           REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF SELLER AND STOCKHOLDERS
                                        
     As an inducement to Purchaser to enter into and perform its obligations
under this Agreement, and in consideration of the covenants of Purchaser
contained herein, Seller and each Stockholder, jointly and severally, represent
and warrant to Purchaser (which representations and warranties shall survive the
Closing (subject to Section 8.4) regardless of what examinations, inspections,
audits and other investigations Purchaser has heretofore made with respect to
such representations and warranties) as follows:

     3.1  CORPORATE STATUS; AUTHORITY OF SELLER; ENFORCEABILITY.

     (a)  Seller is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good
standing under the laws of the State of Illinois and, except as set forth on
Schedule 3.1, is qualified to do business as a foreign corporation in each other
jurisdiction where the failure to so qualify could reasonably be expected to
have a material adverse effect on the business, operations or condition
(financial or otherwise) of Seller or the Purchased Assets. Seller has the
corporate power and authority necessary to (i) own, lease, operate or otherwise
hold its properties and assets and to carry on its business as presently
conducted and (ii) execute and deliver this Agreement and perform its
obligations hereunder.

     (b)  Each Stockholder has the capacity to execute and deliver this
Agreement and to perform his obligations hereunder. The execution and delivery
by Seller of this Agreement, and the performance by Seller of its obligations
hereunder, have been duly and validly authorized and approved by all necessary
corporate action on the part of Seller. This Agreement, the Bill of Sale and
Assignment and the Assumption Agreement are each binding upon, and enforceable
against, Seller and each Stockholder in accordance with their terms, subject
to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization and other laws affecting creditors'
rights generally and by general principles of equity (whether in a proceeding
at law or in equity).

     (c)  Except as set forth on Schedule 3.1, neither the execution or delivery
of this Agreement by Seller or any Stockholder nor the performance by Seller or
any Stockholder of its or his obligations under this Agreement will (assuming
the receipt of all consents referred to in SECTION 3.16), conflict with or
result in a breach of any of the terms or provisions of, or constitute a default
under, any material contract, lease, license, franchise, permit, indenture,
mortgage, deed of trust, note agreement or other agreement or instrument to
which any Stockholder or Seller is a party or is bound, the articles of
incorporation or by-laws of Seller or any applicable Law or Order to which
Seller or any Stockholder is a party or by which Seller or Stockholder is bound.

                                      -11-

   17
     3.2  ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE.  Except as reserved against on the Reference
Balance Sheet, the Accounts Receivable reflected on such balance sheet: (a) were
acquired by Seller in the Ordinary Course of Business and represent bona fide
transactions; (b) to the Seller's Knowledge, are not subject to any material
claim, counterclaim, set-off or deduction; (c) represent valid obligations owing
to Seller by account debtors that are not Affiliates of Seller, which are
enforceable in accordance with their respective terms, subject to bankruptcy
insolvency, reorganization and other laws affecting creditors' rights generally,
and by general principals of equity (whether in a proceeding at law or in
equity); and (d) are owned by Seller free and clear of all Liens.

     INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.  Schedule 3.3 sets forth all of the Intellectual
Property owned or licensed for use by Seller (or material to the Business)
including any United States or foreign registrations or applications therefor. 
All of the registrations and applications set forth in Schedule 3.3 are in full
force and effect and all necessary registration, maintenance and renewal fees
in connection therewith have been made and all necessary documents and
certificates in connection therewith have been filed with the relevant patent,
copyright, trademark or other Authority for the purpose of maintaining the
registrations or applications for registration of such Intellectual Property. 
Seller owns all right, title, and interest in and to each item of such
Intellectual Property disclosed in Schedule 3.3, except for those items of
Intellectual Property which have been licensed to or by Seller, which are
identified therein (the "Intellectual Property License Agreements"). All
Intellectual Property disclosed in Schedule 3.3 (i) is free and clear of any
and all Liens and (ii) there are no restrictions on the direct or indirect
transfer of any such Intellectual Property. Seller has taken commercially
reasonable measures to protect the secrecy, confidentiality and value of their
trade secrets and proprietary information. Seller has not granted any license,
agreement or other permission to use such Intellectual Property except as
disclosed on Schedule 3.3. To Seller's Knowledge, (i) no Intellectual Property
is being infringed by any other Person, and (ii) Seller is not infringing on
any intellectual property of any other Person, and no claim is pending, or, to
the Seller's Knowledge, has been threatened to such effect or with respect to
the ownership, validity, license or use of, or any infringement resulting from,
the Intellectual Property or the sale of any products or services by Seller. 
There is no dispute between Seller and any licensor under any applicable
Intellectual Property License Agreement.

which Seller is currently bound which provide for annual payments to or from
Seller in excess of $25,000 (the "Material Contracts") have been provided to

INFORMATION, March 22, 1999, Book 1 and 2" and (B) those certain Contracts
referenced in the letter dated April 14, 1999 from Desiree Thompson to Fred
Belmont. Identified with an asterisk on Schedule 3.4 are those Material
Contracts which are not, by their terms, assignable to Purchaser. Seller is not
a party to, nor are the Purchased Assets bound by, any Material Contract, not
entered into in the Ordinary Course of Business. Each Material Contract is in
full force and effect and constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of
Seller and, to the Seller's Knowledge, each other party thereto, enforceable in
accordance with its terms, subject to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization and
other laws affecting creditors' rights generally and by general principals
equity (whether in a proceeding at law or in equity). Neither Seller nor, to
Seller's Knowledge, any other party to such Material Contract is, or has
received notice that it is in violation or breach of or default 

                                      -12-

under any such Material Contract (or with notice or lapse of time or both, would
be in violation or breach of or default under any such Material Contract).

     3.5  COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS.  Seller has complied with all, and is not in
violation of any, applicable Laws or Orders affecting the Purchased Assets or
the operation of the Business, the failure with which to comply could reasonably
be expected to have a material adverse effect on the Business or the Purchased
Assets. Seller has not received any notice, citation, claim, assessment or
proposed assessment as to or alleging any violation of any Law nor, to Seller's
Knowledge, has Seller been subject to any investigation by any Authority within
the prior three (3) years.

     3.6  LITIGATION.  Schedule 3.6 sets forth a brief description of all suits,
actions, arbitrations, and legal, administrative and other proceedings and
governmental investigations pending or, to the Seller's Knowledge, threatened
against or affecting Seller or the Purchased Assets. None of the matters set
forth in Schedule 3.6, if decided adversely to Seller, could reasonably be
expected to have a material adverse effect on the Business or the Purchased
Assets. Seller is not presently engaged in any legal action to recover moneys
due to it for damages sustained by it.

     3.7  PERSONNEL IDENTIFICATION AND COMPENSATION.  Schedule 3.7 contains a
true and complete list of the names and titles of all current officers,
directors and employees of Seller. Seller has previously delivered to Purchaser

or key employee or Affiliate thereof, on the other hand, within the three (3)
years immediately preceding the date hereof have been made on the basis of
prevailing market rates and terms such that from the perspective of Seller, all
such transactions have been made on terms no less favorable than those which

Seller to which Seller is indebted to, the outstanding principal amount of such
indebtedness together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon and the interest
rates and maturity dates related to such indebtedness. Except as set forth on

by or leased to Seller or any copyrights, patents, trademarks, trade names or
trade secrets owned or licensed by Seller.

respective obligations under this Agreement.

     7.2  CONFIDENTIALITY.

     (a)  The parties hereto agree with respect to the terms and conditions of
this Agreement, including, without limitation, the Purchase Price, and all
information that is furnished or disclosed by the other party (collectively,
"Confidential Information"), that (i)such Confidential Information is
confidential and/or proprietary to the furnishing/disclosing party and entitled
to and shall receive treatment as such by the receiving party; (ii)the receiving
party will hold in confidence and not disclose nor use (except in respect of the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement) any such Confidential Information,
treating such Confidential Information with the same degree of care, but not
less than a reasonable degree of care, and confidentiality as it accords its own

     7.3  EMPLOYMENT MATTERS.

     (a)  Purchaser shall offer employment to all of the employees of Seller
engaged full-time or part-time in the conduct of the Business at not less than
their current salary from Seller (and on other terms and conditions
substantially similar to the terms and conditions to which similarly situated
non-probationary employees of Purchaser are subject) and Seller shall facilitate
the employment of such persons by Purchaser, including termination of the
employment of such persons by Seller on the date hereof. Seller shall be
responsible for the payment of all compensation and other benefits payable to,
or accrued in respect of, all such employees for all times prior to the
termination of their employment with Seller. Seller shall retain all Liabilities
(including, without limitation, any severance claims or other causes of action)
that relate to or arise out of employment with Seller) that are asserted by any
employee or former employee of Seller (including any and all beneficiaries
thereof) who do not become employees of Purchaser.

     (b)  All hourly and salaried employees of Seller who accept employment with
Purchaser and commence such employment after the Closing (the "Transferred
Employees") will be included in Purchaser's existing employee welfare benefit
plans and will be subject to Purchaser's existing employment policies, as
applicable to Purchaser's employees who are similarly situated.

     7.4  EMPLOYEE BENEFITS.  (a) Seller shall remain solely responsible for
Liabilities arising from workers' compensation claims, both medical and
disability, or other government-mandated programs which are based on injuries
occurring prior to the date hereof regardless of when such claims are filed.

based on injuries occurring after the date hereof.

     (b)  Seller shall remain solely responsible for the satisfaction of all
claims for medical, dental, life insurance, health, accident, disability or
other benefits brought by or in respect of Transferred Employees and former
employees of Seller under any of Seller's welfare benefit plans where the claims
were incurred prior to the date hereof regardless of when such claims are filed.

     (c)  Seller shall remain solely responsible for all Liabilities in
connection with claims for benefits brought by or in respect of all employees
and former employees of Seller (other than Transferred Employees) under any of
Seller's welfare benefit plans with respect to medical, dental, life insurance,
health, accident or disability or other benefits, including without limitation
continuation coverage pursuant to Section 4980B of the Code and Part 6 of
Title I of ERISA.

     7.5     NON-COMPETITION AGREEMENT.

     7.5.1   In partial consideration for the Purchase Price paid to Seller for
the Purchased Assets, for a period of three (3) years from and after the date
hereof, Seller shall not, directly or indirectly, or as the agent of another
Person or through other Persons as an agent:

     (a)     participate or engage in, directly or indirectly (as an owner,
partner, employee, officer, director, independent contractor, consultant,
advisor or in any other capacity calling for the rendition of services, advice,
or acts of management, operation or control), any business that is 



                                      -26-

   32
competitive with the Business within any geographic area in which any of the
Related Entities does business; provided, however, that Seller may own up to
five percent (5%) of any class of securities of a corporation engaged in such a
competitive business if such securities are listed on a national securities
exchange or registered under the Exchange Act;

     (b)     solicit any current employee of the Related Entities or any
individual who becomes an employee during such period to leave such employment;
or

     (c)     seek to divert or dissuade from continuing to do business with or
entering into business with any of the Related Entities, any supplier, customer
or other Person that had a business relationship with or with which any Related
Entity was actively planning or pursuing a business relationship during such
three-year period.

     7.5.2   The necessity of protection against the competition of Seller
against Purchaser and the nature and scope of such protection has been carefully
considered by the parties hereto. The parties hereto agree and acknowledge that
the duration, scope and geographic areas applicable to the covenant
not-to-compete described in this Section 7.5 are fair, reasonable and necessary
and that adequate compensation has been received by Sellers for such
obligations. If, however, for any reason any court determines that the
restrictions in this Section 7.5 are not reasonable or that consideration is
inadequate, such restrictions shall be interpreted, modified or rewritten to
include as much of the duration, scope and geographic area identified in this
Section 7.5 as will render such restrictions valid and enforceable.

     7.5.3   In the event of a breach or threatened breach of this Section 7.5,
Purchaser shall be entitled, without the posting of a bond, to an injunction
restraining such breach. Nothing herein contained shall be construed as
prohibiting any party from pursuing any other remedy available to it for such
breach or threatened breach.

                                  ARTICLE VIII
                                INDEMNIFICATION

     8.1  INDEMNIFICATION BY SELLER.  Seller and Stockholders, jointly and
severally, agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Purchaser and all of its
officers, directors, shareholders, Affiliates, employees and agents (the
"Purchaser Indemnified Persons") after the Closing from and against any
Adverse Consequence arising out of or resulting from:

     (a)  the untruth, inaccuracy or incompleteness as of the date hereof of any
representation or warranty of Seller or any Stockholder contained in this
Agreement or Schedules hereto (or in any document, writing, certificate, data or
financial statements delivered or required to be delivered by Seller or any
Stockholder pursuant to this Agreement) (each a "Purchaser Warranty Claim") or
the failure by any Stockholder or Seller to perform any of his or its covenants
or obligations hereunder;





                                      -27-
   33
     (b)  any brokers' commissions, finders' fees or other like payments
incurred or alleged to have been incurred by Seller or any Stockholder in
connection with the sale of the Shares or the consummation of the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement; and 

     (c)  any and all Retained Liabilities of Seller. 

     8.2  INDEMNIFICATION BY PURCHASER.  Purchaser agrees to indemnify, defend
and hold harmless Seller, each Stockholder and their respective employees,
agents and Affiliates after the Closing from and against any Adverse
Consequences arising out of or resulting from (a) the untruth, inaccuracy or
incompleteness as of the date hereof of any representation or warranty of
Purchaser contained in this Agreement (or in any document, writing or
certificate delivered by Purchaser under this Agreement) (each a "Seller
Warranty Claim"), (b) the failure by Purchaser to perform any of its covenants
or obligations hereunder, (c) any brokers' commissions, finders' fees or other
like payments incurred or alleged to have been incurred by Purchaser in
connection with the sale of the Purchased Assets or the consummation of the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement and (d) any and all Purchased Assets
and Liabilities (other than Retained Liabilities) of Seller. 

     8.3  PROCEDURE FOR INDEMNIFICATION.  If any Person shall claim
indemnification (the "Indemnified Party") hereunder for any claim other than a
third-party claim, the Indemnified Party shall promptly give written notice to
the other party from whom indemnification is sought (the "Indemnifying Party")
of the nature and amount of the claim. If an Indemnified Party shall claim
indemnification hereunder arising from any claim or demand of a third party, the
Indemnified Party shall promptly give written notice (a "Third-Party Notice")
to the Indemnifying Party of the basis for such claim or demand, setting forth
the nature of the claim or demand in detail. The Indemnifying Party shall have
the right to compromise or, if appropriate, defend at its own cost and through
counsel of its own choosing, any claim or demand set forth in a Third-Party
Notice giving rise to such claim for indemnification. In the event the
Indemnifying Party undertakes to compromise or defend any such claim or demand,
it shall promptly (and in any event, no later than fifteen (15) days after
receipt of the Third-Party Notice) notify the Indemnified Party in writing of
its intention to do so. The Indemnified Party shall fully cooperate with the
Indemnifying Party and its counsel in the defense or compromise of such claim or
demand. After the assumption of the defense by the Indemnifying Party, the
Indemnified Party shall not be liable for any legal or other expenses
subsequently incurred by the Indemnifying Party, in connection with such
defense, but the Indemnified Party may participate in such defense at its own
expense. No settlement of a third party claim or demand defended by the
Indemnifying Party shall be made without the written consent of the Indemnified
Party, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld. The Indemnifying Party
shall not, except with the written consent of the Indemnified Party, consent to
the entry of a judgment or settlement which does not include as an unconditional
term thereof, the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to the Indemnified Party
of an unconditional release from all liability in respect of such third party
claim or demand. 

     8.4  LIMITATIONS ON INDEMNITY.  (a) The indemnities contained in this
Article VIII with respect to Purchaser Warranty Claims and Seller Warranty
Claims shall expire eighteen (18) months following the date hereof, except with
respect to claims under Section 3.13 as to which the indemnification obligation
shall survive until thirty (30) days after the expiration of any applicable 



                                      -28-
   34

statute of limitations; provided, that if at the stated expiration of any
indemnification obligation there shall then be pending any indemnification claim
by a Person, such Person shall continue to have the right to such
indemnification with respect to such claim notwithstanding such expiration.

     (b)  Seller's and Stockholder's maximum aggregate liability to the
Purchaser Indemnified Persons for indemnification of Purchaser Warranty Claims
pursuant to Section 8.1(a) shall not exceed $7,500,000.  

     (c)  Purchaser's maximum aggregate liability to Seller and Stockholders for
indemnification of Seller Warranty Claims pursuant to Section 8.2(a) shall not
exceed $2,500,000.  

     (d)  No Purchaser Indemnified Person shall be entitled to indemnification
pursuant to Section 8.1 for any Purchaser Warranty Claims unless and until the
aggregate Adverse Consequences suffered by all Purchaser Indemnified Persons
collectively exceeds $300,000 whereupon the Purchaser Indemnified Persons
shall be entitled to indemnification hereunder from Seller and Stockholders for
all Adverse Consequences suffered by Purchaser Indemnified Persons regardless
of such threshold amount.  

     (e)  Seller and Stockholders shall not be entitled to indemnification
pursuant to Section 8.2 for any Seller Warranty Claims unless and until the
aggregate Adverse Consequences suffered by Seller and Stockholders exceeds
$50,000, whereupon Seller and Stockholders shall be entitled to indemnification
hereunder from Purchaser for all Adverse Consequences suffered by Seller and
Stockholders regardless of such threshold amount.  

     8.5  PAYMENT.  Except for third-party claims and disputes subject
to arbitration under Section 10.13 being defended in good faith by the
Indemnifying Party in accordance with Section 8.3, the Indemnifying Party shall
satisfy its obligations hereunder within fifteen (15) days after receipt of
notice of a claim.  

     8.6  SET-OFF.  If Seller or any Stockholder fails to make any payment with
respect to any indemnification claim in accordance with this Article  VIII when
due, Purchaser may, in addition to any other rights hereunder, upon seven (7)
days notice to Seller, set-off the amount of such claim against any amounts
payable by Purchaser to Seller under this Agreement, (including, without
limitation, payments to be made pursuant to the Promissory Note and Section 2.4
hereof). Notwithstanding anything in this Article  VIII to the contrary,
Purchaser and Seller each agrees that (i)  any claim for indemnification by
Purchaser shall be charged first against any amounts owing to Seller under the
Promissory Note, in the inverse order of the installments owing thereunder, (ii)
any additional amounts shall then be charged against any payments which may
become owing to Seller pursuant to Section 2.3, and (iii) in no event shall
Purchaser have any right of set-off or deduction against any compensation in
whatever form paid to any of the Stockholders in their capacities as employees
or officers of, or consultants, to, Purchaser or any Affiliate thereof on
account of any indemnification obligation owing to Purchaser by the Seller or
any Stockholder hereunder.

successor Representative when such instrument shall have been delivered to him
or her and a copy thereof delivered to Purchaser.

     of Purchaser contained in this Agreement or in any document delivered by
     Purchaser pursuant hereto;  

          (ii) taking such other action as the Representative is authorized to
     take under this Agreement including, without limitation, Section 2.3;

                                      -30-

     determinations, on behalf of Seller, required under this Agreement;

          (iv) all such other matters as the Representative may deem necessary
     or appropriate to consummate this Agreement and the transactions

     to carry out any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.  

     9.3  IRREVOCABLE APPOINTMENT.  The appointment of the Representative
hereunder is irrevocable and any action taken by the Representative pursuant to
the authority granted in this Article IX shall be effective and absolutely
binding on Seller and each Stockholder notwithstanding any contrary action of,
or direction from, Seller or a Stockholder, except for actions taken by the
Representative which are in bad faith or grossly negligent. The death or
incapacity of a Stockholder shall not terminate the prior authority and agency
of the Representative.  

     9.4  RESIGNATION.  The Representative may resign at any time by giving
notice to Seller, and such resignation shall be effective upon the appointment
and qualification of a successor. The Representative may be discharged, and
replaced by another person to act as his or her successor, by an instrument in
writing signed by Seller (or its successors in interest) or Stockholders
holding a majority of the Purchaser Shares at the time of determination.

     9.5  PURCHASER'S RELIANCE.  Purchaser shall not be obliged to inquire into
the authority of the Representative, and Purchaser shall be fully protected in

duties as Representative under this Agreement, the Representative shall not

Representative shall in good faith believe to be genuine, to have been signed or
delivered by a proper person or persons and to conform with the provisions of
this Agreement.  

     (b)  Stockholders, jointly and severally, shall indemnify, defend and hold
harmless the Representative against, from and in respect of any Adverse
Consequence arising out of or resulting from the performance of his or her
