take,  or cause to be taken,  all  actions  and to do, or cause to be done,  all
things  necessary,  proper or advisable  under  Applicable Law to consummate the
Merger and make  effective  the  Transactions,  including  using its  reasonable
business  efforts (i) to prepare  and file with the  applicable  Authorities  as
promptly as  practicable  after the  execution of this  Agreement  all requisite
applications and amendments thereto, together with related information, data and
exhibits,  necessary to request  issuance of orders approving the Merger and the

Section  7.1(c)  hereof;  (ii) to obtain all necessary or  appropriate  waivers,

injunction or other legal bar to the Merger and the  Transactions  (and, in such
case,  to proceed  with the  Merger and the  Transactions  as  expeditiously  as
possible),  subject,  however, to the requisite votes of the stockholders of the
parties,  and  (v) to  comply  with  all of the  terms  and  provisions  of this
Agreement  and each of the  Collateral  Documents to which it is or may become a

         (b) Each of the parties  hereto  agrees to take such  actions as may be
necessary to obtain any  Governmental  Authorizations  legally  required for the
consummation  of the Merger and the  Transactions,  including  the making of any
Governmental Filings, publications and requests for extensions and waivers.

         (c) The Company will use its reasonable business efforts on or prior to
the Closing Date (i) to obtain the  satisfaction of the conditions  specified in
Sections  7.1 and 7.2 hereof;  (ii) if  requested by Key, to obtain the consents
(to the extent  required) to the continued  existence of all  long-term  debt of
