intent of the Buyer to enter into new contracts with Hallwood and Infinity,

                    the Second Installment, being sometimes hereinafter
                    individually referred to as an "Installment Payment" and

                    within ten (10) days of the execution by both parties of
                    this Agreement, provided that the Buyer shall not be
                    obligated pay the Second Installment unless and until the
                    Seller shall have delivered to the Buyer the Lien Release
                    Confirmation; and

               (c)  The balance of the Purchase Price shall be paid in United
                    States currency (the "Purchase Price Balance") upon the
                    acceptance by Buyer of the delivery by Seller to Buyer of
                    the last to be delivered of the Assets, in accordance with
                    Sections 8.08 and 9.04, subject to Sections 2.02 and 12.03
                    hereof.

         3.02   Deposit and Installment Payments. The Deposit shall be
nonrefundable, unless the Seller shall breach its obligations to deliver the
Assets in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Buyer shall elect
to rescind this Agreement as a result of such breach, in which case, the Deposit
shall be fully refunded to Buyer, without prejudice to any other remedies that
the Buyer may have with respect to such breach. If no Assets are delivered to
Buyer hereunder solely as a result of a breach of this Agreement by Buyer, the
Deposit shall be paid to or retained by Seller, in which case, the parties agree
(i) that the amount of the Deposit (A) constitutes liquidated damages for
Buyer's breach of this Agreement and (B) is not a penalty, and (ii) the amount
of the Deposit shall be the limit of Buyer's liability for any breach of this
Agreement. In the event that the Buyer has paid the Second Installment to
Seller, but no Assets have been delivered to Buyer hereunder on or prior to
September 30, 2005, Buyer shall be entitled to a return of the Second
Installment, without prejudice to any other rights that the Buyer may have in
the event that the failure of such delivery is a result of a breach by Seller
hereunder. In the event that the Buyer has paid the Second Installment to
Seller, and Seller breaches its obligations to deliver all of the Assets to
Buyer hereunder on or before September 30, 2005, and Buyer elects to rescind
this Agreement to the extent of any Assets not delivered by Seller in accordance
with the terms of this Agreement, Buyer shall be entitled to a return of such
portion of the Second Installment, if any, as shall be equal to the amount by
which the Second Installment exceeds the value of the Assets delivered by Seller
under this Agreement, without prejudice to any other rights that the Buyer may
have in the event that the failure of such delivery is a result of a breach by
Seller. On the Final Delivery Date, the Installment Payments shall be applied
towards the Purchase Price for the Assets hereunder.

Agreement, together with the various schedules and exhibits hereto, Seller has
not made any untrue statements of a material fact or omitted to state a material
fact necessary in order to make the statements made by it herein not misleading.

         4.11   Sales Tax Exemption. To the knowledge and belief of Seller, the
conveyance of the Assets by Seller is an occasional sale under Section 151.304
of the Texas Tax Code and the rules promulgated thereunder and is thus exempt
