Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Company shall not be required to honor a request for a Demand Registration if the Company has not received Demand Notices from the Required Investors. The Company shall not be required to register any Registrable Securities under this Section 2 unless the approximate aggregate offering price of the Registrable Securities included in such Demand Notices shall be at least US$25 million. <PAGE> (b) Subject to paragraph (a) above, as soon as practicable, but in any event within 20 days of the date on which the Company first receives a Demand Notice pursuant to Section 2(a) hereof, the Company shall file with the Commission a Registration Statement on the appropriate form for the registration and sale of the total number of Registrable Securities specified in such Demand Notice in accordance with the intended method or methods of distribution specified by the Holders in such Demand Notice. Subject to paragraph (h) below, the Company may include in such registration other securities for sale for its own account or for the account of any other holders of Common Stock ("Other Security Holders"). The Company shall use reasonable best efforts to cause such Registration Statement to be declared effective by the Commission as soon as reasonably practicable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not be obligated to file a Registration Statement pursuant to this Section 2(b): (1) if Form S-3 (or any successor form with substantially the same disclosure requirements) is not available for such offering by the Holders; or (2) if the Company has, within the six month period preceding the date of such request, already effected a registration under the Securities Act, other than a registration from which Registrable Securities of Holders have been excluded (with respect to all or any portion of the Registrable Securities requested by included in such registration) pursuant to the provisions of Section 3 hereof. (c) Subject to Section 2(d), upon the occurrence of any event that would cause the Registration Statement (A) to contain a material misstatement or omission or (B) to be not effective and usable for resale of Registrable Securities during the period that such Registration Statement is required to be effective and usable, the Company shall file an amendment to the Registration Statement as soon as reasonably practicable, in the case of clause (A), correcting any such misstatement or omission and, in the case of either clause (A) or (B), use reasonable best efforts to cause such amendment to be declared effective and such Registration Statement to become usable as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter. (d) The Company agrees to use reasonable best efforts to keep any Registration Statement filed pursuant to this Section 2 continuously effective and usable for the sale of Registrable Securities until the earlier of (i) 120 days from the date on which the Commission declares such Registration Statement effective, or (ii) the date on which all the Registrable Securities covered by such Registration Statement have been sold pursuant to such Registration Statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall have the right to delay the filing of any Registration Statement otherwise required to be prepared and filed by the Company pursuant to this Section 2, or to suspend the use of any Registration Statement, for a period not in excess of 90 days (a "Delay Period") if the Company shall furnish to the Holders whose Registrable Securities are included in such Registration Statement, a certificate signed by the President or Chief Executive Officer of the Company stating that, in the good faith judgment of the Board of Directors of the Company, it would be materially detrimental to the Company and its stockholders for such Holders to continue to make sales thereunder, provided, that the 120 day period set forth in clause (i) above shall be ex- <PAGE> tended by an amount of time equal to any Delay Period which interrupts such 120 period. The Company may not utilize this right more than once in any twelve (12) month period. (e) The Company shall not enter into any agreement granting any Other Security Holder piggyback rights to include such Other Security Holder's securities in any registration in which the Holders have the right to include Registrable Securities on a priority basis more favorable to such Other Security Holder than is provided to the Holders pursuant to Section 3(b). (f) Holders of a majority in number of the Registrable Securities to be included in a Demand Registration pursuant to this Section 2 may, at any time prior to the effective date of the Registration Statement in respect thereof, revoke such request by providing a written notice to the Company to such effect. (g) Preemption of Demand Registration. Notwithstanding anything to --------------------------------- the contrary contained herein, after receiving a written request for a Demand Registration, the Company may elect to effect an underwritten primary registration in lieu of the Demand Registration if the Company's Board of Directors believes that such primary registration would be in the best interests of the Company. If the Company so elects to effect a primary registration, the Company shall give prompt written notice (which shall be given not later than 20 days after the date of the Demand Notice) to all holders of the Registrable Securities of its intention to effect such a registration and shall afford the holders of the Registrable Securities the rights contained in Section 3 with respect to Piggyback Registrations. In the event that the Company so elects to effect a primary registration after receiving a request for a Demand Registration, the Company shall use reasonable best efforts to have the Registration Statement declared effective by the Commission as soon as reasonably practicable. In addition, the request for a Demand Registration shall be deemed to have been withdrawn and such primary registration shall not be deemed to be a Demand Registration. (h) Priority in Cutback. If a Demand Registration is an underwritten ------------------- offering and includes securities for sale by the Company, and the managing underwriter (such underwriters to be chosen by the Holders included in such registration, subject to the Company's reasonable approval) advises the Company, in writing, that, in its good faith judgment, the number of securities requested to be included in such registration exceeds the number which can be sold in such offering without materially and adversely affecting the marketability of the offering, then the Company will include in any such registration the maximum number of shares which the managing underwriter advises the Company can be sold in such offering allocated as follows: first the Registrable Securities ----- requested to be included in such registration by the Holders, pro rata on the --- ---- basis of the number of Registrable Securities requested to be included by such Holders, second the securities requested to be included in such registration by ------ the Company for its own account, and third the securities requested to be ----- included in such registration by the Company for the account of Other Security Holders. <PAGE> Section 3. Piggyback Registrations. (a) Right to Piggyback. Whenever the Company proposes to register ------------------ any of its equity securities under the Securities Act (other than a registration on Form S-4 relating solely to a transaction described in Rule 145 of the Securities Act or a registration on Form S-8 or any successor forms thereto), whether or not for sale for its own account, the Company will give prompt written notice of such proposed filing to all Holders at least 30 days before the anticipated filing date. Such notice shall offer such Holders the opportunity to register such amount of Registrable Securities as they shall request (a "Piggyback Registration"). Subject to Sections 3(b) and 3(c) hereof, the Company shall include in each such Piggyback Registration all Registrable Securities with respect to which the Company has received written requests for inclusion therein within 20 days after such notice has been given by the Holders to the Company. If the Registration Statement relating to the Piggyback Registration is to cover an underwritten offering, such Registrable Securities shall be included in the underwriting on the same terms and conditions as the securities otherwise being sold through the underwriters. Each Holder shall be permitted to withdraw all or part of the Registrable Securities from a Piggyback Registration at any time prior to the effective time of such Piggyback Registration. (b) Priority on Primary Registrations. If a Piggyback Registration --------------------------------- is an underwritten primary registration on behalf of the Company, by or through one or more underwriters of recognized standing and the managing underwriters advise the Company in writing that in their good faith judgment the number of securities requested to be included in such registration exceeds the number which can be sold in such offering without materially and adversely affecting the marketability of the offering, then the Company will include in the Registration Statement relating to such registration (i) first, the securities the Company proposes to sell, and (ii) second, the Registrable Securities requested to be included in such registration by the Holders and the securities requested to be included in such registration by any Other Security Holders that have requested inclusion of their securities, on a pro rata basis, based on the amount of Common Stock requested to be included therein. (c) Priority on Secondary Registrations. If a Piggyback Registration ----------------------------------- is an underwritten secondary registration on behalf of Other Security Holders, by or through one or more underwriters of recognized standing and the managing underwriter(s) advise the Company in writing that in their good faith judgment the number of securities requested to be included in such registration exceeds the number which can be sold in such offering without materially and adversely affecting the marketability of the offering, the Company will include in such registration, the securities owned by such Other Security Holders and the Registrable Securities requested to be included in such registration by the Holders thereof, reduced, in each case, on a pro rata basis, based on the amount of Common Stock requested to be included therein. Section 4. Hold-back Agreements. (a) The Company agrees (i) if so required by the managing underwriter of an underwritten offering effected pursuant to a Registration under Section 2 or 3 hereof, not to effect any public or private sale or distribution of securities of the same type (including <PAGE> any underlying securities) as the Registrable Securities included in such underwritten registration, or any securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for such securities, during the seven days prior to the pricing of such offering and until the earlier of (A) the end of the 180-day period beginning on the date of pricing of such offering (except as part of such underwritten offering and except pursuant to registrations on Form S-4 or Form S-8 (or any successor form to such Form)), unless the managing underwriter for such offering otherwise agrees, and (B) the abandonment of such offering, and (ii) to use reasonable best efforts to cause each holder of securities of the same type as the securities included in such underwritten offering, or any securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for such securities, in each case purchased from the Company at any time after the date of this Agreement (other than in a registered public offering) to agree not to effect any public or private sale or distribution or otherwise dispose (including sales pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act) of any such securities during such period (except as part of such underwritten registration, if otherwise permitted), unless the managing underwriter for such offering otherwise agrees. (b) If the Company registers securities of the Company in connection with an underwritten public offering of Common Stock solely by the Company, the Holders, if so requested by the managing underwriter of such underwritten offering, agree not to effect any public sale or distribution of any of the Registrable Securities, including any sale pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act (other than as a part of such underwritten public offering) without the consent of the Company or such managing underwriter during the period commencing on a date specified by the underwriter, such date not to exceed seven days prior to the effective date of such registration statement, and ending on the earlier of (A) 180 days after the pricing of such offering, (B) the abandonment of such offering and (C) the first date on which the Company or any affiliate or executive officer of the Company is permitted to sell shares of Common Stock of the Company. Section 5. Registration Procedures. Whenever the Company is required to register Registrable Securities pursuant to Section 2 or 3 hereof, the Company will use reasonable best efforts to effect the registration to permit the sale of such Registrable Securities in accordance with the intended method or methods of disposition thereof, and pursuant thereto the Company will as expeditiously as possible: (a) prepare and file with the Commission a Registration Statement with respect to such Registrable Securities as prescribed by Section 2 or 3 on a form available for the sale of the Registrable Securities by the holders thereof in accordance with the intended method or methods of distribution thereof and use reasonable best efforts to cause each such Registration Statement to become and remain effective within the time periods and otherwise as provided herein;

(d) use reasonable best efforts to register or qualify and, if applicable, to cooperate with the selling Holders, the underwriters, if any, and their respective counsel in connection with the registration or qualification (or exemption from such registration or qualification) of, the Registrable Securities for offer and sale under the securities or blue sky laws of such jurisdictions as any selling Holder or managing underwriters (if any) shall reasonably request, to keep each such registration or qualification (or exemption therefrom) effective during the period such Registration Statement is required to be kept effective and to do any and all other acts or things necessary or advisable to enable the disposition in such jurisdictions of the Securities covered by the applicable Registration Statement; provided, that the Company will not be required to (i) qualify generally to do business in any jurisdiction where it would not otherwise be required to qualify but for this paragraph or (ii) consent to general service of process or taxation in any such jurisdiction where it is not so subject; (e) use reasonable best efforts to cause all such Registrable Securities to be listed on each securities exchange on which securities of the same class as the Registrable Securities are then listed and, if not so listed, to be listed on the NASD automated quotation system and, if listed on the NASD automated quotation system, use reasonable best efforts to secure designation of all such Registrable Securities covered by such Registration Statement as a NASDAQ Security within the meaning of Rule 11Aa3-l under the Exchange Act or, failing that, to secure NASDAQ authorization for such Registrable Securities and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, to arrange for at least two market makers to register as such with respect to such Registrable Securities with the NASD;

(h) use reasonable best efforts to prevent the issuance of any order suspending the effectiveness of a Registration Statement or suspending the qualification (or exemption from qualification) of any of the Registrable Securities included therein for sale in any jurisdiction, and, in the event of the issuance of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of a Registration Statement, or of any order suspending the qualification of any Registrable Securities included in such Registration Statement for sale in any jurisdiction, the Company will use reasonable best efforts promptly to obtain the withdrawal of such order at the earliest possible moment;

Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, Holders shall be responsible for any pro rata share of brokerage or underwriting commissions and taxes of any kind (including, without limitation, transfer taxes) with respect to any disposition, sale or transfer of Registrable Securities and for any legal, accounting and other expenses incurred by them in connection with any Registration Statement. <PAGE> Section 7. Indemnification. (a) Indemnification by the Company. The Company agrees to ------------------------------ indemnify, to the fullest extent permitted by law, each Holder, each affiliate of a Holder and each officer, director, employee, counsel, agent or representative of such Holder and its affiliates and each Person who controls any such Person (within the meaning of either Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act) against, and hold it and them harmless from, all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, costs (including, without limitation, costs of preparation and attorneys' fees and disbursements) and expenses, including expenses of investigation (collectively, "Losses") arising out of, caused by or based upon any untrue or alleged untrue statement of material fact contained in any Registration Statement, or any omission or alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading (a "Misstatement/Omission"), or any violation or alleged violation by the Company of the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, any state securities law, or any rule or regulation promulgated under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act or any state securities law, except that the Company shall not be liable insofar as such Misstatement/Omission or violation is made in reliance upon and in conformity with information furnished in writing to the Company by such Holder expressly for use therein; provided, further that the Company shall not be liable for a Holder's failure to deliver or cause to be delivered (to the extent such delivery is required under the Securities Act) the Prospectus contained in the Registration Statement, furnished to it by the Company at or prior to the time such action is required by the Securities Act to the person claiming a Misstatement/Omission if such Misstatement/Omission was corrected in such Registration Statement. In connection with an underwritten offering, the Company will indemnify such underwriters, selling brokers, dealer managers and similar securities industry professionals participating in the distribution, their officers and directors and each Person who controls such underwriters (within the meaning of either Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act) to the same extent as provided above with respect to the indemnification of the Holders. This indemnity shall be in addition to any other indemnification arrangements to which the Company may otherwise be party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the indemnity contained in this section shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any such Losses if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Company (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), nor shall the Company be liable in any such case for any such Losses to the extent that they arise out of or are based upon a Misstatement/Omission included in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished expressly for use in connection with such Registration Statement by such Holder (or any partner, officer, director, underwriter or controlling person of such Holder). (b) Indemnification by the Holders. In connection with any ------------------------------ Registration Statement in which a Holder is participating, each such Holder agrees to indemnify, to the fullest extent permitted by law the Company and each affiliate, employee, counsel, agent, representative, director or officer of the Company and each Person who controls the Company (within the meaning of either Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act) against, and hold it harmless from, any Losses arising out of or based upon (i) any Misstatement/Omission contained in the Registration Statement, if and to the extent that such Misstatement/Omission arose out of or was based upon information furnished in writing by such Holder for use therein, or (ii) the failure by the Holder to deliver or cause to be deliv- <PAGE> ered (to the extent such delivery is required under the Securities Act) the Prospectus contained in the Registration Statement, furnished to it by the Company at or prior to the time such action is required by the Securities Act to the person claiming a Misstatement/Omission if such Misstatement/Omission was corrected in such Registration Statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the obligation to indemnify will be individual (several and not joint) to each Holder and will be limited to the net amount of proceeds (net of payment of all expenses) received by such Holder from the sale of Registrable Securities pursuant to such Registration Statement giving rise to such indemnification obligation. (c) Conduct of Indemnification Proceedings. In case any action, -------------------------------------- claim or proceeding shall be brought against any Person entitled to indemnification hereunder, such indemnified party shall promptly notify each indemnifying party in writing, and such indemnifying party shall assume the defense thereof, including the employment of one counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party and payment of all fees and expenses incurred in connection with the defense thereof. The failure to so notify such indemnifying party shall relieve such indemnifying party of its indemnification obligations to such indemnified party to the extent that such failure to notify prejudiced such indemnifying party. Each indemnified party shall have the right to employ separate counsel in such action, claim or proceeding and participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of each indemnified party unless: (i) such indemnifying party has agreed to pay such expenses; (ii) such indemnifying party has failed promptly to assume the defense and employ counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party; or (iii) the named parties to any such action, claim or proceeding (including any impleaded parties) include both such indemnified party and such indemnifying party or an affiliate or controlling person of such indemnifying party, and such indemnified party shall have been advised in writing by counsel that either (x) there may be one or more legal defenses available to it which are different from or in addition to those available to such indemnifying party or such affiliate or controlling person or (y) a conflict of interest may exist if such counsel represents such indemnified party and such indemnifying party or its affiliate or controlling person; provided, however, that such indemnifying party shall not, in connection with any one such action or proceeding or separate but substantially similar or related actions or proceedings in the same jurisdiction arising out of the same general allegations or circumstances, be responsible hereunder for the fees and expenses of more than one separate firm of attorneys (in addition to any local counsel), which counsel shall be designated by such indemnified party. No indemnifying party shall be liable for any settlement effected without its written consent (which consent may not be unreasonably withheld). Each indemnifying party agrees, jointly and severally, that it will not, without the indemnified party's prior written consent, consent to entry of any judgment or settle or compromise any pending or threatened claim, action or proceeding in respect of which indemnification or contribution may be sought hereunder unless the foregoing contains an unconditional release, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified parties, of the indemnified parties from all liability and obligation arising therefrom. The indemnifying party's liability to any such indemnified party hereunder shall not be extinguished solely because any other indemnified party is not entitled to indemnity hereunder. <PAGE> (d) Survival. The indemnification provided for under this -------- Agreement will (i) remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of the indemnified party or any officer, director or controlling Person of such indemnified party, (ii) survive the transfer of securities and (iii) survive the termination of this Agreement. (e) Right to Contribution. If the indemnification provided for in --------------------- this Section 7 is unavailable to, or insufficient to hold harmless, an indemnified party under Section 7(a) or Section 7(b) above in respect of any Losses referred to in such Sections, then each applicable indemnifying party shall have an obligation to contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of such Losses in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Company, on the one hand, and of the Holder, on the other, in connection with the Misstatement/Omission which resulted in such Losses, taking into account any other relevant equitable considerations. The amount paid or payable by a party as a result of the Losses referred to above shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth in Section 7(c) above, any legal or other fees or expenses reasonably incurred by such party in connection with any investigation, lawsuit or legal or administrative action or proceeding. The relative fault of the Company, on the one hand, and of the Holder, on the other, shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the relevant Misstatement/Omission relates to information supplied by the Company or by the Holder and the parties' relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such Misstatement/Omission. The Company and each Holder agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 7(e) were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to above. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 7(e), a Holder shall not be required to contribute any amount in excess of the amount by which (i) the amount (net of payment of all expenses) at which the securities that were sold by such Holder and distributed to the public were offered to the public exceeds (ii) the amount of any damages which such Holder has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such Misstatement/Omission. No Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. Section 8. Rules 144 and 144A. The Company shall timely file the reports required to be filed by it under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act (including but not limited to the reports under Sections 13 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act referred to in subparagraph (c) of Rule 144 adopted by the Commission under the Securities Act) and the rules and regulations adopted by the Commission thereunder (or, if the Company is not required to file such reports, it will, upon the request of any holder of Registrable Securities, make publicly available other information) and will take such further action as any holder of Registrable Securities may reasonably request, all to the extent required from time to time to enable such Holder to sell Registrable Securities without registration under the Securities Act within the limitation of the ex- <PAGE> emptions provided by (a) Rule 144 and Rule 144A under the Securities Act, as such Rules may be amended from time to time, or (b) any similar rule or regulation hereafter adopted by the Commission. Section 9. Underwritten Registrations. No Person may participate in any registration hereunder which is underwritten unless such Person (i) agrees to sell such Person's securities on the basis provided in any underwriting arrangements approved by the Person or Persons entitled hereunder to approve such arrangements and (ii) completes and executes all questionnaires, powers of attorney, customary indemnities, underwriting agreements and other documents required under the terms of such underwriting arrangements; provided, that no Holder included in any underwritten registration shall be required to make any representations or warranties to the Company or the underwriters other than representations and warranties regarding such Holder and such Holder's intended method of distribution. Section 10. Covenants of Holders. Each of the Holders hereby agrees (a) to cooperate with the Company and to furnish to the Company all such information in connection with the preparation of the Registration Statement and any filings with any state securities commissions as the Company may reasonably request, (b) to the extent required by the Securities Act, to deliver or cause delivery of the prospectus contained in the Registration Statement, any amendment or supplement thereto, to any purchaser of the Registrable Securities covered by the Registration Statement from the Holder and (c) to notify the Company within three months after any sale of Registrable Securities by such Holder or, in the case of a sale of all or substantially all of the Registrable Securities owned by a Holder, within ten days after such sale. Section 11. Miscellaneous. (a) No Inconsistent Agreements. The Company will not hereafter -------------------------- enter into any agreement with respect to its securities which is inconsistent with, adversely effects or violates the rights granted to the Holders in this Agreement. (b) Remedies. Any Person having rights under any provision of this -------- Agreement will be entitled to enforce such rights specifically to recover damages caused by reason of any breach of any provision of this Agreement and to exercise all other rights provided in the Share Exchange Agreement or granted by law. The parties hereto agree and acknowledge that money damages may not be an adequate remedy for any breach of the provisions of this Agreement and hereby agree to waive the defense in any action for specific performance or injunctive relief that a remedy at law would be adequate. Accordingly, any party may in its sole discretion apply to any court of law or equity of competent jurisdiction (without posting any bond or other security) for specific performance and for other injunctive relief in order to enforce or prevent violation of the provisions of this Agreement. (c) Amendments and Waivers. Except as otherwise provided herein, the ---------------------- provisions of this Agreement, including the provisions of this sentence, may be <PAGE> amended, modified, supplemented or waived only upon the prior written consent of the Company and Holders of a majority of the outstanding Registrable Securities. (d) Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall be binding upon and ---------------------- inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the Company. This Agreement may only be assigned by any Holder to any other Holder, unless otherwise consented to by the Company (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld) and any other attempted assignment hereof by any Holder will be void and of no effect and shall terminate all obligations of the Company hereunder with respect to such Holder. None of the rights of any Investor or Holder may be assigned other than to a Holder who agrees in writing to be bound by this Agreement. No rights under this Agreement may be assigned to any Person if the sale of Registrable Securities to such Person is prohibited under the Share Exchange Agreement or if such Person is a competitor of the Company. The Company shall be given written notice by the transferring Investor or Holder at the time of the transfer stating the name and address of the transferee and identifying the Registrable Securities transferred, provided, that failure to give such -------- ---- notice shall not affect the validity of such transfer or assignment. (e) Severability. In the event that any one or more of the ------------ provisions contained herein, or the application thereof in any circumstances, is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect for any reason, the validity, legality and enforceability of any such provision in every other respect and of the remaining provisions hereof shall not be in any way impaired or affected, it being intended that the rights and privileges of the parties hereto shall be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law. (f) Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of ------------ counterparts, any one of which need not contain the signatures of more than one party, but each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all such counterparts taken together shall constitute one and the same Agreement. (g) Descriptive Headings: Interpretation. The descriptive headings ------------------------------------ of this Agreement are inserted for convenience of reference only and shall not limit or otherwise affect the meaning hereof. The use of the word "including" in this Agreement shall be by way of example rather than by limitation. (h) Notices.
