However, (a) if this Agreement is terminated without cause by the Company, or is terminated for cause by the Carraway, such nonsolicitation agreement of the Carraway will thereupon terminate, otherwise (b) the covenants set forth in this Section 9 will survive any termination of this Agreement. c. During any portion of the Non-Compete Period during which Carraway is not employed by the Company, Carraway will not, in any Geographic Area, directly or indirectly, knowingly solicit or encourage any customer or client of the Company to engage the services of Carraway or any person or entity (other than the Company) in which Carraway is a partner, shareholder, director, officer, employee, principal, member, manager, agent, trustee, consultant or engaged in any other relationship or capacity. d. If any provision of Sections 8 or 9 (the "RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS") are held to be unenforceable because of the scope, duration, area of its applicability or otherwise, it is the intention of the parties that the court making such determination will modify such scope, duration or area, or all of them, and that such provision will then be applicable in such modified form.

"NON-COMPETE PERIOD" will mean the period during which the Consultant Services are provided to the Company and for an additional period of one year following the termination of the Consultant Services. 10.

Since the Company will be irreparably damaged if the provisions of Sections 8 or 9 are not specifically enforced, the Company will be entitled to (i) an injunction or any other appropriate decree of specific performance (without the necessity of posting any bond or other security in connection therewith) restraining any violation or non-fulfillment of Carraway's or a Representative's covenants under Sections 8 or 9, (ii) damages in an amount equal to all compensation, profits, monies, accruals, increments or other benefits derived or received by Carraway (or any associated party deriving such benefits) as a result of any such breach of Carraway's or a Representative's covenants under Sections 8 or 9, and (iii) indemnification against any other losses, damages, costs and expenses, including actual attorneys' fees and court costs, which may be incurred by the Company and which result from or <PAGE> CONSULTANT AGREEMENT PAGE 9 arise out of any such breach of Carraway's or a Representative's covenants under Sections 8 or 9. Such remedies will not be exclusive and will be in addition to any other remedy, at law or in equity, which the Company may have for any breach or threatened breach of Sections 8 or 9 by Carraway or its Representatives. 11. NO OBLIGATION TO MITIGATE DAMAGES; NO EFFECT ON OTHER CONTRACTUAL RIGHTS. a. Carraway will not be required to mitigate damages or the amount of any payment provided for under this Agreement by seeking other agreements for consultant services or otherwise, nor will the amount of any payment provided for under this Agreement be reduced by any compensation earned by Carraway as the result of providing other consultant services to another party after the termination of the Consultant Services, or otherwise. b. The provisions of this Agreement, and any payment provided for hereunder, will not reduce any amounts otherwise payable, or in any way diminish Carraway's existing rights, or rights which would accrue solely as a result of the passage of time, under any benefit or incentive plan or arrangement, plan or arrangement to receive securities of the Company, consultant agreement or other contract, plan or arrangement of the Company. 12.

Any failure of the Company to obtain such agreement prior to the effectiveness of any such succession or assignment will be a material breach of this Agreement and will entitle Carraway to terminate the Consultant Services as provided for in Section 6 hereof. As used in this Agreement, the "COMPANY" will mean the Company as hereinbefore defined and any successor or assign to its business and/or assets as aforesaid which executes and delivers the agreement provided for in this Section 11 or which otherwise becomes bound by all the terms and provisions of this Agreement by operation of law. b.

The Company will, to the maximum extent permitted by law, indemnify Carraway and its nominee against expenses (including reasonable attorney's fees, judgments, fines, settlements and other amounts actually and reasonably incurred) in connection with any proceedings arising by reason of the fact that the Carraway's nominee is or was an officer, consultant, representative, or agent of the Company and was performing his duties in accordance with this Agreement or was acting in accordance with the directions of the Manager; provided however, that the Company will have no obligation to indemnify the Carraway or its nominee for such expenses, judgments, fines, settlements or other amounts which are finally judicially determined to have resulted from illegal, bad faith or knowingly fraudulent conduct on the part of the Carraway or its nominee, or Carraway's knowing and intentional violation of third party rights. The Company will advance to the Carraway the expenses incurred in defending any such proceedings to the maximum extent provided by law; provided however, that the Carraway is not entitled to indemnification in accordance with the preceding sentence. The Company's obligations under this Section will not cease upon termination of this Agreement. 15. LEGAL FEES.

No waiver by a party hereto at any time of any breach by another party hereto of, or compliance with, any condition or provision of this Agreement to be performed by such other party will be deemed a waiver of similar or dissimilar provisions or conditions. c. If any provision of this Agreement will be held invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity or unenforceability will attach only to such provision and will not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable any other severable provision of this Agreement, and this <PAGE> CONSULTANT AGREEMENT PAGE 11 Agreement will be carried out as if any such invalid or unenforceable provision were not contained herein, unless the invalidity or unenforceability of such provision substantially impairs the benefits of the remaining portions of this Agreement. d. The section headings contained herein are for the purposes of convenience only and are not intended to define or limit the contents of said sections. e. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, all of which taken together will be deemed one original. f.
