dispose of any of the TCID RMG Shares in violation of the registration and
qualification requirements of the federal and applicable state securities laws.

Shares will contain appropriate legends incorporating these applicable
securities laws restrictions.

Charter is an "accredited investor" as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D
under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") and (b)
Charter is acquiring the TCID RMG Shares for its own account, for investment
only and without a view to the distribution thereof except in a transaction
registered or qualified under the Securities Act, and applicable state
securities laws, or unless an exemption from those requirements is available.

inquiries and requests received from any other Governmental Authority in

protective order or other satisfactory assurance of confidential treatment, for
the information compelled to be disclosed. The obligation by either Party to
hold information in confidence pursuant to this Section will be satisfied if
such Party exercises the same care with respect to such information as it would
exercise to preserve the confidentiality of its own similar information. In the
event of termination of this Agreement, each Party will use all reasonable
efforts to cause to be delivered to the other, and retain no copies of, any
documents, work papers and other materials obtained by such Party or on its
behalf from the other, whether so obtained before or after the execution hereof

a decree of specific performance of this Agreement.

      10.4. Waiver. This Agreement or any of its provisions may not be waived

convenience only and do not constitute a part of this Agreement.

      10.6. Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in

jurisdiction would be required thereby).

      10.7. Time. Time is of the essence under this Agreement. If the last day
permitted for the giving of any notice or the performance of any act required or
permitted under this Agreement falls on a day which is not a Business Day, the

extended to the next succeeding Business Day.

date to the date of payment at the Prime Rate plus 2%, adjusted as and when
changes in the Prime Rate are made.

      10.9. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each
of which will be deemed an original.

agreement of the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and

to such subject matter. This Agreement may not be amended or modified except by
a writing signed by each of the parties hereto.

to be benefitted by such provision or any other provisions of this Agreement.

      10.12. Construction. This Agreement has been negotiated by the Parties and

each Party will pay all of its expenses, including attorneys' and accountants'
fees, in connection with the negotiation of this Agreement, the performance of
its obligations and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this
Agreement.

"commercially reasonable efforts" will not be deemed to require a Party to
