Appendix


CONDITIONS TO CONSUMMATION OF THE TRANSACTION

The Transaction is conditional upon:

(a)       The Company having obtained the Required Shareholder Vote at the Special Meeting (including any adjournment or postponement thereof).

(b)       There not having been in effect any law, temporary restraining order, executive order, notice, decree, ruling, judgment or injunction or other order of a court or Governmental Entity of competent jurisdiction preventing the Transaction from being consummated.

(d)       (i)              The representations and warranties of AMVAC contained in the Merger Agreement (other than those relating to Merger Sub) having been true and correct when made and at and as of the Effective Time with the same effect as though made as of the Effective Time except (x) for changes expressly permitted by the terms of the Merger Agreement, (y) that the accuracy of representations and warranties that by their terms speak as of the date of the Merger Agreement or some other date will be determined as of such date and not as of the Effective Time, and (z) where any such failure of the representations and warranties in the aggregate to be true and correct would not constitute a Parent Material Adverse Effect (without giving effect to any "materiality" or "Parent Material Adverse Effect" qualifications contained therein); and (ii) the representations and warranties of AMVAC relating to Merger Sub having been true and correct in all respects both when made and at and as of the Effective Time except (x) for changes specifically permitted by the terms of the Transaction, and (y) the accuracy of representations and warranties that by their terms speak as of the date of the Merger Agreement or some other date will be determined as of such date; and the Company shall have received a certificate executed by a senior executive officer of AMVAC on its behalf to the foregoing effect.

(e)       AMVAC and Merger Sub shall have performed and complied with in all material respects their obligations under the Merger Agreement to be performed or complied with on or prior to the Effective Time, and the Company shall have received a certificate executed by a senior executive officer of AMVAC to the foregoing effect.

(f)        Since the date of the Merger Agreement, there shall not have occurred and be continuing any Parent Material Adverse Effect.

(g)       (i)              The representations and warranties of the Company contained in the Merger Agreement (other certain fundamental warranties)  having been true and correct when made and at and as of the Effective Time with the same effect as though made as of the Effective Time, except (x) for changes expressly permitted by the terms of the Merger Agreement, (y) that the accuracy of representations and warranties that by their terms speak as of the date of the Merger Agreement or some other date will be determined as of such date, and (z) where any such failure of the representations and warranties in the aggregate to be true and correct does not and would not constitute a Company Material Adverse Effect (without giving effect to any "materiality" or "Company Material Adverse Effect" qualifications contained therein); and (ii) certain fundamental warranties of the Company shall be true and correct in all respects, both when made and at and as of the Effective Time, and (iii) the representations and warranties of the Company relating to its share capital shall be true and correct in all respects both when made and at and as of the Effective Time and except for such inaccuracies that in the aggregate would not result in an aggregate increase in the consideration paid in excess of $25,000 (such increase determined taking into account any surrender of shares or payment or reimbursement made to AMVAC by any stockholder of the Company prior to the Effective Time in order to cure such failure of the condition to be satisfied); and AMVAC shall have received a certificate executed by a senior executive officer of the Company on its behalf to the foregoing effect.

(h)       The Company shall have performed and complied with in all material respects its obligations under the Merger Agreement to be performed or complied with on or prior to the Effective Time, and AMVAC shall have received a certificate executed by a senior executive officer of the Company to the foregoing effect.
