MAGGIO and PAMELA S. FOX, husband and wife, MARK C. MAGGIO and JOHN F. MAGGIO (collectively, "Shareholders"); BOULDER POTATO COMPANY, INC., a Colorado corporation ("Seller" or the "Company"); and POORE BROTHERS, INC., a Delaware corporation ("Purchaser") and/or its permitted nominee or assignee. RECITALS This Agreement contemplates a transaction in which Purchaser will purchase from the Company substantially all of the Assets (and, contemporaneously, accept responsibility for certain liabilities of the Company) of the Company in return for certain cash and Stock (as herein defined) of Purchaser. Shareholders are the holders of all of the outstanding shares of capital stock of the Company. Capitalized terms used without definition herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in SECTION 12.21 of this Agreement and Schedule 1 attached. NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual promises herein made, and in consideration of the representations, warranties and covenants herein contained, the parties agree as follows: <PAGE> ARTICLE 1: PURCHASE AND SALE PRICE 1.1 PURCHASE AND SALE OF THE ASSETS. At the Closing (defined herein) and in the manner herein provided, Seller shall sell and deliver all of the assets of the Company (collectively, the "Assets") to Purchaser, free and clear of any and all liens and/or encumbrances except as set forth herein, and Purchaser shall purchase the Assets from Seller on the terms and conditions set forth herein. 1.2 PURCHASE PRICE. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and in reliance on the representations and warranties of Seller and Shareholders herein contained, and in consideration of the sale, conveyance, transfer and delivery of the Assets provided for in this Agreement, Purchaser agrees to pay to Seller at the Closing an aggregate purchase price (the "Purchase Price"), set forth below and payable as follows: (a) a cash payment, at Closing, of $300,000.00 ("Initial Cash"); (b) the issuance to Seller, at Closing, of a Secured Promissory Note and Security Agreement in the form attached hereto as EXHIBIT 1.2 (the "Note" and the "Security Agreement", respectively) under which Purchaser will be the Maker (or if Purchaser assigns its interests hereunder in accordance with SECTION 12.19 hereof, Purchaser will guarantee same pursuant to a form of guaranty reasonably satisfactory to the parties). The Note will be in the principal amount of $830,000.00, and be finally due June 15, 2002. The Note shall bear fixed interest at the rate of six and four tenths percent (6.4%) per annum, and shall be amortized over twenty-four (24) equal (except for the first payment) monthly payments of principal and interest. Interest and principal payments will begin on July 15, 2000, and the first payment shall be adjusted by adding to it accrued but unpaid interest from the Closing Date through the 15th day of June, 2000, to appropriately establish and maintain the aforesaid amortization schedule. Security for the Note shall consist of a first lien encumbering the Assets listed on EXHIBIT 1.2(B) attached. (c) the issuance of $1,250,000.00 in Fair Market Value (computed as of the Closing Date) of Purchaser's (or Poore Brothers, Inc., if Purchaser exercises its assignment rights hereunder pursuant to SECTION 12.19 below) common stock (the "Closing Stock") pursuant to documents and certificates required by Purchaser or its counsel in connection therewith. The Closing Stock will enjoy certain "piggyback" registration rights exercisable in conjunction with any certain registration statement(s) which may be initiated by Purchaser post-Closing. Such registration rights shall be exercisable beginning one (1) year after the Closing. The form of Registration Rights Agreement (herein so called) related to the Closing Stock is attached hereto as EXHIBIT 1.2(C). The certificates representing said Closing Stock shall be delivered to Seller on the Closing Date or as soon thereafter as is reasonably practical, given the requirements of Purchaser's transfer agent and the like. Seller acknowledges that the Closing Stock will be unregistered (so-called "restricted" or "144") stock and that the same will not be tradable or transferable except in accordance with applicable Federal and State securities laws in effect from time to time, or pursuant to an effective registration statement. The Closing Stock (and all other stock issued hereunder) will be legended, and will be issued in accordance with the procedure, set forth in SECTION 12.8; and (d) the issuance of unregistered Shares of Purchaser's (or of Poore Brothers, Inc. if Purchaser exercises its assignment rights hereunder pursuant to SECTION 12.19 below) common stock (the "Additional Stock") as of June 30, 2001, June 30, 2002 and June 30, 2003 (each an "Anniversary Date"). The one year periods through such Dates (with the first Year being computed from July 1, 2000) are referred to herein as "Years". The Additional Stock shall have a Fair Market Value, as of each such Anniversary Date, equal to the Additional Issuance Amount (defined immediately below) based on the formula set forth below: 2 <PAGE> The Additional Issuance Amount with respect to each of the first, second and third Anniversary Dates will be equal to forty percent (40%) of the increase in Net Sales for the relevant Year then ended over the highest level of Net Sales obtained in any prior Year or, as to the first Year, the immediately preceding twelve month period (herein, "Initial Year"). For each such Year, the Additional Issuance Amount shall be ascertained as of each respective Anniversary Date. No Additional Stock shall be issued for any Year during which the Net Sales are less than the Net Sales for any previous Year or the Initial Year. Seller and Shareholders understand and agree that Purchaser is under no obligation to endeavor to increase Net Sales for the purpose of increasing the amount of Additional Stock, except in the ordinary course of Purchaser's future business as Purchaser may conduct the same from time to time in Purchaser's sole discretion. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Seller and Shareholders understand and agree that Purchaser is not obligated to expend any amounts greater than Seven and One-Half percent (7 1/2%) of Net Sales during any Year for advertising, marketing and similar purposes in order to endeavor to create Net Sales. Purchaser agrees to keep reasonable books, accounting records, etc. dealing with the computation of Net Sales for a period of three (3) years after the Closing Date (after which date the computations of Purchaser dealing with Net Sales shall be binding and final), which items shall be open for reasonable inspection upon reasonable notice during all business hours to Seller and/or the Shareholders; provided, that those parties shall keep such items confidential in accordance with applicable securities laws and rules. The Additional Stock shall be a subject of the Registration Rights Agreement. If any event or condition beyond the reasonable contemplation and/or control of the parties ("Force Majeure Event") occurs during any Yearly period and such Force Majeure Event has a material and adverse effect on Net Sales, the length of that Yearly period shall be increased by the time during which such Force Majeure Event occurs, but in no event greater than sixty (60) days. However, Net Sales made during the time period during which such Force Majeure Event is pending shall not be utilized in computing Net Sales for the Year in question. The relevant Anniversary Date and all subsequent Anniversary Dates shall be adjusted accordingly. The parties will use all reasonable commercial efforts to remedy and deal with any Force Majeure Event and its effect on the operations of Purchaser. A commercially reasonable time shall be afforded the parties after each Anniversary Date to make the computations set forth above and cause the issuance, if so required, of the Additional Stock. The number of Additional Shares shall not exceed, in the aggregate, a number of Additional Shares as Purchaser may reasonably determine in order to comply with applicable NASDAQ Rules to avoid necessity of Poore Brothers shareholder approval of any issuance of Additional Stock; provided that Poore Brothers shall pay to Company, in cash, the Fair Market Value of any Additional Shares which would have been issued to the Company and which Purchaser determines not to issue in accordance with the foregoing. 3 <PAGE> (e) Any reductions in the Net Assets of Seller from the date of the Closing Balance Sheet until Closing shall be deducted from the amount of the Closing Stock, it being the intention hereof that Seller guarantees that Adjusted Asset Value at Closing shall be equal to or greater than zero. 1.3 NO ASSUMPTION OF CERTAIN NON-BALANCE SHEET LIABILITIES; EXISTING LOAN. Buyer is not the successor to Seller in or to any of the Assets and does not assume any liabilities of Seller or Shareholders with regard to the Assets, except for the Existing Loan (as defined immediately below), any other liabilities of Seller reflected on the Closing Balance Sheet (as herein defined) and which are approved by Purchaser in accordance with the terms hereof and other liabilities which are listed on EXHIBIT 2.8 hereto (collectively, the "Assumed Liabilities"). Seller and Shareholders will jointly and severely indemnify, pay, protect, and hold harmless Buyer from, of and against any other liabilities attaching to the Assets (other than the Assumed Liabilities). The Company is subject to certain outstanding obligations to certain of its Shareholders (the "Existing Loan"). The Existing Loan is evidenced by the Company's Promissory Note, in the form of EXHIBIT 1.3 hereto. Seller shall deliver to Purchaser, in the form reasonably satisfactory to Purchaser and at Closing, an Estoppel Certificate or other similar evidence of the outstanding balance of the Existing Loan at Closing. Purchaser shall assume and agree to pay the obligations of the Company under the Existing Loan in accordance with the terms thereof and hereof. 1.4 ALLOCATIONS OF THE PURCHASE PRICE. The Purchase Price shall be paid and allocated as provided in the allocation set forth on EXHIBIT 1.4 hereto. 1.5 DEFINITION OF ASSETS. When used herein, the term "Assets" shall mean and refer to all tangible or intangible Assets owned by the Company or used in the conduct of the Business (as herein defined), whether now owned or acquired by the Company prior to the Closing Date, including, without limitation, the following: (a) All raw materials, work in process and finished goods produced or used in the Company's business of the design, conceptualization, manufacture and distribution of potato chips and other salted snack foods (collectively, the "Business"), wherever located ("Inventory"); (b) All equipment, tools, machinery, supplies, materials and other tangible personal property used in any manner in connection with the Business, wherever located (collectively, "Personal Property"), including, without limitation, the Personal Property described in EXHIBIT 1.5 attached to this Agreement; (c) Any and all rights in any manner related to the ownership or use of the Assets or to the ownership, operation or conduct of the Business, rights in or claims under leases, permits, licenses, purchase and sales orders, covenants not to compete, stock, stock rights, and all other contracts of any nature whatsoever ("Contractual Rights"), including, without limitation, the Contract Rights described in EXHIBIT 2.10 attached to this Agreement, and include receivables and cash as of the Closing Date; and (d) All of the Intellectual Property Rights (as herein defined) in any manner related to the ownership, possession or use of the Assets or to the ownership, operation or conduct of the Business, including, without limitation, the Intellectual Property Rights described in EXHIBIT 2.19 attached to this Agreement. 4 <PAGE> Notwithstanding the foregoing, the term "Assets" shall not refer to, and the Assets shall not include, that certain legal action described on EXHIBIT 2.13 against the Hartford Insurance Company, and wherein the Company is Plaintiff, which may be retained by the Company Post-Closing; provided that the Company shall indemnify and hold harmless Purchaser from any liability which may arise out of said action. 1.6 [RESERVED] 1.7 [RESERVED] 1.8 PAYMENT OF TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES.

The Company owns or leases, directly or indirectly, all of the Assets (including but not limited to tangible or intangible property rights licensed by the Company) and properties, and is a party to all licenses and other agreements, presently used or necessary to carry on the Business or operations of the Company as presently conducted.

The Company has good and marketable title to all the Personal Property and Assets, tangible or intangible, shown on the Balance Sheet except to the extent sold or disposed of in transactions entered into in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practices since the Financial Statement Date. The Company's Personal Property in the aggregate is in good condition and working order, and each individual item of Personal Property which would cost in excess of $500.00 to replace is in good condition and working order. None of such Assets are subject to any: (i) contracts of sale or lease, except contracts for the sale of inventory in the ordinary and regular course of business; or (ii) security interests, encumbrances, liens or charges of any kind or character, except as set forth in EXHIBIT 2.12. Except as set 8 <PAGE> forth in EXHIBIT 2.12, there are no Lease Restrictions with respect to the Personal Property leased by the Company. (c) INVENTORIES.

However, approval of the Closing Balance 19 <PAGE> Sheet by Purchaser shall be deemed a waiver by Purchaser of any adverse changes since the Financial Statement Date which are fully reflected in the Closing Balance Sheet, but the Purchase Price shall nonetheless be adjusted in accordance with the terms of SECTION 1.3(E) above if the Adjusted Asset Value is less than zero. 7.5 NO PROCEEDING OR LITIGATION.

Purchaser shall have approved the Closing Balance Sheet in accordance with the terms of SECTION 2.7 above. 7.12 FAILURE OF CONDITIONS. Seller agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to satisfy the conditions set forth in this Article VII to the extent the same are applicable to Seller. If Seller should be unable to satisfy any such condition or conditions set forth in this Article VII, Seller shall notify Purchaser, and Purchaser, by written notice to Seller to be given prior to the Closing, shall either: (i) waive such condition or conditions and proceed to close; or (ii) cancel this Agreement. If Purchaser elects to cancel this Agreement pursuant to the foregoing provisions, and the failure of condition is not due to Seller's breach hereunder, the provisions of the Production Agreement (as herein defined) shall continue to be effective, Purchaser shall have returned to it all other documents Purchaser either deposited with, or delivered to, Seller and thereupon this Agreement shall be deemed null and void and neither party shall have any further obligation or liability under this Agreement, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement. If Purchaser's cancellation is due to Seller's breach hereunder, and the balance of the provisions of the immediately preceding sentence shall also be in full force and effect without Purchaser, however, waiving any rights it may have on account of Seller's breach hereunder pursuant to SECTION 9.4 below. 20 <PAGE> ARTICLE 8: CONDITIONS TO THE OBLIGATIONS OF SELLER Each and every obligation of Seller under this Agreement shall be subject to the satisfaction on or before the Closing Date, of each of the following conditions unless waived in writing by Seller: 8.1 REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES; PERFORMANCE. The representations and warranties made by Purchaser herein shall be true and correct on the date of this Agreement and on the Closing Date with the same effect as though made on such date; Purchaser shall have performed and complied with all agreements, covenants and conditions required by this Agreement to be performed and complied with by it prior to the Closing Date; and Purchaser shall have delivered to Seller a certificate of a responsible officer, dated the Closing Date, certifying to the fulfillment of the conditions set forth herein, in the form designated as EXHIBIT 8.1 and the other conditions contained in this Article VIII. 8.2 NO PROCEEDING OR LITIGATION.

Seller shall have received an opinion of counsel to Purchaser dated the Closing Date to the following effect: (a) Purchaser is a Delaware corporation, duly organized, validly existing, in good standing and has the requisite corporate power and corporate authority to consummate the transactions contemplated by, and to perform its obligations under, this Agreement. The execution and delivery of this Agreement, the consummation of the transactions contemplated by, and the performance of the obligations under, this Agreement have been duly authorized by requisite corporate action on the part of Purchaser. (b) This Agreement constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of Purchaser, enforceable against Purchaser in accordance with its terms. The Employment Agreements, the Note, the Security Agreement (together with associated Financing Statements), the Registration Rights Agreement, the Closing Stock and the assumption by Purchaser of the Existing Loan constitute legal, valid and binding obligations of Purchaser, enforceable against Purchaser in accordance with their respective terms; provided that, as to the Closing Stock, counsel need not render any securities law opinion. (c) Neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement by Purchaser nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated by, nor the performance of Purchaser's obligations under, this Agreement will: (a) violate any provisions of the Articles or Bylaws of Purchaser; (b) violate any statute, code, ordinance, rule or regulation of the State of Arizona applicable to Purchaser; (c) to said counsel's knowledge, violate any judgment, order, writ, decree, injunction or award of any court, arbitrator, mediator, government or governmental agency or instrumentality to which Purchaser is a party or by which Purchaser is bound; and (d) to said counsel's knowledge, violate, breach, conflict with, constitute a default under, result in the termination of or accelerate the performance required by, any of the terms, conditions or provisions of any note, bond, mortgage, indenture, deed of trust, license, lease, agreement or other instrument or obligation to which Purchaser is a party or by which Purchaser is bound. (d) To said counsel's knowledge, there is no pending or threatened litigation or other legal proceeding against Purchaser or challenging the validity or propriety of or seeking to enjoin or to set aside the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, except as set forth in Purchaser's public filings, reports and/or announcements and in so-called "audit letters" from such 21 <PAGE> counsel to auditors of Purchaser, the content of which letters need not be disclosed to Seller. (e) No consent, approval, authorization or other action by, or filing with, any federal, state or local governmental agency or instrumentality is required in connection with the execution and delivery by Purchaser of this Agreement, the consummation by Purchaser of the transactions contemplated by, or the performance of Purchaser's obligations under, this Agreement; provided, however, that counsel need not opine to securities issues or to issues of Colorado law, but only to Arizona law and Delaware corporate law. 8.4 PAYMENT.

Purchaser agrees to use reasonable commercial efforts to satisfy the conditions set forth in this Article 8 applicable to Purchaser. If Purchaser should be unable to satisfy any such condition or conditions set forth in this Article 8, Purchaser shall notify Seller, and Seller, by written notice to Purchaser to be given prior to the Closing, shall either: (i) waive such condition or conditions and proceed to close; or (ii) cancel this Agreement. If Seller elects to cancel this Agreement pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Article 8, the provisions of the Production Agreement shall continue to be effective, and thereupon this Agreement shall be deemed null and void and neither party shall have any further obligation or liability under this Agreement, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement. ARTICLE 9: CLOSING 9.1 CLOSING. Unless this Agreement shall have been terminated or abandoned pursuant to the provisions of Article X hereof, a closing (the "Closing") shall be held on June 8, 2000, or on such other date (the "Closing Date") mutually agreed upon at such place or places as Purchaser shall designate. 9.2 DELIVERIES AT CLOSING. (a) At the Closing Seller shall transfer and assign to Purchaser all of the Assets by delivering a Bill of Sale, an Assignment of Leases (or an appropriate instrument of assignment/sublease as Purchaser shall determine), together with the associated consent of the landlord, an Assignment of Intangible Property Rights, filable and/or recordable assignments of all of Seller's Intellectual Property Rights, if any, an Assumption Agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the parties, and also executed by Poore Brothers, dealing with the Existing Loan (together with the Promissory Note evidencing same) and the Assumed Liabilities, and such other transfer documentation as may be requested by Purchaser or its counsel, all in form and substance satisfactory to Purchaser and its counsel (collectively, "Assignment Documents"), and the cash consideration, the note(s), and the other agreements, certifications and other documents required to be executed and delivered hereunder at the Closing shall be duly and validly executed and delivered. 22 <PAGE> (b) From time to time after the Closing at Purchaser's request and without further consideration from Purchaser, Seller shall execute and deliver such other instruments of conveyance and transfer and take such other action as Purchaser reasonably may require to convey, transfer to and vest in Purchaser and to put Purchaser in possession of the Assets to be sold, conveyed, transferred and delivered hereunder. Seller shall also, contemporaneous with Closing, change its name to a name reasonably approved by Purchaser and consent to Purchaser (and/or Purchaser's designee) utilizing Seller's present corporate name and/or any reasonable variants thereof, executing such documents of assignment of such name and variants as may be requested by Purchaser, and shall also cause Boulder Foods to deliver resignations of its Officers and Directors as Purchaser may determine. 9.3 LEGAL ACTIONS. If, prior to the Closing Date, any action or proceeding shall have been instituted by any third party before any court or governmental agency to restrain or prohibit this Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated herein, the Closing shall be adjourned at the option of any party hereto for a period of up to 120 days. If, at the end of such 120 day period, the action or proceeding shall not have been favorably resolved, any party hereto may, by written notice thereof to the other party or parties, terminate its obligation hereunder. 9.4 REMEDIES PRIOR TO OR ON CLOSING. (a) REMEDIES OF PURCHASER PRIOR TO OR ON CLOSING. In the event of any breach or default of any warranty, covenant, agreement, condition or other obligation of Seller or any Shareholder under this Agreement, Purchaser may at its option, terminate this Agreement by delivering written notice of termination to Seller on or before the Closing Date. The notice shall specify with particularity the breach or default on which the notice is based. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties acknowledge that the Assets are unique and that, in the event of a breach or default by Seller or any Shareholder under this Agreement, it would be extremely impracticable to measure monetary damages and such damages would be an inadequate remedy for Purchaser. Therefore, in the event of any such breach or default, Purchaser may, at its option, sue for specific performance. Purchaser's other option in the event of breach by Seller or any Shareholder under this Agreement, but only in the event that specific performance is unavailable for any reason, shall be to bring an action against Seller and the affected Shareholder(s), if any, to recover Purchaser's reasonable attorneys' fees, together with all other reasonable expenses incurred, expended and/or paid by Purchaser in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including, without limitation, financing costs, investigation costs, travel costs, reimbursement for experts' fees and other fees. (b) REMEDIES OF SELLER PRIOR TO OR ON CLOSING. In the event of any breach or default of any warranty, covenant, agreement, condition or other obligation of Purchaser under this Agreement, Seller's sole and exclusive remedy shall be to terminate this Agreement by delivering written notice of termination to Purchaser on or before the Closing Date. The notice shall specify with particularity the breach or default on which the notice is based. (c) TERMINATION. In the event of termination of this Agreement by either Purchaser or Seller as provided in this SECTION 9.4, this Agreement shall become null and void, other than SECTION 9.4(A) above, which shall remain in full force and effect. Upon termination, Purchaser shall deliver to Seller and Seller shall deliver to Purchaser any and all documentation provided by each party to the other pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. 23 <PAGE> ARTICLE 10: TERMINATION AND ABANDONMENT 10.1 METHODS OF TERMINATION. This Agreement may be terminated and the transactions herein contemplated may be abandoned at any time prior to Closing (notwithstanding approval by the Board of Directors of Purchaser): (a) by mutual consent of Purchaser and Seller; or (b) by either Purchaser or Seller, if (i) such party is not in breach hereunder and the other party is in breach hereunder and (ii) this Agreement is not consummated on or before the Closing Date, including extensions. 10.2 PROCEDURE UPON TERMINATION. In the event of termination and abandonment pursuant to SECTION 10.1 hereof, this Agreement shall terminate and shall be abandoned, without further action by any of the parties hereto. If this Agreement is terminated as provided herein: (a) each party will upon request redeliver all documents and other materials of any other party relating to the transactions contemplated hereby, whether so obtained before or after the execution hereof, to the party furnishing the same; (b) no party hereto shall have any liability or further obligation to any other party to this Agreement; and (c) each party shall bear its own expenses. ARTICLE 11: INDEMNIFICATION 11.1 INDEMNIFICATION BY SELLER AND SHAREHOLDERS. Seller and Shareholders, severally and jointly, agree to indemnify Purchaser and each of its shareholders, officers and directors against any loss, damage or expense (including, but not limited to reasonable attorneys' fees) ("Damages"), incurred or sustained by Purchaser or any of its shareholders, officers or directors as a result of: (a) any breach of any provision, covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement by Seller or any Shareholder other than described in (b) or (c) below; (b) any inaccuracy in any of the representations or warranties made by Seller or any Shareholder in Article II of this Agreement to the extent any such inaccuracy relates and is attributable to events, actions, occurrences, conditions or omissions existing prior to the Closing Date; or (c) any inaccuracy or misrepresentation in any certificate or other document or instrument delivered by Seller or any Shareholder in accordance with any provision of this Agreement. The right to indemnification and the liability of the Company and Shareholders as described in this Article XI shall, except as specifically provided below, be limited to the Escrowed Stock (as defined in the Escrow Agreement) and shall be the exclusive remedy of Purchaser with respect to Damage claims. The obligations of Seller and the Shareholders as set forth in SECTIONS 11.1(B) and (C) shall be subject to and limited by the following: (a) Purchaser shall give written notice to Seller and the Shareholders stating specifically the basis for the claim for Damages, the amount thereof and shall tender defense thereof to Seller and the Shareholders as provided in SECTION 11.2; (b) All claims for Damages shall be payable from the Poore Brothers Securities (as defined in the Escrow Agreement) in initial Fair Market Value of $300,000.00. However, except for damages arising out of intentional or fraudulent: (1) actions; (2) misrepresentations; or (3) breaches, neither Seller 24 <PAGE> or any Shareholder shall have personal liability to pay any of the indemnification Damages claimed hereunder and when the Escrowed Stock is fully released from Escrow and the Note is paid in full, Purchaser shall have no other claims for indemnification Damages against Seller or any Shareholder except for intentional or fraudulent: (1) actions; (2) misrepresentations; or (3) breaches. No claim may be made for Damages upon the Poore Brothers Securities unless and until, in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement, all prior claims made thereunder total at least $20,000.00; (c) No claim for Damages by Purchaser shall be made if Purchaser has been compensated without cost to Purchaser; and (d) No claim for Damages shall be made by Purchaser if any loss is actually recovered by the Purchaser from insurers, or from any third party. 11.2 TENDER OF DEFENSE FOR DAMAGES. Promptly upon receipt by Purchaser of a notice of a claim by a third party which may give rise to a claim for Damages, Purchaser shall give written notice thereof to Seller and the Shareholders. No failure or delay of Purchaser in the performance of the foregoing shall relieve, reduce or otherwise affect Seller's and the Shareholders' obligations and liability to indemnify Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement, except to the extent that such failure or delay shall have adversely affected Seller's and the Shareholders' ability to defend against such claim for Damages. If Seller or the Shareholders give to Purchaser an agreement in writing, in a form reasonably satisfactory to Purchaser's counsel, to defend such claim for Damages, Seller and the Shareholders may, at their sole expense, undertake the defense against such claim and may contest or settle such claim on such terms, at such time and in such manner as Seller and the Shareholders, in their sole discretion, shall elect and Purchaser shall execute such documents and take such steps as may be reasonably necessary in the opinion of counsel for Seller and the Shareholders to enable Seller and the Shareholders to conduct the defense of such claim for Damages. If Seller of the Shareholders fail or refuse to defend any claim for Damages, Seller and the Shareholders may nevertheless, at their own expense, participate in the defense of such claim by Purchaser and in any and all settlement negotiations relating thereto. In any and all events, Seller and the Shareholders shall have such access to the records and files of Purchaser relating to any claim for Damages as may be reasonably necessary to effectively defend or participate in the defense thereof. 11.3 [RESERVED] ARTICLE 12: MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS 12.1 AMENDMENT AND MODIFICATION. Subject to applicable law, this Agreement may be amended, modified and supplemented only by written agreement of Seller and Purchaser. 12.2 WAIVER OF COMPLIANCE; CONSENTS. Any failure of Seller or the Shareholders on the one hand, or Purchaser, on the other hand, to comply with any obligation, covenant, agreement or condition herein may be waived in writing by Purchaser, or Seller and the Shareholders, respectively, but such waiver or failure to insist upon strict compliance with such obligation, covenant, agreement or condition shall not operate as a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to, any subsequent or other failure. Whenever this Agreement requires or permits consent by or on behalf of any party hereto, such consent shall be given in writing in a manner consistent with the requirements for a waiver of compliance as set forth in this Section 12.2. 25 <PAGE> 12.3 EXPENSES. Each party will pay its own legal, accounting and other expenses incurred by such party or on its behalf in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated herein, but the Company's and Shareholders' expenses shall not exceed $25,000.00. 12.4 INVESTIGATIONS; SURVIVAL OF WARRANTIES. The respective representations and warranties of Seller, the Shareholders and Purchaser contained herein or in any certificates or other documents delivered prior to or at the Closing are true, accurate and correct and shall not be deemed waived or otherwise affected by any investigation made by any party hereto or by the occurrence of the Closing. Each and every such representation and warranty shall survive for a period of two (2) years from the Closing Date; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, all claims for Damages based on intentional or fraudulent actions, misrepresentations or breaches shall never expire. 12.5 NOTICES.

This Agreement constitutes the product of the negotiation of the parties hereto and the enforcement hereof shall be interpreted in a neutral manner, and not more strongly for or against any party based upon the source of the drafting hereof. 12.8 SECURITIES ISSUES. Seller hereby acknowledges that Purchaser will be relying upon exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 Act"), and the Colorado Securities Act and The Illinois Securities Law of 1953 (collectively, the "Local Acts") in connection with the issuance of the Closing Stock and/or the Additional Stock (collectively, the "Stock") to Seller. In connection with establishing the applicability of the above-mentioned exemptions, Seller represents and warrants to, and agrees with, Purchaser as follows: (a) The Stock is being acquired by Seller for his, her or its account for purposes of investment and not "with a view to" the "distribution" thereof, as those terms are used in the 1933 Act and the rules and regulations thereunder. (b) Seller understands and acknowledges that the Stock constitutes "restricted securities" under federal and state securities laws insofar as the Stock has not been registered under the 1933 Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, that the Stock may not be resold or transferred without compliance with the registration or qualification provisions of the 1933 Act or applicable federal and state securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction or an opinion of counsel that an exemption from such registration and qualification requirements is available. Seller is familiar with Rule 144 promulgated under the 1933 Act, as presently in effect, and the resale limitations imposed thereby and by the 1933 Act. (c) Seller understands that any certificate or certificates representing the Stock that are issued by Purchaser will bear the following legend or a legend similar thereto: 27 <PAGE> THE STOCK REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAS NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR UNDER ANY STATE SECURITIES LAWS. SUCH STOCK HAS BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT PURPOSES ONLY AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO THE DISTRIBUTION THEREOF. SUCH STOCK MAY NOT BE SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE, TRANSFERRED OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER SAID ACT AND COMPLIANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO THE CORPORATION THAT SUCH REGISTRATION AND/OR COMPLIANCE IS NOT REQUIRED. (d) Seller has the requisite knowledge and experience in financial and business matters, including investments of this type, to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Stock and of making an informed investment decision with respect thereto. Seller is able to (i) bear the economic risk of his, her or its investment in the Stock, (ii) hold the Stock for an indefinite period of time, and (iii) afford a complete loss of his, her or its investment. (e) Seller has obtained sufficient information to evaluate the merits and risks of his, her or its acquisition of the Stock and to make an informed investment decision. Seller has reviewed the recent reports filed by Purchaser with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, as well as recent press releases issued by Purchaser, and has reviewed such additional documentation and information and has conducted such research regarding Purchaser as Seller has deemed prudent and necessary in connection with the issuance of the Stock to Seller. Based upon such review and research, Seller believes that he, she or it is fully aware of the current condition (financial and otherwise) and prospects of Purchaser. Seller acknowledges receipt from Purchaser of copies of certain periodic and other reports filed by Purchaser with the Securities and Exchange Commission since January 1, 2000, including, without limitation, Purchaser's Annual Report on Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ended December 31, 1999, and Purchaser's Quarterly Report on Form 10-QSB for the three-month period ended March 31, 2000. (f) All documents, records and other information relating to the Purchaser that have been requested by the undersigned and that are considered by the undersigned to be material in making a decision to enter into the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (including, without limitation, the receipt by Seller of the Stock as a portion of the consideration payable by Purchaser pursuant hereto) have been delivered or made available to him, her or it, and Seller's investment decision is based upon his, her or its own investigation and analysis and not the representations or inducements of Purchaser or any party or parties acting on its behalf. (g) Seller understands that Purchaser will rely on the representations contained in this Section 12.8 in connection with the issuance of the Stock to the Seller. 28 <PAGE> Purchaser represents and warrants to, and agrees with, Seller and the Shareholders as follows: (a) None of the Reports filed by Purchaser with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") contains any misstatement of material fact and none of said Reports omits any information necessary to make the included information not materially misleading; and (b) Purchaser agrees to make available to Seller and the Shareholders, at all times hereafter and when required by applicable SEC rules, adequate current public information with respect to the Purchaser within the meaning of Rule 144 (c) of the 1933 Act. 12.9 NONDISCLOSURE.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, that certain Production Agreement (herein so called), between Purchaser and Seller, dated January 22, 1999, shall survive any termination of this Agreement and is specifically deemed not to be integrated herein.

No supplement, modification or amendment of this Agreement shall be binding and enforceable unless executed in writing by the parties. 12.12 EXHIBITS AND RECITALS.

Except as expressly provided in SECTION 12.19 below, nothing in this Agreement is intended to confer upon any person other than the parties, their respective heirs, representatives, successors and permitted assigns, any rights or remedies under or by reason of this Agreement, nor is anything in this Agreement intended to relieve or discharge the liability of any party, nor shall any provision of this Agreement give any entity any right of subrogation against or action over or against any party. Any third party lender to Purchaser in connection with the Closing or the financing of any portion of the Purchase Price ("Lender") shall be a third party beneficiary of all of the representations, warranties and agreements of Seller and Shareholders made herein, Seller and Shareholders acknowledging that, in order to supply part of the purchase money hereunder, Lender may be making a loan to Purchaser secured by, among other things, a collateral assignment of Purchaser's interest hereunder. Therefore, if Lender succeeds to Purchaser's position hereunder, Seller and Shareholders shall recognize Lender for all purposes hereunder and shall perform the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements herein contained and which survive the Closing to Lender in that instance. Seller and Shareholders shall, from time to time, execute such documents as may be reasonably requested by Lender or Purchaser in order to evidence such an item including, without limitation, estoppel certificates and recognition agreements. 12.16 SEVERABILITY. The invalidity or unenforceability of all or any part of any particular provision of this Agreement shall not affect the other provisions hereof and this Agreement shall be continued in all respects as if such invalid or unenforceable provision were omitted. 12.17 RISK OF LOSS. Seller shall bear all risk of loss with respect to the Company's Assets arising on or prior to the Closing Date. In the event that all or any part of the Company's Assets are damaged or destroyed by fire, windstorm, flood or any other casualty on or prior to the Closing Date (whether or not insured), Seller shall immediately notify Purchaser of such damage or destruction. In such event, Seller and Purchaser agree as follows: (a) If the amount of the casualty loss is less than Ten Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($10,000.00), the Purchase Price shall be reduced by the amount of the casualty loss, and Seller shall retain the right to receive proceeds of any insurance policies which cover any such loss. (b) If the amount of the casualty loss is Ten Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($10,000.00) or more, Purchaser shall have the option to: (a) terminate this Agreement by written notice to Seller, in which case the parties shall have no further obligations under this Agreement; or (b) continue to proceed with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. If the Purchaser elects to continue to proceed with the transactions contemplated under this Agreement: (1) all 30 <PAGE> insurance proceeds collectible by reason of such casualty loss shall be deemed to have been absolutely and irrevocably assigned to, and shall be payable directly to, Purchaser; (2) Seller shall deliver to Purchaser, on or before the Closing Date, a duly executed assignment of all insurance proceeds, in form and substance acceptance to Purchaser; (3) Purchaser shall have the right to conduct all settlement proceedings with respect to such insurance claims; and (4) Purchaser shall have the right and option to extend the Closing Date for a period of up to sixty (60) days from the date of such casualty loss. 12.18 FURTHER DOCUMENTATION. Each party will execute and deliver such further instruments and documents and do such further acts and things as may be required to carry out the intent and purpose of this Agreement. 12.19 NOMINATION AND ASSIGNMENT. Purchaser shall have the ability, without the need to obtain the consent of Seller or any Shareholder (as shall Purchaser's assignee or nominee), to nominate or assign all or any portion of Purchaser's rights under this Agreement to any person and/or entity which is an Affiliate of Purchaser for any consideration deemed acceptable to Purchaser in its reasonable discretion. In the event of such nomination and/or assignment, Purchaser shall not be released from its obligations to issue the Stock and its obligations to make payment under the Note (and its attendant security) and to assume certain obligations relating to the Existing Loan and the Company hereunder, and shall cause its nominee/assignee to pay the consideration and to otherwise consummate the Closing hereunder 12.20 [RESERVED]. 12.21 CERTAIN DEFINITIONS. Capitalized terms utilized in this Agreement shall have the meanings ascribed to them in definitional parentheticals located throughout this Agreement. In addition, and without limiting the foregoing, certain capitalized terms shall have the meanings ascribed to them in SCHEDULE 1 attached. 12.22 CROSS-DEFAULT CLAUSES. The Note, the Security Agreement and the Assumption Agreement relating to the Existing Loan and the Assumed Liabilities shall provide that a default in one obligation (after opportunity for notice and cure) constitutes a default as to all such agreements. 12.23 PAYMENTS BY WIRE. Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties hereto, the initial cash payment due at Closing and all payments under the Note shall be paid on or before the due date by wire transfer or delivery of other immediately available funds to an account reasonably designated by the Shareholders in writing not less than three (3) days prior to the Closing or the due date for a Note payment, as the case may be. 31 <PAGE> IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have entered into this Agreement as of the date first hereinabove set forth.
