purchase order assignment program under which the Manufacturer will
assign customer purchase orders to the Contractor and request the
Contractor to purchase the required materials to fulfill such purchase

to be made, and the obligations to be assumed as set forth in this Agreement,
the parties agree as follows:
1. DEFINITIONS. In this Agreement, the following frequently used terms
are defined as set forth in this paragraph 1:
(a) The "CERTIFICATE" means the Purchase Order Package Certificate
attached hereto as Exhibit "A" required to be delivered with each request for
assignment of a purchase order. The form of Certificate is attached to this
Agreement as Exhibit "A" and made a part hereof.
(b) With respect to each purchase order submitted for assignment
hereunder, the Certificate will define the "PRODUCT" (the end product to be
delivered to the customer), the "CUSTOMER" (the business entity which issues the
purchase order), the "MATERIALS" (the materials required to produce the
Product), the "PREMISES" (Manufacturer's facility or such other facility
identified in the Certificate where the Materials will be delivered and Products
will be produced), the "P.O. PRICE" (the purchase price to be paid by the
Customer for the Products), the "P.O. DELIVERY DATE" (the date on which Products
are to be delivered to the Customer as set forth in the Certificate), and the

Contractor delivers notice of acceptance of the assignment of the P.O. is
referred to as the "ACCEPTANCE DATE". When an Accepted P.O. is made null and

assignment of the proceeds of the P.O. In such cases, the terms P.O. and

(f) The Manufacturer may repurchase an Accepted P.O. pursuant to
paragraph 8(b) below. In the absence of such repurchase, an Accepted P.O.
becomes a "DELINQUENT P.O." if the P.O. Price is not paid to the Contractor by
the earliest of (i) the due date for payment of the P.O. Invoice, (ii) one
hundred and five (105) days following the Funding Date if Contractor issues its
letter of credit or purchase order, (iii) thirty (30) days following the Funding
Date if Contractor advances funds by other than issuing its letter of credit or
purchase order, or (iv) the date on which the Accepted P.O. is canceled.

Agreement, the term "LOCK BOX" refers to the Contractor's lock box account; and

pursuant to Paragraph 6 below), the "CONTRACTOR'S DEAL FEES" (computed and paid
pursuant to Paragraph 7 below), and "CONTRACTOR'S EXPENSES" (computed and paid
pursuant to Paragraph 9 below). For purposes of computing the waiver of portions
of the Commitment Fee, the term "PRODUCT VOLUME" means the aggregate of (a) the
face amounts of all letters of credit issued by Contractor plus (b) the
aggregate amount of funds advanced by Contractor by other than issuing its
letters of credit, in connection with an Accepted P.O. for which a P.O. Invoice
is issued on or before the date on which payment of the Commitment Fee is due;

or not suit has been filed or judgment entered, including, without
limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and legal expenses. All amounts
owed to Contractor pursuant to this paragraph 18(c) shall carry interest
at the rate of 2% per month from the effective date of termination, or,
in the case of Contractor's costs of collection, from the date such costs
(iii) In the event of default by Manufacturer, and subject to any
agreements between Contractor and any Senior Lender, Contractor shall
further be entitled to exercise all the rights and remedies of a secured
party under the Uniform Commercial Code or as otherwise provided under
the Security Agreement. The proceeds of any amount recovered by
Contractor shall be applied, first, to the payment of Contractor's
reasonable costs and expenses in connection with the enforcement of
