ITEM 2. ACQUISITION OR DISPOSITION OF ASSETS
 
  On December 19, 1996, Offshore Logistics, Inc. ("OLOG") acquired 49% of the
common stock and a significant economic interest in Bristow Aviation Holdings
Limited ("Bristow"). Bristow is incorporated in England and holds all of the
outstanding shares in Bristow Helicopter Group Limited ("BHGL").
 
  Bristow was organized with three different classes of ordinary shares
(common stock) having disproportionate voting rights. Caledonia Investments
plc and its subsidiary, Caledonia Industrial & Services Limited,
(collectively, "Caledonia"), OLOG and Mr. Andreas K.L. Ugland of Oslo, Norway
(the "E.U. Investor"), a business affiliate of Bristow in a Norwegian
helicopter services company, own 49%, 49% and 2% respectively, of Bristow's
total outstanding ordinary shares, representing 37.5%, 37.5% and 25%,
respectively, of the total voting rights.
 
  OLOG, Caledonia, the EU Investor and Bristow entered into a shareholders'
agreement respecting, among other things, the composition of the board of
directors of Bristow. Under such agreement, Caledonia has the right to appoint
three directors, OLOG has the right to appoint two directors, the EU Investor
is appointed a director and the seventh director is appointed from Bristow's
management. On all matters coming before Bristow's board, Caledonia's
appointees has a total of five votes and the four other directors have one
vote each.
 
  These ownership and voting arrangements allow Bristow to satisfy The British
Civil Aviation Authority (the "CAA") requirements that qualified European
shareholders have majority ownership and control.
 
  OLOG paid (Pounds)80.2 million (approximately $132 million) in cash (funded
from existing OLOG cash balances and the proceeds of 6% Convertible
Subordinated Notes ("Notes") due 2003 and issued on December 17, 1996), $7.5
million of the Notes issued to Caledonia and 1,374,389 shares of Common Stock
issued to Caledonia and BHGL's management on December 19, 1996. In addition,
OLOG acquired (Pounds)5 million principal amount of BHGL's subordinated debt
for cash of approximately $8.9 million including accrued interest. Caledonia
received 1,300,000 shares of the Common Stock and BHGL's management received
74,389. OLOG provided Caledonia and BHGL's management with certain customary
registration rights under U.S. securities laws respecting the resale of their
shares of Common Stock (including the shares underlying the Notes issued to
Caledonia).
 
 
  In addition to its ownership of 49% of Bristow's outstanding ordinary shares
and (Pounds)5.0 million principal amount of Bristow's subordinated debt, OLOG
acquired (Pounds)91 million (approximately $150 million) principal amount of
subordinated unsecured loan stock (debt) of Bristow bearing interest at an
annual rate of 13.5% and payable semi-annually. Bristow has the right to defer
payment of interest on such debt until January 31, 2002. Any such deferred
interest would also accrue interest at an annual rate of 13.5%.
 
 
  So long as Caledonia has a significant interest in the shares of Common
Stock issued to it pursuant to the Master Agreement or maintains its voting
control of Bristow, Caledonia will have the right to nominate two persons to
the board of directors of OLOG and to replace any such directors so nominated.
Initially, Caledonia has nominated Peter N. Buckley, its Chairman, and
Jonathan H. Cartwright, Caledonia's Finance Director, to the OLOG board.
 
  Caledonia, OLOG and the EU Investor also entered into a put/call agreement
whereunder, upon giving specified prior notice, OLOG has the right to buy all
the Bristow shares held by Caledonia and the EU Investor, who, in turn, each
has the right to sell such shares to OLOG. Under current U.K. law, OLOG would
be required to find a qualified European investor to own any Bristow shares it
acquired under the put/call agreement. The agreement fixes the put/call price
of the shares at (Pounds)5.1 million (including (Pounds)4.9 million for
Caledonia's shares and (Pounds)0.2 million for the EU Investor's shares), plus
an additional amount equal to a compound annual return of 10% should either
Caledonia or the EU Investor elect to sell its shares to OLOG or 12% should
OLOG elect to buy such shares. OLOG has secured the fixed price of Caledonia's
Bristow shares with U.K. government securities and guarantee to Caledonia the
appropriate compound annual return thereon.
 
  OLOG will consolidate Bristow's results for financial reporting purposes.
The economic interests of Caledonia and the EU Investor in Bristow will be
limited, in effect, to the fixed put/call price for their respective shares
plus a compound annual return.
 
                                       1

 
  Caledonia will receive management fees from Bristow for as long as Caledonia
owns its Bristow shares. Such management fees will be payable semiannually in
advance and will total (Pounds)500,000 for the first year, (Pounds)900,000 for
each of the second and third years and (Pounds)757,000 for each of the fourth
and fifth years. If OLOG exercises its right to buy Caledonia's Bristow shares
within the first five years following closing, then the full amount of the
management fees for the remainder of the five-year period will be payable to
Caledonia in a lump sum at the time of the purchase. If Caledonia exercises
its right to sell its Bristow shares to OLOG, then no management fees would be
payable after completion of the sale, unless (i) OLOG fails to purchase the
shares, (ii) Caledonia exercised its right to sell following a sale by OLOG of
its Bristow shares or (iii) OLOG is in breach of its obligations under the
shareholders' agreement. If, at the end of five years from closing, neither
the right to buy nor the right to sell has been exercised, then the management
fees payable for each of the following two years will equal (Pounds)500,000.
The EU Investor may also receive nominal management fees from Bristow as long
as he owns Bristow shares.

ITEM 9. SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES PURSUANT TO REGULATION S.
 
  On December 19, 1996, the Registrant issued $7.5 million of the Convertible
Subordinated Notes due 2003 (the "Notes") to Caledonia in accordance with the
Bristow transaction discussed in Item 2 of this Form 8-K. The Notes are
convertible into common stock at any time on or after February 15, 1997, and
prior to the close of business on December 15, 2003, at a conversion price of
$22.86 per share, subject to adjustment in certain events. On such date, the
Registrant also issued 1,374,389 shares of Common Stock to Caledonia and BHGL's
management in the Bristow transaction. The Notes and Common Stock were issued
pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933. Caledonia agreed not
to make any disposition of its Notes or Common Stock in or into the United
States prior to January 29, 1997 and BHGL's management agreed not to make any
such dispositions of such Common Stock prior to January 29, 1998. Because two
representatives of Caledonia are members of the Board of Directors of the
Registrant, Caledonia may be deemed to be an "affiliate" of the Registrant.

                          INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT
 
The Stockholders'
Bristow Helicopter Group Limited
 
  We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Bristow
Helicopter Group Limited as at 31 December 1995 and 1994, and the related
consolidated profit and loss accounts and cash flow statements for each of the
years in the three year period ended 31 December 1995. These consolidated
financial statements are the responsibility of the management of Bristow
Helicopter Group Limited. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these
consolidated financial statements based on our audits.
 
  We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing
standards in the United Kingdom, which standards are substantially equivalent
to auditing standards generally accepted in the United States. Those standards
require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about
whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit
includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and
disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the
accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as
well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe
that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
  In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above
present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Bristow
Helicopter Group Limited as at 31 December 1995 and 1994, and the results of
its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the three year
period ended 31 December 1995, in conformity with generally accepted accounting
principles in the United Kingdom.
 
  Accounting principles generally accepted in the United Kingdom vary in
certain respects from accounting principles generally accepted in the United
States. Application of accounting principles generally accepted in the United
States would have affected results of operations for each of the years in the
three-year period ended 31 December 1995 and shareholders' funds as at 31
December 1995 and 1994, to the extent summarised in note 27 to the consolidated
financial statements.

The accompanying notes are an integral part of these statements. 10 BRISTOW HELICOPTER GROUP LIMITED NOTES (forming part of the financial statements) 1. ACCOUNTING POLICIES The following accounting policies have been applied consistently in dealing with items which are considered material in relation to the Group's financial statements. Basis of preparation The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with applicable accounting standards and under the historical cost accounting rules on a going concern basis. Basis of consolidation The Group financial statements consolidate the accounts of Bristow Helicopter Group Limited and its subsidiary undertakings (see note 25). These financial statements are made up to 31 December 1995 and 1994. For associated undertakings the Group includes its share of profits and losses in the consolidated profit and loss account and its share of post acquisition accumulated retained profits or deficits in the consolidated balance sheet. The consolidated financial statements are based on accounts of subsidiary undertakings which are coterminous with those of the parent company and on accounts of associated undertakings which are coterminous with or end no more than three months before those of the parent company. Unless otherwise stated, the acquisition method of accounting has been adopted. Under this method, the results of subsidiary and associated undertakings acquired or disposed of in the period are included in the consolidated profit and loss account from the date of acquisition or up to the date of disposal. Goodwill arising on consolidation (representing the excess of the fair value of the consideration given over the fair value of the separable net assets acquired) is taken to a goodwill write-off reserve. Any excess of the aggregate of the fair value of the separable net assets acquired over the fair value of the consideration given (negative goodwill) is credited direct to reserves. On the subsequent disposal or termination of a previously acquired business, the profit or loss on disposal or termination is calculated after charging the gross amount of any related goodwill previously taken to reserves. The amount of the profit for the financial year dealt with in the financial statements of Bristow Helicopter Group Limited is disclosed in note 17 to these accounts. Turnover Turnover represents total revenue receivable for the period exclusive of VAT and intra-group transactions. Leased Assets Assets held under finance leases are treated as tangible fixed assets; depreciation is provided over the estimated useful life of the assets and the deemed capital element of future rentals is included under creditors. Deemed interest, calculated on a reducing balance basis, is charged as interest payable over the period of the lease. The rental costs arising from operating leases are charged against profit before interest as they arise. 11 BRISTOW HELICOPTER GROUP LIMITED NOTES (continued) 1. ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued) Depreciation of Tangible Fixed Assets Depreciation is provided at rates calculated to write off the cost of the assets, less estimated residual value, either in the case of the Eurocopter AS332L, the new Sikorsky S76A + and the Bell 214ST helicopters, on a flying hour basis, or by equal instalments over their estimated useful economic life as follows:-- Freehold buildings......................................... 0-40 years Freehold land.............................................. Not depreciated Long leasehold property.................................... over lease period Short leasehold property................................... over lease period Plant and equipment........................................ 3-10 years Vehicles................................................... 3-5 years Helicopters, aircraft and capital spares................... 8-15 years
Research and Development Research and Development expenditure is written off against profits in the period in which it is incurred. Taxation The charge for taxation is based on the profit for the period and takes into account taxation deferred because of timing differences between the treatment of certain items for taxation and accounting purposes. Provision is made for deferred tax only to the extent that it is probable that an actual liability will crystallise. Provisions for Component Overhauls A provision for component overhauls is made on an hourly basis in respect of the major components of all twin-engine helicopters and certain fixed wing aircraft. Component overhauls in respect of the major components of single engine helicopters and certain fixed wing aircraft are charged to trading profit as costs are incurred. Foreign Currencies The trading results of overseas subsidiaries and associated companies are translated into sterling at average exchange rates for the period. Assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated into sterling either at the rates ruling at the Balance Sheet date or, where there are related forward foreign exchange contracts, at contract rates. Exchange differences arising from the translation of the results of overseas subsidiaries and associated companies at average rates, and the re-translation of the opening net investments in overseas subsidiaries and associated companies, are dealt with in Group reserves. All other exchange differences are dealt with in the profit and loss account. Deep Discounted Loan Notes, Loan Stock and Term Loans The loans are stated in the Balance Sheet at cost plus accrued interest to date. Interest is allocated to the Profit and Loss Account at a constant rate over the term of the loan. Stocks Consumable spares and minor rotable stocks are stated at the lower of cost or net realisable value. 12 BRISTOW HELICOPTER GROUP LIMITED NOTES (continued) 1. ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued) Work in progress and stocks for resale are valued at the lower of cost, inclusive of appropriate overheads, or net realisable value. Pension Costs The Group operates pension schemes providing benefits based on final pensionable pay. The assets of the schemes are held separately from those of the Group in an independently administered fund. Contributions to the scheme are charged to the profit and loss account so as to spread the cost of pensions over employees' working lives with the Group. 2. TURNOVER AND PROFIT ON ORDINARY ACTIVITIES BEFORE TAXATION Segmental reporting as required by Statement of Standard Accounting Practice No. 25 and analysis of turnover by geographical location and attributable market as required by the Companies Act 1985 have not been included in these financial statements as the Directors regard such disclosure as being seriously prejudicial to the interests of the business. 3. EMPLOYEE INFORMATION Staff numbers The average number of persons employed by the Group (including directors) during the year analysed by catagory, was as follows:

22. OWN SHARES The Group set up an Employee Share Scheme shortly after the management buyout of the Group in November 1991 to enable employees to acquire shares in the Group. The shares are held on behalf of the participating employees by Bristow Nominees Limited, which acts at all times in accordance with the provisions of the Trust Deed and Rules of the Employee Share Scheme. The amount shown as "Own shares" under current assets in the balance sheet at 31 December 1995 of (Pounds)1,221,000 (at 31 December 1994--(Pounds)88,000) represents the outstanding loan to Bristow Nominees Limited used to finance the repurchase of shares from leavers at the prevailing valuation. The total number of "C" ordinary shares of 5p each held by Bristow Nominees Limited at 31 December 1995 was 13,190,000. 23. CONTINGENT LIABILITIES The Company is party to an agreement dated 7 November 1991, guaranteeing the obligations of the Company and its subsidiary undertakings and charging its undertakings and property as security for such guarantees or obligations which have arisen or may arise pursuant to the bank loans and overdrafts, revolving and guarantee facilities, provided to the Company and its subsidiary undertakings by National Westminister Bank plc., The Governor and Company of the Bank of Scotland and 3i Group plc. On 31 December 1995 the amount due under the revolving and guarantee facilities was (Pounds)1.9 million (1994-- (Pounds)3.0 million). 24. PENSION SCHEME The Group pension schemes commenced on 31 January 1992. Prior to this date employees were members of pension schemes operated by The Bricom Group Limited. Independent actuaries have confirmed that the schemes were fully funded at the date of transfer from the Bricom Group Schemes to the Bristow Group Schemes and established the contribution rates to be adopted. 23 BRISTOW HELICOPTER GROUP LIMITED NOTES (continued) The Group pension schemes provide benefits based on final pensionable earnings. The assets of the schemes are held in separate trustee administered funds and contributions are invested independently of the Group's assets. The schemes are of the defined benefit type funded by contributions partly from employees and partly from Group companies at rates determined by independent actuaries on the basis of triennial valuations. The last actuarial assessment of the schemes was at 31 March 1995 which showed the market value of the schemes assets was (Pounds)76.7m. The level of funding being the actuarial value of assets expressed as a percentage of the benefits accrued to members, after allowing for future salary increases, was 96.7% at 31 March 1995. On the preliminary advice of the actuary, the Group has increased the employers contributions by a further one percent from 1 April 1995 to commence the elimination of this deficit. The main actuarial assumptions used to determine the level of contributions are that the long term annual rate of return on investments would be 2.75% in excess of annual increases in pensionable earnings and 5.5% in excess of annual increases to pensions. The charge for providing pension benefit for the year to 31 December 1995 was (Pounds)3,859,429 (31 December 1994--(Pounds)3,905,353). 24 BRISTOW HELICOPTER GROUP LIMITED NOTES (continued) 25.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN UNITED KINGDOM AND UNITED STATES GENERALLY ACCEPTED ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES The financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United Kingdom ("UK GAAP") which differ in certain respects from those generally accepted in the United States ("US GAAP"). The significant areas of difference affecting the financial statements of Bristow Helicopter Group Limited are described below. (a) Goodwill Under UK GAAP Bristow sets off goodwill arising on consolidation directly against retained earnings in the year of acquisition. Under US GAAP, goodwill arising on consolidation is capitalised on the balance sheet and then amortized over its useful life. Having considered all the relevant factors, Bristow have determined the expected useful life of goodwill to be 25 years. 25 BRISTOW HELICOPTER GROUP LIMITED NOTES (continued) 26. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN UNITED KINGDOM AND UNITED STATES GENERALLY ACCEPTED ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES (continued) (b) Deferred taxation Under UK GAAP Bristow provides for deferred taxation using the liability method on all material timing differences to the extent that it is considered probable that the liabilities will crystallise in the foreseeable future. Under US GAAP as set out in Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("FAS") No 109 "Accounting for Income Taxes", deferred taxation is provided for all temporary differences on a full liability basis. (c) Pensions Under UK GAAP Bristow accounts for pension costs in accordance with Statement of Standard Accounting Practice (SSAP) 24 on a long-term basis, spreading the expected pension costs over the service lives of employees, using assumptions as advised by an independent actuary. Under US GAAP, in accordance with FAS 87, "Employers' Accounting for Pensions" the cost of providing pensions is attributed to periods of service in accordance with the benefit formulas underlying the pension plans. The resultant projected benefit obligation is matched against the current value of the underlying plan assets and any unrecognised actuarial gains and losses in determining the pension cost or credit for the year. (d) Own share Under UK GAAP Bristow presents the outstanding loan to Bristow Nominees Limited used to finance the repurchase of shares from leavers as "Own shares" under current assets. Under US GAAP such loan would be presented as a reduction of shareholders' funds. (e) Statement of cash flows Under UK GAAP, cash flows are presented separately for operating activities, returns on investments and servicing of finance, taxation, investing activities and financing activities. Under US GAAP, cash flow activities are reported as operating activities, investing activities and financing activities. Cash flows from taxation and returns on investments and servicing of finance would, with the exception of dividends paid and cost of financing, be included as operating activities. The payment of dividends and cost of financing would be included under financing activities. Under UK GAAP, cash and cash equivalents include bank loans and overdrafts repayable within three months from the date of the advance. Under US GAAP such cash flow activities are included under financing activities. 26 BRISTOW HELICOPTER GROUP LIMITED NOTES (continued) 27.

30 BRISTOW HELICOPTER GROUP LIMITED NOTES (forming part of the financial statements) 1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION The accompanying interim consolidated financial statements of Bristow Helicopter Group Limited as at 30 September 1996 and 31 December 1995 and for the nine months ended 30 September 1996 and 1995 are unaudited. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the financial statements have been included therein. The results of these interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the year. For the purposes of these consolidated interim financial statements, certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United Kingdom have been omitted.

32 ANNEX B 33 UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS The following unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial information is derived from the historical financial statements of OLOG and Bristow and certain assumptions deemed appropriate by the Company. The Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income for the 12 months ended June 30, 1996 and the three months ended September 30, 1996 reflects (i) the Bristow Transaction and (ii) the issuance of the Notes and the application of the net proceeds therefrom, as if such transactions had occurred on July 1, 1995. The Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of September 30, 1996 reflects such transactions as if they had occurred on September 30, 1996. The Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the notes thereto and the historical financial statements of OLOG, including the notes thereto, included in the Company's Form 10-K and the historical financial statements of Bristow, including the notes thereto, included elsewhere herein. The pro forma adjustments to give effect to the various events described above are based upon currently available information and upon certain assumptions that management believes are reasonable. Bristow's historical financial data included in these pro forma statements have been restated to conform with U.S. GAAP. For a discussion of the principal differences between U.K. and U.S. GAAP, see Notes 26 and 27 to Bristow's Consolidated Financial Statements. The Bristow Transaction will be accounted for by the Company under the purchase method of accounting and the assets and liabilities of Bristow will be recorded at their estimated fair market values at the date of acquisition. The adjustments included in the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Financial Statements reflect the Company's preliminary determination of these adjustments based upon available information. There can be no assurance that the actual adjustments will not vary significantly from the estimated adjustments reflected in the Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Bristow's September 30, 1996 historical balance sheet was translated from British Pounds Sterling to U.S. Dollars using the exchange rate on that date of 1.5634. The income statements for the three months ended September 30, 1996 and 12 months ended June 30, 1996 were translated using a weighted average exchange rate of 1.5547 and 1.5475, respectively. The Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements do not purport to be indicative of the financial position or results of operations that would actually have occurred if the transactions described had occurred as presented in such statements or that may be obtained in the future. In addition, future results may vary significantly from the results reflected in such statements due to general economic conditions, oil and gas commodity prices, the demand and prices for oil and gas related offshore transportation services, increases in the number of helicopters available for service, the exchange rate between U.S. Dollars and British Pounds Sterling, and several other factors, many of which are beyond the Company's control. 34 OFFSHORE LOGISTICS, INC.

     waive all rights of pre-emption over any of the BHGL Loan Stock conferred
     upon them by the BHGL Loan Stock Instrument or otherwise.

3.10 Caledonia, CIS, OLOG and OLII agree that where any action is required of

     Completion agrees that he will not sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of,
     mortgage, charge or encumber the whole or any part of such OLOG Common
     Stock or grant to any third party any rights therein without the prior
     written consent of OLOG (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld)
     until the expiry of one year after the Completion Date save that he may
     sell or transfer such OLOG Common Stock to his spouse, brother or sister,
     child or children ("FAMILY MEMBER") but only on terms that such family
     member agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Clause 3.12 on the
     same basis as such individual manager and that such family member will if
     required by OLOG enter into a deed of adherence with this Clause 3.12 in a
     form satisfactory to OLOG and OLOG shall be entitled to include an
     endorsement to this effect on any certificate of such OLOG Common Stock

4.   DEFAULT UNDER CLAUSE 3

4.1  Completion of this Agreement shall not take place unless and until
     completion of each of Stage One to Stage Seven has occurred within 20 days
     of the date of this Agreement.

                                       8

 
4.2  If Completion of any of Stage One to Stage Seven does not take place on the
     date and time set out in this Agreement, the parties may:

     4.2.1  defer Completion thereof to a date no later than 20 days after the
            date of this Agreement (in which case this Clause shall apply to
            Completion as so deferred); or

     4.2.2  rescind this Agreement without liability to any party in which case
            and from that date the provisions of this Agreement (other than
            Clause 7 (Announcements) and Clause 11 (Costs)) shall have no effect
            and no party shall have any liability under them (but without
            prejudice to the rights of any of the parties in respect of any
            antecedent breach).

5.   WARRANTIES

5.1  Each of the Individual Managers separately represents and warrants to OLOG
     and OLII that, so far as he is actually aware, after having made reasonable
     enquiries of Anthony Jones and Philip Hunt and KPMG, the Warranties set out
     in Part I of Schedule 9 are true and accurate in all material respects on
     the date of this Agreement.

5.2  For the purposes of this Agreement an Individual Manager shall not be
     deemed to be actually aware of any matter, fact or circumstance which would
     be a breach of the Warranties set out in Part 1 of Schedule 9 unless he was
     actually aware of the matter, fact or circumstance at the date of this
     Agreement and in addition in the case of the Warranties set out in
     paragraphs 1.1.2, 1.2.3, 4.1.1, 4.1.3, 4.1.5, 4.2, 6.1, 6.4, 7.3 (insofar
     as it relates to employees of the Company and British Island Airways
     (Guernsey) Limited) and 9.1.6 that he was aware (or ought reasonably to
     have been aware) at the date of this Agreement that such matter, fact or
     circumstance would be a breach of the Warranties contained in paragraphs
     1.1.2, 1.2.3, 4.1.1, 4.1.3, 4.1.5, 4.2, 6.1, 6.4, 7.3 (subject as
     aforesaid) and 9.1.6 unless disclosed.

5.3  Each of the Vendors severally represents and warrants to OLOG and OLII that
     the Warranties set out in Part II of Schedule 9 are true and accurate in
     all material respects on the date of this Agreement.

5.4  OLOG warrants and represents to CIS, the MGDC Vendors and the Management
     Vendors that the Warranties set out in Part III of Schedule 9 in so far as
     they apply to CIS, the MGDC Vendors and the Management Vendors respectively
     are true and accurate in all material respects on the date of this
     Agreement.

5.5  The Vendors shall not (in the event of any claim being made against any of
     them in connection with the sale of the Shares or the BHGL Loan Stock
     pursuant to this Agreement) make any claim against the Group or against any
     director or employee of the Group on whom any of the Vendors may have
     relied before agreeing to any term of this Agreement or authorising any
     statement in the First Disclosure Letter or the Second Disclosure Letter.

5.6  Each of the Warranties shall be construed as a separate warranty.

5.7  The Warranties shall be deemed to be repeated at Completion and any express
     or implied reference therein to the date of this Agreement shall be
     replaced by a reference to the Completion Date.

                                       9

 
5.8  Save as provided in Clause 6.7, the rights and remedies of the parties in
     respect of a breach of any of the Warranties shall not be affected by
     Completion, by the giving of any time or other indulgence by any party to
     any person, by any party rescinding or not rescinding this Agreement, or by
     any other cause whatsoever except a specific waiver or release by any party
     in writing; and any such waiver or release shall not prejudice or affect
     any remaining rights or remedies of any party.

6.   LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY UNDER THE WARRANTIES

6.1  This Clause 6 and Schedule 10 shall have effect to limit the liability of
     each of the Vendors in respect of this Agreement.

6.2  No limitations or qualifications on the liability of any Vendor or OLOG in
     respect of a breach of Warranty or any other provision of this Agreement
     shall apply in the case of fraud or wilful misrepresentation.

6.3  Save in respect of any breach of Warranty giving rise to a right of
     rescission pursuant to Clause 6.7, OLOG and OLII shall not be entitled to
     claim that any fact or circumstance constitutes a breach of any of the
     Warranties set out in Part I or Part II of Schedule 9 if any member of the
     OLOG Group or any of its directors or employees, is actually aware of such
     fact or circumstance at the date of this Agreement or if such fact or
     circumstance has been disclosed in this Agreement, in the First Disclosure
     Letter, the Second Disclosure Letter or any other letter, document or
     communication set out in the First Disclosure Letter or the Second
     Disclosure Letter.

6.4  None of the Warranties shall be deemed to constitute directly or indirectly
     a Warranty in respect of the future financial or trading position,
     performance or prospects of the Group or any member thereof and OLOG and
     OLII acknowledge and agree that save as aforesaid none of the Vendors makes
     any warranty as to such matters.

6.5  Each of OLOG and OLII confirms that it has not relied on any warranty,
     representation or undertaking of any of the Vendors or any other person
     save for any warranty, representation or undertaking expressly set out in
     this Agreement and that save as expressly provided for in this Agreement
     all representations, warranties and undertakings whether express or
     implied, statutory or otherwise are expressly excluded.

6.6  Any payment made by any of the Vendors pursuant to the terms of this
     Agreement shall be treated by the parties as a reduction pro tanto of the
     purchase price payable by him/it for the Shares.

6.7  The sole remedy of OLOG and OLII in respect of any claim for breach of
     Warranty under Part 1 or Part II of Schedule 9 shall be in damages. OLOG
     and OLII shall have no right to rescind or terminate this Agreement for
     breach of Warranty unless at any time after the date of this Agreement and
     prior to Completion there occurs any act or event constituting a material
     breach of Warranty at the date of this Agreement or which would constitute
     a material breach of Warranty if such Warranty were repeated on any day
     from the date of this Agreement to and including the Completion Date. In
     such case OLOG or OLII shall be entitled by notice in writing on the other
     parties to this Agreement not to proceed to Completion in which event this
     Agreement shall be of no effect and no party shall have any further
     liability to the other. Completion of the 

                                       10

 
     transaction contemplated by this Agreement in circumstances where OLOG or
     OLII are actually aware that a right to rescind has arisen shall constitute
     a waiver by OLOG and OLII of its rights in respect of the relevant breach.
     For the purposes of this Clause 6.7 an act or event shall constitute a
     "material breach" of warranty if it is both a breach of warranty and an act
     or event which is material and adverse to the assets and liabilities,
     financial position, profits and losses, or prospects of the Group taken as
     a whole.

7.   ANNOUNCEMENTS

     Save where an announcement is required by law or the rules of London Stock
     Exchange Limited, NASDAQ or any other exchange upon which the securities of
     Caledonia or OLOG are traded or dealt, none of the parties shall make, or
     procure or permit the making of, any announcement whether before or after
     Completion with respect to this Agreement or any ancillary matter without
     the prior consent of OLOG, Caledonia and Morgan Grenfell Development
     Capital Nominees Limited.

8.   ASSIGNMENT

     Any party may assign its rights under this Agreement after Completion and
     this Agreement shall be binding on and enure for the benefit of the
     parties' successors, assigns and personal representatives.

9.   ENTIRE AGREEMENT

     This Agreement, together with the First Disclosure Letter, the Second
     Disclosure Letter and the documents in the agreed form, represents the
     entire understanding, and constitutes the whole agreement, in relation to
     its subject matter and supersedes any previous agreement between the
     parties with respect thereto and without prejudice to the generality of the
     foregoing in the absence of fraud or wilful misrepresentation, excludes any
     warranty, condition or other undertaking implied at law or by custom.

10.  FURTHER ASSURANCE

10.1 So far as it remains to be performed this Agreement shall continue in full
     force and effect notwithstanding Completion.

10.2 Each of the parties shall after Completion execute all such deeds and
     documents and do all such things as any other party may reasonably require
     for perfecting the transactions intended to be effected under or pursuant
     to this Agreement.

     Vendors shall pay their own costs in connection with the preparation and
