herein regarding termination. Subject to earlier termination as provided herein,
the initial term of this Agreement shall be automatically extended for one (1)
year from March 1, 2003, unless either the Employee or the Company gives written
notice to the other six months or more prior to February 28, 2003.
 
4.       COMPENSATION.
 
         (a) Base Salary. For all services rendered by the Employee under this

         (b) Annual Bonus. Effective for the Company's fiscal year ending
February 28, 2002 and continuing with respect to each subsequent fiscal year

annual bonus equal to the sum of (a) the mathematical product of Employee's base

         (c) Bonus. In addition to the Employee's annual base salary and other
benefits provided for in this Agreement, the Company may pay to the Employee on
an annual basis a discretionary bonus in an amount to be approved by the Board

payable hereunder, if any, exceed Employee's annual base salary provided for in
Section 4(a).

receive benefits under any employee benefit plan or arrangement made available

personnel, subject to and on a basis consistent with the terms, conditions and

under any plan or arrangement presently in effect or made available in the
future shall be deemed to be in lieu of the salary and bonuses payable to the
Employee pursuant to Subsections 4(a), (b) and (c).
 
         (e) Stock Option. In consideration of the Employee's execution of the
Old Agreement, the Company granted effective June 26, 2000 options to purchase
an aggregate of 500,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock to the Employee

the Board of Directors of the Company and, subject to the authority of such
board, shall have supervision and control over, and responsibility for, the
general management and operation of the Company and shall have such other powers
and duties as may from time to time be prescribed by such board, provided that

executive officer and president of a public company.
 
         (b) Extent of Services and Situs. The Employee shall devote
substantially all of his business time, attention, and energy to the business
and affairs of the Company and shall not during the term of his employment under
this Agreement engage in any other business activity which could constitute a
conflict of interest, whether or not such business activity is pursued for gain,
profit, or other pecuniary advantage. This shall not be construed as preventing
the Employee from managing his current investments or investing his assets in
such form or manner as will not require any services on the part of the Employee
in the operation and the affairs of the companies in which such investments are
made, subject to the provisions of Sections 6 and 27. The Employee shall not be
required to change the principal place of his employment to a location which is
more than 15 miles further away from his principal residence than such principal
place of employment at the time of the execution of this Agreement:
 
6.       COVENANT NOT TO COMPETE.
 
         (a) The Employee acknowledges that (i) as a result of his position and
tenure with the Company he has received and will continue to receive specialized
and unique training and knowledge concerning the Company, its business, its
customers and the industry in which it competes, (ii) the Company's business, in
large part, depends upon its exclusive possession and use of the Proprietary
Information (as defined in Section 27), (iii) the Company is entitled to
protection against the unauthorized disclosure or use by Employee of the
Proprietary Information or the training and knowledge received by the Employee
and (iv) he has received in this Agreement good and valuable consideration for
the covenants he is making in this Section 6 and in Section 27. The Company and
the Employee acknowledge and agree that the covenants contained in this Section
6 and in Section 27 are reasonably necessary for the protection of the Company
and are reasonably limited with respect to the activities they prohibit, their
duration, their geographical scope and their effects on the Employee and the
public. The parties acknowledge that the purpose and effect of the covenants are
to protect the Company from unfair competition by the Employee.
 
         (b) Except as provided in the last sentence of this Section 6(b),
during the period in which the Employee renders services to the Company under
this Agreement and for eighteen (18) months thereafter, the Employee shall not,
without the written consent of the Company, own, manage, operate, control, serve
as an officer, director, employee, partner or consultant of or be connected in
any way with or have any interest in any corporation, partnership,
proprietorship or other entity which carries on business activities in
competition with the Company's activities in any state of the United States or
in any foreign country in which the Company has sold or installed its products
or systems
 
 
                                       7
<PAGE>
 
 
or has definitive plans to sell or install its products at any time prior to or
at the time of the date of termination of the Employee's employment; except that
the Employee may own up to 1% of the shares of any publicly-owned corporation,
provided that none of his other relationships with such corporation violates
such covenant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of this Section 6
shall not apply if the Employee's employment with the Company under this
Agreement is terminated (i) by the Company, unless the Employee is terminated in
accordance with Section 7 or for Cause in accordance with Subsection 9.1(a) or
9.2(a), or (ii) at the election of the Employee prior to the Triggering Date
after the occurrence of an Event of Default which has not been waived in writing
or on or after the Triggering Date for Good Reason.
 
         (c) The Company and the Employee hereby agree that in the event that
the noncompetition covenants contained herein should be held by any court or
other constituted legal authority of competent jurisdiction to be effective in
any particular area or jurisdiction only if said covenants are modified to limit
their duration, geographical area or scope, then the parties hereto will
consider Section 6 to be amended and modified with respect to that particular
area or jurisdiction so as to comply with the order of any such court or other
constituted legal authority and, as to all other jurisdictions or political
subdivisions thereof, the noncompetition covenants contained herein will remain
in full force and effect as originally written. The Company and the Employee
further agree that in the event that the noncompetition covenants contained
herein should be held by any court or other constituted legal authority of
competent jurisdiction to be void or otherwise unenforceable in any particular
area or jurisdiction notwithstanding the operation of this Section 6(c), then
the parties hereto will consider this Section 6 to be amended and modified so as
to eliminate therefrom that particular area or jurisdiction as to which such
noncompetition covenants are so held void or otherwise unenforceable, and, as to
all other areas and jurisdictions covered by the noncompetition covenants, the
terms and provisions hereof shall remain in full force and effect as originally
written.
 
         (d) Employee recognizes and acknowledges that the Company would suffer
irreparable harm and substantial loss if Employee violated any of the terms and
provisions of this Section 6 or Section 27 and that the actual damages which
might be sustained by the Company as the result of any breach of this Section 6
or Section 27 would be difficult to ascertain. Employee agrees, at the election
of the Company and in addition to, and not in lieu of, the Company's right to
terminate Employee's employment and to seek all other remedies and damages which
the Company may have at law and/or equity for such breach, that the Company
shall be entitled to an injunction restraining Employee from breaching any of
the terms or provisions of this Section 6 or Section 27.
 
7.       COMPENSATION IN THE EVENT OF DISABILITY.
 
         (a) Disability. If the Employee becomes disabled during the term of
this Agreement the Company shall cause to be paid to the Employee an amount
equal to his base salary in effect at the time of disability under Subsection
4(a), for the shorter of the duration of the disability or the remainder of the
term of this Agreement and, subject to the provisions of Sections 22 and 25,
with no liability on its part for further payments to the Employee during the
duration of the disability. Subject to Subsection 7(b) below, full compensation
shall be reinstituted upon his return to employment and resumption of his
duties. For purposes of this Subsection 7(a) the Employee shall be deemed
"disabled" when he is unable, for a period of 90 consecutive days, to perform
his normal duties of employment due to bodily injury or disease or any other
physical or mental disability.
 
 
                                       8
<PAGE>
 
 
         (b) Complete Disability. The Company shall have the right to terminate
the Employee's employment under this Agreement prior to the expiration of the
term upon the "Complete Disability" of the Employee as hereinafter defined
(provided, however, that the obligations of the Company under Subsection 7(a)
shall not terminate). The term "Complete Disability" as used in this Subsection
7(b) shall mean (i) the total inability of the Employee, due to bodily injury or
disease or any other physical or mental incapacity, to perform the services
provided for hereunder for a period of 120 days, in the aggregate, within any
given period of 180 consecutive days during the term of this Agreement, and (ii)
where such inability will, in the opinion of a qualified physician (reasonably
acceptable to Employee), be permanent and continuous during the remainder of his
life.
 
8.       COMPENSATION IN THE EVENT OF DEATH.
 
         If the Employee dies during the term of his employment, the Company
shall pay to such person as the Employee shall designate in a notice filed with
the Company, or, if no such person shall be designated, to his estate as a death
benefit, his base salary in effect at the time of his death pursuant to
Subsection 4(a), in equal semi-monthly installments on the first and fifteenth
day of each month immediately succeeding his death, for a period of months (not
exceeding 12) determined by multiplying the number of complete 12-month periods
of employment of the Employee by the Company (whether pursuant to an employment
agreement or not) by two, in addition to any payments the Employee's spouse,
beneficiaries, or estate may be entitled to receive pursuant to any pension or
employee benefit plan or life insurance policy maintained by the Company, and,
except for any obligations of the Company under Sections 22 and 25, all other
obligations of the Company hereunder shall cease at the time of the Employee's
death.

death; or (d) termination at the election of the Employee pursuant to Subsection
9.1(b) then, within five days after the date of such termination, (i) the
Remaining Compensation (as herein defined) which would have been paid to the
Employee during the remainder of the term of this Agreement if termination had
not occurred shall become due and payable and shall be paid to the Employee in a
single lump sum in cash, and (ii) all stock options granted to Employee pursuant
to Subsection 4(e) hereof which are not then exercisable shall, notwithstanding
the provisions of any other agreement, become immediately exercisable and shall
remain exercisable until they are exercised or until they otherwise would
expire. For purposes of this Subsection 10.1, the "Remaining Compensation" shall
mean the annual base salary payable to the Employee pursuant to Subsection 4 (a)
at the time of termination plus an amount representing the value of all employee
benefits including, without limitation, any unearned annual bonuses described in
Subsection 4 (b), discretionary bonuses and incentive compensation under plans
then in effect. For these purposes, the value of any unearned annual bonuses and
all of such other employee benefits shall be deemed to be equal to 12 months
base salary payable to the Employee pursuant to Subsection 4(a) at the time his
employment is terminated.
 
         10.2 Post Triggering Date Severance Payment. If the Employee's
employment with the Company is terminated (whether such termination is by the
Employee or by the Company) at any time on or within three years after the
Triggering Date for any reason other than (a) termination by the Company for
Cause in accordance with Subsection 9.2(a) or (b) termination by the Company in
accordance with Section 7 or (c) the Employee's death or (d) termination at the
election of the Employee other than termination for Good Reason without
compliance with the retirements of Section 9.2(c), then, within five days after
the date of such termination, the Company shall pay the Employee a lump sum
amount in cash equal to 2.99 times the Annualized Compensation Amount.
 
         10.3 Gross-Up Payment. In the event that (i) the Employee becomes
entitled to the payments provided under Section 10.2 of this Agreement (the
"Change in Control Payments") and any of the Change in Control Payments will be
subject to the tax (the "Excise Tax") imposed by Section 4999 of the Internal
Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), or any successor provision, or
(ii) any payments or benefits received or to be received by the Employee
pursuant to the terms of any other plan, arrangement or agreement (the "Benefit
Payments") will be subject to the Excise Tax, the Company shall pay to the
Employee an additional amount (the "Gross-Up Payment") such that the net amount
retained by the Employee, after deduction of any Excise Tax on the Change in
Control Payments and the Benefit Payments, and any federal, state and local
income tax and Excise Tax upon the payment provided for by this Section 10.3,
shall be equal to the Change in Control Payments and the Benefit Payments,
provided, however, that in determining the amount of the Gross-Up Payment, any
Excise Tax on the Change in Control Payments and the Benefit Payments shall be
determined using a rate no higher than 20%. For purposes of determining whether
any of the Change in Control Payments or the Benefit Payments will be subject to
the Excise Tax and the amount of such Excise Tax, (i) any payments or benefits
received or to be received by the

Employee in connection with a change in control of the Company or the Employee's
termination of employment (whether pursuant to the terms of this agreement or
any other plan, arrangement or agreement with the Company, any person whose
actions result in change in control or any person affiliated with the Company or
such persons) shall be treated as "parachute payments" within the meaning of
Section 280G(b) (2) of the Code, and all "excess parachute payments" within the
meaning of Section 280G(b) (1) shall be treated as subject to the Excise Tax,
unless in the opinion of tax counsel selected by the Company's independent
auditors and acceptable to the Employee such payments or benefits (in whole or
in part) do not constitute parachute payments, or such excess payments (in whole
or in part) represent reasonable compensation for services actually rendered
within the meaning of Section 280G(b) (4) of the Code, (ii) the amount of the
Change in Control Payments and the Benefit Payments that shall be treated as
subject to the Excise Tax shall be equal to the lesser of (A) the total amount
of the Change in Control Payments and the Benefit Payments or (B) the amount of
excess parachute payments within the meaning of Sections 280G(b)(1) and (4)
(after applying clause (i), above) and (iii) the value of any non-cash benefits
or any deferred payment or benefit shall be determined by the Company's
independent auditors in accordance with the principles of Sections 280G(d)(3)
and (4) of the Code. For purposes of determining the amount of the Gross-Up
Payment, the Employee shall be deemed to pay federal income taxes at the highest
marginal rate of federal income taxation in the calendar year in which the
Gross-Up Payment is to be made and state and local income taxes at the highest
marginal rates of taxation in the state and locality of the Employee's residence
on the date of termination, net of the maximum reduction in federal income taxes
which could be obtained from deduction of such state and local taxes. In the
event that the Excise Tax is subsequently determined to be less than the amount
taken into account hereunder at the time of termination of the Employee's
employment, the Employee shall repay to the Company at that time that the amount
of such reduction in Excise Tax is finally determined the portion of the
Gross-Up Payment attributable to such reduction plus interest on the amount of
such repayment at the rate provided in Section 1274(b)(2)(B) of the Code. In the
event that the Excise Tax is determined to exceed the amount taken into account
hereunder at the time of the termination of the Employee's employment (including
by reason of any payment the existence or amount of which cannot be determined
at the time of the Gross-Up Payment), the Company shall make an additional
gross-up payment to the Employee in respect of such excess (plus any interest
payable with respect to such excess) at the time that the amount of such excess
is finally determined.
 
11.      MITIGATION.
 
         The Employee shall not be required to mitigate the amount of any
payment provided for in this Agreement by seeking other employment or otherwise,
nor shall the amount of any payment provided for in this Agreement be reduced by
any compensation earned by the Employee as the result of employment by another
employer after the date of termination of Employee's employment with the
Company, or otherwise.

business entity succeeding to substantially all of the business and assets of

Information constitute valuable, special and unique assets and trade secrets of
its business, which provide to the Company a competitive advantage over others
who do not have access thereto and access to which is essential to the

of this Agreement or thereafter, use or disclose any Proprietary Information
that is not otherwise publicly available, in whole or in part, for his benefit
or for the benefit of any other person or party, except for the Company. As used
herein, "Proprietary Information" includes, but is not limited to, customer
lists and prices, whether current or prospective, product designs or other
product information, experimental developments and other research and
development information, testing processes, marketing studies and research
activities, and any other trade secrets concerning the Company, its
shareholders, officers, directors, employees, business prospects, customers,
transactions, finances, affairs, opportunities, operations, properties or
assets. The Employee further agrees that all inventions, devices, compounds,
processes, formulas, techniques, improvements and modifications which he may
develop, in whole or in part, during the term of his employment or through or
with the facilities, equipment or resources of the Company shall be and remain
the sole and exclusive property of the Company. The Employee agrees to deliver

tangible and other forms of Proprietary Information in Employee's custody or
control until his obligations under the preceding sentence are satisfied.
Employee agrees to execute all documents and take such other actions as may be
required to comply with this Section.
