          requesting such Demand Registration are able to register at least 
          66 2/3% of the Registrable Shares agreed by such holders to be 
          included in such Demand Registration; provided that in any event the
          Corporation will pay all Registration Expenses in connection with any
          registration initiated as a Demand Registration requested hereunder
          (unless the holder or holders of such Registrable Shares requesting
          such Demand Registration request that the registration statement be
          withdrawn, in which case, such holders of Registrable Shares shall pay
          such Registration Expenses).

               (b) At any time after the earlier of (i) 180 days after the
          effective date of the Initial Public Offering, and (ii) the third
          anniversary date of this Amendment, the holders of at least 66 2/3% of
          the Preferred Stock may, by written notice delivered to the
          Corporation, require registration under the Securities Act of all or
          part of their Registrable Shares on Form S-1 or any similar long form
          registration ("Preferred Demand Registration"). The Corporation shall
          not be obligated to effect more than two Preferred Demand
          Registrations. A registration will not count as a permitted Preferred
          Demand Registration until it has become effective and will not count
          as a permitted Preferred Demand Registration until the Preferred Stock
          Purchasers are able to register at least 66 2/3% of the Registrable
          Shares agreed by such holders to be included in such Preferred Demand
          Registration; provided that in any event, the Corporation shall pay
          all Registration Expenses in connection with any registration
          initiated as a Preferred Demand Registration requested hereunder
          (unless the Preferred Stock Purchaser(s) requesting such Preferred
          Demand Registration request(s) that the registration statement be
          withdrawn, in which case, the Preferred Stock Purchaser(s) shall pay
          such Registration Expenses).

               (c) On or after the date upon which the Corporation has become
          entitled as a registrant to use Form S-3 or any similar short-form
          registration ("Short-Form Registration"), any such holder or holders
          of Registrable Shares may, at any time, require registration under the
          Securities Act of all or any part of their Registrable Shares on a
          Short-Form Registration; provided, however, that the aggregate
          offering value of the Registrable Shares requested to be registered in
          any Short-Form Registration must equal at least $1,000,000. The
          Corporation will pay all Registration Expenses in connection with any
          Short- Form Registration requested hereunder (unless the holder or
          holders of Registrable Shares requesting such Short-Form Registration
          request that the registration statement be withdrawn, in which case,
          such holders of Registrable Shares shall pay such Registration
          Expenses). Within ten days after receipt of any request pursuant to
          this Section 2(a), the Corporation will give written notice of such
          request to all other holders of Registrable Shares and will use its
          best efforts to include in such registration all Registrable Shares
          with respect to which the Corporation has received written requests
          for inclusion therein within 15 days after the date the Corporation's
          notice is received (or deemed received as provided in Section 19
          hereof).
