PROSPECTUS SUMMARY

THIS SUMMARY HIGHLIGHTS INFORMATION CONTAINED ELSEWHERE IN THIS PROSPECTUS. THIS SUMMARY IS NOT INTENDED TO CONTAIN ALL OF THE INFORMATION THAT INVESTORS SHOULD CONSIDER BEFORE INVESTING IN OUR SHARES. YOU SHOULD READ THE ENTIRE PROSPECTUS CAREFULLY BEFORE PURCHASING OUR SHARES.

We are a newly organized, closed-end investment company that has elected to be treated as a business development company under the Investment Company Act. Our investment adviser is meVC Advisers, Inc., or meVC Advisers. Our investment sub-adviser is Draper Fisher Jurvetson MeVC Management Co., LLC, or Draper Advisers. Both meVC Advisers and Draper Advisers are registered investment advisers under the Investment Advisers Act.

meVC Advisers will implement our investment objective and strategies, and will set our strategic and operational direction. meVC Advisers will also manage our day-to-day operations, including our accounting, finance, marketing, record-keeping and regulatory compliance efforts.

Draper Advisers will identify, structure and negotiate investments for the fund, and will monitor and assist our portfolio companies. There are 18 members of Draper Advisers, including Timothy C. Draper, John Fisher, Steve Jurvetson, and 15 other experienced venture capital managers located throughout the country. Collectively, the members of Draper Advisers have over 50 years of venture capital investing and entrepreneurial management experience, and have raised in excess of $800 million in over ten venture capital funds.

The members of Draper Advisers manage their own private venture capital funds and personal funds, and we expect that most investments of the fund will be co-investments alongside these private funds. Our board of directors will review all co-investments with affiliated funds.

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE AND PRINCIPAL STRATEGIES

Our investment objective is long-term capital appreciation from venture capital investments in information technology companies, primarily in the Internet, e-commerce, telecommunications, networking, software, and intranet infrastructure industries. We will invest only in companies that we believe will experience high growth over the long term.

After carefully selecting our portfolio companies, we will seek to enhance their competitiveness by providing them with significant managerial assistance in strategy formulation, recruiting, and general business operations. We will seek to provide returns to our stockholders through long-term appreciation in the value of our portfolio companies and through distributions of capital gains on our investments. In addition, if a portfolio company is sold, merged or goes public, we may distribute cash or stock in either the portfolio company or the acquiring company.

INVESTMENT RATIONALE

Information technology, including Internet, e-commerce, telecommunications, networking, software, intranet infrastructure and other information services, is the most rapidly growing large sector of the U.S. economy. Many new companies are at the forefront of innovation in these industries. The Internet, in particular, has created a playing field where information technology businesses can grow at an unprecedented pace. By moving quickly, new companies can position themselves as leaders in their respective markets, often attracting key strategic partners and influential early adopting customers. These young companies often build category-defining brands that create an ongoing competitive advantage. We intend to invest in companies that we believe have the greatest potential to be the major information technology businesses of the future.

HISTORICAL PERFORMANCE OF VENTURE CAPITAL FUNDS

The venture capital industry as a whole has experienced long-term returns that have exceeded the S&P 500 Index by over 8% per year for a five and ten year period. According to Venture Economics, for all reporting venture capital funds formed between 1988 and 1998, the historical average annual rate of return, net of fees and expenses, as of June 30, 1999 was as follows:

                                                1 YEAR RETURN   5 YEAR RETURN   10 YEAR RETURN
                                                -------------   -------------   --------------
Venture Capital (1)...........................      50.3%           39.8%            27.0%
S&P 500 (2)...................................      22.8%           27.9%            18.8%


(1) Venture Economics benchmark for all funds formed between 1988 and 1998 as of June 30, 1999. Data is net of fees and caried interest.

(2) S&P 500 Index as of June 30, 1999, according to Standard & Poor's.

PAST PERFORMANCE OF THE VENTURE CAPITAL FUND INDUSTRY IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF THE FUTURE PERFORMANCE OF THE VENTURE CAPITAL SECTOR. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT WE WILL MEET OR EXCEED THE RATES OF RETURN HISTORICALLY REALIZED BY THE VENTURE CAPITAL INDUSTRY AS A WHOLE. ADDITIONALLY, OUR RETURNS WILL LIKELY BE REDUCED DUE TO FEDERAL LEGISLATION REGULATING BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT COMPANIES, AS WELL AS THE TIME IT MAY TAKE TO FULLY INVEST THE PROCEEDS OF THIS OFFERING, AS DISTINGUISHED FROM TRADITIONAL VENTURE CAPITAL FUNDS WHICH ARE NOT SUBJECT TO THE SAME FEDERAL REGULATION AND CALL IN CAPITAL FROM THEIR INVESTORS OVER TIME AS INVESTMENTS ARE MADE.

COMPENSATION OF INVESTMENT ADVISER AND INVESTMENT SUB-ADVISER

As compensation for its investment advisory and management and administrative services, we have agreed to pay meVC Advisers an annual management fee equal to 2.5% of our average weekly net assets, payable in monthly installments. We have also agreed to pay to meVC Advisers annual incentive compensation equal to 20% of our annual realized capital gains net of realized and unrealized capital losses. Payment of this type of incentive-based compensation, referred to as a "carried interest," is typical in the venture capital industry. Carried interest payments provide an economic incentive for venture capital fund managers to select investments with the potential to achieve the greatest increase in value over time. We believe that payment of a carried interest is an important component of our ability to attract and retain high quality venture capital fund managers.

As payment for its services as our Investment Sub-Adviser, meVC Advisers has agreed to pay to Draper Advisers a portion of the management fee equal to 40% of any amounts it receives from us, that is an amount equal to 1.0% of our average weekly net assets. meVC Advisers has also agreed to pay Draper Advisers additional compensation equal to 90% of any carried interest payment it receives from us, that is an amount equal to 18% of our annual realized capital gains net of realized and unrealized capital losses.

RISK FACTORS

Purchasing shares of our common stock carries significant risk of losing some or all of your investment. You should consider the risk factors described on pages to of this prospectus and the impact of events that could adversely effect our business prior to investing in our shares.

CLOSED-END FUND STRUCTURE

We are a newly-organized closed-end fund. Closed-end funds differ from open-end funds (which are commonly referred to as mutual funds) in that closed-end funds, unlike mutual funds, generally list their shares for trading on a stock exchange and do not redeem their shares at the request of a shareholder. This means that if you wish to sell your shares of a closed-end fund you must trade them on the market like any other stock at the price prevailing in the market for the shares at that time. With a mutual fund, shares may be redeemed or bought back by the mutual fund at "net asset value" if a shareholder wishes to sell the

5

shares of the fund. Also, mutual funds generally offer new shares of the fund on a continuous basis to new investors, whereas closed-end funds do not. The continuous in-flows and out-flows of assets in a mutual fund can make it more difficult to manage the investments of a mutual fund. By comparison, closed-end funds are generally able to stay more fully invested in securities that are consistent with their investment objectives, and also have greater flexibility to make certain types of investments and to use certain investment strategies, such as financial leverage.

However, shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value. Because of this possibility, which may not be in your interest, our investment advisers might consider engaging in open market repurchases, tender offers for shares at net asset value or other programs intended to reduce the discount. There is, of course, no guarantee or assurance that our investment advisers will decide to engage in any of these actions. Nor is there any guarantee or assurance that such actions, if undertaken, would result in the shares trading at a price equal or close to net asset value per share. Our investment advisers might also consider converting us to an open-end mutual fund, which would also require a vote of our shareholders. We believe however, that the closed-end structure is desirable, in light of our investment objective and policies. Therefore, you should assume that it is not likely that we would vote to convert to an open-end fund.

LIQUIDATION

Our board of directors may elect to liquidate the Fund and distribute to you any proceeds in cash or securities after , 2009 if it believes doing so would be in your best interests.

                                            carefully selecting our portfolio companies, we will
                                            seek to enhance their competitiveness by providing them
                                            with significant managerial assistance in strategy
                                            formulation, recruiting, and general business
                                            operations. We will seek to provide returns to our
                                            stockholders through long-term appreciation in the value
                                            of our portfolio companies and through distributions of
                                            capital gains on our investments. In addition, if a
                                            portfolio company is sold, merged or goes public, we
                                            will distribute either cash or stock in either the
                                            portfolio company or the acquiring company.

Investment Advisory Services..............  Our investment adviser is meVC Advisers, Inc and our
                                            investment sub-adviser is Draper Fisher Jurvetson MeVC
                                            Management Co., LLC.

Principal strategies......................  - Focus our investments on young companies that have not
                                            yet sold shares in an initial public offering and, in
                                              our opinion, exhibit the greatest potential for high
                                              long-term growth.
                                            - Direct our investments to information technology
                                            companies, primarily in the Internet, e-commerce,
                                              telecommunications, networking, software, and intranet
                                              infrastructure industries, and to companies operating
                                              in other new or emerging markets.
                                            - Exercise investment discipline through pro-active risk
                                              management and diversification.
                                            - Leverage the expertise, contacts and superior access
                                            to potential investments that the members of Draper
                                              Advisers have gained through many years of venture
                                              capital investing.
                                            - Enhance the competitiveness of our portfolio companies
                                            by providing them with significant managerial
                                              assistance.

Use of proceeds...........................  We will use the proceeds from the offering to make
                                            investments in portfolio companies in accordance with
                                            our investment objective and strategies. We may also
                                            invest up to 10% of our net assets in an index of
                                            publicly-traded information technology companies seeking
                                            to enhance the yield on our longer-term reserves for
                                            follow-on investments in portfolio companies. We
                                            anticipate that we will initially raise $      in
                                            proceeds from this offering. We expect that it will take
                                            two years before we are substantially invested in
                                            portfolio companies.

7

Distributions.............................  We will distribute annually at least 90% of the net
                                            dividend and interest income we receive from our
                                            investments. During the period in which we are
                                            evaluating and selecting portfolio companies in which to
                                            invest, we will invest our capital primarily in
                                            short-term investment grade securities. These
                                            investments will generate interest income for
                                            distribution to our stockholders. However, as we invest
                                            the proceeds of this offering in portfolio companies, we
                                            will have less interest income available for
                                            distribution to you.

                                            At the discretion of our board of directors, we also
                                            intend to distribute the capital gains we generate. In
                                            addition, if a portfolio company is sold, merged or goes
                                            public, we may distribute cash or stock in either the
                                            portfolio company or the acquiring company.

Suitability requirements..................  To purchase our shares, you should either have (i) a net
                                            worth of at least $150,000 (not including the value of
                                            your home) or (ii) a net worth of at least $50,000 (not
                                            including the value of your home) and annual gross
                                            income of at least $50,000. You should not purchase our
                                            shares if you believe you may need to sell our shares in
                                            the near term. You should not invest more than 10% of
                                            your net worth in our shares.

Sales fees and commissions................  Our shares are initially being offered through a group
                                            of brokers and dealers selected by meVC Advisers. We
                                            have agreed to pay a   % sales commission to these
                                            brokers and dealers on each sale of our shares.

RISK FACTORS

You should carefully consider the following risk factors in addition to the other information set forth in this prospectus before purchasing our shares. Investing in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. Purchasing shares of our common stock carries significant risk of losing some or all of your investment.

INVESTMENT RISK

INVESTING IN OUR COMMON STOCK IS HIGHLY SPECULATIVE, AND YOU COULD LOSE SOME OR ALL OF THE AMOUNT YOU INVEST.

The value of our common stock may decline and may be affected by numerous market conditions. The securities markets frequently experience extreme price and volume fluctuation which affect market prices for securities of companies generally, and technology companies in particular. Because of our focus on the technology sector, our stock price is likely to be impacted by these market conditions. General economic conditions, and general conditions in the Internet and high technology industries, will also affect our stock price.

VENTURE CAPITAL RISKS

THE INABILITY OF OUR PORTFOLIO COMPANIES TO COMMERCIALIZE THEIR TECHNOLOGY OR CREATE OR DEVELOP A COMMERCIALLY VIABLE PRODUCT WOULD HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON OUR INVESTMENT RETURNS.

The possibility that these companies will not be able to commercialize their technology or product concept presents significant risk associated with investing in emerging growth information technology companies. Additionally, although some of our portfolio companies may already have a commercially successful product or product line when we invest, information technology products and services often have a more limited market or life span than products in other industries. Thus, the ultimate success of these companies may depend on their ability to continually innovate in increasingly competitive markets.

THE INABILITY OF OUR PORTFOLIO COMPANIES TO SUCCESSFULLY MARKET THEIR PRODUCTS WOULD HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON OUR INVESTMENT RETURNS.

Even if our portfolio companies are able to develop commercially viable products, the market for new products and services is highly competitive and rapidly changing. Commercial success is difficult to predict and the marketing efforts of our portfolio companies may not be successful.

AN INVESTMENT STRATEGY FOCUSED PRIMARILY ON PRIVATELY-HELD COMPANIES PRESENTS CERTAIN CHALLENGES, INCLUDING THE LACK OF AVAILABLE INFORMATION ABOUT THESE COMPANIES, A DEPENDENCE ON THE TALENTS AND EFFORTS OF ONLY A FEW INDIVIDUALS AND A GREATER VULNERABILITY TO ECONOMIC DOWNTURNS.

We will invest primarily in privately-held companies. Generally, very little public information exists about these companies and we will be required to rely on the ability of Draper Advisers to obtain adequate information to evaluate the potential returns from investing in these companies. Moreover, these companies typically depend upon the management talents and efforts of a small group of individuals and the loss of one or more of these individuals could have a significant impact on the investment returns from a particular portfolio company. Also, these companies frequently have less diverse product lines and smaller market presence than larger competitors. They are thus generally more vulnerable to economic downturns and may experience substantial variations in operating results.

OUR PORTFOLIO COMPANIES WILL LIKELY HAVE SIGNIFICANT COMPETITION, BOTH FROM OTHER EARLY-STAGE COMPANIES AND MORE ESTABLISHED COMPANIES.

Emerging growth companies often face significant competition, both from other early-stage companies and from more established companies. Early-stage competitors may have strategic capabilities such as an innovative management team or an ability to react quickly to changing market conditions, while more established companies may possess significantly more experience and greater financial resources than our portfolio companies.

10

OUR INVESTMENT RETURNS WILL DEPEND ON THE SUCCESS OF OUR PORTFOLIO COMPANIES AND, ULTIMATELY, THE ABILITIES OF THEIR KEY PERSONNEL.

Our success will depend upon the success of our portfolio companies. Their success, in turn, will depend in large part upon the abilities of their key personnel. The day-to-day operations of our portfolio companies will remain the responsibility of their key personnel. Competition for qualified personnel is intense at any stage of a company's development and high turnover of personnel is common in information technology companies. The loss of one or a few key managers can hinder or delay a company's implementation of its business plan. Our portfolio companies may not be able to attract and retain qualified managers and personnel. Any inability to do so may negatively impact our investment returns.

OUR PORTFOLIO COMPANIES WILL LIKELY HAVE A NEED TO RAISE ADDITIONAL EQUITY FINANCING WHICH MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE.

Most of our portfolio companies will require substantial additional equity financing to satisfy their continuing working capital requirements. Each round of venture financing is typically intended to provide a company with enough capital to reach the next stage of development. We cannot predict the circumstances or market conditions under which our portfolio companies will seek additional capital. It is possible that one or more of our portfolio companies will not be able to raise additional financing or may be able to do so only at a price or on terms which are unfavorable to us.

RISKS OF THE FUND

THERE IS CURRENTLY NO MARKET FOR OUR SHARES AND WE DO NOT INTEND TO LIST OUR SHARES ON AN EXCHANGE UNTIL THREE TO TWELVE MONTHS FOLLOWING THIS OFFERING. EVEN IF A SECONDARY MARKET FOR OUR SHARES DOES DEVELOP, BECAUSE WE ARE A CLOSED-END FUND, OUR SHARES MAY TRADE AT A DISCOUNT TO THEIR NET ASSET VALUE.

There is currently no secondary market for our shares and we do not anticipate that one will develop in the near future, if ever. We do not intend to list our shares on a securities exchange until six months following this offering. Additionally, because we are a closed-end investment company, we cannot redeem our shares on an ongoing basis and our stockholders cannot exchange their shares of our common stock for shares of any other fund. Therefore, it will be difficult for you to sell your shares in the short term. Even after the development of a secondary trading market, shares of closed-end investment companies often trade below their net asset value.

WE ARE NOT LIKELY TO REALIZE RETURNS ON OUR INVESTMENTS IN PORTFOLIO COMPANIES FOR SEVERAL YEARS. THUS, AN INVESTMENT IN SHARES OF OUR COMMON STOCK IS ONLY APPROPRIATE FOR INVESTORS WHO DO NOT NEED SHORT-TERM LIQUIDITY IN AN INVESTMENT IN OUR SHARES.

We intend to make investments as rapidly as possible consistent with our investment objective. However, it is likely that a significant period of time will be required before we are able to fully invest the proceeds of this offering. Additionally, a venture capital investment typically takes at least several years before the portfolio company is in a position to sell its shares in a public offering or engage in a sale or merger. The securities of our portfolio companies will be "restricted" under Rule 144 of the Securities Act and thus can not be sold unless we satisfy the requirements of Rule 144. Accordingly, it will likely be several years before we are able to sell our investments and make any distributions of gains to our stockholders.

WE HAVE NOT YET IDENTIFIED ANY PORTFOLIO COMPANY INVESTMENTS AND OUR STOCKHOLDERS WILL NOT HAVE ANY CONTROL OVER OUR FUTURE INVESTMENT DECISIONS.

We have not yet identified any potential investments for our portfolio and, thus, you will not be able to evaluate any specific portfolio company investments prior to purchasing shares of our common stock. Our stockholders will not have any control over our future investment decisions and, thus, you must rely solely upon our board of directors, meVC Advisers and Draper Advisers to evaluate companies and make investment decisions for the fund.

11

VALUING OUR PORTFOLIO IN THE FUTURE WILL BE DIFFICULT AND INEXACT AND MAY NOT REFLECT THE TRUE VALUE OF OUR INVESTMENTS IN PORTFOLIO COMPANIES.

Our board of directors will value our portfolio from time to time based on their best estimate of the value of each of our individual investments in portfolio companies. There is typically no public market for the securities of small, privately-held companies. Our board of directors may also consult with accounting firms, investment banks and other consulting firms when needed, to assist in valuation of our investments. Portfolio valuation, however, is inherently subjective. The net asset value set by our board of directors may not reflect the price at which you could sell our shares in the open market.

BOTH THE FUND AND OUR INVESTMENT ADVISER WERE ONLY RECENTLY FORMED AND HAVE NO PRIOR OPERATING HISTORY. THUS, OUR SUCCESS WILL DEPEND, TO A LARGE DEGREE, ON THE EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE OF THE MEMBERS OF DRAPER ADVISERS.

Although the members of Draper Advisers have considerable experience in making venture capital investments, both the fund and meVC Advisers were only recently formed and have no operating history. Our success is, to a large degree, dependent upon the expertise and experience of the members of Draper Advisers and its ability to attract and retain quality personnel.

A CHANGE IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH DRAPER ADVISERS COULD HAVE AN ADVERSE EFFECT ON OUR ABILITY TO ACHIEVE OUR INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE.

Achieving our investment objective depends in large part on our ability to leverage the experience, contacts and specialized knowledge in venture capital investing of the members of Draper Advisers. The sub-advisory agreement may be terminated by the fund, meVC Advisers or Draper Advisers by delivering written notice of termination at least 60 days prior to the effective date of termination. In the event the sub-advisory agreement is terminated, our success will depend in large part on our ability to obtain investment advisory services similar to those offered by Draper Advisers. We may experience difficulty in obtaining comparable services. If we are unable to obtain these services, or we are only able to do so on less favorable terms than those offered by Draper Advisers, it will have a significant negative impact on our investment returns.

CHANGES IN THE COMPOSITION OF DRAPER ADVISERS MAY HAVE AN ADVERSE EFFECT ON OUR ABILITY TO ACHIEVE OUR INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE.

Achieving our investment objective depends in large part on our ability to leverage the experience, contacts and specialized knowledge in venture capital investing of the members of Draper Advisers. Over the life of the fund, membership in Draper Advisers may change, having an adverse effect on our ability to achieve our investment objective.

OUR ABILITY TO ACHIEVE OUR INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE DEPENDS UPON OUR ABILITY TO CO-INVEST IN PORTFOLIO COMPANIES WITH OTHER FUNDS MANAGED BY THE MEMBERS OF DRAPER ADVISERS.

Our success depends, in large part, on our ability to leverage the experience, contacts and specialized knowledge of the venture capital fund managers employed by Draper Advisers. We expect that most, if not all, of our investments will be made in portfolio companies in which an affiliate of Draper Advisers has already invested or in portfolio companies in which we will co-invest with an affiliate of Draper Advisers. Draper Advisers is under no contractual obligation, however, to refer investments to us or to coinvest with us. Moreover, the Investment Company Act limits our ability to perform transactions with affiliated parties. We intend to apply to the SEC for exemptive relief that will allow us to make co-investments with affiliated parties. Although the SEC has routinely granted similar relief in the past, we cannot be certain that our specific request will be granted. Even if we are granted the requested relief, it will likely be subject to conditions. Specifically, we expect that prior to investing with an affiliated party, meVC Advisers will be required to present the investment opportunity to our board of directors for its review and, furthermore, that at least a majority of our independent directors must conclude that:

- The terms of the proposed transaction are reasonable and fair to us and our stockholders,

12

- The transaction is consistent with the interests of our stockholders and with our investment objective and policies,

- We will not be disadvantaged by making, maintaining or disposing of the investment, and

- The terms of our participation in the investment are at least as good as the terms given to our affiliated entity.

Our board of directors has adopted these policies for the review of all affiliated investments.

OUR RETURNS MAY BE SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER THAN THOSE EXPERIENCED BY OTHER FUNDS MANAGED BY MEMBERS OF DRAPER ADVISERS.

The Fund will pursue an investment strategy similar to the strategy employed by other funds managed by members of Draper Advisers. However, there can be no assurance that we will experience investment returns or operating results that are comparable to the returns and results achieved by these other funds. Our returns and results could be substantially lower.

THE MARKET FOR VENTURE CAPITAL INVESTMENTS IS HIGHLY COMPETITIVE. IN SOME CASES, OUR STATUS AS A REGULATED INVESTMENT COMPANY MAY HINDER OUR ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES.

We will likely face substantial competition in our investing activities from private venture capital funds, investment affiliates of large industrial and financial companies, small business investment companies, wealthy individuals and foreign investors. As a regulated investment company, we are required to disclose quarterly the name and business description of portfolio companies and value of any portfolio securities. Many of our competitors are not subject to this disclosure requirement. Our obligation to disclose this information could hinder our ability to invest in a given portfolio company. Additionally, other regulations, current and future, may make us less attractive investors to a given portfolio company than a private venture capital fund not subject to the same regulations.

THE VENTURE CAPITAL BUSINESS IS GROWING, AND WITH MORE CAPITAL READILY AVAILABLE, OUR SUCCESS WILL BE LARGELY DEPENDENT ON A CONTINUING SUPPLY OF FAVORABLE INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES.

There has been a significant amount of new capital invested in venture capital funds in recent years and this trend is likely to continue. With the amount of capital available, some companies that may have had difficulty in obtaining funding in the past may be able to do so, notwithstanding that the chances for success in these investments may be marginal. In addition, there is likely to be an increasing amount of competition among venture capital funds for the best investment prospects, particularly in the Internet and information technology sectors. Thus, our success will be largely dependent on our ability to find the most favorable opportunities in a highly competitive venture capital market, while avoiding the marginal prospects.

OUR SUCCESS WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECTED BY THE STATE OF THE SECURITIES MARKETS IN GENERAL, AND MORE SPECIFICALLY BY THE MARKET FOR INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERINGS.

We anticipate that a substantial portion of our returns will be realized through initial public offerings of our portfolio companies. The market for initial public offerings is cyclical in nature. Thus, we cannot be certain that the securities markets will be receptive to initial public offerings, particularly those of early-stage companies. Any adverse change in the market for public offerings could significantly impact our ability to realize our investment objective. Our ability to achieve attractive investment returns will also depend upon the availability of strategic or financial acquirers for our portfolio companies. The interest of potential buyers in acquiring our portfolio companies will vary with general economic conditions and the valuations that they are willing to place on our portfolio companies will vary with the valuations of comparable publicly-traded companies.

IF WE ARE UNABLE TO COMPLY WITH SUBCHAPTER M OF THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE IN ANY GIVEN YEAR, WE WILL LOSE PASS-THROUGH TAX TREATMENT FOR THAT YEAR, WHICH COULD SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF INCOME AVAILABLE FOR DISTRIBUTION TO OUR STOCKHOLDERS.

13

We intend to elect to be treated as a regulated investment company under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code. To qualify for Subchapter M status, we must meet income distribution and diversification requirements. In each year in which we are able to meet the requirements of Subchapter M, we will generally not be subject to federal taxation on net investment income and net capital gains that we distribute to our stockholders. If we are not able to meet the requirements of Subchapter M in any given year, however, our income would be fully taxable at the federal level, which could result in a substantial reduction in income available for distribution to our stockholders.

IF YOU ARE AN ERISA PLAN OR AN IRA, YOU MUST DETERMINE THAT THE INVESTMENT IN SHARES OF OUR COMMON STOCK IS PRUDENT AND MEETS YOUR INVESTMENT GUIDELINES. WE CAN MAKE NO GUARANTEE THAT OUR ASSETS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED "PLAN ASSETS" OF YOUR PLAN OR IRA.

If you are an employee benefit plan subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, ERISA, the fiduciary acting on your behalf when investing in shares of our common stock should satisfy itself that an investment in the shares is consistent with the prudence standards of Section 404 of ERISA and is prudent in light of your cash needs and other ERISA requirements. If you are an ERISA plan or an individual retirement account, IRA, you should assure yourself that the investment is not a prohibited transaction under Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Internal Revenue Code. The Department of Labor has issued regulations that characterize the assets of some entities as "plan assets" of the ERISA plans and IRAs that invest in those entities. We anticipate that our shares will be considered "publicly offered securities" within the meaning of the regulations, and our assets would not be considered plan assets. However, we strongly urge you or your fiduciaries to consult your own advisers prior to purchasing shares of our common stock. Our certificate of incorporation and bylaws contain provisions that may deter hostile takeovers.

OUR CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION PROVIDES FOR OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO BE DIVIDED INTO THREE CLASSES OF DIRECTORS SERVING STAGGERED THREE-YEAR TERMS.

Other provisions in our certificate may limit the ability of our stockholders to remove a director from office and to convert from a closed-end investment company to an open-end investment company. Finally, our bylaws limit the ability of our stockholders to call a special meeting of stockholders. These provisions may serve to deter a hostile takeover which could deprive you of opportunities to sell your shares at a premium over prevailing market prices.

USE OF PROCEEDS

We expect the net proceeds to us from the sale of shares of our common stock in this offering to be approximately $ . We have not allocated any portion of the net proceeds to any particular investment. We intend to use substantially all of the net proceeds for investment in accordance with our investment objective. Our investment objective is long-term capital appreciation from venture capital investments in information technology companies, primarily in the Internet, e-commerce, telecommunications, networking, software, and intranet infrastructure industries. Until we have identified appropriate investments in accordance with our investment objective, we may invest all of our excess cash in short-term, interest-bearing investment-grade securities or guaranteed obligations of the U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements, or deposit such amounts in federally-insured bank or in money market accounts.

We may also invest up to 10% of our net assets in an index of publicly-traded information technology companies seeking to enhance the yield on our longer-term reserves for follow-on investments in portfolio companies.

We will invest at least 50% of our total assets in accordance with our investment objective within two years after the completion of this offering. This lengthy period is due to the rigorous review process that Draper Advisers will undertake in an effort to select the best possible portfolio companies for investment. The investment review process will typically include:

- Management interviews

- Reference checks

- Company and industry assessment

- Market analysis

- Competitive analysis

- Risk analysis

- Scenario modeling

We anticipate that we will only invest in a small percentage of companies and business plans that Draper Advisers evaluate.

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE AND PRINCIPAL STRATEGIES
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE

Our investment objective is long-term capital appreciation from venture capital investments in information technology companies, primarily in the Internet, e-commerce, telecommunications, networking, software, and intranet infrastructure industries. We will invest only in companies that we believe will experience high growth over the long term. After carefully selecting our portfolio companies, we will seek to enhance their competitiveness by providing them with significant managerial assistance in strategy formulation, recruiting, and general business operations. We will seek to provide returns to our stockholders through long-term appreciation in the value of our portfolio companies and through distributions of capital gains on our investments. In addition, if a portfolio company is sold, merged or goes public, we may distribute cash or stock in either the portfolio company or the acquiring company.

PRINCIPAL STRATEGIES

We plan to use the following principal strategies to accomplish our investment objective:

FOCUS ON YOUNG COMPANIES

- Focus our investments on young companies that have not yet sold shares in an initial public offering and, in our opinion, exhibit the greatest potential for high long-term growth.

EMPHASIZE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY BUSINESSES

- Focus our investments on companies operating in the information technology markets, primarily the Internet, e-commerce, telecommunications, networking, software, and intranet infrastructure industries, which we believe have significant potential for continued high growth.

- Direct our investments to companies in new markets and to companies in existing markets with new technologies that we believe have the greatest possibility of success in the marketplace.

EXERCISE INVESTMENT DISCIPLINE

- Spread our risk by investing in many companies located throughout the country and in many different sectors of information technology.

- Provide additional funding to our best-performing portfolio companies and, conversely, decline follow-on investments in portfolio companies that have not performed according to our expectations.

LEVERAGE NATIONAL VENTURE CAPITAL PRESENCE OF DRAPER FISHER JURVETSON

- Build on the expertise, contacts and deal flow of Draper Fisher Jurvetson and its growing venture capital affiliate network.

ENHANCE THE COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE OF THE COMPANIES IN WHICH WE INVEST

- Assist our portfolio companies in operations and general business strategy with a goal of positioning them for larger follow-on rounds of financing.

- Help build superior management teams for the companies in which we invest.

17

FOCUS ON YOUNG COMPANIES

We believe that young companies have the greatest potential for growth. We intend to focus our investments in young companies that have not yet sold shares in an initial public offering. We intend to invest relatively small amounts of capital in early financing rounds. We will then work to prepare our portfolio companies for larger follow-on rounds of financing from our fund, affiliated funds, as well as venture capital firms specializing in mid- to late-stagventure capital financing.

EMPHASIZE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY BUSINESSES

We plan to emphasize investments in information technology companies, primarily in the Internet, e-commerce, telecommunications, networking, software, and intranet infrastructure industries. We believe that the information technology sector offers outstanding growth opportunities, and many new markets in which emerging companies can thrive.

Although new areas of investment opportunity will continue to emerge, the following are examples of the areas of investment interest we have today:

- Internet applications and services

- Optoelectronics and fiber optics

- Intranet applications (front office and back office automation)

- Datacommunications, telecommunications and wireless advances

- E-commerce (business-to-business and business-to-commerce)

- Bandwidth improvement software and hardware

- Semiconductors with high intellectual property content

- Groupware applications

- Knowledge management applications

- Electronic design automation advances

- Telephony software applications

- Networking software advances

In addition, we plan to identify and invest in attractive new technology markets as they develop.

EXERCISE INVESTMENT DISCIPLINE

We plan to diversify our investment portfolio in order to increase our chances of investing in companies with high returns, and in an effort to offset the impact of investments in companies that yield losses. We intend to monitor our portfolio companies closely to determine whether or not they continue to be attractive candidates for further investment. We plan to decline additional investments in portfolio companies that do no continue to show promise. We will, however, seek to reinvest in the highest performing portfolio companies, in an effort to reap greater positive returns as a whole, and to protect our investments from dilution.

We believe that risk management is essential to achieving our investment objective. We will manage our risk through extensive portfolio diversification. We intend to invest in at least fifty different companies, although the actual number of companies in which we invest will be a function of total funds available. We

18

anticipate that no more than 5% of our assets, based on the cost of our investments, will be committed at any one time to any one company. We also intend to balance our portfolio by industry and geography:

- INDUSTRY. We intend to invest in a number of different sectors of information technology, including Internet, e-commerce, telecommunications, networking, software, and intranet infrastructure.

- GEOGRAPHY. We intend to invest in several regions throughout the country. Our initial focus will be in many areas where high-growth-potential information technology companies are being created, including the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southwest, and Northwest regions of the United States. Many of these regions are not as well served by existing venture capital firms as northern California, and therefore may offer improved opportunities for venture capital investing. We will seek to continue to expand our efforts into promising regions of technological innovation.

LEVERAGE NATIONAL VENTURE CAPITAL PRESENCE

Draper Fisher Jurvetson has established and continues to expand its network of venture capital affiliates located in several metropolitan regions of the United States. We intend to leverage the specialized investment knowledge and local presence of the venture capital affiliate network assembled by Draper Fisher Jurvetson to provide us with investment opportunities and portfolio company oversight. Following is the current list of the name and location of venture capital firms with whom we intend to co-invest, subject to exemptive relief from the SEC:

- Zone Ventures, Los Angeles, CA

- Draper Atlantic, Reston, VA

- Draper Triangle Ventures, Pittsburgh, PA

- Wasatch Venture Fund, Salt Lake City, UT

- Timberline Venture Partners, Vancouver, WA

- Draper Fisher Jurvetson Gotham Ventures, New York City, NY

We intend to utilize the investment expertise, contacts, networks, access to deal flow, and company monitoring and managerial assistance capabilities of Draper Fisher Jurvetson and its venture capital affiliates. We intend to leverage these resources and to co-invest with Draper Fisher Jurvetson and one or more of its venture capital affiliates when such investments are in your best interests.

PROVIDE SIGNIFICANT MANAGERIAL ASSISTANCE TO OUR PORTFOLIO COMPANIES

Through Draper Advisers, we intend to provide significant managerial assistance and guidance to our portfolio companies. Such assistance will include serving on the board of directors of many of the companies in which we invest, as well as providing expertise in developing and implementing business strategy and tactics, selecting and recruiting management personnel, and general business development. We believe that such assistance will enable us to exercise significant influence with respect to such matters as financing, budgeting, marketing, management selection and exit strategy of our portfolio companies. We will also introduce the companies in which we invest to appropriate business partners and sources of capital for larger rounds of follow-on financing.

19

VALUATION OF PORTFOLIO SECURITIES

On a [quarterly] basis, and at such other times as deemed appropriate under the circumstances, our board of directors will prepare a valuation of our assets.

As a general principle, the current fair value of an investment is the amount that we might reasonably expect to receive for the asset if it were currently sold by us. There is a range of values that is reasonable for investments in private companies at any particular time. Generally, our board of directors will initially set the fair value of each of our investments at cost. Upon the occurrence of a significant development or other factor affecting a portfolio company, including results of operations, changes in general market conditions, subsequent financing or the availability of market quotations, our board of directors will determine whether such events provide a basis for valuing such investment at a number other than cost.

We anticipate that many of our investments for which a public market does not exist will be restricted securities under the Securities Act. Whenever possible, Draper Advisers will negotiate for registration rights for us in connection with our investments. The value for investments for which no public market exists cannot be precisely determined. Generally, our board of directors will value such investments on a going concern basis without considering disposition costs.

Our board of directors will value our portfolio investments for which market quotations are readily available and which are freely transferable as follows:
(i) securities traded on a securities exchange or the Nasdaq Market will be valued at the closing price on the day the securities are being valued and
(ii) securities traded in the over-the-counter market will be valued at the average of the closing bid and asked prices for the trading day the securities are being valued. Our board of directors will value those portfolio investments for which market quotations are readily available but are restricted from free trading in the public securities markets, including stock subject to Rule 144 under the Securities Act, by

25

discounting the closing price or the closing bid and asked prices for the last trading day prior to the date of valuation to reflect the illiquidity imposed by the Rule 144 restrictions, but taking into consideration whether we have any contractual registration rights. For this purpose, an investment that is exercisable for or convertible into a security for which market quotations are readily available or otherwise contains the right to acquire such a security will be deemed to be an investment for which market quotations are readily available, but the value of the security will be reduced by any consideration to be paid by us in connection with the exercise or conversion.

With respect to any debt securities in our portfolio with a maturity date within 60 days of the valuation date, our board of directors will value such securities using the amortized cost method. Securities with a maturity date of more than 60 days after the valuation date for which there is a market and which are freely transferable will be valued at the most recent bid price or yield equivalent as obtained from dealers that make markets in such securities. Certificates of deposit held in our portfolio will generally be valued at their face value, plus accrued interest.

The fair value of investments for which no market exists and for which our board of directors has determined that the original cost of the investment is no longer an appropriate valuation will be determined on the basis of procedures established in good faith by our board of directors. Valuations will be based upon such factors as earnings and net worth, the market price of similar securities of comparable companies and an assessment of future financial prospects. In the case of unsuccessful operations, the valuation may be based upon anticipated liquidation proceeds.

Our board of directors may also consider, when available, a follow-on investment in a portfolio company's securities as the basis of valuation. This method of valuing a follow-on investment will be used only with respect to completed transactions or firm offers involving an arms-length negotiation between issuer and investor. Securities with legal, contractual or practical restrictions on transfer may be valued at a discount from their value determined by the foregoing methods to reflect these restrictions.

Our board of directors will review its valuation policies from time to time and make any necessary adjustments. Our board of directors may also hire independent consultants to review our valuation procedures or to conduct an independent valuation.

To determine the net asset value per share of our common stock, the value of our assets, including our portfolio securities, will be determined by our board of directors, our liabilities, if any, will be subtracted, and the difference will be divided by the number of outstanding shares of our common stock on the date of valuation.

The value of our portfolio securities is inherently subjective. Our net asset value, as determined by the board of directors, may also not fully reflect the price at which you could sell your shares in the secondary market, if a secondary market for our shares had developed.

INVESTMENT COMPANY ACT REGULATION

We have elected to be regulated as a business development company under the Investment Company Act. A business development company is defined as a domestic, closed-end company that is operated for the purpose of making specific types of investments and that makes available significant managerial assistance to the companies in which it invests.

As a business development company, we are required to have:

- At least 70% of our investments in eligible assets before investing in non-eligible assets, and

- We must provide or make available significant managerial assistance to our portfolio companies.

ELIGIBLE ASSETS

Eligible assets include:

- Securities of an eligible portfolio company which are purchased from that company in a private transaction. An eligible portfolio company is a company that:

- is organized and has its principal place of business in the United States,

- subject to certain narrowly defined exceptions, is not itself a registered investment company,

- has no class of securities listed on a national securities exchange or on a dealers' margin list,

- is actively controlled by a business development company, either alone or acting as part of a controlling group, and an affiliate of the business development company serves on such company's board of directors, or

- meets certain other criteria as may be established from time to time by the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to its rule-making authority.

- Securities received by the business development company in connection with its ownership of securities of an eligible portfolio company, or

- Cash, cash items, government securities, or high quality debt securities maturing in one year or less from the time of investment.

SIGNIFICANT MANAGERIAL ASSISTANCE

Significant managerial assistance includes:

- Any arrangement in which a business development company offers to provide, and, if accepted, provides, significant guidance and counsel concerning the management, operations, or business objectives and policies of a portfolio company, or

- The exercise by a business development company of a controlling influence over the management or policies of a portfolio company by the business development company acting individually or as part of a group acting together which controls the portfolio company.

Holders of shares of our common stock are entitled to one vote per share on all matters submitted for action by our stockholders. Our stockholders do not have cumulative voting rights with respect to the election of directors and, thus, the holders of a majority of our outstanding shares can, if they choose to do so, elect all of our directors. The holders of shares of our common stock are entitled to receive dividends when, as and if declared by our board of directors out of funds legally available for this purpose.

If we are liquidated, dissolved or wound up, holders of our common stock are entitled to share ratably in all of our remaining assets after payment of any outstanding liabilities and after we have provided any liquidation preference on any other class of our capital stock. Holders of shares of our common stock have no conversion, preemptive or other subscription rights, nor do shares of our common stock carry redemption rights. All of the outstanding shares of our common stock are, and the shares offered in this offering, when issued against payment for them, will be, fully-paid and non-assessable.

CERTAIN ASPECTS OF OUR CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION AND BYLAWS

CLASSIFIED BOARD

Our certificate of incorporation provides for a classified board of directors consisting of three classes of directors, each serving staggered three-year terms. As a result, a portion of our board of directors will be elected each year. Timothy C. Draper and Peter S. Freudenthal have been designated Class I directors whose terms expire at the 2000 annual meeting of stockholders. [Name to come] has been designated as a Class II director whose term expires at the 2001 annual meeting of stockholders. [Name to come] and
[Name to come] have been designated as Class III directors whose terms expire at the 2002 annual meeting of stockholders. This classification of the board of directors may delay or prevent a change in control of our company or in our management.

EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

Executive officers are appointed by the board of directors on an annual basis and serve until their successors have been duly elected and qualified. There are no family relationships among any of our directors, officers or key employees.

BOARD COMMITTEES

Our board of directors has established an audit committee and a compensation committee. The audit committee currently consists of Messrs. and
. The audit committee reviews our internal accounting procedures and consults with and reviews the services provided by our independent accountants. The compensation committee currently consists of Messrs. and . The compensation committee reviews and recommends to the board of directors the compensation and benefits of our employees.

28

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

Since we are newly organized, we have not yet paid compensation to any of our directors or officers.

LIMITATIONS ON DIRECTORS' LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION

Our certificate of incorporation limits the liability of directors to the maximum extent permitted by Delaware law. Delaware law provides that directors of a corporation will not be personally liable for monetary damages for breach of their fiduciary duties as directors, except liability for any of the following:

- any breach of their duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders;

- acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;

- unlawful payments of dividends or unlawful stock repurchases or redemptions; or

- any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.

This limitation of liability does not apply to liabilities arising under the federal securities laws and does not affect the availability of equitable remedies such as injunctive relief or rescission.

Our certificate of incorporation also provides that, to the fullest extent permitted under Delaware law, our directors may participate in other business or investing activities, even if such other activities are in competition with our business. Moreover, in the event any of our directors are involved in any such activities:

- they may, but are not obligated to, offer us the opportunity to participate in such activities;

- the Fund will have no claim on or right to receive any income or profit which such directors may derive from any such activities; and

- such directors will not be liable to the Fund or its stockholders for monetary damages for loss of corporate opportunity or otherwise because of their participation in any such activities.

- Our certificate of incorporation and bylaws provide that we shall indemnify our directors and executive officers and may indemnify our other officers and employees and other agents to the fullest extent permitted by law. We believe that indemnification under our bylaws covers at least negligence and gross negligence on the part of indemnified parties. Our bylaws also permit us to secure insurance on behalf of any officer, director, employee or other agent for any liability arising out of his or her actions in such capacity, regardless of whether our bylaws would permit indemnification.

We have entered into agreements to indemnify our directors and executive officers, in addition to indemnification provided for in our bylaws. These agreements, among other things, provide for indemnification of our directors and executive officers for expenses, judgments, fines and settlement amounts incurred by any such person in any action or proceeding arising out of such person's services as a director or executive officer or at our request. We believe that these provisions and agreements are necessary to attract and retain qualified persons as directors and executive officers.

The limited liability and indemnification provisions in our certificate of incorporation and bylaws may discourage stockholders from bringing a lawsuit against our directors for breach of their fiduciary duty and may reduce the likelihood of derivative litigation against our directors and officers, even though a derivative litigation, if successful, might otherwise benefit us and our stockholders. A stockholder's investment in us may be adversely affected to the extent we pay the costs of settlement or damage awards against our directors or officers under these indemnification provisions.

29

At present, there is no pending litigation or proceeding involving any of our directors, officers or employees in which indemnification is sought, nor are we aware of any threatened litigation that may result in claims for indemnification.

DELAWARE ANTI-TAKEOVER LAW AND CHARTER AND BYLAW PROVISIONS

Provisions of Delaware law and our certificate of incorporation and bylaws could make the following more difficult:

- the acquisition of us by means of a tender offer;

- acquisition of us by means of a proxy contest or otherwise; or

- the removal of our incumbent officers and directors.

These provisions, summarized below, are expected to discourage coercive takeover practices and inadequate takeover bids. These provisions are also designed to encourage persons seeking to acquire control of us to first negotiate with our board. We believe that the benefits of increased protection of our potential ability to negotiate with the proponent of an unfriendly or unsolicited proposal to acquire or restructure us outweigh the disadvantages of discouraging such proposals because negotiation of such proposals could result in an improvement of their terms.

ELECTION AND REMOVAL OF DIRECTORS. Our board of directors is divided into three classes. The directors in each class will serve for a three-year term, one class being elected each year by our stockholders. This system of electing and removing directors may tend to discourage a third party from making a tender offer or otherwise attempting to obtain control of us because it generally makes it more difficult for stockholders to replace a majority of the directors.

STOCKHOLDER MEETINGS. Under our certificate of incorporation, only the board of directors, the Chairman of the Board, Vice Chairman, Chief Executive Officer or President may call special meetings of stockholders.

ADOPTION, AMENDMENT OR REPEAL OF OUR BYLAWS. Our certificate of incorporation provides that any adoption, amendment or repeal of our Bylaws will require the approval of:

- at least 66-2/3% of the total number of our authorized directors, irrespective of any vacancies that may exist on the board of directors at the time; or

- the holders of at least 66-2/3% of the then outstanding shares of our capital stock entitled to vote on the matter.

REMOVAL OF DIRECTORS. Our certificate of incorporation provides that our stockholders may remove one or more of our directors only for cause and only with the affirmative approval of the holders of at least 75% of the then outstanding shares of our capital stock entitled to vote on the matter.

CONVERSION TO OPEN-END INVESTMENT COMPANY. Our certificate of incorporation provides that any proposal to convert us from a closed-end investment company to an open-end investment company will require the affirmative approval of (i) at least 75% of our continuing directors and (ii) the holders of at least 75% of the then outstanding shares of our capital stock entitled to vote on the matter. A continuing director is any director:

- who is not a person or affiliate of a person who enters or proposes to enter into a business combination with us; and

- who has been a director for at least 12 months; or

30

- who is a successor of a continuing director who is not a person or affiliate of a person who enters or proposes to enter into a business combination with us and was appointed to the board of directors by a majority of the continuing directors.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADVANCE NOTIFICATION OF STOCKHOLDER NOMINATIONS AND PROPOSALS. Our bylaws establish advance notice procedures with respect to stockholder proposals and the nomination of candidates for election as directors, other than nominations made by or at the direction of the board of directors.

AMENDMENT OF CHARTER PROVISIONS. The amendment of any of the above provisions would require approval by holders of at least 66-2/3% of the then outstanding shares of our capital stock entitled to vote on the matter.

ANNUAL MEETINGS

We intend to hold annual meetings of our stockholders to elect our directors and take such other action as may be necessary or appropriate if we are required to do so under applicable law or rules of exchanges or other applicable regulatory agencies.

DISTRIBUTIONS

At least one time per year, we will make distributions of cash and securities to you of at least 90% of the net investment income we receive from interest and dividends plus net short-term capital gains. We intend to make the first distribution, which will likely be comprised entirely of investment income from short-term investments in accordance with our investment objective, by December 31, 2000. If we incur indebtedness, however, the Investment Company Act limits our ability to make distributions if at any time our "asset coverage ratio" is below 300%.

If any of our portfolio companies elects to sell its shares in an initial public offering, or if we receive publicly-traded stock from an acquirer of one of our portfolio companies, the board of directors may distribute pro rata our shares or a portion of our shares of that company's capital stock. Any shares we distribute may be subject to certain transfer restrictions, including a lock-up period which may prohibit you from selling the distributed shares for up to six months.

We intend to qualify for the special tax treatment provided under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code. To qualify for such treatment, we must distribute to our stockholders for each taxable year at least 90% of our investment company taxable income (consisting generally of net investment income and net short-term capital gains). These distributions will be taxable to you as ordinary income or capital gains. You may be proportionately liable for taxes on income and gains of the Fund, but, if you are not subject to tax on your income, should not be required to pay tax on amounts distributed to you. We will inform stockholders regularly of the amount and nature of our income and gains. A more detailed discussion of the federal income tax considerations applicable to us and to an investment in shares of our common stock is included in the SAI under the heading "Federal Income Tax Matters."

DIVIDEND REINVESTMENT PLAN

All of our stockholders who hold shares of common stock in their own name will automatically be enrolled in our Dividend Reinvestment Plan, or the Plan. All such stockholders will have their cash dividends and distributions automatically reinvested by , or the Plan Agent, in additional shares of our common stock. Any stockholder may, of course, elect to receive his or her dividends and distributions in cash. For any of our shares that are held by banks, brokers or other entities that hold our shares as nominees for individual stockholders, the Plan Agent will administer the Plan on the basis of the number of shares certified by any nominee as being registered for stockholders that have not elected to receive dividends and distributions in cash. To receive your dividends and distributions in cash, you must notify the Plan Agent, or your broker or other nominee, as the case may be, in writing.

31

The Plan Agent serves as agent for the stockholders in administering the Plan. When we declare a dividend or distribution payable in cash or in additional shares of our common stock, those stockholders participating in the Plan will receive their dividend or distribution in additional shares of our common stock. Such shares will be either newly issued by us or purchased in the open market by the Plan Administrator. If the market value of a share of our common stock on the record date for such dividend or distribution equals or exceeds the net asset value per share on that date, we will issue new shares at the net asset value. If the net asset value exceeds the market price, the Plan Agent will purchase in the open market such number of shares as is necessary to complete the distribution.

The Plan Agent will maintain all stockholder accounts in the Plan and furnish written confirmation of all transactions. Shares of our common stock in the Plan will be held in the name of the stockholder and such stockholder will be considered the beneficial owner of such shares for all purposes.

There is no charge to stockholders for participating in the Plan or for the reinvestment of dividends and distributions. We will not incur brokerage fees with respect to newly issued shares issued in connection with the Plan. Stockholders will, however, be charged a pro rata share of any brokerage fee charged for open market purchases in connection with the Plan.

We may terminate the Plan at any time. We may also amend the Plan upon providing written notice to stockholders participating in the Plan at least thirty days prior to such amendment. You may withdraw from the Plan upon written request to the Plan Agent. You may obtain additional information about the Plan from the Plan Agent.

INVESTMENT POLICIES

Our venture capital investments will typically be negotiated directly with the issuer in private transactions. Our investments in portfolio companies will generally be in the form of preferred stock that is convertible to common stock under certain circumstances, including the sale by the company of shares of its common stock in an initial public offering. Preferred stock offers many advantages over common stock, including:

- In the event the company is liquidated or sold, the holders of preferred stock receive payment prior to and in preference to the holders of common stock.

- Preferred stockholders typically have protective provisions that can have the effect of prohibiting certain transactions, including a sale of the company, unless the holders of a majority of the preferred stock approve such transaction.

- Holders of preferred shares are often granted the right to elect one or more members of the company's board of directors.

We are not limited to investing in preferred stock, however, and retain the right to invest in other assets if such alternative investments are in your best interests. Such other assets might include common stock, debt securities (which may or may not be convertible into equity securities) and warrants or options to purchase equity securities.

TEMPORARY INVESTMENTS

Pending investments in the types of securities described above, we will invest our cash in:

- U. S. Government securities,

- Repurchase agreements with federally-insured banks with a maturity date of seven days or less, the underlying instruments of which are securities issued or guaranteed by the federal government,

- Certificates of deposit in a federally insured bank with a maturity date of one year or less and in a maximum amount equal to the limit on federal deposit insurance,

- Deposit accounts maintained in a federally insured bank subject to withdrawal restrictions of one year or less, up to the limit of federal deposit insurance,

- Certificates of deposit or deposit accounts in federally insured banks in excess of the maximum amount of deposit insurance if the insured bank is deemed to be well-capitalized by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and

- We may also invest up to 10% of our net assets in an index of publicly-traded information technology companies seeking to enhance the yield on our longer-term reserves for follow-on investments in portfolio companies.

FOLLOW-ON INVESTMENTS

After our initial investment, we anticipate that we will often provide additional or follow-on financing to the portfolio companies. Follow-on investments may be made pursuant to rights to acquire additional securities or otherwise increase our ownership position in a successful or promising company. We may choose to provide follow-on investments for a number of other reasons, including providing necessary financing for a company to implement its business plan, or develop a new line of business or product.

2

INDEBTEDNESS

We may use leverage to raise all or a portion of the funds required to make follow-on investments and to meet operating expenses. Such borrowing would normally occur in the later years of our operations when our investment portfolio may have significant value but limited liquidity.

AVERAGE INVESTMENT

Our investment in any one of our portfolio companies will vary depending on the stage of the company's growth, the quality and completeness of its management team, the perceived business opportunity, the size of the investment sought by the issuing company and the expected return from our investment.

MARGIN

We will not:

- Purchase any securities on margin, except for use of short-term credit necessary for the clearance of transactions,

- Engage in short sales of securities, unless assets are sufficiently segregated or we otherwise own the securities, or

- Purchase or sell commodities or commodity contracts, other than financial futures contracts, except as permitted by the Investment Company Act or in accordance with the terms of exemptive relief granted by the SEC.

- Reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenditures relating to attendance at meetings of the full board of directors or a committee of the board of directors and for other expenses.

meVC Advisers will bear all fees and expenses associated with our independent directors.

Pursuant to the investment advisory agreement with meVC Advisers, and subject to the supervision and oversight of our board of directors, meVC Advisers will be responsible for our day-to-day operations, administration and regulatory compliance, including the following:

- Setting and maintaining our strategic direction;

- Maintaining our financial records;

- Preparing financial and accounting reports for presentation to our board of directors and stockholders and for filing with governmental agencies;

- Calculating and publishing our net asset value;

- Providing managerial assistance and guidance to the companies in which we invest by serving on the boards of directors, assisting in the selection of management personnel, performing market and product analysis, and the formulating marketing and financing strategies.

Draper Advisers will pay all of its own costs and expenses, including any costs and expenses incurred by it when acting on our behalf for meVC Advisers.

VENTURE CAPITAL OPERATIONS

Our venture capital investment operations will consist of the following basic activities:

INVESTMENT DEVELOPMENT

We expect to receive investment proposals from many sources, including unsolicited proposals from the public, personal contacts of meVC Advisers and Draper Advisers and referrals from banks, lawyers, accountants, other members of the financial community, and executives and management of information technology companies.

INVESTMENT RESEARCH

We intend to thoroughly research and investigate the risks and potential rewards of each investment prior to committing funds. Draper Advisers will evaluate our investment opportunities and assess new markets, the viability of new products and technologies, industry trends, financial requirements, competitive environments and the management team associated with a prospective investment. We may engage outside consultants from time to time to provide us with expertise in specialized areas.

INVESTMENT STRUCTURING

An important factor in successful venture capital investing is structuring of the transaction, including the negotiation of price, type of security, restrictions on use of funds, commitments or rights to provide additional financing, control and involvement in the portfolio company's business, and liquidity. Most of our investments will be made through privately negotiated transactions with the company in which we are investing. Draper Advisers will conduct such negotiations on our behalf with a goal of maximizing our opportunity for long-term capital gains.

INVESTMENT LIQUIDATION AND EXIT

The method and timing of the disposition of our portfolio investments are critical elements in maximizing our return. We expect to liquidate our investments primarily through a sale or merger of a portfolio company or through sales of a portfolio company stock after the portfolio company has sold its stock to the public in an initial public offering. We intend to seek exemptive relief from the SEC to exempt us from certain provisions of the Advisers Act that, if granted, will allow us to distribute to you shares of the capital stock of our portfolio companies that are no longer considered venture capital investments. We intend to thoroughly evaluate our options prior to making a stock distribution.

INVESTMENT COMPANY ACT REGULATION

As described in the prospectus, the Investment Company Act places certain restrictions on the types of assets we may hold to maintain our qualification as a business development company, and requires us to provide or make available significant managerial assistance to the companies in which we invest. In addition, we are prohibited from investing in certain types of companies, including brokerage firms, insurance companies and investment banking firms.

As a business development company, we are permitted, under certain specified conditions, to issue multiple classes of senior debt and a single class of interests senior to the shares of our common stock offered for sale pursuant to the prospectus. We can do so, however, only if our asset coverage, as defined in the Investment Company Act, is at least 200% after the issuance of the debt or the senior interests, and we do not make any distribution to our stockholders or repurchase any shares of our common stock at any time when our asset coverage ratio has fallen below 200%.

As a business development company, we may not alter or change our investment objective and policies in any manner whatsoever without the approval of our stockholders, as well as change our non-diversification status without stockholder approval. We may, in the future, seek to become exempt from regulation by the Investment Company Act.

We are also prohibited under the Investment Company Act from knowingly participating in a joint transaction with an affiliate of any of our directors, meVC Advisers, Draper Advisers or any other entity managed by either of them. We believe it will be beneficial to you if we are allowed to co-invest with meVC Advisers, Draper Advisers, any affiliated entity of either of them and any other entity managed by either of them or their members or principals, provided that such co-investment is consistent with our investment objective. We believe co-investment with such entities will offer us the ability to achieve greater diversification and, together with the affiliated entity or entities with which we co-invest, to exercise greater influence on the companies in which we co-invest.

To allow co-investment with our affiliated entities, we have applied to the SEC for exemptive relief to permit such co-investment on certain specified terms and condition, including the approval of the terms of our investment by at least a majority of our independent directors.

We believe the SEC will grant exemptive relief to allow co-investment with affiliated entities only upon certain conditions, including the following:

- Prior to entering into a co-investment transaction, Draper Advisers will make a written investment presentation to our independent directors outlining the terms of the proposed co-investment; and

- After a thorough review of the terms of the transaction, at least a majority of our independent directors conclude that:

- The terms of the proposed co-investment are reasonable and fair to us and our stockholders and do not involve overreaching on the part of any person concerned,

- The transaction is consistent with our investment objective and policies and the interests of our stockholders,

- The co-investment with an affiliated entity will not disadvantage us in making our investment, in maintaining our investment position, or in disposing of our investment, and

- Our participation is on terms that are the same as those on which our affiliate invests or, if our terms are different than those of our affiliate, that our terms are not less advantageous to us as compared to the terms granted to our affiliate.

7

In addition to the restrictions described above, the following persons are required to obtain the approval of a majority of our independent directors or, in some situations, the SEC before engaging in transactions involving us or the companies in which we invest:

- Any person who owns, controls, or holds the power to vote more than 5% of our outstanding shares of voting stock,

- Each director, executive officer and general partner of any such person, and

- Each person who directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, such person.

POTENTIAL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

OTHER ACTIVITIES OF THE INVESTMENT ADVISERS

We do not anticipate having independent management or employees and will rely upon our directors, meVC Advisers and Draper Advisers for management and administration the fund, as well as the selection of our investments. The directors, officers and members of meVC Advisers and Draper Advisers may have conflicts of interest in allocating their time performing services for us and for other funds in which they are involved. Nevertheless, we believe that both meVC Advisers and Draper Advisers have sufficient personnel to satisfy all of their responsibilities. The members of Draper Advisers have legal and financial obligations with respect to their other funds that are similar to their obligations to us.

TIMING OF DISPOSITION OF FUND INVESTMENTS

meVC Advisers and Draper Advisers each have an interest in our profits and losses. Their interests may, in some cases, be inconsistent with your interests with respect to the timing of disposition of our investments in portfolio companies. Our directors will, however, exercise supervisory and oversight authority over their actions. Our directors have a fiduciary duty imposed by applicable law to act in our best interests.

LEGAL AND ACCOUNTING REPRESENTATION

Our legal counsel and independent accountants will likely be the same as those providing services to meVC Advisers. If a conflict in representation arises and cannot be resolved, or if the consent of the respective parties cannot be obtained to the continuance of such dual representation after full disclosure of such conflict, such professionals will withdraw from the representation of one or both of the parties with conflicting interests with respect to the matter involved. Our legal counsel and independent accountants have not acted and will not act on the behalf of any purchaser of shares of our common stock in connection with this offering. Each prospective purchaser of our shares should consult with its own counsel prior to purchasing our shares.

CONFLICTS WITH PORTFOLIO COMPANIES

The interests of a company in which we invest may, from time to time, conflict with your best interests. If meVC Advisers or Draper Advisers becomes actively involved in the management of any of our portfolio companies, they will resolve such conflicts of interest in what they consider to be your best interests.

FEDERAL INCOME TAX MATTERS

Prospective stockholders should consult their own tax advisers with respect to the tax considerations applicable to their purchase of the Common Stock. This discussion does not address all aspects of federal income taxation relevant to holders of our Common Stock in light of their personal circumstances, or to certain types of holders subject to special treatment under federal income tax laws, including foreign taxpayers. This discussion does not address any aspects of foreign, state or local tax laws.

We intend to qualify for treatment as a "regulated investment company" under Subchapter M of the Code. To qualify for such treatment, we must distribute to our stockholders for each taxable year at least 90% of our investment company taxable income (consisting generally of net investment income from interest and dividends and net short term capital gains). We must also meet several additional requirements, including:

- At least 90% of our gross income for each taxable year must be from dividends, interest, payments with respect to secured loans, and gains from sales or other disposition of securities, or other income derived with respect to our business of investing in securities,

- As of the close of each quarter of our taxable year:

- at least 50% of the value of our assets must consist of cash, cash items, government securities, the securities of other regulated investment companies and other securities if such other securities of any one issuer do not represent more than 5% of our total assets,

- no more than 25% of the value of our total assets may be invested in the securities of one issuer (other than U.S. government securities or the securities of other regulated investment companies), or of two or more issuers that are controlled by us and are engaged in the same or similar or related trades or businesses, and

- we must distribute at least 90% of our investment company taxable income each taxable year.

If we were unable to qualify for treatment as a regulated investment company, we would be subject to tax on our ordinary income and capital gains (including gains realized on the distribution of appreciated property) at regular corporate rates. We would not be able to deduct distributions to stockholders, nor would they be required to be made. Distributions would be taxable to the stockholders as ordinary dividend income to the extent of our current and accumulated earnings and profits. Subject to certain limitations under the Code, corporate distributees would be eligible for the dividends received deduction. Distributions in excess of current and accumulated earnings and profits would be treated first as a return of capital to the extent of the stockholder's tax basis, and any remaining distributions would be treated as a gain realized from the sale or exchange of property.

If we qualify as a regulated investment company and distribute to stockholders each year in a timely manner at least 90% of our "investment company taxable income" as defined in the Code, we will not be subject to federal income tax on the portion of our taxable income and gains we distribute to stockholders. In addition, if we distribute in a timely manner the sum of
(i) 98% of our ordinary income for each calendar year, (ii) 98% of our capital gain net income for the one-year period ending October 31 in that calendar year and (iii) any income not distributed in prior years, we will not be subject to the 4% nondeductible federal excise tax on certain undistributed income of regulated investment companies. We will be subject to regular corporate income tax (currently at rates up to 35%) on any undistributed net investment income and any undistributed net capital gain. We will also be subject to alternative minimum tax, but any tax preference items would be apportioned between us and our stockholders in the same proportion that dividends (other than capital gain dividends) paid to each stockholder bear to our taxable income determined without regard to the dividends paid deduction.

9

However, the diversification requirements outlined above are liberalized in the case of certain investment companies. In particular, if we, as a Business Development Company, meet certain requirements described below, the 50% diversification requirement is modified so that we may include in our 50% pool of investments, the value of the securities of any corporate issuer (even if we hold more than 10% of the corporate issuer's voting securities) so long as at the time of the latest investment in the applicable corporate issuer's securities the tax basis which we have in all securities issued by the corporate issuer does not exceed 5% of the total value of all of our assets. This exception does not apply if we have continuously held any securities of the applicable corporate issuer for a period of 10 years.

In order for the modified diversification rule to apply, the SEC must determine and certify to the Internal Revenue Service, or the IRS, no more than 60 days prior to the close of a tax year that the we are principally engaged in furnishing capital to corporations which corporations are themselves principally engaged in the development or exploitation of inventions, technological improvements, new processes, or products not previously available. For purposes of these determinations, a corporation shall be considered principally engaged in the development or exploitation of inventions, technological improvements, new processes, or products not previously available for at least 10 years after the first acquisition of any security in such corporation by us if, at the date of the original acquisition, the issuer corporation was principally so engaged. In addition, we shall be considered at any date to be furnishing capital to any corporation whose securities we hold, if within 10 years before such date, we have acquired securities in the applicable corporate issuer.

The modified diversification rule does not apply to any quarter if, at the close of such quarter, more than 25% of our total assets are comprised of securities of corporate issuers, with respect to each of which (i) we hold more than 10% of the outstanding voting securities of such issuer and (ii) we have continuously held such securities for more than 10 years.

If we acquire debt obligations that were originally issued at a discount, or that bear interest at rates that are not fixed (or certain "qualified variable rates") or that is not payable, or payable at regular intervals over the life of the obligation, we will be required to include in taxable income each year a portion of the "original issue discount" that accrues over the life of the obligation, regardless of whether the income is received by us, and may be required to make distributions in order to continue to qualify as a regulated investment company or to avoid the 4% excise tax on certain undistributed income. In this event, we may be required to sell temporary investments or other assets to meet the distribution requirements.

For any period during which we qualify as a regulated investment company for federal income tax purposes, distributions to stockholders attributable to our ordinary income (including dividends, interest and original issue discount) and net short-term capital gains generally will be taxable as ordinary income to stockholders to the extent of our current or accumulated earnings and profits. Distributions in excess of our earnings and profits will first be treated as a return of capital which reduces the stockholder's adjusted basis in his or her shares of common stock and then as gain from the sale of shares of our common stock. Distributions of our net long-term capital gains (designated by us as capital gain dividends) will be taxable to stockholders as long-term capital gains regardless of the stockholder's holding period in his or her common stock. Corporate stockholders are generally eligible for the 70% dividends received deduction with respect to ordinary income (but not capital gain) dividends to the extent such amount designated by us does not exceed the dividends received by us from domestic corporations. Any dividend declared by us in October, November or December of any calendar year, payable to stockholders of record on a specified date in such a month and actually paid during January of the following year, will be treated as if it were paid by us and received by the stockholders on December 31 of the previous year. In addition, we may elect to relate a dividend back to the prior taxable year if we (i) declare such dividend prior to the due date for filing our return for that taxable year, (ii) make the election in that return, and (iii) distribute the amount in the 12-month period following the close of the taxable year but not later than the first regular dividend payment following the declaration. Any such election will not alter the general rule that a stockholder will

10

be treated as receiving a dividend in the taxable year in which the distribution is made (subject to the October, November, December rule described above).

To the extent that we retain any capital gains, we may designate them as "deemed distributions" and pay a tax thereon for the benefit of our stockholders. In that event, the stockholders report their share of retained realized capital gains on their individual tax returns as if the share had been received, and report a credit for the tax paid thereon by us. The amount of the deemed distribution net of such tax is then added to the stockholder's cost basis for his or her common stock. Since we expect to pay tax on capital gains at regular corporate tax rates and the rate payable by individuals on such gains can currently be as low as 20%, the amount of credit that individual stockholders may report is expected to exceed the amount of tax that they would be required to pay on capital gains. Stockholders who are not subject to federal income tax or tax on capital gains should be able to file a return on the appropriate form or a claim for refund that allows them to recover the taxes paid on their behalf.

Section 1202 of the Code permits the exclusion, for federal income tax purposes, of 50% of any gain (subject to certain limitations) realized upon the sale or exchange of "qualified small business stock" held for more than five years. Generally, qualified small business stock is stock of a small business corporation acquired directly from the issuing corporation, which must (i) at the time of issuance and immediately thereafter have assets of not more than $50 million and (ii) throughout substantially all of the holder's holding period for the stock be actively engaged in the conduct of a trade or business not excluded by law. If we acquire qualified small business stock, hold such stock for five years and dispose of such stock at a profit, a stockholder who held shares of our Common Stock at the time we purchased the qualified small business stock and at all times thereafter until we disposed of the stock would be entitled to exclude from such stockholder's taxable income 50% of such stockholder's share of such gain. 42% (28% for stock the holding period for which begins after December 31, 2000) of any amount so excluded would be treated as a preference item for alternative minimum tax purposes. Comparable rules apply under the qualified small business stock "rollover" provisions of section 1045 of the Code, under which gain otherwise reportable by individuals with respect to sales by us of qualified small business stock held for more than six months can be deferred if we reinvest the sales proceeds within 60 days in other qualified small business stock.

A stockholder may recognize taxable gain or loss if the stockholder sells or exchanges such stockholder's shares of Common Stock. Any gain arising from the sale or exchange of Common Stock generally will be treated as capital gain or loss if the Common Stock is held as a capital asset, and will be treated as long-term capital gain or loss if the stockholder has held his or her shares of Common Stock for more than one year. However any capital loss arising from a sale or exchange of shares of Common Stock held for six months or less will be treated as a long-term capital loss to the extent of the amount of capital gain dividends (or undistributed capital gain) received with respect to such shares of Common Stock.

We may be required to withhold U.S. federal income tax at the rate of 31% of all taxable distributions payable to stockholders who fail to provide us with their correct taxpayer identification number or a certificate that the stockholder is exempt from backup withholding, or if the IRS notifies us that the stockholder is subject to backup withholding. Any amounts withheld may be credited against a stockholder's U.S. federal income tax liability.

Federal withholding taxes at a 30% rate (or a lesser treaty rate) may apply to distributions to stockholders that are nonresident aliens or foreign partnerships, trusts or corporations. Foreign stockholders should consult their tax advisers with respect to the possible U.S. federal, state and local and foreign tax consequences of an investment in us.

We will mail to each stockholder, as promptly as possible after the end of each fiscal year, a notice detailing, on a per distribution basis, the amounts includible in such stockholder's taxable income for such year as net investment income, as net realized capital gains (if applicable) and as "deemed" distributions of capital gains, including taxes paid by us with respect thereto. In addition, the federal tax status of each year's distributions will be reported to the IRS. Distributions may also be subject to additional state, local

11

and foreign taxes depending on each stockholder's particular situation. Stockholders should consult their own tax advisers with respect to the particular tax consequences to them of an investment in us.

Under our Dividend Reinvestment Plan, all cash distributions to stockholders will be automatically reinvested in additional whole and fractional shares of our common stock unless you elect to receive cash. For federal income tax purposes, however, you will be deemed to have constructively received cash and such amounts should be included in your income to the extent such constructive distribution otherwise represents a taxable dividend for the year in which such distribution is credited to your account. The amount of the distribution is the value of the shares of Common Stock acquired through the Plan.

ERISA MATTERS

The provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, are complex. Consequently, if you are subject to ERISA, you should consult with your own financial and legal Advisers prior to investing in our shares of common stock.

A fiduciary of a pension, profit-sharing or other employee benefit plan which is subject to ERISA, and those purchasing our shares on behalf of an Individual Retirement Account, may wish to consider the requirements of ERISA and/or the Internal Revenue Code, as applicable, in the context of your particular circumstances before purchasing our shares of common stock. Among other factors, you may wish to consider:

- Whether an investment in our shares satisfies the prudence requirements of
Section 404(a)(1)(B) of ERISA;

- Whether an investment in our shares satisfies the diversification requirements of Section 404(a)(1)(C) of ERISA;

- Whether an investment in our shares is in accordance with your governing documents as required by Section 404(a)(1)(D) of ERISA;

- Whether an investment in our shares will trigger a prohibited transaction in violation of Section 406 of ERISA or Section 408(e)(2) or 4975 of the Internal Revenue Code; and

- To what extent the definition of "plan assets" under ERISA and Department of Labor regulations may affect an investment in our shares.

Neither ERISA nor the Internal Revenue Code defines "plan assets." However, Department of Labor regulations, the assets of certain pooled investment vehicles, including certain partnerships, may be treated as "plan assets." If our assets are deemed to be "plan assets" of an employee plan or an IRA that purchases our shares of common stock:

- The prudence standards and other ERISA provisions will be deemed applicable to our investments in portfolio companies;

- Those who have investment discretion over your assets will be liable under ERISA for our investments in portfolio companies that do not conform to the ERISA standards; and

- Certain transactions that we may enter into in the future in the ordinary course of our business might constitute prohibited transactions under ERISA and/or the Internal Revenue Code. A prohibited transaction, in addition to imposing potential personal liability upon fiduciaries of plans subject to ERISA and IRA's, may also result in the imposition of an excise tax under the Internal Revenue Code upon the disqualified person participating in the prohibited transaction. Such an event could also result in disqualification of the IRA.

Our assets would not be considered "plan assets" under ERISA and Department of Labor regulations as long as our shares of common stock are "publicly-offered securities". Under the regulations, a share will be considered a "publicly-offered security" if it is widely held, freely transferable, and sold to an ERISA

12

plan or IRA pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, provided that our shares are registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 within a specified time period. Whether a security is considered "freely transferable" depends on the facts and circumstances of each case. Generally, if the security is part of an offering in which the minimum investment is $10,000 or less, certain restrictions, by themselves, will not prevent the security from being considered freely transferable. The minimum investment permitted in our shares is $5,000 and we have imposed no restrictions on transfer or assignment of the shares, other than the limitations set forth under "Suitability requirements". A class of securities is considered "widely-held" if, immediately after the initial offering, it is owned by 100 or more investors independent of the issuer and of one another.

We believe that our shares of common stock will be considered "publicly-offered securities" and that our assets will not be considered "plans assets" of the ERISA plans and IRAs that buy our shares.

Reference is made to the provisions of Article of Registrant's Certificate of incorporation, Section of Registrant's Bylaws and the form of Indemnification Agreement for directors and officers of the Registrant, each of which is filed as an exhibit to this Registration Statement.

ARTICLE XIII

A. RIGHT TO INDEMNIFICATION. Each person who was or is made a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is otherwise involved in any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (hereinafter a "proceeding"), by reason of the fact that he or she is or was a director, officer of the corporation or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or of a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, including service with respect to an employee benefit plan (hereinafter an "indemnitee"), whether the basis of such proceeding is alleged action in an official capacity as a director, officer, employee or agent or in any other capacity while serving as a director, officer, employee or agent, shall be indemnified and held harmless by the corporation to the fullest extent authorized by the Delaware General Corporation Law, as the same exists or may hereafter be amended (but, in the case of any such amendment, only to the extent that such amendment permits the corporation to provide broader indemnification rights than permitted prior

-4-

thereto), against all expense, liability and loss (including attorneys' fees, judgments, fines, ERISA excise taxes or penalties and amounts paid in settlement) reasonably incurred or suffered by such indemnitee in connection therewith and such indemnification shall continue as to an indemnitee who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of the indemnitee's heirs, executors and administrators; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, except as provided in paragraph (c) hereof with respect to proceedings to enforce rights to indemnification, the corporation shall indemnify any such indemnitee in connection with a proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by such indemnitee only if such proceeding (or part thereof) was authorized by the board of directors of the corporation.

B. RIGHT TO ADVANCEMENT OF EXPENSES. The right to indemnification conferred in Section A of this Article XIII shall include the right to be paid by the corporation the expenses incurred in defending any proceeding for which such right to indemnification is applicable in advance of its final disposition (hereinafter an "advancement of expenses"); PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if the Delaware General Corporation Law requires, an advancement of expenses incurred by an indemnitee in his or her capacity as a director or officer (and not in any other capacity in which service was or is rendered by such indemnitee, including, without limitation, service to an employee benefit plan) shall be made only upon delivery to the corporation of an undertaking (hereinafter an "undertaking"), by or on behalf of such indemnitee, to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined by final judicial decision from which there is no further right to appeal (hereinafter a "final adjudication") that such indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified for such expenses under this Article XIII or otherwise.

C. RIGHT OF INDEMNITEE TO BRING SUIT. The rights to indemnification and to the advancement of expenses conferred in Sections A and B of this Article XIII shall be contract rights. If a claim under Sections A or B of this Article XIII is not paid in full by the corporation within sixty (60) days after a written claim has been received by the corporation, except in the case of a claim for an advancement of expenses, in which case the applicable period shall be twenty (20) days, the indemnitee may at any time thereafter bring suit against the corporation to recover the unpaid amount of the claim. If successful in whole or in part in any such suit, or in a suit brought by the Corporation to recover an advancement of expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking, the indemnitee shall be entitled to be paid also the expense of prosecuting or defending such suit. In (i) any suit brought by the indemnitee to enforce a right to indemnification hereunder (but not in a suit brought by the indemnitee to enforce a right to an advancement of expenses) it shall be a defense that, and (ii) in any suit by the corporation to recover an advancement of expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking the corporation shall be entitled to recover such expenses upon a final adjudication that, the indemnitee has not met any applicable standard for indemnification set forth in the Delaware General Corporation Law. Neither the failure of the corporation (including its board of directors, independent legal counsel, or its stockholders) to have made a determination prior to the commencement of such suit that indemnification of the indemnitee is proper in the circumstances because the indemnitee has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in the Delaware General Corporation Law, nor an actual determination by the corporation (including its board of directors, independent legal counsel, or its stockholders) that the indemnitee has not met such applicable standard of conduct, shall create a presumption that the indemnitee has not met the applicable standard of conduct or, in the case of such a suit brought by the indemnitee, be a defense to such suit. In any suit brought by the indemnitee to enforce a right to indemnification or to an advancement of expenses hereunder, or by the corporation to recover an advancement of expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking, the burden of proving that the indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified, or to such advancement of expenses, under this Article XIII or otherwise shall be on the corporation.

D. NON-EXCLUSIVITY OF RIGHTS. The rights to indemnification and to the advancement of expenses conferred in this Article XIII shall not be exclusive of any other right which any person may have or hereafter acquire under any statute, this Certificate of Incorporation or the corporation's Bylaws, or any agreement vote of stockholders or disinterested directors or otherwise.

-5-

E. INSURANCE. The corporation may maintain insurance, at its expense, to protect itself and any director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation or another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against any expense, liability or loss, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such expense, liability or loss under the Delaware General Corporation Law.

F. INDEMNIFICATION OF EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS OF THE CORPORATION. The corporation may, to the extent authorized from time to time by the board of directors, grant rights to indemnification, and to the advancement of expenses to any employee or agent of the corporation to the fullest extent of the provisions of this Article XIII with respect to the indemnification and advancement of expenses of directors and officers of the corporation

G. REPEAL AND MODIFICATION. Any repeal or modification of the foregoing provisions of this Article XII shall not adversely affect any right or protection of any director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation existing at the time of such repeal or modification.

H. VOTE REQUIRED TO AMEND OR REPEAL. The affirmative vote of the holders of at least sixty-six and two-thirds percent (66-2/3%) of the then outstanding shares of the corporation's capital stock entitled to vote generally in the election of directors shall be required to amend in any respect or repeal this Article XIII.

ARTICLE XIV

The corporation reserves the right to amend or repeal any provision contained in this Certificate of Incorporation, in the manner now or hereafter prescribed by statute, and all rights conferred upon a stockholder herein are granted subject to this reservation.

Annual meetings of stockholders shall be held each year at such date and time as shall be designated from time to time by the board of directors and stated in the notice of the meeting. At such annual meeting, the stockholders shall elect by a plurality vote the number of directors equal to the number of directors of the class whose term expires at such meetings (or, if fewer, the number of directors properly nominated and qualified for election) to hold office until the third succeeding annual meeting of stockholders after their election. The stockholders shall also transact such other business as may properly be brought before the meetings.

To be properly brought before the annual meeting, business must be either (a) specified in the notice of meeting (or any supplement thereto) given by or at the direction of the board of directors or the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Chief Executive Officer or President, (b) otherwise properly brought before the meeting by or at the direction of the board of directors or the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Chief Executive Officer or President, or (c) otherwise properly brought before the meeting by a stockholder of record. In addition to any other applicable requirements, for business to be properly brought before the annual meeting by a stockholder, the stockholder must have given timely notice thereof in writing to the Secretary of the corporation. To be timely, a stockholder's notice must be delivered personally or deposited in the United States mail, or delivered to a common carrier for transmission to the recipient or actually transmitted by the person giving the notice by electronic means to the recipient or sent by other means of written communication, postage or delivery charges prepaid in all such cases, and received at the principal executive

Notwithstanding anything in these Bylaws to the contrary, no business shall be conducted at the annual meeting except in accordance with the procedures set forth in this
Section 2.2; provided, however, that nothing in this Section 2.2 shall be deemed to preclude discussion by any stockholder of any business properly brought before the annual meeting.

The Chairman (or such other person presiding at the meeting in accordance with these Bylaws) shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that business was not properly brought before the meeting in accordance with the provisions of this Section 2.2, and if he should so determine, he shall so declare to the meeting and any such business not properly brought before the meeting shall not be transacted.

2.3 SPECIAL MEETINGS. Special meetings of the stockholders may be called for any purpose or purposes, unless otherwise prescribed by the statute or by the Certificate of Incorporation, only at the request of the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Chief Executive Officer or President or by a resolution duly adopted by a majority of the board of directors.

Such consent or consents shall be delivered to the corporation by hand or certified mail, return receipt requested, to its principal executive office, or to an officer or agent of the corporation having custody of the book in which proceedings of meetings of stockholders are recorded.

2.5 NOTICE OF MEETINGS. Written notice of stockholders' meetings, stating the place, date and time of the meeting and, in the case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which such special meeting is called, shall be given to each stockholder entitled to vote at such meeting not less than ten (10) nor more than sixty (60) days prior to the meeting.

When a meeting is adjourned to another place, date or time, written notice need not be given of the adjourned meeting if the place, date and time thereof are announced at the meeting at which the adjournment is taken; provided, however, that if the date of any adjourned meeting is more than thirty (30) days after the date for which the meeting was originally noticed, or if a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, written notice of the place, date and time of the adjourned meeting shall be given in conformity herewith. At any adjourned meeting, any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the original meeting.

Whenever, under the provisions of Delaware law or of the Certificate of Incorporation or of these Bylaws, notice is required to be given to any stockholder it shall not be construed to mean personal notice, but such notice may be given in writing, by mail, addressed to such director or stockholder, at his or her address as it appears on the records of the corporation, with postage thereon prepaid, and such notice shall be deemed to be given at the time when the same shall be deposited in the United States mail.

Whenever any notice is required to be given under the provisions of Delaware law or of the Certificate of Incorporation or of these Bylaws, a waiver thereof in writing, signed by the person or persons entitled to said notice, whether before or after the time stated therein, shall be deemed equivalent thereto.

2.6 BUSINESS MATTER OF A SPECIAL MEETING. Business transacted at any special meeting of stockholders shall be limited to the purposes stated in the notice, except to the extent such notice is waived or is not required.

Such list shall be open to the examination of any stockholder, for any purpose germane to the meeting, during ordinary business hours, for a period of at least ten (10) days prior to the meeting, at a place within the city where the meeting is to be held, which place, if other than the place of the meeting, shall be specified in the notice of the meeting. The list shall also be produced and kept at the place of the meeting during the whole time thereof, and may be inspected by any stockholder who is present in person thereat.

2.8 ORGANIZATION AND CONDUCT OF BUSINESS.

In the absence of the Secretary of the corporation, the Secretary of the meeting shall be such person as the Chairman appoints.

The Chairman of any meeting of stockholders shall determine the order of business and the procedure at the meeting, including such regulation of the manner of voting and the conduct of discussion as seems to him or her in order.

2.9 QUORUM AND ADJOURNMENTS. Except where otherwise provided by law or the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws, the holders of at least a majority of the stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote, present in person or represented in proxy, shall constitute a quorum at all meetings of the stockholders. The stockholders present at a duly called or held meeting at which a quorum is present may continue to do business until adjournment, notwithstanding the withdrawal of enough stockholders to have less than a quorum if any action taken (other than adjournment) is approved by at least a majority of the shares required to constitute a quorum. At such adjourned meeting at which a quorum is present or represented, any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the meeting as originally notified. If, however, a quorum shall not be present or represented at any meeting of the stockholders, the stockholders entitled to vote thereat who are present in person or represented by proxy shall have the power to adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present or represented.

-3-

2.11 MAJORITY VOTE. When a quorum is present at any meeting, the vote of the holders of a majority of the stock having voting power present in person or represented by proxy shall decide any question brought before such meeting, unless the question is one upon which by express provision of the statutes or of the Certificate of Incorporation or of these Bylaws, a different vote is required in which case such express provision shall govern and control the decision of such question.

2.12 RECORD DATE FOR STOCKHOLDER NOTICE AND VOTING.

(i) For purposes of determining the stockholders entitled to notice of any meeting or to vote, or entitled to receive payment of any dividend or other distribution, or entitled to exercise any right in respect of any change, conversion or exchange of stock or for the purpose of any other lawful action, the board of directors may fix, in advance, a record date, which shall not be more than sixty (60) days nor less than ten (10) days before the date of any such meeting nor more than sixty (60) days before any other action. If the board of directors does not so fix a record date, the record date for determining stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall be at the close of business on the business day next preceding the day on which notice is given or, if notice is waived, at the close of business on the business day next preceding the day on which the meeting is held.

(ii) For purposes of determining the stockholders entitled to consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, the board of directors may fix a record date, which record date shall not precede the date upon which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the board of directors, and which date shall not be more than ten (10) days after the date upon which the resolution fixing such record date is adopted by the board of directors. If no record date has been fixed by the board of directors, the record date for determining stockholders entitled to consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, when no prior action by the board of directors is required under Delaware law, shall be the first date on which a signed written consent setting forth the action taken or proposed to be taken is delivered to the corporation by hand or certified mail, return receipt requested, to its principal executive office, or to an officer or agent of the corporation having custody of the book in which proceedings of meetings of stockholders are recorded. If no record date has been fixed by the board of directors and prior action by the board of directors is required under Delaware law, the record date for determining stockholders entitled to consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting shall be the close of business on the day on which the board of directors adopts the resolution taking such prior action.

2.13 PROXIES. Every person entitled to vote for directors or on any other matter shall have the right to do so either in person or by one or more agents authorized by a written proxy signed by the person and filed with the Secretary of the corporation. A proxy shall be deemed signed if the stockholder's name is placed on the proxy (whether by manual signature, typewriting, telegraphic transmission or otherwise) by the stockholder or the stockholder's attorney-in-fact. A validly executed proxy which does not state that it is irrevocable shall continue in full force and effect unless (i) revoked by the person executing it, before the vote pursuant to that proxy, by a writing delivered to the corporation stating that the proxy is revoked or by a subsequent proxy executed by, or attendance at the meeting and voting in person by, the person executing the proxy; or (ii) written notice of the death or incapacity of the maker of that proxy is received by the corporation before the vote pursuant to that proxy is counted; provided, however, that no proxy shall be valid after the expiration of three years from the date of the proxy, unless otherwise provided in the proxy.

2.14 INSPECTORS OF ELECTION. The corporation shall, in advance of any meeting of stockholders, appoint one or more inspectors of election to act at the meeting and make a written report thereof. The

-4-

corporation may designate one or more persons to act as alternate inspectors to replace any inspector who fails to act. If no inspector or alternate is able to act at a meeting of stockholders, the person presiding at the meeting shall appoint one or more inspectors to act at the meeting. Each inspector, before entering upon the discharge of his or her duties, shall take and sign an oath faithfully to execute the duties of inspector with strict impartiality and according to the best of his or her ability.

1.8 "Proceeding" shall mean any pending, threatened or completed action, hearing, suit or any other proceeding, whether civil, criminal, arbitrative, administrative, investigative or any alternative dispute resolution mechanism, including without limitation any such Proceeding brought by or in the right of the Company.

2. EMPLOYMENT RIGHTS AND DUTIES. Subject to any other obligations imposed on either of the parties by contract or by law, and with the understanding that this Agreement is not intended to confer employment rights on either party which they did not possess on the date of its execution, Indemnitee agrees to serve as a director or officer so long as he is duly appointed or elected and qualified in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation (the "Certificate") and Bylaws (the "Bylaws") of the Company and until such time as he resigns or fails to stand for election or until his employment terminates. Indemnitee may from time to time also perform other services at the request, or for the convenience of, or otherwise benefiting the Company. Indemnitee may at any time and for any reason resign or be removed from such position (subject to any other contractual obligation or

-2-

other obligation imposed by operation of law), in which event the Company shall have no obligation under this Agreement to continue Indemnitee in any such position.

2.1 DIRECTORS' AND OFFICERS' INSURANCE.

(a) The Company hereby covenants and agrees that, so long as Indemnitee shall continue to serve as a director or officer of the Company and thereafter so long as Indemnitee shall be subject to any possible Proceeding, the Company, subject to Section 2.1(c), shall maintain directors' and officers' insurance in full force and effect.

(b) In all policies of directors' and officers' insurance, Indemnitee shall be named as an insured in such a manner as to provide Indemnitee the same rights and benefits, subject to the same limitations, as are accorded to the Company's directors or officers most favorably insured by such policy.

(c) The Company shall have no obligation to maintain directors' and officers' insurance if the Company determines in good faith that such insurance is not reasonably available, the premium costs for such insurance are disproportionate to the amount of coverage provided, or the coverage provided by such insurance is limited by exclusions so as to provide an insufficient benefit.

3. INDEMNIFICATION. The Company shall indemnify Indemnitee to the fullest extent authorized or permitted by Delaware Law and the provisions of the Certificate and Bylaws of the Company, as in effect on the date hereof, and as Delaware Law, the Certificate and Bylaws may from time to time be amended (but, in the case of any such amendment, only to the extent such amendment permits the Company to provide broader indemnification rights than Delaware Law, the Certificate and/or Bylaws permitted the Company to provide before such amendment). The right to indemnification conferred in the Certificate shall be presumed to have been relied upon by Indemnitee in serving or continuing to serve the Company as a director or officer and shall be enforceable as a contract right. Without in any way diminishing the scope of the indemnification provided by the Certificate and this Section 3, the Company shall indemnify Indemnitee if and whenever he is or was a witness, party or is threatened to be made a witness or a party to any Proceeding, by reason of the fact that he is or was an Agent or by reason of anything done or not done, or alleged to have been done or not done, by him in such capacity, against all Expenses and Liabilities actually and reasonably incurred by Indemnitee or on his behalf in connection with the investigation, defense, settlement or appeal of such Proceeding. In addition to, and not as a limitation of, the foregoing, the rights of indemnification of Indemnitee provided under this Agreement shall include those rights set forth in Sections 4, 5 and 6 below.

4. PAYMENT OF EXPENSES.

4.1 All Expenses incurred by or on behalf of Indemnitee shall be advanced by the Company to Indemnitee within 20 days after the receipt by the Company of a written request for such advance which may be made from time to time, whether prior to or after final disposition of a Proceeding (unless there has been a final determination by a court of competent jurisdiction that Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified for such Expenses). Indemnitee's entitlement to advancement of Expenses shall include those incurred in connection with any Proceeding by Indemnitee seeking a determination, an adjudication or an award in arbitration pursuant to this Agreement. The requests shall reasonably evidence the Expenses incurred by Indemnitee in connection therewith. Indemnitee hereby undertakes to repay the amounts advanced if it shall ultimately be determined that Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

-3-

4.2 Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, to the extent that Indemnitee has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any Proceeding, Indemnitee shall be indemnified against all Expenses actually and reasonably incurred by Indemnitee in connection therewith.

5. PROCEDURE FOR DETERMINATION OF ENTITLEMENT TO INDEMNIFICATION.

5.1 Whenever Indemnitee believes that he is entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Agreement, Indemnitee shall submit a written request for indemnification (the "Indemnification Request") to the Company to the attention of the President with a copy to the Secretary. This request shall include documentation or information which is necessary for the determination of entitlement to indemnification and which is reasonably available to Indemnitee. Determination of Indemnitee's entitlement to indemnification shall be made no later than 60 days after receipt of the Indemnification Request. The President or the Secretary shall, promptly upon receipt of Indemnitee's request for indemnification, advise the Board in writing that Indemnitee has made such request for indemnification.

5.2 The Indemnification Request shall set forth Indemnitee's selection of which of the following forums shall determine whether Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification:

(a) A majority vote of the Disinterested Directors, even though less than a quorum, or, if there be no Disinterested Directors or if the Disinterested Directors so direct, a written opinion of an Independent Counsel.

(b) A majority vote of the stockholders at a meeting at which a quorum is present, with the shares owned by the person to be indemnified not being entitled to vote thereon.

(c) The court in which the Proceeding is or was pending upon application by Indemnitee.

The Company agrees to bear any and all costs and expenses incurred by Indemnitee or the Company in connection with the determination of Indemnitee's entitlement to indemnification by any of the above forums.

6. PRESUMPTIONS AND EFFECT OF CERTAIN PROCEEDINGS. No initial finding by the Board, its counsel, Independent Counsel, arbitrators or the stockholders shall be effective to deprive Indemnitee of the protection of this indemnity, nor shall a court or other forum to which Indemnitee may apply for enforcement of this indemnity give any weight to any such adverse finding in deciding any issue before it. Upon making a request for indemnification, Indemnitee shall be presumed to be entitled to indemnification under this Agreement and the Company shall have the burden of proof to overcome that presumption in reaching any contrary determination. The termination of any Proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, arbitration award or conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, shall not, of itself, (a) adversely affect the rights of Indemnitee to indemnification except as indemnification may be expressly prohibited under this Agreement, (b) create a presumption that Indemnitee did not act in good faith and in a manner which he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Company or (c) with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, create a presumption that Indemnitee had reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful.

7. REMEDIES OF INDEMNITEE IN CASES OF DETERMINATION NOT TO INDEMNIFY OR TO ADVANCE EXPENSES.

7.1 In the event that (a) an initial determination is made that Indemnitee is not entitled to indemnification, (b) advances for Expenses are not made when and as required by this Agreement,

-4-

(c) payment has not been timely made following a determination of entitlement to indemnification pursuant to this Agreement or (d) Indemnitee otherwise seeks enforcement of this Agreement, Indemnitee shall be entitled to a final adjudication in an appropriate court of the State of Delaware of his entitlement to such indemnification or advance. Alternatively, Indemnitee at his option may seek an award in arbitration. If the parties are unable to agree on an arbitrator, the parties shall provide to the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") a statement of the nature of the dispute and the desired qualifications of the arbitrator. AAA will provide the parties with a list of three available arbitrators. Each party may strike one of the names on the list, and the remaining person will serve as the arbitrator. If both parties strike the same person, AAA will select the arbitrator from the other two names. The arbitration award shall be made within 90 days following the demand for arbitration. Except as set forth herein, the provisions of Delaware law shall apply to any such arbitration. The Company shall not oppose Indemnitee's right to seek any such adjudication or arbitration award. In any such proceeding or arbitration Indemnitee shall be presumed to be entitled to indemnification under this Agreement and the Company shall have the burden of proof to overcome that presumption.

7.2 An initial determination, in whole or in part, that Indemnitee is not entitled to indemnification shall create no presumption in any judicial proceeding or arbitration that Indemnitee has not met the applicable standard of conduct for, or is otherwise not entitled to, indemnification.

7.3 If an initial determination is made or deemed to have been made pursuant to the terms of this Agreement that Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification, the Company shall be bound by such determination in the absence of (a) a misrepresentation of a material fact by Indemnitee in the request for indemnification or (b) a specific finding (which has become final) by a court of competent jurisdiction that all or any part of such indemnification is expressly prohibited by law.

7.4 The Company and Indemnitee agree herein that a monetary remedy for breach of this Agreement, at some later date, will be inadequate, impracticable and difficult of proof, and further agree that such breach would cause Indemnitee irreparable harm. Accordingly, the Company and Indemnitee agree that Indemnitee shall be entitled to temporary and permanent injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement without the necessity of proving actual damages or irreparable harm. The Company and Indemnitee further agree that Indemnitee shall be entitled to such injunctive relief, including temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions and permanent injunctions, without the necessity of posting bond or other undertaking in connection therewith. Any such requirement of bond or undertaking is hereby waived by the Company, and the Company acknowledges that in the absence of such a waiver, a bond or undertaking may be required by the court.

7.5 The Company shall be precluded from asserting that the procedures and presumptions of this Agreement are not valid, binding and enforceable. The Company shall stipulate in any such court or before any such arbitrator that the Company is bound by all the provisions of this Agreement and is precluded from making any assertion to the contrary.

7.6 Expenses incurred by Indemnitee in connection with his request for indemnification under, seeking enforcement of or to recover damages for breach of this Agreement shall be borne and advanced by the Company.

8. OTHER RIGHTS TO INDEMNIFICATION. Indemnitee's rights of indemnification and advancement of expenses provided by this Agreement shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which Indemnitee may now or in the future be entitled under applicable law, the Certificate, the Bylaws, an employment agreement, a vote of stockholders or Disinterested Directors, insurance or other financial arrangements or otherwise.

-5-

9. LIMITATIONS ON INDEMNIFICATION. No indemnification shall be paid or expenses reimbursed by the Company pursuant to Section 3 in the following circumstances:

9.1 INSURANCE. To the extent that Indemnitee is reimbursed pursuant to such insurance as may exist for Indemnitee's benefit. Notwithstanding the availability of such insurance, Indemnitee also may claim indemnification from the Company pursuant to this Agreement by assigning to the Company any claims under such insurance to the extent Indemnitee is paid by the Company. Indemnitee shall reimburse the Company for any sums he receives as indemnification from other sources to the extent of any amount paid to him for that purpose by the Company;

9.2 SECTION 16(b). On account and to the extent of any wholly or partially successful claim against Indemnitee for an accounting of profits made from the purchase or sale by Indemnitee of securities of the Company pursuant to the provisions of Section 16(b) or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and amendments thereto or similar provisions of any federal, state or local statutory law; or

9.3 INDEMNITEE'S PROCEEDINGS. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, in connection with all or any part of a Proceeding which is initiated or maintained by or on behalf of Indemnitee, or any Proceeding by Indemnitee against the Company or its directors, officers, employees or other agents, unless (a) such indemnification is expressly required to be made by Delaware Law, (b) the Proceeding was authorized by a majority of the Disinterested Directors (c) there has been a Change of Control or (d) such indemnification is provided by the Company, in its sole discretion, pursuant to the powers vested in the Company under Delaware Law.

10. DURATION AND SCOPE OF AGREEMENT; BINDING EFFECT. This Agreement shall continue so long as Indemnitee shall be subject to any possible Proceeding subject to indemnification by reason of the fact that he is or was an Agent and shall be applicable to Proceedings commenced or continued after execution of this Agreement, whether arising from acts or omissions occurring before or after such execution. This Agreement shall be binding upon the Company and its successors and assigns (including any direct or indirect successor by purchase, merger, consolidation or otherwise to all or substantially all of the business or assets of the Company) and shall inure to the benefit of Indemnitee and his spouse, assigns, heirs, devisees, executors, administrators and other legal representatives.

11. NOTICE BY INDEMNITEE AND DEFENSE OF CLAIMS. Indemnitee agrees promptly to notify the Company in writing upon being served with any summons, citation, subpoena, complaint, indictment, information or other document relating to any matter which may be subject to indemnification hereunder, whether civil, criminal, arbitrative, administrative or investigative; but the omission so to notify the Company will not relieve it from any liability which it may have to Indemnitee if such omission does not actually prejudice the Company's rights and, if such omission does prejudice the Company's rights, it will relieve the Company from liability only to the extent of such prejudice; nor will such omission relieve the Company from any liability which it may have to Indemnitee otherwise than under this Agreement. With respect to any Proceeding:

(a) The Company will be entitled to participate therein at its own expense;

(b) Except as otherwise provided below, to the extent that it may wish, the Company jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly notified will be entitled to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to Indemnitee. After notice from the Company to Indemnitee of its election so to assume the defense thereof and the assumption of such defense, the Company will not be liable to Indemnitee under this Agreement for any attorney fees or costs subsequently incurred by Indemnitee in connection with Indemnitee's defense except as

-6-

otherwise provided below. Indemnitee shall have the right to employ his counsel in such Proceeding but the fees and expenses of such counsel incurred after notice from the Company of its assumption of the defense thereof and the assumption of such defense shall be at the expense of Indemnitee unless (i) the employment of counsel by Indemnitee has been authorized by the Company, (ii) Indemnitee shall have reasonably concluded that there may be a conflict of interest between the Company and Indemnitee in the conduct of the defense of such action or that the Company's counsel may not be adequately representing Indemnitee or
(iii) the Company shall not in fact have employed counsel to assume the defense of such action, in each of which cases the fees and expenses of counsel shall be at the expense of the Company; and

(c) The Company shall not be liable to indemnify Indemnitee under this Agreement for any amounts paid in settlement of any action or claim effected without its written consent. The Company shall not settle any action or claim which would impose any limitation or penalty on Indemnitee without Indemnitee's written consent. Neither the Company nor Indemnitee will unreasonably withhold its or his consent to any proposed settlement.

11.1 CONTRIBUTION. In order to provide for just and equitable contribution in circumstances in which the indemnification provided for in this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unavailable to Indemnitee in whole or part, the Company shall, in such an event, after taking into account, among other things, contributions by other directors and officers of the Company pursuant to indemnification agreements or otherwise, and, in the absence of personal enrichment, acts of intentional fraud or dishonesty or criminal conduct on the part of Indemnitee, contribute to the payment of Indemnitee's losses to the extent that, after other contributions are taken into account, such losses exceed: (i) in the case of a director of the Company or any of its subsidiaries who is not an officer of the Company or any of such subsidiaries, the amount of fees paid to the director for serving as a director during the 12 months preceding the commencement of the Proceeding; or (ii) in the case of a director of the Company or any of its subsidiaries who is also an officer of the Company or any of such subsidiaries, the amount set forth in clause (i) plus 5% of the aggregate cash compensation paid to said director for service in such office(s) during the 12 months preceding the commencement of the Proceeding; or (iii) in the case of an officer of the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries, 5% of the aggregate cash compensation paid to such officer for service in such office(s) during the 12 months preceding the commencement of such Proceeding.

12. ESTABLISHMENT OF TRUST. In order to secure the obligations of the Company to indemnify and to advance Expenses to Indemnitee pursuant to this Agreement, upon a Change of Control of the Company, the Company or its successor or assign shall establish a Trust (the "Trust") for the benefit of Indemnitee, the trustee (the "Trustee") of which shall be chosen by the Company and shall be reasonably acceptable to Indemnitee. Thereafter, from time to time, upon receipt of a written request from Indemnitee, the Company shall fund the Trust in amounts sufficient to satisfy any and all Liabilities and Expenses reasonably anticipated at the time of such request for which the Company may indemnify Indemnitee hereunder. The amount or amounts to be deposited in the Trust pursuant to the foregoing funding obligation shall be determined by mutual agreement of Indemnitee and the Company or, if the Company and Indemnitee are unable to reach such an agreement, by Independent Counsel selected jointly by the Company and Indemnitee. The terms of the Trust shall provide that except upon the consent of Indemnitee and the Company, (i) the Trust shall not be revoked or the principal thereof invaded, without the written consent of Indemnitee, (ii) the Trustee shall advance to Indemnitee, within 20 days of a request by Indemnitee, any and all Expenses, Indemnitee hereby agreeing to reimburse the Trustee of the Trust for all Expenses so advanced if a final determination is made by a court in a final adjudication from which there is no further right of appeal that Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified under this Agreement, (iii) the Trust shall continue to be funded by the Company in accordance with the funding obligations set forth in this Section, (iv) the Trustee shall promptly pay to Indemnitee any amounts to

-7-

which Indemnitee shall be entitled pursuant to this Agreement, and (v) all unexpended funds in the Trust shall revert to the Company upon a final determination by Independent Counsel selected by Indemnitee or a court of competent jurisdiction that Indemnitee has been fully indemnified with respect to the Proceeding giving rise to the funding of the Trust under the terms of this Agreement. The establishment of the Trust shall not, in any way, diminish the Company's obligation to indemnify Indemnitee against Expenses and Liabilities to the full extent required by this Agreement.

13. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS.

13.1 SEVERABILITY; PARTIAL INDEMNITY. If any provision or provisions of this Agreement (or any portion thereof) shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason whatever: (a) such provision shall be limited or modified in its application to the minimum extent necessary to avoid the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of such provision; (b) the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby; and (c) to the fullest extent possible, the provisions of this Agreement shall be construed so as to give effect to the intent manifested by the provision (or portion thereof) held invalid, illegal or unenforceable. If Indemnitee is entitled under any provision of this Agreement to indemnification by the Company for some or a portion of any Expenses or Liabilities of any type whatsoever incurred by him in the investigation, defense, settlement or appeal of a Proceeding but not entitled to all of the total amount thereof, the Company shall nevertheless indemnify Indemnitee for such total amount except as to the portion thereof for which it has been determined pursuant to Section 5 hereof that Indemnitee is not entitled.

13.2 COUNTERPART SIGNATURE PAGES. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed original, and all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
