Escrow Agent, in its sole and absolute discretion, to satisfy any Liabilities (as defined below);
WHEREAS, the Company, Hodges and GFS desire to appoint Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP to
act as Escrow Agent for the Escrowed Amount and any other funds deposited or held in the Escrow

income or earnings thereon; and

and dispose of the Escrowed Amount in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.
2. Deposit of Escrowed Amount.
(a) At or prior to the Closing, the Company shall deposit with the Escrow Agent certificates
registered in the name of the Escrow Agent representing the Escrowed Shares.
(b) At any time, and from time to time, Hodges may substitute Escrowed Cash in immediately
available funds, delivered to the Escrow Account in accordance with the wiring instructions
attached hereto as Annex I, in exchange for any unsold Escrowed Shares registered in the
Escrow Agents name. The amount of Escrowed Cash required to replace Escrowed Shares shall equal
$1.00 per Escrowed Share (subject to adjustment in the case of stock splits and similar

Escrowed Shares, including following notice.
(c) So long as the Escrow Agent is holding the Escrowed Cash or any other funds or cash in the
Escrow Account in accordance with this Agreement, it shall invest such Escrowed Cash, funds or cash
in a federally insured bank or money-market account. The Escrow Agent shall have no duty,
responsibility or obligation to invest any Escrowed Cash or any other funds or cash held in the
Escrow Account other than in accordance with Sections 2 and 3 hereof. The Escrow Agent shall have
no liability or responsibility for any investment losses, including without limitation any market
loss on any investment liquidated (whether at or prior to maturity) in order to make a payment
required under this Agreement. The Escrow Agent may, in making or disposing of any investment
permitted by this Agreement, deal with itself, in its individual capacity, or any of its
affiliates, whether or not it or such affiliate is acting as a subagent of the Escrow Agent or for
any third person or dealing as principal for its own account.
(d) The Escrow Agent is hereby directed to hold the Escrowed Amount in the Escrow Account and
to retain and dispose of the Escrowed Amount in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.
3. Amounts Earned or Lost on Escrowed Amount. All amounts earned on the investment
of the Escrowed Cash shall be credited to, and shall become part of, the Escrowed Cash, and any
losses on any such investments shall be debited to the Escrowed Cash. The Escrow Agent is hereby
authorized and instructed to promptly deliver all amounts earned on the Escrowed Shares (dividends
or other distributions), upon the transfer of such amounts into the Escrow Account, and all amounts
in excess of the Liabilities as shall be finally determined, and unliquidated Escrowed Shares,
shall be delivered to Hodges upon termination of the Agreement, provided, however,
that if there remain any contingent Liabilities, the Escrow Agent may establish a reasonable
reserve for payment or settlement of such contingencies.
4. Registration and Sale of Payment Shares; Payment of Liabilities.
(a) As soon as practicable following the Closing of the Merger, the Company shall prepare and
file with the Securities and Exchange Commission a registration statement covering the
Escrowed Shares. The Company shall use its best efforts to cause the registration statement
to be declared effective under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), as
soon as possible. The Company shall use its best efforts to keep the registration statement
continuously effective under the Securities Act for a period of 12 months, unless all Escrowed
Shares covered by such registration statement have been sold, or may be sold, without restriction
or limitation pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act, as determined by the counsel to the
(b) The Escrow Agent, upon receipt of written instructions from the Chief Financial Officer of
the Company, is hereby authorized and instructed to sell such number of Escrowed Shares as may be
reasonably required to satisfy any Liability as is set forth in the instruction. The Escrow Agent
shall deliver the proceeds to the claimant or to the Company to pay the Liabilities. In the event
the Escrow Agent has more proceeds than necessary to cover the Liabilities, such amount shall
remain in the Escrow Account pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. The Escrow Agent shall have
no liability or responsibility for the sales price of the Escrowed Shares, nor shall the Escrow
Agent be obligated to sell Escrowed Shares in any market, or in any particular manner, as long as
Escrow Agent acts reasonably, given the nature, timing and amount of such sales.
||Release of Escrowed Amount.
(a) In the event GFS or the Company is found to be liable for a Liability, as soon as
practicable after the settlement or applicable judgment is issued and receipt by the Escrow Agent
of written instructions from the Chief Financial Officer of the Company, the Escrow Agent is hereby
authorized and instructed to deliver to the Company or the claimant an amount of Escrowed Cash or
Escrowed Shares equal to the amount of such Liability. If the Escrowed Cash at any time is not
sufficient to cover such Liability, then the Escrow Agent shall be entitled to sell the
certificates representing such number of Escrowed Shares equal to the remaining amount of the
Liability, and the Escrow Agent shall deliver such proceeds from the sale to the claimant or the
Company to be used to satisfy the Liability. The Escrow Agent shall have complete and absolute
discretion on the method and timing of the sale.
(b) Subject to the provisions of Sections 6, 7 and 8 below, at or as soon as practicable after
the three (3) year anniversary of the date hereof (the Release Date), the Escrow Agent is hereby
authorized and instructed to deliver to Hodges the certificates representing all remaining Escrowed
Shares and the remaining Escrowed Cash held in the Escrow Account.
6. Claims Against Escrowed Amount. At any time or times prior to the Release Date,
the Company may make claims for Liabilities against the Escrowed Amount. The Company shall
simultaneously notify Hodges and the Escrow Agent in writing of each such claim (the Claim
Notice), which shall include a brief description of the amount and nature of such claim, and a
good faith estimate of the amount of cash and the number of shares, if any, to be withheld by the
Escrow Agent if such claim is not resolved or otherwise adjudicated by the Release Date. If Hodges
shall reasonably dispute such claim, he shall give written notice thereof to the Company and to the
Escrow Agent (the Dispute Notice) so that the Dispute Notice is received by the Company and the
Escrow Agent within twenty (20) calendar days after the date on which the Escrow Agent and Hodges
received such Claim Notice, in which case the Escrow Agent is hereby authorized and instructed to
continue to hold the cash and shares specified in the Claim Notice in accordance with the terms of
If the Escrow Agent does not receive the Dispute Notice within such twenty-day period, then such
claim shall be deemed to have been acknowledged by Hodges as valid and the Escrow Agent is hereby
authorized and instructed to promptly deliver to the Company, the amount of cash and the number of
shares in the amounts specified in the Claim Notice. If the amount of the claim exceeds the
Escrowed Amount, the Escrow Agent shall not have any liability or responsibility for any
deficiency. The Escrow Agent shall have no liability or responsibility for the performance of any
calculations pursuant to this Agreement.
7. Disputed Claims.
(a) If Hodges shall dispute a Claim Notice issued by the Company within such twenty-day period
as provided above, the Escrow Agent shall set aside the cash and shares specified in the Claim
Notice (the Set Aside Amount). In the event the Company notifies the Escrow Agent in writing
(the Expense Notice) that it has made out-of-pocket expenditures or anticipates that it will
incur legal expenses in connection with any such disputed claim, the Escrow Agent shall also set
aside the cash and shares specified in the Expense Notice, which shall be added to and become a
part of the Set Aside Amount, which aggregate Set Aside Amount shall be set forth in a written
notice to the Escrow Agent and Hodges executed by the Company; provided, however,
that in the event and to the extent that it shall be agreed (as evidenced by a written notice
executed by the Company and Hodges) or determined through a proceeding described in Section 7(b)
below, that the Company is not entitled to indemnification with respect to such claim, then the
Company shall not be entitled to such shares or such cash and the Escrow Agent is hereby authorized
and instructed to hold the shares and cash in the Escrow Account until the Release Date and such
amount shall then be distributed in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
(b) If within thirty (30) days after the date on which the Escrow Agent received a Dispute
Notice, the Escrow Agent has not received written notice executed by the Company and Hodges stating
that the disputed indemnification claim has been resolved, the Escrow Agent is hereby authorized
and instructed to continue to hold the Set Aside Amount until directed to distribute it pursuant to
(i) a final non-appealable order of a court of competent jurisdiction or taxing authority (or the
expiration of any applicable appeal period) or (ii) joint instructions or directions furnished in
writing signed by the Company and Hodges. In no event shall the Escrow Agent be responsible for
any fees or expenses of any party to any litigation proceeding.
8. Termination; Distribution. Except as set forth in Sections 9 and 10 hereof, this
Agreement shall terminate on the Release Date, provided that there are no outstanding
Liability claims as to which the Escrow Agent has received a Claim Notice pursuant to Section 6
hereof; otherwise this Agreement shall continue in effect until the resolution of all such
Liability claims. On the Release Date or as soon thereafter as is practicable, pursuant to and in
accordance with joint written instructions of the Company and Hodges, the Escrow Agent is hereby
authorized and instructed to distribute the remaining Escrowed Amount less (i) the amount of any
then existing Set Aside Amount and (ii) the amount specified by the Company in any Claim Notice
delivered to the Escrow Agent on or within 30 days prior to the Release Date with respect to which
no Set Aside Amount has yet been established, and the Escrow Agent has not otherwise been
instructed in writing by the Company and Hodges. At such time thereafter as any remaining
Liability claim hereunder has been resolved and the Escrow Agent has received a written notice
executed by the Company and Hodges to that effect and any shares to be
distributed to the Company for cancellation and any cash in connection therewith have been so
distributed, the Escrow Agent is hereby authorized and instructed to distribute any portion of the
remaining Escrowed Amount relating to such Liability claim to Hodges, and this Agreement shall then
terminate. The Company shall not be required to issue certificates for fractional shares in any
distribution of Escrowed Shares pursuant to this Agreement; but rather shall be entitled to round
such shares to a whole number, based upon a reasonable method to be agreed upon by the Company and

to an Indemnitee under Section 9(b). To the extent that (i) the Escrow Agent in its sole
discretion decides to charge against and withhold from the Escrow Account any such amounts and the
Escrowed Amount is insufficient to pay the amounts due to the Escrow Agent under this Section 9(a)
or to an Indemnitee under Section 9(b) or (ii) the Escrow Agent decides not to charge and withhold
any such amounts from the Escrow Account, the Company agrees to pay such amounts to the Escrow
Agent or such Indemnitee on demand. The obligations contained in this Section 9(a) shall survive
the termination of this Agreement and the resignation or removal of the Escrow Agent.
(b) The Company agrees to indemnify, defend, protect, save and keep harmless the Escrow Agent

settlements, actions, suits, proceedings, litigation, investigations, costs or expenses, including
without limitation reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel (collectively Losses), that may
be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against any Indemnitee, at any time, and in any way
relating to or arising out of the execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement, the
enforcement of any rights or remedies under or in connection with this Agreement, the establishment
of the Escrow Account, the acceptance or administration of the Escrowed Amount and any payment,
transfer or other application of funds pursuant to this Agreement, or as may arise by reason of any
act, omission or error of the Indemnitee. The obligations contained in this Section 9(b) shall
survive the termination of this Agreement and the resignation or removal of the Escrow Agent.
(c) The Escrow Agent shall not be liable for any error of judgment or for any action taken,
suffered or omitted to be taken, except in the case of its own gross negligence or bad faith, as

jurisdiction. In no event shall the Escrow Agent be (i) liable for acting in accordance with a
notice, instruction, direction, request or other communication, paper or document from Hodges, the
Company or any other person or entity authorized to deliver such hereunder, or (ii) liable or
responsible for special, punitive, indirect, consequential or incidental loss or damages of any
kind whatsoever to any person or entity (including without limitation lost profits), even if the
Escrow Agent has been advised of the likelihood of such loss or damage. Any liability of the
Escrow Agent under this Agreement will be limited to the amount of fees paid to the Escrow Agent.
(d) The Escrow Agent shall act hereunder as an escrow agent only and shall not be responsible
or liable in any matter whatsoever for the sufficiency, collection, correctness, genuineness or
validity or any revenues, cash, payments, securities, property, funds, investments, income,
earnings, or other amounts deposited with or held by it or for the identity, authority or rights of

hereunder, the Escrow Agent shall be entitled to refrain from taking any action other than to keep

income and earnings thereon. Any disbursement of the Escrowed Amount or payments from the Escrow
Account shall be subject to withholding taxes and regulations then in force under the United States
