In order to induce GBC to enter into this Agreement and to make Loans, Borrower represents and warrants to GBC as follows, and Borrower covenants that the following representations will continue to be true, and that Borrower will at all times comply with all of the following covenants: 3.1 CORPORATE EXISTENCE AND AUTHORITY. Borrower, if a corporation, is and will continue to be, duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation. Borrower is and will continue to be qualified and licensed to do business in all jurisdictions in which any failure to do so would have a material adverse effect on Borrower. The execution, delivery and performance by Borrower of this Agreement, and all other documents contemplated hereby (i) have been duly and validly authorized, (ii) are enforceable against Borrower in accordance with their terms (except as enforcement may be limited by equitable principles and by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws relating to creditors' rights generally), (iii) do not violate Borrower's articles or certificate of incorporation, or Borrower's by-laws, or any law or any material agreement or instrument which is binding upon -1- <PAGE> 2 GREYROCK BUSINESS CREDIT LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Borrower or its property, and (iv) do not constitute grounds for acceleration of any material indebtedness or obligation under any material agreement or instrument which is binding upon Borrower or its property. 3.2 NAME; TRADE NAMES AND STYLES. The name of Borrower set forth in the heading to this Agreement is its correct name. Listed on the Schedule are all prior names of Borrower and all of Borrower's present and prior trade names. Borrower shall give GBC 30 days' prior written notice before changing its name or doing business under any other name. Borrower has complied, and will in the future comply, with all laws relating to the conduct of business under a fictitious business name. 3.3 PLACE OF BUSINESS; LOCATION OF COLLATERAL. The address set forth in the heading to this Agreement is Borrower's chief executive office. In addition, Borrower has places of business and Collateral is located only at the locations set forth on the Schedule. Borrower will give GBC at least 30 days prior written notice before opening any additional place of business, changing its chief executive office, or moving any of the Collateral to a location other than Borrower's Address or one of the locations set forth on the Schedule. 3.4 TITLE TO COLLATERAL; PERMITTED LIENS. Borrower is now, and will at all times in the future be, the sole owner of all the Collateral, except for items of Equipment which are leased by Borrower. The Collateral now is and will remain free and clear of any and all liens, charges, security interests, encumbrances and adverse claims, except for Permitted Liens. GBC now has, and will continue to have, a first-priority perfected and enforceable security interest in all of the Collateral, subject only to the Permitted Liens, and Borrower will at all times defend GBC and the Collateral against all claims of others. So long as any Loan is outstanding which is a term loan, none of the Collateral now is or will be affixed to any real property in such a manner, or with such intent, as to become a fixture. Borrower is not and will not become a lessee under any real property lease pursuant to which the lessor may obtain any rights in any of the Collateral and no such lease now prohibits, restrains, impairs or will prohibit, restrain or impair Borrower's right to remove any Collateral from the leased premises. Whenever any Collateral is located upon premises in which any third party has an interest (whether as owner, mortgagee, beneficiary under a deed of trust, lien or otherwise), Borrower shall, whenever requested by GBC, use its best efforts to cause such third party to execute and deliver to GBC, in form acceptable to GBC, such waivers and subordinations as GBC shall specify, so as to ensure that GBC's rights in the Collateral are, and will continue to be, superior to the rights of any such third party. Borrower will keep in full force and effect, and will comply with all the terms of, any lease of real property where any of the Collateral now or in the future may be located. 3.5 MAINTENANCE OF COLLATERAL. Borrower will maintain the Collateral in good working condition, ordinary wear and tear excepted, and Borrower will not use the Collateral for any unlawful purpose. Borrower will immediately advise GBC in writing of any material loss or damage to the Collateral. 3.6 BOOKS AND RECORDS. Borrower will maintain at Borrower's Address complete and accurate books and records, comprising an accounting system in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. 3.7 FINANCIAL CONDITION, STATEMENTS AND REPORTS. All financial statements now or in the future delivered to GBC have been, and will be, prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles and now and in the future will completely and fairly reflect the financial condition of Borrower, at the times and for the periods therein stated [*]. Between the last date covered by any such statement provided to GBC and the date hereof, there has been no material adverse change in the financial condition or business of Borrower. * , SUBJECT TO NORMAL YEAR-END ACCRUALS AND AUDIT ADJUSTMENTS 3.8 TAX RETURNS AND PAYMENTS; PENSION CONTRIBUTIONS. Borrower has timely filed, and will timely file, all tax returns and reports required by applicable law, and Borrower has timely paid, and will timely pay, all applicable taxes, assessments, deposits and contributions now or in the future owed by Borrower. Borrower may, however, defer payment of any contested taxes, provided that Borrower (i) in good faith contests Borrower's obligation to pay the taxes by appropriate proceedings promptly and diligently instituted and conducted, (ii) notifies GBC in writing of the commencement of, and any material development in, the proceedings, and (iii) posts bonds or takes any other steps required to keep the contested taxes from becoming a lien upon any of the Collateral. Borrower is unaware of any claims or adjustments proposed for any of Borrower's prior tax years which could result in additional taxes becoming due and payable by Borrower. Borrower has paid, and shall continue to pay all amounts necessary to fund all present and future pension, profit sharing and deferred compensation plans in accordance with their terms, and Borrower has not and will not withdraw from participation in, permit partial or complete termination of, or permit the occurrence of any other event with respect to, any such plan which could result in any liability of Borrower, including any liability to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation or any other governmental agency. Borrower shall, at all times, utilize the services of an outside payroll service providing for the automatic deposit of all payroll taxes payable by Borrower. 3.9 COMPLIANCE WITH LAW. Borrower has complied, and will comply, in all material respects, with all provisions of all applicable laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, those relating to Borrower's ownership of real or personal property, the conduct and licensing of Borrower's business, and all environmental matters. -2- <PAGE> 3 GREYROCK BUSINESS CREDIT LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.10 LITIGATION. Except as disclosed in the Schedule, there is no claim, suit, litigation, proceeding or investigation pending or (to best of Borrower's knowledge) threatened by or against or affecting Borrower in any court or before any governmental agency (or any basis therefor known to Borrower) which may result, either separately or in the aggregate, in any material adverse change in the financial condition or business of Borrower, or in any material impairment in the ability of Borrower to carry on its business in substantially the same manner as it is now being conducted. Borrower will promptly inform GBC in writing of any claim, proceeding, litigation or investigation in the future threatened or instituted by or against Borrower involving any single claim of [*] or more, or involving [**] or more in the aggregate. *$500,000 **$1,000,000 3.11 USE OF PROCEEDS.

Borrower shall deliver to GBC transaction reports and loan requests, schedules of all Receivables, and schedules of collections, all on GBC's standard forms; provided, however, that Borrower's failure to execute and deliver the same shall not affect or limit GBC's security interest and other rights in all of Borrower's Receivables, nor shall GBC's failure to advance or lend against a specific Receivable affect or limit GBC's security interest and other rights therein. Together with each such schedule, or later if requested by GBC, Borrower shall furnish GBC with copies (or, at GBC's request, originals) of all contracts, orders, invoices, and other similar documents, and all original shipping instructions, delivery receipts, bills of lading, and other evidence of delivery, for any goods the sale or disposition of which gave rise to such Receivables, and Borrower warrants the genuineness of all of the foregoing.

Provided no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, if any Account Debtor returns any Inventory to Borrower in the ordinary course of its business, Borrower shall promptly determine the reason for such return and promptly issue a credit memorandum to the Account Debtor in the appropriate amount (sending a copy to GBC).

Nothing herein shall, however, relieve GBC from liability for its own gross negligence or willful misconduct. 5. ADDITIONAL DUTIES OF THE BORROWER. 5.1 INSURANCE. Borrower shall, at all times, insure all of the tangible personal property Collateral and carry such other business insurance, with insurers reasonably acceptable to GBC, in such form and amounts as [*] and Borrower shall provide evidence of such insurance to GBC, so that GBC is satisfied that such insurance is, at all times, in full force and effect.

The foregoing inspections and audits shall be at Borrower's expense and the charge therefor shall be $600 per person per day (or such higher amount as shall represent GBC's then current standard charge for the same), plus reasonable out-of-pockets expenses. Borrower shall not be charged more than $3,000 per audit (plus reasonable out-of-pockets expenses), nor shall audits be done more frequently than four times per calendar year, provided that the foregoing limits shall not apply after the occurrence of a Default or Event of Default [*], nor shall they restrict GBC's right to conduct audits at its own expense (whether or not a Default or Event of Default has occurred).

Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, without limiting GBC's other rights and remedies, Borrower grants to GBC an irrevocable power of attorney coupled with an interest, authorizing and permitting GBC (acting through any of its employees, attorneys or agents) at any time, at its option, but without obligation, with or without notice to Borrower, and at Borrower's expense, to do any or all of the following, in Borrower's name or otherwise, but GBC agrees to exercise the following powers in a commercially reasonable manner: (a) Execute on behalf of Borrower any documents that GBC may, in its sole discretion, deem advisable in order to perfect and maintain GBC's security interest in the Collateral, or in order to exercise a right of Borrower or GBC, or in order to fully consummate all the transactions contemplated under this Agreement, and all other present and future agreements; (b) Execute on behalf of Borrower any document exercising, transferring or assigning any option to purchase, sell or otherwise dispose of or to lease (as lessor or lessee) any real or personal property which is part of GBC's Collateral or in which GBC has an interest; (c) Execute on behalf of Borrower, any invoices relating to any Receivable, any draft against any Account Debtor and any notice to any Account Debtor, any proof of claim in bankruptcy, any Notice of Lien, claim of mechanic's, materialman's or other lien, or assignment or satisfaction of mechanic's, materialman's or other lien; (d) Take control in any manner of any cash or non-cash items of payment or proceeds of Collateral; endorse the name of Borrower upon any instruments, or documents, evidence of payment or Collateral that may come into GBC's possession; (e) Endorse all checks and other forms of remittances received by GBC; (f) Pay, contest or settle any lien, charge, encumbrance, security interest and adverse claim in or to any of the Collateral, or any judgment based thereon, or otherwise take any action to terminate or discharge the same; (g) Grant extensions of time to pay, compromise claims and settle Receivables and General Intangibles for less than face value and execute all releases and other documents in connection therewith; (h) Pay any sums required on account of Borrower's taxes or to secure the release of any liens therefor, or both; (i) Settle and adjust, and give releases of, any insurance claim that relates to any of the Collateral and obtain payment therefor; (j) Instruct any third party having custody or control of any books or records belonging to, or relating to, Borrower to give GBC the same rights of access and other rights with respect thereto as GBC has under this Agreement; and (k) Take any action or pay any sum required of Borrower pursuant to this Agreement and any other present or future agreements. Any and all reasonable sums paid and any and all reasonable costs, expenses, liabilities, obligations and reasonable attorneys' fees incurred by GBC with respect to the foregoing shall be added to and become part of the Obligations, shall be payable on demand, and shall bear interest at a rate equal to the highest interest rate applicable to any of the Obligations. In no event shall GBC's rights under the foregoing power of attorney or any of GBC's other rights under this Agreement be deemed to indicate that GBC is in control of the business, management or properties of Borrower. 7.5 APPLICATION OF PROCEEDS. All proceeds realized as the result of any sale or other disposition of the Collateral shall be applied by GBC first to the reasonable costs, expenses, liabilities, obligations and attorneys' fees incurred by GBC in the exercise of its rights under this Agreement, second to the interest due upon any of the Obligations, and third to the principal of the Obligations, in such order as GBC shall determine in its sole discretion. Any surplus shall be paid to Borrower or other persons legally entitled thereto; Borrower shall remain liable to GBC for any deficiency. If GBC, in its sole discretion, directly or indirectly enters into a deferred payment or other credit transaction with any purchaser at any sale of Collateral, GBC shall have the option, exercisable at any time, in its sole discretion, of either reducing the Obligations by the principal amount of purchase price or deferring the reduction of the Obligations until the actual receipt by GBC of the cash therefor. 7.6 REMEDIES CUMULATIVE. In addition to the rights and remedies set forth in this Agreement, GBC shall have all the other rights and remedies accorded a secured party under the California Uniform Commercial Code and under all other applicable laws, and under any other instrument or agreement now or in the future entered into between GBC and Borrower, and all of such rights and remedies are cumulative and none is exclusive. Exercise or partial exercise by GBC of one or more of its rights or remedies shall not be deemed an election, nor bar GBC from subsequent exercise or partial exercise of any other rights or remedies. The failure or delay of GBC to exercise any rights or remedies shall not operate as a waiver thereof, but all rights and remedies shall continue in full force and effect until all of the Obligations have been fully paid and performed. -8- <PAGE> 9 GREYROCK BUSINESS CREDIT LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 8.
