Upon the written request of the Investor given within ten (10) days after receipt of such written notice from the Company in accordance with Section 13, the Company shall, subject to the provisions of Section 6 (in the case of an underwritten offering), use all reasonable efforts to cause to be registered under the 1933 Act all of the Registrable Securities that the Investor has requested to be registered. 3. Obligations of the Company. Whenever required under this Agreement to -------------------------- effect the registration of any Registrable Securities, the Company shall, as expeditiously as reasonably possible: 2 <PAGE> (a) Prepare and file with the SEC a registration statement on proper form with respect to such Registrable Securities and use all reasonable efforts to cause such registration statement to become effective, and upon written request of the Investor, keep such registration statement effective for up to 90 days, or, if earlier, until the distribution contemplated by such registration statement has been completed; (b) Prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements to such registration statement and the prospectus used in connection with such registration statement as may be necessary to comply with the provisions of the 1933 Act with respect to the disposition of all securities covered by such registration statement in accordance with the participating sellers' intended method of distribution set forth in such registration statement; (c) Furnish to the Investor such number of copies of the registration statement and the prospectus included therein, including each preliminary prospectus, in conformity with the requirements of the 1933 Act, and such other documents as it may reasonably request in order to facilitate the disposition of Registrable Securities owned by it covered by such registration statement; (d) Use its best efforts to register and qualify the Registrable Securities covered by such registration statement under the securities laws of such jurisdictions as the Investor, or in the case of an underwritten offering, the managing underwriter, shall reasonably request, provided that the Company shall not be required in connection therewith or as a condition thereto to qualify to do business or to file a general consent to service of process in any such jurisdiction, and further provided that if, under applicable blue sky laws, any jurisdiction in which the Registrable Securities shall be qualified shall require that expenses incurred in connection with the qualification of the Registrable Securities in that jurisdiction be borne by the Investor and provided there is no exemption from such requirement by reason of the Company's obligation to pay such expenses pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 3, and if the Investor does not agree to pay such expenses to the extent required by such jurisdiction, the Company shall have no obligation hereunder or otherwise to register and qualify the Registrable Securities covered by such registration statement in such jurisdiction; (e) In the event of any underwritten public offering, enter into and perform its obligations under an underwriting agreement with terms generally satisfactory to the managing underwriter of such offering. The Investor shall also enter into and perform its obligations under such an agreement; provided, however, that such agreement is in usual and customary form; (f) Promptly notify the Investor of the happening of any event as a result of which the prospectus included in a registration statement registering the Investor's Registrable Securities hereunder, as then in effect, includes an untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact required to be stated therein or 3 <PAGE> necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in the light of the circumstances in which they were made; (g) Use all reasonable efforts to cause all Registrable Securities registered pursuant hereunder to be listed on each securities exchange on which similar securities issued by the Company are then listed; (h) Make available for inspection at the Company during its normal business hours by the Investor or any attorney, accountant or other agent retained by the Investor all pertinent, non-confidential financial and other records of the Company as may be reasonably requested by the Investor; (i) If a "cold comfort" letter from the Company's independent public accountants is obtained in connection with a registration of Registrable Securities and such letter is addressed to any selling stockholder in such registration, use all reasonable efforts to cause such letter to be addressed to the Investor; (j) If a legal opinion from counsel for the Company is obtained in connection with a registration of Registrable Securities and such opinion is addressed to any selling stockholder in such registration, use all reasonable efforts to cause such opinion to be addressed to the Investor; (k) Provide a transfer agent or registrar for all Registrable Securities registered pursuant hereunder and a CUSIP number for all such Registrable Securities; and (l) Use all reasonable efforts to make available the executive officers of the Company to participate with the underwriters in any underwritten public offering in any "road shows" that may be reasonably requested by such underwriters. 4. Furnish Information. It shall be a condition precedent to the obligations ------------------- of the Company to take any action pursuant to this Agreement that the Investor shall furnish to the Company such information regarding itself, the Registrable Securities held by it, and the intended method of disposition of such securities as shall be required to effect the registration of its Registrable Securities. In that connection, the Investor shall be required to represent to the Company that all such information which is given is both complete and accurate in all material respects as of that date. 5. Expenses of Registration. All Registration Expenses incurred in connection ------------------------ with any registration, qualification or compliance pursuant to this Agreement shall be borne by the Company, and all Selling Expenses shall be borne by the Investor; provided, however, that if the Investor voluntarily withdraws from a registration in which it requested to include its Registrable Securities pursuant to Section 2 hereof, the Registration Expenses actually incurred by the Company as a result of the Investor's request to participate in such registration, including the fees and disbursements of primary counsel to the Investor (without regard to the $25,000 limit described in Section 1(d) above), shall be borne by the Investor, provided the Company provides written substantiation of any such expenses incurred by the Company to the Investor. 4 <PAGE> 6. Underwriting Requirements. The right of the Investor to "piggyback" in an ------------------------- underwritten public offering of the Company's securities pursuant to Section 2 shall be conditioned upon the Investor's participation in such underwriting in accordance with the terms hereof and the inclusion of the Investor's Registrable Securities in the underwriting to the extent provided herein. The Investor shall (together with the Company and any other stockholders distributing their securities through such underwriting) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the underwriter or underwriters selected for underwriting by the Company. Notwithstanding any other provision of Section 2 and this Section 6, if the underwriter determines that marketing factors require a limitation of the number of shares to be underwritten, the underwriter may exclude some or all of the Registrable Securities from such registration and underwriting, provided that the Investor is allowed to participate in the offering in the same proportion (based on the total number of securities to be registered in such offering) as any other stockholder of the Company (i) participating in such offering and (ii) having registration rights on parity with the Investor; provided, however, that nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to limit the Company's ability to grant registration rights on parity with or senior to those rights of the Investor contained herein. If the Investor disapproves of the terms of any such underwriting, it may elect to withdraw therefrom by written notice to the Company. Any Registrable Securities excluded or withdrawn from such underwriting in accordance herewith shall be withdrawn from such registration. 7. Delay of Registration. The Investor shall not have any right to obtain or --------------------- seek an injunction restraining or otherwise delaying any such registration as the result of any controversy that might arise with respect to the interpretation or implementation of this Agreement. 8. Indemnification. If any Registrable Securities are included in a --------------- registration statement under this Agreement: (a) To the extent permitted by law, the Company will indemnify and hold harmless the Investor, its Affiliates and their respective officers and directors, and each person, if any, who controls the Investor within the meaning of the 1933 Act or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "1934 Act"), against any losses, claims, damages, or liabilities (joint or several) to which they or any of them may become subject under the 1933 Act, the 1934 Act or any other federal or state law or any rule or regulation promulgated thereunder, insofar as such losses, claims, damages, or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise from or are based upon any of the following statements, omissions or violations (collectively a "Violation"): (i) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in such registration statement, including any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein or any amendments or supplements thereto; (ii) the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein, or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading; or (iii) any violation or alleged violation by the Company of the 1933 Act, the 1934 Act, any state securities law or any rule or regulation promulgated under the 1933 Act, the 1934 Act or any state securities law; and the Company will reimburse the Investor, its Affiliates and their respective officers, 5 <PAGE> directors and controlling persons for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability, or action; provided, however, that the indemnity agreement contained in this Section 8 shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Company (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), nor shall the Company be liable in any such case for any such loss, claim, damage, liability, or action to the extent that it arises from or is based upon a violation which occurs in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished expressly for use in connection with such registration by the Investor, its Affiliates and their respective officers, directors or controlling persons. (b) To the extent permitted by law, the Investor will indemnify and hold harmless the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers who have signed the registration statement, each person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of the 1933 Act, any underwriter (within the meaning of the 1933 Act) for the Company, any person who controls such underwriter, against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities (joint or several) to which the Company or any such director, officer, controlling person, or underwriter may become subject, under the 1933 Act, the 1934 Act or any other federal or state law or any rule or regulation promulgated thereunder, insofar as such losses, claims, damages, or liabilities (or actions in respect thereto) arise from or are based upon any Violation, in each case to the extent that such Violation occurs in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished by the Investor expressly for use in connection with such registration; and the Investor will reimburse any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by the Company or any such director, officer, controlling person, underwriter or controlling person, in connection with investigation or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability, or action; provided, however, that the indemnity agreement contained in this Section 8 shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any such loss, claim damage, liability or action if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Investor, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld; provided, further, that the Investor shall not be liable under this Section 8(b) for any amount in excess of the net proceeds received by the Investor in the registered offering out of which such loss, claim, damage, liability or action arises. (c) In order to provide for just and equitable contribution in circumstances in which the indemnification provided for in this Section 8 is applicable but for any reason is held to be unavailable from the Company or the Investor, the Company and the Investor shall contribute to the aggregate losses, claims, damages and liabilities (including any investigation, legal and other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with, and any amount paid in settlement of, any action, suit or proceeding or any claims asserted) to which the Company and the Investor may be subject in such proportion so that the Investor is responsible for that portion of the foregoing amount represented by the ratio of the net proceeds received by the Investor in the offering out of which liability arises to the total proceeds received 6 <PAGE> from the offering out of which liability arises by the Company and all selling stockholders (other than the Investor) and the Company shall be responsible for the portion represented by the ratio of proceeds received by the Company to the total proceeds received by the Company and all selling stockholders (other than the Investor); provided, however, that no person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the 1933 Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. For purposes of this Section 8(c), each person, if any, who controls the Company or the Investor within the meaning of the 1933 Act or the 1934 Act, each officer of the Company who shall have signed the registration statement and each director of the Company shall have the same rights to contribution as the Company as calculated herein. (d) No settlement shall be effected without the prior written consent of the Investor unless (i) all claims and actions against the Investor, its Affiliates and their respective directors and officers and each person who controls the Investor within the meaning of 1933 Act or the 1934 Act are extinguished by the settlement and the indemnifying party obtains a full release of all claims and actions against the Investor, its Affiliates and their respective directors and officers and control persons, which release shall be to the reasonable satisfaction of the Investor. (e) Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under this Section 8 of notice of the commencement of any action (including any governmental action), such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against any indemnifying party under this Section 8, notify the indemnifying party in writing of the commencement thereof and the indemnifying party shall have the right to participate in, and, to the extent the indemnifying party so desires, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly noticed, to assume the defense thereof with counsel mutually satisfactory to the parties; provided, however, that an indemnified party shall have the right to select and retain one separate counsel, with the reasonable fees and expenses to be paid by the indemnifying party, to the extent that representation of such indemnified party by the counsel retained by the indemnifying party would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between such indemnified party and any other party represented by such counsel in such proceeding. The failure to notify an indemnifying party within a reasonable time of the commencement of any such action, solely to the extent materially prejudicial to its ability to defend such action, shall relieve such indemnifying party of any liability to the indemnified party under this Section 8, but the omission so to notify the indemnifying party will not relieve it of any liability that it may have to any indemnified party otherwise than under this Section 8. (f) The obligations of the Company and the Investor under this Section 8 shall survive termination of this Agreement and the completion of any offering of Registrable Securities in a registration statement made under the terms of this Agreement and otherwise. 7 <PAGE> 9. Assignment of Registration Rights. The rights to cause the Company to --------------------------------- register Registrable Securities pursuant to this Agreement may not be assigned by the Investor, except to an Affiliate of the Investor, provided that such Affiliate agrees in writing to be bound by the obligations of the Investor contained herein. 10.
