SECTION 6.  TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF AWARDS OR SALES.
 
     (a) Stock Purchase Agreement. Each award or sale of Shares under the Plan
(other than upon exercise of an Option) shall be evidenced by a Stock Purchase
Agreement between the Offeree and the Company. Such award or sale shall be
subject to all applicable terms and conditions of the Plan and may be subject to
any other terms and conditions which are not inconsistent with the Plan and
which the Committee deems appropriate for inclusion in a Stock Purchase
Agreement. The provisions of the various Stock Purchase Agreements entered into
under the Plan need not be identical.
 
     (b) Duration of Offers and Nontransferability of Rights. Any right to
acquire Shares under the Plan (other than an Option) shall automatically expire
if not exercised by the Offeree within 30 days after the grant of such right was
communicated to the Offeree by the Committee. Such right shall not be
transferable and shall be exercisable only by the Offeree to whom such right was
granted.
 
     (c) Purchase Price. The Purchase Price of Shares to be offered under the
Plan shall not be less than the par value of such Shares. Subject to the
preceding sentence, the Purchase Price shall be determined by the Committee at
its sole discretion. The Purchase Price shall be payable in a form described in
Section 8.
 
     (d) Withholding Taxes. As a condition to the award, purchase, vesting or
sale of Shares, the Offeree shall make such arrangements as the Committee may
require for the satisfaction of any federal, state, local or foreign withholding
tax obligations that may arise in connection with such Shares. The Committee may
permit the Offeree to satisfy all or part of his or her tax obligations related
to such Shares by having the Company withhold a portion of any Shares that
otherwise would be issued to him or her or by surrendering any Shares that
previously were acquired by him or her. The Shares withheld or surrendered shall
be valued at their Fair Market Value on the date when taxes otherwise would be
withheld in cash. The payment of taxes by assigning Shares to the Company, if
permitted by the Committee, shall be subject to such restrictions as the
Committee may impose, including any restrictions required by rules of the
Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
     (e) Restrictions on Transfer of Shares. Any Shares awarded or sold under
the Plan shall be subject to such special forfeiture conditions, rights of
repurchase, rights of first refusal and other transfer restrictions as the
Committee may determine. Such restrictions shall be set forth in the applicable
Stock Purchase Agreement and shall apply in addition to any general restrictions
that may apply to all holders of Shares.
 
SECTION 7.  TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF OPTIONS.
 
     (a) Stock Option Agreement. Each grant of an Option under the Plan shall be
evidenced by a Stock Option Agreement between the Optionee and the Company. Such
Option shall be subject to all applicable terms and conditions of the Plan and
may be subject to any other terms and conditions which are not inconsistent with
the Plan and which the Committee deems appropriate for inclusion in a Stock
Option Agreement. The provisions of the various Stock Option Agreements entered
into under the Plan need not be identical.
 
     (b) Number of Shares. Each Stock Option Agreement shall specify the number
of Shares that are subject to the Option and shall provide for the adjustment of
such number in accordance with Section 9. The Stock Option Agreement shall also
specify whether the Option is an ISO or a
 
                                       6
 
 
<PAGE>
 
Nonstatutory Option. Options granted to any Optionee in a single calendar year
shall in no event cover more than 800,000 Shares, subject to adjustment in
accordance with Section 9.
 
     (c) Exercise Price. Each Stock Option Agreement shall specify the Exercise
Price. The Exercise Price of an ISO shall not be less than 100 percent of the
Fair Market Value of a Share on the date of grant, and a higher percentage may
be required by Section 4(b). The Exercise Price of a Nonstatutory Option shall
not be less than 100 percent of the Fair Market Value of a Share on the date of
grant. Subject to the preceding two sentences, the Exercise Price under any
Option shall be determined by the Committee at its sole discretion. The Exercise
Price shall be payable in a form described in Section 8.
 
     (d) Withholding Taxes. As a condition to the exercise of an Option, the
Optionee shall make such arrangements as the Committee may require for the
satisfaction of any federal, state, local or foreign withholding tax obligations
that may arise in connection with such exercise. The Optionee shall also make
such arrangements as the Committee may require for the satisfaction of any
federal, state, local or foreign withholding tax obligations that may arise in
connection with the disposition of Shares acquired by exercising an Option. The
Committee may permit the Optionee to satisfy all or part of his or her tax
obligations related to the Option by having the Company withhold a portion of
any Shares that otherwise would be issued to him or her or by surrendering any
Shares that previously were acquired by him or her. Such Shares shall be valued
at their Fair Market Value on the date when taxes otherwise would be withheld in
cash. The payment of taxes by assigning Shares to the Company, if permitted by
the Committee, shall be subject to such restrictions as the Committee may
impose, including any restrictions required by rules of the Securities and
Exchange Commission.
 
     (e) Exercisability. Each Stock Option Agreement shall specify the date when
all or any installment of the Option is to become exercisable. A Stock Option
Agreement may provide for accelerated exercisability in the event of the
Optionee's death, Total and Permanent Disability or retirement or other events.
 
     (f) Effect of Change in Control. The Committee may determine, at the time
of granting an Option or thereafter, that such Option shall become exercisable
on an accelerated basis in the event that a Change in Control occurs with
respect to the Company. If the Committee finds that there is a reasonable
possibility that, within the succeeding six months, a Change in Control will
occur with respect to the Company, then the Committee may determine that all
outstanding Options shall be exercisable on an accelerated basis.
 
     (g) Term. The Stock Option Agreement shall specify the term of the Option.
The term shall not exceed 10 years from the date of grant, except as otherwise
provided in Section 4(b). Subject to the preceding sentence, the Committee at
its sole discretion shall determine when an Option is to expire.
 
     (h) Nontransferability. Except as may be provided in the applicable Stock
Option Agreement with respect to a Nonstatutory Option, no Option shall be
transferable by the Optionee other than by will, by beneficiary designation
delivered to the Company, or by the laws of descent and distribution. An Option
may be exercised during the lifetime of the Optionee only by the Optionee or by
the Optionee's guardian or legal representative. No Option or interest therein
may be transferred, assigned, pledged or hypothecated by the Optionee during his
or her lifetime, whether by operation of law or otherwise, or be made subject to
execution, attachment or similar process.

     (i) Termination of Service (Except by Death). Except as may be provided in
the applicable Stock Option Agreement, if an Optionee's Service terminates for
any reason other than the Optionee's death, then such Optionee's Option(s) shall
expire on the earliest of the following occasions:
 
          (i) The expiration date determined pursuant to Subsection (g) above;
 
          (ii) The date 90 days after the termination of the Optionee's Service
     for any reason other than Total and Permanent Disability; or
 
          (iii) The date six months after the termination of the Optionee's
     Service by reason of Total and Permanent Disability.
 
The Optionee may exercise all or part of his or her Option(s) at any time before
the expiration of such Option(s) under the preceding sentence, but only to the
extent that such Option(s) had become exercisable before the Optionee's Service
terminated or became exercisable as a result of the termination. The balance of
such Option(s) shall lapse when the Optionee's Service terminates. In the event
that the Optionee dies after the termination of the Optionee's Service but
before the expiration of the Optionee's Option(s), all or part of such Option(s)
may be exercised (prior to expiration) by the executors or administrators of the
Optionee's estate or by any person who has acquired such Option(s) directly from
the Optionee by bequest, beneficiary designation or inheritance, but only to the
extent that such Option(s) had become exercisable before the Optionee's Service
terminated or became exercisable as a result of the termination.
 
     (j) Leaves of Absence. Except as may be provided in the applicable Stock
Option Agreement, for purposes of Subsection (i) above, Service shall be deemed
to continue while the Optionee is on military leave, sick leave or other bona
fide leave of absence (as determined by the Committee). The foregoing
notwithstanding, in the case of an ISO granted under the Plan, Service shall not
be deemed to continue beyond the first 90 days of such leave, unless the
Optionee's reemployment rights are guaranteed by statute or by contract.
 
     (k) Death of Optionee. Except as may be provided in the applicable Stock
Option Agreement, if an Optionee dies while he or she is in Service, then such
Optionee's Option(s) shall expire on the earlier of the following dates:
 
          (i) The expiration date determined pursuant to Subsection (g) above;
     or
 
          (ii) The date six months after the Optionee's death.
 
All or part of the Optionee's Option(s) may be exercised at any time before the
expiration of such Option(s) under the preceding sentence by the executors or
administrators of the Optionee's estate or by any person who has acquired such
Option(s) directly from the Optionee by bequest, beneficiary designation or
inheritance, but only to the extent that such Option(s) had become exercisable
before the Optionee's death or became exercisable as a result of the Optionee's
death. The balance of such Option(s) shall lapse when the Optionee dies.
 
     (l) No Rights as a Stockholder. An Optionee, or a transferee of an
Optionee, shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to any Shares
covered by his or her Option until he or she
 
                                       8
 
 
<PAGE>
 
becomes entitled, pursuant to the terms of such Option, to receive such Shares.
No adjustments shall be made, except as provided in Section 9.
 
     (m) Modification, Extension and Assumption of Options. Within the
limitations of the Plan, the Committee may modify, extend or assume outstanding
Options or may accept the cancellation of outstanding Options (whether granted
by the Company or another issuer) in return for the grant of new Options for the
same or a different number of Shares and at the same or a different Exercise
Price. The foregoing notwithstanding, no modification of an Option shall,
without the consent of the Optionee, impair such Optionee's rights or increase
his or her obligations under such Option.
 
     (n) Restrictions on Transfer of Shares. Any Shares issued upon exercise of
an Option may be subject to such special forfeiture conditions, rights of
repurchase, rights of first refusal and other transfer restrictions as the
Committee may determine. Such restrictions shall be set forth in the applicable
Stock Option Agreement and shall apply in addition to any general restrictions
that may apply to all holders of Shares.
 
SECTION 8.  PAYMENT FOR SHARES.
 
     (a) General Rule. The entire Purchase Price or Exercise Price of Shares
issued under the Plan shall be payable in lawful money of the United States of
America at the time when such Shares are purchased, except as provided in
Subsections (b), (c), (d), (e) and (f) below.
 
     (b) Surrender of Stock. To the extent that a Stock Option Agreement so
provides, payment may be made all or in part with Shares which have already been
owned by the Optionee or the Optionee's representative for more than six months
and which are surrendered to the Company in good form for transfer. Such Shares
shall be valued at their Fair Market Value on the date when the new Shares are
purchased under the Plan.
 
     (c) Services Rendered. At the discretion of the Committee, Shares may be
awarded under the Plan in consideration of services rendered to the Company or a
Subsidiary prior to the award. If Shares are awarded without the payment of a
Purchase Price in cash, the Committee shall make a determination (at the time of
the award) of the value of the services rendered by the Offeree and the
sufficiency of the consideration to meet the requirements of Section 6(c).
 
     (d) Promissory Note. To the extent that a Stock Option Agreement or Stock
Purchase Agreement so provides, a portion of the Exercise Price or Purchase
Price (as the case may be) of Shares issued under the Plan may be paid with a
full-recourse promissory note, provided that (i) the par value of such Shares
must be paid in lawful money of the United States of America at the time when
such Shares are purchased, (ii) the Shares are pledged as security for payment
of the principal amount of the promissory note and interest thereon and (iii)
the interest rate payable under the terms of the promissory note shall not be
less than the minimum rate (if any) required to avoid the imputation of
additional interest under the Code. Subject to the foregoing, the Committee (at
its sole discretion) shall specify the term, interest rate, amortization
requirements (if any) and other provisions of such note.
 
     (e) Exercise/Sale. To the extent that a Stock Option Agreement so provides,
payment may be made all or in part by the delivery (on a form prescribed by the
Company) of an irrevocable direction to a securities broker approved by the
Company to sell Shares and to deliver all or part of the sales proceeds to the
Company in payment of all or part of the Exercise Price and any
 
                                       9
 
 
<PAGE>
 
withholding taxes.
 
     (f) Exercise/Pledge. To the extent that a Stock Option Agreement so
provides, payment may be made all or in part by the delivery (on a form
prescribed by the Company) of an irrevocable direction to pledge Shares to a
securities broker or lender approved by the Company, as security for a loan, and
to deliver all or part of the loan proceeds to the Company in payment of all or
part of the Exercise Price and any withholding taxes.
 
SECTION 9.  ADJUSTMENT OF SHARES.
 
     (a) General. In the event of a subdivision of the outstanding Stock, a
declaration of a dividend payable in Shares, a declaration of a dividend payable
in a form other than Shares in an amount that has a material effect on the value
of Shares, a combination or consolidation of the outstanding Stock into a lesser
number of Shares, a recapitalization, a spinoff, a reclassification or a similar
occurrence, the Committee shall make appropriate adjustments in one or more of
(i) the number of Shares available for future grants under Section 5, (ii) the
limit set forth in Section 7(b), (iii) the number of Shares covered by each
outstanding Option or (iv) the Exercise Price under each outstanding Option.
 
     (b) Reorganizations. In the event that the Company is a party to a merger
or other reorganization, outstanding Options shall be subject to the agreement
of merger or reorganization. Such agreement may provide, without limitation, (i)
for the assumption of outstanding Options by the surviving corporation or its
parent, (ii) for their continuation by the Company, if the Company is a
surviving corporation, (iii) for payment of a cash settlement equal to the
difference between the amount to be paid for one Share pursuant to such
agreement and the Exercise Price or (iv) for the acceleration of their
exercisability followed by the cancellation of Options not exercised, in all
cases without the Optionees' consent. Any cancellation shall not occur until
after such acceleration is effective and Optionees have been notified of such
acceleration.
 
     (c) Reservation of Rights. Except as provided in this Section 9, an
Optionee or Offeree shall have no rights by reason of (i) any subdivision or
consolidation of shares of stock of any class, (ii) the payment of any dividend
or (iii) any other increase or decrease in the number of shares of stock of any
class. Any issue by the Company of shares of stock of any class, or securities
convertible into shares of stock of any class, shall not affect, and no
adjustment by reason thereof shall be made with respect to, the number or
Exercise Price of Shares subject to an Option. The grant of an Option pursuant
to the Plan shall not affect in any way the right or power of the Company to
make adjustments, reclassifications, reorganizations or changes of its capital
or business structure, to merge or consolidate or to dissolve, liquidate, sell
or transfer all or any part of its business or assets.
 
SECTION 10.  SECURITIES LAWS.
 
     Shares shall not be issued under the Plan unless the issuance and delivery
of such Shares comply with (or are exempt from) all applicable requirements of
law, including (without limitation) the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the
Exchange Act, the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, state securities
laws and regulations, and the regulations of any stock exchange on which the
Company's securities may then be listed.

SECTION 11.  NO EMPLOYMENT RIGHTS.
 
     No provision of the Plan, nor any right or Option granted under the Plan,

to remain an Employee. The Company and its Subsidiaries reserve the right to
