Item 2.  Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

         On May 5, 1998, Outlook Group Corp. (the "Company") sold substantially
all of the assets of its Outlook Foods, Inc. subsidiary ("Foods") to Lake
Country Foods, Inc. and Lake Country Properties, LLC (together, the "Buyer"),
entities otherwise unaffiliated with the Company but of which David L. Erdmann,
the former chairman of the board and chief executive officer of the Company and
a greater-than-5% shareholder of the Company, is a co-owner. The approximate
total sales price was $8.9 million, of which $6.1 million was paid in cash at
closing, $1.5 million is payable over four years after closing, and $1.3 million
was paid by assumption of certain liabilities. All amounts are approximate and 
are subject to post-closing adjustments within the next 90 days based upon the
actual amount of certain current assets and the assumed liabilities at the
effective time of closing. The acquisition agreement also provides for a
possible $300,000 (which may be increased to $350,000 under certain
circumstances) credit against amounts due from the Buyer to Foods for qualifying
capital enhancements to be made to the Oconomowoc, Wisconsin facility which was
conveyed in the transaction, and certain other possible adjustments. The
acquisition agreement also includes various other customary terms and
conditions. The transaction was signed and closed on May 5, 1998, but was made
effective as of May 1, 1998.

         The Company's intention to sell the food processing business was
previously announced by the Company, and the Foods operations had been accounted
for as a discontinued operation since 1996. The Company had previously announced
the execution of a letter of intent with another party relating to the sale of
the Foods operations. In the course of discussions and negotiations with that
party after signing the letter of intent, the Company became aware of
opportunities which it believed could result in a more beneficial transaction.
With the other party's permission, the Company began to explore those options,
which ultimately led to the transaction reported herein.

         The terms of the transactions were determined by arms' length
negotiations between the Company and the Buyer, which did not begin until after
Mr. Erdmann ceased serving as a director and executive officer of the Company.
The Company's lenders provided waivers under the Company's existing credit
agreements to permit the transaction.

Item 7.  Financial Statements and Exhibits.

         (b)      Pro Forma Financial Information.

         The following pro forma (unaudited) financial statements of the Company
reflecting the foregoing transaction are included in this report:

         Pro Forma Consolidated Balance Sheet
                  at February 27, 1998..................................     F-2

         Pro Forma Consolidated Statements of Operations:

                  Financial Statements...................................    F-5

The following unaudited pro forma financial statements give effect to
the sale of Foods and the application of the net proceeds as described in
footnote (a). The unaudited condensed consolidated pro forma balance sheet as
of February 27, 1998, is based on the historical balance sheet of the Company
and is presented as if the sale had occurred on that date. The unaudited pro 
forma condensed statements of consolidated operations for the year ended 
May 31, 1997 and for the nine month period ended February 27, 1998 assume that 
the sale occurred at the beginning of fiscal 1997.

The transaction proceeds used in the preparation of these pro forma
financial statements differ from the proceeds described in Item 2. This is due
to the fact that the sale price was contingent upon the book value of Foods on
the date of the transaction and the pro forma balance sheet assumes the
transaction occurred on February 27, 1998, whereas Item 2 describes the
transaction as it occurred effective as of May 1, 1998. Additionally, the
operations which were sold had been accounted for as discontinued operations
since fiscal 1997.

The unaudited condensed pro forma statement of consolidated operations is not
necessarily indicative of the financial results that would have occurred had the
sale of Foods been consummated on the indicated date, nor is it necessarily
indicative of future financial results.

         nine month period ended February 27, 1998 reflect adjustments to 
         interest resulting from the assumed use of proceeds to reduce 
         outstanding debt, net of income tax effect.


(c)      The pro forma unaudited condensed statement of consolidated operations
         for the year ended May 31, 1997 does not reflect an adjustment to 
         record the loss on sale of Foods, net of related income taxes. The 
         actual loss will be reflected in the Company's financial statements 
         on Form 10-K for the year ended May 31, 1998. The unaudited condensed 
         consolidated balance sheet as of February 27, 1998 does include 
         an adjustment to retained earnings of $575,000, net of related income 
         taxes, to record the loss on sale of Foods if it had occurred on that 
         date.

final and binding upon all parties hereto. Each of the parties shall furnish, at
its own expense, the Independent Accountants and the other parties with such
documents and other written information as the Independent Accountants may
request. Each party may also furnish to the Independent Accountants such other
written information and documents as it deems relevant with appropriate copies
or notification being given to the other party. The Independent Accountants may,
at their discretion, conduct a conference concerning the disagreement with Buyer
and Foods, at which conference each party shall have the right to present such
additional documents, materials and other information and to have present such
advisors, counsel and

                                       14



<PAGE>   21



accountants as each party shall choose in its sole discretion. In connection
with such process, there shall be no hearings, oral examinations, testimony,
depositions, discovery or other similar proceedings conducted by any party or by
the Independent Accountants. The Independent Accountants shall determine the
proportion of their fees and expenses to be paid by each of Buyer and Foods, the
greater the degree to which the Independent Accountants have accepted the
position of a party, the smaller the proportion of fees and expenses assessed.

                           (f)      Closing Payment.

                              (i)   If the Closing Payment determined 
above is greater than the Closing Payment Estimate, either based on the
determination of the Independent Accountants or based on the fact that Buyer
does not object to Foods' calculation of the Closing Payment, Buyer shall within
fifteen business days pay to Foods the amount by which the Closing Payment is in
excess of the Closing Payment Estimate.

                              (ii)  If the Closing Payment is less than the
Closing Payment Estimate, either based on the determination of the Independent
Accountant or based on the fact that Buyer does not object to Foods' calculation
of the Closing Payment, Foods shall within fifteen business days pay to Buyer
the amount by which the Closing Payment Estimate is less than the Closing
Payment.

                              (iii) Any payment required by this Section 2.3
of this Agreement shall not bear interest until 90 days after Closing, after
which date amounts due shall bear interest at nine percent per annum.

                  2.4 Allocation of Purchase Price. An allocation of the
Purchase Price among the classes of Purchased Assets will be mutually agreed
upon between the parties in accordance with Section 1060 of the Code and set
forth in the Supplemental Agreement.

                  2.5 Assumption of Liabilities. Except for the Assumed
Liabilities, Buyer shall not assume any liabilities or obligations of Foods.

                                OTHER AGREEMENTS

                  3.1      Disclosure Schedule.  Contemporaneously with the
execution and delivery of this Agreement, Foods is delivering to
Buyer the Disclosure Schedule.  The Disclosure Schedule is deemed

                                       15



<PAGE>   22



to constitute an integral part of this Agreement and to modify the
representations, warranties, covenants or agreements of Foods contained in this
Agreement.

                  3.2 Public Announcements. Subject to each party's disclosure
obligations imposed by Law or Outlook's NASDAQ listing requirements, Foods and
Buyer will cooperate with each other in the development and distribution of all
news releases and other public information disclosures with respect to this
Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and shall
not issue any public announcement or statement with respect thereto prior to
consultation with the other parties. In the event that disclosure obligations
under Law or Outlook's NASDAQ listing requirements do not permit prior
consultation, the party making the announcement shall provide the other parties
immediate notice of such announcement.

                  3.3 Effective Time; Risk of Loss. The parties agree that, for
all financial and accounting purposes, the transactions described in this
Agreement shall be deemed effective as of the Effective Time of Closing. All
risk of loss and rights to insurance proceeds with respect to the Purchased
Assets shall remain with Foods until the Effective Time of Closing and, assuming
the occurrence of the Closing, shall pass to Buyer effective as of the Effective
Time of Closing.

                  3.4 Employees. Buyer shall offer employment to, and shall
hire, not less than such number of the Employees on terms and conditions of
employment substantially similar to those of Foods so that neither the Buyer nor
Foods has to comply with the prior notice requirements under the Federal or
Wisconsin plant closing laws. Among other things, Buyer shall assume the Union
Contracts, and shall obtain any consents required thereunder to the assumption
of the Union Contracts by Buyer without continuing liability to Foods for future
actions or requirements arising thereunder.

                  3.5 Nonassignable Purchased Contracts. (a) Buyer shall obtain
any necessary consents from Nestle and ITC, respectively, to the assignment from
Foods to Buyer, and the assumption by Buyer, of the Nestle Agreement and the ITC
Agreement on terms that shall include a release of Foods from any continuing
liability thereunder.

                           (b) To the extent that the assignment of any other
Purchased Contract to Buyer pursuant to this Agreement shall require the consent
of any other party, this Agreement shall not constitute a contract to assign the
same if an attempted assignment would constitute a breach of such Purchased
Contract. Buyer shall use its good faith efforts, and Foods shall cooperate
where

                                       16



<PAGE>   23



appropriate, to obtain any consent necessary to any such assignment. If any such
consent is not obtained, Foods shall cooperate with Buyer in any reasonable
arrangement requested by Buyer designed to provide for Buyer the benefit,
monetary or otherwise, of any such Purchased Contract, including enforcement of
any and all rights of Foods against the other party thereto arising out of
breach or cancellation thereof by such other party or otherwise. Buyer shall
reimburse Foods for all out-of-pocket costs and expenses it incurs either in
connection with enforcing such a contract against the other party thereto or in
connection with assisting Buyer in performing its obligations under the
contract.

                           (c)  Buyer shall be responsible for obtaining, and
shall use its best efforts to obtain, any required consents to the assignment
and assumption of the Purchased Contracts. Except as set forth below, Buyer
shall be responsible for all costs and expenses relating to obtaining such
consents. Foods shall reasonably cooperate with Buyer in seeking to obtain such
consents, and Foods shall bear any and all costs and expenses it incurs in
connection with such reasonable cooperation.

                  3.6 Referrals and Deliveries. After the Closing, Foods shall
promptly: (a) deliver to Buyer, in the form received and with the addition of
any required endorsements by Foods, any cash, checks or other payments received
by Foods after the Closing relating to the Purchased Assets; (b) refer to Buyer
any and all inquiries from customers or suppliers of Foods or other Persons
relating to the Foods Business other than the Retained Assets; and (c) deliver
to Buyer all purchase orders received by Foods after the Closing relating to the
Foods Business.

                  3.7 Access; Confidentiality. (a) Until the Closing, Buyer and
its authorized agents, officers and representatives shall have reasonable access
to the properties, books, records, contracts, information and documents of Foods
to conduct such examination and investigation of Foods as it deems necessary,
provided that such examinations shall: (i) be after reasonable prior notice and
during Foods normal business hours; (ii) not unreasonably interfere with Foods
operations and activities; and (iii) be subject to the prior approval of Outlook
if the information or documents requested are, in the reasonable opinion of an
officer of Foods, of a nature which may compromise the competitive position of
Foods. Foods shall cooperate in all reasonable respects with Buyer's
examinations and investigations.

                           (b)      Until the Closing, and thereafter if the
transactions provided for herein are not consummated, Buyer and its members,
directors, officers, agents and representatives will hold in strict confidence,
and not utilize in any manner, all

                                       17



<PAGE>   24



information obtained from Foods and Outlook and their respective directors,
officers, agents or representatives, excepting however, any such information
which: (i) was or is in the public domain; (ii) was in fact known to Buyer prior
to disclosure to Buyer by Foods or Outlook (except that information known to the
Manager as a result of his former positions with Outlook and Foods shall not
constitute prior knowledge of Buyer); (iii) is disclosed to Buyer by a third
party (other than officers, directors, employees and agents of Foods or Outlook)
after disclosure by Foods or Outlook; or (iv) thereafter through an act or
failure to act on the part of Outlook or Foods becomes information generally
available to the public.

                  3.8 Duties Concerning Representations. Each party to this
Agreement shall: (a) to the extent within its control, use reasonable efforts to
cause all of its representations and warranties contained in this Agreement to
be true and correct in all respects on the Closing Date with the same force and
effect as if such representations and warranties had been made on the Closing
Date; and (b) use reasonable efforts to obtain any third party consents or
approvals required by this Agreement and to cause all of the conditions
precedent set forth in Articles VI and VII of this Agreement to be satisfied.

                  3.9 Collection of Retained Accounts. Foods is retaining the
Retained Accounts for its own benefit. So long as any partic ular customer owes
any money on any Retained Accounts, any payment by such customer on the Retained
Accounts, the Accounts or a subsequently arising account receivable of Buyer
which payment does not specify the invoice to which it is to be applied shall be
deemed to be made on the Retained Accounts. If Buyer receives any payment at any
time on, or which is required to be applied against, any Retained Account, Buyer
shall immediately transmit such payment, in the form received together with any
documents or materials received, with such payment, to Foods. Buyer shall be
paid 5% of the net collected amount on such Retained Accounts which are
collected by, or with the assistance of, the Buyer as a reimbursement for its
costs of processing.

                  3.10 Nestle Environmental Indemnification. Outlook and Foods
shall cooperate with Buyer and Properties to enforce Foods' rights against
Nestle relating to environmental remediation and liabilities relating to the
Real Estate pursuant to Section 9.4 of the Asset Purchase Agreement among
Nestle, Foods and Outlook dated December 22, 1992, including paying to Buyer or
Properties of net payments received from Nestle. Foods and Outlook shall take
such action as Properties or Buyer may reasonably request with respect to
securing performance by Nestle of its obligations thereunder, provided that
Buyer or Properties shall reimburse Foods and Outlook

                                       18



<PAGE>   25



for their out-of-pocket costs (excluding wages to Outlook's and Foods'
employees) of doing so. Foods and Outlook shall endeavor to provide Buyer and
Properties estimates of such costs in advance. Buyer and Properties shall fully
cooperate to allow Foods and Outlook to comply with all of their obligations
under such Section 9.4, it being understood that any failure of Buyer or
Properties to so cooperate may have the effect of diminishing rights against, or
payments from, Nestle, as provided in such Section 9.4 or otherwise.

                  3.11 Trade Payables. Buyer shall pay the Trade Payables in
accordance with their terms. Buyer shall not, without Foods' prior consent,
dispute or challenge any Trade Payable. Buyer shall regularly (and not less
frequently than weekly) provide Foods written updates on the payment status of
the Trade Payables.

                  3.12 Repurchase of Accounts. To the extent that any of the
Accounts remain uncollected by Buyer more than 120 days after the Effective Time
of Closing, Buyer may by written notice require Foods to repurchase such
Accounts, at their face value. Such payment shall be made by Outlook within five
business days of such request, and such unpaid accounts shall be conveyed to
Buyer to Foods by means of a bill of sale substantially similar in form and
content to the Bill of Sale. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, Foods
shall not be required to repurchase any such Account which has been compromised,
forgiven, reduced or otherwise adjusted without the prior written consent of an
officer of Outlook.

                  3.13 "Outlook Foods" Name. (a) Solely for the purpose of
transitioning to a new trade name or trade names to be employed by Buyer, Foods
hereby grants Buyer the right to use the trade name "Outlook Foods" (but not the
name "Outlook" without the word "Foods") and related designs on the Purchased
Assets in the manner in which such name designations are currently in use, and
to use existing supplies and materials included in the Purchased Assets.
However, Buyer shall not use the name "Outlook Foods" as part of its legal name
or as an assumed or "d/b/a" name, and shall not refer to itself as "Outlook
Foods" or imply affiliation with Outlook. The license created by this section
shall expire on the 18th month anniversary of the Effective Date of Closing. (b)
During the period of such license, prior to the use of such name in any manner
other than the manner in which it is currently used, Buyer shall submit such
proposed use to Outlook for Outlook's approval prior to such use. Outlook's
approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.

         4.7 below);

                           (ii) The Permitted Liens; and

                           (i) Foods shall pay all utility charges and other

                           (ii) All ad valorem real estate taxes shall be
         prorated between Properties and Foods as of the Closing Date based on
         the most recently available tax bill for the Real Estate, Seller being
         charged and credited for the same up to and including the Closing Date

         special assessments shall be paid by Properties. Properties shall

                           (iii) Properties shall pay for the cost of recording
         the Deed, all costs relating to any financing obtained by Properties,
         all title insurance endorsements and other title insurance coverage in

                  3.15 Environmental Matters. (a) Foods, Buyer and Properties
shall reasonably cooperate to obtain the Environmental Policy for the benefit of
Foods, Buyer and Properties. Foods shall pay up to $30,000 of the cost of the
Environmental Policy; any additional amount, any amount to insure any party
other than Foods, Buyer or Properties and any other costs related to

                  (b) (i) Foods, Properties and Buyer acknowledge that Foods and
Outlook have disclosed to Properties and Buyer certain environmental matters. In
particular, the Disclosure Schedule sets forth certain recommendations as to
environmental enhancements at the Real Estate which may or may not require
further capital expenditures (which may include the possible payment of
governmental assessments, fines or penalties) by Buyer or Properties in the
future relating to periods prior to the Effective Time of Closing to comply with
Environmental Laws, to the extent not already addressed by Foods (collectively,
the "Environmental Enhancements"). To reflect an allocation of the costs of such
possible Environmental Enhancements, as the "Environmental Adjustment," Buyer
may reduce, on a dollar for dollar basis up to the maximum amount set forth
herein, its principal and interest payment obligations as described in Section
2.2(b) by the actual capital expenditures made by Buyer or Properties in the
making or procuring of required Environmental Enhancements (but not in respect
to any related operating expenses or employee wages). The maximum aggregate
Environmental Adjustment shall be Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000).
Nothing herein shall constitute an admission by Foods or Outlook that any matter
is not in compliance

                                       21



<PAGE>   28



with Environmental Laws and this section is merely to provide a contractual
allocation of certain costs and risks among the parties hereto.

         (ii) Buyer shall provide Foods prior written notice prior to effecting
any Environmental Enhancements, so as to give Foods the opportunity to review
the proposed action, to determine whether it is in fact an Environmental
Enhancement and to work with Buyer to determine the most cost effective means of
effecting any Environmental Enhancement. Upon completion of any Environmental
Enhancements or portion thereof for which Properties or Buyer has been invoiced,
prior to taking any Environmental Adjustment, Buyer shall provide Foods with the
following: (A) copies of any applicable invoices and/or bills, appropriately
itemized, showing items or services purchased, and showing their qualification
as Environmental Enhancements; and (B) a receipt showing that the amount being
set off has been paid to the party providing the item or service.

         (iii) Any Environmental Adjustment may be taken solely as a set off
against amounts due by Buyer under Section 2.2(b). All such Environmental
Adjustments (if any) must be taken by Buyer on or before the third anniversary
date of the Effective Time of Closing. Nothing herein shall require Foods or
Outlook to make any cash payments of Environmental Adjustments in the event that
payments under Section 2.2(b) are not made by Buyer or otherwise. In addition,
no Environmental Adjustment shall be made for the first $5,000 of qualifying
costs of Buyer and Properties to effect any particular Environmental Enhancement
item, or to the extent that any such matter is covered by or through the Nestle
environmental indemnification as provided in Section 3.10 hereof or is covered
by the Environmental Policy.

                  3.16 Facility Adjustment. (a) Foods, Properties and Buyer
acknowledge that the Buildings and the Real Estate are in need of certain
repairs and enhancements, and that the Foods' Business' computer and software
systems require certain enhancements (collectively, the "Capital Enhancements").
To reflect an allocation of the costs of such Capital Enhancements, as the
"Facility Adjustment," Buyer may reduce, on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to the
maximum amount set forth herein, its principal and interest payment obligations
as described in Section 2.2(b) by the actual capital expenditures made by Buyer
in the making or procuring of such Capital Enhancements (but not in respect of
any related operating expenses or wages to Buyer employees). The maximum
aggregate Facility Adjustment shall be Three Hundred Thousand Dollars
($300,000.00), except that such amount may be increased to Three Hundred Fifty
Thousand Dollars ($350,000.00) in

                                       22



<PAGE>   29



the event that the repair costs for milk tanks exceeds $300,000, with such
increase limited to one-half of such excess.

                  (b) Upon completion of any Capital Enhancements, prior to
taking any Facility Adjustment, Buyer shall provide Foods with the following:
(i) copies of any applicable invoices and/or bills, appropriately itemized,
showing items or services purchased, and showing their qualification as Capital
Enhancements; and (ii) a receipt showing that the amount being set off has been
paid to the party providing the item or service. Any Facility Adjustment may be
taken solely as a set-off against amounts due by Buyer under Section 2.2(b), and
nothing herein shall require Foods or Outlook to make any cash payments of
Facility Adjustments in the event the payments under Section 2.2(b) are not made
by Buyer or otherwise.

Closing, Foods will own good and valid title to the Purchased Assets, free and
clear of any and all Liens, except the Permitted Liens; provided, however, that

                  4.7 Condition of Assets. To the Knowledge of Foods, the
Buildings and the Real Estate are not in current violation of any municipal,
zoning or building code or regulation; insurance or rating code regulation; or
similar ordinances or municipal legal requirements that would cause the
Buildings and the Real Estate, taken as a whole, to be unsuitable for the
purposes for which they are now being used by Foods. Representatives of Buyer
and Properties have inspected the Buildings, the Equipment, the Inventory and
the Real Estate and as a result of such inspections and the condition of such
assets, Foods has offered Buyer certain price concessions in lieu of ongoing
representations and warranties of condition. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH
HEREIN, FOODS AND OUTLOOK MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES TO BUYER OR
PROPERTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO SUCH, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

                  4.8 Accounts. To the Knowledge of Foods, the Accounts have all
arisen from bona fide transactions. Foods makes no representation or warranty as

or any of the Members has knowledge of any breaches or inaccuracies of any of
representations and warranties made herein by Foods or Outlook at the Effective
Time of Closing, or such Certificate shall describe such inaccuracies or
breaches of which Buyer, Properties or any Member is aware. Notwithstanding any
other provision of this Agreement, Buyer and Properties shall not have any right
of indemnity under Section 9.1 against Outlook or Foods to the extent that the
Buyer Closing Certificate fails to disclose any such matter as required by this
Section 9.3(e). However, such failure shall not affect Buyer's or Properties'
rights under Sections 3.10, 3.15 or 3.16 hereof.

                         (f)      Termination.  The right of any indemnified
party to receive indemnity as provided in this Article IX of this Agreement
shall, as to any matter which has not been described in a notice delivered to an
indemnifying party pursuant to Section 10.5 of this Agreement prior to such time
and except for the matters set forth in Sections 4.4, 4.11 and 4.13 and for
ongoing obligations under this Agreement, expire at 11:59 P.M., Central Time, on
November 30, 1999 for all matters described in or covered by this Article IX of
this Agreement. The right of Buyer to receive indemnity with respect to matters
set forth in Section 4.11 shall terminate at the expiration of the underlying
statutes of limitation relating to such matters. The right of Buyer or
Properties to receive indemnity with respect to the matters set forth in Section
4.13 shall terminate at the expiration of the later of (i) Nestle's
indemnification of Foods relating thereto and (ii) the Environmental Policy. The
termination of the rights of an indemnified party to receive indemnity as
described in the immediately preceding sentence shall not affect any Person's
right to prosecute to conclusion any claim made by that Person prior to the time
that the relevant right of indemnity terminates.

                         (g)      Environmental Adjustment and Facility
Adjustment. In construing the Environmental Adjustment, the Facility Adjustment
and the indemnities provided herein, no claim for indemnity under Section 9.1
may be made with respect to any matter as to which there has been, or could have
been if properly

                                       36

made by Buyer or Properties, a Facility Adjustment or an Environmental
Adjustment, as the Environmental Adjustments and Facility Adjustment are the
exclusive remedies therefor (except as provided in Section 3,10, 3.15(a) or
9.3(d)). In addition, to the extent a particular item may constitute both a
Capital Enhancement and an Environmental Enhancement, it shall be considered to
be such of those items as Buyer has designated at the time of taking a Facility
Adjustment or Environmental Adjustment, but shall not be subsequently changed.
No claim may be made for the same item as both a Capital Enhancement and an
Environmental Enhancement.

made pursuant to this Agreement shall survive the Closing Date and the 
Effective Time of Closing and the consummation of the transactions contemplated
by this Agreement and, except for the warranty at Sections 4.4, 4.11 and 4.13, 
shall terminate and be of no further force and effect at 11:59 P.M. Central 
Time on November 30, 1999.  The representations and warranties in Sections
4.11 and 4.13 shall expire at the termination of the indemnification obligation
provided in Section 9.3(f).  The termination of the representations and 
warranties contained in the immediately preceding sentence shall not affect a 
party's right to prosecute to conclusion any claim made in writing by such 
party, and received by the other party, prior to such time.

                  10.2 Entire Agreement; Amendment. This Agreement, the

agreements, understandings, negotiations and discussions of the parties, whether
oral or written, and there are no warranties, representations or other
agreements between the parties in connection with the subject matter of this
Agreement, except as specifically set forth in this Agreement. No amendment,
supplement, modification, waiver or termination of this Agreement shall be
binding unless executed in writing by the party to be bound thereby. No waiver
of any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed or shall constitute a
waiver of any other provision of this Agreement, whether or not similar, nor
shall such waiver constitute a continuing waiver unless otherwise expressly
provided.

original, but such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same
Agreement. The Table of Contents and Article and Section headings in this
Agreement are inserted for convenience of reference only and shall not

invalid, the remainder of this Agreement, or the application of such provision,

access to the Purchased Records or Foods' records that are not Purchased
Records, as the case may be, and such right to make copies thereof, for the two
year period from and after the Closing Date, as Foods or Buyer may deem
necessary or desirable. Any such examination shall be at the expense of the
examining party, shall be performed at the place where the records are regularly
maintained during the maintaining party's normal business hours and shall not
unreasonably interfere with the maintaining party's normal business activities.

                  10.13 Bulk Sales Law. The parties waive compliance with the
