Unless Holder is exercising the conversion right set forth in Section 1.2, Holder shall also deliver to the Company a check for the aggregate Warrant Price for the Shares being purchased. 1.2 CONVERSION RIGHT. In lieu of exercising this Warrant as specified in Section 1.1, Holder may from time to time convert this Warrant, in whole or in part, into a number of Shares determined by dividing (a) the aggregate fair market value of the Shares or other securities otherwise issuable upon exercise of this Warrant minus the aggregate Warrant Price of such Shares by (b) the fair market value of one Share. The fair market value of the Shares shall be determined pursuant Section 1.4. 1.3 ALTERNATIVE STOCK APPRECIATION RIGHT. At Holder's option, the Company shall pay Holder the fair market value of the Shares issuable upon conversion of this Warrant pursuant to Section 1.2 in cash in lieu of such Shares. 1.4 FAIR MARKET VALUE. If the Shares are traded in a public market, the fair market value of the Shares shall be the closing price of the Shares (or the closing price of the Company's stock into which the Shares are convertible) reported for the business day immediately before Holder delivers its Notice of Exercise to the Company.

The foregoing notwithstanding, if Holder advises the Board of Directors in writing that Holder disagrees with such determination, then the Company and Holder shall promptly agree upon a reputable investment banking firm to undertake such valuation. If the valuation of such investment banking firm is greater than that determined by the Board of Directors, then all fees and expenses of such investment banking firm shall be paid by the Company. In all other circumstances, such fees and expenses shall be paid by Holder. 1.5 DELIVERY OF CERTIFTCATE AND NEW WARRANT. Promptly after Holder exercises or converts this Warrant, the Company shall deliver to Holder certificates for the Shares acquired and, if this Warrant has not been fully exercised or converted and has not expired, a new Warrant representing the Shares not so acquired. 1.6 REPLACEMENT OF WARRANTS. On receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, on delivery of an indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory in form and amount to the Company or, in the cast of mutilation, or surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, the Company at its expense shall execute and deliver, in lieu of this Warrant, a new warrant of like tenor. 1.7 REPURCHASE ON SALE, MERGER OR CONSOLIDATION OF THE COMPANY. 1.7.1. "ACQUISITION". For the purpose of this Warrant, "Acquisition" means any sale, license or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or any reorganization, consolidation, or merger of the Company where the holders of the Company's securities before the transaction beneficially own less than 50% of the outstanding voting securities of the surviving entity after the transaction. 1.7.2. ASSUMPTION OF WARRANT. If upon the closing of any Acquisition the successor entity assumes the obligations of this Warrant, then this Warrant shall be exercisable for the same securities, cash, and property as would be payable for the Shares issuable upon exercise or the unexercised portion of this Warrant as if such Shares were outstanding on the record date for the Acquisition and subsequent closing. The Warrant Price shall be adjusted accordingly, 1.7.3. NONASSUMPTION. If upon the closing of any Acquisition the successor entity does not assume the obligations of this Warrant and Holder has not otherwise exercised this Warrant in full, then the unexercised portion of this Warrant shall be deemed to have been automatically converted pursuant to Section 1.2 and thereafter Holder shall participate in the acquisition on the same terms as other holders of the same class of securities of the Company. 1.7.4. [RESERVED] 1.7.5. CONVERSION. Upon conversion of all of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company's Series E Preferred Stock into Common Stock, this Warrant shall automatically be exercisable only for such number of shares of Common Stock of the Company as the Holder hereof would have received had this Warrant been exercised in full for Series E Preferred Stock and then converted Into Common Stock on the date all issued and outstanding shares of Series E Preferred converted Into Common Stock. The Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to such conversion shall concurrently -2- <PAGE> 3 with the effectiveness of such conversion be proportionately adjusted. Upon such conversion of the Series E Preferred Stock into Common Stock, all references under this Warrant to Series E Preferred Stock shall be deemed to be references to Common Stock. ARTICLE 2.

If the Company declares or pays a dividend on its common stock (or the Shares if the Shares are securities other than common stock) payable in common stock, or other securities, subdivides the outstanding common stock into a greater amount of common stock, or, if the Shares are securities other than common stock, subdivides the Shares in a transaction that increases the amount of common stock into which the Shares are convertible, then upon exercise of this Warrant, for each Share acquired, Holder shall receive, without Cost to Holder, the total number and kind of securities to which Holder would have been entitled had Holder owned the Shares of record as of the date the dividend or subdivision occurred. 2.2 RECLASSIFICATION, EXCHANGE OR SUBSTITUTION. Upon any reclassification, exchange, substitution, or other event that results in a change of the number and/or class of the securities issuable upon exercise or conversion of this Warrant, Holder shall be entitled to receive, upon exercise or conversion of this Warrant, the number and kind of securities and property that Holder would have received for the Shares if this Warrant had been exercised immediately before such reclassification, exchange, substitution, or other event. Such an event shall include any automatic conversion of the outstanding or issuable securities of the Company of the same class or series as the Shares to common stock pursuant to the terms of the Company's Articles of Incorporation upon the closing of a registered public offering of the Company's common stock. The Company or its successor shall promptly issue to Holder a new Warrant for such new securities or other property. The new Warrant shall provide for adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Article 2 including, without limitation, adjustments to the Warrant Price and to the number of securities or property issuable upon exercise of the new Warrant. The provisions of this Section 2.2 shall similarly apply to successive reclassifications, exchanges, substitutions, or other events. 2.3 ADJUSTMENTS FOR COMBINATIONS, ETC. If the outstanding Shares are combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares, the Warrant Price shall be proportionately increased. 2.4 ADJUSTMENTS FOR DILUTING ISSUANCES.

If the Company takes any action affecting the Shares or its common stock other than as described above that adversely affects Holder's rights under this Warrant, the Warrant Price shall be adjusted downward and the number of Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be adjusted upward in such a manner that the aggregate Warrant Price of this Warrant is unchanged. 2.6 FRACTIONAL SHARES. No fractional Shares shall be issuable upon exercise or conversion of the Warrant and the number of Shares to be issued shall be rounded down to the nearest whole Share. If a fractional share interest arises upon any exercise or conversion of the Warrant, the Company shall eliminate such fractional share interest by paying Holder amount computed by multiplying the fractional interest by the fair market value or a full Share. 2.7 CERTIFICATE AS TO ADJUSTMENTS. Upon each adjustment of the Warrant Price, the Company at its expense shall promptly compute such adjustment, and furnish Holder with a certificate of its Chief Financial Officer setting forth such adjustment and the facts upon which such adjustment is based. The Company shall, upon written request, furnish Holder a certificate setting forth the Warrant Price in effect upon the date thereof and the series of adjustments leading to such Warrant Price.
