(collectively, the "Term Facilities") under which WMC will borrow the
aggregate principal amount of $22,000,000 (the "Term Borrowing") and (ii) a
$10 million revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Facility") under which
WMC will draw down $2 million at the Closing (the "Drawdown"), in each case
with certain providers of financing arranged by Purchaser and on
substantially the terms set forth in the commitment letter attached as

from Glenayre 42,000,000 shares of WMC Delaware Class B Common Stock (the

          Immediately after the Redemption, Glenayre desires to sell to
Purchaser, and Purchaser desires to purchase from Glenayre, 35,955,000 shares
of WMC Delaware Class B Common Stock (the "Purchased Common Shares") on the
terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein, as a result of which
Glenayre shall continue to hold 2,045,000 shares of WMC Delaware Class B
Common Stock (the "Retained Shares").

(in its final and binding form, the "Closing Balance Sheet") setting forth
the Closing Net Worth as of the close of business on the Closing Date.  A
physical inventory shall be conducted by WMC consistent with past practice on
or after the Closing Date for the purpose of preparing the Closing Balance
Sheet, and each of Glenayre and Purchaser and their respective independent
auditors shall have the right to observe the taking of such physical
inventory.  Any costs or expenses incurred by WMC in connection with such
taking of physical inventory shall be borne by WMC.  The Closing Balance
Sheet shall include all known adjustments required in a year-end closing of
the books (to the extent required by GAAP) and, except as otherwise provided
in the definition of "Closing Net Worth," shall be prepared in accordance
with GAAP applied consistently with the accounting principles, policies and
methodologies used in the preparation of the balance sheet as of December 31,
1998 included in the Financial Statements (to the extent prepared in
accordance with GAAP except as otherwise provided in the definition of
"Closing Net Worth").  During the 20-day period immediately following
Glenayre's receipt of the proposed Closing Balance Sheet, Glenayre and its
representatives shall be permitted to review Purchaser's (and, subject to
execution of customary indemnities, its accountants') working papers related
to the preparation of the Closing Balance Sheet and determination of the
Closing Net Worth.  The proposed Closing Balance Sheet shall become final and
binding upon the parties 20 days following Glenayre's receipt thereof, unless
Glenayre shall give written notice of its disagreement (a "Notice of
Disagreement") to Purchaser prior to such date.  Any Notice of Disagreement
shall specify in reasonable detail the nature and dollar amount of any
disagreement so asserted.  If a timely Notice of Disagreement is received by
Purchaser, then the Closing Balance Sheet (as revised in accordance with
clause (x) or (y) below) shall become final and binding upon the parties on
the earliest of (x) the date the parties resolve in writing any differences
they have with respect to the matters specified in the Notice of Disagreement
or (y) the date all matters in dispute are finally resolved in writing by the
Accounting Firm (as defined below).  During the 20 days following delivery of
a Notice of Disagreement, the parties shall seek in good faith to resolve in
writing any differences which they may have with respect to the matters
specified in the Notice of Disagreement.  During such period, Purchaser and
its representatives shall be permitted to review Glenayre's (and, subject to
execution of customary indemnities, its accountants') working papers relating
to the Notice of Disagreement.  At the end of such 20-day period, the parties
shall submit to PricewaterhouseCoopers L.L.P. (the "Accounting Firm") for
review and resolution of all matters which remain in dispute and which were
properly included in the Notice of Disagreement  and the Accounting Firm
shall make a final determination of the Closing Net Worth and the Purchase
Price in accordance with the guidelines and procedures set forth in this
Agreement.  The Closing Balance Sheet and the determination of Closing Net
Worth shall become final and binding on the parties on the date the
Accounting Firm delivers its final resolution in writing to the parties
(which final resolution shall be delivered not more than 45 days following

                                      11


 

 
submission of such disputed matters).  The parties agree that judgment may be
entered upon the determination of the Accounting Firm in any court having
jurisdiction over the party against which such determination is to be
entered.  The fees and expenses of the Accounting Firm shall be borne by
Purchaser and Glenayre in inverse proportion as they may prevail on matters
resolved by the Accounting Firm, which proportionate allocations shall also
be determined by the Accounting Firm at the time the determination of the
Accounting Firm is rendered on the merits of the matters submitted.

          (b)  Within three Business Days after the Closing Balance Sheet
becomes final and binding on the parties, Glenayre shall pay to Purchaser or
Purchaser shall pay to Glenayre, as applicable, an amount sufficient to
further adjust the Estimated Purchase Price (up or down as the case may be)
to the amount that would have been paid if the Estimated Excess or Estimated
Deficiency had been equal to the Excess or Deficiency, together with interest
on the amount of such adjustment at a rate equal to the rate of interest from
time to time announced publicly by The Chase Manhattan Bank as its prime
rate, calculated on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed over 365,
from the Closing Date to the date of payment, by wire transfer to Purchaser
or Glenayre, as applicable.  Any such payment shall be treated as an increase
or decrease in the Purchase Price (as the case may be) or an adjustment to
the number of Purchased Common Shares in accordance with Section 5.1(g).

the Purchased Common Shares will pass to Purchaser, free and clear of any

          3.7  Tax Matters.  Except as set forth in Schedule 3.7 of the
Disclosure Schedules:

          (a)  WMC and any Affiliated Group have filed or caused to be filed
in a timely manner (within any applicable extension periods) all material Tax
Returns required to be filed by applicable Tax Laws.  All material Taxes with
respect to Taxable Periods covered by such Tax Returns, and all other
material Taxes for which WMC is or might otherwise be liable for such Taxable
Periods, have been timely paid in full or will be timely paid in full by the
due date thereof and the most recent Financial Statements reflect an adequate
reserve (in accordance with GAAP), other than with respect to deferred Taxes
reflecting the difference between the book  and Tax basis in assets and
liabilities, for all Taxes payable by WMC for all Taxable Periods and
portions thereof through the date of such Financial Statements.  No Liens
exist for Taxes (other than Liens for Taxes not yet due and payable) with
respect to any of the assets or properties of WMC.  For purposes of this
Section 3.7, "Affiliated Group" means any affiliated group, within the
meaning of Section 1504 of the Code, of which WMC is, or since April 25, 1995
has been, a member.

          (b)  Since April 25, 1995, no Tax Returns of WMC or any Affiliated
Group (with respect to Taxes attributable to WMC) have been examined by the
Internal Revenue Service.  No Tax Returns of WMC or any Affiliated Group

examination by any taxing authority, and no written notice of any such
prospective audit or examination has been received by WMC or any Affiliated
Group.

          (c)  No deficiency resulting from any audit or examination by any
taxing authority relating to Taxes with respect to WMC remains unpaid.

taxing authority in respect of Taxes related to WMC for all Taxable Periods
since April 25, 1995.

          (d)  Except for this Agreement, none of WMC or any Affiliated Group
(i) is party to or bound by any tax-sharing agreement, tax indemnity
obligation or similar agreement, arrangement or practice with respect to
Taxes attributable to WMC (including any advance pricing agreement, closing
agreement or other agreement relating to such Taxes with any taxing
authority), or (ii) has any liability for the Taxes of any other person under
Treasury Regulation Section 1.1502-6(a) (or any similar provision of state,
local or foreign Law), or as a transferee or successor, by contract or
otherwise.

          (e)  The Financial Statements as of December 31, 1998  properly
reflected all deferred revenue for WMC as of December 31, 1998 in accordance
with GAAP.  As of December 31, 1998, none of WMC or any Affiliated Group
shall be required to include in a Taxable Period ending after the Closing
Date taxable income attributable to income of WMC that accrued in a prior
Taxable Period but was not recognized in any prior Taxable Period as a result
of the installment method of accounting, the long-term contract method of
accounting, the cash method of accounting or Section 481 of the Code or any
comparable provision of any other Tax Law, or for any other reason.

          (f)  None of Glenayre, GTI or any of their Affiliates has made with
respect to WMC or any property held by WMC any consent under Section 341 of
the Code; no property of WMC  is "tax exempt use property" within the meaning
of Section 168(h) of the Code; WMC is not a party to any lease made pursuant
to Section 168(f)(8) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954; and none of the
assets of WMC  is subject to a lease under Section 7701(h) of the Code or
under any predecessor section thereof.

          (g)  None of WMC or any Affiliated Group has currently in effect
any agreements or waivers extending, or having the effect of extending, the
statute of limitations with respect to the assessment or collection of any
Tax with respect to WMC.  None of WMC or any Affiliated Group has requested
any extension of time within which to file any Tax Return relating to WMC,
which return has not yet been filed.  No power of attorney with respect to
any Taxes is currently in effect with any taxing authority relating to WMC.

          (h)  WMC and any Affiliated Group have complied in all material
respects with all applicable Laws (or have accrued in accordance with GAAP
any liability for such failure on its books and records) relating to the
payment and withholding of Taxes by WMC (including withholding of Taxes
pursuant to Sections 1441, 1442, 3121 and 3402 of the Code or any comparable
provision of any other Tax Laws).

          3.9  Title to Assets

          (a)  WMC owns no real property.  Schedule 3.9(a) of the Disclosure
Schedules lists all leases and subleases (including amendments thereto) of

                                      21


 

 
real property ("Leased Property") under which WMC is a lessee or sublessee
(the "Leases").  WMC has delivered to the Purchaser true and correct copies
of all Leases.  Except as described in Schedule 3.9(a) of the Disclosures
Schedules, WMC has a valid and enforceable leasehold interest under all of
the Leases, subject only to the terms and conditions set forth in the Leases
and except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy,
reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or similar Laws affecting creditors'
rights generally and by such principles of equity as may affect the
availability of equitable remedies.  WMC is not in default in any material
respect (including any monetary defaults) under any Lease, and there does not
exist any event which, with notice or the lapse of time or both, would
constitute such a default by WMC thereunder.  To the Knowledge of GTI,
Glenayre and WMC, except as set forth in Schedule 3.9(a) of the Disclosure
Schedules, the landlord under each Lease is not in default thereunder and
there does not exist any event which with notice or the lapse of time or both
would constitute a default by such landlord thereunder.

          (b)  WMC has good and valid title to all machinery and equipment,
computers (excluding software and other intellectual property contained
therein), furniture, parts, transportation equipment and other tangible
personal property (other than Inventory) reflected on the balance sheet dated
as of June 30, 1999 included in the Financial Statements (the "Balance
Sheet"), plus any such additional tangible personal property acquired after
June 30, 1999, and less any such tangible personal property disposed of in
the ordinary course of Business after June 30, 1999 (the "Equipment"), in
each case free and clear of all Liens, except for Permitted Liens and those
Liens set forth on Schedule 3.9(b) of the Disclosure Schedules.  All the
Equipment has been maintained in all material respects in accordance with the
past practice of WMC and generally accepted industry practice.  All leased
personal property of WMC is in all material respects in the condition
required of such property by the terms of the lease applicable thereto during
the term of the lease and upon the expiration thereof.

          (c)  WMC will have good and valid title to all inventory to be
reflected on the Closing Balance Sheet (the "Inventory"), in each case free
and clear of all Liens, except for Permitted Liens,  those Liens set forth on
Schedule 3.9(c) of the Disclosure Schedules and Customer Liens.  As of June
30, 1999, the value of Loaned Inventory was less than $450,000 and the value
of the Rented Inventory was less than $45,000.  Except as set forth in
Schedule 3.9(c) of the Disclosure Schedules, since June 30, 1999, there have
not been any write-downs of the value of, or establishment of any reserves
against, any inventory, except for write-downs and reserves in the ordinary
course of Business and consistent with past practice which have not had,
either individually or in the aggregate, a WMC Material Adverse Effect.

          (d)  Except as set forth on Schedule 3.9(d) of the Disclosure
Schedules, all accounts receivable of WMC to be reflected on the Closing

                                      22


 

 
Balance Sheet (the "Receivables") will have arisen from bona fide
transactions in the ordinary course of Business and will constitute valid and
enforceable claims of WMC.  The Receivables will be free and clear of all
Liens, except for Permitted Liens and those Liens set forth on Schedule
3.9(d) of the Disclosure Schedules.  Since June 30, 1999, there have not been
any write-offs as uncollectible of any notes or accounts receivable of WMC,
except for write-offs in the ordinary course of Business and consistent with
past practice which have not had, either individually or in the aggregate, a
WMC Material Adverse Effect.

          (e)  Schedule 3.9(e) of the Disclosure Schedules sets forth, as of
the date of this Agreement, a list of (1) all  patents, trademark, service
mark, corporate name, domain name, trade name and copyright registrations,
and all applications for any of the foregoing, owned by WMC or used by WMC in
conducting the Business (the "Registered Intellectual Property"); and (2) all
Contracts of WMC relating to licenses of the WMC Intellectual Property (as
defined below) to third parties other than Contracts entered into in the
ordinary course of the Business.  The WMC Intellectual Property owned by WMC
is referred to herein as the "Owned WMC Intellectual Property" and the WMC
Intellectual Property licensed by WMC from other Persons is referred to
herein as the "Licensed WMC Intellectual Property." Except as set forth on
Schedule 3.9(e) of the Disclosure Schedules, WMC owns or has a license to use
the Registered Intellectual Property and all trade secrets, computer
software, technology, know-how and all other intellectual property and other
proprietary rights necessary for the conduct of the Business (collectively,
the "WMC Intellectual Property") without payment to any other Person.  Except
as set forth in Schedule 3.9(e) of the Disclosure Schedules, WMC owns and
possesses all right, title and interest in and to the Owned WMC Intellectual
Property free and clear of any Liens except for Permitted Liens.  The rights
of WMC under all material Contracts with respect to the Licensed WMC
Intellectual Property are valid and enforceable by WMC in accordance with
their respective terms except as such enforceability may be limited by
applicable bankruptcy, insolvency and other similar Laws affecting creditors'
rights generally and by such principles of equity as may affect the
availability of equitable remedies.  Except as set forth in Schedule 3.9(e)
of the Disclosure Schedules, (1) WMC has no claim(s) pending or asserted (or,
to GTI's, Glenayre's and WMC's Knowledge, threatened or unasserted) against
any other Person relating to the WMC Intellectual Property; (2) no other
Person has any claim(s) asserted (or, to GTI's, Glenayre's and WMC's
Knowledge, threatened or unasserted) against WMC relating to the WMC
Intellectual Property; and (3) the Owned WMC Intellectual Property does not
infringe, and to GTI's, Glenayre's and WMC's Knowledge the Business does not
infringe, on any intellectual property owned or controlled by any other
Person.

arbitration proceedings), judgments, settlements, decrees, injunctions or
orders outstanding, pending or, to GTI's Glenayre's and WMC's Knowledge,
threatened against WMC, or pending or threatened by WMC against any Person,
or which WMC intends to initiate, at law or in equity, or before or by any

been, no labor strike, material labor dispute, work stoppage or lockout

any Governmental Authority responsible for the enforcement of labor or
employment laws to conduct an investigation of WMC and, to the Knowledge of
GTI, Glenayre and WMC, no such investigation is in progress.

          To the Knowledge of GTI, Glenayre and WMC, no employee of WMC is a
party to or bound by any Contract of any nature, or subject to any judgment,
decree or order of any Governmental Authority, that may interfere with the
use of such person's best efforts to promote the interests of WMC or conflict
with the Business or the Transactions if such interference or conflict would
have a WMC Material Adverse Effect.  To the Knowledge of GTI, Glenayre and
WMC, no activity of any employee of WMC as or while an employee has caused a
violation of any employment contract, confidentiality agreement, patent
disclosure agreement, or other contract or agreement which would have a WMC
Material Adverse Effect.  To the Knowledge of GTI, Glenayre and WMC, neither
the execution and delivery of this Agreement, nor the conduct of the Business
by the employees of WMC will conflict with or result in a breach of the
terms, conditions or provisions of, or constitute a default under, any
Contract under which any such employees are now obligated if such conflict or
breach would have a WMC Material Adverse Effect.

case the party required to make the release or announcement shall allow the
other parties reasonable time to comment on such release or announcement in
advance of such issuance.

     subsidiaries or divisions of Glenayre and GTI other than WMC, and that

               (3)  Glenayre and GTI may retain any Tax Returns, reports or
     forms, and Purchaser shall be provided with copies of such returns,
     reports or forms only to the extent that they relate to WMC's  separate
     returns or separate Tax liability.

          (f)  WMC shall be permitted to pay any cash dividends or other
distributions in cash to Glenayre prior to the Closing with respect to the
outstanding capital stock of WMC to the extent that cash is accrued on the
books and records of WMC.

          (g)  The parties shall reasonably cooperate prior to the Closing to
ensure that the Redemption complies with the applicable corporate law
requirements, including (i) making any adjustments in the Redemption Price
and the Purchase Price so long as the economic benefits to Purchaser and
Glenayre, and the relative ownership of WMC stock immediately after the
Closing,  remain the same or (ii) causing WMC to re-incorporate in Delaware
if the Redemption would satisfy the statutory requirements of the Delaware
General Corporation Law and the requirements for "recap accounting."  The
parties shall also reasonably cooperate to make such other changes in the
Transactions prior to the Closing so long as neither Purchaser nor Glenayre
is adversely affected by any such change.

          (h)  Except as otherwise provided in the Transition Services
Agreement, Glenayre, GTI and Purchaser agree that GTI and Glenayre shall have
no obligation to continue to provide any insurance coverage for WMC after the
Closing.

          5.2  Covenants of GTI and Glenayre.  GTI and Glenayre covenant and
agree with Purchaser that during the period from the date hereof and
continuing until the Closing Date (except as expressly contemplated or
permitted hereby or by the other Transactions or the Financing, or to the
extent that Purchaser shall otherwise consent in writing, which consent shall
not be unreasonably withheld or delayed):

ordinary course in substantially the same manner as previously conducted and
shall use all reasonable efforts consistent with past practices to preserve
intact its present Business organization, maintain its rights and preserve

its relationships with customers, suppliers, employees and others having
business dealings with it.

reasonable times during regular business hours to WMC's records and files,
correspondence and properties, as well as to all information relating to
commitments, contracts, titles and financial position, or otherwise
pertaining to the Business, as Purchaser shall reasonably request.

disclosed in Schedule 5.2(c) of the  Disclosure  Schedules or as otherwise
specifically contemplated by this Agreement or by the other Transactions or

               (8)  take, or agree (in writing or otherwise) to take, any

                                      38


 

 
               (18) agree in writing (or otherwise if legally binding) to do
     any of the foregoing.

          (d)  Without the prior written consent of Purchaser, GTI and

reasonably likely to cause any of the conditions to the Transactions set
forth in Article 6 not to be fulfilled.

          (e)  Glenayre and GTI shall keep confidential, and cause their
Affiliates and instruct their officers, directors, employees and advisors to
keep confidential, all confidential information relating to WMC and the
Business, except as required by Law or administrative process and except for
information which is available to the public on the Closing Date, or
thereafter becomes available to the public other than as a result of a breach
of this Section 5.2(e).  The covenant set forth in this Section 5.2(e) shall
terminate five years after the Closing Date.

          (f)  Glenayre and GTI shall keep, or cause to be kept, all
insurance policies set forth in Schedule 3.17 of the Disclosure Schedules, or
suitable replacements therefor, in full force and effect through the close of
business on the Closing Date.

          (g)  On the Closing Date, Glenayre and GTI shall, to the extent
permitted under such agreements, assign to Purchaser their rights under all
confidentiality agreements entered into by Glenayre or GTI with any Person in
connection with the proposed sale of WMC to the extent such rights relate to
WMC. Copies of such confidentiality agreements shall be provided to Purchaser
on the Closing Date.

          (h)  Glenayre and GTI shall have the continuing obligation until
the Closing promptly to supplement or amend the Disclosure Schedules hereto
with respect to any material matter hereafter arising or discovered which, if
existing or known at the date of this Agreement, would have been required to
be set forth or described in such Schedules; provided, however, that (i) no
supplement or amendment to such Schedules shall have any effect for the
purpose of determining the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in
Section 6.3; and (ii) if any supplement or amendment to such Schedule shall
not constitute a condition which permits Purchaser, in its sole and absolute
discretion, to refuse to close the Transactions in accordance with Section
6.3, then such supplement or amendment shall not have any effect for the
purpose of determining the indemnification obligations of Glenayre and GTI
under Article 7.

          (i)  Glenayre and GTI shall promptly notify Purchaser of, and
furnish Purchaser any information it may reasonably request with respect to,
the occurrence to Glenayre's or GTI's Knowledge of any event or condition or
the existence to Glenayre's or GTI's Knowledge of any fact that would cause

                                      39


 

 
any of the conditions to Purchaser's obligation to consummate the
Transactions not to be fulfilled.

          (j)  To the extent permitted by applicable Law, Glenayre and GTI
covenant that all licenses, permits and authorizations which are held in the
name of any employee, officer, director, stockholder, agent or otherwise on
behalf of WMC shall be duly and validly transferred to WMC without
consideration prior to the Closing on or as soon thereafter as practicable,
and that the warranties, representations, covenants and conditions contained
in this Agreement shall apply to the same as if held by WMC as of the date
hereof.

          (k)  Glenayre and GTI covenant that prior to the Closing Date all
intercompany receivables and payables in respect of WMC shall be eliminated.

          (l)  Glenayre and GTI agree to cooperate with Purchaser in
obtaining the Financing, including by making officers and employees of WMC
available to meet with prospective Financing sources and causing WMC to
execute and deliver such agreements, consents, certificates, resolutions and
other documents as are true and accurate and necessary or desirable in
connection with the Financing.

          5.3  Covenants of Purchaser.  Purchaser covenants with GTI and
Glenayre that, during the period from the date hereof and continuing until the
Closing Date (except as expressly contemplated or permitted hereby, or to the
extent that GTI and Glenayre shall otherwise consent in writing, which consent
shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), Purchaser shall not knowingly
take any action which would cause or would be reasonably likely to cause any
of the conditions to the Transactions set forth in Article 6 not to be
fulfilled. Purchaser shall promptly notify Glenayre and GTI of, and furnish
Glenayre and GTI any information they may reasonably request with respect to,
the occurrence to Purchaser's knowledge of any event or condition or the
existence to Purchaser's knowledge of any fact that would cause any of the
conditions to Glenayre's and GTI's obligations to consummate the Transactions
not to be fulfilled.

          5.4  Certain Benefit Plans.

          (a)  Purchaser shall provide the employees of WMC with employee
benefits that are substantially equivalent to those provided to other
employees holding similar positions with Purchaser ("Purchaser's Benefit
Plans").  Purchaser shall use reasonable efforts to cause Purchaser's Benefit
Plans to give employees of WMC credit under Purchaser's Benefit Plans (i) for
their service with WMC prior to the Closing Date for purposes of any
eligibility, vesting, waiting periods or pre-existing condition limitations
otherwise applicable under any of Purchaser's Benefit Plans and (ii) for
amounts paid under GTI's employee benefit plans toward any applicable

                                      40


 

 
deductibles, co-payments and out-of-pocket limits as though such amounts had
been paid in accordance with the terms and conditions of Purchaser's Benefit
Plans.

          (b)  Glenayre shall cause WMC to withdraw as a participating
"Employer" under (and as defined in) the Glenayre Technologies, Inc. 401(k)
Profit Sharing Plan (the "Glenayre 401(k) Plan"), effective as of the Closing
Date, and from and after the Closing Date, WMC shall have no right, power,
discretion, control or authority over, or any rights or interests in or to,
the Glenayre 401(k) Plan or any of its assets, trusts or other funding media.
Employees of WMC shall be deemed to have separated from service under the
Glenayre 401(k) Plan on the Closing Date and shall be eligible to be paid
their vested benefits in accordance with the terms and provisions of the
Glenayre 401(k) Plan.

          (c)  All employees of WMC who are participants in the medical care
and dependent care spending account plan maintained by GTI or an Affiliate of
GTI ("Glenayre's Spending Accounts") as of the Closing Date shall become
participants in substantially equivalent medical care and dependent care
spending accounts established for such employees by Purchaser ("Purchaser's
Spending Accounts").  Any elections made by employees of WMC with respect to
Glenayre's Spending Accounts shall remain in effect and no change in
elections shall be effected as a result of such employees' becoming
participants in Purchaser's Spending Accounts.  No later than 15 days after
the Closing Date, GTI shall provide Purchaser with information concerning the
amount elected by each employee of WMC to be contributed to each of
Glenayre's Spending Accounts for the plan year of the Closing, the amount of
all benefit payments made to such employees from Glenayre's Spending Accounts
for such plan year until the Closing Date and the outstanding balances in
each of Glenayre's Spending Accounts for each such employee as of immediately
prior to the Closing Date.  Not later than 60 days following the Closing
Date, GTI shall transfer, or cause to be transferred, to Purchaser the net
aggregate account balances (positive and negative) in Glenayre's Spending
Accounts for such employees of WMC.  In consideration of such transfer,
Purchaser shall pay from Purchaser's Spending Accounts all eligible expenses
incurred during the plan year of the Closing by such employees of WMC
(whether before or after the Closing Date) which are unpaid as of the Closing
Date in accordance with the policies in effect with respect to Purchaser's
Spending Accounts for all participants.

          (d)  On or as soon as practicable after the Closing Date (but in no
event later than 10 Business Days after the Closing Date), Glenayre shall
make payment to the key employees of WMC, which employees shall be selected
by Glenayre prior to the Closing Date, of bonuses (as previously disclosed to
Purchaser) in respect of such employees' participation in the consummation of
the Transactions.


                                      41


 

 
          (e)  As of the Closing Date, WMC shall transfer all assets and
liabilities in respect of all current or former WMC employees who may
participate in the 1999 Deferred Compensation Plan to GTI; thereafter, WMC
shall have no liability under such Deferred Compensation Plan or any other
GTI or Glenayre Plan with respect to any current or former WMC employees,
except as otherwise provided in Section 5.4(c).

          5.5  Tax Matters.  GTI, Glenayre and Purchaser hereby covenant and
agree as follows with respect to certain Tax matters:

          (a)  GTI or Glenayre shall be responsible for, shall prepare or
cause to be prepared, and shall timely file or cause to be timely filed, all
Tax Returns of WMC and/or WMC Delaware that are required to be filed on or
prior to the Closing Date; and GTI or Glenayre shall cause WMC and/or WMC
Delaware to pay and be responsible for all Taxes due with respect to such Tax
Returns.  GTI and Glenayre shall be responsible for, shall prepare or cause
to be prepared, and shall timely deliver to Purchaser for filing, and
Purchaser shall timely file, with the appropriate taxing authorities, all
separate corporate income and franchise Tax Returns of WMC and/or WMC
Delaware for Taxable Periods ending on or prior to the Closing Date that are
required to be filed after the Closing Date.  Purchaser shall be responsible
for all other Tax Returns of WMC and/or WMC Delaware that are required to be
filed after the Closing Date (taking into account extensions); provided,
however, that for any Taxable Period of WMC and/or WMC Delaware that includes
(but does not end on) the Closing Date, Glenayre shall reimburse WMC and/or
WMC Delaware for the Taxes attributable through the Closing Date to the
extent (but only to the extent) not accrued (without taking into account any
accruals for deferred taxes reflecting differences between the tax and book
bases in assets and liabilities) in calculating the Closing Net Worth. WMC
and/or WMC Delaware shall be responsible for the payment of all Taxes accrued
in calculating the Closing Net Worth.

          (b)  To the extent permitted by Law and consistent with prior year
practice, GTI shall include, or cause to be included, WMC and/or WMC Delaware
in the United States consolidated federal income Tax Returns of GTI and all
other consolidated, combined or unitary income and franchise Tax Returns of
GTI for WMC and/or WMC Delaware's Taxable Periods ending on or prior to the
Closing Date and for that portion of WMC and/or WMC Delaware's then current
Taxable Period that has elapsed as of the Closing Date.  GTI and Purchaser
shall, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, elect with the relevant
state taxing authorities where WMC and/or WMC Delaware files a separate
income and franchise Tax Return to close the Taxable Period of WMC and/or WMC
Delaware as of the Closing Date.  WMC and/or WMC Delaware shall close its
books as of the close of business on the Closing Date, and Purchaser shall
deliver to GTI within 120 days following the Closing Date all information in
the possession of Purchaser or WMC and/or WMC Delaware that is necessary or
appropriate for GTI to include, or cause to be included, WMC and/or WMC

                                      42


 

 
Delaware in such consolidated, combined or unitary Tax Returns and for the
preparation of the separate state Tax Returns.

          (c)  GTI, Glenayre and Purchaser shall reasonably cooperate, and
shall cause their respective officers, employees, agents, auditors and
representatives to reasonably cooperate, in preparing and filing all Tax
Returns (including amended returns and claims for refund), including
maintaining and making available to each other all records necessary in
connection with Taxes and in resolving all disputes and audits with respect
to all Taxable Periods relating to Taxes.  Purchaser recognizes that GTI,
Glenayre and their agents and representatives may need access, from time to
time, after the Closing Date, to certain accounting and Tax records and
information held by WMC and/or WMC Delaware to the extent such records and
information pertain to events occurring on or prior to the Closing Date and
were used in the preparation of Tax Returns.  Purchaser agrees that (i) from
and after the Closing Date, Purchaser shall, and shall cause WMC and/or WMC
Delaware to, (A) retain and maintain such records until such time as GTI and
Glenayre reasonably agree that such retention and maintenance is no longer
necessary, and (B) allow GTI, Glenayre and their agents and representatives,
at GTI's or Glenayre's expense, to inspect, review, and make copies of such
records as GTI or Glenayre may reasonably deem necessary or appropriate from
time to time, such activities to be conducted during normal business hours,
and (ii) Purchaser shall not, and shall cause each of WMC and/or WMC Delaware
not to, dispose of any of such records without first providing GTI and
Glenayre with an opportunity to take possession of such records or to make
copies thereof prior to any such disposal.

          (d)  Whenever any taxing authority asserts, or threatens to assert,
a claim, makes or threatens to make, an assessment or otherwise disputes or
affects the Tax reporting position of WMC and/or WMC Delaware for any Taxable
Period ending on or prior to the Closing Date, Purchaser shall promptly
inform GTI and Glenayre in writing provided, GTI and Glenayre have an
indemnification obligation to Purchaser with respect to such Taxes pursuant
to this Agreement. At GTI's and Glenayre's cost and election (which election
shall be exercised by written notice to Purchaser within 30 days after
Purchaser has so informed GTI and Glenayre), GTI, Glenayre or their
Affiliates shall control any proceedings and shall determine whether and when
to settle any such claim; provided, however, that GTI, Glenayre or their
Affiliates shall obtain WMC and/or WMC Delaware's consent (which shall not be
unreasonably withheld or delayed) if such settlement could reasonably be
expected to have the effect of increasing the future Tax liability of
Purchaser or WMC and/or WMC Delaware.  GTI and Glenayre agree, or agree to
cause their Affiliates, to consult with Purchaser and keep Purchaser informed
with respect to the status of any discussion, proposal or submission with
respect to any such claim, audit or similar proceeding.  If GTI and Glenayre
do not exercise such election to control such proceedings, then Purchaser
shall control such proceedings and shall consult with GTI and Glenayre and

                                      43


 

 
keep GTI and Glenayre informed with respect to the status of any discussion,
proposal or submission with respect to any such claim, audit or similar
proceeding and shall not agree to any settlement thereof without the prior
written consent of GTI and Glenayre, which consent shall not be unreasonably
withheld.

          (e)  If there is an audit adjustment with respect to Taxes of WMC
and/or WMC Delaware based on income (including adjustments relating to
deductions or credits) in a pre-Closing Taxable Period that produces a Tax
benefit to Purchaser in a post-Closing Taxable Period, Purchaser shall pay to
GTI an amount equal to Purchaser's Tax benefit.

          (f)  All refunds or credits of Taxes for or attributable to Taxable
Periods of WMC and/or WMC Delaware ending on or before the Closing Date shall
be for the account of GTI,  other than any Tax refunds or credits accrued (i)
in calculating the Closing Net Worth or (ii) attributable to a carryback of a
net operating loss or similar tax attribute to a Post-Closing Taxable Period
of WMC and/or WMC Delaware to the extent permitted by Section 5.5(g), in each
case which will be for the account of Purchaser.  Purchaser, GTI or Glenayre,
as the case may be, shall cause to be forwarded to the other party or to
reimburse the other party for any such refunds or credits immediately after
such receipt or realization thereof.  All refunds or credits of Taxes for or
attributable to Taxable Periods of WMC and/or WMC Delaware ending after the
Closing Date shall be for the account of Purchaser, and, if GTI or any
Affiliates of GTI receives or realizes any such refund or credit, GTI or such
Affiliate shall forward to Purchaser or reimburse Purchaser for any such
refunds or credits immediately after such receipt or realization thereof by
GTI or such Affiliate.

          (g)  Purchaser shall not carryback, or cause WMC and/or WMC
Delaware to carryback (and shall make or cause WMC and/or WMC Delaware to
make any available election not to carryback), any net operating loss to any
pre-Closing Taxable Period of WMC and/or WMC Delaware nor shall Purchaser
file any claims for any refunds with respect to any such pre-Closing Taxable
Period for federal or state Taxes with respect to any such net operating
losses, except to the extent required by applicable Law.

          (h)  All Tax sharing agreements and similar agreements (other than
the provisions of this Agreement) between WMC and/or WMC Delaware and any
other corporation shall be terminated as of the Closing Date, and there shall
be no liability to Purchaser, GTI or Glenayre under any such agreement
following the Closing Date.

          (i)  GTI and Purchaser shall jointly make an election described in
Section 338(h)(10) of the Code and any corresponding election under state,
local or foreign Tax Laws for which a separate election is permissible with
respect to Purchaser's acquisition of the Purchased Common Shares under this

                                      44


 

 
Agreement (the "Section 338(h)(10) Election"); provided, however, that no
corresponding election shall be made under the Tax Laws of California.  GTI
and Purchaser agree to report the transfers under this Agreement consistent
with the Section 338(h)(10) Election, and shall take no position contrary
thereto unless required to do so by applicable Tax Laws pursuant to a
Determination (as defined by Section 1313(a) of the Code).  Purchaser shall
be responsible for the preparation and filing of all returns, documents,
statements or other forms that are required to be submitted to any federal,
state, county or other local Governmental Authority in connection with the
Section 338(h)(10) Election (including any "statement of section 338
election" and the United States Internal Revenue Service Form 8023, together
with any schedules or attachments thereto, that are required pursuant to
Treasury Regulation Section 1.338-1 or 1.338(h)(10)-1) (collectively, the
"Section 338 Forms") in accordance with applicable Tax Laws and the terms of
this Agreement.  GTI shall execute and deliver to Purchaser such documents or
forms as are reasonably requested and are required by any Tax Laws to
properly complete the Section 338 Forms, at least 30 days prior to the date
such Section 338 Forms are required to be filed.  Purchaser and GTI have
entered into an agreement (the "Allocation Agreement") concerning the
computation of the Aggregate Deemed Sale Price (as defined under applicable
Treasury Regulations) of the assets of WMC and/or WMC Delaware and the
allocation of such Aggregate Deemed Sale Price among such assets.  Purchaser
and GTI shall use their best efforts to revise the Allocation Agreement to
the extent necessary to reflect any differences, if any, between the
estimated Closing Balance Sheet and the Closing Balance Sheet no later than
60 days before the last date on which the Section 338(h)(10) Election may be
filed.  If, 60 days before the last date on which the Section 338(h)(10)
Election may be filed, Purchaser and GTI have not revised the Allocation
Agreement as described above, any disputed aspects of such revision shall be
resolved before the last date on which the Section 338(h)(10) Election may be
filed by a national or international accounting firm mutually agreed upon by
Purchaser and GTI having no material relationship with either Purchaser or
GTI.  The costs, expenses and fees of such accounting firm shall be borne
equally by WMC and/or WMC Delaware and GTI.  Purchaser and GTI agree to act
in accordance with the allocations contained in the Allocation Agreement in
any relevant returns or similar filings.

          (j)  GTI shall be responsible for filing any amended consolidated,
combined or unitary Tax Returns for any Taxable Period ending on or prior to
the Closing Date which are required as a result of examination adjustments
made by the Internal Revenue Service or by the applicable state, local or
foreign taxing authorities for such Taxable Period as finally determined;
provided, however, that no such Tax Return shall be filed without the prior
written consent of Purchaser (which shall not be unreasonably withheld or
delayed) if such Tax Return would have the effect of materially increasing
the Tax liability for WMC and/or WMC Delaware or materially reducing any net
operating loss, net capital loss, investment tax credit, foreign tax credit,

                                      45


 

 
charitable deduction or other credit or tax attribute of WMC and/or WMC
Delaware which could reduce Taxes of WMC and/or WMC Delaware after the
Closing (including deductions and credits related to alternative minimum
Taxes).  For those jurisdictions in which separate Tax Returns are filed by
WMC and/or WMC Delaware, any required amended returns resulting from such
examination adjustments, as finally determined, shall be prepared by GTI and
furnished to WMC and/or WMC Delaware for approval, signature and filing at
least 15 days prior to the due date for filing such Tax Returns.

          (k)  After the date of this Agreement, none of GTI, Glenayre or WMC
and/or WMC Delaware or any Affiliated Group shall, as to WMC and/or WMC
Delaware, make or change any Tax election, change an annual Tax Accounting
period, adopt or change any Tax election, change an annual Tax Accounting
period, adopt or change any Tax accounting method, file any amended Tax
Return, enter into any closing agreement, settle any Tax Claim or assessment,
surrender any right to claim a refund of Taxes, consent to any extension or
waiver of the statute of limitations period applicable to any Tax claim or
assessment, if any such election, adoption, change, amendment, agreement,
settlement, surrender or consent would have the effect of materially
increasing the Tax liability of WMC and/or WMC Delaware or materially
reducing any net operating loss, net capital loss, investment tax credit,
foreign tax credit, charitable deduction or any other credit or tax attribute
of WMC and/or WMC Delaware  which could reduce Taxes of WMC and/or WMC
Delaware after the Closing (including deductions and credits related to
alternative minimum Taxes) without the prior written consent of Purchaser
(which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).

          (l)  GTI agrees that it shall not elect to reattribute to itself
pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 1.1502-20(g) any net operating loss
carryovers or net capital loss carryovers of WMC and/or WMC Delaware.

          (m)  GTI agrees to elect to allocate any consolidated limitation
under Section 382 of the Code to WMC and/or WMC Delaware to provide the
maximum use of any net operating loss carryovers of WMC and/or WMC Delaware.

          (n)  Prior to the Closing, GTI shall cause WMC and/or WMC Delaware
to settle all Outstanding Tax Claims  and pay all amounts owing by WMC and/or
WMC Delaware, including interest and penalties, incurred by WMC and/or WMC
Delaware in connection therewith.

          5.6  Maintenance of Records  Glenayre, GTI and Purchaser each agrees
that it will maintain, or in the case of Purchaser cause WMC to maintain, for
at least six years after the Closing Date (or for such longer period as may be
required by applicable Law) the books, records, and documents of WMC existing
on the Closing Date retained by it or, in the case of Purchaser, retained by
WMC (collectively, "WMC Records").  For so long as each party is required
pursuant to this Section to maintain WMC Records, such party shall or, in the

                                      46


 

 
case of Purchaser shall cause WMC  to, permit the other party, during normal
business hours and upon reasonable prior notice, access to, with the right to
copy at such other party's expense, all WMC Records to the extent related to
the other party's legitimate business purpose.

          5.7  Further Assurances. GTI, Glenayre and Purchaser each hereby
covenants and agrees with the others that at any time and from time to time it
will promptly execute and deliver to the other such further assurances,
instruments and documents and take such further action as the other may
reasonably request in order to carry out the full intent and purpose of this
Agreement, including (i) all actions reasonably requested in order to obtain
the Financing contemplated by the Commitment Letter, and (ii) all actions
necessary to obtain, prior to the Closing Date, all licenses, certificates,
permits, consents, approvals, authorizations and orders of Governmental
Authorities and parties to contracts relating to the Business as are
necessary for the consummation of the Transactions.  At WMC's request, GTI
shall cause Glenayre Electronics to assign, or enforce for WMC's benefit (at
WMC's sole cost and expense), all rights of WMC under nondisclosure
agreements or international distributor agreements or other agreements, in
each case pertaining to the Business, entered into by GTI or its Affiliates.

          5.8  Fees and Expenses.  GTI, Glenayre and Purchaser shall each bear
their own respective expenses in connection with the negotiation and
preparation of this Agreement and the consummation of the Transactions,
including the fees and expenses of their respective counsel, investment
bankers, accountants and consultants.  WMC shall not pay or agree to pay any
third-party out-of-pocket fees or expenses (other than incidental expenses that
are not material in the aggregate) in connection with the negotiation and
preparation of this Agreement and the consummation of the Transactions or the
Financing.

          5.9  Non-Compete; Non-Solicitation.

          (a)  In further consideration of the Purchase Price to be paid
hereunder (and in recognition of the fact that Glenayre and GTI have had the
opportunity to become familiar with the trade secrets of WMC and other
confidential information of WMC, each of Glenayre and GTI agrees that, until
the third anniversary of the Closing Date (the "Noncompete Period"), neither
it nor any of its Affiliates shall directly or indirectly own any interest
in, manage or control or any Person engaged in, or in any manner engage in,
the Business (or any part of the Business that competes in any material
respect with WMC) anywhere in the world; provided that nothing in this
Section 5.9(a) shall prohibit Glenayre or GTI or their respective Affiliates
from (1) being a passive owner of not more than 5% of the outstanding stock
of any class of a corporation which is publicly traded; (2) engaging in any
business conducted by GTI or any Affiliate of GTI (other than WMC or WMC Sub)
on the Closing Date; (3) depleting its current inventory of satellite
receiver products (less than 70 units in stock) manufactured by GTI or its

                                      47


 

 
Affiliates; (4) selling products manufactured by third parties that may
compete with the products manufactured or sold by WMC so long as (A) the
products do not bear a Glenayre trademark and (B) such products are sold in
connection with the sale of products by GTI or its Affiliates which are
otherwise permitted by this Section 5.9(a); and (5) engaging in any business
competing with the Business if (A) such competition results from an
acquisition by GTI or any Affiliate of GTI (whether by stock or asset
acquisition, merger, consolidation or otherwise) of the business of another
Person (the portion of such business acquired from such Person that competes
with the Business being referred to herein as the "Acquired Competing
Business"), (B) the net sales derived from such Acquired Competing Business
are less than $25,000,000 during the last 12 months before such acquisition
and constitute 15% or less of the total net sales of the business acquired
from such other Person as of the date of such acquisition and (C) GTI or its
Affiliate promptly offers Purchaser the option to purchase the Acquired
Competing Business from Glenayre or its Affiliate on substantially the same
terms and conditions as Glenayre or its Affiliate acquired the Acquired
Competing Business and if Purchaser does not exercise that option by notice
to Glenayre or its Affiliate within 60 days from receipt by Purchaser of such
offer, Glenayre or its Affiliate shall (i) within 30 days following receipt
by Glenayre of Purchaser's notice, engage a nationally recognized investment
banking firm reasonably acceptable to Purchaser to sell such Acquired
Competing Business, (ii) within 60 days after engaging such firm, distribute
offering materials to prospective purchasers and WMC and (iii) establish as a
preliminary deadline for offers for the Acquired Competing Business a date
which is no later than six months following the engagement of the investment
banking firm, in each case time being of the essence.  Nothing shall preclude
WMC from bidding for the Acquired Competing Business in such process. Subject
to the foregoing, Glenayre or its Affiliate shall in any event divest such
Acquired Competing Business within 18 months after the acquisition thereof.
In addition, the restrictions of this Section 5.9(a) shall terminate upon a
Change in Control of GTI.

          (b)  Prior to the second anniversary of the Closing Date, none of
Glenayre or GTI or their respective Affiliates shall induce or attempt to
induce any employee of WMC to leave the employ of WMC or hire any person who
is employed by WMC as of the Closing Date or who was employed by WMC within
90 days prior to being hired by Glenayre or GTI or their respective
Affiliates, provided that following a Change of Control that occurs before
the second anniversary of the Closing Date, the provisions of this Section
5.9(b) shall continue until the third anniversary of the Closing Date.

          (c)  If, at the time of enforcement of this Section 5.9, a court
shall hold that the duration, scope or area restrictions stated herein are
unreasonable under circumstances then existing, the parties agree that the
maximum duration, scope or area reasonable under such circumstances shall be
substituted for the stated duration, scope or area and that the court shall

                                      48


 

 
be allowed to revise the restrictions contained herein to cover the maximum
period, scope and area permitted by Law.  Each of Glenayre and GTI agrees
that the restrictions contained in this Section 5.9 are reasonable.

                                INDEMNIFICATION

          7.1  Indemnification by GTI and Glenayre.  Subject to the limitations
set forth in Section 7.4, GTI and Glenayre shall jointly and severally
indemnify and hold harmless the Purchaser Indemnified Parties from and
against any and all Loss or Losses that any of them shall incur, arising out
of (1) the breach of any representation or warranty made by GTI or Glenayre
in this Agreement; (2) any breach of any covenant to be performed by GTI or
Glenayre under this Agreement; (3) any Taxes imposed on or payable by WMC
which are not accrued (without taking into account any accrual for deferred
taxes reflecting differences between tax and book bases in assets and
liabilities) in calculating the Closing Net Worth (w) with respect to any
Taxable Period or portion thereof that ends on or before the Closing Date,
(x) as a result of the Section 338(h)(10) Election with respect to the
acquisition of the Purchased Common Shares as referred to in Section 5.5(i)
hereof, (y) under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1502-6(a) (or any similar
provision of state, local or foreign Law) by reason of WMC being included in
any consolidated, affiliated, combined or unitary group at any time on or
before the Closing Date as a transferee, by contract or otherwise or (z)
relating to any payments required to be made under any Tax indemnity, Tax
sharing, Tax allocation agreement or similar agreement; or (4) the claim
asserted by Custom Telecommunications, Inc. described in Item #2(d) of
Schedule 3.9(e) of the Disclosure Schedules or (5) the conduct, operation or
ownership of WMC Delaware on and prior to October 25, 1999.

          7.2  Procedure.

          (a)  If any matter shall arise that may give rise to a claim by a
Purchaser Indemnified Party against GTI or Glenayre under the provisions of
Section 7.1 or by a Glenayre Indemnified Party against Purchaser under the
provisions of Section 7.5 (in either case, an "Indemnity Claim"), the party

                                      52


 

 
or parties claiming indemnification (the "Indemnified Party") shall give
written notice thereof (the "Notice of Claim") to the party or parties
against whom indemnification is claimed (the "Indemnifying Party") as
promptly as reasonably practicable, stating the specific nature of the
Indemnity Claim with reasonable detail as to the alleged basis of the
Indemnity Claim and the Section of this Agreement of which a violation is
alleged, provided, however, that failure to give such notification shall not
affect the indemnification provided hereunder except to the extent (and only
to the extent) the Indemnifying Party shall have been prejudiced as a result
of such failure.  Subject to Section 5.5(d), if any Indemnity Claim is based
upon any claim, demand, suit or action of any third party against an
Indemnified Party (a "Third Party Claim"), then the Indemnified Party shall
or, in the event Purchaser is the Indemnified Party shall cause WMC to,
undertake the defense of such Third Party Claim, shall conduct such defense
as would be reasonable and prudent Person to whom no indemnity were available
and shall permit the Indemnifying Party (at its sole expense) to participate
in (but not control) such defense.  The Indemnified Party shall periodically
consult with the Indemnifying Party and keep the Indemnifying Party informed
of any settlement negotiations and the status thereof with respect to such
Third Party Claim.

          (b)  If the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party are unable
to resolve an Indemnity Claim within 45 days after the Indemnifying Party
receives the Notice of Claim, then the Indemnity Claim shall be referred by
Indemnified Party to, and be settled by, binding arbitration in accordance
with the then applicable Rules of Commercial Arbitration of the American
Arbitration Association.  The arbitration panel or arbitrator (as applicable)
shall be selected as provided in Section 7.2(c).  The  arbitration panel or
arbitrator (as applicable) shall determine the amount, if any, of the
Indemnity Claim which is proper.  The venue of the arbitral proceedings shall
be in New York, New York.  In reaching a decision, the arbitration panel or
arbitrator (as applicable) shall apply the principles of law of a New York
court, in applying New York law, would use in the event of litigation on the
same issues.  The arbitration panel or arbitrator (as applicable) shall
permit and facilitate such discovery as any of the parties to the arbitration
shall reasonably request.  The decision rendered by the arbitration panel or
arbitrator (as applicable) shall be final and binding on the Indemnified
Party and then Indemnifying Party.  Judgment on the award rendered by the
arbitration panel or arbitrator (as applicable) may be entered in any court
having jurisdiction thereof.  The fees and expenses incurred in connection
with such arbitration (including attorneys' fees) shall be borne by the
Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party in inverse proportion as they
may prevail on matters resolved by such arbitration panel or arbitrator (as
applicable), which proportionate allocations shall also be determined by such
arbitration panel or arbitrator (as applicable) at the time judgment is
rendered thereby.


                                      53


 

 
          (c)  If the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party cannot
resolve an Indemnity Claim within the 45-day period specified in Section
7.2(b), then promptly thereafter the Indemnified Party shall name an
individual to serve as an arbitrator on the arbitration panel to determine
the Indemnity Claim and shall give the Indemnifying Party notice thereof;
within 10 days after such notice, the Indemnifying Party shall name a second
individual to serve as an arbitrator on such arbitration panel.  If the
Indemnifying Party does not name a second individual to serve on the
arbitration panel within such 10-day period, then the arbitrator named by the
Indemnified Party shall serve as the sole arbitrator.  If the individual
named by the Indemnifying Party and the individual named by the Indemnified
Party, respectively, cannot agree on a third member within 10 days, then the
selection of a third individual to serve on the arbitration panel shall be
made by the American Arbitration Association or if the American Arbitration
Association fails to choose an arbitrator within 15 days after request by the
Indemnified Party or the Indemnifying Party, the third arbitrator shall be
appointed upon the application of either the Indemnified Party or the
Indemnifying Party to the United States District Court of the Southern
District of New York, or, in the event the jurisdictional requirements of
such Court are not satisfied, to the State Supreme Court of New York County,
New York.

          7.3  Definition of Loss or Losses.  For purposes of this Agreement,
"Loss" or "Losses" shall mean any and all liabilities, losses, damages, fees,
fines, Taxes, penalties, costs and expenses (including reasonable
accountants' and attorneys' fees) of every nature and character.  The amount
of any indemnified Loss hereunder shall be reduced by the amount of (i)
insurance proceeds net of deductibles actually used and incidental expenses
and premium increases reasonably anticipated to result therefrom, (ii)
proceeds or amounts actually received from third parties directly with
respect to such Loss (regardless of when received), and (iii) any actual Tax
benefits which are currently realizable by the Indemnified Party in
connection with or as a result of such Loss. To the extent such Loss does not
give rise to a currently realizable Tax Benefit, and instead gives rise to a
subsequently realized Tax benefit to the Indemnified Party,  such party shall
refund to the Indemnifying Party the amount of such Tax benefit when, as and
if realized.  The amount of any indemnifiable Loss hereunder shall also be
increased by the amount of any current Tax cost incurred by the Indemnified
Party arising from the receipt of indemnity payments hereunder.  In computing
the amount of any such Tax cost or Tax benefit, the Indemnified Party shall
be deemed to recognize all other items of income, gain, loss, deduction, or
credit before recognizing any item arising from the receipt of any indemnity
payment hereunder or the incurrence or payment of any indemnified Loss.  Any
indemnity payment under this Agreement shall be treated as an adjustment to
the Purchase Price for Tax purposes, unless otherwise required by Law.



                                      54


 

 
          7.4  Limitation of GTI's and Glenayre's Liability.  Notwithstanding
any provision of the Agreement to the contrary, except in the case of actual
common law fraud on the part of GTI, Glenayre or WMC the liability of GTI and
Glenayre to Purchaser and the Purchaser Indemnified Parties shall be limited
as follows:

          (a)  After the Closing GTI and Glenayre shall not be liable or
responsible in any manner whatever to Purchaser or the Purchaser Indemnified

exclusive remedy and cause of action of Purchaser or any of the Purchaser
Indemnified Parties against GTI and Glenayre with respect to any matter
arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or the Transactions
(except for equitable relief in the nature of specific performance or
injunctive relief).

          (b)  GTI and Glenayre shall not have any liability with respect to
any Loss to the extent (and only to the extent) that GTI or Glenayre is
prejudiced as a result of (i) Purchaser's failure to take, or cause to be
taken, such action as may be reasonably necessary under the circumstances to
protect its interests and to otherwise mitigate the Loss, or (ii) Purchaser's
failure to provide GTI and Glenayre with prompt and continuing notice as
provided in Section 5.5(d) or 7.2(a), as applicable.

          (c)  GTI and Glenayre shall not have any liability for any Loss or
Losses otherwise indemnifiable under Section 7.1(1) or 7.1(4), other than

          (d)  GTI and Glenayre shall not have any liability to Purchaser
under Section 7.1 for any Loss or Losses, other than with respect to breaches
of Sections 3.2, 3.3, 3.7  and 3.15, Tax matters under Section 5.5 and
Indemnity Claims under Section 7.1(3), on a cumulative aggregate basis, in
excess of 33 1/3% of the total amount of  the Purchase Price (as adjusted
pursuant to Section 2.3) and the Redemption Price.

          (e)  GTI and Glenayre shall not have any liability for any Loss
otherwise indemnifiable under Section 7.1(1), other than with respect to

disclosed in all material respects in the Disclosure Schedules or in any
certificate provided by GTI or Glenayre to Purchaser on or before the
Closing.

otherwise indemnifiable hereunder with respect to which a Notice of Claim has

                                      55


 

 
not been given to GTI and Glenayre within the applicable time periods set
forth in Section 9.1.

          (g)  Purchaser shall have no right to indemnification under Section
7.1 with respect to any Loss to the extent that the matter forming the basis
for such Loss was specifically taken into account in the calculation of the
Closing Net Worth (that is, no "double counting").

          (h)  The limitations of Section 7.4(c), (d) and (e) shall not apply
to breaches of Sections 3.2, 3.3, 3.7 and 3.15, Tax matters under Section 5.5
or Indemnity Claims under Section 7.1(3).

          7.5  Indemnification by Purchaser.  Purchaser shall indemnify and
hold harmless the Glenayre Indemnified Parties from and against all Loss or
Losses that any of them incur, arising out of (1) the breach of any
representation or warranty made by Purchaser in this Agreement,  (2) any
breach of any covenant to be performed by Purchaser under this Agreement or
(3) any liability of GTI or Glenayre Electronics with respect to the
Sunnyvale Lease arising following the Closing with respect to the period
following the Closing.

          9.8  Severability.  Any term or provision of this Agreement which

other jurisdiction.  If any provision of this Agreement is so broad as to be
unenforceable, the provision shall be interpreted to be only so broad as is

                                                                     EXHIBIT 2.2




                                   AMENDMENT
                                      TO
                             ACQUISITION AGREEMENT


          AMENDMENT (this "Amendment"), dated as of October 31, 1999, by and
among GTI ACQUISITION CORP., a Delaware corporation ("Glenayre"); GLENAYRE
TECHNOLOGIES, INC., a Delaware corporation ("GTI"); WESTERN MULTIPLEX
CORPORATION, a California corporation ("WMC California"); WESTERN MULTIPLEX
CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation ("WMC Delaware") and WMC HOLDING CORP., a
Delaware corporation ("Purchaser"), to the Acquisition Agreement, dated as of
September 30, 1999, by and among Glenayre, GTI, WMC California and Purchaser
(the "Acquisition Agreement").

                             STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

          Glenayre, GTI, WMC California and Purchaser are parties to the
Acquisition Agreement;

          The Acquisition Agreement provided that the parties would
reasonably cooperate prior to the Closing to ensure that the Redemption
complies with the applicable corporate law requirements and requirements for
"recap accounting" treatment, including making appropriate modifications to
the Acquisition Agreement, if necessary;

          In connection therewith, Glenayre has contributed 100% of the
capital stock of WMC California to WMC Delaware, a wholly owned subsidiary of
Glenayre, in exchange for 80,000,000 shares of Class B Common Stock, par
value $.01 per share, of WMC Delaware, and the parties desire that the
Transactions (other than the Charter Amendment) shall apply with respect to
the Class B Common Stock of WMC Delaware rather than the common stock of WMC
California, as provided in the Acquisition Agreement;

          Glenayre, GTI, WMC California and Purchaser therefore desire to
amend the Acquisition Agreement to reflect the foregoing changes and to add
WMC Delaware as a party thereto.

          NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the Statement of Purpose and of
the mutual agreements contained herein, the parties hereto do hereby agree as
follows:






 

 
1.  Amendment of the Preamble.
    -------------------------

     a.   The Preamble of the Acquisition Agreement is hereby amended in its
entirety to read as follows:

     "THIS ACQUISITION AGREEMENT (this "Agreement") is executed as of
     September 30, 1999 by and among GTI ACQUISITION CORP., a Delaware
     corporation ("Glenayre"); GLENAYRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC., a Delaware
     corporation ("GTI"); WESTERN MULTIPLEX CORPORATION,  a California
     corporation ("WMC" or "WMC California"); WESTERN MULTIPLEX CORPORATION,
     a Delaware corporation ("WMC Delaware"); and WMC HOLDING CORP., a
     Delaware corporation ("Purchaser")."

     b.   Except as amended by this Amendment, all references to "WMC" in the
Acquisition Agreement shall be deemed references to "WMC California".

2.  Amendment of the Statement of Purpose.
    -------------------------------------

     a.   The Statement of Purpose of the Acquisition Agreement is hereby
amended in its entirety to read as follows:

     "Glenayre, a wholly-owned subsidiary of GTI, owns all of the issued and
     outstanding capital stock of WMC Delaware, which consists of 80,000,000
     shares of Class B Common Stock, par value $.01 per share (the "WMC
     Delaware Class B Common Stock").

     The parties desire that WMC enter into (i) two term loan facilities
     (collectively, the "Term Facilities") under which WMC will borrow the
     aggregate principal amount of $22,000,000 (the "Term Borrowing") and
     (ii) a $10 million revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Facility")
     under which WMC will draw down $2 million at the Closing (the
     "Drawdown"), in each case with certain providers of financing arranged
     by Purchaser and on substantially the terms set forth in the commitment
     letter attached as Exhibit 1 to this Agreement (the "Commitment
     Letter").

     The proceeds from the Term Borrowing shall be used by WMC to redeem from
     Glenayre 42,000,000 shares of WMC Delaware Class B Common Stock (the
     "Redeemed Shares") for $21,000,000, as a result of which Glenayre shall
     continue to hold 38,000,000 shares of WMC Delaware Class B Common Stock
     immediately after such redemption (the "Redemption").

     Immediately after the Redemption, Glenayre desires to sell to Purchaser,
     and Purchaser desires to purchase from Glenayre, 35,955,000 shares of
     WMC Delaware Class B Common Stock (the "Purchased Common Shares") on the
     terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein, as a result of
     which Glenayre shall continue to hold 2,045,000 shares of WMC Delaware
     Class B Common Stock (the "Retained Shares")."

          of which only 80,000,000 Shares of WMC Delaware Class B Common
          Stock are issued and outstanding.  No shares of Class A Common

          Immediately  prior to the Closing, Glenayre will be the owner
          beneficially and of record of, and have good and valid title to,
          all the Redeemed Shares, the Purchased Common Shares and the
