(B) PIGGYBACK REGISTRATION. If the Company shall determine to register for sale for cash any of its Common Stock, for its own account or for the account of others (other than the Holders), other than (i) a registration relating solely to employee benefit plans or securities issued or issuable to employees, consultants (to the extent the securities owned or to be owned by such consultants could be registered on Form S-8) or any of their Family Members (including a registration on Form S-8) or (ii) a registration relating solely to a Commission Rule 145 transaction, a registration on Form S-4 in connection with a merger, acquisition, divestiture, reorganization, or similar event, the Company shall promptly give to the Holders written notice thereof (and in no event shall such notice be given less than 20 calendar days prior to the filing of such registration statement), and shall, subject to Section 3(c) hereof, include as a Piggyback Registration all of the Registrable Securities specified in a written request delivered by the Holder within 10 calendar days after receipt of such written notice from the Company. However, the Company may, without the consent of the Holders, withdraw such registration statement prior to its becoming effective if the Company or such other stockholders have elected to abandon the proposal to register the securities proposed to be registered thereby. (C) UNDERWRITING. If a Piggyback Registration is for a registered public offering involving an underwriting, the Company shall so advise the Holders. In such event, the right of any Holder to Piggyback Registration shall be conditioned upon such Holder's participation in such underwriting and the inclusion of such Holder's Registrable Securities in the underwriting to the extent provided herein. All Holders proposing to include the Registrable Securities they hold through such underwriting shall (together with the Company and any other stockholders of the Company selling their securities through such underwriting) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the underwriter selected for such underwriting by the Company or the selling stockholders, as applicable. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, if the underwriter or the Company determines that marketing factors require a limitation of the number of shares of Common Stock or the amount of other securities to be underwritten, the underwriter may exclude some or all Registrable Securities from such registration and underwriting. The Company shall so advise all Holders (except those Holders who failed to timely elect to include their Registrable Securities through such underwriting or have indicated to the Company their decision not to do so), and indicate to each such Holder the number of shares of Registrable Securities that may be included in the registration and underwriting, if any. The number of shares of Registrable Securities to be included in such registration and underwriting shall be allocated among such Holders as follows: (i) In the event of a Piggyback Registration that is initiated by the Company, the number of shares that may be included in the registration and underwriting shall be allocated first to the Company and then, subject to obligations and commitments existing as of the date hereof, to all selling stockholders, including the Holders, who have requested to sell in the registration on a pro rata basis according to the number of shares requested to be included; and (ii) In the event of a Piggyback Registration that is initiated by the exercise of demand registration rights by a stockholder or stockholders of the Company (other than the Holders), then the number of shares that may be included in the registration and underwriting shall be allocated first to such selling stockholders who exercised such demand and then, subject to obligations and commitments existing as of the date hereof, to all other selling stockholders, including the Holders, who have requested to sell in the registration, on a pro rata basis according to the number of shares requested to be included. <PAGE> No Registrable Securities excluded from the underwriting by reason of the underwriter's marketing limitation shall be included in such registration. If any Holder disapproves of the terms of any such underwriting, such Holder may elect to withdraw their Registrable Securities therefrom by delivery of written notice to the Company and the underwriter. The Registrable Securities so withdrawn from such underwriting shall also be withdrawn from such registration; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if by the withdrawal of such Registrable Securities a greater number of Registrable Securities held by other Holders may be included in such registration (up to the maximum of any limitation imposed by the underwriters), then the Company shall offer to all Holders who have included Registrable Securities in the registration the right to include additional Registrable Securities pursuant to the terms and limitations set forth herein in the same proportion used above in determining the underwriter limitation. (D) OTHER REGISTRATIONS. Prior to the SEC Effective Date, the Company will not, without the prior written consent of the Majority Holders, file or request the acceleration of any other registration statement filed with the Commission, and during any time subsequent to the SEC Effective Date when the Registration Statement for any reason is not available for use by any Holder for the resale of any Registrable Securities, the Company shall not, without the prior written consent of the Majority Holders, file any other registration statement or any amendment thereto with the Commission under the Securities Act or request the acceleration of the effectiveness of any other registration statement previously filed with the Commission, other than (i) any registration statement on Form S-8 or Form S-4 and (ii) any registration statement or amendment which the Company is required to file or as to which the Company is required to request acceleration pursuant to any obligation in effect on the date of execution and delivery of this Agreement. (E) OCCURRENCE OF REGISTRATION EVENT. If a Registration Event occurs, then the Company will make payments to each Purchaser (a "Qualified Purchaser"), as partial liquidated damages for the minimum amount of damages to the Qualified Purchaser by reason thereof, and not as a penalty, at a rate equal to 1% of the Purchase Price per share of Registrable Securities then held by a Qualified Purchaser, for each calendar month of the Registration Default Period (pro rated for any period less than 30 days), up to a maximum, together with all payments made by the Company to such Purchaser pursuant to this Section 3(e), of 10% of the total purchase price of the Units purchased by such Purchaser; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, if a Registration Event occurs (or is continuing) on a date more than one-year after the Qualified Purchaser acquired the Registrable Securities (and thus the one-year holding period under Rule 144(d) has elapsed), liquidated damages shall be paid only with respect to that portion of the Qualified Purchaser's Registrable Securities that cannot then be immediately resold in reliance on Rule 144. Each such payment shall be due and payable within ten days after the end of each calendar month of the Registration Default Period until the termination of the Registration Default Period and within ten days after such termination. Such payments shall constitute the Qualified Purchaser's exclusive remedy for such events. The Registration Default Period shall terminate upon (i) the filing of the Registration Statement in the case of clause (a) of the definition of Registration Event, (ii) the SEC Effective Date in the case of clause (b) of the definition of Registration Event, (iii) the ability of the Qualified Purchaser to effect sales pursuant to the Registration Statement in the case of clause (c) of the definition of Registration Event, (iv) the listing or inclusion and/or trading of the Common Stock on an Approved Market, as the case may be, in the case of clause (d) of the definition of Registration Event, and (v) in the case of the events described in clauses (b) and (c) of the definition of Registration Event, the earlier termination of the Registration Default Period. The amounts payable as partial liquidated damages pursuant to this paragraph shall be payable (i) in lawful money of the United States or, (ii) at the Company's sole election, in shares of Common Stock, which such shares shall be issued at the then current market price at the time payment becomes due. Amounts payable as liquidated damages to each Qualified Purchaser hereunder with respect to each share of Registrable Securities shall cease when the Qualified Purchaser no longer holds such shares of <PAGE> Registrable Securities or such shares of Registrable Securities can be immediately sold by the Qualified Purchaser in reliance on Rule 144(k). 4. REGISTRATION PROCEDURES. The Company will keep each Holder reasonably advised as to the filing and effectiveness of the Registration Statement. At its expense with respect to the Registration Statement, the Company will: (A) prepare and file with the Commission with respect to the Registrable Securities, a registration statement on Form SB-2, or any other form for which the Company then qualifies or which counsel for the Company shall deem appropriate and which form shall be available for the sale of the Registrable Securities in accordance with the intended methods of distribution thereof, and use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause such registration statement to become and remain effective at for a period of two years or for such shorter period ending on the earlier to occur of (i) the sale of all Registrable Securities and (ii) the availability under Rule 144(k) for the Holder to sell the Registrable Securities (in either case, the "Effectiveness Period"); (B) if a registration statement is subject to review by the Commission, promptly respond to all comments and diligently pursue resolution of any comments to the satisfaction of the Commission; (C) prepare and file with the Commission such amendments and supplements to such registration statement and the prospectus used in connection therewith as may be necessary to keep such registration statement effective during the Effectiveness Period;

(E) use its commercially reasonable best efforts to register or qualify such registration under such other applicable securities or blue sky laws of such jurisdictions as any Holder of Registrable Securities covered by such registration statement reasonably requests and as may be necessary for the marketability of the Registrable Securities (such request to be made by the time the applicable registration statement is deemed effective by the Commission) and do any and all other acts and things necessary to enable such Holder to consummate the disposition in such jurisdictions of the Registrable Securities owned by such Holder; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the Company shall not be required to (i) qualify generally to do business in any jurisdiction where it would not otherwise be required to qualify but for this paragraph, (ii) subject itself to taxation in any such jurisdiction, or (iii) consent to general service of process in any such jurisdiction; (F) as promptly as practicable after becoming aware of such event, notify each Holder of Registrable Securities, the disposition of which requires delivery of a prospectus relating thereto under the Securities Act, of the happening of any event, which comes to the Company's attention, that will after the occurrence of such event cause the prospectus included in such registration statement, if not amended or supplemented, to contain an untrue statement of a material fact or an omission to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading and the Company shall promptly thereafter prepare and furnish to such Holder a supplement or amendment to such prospectus (or prepare and file appropriate reports under the Exchange Act) so that, as thereafter delivered <PAGE> to the purchasers of such Registrable Securities, such prospectus shall not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, unless suspension of the use of such prospectus otherwise is authorized herein or in the event of a Blackout Period, in which case no supplement or amendment need be furnished (or Exchange Act filing made) until the termination of such suspension or Blackout Period;

(L) during the Effectiveness Period, refrain from bidding for or purchasing any Common Stock or any right to purchase Common Stock or attempting to induce any person to purchase any such security or right if such bid, purchase or attempt would in any way limit the right of the Holders to sell Registrable Securities by reason of the limitations set forth in Regulation M under the Exchange Act; and (M) take all other reasonable actions necessary to expedite and facilitate the disposition by the Holders of the Registrable Securities pursuant to the Registration Statement. 5.

Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of the Holders, or any such director, officer, partner, underwriter or controlling person and shall survive the transfer of such shares by the Holder. <PAGE> (B) As a condition to including Registrable Securities in any registration statement filed pursuant to this Agreement, each Holder agrees to be bound by the terms of this Section 9 and to indemnify and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the Company, its directors and officers, and each other person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act, against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which the Company or any such director or officer or controlling person may become subject under the Securities Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions or proceedings, whether commenced or threatened, in respect thereof) that arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement in or omission from such registration statement, any such preliminary prospectus, final prospectus, summary prospectus, amendment or supplement in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Holder through an instrument duly executed by or on behalf of the Company specifically stating that it is for use in the preparation thereof, and such Holder shall reimburse the Company, and each such director, officer, and controlling person for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating, defending, or settling and such loss, claim, damage, liability, action, or proceeding; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that such indemnity agreement found in this Section 9 shall in no event exceed the gross proceeds from the offering received by such Holder. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect, regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of the Company or any such director, officer or controlling person and shall survive the transfer by any Holder of such shares. (C) Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party of notice of the commencement of any action or proceeding involving a claim referred to in this Section (including any governmental action), such indemnified party shall, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against an indemnifying party, give written notice to the indemnifying party of the commencement of such action; provided that the failure of any indemnified party to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this Section, except to the extent that the indemnifying party is actually prejudiced by such failure to give notice. In case any such action is brought against an indemnified party, unless in the reasonable judgment of counsel to such indemnified party a conflict of interest between such indemnified and indemnifying parties may exist or the indemnified party may have defenses not available to the indemnifying party in respect of such claim, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate in and to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party and, after notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to assume the defense thereof, the indemnifying party shall not be liable to such indemnified party for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by the latter in connection with the defense thereof, unless in such indemnified party's reasonable judgment a conflict of interest between such indemnified and indemnifying parties arises in respect of such claim after the assumption of the defenses thereof or the indemnifying party fails to defend such claim in a diligent manner, other than reasonable costs of investigation. Neither an indemnified nor an indemnifying party shall be liable for any settlement of any action or proceeding effected without its consent. No indemnifying party shall, without the consent of the indemnified party, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement, which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such indemnified party of a release from all liability in respect of such claim or litigation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, and without limiting any of the rights set forth above, in any event any party shall have the right to retain, at its own expense, counsel with respect to the defense of a claim. (D) In the event that an indemnifying party does or is not permitted to assume the defense of an action pursuant to Section 9(c) hereof or in the case of the expense reimbursement obligation set forth in Sections 9(a) and (b) hereof, the indemnification required by Sections 9(a) and (b) hereof shall be made by periodic payments of the amount thereof during the course of the investigation or defense, as and when bills received or expenses, losses, damages, or liabilities are incurred. <PAGE> (E) If the indemnification provided for in this Section is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unavailable to an indemnified party with respect to any loss, liability, claim, damage or expense referred to herein, the indemnifying party, in lieu of indemnifying such indemnified party hereunder, shall (i) contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of such loss, liability, claim, damage or expense as is appropriate to reflect the proportionate relative fault of the indemnifying party on the one hand and the indemnified party on the other (determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission relates to information supplied by the indemnifying party or the indemnified party and the parties' relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such untrue statement or omission), or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (i) above is not permitted by applicable law or provides a lesser sum to the indemnified party than the amount hereinafter calculated, not only the proportionate relative fault of the indemnifying party and the indemnified party, but also the relative benefits received by the indemnifying party on the one hand and the indemnified party on the other, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.
