ITEM 14. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS
The following discussion assumes that our reorganization has occurred.
Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the "DGCL") provides,
in effect, that any person made a party to any action by reason of the fact that
he is or was our director, officer, employee or agent may, and in certain cases
must, be indemnified by us against, in the case of a non-derivative action,
judgments, fines, amounts paid in settlement and reasonable expenses (including
attorneys' fees) incurred by him as a result of such action, and in the case of
a derivative action, against expenses (including attorneys' fees), if in either
type of action he acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to
be in or not opposed to our best interests. This indemnification does not apply,
in a derivative action, to matters as to which it is adjudged that the director,
officer, employee or agent is liable to us, unless upon court order it is
determined that, despite such adjudication of liability, but in view of all the
circumstances of the case, he is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for
expenses, and, in a non-derivative action, to any criminal proceeding in which
such person had reasonable cause to believe his conduct was unlawful.
Article VI of our Certificate of Incorporation provides that no director
shall be liable to us or our stockholders for monetary damages for breaches of
the director's fiduciary duties to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL.
Reference is made to Section 8 of the underwriting agreement to be filed as
Exhibit 1.1 hereto, pursuant to which the underwriters have agreed to indemnify
our officers and directors against certain liabilities under the Securities Act
We intend to enter into Indemnity Agreements with each director and certain
of our officers, a form of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this registration
statement. Pursuant to these agreements, we will be obligated, to the extent
permitted by applicable law, to indemnify these persons against all expenses,
judgments, fines and penalties incurred in connection with the defense or
settlement of any actions brought against them by reason of the fact that they
were our directors or officers or assumed
certain responsibilities at our direction. We also intend to purchase directors'
and officers' liability insurance in order to limit our exposure to liability
for indemnification of directors and officers.

ITEM 17. UNDERTAKINGS
The undersigned hereby undertakes to provide to the underwriters at the
closing specified in the underwriting agreement certificates in such
denominations and registered in such names as required by the underwriters to
permit prompt delivery to each purchaser.
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act
may be permitted to our directors, officers and controlling persons pursuant to
the DGCL, our Certificate of Incorporation, our Bylaws, the underwriting
agreement or otherwise, we have been advised that in the opinion of the
Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy
as expressed in the Securities Act, and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the
event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the
payment by us of expenses incurred or paid by one of our directors, officers, or
controlling persons in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding)
is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with
the securities being registered hereunder, we will, unless in the opinion of our
counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court
of appropriate jurisdiction the question of whether such indemnification by it
is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed
by the final adjudication of such issue.
We hereby undertake that:
1. For purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act,
the information omitted from the form of prospectus filed as part of this
registration statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of
prospectus filed by us pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h) under the
Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of this Registration Statement as
of the time it was declared effective.
2. For the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities
Act, each post-effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus shall
be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities
offered therein, and this offering of such securities at that time shall be
deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
