Company Agent, whether or not Indemnitee is acting or serving in such capacity
at the date of this Agreement, at the time liability is incurred or at the time
the Claim is initiated.

                 2.1.2.  The obligations of the Company under this Agreement
shall apply to the fullest extent authorized or permitted by the provisions of
applicable law, as presently in effect or as changed after the date of this
Agreement, whether by statute or judicial decision (but, in the case of any
subsequent change, only to the extent that such change permits the Company to
provide broader indemnification than permitted prior to giving effect thereto).

                 2.1.3.  Indemnitee shall not be entitled to indemnification
pursuant to this Agreement in connection with any Claim initiated by Indemnitee
against the Company or any director or officer of the Company, unless the
Company has joined in or consented to the initiation of such Claim; provided,
the provisions of this Section 2.1.3 shall not apply following a Change in
Control to Claims seeking enforcement of this Agreement, the Charter or Bylaws
of the Company or any other agreement now or hereafter in effect relating to
indemnification for Covered Events.

                 2.1.4.  If Indemnitee is entitled under any provision of this
Agreement to indemnification by the Company for some or a portion of the Losses
or Expenses paid with respect to a Claim but not, however, for the total amount
thereof, the Company shall nevertheless indemnify and hold Indemnitee harmless
against the portion thereof to which Indemnitee is entitled.

                 2.1.5.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement,
to the extent that Indemnitee has been successful on the merits or otherwise in
defense of any or all Claims relating to (or arising in whole or in part out
of) a Covered Event or in defense of any issue or matter therein, including
dismissal without prejudice, the Company shall indemnify and hold Indemnitee
harmless against all Expenses incurred in connection therewith.

         2.2.  Indemnification for Serving as Witness and Certain Other Claims.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Company hereby 
indemnifies and holds Indemnitee harmless for all Expenses in connection with 
(a) the preparation to serve or service as a witness in any Claim in which 
Indemnitee is not a party, if such actual or proposed service as a witness 
arose by reason of Indemnitee having served as a Company Agent on or after
the date of this Agreement and (b) any Claim initiated by Indemnitee on or 
after the date of this Agreement (i) for recovery under any directors' and 
officers' liability insurance maintained by the Company or (ii) following a 
Change in Control, for enforcement of the indemnification obligations of the 
Company under this Agreement, the Charter or Bylaws of the Company or any
other agreement now or hereafter in effect relating to indemnification for 
Covered Events, regardless of whether Indemnitee ultimately is determined to 
be entitled to such insurance recovery or indemnification, as the case may be.

         Section 3.  Limitation on Indemnification.

         3.1.  Coverage Limitations.  No indemnification is available pursuant
to the provisions of this Agreement:
