B.	The Parties expect to share in the future a variety of services as
set forth in this agreement.
C.	The Parties desire to share services and to enter into this
Agreement to provide an arms-length basis for determining each

In consideration of the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement,
the Parties agree as follows:

1.    Management and Administrative Services.  HMC agrees to provide HEC, for
so long as HEC may request, full administrative support including,
without limitation, making its relevant employees available to HEC as is
necessary to provide management and administrative support to HEC's day-
to-day operations.  Such services shall include planning, accounting,
legal, tax, operational, financial, treasury, budgeting, warehousing,
marketing other related services which may be requested by HEC from time
to time (the "Management and Administrative Services").

2.    Purchasing Services.  HMC agrees to operate as an agent of HEC, for so
long as HEC may request, to purchase goods including, without limitation,
all new and used tapes, video games, audio books and other necessary
rental and sell through inventory items (the "Purchasing Services") that
HEC deems appropriate to carry on its day-today operations.

3.    Insurance.  Each Party agrees to pay its respective prorated portions of
premiums for any common liability and property insurance policies and
life, health and disability insurance plans.  HMC agrees to provide HEC
with administrative services relating to its insurance requirements.

4.    Fees.
(a) Management and Administrative Services Fee.  In consideration for
the Management and Administrative Services, HEC agrees to pay HMC a
fee equal to the costs incurred by HMC to provide the Management
and Administrative Services plus a fifteen percent (15%) mark-up on
such costs (the "Administrative Services Fee").  The costs incurred
by HMC to provide the Management and Administrative Services to HEC
shall equal the direct and indirect labor, materials and overhead
costs, plus all other compensation received or recognized by HMC
employees during the year.

Services, HEC agrees to pay HMC a fee equal to 6% of the purchase
price of items HMC purchases for HEC (the "Purchasing Fee").
(c) Payment of Fees.  HMC shall invoice HEC for both the Administrative
Services Fee and the Purchasing Fee at least once a month.  The
invoice is payable by HEC within fifteen (15) days of receipt of
the invoice. Any difference between the estimated fee paid during
the year and the actual amount due shall be settled by and between
the  parties not more than 60 days following the close of each
annual accounting period.

5.    Other Transactions.  Both Parties agree that all future transactions or
other arrangements, if any, with the other Party (other than the
transactions and arrangements specifically addressed in this Agreement)
will be on an arms-length basis containing terms no less favorable to HMC
or HEC, respectively, then could have been obtained from an unrelated
third party.

6.    Maintenance of Records; Right to Inspect.  HMC agrees to maintain such
records as are required to evidence its compliance with the terms of this
Agreement.  HMC shall permit one or more representatives of any Party
that is obligated to pay or makes payment to HMC for goods or services
pursuant to this Agreement to inspect, at any reasonable time and upon
reasonable terms, the records of HMC pertaining to the basis for such
payment and to HMC's compliance with the provisions of this Agreement.

proceedings, claims, demands, costs, liabilities, damages or losses of
any kind or nature whatsoever that may be brought, commenced or
prosecuted against or incurred by HMC by reason of actions taken by it or
its obligations under this Agreement (and also against all costs, damages
and expenses that HMC may pay or incur in defending or settling the same)
except to the extent any such action, proceeding, claim, demand, cost,
liability, damage or loss arises out of or is caused  by the gross
negligence or willful misconduct of HMC.
