                                   EXHIBIT "A"
 
           Preferences, Limitations and Rights of Series A Preferred:
 
                  (1) DIVIDENDS AND DISTRIBUTIONS.
 
                           (a) The holders of shares of Series A Preferred shall
be  entitled  to  receive  dividends  at a rate  of  eight  percent  (8%) of the
Conversion  Value (as  defined  in  Section  3(a)  below) per annum per share of
Series A Preferred, which shall be fully cumulative,  prior and in preference to
any declaration or payment of any dividend  (payable other than in Common Stock)
or other  distribution  on any other class or series of  Preferred  Stock or the
Common Stock of the Corporation (and excluding any stock splits and subdivisions
for  which  an  adjustment  is  made  under  Section   3(d)(vi)(1)  below).  The
dividend(s) payable hereunder shall be payable annually on March 31 of each year
(each an "Annual  Dividend Date")  commencing on March 31, 1996,  except that if
any such date is a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday (a "Non-Business Day") then
such dividend shall be payable on the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday or
legal  holiday on which banks in the State of Georgia are permitted to be closed
(a "Business Day") to holders of record as they appear on the stock books of the
Corporation on the applicable  record date,  which shall be not more than 60 nor
less than 10 days preceding the payment date for such dividends, as fixed by the
Board of Directors (the "Record Date").  The foregoing  dividend on the Series A
Preferred  shall  accrue from the date of  issuance of each share,  but shall be
payable  only when,  as and if declared by the Board of  Directors  out of funds
legally  available  therefor.  The dividend shall be payable in cash,  except as
otherwise  provided in the next paragraph.  In addition to the above  dividends,
each person who is a holder of record of Series A  Preferred  at the time of the
initial  issuance of shares of Series A Preferred  by the  Corporation  shall be
entitled  to  receive a  one-time  supplemental  dividend  per share of Series A
Preferred in an amount equal to the dividend which would have accrued on a share
of Series A  Preferred  had such share  been  issued on January  18,  1994,  and
remained  outstanding until the day prior to the date of initial issuance,  with
the dividend  computed at the rate of eight percent (8%) of the Conversion Value
per annum per share of Series A Preferred.  The  supplemental  dividend shall be
payable in cash,  except as  otherwise  provided in the next  paragraph,  on the
Annual Dividend Date occurring on March 31, 1996, or the next following Business
Day. The supplemental dividend shall be payable only when, as and if declared by
the Board of Directors out of funds legally available  therefor.  All subsequent
references  herein to  dividends  on the Series A Preferred  shall  include such
supplemental  dividend.  The amount of dividends  payable for any period that is
shorter or longer than a full annual  dividend shall be computed on the basis of
a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months.  All accrued but unpaid  dividends shall
accrue  interest after each Annual Dividend Date at a rate of eight percent (8%)
per annum (compounded on an annual basis) from each Annual Dividend Date.
 
         The Board of Directors of the  Corporation  may, within sixty (60) days
after each Annual  Dividend  Date,  elect (the  "Dividend  Election") to pay the
annual cash  dividends  payable for such year on such  Annual  Dividend  Date in
shares of Common  Stock (the  "Payments-in-Kind")  rather than cash.  If such an
election is made, the Corporation shall promptly notify the holders of record of
the Series A Preferred  entitled to such annual dividend of the election to make
the  Payments-in-Kind in lieu of cash dividends for such Annual Dividend Date. A
Dividend Election for any particular Annual Dividend Date shall operate only for
such Annual  Dividend Date.  Payments-in-Kind  shall be payable as of the Annual
Dividend  Date of each year for which the election is made,  except that if such
date is a Non-Business Day then such Payment-in-Kind  shall be payable as of the
next  Business Day to holders of record as they appear on the stock books of the
Corporation on the applicable Record Date. Each  Payment-in-Kind  shall be equal
in amount to be that number of shares of Common Stock that is equal in number to
the  aggregate  cash  dividend  payable on any such dividend date divided by the
Conversion Value (as defined in Section 3(a) below), and shall be allocated on a
pro rata basis to each holder  entitled to receive such  dividend.  Certificates
representing   the  shares  of  Common   Stock   issuable   on  payment  of  any
Payment-in-Kind  shall
 
<PAGE>
 
be  delivered  to each  holder  entitled  to receive  such  Payment-in-Kind  (in
appropriate  denominations)  on or before the ninetieth (90th) day following the
Annual  Dividend  Date for which  such  Payment-in-Kind  is  elected  to be made
hereunder.  No interest shall accrue on a  Payment-in-Kind  issued in compliance
with the terms hereof. If a  Payment-in-Kind  is not made in compliance with the
terms hereof, the Corporation shall be obligated to pay the cash dividends under
the procedures in the previous paragraph.
 
                           (b)   Notwithstanding   Section  l(a)   hereof,   the
Corporation may at any time, out of funds legally available therefor, repurchase
shares of Common Stock of the  Corporation  (i) issued to or held by  employees,
directors or consultants of the Corporation or its subsidiaries upon termination
of their  employment or services,  pursuant to any agreement  providing for such
right of  repurchase,  or (ii)  issued to or held by any  person  subject to the
Corporation's  right of first refusal to purchase such shares where the purchase
is  pursuant  to the  exercise  of such right of first  refusal,  in either case
whether  or not  dividends  on the  Series A  Preferred  Stock  shall  have been
declared and paid or funds set aside therefor,  subject to any other contractual
restrictions entered into by the Corporation.
 
                  (2)  LIQUIDATION  RIGHTS.  In the  event  of any  liquidation,
dissolution or winding up of the Corporation,  whether voluntary or involuntary,
distributions  shall be made to the holders of Series A Preferred  in respect of
such  Series A Preferred  before any amount  shall be paid to the holders of any
other  class or series of capital  stock of the  Corporation,  in the  following
manner:
 
                           (a) SERIES A  PREFERRED.  The holders of the Series A
Preferred  shall  be  entitled  to be  paid  first  out  of  the  assets  of the
Corporation available for distribution to holders of its capital stock an amount
per share equal to (i) the Conversion  Value (as defined in Section 3(a) below),
as  appropriately   adjusted  to  reflect  any  stock  split,   stock  dividend,
combination,  recapitalization and the like (collectively a  "Recapitalization")
of the  Series A  Preferred,  plus  (ii) all  accrued  or  declared  but  unpaid
dividends (including any interest accrued thereon calculated through the date of
liquidation).  If, upon the occurrence of a liquidation,  dissolution or winding
up,  the assets and funds  thus  distributed  among the  holders of the Series A
Preferred  shall be  insufficient to permit the payment to such holders of their
full  liquidation  preferences,   then  the  entire  assets  and  funds  of  the
Corporation  legally  available for distribution to the holders of capital stock
shall. be distributed ratably among the holders of the Series A Preferred.
 
                           (b) REMAINING  ASSETS.  If assets are remaining after
payment of the full  preferential  amount with respect to the Series A Preferred
set forth in Section  2(a) above,  then the holders of any other class or series
of Preferred Stock, if any, shall be entitled to their  respective  preferential
amounts on liquidation,  and thereafter the holders of the Common Stock shall be
entitled to share ratably in all such  remaining  assets and surplus funds based
on the number of shares of Common Stock held by each.
 
                           (c) EVENTS DEEMED A LIQUIDATION. For purposes of this
Section 2, the  holders of a majority of the Series A  Preferred  may elect,  as
part of any  approval  of such class  required  under  Section 8 below,  to have
treated as a  liquidation,  dissolution  or winding  up of the  Corporation  the
consolidation or merger of the Corporation with or into any other corporation or
the sale or  other  transfer  in a single  transaction  or a series  of  related
transactions of all or substantially  all of the assets of the  Corporation,  or
any other  reorganization  of the  Corporation,  unless the  stockholders of the
Corporation  immediately prior to any such transaction are holders of a majority
of the voting securities of the surviving or acquiring  corporation  immediately
thereafter (and for purposes of this  calculation  equity  securities  which any
stockholder  or the  Corporation  owned  immediately  prior  to such  merger  or
consolidation  as a  stockholder  of another party to the  transaction  shall be
disregarded).
 
                           (d)  VALUATION OF  SECURITIES  AND  PROPERTY.  In the
event  the  Corporation  proposes  to  distribute  assets  other  than  cash  in
connection with any  liquidation,  dissolution or winding up of the
 
                                       2
<PAGE>
 
Corporation,  the value of the assets to be distributed to the holders of shares
of  Series  A  Preferred  shall be  determined  in good  faith  by the  Board of
Directors.   Any  securities  not  subject  to  investment   letter  or  similar
restrictions on free marketability shall be valued as follows:
 
                                    (i)  If  traded  on  a  national  securities
         exchange or the Nasdaq  National  Market System  ("Nasdaq"),  the value
         shall be deemed to be the average of the  security's  closing prices on
         such  exchange or Nasdaq over the thirty (30) day period  ending  three
         (3) days prior to the distribution;
 
                                    (ii)  If  actively  traded  over-the-counter
         (other than Nasdaq), the value shall be deemed to be the average of the
         closing  bid prices over the thirty  (30) day period  ending  three (3)
         days prior to the distribution; and
 
                                    (iii) If there is no active  public  market,
         the value shall be the fair market value  thereof as determined in good
         faith by the Board of Directors.
 
The method of  valuation of  securities  subject to  investment  letter or other
restrictions  on free  marketability  shall be adjusted  to make an  appropriate
discount from the market value determined as above in clauses (i), (ii) or (iii)
to reflect  the fair market  value  thereof as  determined  in good faith by the
Board of  Directors.  The  holders of at least 50% of the  outstanding  Series A
Preferred  shall have the right to challenge any  determination  by the Board of
Directors of fair market value  pursuant to this Section 2(d), in which case the
determination  of fair market  value shall be made by an  independent  appraiser
selected jointly by the Board of Directors and the challenging parties, the cost
of such  appraisal to be borne equally by the  Corporation  and the  challenging
parties.
 
                  (3)  CONVERSION.  The holders of the Series A  Preferred  have
         conversion rights as follows (the "Conversion Rights"):
 
                           (a)  RIGHT  TO  CONVERT.   Each  share  of  Series  A
Preferred shall  initially be convertible,  at the option of the holder thereof,
at any time on or after the earlier of (i) January 18,  1997,  (ii) the date the
Corporation  becomes  subject  to the  periodic  reporting  requirements  of the
Securities Act of 1934, as amended, (iii) the date the Corporation enters into a
transaction  for a  consolidation  or merger of the  Corporation  into any other
corporation or the sale or other  transfer in a single  transaction or series of
related  transactions  of  all  or  substantially  all  of  the  assets  of  the
Corporation  which  will  result  in the  exchange  of each  share  of  Series A
Preferred (or shares issuable upon conversion thereof) for cash or property with
a value (as defined in Section 2(d) of at least two times the  Conversion  Value
(as defined  herein) on or prior to January 18,  1996,  and at least three times
the  Conversion  Value if after such date (a  "Qualified  Merger"),  or (iv) the
giving by the  Corporation of the Redemption  Notice under Section 5 below (each
of the foregoing an "Eligible  Conversion Date"), but not later than on or prior
to the  second day prior to such  date,  if any,  as may have been fixed for the
redemption  thereof in any call for redemption  pursuant to Section 5 below,  at
the principal  office of the  Corporation or any transfer agent for the Series A
Preferred,  into the  number of fully  paid and  nonassessable  shares of Common
Stock  which  results  from  dividing  the  Conversion   Price  (as  hereinafter
specified)  per share in effect for such series at the time of  conversion  into
the per share  Conversion Value (as hereinafter  specified) of such series.  The
initial  Conversion  Price of the Series A Preferred shall be $31.012 per share,
and the Conversion  Value of the Series A Preferred  shall be $31.012 per share.
The  initial  Conversion  Price of the  Series A  Preferred  shall be subject to
adjustment from time to time as provided in Section 3(d) hereof.  The Conversion
Value  shall  not  be  subject  to  adjustment  (except  in  connection  with  a
Recapitalization). Upon conversion, all accrued or declared but unpaid dividends
(including any interest accrued thereon calculated as of the date of conversion)
on the Series A  Preferred  shall be paid in cash,  to the extent  permitted  by
applicable law.
 
                                       3
<PAGE>
 
                           (b)  AUTOMATIC  CONVERSION.  Each  share of  Series A
Preferred shall  automatically be converted into shares of Common Stock upon the
closing  of a  firm  commitment  underwritten  public  offering  pursuant  to an
effective  registration  statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended,
covering the offer and sale of securities for the account of the  Corporation to
the public,  (i) the net  proceeds of which  exceed  $10,000,000  at a price per
share to the public of at least $10, and (ii) the aggregate  value of the shares
of Common Stock issuable on conversion of each share of Series A Preferred is at
least two times the Conversion  Value if prior to or on January 18, 1996, and at
least three times the Conversion  Value after such date.  Upon  conversion,  all
accrued or declared but unpaid dividends (including any interest accrued thereon
calculated as of the date of conversion) on the Series A Preferred shall be paid
in cash, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
 
                           (c)  MECHANICS  OF  CONVERSION.  Before any holder of
Series A  Preferred  shall be entitled to convert the same into shares of Common
Stock  and to  receive  certificates  therefor,  he or she shall  surrender  the
certificate or certificates therefor,  duly endorsed, at the principal office of
the  Corporation or of any transfer agent for the Series A Preferred,  and shall
give written  notice to the  Corporation at such office that he or she elects to
convert  the  same;  provided,  however,  that  in  the  event  of an  automatic
conversion  pursuant to Section 3(b) hereof,  the outstanding shares of Series A
Preferred  shall be converted  automatically  without any further  action by the
holders of such shares and  whether or not the  certificates  representing  such
shares are surrendered to the  Corporation or its transfer  agent;  and provided
further  that the  Corporation  shall  not be  obligated  to issue  certificates
evidencing the shares of Common Stock  issuable upon such  automatic  conversion
unless and until the  certificates  evidencing such shares of Series A Preferred
are either delivered to the Corporation or its transfer agent as provided above,
or  the  holder  notifies  the  Corporation  or its  transfer  agent  that  such
certificates  have been lost,  stolen or  destroyed  and  executes an  agreement
satisfactory  to the  Corporation  to indemnify  the  Corporation  from any loss
incurred by it in connection with such  certificates.  The Corporation shall, as
soon  as  practicable   after  such  delivery,   or  after  such  agreement  and
indemnification,  issue and  deliver at such  office to such  holder of Series A
Preferred,  a  certificate  or  certificates  for the number of shares of Common
Stock to which he or she shall be entitled as aforesaid  and a check  payable to
the  holder in the  amount of any  accrued  or  declared  but  unpaid  dividends
(including any interest accrued thereon calculated as of the date of conversion)
payable pursuant to Section I hereof, if any. Such conversion shall be deemed to
have been made  immediately  prior to the close of  business on the date of such
surrender of the shares of Series A Preferred to be  converted,  or, in the case
of  automatic  conversion,  immediately  prior to the  occurrence  of the  event
leading to such  automatic  conversion,  and the person or persons  entitled  to
receive  the  shares of Common  Stock  issuable  upon such  conversion  shall be
treated  for all  purposes  as the record  holder or  holders of such  shares of
Common Stock on such date.  In the event of a notice of redemption of any shares
of Series A Preferred  pursuant to Section 5 below, the conversion  rights shall
terminate as to the shares designated for redemption at the close of business on
the second day preceding the redemption date,  unless default is made in payment
of the redemption  price,  in which case the  conversion  rights for such shares
shall  continue  until such payment.  If the  Corporation  fails to pay all such
dividends  (and  interest  thereon)  within  twenty  (20)  days  of the  date of
conversion,  the holder  entitled to such dividends  (and interest  thereon) may
elect  to have  the  Corporation  issue  to such  holder,  in lieu of such  cash
payment,  additional  shares of Common  Stock  calculated  by dividing the total
amount payable on such date by the Conversion Value.
 
                           (d) ADJUSTMENTS TO CONVERSION PRICE.
 
                                    (i)  SPECIAL  DEFINITIONS.  For  purposes of
         this Section 3(d), the following definitions shall apply:

         distribution on Series A Preferred;
 
                                                     (D)   in   a    transaction
         described in Section 3(d)(vi); or
 
                                                     (E) by way of  dividend  or
         other  distribution  on  shares  of  Common  Stock  excluded  from  the

                                            (4) "ORIGINAL  ISSUANCE  DATE" shall
         mean the date on which  the  first  share  of  Series A  Preferred  was
         issued.

         made in respect of the  issuance of  Additional  Shares of Common Stock
         unless the  consideration  per share for an Additional  Share of Common
         Stock issued or deemed to be issued by the Corporation is less than the
         Conversion  Price for the Series A Preferred  in effect on the date of,
         and immediately prior to, such issue.
 
                                    (iii) DEEMED ISSUE OF ADDITIONAL  SHARES  OF
         COMMON STOCK.
 
                                            (1)    OPTIONS    AND    CONVERTIBLE
         SECURITIES.  In the event the  Corporation  at any time or from time to
         time after the Original  Issue Date shall issue any Options (other than
         the issuance of Options  pursuant to the  Corporation's  Option Pool of
         25,000  shares  of  Common  Stock,  and  the  issuance  of  Options  in
         replacement or substitution of the Options issued prior to the Original
         Issue Date) or  Convertible  Securities  or shall fix a record date for
         the  determination  of holders of any class of  securities  entitled to
         receive any such Options or  Convertible  Securities,  then the maximum
         number  of  shares  (as set forth in the  instrument  relating  thereto
         without  regard to any  provisions  contained  therein for a subsequent
         adjustment  of such number) of Common Stock  issuable upon the exercise
         of such Options or, in the case of  Convertible  Securities and Options
         therefor,  the exercise of such Options and  conversion  or exchange of
         such Convertible  Securities shall be deemed to be Additional Shares of
         Common  Stock  issued  as of the time of such  issue or, in case such a
         record date shall have been fixed,  as of the close of business on such
         record date,  provided that Additional Shares of Common Stock shall not
         be  deemed to have  been  issued  unless  the  consideration  per share
         (determined  pursuant  to Section  3(d)(v)  hereof) of such  Additional
         Shares  of Common  Stock  would be less  than the  Conversion  Price in
         effect  on the date of and  immediately  prior to such  issue,  or such
         record date,
 
                                       5
<PAGE>
 
         as the case may be, and provided further that in any such case in which
         Additional Shares of Common Stock are deemed to be issued:
 
                                                     (A) except as  provided  in
         Section 3(d)(iii)(1)(B),  no further adjustment in the Conversion Price
         shall be made upon the subsequent  issue of  Convertible  Securities or
         shares of Common Stock upon the exercise of such Options or  conversion
         or exchange of such Convertible Securities;
 
                                                     (B)  if  such   Options  or
         Convertible Securities by their terms provide, with the passage of time
         or  otherwise,  for any  change  in the  consideration  payable  to the
         Corporation,  or  change  in the  number  of  shares  of  Common  Stock
         issuable, upon the exercise, conversion or exchange thereof (other than
         under or by reason of provisions designed to protect against dilution),
         the Conversion  Price computed upon the original issue thereof (or upon
         the  occurrence  of  a  record  date  with  respect  thereto)  and  any
         subsequent adjustments based thereon,  shall, upon any such increase or
         decrease becoming effective,  be recomputed to reflect such increase or
         decrease insofar as it affects such Options or the rights of conversion
         or exchange under such Convertible Securities; and
 
                                                     (C)     no     readjustment
         pursuant  to clause (B) above shall have the effect of  increasing  the
         Conversion  Price  to an  amount  which  exceeds  the  lower of (1) the
         Conversion Price on the original  adjustment date or (2) the Conversion
         Price that would have resulted  from any issuance of Additional  Shares
         of  Common  Stock  between  the  original   adjustment  date  and  such
         readjustment date.
 
                                    (iv)  ADJUSTMENT  OF CONVERSION  PRICE  UPON
         ISSUANCE  OF  ADDITIONAL  SHARES  OF  COMMON  STOCK.  In the  event the
         Corporation  shall issue  Additional  Shares of Common Stock (including
         Additional  Shares of Common  Stock  deemed  to be issued  pursuant  to
         Section  3(d)(iii))  without  consideration or for a consideration  per
         share  less than the  Conversion  Price of the  Series A  Preferred  in
         effect  on the  date  of and  immediately  prior  to such  issue  (such
         issuance price being referred to herein as the "Dilution Price"),  then
         and in each such event the  Conversion  Price of the Series A Preferred
         shall be reduced to a price (calculated to the nearest cent) determined
         by multiplying  such Conversion  Price by a fraction,  the numerator of
         which  shall be the  number  of  shares  of  Common  Stock  outstanding
         immediately  prior to such  issue  plus the  number of shares of Common
         Stock which the aggregate consideration received by the Corporation for
         the total number of  Additional  Shares of Common Stock so issued would
         purchase at such Conversion  Price;  and the denominator of which shall
         be the number of shares of Common Stock  outstanding  immediately prior
         to such issue plus the number of such Additional Shares of Common Stock
         so issued;  provided that,  for the purposes of this Section  3(d)(iv),
         all shares of Common Stock issuable upon  conversion of all outstanding
         Series A Preferred and other  classes or series of Preferred  Stock and
         all outstanding  Options  (provided such Options have an exercise price
         below the Conversion Price of the Series A Preferred  immediately prior
         to such  issue)  and  Convertible  Securities  shall  be  deemed  to be
         outstanding,  and,  immediately  after any Additional  Shares of Common
         Stock are deemed issued  pursuant to Section  3(d)(iii) such Additional
         Shares of Common Stock shall be deemed to be outstanding.
 
                                    (v)  DETERMINATION  OF  CONSIDERATION.   For
         purposes  of this  Section  3(d),  the  consideration  received  by the
         Corporation  for the issue of any  Additional  Shares  of Common  Stock
         shall be computed as follows:
 
                                            (1)   CASH   AND   PROPERTY:    Such
         consideration shall:
 
                                       6
<PAGE>
 
                                                     (A)  insofar as it consists
         of cash,  be computed at the  aggregate  amount of cash received by the
         Corporation;
 
                                                     (B)  insofar as it consists
         of property  other than cash,  be computed at the fair value thereof at
         the time of such issue,  as determined by the Board of Directors in the
         good faith exercise of its reasonable business judgment; and
 
                                                     (C) in the event Additional
         Shares of  Common  Stock  are  issued  together  with  other  shares or
         securities or other assets of the Corporation for  consideration  which
         covers  both,  be the  proportion  of such  consideration  so received,
         computed as provided in clauses (A) and (B) above, as determined by the
         Board  of  Directors  in the  good  faith  exercise  of its  reasonable
         business judgment.
 
                                            (2)    OPTIONS    AND    CONVERTIBLE
         SECURITIES. The consideration per share received by the Corporation for
         Additional  Shares of Common Stock deemed to have been issued  pursuant
         to  Section   3(d)(iii)(1),   relating  to  Options   and   Convertible
         Securities, shall be determined by dividing
 
                                                     (A) the  total  amount,  if
         any, received or receivable by the Corporation as consideration for the
         issue of such  Options  or  Convertible  Securities,  plus the  minimum
         aggregate  amount  of  additional  consideration  (as set  forth in the
         instruments relating thereto, without regard to any provision contained
         therein for a subsequent  adjustment of such consideration)  payable to
         the Corporation  upon the exercise of such Options or the conversion or
         exchange of such Convertible Securities,  or in the case of Options for
         Convertible  Securities,  the exercise of such Options for  Convertible
         Securities  and  the   conversion  or  exchange  of  such   Convertible
         Securities, by
 
                                                     (B) the  maximum  number of
         shares  of  Common  Stock  (as set  forth in the  instruments  relating
         thereto,  without  regard  to any  provision  contained  therein  for a
         subsequent  adjustment  of such number)  issuable  upon the exercise of
         such  Options  or  the  conversion  or  exchange  of  such  Convertible
         Securities.
 
                                    (vi) OTHER ADJUSTMENTS.
 
                                            (1) SUBDIVISIONS,  COMBINATIONS,  OR
         CONSOLIDATIONS OF COMMON STOCK. In the event the outstanding  shares of
         Common Stock shall be subdivided,  combined or  consolidated,  by stock
         split,  stock  dividend,  combination or like event,  into a greater or
         lesser number of shares of Common Stock,  the  Conversion  Price of the
         Series A Preferred  in effect  immediately  prior to such  subdivision,
         combination,  consolidation or stock dividend shall,  concurrently with
         the effectiveness of such subdivision, combination or consolidation, be
         proportionately adjusted.
 
                                          (2) RECLASSIFICATIONS. In the case, at
         any time after the date hereof,  of any capital  reorganization  or any
         reclassification  of the  stock  of the  Corporation  (other  than as a
         result of a stock dividend or  subdivision,  split-up or combination of
         shares), or the consolidation or merger of the Corporation with or into
         another person (other than a  consolidation  or merger (A) in which the
         Corporation is the  continuing  entity and which does not result in any
         change in the Common  Stock or (B) which is  treated  as a  liquidation
         pursuant to Section 2(c)),  the shares of the Series A Preferred shall,
         after such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation or merger be
         convertible  into the  kind  and  number  of  shares  of stock or other
         securities  or property of the  Corporation  or otherwise to which such
         holder  would  have  been  entitled  if   immediately   prior  to
 
                                       7
<PAGE>
 
         such reorganization,  reclassification,  consolidation or merger he had
         converted his shares of the Series A Preferred  into Common Stock.  The
         provisions  of  this  clause   3(d)(vi)(2)  shall  similarly  apply  to
         successive   reorganizations,   reclassifications,   consolidations  or
         mergers.
 
                           (e)   CERTIFICATE   AS  TO   ADJUSTMENTS.   Upon  the
occurrence of each  adjustment or  readjustment  of the Conversion  Price of the
Series A Preferred  pursuant to this Section 3, the  Corporation  at its expense
shall promptly  compute such  adjustment or  readjustment in accordance with the
terms  hereof and furnish to each  holder of Series A  Preferred  a  certificate
setting forth such  adjustment or  readjustment  and showing in detail the facts
upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based. The Corporation shall, upon
the written request at any time of any holder of Series A Preferred,  furnish or
cause to be furnished to such holder a like  certificate  setting forth (i) such
adjustments  and  readjustments,  (ii)  the  Conversion  Price  of the  Series A
Preferred at the time in effect,  and (iii) the number of shares of Common Stock
and the amount,  if any, of other  property  which at the time would be received
upon the conversion of the Series A Preferred.
 
                           (f) STATUS OF CONVERTED  STOCK. In case any shares of
Series A Preferred shall be converted  pursuant to Section 3 hereof,  the shares
so converted shall be canceled,  shall not be reissuable and shall cease to be a
part of the authorized capital stock of the Corporation.
 
                           (g)  FRACTIONAL  SHARES.  In lieu  of any  fractional
shares to which he holder of Series A Preferred would otherwise be entitled upon
conversion,  the Corporation shall pay cash equal to such fraction multiplied by
the fair market value of one share of Common Stock as determined by the Board of
Directors in the good faith exercise of its reasonable business judgment.
 
                           (h) MISCELLANEOUS.
 
                                    (i) All  calculations  under this  Section 3
         shall  be made to the  nearest  cent or to the  nearest  one  hundredth
         (1/100) of a share, as the case may be.
 
                                    (ii)  The  holders  of at  least  50% of the
         outstanding  Series A Preferred  shall have the right to challenge  any
         determination  by the Board of Directors of fair market value  pursuant
         to this  Section 3, in which  case such  determination  of fair  market
         value shall be made by an independent appraiser selected jointly by the
         Board  of  Directors  and the  challenging  parties,  the  cost of such
         appraisal to be borne equally by the  Corporation  and the  challenging
         parties.
 
                                    (iii) No adjustment in the Conversion  Price
         of the Series A Preferred need be made if such adjustment  would result
         in a change in such Conversion Price of less than $0.01. Any adjustment
         of less than $0.01 which is not made shall be carried forward and shall
         be made at the  time of and  together  with any  subsequent  adjustment
         which, on a cumulative basis, amounts to an adjustment of $0.01 or more
         in such Conversion Price.
 
                           (I) NO IMPAIRMENT.  The Corporation  will not through
any reorganization, recapitalization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger,
dissolution, issue or sale of securities or any other voluntary action, avoid or
seek to avoid the  observance or  performance of any of the terms to be observed
or performed  hereunder by the Corporation,  but will at all times in good faith
assist in the  carrying out of all the  provisions  of this Section 3 and in the
taking of all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect
the conversion rights of the holders of Series A Preferred against impairment.
 
                           (J)  RESERVATION OF STOCK  ISSUABLE UPON  CONVERSION.
The  Corporation  shall  at all  times  reserve  and keep  available  out of its
authorized  but  unissued  shares of Common  Stock,  solely  for
 
                                       8
<PAGE>
 
the purpose of  effecting  the  conversion  of the shares of Series A Preferred,
such  number  of its  shares  of  Common  Stock  as shall  from  time to time be
sufficient  to  effect  the  conversion  of all  outstanding  shares of Series A
Preferred. If at any time the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common
Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the  conversion of all then  outstanding
shares of Series A Preferred, the Corporation will take such corporate action as
may, in the opinion of its counsel,  be necessary to increase its authorized but
unissued  shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient
for such purpose.
 
                  (4) VOTING RIGHTS.  Except as otherwise  required by law or by
Section 8 hereof,  the holders of all Series A Preferred issued and outstanding,
in the aggregate,  shall be entitled to the number of votes equal to (a) sixteen
percent  (16%) of the number of shares of Common  Stock at the  record  date for
determination  of the stockholders  entitled to vote on such matters,  minus (b)
the number of votes  attributable  to shares of Common Stock  previously  issued
upon  conversion of such Series A Preferred,  if any, or, if no such record date
is  established,  at the  date  such  vote is taken or any  written  consent  of
stockholders  is  solicited,  such votes to be counted  together  with all other
shares  of  stock  of the  Corporation  having  general  voting  power  and  not
separately  as a class.  Fractional  votes by the  holders of Series A Preferred
shall not, however, be permitted,  and any fractional voting rights shall (after
aggregating  all shares  into which  shares of Series A  Preferred  held by each
holder could be converted) be rounded to the nearest whole number.
 
                  (5) REDEMPTION.
 
                           (a)  At  any  time  after   January  18,  1996,   the
Corporation  may, by giving a Notice of Redemption (as defined below),  elect to
redeem all (and not less than all) of the Series A Preferred  outstanding on the
Redemption Date (as defined below) out of funds legally available therefor.  The
Corporation  shall pay in cash therefor a sum per share equal to three times the
Conversion  Value,  together  with all accrued or declared but unpaid  dividends
(including any interest accrued thereon) calculated as of the earlier of (i) ten
(10) days  following  the Notice of Redemption or (ii) the date of conversion of
the Series A Preferred  pursuant to Section 5(b)(ii) with respect to such shares
as of the date of the redemption (collectively the "Redemption Value").
 
                           (b)  Any  notice  of   redemption   (the  "Notice  of
Redemption")  given by the Corporation  shall be delivered by mail,  first class
postage  prepaid,  to each  holder of record  (at the close of  business  on the
business day  preceding the day on which notice is given) of Series A Preferred,
at the address last shown on the records of the  Corporation  for such holder or
given by the holder to the Corporation, for the purpose of notifying such holder
of the redemption to be effected.  The Notice of Redemption shall specify a date
(the  "Redemption  Date") between 45 and 75 days after the mailing of the Notice
of Redemption on which the Series A Preferred then outstanding shall be redeemed
and the place at which  payment may be  obtained,  which shall be the  principal
offices of the Corporation or such other place as shall be mutually agreeable to
the Corporation and holders of a majority of the Series A Preferred.  The Notice
of  Redemption  shall call upon each holder of Series A Preferred  to either (i)
surrender to the Corporation,  in the manner and at the place  designated,  such
holder's  certificate or certificates  representing the shares to be redeemed or
(ii) convert such Series A Preferred  into Common Stock prior to the  Redemption
Date in accordance with the provisions of Section 3 above.
 
                           (c) On the Redemption Date, the Corporation shall pay
by  cash  or  check  to the  order  of the  person  whose  name  appears  on the
certificate  or  certificates  of the Series A Preferred that (i) shall not have
been converted pursuant to Section 3 hereof and (ii) shall have been surrendered
to the  Corporation  in the manner and at the place  designated in the Notice of
Redemption,  the Redemption  Value, and thereupon each  surrendered  certificate
shall be canceled.
 
                                       9
<PAGE>
 
                           (d) If the funds of the Corporation legally available
for  redemption of the Series A Preferred are  insufficient  to redeem the total
number of shares of Series A Preferred  outstanding on the Redemption  Date, the
Corporation shall not have the right to redeem any of the Series A Preferred.
 
                           (e) From and after the Redemption Date,  unless there
shall have been a default in payment of the Redemption  Value, all rights of the
holders  of shares of  Series A  Preferred  (except  the  right to  receive  the
Redemption  Value  subsequent  to the  Redemption  Date upon  surrender of their
certificate or certificates)  shall cease with respect to such shares,  and such
shares shall not thereafter be transferred on the books of the Corporation or be
deemed to be outstanding for any purpose whatsoever.
 
                  (6) NOTICES OF RECORD DATE.  In the event of any taking by the
Corporation  of a record  of the  holders  of any  class of  securities  for the
purpose of  determining  the  holders  thereof  who are  entitled to receive any
dividend  or  other  distribution,  any  right to  subscribe  for,  purchase  or
otherwise  acquire any shares of stock of any class or any other  securities  or
property,  or to receive any other  right,  the  Corporation  shall mail to each
holder of  Series A  Preferred,  at least  twenty  (20)  days  prior to the date
specified  therein,  a notice specifying the date on which any such record is to
be taken for the purpose of such dividend, distribution or right, and the amount
and character of such dividend, distribution or right.
 
                  (7)  NOTICES.  Any notice  required by the  provisions  of the
Articles of Incorporation to be given to the holders of Series A Preferred shall
be deemed given when deposited in the United States mail,  postage prepaid,  and
addressed to each holder of record at his or her address  appearing on the books
of the Corporation.
 
                  (8) PROTECTIVE PROVISIONS.
 
                           (a) APPROVAL OF CERTAIN TRANSACTIONS WHILE ANY SERIES
A PREFERRED  IS  OUTSTANDING.  So long as any shares of Series A  Preferred  are
outstanding,  the Corporation shall not, without first obtaining the approval of
the holders of at least a majority of the Series A Preferred  then  outstanding,
voting as a separate class, take any action that:
 
                                    (i)  alters  the  rights,   preferences   or
         privileges of the Series A Preferred;
 
                                    (ii)  increases or decreases the  authorized
         number of shares of Series A Preferred or any series of Preferred Stock
         of the Corporation;
 
                                    (iii)  creates  any new  class or  series of
         shares that has a  preference  over or is on a parity with the Series A
         Preferred with respect to voting, dividends or liquidation preferences;
 
                                    (iv) reclassifies stock into shares having a
         preference  over or parity with the Series A Preferred  with respect to
         voting, dividends or liquidation preferences;
 
                                    (v)   authorizes   any   dividend  or  other
         distribution  with  respect to the Common  Stock (other than a dividend
         payable in Common Stock or as authorized by Section 1);
 
                                    (vi)  repurchases,  redeems or  retires  any
         shares of  capital  stock of the  Corporation  other than  pursuant  to
         contractual  rights  to  repurchase  shares  of  Common  Stock  held by
         employees,   directors  or  consultants  of  the   Corporation  or  its
         subsidiaries  upon  termination  of their  employment  or  services  or
         pursuant to the exercise of a  contractual  right of first refusal held
         by the Corporation.

LEAST 64,492 SERIES A PREFERRED  OUTSTANDING.  As long as at least 64,492 shares
of Series A Preferred are  outstanding  (as adjusted for any  Recapitalization),
the Corporation  shall not,  without first obtaining the approval of the holders
of at least a majority of the Series A Preferred then  outstanding,  voting as a
separate class, take any action that:
 
                                    (i) results in the  consolidation  or merger
         with or into any other corporation  (other than a merger approved under
         Section  8(b)(iv)  below)  or the  sale or other  transfer  in a single
         transaction or a series of related transactions of all or substantially
         all of the  assets of the  Corporation,  or  otherwise  results  in the
         reorganization  of the  Corporation;  provided,  however,  that no such
         approval shall be necessary if any of the above transactions results in
         cash  proceeds  or equity  securities  that are freely  tradeable  on a
         recognized  public  market to the  holders of Series A  Preferred  of a
         value  of  at  least  (i)  two  times  the  Conversion  Value  if  such
         transaction(s)  occurs prior to or on January 18,  1996,  or (ii) three
         times the  Conversion  Value if after  such date (as  adjusted  for any
         Recapitalization);
 
                                    (ii) materially  changes the business of the
         Corporation to a business outside
 
         the field of telecommunications;
 
                                    (iii)  issues  any  Common  Stock  or  other

         indebtedness  in excess of that obtained under credit  facilities  from
         credit  sources  regularly  engaged  in  lending  for  working  capital
         purposes,  except for the refinancing of any existing  indebtedness and
