<PAGE>   3
            4. TITLE; FILING. Company warrants that, except as previously
disclosed in writing to Secured Party, it is the owner of the Collateral free
and clear of all liens, claims, and encumbrances of whatever kind or nature.
Company covenants that so long as any portion of the Obligation remains unpaid,
Company will not execute or file a financing statement or security agreement
covering the Collateral to anyone other than Secured Party, except in the
ordinary course of business or as otherwise allowed. Company agrees to sign and
deliver one or more financing statements or supplements thereto or other
instruments as Secured Party may from time to time require to comply with the
Uniform Commercial Code or other applicable law to preserve, protect and enforce
the security interest of Secured Party and to pay all costs of filing such
statements or instruments. In addition, Company shall promptly file a financing
statement to perfect Secured Party's interest in the Collateral.

or damage to it; at all times warrant and defend Company's ownership and
possession of the Collateral keep the Collateral free from all liens, claims,
encumbrances and security interests; pay when due all taxes, license fees, and
other charges upon the Collateral or upon Company's business, property or the
income therefrom; and not misuse, conceal or in any way use or dispose of the
Collateral unlawfully or contrary to the provisions of this Security Agreement
or of any insurance coverage. Loss of, damage to, or uncollectability of the
Collateral or any part thereof will not release Company from any of its
obligations hereunder.

            6. DEFAULT. A default hereunder will occur if any of the following
events occur: (1) Company fails to pay any portion of the Obligation when due;
(2) Company fails to perform any undertaking or materially breaches any warranty
or covenant in this Security Agreement or the Note; (3) any statement,
representation or warranty of Company under this Security Agreement or the Note
is untrue in any material respect when made; (4) Company becomes insolvent or
unable to pay debts as they mature or makes an assignment for the benefit of
creditors or any proceeding is instituted by or against it alleging that it is
insolvent or unable to pay its debts as they mature; (5) dissolution of Company;
(6) an attachment, garnishment, execution or other process is issued or a lien
filed against any property of Company, which is not removed within a reasonable
period of time; and (7) Company transfers an interest in any of the Collateral
contrary to the provisions of this Security Agreement without the prior written
consent of Secured Party other than in the ordinary course of business. Waiver
of any default will not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent default.

            7. REMEDIES. Upon the occurrence of any default hereunder at any
time thereafter, all of the Obligation will, at the election of Secured Party
and without notice of such election, or demand for payment, become immediately
due and payable and Secured Party will have the remedies of a secured party
under the Utah Uniform Commercial Code or other applicable law.

            8. GENERAL. The wavier by Secured Party of any breach of any
provision of this Security Agreement or warranty or representation herein set
forth will not be construed as a


                                       3
<PAGE>   4
waiver of any subsequent breach. The failure to exercise any right hereunder by
Secured Party will not operate as a waiver of such night. All rights and
remedies herein provided are cumulative. Company may not assign its nights or
delegate its duties hereunder without Secured Party's written consent. This
Security Agreement may not be altered or amended except by a writing signed by
all the parties hereto. This Security Agreement will be governed by and
construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah. Any
provision hereof found to be invalid will not invalidate the remainder. All
words used herein will be construed to be of such gender and number as the
circumstances require. This Security Agreement binds Company, its successors and
assigns, and inures to the benefit of Secured Party, its successors and assigns.

            IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Security
Agreement as of the date first written above.
