3. Independent Contractor.
 
      3.1 Independent  Contractor Term.  Subject to the terms and conditions set
forth herein,  from January 1, 2007 through December 31, 2013 (the "Term"),  the
Company shall engage Donovan as an independent  contractor to personally provide
services to the Company as set forth herein.  During the Term: (a) Donovan shall
serve as a strategic  advisor to the Company;  (b) Donovan  shall  cooperate and
assist  in the  transition  of the  responsibilities  of the  CEO to the new CEO

services  as may be  requested  from  time to time  by the  Company's  executive
officers or the Board.
 
      3.2 Independent  Contractor Status.  The Company and Donovan  specifically
agree that after December 31, 2006,  Donovan shall be an independent  contractor
and not an employee of the  Company.  As such,  the Company will not withhold or
pay on behalf of Donovan,  income tax,  employment tax,  workers'  compensation,
unemployment  compensation or other similar taxes or benefits. In the event that
a court of competent jurisdiction shall decide,  notwithstanding this Section 3,
that such sums are due, or should  Donovan be deemed to be an employee,  Donovan
shall be personally liable for all such taxes, sums,  interest or penalties that
may be due thereby. This provision shall be binding upon the successors,  heirs,
executors and administrators of the parties.  During the Term, Donovan shall not
have any authority,  and shall not hold himself out as having the authority,  to
bind the Company or otherwise use the Company's name in any way not specifically
authorized by the Company.  During the Term, Donovan shall not represent that he
is an employee of the Company.
 
      4. Best Efforts.  During the Term of this Agreement,  Donovan shall devote
his best efforts to the performance of his duties under this Agreement and shall
perform them faithfully,  diligently, and competently and in a manner consistent
with all policies of the Company.  Donovan  recognizes  that the Company  places
significant  importance  on its  policies  and  practices  regarding  the way it
operates its business and how it treats its  employees,  customers  and vendors,
including its business ethics, anti-discrimination,  anti-harassment,  and other
related  policies.  Donovan agrees that in doing  business with the Company,  he
will comport himself  consistent with the Company's policies and will not engage
in any conduct that would  conflict with the Company's  policies or practices in
those areas. Donovan agrees to make himself available to the Company at any time
to provide the services reasonably requested hereunder. Donovan shall not engage
in any activities  outside the scope of this Agreement for any other individuals
or entities if such activities  could  reasonably be expected to detract from or
interfere  with the  fulfillment  of his  responsibilities  or duties under this
Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if Donovan
breaches his obligations hereunder, Donovan shall forfeit his entitlement to any
further  compensation  due under this  Agreement  and shall only be  entitled to
accrued and unpaid compensation.

as an employee of the Company,  Donovan  will have the right to continue  health
insurance  coverage under the Company's  medical insurance plan for himself and,
to the extent available under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act
("COBRA"), his dependents,  if any, at his own expense in accordance with COBRA,
if Donovan takes all actions necessary to elect to continue such coverage.
 
      5.3 Golf Club.  The  Company  shall pay (or  reimburse)  Donovan's  annual
membership  dues in a golf club of Donovan's  choice through  December 31, 2006,

such amounts against amounts due and payable by the Company to Donovan.
 
7.  Termination.  Notwithstanding  anything to the  contrary  contained  in this
Agreement, this Agreement may be terminated at any time as follows:
 
      7.1  Termination by the Company for Cause.  The Company may terminate this
Agreement for Cause (as defined  below),  as provided  below.  In the event of a
termination  for Cause,  the Company shall be  responsible  under this Agreement
only for  accrued  and unpaid  compensation  and  benefits  through  the date of
termination.  For purposes of this  Agreement  the  following  shall  constitute
"Cause" for such  termination:  (i) conviction of or plea of nolo  contendere by
Donovan for (A) felony or (B) any misdemeanor involving moral turpitude, deceit,
dishonesty or fraud; (ii) Donovan's  violation of the policies and procedures of
the Company,  including,  without  limitation,  the Company's policies on sexual
harassment,  discrimination and transactions in the Company's securities,  as in
effect from time to time; (iii) Donovan's gross negligence,  willful misconduct,
fraud or  misappropriation  of assets; (iv) material breach by Donovan of any of
Donovan's  obligations under this Agreement;  or (v) any negative or disparaging
statements   by  Donovan  about  the  Company,   its   management  or  principal
shareholders.  Prior to  termination  of this  Agreement  for Cause  pursuant to
subsections  (ii), (iii), (iv) or (v), the Company shall provide Donovan written
notice of any violation breach or failure and, if possible of cure, Donovan will
have 10 business days after receipt of written notice to cure any such violation
or breach.  If terminated  pursuant to subsection (i) or if no cure is possible,
the termination shall be effective upon the date of written notice to Donovan.
 
      7.2  Termination by the Company  Without Cause.  The Company may terminate
this Agreement  without Cause by a vote of the Board.  Such termination  without
Cause shall be effective  immediately  upon written  notice to Donovan of such a
vote by the Board. If this Agreement is terminated by the Company without Cause,
then Donovan shall be entitled to receive  payments due under this Agreement for
the remainder of the Term in accordance with Section 9.2.
 
      7.3  Death.  If  Donovan  dies at any time  during  the  Term,  then  this
Agreement  shall  terminate  and  Donovan's  estate shall be entitled to receive
payments due under this  Agreement  for the  remainder of the Term in accordance
with Section 9.2.

<PAGE>
 
      7.4  Disability.  If Donovan shall become  disabled at any time during the
Term and is substantially unable to perform under this Agreement, the Board may,
upon 30 days written notice to Donovan and in the sole discretion of the Company
terminate this  Agreement.  In the event of such  termination,  Donovan shall be
entitled to receive  payments due under this  Agreement for the remainder of the
Term in  accordance  with Section 9.2. For purposes of this  Agreement,  Donovan
shall be  deemed  to be  "disabled"  if,  due to  Donovan's  physical  or mental
disability,  he has been  substantially  unable to perform his duties for ninety
(90)  continuous  and  consecutive  days at any  time  during  the  Term of this
Agreement.  Donovan  shall be considered  to have been  substantially  unable to
perform  his  duties  hereunder  if he is either (i)  unable to  reasonably  and
effectively  carry out his duties with reasonable  accommodations by the Company
or (ii) unable to reasonably  and  effectively  carry out his duties because any
reasonable  accommodation  that may be required  would  cause the Company  undue
hardship.
 
8. Termination Benefits.
 
      8.1 Termination of Benefits.  Upon termination of Donovan's services as an
employee,  benefits  under  any  employee  benefit  plans of the  Company  shall
terminate  as  provided  in the terms of the  applicable  plans.  Subject to the
approval of the Board's  Compensation  Committee  and to the extent  permissible
under the  Company's  relevant  Option  Plan,  84,538 of the  140,896  Donovan's
unvested  options,  which would otherwise have vested  February 19, 2008,  shall
vest as of December 31, 2006. All other unvested  options shall remain  unvested
and shall,  based on termination of his  employment,  be cancelled.  Donovan may
exercise  any  vested  options  within  the  periods  following  termination  of
employment  set forth in the  relevant  plans  and  agreements  under  which the
options were granted.
 
      8.2 Payment of  Termination  Benefits.  With respect to payments due under
Section 7.2, 7.3 or 7.4 that are unpaid as of the date of termination,  death or
disability,  such payments shall be paid in periodic  installments in accordance
with the Company's usual practices for its senior executives; provided, however,
that if Section  409A(a)(2)(B) would apply to Donovan at the date of termination
of  employment,  no such  payments of Salary  shall be made during the six month
period following the effective date of Donovan's termination; provided, further,
that such  payment  which would have  otherwise  been made during such six month
period  shall be paid in one lump sum payment  upon the  expiration  of such six
month period.  Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, in the event of the death
of Donovan, any unpaid payments under Section 7.2, 7.3 or 7.4 shall continue and
be paid to the estate of Donovan for the same duration and in the same manner as
would have been paid to Donovan if he were alive.  The  payments  under  Section
7.2,  7.3 or 7.4 shall be offset by any  amounts  owed to the Company by Donovan
ratably over the anticipated period during which such payments will be paid.
 
      8.3  Insurance.  The  Company  currently  maintains  an  insurance  policy
insuring  Donovan's  life. If requested by Donovan prior to March 15, 2007,  the
Company shall take such steps  necessary to transfer such policy to Donovan upon
payment  by  Donovan in  immediately  available  funds of the cash value of such
policy on the date of transfer  together with any amounts  payable in connection
with such transfer.

9. Non-Competition; Protection of Confidential Information; Etc.
 
      9.1 Rationale for Restrictions. Donovan agrees that his services hereunder
are of a special,  unique,  extraordinary  and intellectual  character,  and his
position with the Company  places him in a position of confidence and trust with
the clients,  customers,  suppliers,  vendors,  contractors and employees of the
Company and/or of any joint venture, partnership, trust or other entity in which
the  Company  has  a  direct  or  indirect  interest   (collectively,   "Related
Entities").  Donovan further  acknowledges  that the rendering of services under
this Agreement  necessarily  requires the disclosure to Donovan of  Confidential
Information (defined below) of the Company and/or Related Entities.  Donovan and
the Company  agree that in the course of his duties  hereunder,  Donovan has and
will continue to develop a personal relationship with the Company's clients, and
a knowledge of these clients,  affairs and requirements which may constitute the
Company's primary and only contact with such clients.  Donovan acknowledges that
the  Company's  relationships  with its  established  clientele may therefore be
placed in Donovan's hands in confidence and trust.  Donovan  consequently agrees
that it is  reasonable  and  necessary  for the  protection  of the goodwill and
business of the Company and/or Related  Entities that Donovan make the covenants
contained herein,  that the covenants are a material  inducement for the Company
to engage  Donovan's  services  and to enter into this  Agreement,  and that the
covenants are given as an integral part of and incident to this Agreement.
 
      9.2  Non-Competition  In  Related  Business.  Provided  that  the  Company
performs  in all  material  respects  its  obligations  under  the terms of this
Agreement,  Donovan shall not,  directly or indirectly,  during the Term of this
Agreement  and for a period of two years  thereafter,  directly  or  indirectly,
enter into the employment of, render any services to, engage,  manage,  operate,
join, or own, lend money or otherwise  offer other  assistance to or participate
in or be connected with, as an officer, director,  employee,  principal,  agent,
creditor,   proprietor,   representative,   stockholder,   partner,   associate,
consultant  or  otherwise,  any person or entity  that  directly  or  indirectly
competes  with or is in any  similar  business  to that  of the  Company  and/or
Related  Entities.  The  geographic  scope of this  covenant is limited to those
geographic  markets in which the Company and/or  Related  Entities had conducted
business or had taken steps to commence  conducting  business during the Term of
this Agreement.
 
      9.3  Solicitation  of Employees and  Customers.  Provided that the Company
performs  in all  material  respects  its  obligations  under  the terms of this
Agreement,  Donovan shall not, at any time during the Term of this Agreement and
for a period of two years  thereafter,  whether  for his own  account or for the
account of any person or entity,  attempt to  solicit,  endeavor  to entice away
from  the  Company  or  Related  Entities,   or  otherwise  interfere  with  any
relationship of the Company or Related Entities with (i) any person  (including,
but not limited to, any independent  contractor or representative) who is or was
employed by or  otherwise  engaged to perform  services  for the Company  and/or
Related Entities,  during the Term of this Agreement,  or (ii) any person who is
or was a customer or client of the Company  and/or Related  Entities  during the
Term of this Agreement.
 
      9.4  Confidential  Information.  Donovan  agrees  that he will not use any
Confidential  Information  for  Donovan's own purposes or for the benefit of any
other person or entity or
 
 
                                       6
<PAGE>
 
disclose any  Confidential  Information  to any other person or entity except as
may be required by law. As used in this  Agreement,  "Confidential  Information"
shall  mean  financial  information,  reports  and  forecasts,  studies,  plans,
reports,  designs,  surveys, and analyses,  sketches,  drawings, notes, records,
memoranda,  computer-generated  data,  or  documents,  and all  other  nonpublic
information  relating to the business  activities of the Company  and/or Related
Entities,  including,  without  limitation,  all methods,  processes,  formulas,
techniques,  equipment,  research  data,  experiments,   technical,  commercial,
marketing and sales information,  personnel data, computer software, contracting
systems, sources of supply,  patentable or unpatentable  inventions,  methods of
operation, customer lists, employee lists, supplier lists, financial data, trade
secrets,  and the like which presently or, in the future,  are in the possession
of the Company and/or Related Entities. Said Confidential  Information may be in
either human or computer readable form, including, but not limited to, software,
source code, hex code, or any other form.
 
      9.5 Scope of  Covenant.  If any  covenant  contained  in this Section 9 is
unenforceable because of the scope of business,  duration or geographic scope of
such  provision,  the parties agree that the court,  making such  determination,
shall have the power to reduce the scope of business, duration and/or geographic
scope to the maximum enforceable by law and, in its reduced form, such provision
shall be enforceable.
 
10. Miscellaneous Provisions.
 
      10.1  Donovan  Representations.  Donovan  represents  and  warrants to the
Company (i) that this Agreement  constitutes  his valid and binding  obligation,
enforceable  against him in  accordance  with its terms;  (ii) that  neither the
execution nor delivery of this Agreement or the performance by him of any of his
covenants  hereunder will constitute a default under any contract,  agreement or
obligation  to which he is a party  or by which he or any of his  properties  is
bound;  (iii)  that  there  are  no  lawsuits,   arbitration  actions  or  other
proceedings (equitable,  legal,  administrative or otherwise) pending or (to the

obligations hereunder;  and (iv) that no consent,  approval or authorization of,
or notification to any other person or entity is required in connection with the
execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement by him.
 
      10.2  Litigation and Regulatory  Cooperation.  Donovan agrees to cooperate
fully with the  Company in the defense or  prosecution  of any claims or actions
now in existence  or which may be brought in the future  against or on behalf of
the Company which relate to events or  occurrences  that  transpired  while,  or
relate  to  periods  during  which,  Donovan  was  employed  or  serving  as  an
independent  contractor.  Donovan's  full  cooperation  in connection  with such
claims or actions shall include,  but not be limited to, being available to meet
with counsel to prepare for discovery or trial and to act as a witness on behalf
of the Company at mutually convenient times. During the Term, Donovan also shall
cooperate fully with the Company in connection with any  investigation or review
by any federal, state or local regulatory authority as any such investigation or
review  relates to events or  occurrences  that  transpired  while  Donovan  was
employed or serving as an independent  contractor.  The Company shall  reimburse
Donovan for any reasonable out of pocket  expenses  incurred in connection  with
Donovan's performance of
 
 
                                       7
<PAGE>
 
obligations pursuant to this Section 10.2. However, in the event that Donovan is
terminated for Cause pursuant to Section 7.1 and Donovan is no longer  receiving
payments  hereunder,  this  Section  10.2  shall no longer  apply and  continued
cooperation with the Company shall no longer be required.
 
      10.3 Integration,  Waiver and Severability.  This Agreement sets forth the
entire agreement  between the parties with respect to the matters covered herein
and supersedes all prior agreements,  whether oral or written, including without
limitation  the  Employment  Agreements  between the  Company and Donovan  dated
December 19, 2001 and June 28, 2006. No waiver or modification of this Agreement
or of any part  contained  herein  shall be valid  unless  in  writing  and duly
executed  by Donovan  and  approved  by the Board.  No evidence of any waiver or
modification  shall be  offered  or  received  in  evidence  of any  proceeding,
arbitration,  or  litigation  between  the  parties  hereto  arising  out  of or
affecting this Agreement, or the rights or obligations of the parties hereunder,
unless such waiver or  modification  is in writing,  duly executed as aforesaid.
The  failure  of either  party at any time to require  performance  by the other
party of any provision  hereunder shall in no way affect the right of that party
thereafter  to enforce the same,  or to enforce any of the other  provisions  in
this  Agreement;  nor shall the  waiver  by  either  party of the  breach of any
provision  hereof  be taken or held to be a waiver of any  subsequent  breach of
such  provision  or as a waiver of the  provision  itself.  All  agreements  and
covenants  contained  herein are severable and in the event any of them shall be
held to be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, this Agreement shall be
interpreted as if such invalid terms or covenants were not contained herein.
 
      10.4 Benefit and Assignability.  This Agreement shall bind Donovan and the
Company and their respective  successors and permitted  assigns.  This Agreement
requires  the  personal  services  of Donovan and cannot be assigned by Donovan.
Donovan  agrees  to  provide  his  written  consent  to the  assignment  of this
Agreement,  including,  without limitation, the restrictive covenants herein, to
any successor or assign of the Company  provided that the transfer or assignment
of this Agreement shall not materially expand or alter the restrictive covenants
contained  herein.  Donovan  agrees not to delegate  his  obligations  or duties
hereunder or any portion thereof.
 
      10.5  Remedies for Breach of the  Agreement.  Donovan  consents and agrees
that if he violates any covenant contained in this Agreement, the Company and/or
Related Entities would sustain irreparable harm and,  therefore,  in addition to
any other  remedies  which may be  available to it, the Company  and/or  Related
Entities shall be entitled to an injunction  restraining Donovan from committing
or  continuing  any such  violation of this  Agreement.  Donovan also agrees and
acknowledges  that  his use of  trade  secrets,  client  lists  or  Confidential
Information,  or the direct  solicitation  of  existing  clients of the  Company
and/or Related Entities in a manner contrary to this Agreement will give rise to
irreparable injury that may specifically be enjoined.  Nothing in this Agreement
shall be construed as  prohibiting  the Company  and/or  Related  Entities  from
pursuing any other remedy or remedies including, without limitation, recovery of
damages.  Donovan  acknowledges  that  Related  Entities  have rights under this
Agreement and that they may enforce these rights as third party beneficiaries.
