party and any others the indemnifying party may designate in such proceeding and
shall pay the fees and disbursements of such counsel related to such proceeding.
In any such proceeding, any indemnified party shall have the right to retain its
own counsel, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense
of such indemnified party unless (i) the indemnifying party and the indemnified
party shall have mutually agreed to the retention of such counsel or (ii) the
named parties to any such proceeding (including any impleaded parties) include
both the indemnifying party and the indemnified party and representation of both
parties by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to actual or potential
differing interests between them.  It is understood that the indemnifying party
shall not, in connection with any proceeding or related proceedings in the same
jurisdiction, be liable for (a) the fees and expenses of more than one separate
firm (in addition to any local counsel) for the Placement Agent and all persons,
if any, who control the Placement Agent within the meaning of either Section 15
of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act, (b) the fees and expenses of more
than one separate firm (in addition to any local counsel) for the Guarantor and
the Obligors, their directors or representatives, their officers who sign the
Registration Statement and each person, if any, who controls the Guarantor and
the Obligors within the meaning of either such Section and (c) the fees and
expenses of more than one separate firm (in addition to any local counsel) for
all Holders and all persons, if any, who control any Holders within the meaning
of either such Section, and that all such fees and expenses shall be reimbursed
as they are incurred.  In such case involving the Placement Agent and persons
who control the Placement Agent, such firm shall be designated in writing by the
Placement Agent.  In such case involving the Holders and such persons who
control any Holders, such firm shall be designated in writing by the Majority
Holders.  In all other cases, such firm shall be designated by the Guarantor and
the Obligors.  The indemnifying party shall not be liable for any settlement of
any proceeding effected without its written consent but, if settled with such
consent or if there be a final judgment for the plaintiff, the indemnifying
party agrees to indemnify the indemnified party from and against any loss or
liability by reason of such settlement or judgment.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing sentence, if at any time an indemnified party shall have requested an
indemnifying party to reimburse the indemnified party for fees and expenses of
counsel as contemplated by the second and third sentences of this paragraph, the
indemnifying party agrees that it shall be liable for any settlement of any
proceeding effected without its written consent if (i) such settlement is
entered into more than 60 days after receipt by such indemnifying party of the
aforesaid request and (ii) such indemnifying party shall not have reimbursed the
indemnified party for such fees and expenses of counsel in accordance with such
request prior to the date of such settlement.  No indemnifying party shall,
without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, effect any
settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which such
indemnified party is or could have been a party and indemnity could have been
sought hereunder by such indemnified party, unless such settlement includes an
unconditional release of such indemnified party from all liability on claims
that are the subject matter of such proceeding.
