Mr. Holt otherwise notify the Company of its filing) until November 17, 1995,

defend the case vigorously.

claim of approximately $6 million against the Holt Affiliates in connection with

Holt Affiliates in the 1993 purchase agreement pursuant to which the Company
purchased Energy Industries from the Holt Affiliates. Mr. Holt has disputed the
claim and it remains unresolved.
