ARTICLE 3 CAPITALIZATION OF THE COMPANY 3.1 Initial Capital Contributions. On June 8, 2001, Rodeo, Inc. made a Capital Contribution to the capital of the Company consisting of the LLC Incentive Distribution Rights. On the Initial Capital Contribution Date, each Initial Member shall make a Capital Contribution to the capital of the Company consisting of cash as set forth opposite such Member's name on Schedule 1 hereto, which shall immediately be distributed to Rodeo, Inc. The initial Percentage Interest of such Member following such Capital Contribution on the Initial Capital Contribution Date shall be as set forth on Schedule 1 hereto, which shall be amended from time to time in accordance with the terms hereof (including, but not limited to, upon the making of additional Capital Contributions pursuant to Section 3.2(b)) to reflect appropriate adjustments to such Percentage Interests and Capital Contributions. 3.2 Additional Capital Contributions. (a) Except as set forth in Section 3.1 and for Capital Contributions from each Member in proportion to such Member's then outstanding Percentage Interest in respect of the General Partner's Percentage for equity issuances by Rodeo, L.P., and for equity issuances approved pursuant to Section 7.9(b)(ii), no Member shall be required to make any additional Capital Contribution. (b) Subject to the approval of a Majority in Interest pursuant to Section 7.9, the Company may offer additional Membership Interests to any Person with the approval of the Board. Such approval of the Majority in Interest shall also include their approval of any related valuations of Gross Asset Value by the Board and, if such Majority in Interest approves such issuance without approving such valuation, Gross Asset Value shall be determined by a third Person familiar with the valuation of such transactions selected by the Majority in Interest not later than ten (10) days after their approval of such issuance or, if the Majority in Interest fails to so select a third Person, then such third Person will be selected in accordance with the rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association in Houston, Texas. If any additional Capital Contributions are made by Members but not in proportion to their respective Percentage Interests, the Percentage Interest of each Member shall be adjusted such that each Member's revised Percentage Interest determined immediately following each such additional Capital Contribution shall be equal to a fraction (i) the numerator of which is the sum of (A) the positive Capital Account balance of the Member determined immediately preceding the date such additional Capital Contribution is made (such Capital Account to be computed by adjusting the book value for Capital Account purposes of each Company asset to equal its Gross Asset Value as of such date, as provided in subparagraph (b) of the definition herein of "Gross Asset Value"), 11 EXECUTION COPY and (B) such additional Capital Contribution, if any, made by such Member, and (ii) the denominator of which is the sum of the positive Capital Account balances immediately preceding the date such additional Capital Contribution is made plus additional Capital Contributions of all Members on the date of such additional Capital Contribution, including Capital Contributions of any new Members (in each case calculated as provided in (i) above). The names, addresses and Capital Contributions of the Members shall be reflected in the books and records of the Company. 3.3 Loans. (a) No Member shall be obligated to loan funds to the Company. Loans by a Member to the Company shall not be considered Capital Contributions. The amount of any such loan shall be a debt of the Company owed to such Member in accordance with the terms and conditions upon which such loan is made. (b) A Member may (but shall not be obligated to) guarantee a loan made to the Company. If a Member guarantees a loan made to the Company and is required to make payment pursuant to such guarantee to the maker of the loan, then the amounts so paid to the maker of the loan shall be treated as a loan by such Member to the Company and not as an additional Capital Contribution. 3.4 Maintenance of Capital Accounts. (a) The Company shall maintain for each Member a separate Capital Account with respect to the Membership Interest owned by such Member in accordance with the following provisions: (i) To each Member's Capital Account there shall be credited (A) such Member's Capital Contributions, (B) such Member's share of Profits and (C) the amount of any Company liabilities assumed by such Member or which are secured by any Property distributed to such Member. The principal amount of a promissory note which is not readily traded on an established securities market and which is contributed to the Company by the maker of the note (or a Member related to the maker of the note within the meaning of Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(c)) shall not be included in the Capital Account of any Member until the Company makes a taxable disposition of the note or until (and only to the extent) principal payments are made on the note, all in accordance with Regulation Section 1.704- 1(b)(2)(iv)(d)(2); (ii) To each Member's Capital Account there shall be debited (A) the amount of money and the Gross Asset Value of any Property distributed or treated as an advance distribution to such Member pursuant to any provision of this Agreement (including without limitation any distributions pursuant to Section 4.1), (B) such Member's share of Losses and (C) the amount of any liabilities of such Member assumed by the Company or which are secured by any Property contributed by such Member to the Company; (iii) In the event Membership Interests are Transferred in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the transferee shall succeed to the Capital Account of the 12 EXECUTION COPY transferor to the extent such Capital Account relates to the Transferred Membership Interests; and (iv) In determining the amount of any liability for purposes of Sections 3.4(a)(i) and (ii) there shall be taken into account Code Section 752(c) and any other applicable provisions of the Code and Regulations. (v) For purposes hereof, the Capital Account of Rodeo, Inc. shall be increased by the fair market value of the subordinated units in Rodeo, L.P. delivered to employees of the Company by Rodeo or an affiliate of Rodeo pursuant to Section 1(d)(ii) of the Transition Agreement of even date herewith (the "COMPENSATORY UNITS") and by an amount equal to the payment of transition bonuses to employees of the Company pursuant to the Transition Agreement for which a deduction is allocated to Rodeo, Inc. pursuant to Section 5.3(d). (b) The foregoing Section 3.4(a) and the other provisions of this Agreement relating to the maintenance of Capital Accounts are intended to comply with Regulation Section 1.704-1(b) and, to the greatest extent practicable, shall be interpreted and applied in a manner consistent with such Regulation. The Board in its discretion and to the extent otherwise consistent with the terms of this Agreement shall (i) make any adjustments that are necessary or appropriate to maintain equality between the Capital Accounts of the Members and the amount of capital reflected on the Company's balance sheet, as computed for book purposes, in accordance with Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(q), and (ii) make any appropriate modifications in the event unanticipated events might otherwise cause this Agreement not to comply with Regulation Section 1.704-1(b). 3.5 Capital Withdrawal Rights, Interest and Priority. Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, no Member shall be entitled to (a) withdraw or reduce such Member's Capital Contribution or to receive any distributions from the Company, or (b) receive or be credited with any interest on the balance of such Member's Capital Contribution at any time. ARTICLE 4 DISTRIBUTIONS 4.1 Distributions of Available Cash. An amount equal to 100% of Available Cash with respect to each fiscal quarter of the Partnership shall be distributed to the Members in proportion to their relative Percentage Interests within forty-five days after the end of such quarter. 4.2 Persons Entitled to Distributions. All distributions of Available Cash to Members for a fiscal quarter pursuant to Section 4.1 shall be made to the Members shown on the records of the Company to be entitled thereto as of the last day of such quarter, unless the transferor and transferee of any Membership Interest otherwise agree in writing to a different distribution and such distribution is consented to in writing by the Board. 13 EXECUTION COPY 4.3 Limitations on Distributions. (a) Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, no distributions shall be made except pursuant to this Article 4 or Article 10. (b) Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, no distribution hereunder shall be permitted if such distribution would violate Section 18-607 of the Act or other applicable law. ARTICLE 5 ALLOCATIONS 5.1 Profits. Profits for any Taxable Year shall be allocated: (a) first, to those Members to which Losses have previously been allocated pursuant to Section 5.2(c) hereof so as to bring each such Member's Capital Account to zero, pro rata in accordance with the sum of each such Member's Losses; and (b) second, any remaining Profits shall be allocated among the Members in proportion to their respective Percentage Interests. 5.2 Losses. Losses for any Taxable Year shall be allocated: (a) first, to the Members to which Profits have previously been allocated pursuant to Section 5.1(b) to the extent of such Profits; (b) second, to Members in proportion to their positive Capital Account balances until such Capital Account balances have been reduced to zero; and (c) third, any remaining Losses shall be allocated among the Members in proportion to their respective Percentage Interests. 5.3 Regulatory Allocations. (a) Gross Income Allocation. In the event any Member has an Adjusted Capital Account Deficit at the end of any Taxable Year, such Member shall be specially allocated items of Company income and gain in the amount of such deficit balance as quickly as possible; provided, that an allocation pursuant to this Section 5.3(a) shall be made only if and to the extent that such Member would have an Adjusted Capital Account Deficit balance after all other allocations provided for in this Article 5 have been made. (b) Qualified Income Offset. In the event any Member unexpectedly receives any adjustments, allocations, or distributions described in Regulation Sections 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(4), 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(5) or 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(6), items of Company income and gain shall be specially allocated to such Member in an amount and manner sufficient to eliminate, to the extent required by the Regulations, the Adjusted Capital Account Deficit of such Member as quickly as possible, provided, that an allocation pursuant to this Section 5.3(b) 14 EXECUTION COPY shall be made only if and to the extent that such Member would have an Adjusted Capital Account Deficit after all other allocations provided for in this Article 5 have been made. (c) Curative Allocations. The allocations set forth in Sections 5.3(a) and (b) hereof (the "REGULATORY ALLOCATIONS") are intended to comply with certain requirements of the Regulations. It is the intent of the Members that, to the extent possible, all Regulatory Allocations shall be offset either with other Regulatory Allocations or with special allocations of other items of Company income, gain, loss or deduction pursuant to this Section 5.3(c). Therefore, notwithstanding any other provision of this Article 5 (other than the Regulatory Allocations), the Board shall make such offsetting special allocations of income, gain, loss or deduction in whatever manner it determines appropriate so that, after such offsetting allocations are made, each Member's Capital Account balance is, to the extent possible, equal to the Capital Account balance such Member would have had if the Regulatory Allocations were not part of this Agreement and all such items were allocated pursuant to Sections 5.1 and 5.2 without regard to the Regulatory Allocations. (d) Special Allocation. Rodeo, Inc. shall be allocated any deductions arising from the delivery of Compensatory Units or the payment by Rodeo, Inc. or an affiliate of Rodeo, Inc. of transition bonuses pursuant to the Transition Agreement to employees of the Company. 5.4 Tax Allocations: Code Section 704(c). (a) Except as otherwise provided herein, for federal income tax purposes, (i) each item of income, gain, loss and deduction shall be allocated among the Members in the same manner as its correlative item of "book" income, gain, loss or deduction is allocated pursuant to Sections 5.1 and 5.2, and (ii) each tax credit shall be allocated to the Members in the same manner as the receipt or expenditure giving rise to such credit is allocated pursuant to Section 5.1 or 5.2. (b) In accordance with Code Section 704(c) and the Regulations thereunder, income, gain, loss and deduction with respect to any Property contributed to the capital of the Company shall, solely for tax purposes, be allocated among the Members so as to take account of any variation between the adjusted basis of such Property to the Company for federal income tax purposes and its initial Gross Asset Value (computed in accordance with the definition herein of "Gross Asset Value"). The Company shall use the remedial method of allocations specified in Treas. Reg. (S)1.704-3(d), or successor regulations, unless otherwise required by law, with respect to the initial contribution property set forth on Schedule I. (c) In the event the Gross Asset Value of any Company asset is adjusted pursuant to subparagraph (b) of the definition herein of "Gross Asset Value", subsequent allocations of income, gain, loss and deduction with respect to such asset shall take account of any variation between the adjusted basis of such asset for federal income tax purposes and its Gross Asset Value in the same manner as under Code Section 704(c) and the Regulations thereunder. (d) Any elections or other decisions relating to such allocations shall be made by the Board in any manner that reasonably reflects the purpose and intention of this Agreement; provided, that the Company, in the discretion of the Board, may make, or not make, "curative" or 15 EXECUTION COPY "remedial" allocations (within the meaning of the Regulations under Code Section 704(c)) including, but not limited to, "curative" allocations which offset the effect of the "ceiling rule" for a prior Taxable Year (within the meaning of Regulation Section 1.704-3(c)(3)(ii)) and "curative" allocations from disposition of contributed property (within the meaning of Regulation Section 1.704-3(c)(3)(iii)(B)). Allocations pursuant to this Section 5.4 are solely for purposes of federal, state, and local taxes and shall not affect, or in any way be taken into account in computing, any Member's Capital Account or share of Profits, Losses, other items, or distributions pursuant to any provision of this Agreement. 5.5 Change in Percentage Interests. In the event that the Members' Percentage Interests change during a Taxable Year, Profits and Losses shall be allocated taking into account the Members' varying Percentage Interests for such Taxable Year, determined on a daily, monthly or other basis as determined by the Board, using any permissible method under Code Section 706 and the Regulations thereunder. 5.6 Withholding. Each Member hereby authorizes the Company to withhold from income or distributions allocable to such Member and to pay over any taxes payable by the Company or any of its Affiliates as a result of such Member's participation in the Company; if and to the extent that the Company shall be required to withhold any such taxes, such Member shall be deemed for all purposes of this Agreement to have received a distribution from the Company as of the time such withholding is required to be paid, which distribution shall be deemed to be a distribution to such Member to the extent that the Member is then entitled to receive a distribution. To the extent that the aggregate of such distributions in respect of a Member for any period exceeds the distributions to which such Member is entitled for such period, the amount of such excess shall be considered a demand loan from the Company to such Member, with interest at the rate of interest per annum that Citibank, N.A., or any successor entity thereto, announces from time to time as its prime lending rate, which interest shall be treated as an item of Company income, until discharged by such Member by repayment, which may be made in the sole discretion of the Board out of distributions to which such Member would otherwise be subsequently entitled. The withholdings referred to in this Section 5.6 shall be made at the maximum applicable statutory rate under applicable tax law unless the Board shall have received an opinion of counsel or other evidence, satisfactory to the Board, to the effect that a lower rate is applicable, or that no withholding is applicable.

Thereafter, Directors shall be elected to serve annual terms expiring on the date of the annual meeting of Members following such election.

(g) Subject to Section 8.2(c), the provisions of this Section 8.2 are for the benefit of the Company Affiliates and the heirs, successors, assigns and administrators of the Company Affiliates and shall not be deemed to create any rights for the benefit of any other Persons.

("FIRST UNION") within 90 days from the date hereof; provided, however, any such Transfer under (i), (ii) or (iii) above shall comply with the terms of Section 9.1(b).

Except upon a Transfer of all of a Member's Membership Interest in accordance with this Section 9.1, no Member shall have the right to withdraw as a Member of the Company. (b) As a condition to a Transfer by a Member of all or any part of such Member's Membership Interest to a transferee as permitted under Section 9.1(a)(i) or (ii), (a "MEMBERSHIP TRANSFER"), such Member shall simultaneously Transfer (the "PARTNERSHIP TRANSFER") to such transferee an amount of such Member's Limited Partnership Interest equal to: (i) such Member's Limited Partnership Interest, multiplied by (ii) a percentage equal to (1) the Percentage Interest of such Member to be Transferred to such transferee, divided by (2) such Member's Percentage Interest immediately before such Transfer. If for any reason the Partnership Transfer does not occur simultaneously with the Membership Transfer, then the Membership Transfer and the Partnership Transfer shall be null and void and of no force and effect. 24 EXECUTION COPY (c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Member may pledge, mortgage or otherwise subject its Member Interest to any Encumbrance. (d) So long as it or its Permitted Transferee remains a Member, Sable may not effect a Sable Change of Control. (e) In the event that JCF resigns, other than for Good Reason, from his position as Chief Executive Officer of Rodeo, or is terminated for Cause, during the eighteen month period ending November 8, 2002, the occurrence of such event shall be deemed a Transfer to a Non-Qualifying Transferee of the Membership Interest of Sable Investments; provided; however, that fair market value, with respect to such deemed Transfer for purposes of Section 9.2, shall not be less than Sable's initial Capital Contribution. 9.2 Permitted Transferees. (a) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 9.8, each Member shall, subject to Section 9.1(b), have the right to Transfer (but not to substitute the transferee as a substitute Member in such Member's place, except in accordance with Section 9.3), by a written instrument, all or any part of a Member's Membership Interest to a Permitted Transferee. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, if the Permitted Transferee is such because it was an Affiliate of the transferring Member at the time of such Transfer or the Transfer was a Permitted Transfer under clause (a) of the definition of Permitted Transfer and, at any time after such Transfer, such Permitted Transferee ceases to be an Affiliate of such Member or such Transfer or such Permitted Transferee ceases to qualify under such clause (a) (a "NON-QUALIFYING TRANSFEREE"), such Transfer shall be deemed to not be a Permitted Transfer and shall be subject to Section 9.8. Pursuant to Section 9.8, such transferring Member, or such transferring Member's legal representative, shall deliver the First Refusal Notice promptly after the time when such transferee ceases to be an Affiliate of such transferring Member, or such Transfer or such Permitted Transferee ceases to qualify under clause (a) of the definition of Permitted Transfer, and such transferring Member shall otherwise comply with the terms of Section 9.8 with respect to such Transfer; provided, that the purchase price for such Transfer for purposes of Section 9.8 shall be an amount agreed upon by such transferring Member and a Majority in Interest (excluding such transferring Member's Percentage Interest) or, if such Member and such Majority in Interest cannot agree on a price within five (5) Business Days after delivery of the First Refusal Notice, such price shall be the fair market value of the Membership Interest transferred pursuant to the Transfer as of the date the transferee ceased to be an Affiliate of such transferring Member or such Transfer or such Permitted Transferee ceases to qualify under clause (a) of the definition of Permitted Transfer (such date, the "Non-Qualifying Date"), as determined at the Company's expense by a nationally recognized investment banking firm mutually selected by such transferring Member and a Majority in Interest (excluding such transferring Member's Percentage Interest). If such transferring Member and such Majority in Interest are unable, within ten (10) days after the expiration of such five (5) Business Day period, to mutually agree upon an investment banking firm, then each of such transferring Member and such Majority in Interest shall choose a nationally recognized investment banking firm and the two investment banking firms so chosen shall choose a third nationally recognized investment banking firm which shall determine the fair market value of the Membership Interest transferred pursuant to such Transfer at the Company's expense. The determination of fair market value 25 EXECUTION COPY shall be based on the value that a willing buyer with knowledge of all relevant facts would pay a willing seller for all the outstanding equity securities of the Company in connection with an auction for the Company as a going concern and shall not take into account any acquisitions made by the Company or its Affiliates or any other events subsequent to the Non-Qualifying Date and shall not be subject to any discount for a sale of a minority interest. If such transferring Member fails to comply with all the terms of Section 9.8, such Transfer shall be null and void and of no force and effect. No Non-Qualifying Transferee shall be entitled to receive any distributions from the Company on or after the Non-Qualifying Date and any distributions made in respect of the Membership Interests on or after the Non-Qualifying Date and held by such Non- Qualifying Members shall be paid to the Member who transferred such Membership Interest or otherwise to the rightful owner thereof as reasonably determined by the Board. (b) Unless and until admitted as a substitute Member pursuant to Section 9.3, a transferee of a Member's Membership Interest in whole or in part shall be an assignee with respect to such Transferred Membership Interest and shall not be entitled to participate in the management of the business and affairs of the Company or to become, or to exercise the rights of, a Member, including the right to appoint Directors, the right to vote, the right to require any information or accounting of the Company's business, or the right to inspect the Company's books and records. Such transferee shall only be entitled to receive, to the extent of the Membership Interest Transferred to such transferee, the share of distributions and profits, including distributions representing the return of Capital Contributions, to which the transferor would otherwise be entitled with respect to the Transferred Membership Interest. The transferor shall have the right to vote such Transferred Membership Interest until the transferee is admitted to the Company as a substitute Member with respect to the Transferred Membership Interest. 9.3 Substitute Members. No transferee of all or part of a Member's Membership Interest shall become a substitute Member in place of the transferor unless and until: (a) Such Transfer is in compliance with the terms of Section 9.1; (b) the transferee has executed an instrument in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Board accepting and adopting, and agreeing to be bound by, the terms and provisions of the Certificate and this Agreement; and (c) the transferee has caused to be paid all reasonable expenses of the Company in connection with the admission of the transferee as a substitute Member. Upon satisfaction of all the foregoing conditions with respect to a particular transferee, the President and Chief Executive Officer shall cause the books and records of the Company to reflect the admission of the transferee as a substitute Member to the extent of the Transferred Membership Interest held by such transferee. 9.4 Effect of Admission as a Substitute Member. A transferee who has become a substitute Member has, to the extent of the Transferred Membership Interest, all the rights, powers and benefits of, and is subject to the obligations, restrictions and liabilities of a Member under, the Certificate, this Agreement and the Act. Upon admission of a transferee as a substitute Member, the transferor of the Membership Interest so held by the substitute Member 26 EXECUTION COPY shall cease to be a Member of the Company to the extent of such Transferred Membership Interest. 9.5 Consent. Each Member hereby agrees that upon satisfaction of the terms and conditions of this Article 9 with respect to any proposed Transfer, the transferee may be admitted as a Member without any further action by a Member hereunder. 9.6 No Dissolution. If a Member Transfers all of its Membership Interest pursuant to this Article 9 and the transferee of such Membership Interest is admitted as a Member pursuant to Section 9.3, such Person shall be admitted to the Company as a Member effective on the effective date of the Transfer and the Company shall not dissolve pursuant to Section 10.1. 9.7 Additional Members. Subject to Section 3.2 and Section 7.9, any Person acceptable to the Board may become an additional Member of the Company for such consideration as the Board shall determine, provided that such additional Member complies with all the requirements of a transferee under Section 9.3(b) and (c). 9.8 Right of First Refusal. The Members shall have the following right of first refusal: (a) If at any time any of the Members (a "SELLING MEMBER") has received and wishes to accept a bona fide offer (the "OFFER") for cash from a third party (the "OFFEROR") for all or part of such Selling Member's Membership Interest (and a proportionate amount of such Selling Member's Limited Partnership Interest in accordance with Section 9.1(b)), such Selling Member shall give Notice thereof (the "FIRST REFUSAL NOTICE") to each of the other Members, other than any Non-Purchasing Members (as hereinafter defined), and the Company. The First Refusal Notice shall state the portion of the Selling Member's Membership Interest and Limited Partnership Interest that the Selling Member wishes to sell (the "OPTIONED INTEREST"), the price and all other material terms of the Offer, the name of the Offeror, and certification from the Selling Member affirming that the Offer is bona fide and that the description thereof is true and correct, and that the Offeror has stated that it will purchase the Optioned Interest if the rights of first refusal herein described are not exercised. (b) Each of the Members other than the Selling Member and any Non- Purchasing Member (the "NON-SELLING MEMBERS") shall have the right exercisable by Notice (an "ACCEPTANCE NOTICE") given to the Selling Member and the Company within twenty (20) days after receipt of the First Refusal Notice, to agree that it will purchase up to 100% of the Optioned Interest on the terms set forth in the First Refusal Notice; provided, however, if the Non-Selling Members in the aggregate desire to purchase more than 100% of the Optioned Interest, each such Non-Selling Member's right to purchase the Optioned Interest shall be reduced (pro rata based on the percentage of Optioned Interest for which such Non- Selling Member has exercised its right to purchase hereunder compared to all other Non-Selling Members, but not below such Non-Selling Member's Membership Interest as a percentage of the aggregate Membership Interests of all Non- Selling Members who have exercised their right to purchase) so that such Non- Selling Members purchase no more than 100% of the Optioned Interest. If a Non- Selling Member does not submit an Acceptance Notice within the twenty (20) day period set forth in this Section 9.8(b), such Non-Selling Member shall be deemed to have rejected the offer to purchase any portion of the Optioned Interest. 27 EXECUTION COPY (c) If the Non-Selling Members do not in the aggregate exercise the right to purchase all of the Optioned Interest by the expiration of the twenty (20) day period set forth in Section 9.8(b), then any Acceptance Notice shall be void and of no effect, and the Selling Member shall be entitled to complete the proposed sale at any time in the thirty (30) day period commencing on the date of the First Refusal Notice, but only upon the terms set forth in the First Refusal Notice. If no such sale is completed in such thirty (30) day period, the provisions hereof shall apply again to any proposed sale of the Optioned Interest. (d) If any Non-Selling Member exercises the right to purchase the Optioned Interest as provided herein and such Non-Selling Member(s) have elected to purchase all of the Optioned Interest, the purchase of such Optioned Interest shall be completed within the thirty (30) day period commencing on the date of delivery of the First Refusal Notice. If such Non-Selling Member does not consummate the Purchase of such Optioned Interest, (x) the Selling Member shall be entitled to all expenses of collection and (y) such Non-Selling Member shall be deemed a "NON-PURCHASING MEMBER" for the duration of this Agreement. 9.9 Registration Rights Agreement. Each of the Initial Members as of the date hereof and Rodeo, L.P. shall enter into a Registration Rights Agreement, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, on the date hereof. 9.10 Transfer to Management Entity. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, Rodeo, Inc. may, within ninety (90) days from the date hereof sell up to 2% of the total Membership Interests as of that date (the "MANAGEMENT SALE") to the Management Entity. The Management Sale shall be on substantially the same economic terms as the initial capital contribution of each of Sable, Kafu, E-Holdings, Strome, Raymond, Strome Hedgecap and the Management Entity. ARTICLE 10 DISSOLUTION AND TERMINATION 10.1 Events Causing Dissolution. (a) The Company shall be dissolved and its affairs wound up upon the first to occur of the following events: (i) The affirmative vote of a Super Majority in Interest to dissolve; (ii) The Transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company and the receipt and distribution of all the proceeds therefrom; or (iii) The entry of a decree of judicial dissolution pursuant to Section 18-802 of the Act. (b) The withdrawal, death, retirement, resignation, expulsion, bankruptcy or dissolution of any Member or the occurrence of any other event that terminates the continued membership of any Member in the Company shall not, in and of itself, cause the Company's dissolution. 28 EXECUTION COPY 10.2 Final Accounting. Upon dissolution and winding up of the Company, an accounting will be made of the accounts of the Company and each Member and of the Company's assets, liabilities and operations from the date of the last previous accounting to the date of such dissolution. 10.3 Distributions Following Dissolution and Termination. (a) Liquidating Trustee. Upon the dissolution of the Company, such party as is designated by a Majority in Interest will act as liquidating trustee of the Company (the "LIQUIDATING TRUSTEE") and proceed to wind up the business and affairs of the Company in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and applicable law. The Liquidating Trustee will use its reasonable best efforts to sell all Company assets (except cash) in the exercise of its best judgment under the circumstances then presented, that it deems in the best interest of the Members. The Liquidating Trustee will attempt to convert all assets of the Company to cash so long as it can do so consistently with prudent business practice. The Members and their respective designees will have the right to purchase any Company property to be sold on liquidation, provided that the terms on which such sale is made are no less favorable than would otherwise be available from third parties. The gains and losses from the sale of the Company assets, together with all other revenue, income, gain, deduction, expense, loss and credit during the period, will be allocated in accordance with Article 5. A reasonable amount of time shall be allowed for the period of winding up in light of prevailing market conditions and so as to avoid undue loss in connection with any sale of Company assets. This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect during the period of winding up. In addition, upon request of the Board and if the Liquidating Trustee determines that it would be imprudent to dispose of any non-cash assets of the Company, such assets may be distributed in kind to the Members in lieu of cash, proportionately to their right to receive cash distributions hereunder. (b) Accounting. The Liquidating Trustee will then cause proper accounting to be made of the Capital Account of each Member, including recognition of gain or loss on any asset to be distributed in kind as if such asset had been sold for consideration equal to the fair market value of the asset at the time of the distribution. The Members intend that the allocations provided herein shall result in Capital Account balances in proportion to the Percentage Interests of the Members. (c) Liquidating Distributions. In settling accounts after dissolution of the Company, the assets of the Company shall be paid to creditors of the Company and to the Members in the following order: (i) to creditors of the Company (including Members) in the order of priority as provided by law whether by payment or the making of reasonable provision for payment thereof, and in connection therewith there shall be withheld such reasonable reserves for contingent, conditioned or unconditioned liabilities as the Liquidating Trustee in its reasonable discretion deems adequate, such reserves (or balances thereof) to be held and distributed in such manner and at such times as the Liquidating Trustee, in its discretion, deems reasonably advisable; provided, however, that such amounts be maintained in a separate bank account and that any amounts in such bank account remaining after three years be distributed to 29 EXECUTION COPY the Members or their successors and assigns as if such amount had been available for distribution under Section 10.3(c)(ii); and then (ii) to the Members in proportion to the positive balances of their Capital Accounts, as fully adjusted pursuant to Section 3.4, including adjustment for all gains and losses actually or deemed realized upon disposition or distribution of assets in connection with the liquidation and winding up of the Company. (iii) Any distribution to the Members in liquidation of the Company shall be made by the later of the end of the taxable year in which the liquidation occurs or 90 days after the date of such liquidation. For purposes of the preceding sentence, the term "liquidation" shall have the same meaning as set forth in Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii) as in effect at such time and liquidating distributions shall be further deemed to be made pursuant to this Agreement upon the event of a liquidation as defined in such Regulation for which no actual liquidation occurs with a deemed recontribution by the Members of such deemed liquidating distributions to the continuing Company pursuant to this Agreement. (d) The provisions of this Agreement, including, without limitation, this Section 10.3, are intended solely to benefit the Members and, to the fullest extent permitted by law, shall not be construed as conferring any benefit upon any creditor of the Company, and no such creditor of the Company shall be a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement, and no Member or Director shall have any duty or obligation to any creditor of the Company to issue any call for capital pursuant to this Agreement. 10.4 Termination of the Company. The Company shall terminate when all assets of the Company, after payment or due provision for all debts, liabilities and obligations of the Company, shall have been distributed to the Members in the manner provided for in this Article 10, and the Certificate shall have been canceled in the manner required by the Act. 10.5 No Action for Dissolution. The Members acknowledge that irreparable damage would be done to the goodwill and reputation of the Company if any Member should bring an action in court to dissolve the Company under circumstances where dissolution is not required by Section 10.1. Accordingly, except where the Board has failed to cause the liquidation of the Company as required by Section 10.1 and except as specifically provided in Section 18-802, each Member hereby to the fullest extent permitted by law waives and renounces his right to initiate legal action to seek dissolution of the Company or to seek the appointment of a receiver or trustee to wind up the affairs of the Company, except in the cases of fraud, violation of law, bad faith, gross negligence, willful misconduct or willful violation of this Agreement.

Any Member that receives a notice of an administrative proceeding under Section 6233 of the Code relating to the Company shall promptly provide Notice to the Tax Matters Member of the treatment of any Company item on such Member's Federal income tax return that is or may be inconsistent with the treatment of that item on the Company's return.
