other Partner from any transaction connected with the formation, conduct, or
liquidation of the Partnership or from any use by it of Partnership property.

         (d) The Partnership shall keep or cause to be kept full records of each
transaction of the Partnership and shall maintain such records at the principal
office of the Partnership or at the principal office of the partnership's
accounting firm. Said records shall be open for inspection and examination by
all Partners, or their duly authorized representative, at all reasonable times.
The fiscal year of the Partnership shall end on December 31.

         10.      Withdrawal from Partnership.
         (a) Partial or complete withdrawal. Each Partner shall have the right
to withdraw either partially or completely from the Partnership at the end of
any fiscal year or at the end of the second quarter of any fiscal year. Written
notice of intention to withdraw shall be served on the remaining Partner by the
withdrawing Partner at least 45 days before the end of such fiscal year or
quarter. The partial or complete withdrawal of a Partner shall have no effect on
the continuance of the partnership business.

         (b) Distribution. The distribution for the withdrawn Partnership Units
shall be the fair market value thereof, as of the close of business on the
effective date of the withdrawal (the end of the fiscal year or the end of the
second quarter of the fiscal year). The fair market value of each Unit shall be
determined by substituting the fair market value as of such date, in place of
the book value, of all asset value, as redetermined, all liabilities of the
Partnership as of such date, and dividing the resulting figure (representing the
net fair market value of all Units of the partnership) by the total number of
Partnership Units being withdrawn.

         To the extent possible, the determination of the fair market value of
the Partnership Unit shall be made by the certified public accountant who is
then servicing the Partnership.

         In making the adjustment for the fair market value of any asset without
a readily ascertainable value and with respect to which the fair market value
cannot be agreed upon by the Partnership and withdrawing Partner, the
Partnership shall apply and rely upon the written appraisal of a qualified
appraiser of such asset, selected by the Partnership for that purpose at the

                                      - 5 -


expense of the Partnership. All such determinations of fair market value shall
be made within 60 days after the effective date of the withdrawal of a
Partnership Unit.

         (c) Payment. Payment from the Partnership for the Units withdrawn by a
Partner pursuant to this paragraph shall be made within 120 days after the
determination of the value of the partnership Units.

         11. Transfer of partnership interest.
         (a) Permitted transfers. Subject to paragraph 11(b) below, a Partner's
interest is assignable in whole or in part. A Partner ceases to be a Partner
upon assignment of all its Partnership interest.

         A conveyance by a Partner of its interest in the Partnership does not
of itself dissolve the partnership, nor, as against the other Partners in the
absence of agreement, entitle the assignee, during the continuance of the
Partnership, to interfere in the management or administration of the partnership
business or affairs, or to require any information or account of partnership
transactions, or to inspect Partnership books; but it merely entitles the
assignee to receive in accordance with its contract the profits to which the
assigning Partner would have otherwise been entitled.

         (b) Prohibited transfers. A Partner shall not pledge, cause a lien to
be placed against, or encumber, its partnership interest in any way. Unless
authorized by the other Partners, a Partner has no authority to assign the
Partnership property in trust for creditors or on the

                                      - 6 -


assignee's promise to pay the debts of the Partnership; dispose of the good will
of the business; do any other act which would make it impossible to carry on the
ordinary business of the Partnership; confess a judgment, submit a Partnership
claim or liability to arbitration or reference.

         A Partner shall not sell or in any other way transfer its Partnership
interest without first offering such interest for sale to the Partnership in a
writing addressed and delivered to the principal office of the Partnership. Said
notice shall set forth the proposed sale price and terms of sale. Thereupon, the
Partnership shall have a period of 30 days to notify the selling Partner of its
intention to purchase the interest offered for sale pursuant of the terms of
that offer. If the Partnership shall timely elect to purchase the selling
Partner's interest, then within 45 days after receipt by the Partnership of such
offer to sell, the partnership shall purchase said interest at the price and on
the terms at which said interest is offered for sale. If the interest is not
purchased by the Partnership within said 45-day period, then during the
six-month period thereafter the offering Partner may sell his Partnership
interest so offered for sale to any person whomsoever. Provided, however, that
said interest shall not be sold at a lower price or on more favorable terms that
than the price and terms set forth in the notice sent by the Partner in
accordance with this paragraph 11(b). And provided further, however, that if the
offering Partner does not sell his Partnership interest within the said
six-month period, then thereafter he shall not sell or in any other way transfer
such interest without first reoffering such interest for sale to the
Partnership, in the manner set forth in this paragraph 11(b).
