other representatives of its own choosing, on behalf of and for the account and
risk of the Indemnifying Party (subject to the right of the Indemnifying Party
to assume defense of such Claim at any time prior to settlement, compromise or
final determination thereof).

                  (d)   Anything in this Section 6.4 to the contrary
notwithstanding, (i) if there is a reasonable probability that a Claim may
materially and adversely affect the Indemnified Party other than as a result of
money damages or other money payments, the Indemnified Party shall have the
right, at its own cost and expense, to participate in the defense, compromise or
settlement of the Claim; (ii) the Indemnifying Party shall not, without the
Indemnified Party's written consent, settle or compromise any Claim or consent
to entry of any judgment which does not include as an unconditional term thereof
the giving by the claimant or the plaintiff to the Indemnified Party of a
release from all liability in respect of such Claim, and (iii) in the event that
the Indemnifying Party undertakes defense of any Claim, the Indemnified Party,
by counsel or other representative of its own choosing and at its sole cost
and expense, shall have the right to consult with the Indemnfiying Party and
its counsel or other representatives concerning such Claim and the Indemnifying
Party and the Indemnified Party and their respective counsel or other
representatives shall cooperate with respect to such Claim.

            7.1   CHANGE OF NAME.   As soon as practicable after the Closing,
Seller shall change (and the Shareholders shall cause Seller to make such
change) its name to a name which is substantially dissimilar to "Cymitar."

anytime in the future.

      8.    MISCELLANEOUS.

            8.1.  SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE. Seller acknowledges that the Assets to
be sold and delivered by Buyer pursuant to this Agreement are unique and that
Buyer has no adequate remedy at law if Seller shall fail to perform any of their
obligations hereunder, and Seller therefore confirm and agree that Buyer's
right to specific performance is essential to protect the rights and interests


Buyer. Accordingly, in addition to any other remedies which Buyer may have
hereunder or at law or in equity or otherwise, Seller hereby agree that Buyer
shall have the right to have all obligations, undertakings, agreements and
other provisions of this Agreement specifically performed by Seller and that
Buyer shall have the right to obtain an order or decree of such specific
performance in any of the courts of the United States or of any state or
other political subdivision thereof.

            8.2.  FURTHER ASSURANCES. Each of the parties hereto agrees that it
will, at any time, prior to, at or after Closing, take or cause to be taken such
further actions, and execute, deliver and file or cause to be executed,
delivered and filed such further documents and instruments, and obtain such
consents, as may reasonably be necessary or reasonably requested in connection
with the consummation of the purchase and sale contemplated by this Agreement or
in order to fully effectuate the purposes, terms and conditions of this

            8.3   BROKERS. Each of Seller and Buyer represents to the other that
it has not retained any broker or person in connection with the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement.

            8.4   SCHEDULES AND EXHIBITS. Any item set forth on or in any
Schedule or Exhibit to this Agreement shall be deemed to be incorporated by
reference into this Agreement and any information disclosed in any Schedule
shall be deemed to have been disclosed pursuant to all other Schedules to this

            8.5   WAIVER. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, no
delay or failure on the part of any party hereto in exercising any right, power
or privilege under this Agreement or under any other instrument or document
given in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement shall impair any such
right, power or privilege or be construed as a waiver of any default or any
acquiescence therein. No single or partial exercise of any such right, power or
privilege shall preclude the further exercise of any such right, power or
privilege, or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. No waiver
shall be valid against any party hereto unless made in writing and signed by the
party against whom enforcement of such waiver is sought and then only to the
extent expressly specified therein.

            8.6   REMEDIES CUMULATIVE. Except as specifically provided herein,
the remedies provided herein shall be cumulative and shall not preclude the
assertion by Seller or by Buyer of any other rights or the seeking of any other
remedies against the other, or its successors or assigns. Nothing contained
herein shall preclude a party from seeking equitable relief, where appropriate.

            8.7   ENTIRE AGREEMENT; AMENDMENT. This Agreement, including the
Schedules and Exhibits hereto and other instruments and documents referred to
herein or delivered pursuant hereto, contains the entire agreement among the
parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior oral
or written agreements, commitments or understandings with respect to such
matters. No amendment, modification or discharge of this Agreement shall be
valid or binding unless set forth in writing and duly executed by the party
against whom enforcement of the amendment, modification or discharge is sought.

            8.8   HEADINGS. The headings of the sections and subsections
contained in this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and do not form a
part or affect the meaning, construction or scope thereof.


            8.9   SIGNATURE IN COUNTERPARTS. This Agreement may be executed in
separate counterparts, none of which need contain the signature of all parties,
each of which shall be deemed to be an original, and all of which taken together
constitute one and the same instrument. It shall not be necessary in making
proof of this Agreement to produce or account for more than the number of
counterparts containing the respective signatures of, or on behalf of, all of
the parties hereto.

            8.10  CONSTRUCTION. This Agreement shall be construed and enforced
in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, excluding the conflicts of
law principles thereof.

            8.11  MEDIATION AND ARBITRATION. The parties agree that all
disputes, controversies or claims that may arise between them which relate to
this Agreement, including, without limitation, any dispute, controversy or
claim as to the interpretation or enforcement of any of the provisions of
this Agreement, shall be submitted first to mediation and then to binding
arbitration in the city of San Antonio, Texas in accordance with the rules of
the American Arbitration Association and judgment upon the award rendered by
the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

                  (1)   MEDIATION. If a controversy or claim arises between the
parties then that controversy or claim will be mediated within one month of its
identification by the parties.

                  (2)   BINDING ARBITRATION. In the event that the parties
cannot resolve their dispute by mediation within one month, the parties then
agree to bring the dispute to binding arbitration within one month of the
conclusion of the mediation.

      IN WITNESS WHEREOF, each of the parties hereto has executed this
Agreement, or has caused this Agreement to be duly executed and delivered in its
name on its behalf, all as of the day and year first above written.
