(including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees except as limited by
Section 7(e)) caused by the breach by the Corporation of any covenant or
representation or warranty made by the Corporation in an underwriting agreement.
 
     (c) In connection with any registration statement in which a seller of
Registrable Shares is participating, each such seller will furnish to the
Corporation in writing such information and affidavits as the Corporation
reasonably requests for use in connection with any such registration statement
or prospectus or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto and, to the extent
permitted by law, will indemnify the Corporation, its directors and officers and
each person who controls the Corporation (within the meaning of the Securities
Act or the Securities Exchange Act) against any losses, claims, damages,
liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees except
as limited by Section 7(e)) resulting from any untrue statement of a material
fact contained in any registration statement, prospectus or preliminary
prospectus or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or any omission of a
material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements
therein not misleading, but only to the extent that such untrue statement or
omission is contained in any information or affidavit so furnished in writing by
such seller; provided that the obligation to indemnify will be several, not
joint and several, among such sellers of Registrable Shares, and the liability
of each such seller of Registrable Shares will be in proportion to, and provided
further that such liability will be limited to, the net amount received by such
seller from the sale of Registrable Shares pursuant to such registration
statement.
 
     (d) Each seller of Registrable Shares agrees to indemnify, to the extent
permitted by law, the Corporation, its directors and officers and each person
who controls the Corporation (within the meaning of the Securities Act or the
Securities Exchange Act) against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities and
expenses (including without limitation, attorneys' fees except as limited by
Section 7(e)) caused by the breach by such seller of a covenant or
representation or warranty made by such seller in an underwriting agreement;
provided, however, that each seller's obligation to indemnify will be several,
not joint and several, among the sellers of Registrable Shares, and the
liability of each such seller of Registrable Shares in any event will be limited
to the net amount received by such Seller from the sale of Registrable Shares
pursuant to the registration agreement to which such underwriting agreement
pertains.
 
     (e) Any Person entitled to indemnification hereunder will (i) give prompt
written notice to the indemnifying party of any claim with respect to which it
seeks indemnification and (ii) unless in such indemnified party's reasonable
judgment a conflict of interest between such indemnified and indemnifying
parties may exist with respect to such claim, permit such indemnifying party to
assume the defense of such claim with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the
indemnified party. If such defense is assumed, the indemnifying party will not
be subject to any liability for any settlement made by the indemnified party
without its consent (but such consent will not be unreasonably withheld). An
indemnifying party who is not entitled to, or elects not to, assume the defense
of a claim will not be obligated to pay the fees and expenses of more than one
counsel for all parties indemnified by such indemnifying party with respect to
such claim, unless in the reasonable judgment of any indemnified party a
conflict of interest may exist between such indemnified party and any other of
such indemnified parties with respect to such claim.
 
     (f) The indemnification provided for under this Agreement will remain in
full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of
the indemnified party or any officer, director or controlling Person of such
indemnified party and will survive the transfer of securities. The Corporation
also agrees to make such provisions as are reasonably requested by any
indemnified party for contribution to such party in the event the corporation's
indemnification is unavailable for any reason.
 
     8. COMPLIANCE WITH RULE 144.  In the event that the Corporation (a)
registers a class of securities under Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act,
(b) issues an offering circular meeting the requirements of Regulation A under
the Securities Act or (c) commences to file reports under Section 13 or 15(d) of
the Securities Exchange Act, then at the request of any holder of Registrable
Shares who proposes to sell securities in compliance with Rule 144 promulgated
by the Commission, the Corporation will use its best efforts to (i) forthwith
furnish to such holder a written statement as to compliance with the filing
requirements
