§4.

Right of First Offer to Purchase Shares.

 (a)

Notice.  If, at any time after the date hereof and prior to the APT Date, any Stockholder or group of Stockholders (as used in this §4, collectively, the “Selling Stockholder”) desires to sell (other than in a transfer permitted under §3) any or all of its or his shares of Common Stock (each, a “Proposed Sale”), the Selling Stockholder shall promptly notify in writing the Company and each of the other Stockholders (the “Offeree Stockholders”) of the total number of shares of Common Stock that the Selling Stockholder desires to sell, the proposed purchase price per share and all other material terms and conditions of such proposed sale (the “Seller’s Notice”).  The Selling Stockholder may, for purposes of determining the recipients of the Seller’s Notice, rely upon a list of securityholders provided by the Company (which the Company shall provide to any requesting Stockholder promptly upon request).  The Seller’s Notice shall contain an irrevocable offer to sell to the Offeree Stockholders in the manner set forth in this §4(a) such number of shares of Common Stock (the “Offered Securities”), at a purchase price equal to the price (the “Offer Price”) and on the other terms and conditions set forth in the Seller’s Notice.

(b)

Option to Purchase.  Upon receipt of the Seller’s Notice, the Offeree Stockholders shall have the irrevocable and exclusive option to buy all, but not less than all, of the Offered Securities for cash at the Offer Price on the terms and subject to the conditions of §4(c).

(c)

Offeree Stockholder’s Proportionate Share.

(a)

Promptly upon receipt of the Seller’s Notice (but in no event later than five (5) business days thereafter), the Company shall deliver to each Offeree Stockholder a notice (the “Initial Company Notice”) stating the number of Offered Securities that such Offeree Stockholder would have the option to purchase under §4(c), which number shall in each case be calculated as the product of (A) the number of Offered Securities, times (B) a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock owned by such Offeree Stockholder and the denominator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock owned by all Offeree Stockholders (the “Proportionate Share”).  Within ten (10) business days after receipt of the Initial Company Notice, each Offeree Stockholder who elects to participate shall deliver to the Company a written notice stating its or his election to participate and the maximum number of shares (up to all the Offered Securities) that it or he is willing to purchase, and such notice shall constitute an irrevocable commitment to purchase such shares, if any, as are allocated to such Offeree Stockholder pursuant to §4(c), up to such maximum number of shares.

(ii)

To the extent that any Offeree Stockholder has indicated that it or he will not fully subscribe for its or his Proportionate Share of the Offered Securities, the Company shall allocate all such shares not subscribed for to the Offeree Stockholders who have subscribed for more shares than their Proportionate Share (the “Fully Participating Stockholders”) in the proportion that the number of shares of Common Stock each owns bears to the total number of shares of Common Stock owned by all such Fully Participating Stockholders.  If the number of shares so allocated to a Fully Participating Stockholder exceeds the maximum number of shares that it or he has indicated in its or his notice to the Company it or he is willing to subscribe for, then the Company shall allocate any excess over such maximum among all Fully Participating Stockholders who have subscribed for a maximum number of shares which exceeds the number of shares allocated to them pursuant to the preceding sentence, in the proportion that their respective holdings bear to the total number of shares of Common Stock owned by all such Stockholders, and the Company shall follow this procedure, if necessary, until all shares available for purchase by the Offeree Stockholders have been allocated to them.

(iii)

If all of the Offered Securities have not been subscribed for (the “Excess Shares”) pursuant to the procedures set forth in §4(c)(ii), then within thirteen (13) business days after the date of the Initial Closing Notice the Company shall deliver to each Offeree Stockholder a notice stating that all of the Offered Securities have not been subscribed for and the additional number of Offered Securities that such Offeree Stockholder will have the option to purchase under this §4(c)(iii), which number shall in each case be calculated as the product of (A) the number of Excess Shares, times (B) a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock owned by such Offeree Stockholder and the denominator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock owned by all Offeree Stockholders.  If the number of Excess Shares so allocated to an Offeree Stockholder exceeds the maximum number of Excess Shares that it or he has indicated in its or his notice to the Company it or he is willing to subscribe for, then the Company shall allocate any excess over such maximum among all Offeree Stockholders who have subscribed for a maximum number of Excess Shares which exceeds the number of Excess Shares allocated to them pursuant to the preceding sentence, in the proportion that their respective holdings bear to the total number of shares of Common Stock owned by all such Stockholders, and the Company shall follow this procedure, if necessary, until all shares available for purchase by the Offeree Stockholders have been allocated to them.  If, following the completion of the procedures set forth in this clause (iii), all of the Offered Securities have not been subscribed for, then the Selling Stockholder shall have the rights set forth in §4(e).

(d)

Final Allocations.  The Company shall, within thirty (30) days after the Seller’s Notice, notify the Selling Stockholder and each Offeree Stockholder in writing concerning the final allocation of the Offered Securities subject to options pursuant to §4(c) (the “Final Company Notice”).  Such notice to the Selling Stockholder shall be deemed the irrevocable exercise of such options on behalf of each purchaser named therein.

(e)

Seller’s Rights to Transfer.  If the Seller’s Notice shall be duly given, and if the option to purchase the Offered Securities at the Offered Price as provided in §4(c) shall not have been exercised, or if the amount of Offered Securities with respect to which all options have been exercised is less than the total amount of Offered Securities, then, subject to §5, the Selling Stockholder shall be free, for a period of ninety (90) days from the earlier of (i) the 30th day following the date of the Seller’s Notice, and (ii) the date the Selling Stockholder shall have received written notice from the Company stating the intention of the Offeree Stockholders not to exercise the options granted under §4 (such earlier date being the “Release Date”), to offer to sell the Offered Securities to any proposed transferee, as long as the Offered Securities so sold are sold at a price equal to or greater than the Offered Price and on substantially the same terms and conditions as set forth in the Seller’s Notice; provided, that no such Transfer shall be effective until the transferee has delivered to the Company a written acknowledgment and agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Company that the Offered Securities to be received by such transferee are subject to all the provisions of this Agreement and that such transferee is bound hereby and a party hereto as a Stockholder.

(f)

Closing Date.  In the case of the purchase by the Offeree Stockholders of the Offered Securities pursuant to this §4, the parties to such purchase shall close such transaction on the 30th day after the later of the date the Final Company Notice is received and the date of receipt of any required regulatory approvals (and if such day is not a business day, then the following business day) at the principal executive office of the Company, or at such other place or time as the parties may agree.  If all such Offered Securities are not duly purchased by the Offeree Stockholders, the Selling Stockholder shall not be obligated to sell any of such Offered Securities to the Offeree Stockholders and the provisions of §4(e) shall apply in respect of such Offered Securities.

(g)

Exceptions.  The provisions of this §4 shall not apply to the following:

(i)

Any Transfer of Common Stock pursuant to §3 or §6; or

(ii)

Any Transfer of shares of Common Stock by a Tag-Along Offeree pursuant to §5.

§5.

Tag-Along” Right.

(a)

In the event that any holder of ten percent (10%) or more of the then outstanding shares of Common Stock (as used in this §5, a “Selling Stockholder”) proposes to sell for cash or any other consideration shares of Common Stock owned by such Selling Stockholder to any Person or group of Persons (a “Proposed Purchaser”), after expiration of the periods in §§4(c) and (d), if applicable, such Selling Stockholder shall promptly notify each other Stockholder (collectively, the “Tag-Along Offerees”) in writing (a “Tag-Along Notice”) of such proposed sale (a “Proposed Sale”) and the material terms of the Proposed Sale as of the date of the Tag-Along Notice (the “Material Terms”).  The Selling Stockholder may, for purposes of determining the recipients of the Tag-Along Notice, rely upon a list of securityholders provided by the Company (which the Company shall provide to the Selling Stockholder promptly upon request).  If within fifteen (15) days after the receipt by the Tag-Along Offerees of the Tag-Along Notice, the Selling Stockholder receives a written request (a “Tag-Along Request”) to include shares of Common Stock (the “Tag-Along Securities”) held by one or more Tag-Along Offerees in the Proposed Sale, the Tag-Along Securities so held by such Tag-Along Offerees shall be so included as provided herein so long as the Tag-Along Securities are eligible for resale under an exemption from registration, and the Selling Stockholder shall not be permitted to complete such Proposed Sale unless such Tag-Along Securities are so included in such Transfer; provided, however, that any Tag-Along Request shall be irrevocable unless (i) there shall be an adverse change in the Material Terms or (ii) otherwise mutually agreed to in writing by such Tag-Along Offerees and the Selling Stockholder.  

(b)

The number of Tag-Along Securities that each Tag-Along Offeree shall be permitted to include in a Proposed Sale pursuant to a Tag-Along Request shall be the product of (i) the number of Tag-Along Securities then held by such Tag-Along Offeree multiplied by (ii) a fraction, (A) the numerator of which is the number of shares of Common Stock that the Selling Stockholder proposes to sell in the Proposed Sale, and (B) the denominator of which is  the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding as of such date held by the Selling Stockholder and all Tag-Along Offerees.

(c)

Except as may otherwise be provided herein, the Tag-Along Securities shall be included in a Proposed Sale pursuant hereto and to any agreements with the Proposed Purchaser relating thereto, on the same terms and subject to the same conditions applicable to the holders of the same type of securities included in the Proposed Sale.  Such terms and conditions shall include, without limitation, (i) the sale consideration, (ii) the payment of fees, commissions and expenses and (iii) the provision of, and representation and warranty as to, information requested of the Selling Stockholder; and provided further, that neither Phronesis nor any Stockholder that beneficially owns less than 10% of the Fully Diluted Common Stock shall be required to make any representation or warranty other than with respect to such holder’s ownership of the Securities to be sold in the proposed sale.  

(d)

Upon delivering a Tag-Along Request, each Tag-Along Offeree will, if requested by the Selling Stockholder, execute and deliver a custody agreement and power of attorney in form and substance satisfactory to the Selling Stockholder (a “Custody Agreement and Power of Attorney”) with respect to the Tag-Along Securities that are to be included in the Proposed Sale pursuant hereto.  The Custody Agreement and Power of Attorney shall provide that the Tag-Along Offeree shall deliver to and deposit in custody with the custodian and attorney-in-fact named therein a certificate or certificates representing such Tag-Along Securities (duly endorsed in blank by the registered owner or owners thereof or accompanied by duly executed stock powers in blank) and irrevocably appoint said custodian and attorney-in-fact as such Tag-Along Offeree’s agent and attorney-in-fact with full power and authority to act under a custody agreement and power of attorney on behalf of the such Tag-Along Offeree with respect to the matters specified herein.  Notwithstanding the provisions of this §5(d), a Tag-Along Offeree may, at its option and in lieu of delivering a Custody Agreement and Power of Attorney, deliver to the Selling Stockholder such other assurance as may be reasonably acceptable to the Selling Stockholder of such Tag-Along Offeree’s ability to complete the Proposed Sale on the date selected by the Selling Stockholder for completion hereof.

(e)

Each Tag-Along Offeree agrees that such Tag-Along Offeree will execute such other agreements as the Selling Stockholder may reasonably request in connection with the consummation of a Proposed Sale and Tag-Along Request and the transactions contemplated thereby.

(f)

The provisions of this §5 shall not apply to the following:

(i)

Any Transfer of Common Stock pursuant to §3; and

(ii)

Any Transfer of Common Stock after the APT Date.

(g)

Notwithstanding any other provision of this §5, no Transfer made pursuant to this §5 shall be effective until the transferee has delivered to the Company a written acknowledgment and agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Company that the Tag-Along Securities to be received by such transferee are subject to all the provisions of this Agreement and that such transferee is bound hereby and a party hereto as a Stockholder.

§6.

(b)

On the Drag-Along Sale Date, each Stockholder shall deliver a certificate or certificates for such Stockholder’s shares of Common Stock, duly endorsed for transfer with signatures guaranteed, to such Proposed Purchaser in the manner and at the address indicated in the Drag-Along Notice against delivery of the purchase price for such shares of Common Stock.  The provisions of this §6 shall apply regardless of the form of consideration in the Drag-Along Sale.

(c)

Shares of Common Stock subject to a Drag-Along Right shall be included in a Drag-Along Sale pursuant hereto and to any agreements with the Proposed Purchaser relating thereto, on the same terms and subject to the same conditions applicable to shares of Common Stock included in the Drag-Along Sale.  Such terms and conditions shall include, without limitation, (i) the consideration (including, without limitation, any consideration payable under employment, consulting, non-competition, confidentiality and other similar agreements and arrangements), (ii) the payment of fees, commissions and expenses, (iii) the provision of, and representation and warranty as to, information requested of the Company, and (iv) the provision of reasonable indemnification, as determined by the Board; provided, however, that any indemnification provided by the Stockholders shall (i) be determined pro rata in proportion with the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock to be sold in the Drag-Along Sale and (ii) not be structured in a way so as to require additional contributions from any Stockholder.

(d)

Each of the Stockholders shall, if requested by the Company, execute and deliver a Custody Agreement and Power of Attorney in form and substance satisfactory to the Company with respect to the shares of Common Stock which are to be included in the Drag-Along Sale pursuant hereto.  The Custody Agreement and Power of Attorney shall provide that the Stockholder will deliver to and deposit in custody with the custodian and attorney-in-fact named therein a certificate or certificates representing such shares of Common Stock (duly endorsed in blank by the registered owner or owners thereof or accompanied by duly executed stock powers in blank) and irrevocably appoint said custodian and attorney-in-fact as such Stockholder’s agent and attorney-in-fact with full power and authority to act under a custody agreement and power of attorney on behalf of the such Stockholder with respect to the matters specified herein.

Preemptive Rights.  

(a)

Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, for so long as shares of Common Stock are not Actively Publicly Traded, the Company shall not, after the date hereof, issue any (a) capital stock of the Company, (b) securities convertible or exchangeable for capital stock of the Company (“Convertible Securities”) or (c) options, warrants or rights carrying any rights to purchase capital stock of the Company (the securities described in clauses (a)-(c) are referred to herein collectively as the “Participation Securities”), without offering to each Stockholder (collectively, the “Preemptive Holders”), the right to purchase or subscribe for up to that number of additional Participation Securities (a “Pro Rata Share”) which represents the product of (i) the total number of Participation Securities to be issued by the Company multiplied by (ii) a fraction, (A) the numerator of which is the number of shares of Common Stock owned by such Preemptive Holder, and (B) the denominator of which is the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such issuance held by all Preemptive Holders and all other Persons that have similar pre-emptive rights (it being understood and agreed that the Company will accordingly be required to reduce the number of shares of Participation Securities to be issued or sold to Persons other than the Preemptive Holders); provided that the provisions of this §7 shall not apply to any Exempt Issuance.  

(b)

In the event the Company proposes to issue or sell any Participation Securities in a transaction giving rise to the preemptive rights provided for in this §7, the Company shall send a written notice (the “Preemptive Notice”) to each Preemptive Holder setting forth the number of such Participation Securities that the Company proposes to sell or issue, the price (before any commission or discount) at which such securities are proposed to be issued (or, in the case of an underwritten or privately placed offering in which the price is not known at the time the Preemptive Notice is given, the method of determining such price and an estimate thereof), the other material terms of the transaction and its Pro Rata Share of the Participation Securities.  At any time within fifteen (15) business days after its receipt of the Preemptive Notice, the Preemptive Holders may exercise their preemptive rights to purchase or subscribe for Participation Securities as provided for in this §7, by so informing the Company in writing (an “Exercise Notice”).  Each Exercise Notice shall state the percentage of the proposed sale or issuance that each Preemptive Holder elects to purchase (up to all the Participation Securities that could be purchased by all Preemptive Holders and all other Persons that have similar preemptive rights).

(c)

To the extent that any Preemptive Holder has indicated that such Preemptive Holder will not fully subscribe for its or his Pro Rata Share of the Participation Securities, the Company shall allocate all such Participation Securities not subscribed for to the Preemptive Holders who have subscribed for more Participation Securities than their Pro Rata Share (the “Fully Participating Preemptive Holders”) in the proportion that the number of shares of Common Stock each owns bears to the total number of shares of Common Stock owned by all such Fully Participating Preemptive Holders.  If the number of Participation Securities so allocated to a Fully Participating Preemptive Holder exceeds the maximum number of Participation Securities that it or he has indicated in its or his notice to the Company it or he is willing to subscribe for, then the Company shall allocate any excess over such maximum among all Fully Participating Preemptive Holders who have subscribed for a maximum number of Participation Securities which exceeds the number of Participation Securities allocated to them pursuant to the preceding sentence, in the proportion that their respective holdings bear to the total number of shares of Common Stock owned by all such Fully Participating Preemptive Holders, and the Company shall follow this procedure, if necessary, until all Participation Securities available for purchase by the Preemptive Holders have been allocated to them.

(d)

The purchase or subscription by the Preemptive Holders, pursuant to this §7 shall be on the same price and other terms and conditions, including the date of sale or issuance, as are applicable to the purchasers or subscribers of the additional Participation Securities whose purchases or subscriptions give rise to the preemptive rights, which price and other terms and conditions shall be as stated in the relevant Preemptive Notice.

(e)

If, with respect to any Preemptive Notice, the Preemptive Holders fail to deliver an Exercise Notice within the requisite time period, the Company shall have ninety (90) days after the expiration of the time in which the Exercise Notice is required to be delivered in which to sell not less than 90% and not more than 110% of the number of shares of Participation Securities of the Company described in the Preemptive Notice at a price of not less than the estimated price set forth in the Preemptive Notice.  If, at the end of such 90-day period, the Company has not completed the sale or issuance of Participation Securities of the Company in accordance with the terms described in the Preemptive Notice, or in the event of any contemplated sale or issuance within such 90-day period but outside such price parameters, the Company shall again be obligated to comply with the provisions of this §7 with respect to, and provide the opportunity to participate in, any proposed sale or issuance of Participation Securities of the Company.

§8.

Legend.

(a)

Each Stockholder hereto acknowledges and agrees that each certificate (or certificates) representing the securities subject to this agreement owned or held by it shall bear the following legend:

“The securities evidenced by this certificate have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and may not be sold or transferred unless there is an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the sale or transfer of such securities or such sale or transfer is exempt from the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act.  The securities evidenced by this certificate also are subject to certain other restrictions on transfer, as set forth in a Stockholders Agreement, dated as of November 30, 2004, among the Company and certain stockholders named therein (the “Stockholders Agreement”).  Accordingly, these securities may only be transferred in compliance with the Stockholders Agreement.”

(b)

The certificates representing such securities, and each certificate issued in transfer thereof, also will bear any legend required under any applicable state securities laws.

(c)

Absent an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the disposition of such securities which any party hereto acquires, any such party will not sell, transfer, assign, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of any or all of the securities (i) unless such disposition is exempt from the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act and has been registered or qualified under (or is exempt from the registration and qualification requirements of) any applicable state securities laws and (ii) except in compliance with the terms of this Agreement.

(d)

Each of the parties hereto consents to the Company making a notation on its records or giving instructions to any transfer agent of such securities in order to implement the restrictions on transfer of securities set forth in this §8.

(e)

Any legend endorsed on a certificate evidencing a security and any stop transfer instructions or notations on the Company’s records with respect to such security pursuant to §§8(a) and 8(b) hereof shall be removed or lifted (if and to the extent applicable) and the Company shall issue a certificate without such legend (or application portion thereof) to the holder of such security if (i) the transfer of such security has been registered under the Securities Act or (ii) such holder provides the Company with a certificate stating that a public sale or transfer of such security may be made without registration under the Securities Act and that such legend is not required under any applicable state securities laws.

§9.

Board of Directors.


(a)

For so long as Phronesis shall own an aggregate number of shares of Common Stock equal to at least 90% of the shares of Common Stock of the Company purchased by Phronesis pursuant to the provisions of the Purchase Agreement, Phronesis shall have the right to designate one (1) individual whom Phronesis desires to be elected or appointed as a member of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Phronesis Director”).  The Phronesis Director (if any) shall be James E. Wiggins, the general partner of Phronesis, Cheryl Turnbull, an employee of Phronesis, or another individual designated by Phronesis, who is qualified to serve as a director of the Company and is approved by the Company, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned.  The Stockholders shall vote all of their respective shares of capital stock of the Company (i) to elect as a director of the Company the person (if any) designated in writing by Phronesis to serve as the Phronesis Director in accordance with this paragraph and (ii) if and to the extent directed by Phronesis, for the removal of the Phronesis Director.  In the event of the death, resignation or removal of the Phronesis Director, the Company and the Stockholders shall vote all of their respective shares of capital stock of the Company to replace that director by another person designated by Phronesis in accordance with this paragraph.  If elected as a director, the Phronesis Director shall be entitled to receive Board fees in an amount not less than those, if any, paid to other non-officer directors of the Company, who are not affiliated with the Company, plus reimbursement from the Company for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with attendance at meetings of the Board and any committees thereof.

(b)

In addition to the rights granted to Phronesis under §9(a), for so long as Phronesis shall own an aggregate number of shares of Common Stock equal to at least 10% of the shares of Common Stock of the Company purchased by Phronesis pursuant to the provisions of the Purchase Agreement, Phronesis shall have the right to designate an observer (the “Phronesis Observer”), without voting rights, who will be entitled to attend and participate in all meetings of the Board, and any committees thereof.  Any such Phronesis Observer shall be entitled to notice of all meetings of the Board and any committees thereof and to information provided to any director in his or her capacity as such.  The Phronesis Observer shall be entitled to receive reimbursement from the Company for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with attendance at meetings of the Board and any committees thereof; provided, however, that (i) in no event shall the amount that the Company is obligated hereunder to reimburse the Phronesis Observer for any such expenses relating to Board meetings held in any particular fiscal year of the Company exceed Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000) per fiscal year, and (ii) the Company shall not be obligated to reimburse the Phronesis Observer for any expenses related to any Board meeting that occurs at a time when a Phronesis Director is a member of the Board.

(c)

The Company agrees that notwithstanding the fiduciary duties a director may have in his or her capacity as a member of the Board, any director or observer designated by Phronesis pursuant to this §9 may share with Phronesis any confidential information related to the Company disclosed to such director or observer during the exercise of his or her duties as a director or observer hereunder.

(d)

Phronesis agrees to keep confidential all information described in §9(d), but only to the extent required pursuant to the terms of that certain Confidentiality and Nondisclosure Agreement of even date herewith between the Company and Phronesis.

§10.

Protective Provisions.  So long as Phronesis owns at least 50% of the shares of Common Stock purchased by it pursuant to the provisions of the Purchase Agreement and the Warrant, the prior written approval of Phronesis shall be required in order for any Management Stockholder or Affiliate thereof to consummate any Related Party Transaction prior to the earlier to occur of (a) the APT Date or (b) the expiration of eight (8) years following the Closing Date.

§11.

 Right of First Refusal to Purchase Debt Securities.  If prior to the APT Date the Company receives an offer from any Management Stockholder (or if any Management Stockholder accepts such an offer from the Company) (i) to purchase any new promissory notes, bonds, debentures or other debt securities of the Company, or (ii) to make a loan to the Company (any such transaction under clause (i) or (ii) being hereinafter referred to as a “Related Party Loan”), then the Company shall first offer to sell fifty percent (50%) of the aggregate amount of such debt securities to Phronesis or offer to permit Phronesis to participate in making fifty percent (50%) of such loans, as applicable, in each case upon the same terms and conditions as offered by or to such Management Stockholder (a “Management Offer”).  Within five (5) business days after the Company’s receipt of any Management Offer, the Company shall give Phronesis written notice of the same (the “Company Notice”), which Company Notice shall set forth all of the material terms and conditions of such Management Offer (including, without limitation, the principal amount, interest rate, payment terms, security and covenants thereof).  Phronesis, in its discretion, shall have the right and option to purchase all or any portion of such offered debt securities or to make all or any portion of the offered loans.  Such option shall be exercisable only by Phronesis giving the Company written notice thereof (the “Exercise Notice”) within ten (10) business days after Phronesis’ receipt of the Company Notice.  If Phronesis timely exercises its option hereunder within such 10-business day period, then the closing of the Related Party Loan shall occur within thirty (30) days after the date of the Exercise Notice.  If Phronesis fails to exercise its option within such 10-business day period, then the Company shall be permitted to enter into the proposed Related Party Loan upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Company Notice and Phronesis shall have no further right to participate in the same.  If there is a material change in any of the terms of the proposed Related Party Loan from those set forth in the Company Notice or if the Company fails to close the proposed Related Party Loan within sixty (60) days after the date of the Company Notice, then the Company shall be required to reoffer the proposed Related Party Loan to Phronesis in accordance with the provisions of this §11.


§12.

Recapitalizations, Etc.  The provisions of this Agreement shall apply, to the full extent set forth herein, to any and all shares of capital stock, Convertible Securities and other securities (whether owned on the date hereof or hereafter acquired) of the Company or any capital stock, partnership units or any other security evidencing ownership interests in any successor or assign of the Company (whether by merger, consolidation, sale of assets or otherwise) which may be issued in respect of, in exchange for, or in substitution of shares of Common Stock, by reason of any stock dividend, split, reverse split, combination, recapitalization, liquidation, reclassification, merger, consolidation or otherwise.


§13.

Binding Effect.  The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and accrue to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, legal representatives, successors and permitted assigns.  


§14.
