                        MASTER EQUIPMENT LEASE AGREEMENT
                     Agreement No. 113 Dated: August 7, 1995


LESSOR:   LIGHTHOUSE CAPITAL PARTNERS, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership 
          ('Lessor'), 100 Drakes Landing Road, Suite 260, Greenbrae, 
          California 94904

LESSEE:   SAGENT TECHNOLOGY, INC., a California corporation ('Lessee'),

ADDRESS:  750 Menlo Avenue, Suite 300, Menlo Park, California 94025.


        IN CONSIDERATION of the mutual covenants contained herein, the parties
agree as follows:

        1. LEASE. Lessor leases to Lessee and Lessee leases from Lessor the
personal property described in each Equipment Schedule executed pursuant hereto,
subject to the terms and conditions of this Master Equipment Lease Agreement
('Master Lease') and the applicable Lease Line Schedule (defined below). The
'Equipment' (as defined in the Lease Line Schedule) is being leased for
commercial or business purposes only, and not for personal, home, or family
purposes. The parties agree that each Lease is a 'finance lease' under the
Uniform Commercial Code (as in effect in the State of California during the term
of the Lease and referred to hereafter as the 'UCC').

        2. LEASE LINE SCHEDULE. 'Lease Line Schedule' means a Lease Line
Schedule in the form of EXHIBIT A, signed by Lessor and Lessee and incorporating
by reference the terms and provisions of this Master Lease.

        3. EQUIPMENT SCHEDULES. 'Equipment Schedule' means an Equipment Schedule
in the form of EXHIBIT B, signed by Lessor and Lessee and incorporating, by
reference, the terms and provisions of this Master Lease and the applicable
Lease Line Schedule. Each Equipment Schedule shall constitute a separate and
independent lease (a 'Lease'); the original of such Lease shall consist of the
signed Equipment Schedule and a copy of the Master Lease and applicable Lease
Line Schedule. Capitalized terms used, but not defined, in this Master Lease
have the meanings given to such terms in the applicable Lease Line Schedule or
Equipment Schedule, as the case may be.

        4.     TERM AND RENTALS.

               (a) ACCEPTANCE. The Lease shall commence with respect to
Equipment described on the Equipment Schedule upon the Acceptance Date. The
'Acceptance Date' shall be the date upon which Lessee executes a Delivery and
Acceptance Certificate in the form of EXHIBIT C.

               (b) TERM AND PAYMENT OF RENT. The lease term for the Equipment
shall be the 'Lease Term' set forth in the Equipment Schedule which shall
commence on the 'Commencement Date' (as defined in the Lease Line Schedule).
Lessee agrees to pay to Lessor the 'Rental Payments' for the Lease Term, in the
amounts and at the times set forth in the Equipment Schedule.

               (c) INTERIM PERIOD. If the Acceptance Date does not fall on the
Commencement Date, then Lessee agrees to pay to Lessor 'Interim Rent' for the
period commencing on the Acceptance Date through and including the day preceding
the Commencement Date (the 'Interim Period'). The Interim Rent payment for the
Interim Period shall accrue at the 'Interim Rate' (as defined in the Lease Line
Schedule) and shall be due and payable in full on the Commencement Date.

               (d) LEASE TERMINATION. Lessee may terminate the Lease at the
expiration of the Lease Term or any renewal term (the 'Lease Termination') by
submitting to Lessor a Notice of Election in the form of EXHIBIT D. If a Notice
of Election is not submitted by Lessee to Lessor during the 'Advance Notice
Period' (as defined in the Lease Line Schedule), then the Lease Term or any
renewal Term will be automatically extended for an additional period equal to
the 'Automatic Extension Period' (as defined in the Lease Line Schedule). The
Lease will continue to automatically extend until Lessee submits to Lessor a
Notice of Election. The Lease may only be 


                                       1


terminated as expressly provided in this Section, in the applicable Lease Line
Schedule or in the applicable Equipment Schedule. Lessee agrees to continue
paying rent for the Equipment in the amount of the Rental Payment set forth in
the Equipment Schedule until the later of (i) the expiration of the Lease Term,
any renewal term and any Automatic Extension Period and (ii) either (A) the
purchase option price is paid pursuant to Section 6(a), or (B) a mutually agreed
renewal of the Lease takes effect pursuant to Section 6(b), or (C) the Equipment
is returned in the manner and condition prescribed in Section 6(c), in each case
after delivery of a Notice of Election.

               (e) NET LEASE. Each Equipment Schedule shall be a net lease, and
Lessee's obligation to pay all rent and other sums thereunder shall be absolute
and unconditional, and shall not be subject to any abatement, reduction,
set-off, defense, counterclaims, interruption, deferment or recoupment, for any
reason whatsoever.

        5. LATE FEE. Lessee shall pay a late charge on any rent payments or
other sums due hereunder which are past due, in the amount specified in the
Lease Line Schedule, payable on demand. In addition, interest shall accrue daily
at the 'Default Rate' (as defined in the Lease Line Schedule), or if such rate
exceeds the maximum rate allowed by law, then at such maximum rate, and shall be
payable on demand.

        6. LEASE TERMINATION OPTIONS. Upon Lease Termination, Lessee will have
the option to purchase the Equipment, renew the term of the Lease, or return the
Equipment to Lessor, as set forth below. Lessee shall specify its election of a
Lease Termination Option in the Notice of Election.

               (a) PURCHASE OPTION. If Lessee exercises the option to purchase,
then, provided no Event of Default has occurred and is then continuing, Lessee
shall at the expiration of the Lease Term, renewal term or extension, as the
case may be, purchase the Equipment. The purchase price shall be the Equipment's
then fair market value ('FMV'). FMV, as applied to a purchase option, shall be
determined by Lessor based on the price a willing buyer would pay and a willing
seller would accept (neither buyer nor seller being under compulsion to act) for
the Equipment as installed and in use, giving due consideration to its
condition, utility, revenue-producing capability, and replacement costs. If
Lessee fails to agree with Lessor's good faith determination of the FMV, Lessee
shall nevertheless pay Lessor's invoice and provide Lessor with a written
request for a determination of the FMV with or prior to such payment. Within ten
(10) days after such request Lessor and Lessee shall agree on an appraiser to
determine the FMV or, lacking such agreement, shall each tender the name of an
appraiser. The appraiser(s) shall, within thirty (30) days, either agree on the
FMV or select a third appraiser, to form a committee to determine the FMV.
Determination by the appraiser(s) shall be final and binding on both parties.
Within fifteen (15) days after such determination, Lessor shall refund any
excess received over the FMV, and/or Lessee shall pay any additional amount of
the FMV above the amount previously paid. Each party shall bear the fees and
expenses of any appraiser which it names and share equally the fees and expenses
of any appraiser(s) jointly selected. If the appraised FMV is within 5% of the
amount invoiced by Lessor, then Lessee shall pay all appraiser fees and
expenses. The purchase option price shall be paid not later than the last day of
the Lease Term.

               (b) RENEWAL. If Lessee exercises the option to renew this Lease,
such renewal shall be upon the terms and conditions of this Master Lease and the
applicable Lease Line Schedule, for a rental period and rental amount to be
agreed upon by Lessee and Lessor.

               (c) RETURN. If the Notice of Election specifies return of the
Equipment, Lessee at its own risk and expense (i) will immediately return the
Equipment to Lessor in the same condition as when delivered, ordinary wear and
tear excepted, at such location as Lessor shall designate; and (ii) will, on
request from Lessor, obtain from the Equipment supplier (or other maintenance
service supplier approved by Lessor) a certificate stating that the Equipment
qualifies for continued maintenance service at the standard rates and terms then
in effect.

        7.     USE; MAINTENANCE.

               (a) Lessee, at its expense, shall make all necessary site
preparations and cause the Equipment to be operated in accordance with any
applicable operating manuals and manufacturer's instructions. Notwithstanding
any transfer or assignment by Lessor and provided Lessee is not in default
hereunder, Lessee shall have the right to quietly possess and use the Equipment
as provided herein without interference by Lessor, its assigns or any other
third party claiming through or under Lessor.

                                       2


               (b) Lessee shall effect and bear the expense of all necessary
repair, maintenance, operation and replacements required to be made to maintain
the Equipment in good condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted, and to
comply with all domestic and international laws to which the use and operation
of the Equipment may be or become subject. All replacement Equipment and parts
furnished in connection with such maintenance or repair shall immediately become
the property of Lessor and part of the Equipment for all purposes hereof. All
such maintenance, repair and replacement services shall be immediately paid for
and discharged by Lessee with the result that no lien under any applicable laws
will attach to the Equipment as a result of the performance of such services or
the provision of any such material.

        8. INSURANCE. Lessee shall obtain and maintain for the Lease Term (and
any renewal term or extension), at its own expense, (a) 'all risk' insurance
against loss or damage to the Equipment, (b) commercial general liability
insurance (including contractual liability, products liability and completed
operations coverage) reasonably satisfactory to Lessor, and (c) such other
insurance against such other risks of loss and with such terms, as shall in each
case be reasonably satisfactory to or reasonably required by Lessor (as to
carriers, amounts and otherwise). The amount of the 'all risk' insurance shall
be greater than or equal to the Stipulated Loss Value (as defined in Section 9
below) of all Equipment outstanding under the Lease Line Schedule, and must
otherwise be reasonably satisfactory to Lessor as of each anniversary date of
this Lease. Any increase in the amount of such insurance coverage, other than
'all risk', reasonably requested by Lessor shall be put into effect on the next
succeeding renewal date of such insurance.

        Each 'all risk' policy shall: (i) name Lessor as sole loss payee with
respect to the Equipment, (ii) provide for each insurer's waiver of its right of
subrogation against Lessor and Lessee, and (iii) provide that such insurance
shall not be invalidated by any action of, or breach of warranty by, Lessee of a
provision of any of its insurance policies, and shall waive set-off,
counterclaim or offset against Lessor.

        Each liability policy shall name Lessor as an additional insured and
provide that such insurance shall have cross-liability and severability of
interest endorsements (which shall not increase the aggregate policy limits of
Lessee's insurance).

        All insurance policies shall provide that Lessee's insurance shall be
primary without a right of contribution of Lessor's insurance, if any, or any
obligation on the part of Lessor to pay premiums of Lessee, and shall contain a
clause requiring the insurer to give Lessor at least 30 days' prior written
notice of its cancellation (other than cancellation for non-payment for which 10
days' notice shall be sufficient. Lessee shall on or prior to the date of
Equipment Schedule No. 1 and prior to each policy renewal, furnish to Lessor
certificates of insurance or other evidence satisfactory to Lessor that such
insurance coverage is in effect. Lessee further agrees to give Lessor prompt
notice of any damage to, or loss of, the Equipment, or any part thereof.

        9. LOSS OR DAMAGE. If any items of Equipment shall become lost, stolen,
destroyed, or damaged beyond repair for any reason, or in the event of
condemnation, confiscation, seizure or requisition of title to or use of such
items (collectively, an 'Event of Loss'), Lessee shall promptly pay to Lessor
the applicable Stipulated Loss Value of the Equipment subject to the Event of
Loss. Upon payment by Lessee of the Stipulated Loss Value, Lessor will transfer
to Lessee, 'AS IS, WHERE IS, WITHOUT RECOURSE, REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY,' all
of Lessor's right, title and interest, if any, in such items of Equipment. The
'Stipulated Loss Value' payable by Lessee under this Lease shall be an amount
equal to the product of (a) Lessor's Cost of the affected Equipment and (b) the
percentage set forth in the table attached to the applicable Lease Line Schedule
as ANNEX A opposite the Rental Payment number next following the Event of Loss.
Stipulated Loss Values and Rental Payments shall not be prorated.

        10.    TITLE, INSPECTION AND LOCATION.

               (a) TITLE. Lessor and Lessee confirm their intent that title to
the Equipment shall remain in Lessor (or its successors and assigns)
exclusively. If requested by Lessor, Lessee will affix plates or markings on the
Equipment and on any operating manuals and manufacturer's instructions
indicating the interests of Lessor and its assigns therein, and Lessee will not
allow any other indicia of ownership or other interest in the Equipment to 


                                       3


be placed on the Equipment. Lessee shall not sell, assign, grant a security
interest in, sublet, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise encumber or suffer a lien
upon or against this Lease or the Equipment.

               (b) INSPECTION. Lessor (through any of its officers, employees or
agents) shall have the right to inspect the Equipment during regular business
hours, with reasonable notice, and in compliance with Lessee's reasonable
security procedures; provided, that such inspections will be conducted no more
often than every six (6) months unless an Event of Default, or event which, with
notice or lapse of time or both, would become an Event of Default, has occurred
and is continuing.

               (c) LOCATION. In the case of Equipment other than mobile
Equipment, Lessee may move such Equipment from the installation address shown on
the Equipment Schedule (or any other location for which Lessee has complied with
this provision) only if (i) the new location is within the continental United
States, and (ii) Lessee gives at least 30 days' prior written notice of the
relocation and provides UCC-1 financing statements, landlord waivers or such
other documentation as Lessor reasonably requests to protect its interest in the
Equipment. In the case of mobile equipment (including, without limitation,
lap-top computers), Lessee agrees to obtain from the person using such mobile
Equipment and deliver to Lessor, an Acknowledgment in the form of EXHIBIT F.

               (d) Lessee shall keep copies of all operating manuals and
manufacturer's instructions with respect to the Equipment in good condition at
the locations specified in Section 10(c).

        11. LESSEE'S REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND WAIVERS. Upon execution of
the Master Lease and each Equipment Schedule, Lessee warrants and represents the
following:

               (a) Lessee is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and
in good standing under the laws of its state of incorporation. Lessee has full
power and authority and all necessary licenses and permits to carry on its
business as presently conducted, to own or hold under lease its properties and
to enter into this Master Lease, the Lease Line Schedule and each Equipment
Schedule and to perform its obligations thereunder; and Lessee is duly qualified
to do business as a foreign corporation and is in good standing in each
jurisdiction in which the character of its properties or the nature of its
business or the performance of its obligations under this Master Lease, the
Lease Line Schedule and any Equipment Schedule requires such qualification,
except for such jurisdictions in which failure to qualify would not have a
material adverse effect on Lessee.

               (b) The execution and delivery by Lessee of this Master Lease,
the Lease Line Schedule and each Equipment Schedule and the performance by
Lessee of its obligations thereunder have been duly authorized by all necessary
corporate action on the part of Lessee; and do not and will not contravene the
provisions of, or constitute a default (either with or without notice or lapse
of time, or both) under, or result in the creation of any lien upon, the
Equipment or any property of Lessee under any indenture, mortgage, contract or
other instrument to which Lessee is a party or by which Lessee or its properties
is bound.

               (c) No consent or approval of, giving of notice to, registration
with, or taking of any other action by, any state, federal, foreign or other
governmental commission, agency or regulatory authority or any other person or
entity is required for the consummation or performance by Lessee of the
transactions contemplated under this Master Lease, the Lease Line Schedule and
each Equipment Schedule.

               (d) This Master Lease, the Lease Line Schedule and each Equipment
Schedule, when executed by Lessee, constitute legal, valid and binding
agreements of Lessee enforceable against Lessee in accordance with their terms,
except as limited by any bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, or other
similar laws of general application affecting the enforcement of creditor or
Lessor rights.

               (e) There are no actions, suits or proceedings pending or
threatened against or affecting Lessee or any property of Lessee in any court,
before any arbitrator of any kind or before or by any federal state, municipal
or other government department, commission, board, bureau, agency or
instrumentality (collectively 'Governmental Body'), which, if adversely
determined, would materially adversely affect the business, financial condition,
assets, or operations of Lessee, or adversely affect the ability of Lessee to
perform its obligations under 


                                       4


this Master Lease, the Lease Line Schedule and each Equipment Schedule; and
Lessee is not in default with respect to any order of any court, arbitrator or
Governmental Body or with respect to any material loan agreement, debt
instrument or contract with a supplier or customer of Lessee, except as
disclosed in writing to Lessor.

               (f) To the extent permitted by applicable law, Lessee waives any
and all rights and remedies to: (i) cancel this Lease; (ii) repudiate this
Lease; (iii) reject the Equipment; (iv) revoke acceptance of the Equipment; (v)
recover damages from Lessor for any breaches of warranty or for any other
reason; (vi) claim a security interest in the Equipment in Lessee's possession
or control for any reason; (vii) deduct from Rental Payments all or any part of
any claimed damages resulting from Lessor's default, if any, under this Lease;
(viii) accept partial delivery of the Equipment; (ix) 'cover' by making any
purchase or lease of or contract to purchase or lease equipment in substitution
for Equipment designated in the Lease; (x) recover any direct, general, special,
incidental, indirect, exemplary or consequential damages, for any reason
whatsoever; and (xi) obtain specific performance, replevin, detinue,
sequestration, claim and delivery or the like for any Equipment identified to
this Lease. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Lessee also waives any
rights now or hereafter conferred by statute or otherwise which may require
Lessor to sell, lease or otherwise use any Equipment in mitigation of Lessor's
damages or which may otherwise limit or modify any of Lessor's rights or
remedies.

        12. ASSIGNMENT BY LESSOR. LESSEE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT LESSOR MAY SELL,
ASSIGN, GRANT A SECURITY INTEREST IN, OR OTHERWISE TRANSFER ALL OR ANY PART OF
ITS RIGHTS, TITLE AND INTEREST IN THIS LEASE AND THE EQUIPMENT WITHOUT NOTICE TO
OR CONSENT OF LESSEE. Upon Lessor's written notice to Lessee that this Lease, or
the right to the Rental Payments hereunder, have been assigned, Lessee shall, if
requested, pay directly to Lessor's assignee without abatement, deduction or
set-off all amounts which become due hereunder. Lessee waives and agrees it will
not assert against Lessor's assignee any counterclaim or set-off in any action
for rent under the Lease. Upon the assignment of this Lease, Lessor's assignee
shall have and be entitled to exercise any and all rights and remedies (but none
of the obligations) of lessor hereunder, and all references herein to Lessor
shall include Lessor's assignee. Lessee acknowledges that any assignment or
transfer by Lessor does not materially change Lessee's duties or obligations
under this Lease nor materially increase the burdens or risks imposed on Lessee.

        13. ASSIGNMENT BY LESSEE. LESSEE MAY NOT, WITHOUT LESSOR'S PRIOR WRITTEN
CONSENT, (I) ASSIGN THIS LEASE, WHETHER BY OPERATION OF LAW OR OTHERWISE, OR
SUBLEASE THE EQUIPMENT OR ANY PART THEREOF OR (II) ASSIGN, GRANT A SECURITY
INTEREST IN, OR OTHERWISE TRANSFER ALL OR ANY PART OF ITS RIGHTS, TITLE AND
INTEREST IN AND TO THIS LEASE OR THE EQUIPMENT. In the event Lessee makes an
assignment, sublease or other transfer (to which Lessor has consented), Lessee
shall not thereby be relieved of its duties and obligations hereunder, for which
it shall remain fully responsible and liable (independent of its assignee).

        14.    TAXES.

               (a) Lessee shall comply with all applicable federal, state,
local, foreign and international laws, regulations and orders relating to this
Lease. Lessee assumes liability for, and shall pay when due, and on a net
after-tax basis shall indemnify and defend Lessor against, all federal, state,
local, foreign and international fees, taxes and government charges (including,
without limitation, interest and penalties) of any nature imposed upon or in any
way relating to Lessor, Lessee, any item of Equipment or this Lease, except
federal, state and local taxes on or measured by Lessor's net income (other than
any such tax which is in substitution for or relieves Lessee from the payment of
taxes it would otherwise be obligated to pay to or reimburse Lessor for as
herein provided). Lessee shall at its expense file when due with the appropriate
authorities any and all tax and similar returns and reports required to be filed
with respect thereto or, if requested by Lessor, notify Lessor of all such
requirements and furnish Lessor with all information required for Lessor to
effect such filings, which filings shall also be at Lessee's expense. Any fees,
taxes or other charges paid by Lessor upon failure of Lessee to make such
payments shall at Lessor's option become immediately due from Lessee to Lessor.

               (b) This Lease has been entered into on the assumption that
Lessor shall be entitled to all deductions, credits, and other tax benefits as
are provided in the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, including amendments as may
occur (the 'Code'), to an owner of property including, without limitation,
depreciation 


                                       5


deductions and interest deductions with respect to any debts incurred to finance
the purchase of the Equipment. If, as a result of any acts, omissions or
misrepresentations by Lessee or as a result of any changes in the Code, the
regulations issued thereunder or the administrative or judicial interpretations,
Lessor's projected after-tax economic return resulting from ownership and lease
of the Equipment is reduced, then Lessee's Rental Payments shall be increased in
an amount (based on Lessor's reasonable calculations) sufficient to provide the
same net after-tax economic return as if such acts or omissions or changes had
not occurred. Appropriate increases shall also be made in the applicable
Stipulated Loss Values for this Lease. In the event the Equipment is sold by
Lessor to another party, the net after-tax economic returns considered shall be
those of such other party.

        15. EQUIPMENT WARRANTIES. Lessee acknowledges that (i) Lessee has
selected the supplier of the Equipment, (ii) Lessor acquired the goods or the
right to possession and use of the goods in connection with the Lease, and (iii)
Lessee received a copy of the contract by which Lessor acquired the Equipment or
the right to possession and use of the Equipment before signing the Lease.
LESSOR MAKES NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY
OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE WITH RESPECT TO THE EQUIPMENT AND DISCLAIMS THE
SAME. Lessor shall have no liability for any damages, whether direct, indirect,
general, special, incidental, exemplary or consequential, incurred by Lessee as
a result of any defect or malfunction of the Equipment. Lessee shall look solely
to the Equipment supplier for any and all claims related to the Equipment.
Lessor assigns to Lessee, for and during the Lease Term, any warranty on the
Equipment provided by the supplier. Lessor and Lessee agree that all limitations
on remedies and liability contained in this Lease represent a reasonable
allocation of risks that is part of the fundamental bargain between the parties.

        16. EVENTS OF DEFAULT. An Event of Default shall occur if Lessee (i)
fails to pay any Rental Payment or other payment required under the Lease when
due and such failure continues for a period of five (5) days after written
notice from Lessor; or (ii) fails to perform or observe any other covenant,
condition or agreement to be performed or observed by it or breaches any
provision contained in the Lease or in any other document furnished to Lessor in
connection herewith, and such failure or breach continues for a period of thirty
(30) days after written notice from Lessor; or (iii) without Lessor's consent,
attempts to assign this Lease or sell, transfer, encumber, part with possession,
or sublet any item of Equipment; or (iv) makes any representation or warranty
herein or in any document furnished by Lessee in connection herewith, which
shall have been materially false or inaccurate when made or at the time to which
such representation or warranty relates; or (v) shall commit an act of
bankruptcy or become insolvent or bankrupt or make an assignment for the benefit
of creditors or consent to the appointment of a Trustee or Receiver or either
shall be appointed for Lessee or for a substantial part of its property without
its consent, or bankruptcy reorganization, or insolvency proceedings shall be
instituted by or against Lessee, and, if instituted against Lessee, shall not be
vacated or dismissed within sixty (60) days. Any Event of Default shall be
deemed material and a substantial impairment of Lessor's interests for the
purposes of this Lease, the UCC, and any other applicable law.

        17. REMEDIES. Upon the occurrences of any Events of Default and at any
time thereafter, provided such Event of Default is then continuing, Lessor may,
in its discretion, do any one or more of the following:

               (a) cancel any or all Leases which reference this Master Lease or
the Lease Line Schedule, upon notice to Lessee;

               (b) recover any accrued and unpaid Rental Payments and other
amounts which are due and owing under the Leases so canceled on the Rental
Payment Date immediately preceding the date on which Lessor obtains possession
of the Equipment (or such earlier date as judgment is entered in favor of
Lessor) (the 'Determination Date'), plus interest at the Default Rate;

               (c) with or without canceling this Lease, recover (i) such
Stipulated Loss Value as of the Rental Payment Date immediately preceding the
Determination Date, and (ii) the amount of any loss or reduction of tax benefits
which Lessor anticipated it would receive if the Lease continued for its full
Lease Term;

               (d) recover any amounts due under any indemnity then
determinable, plus interest at the Default Rate;

                                       6


               (e) require that Lessee provide the return and certification of
the Equipment in accordance with Section 6(c) hereof;

               (f) enter the premises where such Equipment is located and take
immediate possession of and remove the same, all without liability to Lessor or
its agents for such entry;

               (g) sell any or all of the Equipment at public or private sale,
with or without notice to Lessee or advertisement, or otherwise dispose of,
hold, use, operate, lease to others or keep idle such Equipment, all free and
clear of any rights of Lessee and without any duty to account to Lessee for such
action or inaction or for any proceeds with respect thereto; and

               (h) exercise any other right or remedy which may be available to
it under the UCC or other applicable law including the right to recover damages
for the breach hereof.

        In addition, Lessee shall be liable for, and reimburse Lessor for, all
reasonable legal fees and all commercially reasonable costs and expenses
incurred by Lessor as a result of the foregoing defaults or the exercise of
Lessor's remedies, including without limitation recovering possession of the
Equipment, selling or leasing the Equipment (including broker's and sales
representative's fees and commissions), and placing any Equipment in the
condition and obtaining the certificate required by Section 6(c) hereof. No
remedy referred to in this Section is intended to be exclusive, but each shall
be cumulative and in addition to any other remedy referred to above or otherwise
available to Lessor at law or in equity. No express or implied waiver by Lessor
of any default shall constitute a waiver of any other default by Lessor, or a
waiver of any of Lessor's rights.

        18. INDEMNIFICATION. Lessee assumes liability for, and shall pay when
due, and shall indemnify, reimburse and hold each Indemnified Person (defined
below) harmless from and against all Claims (defined below), directly or
indirectly relating to or arising out of the acquisition, use, manufacture,
purchase, shipment, transportation, delivery, installation, lease or sublease,
ownership, operation, possession, control, storage, return or condition of any
item of Equipment (regardless of whether such item of Equipment is at the time
in the possession of Lessee), the falsity of any non-tax representation or
warranty of Lessee or Lessee's failure to comply with the terms of the Lease
during the Lease Term. The foregoing indemnity shall cover, without limitation,
(i) any Claim in connection with a design or other defect (latent or patent) in
any item of Equipment, (ii) any Claim for infringement of any patent, copyright,
trademark or other intellectual property right, or (iii) any Claim for
negligence or strict or absolute liability in tort; provided, however, that
Lessee shall not indemnify Lessor for any liability incurred by Lessor as a
direct and sole result of Lessor's gross negligence or willful misconduct.

        'Claim' means all liabilities, losses, damages, actions, suits, demands,
claims of any kind and nature (including, without limitation, claims relating to
environmental discharge, cleanup or compliance), and all costs and expenses
whatsoever to the extent they may be incurred or suffered by an Indemnified
Person in connection therewith (including, without limitation, reasonable
attorneys' fees and expenses), fines, penalties (and other charges of applicable
governmental authorities), licensing fees relating to any item of Equipment,
damage to or loss of use of property (including, without limitation,
consequential or special damages to third parties or damages to Lessee's
property), or bodily injury to or death of any person (including, without
limitation, any agent or employee of Lessee).

        'Indemnified Person' means Lessor (including without limitation, each of
its partners) and each of their respective successors, assigns, agents,
officers, directors, shareholders, partners, servants, agents and employees.

        Such indemnities shall continue in full force and effect,
notwithstanding the expiration or termination of this Lease. Upon Lessor's
written demand, Lessee shall assume and diligently conduct, at its sole cost and
expense, the entire defense of any Indemnified Person against any indemnified
Claim described in this SECTION 18. Lessee shall not settle or compromise any
Claim against or involving Lessor without first obtaining Lessor's written
consent thereto, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Lessee shall
give Lessor prompt notice of any occurrence, event or condition in connection
with which Lessor may be entitled to indemnification hereunder. The provisions
of this SECTION 18 are in addition to, and not in limitation of, the provisions
of SECTION 14(b).
