        2.     APPOINTMENT OF ADP; RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES

               (a) SAGENT hereby appoints ADP as an authorized, non-exclusive
Value-Added Reseller. A "Value-Added Reseller" or "VAR" develops, owns and
licenses, to one or more End Users, one or more value-added Applications in
conjunction with a Product copy. A VAR licenses its Application with each
Product copy it distributes.

               (b) The relationship between the parties shall be that of VAR
licensing products and purchasing services as an independent contractor from
SAGENT and reselling and sublicensing to End Users. ADP and its employees are
not agents or representatives of SAGENT for any purpose and have no power or
authority to represent, act for, bind or commit SAGENT.

        3.     ADP'S RIGHTS, REPRESENTATIONS AND OBLIGATIONS

               (a) Subject to the terms and conditions herein, SAGENT hereby
grants and ADP hereby accepts (i) a worldwide, non-exclusive, nontransferable
(except as otherwise provided herein), perpetual, royalty-free right and license
to use the Products for internal use only by ADP's National Accounts Division or
any successor division to ADP's National Accounts Division to develop
Applications and Solutions, and to provide support and other services to End
Users, and for its other internal purposes; (ii) a worldwide, non-exclusive,
nontransferable (except as otherwise 

                                       2
   3

provided herein), perpetual, royalty-bearing right and license to copy,
distribute, license, display, sell, and market Product copies and User
Documentation for use solely as part of a Solution; (iii) a worldwide
non-exclusive nontransferable (except as provided herein), perpetual,
royalty-free right and license to use in unaltered form the SAGENT trademarks,
service marks or marketing logos solely to promote the Products, Applications or
Solutions, provided ADP obtains SAGENT's prior written approval for each new
usage. In addition to the foregoing, Sagent hereby grants to ADP a worldwide
non-exclusive, nontransferable (except as otherwise provided herein), perpetual,
royalty-bearing right and license to copy, distribute, license, display, sell
and market Add-On Components as described in Schedule B; and (iv) the right and
license to sublicense to End Users Product copies and User Documentation for
internal use solely as part of a Solution. SAGENT retains all title to and,
except as unambiguously licensed herein, all rights, including all intellectual
property rights to the Products, and all copies and derivative works thereof (by
whomever produced) other than interfaces, translations, applications and
intellectual property used to create Applications or Solutions, and any other
derivative work created by or on behalf of ADP in accordance with the terms of
this Agreement. ADP shall retain all title, rights and interest to all
interfaces, translations, augmentations, Applications and intellectual property
used to create the foregoing, and any other derivative work created by, for or
on behalf of ADP. If ADP desires to use additional Sagent products, or desires
to distribute additional Sagent products, both parties may execute additional
Exhibits and ADP shall pay to Sagent the applicable and then-current license
fees and royalty as set forth in the Price List. Any fees contemplated in the
immediately preceding sentence shall not exceed [*]% of the then current list
price for the applicable Sagent software. Upon payment of the applicable fees
for each Product copy as set forth in Section 8(a)(ii) herein, ADP's
royalty-bearing right and license as granted herein shall be fully paid up for
such Product copy.

               (b) Sagent will supply up to thirty-five (35) sets of its
Products, including documentation, for use pursuant to Section 3(a)(i) above at
no additional charge. ADP's National Accounts Division of Employer Services may
license additional Products in sets of twenty-five (25), including User
Documentation, for internal use at a cost of $[*] per Product set. Sagent shall
provide to ADP a set of Product master disks, and hereby authorizes ADP to use
the same to make Product copies for purposes consistent with Section 3(a)(ii)
above. Sagent shall provide to ADP electronic copies of User Documentation and
hereby authorizes ADP to incorporate the User Documentation into ADP's Solutions
and ADP's documentation pertaining to the Solutions.

               (c) ADP shall not (i) distribute the Product copies on a stand
alone basis, (ii) distribute Product copies in any way except as part of a
Solution, (iii) except under the circumstances contemplated in Section 10 hereof
or under the Escrow Agreement, modify or alter the source code of the Products
or Product copies in any way, or (iv) use any SAGENT trademark or trade name in
a way that implies ADP is an agency or branch of SAGENTs.

               (d) ADP agrees not to resell, distribute or sublicense Products
or Product copies to third parties other than End Users, except where such third
parties are approved in writing in advance by SAGENT, such approval not to be
unreasonably withheld.

               (e) ADP may make up to ten (10) back-up copies of Products used
internally to develop Applications, develop Solutions and or for demonstrations.

               (f) ADP shall ensure that the End User Agreement in electronic or
hard copy form accompanies each Product copy distributed by ADP. In addition,
ADP shall perform any other actions reasonably requested by Sagent to assure
adequate protection of SAGENTs interests in its intellectual property rights
contained in the Product(s) and Product copies. ADP shall not distribute or
sublicense Products pursuant to mass-market or "shrink-wrap" licenses in those
jurisdictions with respect to which ADP has been advised by legal counsel to ADP
that such licenses are not enforceable. The provisions of the preceding sentence
shall not impair the rights of ADP or End Users in respect of Products
distributed or licensed prior to the receipt of such advice by legal counsel.

               (g) The Product, Product copies and all related documentation are
protected under copyright and trade secret laws and contain proprietary
information of SAGENT and its licensers. ADP shall abide by the terms of any
proprietary notices or markings, and shall use the documentation and the Product
only for the purposes contemplated by this Agreement, and shall not disclose to
others or reproduce the Product (except as specifically permitted under this
Agreement), unless specifically authorized by SAGENT or required by law, or
relevant in any legal proceeding between 

*Certain information on this page has been omitted and filed separately with 
the Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the 
omitted portions.

the parties, and shall be liable for all loss or damage to SAGENT from any
failure to so abide or from any unauthorized disclosure in violation of this
Section 3(g) and Sections 3(c) and 3(d), and Article 4, of the Product, Product
copies, or related documentation by ADP or its agents. ADP shall not translate
any portion of the Product or Product copies or associated documentation into
any other format or language without the prior written consent of SAGENT. In the
event such translation is made by ADP, ADP shall own all rights to each
translation but shall grant to SAGENT a non-exclusive, royalty free license to
such translation.

               (h) ADP shall promptly notify SAGENT of any actual or suspected
unauthorized use or disclosure of the Confidential Information received from
SAGENT, of which it becomes aware and shall provide reasonable assistance to
SAGENT (at SAGENT's expense) in the investigation and prosecution of
unauthorized uses or disclosure.

               (i) Except as specifically permitted by this Agreement, ADP shall
not directly or indirectly (i) use any Confidential Information of SAGENT to
create any computer software program or user documentation which is
substantially similar to any Product; (ii) reverse engineer, disassemble or
decompile, or otherwise attempt to derive the source code for, any Product;
(iii) encumber, timeshare, rent or lease the rights granted by this Agreement;
(iv) copy, manufacture, adapt, localize, port or otherwise modify any Products
or other SAGENT Confidential Information or allow any agent or authorize any End
User of ADP to engage in similar conduct.

               (j) ADP does not have, and shall not claim that it has, any right
in or to any of the Products or the Confidential Information received from
SAGENT other than as specifically granted by this Agreement.

               (k) Any and all obligations of SAGENT to provide the Products, as
well as any technical assistance, will be subject in all respects to such United
States laws and regulations as will from time to time govern the license and
delivery of technology and products abroad by persons subject to the
jurisdiction of the United States, including the Export Administration Act of
1979, as amended, any successor legislation, and the Export Administration
Regulations issued by the Department of Commerce, Bureau of Export
Administration. ADP warrants that it will not export or reexport the Product,
Product copies, any Confidential Information or a Solution, or technical data
related thereto, except in conformity with such laws and regulations. ADP agrees
that unless prior written authorization is obtained from the Bureau of Export
Administration or the Export Administration Regulations explicitly permit the
reexport without such written authorization, it will not export, re-export, or
transship, directly or indirectly, the Product, Product copies, any of Sagent's
Confidential Information or a Solution to country groups S or Z (as defined in
the export Administration Regulations), or to any other country as to which the
U.S. Government has placed an embargo against the shipment of products which is
in effect during the term of this Agreement.

               (l) If at any time SAGENT determines that the laws of any country
other than Canada, U.S., Mexico, Benelux or U.K. are or become insufficient to
protect SAGENT's intellectual or proprietary rights in the Products, SAGENT may
notify ADP in writing as to such determination and, unless ADP disagrees with
such determination, ADP shall discontinue its distribution of Product(s) in such
country within thirty (30) days from the date of Sagent's written notice to ADP.
In the event that ADP disagrees with Sagent's determination, it shall so notify
Sagent. At Sagent's option, Sagent may institute arbitration proceedings as
described in Subsection (m) below to resolve any dispute pertaining to the
question whether the laws of any country are or become insufficient to protect
SAGENT's intellectual of propriety rights in the Product(s). Notwithstanding the
foregoing, and notwithstanding the results of such arbitration proceeding, ADP
shall be entitled to fulfill all existing contractual obligations in such
country. ADP shall use reasonable efforts to abide by this restriction in any
country the subject of a notification by Sagent as provided above and (i) not
disputed by ADP, or (ii) the subject of an arbitration proceeding pursuant to
which a determination was made that such country's laws are not sufficiently
protective as alleged by Sagent. As of the date of this Agreement, no country is
the subject of such distribution restrictions.

               (m) Except as may otherwise be provided herein, in the event of
any disputes between ADP and Sagent relating to the question described in the
third sentence of subsection (l) above, a representative designated by each of
the parties shall meet with each other within seven days of the request of
either party for such meeting, and shall engage in good faith negotiation to
resolve such dispute. In the event that after such seven (7) day period, the
parties have not resolved such dispute, either party may institute arbitration
proceedings pursuant to the Commercial Rules of 



                                       4
   5

the American Arbitration Association then in effect at the time of the
arbitration. The arbitration proceedings shall be held in Atlanta, George before
a panel of three arbitrators. Each party shall select an arbitrator from the
current listing of arbitrators registered with the American Arbitration
Association. The two arbitrators so selected shall within seven (7) days of such
selection mutually agree upon a third arbitrator registered with the American
Arbitration Association. In the event the two arbitrators are unable to agree
upon the third arbitrator, either party may request the president of the
American Arbitration Association to appoint the third arbitrator and the
decision of the president shall be final and binding upon the parties. The
arbitral award shall be issued within thirty (30) days following the arbitration
hearing, shall be in writing and shall be binding upon the parties.

               (n) This provision applies to all Products and Product Copies
acquired directly or indirectly by or on behalf of the United States Government.
The Product and Product Copies are commercial products, licensed on the open
market at market prices, and were developed entirely at private expense and
without the use of any U.S. Government funds. If the Product or Product Copies
are supplied to the Department of Defense, the U.S. Government acquires only the
license rights customarily provided to the public and specified in this
Agreement. If the Product or Product Copies are supplied to any unit or agency
of the U.S. Government other than the Department of Defense, the license to the
U.S. Government is granted only with restricted rights. Use, duplication, or
disclosure by the U.S. Government is subject to the restrictions set forth in
subparagraph (c) of the Commercial Computer Software Restricted Rights clause of
FAR 52.227-19.

               (o) ADP may permit properly licensed End Users to allow access
and use of Products to those entities providing services for such End Users
("Outsourcers"), whether in connection with a service bureau, facilities
management, outsourcing or other arrangement; provided, however, that such
Outsourcers may use the Products only as part of a Solution and only pursuant to
the applicable agreements entered into between such Outsourcers and End Users
("Outsourcing Agreements"), and not for the benefit of any third party. An
Outsourcers right to access and use Products shall expire upon the termination
or expiration of the applicable Outsourcing Agreements or End User Agreement,
whichever is earlier. By way of example (and not in limitation of the
foregoing), any such third party outsourcer shall be permitted to:

        (i)  access and execute the solution, including, without limitation, all
             related software tools, at any location on behalf of the End User; 
             and

        (ii) have access to a demonstration copy of the Products as part of the
             Solution.

        4.   CONFIDENTIALITY

               (a) Except as specifically allowed in this Agreement, neither
party shall use or disclose any Confidential Information of the other party,
except as required by law, regulation or court order. A party receiving
Confidential Information from the other shall use the same degree of care to
protect that Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own Confidential
Information, but shall in any event use reasonable care. Within fifteen (15)
days of the request of the disclosing party (which requests may not be made not
before the termination of this Agreement and all licenses granted herein, if
Sagent is the disclosing party), and in its sole discretion, the receiving party
shall either return to the disclosing party originals and copies of any
Confidential Information and all information, records and materials developed
from them by the receiving party (which shall not include the Applications or
related materials, if ADP is the receiving party), or destroy the same. Subject
to the exception set forth in the first sentence of this subsection (a) of
Section 4, and to the provisions of Section 12(k) of this Agreement, either
party may disclose only the existence, but not the contents, of this Agreement
without the prior consent of the other party, except that the contents may be
disclosed to parent companies or other controlling entities, and to financial or
legal advisors. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is understood that ADP shall
be entitled to disclose to third parties such information pertaining to this
Agreement as is necessary to effectuate the commercial intentions of this
Agreement. By way of example and not in limitation of the foregoing, ADP shall
be entitled to disclose that it is an authorized value added reseller of SAGENT.
The parties acknowledge that ADP is in the business of developing and licensing
computer software applications, and agree that nothing in this Agreement,
including this Section 4(a), shall preclude or limit ADP's rights to develop
other applications, or applications similar to the Products, as long as ADP does
not use Sagent's Confidential Information to do so.

                                       5
   6

               (b) The parties acknowledge that money damages will not be an
adequate remedy if this section is breached and therefore, either party may, in
addition to any other legal or equitable remedies, seek an injunction or similar
equitable relief against such breach.

        5. TRAINING AND SERVICES

               (a) ADP will provide first line support for the Products to End
Users. Such support shall include, without limitation, receipt of calls, problem
and question intake, installation assistance, problem identification and
assistance, efforts to create repeatable demonstrations of reported Product
errors, and, if applicable, the replacement of any defective media or
distribution of updates. SAGENT shall have no obligation to furnish any
assistance, information or documentation to any third party.

               (b) In consideration of ADP's payment of applicable fees set
forth in Section 8 herein, Sagent agrees to provide to ADP Basic Maintenance;
and Level 1 Support and Level 2 Support in accordance with the terms and
conditions set forth in Sagent's Premier Support Package, a copy of which is
attached hereto as Schedule C hereto and incorporated into this Agreement by
reference. Pursuant to Sagent's Premier Support Package, Sagent shall provide
second level support and maintenance that will enable ADP to perform support and
maintenance for its customers. Sagent will provide telephone consultation to ADP
with respect to any customer questions which ADP cannot adequately answer, and
will provide bug and error fixes, work around, and updates in accordance with
the response guideline below, or, if not related to a reported problem, as they
become available. Without limitation of the other provisions hereof, to the
extent Sagent provides an error correction through a temporary fix (which shall
at a minimum consist of sufficient programming and operating instructions to
implement the error correction), Sagent shall include the error correction
promptly in a subsequent release of the Product. From time to time, but in no
event less frequently than once per twelve (12) months, Sagent shall issue to
ADP new releases containing error corrections and other modifications and
enhancements. Sagent shall provide reasonable assistance to help ADP install and
operate each new release. Sagent agrees that the warranty obligations set forth
in Section 6(a)(iv) shall remain in effect throughout the Maintenance Terms (as
defined herein).

               SAGENT shall assign a severity level in accordance with the
standards set forth in Schedule C to each reported Product problem or question,
and confirm with ADP the severity level so assigned, and SAGENT's efforts to
answer each such problem or question shall be commensurate with such severity
level. In the event that there is a disagreement between the parties over the
severity level assigned to a problem, the dispute shall be escalated to senior
management of both parties for resolution. SAGENT shall resolve "severity level
one" problems or questions within one (1) business day, "severity level two"
problems or questions within two (2) business days, and other problems or
questions within five (5) business days. ADP shall provide such reasonable
assistance to SAGENT as SAGENT may reasonably require for the performance of its
obligations pursuant to this Section 5(b).

               (c) SAGENT will provide the following training, in each case to
occur in Atlanta, Georgia unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties
hereto:

                      Customer Support: Sagent will train two ADP Customer
        Support Representatives to provide first line support for Sagent

                      Sales Training: Sagent will provide two half day sales
        training courses to ADP's APM's, the first to occur in July 1997 and the
        other to take place in August 1997.

                      Basic Training: Sagent will teach one two day course in 
        Atlanta for up to twelve (12) developers, as designated by ADP.

                      Train The Trainer Program: Sagent will train such ADP
        trainers designated by ADP in how to train ADP customers in the
        implementation, administration and maintenance of Sagent Products. This
        training will include one "class mentoring" of the first ADP taught
        course, by a Sagent certified trainer. This will be held in October 1997
        or at another time mutually agree upon.

                      Advanced Training Course: Sagent will provide one advanced
        class for two ADP developers in July 1997 or at another time mutually 
        agreed upon.

                                       6
   7

               (d) If ADP desires to contract with Sagent for additional
support, installation, training, or any other need, Sagent will provide
installation support and training classes for $[*] per day, plus reasonable
expenses. All other support is offered at current and prevailing rates.

               Sagent will assist ADP in its first four (4) ADP sales
opportunities at no cost to ADP. Such assistance by Sagent will include
participation in sales calls and demonstrations.

               (e) Development:

               ADP agrees to pay Sagent $[*], at the time of delivery, for
the delivery to ADP of SAGENT2 and of the items listed in items 1 and 2
hereinbelow (the "Deliverables") before June 30, 1997.

               1) Support for Centura SQL databases as Data Sources.

               2) Assistance in completing departmental security for the SAGENT

which conform to the specifications set forth in Attachment C hereto.

               Any other mutually agreed upon engineering work to be performed
by SAGENT for ADP will be done on a time and materials basis as a mutually
agreed upon rate.

               Pursuant to Sagent's Basic Maintenance obligations, Sagent shall
maintain and support the Deliverables and ensure compatibility of the
Deliverables on an ongoing basis with all future Product releases.

               Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 3(a) hereof, is
expressly agreed that the Deliverables shall belong jointly to Sagent and ADP
and shall be considered the joint property of Sagent and ADP for purposes of
this Agreement. To the extent that ADP is not the joint owner of the
Deliverables, Sagent in consideration of $[*] and other good and valuable
consideration the receipt and adequacy of which hereby are acknowledged, hereby
irrevocably assigns to ADP, its successors and assigns, (i) joint rights, title
and interests in and to the copyrights of the Deliverables and all renewals and
extensions of the copyrights that may be secured under existing or future laws,
and (ii) joint rights, title and interests in all other property rights in the
Deliverables. To the extent that Sagent is not the joint owner of the
Deliverables, ADP, in consideration of $[*] and other good and valuable
consideration the receipt and adequacy of which hereby are acknowledged, hereby
irrevocable assigns to SAGENT, its successors and assigns (x) joint rights,
title and interest in and to the copyrights of the Deliverables and all renewal
and extensions of the copyrights that may be secured under existing or future
laws, and (y) joint rights, title and interest in all other property rights in
the Deliverables. Each party shall, upon request by the other party hereto and
at the other party's expense, promptly execute, acknowledge or deliver any
documents or instruments deemed reasonably necessary by the other party to
document, enforce, protect or otherwise perfect such other party's copyright and
other interests in the Deliverables. Neither party hereto shall have the right
to license or distribute the Deliverables, without the other party's consent,
except that ADP shall be permitted to license and otherwise distribute the
Deliverables as part of a Solution as otherwise contemplated in this Agreement.

               (f) Acceptance

               Upon completion of the development performed by Sagent in
accordance with Section 5(e) of this Agreement, Sagent shall give written notice
thereof to ADP and shall deliver the Deliverables to ADP for evaluation,
including all documentation and other materials necessary for the proper
utilization by ADP of the Deliverables. ADP shall develop and perform during a
thirty (30) day period following receipt of the Deliverables, such acceptance
tests it may wish to perform to verify that the Deliverables conform to the
specifications. If the Deliverables pass such acceptance tests, ADP shall
deliver to Sagent written notification thereof and the Deliverables shall be
considered accepted. If the Deliverables do not pass such acceptance tests, ADP
shall promptly deliver to Sagent written notification thereof, setting forth in
detail those features of functions that do not substantially conform in all
material respects with the Specifications. Sagent, at its own expense, shall use
reasonable efforts to correct such deficiencies within thirty (30) calendar days
from the date of ADP's deficiency notice, whereupon Sagent shall deliver the
corrected Deliverables to ADP for evaluation. ADP may then perform additional
acceptance tests for a period not to exceed thirty (30) calendar days from the
date Sagent delivered the corrected deliverables to ADP. If the Deliverables, in
ADP's 

                                       7

   8

reasonable judgment, still do not conform to the Specifications, (a) ADP may
reject the Deliverables or continue the process described in this subsection (f)
until ADP, in its sole discretion, notifies Sagent of acceptance or of rejection
or (2) Sagent may notify ADP of Sagent's decision to discontinue this process.
If ADP does not notify Sagent in writing of acceptance or rejection of the
Deliverables within ninety (90) calendar days of the delivery of the
Deliverables, the Deliverables shall be deemed accepted.

               (g) Failure of Acceptance Testing

               If ADP rejects the Deliverables pursuant to subsection (f) above,
then neither ADP nor Sagent shall have any further obligation to the other with
regard to the Deliverables.

        6. LIMITED WARRANTIES AND INDEMNIFICATION

               (a) SAGENT represents and warrants that (i) it has been duly
authorized and has full power to enter into and perform this Agreement; (ii) the
Products and the Deliverables will not to the knowledge of Sagent, after due
inquiry, contain any viruses, locks, time-bombs or other devices (collectively,
"Devices") that will cause any software or hardware used by ADP to be erased, to
become inoperable or incapable of processing, or to otherwise damage or
negatively affect the performance of said software or hardware in any manner,
and to the extent that the Products or the Deliverables shall contain any
Devices, Sagent shall, upon notice by ADP or upon learning of the same, replace
the Products or the Deliverables, as applicable, with Products or Deliverables
containing no Devices; (iii) the execution, delivery and performance of this
Agreement by Sagent will not violate any applicable legal requirement, the
violation of which would result in a material breach by Sagent of its
obligations hereunder, and (iv) during the first ninety (90) days from the date
ADP receives an unmodified Product ("Warranty Period") from SAGENT, the Products
will, under normal use and operating conditions, be free of defects in materials
and workmanship and will substantially conform to the User Documentation and the
specifications set forth in Attachment A hereto.

               EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS
               AGREEMENT, ADP AND ANY END USER ACCEPT THE PRODUCTS "AS IS" WITH
               NO OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND,
               INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR
               FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. ADP MAKES NO WARRANTIES
               REGARDING THE APPLICATION(S) OR SOLUTIONS. ADP WARRANTS THAT THE
               EXECUTION, DELIVERY AND PERFORMANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT BY ADP WILL
               NOT VIOLATE ANY APPLICABLE LEGAL REQUIREMENT, THE VIOLATION OF
               WHICH WOULD RESULT IN A MATERIAL BREACH BY ADP OF ITS OBLIGATION
               HEREUNDER.

               (b) Sagent represents that, as of the date of this Agreement, it
is not currently involved in any litigation (and is not aware of any causes of
action or threatened litigation) relating to infringement by SAGENT of the
intellectual property rights of third parties. SAGENT shall indemnify, defend,
save and hold ADP and its officers, directors, agents, affiliates and employees
harmless from all liability, damages, suits, fines, judgments, losses, claims,
actions, and costs and expenses including attorneys' fees (and other costs and
expenses incidental thereto), incurred by any such person, in connection with
investigating, preparing or defending any such claim relating to or arising (1)
out of any breach of representation or warranty of Sagent in this Agreement; (2)
out of any failure by Sagent in the installation, maintenance or support of
Products, or in training as contemplated in this Agreement; or (3) on account of
any claim or allegation that the Product(s) or the Deliverables, or the use or
distribution thereof as contemplated hereunder, infringe upon any patent,
copyright, trademark or trade secret or other property rights or proprietary
interests of any other party. Upon receipt by a person entitled to
indemnification under this Section 6(b) of actual notice of a claim, action or
proceeding against such person in respect of which indemnity may be sought
hereunder, such person shall promptly notify Sagent with respect thereto. In any
event, failure to so notify Sagent shall not relieve Sagent from any liability
which Sagent may have on account of this indemnity except to the extent that
Sagent shall have been materially prejudiced by such failure, provided that if
such failure shall result in additional expense to Sagent such additional
expense shall not be indemnified hereunder. Sagent shall be entitled to assume,
and if requested by ADP shall assume, the defense of any litigation or
proceeding in respect of which indemnity may be sought hereunder. In any such


                                       8
   9

litigation or proceeding the defense of which Sagent has so assumed, ADP (and
any other person entitled to indemnification under this Section 6(b)) shall have
the right to participate in such litigation or proceeding and to retain its own
counsel, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of
such person. ADP agrees to give Sagent reasonable assistance (at no cost to ADP)
in connection with SAGENT's defense of any such claim. SAGENT will not be
responsible for any settlement it does not approve in writing but if settled
with such approval, SAGENT agrees to indemnify ADP and any such person entitled
to indemnification under this Section 6(b) from and against any loss or
liability by reason of such settlement. In addition to the foregoing
indemnification to be provided by Sagent, in the event that use of the Products
or any part thereof is enjoined, Sagent shall, in the following order of
priority, at its expense and as mutually agreed: (X) procure the right for ADP
and its End Users to continue to use the Products or the affected part thereof;
(Y) replace the Products or the affected portion thereof with other suitable
non-infringing software; or (Z) modify the Products or the affected portion
thereof so as to be non-infringing, without detracting from the overall
performance of the Products. If none of the foregoing remedies set forth in the
immediately preceding sentence are commercially feasible, Sagent shall refund
the aggregate fees paid by ADP for the Products prorated on a three (3) year
basis from the Effective Date. The foregoing obligation of SAGENT does not apply
with respect to Product or portions or components thereof (i) to the extent not
supplied by SAGENT, (ii) to the extent made in whole or in part in accordance to
ADP specifications, if the infringement results from Sagent's conformity with
ADP's specifications, (iii) to the extent modified after shipment by ADP, if the
alleged infringement is caused by such modification, (iv) combined with other
products, processes or materials not approved by SAGENT to the extent the
alleged infringement relates to such combination, (v) where ADP continues
allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof by Sagent and
provided by Sagent with a non-infringing replacement for the infringing portion
of the Products in accordance with the provisions of subsection (b)(Y) or (b)(Z)
of this Section 6 or (vi) to the extent that ADP's infringement results from the
use by ADP of the Product not strictly in accordance with the License. The
provisions of this Section 6(b) shall survive the termination of this Agreement
until thirty (30) days after the expiration of the applicable statute of
limitations in respect of each applicable cause of action.

               (c) Upon SAGENT's breach of Section 6(a)(iv) hereof, SAGENT
shall, in its sole discretion and at its option, provide modifications to keep
the Products in substantial conformance with the Product specifications and the
related User Documentation, or replace the Products. In addition to the
foregoing, Sagent shall provide ADP with such additional support required by ADP
in order that ADP may provide support to its End Users. For purposes of
clarification, the parties agree that the provisions of this Section 6(c) shall
not be in limitation of the provision of Sections 5(b), 9 and 10 hereof.

               (d) ADP and SAGENT shall, at their own expense, indemnify,
defend, save and hold harmless each other from and against any claim, loss,
expense, or judgment (including reasonable attorneys' fees) which arises from
misrepresentations made in this Agreement by the other party.

               (e) ADP shall, at its expense, indemnify, defend, save and hold
harmless SAGENT from and against any claim, loss, expense, or judgment
(including reasonable attorneys' fees) to the extent the same arises (i) from
any warranties granted in excess of the representations, warranties, covenants
and other agreements made by SAGENT in this Agreement; (ii) the marketing of
Product copies by ADP (except as contemplated whether explicitly or otherwise in
this Agreement); or (iii) infringement by the Application or Solution or any
non-Product related material supplied by ADP of any patent, copyright, trademark
or trade secret of any third party, except to the extent that such infringement
arises from the use of the Product as intended hereunder. Upon receipt by SAGENT
of actual notice of a claim, action or proceeding against SAGENT in respect of
which indemnity may be sought hereunder, SAGENT shall promptly notify ADP with
respect thereto. In any event, failure to so notify ADP shall not relieve ADP
from any liability which ADP may have on account of this indemnity except to the
extent that ADP shall have been materially prejudiced by such failure, provided
that if such failure shall result in additional expense to ADP such additional
expense shall not be indemnified hereunder. ADP shall be entitled to assume, and
if requested by SAGENT shall assume, the defense of any litigation or proceeding
in respect of which indemnity may be sought hereunder. In any such litigation or
proceeding the defense of which ADP has so assumed, SAGENT shall have the right
to participate in such litigation or proceeding and to retain its own counsel,
but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of SAGENT.
SAGENT agrees to give ADP reasonable assistance (at no cost to SAGENT) in
connection with ADP's defense of any such claim. ADP will not be responsible for
any settlement it does not approve in writing but if settled with such approval,
ADP agrees to indemnify SAGENT from and against any loss or liability by reason
of such settlement. The provisions of this 


                                       9
   10

Section 6(e) shall survive until thirty (30) days after the expiration of the
applicable statute of limitations in respect to each cause of action.

               (f) Sagent represents and warrants that the Products will (i)
record, store, process and present calendar dates falling on or after January 1,
2000, in the same manner, and with the same functionality, as the Products
store, process and present calendar dates on or before December 31, 1999; (ii)
lose no functionality with respect to the introduction of records containing
dates falling on or after January 1, 2000, and (iii) produce no logical or
arithmetical inconsistency when dealing with dates beyond December 31, 1999.

        7.     LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

               NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE HEREIN TO THE CONTRARY, IN NO EVENT
WILL ADP OR SAGENT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES
(INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST REVENUES OR PROFITS), EVEN IF ADVISED OF
THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. EXCEPT FOR SAGENT'S OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTIONS
6(b) AND 6(d) ABOVE, AND ADP'S OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTIONS 6(d) AND 6(e) ABOVE,
EACH PARTY'S LIABILITY TO THE OTHER PARTY OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR A CLAIM OF ANY
KIND RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY PRODUCT, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT OR
WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE
AGGREGATE OF FEES PAID TO SAGENT UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

        8.     FEES, DISCOUNTS, PAYMENTS, RECORDS, AUDITS

               (a) The quantities of Products to be purchased by ADP hereunder,
and the fees to be paid in respect thereof, are as follows:

                      (i) Minimum guarantee. Subject to the remainder of this
        Agreement, ADP agrees to purchase not less than [ * ] ([ * ]) units of
        Product during the Initial Term. Of such [ * ] ([ * ]) Products, at
        least [ * ] ([ * ]) shall be purchased during the first four quarters of
        the Initial Term. During the fifth quarter, ADP shall purchase at least
        such number of Products equal to the excess, if any, of [ * ] ([ * ])
        over the number of Products purchased during the first four quarters;
        and during the sixth quarter of the Initial Term, ADP shall purchase at
        least such number of Products equal to the excess, if any, of [ * ]
        ([ * ]) over the number of Products purchased during the first five
        quarters.

                      (ii) Prices. The prices of Products shall be as follows:
        The fee to be paid by ADP for each of the first forty (40) units of
        Product (as described in Part I of Schedule B) provided by Sagent to ADP
        and subsequently licensed or distributed to an End User is [ * ] Dollars
        ($[ * ]). This fee represents a [ * ]% discount from the list price for
        each Product. After forty (40) units of Product have been purchased by
        ADP hereunder, the price of all subsequent units of Product shall be 

        [ * ] Dollars ($[ * ]) or [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) of the then current
        list price of Product, whichever is lower. The fees for the add-on
        components specified in Part III of Schedule B, if ADP elects to
        purchase same, will be [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) of SAGENT's price for such
        components, as set forth in such Part III, or if lower [ * ] percent 
        ([ * ]%) of Sagent's then current list price for such components. SAGENT
        shall have the right, in its sole discretion and from time to time upon
        sixty (60) days' prior written notice to ADP (but not during the Initial
        Term or the first renewal term of this Agreement) to change the prices
        on its Price List, to add or delete Products from the Price List or
        implement special promotional programs. If ADP has submitted a bid(s) to
        potential End User(s) by the date of such written notice, then ADP may
        order Product at the previous price to fill such specific bid(s) for a
        period of ninety (90) days from the date ADP receives such notice, or
        until the price change takes effect, whichever is longer. ADP shall be
        responsible for all use taxes, sales taxes, and similar taxes pertaining
        to the Products, other than taxes based upon Sagent's income.

                      (iii) Payments. ADP agrees to pay SAGENT [ * ]
        Dollars ($[ * ]) upon the execution of this
        Agreement, in full payment for the first forty (40) Products. All

                                       10

* Certain information on this page has been omitted and filed separately with
  the Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the
  omitted portions.
   11

        additional Products licensed by ADP shall be paid within thirty (30)
        days of ADP's receipt of SAGENT's invoice for such Product(s).

               (b) The parties agree that any license granted by ADP to an End
User which license is terminated within ninety (90) days after being implemented
by ADP may be relicensed by ADP to another End User without the payment of any
additional royalty fee. ADP shall have the right to set the fees it charges to
End Users in its sole discretion.

               (c) For each Product copy licensed to an End User by ADP, ADP
shall maintain complete and accurate records (the "Copy Record") indicating by
quarter the Product name and the number of licenses to an End User. Within
thirty (30) business days after the end of each quarter, ADP shall deliver to
SAGENT the Copy Records applicable to that quarter in a report, accompanied by
any additional payment due to SAGENT relating to such Copy Records.

               (d) No more than once during the Initial Term, Renewal Term or
any subsequent renewal period, at SAGENT's expense and with sixty (60) days'
prior written notice, SAGENT may audit all records of ADP relating to this
Agreement solely for purposes of determining the accuracy of payments during
ADPs normal business hours. If an audit reveals that the amount which should
have been paid to SAGENT is at least ten percent (10%) more than the amount
reported by ADP, SAGENT's sole and exclusive remedy shall be to have ADP pay the
reasonable cost of the audit to SAGENT. Any shortfall uncovered as a result of
an audit as well as the cost of the audit, if required by the preceding
sentence, shall be paid by ADP to SAGENT within thirty (30) days of the date
SAGENT notifies ADP that an amount is due.

               (e) ADP shall pay any amounts owed to SAGENT on the date
specified and according to the terms of this Agreement. If a due date is not
specified, such payment shall be made by ADP within thirty (30) days after ADP's
receipt of SAGENTs invoice. Each party is solely responsible for its own
expenses incurred in the performance of this Agreement. If ADP fails to make any
payment when due, unless ADP has notified SAGENT of its objections to the amount
or basis of such payment, SAGENT may upon fifteen (15) days' advance written
notice suspend delivery of Products or services until the past due payment is
made. Sagent promptly will refund to ADP any overpayments made by ADP.

               (f) Payments will be in United States dollars. Any overdue amount
shall bear interest at a rate of eight percent (8%) per annum or the maximum
rate allowed by law if less. Costs of conversion, outside collection and related
bank charges shall be paid by the party owing such payment. ADP shall be
responsible for all taxes, and tariffs assessed by a taxing authority against
ADP related to this Agreement (including any value added or sales taxes) other
than taxes measured by or in relation to SAGENT's income. All shipments by
SAGENT shall be F.O.B. origin. Risk of loss and damage will pass to ADP upon
delivery to ADP.

               (g) Discounts do not apply to User Documentation ordered
separately, marketing collateral materials, or other products or services
offered by SAGENT and not mentioned in Schedules A and B. For avoidance of doubt
there will be no fees payable by ADP to SAGENT for End User Documentation
reproduced by ADP pursuant to this Agreement, whether for ADP's own internal use
or for distribution to End Users.

               (h) Subsequent to the end of the Term as defined below, discounts
shall be in accordance with SAGENT's standard applicable published discount
schedule in effect at that time or as otherwise negotiated between the parties.

               (i) The prices and terms of maintenance and support are as set
forth below. This Section 8(i) shall survive any termination or expiration of
this Agreement pursuant to Section 9 hereof, except that it may be terminated by
Sagent effective upon thirty (30) days' written notice to ADP upon the failure
by ADP to pay the then current MS Fee, unless ADP shall cure such failure within
such notice period.

               (A) Provided that ADP shall pay to Sagent the fees described in
                   this Section 8(i), ADP shall be entitled 

                                       11
   12

                  to Basic Maintenance, Level 1 Support and Level 2
                  Support, to be provided to ADP in accordance with the
                  provisions of Section 5(b) hereof.

              (B) The fee for Basic Maintenance, Level 1 Support and Level 2
                  Support (the "MS Fee") for the Initial Term (the first
                  "Maintenance Term") shall be [*] Dollars ($[*]).

              (C) At the end of the first Maintenance Term, and at the end of
                  each eighteen month period following sequentially thereafter
                  (each period, a "Maintenance Term"), Sagent shall provide to
                  ADP an invoice for the MS Fee in respect of the immediately
                  succeeding Maintenance Term, and ADP shall be entitled to
                  renewal and continuation of Sagent's obligations under Section
                  5(b) by payment to Sagent of the applicable MS Fee as provided
                  herein. However, any such invoice shall comply with the
                  maximum price provisions set forth herein. No increase in the
                  MS Fee shall be permitted, except that upon written notice by
                  Sagent to ADP prior to the final sixty (60) days of any
                  Maintenance Term, Sagent shall be entitled to increase its MS
                  Fee for the next succeeding Maintenance Term by no more than
                  [*] percent ([*]%) above its fee for the then current
                  Maintenance Term.

              (D) The MS Fee for the first Maintenance Term shall be payable as
                  follows: [*] Dollars ($[*]) shall be payable to Sagent within
                  thirty (30) days after the execution of this Agreement; and
                  [*] Dollars ($[*]) shall be payable to Sagent twelve (12)
                  Months after such initial portion of the first MS Fee is due
                  and payable. The MS Fee for each subsequent Maintenance Term
                  shall be payable in two installments in the same manner as
                  payable in respect of the first Maintenance Term, whereby the
                  first installment, equal to two-thirds of the applicable MS
                  Fee, is due at the commencement of any such Maintenance Term,
                  and the second installment, equal to one-third of the
                  applicable MS Fee, is due after two thirds of the applicable
                  Maintenance Term has expired.

              (j) In consideration of the training services to be provided to
ADP by SAGENT as outlined in Section 5(c) of this Agreement (the "Training
Services"), ADP agrees to pay $[*]. There is an additional cost of $[*] per
additional trainer enrolled in the SAGENT Train the Trainer program. The fees
for Training Services do not include taxes and/or reasonable travel expenses.

        9. TERM AND TERMINATION

               (a) The term of this Agreement shall be eighteen (18) months from
the Effective Date ("Initial Term"). At the expiration of the Initial Term, this
Agreement may be automatically renewed by ADP for one additional eighteen (18)
month period (a "Renewal Term") unless ADP provides to SAGENT thirty (30) days'
prior written notice of nonrenewal. During the Renewal Term, the same terms
applicable to the Initial Term shall apply, except that the minimum purchase by
ADP of Products shall be [*] ([*]) Products per [*].

               (b) This Agreement may be terminated by either party: (i) upon
breach by the other party of any material term of this Agreement or for failure
to pay any amount when due, upon thirty (30) days' prior written notice by the
non-breaching party to the other, unless the cause is susceptible of being cured
and is cured within the thirty (30) day notice period or such other period
agreed to by both parties; (ii) immediately upon written notice to the other
party in the event the other party breaches Sections 3(i) or 4(a) hereof, (iii)
immediately upon written notice to the other party if a receiver or other
liquidating officer is appointed for substantially all of the assets or business
of the other party, or if such other party makes an assignment for the benefit
of creditors, or becomes insolvent or bankrupt or the rights or interest of such
other party under this Agreement become attached under any bankruptcy,
insolvency or reorganization proceedings. The date termination becomes effective
is called the "Termination Date".

               (c) If this Agreement is terminated for any reason, all rights
granted under this Agreement shall terminate, except, as set forth in this
Section 9(c) and in Sections 9(f) and 9(g), and except for ADPs continued
license under Section 3(a), and its right to use Confidential Information for
the sole purpose of fulfilling any existing contractual

obligations for Products and services to End Users, and any proposals to
prospective End Users which have been made prior to the effective date of any
such termination, and for the purpose of licensing to prospective End Users any
prepaid Products, the fees in respect of which are not otherwise refundable to
ADP hereunder. Use after the Termination Date shall be subject to all the
restrictions contained herein and those provisions of this Agreement which
survive termination. In addition, without limitation of anything else contained
herein, the provisions of Section 8(i), and, if the MS Fee is paid by ADP as
provided in Section 8(i), Sections 4, 5(b), 6(a)(iv), 6(d) and 10, and this
Section 9, shall survive the termination of this Agreement until the expiration
of the Final Maintenance Term. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement,
except as otherwise provided herein, ADP will immediately cease to be an
authorized SAGENT VAR and shall refrain from representing itself as such and
from using any SAGENT trademark or trade name. Upon termination of this
Agreement by ADP for Sagent's breach, without limitation of ADP's other rights
and remedies hereunder, Sagent shall immediately refund to ADP any prepayment
for Product not licensed to End Users during the term hereof, and if the
Maintenance Term shall be terminated by such termination of this agreement,
Agent shall refund to ADP a pro rata portion of the MS Fee previously paid by
ADP representing the unexpired portion of the then current Maintenance Term. In

an escrow agreement with Filesafe, Inc., d/b/a/ SourceFile ("SourceFile"), a
copy of which is attached as Schedule D ("Escrow Agreement"), and pursuant
thereto SAGENT has placed in escrow with SourceFile, fully annotated source code
of the Product(s). Sagent further covenants that the materials deposited with
SourceFile at all times will constitute a correct set of the source code of the
Products, as well as any corrections, enhancements and other revisions received
by ADP hereunder, or to which ADP becomes entitled under this Agreement
(collectively, the "Source Code"). Sagent further grants to ADP its successors
and assigns a worldwide irrevocable nonexclusive right and license to use,
execute, reproduce, display, perform, and distribute and prepare derivative or
collective works based upon the Source Code for the benefit of End Users who
enter into End User Agreements with ADP as contemplated in this Agreement, such
right and license to be exercisable by ADP solely following a Release Condition
and solely for the purpose of exercising its rights and performing its
obligations as contemplated under this Agreement. SAGENT further covenants to
remain bound to and in compliance with the provisions of the Escrow Agreement
throughout the term of this Agreement and each Maintenance Term, and hereby
waives any defense that the Escrow Agreement is invalid or unenforceable. SAGENT
agrees to the addition of ADP as a beneficiary under the Escrow Agreement,
subject to ADP's sending the fully executed copy of the form of acknowledgment
required by the Escrow Agreement and ADP's payment of the annual fee (which
shall not exceed $250 annually) applicable to a beneficiary's participation in
the Escrow Agreement.

               (b) ADP shall be entitled to receive a copy of the Source Code
from escrow in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Escrow Agreement.

   14

4(i) of the Escrow Agreement, SAGENT agrees that the following conditions shall
be deemed to constitute a Release Condition:

               SAGENT materially breaches the provisions of Section 5(b) as to
               maintenance of the Product(s) or Add-On Components;

        Without limitation of the foregoing, in the event that Sagent shall for
any reason fail to resolve a Severity Level 1 Problem with a workaround, error
correction or other solution within ten (10) calendar days after the problem has
been reported to Sagent, and with an error correction within one hundred eighty
(180) days after the problem has been reported to Sagent, ADP shall have the
right to terminate this Agreement, and the parties further agree that such
circumstance shall be deemed to be a "Release Condition" under the Escrow
Agreement, entitling ADP to receipt of the Source Code.

               In the event of such breach or such failure, or any condition
specified in Section 4(i) of the Escrow Agreement, ADP shall notify SourceFile
of the occurrence of the Release Condition and SAGENT agrees not to issue
"Contrary Instructions" as such term is defined in Section 4(ii) of the Escrow
Agreement, or to prevent in any other way the release of the Source Code to ADP.
SAGENT further agrees in the event of such failure, to instruct SourceFile to:
(i) waive the sixty (60) day waiting period specified in Section 4(iii) of the
Escrow Agreement and (ii) immediately release the Source Code to ADP for
purposes of maintaining and supporting the Products. In furtherance of the
foregoing intentions, Sagent represents and warrants to ADP that Sagent has
delivered to SourceFile a fully executed letter of instructions in the form of
Schedule E hereto (the "Instructions"), and Sagent further covenants that it
shall take no action to revoke, alter, or circumvent the intention of, the
Instructions. In addition, SAGENT hereby grants to ADP the right to contract
with SAGENT's vendors in furtherance of the license described in this Section
10(b). In the event of any dispute between the parties pertaining to a Release
Condition, actual or deemed, the parties agree that the pendency of such dispute
shall not prevent or delay the release to ADP of the Source Code.
