-day period, then the provisions of this Section 4 will again apply to
the sale of such Shares.

SECTION V. INFORMATION

      Upon written request by the Grantee, the Company shall furnish to the
Grantee such information regarding the Company and its operation as shall be
reasonably necessary to enable the Grantee to make a decision as to whether or
not to exercise the Option; provided, however, that in no event shall the
Company be required to furnish information which constitutes trade secrets or
other proprietary information or the furnishing of which would be unduly
burdensome, financially or otherwise, to the Company.


SECTION VI. ADJUSTMENT FOR CHANGES IN THE STOCK

      6.1. Stock Reclassification. In the event the shares of Stock, as
presently constituted, shall be changed into or exchanged for a different number
or kind of shares or other securities of the Company (whether by reason of
merger, consolidation, recapitalization, reclassification, split, reverse split,
combination of shares or otherwise), then there shall be substituted for or
added to each share of Stock theretofore or thereafter subject to an Option the
number and kind of shares of capital stock or other securities into, which each
outstanding share of Stock shall be changed, or for which each such share shall
be exchanged, or to which each such share shall be entitled, as the case may be.
The price and other terms of outstanding Options shall also be appropriately
amended to reflect the foregoing events. In the event there shall be any other
change in the number or kind of outstanding shares of the Stock, or of any
capital stock or other securities into which the Stock shall have been changed
or for which it shall have been exchanged, if the Board of Directors shall, in
its sole discretion, determine that the change equitably requires an adjustment
in any Option theretofore granted, then adjustments shall be made in accordance
with its determination.

Options pursuant to this Section 6 may be settled in cash or otherwise as the

the Board of Directors shall have the power, in the event of the disposition of
all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or the dissolution of the
Company, or the merger or consolidation of the Company, or the making of a
tender offer to purchase all or a substantial portion of outstanding Stock of
the Company, to amend this Agreement (upon such conditions as it shall deem fit)
to (i) permit the exercise of the Options described herein prior to the
effective date of the transaction and to terminate all unexercised Options as of
that date, or (ii) require the forfeiture of all Options, provided the Company
pays to the Grantee the excess of the fair market value of the Stock subject to
the Option (as determined by the Board of Directors if the Company's common
stock is not then freely tradable) over the exercise price of the Option.

SECTION VII. PUBLIC OFFERING OF COMPANY'S COMMON STOCK

      7.1. Lock-Up Agreement. Grantee, if requested by the Company and the lead
underwriter of any public offering of the common stock or other securities of
the Company (the "Lead Underwriter"), hereby irrevocably agrees not to sell,
contract to sell, grant any option to purchase, transfer the economic risk of
ownership in, make any short sale of, pledge or otherwise transfer or dispose of
any interest in any common stock or any securities convertible into or
exchangeable or exercisable for or any other rights to purchase or acquire
common stock (except common stock included in such public offering or acquired
on the public market after such offering) during the 180-day period following
the effective date of a registration statement of the Company filed under the
Securities Act, or such shorter period of time as the Lead Underwriter shall
specify. Grantee further agrees to sign such documents as may be requested by
the Lead Underwriter to effect the foregoing and agrees that the Company may
impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to such common stock subject
until the end of such period. The Company and Grantee acknowledge that each Lead
Underwriter of a public offering of the Company's stock, during the period of
such offering and for the 180-day period thereafter, is an intended beneficiary
of this Section 7.

      7.2. No Amendment or Waiver. During the period from identification as a
Lead Underwriter in connection with any public offering of the Company's common
stock until the earlier of (i) the expiration of the lock-up period specified in
Section 7.1 in connection with such offering or (ii) the abandonment of such
offering by the Company and the Lead Underwriter, the provisions of the Section
7 may not be amended or waived except with the consent of the Lead Underwriter.


SECTION VIII. MISCELLANEOUS

      8.1. No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement shall not confer any
rights of remedies upon any Person other than the Parties and their respective
successors and permitted assigns.

      8.2. Default. In the event a Party fails to comply with the terms of this

relief, as a matter of right, in any court of competent jurisdiction; (b) any
other relief or remedy that may be available pursuant to this Agreement or at
law or equity.

      8.3. Waivers. The waiver by the undersigned of any of the provisions of

      8.5. Severability. The invalidity of all of any part of any section of

                             STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT

         AGREEMENT, dated as of February 1, 1997, between GlobeComm, Inc. (the
"Company"), a Delaware corporation doing business at 11 Broadway, Suite 660, New
York, New York and Gary Millin (the "Grantee") residing at ____________________.
The Company and the Grantee are collectively referred to as the "Parties."

         WHEREAS, the Grantee is employed by the Company in the capacity as
President, and in partial consideration for the Grantee's services, the Company
desires to award stock options to the Grantee in accordance with the terms of
this Agreement;

         NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and the mutual
covenants and agreements set forth herein, the Parties hereto agree as follows:

SECTION I. OPTION TO PURCHASE SHARES

         1.1. Option. The Company hereby grants, as of the date of this
Agreement and future dates listed on Schedule A, to the Grantee an irrevocable
option (the "Option") to purchase the number of shares of Class A Common Stock
(the "Shares") listed on the attached Schedule A at the purchase price listed on
Schedule A (the "Purchase Price"). These options are not intended to satisfy the
requirements of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended nor
to qualify as an incentive stock option.

         1.2. Exercise of Option. In the event the Grantee wishes to exercise
the Option, in accordance with the restrictions specified below, the Grantee
shall send a written notice to the Company (the "Stock Exercise Notice")
specifying a date for the closing of such purchase.

         1.3. Vesting. The right to exercise an Option is limited as hereinafter
provided:

                  (a) The Option may be exercised as hereinafter provided only
                  to the extent that they had become vested as provided herein.

                  (b) The Options shall vest as follows:

                           (i) The Option is granted on the date listed on
Schedule A.

                           (ii) The Option shall vest at the rate of
one-sixteenth for each calendar quarter ("Calendar Quarter"), defined as the
four three-month periods of a year with commencing dates of January 1, April 1,
July 1 and October 1, on the last day of each such Calendar Quarter, over the
course of four years after the Option is granted to the Grantee.

                           (iii) (1) An Option granted after the first day of a
Calendar Quarter but before the fifteenth day of the second month of such
Calender Quarter shall not begin to vest
<PAGE>   2
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.3


until the last day of the subsequent Calendar Quarter ("Initial Vesting Date").
For such Options, two-sixteenths of the Option will vest on the Initial Vesting
Date, and an additional one-sixteenth will vest for each additional Calendar
Quarter until the Option is fully vested; (2) Options granted after the
fifteenth day of the second month of a Calendar Quarter but before the end of
such Calendar Quarter shall first not begin to vest until the last day of the
subsequent Calendar Quarter. For such Options, one-sixteenth of the Option will
vest on the Initial Vesting Date, and an additional one-sixteenth will vest for
each additional Calendar Quarter until the Option is fully vested.

         1.4. Termination of Employment. Upon the termination of the Grantee's
employment, the right to exercise an Option held by the Grantee shall be as
follows:

                  (a) Disability. If the Grantee's employment is terminated
because of permanent disability as defined in Code Section 22(e)(3), the Grantee
may, within one year following termination, exercise the Option with respect to
all or part of the shares subject thereto in which the right to purchase shares
had accrued or vested at the time of termination of employment.

                  (b) Death. If a Grantee's employment is terminated by death,
his or her estate shall have the right for a period of one year following the
date of death to exercise the Option to the extent that the right to exercise
had accrued or vested prior to the date of death. A Grantee's "estate" shall
mean his or her legal representative or any person who acquires the right to
exercise an Option by reason of the Grantee's death. The Board or Committee may
in its discretion require the estate of the Grantee to supply the Board or
Committee with written notice of the Grantee's death and a copy of the will or
other documents deemed necessary to establish the validity of the transfer of an
Option. The Board or Committee may also require that the estate of a deceased
Grantee agree to be bound by all of the terms and conditions of the Plan.

                  (c) Cause and Competition. If the employment of Grantee is
terminated for "Cause" (as defined below) or the Grantee terminates his or her
employment and commences working for a competitor (as defined below), the
Grantee's rights under any then outstanding Option, whether or not vested, shall
terminate at the time of termination of employment. "Cause" shall mean any
willful or intentional act having the effect of injuring the reputation,
business or business relationship of the Company. "Competitor" shall mean any
person or entity engaged in a business competitive (in the good faith judgment
of the Board or Committee) with that of the Company.

                  (d) Other Reason. In the case of a Grantee whose employment is
terminated for any reason other than those provided above, the Grantee may,
within sixty (60) days following the termination (or if the Board has notified
the Grantee of its intent to register an offering of the Company's securities as
described in Section 1.4 of this Agreement, the time period becomes sixty (60)
days following the 180-day lock-up period provided for in Section 1.4) exercise
an Option to the extent the right to exercise had accrued prior to termination;
provided, however that the Company may retain the shares of Stock issuable upon
exercise of an Option pursuant to this paragraph (iv) for a period of sixty (60)
days from exercise and, if the Grantee becomes employed or otherwise associated
with a competitor or enters into an agreement to do so during
<PAGE>   3
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.3


that sixty (60) day period, either as a director, officer, employee, agent,
representative or otherwise, then the Company may retain and cancel those
shares, refund the exercise price paid by the Grantee and thereafter all rights
of the Grantee in the Stock shall immediately cease; and provided, further, that
if the Grantee dies prior to the end of the sixty (60) day period after
termination of employment, his or her estate (as defined above) shall have the
right, subject to the procedures set forth above, to exercise the Option within
one year following the termination.

         1.5. Transferability. No Option shall be transferable except by will or
the laws of descent and distribution. An Option shall be exercisable during the
Grantee's lifetime only by the Grantee.

         1.6. Duration of Options. Options may be exercised, upon satisfaction
of the conditions specified in Section 1.3, for terms of up to but not exceeding
ten (10) years from the date of grant.

         1.7. Additional Options. In the event that the Company grants
additional options to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock to the Grantee,
unless agreed to the contrary between the Parties, the additional options will
be subject to the terms of this Agreement.


SECTION II. THE CLOSING

          2.1. Closing Date. Any closing hereunder shall take place on the date
specified by the Grantee in its Stock Exercise Notice pursuant to Section 1 at
10:00 A.M., at the offices of the Company, or at such other time and place as
the parties hereto may agree (the "Closing Date"). On the Closing Date, the
Company will deliver to the Grantee a certificate or certificates, duly
endorsed, representing the Shares and the Grantee will purchase such Shares from
the Company at the price per Share equal to the Exercise Price. In the event
that any federal, state, or local income taxes, employment taxes, Federal
Insurance Contribution Act ("FICA") withholdings or other amounts are required
by applicable law or governmental regulation to be withheld from the grantee in
connection with the exercise, these amounts must be remitted to the Company in
addition to the Exercise Price. Any payment made by the Grantee to the Company
pursuant to this Agreement shall be made by certified or official bank check.

         2.2. Legends. The certificates representing the Shares may bear an
appropriate legend relating to the fact that such Shares have not been
registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act").


SECTION III. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE GRANTEE

         3.1. Investment Representation. The Grantee represents and warrants to
the Company that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it
exercises the Option, will be
<PAGE>   4
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.3


acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for its own account and
not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner which would be in
violation of the Act.

         3.2. Restricted Securities. The Grantee represents and warrants to the
Company that the Grantee is an Accredited Investor as defined in Rule 501
promulgated under the Act. The Grantee understands that, if and when it
exercises the Option, the Grantee will be acquiring restricted securities under
applicable federal securities laws, and may dispose of such Shares only pursuant
to an effective registration statement under the Act or an exemption from
registration if available. The Grantee represents and warrants to the Company
that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises the
Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for its
own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner which
would be in violation of the Act.


SECTION IV. RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL

         If, at any time after the Closing Date, the Grantee proposes to sell
all or any part of the Shares in a transaction not required to be registered
under the Act, it shall give the Company the opportunity, in the following
manner, to purchase such Shares:

         4.1. Notice. The Grantee shall give notice to the Company in writing of
its intent to sell Shares (a "Disposition Notice"), specifying the number of
Shares to be sold, the price and the material terms of any agreement relating
thereto. The Disposition Notice may be given at any time, including prior to the
giving of any Stock Exercise Notice.

         4.2. Right to Purchase. The Company or its designee shall have the
right, exercisable by written notice given to the Grantee within five (5) days

of the Shares specified in the Disposition Notice at the price set forth in the
Disposition Notice.

         4.3. Closing. If the Company exercises its right of first refusal
hereunder, the closing of the purchase of the Shares with respect to which such
right has been exercised shall take place within five (5) days after the notice
of such exercise; provided, however, that at any time prior to the closing of
the purchase of Shares hereunder, the Grantee may determine not to sell the
Shares and revoke the Disposition Notice and, by so doing, cancel the Company's
right of first refusal with respect thereto.

         4.4. Right to Sell. If the Company does not exercise its right of first
refusal hereunder within the time specified for such exercise, the Grantee shall
be free for thirty (30) days following the expiration of such time for exercise
to sell or enter into an agreement to sell the Shares specified in the
Disposition Notice, at the price specified in the Disposition Notice or any

SECTION V. INFORMATION

         Upon written request by the Grantee, the Company shall furnish to the
Grantee such information regarding the Company and its operation as shall be
reasonably necessary to enable the Grantee to make a decision as to whether or

other proprietary information or the furnishing of which would be unduly
burdensome, financially or otherwise, to the Company.


SECTION VI. ADJUSTMENT FOR CHANGES IN THE STOCK

         6.1. Stock Reclassification. In the event the shares of Stock, as
presently constituted, shall be changed into or exchanged for a different number
or kind of shares or other securities of the Company (whether by reason of
merger, consolidation, recapitalization, reclassification, split, reverse split,
combination of shares or otherwise), then there shall be substituted for or
added to each share of Stock theretofore or thereafter subject to an Option the
number and kind of shares of capital stock or other securities into, which each
outstanding share of Stock shall be changed, or for which each such share shall
be exchanged, or to which each such share shall be entitled, as the case may be.
The price and other terms of outstanding Options shall also be appropriately
amended to reflect the foregoing events. In the event there shall be any other
change in the number or kind of outstanding shares of the Stock, or of any
capital stock or other securities into which the Stock shall have been changed
or for which it shall have been exchanged, if the Board of Directors shall, in
its sole discretion, determine that the change equitably requires an adjustment
in any Option theretofore granted, then adjustments shall be made in accordance
with its determination.

         6.2. Fractional Shares. Fractional shares resulting from any adjustment
in Options pursuant to this Section 6 may be settled in cash or otherwise as the
Board of Directors shall determine.

the Grantee in accordance with the requirements for providing notice to a Party
set forth in Section 7.7.

as it shall deem fit) to (i) permit the exercise of the Options described herein
prior to the effective date of the transaction and to terminate all unexercised
Options as of that date, or (ii) require the forfeiture of all Options, provided
the Company pays to the Grantee the excess of the fair market value of the Stock
subject to the Option (as determined by the Board of Directors if the Company's

                             STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT

         AGREEMENT, dated as of June 1, 1996, between GlobeComm, Inc. (the
"Company"), a Delaware corporation doing business at 11 Broadway, Suite 660, New
York, New York and Gary Millin (the "Grantee") residing at ____________________.
The Company and the Grantee are collectively referred to as the "Parties."

         WHEREAS, the Grantee is employed by the Company in the capacity as
President, and in partial consideration for the Grantee's services, the Company
desires to award stock options to the Grantee in accordance with the terms of
this Agreement;

         NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and the mutual
covenants and agreements set forth herein, the Parties hereto agree as follows:


SECTION I. OPTION TO PURCHASE SHARES

         1.1. Option. The Company hereby grants, as of the date of this
Agreement and future dates listed on Schedule A, to the Grantee an irrevocable
option (the "Option") to purchase the number of shares of Class A Common Stock
(the "Shares") listed on the attached Schedule A at the purchase price listed on
Schedule A (the "Purchase Price"). These options are not intended to satisfy the
requirements of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended nor
to qualify as an incentive stock option.

         1.2. Exercise of Option. In the event the Grantee wishes to exercise
the Option, in accordance with the restrictions specified below, the Grantee
shall send a written notice to the Company (the "Stock Exercise Notice")
specifying a date for the closing of such purchase.

         1.3. Vesting. The right to exercise an Option is limited as hereinafter
provided:

                  (a) The Option may be exercised as hereinafter provided only
                  to the extent that they had become vested as provided herein.

                  (b) The Options shall vest as follows:

                           (i) The Option is granted on the date listed on
Schedule A.

                           (ii) The Option shall vest at the rate of
one-sixteenth for each calendar quarter ("Calendar Quarter"), defined as the
four three-month periods of a year with commencing dates of January 1, April 1,
July 1 and October 1, on the last day of each such Calendar Quarter, over the
course of four years after the Option is granted to the Grantee.

                           (iii) (1) An Option granted after the first day of a
Calendar Quarter but before the fifteenth day of the second month of such
Calender Quarter shall not begin to vest
<PAGE>   2
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.4


until the last day of the subsequent Calendar Quarter ("Initial Vesting Date").
For such Options, two-sixteenths of the Option will vest on the Initial Vesting
Date, and an additional one-sixteenth will vest for each additional Calendar
Quarter until the Option is fully vested; (2) Options granted after the
fifteenth day of the second month of a Calendar Quarter but before the end of
such Calendar Quarter shall first not begin to vest until the last day of the
subsequent Calendar Quarter. For such Options, one-sixteenth of the Option will
vest on the Initial Vesting Date, and an additional one-sixteenth will vest for
each additional Calendar Quarter until the Option is fully vested.

         1.4. Termination of Employment. Upon the termination of the Grantee's
employment, the right to exercise an Option held by the Grantee shall be as
follows:

                  (a) Disability. If the Grantee's employment is terminated
because of permanent disability as defined in Code Section 22(e)(3), the Grantee
may, within one year following termination, exercise the Option with respect to
all or part of the shares subject thereto in which the right to purchase shares
had accrued or vested at the time of termination of employment.

                  (b) Death. If a Grantee's employment is terminated by death,
his or her estate shall have the right for a period of one year following the
date of death to exercise the Option to the extent that the right to exercise
had accrued or vested prior to the date of death. A Grantee's "estate" shall
mean his or her legal representative or any person who acquires the right to
exercise an Option by reason of the Grantee's death. The Board or Committee may
in its discretion require the estate of the Grantee to supply the Board or
Committee with written notice of the Grantee's death and a copy of the will or
other documents deemed necessary to establish the validity of the transfer of an
Option. The Board or Committee may also require that the estate of a deceased
Grantee agree to be bound by all of the terms and conditions of the Plan.

                  (c) Cause and Competition. If the employment of Grantee is
terminated for "Cause" (as defined below) or the Grantee terminates his or her
employment and commences working for a competitor (as defined below), the
Grantee's rights under any then outstanding Option, whether or not vested, shall
terminate at the time of termination of employment. "Cause" shall mean any
willful or intentional act having the effect of injuring the reputation,
business or business relationship of the Company. "Competitor" shall mean any
person or entity engaged in a business competitive (in the good faith judgment
of the Board or Committee) with that of the Company.

                  (d) Other Reason. In the case of a Grantee whose employment is
terminated for any reason other than those provided above, the Grantee may,
within sixty (60) days following the termination (or if the Board has notified
the Grantee of its intent to register an offering of the Company's securities as
described in Section 1.4 of this Agreement, the time period becomes sixty (60)
days following the 180-day lock-up period provided for in Section 1.4) exercise
an Option to the extent the right to exercise had accrued prior to termination;
provided, however that the Company may retain the shares of Stock issuable upon
exercise of an Option pursuant to this paragraph (iv) for a period of sixty (60)
days from exercise and, if the Grantee becomes employed or otherwise associated
with a competitor or enters into an agreement to do so during
<PAGE>   3
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.4


that sixty (60) day period, either as a director, officer, employee, agent,
representative or otherwise, then the Company may retain and cancel those
shares, refund the exercise price paid by the Grantee and thereafter all rights
of the Grantee in the Stock shall immediately cease; and provided, further, that
if the Grantee dies prior to the end of the sixty (60) day period after
termination of employment, his or her estate (as defined above) shall have the
right, subject to the procedures set forth above, to exercise the Option within
one year following the termination.

         1.5. Transferability. No Option shall be transferable except by will or
the laws of descent and distribution. An Option shall be exercisable during the
Grantee's lifetime only by the Grantee.

         1.6. Duration of Options. Options may be exercised, upon satisfaction
of the conditions specified in Section 1.3, for terms of up to but not exceeding
ten (10) years from the date of grant.

         1.7. Additional Options. In the event that the Company grants
additional options to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock to the Grantee,
unless agreed to the contrary between the Parties, the additional options will
be subject to the terms of this Agreement.


SECTION II. THE CLOSING

          2.1. Closing Date. Any closing hereunder shall take place on the date
specified by the Grantee in its Stock Exercise Notice pursuant to Section 1 at
10:00 A.M., at the offices of the Company, or at such other time and place as
the parties hereto may agree (the "Closing Date"). On the Closing Date, the
Company will deliver to the Grantee a certificate or certificates, duly
endorsed, representing the Shares and the Grantee will purchase such Shares from
the Company at the price per Share equal to the Exercise Price. In the event
that any federal, state, or local income taxes, employment taxes, Federal
Insurance Contribution Act ("FICA") withholdings or other amounts are required
by applicable law or governmental regulation to be withheld from the grantee in
connection with the exercise, these amounts must be remitted to the Company in
addition to the Exercise Price. Any payment made by the Grantee to the Company
pursuant to this Agreement shall be made by certified or official bank check.

         2.2. Legends. The certificates representing the Shares may bear an
appropriate legend relating to the fact that such Shares have not been
registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act").


SECTION III. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE GRANTEE

         3.1. Investment Representation. The Grantee represents and warrants to
the Company that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it
exercises the Option, will be
<PAGE>   4
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.4


acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for its own account and
not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner which would be in
violation of the Act.

         3.2. Restricted Securities. The Grantee represents and warrants to the
Company that the Grantee is an Accredited Investor as defined in Rule 501
promulgated under the Act. The Grantee understands that, if and when it
exercises the Option, the Grantee will be acquiring restricted securities under
applicable federal securities laws, and may dispose of such Shares only pursuant
to an effective registration statement under the Act or an exemption from
registration if available. The Grantee represents and warrants to the Company
that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises the
Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for its
own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner which
would be in violation of the Act.


SECTION IV. RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL

         If, at any time after the Closing Date, the Grantee proposes to sell
all or any part of the Shares in a transaction not required to be registered
under the Act, it shall give the Company the opportunity, in the following
manner, to purchase such Shares:

         4.1. Notice. The Grantee shall give notice to the Company in writing of
its intent to sell Shares (a "Disposition Notice"), specifying the number of
Shares to be sold, the price and the material terms of any agreement relating
thereto. The Disposition Notice may be given at any time, including prior to the
giving of any Stock Exercise Notice.

         4.2. Right to Purchase. The Company or its designee shall have the
right, exercisable by written notice given to the Grantee within five (5) days
after receipt of a Disposition Notice, to purchase all, but not less than all,
of the Shares specified in the Disposition Notice at the price set forth in the
Disposition Notice.

         4.3. Closing. If the Company exercises its right of first refusal
hereunder, the closing of the purchase of the Shares with respect to which such
right has been exercised shall take place within five (5) days after the notice
of such exercise; provided, however, that at any time prior to the closing of
the purchase of Shares hereunder, the Grantee may determine not to sell the
Shares and revoke the Disposition Notice and, by so doing, cancel the Company's
right of first refusal with respect thereto.

         4.4. Right to Sell. If the Company does not exercise its right of first
refusal hereunder within the time specified for such exercise, the Grantee shall
be free for thirty (30) days following the expiration of such time for exercise
to sell or enter into an agreement to sell the Shares specified in the
Disposition Notice, at the price specified in the Disposition Notice or any
price in excess thereof and otherwise on substantially the same terms set forth
in the Disposition Notice; provided, that if such sale is not consummated within
such 30-day period, then the provisions of this Section 4 will again apply to
the sale of such Shares.

SECTION V. INFORMATION

         Upon written request by the Grantee, the Company shall furnish to the
Grantee such information regarding the Company and its operation as shall be
reasonably necessary to enable the Grantee to make a decision as to whether or
not to exercise the Option; provided, however, that in no event shall the
Company be required to furnish information which constitutes trade secrets or
other proprietary information or the furnishing of which would be unduly
burdensome, financially or otherwise, to the Company.


SECTION VI. ADJUSTMENT FOR CHANGES IN THE STOCK

         6.1. Stock Reclassification. In the event the shares of Stock, as
presently constituted, shall be changed into or exchanged for a different number
or kind of shares or other securities of the Company (whether by reason of
merger, consolidation, recapitalization, reclassification, split, reverse split,
combination of shares or otherwise), then there shall be substituted for or
added to each share of Stock theretofore or thereafter subject to an Option the
number and kind of shares of capital stock or other securities into, which each
outstanding share of Stock shall be changed, or for which each such share shall
be exchanged, or to which each such share shall be entitled, as the case may be.
The price and other terms of outstanding Options shall also be appropriately
amended to reflect the foregoing events. In the event there shall be any other
change in the number or kind of outstanding shares of the Stock, or of any
capital stock or other securities into which the Stock shall have been changed
or for which it shall have been exchanged, if the Board of Directors shall, in
its sole discretion, determine that the change equitably requires an adjustment
in any Option theretofore granted, then adjustments shall be made in accordance
with its determination.

         6.2. Fractional Shares. Fractional shares resulting from any adjustment
in Options pursuant to this Section 6 may be settled in cash or otherwise as the
Board of Directors shall determine.

         6.3. Notice. Notice of any adjustment shall be given by the Company to
the Grantee in accordance with the requirements for providing notice to a Party
set forth in Section 7.7.

         6.4. Sale of the Assets of the Company, etc. Notwithstanding Section
6.1, the Board of Directors shall have the power, in the event of the
disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or the
dissolution of the Company, or the merger or consolidation of the Company, or
the making of a tender offer to purchase all or a substantial portion of
outstanding Stock of the Company, to amend this Agreement (upon such conditions
as it shall deem fit) to (i) permit the exercise of the Options described herein
prior to the effective date of the transaction and to terminate all unexercised
Options as of that date, or (ii) require the forfeiture of all Options, provided
the Company pays to the Grantee the excess of the fair market value of the
<PAGE>   6
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.4


Stock subject to the Option (as determined by the Board of Directors if the
Company's common stock is not then freely tradable) over the exercise price of
the Option.


SECTION VII. PUBLIC OFFERING OF COMPANY'S COMMON STOCK

         7.1. Lock-Up Agreement. Grantee, if requested by the Company and the
lead underwriter of any public offering of the common stock or other securities
of the Company (the "Lead Underwriter"), hereby irrevocably agrees not to sell,
contract to sell, grant any option to purchase, transfer the economic risk of
ownership in, make any short sale of, pledge or otherwise transfer or dispose of
any interest in any common stock or any securities convertible into or
exchangeable or exercisable for or any other rights to purchase or acquire
common stock (except common stock included in such public offering or acquired
on the public market after such offering) during the 180-day period following
the effective date of a registration statement of the Company filed under the
Securities Act, or such shorter period of time as the Lead Underwriter shall
specify. Grantee further agrees to sign such documents as may be requested by
the Lead Underwriter to effect the foregoing and agrees that the Company may
impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to such common stock subject
until the end of such period. The Company and Grantee acknowledge that each Lead
Underwriter of a public offering of the Company's stock, during the period of
such offering and for the 180-day period thereafter, is an intended beneficiary
of this Section 7.

         7.2. No Amendment or Waiver. During the period from identification as a
Lead Underwriter in connection with any public offering of the Company's common
stock until the earlier of (i) the expiration of the lock-up period specified in
Section 7.1 in connection with such offering or (ii) the abandonment of such
offering by the Company and the Lead Underwriter, the provisions of the Section
7 may not be amended or waived except with the consent of the Lead Underwriter.


SECTION VIII. MISCELLANEOUS

         8.1. No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement shall not confer any
rights of remedies upon any Person other than the Parties and their respective
successors and permitted assigns.

         8.2. Default. In the event a Party fails to comply with the terms of

injunctive relief, as a matter of right, in any court of competent jurisdiction;

or at law or equity.

         8.3. Waivers. The waiver by the undersigned of any of the provisions of
this Agreement shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent
breach.

     1.1. Option. The Company hereby grants, as of the date of this Agreement
and future dates listed on Schedule A, to the Grantee an irrevocable option (the
"Option") to purchase the number of shares of Class A Common Stock (the
"Shares") listed on the attached Schedule A at the purchase price listed on
Schedule A (the "Purchase Price"). These options are not intended to satisfy the
requirements of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended nor
to qualify as an incentive stock option.

     1.2. Exercise of Option. In the event the Grantee wishes to exercise the
Option, in accordance with the restrictions specified below, the Grantee shall
send a written notice to the Company (the "Stock Exercise Notice") specifying a
date for the closing of such purchase.

     1.3 Vesting. The right to exercise an Option is limited as hereinafter
provided:

          (c)  An Option may be exercised as hereinafter provided only to the
               extent that the Option has become vested as provided herein.

          (d)  The Options shall vest upon the date of grant, as is listed on
               Schedule A.

     1.4. Termination of Employment. Upon the termination of the Grantee's
employment, the right to exercise an Option held by the Grantee shall be as
follows:

          Grantee's rights hereunder are not contingent upon his or her
continued employment; provided, however, if the Grantee's employment with the
Company is terminated by reason of death, the Board or Committee, in its sole
discretion, may require that the estate of a deceased Grantee agree to be bound
by all of the terms and conditions of the Plan.

the parties hereto may agree (the "Closing Date"). On the Closing Date, the
Company will deliver to the Grantee a certificate or certificates, duly
endorsed, representing the Shares and the Grantee will purchase such Shares from

addition to the Exercise Price. Any payment made by the Grantee to the Company
pursuant to this Agreement shall be made by certified or official bank check.


     2.2. Legends. The certificates representing the Shares may bear an
appropriate legend relating to the fact that such Shares have not been
registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act").


SECTION III. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE GRANTEE

Company that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises

which would be in violation of the Act.

Company that the Grantee is an Accredited Investor as defined in Rule 501
promulgated under the Act. The Grantee understands that, if and when it

<PAGE>   3
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.5


registration if available. The Grantee represents and warrants to the Company
that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises the
Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for its
own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner which
would be in violation of the Act.


SECTION IV. RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL

     If, at any time after the Closing Date, the Grantee proposes to sell all or
any part of the Shares in a transaction not required to be registered under the
Act, it shall give the Company the opportunity, in the following manner, to
purchase such Shares:

     4.1. Notice. The Grantee shall give notice to the Company in writing of its
intent to sell Shares (a "Disposition Notice"), specifying the number of Shares
to be sold, the price and the material terms of any agreement relating thereto.
The Disposition Notice may be given at any time, including prior to the giving
of any Stock Exercise Notice.

     4.2. Right to Purchase. The Company or its designee shall have the right,
exercisable by written notice given to the Grantee within five (5) days after
receipt of a Disposition Notice, to purchase all, but not less than all, of the
Shares specified in the Disposition Notice at the price set forth in the
Disposition Notice.

     4.3. Closing. If the Company exercises its right of first refusal
hereunder, the closing of the purchase of the Shares with respect to which such
right has been exercised shall take place within five (5) days after the notice
of such exercise; provided, however, that at any time prior to the closing of
the purchase of Shares hereunder, the Grantee may determine not to sell the
Shares and revoke the Disposition Notice and, by so doing, cancel the Company's
right of first refusal with respect thereto.

     4.4. Right to Sell. If the Company does not exercise its right of first
refusal hereunder within the time specified for such exercise, the Grantee shall
be free for thirty (30) days following the expiration of such time for exercise
to sell or enter into an agreement to sell the Shares specified in the
Disposition Notice, at the price specified in the Disposition Notice or any
price in excess thereof and otherwise on substantially the same terms set forth
in the Disposition Notice; provided, that if such sale is not consummated within
such 30-day period, then the provisions of this Section 4 will again apply to
the sale of such Shares.


SECTION V. INFORMATION

     Upon written request by the Grantee, the Company shall furnish to the
Grantee such information regarding the Company and its operation as shall be
reasonably necessary to enable the Grantee to make a decision as to whether or
not to exercise the Option; provided, however, that in no event shall the
Company be required to furnish information which constitutes trade

                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.5


secrets or other proprietary information or the furnishing of which would be
unduly burdensome, financially or otherwise, to the Company.


SECTION VI. ADJUSTMENT FOR CHANGES IN THE STOCK

     6.1. Stock Reclassification. In the event the shares of Stock, as presently
constituted, shall be changed into or exchanged for a different number or kind
of shares or other securities of the Company (whether by reason of merger,
consolidation, recapitalization, reclassification, split, reverse split,
combination of shares or otherwise), then there shall be substituted for or
added to each share of Stock theretofore or thereafter subject to an Option the
number and kind of shares of capital stock or other securities into, which each
outstanding share of Stock shall be changed, or for which each such share shall
be exchanged, or to which each such share shall be entitled, as the case may be.
The price and other terms of outstanding Options shall also be appropriately
amended to reflect the foregoing events. In the event there shall be any other
change in the number or kind of outstanding shares of the Stock, or of any
capital stock or other securities into which the Stock shall have been changed
or for which it shall have been exchanged, if the Board of Directors shall, in
its sole discretion, determine that the change equitably requires an adjustment
in any Option theretofore granted, then adjustments shall be made in accordance
with its determination.

     6.2. Fractional Shares. Fractional shares resulting from any adjustment in
Options pursuant to this Section 6 may be settled in cash or otherwise as the
Board of Directors shall determine.

     6.3. Notice. Notice of any adjustment shall be given by the Company to the
Grantee in accordance with the requirements for providing notice to a Party set
forth in Section 7.7.

     6.4. Sale of the Assets of the Company, etc. Notwithstanding Section 6.1,
the Board of Directors shall have the power, in the event of the disposition of
all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or the dissolution of the
Company, or the merger or consolidation of the Company, or the making of a
tender offer to purchase all or a substantial portion of outstanding Stock of
the Company, to amend this Agreement (upon such conditions as it shall deem fit)
to (i) permit the exercise of the Options described herein prior to the
effective date of the transaction and to terminate all unexercised Options as of
that date, or (ii) require the forfeiture of all Options, provided the Company
pays to the Grantee the excess of the fair market value of the Stock subject to
the Option (as determined by the Board of Directors if the Company's common
stock is not then freely tradable) over the exercise price of the Option.


SECTION VII. PUBLIC OFFERING OF COMPANY'S COMMON STOCK

     7.1. Lock-Up Agreement. Grantee, if requested by the Company and the lead
underwriter of any public offering of the common stock or other securities of
the Company (the "Lead Underwriter"), hereby irrevocably agrees not to sell,
contract to sell, grant any option to

                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.5


purchase, transfer the economic risk of ownership in, make any short sale of,
pledge or otherwise transfer or dispose of any interest in any common stock or
any securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for or any other
rights to purchase or acquire common stock (except common stock included in such
public offering or acquired on the public market after such offering) during the
180-day period following the effective date of a registration statement of the
Company filed under the Securities Act, or such shorter period of time as the
Lead Underwriter shall specify. Grantee further agrees to sign such documents as
may be requested by the Lead Underwriter to effect the foregoing and agrees that
the Company may impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to such common
stock subject until the end of such period. The Company and Grantee acknowledge
that each Lead Underwriter of a public offering of the Company's stock, during
the period of such offering and for the 180-day period thereafter, is an
intended beneficiary of this Section 7.

     7.2. No Amendment or Waiver. During the period from identification as a
Lead Underwriter in connection with any public offering of the Company's common
stock until the earlier of (i) the expiration of the lock-up period specified in
Section 7.1 in connection with such offering or (ii) the abandonment of such
offering by the Company and the Lead Underwriter, the provisions of the Section
7 may not be amended or waived except with the consent of the Lead Underwriter.

rights of remedies upon any Person other than the Parties and their respective
successors and permitted assigns.

other relief or remedy that may be available pursuant to this Agreement or at
law or equity.

without the prior written consent of the Company. This Agreement shall be
binding upon and inure to

                             STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT


     AGREEMENT, dated as of June 30, 1998, between iName, Inc. (the "Company"),
a Delaware corporation doing business at 11 Broadway, Suite 660, New York, New
York and Lon Otremba (the "Grantee") residing at ______________________________
______________________________________. The Company and the Grantee are
collectively referred to as the "Parties."

     WHEREAS, the Grantee is employed by the Company in the capacity as Chief
Operating Officer, and in partial consideration for the Grantee's services, the
Company desires to award stock options to the Grantee in accordance with the
terms of this Agreement;

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and the mutual covenants
and agreements set forth herein, the Parties hereto agree as follows:


SECTION I. OPTION TO PURCHASE SHARES

     1.1. Option. The Company hereby grants, as of the date of this Agreement,
to the Grantee an irrevocable option (the "Option") to purchase the number of
shares of Class A Common Stock (the "Shares") listed on the attached Schedule A
at the purchase price listed on Schedule A (the "Purchase Price"). This option
is not intended to satisfy the requirements of Section 422 of the Internal
Revenue Code of 1986, as amended nor to qualify as an incentive stock option.

     1.2. Exercise of Option. In the event the Grantee wishes to exercise the
Option, in accordance with the restrictions specified below, the Grantee shall
send a written notice to the Company (the "Stock Exercise Notice") specifying a
date for the closing of such purchase.

     1.3. Vesting. The right to exercise an Option is limited as hereinafter
provided:

          (a)  An Option may be exercised as hereinafter provided only to the
               extent that the Option has become vested as provided herein.

          (b)  The Options shall vest over a three (3) year period at the rate
               of one-twelfth per each three-month period of a year with
               commencing dates on January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 (a
               "Calendar Quarter"), beginning on the first day of a Calendar
               Quarter subsequent to the date of this Agreement.

          (c)  (i) An Option granted after the first day of a Calendar Quarter
               but prior to the fifteenth day of the second month of the
               Calendar Quarter shall not begin to vest until the last day of
               the subsequent Calendar Quarter (the "Initial Vesting Date"). For
               such Options, one-half of the Option shall vest on the Initial
               Vesting Date, and an additional one-quarter will vest for
<PAGE>   2
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.6


               each additional Calendar Quarter until the Option is fully
               vested. (ii) Options granted after the fifteenth day of the
               second month of a Calendar Quarter shall not begin to vest until
               the last day of the subsequent Calendar Quarter. For such
               Options, one-quarter of the Option will vest on the Initial
               Vesting Date, and an additional one-quarter will vest for each
               additional Calendar Quarter until the Option is fully vested.

     1.4. Termination of Employment. Upon the termination of the Grantee's
employment, the right to exercise an Option held by the Grantee shall be as
follows:

          (a) Disability. If the Grantee's employment is terminated because of
permanent disability as defined in Code Section 22(e)(3), the Grantee may,
within one year following termination, exercise the Option with respect to all
or part of the shares subject thereto in which the right to purchase shares had
accrued or vested at the time of termination of employment.

          (b) Death. If a Grantee's employment is terminated by death, his or
her estate shall have the right for a period of one year following the date of
death to exercise the Option to the extent that the right to exercise had
accrued or vested prior to the date of death. A Grantee's "estate" shall mean
his or her legal representative or any person who acquires the right to exercise
an Option by reason of the Grantee's death. The Board or Committee may in its
discretion require the estate of the Grantee to supply the Board or Committee
with written notice of the Grantee's death and a copy of the will or other
documents deemed necessary to establish the validity of the transfer of an
Option. The Board or Committee may also require that the estate of a deceased
Grantee agree to be bound by all of the terms and conditions of the Plan.

          (c) Cause and Competition. If the employment of Grantee is terminated
for "Cause" (as defined below) or the Grantee terminates his or her employment
and commences working for a competitor (as defined below), the Grantee's rights
under any then outstanding Option, whether or not vested, shall terminate at the
time of termination of employment. "Cause" shall mean any willful or intentional
act having the effect of injuring the reputation, business or business
relationship of the Company. "Competitor" shall mean any person or entity
engaged in a business competitive (in the good faith judgment of the Board or
Committee) with that of the Company.

          (d) Other Reason. In the case of a Grantee whose employment is
terminated for any reason other than those provided above, the Grantee may,
within sixty (60) days following the termination (or if the Board has notified
the Grantee of its intent to register an offering of the Company's securities as
described in Section 1.4 of this Agreement, the time period becomes sixty (60)
days following the 180-day lock-up period provided for in Section 1.4) exercise
an Option to the extent the right to exercise had accrued prior to termination;
provided, however that the Company may retain the shares of Stock issuable upon
exercise of an Option pursuant to this paragraph (iv) for a period of sixty (60)
days from exercise and, if the Grantee becomes employed or otherwise associated
with a competitor or enters into an agreement to do so during that sixty (60)
day period, either as a director, officer, employee, agent, representative or
otherwise, then the Company may retain and cancel those shares, refund the
exercise price paid
<PAGE>   3
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.6


by the Grantee and thereafter all rights of the Grantee in the Stock shall
immediately cease; and provided, further, that if the Grantee dies prior to the
end of the sixty (60) day period after termination of employment, his or her
estate (as defined above) shall have the right, subject to the procedures set
forth above, to exercise the Option within one year following the termination.

     1.5. Transferability. No Option shall be transferable except by will or the
laws of descent and distribution. An Option shall be exercisable during the
Grantee's lifetime only by the Grantee.

     1.6. Duration of Options. Options may be exercised, upon satisfaction of
the conditions specified in Section 1.3, for terms of up to but not exceeding
ten (10) years from the date of grant.

     1.7. Additional Options. In the event that the Company grants additional
options to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock to the Grantee, unless agreed
to the contrary between the Parties, the additional options will be subject to
the terms of this Agreement.


SECTION II. THE CLOSING

     2.1. Closing Date. Any closing hereunder shall take place on the date
specified by the Grantee in its Stock Exercise Notice pursuant to Section 1 at
10:00 A.M., at the offices of the Company, or at such other time and place as
the parties hereto may agree (the "Closing Date"). On the Closing Date, the
Company will deliver to the Grantee a certificate or certificates, duly
endorsed, representing the Shares and the Grantee will purchase such Shares from
the Company at the price per Share equal to the Exercise Price. In the event
that any federal, state, or local income taxes, employment taxes, Federal
Insurance Contribution Act ("FICA") withholdings or other amounts are required
by applicable law or governmental regulation to be withheld from the grantee in
connection with the exercise, these amounts must be remitted to the Company in
addition to the Exercise Price. Any payment made by the Grantee to the Company
pursuant to this Agreement shall be made by certified or official bank check.


     2.2. Legends. The certificates representing the Shares may bear an
appropriate legend relating to the fact that such Shares have not been
registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act").


SECTION III. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE GRANTEE

     3.1. Investment Representation. The Grantee represents and warrants to the
Company that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises
the Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for
its own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner
which would be in violation of the Act.
<PAGE>   4
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.6


     3.2. Restricted Securities. The Grantee represents and warrants to the
Company that the Grantee is an Accredited Investor as defined in Rule 501
promulgated under the Act. The Grantee understands that, if and when it
exercises the Option, the Grantee will be acquiring restricted securities under
applicable federal securities laws, and may dispose of such Shares only pursuant
to an effective registration statement under the Act or an exemption from
registration if available. The Grantee represents and warrants to the Company
that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises the
Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for its
own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner which
would be in violation of the Act.


SECTION IV. RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL

     If, at any time after the Closing Date, the Grantee proposes to sell all or
any part of the Shares in a transaction not required to be registered under the
Act, it shall give the Company the opportunity, in the following manner, to
purchase such Shares:

     4.1. Notice. The Grantee shall give notice to the Company in writing of its
intent to sell Shares (a "Disposition Notice"), specifying the number of Shares
to be sold, the price and the material terms of any agreement relating thereto.
The Disposition Notice may be given at any time, including prior to the giving
of any Stock Exercise Notice.

     4.2. Right to Purchase. The Company or its designee shall have the right,
exercisable by written notice given to the Grantee within five (5) days after
receipt of a Disposition Notice, to purchase all, but not less than all, of the
Shares specified in the Disposition Notice at the price set forth in the
Disposition Notice.

     4.3. Closing. If the Company exercises its right of first refusal
hereunder, the closing of the purchase of the Shares with respect to which such
right has been exercised shall take place within five (5) days after the notice
of such exercise; provided, however, that at any time prior to the closing of
the purchase of Shares hereunder, the Grantee may determine not to sell the
Shares and revoke the Disposition Notice and, by so doing, cancel the Company's
right of first refusal with respect thereto.

     4.4. Right to Sell. If the Company does not exercise its right of first
refusal hereunder within the time specified for such exercise, the Grantee shall
be free for thirty (30) days following the expiration of such time for exercise
to sell or enter into an agreement to sell the Shares specified in the
Disposition Notice, at the price specified in the Disposition Notice or any
price in excess thereof and otherwise on substantially the same terms set forth
in the Disposition Notice; provided, that if such sale is not consummated within
such 30-day period, then the provisions of this Section 4 will again apply to
the sale of such Shares.

                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.6


SECTION V. INFORMATION

     Upon written request by the Grantee, the Company shall furnish to the
Grantee such information regarding the Company and its operation as shall be
reasonably necessary to enable the Grantee to make a decision as to whether or
not to exercise the Option; provided, however, that in no event shall the
Company be required to furnish information which constitutes trade secrets or
other proprietary information or the furnishing of which would be unduly
burdensome, financially or otherwise, to the Company.


SECTION VI. ADJUSTMENT FOR CHANGES IN THE STOCK

     6.1. Stock Reclassification. In the event the shares of Stock, as presently
constituted, shall be changed into or exchanged for a different number or kind
of shares or other securities of the Company (whether by reason of merger,
consolidation, recapitalization, reclassification, split, reverse split,
combination of shares or otherwise), then there shall be substituted for or
added to each share of Stock theretofore or thereafter subject to an Option the
number and kind of shares of capital stock or other securities into, which each
outstanding share of Stock shall be changed, or for which each such share shall
be exchanged, or to which each such share shall be entitled, as the case may be.
The price and other terms of outstanding Options shall also be appropriately
amended to reflect the foregoing events. In the event there shall be any other
change in the number or kind of outstanding shares of the Stock, or of any
capital stock or other securities into which the Stock shall have been changed
or for which it shall have been exchanged, if the Board of Directors shall, in
its sole discretion, determine that the change equitably requires an adjustment
in any Option theretofore granted, then adjustments shall be made in accordance
with its determination.

     6.2. Fractional Shares. Fractional shares resulting from any adjustment in
Options pursuant to this Section 6 may be settled in cash or otherwise as the
Board of Directors shall determine.

     6.3. Notice. Notice of any adjustment shall be given by the Company to the
Grantee in accordance with the requirements for providing notice to a Party set
forth in Section 7.7.

     6.4. Sale of the Assets of the Company, etc. Notwithstanding Section 6.1,
the Board of Directors shall have the power, in the event of the disposition of
all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or the dissolution of the
Company, or the merger or consolidation of the Company, or the making of a
tender offer to purchase all or a substantial portion of outstanding Stock of
the Company, to amend this Agreement (upon such conditions as it shall deem fit)
to (i) permit the exercise of the Options described herein prior to the
effective date of the transaction and to terminate all unexercised Options as of
that date, or (ii) require the forfeiture of all Options, provided the Company
pays to the Grantee the excess of the fair market value of the Stock subject to
the Option (as determined by the Board of Directors if the Company's common
stock is not then freely tradable) over the exercise price of the Option.

SECTION VII. PUBLIC OFFERING OF COMPANY'S COMMON STOCK

     7.1. Lock-Up Agreement. Grantee, if requested by the Company and the lead
underwriter of any public offering of the common stock or other securities of
the Company (the "Lead Underwriter"), hereby irrevocably agrees not to sell,
contract to sell, grant any option to purchase, transfer the economic risk of
ownership in, make any short sale of, pledge or otherwise transfer or dispose of
any interest in any common stock or any securities convertible into or
exchangeable or exercisable for or any other rights to purchase or acquire
common stock (except common stock included in such public offering or acquired
on the public market after such offering) during the 180-day period following
the effective date of a registration statement of the Company filed under the
Securities Act, or such shorter period of time as the Lead Underwriter shall
specify. Grantee further agrees to sign such documents as may be requested by
the Lead Underwriter to effect the foregoing and agrees that the Company may
impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to such common stock subject
until the end of such period. The Company and Grantee acknowledge that each Lead
Underwriter of a public offering of the Company's stock, during the period of
such offering and for the 180-day period thereafter, is an intended beneficiary
of this Section 7.

     7.2. No Amendment or Waiver. During the period from identification as a
Lead Underwriter in connection with any public offering of the Company's common
stock until the earlier of (i) the expiration of the lock-up period specified in
Section 7.1 in connection with such offering or (ii) the abandonment of such
offering by the Company and the Lead Underwriter, the provisions of the Section
7 may not be amended or waived except with the consent of the Lead Underwriter.


SECTION VIII. TAXES

     The amount to be paid by the Grantee upon exercise of any Option granted by
this Agreement shall be the full purchase price thereof provided in the Option,
together with the amount of federal, state, and local income and FICA taxes
required to be withheld by the Company. The Grantee may elect to pay his or her
federal, state, or local income and FICA withholding tax by having the Company
withhold shares of Company common stock having a value equal to the amount
required to be withheld. The value of the shares to be withheld is deemed to
equal the fair market value of the shares on the day the option is exercised (as
determined by the Board of Directors if the Company's common stock is not then
freely tradable). An election by a Grantee to have shares withheld for this
purpose will be subject to the following restrictions:

          (a)  if the Grantee has received additional Option grants in
               accordance with this Agreement, a separate election must be made
               for each grant;

          (b)  the election must be made prior to the day the Option is
               exercised;

          (c)  the election will be irrevocable;

          (d)  the election will be subject to the disapproval of the Board of
               Directors;

          (e)  the election may not be made within six months following the
               grant of the Option; and

          (f)  the election must be made either six months prior to the day the
               Option is exercised or ten (10) days beginning on the third day
               following the release of the Company's quarterly or annual
               summary statement of sales and earnings.

other relief or remedy that may be available pursuant to this Agreement or at

                    Optionee's employment with the Company, with full vesting in
                    Compensation Stock Options occurring on the last day of the

                    with the Company. If Optionee terminates his employment
<PAGE>   2
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.7


                    with the Company before his Compensation Stock Options are
                    fully vested hereunder and prior to the last day of a two
                    week period, then his vested interest in Compensation Stock

                    (ii). Bonus Stock Options shall vest at the rate of 7.69%
                    for each quarterly period of Optionee's employment with the

                    last day of quarterly period, Optionee's vested interest in
                    bonus Stock Options shall be prorated to the date of
                    termination.

               1.03. Procedures for Exercise. A Stock Option granted hereunder
               shall be exercised by delivery to the Secretary or any Assistant
               Secretary of the Company of a written notice of election to
               exercise, signed by the Optionee or by his legal representative,
               specifying the number of shares with respect to which the Stock
               Option is being exercised and specifying a date, which shall be a
               business day not less than seven (7) nor more than fifteen (15)
               days after delivery of such notice to the company, on which date
               the Company shall deliver, or cause to be delivered to the
               Optionee, or to his legal representative, a certificate or
               certificates for the number of shares specified against receipt
               of the entire purchase price therefor. The notice shall be
               accompanied by full payment of the exercise price for the Shares.

               1.04. Registration of Shares and Lock-Up Period. In the event the
               Company registers the offering of any securities of the Company
               under the Securities Exchange Act of 1933 (the "Act"), the
               Grantee, upon notice from the Company, shall not exercise any
               Options granted under this Agreement, or sell or otherwise
               transfer any securities of the Company obtained in connection
               with this Agreement, during the 180 day-period following the
               effective date of a registration statement filed under the Act;
               provided, however, that such registration shall only apply to
               public offerings which include securities to be sold on behalf of
               the Company to the public in an underwritten public offering
               under
<PAGE>   3
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.7


               the Act. The Company may impose stop-transfer instructions with
               respect to securities subject to the foregoing restrictions until
               the end of such 180-day period.


SECTION 2.  RESERVATION OF SHARES AND CHANGES IN CAPITALIZATION.


               2.01. Reservation of Shares. The Company hereby agrees to reserve
               in advance sufficient shares of its authorized but unissued Stock
               or Treasury Stock for issuance pursuant to the exercise of vested
               Stock Options hereunder. The aggregate number and types of shares
               reserved hereunder shall be appropriately adjusted in the event
               of a reorganization, recapitalization, stock split, stock
               dividend, combination of shares, merger, consolidation, rights
               offering or any other similar change in capitalization in order
               to prevent dilution as provided in Section 2.02.

               2.02. Dilution and Other Changes. (a). The Company shall adjust
               the number of shares and types of securities subject to Stock
               Options and the exercise price of the Stock Options as may be
               appropriate to prevent the dilution of Optionee's rights in the
               event of a reorganization, recapitalization, stock split, reverse
               stock split, stock dividend, exchange or combination of shares
               merger, consolidation, rights offering or any other similar
               change in capitalization.

               (b). If, at any time prior to the expiration or complete exercise
               of the Stock Options, the Company shall be consolidated with, or
               merged into, any other corporation, lawful provision shall be
               made as part of the terms of each such consolidation or merger,
               for an appropriate adjustment, as determined by an independent
               appraiser, in the number, kind and/or price of shares for which
               the Stock Options may be exercised hereunder to provide Optionee
               with substantially the same relative rights before and after such
               merger or consolidation to the extent practical; provided,
               however, that the Board of Directors of the company may require
               that the exercise of vested Stock Options must be made o or
               within a specified time period after the effective date of the
               consolidation or merger of the company.

SECTION 3. GENERAL.

               3.01. Notices. Every direction, revocation or notice authorized
               or required hereunder shall be deemed delivered to the Company
               (1) on the date it is personally delivered to the secretary of

      1.2. Exercise of Option. In the event the Grantee wishes to exercise the
Option, in accordance with the restrictions specified below, the Grantee shall
send a written notice to the Company (the "Stock Exercise Notice") specifying a
date for the closing of such purchase.

      1.3. Vesting. The right to exercise an Option is limited as hereinafter
provided:

           (a)   An Option may be exercised as hereinafter provided only to the
                 extent that the Option has become vested as provided herein.

           (b)   The Options shall vest over a three (3) year period at the rate
                 of one-twelfth per each three-month period of a year with
                 commencing dates on January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 (a
                 "Calendar Quarter"), beginning on the first day of a Calendar
                 Quarter subsequent to the date of this Agreement.

           (c)   (i) An Option granted after the first day of a Calendar Quarter
                 but prior to the fifteenth day of the second month of the
                 Calendar Quarter shall not begin to vest until the last day of
                 the subsequent Calendar Quarter (the "Initial Vesting Date").
                 For such Options, one-half of the Option shall
<PAGE>   2
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.8


                 vest on the Initial Vesting Date, and an additional one-quarter
                 will vest for each additional Calendar Quarter until the Option
                 is fully vested. (ii) Options granted after the fifteenth day
                 of the second month of a Calendar Quarter shall not begin to
                 vest until the last day of the subsequent Calendar Quarter. For
                 such Options, one-quarter of the Option will vest on the
                 Initial Vesting Date, and an additional one-quarter will vest
                 for each additional Calendar Quarter until the Option is fully
                 vested.

      1.4. Termination of Employment. Upon the termination of the Grantee's
employment, the right to exercise an Option held by the Grantee shall be as
follows:

                  (a) Disability. If the Grantee's employment is terminated
because of permanent disability as defined in Code Section 22(e)(3), the Grantee
may, within one year following termination, exercise the Option with respect to
all or part of the shares subject thereto in which the right to purchase shares
had accrued or vested at the time of termination of employment.

                  (b) Death. If a Grantee's employment is terminated by death,
his or her estate shall have the right for a period of one year following the
date of death to exercise the Option to the extent that the right to exercise
had accrued or vested prior to the date of death. A Grantee's "estate" shall
mean his or her legal representative or any person who acquires the right to
exercise an Option by reason of the Grantee's death. The Board or Committee may
in its discretion require the estate of the Grantee to supply the Board or
Committee with written notice of the Grantee's death and a copy of the will or
other documents deemed necessary to establish the validity of the transfer of an
Option. The Board or Committee may also require that the estate of a deceased
Grantee agree to be bound by all of the terms and conditions of the Plan.

            (c) Cause and Competition. If the employment of Grantee is
terminated for "Cause" (as defined below) or the Grantee terminates his or her
employment and commences working for a competitor (as defined below), the
Grantee's rights under any then outstanding Option, whether or not vested, shall
terminate at the time of termination of employment. "Cause" shall mean any
willful or intentional act having the effect of injuring the reputation,
business or business relationship of the Company. "Competitor" shall mean any
person or entity engaged in a business competitive (in the good faith judgment
of the Board or Committee) with that of the Company.

                  (d) Other Reason. In the case of a Grantee whose employment is
terminated for any reason other than those provided above, the Grantee may,
within sixty (60) days following the termination (or if the Board has notified
the Grantee of its intent to register an offering of the Company's securities as
described in Section 1.4 of this Agreement, the time period becomes sixty (60)
days following the 180-day lock-up period provided for in Section 1.4) exercise
an Option to the extent the right to exercise had accrued prior to termination;
provided, however that the Company may retain the shares of Stock issuable upon
exercise of an Option pursuant to this paragraph (iv) for a period of sixty (60)
days from exercise and, if the Grantee becomes employed or otherwise associated
with a competitor or enters into an agreement to do so during that sixty (60)
day period, either as a director, officer, employee, agent, representative or
<PAGE>   3
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.8


otherwise, then the Company may retain and cancel those shares, refund the
exercise price paid by the Grantee and thereafter all rights of the Grantee in
the Stock shall immediately cease; and provided, further, that if the Grantee
dies prior to the end of the sixty (60) day period after termination of
employment, his or her estate (as defined above) shall have the right, subject
to the procedures set forth above, to exercise the Option within one year
following the termination.

      1.5. Transferability. No Option shall be transferable except by will or
the laws of descent and distribution. An Option shall be exercisable during the
Grantee's lifetime only by the Grantee.

      1.6. Duration of Options. Options may be exercised, upon satisfaction of
the conditions specified in Section 1.3, for terms of up to but not exceeding
ten (10) years from the date of grant.

      1.7. Additional Options. In the event that the Company grants additional
options to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock to the Grantee, unless agreed
to the contrary between the Parties, the additional options will be subject to
the terms of this Agreement.


SECTION II.       THE CLOSING

       2.1. Closing Date. Any closing hereunder shall take place on the date
specified by the Grantee in its Stock Exercise Notice pursuant to Section 1 at
10:00 A.M., at the offices of the Company, or at such other time and place as
the parties hereto may agree (the "Closing Date"). On the Closing Date, the
Company will deliver to the Grantee a certificate or certificates, duly
endorsed, representing the Shares and the Grantee will purchase such Shares from
the Company at the price per Share equal to the Exercise Price. In the event
that any federal, state, or local income taxes, employment taxes, Federal
Insurance Contribution Act ("FICA") withholdings or other amounts are required
by applicable law or governmental regulation to be withheld from the grantee in
connection with the exercise, these amounts must be remitted to the Company in
addition to the Exercise Price. Any payment made by the Grantee to the Company
pursuant to this Agreement shall be made by certified or official bank check.


      2.2. Legends. The certificates representing the Shares may bear an
appropriate legend relating to the fact that such Shares have not been
registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act").


SECTION III.            REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE GRANTEE

      3.1. Investment Representation. The Grantee represents and warrants to the
Company that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises
the Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for
its own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner
which would be in violation of the Act.
<PAGE>   4
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.8


      3.2. Restricted Securities. The Grantee represents and warrants to the
Company that the Grantee is an Accredited Investor as defined in Rule 501
promulgated under the Act. The Grantee understands that, if and when it
exercises the Option, the Grantee will be acquiring restricted securities under
applicable federal securities laws, and may dispose of such Shares only pursuant
to an effective registration statement under the Act or an exemption from
registration if available. The Grantee represents and warrants to the Company
that the Grantee is acquiring the Option and, if and when it exercises the
Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof for its
own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any manner which
would be in violation of the Act.


SECTION IV.       RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL

      If, at any time after the Closing Date, the Grantee proposes to sell all
or any part of the Shares in a transaction not required to be registered under
the Act, it shall give the Company the opportunity, in the following manner, to
purchase such Shares:

      4.1. Notice. The Grantee shall give notice to the Company in writing of
its intent to sell Shares (a "Disposition Notice"), specifying the number of
Shares to be sold, the price and the material terms of any agreement relating
thereto. The Disposition Notice may be given at any time, including prior to the
giving of any Stock Exercise Notice.

      4.2. Right to Purchase. The Company or its designee shall have the right,
exercisable by written notice given to the Grantee within five (5) days after
receipt of a Disposition Notice, to purchase all, but not less than all, of the
Shares specified in the Disposition Notice at the price set forth in the
Disposition Notice.

      4.3. Closing. If the Company exercises its right of first refusal
hereunder, the closing of the purchase of the Shares with respect to which such
right has been exercised shall take place within five (5) days after the notice
of such exercise; provided, however, that at any time prior to the closing of
the purchase of Shares hereunder, the Grantee may determine not to sell the
Shares and revoke the Disposition Notice and, by so doing, cancel the Company's
right of first refusal with respect thereto.

      4.4. Right to Sell. If the Company does not exercise its right of first
refusal hereunder within the time specified for such exercise, the Grantee shall
be free for thirty (30) days following the expiration of such time for exercise
to sell or enter into an agreement to sell the Shares specified in the
Disposition Notice, at the price specified in the Disposition Notice or any
price in excess thereof and otherwise on substantially the same terms set forth
in the Disposition Notice; provided, that if such sale is not consummated within
such 30-day period, then the provisions of this Section 4 will again apply to
the sale of such Shares.

                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.8


SECTION V.        INFORMATION

      Upon written request by the Grantee, the Company shall furnish to the
Grantee such information regarding the Company and its operation as shall be
reasonably necessary to enable the Grantee to make a decision as to whether or
not to exercise the Option; provided, however, that in no event shall the
Company be required to furnish information which constitutes trade secrets or
other proprietary information or the furnishing of which would be unduly
burdensome, financially or otherwise, to the Company.


SECTION VI.       ADJUSTMENT FOR CHANGES IN THE STOCK

      6.1. Stock Reclassification. In the event the shares of Stock, as
presently constituted, shall be changed into or exchanged for a different number
or kind of shares or other securities of the Company (whether by reason of
merger, consolidation, recapitalization, reclassification, split, reverse split,
combination of shares or otherwise), then there shall be substituted for or
added to each share of Stock theretofore or thereafter subject to an Option the
number and kind of shares of capital stock or other securities into, which each
outstanding share of Stock shall be changed, or for which each such share shall
be exchanged, or to which each such share shall be entitled, as the case may be.
The price and other terms of outstanding Options shall also be appropriately
amended to reflect the foregoing events. In the event there shall be any other
change in the number or kind of outstanding shares of the Stock, or of any
capital stock or other securities into which the Stock shall have been changed
or for which it shall have been exchanged, if the Board of Directors shall, in
its sole discretion, determine that the change equitably requires an adjustment
in any Option theretofore granted, then adjustments shall be made in accordance
with its determination.

      6.2. Fractional Shares. Fractional shares resulting from any adjustment in
Options pursuant to this Section 6 may be settled in cash or otherwise as the
Board of Directors shall determine.

      6.3. Notice.  Notice of any adjustment shall be given by the Company to
the Grantee in accordance with the requirements for providing notice to a Party
set forth in Section 7.7.

      6.4. Sale of the Assets of the Company, etc. Notwithstanding Section 6.1,
the Board of Directors shall have the power, in the event of the disposition of
all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or the dissolution of the
Company, or the merger or consolidation of the Company, or the making of a
tender offer to purchase all or a substantial portion of outstanding Stock of
the Company, to amend this Agreement (upon such conditions as it shall deem fit)
to (i) permit the exercise of the Options described herein prior to the
effective date of the transaction and to terminate all unexercised Options as of
that date, or (ii) require the forfeiture of all Options, provided the Company
pays to the Grantee the excess of the fair market value of the
<PAGE>   6
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.8


Stock subject to the Option (as determined by the Board of Directors if the
Company's common stock is not then freely tradable) over the exercise price of
the Option.


SECTION VII.      PUBLIC OFFERING OF COMPANY'S COMMON STOCK

      7.1. Lock-Up Agreement. Grantee, if requested by the Company and the lead
underwriter of any public offering of the common stock or other securities of
the Company (the "Lead Underwriter"), hereby irrevocably agrees not to sell,
contract to sell, grant any option to purchase, transfer the economic risk of
ownership in, make any short sale of, pledge or otherwise transfer or dispose of
any interest in any common stock or any securities convertible into or
exchangeable or exercisable for or any other rights to purchase or acquire
common stock (except common stock included in such public offering or acquired
on the public market after such offering) during the 180-day period following
the effective date of a registration statement of the Company filed under the
Securities Act, or such shorter period of time as the Lead Underwriter shall
specify. Grantee further agrees to sign such documents as may be requested by
the Lead Underwriter to effect the foregoing and agrees that the Company may
impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to such common stock subject
until the end of such period. The Company and Grantee acknowledge that each Lead
Underwriter of a public offering of the Company's stock, during the period of
such offering and for the 180-day period thereafter, is an intended beneficiary
of this Section 7.

      7.2. No Amendment or Waiver. During the period from identification as a
Lead Underwriter in connection with any public offering of the Company's common
stock until the earlier of (i) the expiration of the lock-up period specified in
Section 7.1 in connection with such offering or (ii) the abandonment of such
offering by the Company and the Lead Underwriter, the provisions of the Section
7 may not be amended or waived except with the consent of the Lead Underwriter.


SECTION VIII.     TAXES

      The amount to be paid by the Grantee upon exercise of any Option granted
by this Agreement shall be the full purchase price thereof provided in the
Option, together with the amount of federal, state, and local income and FICA
taxes required to be withheld by the Company. The Grantee may elect to pay his
or her federal, state, or local income and FICA withholding tax by having the
Company withhold shares of Company common stock having a value equal to the
amount required to be withheld. The value of the shares to be withheld is deemed
to equal the fair market value of the shares on the day the option is exercised
(as determined by the Board of Directors if the Company's common stock is not
then freely tradable). An election by a Grantee to have shares withheld for this
purpose will be subject to the following restrictions:

      (a)   if the Grantee has received additional Option grants in accordance
            with this Agreement, a separate election must be made for each
            grant;
<PAGE>   7
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.8


      (b) the election must be made prior to the day the Option is exercised;

      (c) the election will be irrevocable;

      (d) the election will be subject to the disapproval of the Board of
          Directors;

      (e) the election may not be made within six months following the grant of
          the Option; and

      (f) the election must be made either six months prior to the day the
          Option is exercised or ten (10) days beginning on the third day
          following the release of the Company's quarterly or annual summary
          statement of sales and earnings.


SECTION IX.       MISCELLANEOUS

      9.1. No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement shall not confer any
rights of remedies upon any Person other than the Parties and their respective
successors and permitted assigns.

      9.2. Default. In the event a Party fails to comply with the terms of this
Agreement, any other Party to this Agreement shall be entitled to (a) injunctive
relief, as a matter of right, in any court of competent jurisdiction; (b) any
other relief or remedy that may be available pursuant to this Agreement or at
law or equity.

      9.3.  Waivers.  The waiver by the undersigned of any of the provisions
of this Agreement shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any
subsequent breach.

      9.4. Headings. The section headings contained in this Agreement are for
reference purposes only and shall not affect the construction and interpretation
of this Agreement.

      9.5. Severability. The invalidity of all of any part of any section of
this Agreement shall not render invalid the remainder of such section. If any
provision of this Agreement is so broad as to be unenforceable, such provisions
shall be interpreted to be only so broad as is enforceable.

      9.6. Binding Effects. This Agreement shall not be assigned by any
Purchaser without the prior written consent of the Company. This Agreement shall
be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties, their heirs, personal
representatives, successors, and permitted assignees.

      9.7. Notices. Any notices provided pursuant to this Agreement shall be in
writing and shall be deemed given (i) if by hand, upon receipt thereof; (ii) if
mailed, three (3) days after deposit in the U.S. mails, postage prepaid,
certified mail return receipt requested, or (iii) if sent

                             STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT


      AGREEMENT, dated as of January 31, 1999, between GlobeComm, Inc. (the
"Company"), a Delaware corporation doing business at 11 Broadway, Suite 660, New
York, New York and Frank Graziano (the "Consultant") residing at _______________
_________________________. The Company and the Consultant are collectively
referred to as the "Parties."

      WHEREAS, the Consultant has performed consulting services for the
Company; and

      WHEREAS, the Company desires to partly compensate the Consultant by
granting to the Consultant options to purchase the Company's common stock, and
the Consultant desires to be partly compensated for his services by accepting
the grant of options to purchase the Company's common stock;

      NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and the mutual covenants
and agreements set forth herein, the Parties hereto agree as follows:


SECTION I.        OPTION TO PURCHASE SHARES

      1.1. Option. The Company hereby grants, as of the date of this Agreement,
and as subsequently amended on the attached Schedule A, to the Consultant an
irrevocable option (the "Option") to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock
(the "Shares") at the purchase per share indicated on Schedule A (the "Purchase
Price"). This option is not intended to satisfy the requirements of Section 422
of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended nor to qualify as an incentive
stock option.

      1.2. Exercise of Option. In the event the Consultant wishes to exercise
the Option, the Consultant shall send a written notice to the Company (the
"Stock Exercise Notice") specifying a date for the closing of such purchase.

      1.3.      Vesting.  The Option is fully vested and may be exercised, in
accordance with the terms of this Agreement, upon its grant.

      1.4. Transferability. No Option shall be transferable except by will or
the laws of descent and distribution. An Option shall be exercisable during the
Consultant's lifetime only by the Consultant.

      1.5.      Duration of Options.  Options may be exercised for terms of
up to but not exceeding ten (10) years from the date of grant.
<PAGE>   2
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.9

SECTION II.       THE CLOSING

      2.1. Closing Date. Any closing hereunder shall take place on the date
specified by the Consultant in its Stock Exercise Notice pursuant to Section 1
at 10:00 A.M., at the offices of the Company, or at such other time and place as
the Parties hereto may agree (the "Closing Date"). On the Closing Date, the
Company will deliver to the Consultant a certificate or certificates, duly
endorsed, representing the Shares and the Consultant will purchase such Shares
from the Company at the price per Share equal to the Exercise Price.

      2.2.      Payment.  Payment of the Purchase Price shall be made by
certified or official bank check.

      2.3. Legends. The certificates representing the Shares may bear an
appropriate legend relating to the fact that such Shares have not been
registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act").


SECTION III.      REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE CONSULTANT

      3.1. Investment Representation. The Consultant represents and warrants to
the Company that the Consultant is acquiring the Option and, if and when it
exercises the Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise
thereof for its own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any
manner which would be in violation of the Act.

      3.2. Restricted Securities. The Consultant represents and warrants to the
Company that the Consultant is an Accredited Investor as defined in Rule 501
promulgated under the Act. The Consultant understands that, if and when it
exercises the Option, the Consultant will be acquiring restricted securities
under applicable federal securities laws, and may dispose of such Shares only
pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Act or an exemption
from registration if available. The Consultant represents and warrants to the
Company that the Consultant is acquiring the Option and, if and when it
exercises the Option, will be acquiring the Shares issuable upon the exercise
thereof for its own account and not with a view to distribution or resale in any
manner which would be in violation of the Act.


SECTION IV.       RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL

      If, at any time after the Closing Date, the Consultant proposes to sell
all or any part of the Shares in a transaction not required to be registered
under the Act, it shall give the Company the opportunity, in the following
manner, to purchase such Shares:

      4.1. Notice. The Consultant shall give notice to the Company in writing of
its intent to sell Shares (a "Disposition Notice"), specifying the number of
Shares to be sold, the price and the material terms of any agreement relating
thereto. The Disposition Notice may be given at any time, including prior to the
giving of any Stock Exercise Notice.
<PAGE>   3
                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.9


      4.2. Right to Purchase. The Company or its designee shall have the right,
exercisable by written notice given to the Consultant within five (5) days after
receipt of a Disposition Notice, to purchase all, but not less than all, of the
Shares specified in the Disposition Notice at the price set forth in the
Disposition Notice.

      4.3. Closing. If the Company exercises its right of first refusal
hereunder, the closing of the purchase of the Shares with respect to which such
right has been exercised shall take place within five (5) days after the notice
of such exercise; provided, however, that at any time prior to the closing of
the purchase of Shares hereunder, the Consultant may determine not to sell the
Shares and revoke the Disposition Notice and, by so doing, cancel the Company's
right of first refusal with respect thereto.

      4.4. Right to Sell. If the Company does not exercise its right of first
refusal hereunder within the time specified for such exercise, the Consultant
shall be free for thirty (30) days following the expiration of such time for
exercise to sell or enter into an agreement to sell the Shares specified in the
Disposition Notice, at the price specified in the Disposition Notice or any
price in excess thereof and otherwise on substantially the same terms set forth
in the Disposition Notice; provided, that if such sale is not consummated within
such 30-day period, then the provisions of this Section 4 will again apply to
the sale of such Shares.


SECTION V.        INFORMATION

      Upon written request by the Consultant, the Company shall furnish to the
Consultant such information regarding the Company and its operation as shall be
reasonably necessary to enable the Consultant to make a decision as to whether
or not to exercise the Option; provided, however, that in no event shall the
Company be required to furnish information which constitutes trade secrets or
other proprietary information or the furnishing of which would be unduly
burdensome, financially or otherwise, to the Company.


SECTION VI.       ADJUSTMENT FOR CHANGES IN THE STOCK

      6.1. Stock Reclassification. In the event the shares of Stock, as
presently constituted, shall be changed into or exchanged for a different number
or kind of shares or other securities of the Company (whether by reason of
merger, consolidation, recapitalization, reclassification, split, reverse split,
combination of shares or otherwise), then there shall be substituted for or
added to each share of Stock theretofore or thereafter subject to an Option the
number and kind of shares of capital stock or other securities into, which each
outstanding share of Stock shall be changed, or for which each such share shall
be exchanged, or to which each such share shall be entitled, as the case may be.
The price and other terms of outstanding Options shall also be appropriately
amended to reflect the foregoing events. In the event there shall be any other
change in the number or kind of outstanding shares of the Stock, or of any
capital stock or other securities into which the Stock shall have been changed
or for which it shall have been exchanged, if the Board of Directors shall, in
its sole discretion, determine that the change

equitably requires an adjustment in any Option theretofore granted, then
adjustments shall be made in accordance with its determination.

      6.2. Fractional Shares. Fractional shares resulting from any adjustment in
Options pursuant to this Section 6 may be settled in cash or otherwise as the
Board of Directors shall determine.

      6.3. Notice. Notice of any adjustment shall be given by the Company to the
Consultant in accordance with the requirements for providing notice to a Party
set forth in Section 7.7.

      6.4. Sale of the Assets of the Company, etc. Notwithstanding Section 6.1,
the Board of Directors shall have the power, in the event of the disposition of
all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or the dissolution of the
Company, or the merger or consolidation of the Company, or the making of a
tender offer to purchase all or a substantial portion of outstanding Stock of
the Company, to amend this Agreement (upon such conditions as it shall deem fit)
to (i) permit the exercise of the Options described herein prior to the
effective date of the transaction and to terminate all unexercised Options as of
that date, or (ii) require the forfeiture of all Options, provided the Company
pays to the Consultant the excess of the fair market value of the Stock subject
to the Option (as determined by the Board of Directors if the Company's common
stock is not then freely tradable) over the exercise price of the Option.


SECTION VII.      PUBLIC OFFERING OF COMPANY'S COMMON STOCK

      7.1. Lock-Up Agreement. Consultant, if requested by the Company and the
lead underwriter of any public offering of the common stock or other securities
of the Company (the "Lead Underwriter"), hereby irrevocably agrees not to sell,
contract to sell, grant any option to purchase, transfer the economic risk of
ownership in, make any short sale of, pledge or otherwise transfer or dispose of
any interest in any common stock or any securities convertible into or
exchangeable or exercisable for or any other rights to purchase or acquire
common stock (except common stock included in such public offering or acquired
on the public market after such offering) during the 180-day period following
the effective date of a registration statement of the Company filed under the
Securities Act, or such shorter period of time as the Lead Underwriter shall
specify. Consultant further agrees to sign such documents as may be requested by
the Lead Underwriter to effect the foregoing and agrees that the Company may
impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to such common stock subject
until the end of such period. The Company and Consultant acknowledge that each
Lead Underwriter of a public offering of the Company's stock, during the period
of such offering and for the 180-day period thereafter, is an intended
beneficiary of this Section 7.

      7.2. No Amendment or Waiver. During the period from identification as a
Lead Underwriter in connection with any public offering of the Company's common
stock until the earlier of (i) the expiration of the lock-up period specified in
Section 7.1 in connection with such offering or (ii) the abandonment of such
offering by the Company and the Lead Underwriter, the

                                                                    EXHIBIT 99.9


provisions of the Section 7 may not be amended or waived except with the consent
of the Lead Underwriter.

other relief or remedy that may be available pursuant to this Agreement or at
