Exhibit 99.1

INTUITIVE SURGICAL AND COMPUTER MOTION
ANNOUNCE MERGER AGREEMENT

SUNNYVALE, CALIF., MARCH 7, 2003 - Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG) and Computer Motion (NASDAQ: RBOT) today announced they are merging into one company that combines their strengths in operative surgical robotics, telesurgery, and operating room integration, to better serve hospitals, doctors and patients.

Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, Computer Motion's equity holders would receive 32 percent of the combined company on a fully diluted basis (including out-of-the-money options and warrants), and Intuitive's equity holders would receive 68 percent. The merger agreement exchange ratio formula anticipates that each outstanding share of Computer Motion common stock would be converted into approximately 0.52 shares of Intuitive common stock. In the event that Computer Motion's common stock trades at an average of less than $1.86 per share before the merger, the exchange ratio will be reduced, but shall in no event be less than approximately 0.48. (See attached table). Under the merger agreement, it is anticipated that Intuitive will issue an aggregate of approximately 15.39 million shares, on a net fully diluted basis, in exchange for all of Computer Motion's outstanding common stock, preferred stock, options and warrants. The merger is subject to the approval of a majority of the shareholders of each company and is intended to be a tax-free reorganization. In addition, Intuitive may provide a bridge loan to Computer Motion to provide working capital for its operations through the closure period if necessary.

"Both of our companies have made tremendous contributions to medicine by delivering less-invasive surgery with surgical robotics," said Intuitive Surgical President


and CEO Lonnie Smith. "By combining our highly complementary technology and talents, we believe we will be able to provide surgeons and hospitals with the best possible products and support to serve their patients' needs in minimally invasive surgery. We believe both the da Vinci(TM) and ZEUS(R) surgical system platforms will play an important and complementary role in the future of our new company with each delivering unique benefits to our customers."

"Surgical robotics has delivered on its promise of making surgery less invasive, shortening recovery times and lessening the trauma for patients, while providing economic value for our hospital customers," said Robert Duggan, Chairman and CEO of Computer Motion. "Separately, our companies wouldn't be able to accomplish for patients and our shareholders what we will be able to accomplish together. By sharing our complementary technologies in networking, articulation, control and visualization, we believe we will significantly strengthen the surgical capabilities of both the da Vinci and ZEUS product platforms. We look forward to working as one team to enhance the care received by patients through less-invasive surgery."

The merger will also end a series of long-term patent disputes. "With these disputes behind us, we can focus the talent and energy of the combined organization on developing and growing the application of robotics to minimally invasive surgery; the significant benefits we bring to patients, surgeons, and medical centers throughout the world; and the operating efficiencies that the combination will deliver to the bottom line," Mr. Smith concluded.

"This is an important merger for Computer Motion. Eliminating intellectual property litigation and initiating technology sharing should have a positive impact on


market value. In addition, this merger strengthens our organization's financial and operational capabilities," Mr. Duggan added.

Intuitive's da Vinci Surgical System is used by surgeons in more than 100 hospitals around the world and provides all the advantages of open surgery while simultaneously allowing the surgeon to work through small ports of minimally invasive surgery. Intuitive shipped 60 da Vinci Surgical Systems in 2002 and had total sales of $72 million.

Computer Motion is a high-tech medical device company evolving surgical practices to enhance patient lives. Computer Motion plays a significant role in transitioning the surgical community from current open procedures to endoscopic procedures that are less painful and traumatic to the patient. Computer Motion's products include the ZEUS(R) MicroWrist(TM) Robotic Surgical System for minimally invasive surgical procedures, and the HERMES(R) Control Center, a centralized system that enables the surgeon to voice control a network of "smart" medical devices. The AESOP(R) Robotic Endoscope Positioner is the first surgical robot to be made commercially available in the U.S. The company's newest product, the SOCRATES(TM) Telecollaboration System, facilitates surgeon collaboration using video and audio conferencing, shared control of the endoscopic camera, and video annotation on the surgical image in the operating room.

The merged company will be traded on NASDAQ under a symbol to be determined. Mr. Smith will serve as President and CEO and Mr. Duggan will serve as member of the Board of Directors. Mr. Darrin Uecker will join the new executive team as Vice President and Chief Technical Officer and will report to Dr. Gary Guthart, Senior


Vice President of Operations. The company will be headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., with operations in both Sunnyvale and Goleta, Calif.

Intuitive Surgical and Computer Motion will host a joint conference call to discuss this merger today at 10:00 AM PST. The dial-in numbers for this call are 877-909-3508 for U.S. calls and 484-630-4228 for International calls. The passcode is ISRG and the leader is Lonnie Smith.

ANTICIPATED EXCHANGE RATIO

The number of shares of Intuitive common stock that each share of Computer Motion common stock will be converted into (the "Exchange Ratio") will be determined based on the total number of fully diluted shares outstanding for Intuitive Surgical and Computer Motion immediately prior to consummation of the merger. Computer Motion's fully diluted share count may vary based upon the number of shares of common stock into which Computer Motion's preferred stock will be convertible. This preferred stock conversion ratio will, in turn, vary inversely based upon the average Computer Motion stock price (the "Average Computer Motion Stock Price") which will be determined based on closing bid prices for Computer Motion during a defined pricing period occurring prior to consummation of the merger.

The table below reflects the anticipated Exchange Ratio based on the number of fully diluted shares (excluding certain Computer Motion warrants expiring in 2003) currently outstanding for each of Intuitive Surgical and Computer Motion and a range of assumed Average Computer Motion Stock Prices.

WHEREAS, the Corporation desires to create a new series of its Preferred Stock to be designated as "Series D Convertible Preferred Stock";

NOW, THEREFORE, it is hereby

The Corporation shall pay dividends on the Stated Value of each share of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock at the initial rate of 8.0% per annum and increasing to 12% per annum on the second anniversary of the Initial Issuance Date. Dividends shall be computed based on a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months.

(a) Dividends on Series D-1 Convertible Preferred Stock. At the option of the Corporation, dividends may be payable to the Holders of Series D-1 Convertible Preferred Stock in the form of either (i) such coin or currency of the United States of America as at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts or (ii) the number of full shares of Common Stock that the amount of accrued dividends payable would entitle such Holder to acquire based upon a price per share equal to 90% of the average of the VWAP (as defined below) for the twenty (20) Trading Day period immediately prior to the date such dividend becomes due and payable; provided, however, that if the Corporation elects to pay a Holder in shares of Common Stock, the Corporation shall issue to the Holder freely tradeable shares of Common Stock; provided further, that the Corporation may elect to pay a Holder in shares of Common Stock only if the Registration Statement (the "Registration Statement") filed by the Corporation pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of October 31, 2002, among the Corporation and the holders of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Registration Rights Agreement") remains effective. The Corporation shall notify the Holder in writing not less than twenty-two (22) Trading Days of the date such dividends are due and payable of the form in which the Corporation elects to pay accumulated dividends. In the event the Corporation fails to timely provide such notice, payments of dividends shall be in cash.

As used herein, "VWAP" shall mean the Volume Weighted Average Price of the Corporation's Common Stock as reported by Bloomberg, L.P. on such day on the NASDAQ National Market (or the NASDAQ Small Cap Market, the New York Stock Exchange or American Stock Exchange in the event any such market or exchange constitutes the principal market on which the Common Stock is quoted or listed or admitted to trading) (such four markets and exchanges, the "Approved Markets") or, if not quoted or listed or admitted to trading on any such Approved Market, the closing bid price in the over-the-counter market as furnished by any New York Stock Exchange member firm that is selected from time to time by the Corporation for that purpose.

(b) Dividends on Series D-2 Convertible Preferred Stock. Dividends shall be payable quarterly to the Holders of Series D-2 Convertible Preferred Stock in such coin or currency of the United States of America as at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts.

2

During any period that such dividend payments are in arrears, the Corporation shall not incur any indebtedness.

SECTION 3. REDEMPTION.

(a) Redemption Date. The "Redemption Date" shall mean October 29, 2004.

(b) Corporation's Election to Redeem. At any time following the Redemption Date, the Corporation may elect to redeem on a pro rata basis no less than $2,000,000 of the outstanding Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, by delivering at least 15 days' notice of such election (the "Redemption Election Notice") to the Holders of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock. Upon receipt of the Redemption Election Notice, the Holder shall surrender to the Corporation its stock certificate representing such Holder's pro rata portion of shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock being redeemed (the "Series D Convertible Stock Certificates") and, upon such surrender, the Corporation shall deliver to the Holder with respect to each share of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock so redeemed, an amount of cash equal to the Stated Value plus any accrued and unpaid dividends (the "Redemption Price"). In the event that less than all of the outstanding shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock are redeemed, the Corporation shall promptly return to the Holder its stock certificate representing the balance of such shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock not redeemed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Holder shall have the right to convert any shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock in accordance with Section 4(a) below until the close of business on the date fixed for redemption in such Redemption Election Notice. The Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall not be redeemable at the election of the Holder.

(c) Effect of Redemption. At any time following delivery of the Redemption Election Notice, unless there shall have been a default in payment of the Redemption Price, all rights of the holders of the shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock designated for redemption in the Redemption Election Notice as holders of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (except the right to receive the Redemption Price without interest 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 deemed to be outstanding for any purpose whatsoever.

SECTION 4. CONVERSION.

(a) Right to Convert. Subject to Section 3 and this Section 4, a Holder has the right to convert shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, in whole or from time to time in part, into such number of shares of common stock, par value $.001 per share, of the Corporation (the "Common Stock") equal to the aggregate Stated Value of the shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock divided by the then effective Conversion Price (as defined below) and any accrued and unpaid dividends shall then be payable in accordance with Section 2 above.

(b) Automatic Conversion. At any time following 180 days after the effectiveness of the Registration Statement, each share of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall

3

automatically be converted into shares of Common Stock equal to the Stated Value divided by the then effective Conversion Price on the sixth (6th) Trading Day following the date that the Corporation provides written notice to each Holder that immediately following any ten (10) consecutive Trading Days during which the VWAP is greater than $3.00 (the "Threshold Appreciation Price"); provided, however, that the Registration Statement remains effective on the sixth (6th) Trading Day referred to above. In the event of an automatic conversion as described above, any accrued and unpaid dividends shall be due and payable on the date of such automatic conversion in accordance with Section 2 above.

(c) Conversion Price; Amount. The price at which the Holder may convert shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (or any portion thereof) into shares of Common Stock shall be $1.38, subject to adjustment as provided in
Section 4(f) (the "Conversion Price"). In lieu of any fractional share of Common Stock to which the Holder would otherwise be entitled upon conversion of shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion thereof shall be rounded up to the nearest whole number.

(d) Mechanics of Conversion.

(i) To convert shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock in accordance with Section 4(a), the Holder must (i) complete and sign a Notice of Conversion in form acceptable to the Corporation (the "Notice of Conversion") and deliver the Notice of Conversion to the Corporation as herein provided and
(ii) prior to the date on which delivery of Common Stock is required to be made hereunder, (x) duly endorse and deliver to the Corporation the Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s) representing the shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock being converted and (y) pay any transfer or similar tax with respect to the delivery of such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s) if required. The Holder shall surrender such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s) and the Notice of Conversion to the Corporation (with an advance copy by facsimile of the Notice of Conversion). The date on which Notice of Conversion is given (the "Date of Conversion") shall be deemed to be the date of receipt by the Corporation of the facsimile of the Notice of Conversion, provided that such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s) are received by the Corporation within five (5) business days thereafter. The Corporation shall not be obligated to cause the transfer agent for the Common Stock (the "Transfer Agent") to issue certificates evidencing the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion unless either such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate has been received by the Corporation or, if such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s) have been lost, stolen or destroyed, the Holder has executed and delivered to the Corporation an agreement satisfactory to the Corporation to indemnify the Corporation from any loss incurred by it in connection with the shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock represented by such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s).

If the Transfer Agent is participating in the Depository Trust Company ("DTC") Fast Automated Securities Transfer ("FAST") program, the Holder shall deliver to the Corporation valid broker information, including DTC number, and verification that such broker has been instructed to initiate the DWAC transfer (as defined below) (collectively, the "Broker Information") and, thereafter, the Corporation shall cause the Transfer Agent to transmit electronically the shares of Common Stock issuable to the Holder upon conversion of shares of

4

the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock by crediting the account of the Holder's prime broker with DTC through DTC's Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission ("DWAC") system, within three (3) business days after delivery to the Corporation of the Broker Information and the Holder's Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s). In the event the Holder otherwise elects in writing, however, the Corporation shall cause the Transfer Agent to issue and deliver (within such three (3) business day period) to the address of the Holder on the books of the Corporation or as otherwise directed pursuant to the Notice of Conversion, a certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Common Stock to which such Holder shall be entitled as aforesaid. In the event the Corporation fails to complete such delivery as aforesaid, it shall be responsible for actual damages incurred by the Holder as a result thereof. 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. Notwithstanding that the Holder is required to deliver the Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s), duly endorsed, within five (5) business days after the Date of Conversion, if such Series D Convertible Certificate(s) are not received by the Corporation within ten (10) business days after the Date of Conversion, the Corporation may at its option elect, by written notice given to the Holder within fifteen (15) business days after the Date of Conversion, elect (A) to treat Notice of Conversion as null and void or (B) to treat the Notice of Conversion as binding and require the Holder to deliver the applicable Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s). In the event the Corporation elects to treat the Notice of Conversion as binding, the shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock with respect to which such Notice of Conversion was given shall thereafter no longer be deemed outstanding and the Holder thereof shall not be entitled to any voting or other rights attendant thereto, excepting only the right to receive, upon the delivery to the Corporation of the applicable Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s), the shares of Common Stock upon the conversion thereof as contemplated above.

Following conversion of a share of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, such share will no longer be outstanding and may not be reissued. In the event of the conversion of less than all of the shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock represented by a Series D Convertible Stock Certificate, the Corporation or its Transfer Agent will issue to the Holder a new stock certificate representing the number of shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock not converted or shall endorse the Series D Convertible Stock Certificate to reflect such conversion.

If, within three (3) business days of the Corporation's receipt of the Conversion Notice and the Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s) to be converted, the Corporation shall fail to issue and deliver to a Holder the number of shares of Common Stock to which such Holder is entitled upon such Holder's conversion of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock or to issue a new Series D Convertible Stock Certificate representing the number of shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock to which such Holder is entitled pursuant to this Section 4(d)(i), in addition to all other available remedies which such Holder may pursue hereunder and under the Purchase Agreement, the Corporation shall pay additional damages to such Holder on each business day after such third (3rd) business day that such conversion is not timely effected in an amount equal to 0.5% of the product of (A) the sum of the number of shares of Common Stock not issued to the Holder on a timely basis pursuant to this Section 4(b)(i) and to which such Holder is entitled, and, in the event the Corporation has failed to deliver a Series D Convertible Stock Certificate to the Holder on a timely basis pursuant to this Section 4(b)(i), the number of

5

shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock represented by such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate, as of the last possible date which the Corporation could have issued such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate to such Holder without violating Section 4(b)(i) and (B) the VWAP of the Common Stock on the last possible date which the Corporation could have issued such Common Stock and such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate, as the case may be, to such Holder without violating this Section 4(b)(i). If the Corporation fails to pay the additional damages set forth in this Section 4(b)(i) within five (5) business days of the date incurred, then such payment shall bear interest at the rate of 2% per month (pro rated for partial months) until such payments are made.

(ii) Upon conversion due to the event specified in Section 4(b) above, the holders of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall surrender the Series D Preferred Stock Certificate(s) representing such shares at the office of the Corporation or the Transfer Agent. Thereupon, there shall be issued and delivered to such holder in the manner described in Section 4(d)(i) the number of shares of Common Stock into which the shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock surrendered were convertible on the date on which such automatic conversion occurred. Upon such automatic conversion, the outstanding shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall be converted automatically into shares of Common Stock without any further action on the part of the holders of such shares whether or not the certificates representing such shares are surrendered to the Corporation or its Transfer Agent; provided, however, that the Corporation shall not be obligated to issue certificates evidencing the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion unless the certificates evidencing such shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock are either delivered to the Corporation or its Transfer Agent or, if such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s) have been lost, stolen or destroyed, the Holder has executed and delivered to the Corporation an agreement satisfactory to the Corporation to indemnify the Corporation from any loss incurred by it in connection with the shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock represented by such Series D Convertible Stock Certificate(s).

(e) 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 or shares of Common Stock held in treasury, or both, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, such number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the conversion of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock and all other securities of the Corporation convertible or exchangeable into Common Stock.

(f) Adjustment to Conversion Price; Maximum Share Issuance.

(i) If, prior to the conversion of all shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is increased by a stock split, stock dividend of shares of Common Stock or other shares of capital stock, reclassification or other similar event, the Conversion Price shall be proportionately reduced, or if the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is decreased by a combination or reclassification of shares or other similar event, the Conversion Price shall be proportionately increased, in each case, such that a Holder will have the right to receive upon conversion of shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock the number of shares of Common Stock (or other shares of capital stock) of the

6

Corporation that such Holder would have been entitled to receive had the Holder converted such shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock immediately prior to such action. The Threshold Appreciation Price (as defined in Section 4(c) above) shall likewise be proportionately adjusted upon any increase in the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock on account of any stock split, stock dividend of shares of Common Stock or other shares of capital stock, reclassification or other similar event or upon any decrease in number of outstanding shares of Common Stock on account of any combination or reclassification of shares or other similar event.

(ii) In addition to the adjustments set forth above, if the Corporation distributes to all holders of its Common Stock any of its assets or debt securities or any rights or warrants to purchase securities other than Common Stock, then the Conversion Price shall be adjusted in such a manner as shall be agreed to by the Corporation and the Holders of at least ninety percent (90%) of the outstanding shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (excluding the shares of Series D Preferred Stock beneficially owned by Robert W. Duggan (the "Duggan Shares")) as shall fairly preserve the economic rights and benefits of each Holder as contemplated by this Certificate of Designations. In the event that within 15 days of any such event, the Corporation and such Holders do not reach an agreement as to the appropriate adjustment, the Corporation shall retain, and pay for, a nationally recognized investment bank or accounting firm to determine the appropriate adjustment as soon as possible, but in any event not later than 45 days, after the date of such event; provided that such investment bank or accounting firm is mutually agreeable to the Corporation and at least ninety percent (90%) of the Holders of the outstanding shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (excluding the Duggan Shares).

(iii) In the event that, after the Initial Issuance Date, the Corporation shall (other than (A) upon the exercise, exchange or conversion of any securities of the Corporation that are exercisable or exchangeable for, or convertible into, shares of Common Stock and that are outstanding as of the Initial Issuance Date, (B) upon the issuance of shares of Common Stock to strategic partners and/or in connection with a strategic merger or acquisition,
(C) upon the issuance of shares of Common Stock or options to purchase shares of Common Stock to employees, officers, directors, consultants and vendors in accordance with the Issuer's equity incentive plans in effect on the Initial Issuance Date, (D) upon the issuance of securities pursuant to a shareholder rights plan in effect on the Initial Issuance Date, (E) upon the conversion of any shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock or Series D Convertible Preferred Stock or (F) upon the issuance of shares of Common Stock to pay dividends) at any time while any shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock or Series D Convertible Preferred Stock are outstanding (x) issue shares of Common Stock without consideration or at a price per share less than the then effective Conversion Price (such Conversion Price, the "Minimum Trigger Price"),
(y) issue options, rights or warrants to subscribe for or purchase Common Stock that provide for (upon the exercise thereof) the issuance of shares of Common Stock without consideration or at a price per share, which when added to the price or other consideration received for such options, rights or warrants, is less than the Minimum Trigger Price or (z) issue securities convertible into Common Stock having a conversion price less than the Minimum Trigger Price, the Conversion Price to be in effect after the date of such issuance shall be adjusted by multiplying the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to the date of any such issuances referenced above by a fraction, of which the numerator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding on the date of such issuance plus the number of shares of Common Stock that the aggregate offering price of

7

the total number of shares of Common Stock so to be issued (or the aggregate issue price of the convertible securities so to be issued) would purchase at the Minimum Trigger Price and of which the denominator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding on the date of such issuance plus the number of additional shares of Common Stock to be issued (or into which the convertible securities so to be issued are initially convertible). In case the price for such securities may be paid in a consideration part or all of which shall be in a form other than cash, the value of such consideration shall be as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Corporation, whose determination shall be conclusive. Such adjustment shall be made successively whenever the date of such issuance is fixed and, in the event that such options, rights, warrants or convertible securities (or portions thereof) expire or are otherwise discharged or redeemed without being exercised or converted, any adjustment in the Conversion Price on account of the issuance of the same shall be reversed.

(iv) Adjustments pursuant to this Section 4(f) shall be permanent unless further adjustments are required pursuant to the terms of this Section
4(f). No adjustment to the Conversion Price pursuant to any of the events or circumstances set forth herein shall be made unless such adjustment shall be in an amount of at least one cent ($0.01); provided, however, that any adjustment that would otherwise be required to be made hereunder but for the fact that it is less than one cent ($0.01) shall be carried forward and made part of any subsequent adjustment that (a) when aggregated with prior adjustment(s) that have not been made because it was (or each of them was) less than one cent ($0.01) or (b) is in excess of one cent ($0.01).

(v) If any adjustment under this Section 4(f) would create a fractional share of Common Stock or a right to acquire a fractional share of Common Stock, such fractional share shall be disregarded and the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion shall be the next higher number of shares.

(g) Restrictions on Conversion.

(i) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 4 of this Certificate of Designations, at no time may a Holder convert shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock if the number of shares of Common Stock to be issued pursuant to such conversion would exceed, when aggregated with all other shares of Common Stock owned by such holder at such time, the number of shares of Common Stock which would result in such holder owning more than 4.99% of all of the Common Stock outstanding at such time; provided, however, that upon a Holder providing the Corporation with sixty-one (61) days notice (the "Waiver Notice") that such Holder would like to waive Section 4(g) of this Certificate of Designations with regard to any or all shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, this
Section 4(g) shall be of no force or effect with regard to those shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock reference in the Waiver Notice.

(ii) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 4 of this Certificate of Designations, at no time may a Holder convert shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock if the number of shares of Common Stock to be issued pursuant to such conversion would exceed, when aggregated with all other shares of Common Stock owned by such holder at such time, would result in such Holder beneficially owning (as determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended , and the

8

rules thereunder) in excess of 9.999% of the then issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock outstanding at such time; provided, however, that upon a Holder providing the Corporation with a Waiver Notice that such Holder would like to waive Section 4(g) of this Certificate of Designations with regard to any or all shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, this Section 4(g) shall be of no force or effect with regard to those shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock reference in the Waiver Notice.

SECTION 5. REORGANIZATIONS, MERGERS, CONSOLIDATIONS OR SALE OF ASSETS.

If at any time or from time to time after the Initial Issuance Date, there is a capital reorganization of the Common Stock (other than a recapitalization, subdivision, combination, reclassification, exchange or substitution of shares provided for elsewhere in Section 4(f)), then, as part of such capital reorganization, provisions shall be made so that the holders of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall thereafter have the right to receive upon conversion of shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, upon the basis and the terms and conditions specified herein, such shares of stock and/or securities as may be issued or payable with respect to or in exchange for the number of shares of Common Stock immediately theretofore receivable upon the conversion of such shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, and in any such case appropriate provisions shall be made with respect to the rights and interests of the holders of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock such that the provisions hereof shall thereafter be applicable in relation to any shares of stock or securities thereafter deliverable upon the conversion of shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock; provided, however, that this Section 5 shall not apply to any Change of Control Transaction (as defined in Section 6) in respect of which the Holders exercise their rights under Section 6. The Corporation shall not effect any such capital reorganization unless the resulting successor or acquiring entity (if not the Corporation) assumes by written instrument the obligation to deliver to the holders of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock such shares of stock and/or securities as such holder is entitled to receive upon conversion in accordance with the foregoing.

SECTION 6. CHANGE OF CONTROL.

(a) A "Change of Control Transaction" shall mean, (i) the sale, conveyance or disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Corporation, (ii) a consolidation or merger of the Corporation with or into any other "Person" (as defined in the Exchange Act) (whether or not the Corporation is the surviving Person) or (iii) (other than a consolidation or merger provided for in clause (ii)) any Person or any "group" (as such term is used in Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act), becomes the beneficial owner or is deemed to beneficially own (as described in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act without regard to the 60-day exercise period) in excess of 50% of the Corporation's voting power of the capital stock of the Corporation normally entitled to vote in the election of directors of the Corporation (other than (A) any Person or any such group that held such voting power as of the Initial Issuance Date or (B) any group that holds such voting power subsequent to the Initial Issuance Date, provided that the Persons that constitute such group include the Person or a majority of the members of, and at least 50% of the voting power held by, a group referenced in the foregoing clause (A)).

(b) Upon the notice or occurrence of, or announcement of the Corporation's intent (or a third party's or parties' intent in the case of a Change of Control Transaction of the type set

9

forth in clause (iii) of the definition of a Change of Control Transaction) to engage in a Change of Control Transaction, the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall, at the option of the Holder thereof, be convertible in full upon the terms set forth in this Section 6(b); provided, however, that the Holder's ability to convert the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock pursuant to this
Section 6(b) shall be effective only if the Holder has delivered a Notice of Conversion in accordance with Section 4(d) no later than twelve (12) Trading Days prior to the date of the meeting of the Corporation's stockholders to approve such Change of Control Transaction. In the event that the Holder elects to convert pursuant to this Section 6(b), each share of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall be convertible into that number of shares of Common Stock equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) $1,890 plus the amount of any accrued and unpaid dividends (the "Conversion Amount"), by (y) the average closing bid prices for the twenty (20) consecutive Trading Days ending on the date immediately preceding fifteen (15) Trading Days immediately preceding the date of the meeting of the Corporation's stockholders to approve such Change of Control Transaction but in no event less than $1.38. The conversion set forth in this Section 6(b) related to a Change of Control Transaction shall be conditioned upon and shall be effective immediately prior to consummation of such Change of Control Transaction and all such shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall no longer be outstanding and shall be automatically cancelled and retired and shall cease to exist, and each certificate previously representing any such shares shall thereafter represent the right to receive a certificate representing the shares of Common Stock into which the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock was converted.

(c) Unless otherwise converted pursuant to Section 6(b), conditioned upon and effective immediately prior to the consummation of a Change of Control Transaction, each share of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall automatically be converted into that number of shares of Common Stock for each share of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock owned by such Holder on the Trading Day immediately preceding any such Change of Control Transaction as set forth in Section 4(a) of the Series C Certificate of Designations. All such shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall no longer be outstanding and shall be automatically cancelled and retired and shall cease to exist, and each certificate previously representing any such shares shall thereafter represent the right to receive a certificate representing the shares of Common Stock into which the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock was converted.

(d) The Corporation shall promptly mail written notice to the Holder of either the occurrence of, or the announcement of the Corporation's intent to engage in, a Change of Control Transaction (with a copy sent by facsimile), but in any event such notice (other than, if applicable, in the case of a Change of Control Transaction of the type set forth in clause (iii) of the definition of a Change of Control Transaction) shall not be given less than twenty (20) days prior to the effective date of such Change of Control Transaction."

SECTION 7. REACQUIRED SHARES.

Any shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock redeemed, purchased, converted or otherwise acquired by the Corporation in any manner whatsoever shall not be reissued as part of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock and shall be retired promptly after the acquisition thereof. All such shares of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock upon their retirement and

10

the filing of any certificate required in connection therewith pursuant to the Delaware General Corporation Law shall become authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock.

SECTION 8. EQUALITY.

All Holders of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall be subject to the same terms and conditions as set forth herein. No Holders of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall be entitled to or receive terms that are more favorable than those given to any other Holder of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock. In the event a Holder of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock is given by the Corporation or receives from the Corporation terms more favorable than those given by the Corporation or received from the Corporation by any other Holder of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, then in such event all Holders of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock shall be given and entitled to those more favorable terms.

(b) So long as any shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock are outstanding, the Corporation shall not, without first obtaining the approval of the Holders of at least ninety percent (90%) of the outstanding shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (excluding the Duggan Shares), authorize, create or issue any class or series of stock ranking prior to the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock with respect to the distribution of assets on liquidation, dissolution or winding up as provided in Section 12 below.

11

in accordance with the terms of this Section 11, rank senior to or pari passu with the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock being hereinafter referred to collectively as "Junior Securities"); (ii) pari passu with the Corporation's Series D Convertible Preferred Stock and any class or series of capital stock of the Corporation hereafter created (A) that has been consented to by the Holders of at least ninety percent (90%) of the outstanding shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (excluding the Duggan Shares) and (B) that, specifically by its terms and in accordance with the terms of this Section 11, ranks on a parity with the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Pari Passu Securities"); and (iii) junior to any class or series of capital stock of the Corporation hereafter created (A) that has been consented to by the Holders of at least ninety percent (90%) of the outstanding shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (excluding the Duggan Shares) and (B) that specifically, by its terms, ranks senior to the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (all of the foregoing, collectively, the "Senior Securities"), in each case as to distribution of assets upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary.

SECTION 12. LIQUIDATION PREFERENCE.

(a) If the Corporation shall commence a voluntary case under the U.S. Federal bankruptcy laws or any other applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law, or consent to the entry of an order for relief in an involuntary case under any law or to the appointment of a receiver, liquidator, assignee, custodian, trustee, sequestrator (or other similar official) of the Corporation or of any substantial part of its property, or make an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, or if a decree or order for relief in respect of the Corporation shall be entered by a court having jurisdiction in the premises in an involuntary case under the U.S. Federal bankruptcy laws or any other applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law resulting in the appointment of a receiver, liquidator, assignee, custodian, trustee, sequestrator (or other similar official) of the Corporation or of any substantial part of its property, or ordering the winding up or liquidation of its affairs, and any such decree or order shall be unstayed and in effect for a period of sixty (60) consecutive days and, on account of any such event, the Corporation shall liquidate, dissolve or wind up, or if the Corporation shall otherwise liquidate, dissolve or wind up (a "Liquidation Event"), no distribution shall be made to the holders of any shares of capital stock of the Corporation (other than Senior Securities and, together with the Holders of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, the Pari Passu Securities) upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up unless prior thereto the Holders shall have received the Liquidation Preference (as hereinafter defined) with respect to each share of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock. If, upon the occurrence of a Liquidation Event, the assets and funds available for distribution among the Holders and holders of Pari Passu Securities shall be insufficient to permit the payment to such Holders of the preferential amounts payable thereon, then the entire assets and funds of the Corporation legally available for distribution to the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock and the Pari Passu Securities shall be distributed ratably among such shares in proportion to the ratio that the Liquidation Preference payable on each such share bears to the aggregate Liquidation Preference payable on all such shares.

(b) The purchase or redemption by the Corporation of stock of any class or series, in any manner permitted by law, shall not, for the purposes hereof, be regarded as a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation. Neither the consolidation or merger of the

12

Corporation with or into any other entity nor the sale or transfer by the Corporation of all or substantially all of its assets shall, for the purposes hereof, be deemed to be a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation.

The failure of the Corporation or the Holder to insist upon strict adherence to any term of this Certificate of Designations on one or more occasions shall not be considered a waiver or deprive that party of the right thereafter to insist upon strict adherence to that term or any other term of this Certificate of Designations of the Series D Convertible Preferred Stock.
