At the Effective Time, Shockwave will withhold 10% of the shares Shockwave Common Stock and Shockwave Series C Preferred Stock to be issued to Atom shareholders in the Merger upon conversion of their Atom Common Stock and Atom Preferred Stock pursuant to Section 5.1 (such withheld Shockwave shares and any dividends or distributions received in respect of such Shockwave shares being hereinafter referred to as the "ESCROW SHARES"), and will hold the certificates representing such Escrow Shares as security for the indemnification obligations of the Atom shareholders until the earlier of the termination of the Agreement and Plan of Reorganization dated December 14, 2000 between the Constituent Corporations or the first anniversary of the Effective Time. 3 6 5.5 Surrender and Exchange of Outstanding Certificates.

Promptly after the Effective Time and receipt of such Atom Certificate or Affidavit, as the case may be, Shockwave or its transfer agent will issue to each tendering holder of an Atom Certificate or an Affidavit, certificates (a "TENDERING ATOM HOLDER") for the number of shares Shockwave Common Stock and Shockwave Preferred Stock to which such holder is entitled pursuant to Section 5.1, subject to the provisions of Section 5.2 (regarding the elimination of fractional Merger Shares), Section 5.3 (regarding Dissenting Shares) and Section 5.4 (regarding the withholding of Escrow Shares). No dividends or distributions payable to holders of record of Shockwave Common Stock or Shockwave Preferred Stock after the Effective Time of the Merger will be paid to the holder of any unsurrendered Atom Certificate unless and until the holder of such unsurrendered Atom Certificate surrenders such Atom Certificate or an Affidavit to Shockwave as provided above. Subject to the effect, if any, of applicable escheat and other laws, following surrender of any Atom Certificate or Affidavit, there will be delivered to the person entitled thereto, without interest, the amount of any dividends and distributions theretofore paid with respect to Shockwave Common Stock so withheld as of any date subsequent to the Effective Time and prior to such date of delivery. 6. No Further Transfers. After the Effective Time, there will be no further registration of transfers of any shares of Atom Common Stock or Atom Preferred Stock on the stock transfer books of the Surviving Corporation. If, after the Effective Time, certificates formerly representing shares of Atom Common Stock or Atom Preferred Stock are presented to the Surviving Corporation, they will be canceled and exchanged in accordance with this Section 5, subject to applicable law in the case of Dissenting Shares. 7. Implementation. Each of the Constituent Corporations shall take, or cause to be taken, all action or do, or cause to be done, all things necessary, proper or advisable under the laws of the States of Washington and Delaware to consummate and make effective the Merger. 8. Amendment. This Agreement may, to the extent permitted by law, be amended, supplemented or interpreted at any time by action taken by the Board of Directors of both of the Constituent Corporations; provided, however, that this Agreement may not be amended or supplemented after having been approved by the shareholders of a Constituent Corporation except by a vote or consent of shareholders in accordance with applicable law. 4 7 IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have duly executed and delivered this AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF MERGER as of the date first set forth above.
