Pursuant to the Agreement, Mr. Workman agreed to a non-disclosure covenant (unlimited as to time), a 12-month non-competition covenant, and a 12-month non-solicitation covenant. Mr. Workman also agreed to cooperate with the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates both in defense of any claims asserted against them and otherwise. As consideration for entering into the Agreement, Mr. Workman will be paid a lump sum of $250,000 after the Company files its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
