1.2. EXCLUDED ASSETS. Except for the Company Assets specifically described herein, no other assets owned by Seller shall be conveyed pursuant to this Agreement.

1.3. ASSUMED LIABILITIES. On the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, Purchaser, at the Closing, agrees to assume all of the following obligations of Seller (collectively, the "Assumed Liabilities"):

(a) The liabilities and obligations of Seller under the Assigned Contracts; and

(b) The ad valorem taxes, if any, relating to the Company Assets for 1998 (as described in Section 8.7 below, and referred to herein as the "Seller's Tax Share").

1.4. EXCLUDED LIABILITIES. Except for the Assumed Liabilities, Purchaser shall not assume or be subject to, or in any way be liable or responsible for, and Seller shall retain responsibility for all liabilities and obligations of Seller of any kind or nature, known or unknown, relating to the Company Assets, the Business or Seller. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser shall deduct from the stated value of the AVRI Stock (as defined in
Section 2(c)) to be delivered to Seller, an amount equal to the amount necessary to prepay and pay off in full Seller's obligations under those certain Master Equipment Leases, each dated May 13, 1998 (the "Equipment Leases"), whereby Sterling National Bank (the "Bank") leased certain computer equipment more particularly described therein to Seller. Further, Purchaser will, at its option, either (i) pay such obligations

2

owed to the Bank in full, or (ii) assume Seller's obligations under the Equipment Leases, provided that Purchaser receives a written consent from the Bank with respect to such assignment.

2. PURCHASE PRICE. The purchase price for the Company Assets (the "Purchase Price") shall be ONE MILLION TWO HUNDRED EIGHTY THOUSAND AND NO/100 DOLLARS ($1,280,000) less (A) the aggregate amount of Seller's liabilities to be assumed by Purchaser under the Assigned Contracts, and (B) Seller's Tax Share. The Purchase Price shall be paid as follows:

(a) $275,000 in cash at Closing (the "Cash Portion of the Purchase Price").

(i) $150,000 shall be due and payable on or before February 28, 1999. Of such $150,000 payment, Purchaser shall deliver $25,000 directly to Seller's lender, Innodata Corporation, a Delaware corporation ("Seller's Lender"), as a payment on behalf of Seller, in satisfaction of that certain $25,000 installment note payment due on or before April 30, 1999, pursuant to the terms of that certain Promissory Note dated as of April 22, 1998 in the original principal amount of up to $100,000 (the "Seller's Note"). Notwithstanding Purchaser's agreement to make such installment payment on behalf of Seller, Purchaser shall not assume nor become liable for any of Seller's obligations under the Seller's Note, it being Seller's and Purchaser's intention and agreement that Purchaser is merely agreeing to pay such amount directly to Seller's Lender on behalf of, and as an accommodation to, Seller.

(ii) $120,000 shall be payable in twelve equal monthly installments of $10,000 each, payable on the first day of each month commencing on January 1, 1999, and continuing thereafter until December 1, 1999, when, if not sooner paid, all outstanding amounts under the Note shall be due and payable in full.

(c) At Purchaser's request, AVRI hereby agrees to issue and deliver to Seller on December 31, 1999, 735 shares of convertible preferred stock of AVRI that has an aggregate stated value (which shall be the liquidation preference other than accrued but unpaid dividends, if any), herein referred to as the "Stated Value," of $735,000 (the "AVRI Stock"). See EXHIBIT "B" for a description of the AVRI Stock.

3. CONTINGENT PURCHASE PRICE. In addition to the Purchase Price and as additional consideration for the sale of the Company Assets from Seller to Purchaser, with respect to each quarterly period of 1999, if the former employees of Seller are responsible for Purchaser's execution of new agreements for medical transcription services ("New Agreements") that are estimated to generate revenues, in the aggregate over the next twelve month period (as determined by Purchaser in Purchaser's reasonable discretion), that are greater than or equal to the quarterly

3

threshold applicable to such quarterly period set forth on EXHIBIT "C" (collectively, the "Targets," and separately, a "Target"), then Seller shall be entitled to receive such number of shares of AVRI Stock that has an aggregate Stated Value equal to the dollar amounts shown on such exhibit corresponding to such quarterly period (the "Contingent Purchase Price"). Within sixty (60) days after each of March 30, 1999, June 30, 1999, September 30, 1999 and December 31, 1999 (each being referred to separately as a "Reconciliation Date"), Purchaser shall calculate the estimated aggregate gross revenues to be generated over the next twelve month period from the New Agreements entered into during the quarterly period ending on the subject Reconciliation Date. Any Contingent Purchase Price earned hereunder shall be paid by Purchaser to Seller on or before February 28, 2000. In the event that for any particular quarterly period the estimated aggregate gross revenues to be generated over the next twelve month period from the New Agreements fails to meet the Target for such quarterly period, then no Contingent Purchase Price shall be earned by, or paid to, Seller with respect to such quarterly period, and such Contingent Purchase Price shall not be carried over to any subsequent quarterly period. Seller shall have the right to inspect Purchaser's books and records relating to the Business upon three (3) business days advance notice. Such inspection shall take place at the address for Purchaser set forth in Section 13.

Between the Effective Date and the Closing Date, OTP will not create or acquire any subsidiary or

6

make any investments in any corporation, association, partnership, firm, joint venture or other business organization or enterprise.

(e) OTP has (i) good and indefeasible title to all of it's assets reflected on any of the schedules attached hereto as being owned by OTP, and
(ii) right to possession of all such assets, free and clear of all liens, mortgages, pledges, title retention agreements, and security interests. To the Seller's knowledge, (i) the buildings, plants, structures, appurtenances, machinery, equipment and other property owned or used by OTP have been maintained and repaired and are in good operating condition, ordinary wear and tear excepted, and are free from any known defects, except such as require routine maintenance and except such minor defects as do not substantially interfere with the continued use thereof; (ii) all such buildings, plants, structures, appurtenances, machinery, equipment and other property and their operation and maintenance conform in all material respects to all applicable laws; and (iii) no notice of any violation of employment laws, building or zoning laws or other ordinances, regulations or provisions of law relating to such assets and their use have been received by Seller or OTP.

A complete and correct copy of each loan agreement, credit agreement or other similar instrument pursuant to which any such indebtedness was incurred has been furnished to the Purchaser prior to the Effective Date.

(g) The Seller Financial Statements accurately and separately list all guaranties, matters of suretyship and, to Seller's knowledge, contingent liabilities (required to be disclosed in financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles) of OTP.

4.13 SECURITIES REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES. Seller hereby makes each of the following representations and warranties to, and agreements with, Purchaser regarding the AVRI Stock:

(a) The shares of AVRI Stock are being acquired for Seller's own account, for investment purposes only, and not for the account of any other person (other than the shareholders of Seller), and not with a view to distribution, assignment, or resale to others or to fractionalization in whole or in part and that the transfer of the shares of AVRI Stock is intended to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 (the "Act") by virtue of the so-called 4(2) exemption under the Act. Seller understands that the shares of AVRI Stock are and will be "restricted securities," as said term is defined in Rule 144 of the Rules and Regulations promulgated under the Act, that the certificates representing the shares of AVRI Stock will bear a legend to the effect that the transfer of the securities represented thereby is subject to the provisions hereof; and that stop transfer instructions will be placed with the transfer agent for the shares of AVRI Stock. In furtherance thereof, Seller represents, warrants, and agrees as follows: (i) no other person has or will have a direct or indirect beneficial interest in such shares of AVRI Stock, and Seller will not sell, hypothecate, or otherwise transfer any of the shares of AVRI Stock except in accordance with the Act and applicable state securities laws or unless, in the opinion of counsel for Purchaser, an exemption from the registration requirements of the Act and such laws is available; and (ii) Purchaser is under no obligation to register the shares of AVRI Stock on behalf of Seller or to assist Seller in complying with any exemption from registration.

(b) Seller has been furnished with and has carefully read each of (i) Purchaser's Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal year ended December 31, 1997;
(ii) Purchaser's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for fiscal quarter ended March 31, 1998; and (iii) Purchaser's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for fiscal quarter ended June 30, 1998. Purchaser has provided, or immediately upon availability shall provide, to Seller a copy of Purchaser's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for fiscal quarter ended September 30, 1998. In evaluating the suitability of an investment in Purchaser, Seller has not relied upon any representations or other information (whether oral or written) from Purchaser or any of Purchaser's agents, and no oral or written representations have been made or oral or written information furnished to Seller or Seller's advisors, if any, in connection with the acceptance of the shares of AVRI Stock in payment of the Note which were in any way inconsistent with the information set forth in the documents listed in the first sentence of this Section 4.13(b). To the best knowledge of Seller, Purchaser and AVRI have granted to Seller and its representatives the opportunity to examine such documents and ask such questions of Purchaser and AVRI as Seller has deemed necessary, and Seller has received satisfactory answers from Purchaser and AVRI (or person's acting on Purchaser's or AVRI's behalf) concerning the business of AVRI and the terms and conditions of the AVRI Stock described herein. Purchaser will provide to Seller copies of all Quarterly

9

Reports on 10-Q filed after the Effective Date, together with such additional information as Seller may reasonably request from Purchaser that is readily available to Purchaser.

(c) Purchaser has made available to Seller all documents and information that Seller has requested relating to an investment in Purchaser.

(d) Seller recognizes that an investment in Purchaser involves substantial risks, and Seller has taken full cognizance of and understand all of the risk factors related to the AVRI Stock.

(e) Seller has carefully considered and has, to the extent Seller believes such discussion necessary, discussed with Seller's professional legal, tax and financial advisers the suitability of an investment in Purchaser for Seller's particular tax and financial situation and Seller has determined that the AVRI Stock is a suitable investment for Seller.

(f) All information which Seller has provided to Purchaser concerning Seller and the financial position of Seller is correct and complete as the date set forth below.

5. REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS OF PURCHASER. Purchaser represents, warrants and, as applicable, covenants, to and agrees with Seller that:

5.1. PURCHASER'S AUTHORITY RELATIVE TO THIS AGREEMENT. This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by Purchaser, and no further corporate action is necessary with respect to Purchaser to make this Agreement a valid and binding obligation of Purchaser, enforceable in accordance with its terms. Neither the execution, delivery nor performance of this Agreement by Purchaser will result in a violation or breach of any term or provision under the Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws or any resolution of the Board of Directors or shareholders of Purchaser or constitute a default or breach of, or accelerate the performance required under, or require the consent of any person or entity under any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust or other contract or agreement to which Purchaser is a party or by which it or any of its assets are bound, or violate any order, writ, injunction or decree of any court, administrative agency or governmental body.

5.2. ORGANIZATION AND EXISTENCE. Purchaser is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware and has all requisite corporate power to carry on its business as now conducted and to enter into and perform this Agreement.

5.3. PURCHASER FINANCIAL STATEMENTS. Purchaser has heretofore furnished Seller with complete copies of all of the financial information described in Section 4.13(b) (the "Purchaser Financial Statements"), and until Closing shall continue to provide Seller with copies of each successive month's financial statements as soon as they become available. To the best of Purchaser's knowledge, the Purchaser Financial Statements (including items delivered after the Effective Date in accordance with this Section 5.3) are true and complete in all material respects, have been prepared from the books and records of Purchaser in accordance with generally accepted

10

accounting principles consistently applied throughout the entire period presented (except as disclosed therein and except for the absence of footnotes) and present fairly the financial condition of Purchaser at such dates and the results of operations of Purchaser for the periods reflected therein.

5.4. PURCHASER'S PAYMENT OF TAXES.

The liabilities for such taxes reflected in the Purchaser Financial Statements represent, as of the date thereof, reasonable provision for the payment of all accrued and unpaid taxes of Purchaser accrued through that date, whether or not disputed, as well as deferred taxes required under generally accepted accounting principles. The income tax returns of Purchaser are not currently under audit by any federal, state or foreign taxing authorities, and no taxable period has been audited by federal authorities. There are no agreements, waivers or other arrangements providing for an extension of time with respect to the payment of any tax or the assessment of any tax or deficiency of any nature against Purchaser, nor are any suits or any other actions, proceedings, investigations or claims now pending or threatened against Purchaser with respect to any tax or assessment, nor are any matters under discussion with any federal, state, foreign or local authority relating to any such taxes or assessments, or to any claims for additional taxes or assessments asserted by any such authority.

Purchaser will not cause or voluntarily permit a change in any income tax method of accounting by Purchaser or in the method of allocation of the income tax liability of Purchaser during or applicable to its current tax year which would render inaccurate, misleading or incomplete the information concerning taxes set forth or referred to in this section, or which would have a material adverse effect on Purchaser for any period prior to the Closing Date.

5.5. COVENANT TO RESERVE SHARES. Purchaser hereby covenants that Purchaser will cause AVRI at all times to reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued Common Stock or treasury shares, solely for issuance upon the conversion of shares of AVRI Stock in accordance with its terms, free from any preemptive rights, such number of shares of Common Stock of AVRI as shall be issuable upon the conversion of all the shares of the AVRI Stock then outstanding.
