All parties should review the original lease agreement to see if there are any restrictions on subletting or assigning the premises.

not made any disposition, assignment, sublease, or conveyance of the Lease or

harmless from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, damages (direct
and/or consequential), penalties, claims, costs, charges and expenses
(including, without limitation, attorneys' fees) which may be imposed upon,
incurred by, or asserted against Landlord and arising, directly or indirectly,
out of or in connection with the use, nonuse, possession, occupancy, condition,
operation, maintenance or management of the Premises or any part thereof prior
to and including the day immediately preceding the Early Termination Date, any
act or omission of Tenant or any of its assignees, concessionaires, agents,
contractors, employees or invitees, any injury or damage to any person or
property occurring in, on or about the Premises, or any part thereof, prior to
and including the day immediately preceding the Early Termination Date, or any
failure on the part of Tenant to perform or comply with any of the covenants,
agreements, terms or conditions contained in the Lease to be observed or
performed by Tenant. In addition, Tenant hereby agrees to pay to Landlord for
each day Tenant retains possession of the Premises or any part thereof after the
Early Termination Date all damages, consequential as well as direct, sustained
by Landlord by reason of such retention.

     8.   It is agreed and understood that Tenant may acknowledge only the
existence of an agreement between Landlord and Tenant pertaining to the
termination of the Lease, and that Tenant may not disclose any of the terms and
provisions contained in this Agreement to any other party unless required by
applicable law. Tenant acknowledges that any breach by Tenant in this Paragraph
8 shall cause Landlord irreparable harm. The terms and provisions of this
Paragraph 8 shall survive the termination of the Lease pursuant to the terms of
this Agreement.

     9.   Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Tenant
shall remain liable for all year-end adjustments with respect to Taxes for
years 1996 (payable in 1997) and 1997 (payable in 1998) prorated to the day
immediately preceding the Early Termination Date. Such adjustment shall be paid
at the time, in the manner and otherwise accordance with the terms of the Lease.

    10.   This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of
Landlord and Tenant, and their respective successors, assigns and related
entities. Any term that is capitalized but not defined in this Agreement that is
capitalized and defined in the Lease shall have the same meaning for purposes of
this Agreement as it has for purposes of the Lease.


     11.  This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall
constitute an original, and all of which, when taken together, shall constitute
one and the same instrument.

     12.  Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary,
Landlord and Tenant acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is contingent upon
Landlord executing a Lease (the "Other Lease") with a new tenant for the
Premises on or before June 1, 1997. If the Other Lease is not executed by
Landlord on or before June 25, 1997, this Agreement shall automatically
terminate and be of no further force or effect.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Landlord and Tenant have executed this Agreement on the
day and year first above written.
