       operational features, to Sagent's current published specifications when
       installed and will be free of defects which substantially affect system
       performance.

(b)    The Licensee must notify Sagent in writing, within ninety (90) days of
       delivery of the Software to the Licensee (not including delivery of any
       subsequent modifications to the Software), of its claim of any such
       defect. If the Software is found defective by Sagent, Sagent's sole
       obligation under this warranty is to use reasonable commercial efforts to
       attempt to correct or work around errors, replace defective media or
       replace the Software with functionally equivalent Software.

(c)    Sagent warrants that the Software shall not cause erroneous date
       calculations due to miscalculations by the Software as a result of the
       year 2000 date change. Sagent further warrants that the Software includes
       the ability to manage and manipulate all data involving dates or date
       fields which include indication of century to ensure year 2000
       compatibility.

(d)    THE ABOVE IS A LIMITED WARRANTY AND IT IS THE ONLY WARRANTY MADE BY
       SAGENT. SAGENT MAKES AND LICENSEE RECEIVES NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR
       IMPLIED, AND THERE ARE EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED ALL WARRANTIES OF
       MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SAGENT SHALL HAVE
       NO LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR
       CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES EVEN IF IT HAS BEEN
       ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE STATED EXPRESS WARRANTY
       IS IN LIEU OF ALL LIABILITIES OR OBLIGATIONS OF SAGENT FOR DAMAGES
       ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE DELIVERY, USE, OR PERFORMANCE OF
       THE SOFTWARE SYSTEMS.

(e)    If any modifications are made to the Software by Licensee during the
       warranty period, this warranty shall immediately be terminated.
       Correction for difficulties or defects traceable to Licensee's errors or
       systems changes shall be billed at Sagent's standard time and material
       charges.

(f)    Licensee agrees that Sagent's liability arising out of contract,
       negligence, strict liability in tort or warranty shall not exceed any
       amounts payable by Licensee for the Software identified above.

10.    INDEMNITY

Sagent, at its own expense, will defend any action 


                             Sagent Technology, Inc.
                           Software License Agreement
                                    End User
                                                                          Page 2

brought against Licensee to the extent that it is based on a claim that any
software system used within the scope of this License Agreement infringes any
U.S. patents, copyrights, license or other property right, provided that Sagent
is immediately notified in writing of such claim. Sagent shall have the right to
control the defense of all such claims, lawsuits and other proceedings. In no
event shall Licensee settle any such claim, lawsuit or proceeding without
Sagent's prior written approval.

If, as a result of any claim of infringement against any patent, copyright,
license or other property right, Sagent is enjoined from using the Software, or
if Sagent believes that the Software is likely to become the subject of a claim
of infringement, Sagent at its option and expense may procure the right for
Licensee to continue to use the Software, or replace or modify the Software so
as to make it non-infringing. If neither of these two options is reasonably
practicable Sagent may discontinue the license granted herein on one month's
written notice and refund to Licensee the unamortized portion of the license
fees hereunder (based on four years straight line depreciation, such
depreciation to commence on the date of this Agreement). The foregoing states
the entire liability of Sagent with respect to infringement of any copyrights or
patents by the Software or any parts thereof.

11.    TERMINATION

Sagent shall have the right to terminate this agreement and license(s) granted
herein:

(a)    Upon ten days' written notice in the event that Licensee, its officers or
       employees violates any provision of this License Agreement including, but
       not limited to, confidentiality and payment.

(b)    In the event of termination by reason of the Licensee's failure to comply
       with any part of this agreement, or upon any act which shall give rise to
       Sagent's right to terminate, Sagent shall have the right, at any time, to
       terminate the license(s) and take immediate possession of the Software
       and documentation and all copies wherever located. Within five (5) days
       after termination of the license(s), Licensee will return to Sagent the
       Software in the form provided by Sagent or as modified by the Licensee,
       or upon request by Sagent to destroy the Software and all copies, and
       certify in writing that they have been destroyed. Termination under this
       paragraph shall not relieve Licensee of its obligations regarding
       confidentiality of the Software.

(c)    Without limiting any of the above provisions, in the event of termination
       as a result of the Licensee's failure to comply with any of its
       obligations under this License Agreement, the Licensee shall continue to
       be obligated for any payments due. Termination of the license shall be in
       addition to and not in lieu of any equitable remedies available to
       Sagent.

(d)    Licensee may terminate this agreement at any time provided payment in
       full has been made and Licensee returns the original and all copies of
       Software to Sagent.

12.    TAXES

Licensee shall, in addition to the other amounts payable under this License
Agreement, pay all sales and other taxes, federal, state, or otherwise, however
designated, which are levied or imposed by reason of the transactions
contemplated by this License Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, Licensee
shall promptly pay to Sagent an amount equal to any such items actually paid, or
required to be collected or paid by Sagent.

13.    GENERAL

(a)    Each party acknowledges that it has read this Agreement, it understands
       it, and agrees to be bound by its terms, and further agrees that this is
       the complete and exclusive statement of the Agreement between the
       parties, which supersedes and merges all prior proposals, understandings
       and all other agreements, oral and written, between the parties relating
       to this Agreement. This Agreement may not be modified or altered except
       by written instrument duly executed by both parties.

(b)    Dates or times by which Sagent is required to make performance under this
       license shall be postponed automatically to the extent that Sagent is
       prevented from meeting them by causes beyond its reasonable control.

(c)    This Agreement and performance hereunder shall be governed by the laws of
       the State of


                             Sagent Technology, Inc.

       arisen.

(e)    If any provision of this Agreement is invalid under any applicable
       statute or rule of law, it is to that extent, deemed to be omitted.

(f)    The Licensee may not assign or sub-license, without the prior written
       consent of Sagent, its rights, duties or obligations under this Agreement
       to any person or entity, in whole or in part. A sale of substantially all
       of Licensee's assets to a third party or any transfer of more than 50% of
       the voting stock of Licensee to a third party shall not constitute an
       assignment under this license.

(g)    The prevailing party in any action related to this agreement shall have
       the right to recover its reasonable expenses including attorney's fees.

(h)    The waiver or failure of Sagent to exercise, in any respect, any right
       provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further right
       hereunder.
