                REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE PURCHASER
                -----------------------------------------------

     The Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to the Company, at and as of
the date of this Agreement and at and as of the Closing, as follows:

     Section 4.1    AUTHORITY.  The Purchaser is a corporation and is duly
organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of
Delaware.  The Purchaser has now, and will have at the Closing Date, all
requisite legal and corporate power to enter into this Agreement, to purchase
the Shares hereunder, and to perform its obligations under the terms of this
Agreement.

     Section 4.2    AUTHORIZATION.  All corporate action on the part of the
Purchaser necessary for the purchase of the Shares and the performance of the
Purchaser's obligations hereunder has been taken or will be taken prior to the
Closing Date.  This Agreement when executed and delivered by the Purchaser will
constitute a valid and legally binding obligation of the Purchaser, enforceable
in accordance with its terms, except as enforcement may be limited by
applicable bankruptcy laws or other similar laws affecting creditors' rights
generally, and except insofar as the availability of equitable remedies may be
limited.

     Section 4.3    PURCHASE ENTIRELY FOR OWN ACCOUNT.  This Agreement is made
with the Purchaser in reliance upon the Purchaser's representation to the
Company, which by the 

                                      -4-


Purchaser's execution of this Agreement, the Purchaser hereby confirms, that 
the Shares to be acquired by the Purchaser will be acquired for investment 
for the Purchaser's own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a 
view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof, and that the 
Purchaser has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, 
or otherwise distributing the same.  By executing this Agreement, the 
Purchaser further represents that the Purchaser does not presently have any 
contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person to sell, 
transfer or grant participation to such person or to any third person, with 
respect to any of the Shares.  The Purchaser has not been formed for the 
specific purpose of acquiring the Shares.

     Section 4.4    INVESTMENT EXPERIENCE.  Purchaser is an "accredited
investor" as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act.  Purchaser is
aware of the Company's business affairs and financial condition and has had
access to and has acquired sufficient information about the Company to reach an
informed and knowledgeable decision to acquire the Shares.  Purchaser has such
business and financial experience as is required to give it the capacity to
protect its own interests in connection with the purchase of the Shares.
Purchaser is not a "broker" or a "dealer" as defined in the Exchange Act.

     Section 4.5    RESTRICTED SECURITIES. The Purchaser understands that the
Shares are characterized as "restricted securities" under applicable U.S.
federal and state securities laws inasmuch as they are being acquired from the
Company in a transaction not involving a public offering and that, pursuant to
these laws and applicable regulations, the Purchaser must hold the Shares
indefinitely unless they are registered with the Securities and Exchange
Commission and qualified by state authorities, or an exemption from such
registration and qualification requirements is available. The Purchaser further
acknowledges that if an exemption from registration or qualification is
available, it may be conditioned on various requirements including, but not
limited to, the time and manner of sale, the holding period for the Shares, and
on requirements relating to the Company which are outside of the Purchaser's
control, and which the Company is under no obligation and may not be able to
satisfy.  In this connection, Purchaser represents that it is familiar with SEC
Rule 144, as presently in effect, and understands the resale limitations
imposed thereby and by the Securities Act.

     Section 4.6    LEGENDS.  The Purchaser understands that the Shares, and
any securities issued in respect thereof or exchange therefor, may bear one or
all of the following legends:

               (a)  "THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT
BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AND HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR
INVESTMENT AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE SALE OR
DISTRIBUTION THEREOF.  NO SUCH SALE OR DISTRIBUTION MAY BE EFFECTED WITHOUT AN
EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATED THERETO OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN A
FORM REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT
REQUIRED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933."

                                      -5-


               (b)  Any legend required by the Blue Sky laws of any state to
the extent such laws are applicable to the shares represented by the
certificate so legended.
