credit, drafts, bankers acceptances other rights to payment and all proceeds
arising from the invoices and other agreements on the Schedule. "Purchased

dispositions, including insurance proceeds.

          1.4 "Schedule" is the attached schedule showing the: Purchase Date,
Due Date, Total Purchased Receivables, Discount Rate, Purchase Price,
Administrative Fee and Interest Reserve amount.

     2. Purchase and Sale of Receivables.

          2.1 Sale and Purchase. On the Purchase Date, Seller sells and Buyer
buys Seller's right, title, and interest (but none of Sellers obligations) to
payment from any person liable on a Purchased Receivable, ("Account Debtors").

          Each purchase and sale is at Buyer's and Seller's discretion. Buyer
will not (i) pay Seller an aggregate outstanding amount exceeding Two Million
Five Hundred Thousand and No/100*****($2,500,000.00) or (ii) buy any Purchased
Receivable after September 24, 1999 (the "Maturity Date"). Each purchase and
sale will be on an assignment form acceptable to Buyer.

          2.2 Payment of Purchase Price and Late Payment.

               (a) Payment of Purchase Price. For each Purchased Receivable,
Buyer will pay Seller, on the Purchase Date, the Purchase Price, less the
Administrative Fee and legal fees (if any).

               (b) Late Payment. If Payment is made after the Due Date, as
listed on the Schedule, then on the earlier of Payment or 90 days after the
scheduled payment date, Seller will also pay Buyer the product of the Discount
Rate and the average daily balance of the unpaid Purchased Receivable multiplied
by the number of days between the scheduled payment date or the earlier of the
date of actual payment or 90 days after the scheduled payment date, divided by
360; provided, however, that with respect to Purchased Receivables as to which
payment is to be made directly to Buyer, Seller shall not be liable for making
any such payment to Buyer until five (5) business days after receipt by Seller
from Buyer of the information reasonably required to calculate the amount

               (c) Late Payment Reserve. Buyer will maintain a reserve as listed
on the Schedule against any late payments on any Purchased Receivables, if any
late payment arises out of circumstances that are a breach of Seller's
representations. Buyer will retain an amount equal to the product of the
Discount Rate and the average daily balance of the unpaid Purchased Receivables
multiplied by the number of days between the scheduled payment date or the
earlier of the date of actual payment or 90 days after the scheduled payment
date, divided by 360 days. If the late payment arises under any other
circumstances, Buyer will return the reserve to Seller.

          2.3 Seller may not sell or convey any interest in Related Property
without Buyer's prior written consent. Seller will sign UCC financing statements
and any other instruments or documents to evidence, perfect or protect Buyer's
interests in the Purchased Receivables and Related Property. Seller will deliver

               (e) compromise, prosecute or defend any action or claim involving
a Purchased Receivable including filing or voting a claim in a bankruptcy case;
