(Exhibit A to Plan)


Attention: President

Sir or Madam:

The undersigned elects to exercise the option to purchase _____ shares of Common Stock ("Shares") of COMPATIBLE SYSTEMS CORPORATION (the "Corporation") under and pursuant to the incentive stock option _____ or non-qualified stock option _____ (check one) granted to the undersigned by the Corporation on ____________, l9___, pursuant to the Corporation's 1993 Stock Option Plan (the "Plan").

Prior to issuance of said Shares, I will make full payment of the purchase price for the Shares in cash, if permitted by the Corporation by tender of stock of the Corporation having a fair market value not less than the purchase price, or as otherwise approved by the Corporation's Board of Directors.

I represent and agree that I am over twenty-one (21) years of age, that I am acquiring the Shares for investment and that I have no intention to transfer, sell or otherwise dispose of such Shares, except as permitted pursuant to the Plan and in compliance with applicable securities laws.

I understand I may be required or requested, from time to time, to sign additional documents concerning or related to my investment and compliance with other laws, and will do so. I understand I must sign a Stockholders' Agreement if requested to do so by the Corporation, if that agreement is applicable to holders of 67% or more of the outstanding Common Stock.

I further acknowledge and understand that the Shares must be held indefinitely unless they are subsequently registered under the Securities Act of 1933 or an exemption from such registration is available. I further acknowledge and understand that the Corporation is under no obligation to register the Shares and that, in the absence of registration, the Shares may not be transferred. I understand that the instrument evidencing the Shares will be imprinted with legends which prohibit the transfer of the Shares unless they are registered or such registration is not required in the opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Corporation. I do not have any contract, agreement or arrangement with any persons to sell, transfer or grant participations to such person or to any third person with respect to any of the Shares.


I am aware of the adoption of Rule 144 by the Securities and Exchange Commission, promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, which permits limited public resale of securities acquired on a non-public offering subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including, among other things: the availability of certain public information about the Corporation, the


resale occurring not less than two years after the party has purchased and paid for the securities to be sold, the sale being through a broker in an unsolicited "brokers' transaction," and the amount of securities being sold during any three-month period not exceeding specified limitations (generally, 1% of the total amount outstanding).

I agree further that said Shares are being acquired by me in accordance with and subject to the terms, provisions and conditions of the Plan and the Stock Option Agreement, to all of which I hereby expressly assent. These statements shall bind and inure to the benefit of my heirs, legal representatives, successors and assigns.

My address of record is:



and my Social Security Number is:

Very truly yours,

Receipt of the above is hereby acknowledged:

forth in Section 4 below, accompanied by full payment of

This option may not be exercised after eight years from the date
of grant of this option, as set forth below, and may be exercised

of this agreement.
