               price), Transfer all (but not part only) of its Shares to any of
               its Affiliates, provided that -

        3.2.1. the transferor shall remain a party to this Agreement and
               hereby agrees to guarantee the performance by the transferee of
               its obligations pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement and
               to indemnify the other Shareholder from and against a breach by
               such transferee of any of its obligations under this Agreement;

        3.2.1. it shall be a condition precedent to any such Transfer (and any
               registration thereof) that the transferee agrees in writing with
               the other Shareholder to observe, perform and be bound by the
               terms and conditions of this Agreement as if references herein to
               the transferor were references to the transferee;

        3.2.2. if the transferee ceases to be an Affiliate of OTVH or SSI, as
               the case may be, then the transferor shall cause the transferee
               to Transfer to the transferor or another Affiliate of OTVH or
               SSI, as


                                      -5-
<PAGE>

               the case may be, all its Shares prior to the date of such

     3.3. Any attempted Transfer other than in accordance with this Agreement or
          the Investors' Rights Agreement shall be void ab initio, and the
          Company shall not give effect to any Transfer made in contravention of
          the provisions of this Section 3 or any other express provision of
          this Agreement or of the Investors' Rights Agreement and shall not
          reflect on its records any changes in record ownership of the Shares
          pursuant to any such attempted Transfer.

          Right of First Refusal

     3.4. Subject to the provisions of Section 3.8, if a Shareholder (the
          "Offeror") wishes to Transfer any or all of its Shares, it shall, by
          notice in writing (the "Offer") to the Company and to the other
          Shareholder (the "Offeree"), offer to sell to the Offeree such Shares
          ("Sale Shares") at the price and on the terms specified in the Offer.
          The Offer shall specify the material terms and conditions including,
          without limitation, the price at which the Offeror is prepared to sell
          the Sale Shares and shall remain open for acceptance by the Offeree
          for 15 days from the date of the Offer (the "Offer Period"). No
          Shareholder may offer to sell its Shares except on an "all cash"
          basis, provided that a Shareholder may offer to sell its Shares in
          exchange for immediately liquid, freely tradeable marketable
          securities which are listed on a national securities exchange.

     3.5. If the Offeree shall not have accepted an Offer in respect of all (but
          not less than all) of the Sale Shares during the Offer Period, the
          Offeror (a) if OTVH, shall be entitled to sell the Sale Shares to the
          Investors or others in accordance with the Investors' Rights
          Agreement, but at a price which shall not be less than that, and on
          terms and conditions which are not, taken as a whole, more favorable
          than those at which the Offeree was entitled to purchase the Sale
          Shares in terms of Section 3.4. If no such sale shall have been
          effected during the periods stipulated in the Investors' Rights
          Agreement, then the Offeror shall not be entitled to effect any
          Transfer of any or all of its Sale Shares thereafter unless the
          provisions of Section 3.4 shall again have been complied with in
          respect of such Shares (b) if SSI, shall be entitled, within 30 days
          after such non-acceptance, to sell the Sale Shares, but at a price
          which shall not be less than that, and on terms and conditions which
          are not, taken as a whole, more favorable than those at which the
          Offeree was entitled to purchase the Sale Shares in


                                      -6-
<PAGE>

          terms of Section 3.4. If SSI shall not have effected such sale during
          such 30-day period, then the Offeror shall not be entitled to effect
          any Transfer of any or all of its Shares thereafter unless the
          provisions of Section 3.4 shall again have been complied with in
          respect of such Shares.

     3.6. If the Offeree elects to purchase all of the Sale Shares as provided
          in Section 3.4, the Offeror shall be obliged to sell, and the Offeree
          shall be obliged to purchase, the Sale Shares on the terms set out in
          the Offer by the close of business on the twentieth day following the
          expiration of the fifteen (15) day period referred to in Section 3.4,
          at the registered office of the Company (or such other time, date and
          place as may be agreed by the Offeror and the Offeree).

     3.7. At the completion of the sale and purchase of the Sale Shares to the
          Offeree -

        3.7.1. the Offeree shall use its best efforts to ensure the immediate
               release of all guarantees, indemnities and similar covenants, if
               any, given by the Offeror in favor or for the benefit of the
               Company and specified in the Offer (and pending such release
               shall keep the Offeror fully and effectively indemnified from and
               against all claims arising under such guarantees, indemnities and
               similar covenants);

        3.7.2. against delivery in accordance with Section 3.7.3, the Offeree
               shall pay the purchase price to the Offeror by way of a wire
               transfer of immediately available funds;

        3.7.3. concurrent with payment of the purchase price in accordance
               with Section 3.7.2, the Offeror shall deliver to the Offeree
               share certificates (including executed share powers with respect
               thereto) and such other documents of title as the Offeree may
               reasonably require to show good title to the Sale Shares and to
               enable the Offeree to be registered as holder of the Sale Shares.

          Transfers

     3.8. Each Shareholder undertakes to exercise all voting rights to ensure
          that any Transfer of Shares made in accordance with this Agreement can
          be effected in accordance herewith and that in such an event the
          Shareholders shall adopt a resolution to enable such a Transfer to
          take effect and in such


                                      -7-
<PAGE>

          resolution the Shareholders shall waive any inconsistent or
          conflicting rights which they may have under the Company's Memorandum
          of Association or Articles of Association in relation to such
          Transfer.


 4.  GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION AND LIMITATION ON DAMAGES

     4.1. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in all respects in
          accordance with the laws (without regard to the laws of conflicts of
          law) of the State of California, except to the extent relating to
          matters of corporate governance, which shall be governed by and
          construed in all respects in accordance with the laws (without regard
          to the laws of conflicts of law) of the British Virgin Islands.

     4.2. If any dispute arises between the parties in connection with -

        4.2.1. the formation or existence of, the implementation of or the
               interpretation or application of, the provisions of the parties'
               respective rights and obligations in terms of or arising out of
               this Agreement or its breach or termination; or

        4.2.2. the validity, enforceability, rectification, termination or
               cancellation, whether in whole or in part, of this Agreement, or

        4.2.3. which relates in any way to any matter affecting the interests
               of the parties in terms of this Agreement, and the parties are
               unable to resolve their dispute, then any party shall be entitled
               to refer the dispute in the first instance, to the respective
               nominated senior officers of the Shareholders for resolution.

     4.3. If the matter in dispute shall not have been resolved within thirty
          (30) days of it having been so referred under Section 4.2, any
          Shareholder may refer the matter in dispute for determination by final
          arbitration in Los Angeles, California in accordance with the Rules of
          the London Court of International Arbitration ("LCIA") (which Rules
          are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this Section) by a
          neutral arbitrator which shall be selected by the Shareholders. If the
          Shareholders are unable to agree on a neutral arbitrator within
          fifteen (15) days after the expiration of the thirty day period
          referred to in the preceding sentence, then each Shareholder shall
          select an arbitrator (a "Party Arbitrator") within five (5) days after
          expiration of such fifteen (15) day period. An additional


                                      -8-
<PAGE>

          arbitrator, who shall be the chairman of the tribunal, shall be
          appointed by agreement between the Party Arbitrators within thirty
          (30) days after the date on which the Party Arbitrators were selected,
          failing which, such arbitrator shall be appointed by the relevant
          appointing authority under the Rules of the LCIA. The arbitrators
          shall establish the procedural rules applicable to the proceedings.
          Any arbitral award shall be final and binding upon the parties and
          this Agreement places no restriction on the jurisdiction in which such
          award shall be enforced.

     4.4. Section 4.3 shall not preclude any party from obtaining interim
          injunctive relief on an urgent basis from a court of competent
          jurisdiction, pending any decision of the arbitrators under Section
          4.3. In addition, the parties hereto acknowledge and agree that they
          have no adequate remedy at law for any breach or threatened breach of
          any covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement and that any
          party may, in addition to the other remedies that may be available to
          it, commence proceedings in equity for an injunction preliminarily or
          permanently enjoining any other party from breaching or threatening
          any such breach of any such covenant or agreement. With respect of any
          such proceeding in equity, it shall be presumed that the remedies at
          law or otherwise available to any party would be inadequate and that
          it would suffer irreparable harm as a result of the violation of any
          provision hereof by any other party.

     4.5. The provision of this Section -

        4.5.1. constitute an irrevocable consent by the parties to any
               proceedings in terms hereof and no party shall be entitled to
               withdraw therefrom or claim at any such proceedings that it is
               not bound by such provisions;

        4.5.2. are severable from the rest of this Agreement and shall remain
               in effect despite the termination of or invalidity for any reason
               of this Agreement.

     4.6. In connection with any injunctive relief sought under Section 4.4,
          each party to this Agreement, by its execution hereof, (i) hereby
          irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts
          of the State of California or the United States District Court located
          in the State of California, and (ii) hereby waives, to the extent not
          prohibited by applicable law, and agrees not to assert, by way of
          motion, as a defense or otherwise, in any such action, any claim that
          it is not subject personally to


                                      -9-
<PAGE>

          the jurisdiction of the above-named courts, that its property is
          exempt or immune from attachment or execution, that any such
          proceeding brought in one of the above-named courts is improper, or
          that this Agreement or the subject matter hereof may not be enforced
          in or by such court. Each party hereto hereby consents to service of
          process in any such proceeding in any manner permitted by Californian
          law, and agrees that service of process by registered or certified
          mail, return receipt requested, at its address specified pursuant to
          Section 9.2 hereof is reasonably calculated to give actual notice.

     4.7. No party shall be liable for any indirect, special, incidental or
          consequential loss or damage (including, without limitation, loss of
          profits or loss of use) suffered by any other party arising from or
          relating to a party's performance, non-performance, breach of or
          default under a covenant, warranty, representation, term or condition
          hereof. Each party waives and relinquishes claims for indirect,
          special, incidental or consequential damages.

     4.8. No party shall have the right to recover punitive damages from the
          other party, and each party hereby waives and relinquishes any and all
          punitive damage claims.

     4.9. The limitations on liability and damages referred to in Sections 4.7
          and 4.8 apply to all causes of action that may be asserted under this
          Agreement, whether in respect of breach of contract, breach of
          warranty, tort, product liability, negligence or otherwise.

 5.  DURATION AND TERMINATION

     Except as otherwise provided herein, this Agreement shall continue in full
     force and effect without time limit until both Shareholders agree in
     writing to terminate this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon a
     Transfer of all of the Shares then held by a Shareholder (and its
     Affiliates) and the termination or expiration of all rights to acquire
     shares of capital stock of the Company then held by a Shareholder (and its
     Affiliates), such Shareholder shall cease to be subject to the terms and
     conditions of this Agreement except for those provisions which expressly
     provide they shall apply to any party hereto regardless of the ownership or
     holding of any Shares by any party hereto or which expressly provide that
     they shall survive any Transfer in accordance herewith.

                                     -10-

 6.  WAIVERS

     6.1. No delay in exercising or failure to exercise any right or remedy
          under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any
          single or partial exercise of any right or remedy preclude either the
          further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy
          provided in this Agreement.

     6.2. In the event that any party shall expressly waive any breach, default
          or omission hereunder, without the prior written consent of the other
