 6.     Securities Legend.  Until such time as the Shares shall have been transferred in accordance with an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Company that registration under the Act is not required, stop transfer instructions shall be issued to the Company’s transfer agent, if any, or, if the Company transfers its own securities, a notation shall be made in the appropriate records of the Company with respect to the Shares, and so long as required under the Act or the regulations promulgated thereunder, the certificate(s) representing the Shares shall bear substantially the following legend:

7.     Registration Rights. In the event that the Purchaser is terminated from his employment with the Company for any reason other than for Cause (as defined in the employment agreement between the Company and the Purchaser (the “Employment Agreement”)) or if the Purchaser resigns from such employment for Good Reason (as defined in the Employment Agreement), in either case while no exemption from registration for such resale under the Act is available to the Purchaser with respect to the resale of the Shares on Nasdaq or such other stock exchange or public market as is then the primary marketplace for the Common Stock under any, the Company will prepare and file, within 60 days of such termination, a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) to register the resale of the Shares by the Purchaser.  The Company will use its best efforts to have such registration statement declared effective by the Commission as soon as practicable and, thereafter, to keep such registration statement effective until such time as the Purchaser can sell all of
