                               EXPLANATORY NOTE:
 
This Form 10/A-3 is being filed to include financial information for New Gaylord
Entertainment Company for the six months ended June 30, 1997 and to update
certain other information included in the Information Statement dated July 16,
1997 previously furnished to stockholders of Gaylord Entertainment Company in
connection with the proposed pro rata distribution by Gaylord Entertainment
Company to its stockholders of all of the outstanding capital stock of New
Gaylord Entertainment Company.
 
                            [GAYLORD ENTERTAINMENT]
 
                             INFORMATION STATEMENT
                       NEW GAYLORD ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY
 
                          COMMON STOCK, $.01 PAR VALUE
 
     This Information Statement ("Information Statement") has been prepared by
Gaylord Entertainment Company, a Delaware corporation ("Old Gaylord"), in
connection with the proposed pro rata distribution (the "Distribution") by Old
Gaylord to its stockholders of all of the outstanding Common Stock, $.01 par
value ("New Gaylord Common Stock"), of New Gaylord Entertainment Company
(formerly known as Gaylord Broadcasting Company), a Delaware corporation and a
wholly owned subsidiary of Old Gaylord ("New Gaylord"). It is currently
anticipated that the Distribution will be effected on the day prior to the
effective time of the proposed merger (the "Merger") of G Acquisition Corp.
("Sub"), a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Westinghouse
Electric Corporation, a Pennsylvania corporation ("Westinghouse"), with and into
Old Gaylord, as such Merger is described in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus dated
July 16, 1997 (the "Proxy Statement/Prospectus"), relating to the Special
Meeting of Stockholders of Old Gaylord held on August 15, 1997 (the "Special
Meeting"). At the Special Meeting, the Old Gaylord stockholders approved the
Merger.
 
     As a result of the Distribution, each holder of record as of the record
date for the Distribution (as established below, the "Record Date") of (a)
shares of Class A Common Stock, $.01 par value, of Old Gaylord ("Old Gaylord
Class A Common Stock"), and (b) shares of Class B Common Stock, $.01 par value,
of Old Gaylord ("Old Gaylord Class B Common Stock" and, together with the Old
Gaylord Class A Common Stock, the "Old Gaylord Common Stock"), will receive that
number of shares of New Gaylord Common Stock equal to one-third the number of
shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock held of record by such holder. Cash will be
distributed in lieu of any fractional shares of New Gaylord Common Stock. The
Record Date for the Distribution has been established by Old Gaylord's Board of
Directors as the fifth calendar day following the receipt of certain Tax Rulings
(as defined herein) (or legal opinions in lieu of certain of such rulings). Old
Gaylord will issue a press release announcing the expected date of the
Distribution promptly after the Tax Rulings are received.
 
     The obligation of Old Gaylord to consummate the Distribution is subject to
the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions, including, among other
things, the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions to the obligations of
Westinghouse and Old Gaylord to effect the Merger (other than the consummation
of the Recapitalization (as defined herein), the Restructuring (as defined
herein), and the Distribution) as set forth in the Agreement and Plan of Merger,
dated as of February 9, 1997, among Westinghouse, Sub, and Old Gaylord (the
"Merger Agreement"). The consummation of the Distribution is a condition to the
obligations of Westinghouse and Old Gaylord to effect the Merger but will occur
only if all other conditions to the Merger are satisfied or waived and the
Merger is about to occur. See "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION, AND THE
MERGER."
                                                        (continued on next page)
                             ---------------------
 
   THE SECURITIES TO BE ISSUED IN THE DISTRIBUTION HAVE NOT BEEN APPROVED OR
 DISAPPROVED BY THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION OR ANY STATE SECURITIES
     COMMISSION NOR HAS THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION OR ANY STATE
 SECURITIES COMMISSION PASSED UPON THE ACCURACY OR ADEQUACY OF THIS INFORMATION
      STATEMENT. ANY REPRESENTATION TO THE CONTRARY IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE.
                             ---------------------
 
           The date of this Information Statement is August 29, 1997.

<PAGE>   3
 
     Prior to the Distribution and the Merger, Old Gaylord will be restructured
(the "Restructuring") so that the assets and liabilities that are part of Old
Gaylord's hospitality, attractions, music, television, and radio businesses,
including all of Old Gaylord's long-term debt, as well as Old Gaylord's interest
in the Country Music Television cable networks outside of the United States and
Canada ("CMT International") and the option to acquire 95% of and the assets
used in the management of Z Music, Inc. ("Z Music"), a cable network currently
featuring primarily contemporary Christian music videos, will be transferred to
or retained by New Gaylord or one of its subsidiaries. Following the
Restructuring, the businesses of New Gaylord will include the Grand Ole Opry;
the Opryland Hotel; the Opryland theme park; the Wildhorse Saloon; the Ryman
Auditorium; the broadcasting operations comprised of the CBS-affiliate
television station KTVT in Dallas-Fort Worth and three Nashville-based radio
stations; interests in country and Christian music publishing and recording with
the Opryland Music Group and Word Entertainment ("Word"), and the operations of
CMT International and the management of Z Music. As a result of the
Restructuring, certain of the assets of Old Gaylord's cable networks business,
consisting primarily of The Nashville Network ("TNN") and the domestic and
Canadian operations of Country Music Television ("CMT"), and certain other
related businesses, and certain liabilities related thereto, will be held by Old
Gaylord or one of its subsidiaries (other than New Gaylord or its subsidiaries
after giving effect to the Restructuring) and will be acquired by Westinghouse
in the Merger.
 
     No consideration will be paid by Old Gaylord stockholders for the shares of
New Gaylord Common Stock to be received by them in the Distribution. There is
currently no public trading market for the New Gaylord Common Stock. The shares
of New Gaylord Common Stock to be distributed in the Distribution have been
approved for listing, subject to official notice of issuance, on the New York
Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") under the symbol "GET," which is currently the
symbol for the Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock. No fractional shares of New
Gaylord Common Stock will be distributed in the Distribution. Old Gaylord
stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to receive a fractional share of
New Gaylord Common Stock will receive cash in lieu thereof. See "THE
RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION, AND THE MERGER -- Manner of Effecting the
Distribution."

the other related businesses that will be acquired by Westinghouse in the Merger
are collectively referred to herein as the "Cable Networks Business." All

                                  NEW GAYLORD
 
     Following the Restructuring, the Distribution, and the Merger, New Gaylord
will be a diversified entertainment company emphasizing family values and its
country music roots, operating principally in three industry segments: (i)
hospitality and attractions; (ii) broadcasting and music; and (iii) cable
networks. New Gaylord's predecessor traces its origins to a newspaper publishing
business founded in 1903 in the Oklahoma Territory by a group including the
Gaylord and Dickinson families. In 1928, New Gaylord's predecessor entered the
radio broadcasting business and, in 1949, expanded its broadcasting interests to
include television stations. In 1983, New Gaylord's predecessor acquired an
interrelated group of businesses ("Opryland USA") tracing their origins to the
Grand Ole Opry music radio show created in 1925. Opryland USA has become the
cornerstone of the company's hospitality and attractions businesses. Also in
1983, Opryland USA entered the cable networks business by launching TNN, a cable
network with a national audience featuring country lifestyles, entertainment,
and sports, and, in 1991, acquired a 67% interest in CMT, a cable network with a
24-hour country music video format. The first of the CMT International cable
networks was launched in Europe in 1992 and CMT International has since expanded
into Asia, the South Pacific, and Latin America. In 1994, New Gaylord's
predecessor acquired an option to purchase 95% of Z Music, a cable network
currently featuring primarily contemporary Christian music videos, which it
currently manages. In 1997, New Gaylord's predecessor acquired the assets of
Word, a contemporary Christian music company.
 
     As a result of the Restructuring, the Distribution, and the Merger, the
Cable Networks Business will be acquired by Westinghouse. Following the
Restructuring, the Distribution, and the Merger, the New Gaylord Business will
consist of Old Gaylord's hospitality, attractions, music, television, and radio
businesses, as well as CMT International and the management of and option to
acquire 95% of Z Music, and will include the Grand Ole Opry, the Opryland Hotel,
the Opryland theme park, the Wildhorse Saloon, the Ryman Auditorium,
CBS-affiliate television station KTVT (Dallas-Fort Worth), three Nashville-based
radio stations, Opryland Music Group's interests in music publishing, and Word's
music publishing and recording operations. See "BUSINESS OF NEW GAYLORD."
 
     As a result of the Distribution, New Gaylord will be an independent,
publicly held company. The current executive officers and directors of Old
Gaylord are expected to be directors and executive officers of New Gaylord, with
the exception of David Hall, currently a Vice President of Old Gaylord, who will
remain with the Cable Networks Business following the Merger and will be
employed by an affiliate of Westinghouse. See "MANAGEMENT."
 
     New Gaylord was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware in
1956 and, since that time, has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Old Gaylord.
Prior to the Restructuring, substantially all of Old Gaylord's assets and
liabilities have been held by, and substantially all of Old Gaylord's operations
have been conducted through, New Gaylord and direct and indirect subsidiaries of
New Gaylord, and such assets, liabilities, and results of operations are
reflected in the historical Consolidated Financial Statements of New Gaylord
included herein.
                                        2

<PAGE>   6
 
     New Gaylord's principal executive offices are located at One Gaylord Drive,
Nashville, Tennessee 37214, and its telephone number is (615) 316-6000.
Immediately after the Merger, New Gaylord will change its name to "Gaylord
Entertainment Company."
 
                                THE TRANSACTIONS
 
     The Recapitalization.  Prior to the Distribution, New Gaylord will effect a
recapitalization (the "Recapitalization") pursuant to which New Gaylord will
amend and restate its Certificate of Incorporation to, among other things, (i)
authorize one class of common stock of New Gaylord, (ii) increase the currently
authorized number of shares of New Gaylord Common Stock to 150,000,000 shares,
(iii) convert the 1,000 shares of New Gaylord common stock, $100.00 par value,
currently outstanding into a number of shares of New Gaylord Common Stock equal
to one-third the total number of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock outstanding
immediately prior to the Record Date, and (iv) authorize 100,000,000 shares of
preferred stock, $.01 par value, of New Gaylord ("Preferred Stock"). See
"DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK." Based on the number of shares of Old Gaylord
Common Stock outstanding on July 15, 1997, the 1,000 shares of New Gaylord
common stock currently outstanding would be converted into 32,425,230 shares of
New Gaylord Common Stock, all of which will be distributed to Old Gaylord's
stockholders in the Distribution.
 
     The Restructuring.  Prior to the Distribution, Old Gaylord will effect a
series of mergers, asset and stock transfers, and liability assumptions among
itself and its subsidiaries. The purpose and effect of the Restructuring is to
separate the New Gaylord Business, which is not being acquired by Westinghouse
in the Merger, from the Cable Networks Business. In connection with the
Restructuring, New Gaylord will, or will cause one of its subsidiaries to,
assume all liabilities of Old Gaylord and its subsidiaries other than certain
liabilities to the extent that they arise out of the Cable Networks Business,
which Old Gaylord will, or will cause one of its subsidiaries to, retain or
assume. See "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION, AND THE MERGER -- The
Restructuring."
 
     The Distribution.  Upon completion of the Restructuring and on the day
prior to the effective time of the Merger, Old Gaylord will effect the
Distribution by distributing to each holder of record of Old Gaylord Common
Stock as of the Record Date certificates representing that number of shares of
New Gaylord Common Stock equal to one-third the number of shares of Old Gaylord
Common Stock held by such holder. Cash will be distributed in lieu of any
fractional shares of New Gaylord Common Stock. See "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE
DISTRIBUTION, AND THE MERGER."
 
     The Merger.  At the effective time of the Merger, Sub will be merged with
and into Old Gaylord, with Old Gaylord continuing as the surviving corporation
and a wholly owned subsidiary of Westinghouse. The number of shares of
Westinghouse Common Stock to be received by Old Gaylord's stockholders in
connection with the Merger for each outstanding share of Old Gaylord Common
Stock (subject to the proviso to this sentence, the "Per Share Merger
Consideration") will be equal to (i) the quotient of (x) $1.55 billion divided
by (y) the number of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock issued and outstanding
immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger, divided by (ii) the
average of the daily closing prices per share of Common Stock, par value $1.00
per share, of Westinghouse ("Westinghouse Common Stock") as reported on the NYSE
Composite Transactions List for the 15 consecutive full NYSE trading days
immediately preceding the third full NYSE trading day prior to the effective
time of the Merger; provided, that Westinghouse will not be required to issue
more than 110 million shares of Westinghouse Common Stock in the Merger (or 88
million shares in the unlikely event that Westinghouse consummates the
anticipated separation of its power-related and non-power-related businesses
into two companies (the "Westinghouse Distribution") prior to the effective time
of the Merger). If the issuance of 110 million shares (or 88 million shares, as
the case may be) of Westinghouse Common Stock would result in Old Gaylord's
stockholders receiving shares with an aggregate value of less than $1.55 billion
(calculated in accordance with the Merger Agreement as described above), then
Old Gaylord would have the right to terminate the Merger Agreement, subject to
Westinghouse's right to issue additional shares. Based on the average of the
daily closing prices per share of Westinghouse Common Stock as reported on the
NYSE Composite Transactions List for the 15 day trading period ended July 15,
1997, and on the number of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock outstanding on
that date, the Per Share Merger Consideration would have been 0.673 shares of
                                        3

<PAGE>   7
 
Westinghouse Common Stock. The actual Per Share Merger Consideration at the
effective time of the Merger, however, may be greater or less than the above
number.
 
     Old Gaylord and Westinghouse currently anticipate that the Merger will be
consummated prior to the Westinghouse Distribution. In such event, stockholders
of Old Gaylord who become shareholders of Westinghouse in connection with the
Merger and who continue to hold their shares of Westinghouse Common Stock on the
record date for the Westinghouse Distribution will be entitled to participate in
the Westinghouse Distribution on the same basis as all other shareholders of
Westinghouse. The foregoing is a brief summary of certain terms of the Merger
Agreement. A more complete description of the Merger and the Merger Agreement
may be found in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus.
 
                                THE DISTRIBUTION
 
     Set forth below is a brief summary of certain terms of the Distribution and
related transactions. The Distribution Agreement is more fully described herein
under "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION, AND THE MERGER," and is attached as
Annex II to the Proxy Statement/Prospectus.

                             Common Stock, and cash in lieu of any fractional
                             shares of New Gaylord Common Stock. Based on the
                             number of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock
                             outstanding as of July 15, 1997, it is estimated

                             established by Old Gaylord's Board of Directors as
                             the fifth calendar day following the receipt of the
                             Tax Rulings (or legal opinions in lieu of certain
                             of such rulings). Old Gaylord will issue a press
                             release announcing the expected Time of
                             Distribution promptly after the Tax Rulings are
                             received.
 
Trading Market.............  The shares of New Gaylord Common Stock to be
                             distributed in the Distribution have been approved

Tax Consequences...........  Consummation of the Distribution and the Merger is
                             conditioned upon the receipt of private letter
                             rulings (the "Tax Rulings") issued by the Internal
                             Revenue Service (the "IRS") to the effect that (i)
                             the Distribution will qualify as a transaction
                             described in Section 355(a) of the United States
                             Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the
                             "Code"), and the transfer of assets and liabilities
                             to New Gaylord immediately preceding the
                             Distribution will qualify as a transaction
                             described in Section 351 of the Code and/or a
                             "reorganization" under Section 368(a)(1)(D) of the
                             Code, and (ii) the Merger will qualify as a
                             "reorganization" under Section 368(a)(1)(B) of the
                             Code. In addition, Old Gaylord and Westinghouse
                             have requested rulings from the IRS to the effect
                             that certain aspects of the Restructuring will not
                             be taxable to New Gaylord or any of its
                             subsidiaries, and consummation of the Distribution
                             and the Merger is conditioned upon either (i) the
                             receipt of such rulings or (ii) the receipt by Old
                             Gaylord and Westinghouse of opinions of their
                             respective counsel to the same effect. See "CERTAIN
                             U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES."
 
Post-Closing Covenants
  Agreement................  Westinghouse, Old Gaylord, New Gaylord, and certain
                             of New Gaylord's subsidiaries will enter into a
                             Post-Closing Covenants Agreement, the form of which
                             is attached as Annex IV to the Proxy
                             Statement/Prospectus (the "Post-Closing Covenants
                             Agreement"), which will provide, among other
                             things, (i) that New Gaylord and certain of its
                             subsidiaries will indemnify Westinghouse and its
                             affiliates (including, after the Merger, Old
                             Gaylord) against certain losses and liabilities and
                             Westinghouse will indemnify New Gaylord and its
                             affiliates against certain losses and liabilities;
                             (ii) that New Gaylord and its subsidiaries will not
                             engage in certain specified activities that would
                             constitute competition with the Cable Networks
                             Business, and Westinghouse will not engage in
                             certain activities that would constitute
                             competition with CMT International; and (iii) for a
                             post-closing adjustment based on the level of
                             working capital of the Cable Networks Business. See
                             "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION, AND THE
                             MERGER -- Post-Closing Covenants Agreement."
 
Tax Disaffiliation
  Agreement................  New Gaylord, Old Gaylord, and Westinghouse will
                             also enter into a Tax Disaffiliation Agreement, the
                             form of which is attached as Annex V to the Proxy
                             Statement/Prospectus (the "Tax Disaffiliation
                             Agreement"), which will set forth each party's
                             rights and obligations with respect to U.S.
                             Federal, state, local, and foreign taxes for
                             periods before and after the Merger and related
                             matters. See "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION,
                             AND THE MERGER -- Tax Disaffiliation Agreement."

                             Restructuring) will enter into a number of other
                             agreements relating to, among other things, the

                             RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION, AND THE
                             MERGER -- Relationships with Old Gaylord and

                           FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
     Certain statements contained in this Information Statement, including those
under the captions "BUSINESS OF NEW GAYLORD" and "MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND
ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS," constitute
"forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities
Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements involve known and
unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause the actual
results, performance, or achievements of New Gaylord to be materially different
from any future results, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by
such forward-looking statements. When used in this Information Statement, the
words "estimate," "project," "intend," "expect," "anticipate," and similar
expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These
forward-looking statements are based on various factors, many of which are
beyond New Gaylord's control, and were derived utilizing numerous assumptions
and other important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially
from those in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause
actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements
include, but are not limited to, the following: uncertainty as to New Gaylord's
future profitability without the Cable Networks Business; the growth in the
popularity of Christian music and family values lifestyles; the advertising
market in the United States in general and in New Gaylord's local television and
radio markets; the perceived attractiveness of Nashville, Tennessee as a
convention and tourist destination; competition in New Gaylord's existing and
potential future lines of business; New Gaylord's ability to integrate and
successfully operate any acquired businesses and the risks associated with such
businesses; and uncertainty as to the future profitability of any acquired
businesses. Other factors and assumptions not identified above were also
involved in the derivation of these forward-looking statements, and the failure
of such other assumptions to be realized as well as other factors may also cause
actual results to differ materially from those projected. New Gaylord assumes no
obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect actual results,
changes in assumptions, or changes in other factors affecting such
forward-looking statements.

                LISTING AND TRADING OF NEW GAYLORD COMMON STOCK
 
     The shares of New Gaylord Common Stock to be distributed in the
Distribution have been approved for listing, subject to official notice of
issuance, on the NYSE under the symbol "GET," which is currently the symbol for
the Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock. There is currently no public trading
market for the New Gaylord Common Stock and there can be no assurance as to the
establishment or consistency of any such market. Of the 32.4 million shares of
New Gaylord Common Stock that are expected to be outstanding following the
Distribution, 19.2 million shares will become eligible for sale in the public
market immediately following the Distribution, and the remaining 13.2 million
shares held by affiliates will become eligible for resale, either immediately
following the Distribution or 90 days thereafter depending on the SEC's response
to Old Gaylord's request for interpretive guidance on this point, subject to
volume, manner of sale, and other limitations of Rule 144 under the Securities
Act. Persons who may be deemed to be affiliates of New Gaylord after the
Distribution generally include individuals or entities that control, are
controlled by, or are under common control with New Gaylord, and may include the
directors and executive officers of New Gaylord as well as any principal
stockholder of New Gaylord. See "SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS
AND MANAGEMENT."
 
                                DIVIDEND POLICY
 
     After the Distribution, the Board of Directors of New Gaylord intends to
establish a policy of declaring and paying regular quarterly cash dividends on
the New Gaylord Common Stock, although the amount of such dividends has not yet
been determined. The payment and amount of future dividends will be within the
discretion of the Board of Directors and will depend upon New Gaylord's future
earnings, financial condition, capital requirements, and other factors,
including any limitations under then-existing credit facilities. Pursuant to the
Restructuring, all of Old Gaylord's long-term debt, including bank indebtedness,
will be assumed by New Gaylord. See "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION, AND
THE MERGER -- New Gaylord Credit Facility." New Gaylord believes that any
contractual restrictions on the payment of dividends required by its lenders
will not materially limit New Gaylord's ability to pay currently anticipated
cash dividends.
 
     Old Gaylord has historically paid regular quarterly cash dividends. In the
first and second quarters of 1995, Old Gaylord paid a dividend of $.073 per
share with respect to the outstanding Old Gaylord Common Stock. For the third
and fourth quarters of 1995, Old Gaylord paid a $.076 per share dividend with
respect to its outstanding Old Gaylord Common Stock. Old Gaylord paid a dividend
of $.086 per share of outstanding Old Gaylord Common Stock for the first and
second quarters of 1996, $.09 per share for the third quarter of 1996, and $.10
per share for the fourth quarter of 1996 and the first and second quarters of
1997. The foregoing cash dividend amounts for 1995 and for the first two
quarters of 1996 have been adjusted to reflect 5% stock dividends paid in June
1995 and June 1996.

              THE RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION, AND THE MERGER
 
     This section of the Information Statement describes certain aspects of the
Recapitalization, the Restructuring, the Distribution, and the Merger. This
description does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by
reference to the agreements (including the Merger Agreement and the form of
Distribution Agreement) which are attached as Annexes to the Proxy
Statement/Prospectus.
 
REASONS FOR THE TRANSACTIONS
 
     For information concerning the background and reasons for the Transactions,
see "THE MERGER -- Background of the Merger," "-- The Company's Reasons for the
Merger; Recommendation of its Board of Directors," and "THE COMPANY DISTRIBUTION
AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS -- General" in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus. As
stated therein, the Old Gaylord Board of Directors believes that the
Transactions, taken together, will permit the Old Gaylord stockholders to
continue to be involved in the New Gaylord Business while also providing them
with the opportunity to participate in the growth of the Cable Networks Business
as shareholders of Westinghouse. The structure of the Transactions was designed
to enable (i) Old Gaylord to transfer the Cable Networks Business to
Westinghouse on a tax-free basis, and (ii) Old Gaylord's stockholders to receive
the proceeds of such transfer on a tax-free basis while addressing
Westinghouse's objective of effecting a transaction that would result in stock
being issued directly to Old Gaylord's stockholders.
 
THE RECAPITALIZATION
 
     Prior to the Distribution, New Gaylord will effect the Recapitalization
pursuant to which New Gaylord will amend and restate its Certificate of
Incorporation to, among other things, (i) authorize one class of common stock of
New Gaylord, (ii) increase the currently authorized number of shares of common
stock of New Gaylord to 150,000,000 shares of New Gaylord Common Stock, (iii)
convert the 1,000 shares of New Gaylord common stock, $100.00 par value,
currently outstanding into that number of shares of New Gaylord Common Stock
equal to one-third the total number of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock
outstanding immediately prior to the Record Date, and (iv) authorize 100,000,000
shares of the Preferred Stock. See "DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK." Based on the
number of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock outstanding on July 15, 1997 the
1,000 shares of New Gaylord common stock currently outstanding would be
converted into 32,425,230 shares of New Gaylord Common Stock, all of which will
be distributed to Old Gaylord's stockholders in the Distribution.
 
THE RESTRUCTURING
 
     Prior to the Distribution, Old Gaylord will effect a series of mergers,
asset and stock transfers, and liability assumptions among itself and its
subsidiaries. The purpose and effect of the Restructuring is to separate the New
Gaylord Business, which is not being acquired by Westinghouse in the Merger,
from the Cable Networks Business. In connection with the Restructuring, New
Gaylord will, or will cause one of its subsidiaries to, assume all liabilities
of Old Gaylord and its subsidiaries, including all of Old Gaylord's long-term
debt, other than certain liabilities to the extent that they arise out of the
Cable Networks Business, which Old Gaylord will, or will cause one of its
subsidiaries to, retain or assume.
 
     Following the Restructuring, the assets transferred to or retained by Old
Gaylord or one of its subsidiaries and to be acquired by Westinghouse in the
Merger will consist principally of all of the assets that are used, or are being
held for use, in the Cable Networks Business (excluding certain specified
assets), including, but not limited to: (i) TNN and CMT; (ii) all of Old
Gaylord's contractual rights and obligations under the programming contracts for
programs (a) produced for and originally aired on TNN and/or CMT, or (b)
licensed from a third party for exhibition on TNN or CMT; (iii) all of Old
Gaylord's right, title, and interest in and to the program inventory in its
inventory tape library that was produced for and originally aired on TNN and/or
CMT; and (iv) all of Old Gaylord's right, title, and interest in and to certain
trademarks and other registered intellectual property relating primarily to the
Cable Networks Business. The Distribution Agreement provides that certain assets
that are or may be used or held for use in the Cable Networks Business prior to
the closing date of the Merger (the "Merger Closing Date") will be transferred
to or retained by New Gaylord, including, but not limited to: (i) all prepaid
insurance amounts; (ii) Old Gaylord's indirect ownership interest in the
Wildhorse Saloon and related entities; (iii) certain specified assets related to
CMT International and Z Music; (iv) the cash surrender value of all
 
                                       10

<PAGE>   14
 
life insurance policies owned by Old Gaylord or any of its subsidiaries; (v) the
Opryland Productions Duplicating Services service mark; (vi) all real property
and related improvements (excluding certain properties listed in the
Distribution Agreement) owned by, used by, or in any way related to the Cable
Networks Business; (vii) certain shared computer software; and (viii) one Astra
jet aircraft.
 
THE DISTRIBUTION
 
     Upon completion of the Restructuring and on the day prior to the effective
time of the Merger, Old Gaylord will effect the Distribution by distributing pro
rata to each holder of record of Old Gaylord Common Stock as of the Record Date
certificates representing that number of shares of New Gaylord Common Stock
equal to one-third the number of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock held by such
holder. Cash will be distributed in lieu of any fractional shares of New Gaylord
Common Stock. See "-- Manner of Effecting the Distribution."
 
     The Board of Directors of Old Gaylord has formally declared the
Distribution and authorized Old Gaylord to effect the Distribution on the day
prior to the effective time of the Merger subject to the satisfaction or waiver
of all the conditions to the consummation of the Merger, other than the
consummation of the Distribution. The Distribution will occur only if, and at
such time as, such conditions are satisfied and the Merger is about to occur.
See " -- Conditions."
 
MANNER OF EFFECTING THE DISTRIBUTION
 
     Old Gaylord will effect the Distribution by delivering share certificates
for New Gaylord Common Stock to SunTrust Bank, Atlanta as the distribution agent
(the "Distribution Agent"), for delivery on a pro rata basis to the holders of
Old Gaylord Common Stock as of the close of business on the Record Date without
further action by such holders. It is expected that the Distribution Agent will
begin mailing share certificates representing the New Gaylord Common Stock as
soon as practicable after the Distribution. The Distribution will be deemed
effective upon notification by Old Gaylord to the Distribution Agent that the
Distribution has been declared and that the Distribution Agent is authorized to
proceed with the distribution of New Gaylord Common Stock. All shares of New
Gaylord Common Stock to be distributed in the Distribution will be fully paid,
nonassessable, and free of preemptive rights. See "DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL
STOCK."
 
     No fractional shares of New Gaylord Common Stock will be distributed in the
Distribution. Old Gaylord stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to
receive fractional shares of New Gaylord Common Stock in the Distribution will
receive a number of shares of New Gaylord Common Stock equal to the next lower
number of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock from the number of shares actually
held by such holder which is evenly divisible by three. All fractional shares of
New Gaylord Common Stock that otherwise would have been distributed to such
holders of Old Gaylord Common Stock will be aggregated and sold in the open
market as soon as practicable after the Time of Distribution and the holders
otherwise entitled to such fractional shares will receive their pro rata share
of the proceeds of such sale in lieu of such fractional shares.
 
     No holder of Old Gaylord Common Stock will be required to pay any cash or
any other consideration for the shares of New Gaylord Common Stock to be
received in the Distribution or to surrender or exchange shares of Old Gaylord
Common Stock in order to receive shares of New Gaylord Common Stock.
 
     THE DISTRIBUTION AGENT WILL SEND YOU YOUR NEW GAYLORD STOCK CERTIFICATES
FOLLOWING CONSUMMATION OF THE DISTRIBUTION.
 
CONDITIONS
 
     The obligation of Old Gaylord to consummate the Distribution is subject to
the fulfillment or waiver of each of the following conditions: (i) the
Recapitalization shall have been consummated in accordance with the terms of the
Distribution Agreement in all material respects; (ii) the Tax Disaffiliation
Agreement shall have been executed and delivered by each of Old Gaylord, New
Gaylord, and Westinghouse; (iii) the Restructuring shall have been consummated
in accordance with the terms of the Distribution Agreement in all material
respects; (iv) each condition to the closing of the Merger set forth in the
Merger Agreement, including, but not limited to, the receipt of the Tax Rulings
and the execution and delivery of the Post-Closing Covenants Agreement by each
of Westinghouse, Old Gaylord, New Gaylord, and certain of New Gaylord's
subsidiaries other than (a) the condition to each party's obligations set forth
therein as to the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the
Distribution Agreement and (b) the condition to Westinghouse's obligation set
forth therein as to the satisfaction
 
                                       11

<PAGE>   15
 
of conditions contained in the Distribution Agreement, shall have been satisfied
or waived by the party for whose benefit such provision exists; and (v) the
Board of Directors of Old Gaylord shall be reasonably satisfied that, after
giving effect to the Restructuring, (a) Old Gaylord will not be insolvent and
will not have unreasonably small capital with which to engage in its businesses
and (b) Old Gaylord's surplus will be sufficient to permit the Distribution,
without violation of Section 170 of the General Corporation Law of the State of
Delaware. See "CERTAIN U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES." See also "THE
COMPANY DISTRIBUTION AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS -- Conditions to Consummation of
the Distribution," "THE MERGER AGREEMENT -- Conditions to Each Party's
Obligation to Effect the Merger," "-- Conditions to Obligations of Westinghouse
and Sub," "-- Conditions to Obligations of the Company" in the Proxy
Statement/Prospectus.
 
THE MERGER
 
     At the effective time of the Merger, Sub will be merged with and into Old
Gaylord, with Old Gaylord continuing as the surviving corporation and a wholly
owned subsidiary of Westinghouse. The Per Share Merger Consideration to be
received by Old Gaylord's stockholders in the Merger will be equal to (i) the
quotient of (x) $1.55 billion divided by (y) the number of shares of Old Gaylord
Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of
the Merger, divided by (ii) the average of the daily closing prices per share of
Westinghouse Common Stock as reported on the NYSE Composite Transactions List
for the 15 consecutive full NYSE trading days immediately preceding the third
full NYSE trading day prior to the effective time of the Merger; provided, that
Westinghouse will not be required to issue more than 110 million shares of
Westinghouse Common Stock in the Merger (or 88 million shares in the unlikely
event that Westinghouse consummates the Westinghouse Distribution prior to the
effective time of the Merger). If the issuance of 110 million shares (or 88
million shares, as the case may be) of Westinghouse Common Stock would result in
Old Gaylord's stockholders receiving shares with an aggregate value of less than
$1.55 billion (calculated in accordance with the Merger Agreement as described
above), then Old Gaylord would have the right to terminate the Merger Agreement,
subject to Westinghouse's right to issue additional shares. Based on the average
of the daily closing prices per share of Westinghouse Common Stock as reported
on the NYSE Composite Transactions List for the 15-day trading period ended July
15, 1997, and on the number of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock outstanding on
that date, the Per Share Merger Consideration would have been 0.673 shares of
Westinghouse Common Stock. The actual Per Share Merger Consideration at the
effective time of the Merger may be greater or less than the above number.
 
     Old Gaylord and Westinghouse currently anticipate that the Merger will be
consummated prior to the Westinghouse Distribution. In such event, stockholders
of Old Gaylord who become shareholders of Westinghouse in connection with the
Merger and who continue to hold their shares of Westinghouse Common Stock on the
record date for the Westinghouse Distribution will be entitled to participate in
the Westinghouse Distribution on the same basis as all other shareholders of
Westinghouse.
 
     The foregoing is a brief summary of certain terms of the Merger. A more
complete description of the Merger and the Merger Agreement may be found in the
Proxy Statement/Prospectus.

NEW GAYLORD CREDIT FACILITY
 
     Pursuant to the Restructuring, New Gaylord will assume all of Old Gaylord's
long-term indebtedness, which, as of June 30, 1997, aggregated approximately
$354 million. In that regard, New Gaylord will assume all of Old Gaylord's
obligations under a revolving credit facility entered into by Old Gaylord in
August 1997 (the "1997 Credit Facility").
 
     The lenders under the 1997 Credit Facility are a syndicate of banks with
NationsBank of Texas, N.A., acting as agent (the "Agent"). The maximum amount
that can be borrowed under the 1997 Credit Facility is $600 million. The final
maturity of the 1997 Credit Facility is August 2002. The 1997 Credit Facility is
unsecured and guaranteed by certain New Gaylord subsidiaries.
 
     Amounts outstanding under the 1997 Credit Facility bear interest at a rate,
at Old Gaylord's (and after the Restructuring and the Distribution, New
Gaylord's) option, equal to either (i) the higher of the Agent's prime rate or
the federal funds rate plus  1/2%, or (ii) LIBOR plus a margin ranging from .40%
to 1% depending on New Gaylord's ratio of debt to capitalization or debt
ratings. In addition, New Gaylord will be required to pay a commitment fee
ranging between .125% and .25% per year, also depending on the ratio of debt to
capitalization or debt ratings, on the average unused portion of the 1997 Credit
Facility and an annual administrative fee to the Agent.
 
     The 1997 Credit Facility will require New Gaylord to maintain certain
financial ratios and minimum stockholders' equity levels and will be subject to
limitations on, among other things, mergers and sales of assets, additional
indebtedness, dividends and stock repurchases, liens, and transactions with
affiliates.
 
EXPENSES
 
     Regardless of whether the Distribution and the Merger are consummated, all
fees, costs, and expenses incurred in connection with the Transactions will be
paid by the party incurring such fees, costs, and expenses, except that each of

and expenses incurred in connection with filing, printing, and mailing of the
Form S-4, the Registration Statement, and the Proxy Statement/Prospectus, and
(ii) all filing fees incurred under the Hart Scott Rodino Antitrust Improvements
Act of 1976, as amended, in connection with the Merger.

                            BUSINESS OF NEW GAYLORD
 
     The following description of the business of New Gaylord gives effect to
the Transactions.
 
INTRODUCTION AND HISTORY
 
     New Gaylord is a diversified entertainment company emphasizing family
values and its country music roots, operating principally in three industry
segments: (i) hospitality and attractions; (ii) broadcasting and music; and
(iii) cable networks. New Gaylord's predecessor traces its origins to a
newspaper publishing business founded in 1903 in the Oklahoma Territory by a
group including the Gaylord and Dickinson families. In 1928, New Gaylord's
predecessor entered the radio broadcasting business and, in 1949, expanded its
broadcasting interests to include television stations. New Gaylord currently
owns a television station that is affiliated with the CBS television network and
three radio stations. See "-- Broadcasting and Music."
 
     In 1983, New Gaylord's predecessor acquired Opryland USA, an interrelated
group of businesses tracing their origins to the Grand Ole Opry music radio show
created in 1925, which has become the cornerstone of the company's hospitality
and attractions businesses. Opryland USA has developed an entertainment and
convention/resort complex in Nashville, Tennessee, that is anchored by the Opry
House (the current home of the Grand Ole Opry), the Opryland Hotel, which is one
of the nation's largest convention/resort hotels, and the Opryland theme park.
 
     Also in 1983, Opryland USA entered the cable networks business by launching
TNN, a cable network with a national audience featuring country lifestyles,
entertainment, and sports, and, in 1991, acquired a 67% interest in CMT, a cable
network with a 24-hour country music video format. Since TNN's formation and
CMT's acquisition, TNN and CMT have been marketed by Westinghouse through
certain of Westinghouse's divisions and subsidiaries. An affiliate of
Westinghouse also owns the remaining 33% interest in CMT. Both TNN and the U.S.
and Canadian operations of CMT will be acquired by Westinghouse in the Merger.
The first of the CMT International cable networks was launched in Europe in
1992. CMT International, which programs primarily country music videos, was
later expanded into Asia, the South Pacific, and Latin America. In 1994, New
Gaylord's predecessor acquired an option to purchase 95% of the outstanding
common stock of Z Music, a cable network currently featuring primarily
contemporary Christian music videos. New Gaylord currently manages the
operations of Z Music. In January 1997, New Gaylord's predecessor acquired the
assets of Word, a record and music publishing company featuring primarily
contemporary Christian music.
 
HOSPITALITY AND ATTRACTIONS
 
     New Gaylord's hospitality and attractions operations consist primarily of
an interrelated group of businesses including the Grand Ole Opry, the Opryland
Hotel, the Opryland theme park, the Wildhorse Saloon, the Ryman Auditorium, the
General Jackson (an entertainment showboat), and other related businesses.
 
  Convention/Resort Hotel Operations
 
     The Opryland Hotel.  The Opryland Hotel, situated on approximately 120
acres in the Opryland complex, is the seventh largest hotel in the United States
in terms of number of guest rooms and has more exhibit space per room than any
other convention hotel in the world. The Opryland Hotel attracts convention
business, which accounted for approximately 78% of the hotel's revenues in each
of 1996, 1995, and 1994, from major trade associations and corporations. It also
serves as a destination resort for vacationers seeking accommodations in close
proximity to the Opryland theme park and the Grand Ole Opry as well as to other
attractions in the Nashville area. New Gaylord believes that the ambience
created at the Opryland Hotel by combining a state of the art convention
facility, live musical entertainment, and old-fashioned Southern hospitality and
charm are factors that differentiate it from other convention/resort hotels.

for each of the five years in the period ended December 31, 1996.

</TABLE>

 
     To serve conventions, the Opryland Hotel has 2,883 guest rooms, four
ballrooms with approximately 123,900 square feet, 85 banquet/meeting rooms, and
total dedicated exhibition space of approximately 289,000 square feet. In
addition to extensive convention facilities, the Opryland Hotel features the
Delta, a 4.5 acre atrium containing a New Orleans street scene with shops; a 1.5
acre garden conservatory; a 1.5 acre water-oriented interior space called the
Cascades; six restaurants; a food court featuring a variety of cuisines; three
swimming pools; and twenty-nine retail shops. In the Delta, hotel guests and
visitors can take boat rides on the Delta's indoor river. Live entertainment is
featured in the Cascades and in the hotel's restaurants and lounges, and special
productions for conventions are often staged in the hotel or on the General
Jackson showboat. Springhouse Golf Club, New Gaylord's 18-hole championship golf
course, attracts conventions requiring the availability of golf and makes the
hotel more attractive to vacationers. The Springhouse Golf Club also hosts an
annual Senior PGA Tour event, the BellSouth Senior Classic at Opryland, which is
televised on NBC.
 
     The Opryland Hotel directs its convention marketing efforts primarily to
major trade, industry, and professional associations and corporations. New
Gaylord believes that the primary factors in successfully marketing the Opryland
Hotel to meeting planners have been the reputation of the Opryland Hotel's
services and facilities; the Opryland Hotel's ability to offer comprehensive
convention services at a single facility; the quality and variety of
entertainment and activities available at the hotel and in the Opryland complex
generally; and the central location of Nashville within the United States. The
Opryland Hotel typically enters into contracts for conventions several years in
advance. To date, Opryland Hotel has experienced a minimal number of
cancellations. Conventions that cancel are contractually required to pay certain
penalties and face the possible loss of future convention space at the hotel. As
of April 30, 1997, convention bookings for the balance of 1997 and for 1998 were
for approximately 578,000 and 676,000 guest room nights, respectively,
representing 82% and 64%, respectively, of the available guest room nights for
such periods.
 
     New Gaylord also markets the Opryland Hotel as a destination resort through
national and local advertising and a variety of promotional activities. As part
of its marketing activities, New Gaylord advertises promotional "packages" on
TNN and CMT and through other media. Such promotions include a "Country Winter
Celebration," "Spring into Summer," the International Country Music Fan Fair
Celebration in June of each year, and "A Country Christmas," which runs each
year from early November through Christmas Day. The Country Christmas program
has contributed to the hotel's high occupancy rate during the month of December
(approximately 84%, 90%, and 91% of available guest room nights during December
1996, 1995, and 1994, respectively), traditionally a slow period for the hotel
industry. Following the Merger, New Gaylord will continue to have access to
promotional spots on TNN and CMT, consistent with past practices, allowing New
Gaylord to promote the Opryland Hotel and other properties on these cable
networks for a period of five years. See "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION,
AND THE MERGER -- Relationships with Old Gaylord and Westinghouse Following the
Distribution and Merger."
 
     The General Jackson.  The General Jackson, a 300-foot, four-deck paddle
wheel showboat, operates on the Cumberland River, which flows past the Opryland
complex. Its Victorian Theatre can seat 620 people for banquets and 1,000 people
for theater-style presentations. The showboat stages Broadway-style shows and
other theatrical productions. It is one of many sources of entertainment that
New Gaylord makes available to conventions held at the Opryland Hotel and
contributes to New Gaylord's revenues from convention participants. During the
day it serves primarily tourists visiting the Opryland complex and the Nashville
area.

  Opryland Theme Park
 
     The Opryland theme park is a musical show park that emphasizes live
productions of country, rock 'n' roll, gospel, bluegrass, and Broadway show
tunes. The 218-acre park consists of approximately 80 acres of developed in-park
entertainment area, 30 acres of support facilities, 70 acres of parking lot, and
38 acres of contiguous undeveloped land. The park has 11 theaters, bandstands,
and other facilities where it can stage musical productions. These facilities,
including a 4,000-seat amphitheater and an additional 2,200-seat theater, have a
total seating capacity of approximately 12,000. The park can simultaneously
stage up to 11 musical shows and, during the summer months, presents up to 50
shows each day. The amphitheater is also used regularly for television
productions and other events. "Nashville On Stage," a series of live concerts,
is slated for its fourth year of operation during the 1997 season. From May to
August 1997, top-name music stars, including The Oak Ridge Boys, Billy Ray
Cyrus, The Temptations, and Sandi Patty are scheduled to perform at the park.
 
     New Gaylord believes that its attention to, and emphasis on, live
entertainment productions are the principal factors that differentiate the
Opryland theme park from other amusement and theme parks. In addition to
offering shows and other live entertainment, the park operates 21 rides as well
as shops, restaurants, children's play areas, and other facilities. New Gaylord
makes regular capital improvements in the form of new rides and attractions. The
park also features the Grand Ole Opry Museum and other museums containing
memorabilia collections of country music legends Roy Acuff and Minnie Pearl.
These museums are located in the Opry Plaza area of the park, which remains open
year round. The park has a broadcast studio from which New Gaylord's radio
station WSM-FM is broadcast. With certain exceptions, such as "Nashville on
Stage" concerts, visitors to the park purchase a single ticket for a full day's
admission to all of the park's entertainment and attractions.
 
     The park operates on weekends in the spring and the autumn and seven days a
week in the summer. In recent years, the "Christmas in the Park" program during
November and December has provided an additional attraction for the Country
Christmas program at the Opryland Hotel, extending the park's operating season.
 
     The following table sets forth certain information concerning the park.
"Revenues per visitor" include revenues from tickets, food and beverage sales,
and sales of retail merchandise. "Total attendance" and "Revenues per visitor"
include paying and non-paying visitors. "Average ticket price" includes paying
visitors only. The data set forth for 1993 through 1996 below includes results
of the "Christmas in the Park" program during which the revenues per visitor and
ticket prices were significantly less than during the park's other operating
periods.

  Country Music Entertainment
 
     The Grand Ole Opry.  The Grand Ole Opry, the most widely known platform for
country music in the world, is a live country music show with performances every
Friday and Saturday night and frequent summer matinees. The Opry House, home of
the Grand Ole Opry, is located in the Opryland complex. The show is radio
broadcast by WSM-AM every Friday and Saturday night from the Opry House, and TNN
telecasts a 30-minute live segment every Saturday night together with a
30-minute live segment of the warm-up preceding the show. Following the Merger,
the 30-minute live segment of the Grand Ole Opry will continue to be shown on
TNN for five years. See "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION, AND THE
MERGER -- Relationships with Old Gaylord and Westinghouse Following the
Distribution and Merger." The show has been radio broadcast since 1925 on
WSM-AM, making it the longest running live radio program in the world. During
the summer months, the Grand Ole Opry, which requires the purchase of a separate
admission ticket, is a complementary attraction to the live shows in the
Opryland theme park.

     The Grand Ole Opry currently has 72 performing members who are stars or
other notables in the country music field. Members perform at the Grand Ole Opry
and there are no financial inducements attached to membership in the Grand Ole
Opry other than the prestige associated with membership. In addition, the Grand
Ole Opry presents performances by many other country music artists. The
following is a list of the current members of the Grand Ole Opry (including year
of membership).

     The Opry House, which was built in 1974 to replace the Ryman Auditorium as
the home of the Grand Ole Opry, contains a 45,000 square foot auditorium with
4,400 seats, a television production center that includes a 300-seat studio as
well as lighting, audio, and video control rooms, and set design and scenery
shops. The Opry House is used by New Gaylord for the production of television
and other programming and for third parties such as national television networks
and the Public Broadcasting System. The Opry House is also rented for concerts,
theatrical productions, and special events and is used by the Opryland Hotel for
convention entertainment and events. Following the Merger, the Cable Networks
Business will have continued access to and use of the Opry House and certain
other properties owned by New Gaylord. See "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION,
AND THE MERGER -- Relationships with Old Gaylord and Westinghouse Following the
Distribution and the Merger."
 
     The Wildhorse Saloon.  Since 1994, New Gaylord has operated the Wildhorse
Saloon, a country music dance club on historic Second Avenue in downtown
Nashville. The three-story, 56,000 square-foot facility includes a 3,000 square
foot dance floor, a 190-seat restaurant and banquet facility, and a 15 x 22 foot
television screen featuring, among other things, country music videos. The club
also has a broadcast-ready stage and facilities to house mobile production units
from which broadcasts of live concerts may be distributed nationwide. New
Gaylord owns 51% of a joint venture with Levy Restaurants Group ("Levy"), which
was established to expand the Wildhorse Saloon concept to major, high-profile
tourism cities around the country. Levy will provide
 
                                       18

<PAGE>   22
 
restaurant management expertise and oversee day-to-day operations, site
selections, and lease negotiations for the restaurants. Cities currently under
consideration for expansion of the Wildhorse Saloon concept include Atlanta,
Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Orlando, and Washington, D.C. Following the
Merger, the Wildhorse Saloon will receive continued exposure and promotion on
TNN for a period of five years, including the airing of four shows annually on
TNN to originate from the Wildhorse Saloon. See "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE
DISTRIBUTION, AND THE MERGER -- Relationships with Old Gaylord and Westinghouse
Following the Distribution and the Merger."
 
     Ryman Auditorium.  In 1994, New Gaylord re-opened the renovated Ryman
Auditorium, the former home of the Grand Ole Opry, for concerts and musical
productions, including musicals produced by New Gaylord such as "Always Patsy
Cline" and the currently-running "Lost Highway," a tribute to the life and music
of Hank Williams. The Ryman Auditorium, built in 1892, is listed on the National
Register of Historic Places and seats approximately 2,100. Recent performers at
the Ryman Auditorium include James Brown, Bob Dylan, Amy Grant, Lyle Lovett,
Ricky Skaggs, and Bruce Springsteen.
 
BROADCASTING AND MUSIC
 
  Television Stations
 
     New Gaylord and its predecessor have been engaged in television
broadcasting since 1949, at one time owning as many as seven television
stations. As of December 31, 1996, New Gaylord owned and operated two television
stations: KTVT (Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas), and KSTW (Tacoma-Seattle,
Washington), which have been affiliated with the CBS television network since
1995. In June 1997, New Gaylord consummated the sale of KSTW for $160 million in
cash.
 
     As of November 1996, based on the Nielsen Station Index produced by the
A.C. Nielsen Company ("Nielsen"), KTVT, broadcasting on channel 11, was the
fourth ranked station, out of 13 commercial stations, in the Dallas-Fort Worth
Designated Market Area ("DMA"), which is an exclusive geographic area consisting
of all counties in which the local stations receive a preponderance of total
viewing hours. The Dallas-Fort Worth DMA, consisting of 1.85 million television
households, is the eighth largest DMA in the United States. KTVT's broadcast
license issued by the Federal Communications Commission (the "FCC") expires in
August 1998, but is expected to be renewed. See "-- Regulation and Legislation."
 
     KTVT has historically generated revenues from local, regional, and national
spot advertising. The majority of local, regional, and national spot advertising
contracts are short-term, generally running for only a few weeks. Advertising
rates charged by a television station are based primarily upon the demographics
and number of television households in the area served by the station, as well
as the station's ability to attract audiences as reflected in surveys made by
Nielsen. DMA data, which is published by Nielsen, is a significant factor in
determining television advertising rates. Rates are highest during the most
desirable viewing hours (generally between 5:00 p.m. and midnight). The rates
for local and national advertising are determined by KTVT. Local advertising
spots are sold by KTVT's sales personnel and national advertising spots are sold
by HRP, Inc., the national advertising sales agent for KTVT. Pursuant to an
affiliation agreement with CBS, KTVT receives cash compensation and network
programming from CBS (which represents the majority of the programming for
KTVT). In turn, the affiliation agreement entitles CBS to a portion of the
advertising spots on KTVT. Accordingly, KTVT now has fewer advertising spots to
sell than it did prior to July 1995, when it was an independent television
station.
 
  Radio Stations
 
     WSM-AM and WSM-FM.  New Gaylord's radio stations WSM-AM and WSM-FM
commenced broadcasting in 1925 and 1967, respectively. New Gaylord's involvement
with country music dates back to the creation of the Grand Ole Opry, which has
been broadcast live on WSM-AM since 1925.
 
     WSM-AM and WSM-FM are each broadcast from the Opryland complex and have
country music formats. WSM-AM went on the air in 1925 and is one of the nation's
25 "clear channel" stations, meaning that no other station in a 750-mile radius
uses the same frequency for nighttime broadcasts. As a result, the station's
signal,
 
                                       19

<PAGE>   23
 
transmitted by a 50,000 watt transmitter, can be heard at night in much of the
United States and parts of Canada. New Gaylord has radio broadcast studios in
the Opryland Hotel, at the Opryland theme park, and at the Wildhorse Saloon.
 
     WWTN-FM.  In 1995, New Gaylord acquired the assets of radio station
WWTN-FM, operated out of Nashville, Tennessee, which has a news/talk/sports
format.
 
  Music
 
     Word Entertainment.  In January 1997, New Gaylord's predecessor acquired
the assets of Word for $120 million, which included approximately $40 million of
working capital. Word is one of the largest contemporary Christian music
companies in the world, with nine recording labels featuring artists such as Amy
Grant, Shirley Caesar, Sandi Patty, and Point of Grace. Other significant Word
operations include print and hymnal music sales, distribution of music and video
products owned by third parties, and music publishing, including a 40,000 song
catalog. Word produces a wide variety of traditional and contemporary Christian
inspirational music, including adult contemporary, pop, country, rock, gospel,
praise and worship, rap, metal, and rhythm and blues, with an emphasis on
positive, inspirational, and family values themes. In addition, Word produces
master recordings of classical music and is a leading supplier of value-priced
Christmas music to mass market, convenience, and specialty stores.
 
     In April 1997, New Gaylord announced the acquisition of Blanton/Harrell
Entertainment, an international management company which, together with Word and
Z Music, will anchor New Gaylord's family values entertainment offerings.
Blanton/Harrell Entertainment manages primarily Christian music artists,
including Word artist Amy Grant, the top-selling contemporary Christian music
artist of all time, Michael W. Smith, and Gary Chapman.
 
     Opryland Music Group.  Opryland Music Group ("OMG") is primarily engaged in
the music publishing business and owns one of the world's largest catalogs of
copyrighted country music songs. The OMG catalog also includes popular music,
with songs of legendary writers such as Hank Williams, Pee Wee King, Roy
Orbison, and Don and Phil Everly. Songs in the OMG catalog have accumulated more
country "Song of the Year" awards from the major performing rights organizations
than the songs of any other publisher, and the OMG catalog contains more than 40
songs that have been publicly performed over a million times. Standards such as
"Oh, Pretty Woman," "Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain," and "When Will I Be Loved"
are included in the roster of OMG songs. In addition to commercially recorded
music, OMG issues licenses for the use of its songs in films, plays, print,
commercials, videos, cable, and television. Through various subsidiaries and
sub-publishers, OMG collects royalties on licenses granted in a number of
foreign countries in addition to its U.S.-based business.
 
CABLE NETWORKS
 
     CMT International.  In October 1992, CMT launched CMT International through
a new cable network, CMT Europe. CMT International expanded its reach to include
portions of Asia and the South Pacific, including Australia and New Zealand,
with the launch of a second cable network in 1994. In 1995, CMT International
launched its third cable network in Latin America, allowing CMT's satellite
signals to potentially reach an estimated 90% of the world's homes with
televisions. The programming for CMT International currently consists primarily
of country music videos. At December 31, 1996, CMT International had 6.8 million
subscribers.
 
     Z Music.  In 1994, New Gaylord's predecessor entered into an agreement to
manage Z Music in exchange for an option to purchase 95% of Z Music's
outstanding capital stock. Z Music, a cable network currently featuring
primarily contemporary Christian music videos, is currently available in
approximately 19 million U.S. broadcast and cable homes. Z Music's contemporary
Christian programming covers a spectrum of musical styles, ranging from
inspirational, country and rock videos to spiritual music videos with more overt
Christian messages. The Z Music network also programs music news and artists'
interviews, featuring artists with strong convictions and a passion for their
message. Z Music has recently expanded its programming to include positive,
uplifting music by artists that are not necessarily categorized as Christian. Z
Music also produces and syndicates radio news features, "Radio Z Buzz," that
reach audiences in more than 100 markets across the U.S. New Gaylord anticipates
that it will exercise its option to purchase Z Music in 1997.

ADDITIONAL INTERESTS
 
     Bass Pro Shops.  In 1993, New Gaylord's predecessor purchased a minority
interest in a partnership that owns and operates Bass Pro Shops, a leading
retailer of premium outdoor sporting goods and fishing tackle. Bass Pro Shops
serves its customers through an extensive mail order catalog operation, a
185,000-square-foot retail center in Springfield, Missouri, and an additional
retail store in Atlanta, Georgia. Bass Pro Shops currently has four new stores
under construction, including one in Nashville adjacent to the Opryland Hotel.
The partnership also owns a two-thirds interest in Tracker Marine, a
manufacturer of fiberglass and aluminum fishing boats, which are sold through
the Bass Pro Shops catalogs and by means of wholesale distribution to authorized
dealers. New Gaylord's properties are featured in the approximately 40 million
Bass Pro Shops catalogs published annually. New Gaylord also provides hotel
consulting services to Bass Pro Shops' Big Cedar Lodge, a 1,250 acre resort
development on Table Rock Lake located in the Ozark Mountains in southern
Missouri.
 
     Texas Rangers Baseball Club.  New Gaylord owns a 10% interest in B/R
Rangers Associates, Ltd., a limited partnership that owns the Texas Rangers
major league baseball club, the American League West Division Champions in 1996.
 
COMPETITION
 
  Hospitality and Attractions
 
     New Gaylord's hospitality and attractions operations compete with all other
forms of entertainment, lodging, and recreational activities. In addition to the
competitive factors outlined below for each of New Gaylord's businesses within
the hospitality and attractions segment, the success of the hospitality and
attractions segment is dependent upon certain factors beyond New Gaylord's
control including economic conditions, amount of available leisure time,
transportation costs, public taste, and weather conditions.
 
     The Opryland Hotel competes with other hotels throughout the United States
and abroad, including many hotels operated by companies with greater financial,
marketing, and human resources than New Gaylord. Principal factors affecting
competition within the convention/resort hotel industry include the hotel's
reputation, quality of facilities, location and convenience of access, price,
and entertainment. The hotel business is management and marketing intensive, and
the Opryland Hotel competes with other hotels throughout the United States for
high quality management and marketing personnel. Although the Opryland Hotel has
historically enjoyed a relatively low rate of turnover among its managerial and
marketing personnel, there can be no assurance that it will continue to be able
to attract and retain high quality employees with managerial and marketing
skills. The hotel also competes with other employers for nonmanagerial employees
in the Middle Tennessee labor market, which recently has had a low level of
unemployment. The low unemployment rate makes it difficult to attract qualified
nonmanagerial employees and has been a substantial factor in the high turnover
rate among those employees.
 
     The principal competitive factors in the amusement park industry generally
include the uniqueness and perceived quality of the rides and attractions in a
particular park; its proximity to densely populated areas; the atmosphere,
cleanliness, and safety of a park; the quality of food and beverages; and
available entertainment. New Gaylord believes that its attention to, and
emphasis on, live musical productions is one of the factors that differentiates
the Opryland theme park from other amusement and theme parks. Opryland's
emphasis on live musical entertainment requires that it compete with other show
parks, concert halls, and other forums for live entertainment for musical talent
as well as creative and production personnel, who are essential to New Gaylord's
operations. In addition, the same factors affecting the hotel's ability to
recruit and retain qualified nonmanagerial employees also affect the park.
 
  Broadcasting and Music
 
     KTVT competes for advertising revenues primarily with television stations
serving the same markets, including both independent stations and
network-affiliated stations. Advertising rates of KTVT are based principally on
the size, market share, and demographic profile of its viewing audience. WSM-AM,
WSM-FM,
 
                                       21

<PAGE>   25
 
and WWTN-FM similarly compete for advertising revenues with other radio stations
in the same market area on the basis of formats, ratings, market share, and the
demographic make-up of their audiences. New Gaylord's television and radio
stations also compete with cable networks and local cable channels for both
audience share and advertising revenues and with radio, newspapers, billboards,
and magazines for advertising revenues. Other sources of present and potential
competition are prerecorded video cassettes, direct broadcast satellite
services, and multi-channel, multi-point distribution services ("MMDS" also
known as "wireless cable"). Management competence and experience, station
frequency signal coverage, network affiliation, format effectiveness of
programming, sales effort, and level of customer service are all important
factors in determining competitive position.
 
     Word competes with numerous other companies that publish and distribute
Christian inspirational music, many of which have longer operating histories and
certain of which are tax-exempt organizations. Word competes with other record
and music publishing companies, both Christian and secular, to sign top artists
and songwriters, and new talent. New Gaylord's ability to sign and re-sign
popular recording artists and successful songwriters depends on a number of
factors, including distribution and marketing capabilities, Word's management
team, and the royalty and advance arrangements offered.
 
  Cable Networks
 
     CMT International and Z Music compete for viewer acceptance with all forms
of video entertainment, including other basic cable services, premium cable
services, commercial television networks, independent television stations, and
products distributed for the home video markets, in addition to the motion
picture industry and other communications, media, and entertainment services. Z
Music is delivered to subscribers primarily by cable television systems. CMT
International is carried in many different ways depending on the technology
available in the country where it is carried. CMT International and Z Music
compete with other nationally and internationally distributed cable networks and
local broadcast television stations for available channel space on cable
television systems, with other cable networks for subscriber fees from cable
systems operators, and with all forms of advertiser-supported media for
advertising revenues. New Gaylord also competes to obtain creative talents,
properties, and market share, which are essential to the success of its cable
networks business.
 
     The principal competitive factors in obtaining viewer acceptance, on which
cable subscriber fees and advertiser support ultimately depend, are the appeal
of the networks' programming focus and the quality of their programming. Music
videos constitute substantially all of CMT International's and Z Music's
programming. These videos are currently provided to New Gaylord for promotional
purposes by record companies and may also be distributed to other programming
services as well as to other media.
 
     For a period of five years following the Merger, New Gaylord is prohibited
by the Post-Closing Covenants Agreement from owning or operating a cable network
featuring country music videos or a significant amount of musical, sports,
variety, or other entertainment features or series, the theme of which is
perceived by the viewing public as "country entertainment." New Gaylord is also
prohibited, during such five-year period, from providing, or making available
for viewing, "country entertainment" programming on a cable network or an
over-the-air broadcast television station. Notwithstanding the foregoing, New
Gaylord can own and operate CMT International in any area outside of the United
States and Canada, provided that CMT International's programming, other than
country music videos, will not primarily consist of programming featuring or
related to "country entertainment." In addition, New Gaylord is prohibited by
the Post-Closing Covenants Agreement from hiring any Cable Networks Business
employee (unless such person is no longer a Cable Networks Business employee)
for a period of one year following the Merger. For additional information, see
"THE POST-CLOSING COVENANTS AGREEMENT -- Agreement Not to Compete" in the Proxy
Statement/Prospectus.
 
REGULATION AND LEGISLATION
 
  Hospitality and Attractions
 
     The Opryland Hotel is subject to certain federal, state, and local
governmental regulations including, without limitation, health, safety, and
environmental regulations applicable to hotel and restaurant operations. New
Gaylord believes that it is in substantial compliance with such regulations. In
addition, the sale of alcoholic
 
                                       22

<PAGE>   26
 
beverages by the Opryland Hotel requires a license and is subject to regulation
by the applicable state and local authorities. The agencies involved have full
power to limit, condition, suspend, or revoke any such license, and any
disciplinary action or revocation could have an adverse effect upon the results
of the operations of New Gaylord's hospitality and attractions segment.
 
     The Opryland theme park is subject to certain federal, state, and local
governmental regulations including, without limitation, health, safety, and
environmental regulations applicable to amusement park operations, and state and
local regulations applicable to restaurant operations at the park. New Gaylord
believes that it is in substantial compliance with such regulations. The park's
rides are not subject to federal regulations although bills have been introduced
in Congress at various times proposing such regulation. The park's rides are
inspected frequently by New Gaylord's own maintenance personnel. These
inspections include safety checks as well as regular maintenance.
 
  Broadcasting and Music
 
     Radio and television broadcasting is subject to regulation under the
Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the "Communications Act"). Under the
Communications Act, the FCC, among other things, assigns frequency bands for
broadcasting; determines the frequencies, location, and signal strength of
stations; issues, renews, revokes, and modifies station licenses; regulates
equipment used by stations; and adopts and implements regulations and policies
that directly or indirectly affect the ownership, operation, and employment
practices of broadcasting stations.
 
     The FCC has adopted new rules to implement a provision of the 1996
Communications Act Amendments (the "1996 Amendments") pursuant to which licenses
issued for radio renewal applications filed on or after June 1, 1995 and for
television renewal applications filed on or after June 3, 1996, will have terms
of eight years. (The maximum periods were formerly five years and seven years,
respectively.) Television and radio broadcast licenses are renewable upon
application to the FCC and in the past usually have been renewed except in rare
cases. In a departure from past practice, the 1996 Amendments provide that
competing applications will not be accepted at the time of license renewal, and
will not be entertained at all unless the FCC first concludes that renewal of
the license would not serve the public interest. A station will be entitled to
renewal in the absence of serious violations of the Communications Act or the
FCC regulations or other violations which constitute a pattern of abuse. New
Gaylord is aware of no reason why its radio and television station licenses
should not be renewed.
 
     FCC regulations also prohibit concentrations of media ownership on both the
local and national levels. FCC regulations prohibit the common ownership or
control of most communications media serving the same market areas (i.e., (i)
television and radio ownership; (ii) television and daily newspapers; (iii)
radio and daily newspapers; and (iv) television and cable television). Pursuant
to the 1996 Amendments, however, the FCC's liberal waiver policy for joint
television and radio ownership in the top 25 markets will be expanded to include
the top 50 markets. The 1996 Amendments also increase the number of radio
stations a single entity may own in the same market area (depending on the
number of stations operating in the local radio market), and the FCC is
conducting a rulemaking to consider whether owning more than one television
station in the same market area may be permitted. The FCC has also issued a
notice of inquiry for the purpose of reevaluating the restriction on
radio/newspaper cross ownership. Pursuant to the 1996 Amendments, FCC
regulations no longer will limit the total number of television broadcast
stations held by any single entity so long as all of the stations under common
control do not attain an aggregate national audience reach exceeding 35%, up
from the prior cap of 25%, and no more than 12 stations. The 1996 Amendments
also eliminated previous limits on the total number of radio stations commonly
owned on a national basis. The FCC is in the process of amending certain of its
regulations to implement the 1996 Amendments.
 
     The Communications Act also places certain limitations on alien ownership
or control of entities holding broadcast licenses. The Restated Certificate of
Incorporation of New Gaylord (the "Restated Certificate") will contain a
provision permitting New Gaylord to redeem common stock from certain holders if
the Board of Directors deems such redemption necessary to prevent the loss or
secure the reinstatement of any of its licenses or
 
                                       23

<PAGE>   27
 
franchises. See "DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK." The 1996 Amendments have deleted
existing restrictions on communications companies having non-citizen officers
and directors.
 
     The foregoing is only a brief summary of certain provisions of the
Communications Act and FCC regulations. The Communications Act and FCC
regulations may be amended from time to time, and New Gaylord cannot predict
whether any such legislation will be enacted or whether new or amended FCC
regulations will be adopted, or the effect on New Gaylord of any such changes,
including those made by the 1996 Amendments.
 
  Cable Networks
 
     Although the operations of New Gaylord's cable networks are not directly
subject to regulation, the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition
Act of 1992 (the "1992 Act") and the regulations thereunder have required cable
networks to, in certain instances, lower charges for their programming for
certain distributors. Although the recently enacted 1996 Amendments did not have
such an effect, any future legislation or regulatory actions that increase rate
regulation or effect structural changes in New Gaylord's cable networks could
have such an effect. For example, increased rate regulation could, among other
things, affect the ability or willingness of cable system operators to establish
or retain Z Music as a basic tier cable service.
 
     CMT International's programming and uplink services are handled in the
United States. The network has no employees abroad and any contracts between the
network and cable systems are executed in the United States. The network
generally does not require a license or authorization from the British
government to conduct its business. New Gaylord's management is currently
studying the regulatory frameworks of certain other European countries and at
this time is not aware of any material regulation that would prevent it from
delivering the network into such countries. There currently exists a European
Community Directive requiring that a majority of programming delivered to
European countries be locally originated, where practicable. Representatives of
the British government have informed New Gaylord that this would not impact the
network with respect to the United Kingdom as there currently is no
locally-originated country music programming available. New Gaylord does not
expect the European Community Directive will be a material obstacle to entering
other European countries for the foreseeable future.
 
EMPLOYEES
 
     As of December 31, 1996, New Gaylord (excluding the Cable Networks
Business) had approximately 5,600 full-time and 3,050 part-time and seasonal
employees. The Opryland theme park employs approximately 1,700 additional
seasonal employees during the summer months. New Gaylord believes that its
relationship with its employees is good.
 
PROPERTIES
 
     New Gaylord owns its executive offices and corporate headquarters located
at One Gaylord Drive, Nashville, Tennessee, which consists of a four-story
office building comprising approximately 80,000 square feet. New Gaylord
believes that its present facilities for each of its business segments as
described below are generally well maintained and currently sufficient to serve
each segment's particular needs.
 
  Hospitality and Attractions
 
     New Gaylord owns approximately 800 acres of land in Nashville, Tennessee
and the improvements thereon that comprise the Opryland complex including in
excess of 100 acres of undeveloped land. The Opryland complex is comprised of
the Opryland Hotel, the Opryland theme park, the General Jackson showboat's
docking facility, the TNN/CMT production and administration facilities, the Opry
House, and WSM Radio's offices and studios. New Gaylord also owns the
Springhouse Golf Club, an 18-hole golf course situated on approximately 240
acres, and a 26-acre KOA campground, both of which are located near the Opryland
complex. In addition, New Gaylord owns the Ryman Auditorium in downtown
Nashville; the Wildhorse Saloon, a dance hall/production facility, on Company
property in downtown Nashville; and a 100,000 square foot warehouse in Old
Hickory, Tennessee.
 
                                       24

<PAGE>   28
 
  Broadcasting and Music
 
     New Gaylord owns all of KTVT's business facilities which are comprised of
an office and two studios containing an aggregate of approximately 48,000 square
feet. KTVT owns its transmitter facilities and tower. KTVT leases additional
space for sales and news offices in Dallas, Texas. In addition, New Gaylord owns
the Opryland Music Group building located on Nashville's "Music Row" and
adjacent real estate. New Gaylord leases approximately 34,000 square feet on
various floors in a Nashville office building, which space is primarily used for
Word's executive and administrative offices. These leases expire on various
dates ranging from October 1998 to June 2001. Word also leases sales office and
warehouse space in Waco, Texas; Richmond, Canada; and Milton Keynes, United
Kingdom.
 
  Cable Networks
 
     New Gaylord owns the offices and three television studios of TNN, all of
which are located within the Opryland complex and contain approximately 84,000
square feet of space. The transmitter used for satellite uplink is owned by New
Gaylord and is located at the Opryland complex. New Gaylord owns the offices of
CMT and CMT International which were added to the offices of TNN and contain
approximately 2,700 square feet of space. CMT began using a Company-owned
transmitter located on the Opryland complex during 1992. CMT International
currently leases its transmitters. Following the Merger, certain equipment and
facilities used by TNN and CMT will be leased to Westinghouse. See "THE
RESTRUCTURING, THE DISTRIBUTION, AND THE MERGER -- Relationships with Old
Gaylord and Westinghouse Following the Distribution and Merger."
 
INSURANCE AND LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
     New Gaylord maintains various insurance policies, including general
liability and property damage insurance, as well as product liability, workers'
compensation, business interruption, and other policies, which it believes
provide adequate coverage for its operations. Various subsidiaries of New
Gaylord are involved in lawsuits incidental to the ordinary course of their
businesses, such as personal injury actions by guests and employees and
complaints alleging employee discrimination. New Gaylord believes that it is
adequately insured against these claims by its existing insurance policies and
that the outcome of any pending claims or proceedings will not have a material
adverse effect upon its results of operations or financial condition.
 
     New Gaylord may have potential liability under the Comprehensive
Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended
("CERCLA" or "Superfund"), for response costs at two Superfund sites. The
liability relates to properties formerly owned by Old Gaylord. In 1991, Old
Gaylord and The Oklahoma Publishing Company ("OPUBCO"), a former subsidiary of
Old Gaylord, entered into a distribution agreement (the "OPUBCO Distribution
Agreement"), pursuant to which OPUBCO assumed such liabilities and agreed to
indemnify Old Gaylord for any losses, damages, or other liabilities incurred by
Old Gaylord in connection with such matters. Under the OPUBCO Distribution
Agreement, OPUBCO is required to maintain adequate reserves to cover potential
Superfund liabilities. In connection with the Restructuring, Old Gaylord will
assign its rights under the OPUBCO Distribution Agreement to New Gaylord, and
Old Gaylord will have a right of subrogation to New Gaylord's right to
indemnification from OPUBCO. To date, no litigation has been commenced against
New Gaylord, Old Gaylord or OPUBCO with respect to these two Superfund sites.
 
     Although statutorily liable private parties cannot contractually transfer
liability so as to render themselves no longer liable, CERCLA permits private
parties to indemnify one another against CERCLA liability pursuant to a
contract, and to enforce such a contract in an appropriate court. New Gaylord
believes that OPUBCO's indemnification will fully cover New Gaylord's Superfund
liabilities, if any, and that, based on New Gaylord's current estimates of these
liabilities, OPUBCO has sufficient financial resources to fulfill its
indemnification obligations under the OPUBCO Distribution Agreement.

                  CERTAIN U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES
 
     The following is a discussion of certain U.S. Federal income tax
consequences of the Distribution and the Restructuring. The discussion which
follows is based upon the Code, Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder, and
judicial and administrative interpretations thereof, all as in effect on the
date hereof, and is subject to any changes in these or other laws occurring
after such date, possibly with retroactive effect. The discussion below is for
general information only and does not address the effects of any state, local,
or foreign tax laws on the Distribution. The tax treatment of an Old Gaylord
stockholder may vary depending on his or her particular situation, and certain
stockholders (including insurance companies, tax-exempt organizations, financial
institutions or broker-dealers, persons who do not hold Old Gaylord Common Stock
as capital assets, individuals who received Old Gaylord Common Stock pursuant to
the exercise of employee stock options or otherwise as compensation, and
non-U.S. persons) may be subject to special rules not discussed below.
 
     EACH STOCKHOLDER OF OLD GAYLORD IS URGED TO CONSULT SUCH STOCKHOLDER'S OWN
TAX ADVISOR AS TO THE PARTICULAR TAX CONSEQUENCES OF THE DISTRIBUTION, INCLUDING
THE APPLICABILITY AND EFFECT OF ANY STATE, LOCAL, OR FOREIGN LAWS AND OF CHANGES
IN APPLICABLE TAX LAWS.
 
     Consummation of the Distribution and the Merger is conditioned upon the
receipt of the Tax Rulings issued by the IRS to the effect that (i) the
Distribution will qualify as a transaction described in Section 355(a) of the
Code and the transfer of assets and liabilities to New Gaylord immediately
preceding the Distribution will qualify as a transaction described in Section
351 of the Code and/or a "reorganization" under Section 368(a)(1)(D) of the Code
and (ii) the Merger will qualify as a "reorganization" under Section
368(a)(1)(B) of the Code. In addition, Old Gaylord and Westinghouse have
requested rulings from the IRS to the effect that certain aspects of the
Restructuring will not be taxable to New Gaylord or any of its subsidiaries, and
consummation of the Distribution and the Merger is conditioned upon either (i)
the receipt of such rulings or (ii) the receipt by Old Gaylord and Westinghouse
of opinions of their respective counsel to the same effect.
 
     The Tax Rulings and the opinions of counsel (if any) will be based on
current law, and will be based on certain representations as to factual matters
made by, among others, Old Gaylord, New Gaylord and Westinghouse. Such
representations, if incorrect in certain material respects, could jeopardize the
conclusions reached in the Tax Rulings or the opinions. None of New Gaylord, Old
Gaylord, or Westinghouse is currently aware of any facts or circumstances which
would cause any such representations required to be made to the IRS or to
counsel to be untrue or incorrect in any material respect. Further, an opinion
of counsel is not binding on the IRS or the courts.
 
     Based on the rulings and opinions (if any) discussed above, the material
federal income tax consequences that will result from the Restructuring and the
Distribution are as follows:
 
          (a) No income, gain or loss will be recognized by New Gaylord or Old
     Gaylord in the Distribution or as a result of certain aspects of the
     Restructuring. As a result of certain other aspects of the Restructuring,
     however, New Gaylord or Old Gaylord will recognize income, gain, or loss.
 
          (b) An Old Gaylord stockholder will not recognize any income, gain or
     loss as a result of the receipt of New Gaylord Common Stock in the
     Distribution, except with respect to any cash received in lieu of
     fractional shares of New Gaylord Common Stock.
 
          (c) An Old Gaylord stockholder's tax basis for the New Gaylord Common
     Stock and Old Gaylord Common Stock immediately after the Distribution,
     including any fractional share interest of New Gaylord Common Stock for
     which cash is received, will equal such stockholder's tax basis in the Old
     Gaylord Common Stock immediately before the Distribution, allocated in
     proportion to the relative fair market values of New Gaylord Common Stock
     and Old Gaylord Common Stock at the time of the Distribution.
 
          (d) An Old Gaylord stockholder's holding period for the shares of New
     Gaylord Common Stock received in the Distribution, including any fractional
     share interest of New Gaylord Common Stock for which cash is received, will
     include the period during which the stockholder held Old Gaylord Common
     Stock, provided that the Old Gaylord Common Stock was held as a capital
     asset.
 
                                       26

<PAGE>   30
 
          (e) An Old Gaylord stockholder that receives cash in lieu of a
     fractional share interest of New Gaylord Common Stock pursuant to the
     Distribution will be treated as having received such cash in exchange for
     such fractional share interest and generally will recognize capital gain or
     loss on such deemed exchange in an amount equal to the difference between
     the amount of cash received and the Old Gaylord stockholder's adjusted tax
     basis in such fractional share. Such capital gain or loss generally will be
     long-term capital gain or loss if the holding period for the New Gaylord
     Common Stock or the Old Gaylord Common Stock with respect to which such
     fractional share is deemed issued exceeds one year.
 
     BECAUSE OF THE INDIVIDUAL NATURE OF TAX CONSEQUENCES, EACH OLD GAYLORD
STOCKHOLDER IS URGED TO CONSULT ITS TAX ADVISOR WITH RESPECT TO THE TAX
CONSEQUENCES TO IT OF THE DISTRIBUTION, INCLUDING THE EFFECT OF U.S. FEDERAL,
STATE AND LOCAL, AND FOREIGN AND OTHER TAX RULES, AND THE EFFECT OF POSSIBLE
CHANGES IN TAX LAWS.
 
     Unless the Merger is effected after the Westinghouse Distribution, Old
Gaylord stockholders who continue to hold Westinghouse Common Stock on the
record date for the Westinghouse Distribution will be entitled to participate in
the Westinghouse Distribution on the same basis as all other Westinghouse
shareholders. Westinghouse has applied to the IRS for rulings substantially to
the effect that no income, gain, or loss will be recognized by Westinghouse
shareholders (including former stockholders of Old Gaylord) as a result of
participating in the Westinghouse Distribution.

                    MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
                 FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
OVERVIEW
 
     New Gaylord is currently a wholly owned subsidiary of Old Gaylord. New
Gaylord operates principally in three industry segments: hospitality and
attractions; broadcasting and music; and cable networks. New Gaylord sold its
cable television systems segment (the "Systems") on September 29, 1995. Prior to
the sale, the Systems were accounted for as discontinued operations. The
accompanying financial statements and the following financial analysis represent
the consolidated financial position and results of operations of New Gaylord,
both before and after giving effect to the Transactions.
 
SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 1997 COMPARED TO SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 1996
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
     The following table contains unaudited selected income statement data for
the six month periods ended June 30, 1997 and 1996 (amounts in thousands). The
pro forma data for the six month period ended June 30, 1997 is presented as if
the Transactions had occurred on January 1, 1997. The table also shows the
percentage relationships to total revenues and, in the case of segment operating
income, its relationship to segment revenues. Old Gaylord purchased all of the
assets of Word on January 7, 1997 for approximately $120 million in cash. The
assets and liabilities of Word will be transferred to New Gaylord as part of the
Restructuring. In addition to the Transactions, the pro forma data for the six
months ended June 30, 1997 reflects the impact of the results of operations of
Word subsequent to the acquisition date as detailed in New Gaylord's Unaudited
Pro Forma Consolidated Financial Statements and the footnotes thereto for the
six month period ended June 30, 1997.

</TABLE>

 
  Revenues
 
     Total Revenues -- Total revenues increased $39.7 million, or 11.4%, to
$387.8 million in the first six months of 1997. The increase was primarily
attributable to the expansion of the Opryland Hotel in the hospitality and
 
                                       31

<PAGE>   35
 
attractions segment and continued growth in the cable networks segment. On a pro
forma basis assuming the Transactions had occurred on January 1, 1997, total
revenues for the six months ended June 30, 1997 would have been $256.8 million,
and would have been $209.9 million excluding the revenues of Word subsequent to
the date of the Word acquisition.
 
     Hospitality and Attractions -- Revenues in the hospitality and attractions
segment increased $22.7 million, or 17.2%, to $154.7 million in the first six
months of 1997. Opryland Hotel revenues increased $24.8 million, or 29.8%, to
$108.1 million in the first six months of 1997 principally because of the hotel
expansion. The hotel's occupancy rate increased to 82.2% in the first six months
of 1997 compared to 81.2% in the first six months of 1996. The hotel sold
408,900 rooms in the first six months of 1997 compared to 339,500 rooms sold in
the same period of 1996 reflecting a 20.4% increase over 1996. The hotel's
average guest room rate increased to $131.36 in the first six months of 1997
from $127.27 in the first six months of 1996. At June 30, 1997, the hotel's
advanced bookings were approximately $1 billion of future revenues at current
rates with a significant portion of these advanced bookings relating to the next
three years.
 
     Broadcasting and Music -- Revenues increased $0.3 million, or 0.6%, to
$49.5 million for the first six months of 1997. On a pro forma basis, revenues
for the broadcasting and music segment for the six month period ended June 30,
1997 would have been $96.5 million, $46.8 million of which would have been
attributable to Word subsequent to the date of the Word acquisition.
 
     Cable Networks -- Revenues increased $16.7 million, or 10.0%, to $183.7
million for the first six months of 1997. Advertising revenues increased 9.5%
for the first six months of 1997 at TNN. Subscriber revenues at TNN increased
6.5% for the first six months of 1997 as the number of U.S. subscribers
increased to 69.4 million in June 1997 from 65.3 million in June 1996. Revenues
related to CMT increased 22.9% for the first six months of 1997 due to growth in
both advertising and subscriber revenues. CMT subscribers increased to 39.4
million in June 1997 from 33.5 million in June 1996. CMT International revenues
increased to $5.6 million in the first six months of 1997 from $4.6 million in
the first six months of 1996. On a pro forma basis, revenues for the cable
networks segment for the first six months of 1997 would have been $5.6 million.
 
  Operating Expenses
 
     Total Operating Expenses -- Total operating expenses increased $36.8
million, or 12.6%, to $328.3 million for the first six months of 1997. Operating
costs, as a percentage of revenues, remained unchanged at 59.6% during the first
six months of 1997 and 1996. Selling, general and administrative expenses, as a
percentage of revenues, increased to 18.2% in the first six months of 1997 from
18.0% in the first six months of 1996, for the reasons explained below. On a pro
forma basis, total operating expenses for the first six months of 1997 would
have been $250.4 million, and would have been $203.9 million excluding the total
operating expenses of Word subsequent to the date of the Word acquisition.
 
       Operating Costs -- Operating costs increased $23.5 million, or 11.3%, to
$230.9 million in the first six months of 1997. The increase was attributable to
increased operating costs at the Opryland Hotel of $16.5 million for the first
six months of 1997 primarily related to the hotel expansion. In addition,
operating costs increased during the first six months of 1997 due to the
continued growth in the cable networks segment, including a $3.4 million
increase in Westinghouse commissions at TNN, a $2.8 million increase in
programming costs at TNN, and a $2.8 million increase in operating costs related
to the expansion of CMT International including increased costs for a 24-hour
transponder for CMT International's European operations. These increases were
partially offset by decreases in operating costs for the first six months of
1997 of $1.1 million at the Opryland theme park due to cost-cutting measures and
$1.3 million at KSTW. On a pro forma basis, operating costs for the first six
months of 1997 would have been $160.4 million, and would have been $131.8
million excluding the operating costs of Word subsequent to the date of the Word
acquisition.
 
     Selling, General and Administrative -- Selling, general and administrative
expenses increased $7.9 million, or 12.6%, to $70.6 million for the first six
months of 1997. The increase was primarily attributable to higher promotional
expenses related to CMT and CMT International of $1.5 million and $2.0 million,
respectively, for the first six months of 1997. Administrative costs increased
$2.2 million at the Opryland Hotel during the first six months of 1997 primarily
because of the hotel expansion. In addition, selling, general and administrative
 
                                       32

<PAGE>   36
 
expenses increased $1.6 million in the first six months of 1997 as a result of
the expansion of the NASCAR Thunder Stores, a chain of auto racing-themed retail
stores, which will be acquired by Westinghouse in the Merger. Selling, general
and administrative expenses for the first six months of 1997 would have been
$67.8 million on a pro forma basis, and would have been $51.2 million excluding
the selling, general and administrative expenses of Word subsequent to the date
of the Word acquisition.
 
     Depreciation and Amortization -- Depreciation and amortization increased
$5.5 million, or 25.8%, to $26.8 million for the first six months of 1997. The
increase was primarily attributable to increased depreciation and amortization
expense of $3.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 1997 related to the
expansion of the Opryland Hotel. On a pro forma basis, depreciation and
amortization would have been $22.2 million for the first six months of 1997, and
would have been $20.8 million excluding the depreciation and amortization
expense of Word subsequent to the date of the Word acquisition.
 
  Operating Income
 
     Total operating income increased $2.9 million, or 5.1%, to $59.5 million
for the first six months of 1997. The increase in operating income in the
hospitality and attractions segment for the first six months of 1997 was
primarily related to greater operating income generated by the Opryland Hotel
and the reduction in operating expenses at the Opryland theme park. The
broadcasting and music segment operating income improved slightly for the first
six months of 1997. The cable networks segment increase reflected continued
growth of TNN and CMT, which was offset, in part, by increased operating losses
associated with CMT International's expansion. The operating losses of CMT
International increased to $7.6 million in the first six months of 1997 from
$3.7 million in the first six months of 1996. On a pro forma basis, operating
income for the first six months of 1997 would have been $6.3 million, including
operating income of $0.3 million attributable to Word subsequent to the date of
the Word acquisition.
 
     Although CMT International has yet to operate profitably, New Gaylord
believes that its operating results can be improved. If CMT International's
results of operations do not improve, however, New Gaylord will consider various
possible courses of action, including seeking a joint venture partner, pursuing
a sale of CMT International, or ceasing its operations. New Gaylord's ability to
improve CMT International's operating results may be negatively impacted by the
restrictions on its ability to change CMT International's programming content
for the five-year period immediately following the Merger under the
non-competition provisions of the Post-Closing Covenants Agreement. See "THE
POST-CLOSING COVENANTS AGREEMENT -- Agreement Not to Compete" in the Proxy
Statement/Prospectus.
 
  Interest Expense
 
     Interest expense increased $1.9 million to $22.1 million for the first six
months of 1997. The majority of New Gaylord's interest expense is derived from
interest charged on outstanding amounts payable to Old Gaylord. On a pro forma
basis, interest expense would have been $14.8 million in the first six months of
1997.
 
  Interest Income
 
     Interest income increased $1.2 million to $11.7 million in the first six
months of 1997. Interest income primarily results from noncash interest income
earned on a long-term note receivable.
 
  Other Gains (Losses)
 
     In June 1997, New Gaylord sold KSTW, its Tacoma-Seattle, Washington
television station, for $160.0 million in cash. The sale resulted in a pretax
gain of $144.3 million, which is included in other gains (losses) in the
condensed consolidated statements of income.
 
     In January 1996, New Gaylord sold KHTV, its Houston, Texas television
station, for $97.8 million, including certain working capital and other
adjustments of approximately $4.3 million. The sale resulted in a pretax gain of
$73.9 million which is included in other gains (losses) in the condensed
consolidated statements of income.

  Income Taxes
 
     New Gaylord's provision for income taxes was $65.9 million for the first
six months of 1997, which included a tax provision of $50.3 million on the gain
from the sale of KSTW, compared to $45.3 million for the first six months of
1996, which included a tax provision of $30.4 million on the gain from the sale
of KHTV. New Gaylord's effective tax rate on its income before provision for
income taxes was 34.3% for the first six months of 1997 compared to 37.8% for
the first six months of 1996. On a pro forma basis, the provision for income
taxes for the first six months of 1997 would have been $47.6 million.

  Revenues
 
     Total Revenues -- Total revenues increased $39.7 million, or 5.6%, to
$747.2 million in 1996. The increases were primarily attributable to continued
growth in the cable networks segment and increased revenues in the hospitality
and attractions segment resulting from the expansion of the Opryland Hotel. The
average number of guest rooms at the hotel increased from 1,907 in 1995 to 2,613
in 1996. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in revenues from
the broadcasting and music segment due to the sale of a television station in
January 1996 and a decline in revenues at New Gaylord's two other television
stations. On a pro forma basis assuming the Transactions had occurred on January
1, 1996, total revenues in 1996 would have been $426.5 million.
 
     Hospitality and attractions -- Revenues in the hospitality and attractions
segment increased $36.4 million, or 13.2%, to $313.0 million in 1996. Opryland
Hotel revenues increased $43.2 million, or 28.2%, to $196.2 million in 1996,
principally because of the hotel expansion. The hotel's occupancy rate decreased
to 84.7% in 1996 compared to 87.5% in 1995 because of the additional rooms which
became available in 1996. The hotel sold 780,300 rooms in 1996 compared to
587,200 rooms sold in 1995 reflecting a 32.9% increase. The hotel's average
guest room rate declined to $131.21 in 1996 from $132.99 in 1995. At December
31, 1996, the hotel's advanced bookings were approximately $1 billion of future
revenues at current rates with a significant portion of these advanced bookings
relating to the next three years. Opryland theme park revenues decreased $5.4
million in 1996 due primarily to a 5.7% decrease in theme park attendance and a
3.4% decrease in per guest spending as compared with 1995.
 
     Broadcasting and music -- Revenues decreased $45.8 million, or 30.9%, to
$102.4 million in 1996. Broadcasting and music revenues were impacted by New
Gaylord's sale of KHTV, a Houston, Texas, television station in January 1996.
Excluding the operations of KHTV from the 1995 results, broadcasting and music
revenues decreased 10.8% in 1996. The decline in broadcasting and music revenues
reflects a decrease in advertising inventory available for sale at New Gaylord's
Dallas and Seattle-area television stations resulting from their affiliation
with the CBS television network. The affiliation with CBS was effective on March
13, 1995 in Tacoma-Seattle and on July 2, 1995 in Dallas-Ft. Worth. Advertising
revenues at KSTW, New Gaylord's Tacoma-Seattle television station, also
decreased in 1996 due to a decline in ratings. In June 1997, New Gaylord
consummated the sale of KSTW for $160.0 million in cash, which will result in
the recognition of a gain.
 
     Cable networks -- Revenues increased $49.1 million, or 17.4%, to $331.8
million in 1996. Advertising revenues increased 19.6% during 1996 at TNN.
Subscriber revenues at TNN increased 12.2% in 1996 due to an increase in the
number of U.S. subscribers to 68.3 million in December 1996 from 64.4 million in
December 1995 and increased revenues from satellite customers. Revenues related
to the United States operations of CMT increased 19.3% in 1996 due to growth in
both advertising and subscriber revenues. CMT subscribers increased to 37.3
million in December 1996 from 31.7 million in December 1995. CMT International
revenues increased to $10.1 million in 1996 from $8.9 million in 1995. On a pro
forma basis, revenues for the cable networks segment in 1996 would have been
$11.2 million.
 
  Operating Expenses
 
     Total Operating Expenses -- Total operating expenses increased $21.9
million, or 3.7%, to $617.5 million in 1996. Operating costs, as a percentage of
revenues, decreased to 59.3% during 1996 as compared to 62.5% during 1995.
Selling, general and administrative expenses, as a percentage of revenues,
increased to 16.8% in 1996 from 16.3% in 1995. Total operating expenses for 1995
include operating expenses of KHTV of $30.1 million. Corporate expenses
increased in 1996 by $2.7 million, or 11.8%, to $25.1 million as a result of
increased administrative expenses at the corporate headquarters. On a pro forma
basis, total operating expenses for 1996 would have been $395.2 million.
 
     Operating Costs -- Operating costs increased $1.1 million, or 0.2%, to
$443.2 million in 1996. During 1995, New Gaylord recorded a nonrecurring pretax
charge of $13.3 million for the write-down of certain program rights at New
Gaylord's Dallas and Seattle-area television stations. This write-down was
primarily related to excess program rights resulting from the affiliations of
these stations with CBS. Excluding the effect of the 1995 program rights
write-down and the operating costs of KHTV, operating costs increased by $37.8
million, or
 
                                       35

<PAGE>   39
 
9.3%, in 1996. The increase was attributable to operating costs increases of
$23.6 million during 1996 at the Opryland Hotel, primarily as a result of the
hotel expansion. In addition, increased operating costs are attributable to the
continued growth in the cable networks segment, including an $11.6 million
increase in TNN's commissions payable to an affiliate of Westinghouse; a $9.3
million increase in programming costs at TNN; a $4.5 million increase in
operating costs related to the expansion of CMT International; and a $1.1
million operating cost increase relating to the opening of a chain of racing
themed retail stores. These increases were partially offset by a $10.4 million
decrease in operating costs during 1996 at New Gaylord's two remaining
television stations due to lower programming costs resulting from their
affiliation with CBS; a $3.5 million decrease in operating costs at the Opryland
theme park; and a $2.4 million decrease in operating costs of the Nashville On
Stage concert series. Because of New Gaylord's agreements with an affiliate of
Westinghouse, certain operating costs in the cable networks segment increase or
decrease proportionately with revenues. On a pro forma basis, operating costs
for 1996 would have been $261.2 million.
 
     Selling, General and Administrative -- Selling, general and administrative
expenses increased $10.1 million, or 8.8%, to $125.5 million in 1996. Excluding
the selling, general and administrative expenses of KHTV from the 1995 results,
selling, general and administrative expenses increased $16.0 million, or 14.7%,
in 1996. The increases for the year are primarily attributable to administrative
cost increases of $4.8 million at the Opryland Hotel, $3.7 million at TNN and
$1.2 million at the Opryland theme park. Selling and promotion costs at CMT's
domestic and international operations increased $1.5 million and $1.8 million,
respectively. New Gaylord's two remaining television stations also reflected
increased selling and promotion costs, which were $1.1 million greater than the
corresponding 1995 amounts. In addition, New Gaylord had nonrecurring expenses
of $1.1 million during 1996 related to its obligations under an employment
agreement with its departing chief operating officer which is included in the
increases discussed above. On a pro forma basis, selling, general, and
administrative expenses for 1996 would have been $95.6 million.
 
     Depreciation and Amortization -- Depreciation and amortization increased
$10.8 million, or 28.3%, to $48.9 million in 1996. The increase was primarily
attributable to the expansion of the Opryland Hotel and continued growth in the
cable networks segment. On a pro forma basis, depreciation and amortization
would have been $38.4 million in 1996.
 
  Operating Income
 
     Total operating income increased $17.8 million, or 15.9%, to $129.6 million
during 1996. This increase reflects higher operating income in all operating
segments. The hospitality and attractions segment increase is primarily related
to greater operating income generated by the Opryland Hotel expansion. The
broadcasting and music segment increase resulted from the 1995 write-down of
television program rights. Excluding the impact of this write-down, broadcasting
and music segment operating income decreased primarily due to the sale of KHTV
and the decline in revenues at New Gaylord's Tacoma-Seattle television station
as discussed above. The cable networks increase is a result of the continued
growth of TNN and CMT offset, in part, by increased operating losses associated
with CMT International's expansion. Operating losses of CMT International
increased to $13.0 million in 1996 from $7.1 million in 1995. On a pro forma
basis, total operating income would have been $31.3 million in 1996.
 
  Interest Expense
 
     Interest expense increased $9.0 million to $49.9 million in 1996. The
majority of New Gaylord's interest expense is derived from interest charged on
outstanding amounts due to Old Gaylord. A significant portion of New Gaylord's
interest expense for 1995 was attributable to the Systems prior to their sale in
September 1995. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles,
such interest was allocated to the Systems and was therefore not included in
income from continuing operations. On a pro forma basis, interest expense would
have been $19.0 million in 1996.
 
                                       36

<PAGE>   40
 
  Interest Income
 
     Interest income increased $15.6 million to $21.6 million in 1996. This
increase primarily results from an additional $15.5 million of noncash interest
income in 1996 recorded on the long-term note receivable from the sale of the
Systems.
 
  Other Gains (Losses)
 
     In January 1996, New Gaylord sold its Houston, Texas, television station,
KHTV, for $97.8 million, including certain working capital and other adjustments
of approximately $4.3 million. The sale resulted in a pretax gain of $73.9
million which is included in other gains (losses) in 1996.
 
     In 1995, New Gaylord recorded a pretax charge of $5.5 million to reflect
losses related to the January 1996 disposal of its 14% limited partnership
interest in the Fiesta Texas theme park. The charge was based on the permanent
impairment in the value of the investment and New Gaylord's guarantee of certain
indebtedness related to the original construction of Fiesta Texas. New Gaylord
paid $13.0 million to transfer its partnership interest and related obligations
to a subsidiary of USAA, the majority investor, in January 1996. In connection
with New Gaylord's termination of its interest in Fiesta Texas, New Gaylord was
released from the loan guarantee.
 
  Income Taxes
 
     New Gaylord's provision for income taxes on income from continuing
operations was $62.9 million for 1996 compared to $27.5 million for 1995. New
Gaylord's effective tax rate on its income from continuing operations before
provision for income taxes was 36.3% for 1996 compared to 39.9% for 1995. Income
taxes for 1996 on a pro forma basis would have been $35.8 million.
 
YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1995, COMPARED TO YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1994
 
  Revenues
 
     Total Revenues -- Total revenues increased $19.5 million, or 2.8%, to
$707.5 million in 1995. The increase was primarily attributable to growth in the
cable networks segment offset in part by a decrease in broadcasting and music
segment revenues.
 
     Hospitality and attractions -- Revenues in the hospitality and attractions
segment increased $2.1 million, or 0.8%, to $276.6 million in 1995. Opryland
Hotel revenues increased $6.0 million, or 4.1%, to $153.1 million in 1995 due
primarily to an additional 385 guest rooms completed in the fourth quarter of
1995 and an increase in the average guest room rate to $132.99 in 1995 from
$130.15 in 1994. The hotel's occupancy rate was 87.5% in 1995 and 87.9% in 1994.
Hospitality and attractions segment revenues also increased during 1995 due to a
full year of operations of the Wildhorse Saloon and the renovated Ryman
Auditorium, each of which opened in June 1994. These increases were offset by
lower revenues from the Nashville On Stage concert series, which had fewer
concerts in 1995 than in 1994; lower revenues related to the nonrecurring 1994
production of the World Cup opening ceremonies; and a decrease in Opryland theme
park attendance to 2.1 million visitors in 1995 from 2.3 million visitors in
1994.
 
     Broadcasting and music -- Revenues decreased $21.4 million, or 12.6%, to
$148.2 million in 1995. Broadcasting and music revenues were impacted by New
Gaylord's sale of substantially all of the assets of WVTV, a Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, television station, in May 1994. Excluding the revenues related to
WVTV's operations, broadcasting and music revenues decreased 8.7% in 1995 as
compared to 1994. Revenues from New Gaylord's remaining television stations
reflected decreased advertising demand at those stations, partially due to
decreased fan and advertiser support for major league baseball. The decline in
revenues also reflected a decrease in advertising inventory available for sale
at New Gaylord's Dallas and Seattle-area television stations due to their
affiliation with CBS.
 
     Cable networks -- Revenues increased $38.7 million, or 15.9%, to $282.6
million in 1995. Advertising revenues increased 12.5% at TNN in 1995 due to
higher advertising rates. TNN subscriber revenues increased
 
                                       37

<PAGE>   41
 
8.5% due to an increase in the number of subscribers to 64.4 million at the end
of 1995 from 58.7 million at the end of 1994, an increase in subscriber rates,
and an increase in revenue from satellite customers. Revenues at CMT increased
25.1% in 1995 due to increased advertising and subscriber revenues. The number
of CMT subscribers increased by 27.4% to 31.7 million at the end of 1995 from
24.9 million at the end of 1994.
 
  Operating Expenses
 
     Total Operating Expenses -- Total operating expenses increased $26.2
million, or 4.6%, to $595.6 million in 1995. As a percentage of revenues,
operating costs increased slightly to 62.5% in 1995 compared to 62.2% in 1994.
As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses
increased to 16.3% in 1995 from 15.8% in 1994. Corporate expenses increased $1.4
million, or 6.8%, to $22.4 million because of increased administrative expenses
at the corporate headquarters.
 
     Operating Costs -- Operating costs increased $14.3 million, or 3.4%, to
$442.2 million in 1995. During 1995, New Gaylord recorded a nonrecurring pretax
charge of $13.3 million for the write-down of certain program rights at New
Gaylord's Dallas and Seattle-area television stations. Excluding the impact of
the television program write-down, operating costs increased $1.0 million, or
0.2%, to $428.9 million in 1995. Additional increases in operating costs during
1995 were attributable to the Wildhorse Saloon and the Ryman Auditorium being
operational for all of 1995, compared with seven months of operations in 1994,
representing an increase of $4.5 million; growth in the cable networks,
including increased Group W commissions and higher programming costs at TNN
which resulted in an increase of $12.9 million; and increased labor costs at the
Opryland Hotel. These increases were partially offset by lower operating costs
of $9.4 million resulting from fewer Nashville On Stage concerts; the
nonrecurring 1994 production of the World Cup opening ceremonies which reduced
operating costs by $3.1 million; and the 1994 inclusion of WVTV's operating
costs of $6.0 million prior to its sale.
 
     Selling, General and Administrative -- Selling, general and administrative
expenses increased $6.7 million, or 6.2%, to $115.4 million in 1995. The
increase was primarily due to increased selling and promotional costs of $3.8
million associated with CMT's international expansion; higher administrative
costs at the Opryland Hotel and Opryland theme park of $3.2 million; and the
continued growth of TNN and CMT which resulted in an increase of $2.4 million.
These increases were partially offset by decreases at New Gaylord's television
stations of $2.3 million, primarily attributable to the impact of the sale of
WVTV in 1994, and reduced promotional costs associated with the Nashville On
Stage concert series.
 
     Depreciation and Amortization -- Depreciation and amortization increased
15.6% to $38.1 million in 1995 due to the capital improvements at the Opryland
Hotel, growth in the cable networks segment, and a full year of operations for
the Wildhorse Saloon and the Ryman Auditorium.
 
  Operating Income
 
     Total operating income decreased $6.7 million, or 5.6%, to $111.8 million
in 1995. Excluding the nonrecurring charge for the write-down of television
program rights, total operating income increased $6.6 million, or 5.6%, to
$125.1 million in 1995. The hospitality and attractions segment had a $1.9
million increase in operating income during 1995, due primarily to the reduction
of operating losses of the Nashville On Stage concert series by $6.3 million.
The broadcasting and music segment had a $5.0 million decrease in operating
income during 1995, excluding the effect of the write-down of television program
rights, due primarily to the decline in revenues at New Gaylord's television
stations as discussed above and increased news costs resulting from the
affiliations with CBS. The cable networks segment had an $11.1 million increase
in operating income in 1995, reflecting improvements at both TNN and CMT, which
were offset by a $1.6 million increase in losses from CMT's international
operations.
 
  Interest Expense
 
     Interest expense increased $13.3 million to $40.9 million in 1995. The
majority of New Gaylord's interest expense is derived from interest charged on
outstanding amounts due to Old Gaylord. Additional interest expense for 1995 and
1994, $17.1 million and $19.7 million, respectively, was attributable to the
Systems prior to their
 
                                       38

<PAGE>   42
 
sale. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, such interest
has been allocated to the Systems and is therefore not included in income from
continuing operations.
 
  Interest Income
 
     Interest income increased $5.2 million to $6.0 million in 1995. This
increase primarily resulted from $5.0 million of noncash interest income
recorded on the long-term note receivable from the sale of the Systems.
 
  Other Gains (Losses)
 
     In 1995, New Gaylord recorded a pretax charge of $5.5 million (in addition
to the pretax charge of $26.0 million recorded in December 1994) to reflect
losses related to the January 1996 disposal of its 14% limited partnership
interest in the Fiesta Texas theme park. The charges were based on the permanent
impairment in the value of the investment and New Gaylord's guarantee on certain
indebtedness related to the original construction of Fiesta Texas.
 
     Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. purchased the non-license assets of WVTV
from New Gaylord in May 1994 for $18.2 million, resulting in a pretax gain of
$10.7 million, and assigned its purchase option for the license assets of WVTV
to Glencairn, Ltd., which exercised the option and purchased the license assets
in July 1995.
 
  Income Taxes
 
     New Gaylord's provision for income taxes was $27.5 million for 1995
compared to $29.5 million for 1994. New Gaylord's effective tax rate on its
income from continuing operations before provision for income taxes was 39.9%
for 1995 compared to 38.5% for 1994.
 
  Discontinued Operations
 
     On September 29, 1995, New Gaylord sold the Systems to CCT Holdings Corp.
("CCTH"), an entity jointly owned by investment partnerships affiliated with
Kelso & Company, Inc. and by Charter Communications, Inc. ("Charter"), an owner
and manager of cable systems. Proceeds from the sale, after a working capital
adjustment, consisted of $198.8 million in cash and a 10-year, $165.7 million
note (the "Note") with an interest rate of 12% per year which increases to 15%
in year six and increases 2% per year thereafter, with principal and interest
payable at maturity. The Note was recorded at $150.7 million, net of a $15.0
million discount, to reflect the Note at fair value at the date of the sale
based upon financial instruments of comparable credit risk and interest rates.
In addition, New Gaylord received the contractual right to 15% of the net
distributable proceeds, as defined, from certain future sales by Charter
Communications Entertainment, L.P., a newly formed joint venture created to
operate cable television systems, to which CCTH contributed certain of the
Systems' assets which were purchased from New Gaylord. Immediately prior to the
closing of the sale, New Gaylord paid Charter $10.6 million to acquire the
remaining 2.9% interest in the Systems.
 
     New Gaylord recorded a gain of $43.0 million, net of tax of $30.8 million,
on the sale of the Systems during 1995. The Systems have been accounted for as
discontinued operations and, accordingly, the Systems' losses including interest
expense (based upon debt that can be specifically attributed to the Systems)
subsequent to the November 1993 measurement date were deferred and reflected as
a reduction in the gain on the sale of the Systems. The 1995 net loss from
discontinued operations prior to the sale of the Systems was $19.5 million,
including interest expense of $17.1 million, which was deferred and reflected as
a reduction in the gain on the sale of the Systems.
 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
     The cable networks segment of New Gaylord's operations has historically
contributed a significant portion of New Gaylord's total revenues and operating
income. Although the net cash flow generated by the Cable Networks Business will
no longer be available to New Gaylord, the sale of the Cable Networks Business
to Westinghouse pursuant to the Merger is not expected to adversely affect New
Gaylord's ability to conduct and expand its operations. In addition, the net
cash flow generated by New Gaylord's operations has historically
 
                                       39

<PAGE>   43
 
exceeded its net investing and financing requirements and New Gaylord's
management believes that the net cash flow from New Gaylord's operations will
continue to do so. New Gaylord currently projects capital expenditures of
approximately $52.0 million for 1997, of which approximately $23.4 million had
been spent as of June 30, 1997.
 
     Old Gaylord currently has, and, following the Merger, New Gaylord expects
to implement, a centralized cash management system whereby cash is or will be
made available to New Gaylord's various business operations on an as needed
basis for normal operating activities. In connection with the Transactions, New
Gaylord will assume all of Old Gaylord's long-term debt, which, at June 30,
1997, aggregated approximately $354 million, by assuming Old Gaylord's
obligations under the 1997 Credit Facility. See "THE RESTRUCTURING, THE
DISTRIBUTION, AND THE MERGER -- New Gaylord Credit Facility."
 
     New Gaylord's management believes that the net cash flow from New Gaylord's
operations, together with the amount available for borrowing under the 1997
Credit Facility will be sufficient to satisfy New Gaylord's anticipated future
cash requirements on both a short-term and long-term basis.
 
SEASONALITY
 
     Certain of New Gaylord's operations are subject to seasonal fluctuation.
Many of the operations in the hospitality and attractions segment are either
closed or operate on a limited basis during the first quarter of the year and
conduct most of their business during the summer tourism season. The first
calendar quarter is also the weakest quarter for most television and radio
broadcasters, including New Gaylord, as advertising revenues are lower in the
post-Christmas period. Revenues in the music business are typically weakest in
the first calendar quarter following the Christmas buying season.
 
RECENT DEVELOPMENTS
 
     New Gaylord was notified recently by Nashville governmental authorities of
an increase in appraised value and property tax rates on the Opryland Hotel and
Opryland theme park resulting in a potential tax assessment of approximately
$4.1 million more than was originally anticipated. New Gaylord is in the process
of appealing the appraised values. New Gaylord intends to vigorously contest the
increased tax assessment, but believes that, even if the appeal is determined
unfavorably, the increased tax will not have a material adverse effect on New
Gaylord's results of operations or financial position.

COMMITTEES OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
 
     In order to facilitate the activities of the New Gaylord Board of Directors
following the Distribution, the Board of Directors intends to create several
standing committees, including an Audit Committee and a Compensation Committee.
The Board of Directors will not have a standing nominating committee. The
functions normally performed by a nominating committee will be performed by the
Board of Directors as a whole. The anticipated committees, their primary
functions, and their memberships are as follows:
 
          Audit Committee -- This Committee will make recommendations to the New
     Gaylord Board of Directors with respect to the appointment of independent
     public accountants, review significant audit and accounting policies and
     practices, meet with New Gaylord's independent public accountants
     concerning, among other things, the scope of audits and reports, and review
     the performance of the overall accounting and financial controls of New
     Gaylord. Initial members of the Audit Committee are expected to be Martin
     C. Dickinson (Chairman) and Joe M. Rodgers, each of whom currently serves
     on the Audit Committee of Old Gaylord.
 
          Compensation Committee -- This Committee will have the responsibility
     for reviewing and approving the compensation and benefits of executive
     officers, advising management regarding benefits, including bonuses, and
     other terms and conditions of compensation of other employees,
     administering New Gaylord's stock plan, and reviewing and recommending
     compensation of directors. Initial members of the Compensation Committee
     are expected to be Martin C. Dickinson and Joe M. Rodgers (Chairman), each
     of whom currently serves on the Compensation Committee of Old Gaylord.
 
     Nominations for election to the Board of Directors may be made by the Board
of Directors, by a nominating committee appointed by the Board of Directors, or
by any stockholder entitled to vote for the election of directors as described
below. The By-laws establish an advance notice procedure for the nomination,
other than by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or a committee
thereof, of candidates for election as directors. Notice of director nominations
must be timely given in writing to the Secretary of New Gaylord prior to the
meeting at which the directors are to be elected. To be timely, notice must be
delivered to or mailed and received at the principal executive offices of New
Gaylord (a) in the case of an annual meeting, not less than 60 nor more than 90
days prior to the anniversary date of the immediately preceding annual meeting
of stockholders; provided, however, that in the event that the annual meeting is
called for a date that is not within 30 days before or after such anniversary
date, notice must be so received not later than the close of business on the
tenth day following the day on which such notice of the date of the annual
meeting was mailed or public disclosure of the date of the annual meeting was
made, whichever first occurs; and (b) in the case of a special meeting of
stockholders called for the purpose of electing directors, not later than the
close of business on the tenth day following the day on which notice of the date
of the special meeting was mailed or public disclosure of the date of the
special meeting was made, whichever first occurs. Notice to New Gaylord from a
stockholder who proposes to nominate a person at a meeting for election as a
director must contain all information about such person that would be required
to be included in a proxy statement soliciting proxies for the election of the
proposed nominee (including such person's written consent to serve as a director
if so elected) and certain information about the stockholder proposing to
nominate that person. If the chairman of the meeting of stockholders determines
that a person was not nominated in accordance with the nomination procedure,
such nomination will be disregarded.
 
DIRECTORS' COMPENSATION
 
     Arrangements regarding directors' compensation for services as directors
will be determined by the New Gaylord Compensation Committee. It is currently
anticipated that employee directors will not be compensated for service as
directors in addition to their salaries and that all directors will be
reimbursed for their expenses incurred in attending meetings. Directors will
also be entitled to receive awards under the New Gaylord Entertainment Company
1997 Stock Option and Incentive Plan (the "1997 Stock Plan"). See "EXECUTIVE
COMPENSATION -- Compensation Pursuant to Plans -- 1997 Stock Plan."

                             EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
 
     Prior to the Distribution, New Gaylord has been a wholly owned subsidiary
of Old Gaylord and New Gaylord's officers and directors have not been separately
compensated for acting in such capacities. The following Summary Compensation
Table sets forth the cash compensation and certain other components of the
compensation of Earl W. Wendell, the President and Chief Executive Officer of
Old Gaylord at December 31, 1996, and the other four most highly compensated
executive officers of Old Gaylord who were serving as executive officers at
December 31, 1996 (including Mr. Wendell, the "Named Executive Officers"). Mr.
Wendell retired in May 1997 and was replaced as President and Chief Executive
Officer by Terry E. London. Following the Merger, David Hall will remain with
the Cable Networks Business and will be employed by an affiliate of
Westinghouse. Compensation and benefits to be provided by New Gaylord to its
executive officers will be governed, in part, by the severance agreements
between such officers and Old Gaylord. See "-- Employment, Severance, and Change
in Control Arrangements."

(1) Awards of shares of restricted Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock (the
    "Performance Shares") were made in 1996 and 1995 to the Named Executive
    Officers other than Mr. Gaylord, the restrictions with respect to which were
    designed to lapse on the third anniversary of the date of grant based on the
    extent to which Old Gaylord attained certain predetermined cumulative
    earnings per share targets. Persons holding Performance Shares are entitled
    to dividends and voting rights from the date of grant. The numbers of
    Performance Shares awarded to Messrs. Wendell, Vaughn, London, and Hall in
    each of 1996 and 1995 were 13,230, 5,787, 3,307, and 4,133, respectively.
    The values of these awards as shown in the table are based on per share
    prices of $25.60 and $23.13, the closing market prices of the Class A Common
    Stock as reported on the NYSE on the respective dates of the awards. Based
    on the closing market price of the Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock of
    $22.875 as reported on the NYSE on December 31, 1996, the aggregate values
    of the 1996 and 1995 awards to Messrs. Wendell, Vaughn, London, and Hall
    were $605,273 (see Note 3), $264,755, $151,295, and $189,085. In connection
    with the Merger, Performance Shares will vest as though Old Gaylord had
    achieved 100% of the applicable performance targets with respect to such
    Performance Shares (as contemplated by the Distribution Agreement).
    Accordingly, restrictions on two-thirds of the outstanding Performance
    Shares will lapse. The remaining one-third of those Performance Shares will
    be forfeited.
(2) Includes contributions by Old Gaylord to the supplemental deferred
    compensation plan (the "SUDCOMP Plan") and to Old Gaylord's 401(k) Savings
    Plan (the "Savings Plan"), and premiums paid by Old Gaylord for term life
    insurance provided for the benefit of the Named Executive Officers. Mr.
    Gaylord is not a

<PAGE>   48
 
    participant in the SUDCOMP Plan or Savings Plan nor does he receive life
    insurance benefits from Old Gaylord. Old Gaylord's contributions to the
    SUDCOMP Plan, the Savings Plan, and payments on behalf of the Named
    Executive Officers for group term life insurance are reflected below. In
    connection with the Restructuring and the Merger, New Gaylord will assume
    the SUDCOMP Plan and the Savings Plan and Mr. Hall will become fully vested
    under each of such plans and will no longer be eligible to participate
    therein.

(3) Mr. Wendell retired from his positions as an officer and director of Old
    Gaylord and various of its subsidiaries effective as of May 1, 1997. In
    connection with his retirement, Mr. Wendell agreed to (i) exercise all of
    his options for Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock that were in-the-money
    (covering 882,000 shares), (ii) forfeit all out-of-the-money options for Old
    Gaylord Class A Common Stock (covering 107,625 shares), and (iii) sell, on
    or before August 31, 1997, all shares of Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock
    issued upon the exercise of such options. In consideration therefor, and in
    recognition of his past contributions to Old Gaylord, Old Gaylord agreed to
    pay Mr. Wendell a cash bonus of $1,900,000 and accelerated the vesting of
    17,640 Performance Shares as though Old Gaylord had achieved 100% of the
    applicable performance targets with respect to such Performance Shares (as
    contemplated by the Distribution Agreement, except that Mr. Wendell's
    Performance Shares vested as of his retirement date rather than as of the
    Time of Distribution). In addition to benefits he is otherwise entitled to
    receive under Old Gaylord's existing benefit plans, in connection with his
    retirement Mr. Wendell will receive (i) the pro rata portion of his target
    bonus for 1997, which will be payable by New Gaylord in 1998; (ii) up to
    $10,000 for personal financial counseling services; and (iii) title to his
    company car. In addition, Old Gaylord, New Gaylord, and Mr. Wendell have
    entered into a Consulting Agreement pursuant to which Mr. Wendell has agreed
    to provide consulting services to Old Gaylord and, after the Distribution
    and the Merger, to New Gaylord, for a period of three years for which he
    will receive payments totaling $800,000. Mr. Wendell has also executed a
    Noncompetition Agreement pursuant to which Mr. Wendell has agreed not to
    compete with Old Gaylord and, after the Distribution and the Merger, with
    New Gaylord for a period of three years for which he will receive payments
    totaling $800,000. In connection with the Restructuring and the
    Distribution, Old Gaylord's rights and obligations under the Consulting
    Agreement and the Noncompetition Agreement will be assigned to and assumed
    by New Gaylord.
(4) Includes fees for services as a director of $30,000.
(5) Mr. Hall became a Vice President of Old Gaylord on December 1, 1996.

                 OLD GAYLORD OPTION GRANTS IN LAST FISCAL YEAR
 
     The following table summarizes the terms of stock options granted by Old
Gaylord to each of the Named Executive Officers during 1996. All of the options
referred to in the table below are nonqualified stock options granted pursuant
to Old Gaylord's 1993 Stock Option and Incentive Plan (the "1993 Stock Plan") at
the fair market value on the date of grant (determined as the closing sale price
on the NYSE of Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock on the trading day preceding the
grant) and are for the purchase of Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock. In
connection with the Merger, all then outstanding options, including those that
are held by the Named Executive Officers other than Mr. Hall, will be converted
into options to purchase New Gaylord Common Stock. Mr. Hall's options will be
converted into options to purchase Westinghouse Common Stock. See "-- Issuance
of New Gaylord Options and Conversion of Old Gaylord Options." No stock
appreciation rights have ever been granted by Old Gaylord.

ISSUANCE OF NEW GAYLORD OPTIONS AND CONVERSION OF OLD GAYLORD OPTIONS
 
     Pursuant to the Distribution Agreement, all options to acquire Old Gaylord
Class A Common Stock that are held by persons who, following the Distribution,
will be New Gaylord employees will be converted into fully vested and
exercisable options to acquire shares of New Gaylord Common Stock under the 1997
Stock Plan, with such amendments and adjustments as the New Gaylord Board of
Directors determines are reasonable and appropriate based, in part, on the Per
Share Merger Consideration and the fair market value of the New Gaylord Common
Stock immediately following the Distribution. As a result, the number of options
to acquire shares of New Gaylord Common Stock to be granted upon the conversion
of options to acquire shares of Company Class A Common Stock is not presently
determinable. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, all options to acquire shares of
Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock that are held by persons who, following the
Distribution, will remain with the Cable Networks Business and become employees
of an affiliate of Westinghouse following the Merger will be converted into
options to acquire shares of Westinghouse Common Stock. See "THE MERGER
AGREEMENT -- Employee Matters and Stock Options" in the Proxy
Statement/Prospectus.
 
COMPENSATION PURSUANT TO PLANS
 
  1997 Stock Plan
 
     New Gaylord's Board of Directors and Old Gaylord's stockholders have
approved the 1997 Stock Plan, pursuant to which directors, officers, and other
key employees of New Gaylord will be eligible to receive awards of stock
options, stock appreciation rights and restricted stock. Options granted under
the 1997 Stock Plan may be "incentive stock options" ("ISOs"), within the
meaning of Section 422 of the Code, or nonqualified stock options ("NQSOs").
Stock Appreciation Rights ("SARs") may be granted simultaneously with the grant
of an option or (in the case of NQSOs) at any time during its term. Restricted
stock may be granted in addition to or in lieu of any other award granted under
the 1997 Stock Plan.
 
     The 1997 Stock Plan provides that awards may be granted covering up to
3,000,000 shares of New Gaylord Common Stock (subject to antidilution and
similar adjustments in the event of a stock split, combination of shares,
recapitalization, or similar changes). The 1997 Stock Plan limits the number of
shares with respect to which awards (including options, SARs, and restricted
stock) may be granted to any individual to no more than 500,000 shares, in any
three-year period. Unless the 1997 Stock Plan is terminated earlier by New
Gaylord's Board of Directors, awards may be granted for a period of ten years
from the date of the Distribution.
 
     Unless otherwise determined by New Gaylord's Board of Directors, the 1997
Stock Plan will be administered by the Compensation Committee, which will be
comprised solely of "nonemployee directors" within the meaning of Rule 16b-3
under the Exchange Act, or by New Gaylord's Board of Directors if the
Compensation Committee is not so comprised (any entity administering the 1997
Stock Plan is hereinafter referred to as the "Committee"). It is currently
anticipated that the members of the Committee will also be "outside directors"
within the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Code. Subject to the provisions of
the 1997 Stock Plan, the Committee will determine the type of award, when and to
whom awards will be granted, and the number of shares covered by each award. The
Committee will have sole discretionary authority to interpret the 1997 Stock
Plan and to adopt rules and regulations related thereto. In determining the
persons to whom awards shall be granted and the number of shares covered by each
award, the Committee will take into account the contribution to the management,
growth, and profitability of the business of New Gaylord by the respective
persons and such other factors as the Committee deems relevant.
 
     The Committee will determine, in its sole discretion, the purchase price of
the shares of stock covered by an option and the kind of consideration payable
with respect to any awards; provided, however, that in the case of the ISOs, the
price must not be less than the "Fair Market Value" (as defined in the 1997
Stock Plan) on the date of grant, and provided further that the option price
must be 110% of the Fair Market Value in the case of ISOs granted to "Ten
Percent Stockholders" (as defined in the 1997 Stock Plan). The Committee may
provide for the payment of the option price in cash, by delivery of shares of
New Gaylord Common Stock having a Fair Market Value equal to such option price,
by a combination thereof, or by any other method in accordance with the terms of
the option agreements. The 1997 Stock Plan contains special rules governing the
time of exercise in the case of
 
                                       47

<PAGE>   51
 
death, disability, or other termination of employment and also provides for
acceleration of the exercisability of options in the event of a "Change in
Control" (as defined in the 1997 Stock Plan.)
 
     The 1997 Stock Plan also permits the Committee to grant SARs with respect
to all or any portion of the shares of New Gaylord Common Stock covered by
options. Each SAR will confer a right to receive an amount with respect to each
share subject thereto, upon exercise thereof, equal to the excess of (i) the
Fair Market Value of one share of New Gaylord Common Stock on the date of
exercise over (ii) the grant price of the SAR. The grant price of any SAR
granted in tandem with an option will be equal to the exercise price of the
underlying option, and the grant price of any other SAR will be such price as
the Committee determines. The Committee may, in its sole discretion, condition
the exercise of any SAR upon the attainment of specified Performance Goals (as
defined below).
 
     The 1997 Stock Plan also provides for the grant of restricted stock awards,
which are awards of New Gaylord Common Stock that may not be transferred or
otherwise disposed of, except by will or the laws of descent and distribution,
for such period as the Committee determines (the "Restricted Period"). The
Committee may also impose such other conditions and restrictions on the shares
as it deems appropriate, including the satisfaction of one or more of the
following performance criteria: (i) pre-tax income or after-tax income; (ii)
operating cash flow; (iii) operating profit; (iv) return on equity, assets,
capital, or investment; (v) earnings or book value per share; (vi) sales or
revenues; (vii) operating expenses; (viii) New Gaylord Common Stock price
appreciation; and (ix) implementation or completion of critical projects or
processes (the "Performance Goals"). The Performance Goals may include a
threshold level of performance below which no payment will be made (or no
vesting will occur), levels of performance at which specified payments will be
made (or specified vesting will occur), and a maximum level of performance above
which no additional payment will be made (or at which full vesting will occur).
Each of the Performance Goals will be determined, to the extent applicable, in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and will be subject to
certification by the Committee; provided, that the Committee will have the
authority to make equitable adjustments to the Performance Goals in recognition
of unusual or non-recurring events affecting New Gaylord. The Committee may
provide that such restrictions will lapse with respect to specified percentages
of the awarded shares on successive future dates.
 
     During the Restricted Period, the grantee will be entitled to receive
dividends with respect to, and to vote the shares awarded to him or her. If,
during the Restricted Period, the grantee's continuous employment with New
Gaylord terminates for any reason, any shares remaining subject to restrictions
will be forfeited, unless otherwise determined by the Committee. The Committee
has the authority to cancel any or all outstanding restrictions prior to the end
of the Restricted Period, including cancellation of restrictions in connection
with certain types of termination of employment.
 
     New Gaylord's Board of Directors may at any time and from time to time
suspend, amend, modify, or terminate the 1997 Stock Plan; provided, however,
that, no amendment that requires stockholder approval in order for the 1997
Stock Plan to continue to comply with Section 162(m) of the Code or any other
applicable law will be effective unless and until such amendment has received
the requisite approval by New Gaylord's stockholders.
 
  Retirement Plans
 
     Employees of New Gaylord and certain of its subsidiaries who have attained
age 21 and completed at least one year of service with more than 1,000 hours of
service will be eligible to participate in Old Gaylord's defined benefit pension
plan (the "Retirement Plan") and will receive full credit for service with Old
Gaylord for vesting purposes. The normal retirement benefit payable to a vested
participant upon retirement at age 65 is equal to the sum of:
 
          (A) 0.85% of the participant's Average Annual Compensation multiplied
     by his or her number of years of Benefit Accrual Service, as defined in the
     Retirement Plan; and
 
          (B) 0.65% of the excess, if any, of the participant's Average Annual
     Compensation over Covered Compensation multiplied by his or her years of
     Benefit Accrual Service not in excess of 35 years.
 
                                       48

<PAGE>   52
 
     The normal form of benefit is calculated in the form of a life only annuity
payable monthly. The participant may elect alternative forms of payment pursuant
to the provisions of the Retirement Plan.
 
     Average Annual Compensation is defined as the average of "includable
compensation" for the five consecutive years in which earnings were the highest
within the last ten years of benefit service. Includable compensation is defined
to include only base pay through December 31, 1988; thereafter it is defined as
all "wages" within the meaning of Code Section 3121(a) (without such base pay
limit), plus employee contributions to Old Gaylord's 401(k) Plan and Code
Section 125 deferrals, subject to additional limitations imposed by the Code.
Accrued benefits are 100% vested after five years of service.
 
     Pursuant to the Distribution Agreement, Old Gaylord is required to amend
the Retirement Plan so that the accrued benefit of each Old Gaylord employee who
becomes an employee of an affiliate of Westinghouse immediately following the
Merger vests, notwithstanding the vesting schedule under the Retirement Plan.
 
     Old Gaylord also maintains two non-qualified retirement plans to provide
benefits to certain employees of Old Gaylord: (i) the NLT Supplemental Executive
Retirement Plan (the "NLT SERP") and (ii) the Benefit Restoration Plan (the
"Restoration Plan"). These plans are not prefunded and the beneficiaries' rights
to receive distributions thereunder constitute unsecured claims to be paid from
the general assets of Old Gaylord.
 
     The NLT SERP provides a benefit to certain executives in an amount equal to
the actuarial difference between benefits provided by the Retirement Plan and
benefits that would have been available to such persons under the defined
benefit pension plan of the predecessor to Opryland USA Inc had service
continued thereunder from the date such predecessor was acquired by Old Gaylord,
August 31, 1983, until the date of retirement, service termination, or death of
the covered employee. The benefits payable under the NLT SERP are determined as
of the effective date of termination of employment and are restricted to the
maximum benefit limitation imposed by Section 415 of the Code. Mr. Vaughn is the
only Named Executive Officer currently covered by the NLT SERP and the estimated
benefit payable to Mr. Vaughn (calculated as of December 31, 1996) upon
retirement at normal retirement age is $32,864 annually.
 
     The Restoration Plan provides a benefit to certain employees to "replace"
benefits lost due to Code limitations imposed upon qualified defined benefit
pension plans. The benefit is determined by calculating the Retirement Plan
benefit without respect to limitations of the Code and subtracting the benefit
payable from the Retirement Plan. The total annual benefit is limited to 45% of
Average Annual Compensation (without respect to Code limitations) and consists
of benefits payable pursuant to the Restoration Plan, the Retirement Plan, the
NLT SERP, employer matching contributions to New Gaylord's 401(k) Savings Plan
and Supplemental Deferred Compensation Plan (assuming the maximum match), and
one-half of any annual Social Security benefit payable to the employee. To
determine the maximum benefit, all benefits are converted to a life only annuity
benefit payable at age 65. The Restoration Plan benefit is reduced (not below
zero) if the total annual benefit exceeds the 45% maximum limitations.
 
     The Distribution Agreement provides that New Gaylord will assume
sponsorship of and continue the Retirement Plan, the Restoration Plan, and the
NLT SERP.
 
     The following table shows the estimated annual pension payable under the
Retirement Plan and the Restoration Plan to employees upon retirement in
specified remuneration and years-of-service classifications. The amounts shown
in the table do not include benefits payable from Social Security. The amount of
estimated annual pension is based upon a pension formula which applies to all
participants in the Retirement Plan and the Restoration Plan. The estimated
amounts are based on the assumption that (i) payments under the Retirement Plan
and the Restoration Plan will commence upon retirement at age 65 in 1996 in the

(1) The maximum annual compensation that can be recognized by a qualified
    defined benefit pension retirement plan is $150,000 in 1996 (Code Section
    401(a)(17)).
(2) Estimated five-year final average compensation is based on 90% of pay at age
    65.
(3) The Restoration Plan benefit for covered employees whose "Pay at 65" equals
    or exceeds $200,000 in the table above is calculated by limiting total
    benefits payable under both of Old Gaylord's defined benefit plans (namely,
    the Retirement Plan and the Restoration Plan) to 45% of the amount of "Pay
    at 65." In calculating the 45% limitation, the Restoration Plan also assumes
    that company matching contributions have been made to the accounts of
    covered employees under the qualified and nonqualified defined contribution
    plans sponsored by Old Gaylord (which are described below) and actuarially
    converts those assumed matching contributions to a single life annuity
    benefit utilizing specified Retirement Plan actuarial assumptions.
 
     Messrs. Wendell, Gaylord, Vaughn, London, and Hall had 44, 49, 20, 18, and
30 years of credited service, respectively, on December 31, 1996. As a result of
the Code Section 401(a)(17) limitation on eligible compensation, the 1996
includable compensation in determining Average Annual Compensation was limited
to $150,000 for the Named Executive Officers in 1996.
 
  401(k) Savings Plan
 
     Old Gaylord maintains the Savings Plan, a defined contribution plan with a
salary deferral arrangement under Section 401(k) of the Code. Certain employees
of Old Gaylord who have attained age 21 and completed at least one year of
service and more than 1,000 hours of service are eligible to participate in the
Savings Plan. The Distribution Agreement provides that, following the
Distribution, New Gaylord will assume sponsorship of and continue the Savings
Plan.
 
     Savings Plan participants are permitted to make elective contributions of
between 1% and 16% of their "Compensation" (as defined in the Savings Plan)
which generally includes W-2 income. Under the Savings Plan, 50% of the
contribution made by each participant is matched by Old Gaylord up to six
percent of compensation with a maximum employer contribution equal to the lesser
of (i) three percent of the participant's Compensation or (ii) such lesser
amount specified by Section 401(k) of the Code.

</TABLE>

 
Pursuant to the Distribution Agreement, Old Gaylord is required to amend the
Savings Plan so that the entire account balance of each Old Gaylord employee who
becomes an employee of Westinghouse immediately following the Merger vests
notwithstanding the vesting schedule under the Savings Plan.
 
     Participants actively participating in the Savings Plan are eligible to
apply for up to three loans. They are also permitted to make in-service
withdrawals and hardship withdrawals in conformity with the terms of the Savings
Plan.
 
     Participating employees may invest both their own contributions and
employer contributions into one of seven funds including up to 30% of their
contributions in a fund comprised exclusively of Old Gaylord Class A Common
Stock.
 
     Upon termination of employment, disability, death, or retirement, a
participant receives the value of his or her account, payable as a lump sum
unless he or she elects to receive the value of his or her account balance in
the form of a joint and survivor annuity.
 
  Supplemental Deferred Compensation Plan
 
     Old Gaylord maintains the SUDCOMP Plan, which is an unfunded deferred
compensation arrangement for a select group of management or highly compensated
employees, including all of Old Gaylord's executive officers, which is intended
to provide benefits like those provided under the Savings Plan, notwithstanding
the limitations under the Savings Plan imposed by Section 401(k) of the Code.
The SUDCOMP Plan is administered by the Old Gaylord Benefits Trust Committee
which has the exclusive authority to select the employees who are entitled to
participate in the SUDCOMP Plan and to interpret and administer the SUDCOMP
Plan. The Distribution Agreement provides that, upon consummation of the Merger,
New Gaylord will assume sponsorship of the SUDCOMP Plan.
 
     The terms of the SUDCOMP Plan are generally the same as the terms of the
Savings Plan except that (i) employer matching contributions (if any) are 50%
vested after two years of service and are vested in full after three years of
service, (ii) upon termination of employment for any reason, distributions from
the SUDCOMP Plan must generally be distributed to participants within 90 days of
their termination of employment, (iii) distributions from the SUDCOMP Plan may
not be rolled into an Individual Retirement Account or another employer's
defined contribution plan, and (iv) distributions from the SUDCOMP Plan are
taxed in full upon distribution. SUDCOMP Plan participants are permitted to
invest both their own contributions and employer contributions in the funds made
available to Savings Plan participants, other than the Old Gaylord Class A
Common Stock Fund.
 
     Pursuant to the Distribution Agreement, Old Gaylord is required to amend
the SUDCOMP Plan so that the entire account balance of each Old Gaylord employee
who becomes an employee of Westinghouse immediately following the Merger is
vested notwithstanding the vesting schedule of the SUDCOMP Plan.
 
EMPLOYMENT, SEVERANCE, AND CHANGE IN CONTROL ARRANGEMENTS
 
     Awards granted under the 1997 Stock Plan become immediately exercisable or
otherwise nonforfeitable in full in the event of a Change in Control of New
Gaylord (as defined therein), notwithstanding specific terms of the awards
providing otherwise. Furthermore, with respect to stock options granted under
the 1997 Stock Plan, following a Change in Control the Compensation Committee
may, in its discretion, permit the cancellation of
 
                                       51

<PAGE>   55
 
such options in exchange for a cash payment in an amount per share equal,
generally, to the difference between the highest closing sales price during the
sixty-day period preceding the Change in Control and the exercise price. A
Change in Control is defined in the 1997 Stock Plan to include, among other
things, (i) the acquisition of securities representing a majority of the
combined voting power of all classes of New Gaylord's capital stock by any
person (other than New Gaylord and other related entities); (ii) the approval by
the stockholders of New Gaylord of a merger or consolidation of New Gaylord into
or with another entity (with certain exceptions), the sale or other disposition
of all or substantially all of New Gaylord's assets, or the adoption of a plan
of liquidation; or (iii) a change in the composition of the Board of Directors
in any two-year period such that individuals who were Board members at the
beginning of such period cease to constitute a majority thereof (with certain
exceptions).
 
     Old Gaylord has entered into severance agreements with certain members of
management (the "Severance Agreements"), including each of the Named Executive
Officers (collectively, the "executive officers"). These Severance Agreements
become effective following a "Change of Control" (as defined therein) and
provide for a two-year employment agreement thereafter. In the event an
executive officer is terminated or his or her compensation is reduced during
such two-year period, he or she is entitled to a lump sum payment equal to 250%
of the sum of his base salary and cash incentive bonus. A Change of Control is
defined in the Severance Agreements to include, among other things, the
acquisition of securities by a person of 33 1/3% or more of the combined voting
power of Old Gaylord's securities; mergers, consolidations, and sales of assets
in which existing Old Gaylord stockholders own less than a majority of the
resulting voting power; and changes in the composition of a majority of the
Board of Directors over a two-year period. The Merger will constitute a Change
of Control for purposes of the Severance Agreements. Accordingly, all executive
officers party thereto will have two-year employment agreements with New Gaylord
following the Distribution as provided by the Severance Agreements.
 
COMPENSATION COMMITTEE INTERLOCKS AND INSIDER PARTICIPATION
 
     The Compensation Committee of the New Gaylord Board of Directors will be
composed of Messrs. Dickinson and Rodgers. During 1996, Martin C. Dickinson, Joe
M. Rodgers and, until May 1, 1996, E. K. Gaylord II, served as members of the
Compensation Committee of the Old Gaylord Board of Directors.
 
     From 1989 until October 1991, E. K. Gaylord II, a member of the
Compensation Committee until May 1, 1996, served as Vice President of Old
Gaylord, and has served as Vice-Chairman of the Old Gaylord Board of Directors
since May 2, 1996. He is currently the president and a director of OPUBCO.
Edward L. Gaylord, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Old Gaylord, is
currently the chairman, chief executive officer and a director of OPUBCO, and in
such capacities is in a position to influence the compensation of E. K. Gaylord
II.
 
     In September 1996, Old Gaylord entered into an agreement with OPUBCO
pursuant to which OPUBCO will exchange certain commercial real estate located in
Dallas, Texas (the "OPUBCO Real Estate") for Old Gaylord's interests in the
Oklahoma City '89ers, a minor league baseball franchise. The Voting Trustees,
who control approximately 62.7% of Old Gaylord's voting power and will control
approximately 39.2% of New Gaylord's voting power immediately following the
Distribution (see "SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND
MANAGEMENT"), also beneficially own a majority of the voting stock of OPUBCO.
Edward L. Gaylord, E.K. Gaylord II, Christine Gaylord Everest, and Martin C.
Dickinson, directors of Old Gaylord, are also directors and officers of OPUBCO.
The OPUBCO Real Estate was appraised at $950,000, which the directors of Old
Gaylord (other than Edward L. Gaylord, E.K. Gaylord II, Christine Gaylord
Everest, Martin C. Dickinson, and Glenn M. Stinchcomb) determined was equal to
or greater than the value of Old Gaylord's interests in the Oklahoma City '89ers
being exchanged. The consummation of this transaction is subject to the approval
of Major League Baseball. Pursuant to the Restructuring, such agreement with
OPUBCO will be assigned to and assumed by New Gaylord.

         SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT
 
     All of the outstanding shares of New Gaylord capital stock are and, until
immediately prior to the Distribution, will continue to be held beneficially and
of record by Old Gaylord. The following table sets forth, as of June 19, 1997 or
such other date as indicated in the footnotes to the table, the beneficial
ownership of Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock or Old Gaylord Class B Common
Stock by each Named Executive Officer of Old Gaylord who will continue to be an
executive officer of New Gaylord following the Distribution, the executive
officers and directors of New Gaylord as a group, and each stockholder known to
management of Old Gaylord to beneficially own more than five percent of the
outstanding Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock or Old Gaylord Class B Common
Stock. Also set forth below are the number of shares of New Gaylord Common Stock
that each person or entity will own immediately after the Distribution, on a pro
forma basis, assuming no change in ownership of the outstanding shares of Old
Gaylord Common Stock.
 
     Each share of Old Gaylord Class B Common Stock is convertible into one
share of Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock. Accordingly, under federal securities
laws governing beneficial ownership, holders of Old Gaylord Class B Common Stock
are deemed to beneficially own the same number of shares of Old Gaylord Class A
Common Stock as shares of Old Gaylord Class B Common Stock beneficially owned.
The beneficial ownership of Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock shown in the table
does not include shares of Old Gaylord Class B Common Stock beneficially owned
by such holder. In accordance with the provisions of Rule 13d-3 of the Exchange
Act, the beneficial ownership of Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock in the table
below includes shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options if such
options are currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days of the date
hereof. The beneficial ownership of New Gaylord Common Stock following the
Distribution shown in the table below does not include shares issuable upon the
exercise of stock options that will be granted upon the conversion of
outstanding Old Gaylord stock options because the number of such shares is
presently indeterminable. See "EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION -- Issuance of New Gaylord
Options and Conversion of Old Gaylord Options." Unless otherwise indicated, Old
Gaylord and New Gaylord believe that the beneficial owner set forth in the table
has sole voting and investment power.

 (3) Edward L. Gaylord, Edith Gaylord Harper, and certain other stockholders of
     Old Gaylord entered into a Voting Trust Agreement, dated as of October 3,
     1990 (the "Voting Trust"), which terminates on October 3, 2000. It is
     currently anticipated that the New Gaylord Common Stock received in the
     Distribution will be subject to the Voting Trust. Edward L. Gaylord, Edith
     Gaylord Harper, Christine Gaylord Everest, E. K. Gaylord II, and Martin C.
     Dickinson, as the voting trustees (the "Voting Trustees") under the Voting
     Trust, have the shared right to vote the 37,727,956 shares of Class B
     Common Stock held in the Voting Trust, and it is currently anticipated that
     the Voting Trustees will have the shared right to vote the 12,575,981
     shares of New Gaylord Common Stock which will be held in the Voting Trust
     following the Distribution. Although the Voting Trustees do not have the
     right to make any investment decisions with respect to the shares
     beneficially owned by the Voting Trust, a stockholder party to the Voting
     Trust needs the written consent of at least 60% of the Voting Trustees (the
     "Trustees' Consent") to withdraw such holder's shares from the Voting Trust
     (the "Trust Withdrawal Restriction").

     beneficially owned by The Oklahoman Foundation (the "Charitable Trust"), a
     charitable trust of which Edward L. Gaylord is a trustee. Edward L. Gaylord

     Withdrawal Restriction) with respect to the shares listed in (a) and (b)

                          DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK
 
GENERAL
 
     In accordance with the Distribution Agreement, prior to the Time of
Distribution, Old Gaylord will cause New Gaylord to amend and restate its
Certificate of Incorporation to, among other things, (i) authorize one class of
common stock of New Gaylord, (ii) increase the currently authorized number of
shares of common stock of New Gaylord to 150,000,000 shares of New Gaylord
Common Stock, (iii) convert the 1,000 shares of New Gaylord common stock,
$100.00 par value, currently outstanding into that number of shares of New
Gaylord Common Stock equal to one-third the total number of shares of Old
Gaylord Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Record Date, and (iv)
authorize 100,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock. Based on the number of shares
of Old Gaylord Common Stock outstanding at July 15, 1997, the 1,000 shares of
New Gaylord common stock would be converted into 32,425,230 shares of New
Gaylord Common Stock, all of which will be distributed to Old Gaylord's
stockholders in the Distribution.
 
COMMON STOCK
 
     Holders of New Gaylord Common Stock will be entitled to one vote for each
share of New Gaylord Common Stock held of record on all matters on which
stockholders are entitled to vote. There will be no cumulative voting rights and
holders of New Gaylord Common Stock will not have preemptive rights. All issued
and outstanding shares of New Gaylord Common Stock to be distributed to Old
Gaylord's stockholders in the Distribution will be validly issued, fully paid,
and nonassessable. Holders of New Gaylord Common Stock will be entitled to such
dividends as may be declared from time to time by the New Gaylord Board of
Directors out of funds legally available for that purpose. See "Dividend
Policy." Upon dissolution, holders of New Gaylord Common Stock will be entitled
to share pro rata in the assets of New Gaylord remaining after payment in full
of all its liabilities and obligations, including payment of the liquidation
preference, if any, of any preferred stock then outstanding.
 
PREFERRED STOCK
 
     The New Gaylord Board of Directors, without further action by the
stockholders, will be authorized to issue up to 100,000,000 shares of Preferred
Stock in one or more series and to designate as to any such series the dividend
rate, redemption prices, preferences on liquidation or dissolution, conversion
rights, voting rights, and any other preferences, and relative, participating,
optional, or other special rights and qualifications, limitations, or
restrictions. The rights of the holders of New Gaylord Common Stock will be
subject to, and may be affected adversely by, the rights of the holders of any
Preferred Stock that may be issued in the future. Issuance of a new series of
Preferred Stock, while providing desirable flexibility in connection with
possible acquisitions or other corporate purposes, could have the effect of
making it more difficult for a third party to acquire, or of discouraging a
third party from acquiring, a majority of the outstanding voting stock of New
Gaylord. New Gaylord has no present plans to issue any shares of Preferred
Stock.
 
NYSE LISTING
 
     The shares of New Gaylord Common Stock to be distributed in the
Distribution have been approved for listing, subject to official notice of
issuance, on the NYSE under the symbol "GET," which is currently the symbol for
the Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock. The current rules of the NYSE effectively
preclude the listing on the NYSE of any securities of an issuer which has issued
securities or taken other corporate action that would have the effect of
nullifying, restricting, or disparately reducing the per share voting rights of
holders of an outstanding class or classes of equity securities registered under
Section 12 of the Exchange Act. New Gaylord does not intend to issue any
additional shares of any class of stock that would make the New Gaylord Common
Stock ineligible for continued listing or cause the New Gaylord Common Stock to
be delisted from the NYSE.
 
                                       57

<PAGE>   61
 
TRANSFER AGENT AND REGISTRAR
 
     New Gaylord intends to appoint SunTrust Bank, Atlanta, Old Gaylord's
current transfer agent, as the Transfer Agent and Registrar for the New Gaylord
Common Stock.
 
REDEMPTION PROVISION
 
     Applicable law requires that the total percentage of shares of New Gaylord
capital stock owned of record or voted by non-United States persons or entities
shall not exceed 25% and contains certain other restrictions on stock ownership.
Under Article IV(D) of the Restated Certificate, New Gaylord has the right to
prohibit the ownership or voting, or to redeem outstanding shares, of its
capital stock if the Board of Directors determines that such prohibition or
redemption is necessary to prevent the loss or secure the reinstatement of any
governmental license or franchise held by New Gaylord or to otherwise comply
with the Communications Act or any other similar legislation affecting New
Gaylord.
 
THE DELAWARE BUSINESS COMBINATION ACT
 
     New Gaylord is a Delaware corporation and, from and after the Time of
Distribution, will be subject to the provisions of Section 203 of the General
Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the "DGCL"). In general, Section 203
provides that a Delaware corporation may not, for a period of three years,
engage in any of a broad range of business combinations with a person or
affiliate or associate of such person who is an "interested stockholder"
(defined generally as a person who, together with affiliates and associates,
owns (or within three years, did own) 15% or more of a corporation's outstanding
voting stock) unless: (a) the transaction resulting in a person's becoming an
interested stockholder, or the business combination, is approved by the board of
directors of the corporation before the person becomes an interested
stockholder; (b) the interested stockholder acquires 85% or more of the
outstanding voting stock of the corporation in the same transaction that makes
it an interested stockholder; or (c) on or after the date the person becomes an
interested stockholder, the business combination is approved by the
corporation's board of directors and by the holders of at least 66 2/3% of the
corporation's outstanding voting stock. New Gaylord's Board of Directors has
approved the acquisition in the Distribution of shares of New Gaylord Common
Stock by the Voting Trustees, collectively, and Edward L. Gaylord, individually,
and thereby exempted such persons from the application of DGCL Section 203.
 
CERTAIN RESTATED CERTIFICATE AND BY-LAW PROVISIONS
 
  General
 
     Certain provisions of the Restated Certificate and New Gaylord's By-laws
(the "By-laws") could have an antitakeover effect. These provisions are intended
to enhance the likelihood of continuity and stability in the composition of the
New Gaylord Board of Directors and in the policies formulated by the New Gaylord
Board of Directors and to discourage certain types of transactions described
below, which may involve an actual or threatened change of control of New
Gaylord. The provisions are designed to reduce the vulnerability of New Gaylord
to an unsolicited proposal for a takeover of New Gaylord that does not
contemplate the acquisition of all of its outstanding shares or an unsolicited
proposal for the restructuring or sale of all or part of New Gaylord. The
provisions are also intended to discourage certain tactics that may be used in
proxy fights. New Gaylord's Board of Directors believes that, as a general rule,
such takeover proposals would not be in the best interests of New Gaylord and
its stockholders.
 
  Classified Board
 
     The Restated Certificate provides for New Gaylord's Board of Directors to
be divided into three classes of directors serving staggered three-year terms.
As a result, approximately one-third of New Gaylord's Board of Directors will be
elected each year. In addition, under the DGCL, the directors on a classified
board may be removed from office only for cause and only by the affirmative vote
of holders of a majority of the outstanding voting stock. The overall effect of
the provisions in the Restated Certificate with respect to the classified Board
may be to render more difficult a change in control of New Gaylord or the
removal of incumbent management.
 
  Special Meetings of Stockholders; Action by Written Consent
 
     The Restated Certificate provides that no action may be taken by
stockholders except at an annual or special meeting of stockholders and
prohibits action by written consent in lieu of a meeting. The Restated
Certificate
 
                                       58

<PAGE>   62
 
provides that special meetings of stockholders of New Gaylord may be called only
by the Chairman or by a majority of the members of New Gaylord's Board of
Directors. This provision will make it more difficult for stockholders to take
action opposed by New Gaylord's Board of Directors.
 
  Advance Notice Requirements for Stockholder Proposals and Director Nominations
 
     The By-laws establish an advance notice procedure for the nomination, other
than by or at the direction of New Gaylord's Board of Directors or a committee
thereof, of candidates for election as directors as well as for other
stockholder proposals to be considered at stockholders' meetings. These
limitations on stockholder proposals do not restrict a stockholder's right to
include proposals in New Gaylord's annual proxy materials pursuant to rules
promulgated under the Exchange Act. The purpose of requiring advance notice is
to afford New Gaylord's Board of Directors an opportunity to consider the
qualification of the proposed nominees or the merits of other stockholder
proposals and, to the extent deemed necessary or desirable by New Gaylord's
Board of Directors, to inform stockholders about those matters.
 
  Restated Certificate and By-laws Amendments
 
     The Restated Certificate requires the affirmative vote of the holders of at
least 66 2/3% of the voting power of New Gaylord's capital stock in order to
amend certain of its provisions, including any provisions concerning (i) the
classified board, (ii) the amendment of the By-laws, (iii) any proposed
compromise or arrangement between New Gaylord and its creditors, (iv) the
authority of stockholders to act by written consent or to call a special
meeting, (v) the liability of directors, and (vi) the percentage of votes
represented by capital stock required to approve certain amendments to the
Restated Certificate. These voting requirements will make it more difficult for
stockholders to make changes in the Restated Certificate which would be designed
to facilitate the exercise of control over New Gaylord. In addition, the
requirement of approval by at least a 66 2/3% stockholder vote will enable the
holders of a minority of the voting securities of New Gaylord to prevent the
holders of a majority or more of such securities from amending such provisions.
In addition, the Restated Certificate provides that the By-laws may only be
amended by stockholders by the affirmative vote of 66 2/3% of New Gaylord's
outstanding voting stock. After giving effect to the Distribution, the directors
and executive officers of New Gaylord, together with the Voting Trust, will hold
in the aggregate approximately 41.1% of the voting power of New Gaylord. See
"SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT."
 
  Indemnification and Insurance
 
     Pursuant to authority conferred by DGCL Section 102(b)(7), the Restated
Certificate contains a provision providing that no director of New Gaylord shall
be liable to it or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary
duty as a director, except to the extent that such exemption from liability or
limitation thereof is not permitted under the DGCL as then in effect or as the
same may be amended. This provision is intended to eliminate the risk that a
director might incur personal liability to New Gaylord or its stockholders for
breach of the duty of care.
 
     DGCL Section 145 contains provisions permitting, and in some situations
requiring, Delaware corporations, such as New Gaylord, to provide
indemnification to their officers and directors for losses and litigation
expenses incurred in connection with their service to the corporation in those
capacities. The By-laws of New Gaylord contain provisions requiring
indemnification by New Gaylord of, and advancement of expenses to, its directors
and officers to the fullest extent permitted by law. Among other things, these
provisions provide indemnification for New Gaylord's officers and directors
against liabilities for judgments in and settlements of lawsuits and other
proceedings and for the advance and payment of fees and expenses reasonably
incurred by the director or officer in defense of any such lawsuit or
proceeding.
 
     New Gaylord intends to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any
person who is or was a director or officer of New Gaylord, or is now or was a
director or officer of New Gaylord serving at the request of New Gaylord as a
director, officer, employee, or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint
venture, trust, employee benefit plan, or other enterprise, against any
liability asserted against him and incurred by him in any such capacity, or
arising out of his status as such, whether or not New Gaylord would have the
power or the obligation to indemnify him against such liability under the
provisions of the By-laws.

                    REPORT OF INDEPENDENT PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS
 
To New Gaylord Entertainment Company:
 
     We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of New Gaylord
Entertainment Company (a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of
Gaylord Entertainment Company) and its subsidiaries as of December 31, 1996 and
1995, and the related consolidated statements of income, stockholder's equity
and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31,
1996. These financial statements are the responsibility of New Gaylord's
management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial
statements based on our audits.
 
     We conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing
standards. 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.
 
     The accompanying financial statements of New Gaylord Entertainment Company
have been prepared from the separate records of New Gaylord maintained by
Gaylord Entertainment Company and may not be necessarily indicative of the
conditions that would have existed or the results of operations if New Gaylord
had been operated as an unaffiliated company. Portions of certain expenses
represent corporate expenses of Gaylord Entertainment Company as a whole for
which Gaylord Entertainment Company maintains the related assets or liabilities.
 
     In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly,
in all material respects, the financial position of New Gaylord Entertainment
Company and its subsidiaries as of December 31, 1996 and 1995, and the results
of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three years in the
period ended December 31, 1996 in conformity with generally accepted accounting
principles.

               NEW GAYLORD ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARIES
          (A WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF GAYLORD ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY)
                   NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
                 (AMOUNTS IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT PER SHARE DATA)
 
1.  DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:
 
     New Gaylord Entertainment Company ("New Gaylord"), formerly Gaylord
Broadcasting Company, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Gaylord Entertainment
Company ("Old Gaylord"). New Gaylord is a diversified entertainment and
communications company operating, through its subsidiaries, principally in three
business segments: hospitality and attractions, broadcasting and music, and
cable networks. Subsequent to December 31, 1996, Old Gaylord entered into a
definitive agreement with Westinghouse Electric Corporation ("Westinghouse")
whereby substantially all of the assets and liabilities of the cable networks
segment will be acquired by Westinghouse as further described in Note 2. New
Gaylord sold its cable television systems segment (the "Systems") on September
29, 1995. Prior to the sale, the Systems were accounted for as discontinued
operations in the accompanying consolidated financial statements as further
described in Note 4.
 
HOSPITALITY AND ATTRACTIONS
 
     New Gaylord owns and operates the Opryland entertainment complex in
Nashville, Tennessee and various other Nashville-based tourist attractions. The
Opryland complex primarily includes the Opryland Hotel, the Opryland theme park
and the Grand Ole Opry. New Gaylord also owns a minority limited partnership
interest in Bass Pro, L.P. ("Bass Pro"), which is a leading retailer of premium
outdoor sporting goods and fishing products.
 
BROADCASTING AND MUSIC
 
     At December 31, 1996, New Gaylord owned and operated two broadcast
television stations: KTVT (Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas) and KSTW (Tacoma-Seattle,
Washington). In January 1997, New Gaylord announced it had entered into a
definitive agreement to sell KSTW as further described in Note 2. New Gaylord
sold its television station KHTV (Houston, Texas) in January 1996 as further
described in Note 3. New Gaylord affiliated KTVT and KSTW with CBS, Inc. during
1995. In addition, New Gaylord owns and operates three radio stations in
Nashville, Tennessee and a music publishing company.
 
CABLE NETWORKS
 
     New Gaylord owns The Nashville Network ("TNN") which is a national basic
cable television network carried by substantially all United States cable
operators, as well as by many Canadian cable services. In addition, New Gaylord
operates and owns 67% of the outstanding stock of Country Music Television, Inc.
("CMT"), a country music video cable network. CMT Europe, a country music video
cable network established to provide service to Europe, was launched in October
1992. CMT expanded into the Asia-Pacific region in October 1994 and into Latin
America in April 1995.
 
BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
     The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of New Gaylord
and all of its majority owned subsidiaries. All assets, liabilities, revenues
and expenses in the accompanying financial statements have been derived from the
separate records or identified costs maintained by Old Gaylord with the
exception of the allocation of certain expenses incurred by Old Gaylord on
behalf of New Gaylord. These allocated expenses primarily consist of interest
charged to New Gaylord (which Old Gaylord allocates based on the amounts
advanced to each of its business segments) and certain corporate overhead
expenses of Old Gaylord (which Old Gaylord allocates based on the revenues of
each of its business segments). Management estimates that such interest charges
and other allocated expenses approximate the expenses which would have been
incurred had New Gaylord operated on a stand-alone basis. However, the
consolidated financial information included herein may not necessarily reflect
the consolidated results of operations, financial position, changes in
stockholder's equity
 
                                       F-7

<PAGE>   70
 
and cash flows of New Gaylord in the future or what such financial information
would have been had New Gaylord been a separate, stand-alone entity during the
periods presented. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have
been eliminated in consolidation.
 
PROGRAM RIGHTS
 
     New Gaylord acquires exhibition rights for certain theatrical and
television programs. The program rights are recorded at the gross contract
amount when certain conditions are met, including availability of the program
for broadcast, and are amortized over the shorter of the estimated number of
program showings or the contract periods. Program rights are continually
evaluated for impairment based upon undiscounted cash flows to be derived from
related program rights. The current portion of program rights represents those
rights currently available for telecast which will be amortized in the
succeeding year. New Gaylord had commitments for program rights and related
program contract payables of $8,850 and $32,507 at December 31, 1996 and 1995,
respectively, which were not available for telecast until a future date. These
amounts are not included in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
 
     During 1995, New Gaylord recorded a pre-tax charge to operations of $13,302
for the write-down to net realizable value of certain program rights. The
write-down is primarily related to excess program rights resulting from the
affiliation of KTVT and KSTW with CBS.
 
PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT
 
     Property and equipment are stated at cost, including interest on funds
borrowed to finance the construction of major capital additions, and are
depreciated or amortized using straight-line and accelerated methods over the
following estimated useful lives:
 

<TABLE>
<S>                                                           <C>
Buildings...................................................  20-40 years
Leasehold and land improvements.............................     20 years
Theme park rides and attractions............................  15-20 years
Furniture, equipment and vehicles...........................   3-10 years
</TABLE>

 
     Effective January 1, 1994, New Gaylord changed to the straight-line method
of depreciation for substantially all newly acquired property. Maintenance and
repairs are charged to expense as incurred.
 
INTANGIBLE ASSETS
 
     Intangible assets consist primarily of goodwill which is amortized using
the straight-line method over a period not to exceed 40 years. New Gaylord
continually evaluates whether later events and circumstances have occurred that
indicate the remaining balance of goodwill may not be recoverable. In evaluating
possible impairment, New Gaylord uses the most appropriate method of evaluation
given the circumstances surrounding the particular acquisition, which has
generally been an estimate of the related business unit's undiscounted operating
income before interest and taxes over the remaining life of the goodwill.
 
     Amortization expense related to intangible assets for 1996, 1995 and 1994
was $3,212, $2,445 and $2,118, respectively. At December 31, 1996 and 1995,
accumulated amortization of intangible assets was $14,817 and $15,304,
respectively.
 
INVESTMENTS
 
     Investments consist primarily of the minority interest in Bass Pro, which
distributes its products through retail centers and an extensive mail order
catalog operation. Bass Pro also owns and operates a resort hotel and
development in Southern Missouri. New Gaylord accounts for the Bass Pro
investment using the equity method of accounting. New Gaylord's original
investment exceeded its share of the underlying equity in the net assets of Bass
Pro by approximately $36,000, which is being amortized on a straight-line basis
over 40 years. New Gaylord's recorded investment in Bass Pro was $62,852 and
$62,537 at December 31, 1996 and 1995, respectively.
 
                                       F-8

<PAGE>   71
 
OTHER ASSETS
 
     Other current and long-term assets consist primarily of program
inventories, merchandise inventories, deferred preopening expenses and prepaid
expenses. Program inventories, $20,175 and $22,484 in 1996 and 1995,
respectively, are amortized at a rate based upon the broadcast periods of the
programs and the revenues estimated to be earned over these periods, and are
continually evaluated for impairment based upon undiscounted cash flows to be
derived from the related programming assets. Inventories of $15,436 and $15,111
in 1996 and 1995, respectively, consist primarily of merchandise held for resale
and are priced at the lower of average cost or market. To provide for a better
matching of revenues and expenses, New Gaylord defers expenses prior to a new
venture becoming operational. These deferred preopening expenses, $12,335 and
$7,387 in 1996 and 1995, respectively, are amortized on a straight-line basis
over five years. Prepaid expenses were $11,784 and $10,295 in 1996 and 1995,
respectively.
 
ACCOUNTS PAYABLE AND ACCRUED LIABILITIES
 
     Accounts payable and accrued liabilities at December 31 consisted of:

                                                              -------      -------
          Total accounts payable and accrued liabilities....  $84,276      $94,748
                                                              =======      =======
</TABLE>

 
     Other accrued liabilities included approximately $15,000 in 1995 for the
liabilities related to the disposal of New Gaylord's 14% limited partnership
interest in the Fiesta Texas theme park, as further described in Note 3. Accrued
royalties consist primarily of music royalties and licensing fees at New
Gaylord's television stations, cable networks and music publishing business.
Deferred revenues consist primarily of deposits on advance room bookings at the
Opryland Hotel and advance ticket sales at the Opryland theme park and the Grand
Ole Opry.
 
PAYABLE TO OLD GAYLORD
 
     Old Gaylord has a centralized cash management system whereby cash is made
available to New Gaylord for normal operating activities when needed and excess
cash is transferred back to Old Gaylord when available. The net effect of these
cash transactions is included in the payable to Old Gaylord in the consolidated
balance sheets and is presented as borrowings from (repayments to) Old Gaylord
in the consolidated statements of cash flows.
 
STOCK PLANS AND STOCK BASED COMPENSATION
 
     Old Gaylord provides stock option and incentive plans in which certain of
New Gaylord's key employees are eligible to participate. Statement of Financial
Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 123, "Accounting for Stock-Based
Compensation," encourages, but does not require, companies to record
compensation cost for stock-based employee compensation plans at fair value. New
Gaylord has chosen to continue to account for stock-based compensation using the
intrinsic value method as prescribed in Accounting Principles Board Opinion No.
25, "Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees." In addition, based on the number
of the options outstanding and the historical and expected future trends of
factors affecting valuation of those options, management believes that any
compensation cost which would be expected on New Gaylord's financial statements
under SFAS No. 123 attributable to options granted is immaterial.
 
RETIREMENT PLANS AND POSTRETIREMENT BENEFITS OTHER THAN PENSIONS
 
     Old Gaylord provides a noncontributory defined benefit pension plan in
which substantially all of New Gaylord's employees are eligible to participate
upon meeting the pension plan's participation requirements. The benefits are
based on years of service and compensation levels.
 
                                       F-9

<PAGE>   72
 
     In addition, Old Gaylord has contributory retirement savings plans in which
substantially all of New Gaylord's employees are eligible to participate. Old
Gaylord contributes an amount equal to the lesser of one-half of the amount of
the employee's contribution or 3% of the employee's salary.
 
     Old Gaylord also sponsors unfunded defined benefit postretirement health
care and life insurance plans for certain of New Gaylord's employees. Under this
plan, Old Gaylord contributes toward the cost of health insurance benefits and
contributes the full cost of providing life insurance benefits. In order to be
eligible for these postretirement benefits, an employee must retire after
attainment of age 55 and completion of 15 years of service, or attainment of age
65 and completion of 10 years of service.
 
     All of the plans discussed above are administered and funded by Old Gaylord
which also maintains the related assets and liabilities on its records.
 
INCOME TAXES
 
     New Gaylord's operations are included in the consolidated income tax return
filed by Old Gaylord and the current liability for federal income taxes payable
is recorded by Old Gaylord. The provision for income taxes in New Gaylord's
consolidated financial statements has been calculated on a separate tax return
basis.
 
     In accordance with SFAS No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes", New Gaylord
establishes deferred tax liabilities and assets based on the difference between
the financial statement and income tax carrying amounts of assets and
liabilities using existing tax rates.
 
FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
 
     Estimated fair values and carrying amounts of New Gaylord's financial
instruments at December 31, 1996 and 1995 are as follows:
 

<TABLE>
<CAPTION>
                                                       1996                  1995
                                                -------------------   -------------------

                                                 VALUE      AMOUNT     VALUE      AMOUNT
                                                --------   --------   --------   --------
<S>                                             <C>        <C>        <C>        <C>
Long-term notes and interest receivable.......  $187,279   $184,138   $164,792   $163,158
                                                ========   ========   ========   ========
</TABLE>

 
     The fair value estimates were determined using discounted cash flow
analyses. The discount rate was determined based upon similar instruments. The
carrying amount of short-term financial instruments (cash, trade receivables,
accounts payable and accrued liabilities) approximates fair value due to the
short maturity of those instruments. Credit risk on trade receivables is
minimized by the large and diverse nature of New Gaylord's customer base.
 
ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES
 
     The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally
accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and
assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and
disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial
statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported
period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
2.  SUBSEQUENT EVENTS:
 
     During January 1997, New Gaylord entered into a definitive agreement to
sell its Tacoma-Seattle, Washington, television station, KSTW, for $160,000 in
cash to Cox Broadcasting, Inc., which subsequently assigned its rights under the
agreement to Paramount Stations Group, Inc. The transaction requires the
approval of the Federal Communications Commission and will result in the
recognition of a gain.
 
     On February 9, 1997, Old Gaylord entered into an agreement (the "Merger
Agreement") with Westinghouse and G Acquisition Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary
of Westinghouse ("Sub"), pursuant to which Sub will be merged (the "Merger")
with and into Old Gaylord, with Old Gaylord continuing as the surviving
corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Westinghouse. Prior to the Merger,
Old Gaylord will be restructured (the
 
                                      F-10

<PAGE>   73
 
"Restructuring") so that the assets and liabilities that are part of Old
Gaylord's hospitality, attractions, music, television and radio businesses,
including all of Old Gaylord's long-term debt, as well as the Country Music
Television cable networks outside of the United States and Canada ("CMT
International") and the management of and option to acquire Z Music, Inc. ("Z
Music"), will be transferred to or retained by New Gaylord. As a result of the
Restructuring and the Merger, substantially all of the assets of Old Gaylord's
cable networks business, consisting primarily of TNN and the U.S. and Canadian
operations of CMT, and certain other related businesses (collectively, the
"Cable Networks Business") and certain liabilities to the extent that they arise
out of the Cable Networks Business, will be held by Old Gaylord or one of its
subsidiaries (other than New Gaylord or its subsidiaries after giving effect to
the Restructuring) and will be acquired by Westinghouse in the Merger.
 
     Following the Restructuring and on the day prior to the effective time of
the Merger, Old Gaylord will distribute (the "Distribution") pro rata to its
stockholders all of the outstanding capital stock of New Gaylord. As a result of
the Distribution, each holder of record of Class A Common Stock, $.01 par value
("Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock"), and Class B Common Stock, $.01 par value
("Old Gaylord Class B Common Stock," and together with Old Gaylord Class A
Common Stock, "Old Gaylord Common Stock"), of Old Gaylord on the record date for
the Distribution will receive a number of shares of Common Stock, $.01 par
value, of New Gaylord ("New Gaylord Common Stock") equal to one-third the number
of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock held by such holder, and cash in lieu of
any fractional shares of New Gaylord Common Stock.
 
     In the Merger, Old Gaylord's stockholders will receive shares of
Westinghouse common stock valued at the agreed upon transaction price of
$1,550,000, at a per share consideration to be determined in accordance with the
Merger Agreement that will be based upon the market price of the Westinghouse
common stock and the number of outstanding shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock.
The Distribution and the Merger are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a
number of conditions, including Old Gaylord stockholder approval of the Merger
and certain regulatory approvals, including an Internal Revenue Service ruling
that the Distribution, the Merger, and certain aspects of the Restructuring will
be tax-free transactions. The Distribution and the Merger are expected to occur
during 1997.
 
     In connection with the Merger, New Gaylord and Old Gaylord (or one or more
of their respective subsidiaries) plan to enter into agreements pertaining to
their ongoing business relationship. In addition, each party will agree not to
compete with the other in certain areas of the cable networks industry.
 
3.  ACQUISITIONS AND DIVESTITURES:
 
     In January 1996, New Gaylord sold its Houston, Texas, television station,
KHTV, to Tribune Broadcasting Company for $97,800, including certain working
capital and other adjustments of approximately $4,300. The sale resulted in a
pretax gain of $73,850 which is included in other gains (losses) in the
consolidated statements of income. The sale of the television station included
program rights of $32,235 and related program contracts payable of $23,766.
 
     In December 1995 and December 1994, New Gaylord recorded pretax losses of
$5,529 and $26,000, respectively, included in other gains (losses) in the
consolidated statements of income, to reflect losses related to the January 1996
disposal of its 14% limited partnership interest in the Fiesta Texas theme park.
The charges were based on the permanent impairment in the value of the
investment and New Gaylord's guarantee on certain indebtedness related to the
original construction of Fiesta Texas. New Gaylord paid $12,976 to transfer its
partnership interest and related obligations to a subsidiary of USAA, the
majority investor, in January 1996. In connection with New Gaylord's termination
of its interest in Fiesta Texas, New Gaylord was released from the loan
guarantee.
 
     Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. ("Sinclair") purchased the non-license
assets of New Gaylord's WVTV television station in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in May
1994. Total proceeds from the sale of the non-license assets were $18,231,
resulting in a pretax gain of $10,689, which is included in other gains (losses)
in the 1994 consolidated statement of income. Sinclair retained an option to
purchase the license assets of WVTV which it subsequently assigned to Glencairn,
Ltd., which exercised the option and purchased the license assets in July 1995.
 
                                      F-11

<PAGE>   74
 
4.  DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS:
 
     On September 29, 1995, New Gaylord completed the sale of the Systems to CCT
Holdings Corp. ("CCTH"). Net proceeds, after a working capital adjustment of
$5,512, consisted of $198,800 in cash and a 10-year note receivable with a face
amount of $165,688. The note receivable and related accrued interest are
included in long-term notes and interest receivable in the accompanying
consolidated balance sheets in the amount of $176,138 and $155,658, for 1996 and
1995, respectively, net of a $15,000 discount in both years to reflect the note
at fair value based upon financial instruments of comparable credit risk and
interest rates. The note is currently classified as held to maturity and bears
interest at an initial rate of 12% which increases to 15% in September 2000 and
2% each year thereafter with principal and interest payable at maturity in 2005.
New Gaylord recorded $20,479 and $4,970 of interest income related to the note
receivable during 1996 and 1995, respectively. Immediately prior to the sale,
New Gaylord purchased the remaining 2.9% minority interest in the Systems for
$10,585. In addition, New Gaylord received the contractual right to 15% of the
net distributable proceeds, as defined, from certain future asset sales by the
buyer of the Systems. A significant stockholder and certain directors of Old
Gaylord own, indirectly, less than a 5% interest in CCTH.
 
     New Gaylord recorded a gain in 1995 on the sale of the Systems of $42,998,
net of applicable income taxes of $30,824. The Systems have been accounted for
as discontinued operations and, accordingly, the Systems' losses subsequent to
the November 1993 measurement date, including interest expense on debt that can
be specifically attributed to the Systems, were deferred and are reflected as a
reduction in the gain on the sale of the Systems.
 
     Selected results of operations related to the Systems prior to their sale
are summarized below for the period ended September 29, 1995 and the year ended
December 31, 1994 :

               NEW GAYLORD ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARIES
          (A WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF GAYLORD ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY)
              NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
                                  (UNAUDITED)
                 (AMOUNTS IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT PER SHARE DATA)
 
1.  BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
     New Gaylord Entertainment Company ("New Gaylord"), formerly Gaylord
Broadcasting Company, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Gaylord Entertainment
Company ("Old Gaylord"). The unaudited condensed consolidated financial
statements include the accounts of New Gaylord and its subsidiaries and have
been prepared by New Gaylord pursuant to the rules and regulations of the
Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures
normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with
generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant
to such rules and regulations, although New Gaylord believes that the
disclosures are adequate to make the financial information presented not
misleading. It is suggested that these unaudited condensed consolidated
financial statements be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated
financial statements and notes thereto of New Gaylord as of December 31, 1996
and 1995 and for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 1996.
In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary for a fair statement of
the results of operations for the interim periods have been included. However,
the consolidated financial information included herein may not necessarily
reflect the consolidated results of operations, financial position, and cash
flows of New Gaylord had New Gaylord been a separate, stand-alone entity during
the periods presented. The results of operations for such interim periods are
not necessarily indicative of the results for a full year.
 
2.  WESTINGHOUSE MERGER
 
     On February 9, 1997, Old Gaylord entered into an agreement (the "Merger
Agreement") with Westinghouse and G Acquisition Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary
of Westinghouse ("Sub"), pursuant to which Sub will be merged (the "Merger")
with and into Old Gaylord, with Old Gaylord continuing as the surviving
corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Westinghouse. Prior to the Merger,
Old Gaylord will be restructured (the "Restructuring") so that certain assets
and liabilities that are part of Old Gaylord's hospitality, attractions, music,
television and radio businesses, including all of Old Gaylord's long-term debt,
as well as the Country Music Television cable networks outside of the United
States and Canada ("CMT International") and the management of and option to
acquire 95% of Z Music, Inc. ("Z Music"), will be transferred to or retained by
New Gaylord. As a result of the Restructuring and the Merger, substantially all
of the assets of Old Gaylord's cable networks business, consisting primarily of
TNN and the U.S. and Canadian operations of CMT, and certain other related
businesses (collectively, the "Cable Networks Business") and certain liabilities
to the extent that they arise out of the Cable Networks Business, will be held
by Old Gaylord or one of its subsidiaries (other than New Gaylord or its
subsidiaries after giving effect to the Restructuring) and will be acquired by
Westinghouse in the Merger.
 
     Following the Restructuring and on the day prior to the effective time of
the Merger, Old Gaylord will distribute (the "Distribution") pro rata to its
stockholders all of the outstanding capital stock of New Gaylord. As a result of
the Distribution, each holder of record of Class A Common Stock, $.01 par value
("Old Gaylord Class A Common Stock"), and Class B Common Stock, $.01 par value
("Old Gaylord Class B Common Stock," and together with Old Gaylord Class A
Common Stock, "Old Gaylord Common Stock"), of Old Gaylord on the record date for
the Distribution will receive a number of shares of Common Stock, $.01 par
value, of New Gaylord ("New Gaylord Common Stock") equal to one-third the number
of shares of Old Gaylord Common Stock held by such holder. Cash will be
distributed in lieu of any fractional shares of New Gaylord Common Stock.
 
     In the Merger, Old Gaylord's stockholders will receive shares of
Westinghouse common stock valued at the agreed upon transaction price of
$1,550,000, at a per share consideration to be determined in accordance with the
Merger Agreement that will be based upon the average market price of the
Westinghouse common stock for a period ending shortly before the date on which
the Merger occurs and the number of outstanding shares of Old
 
                                      F-19

<PAGE>   82
 
Gaylord Common Stock prior to the Merger, subject to certain limitations and
termination rights contained in the Merger Agreement. The Distribution and the
Merger are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions,
including certain regulatory approvals, including an Internal Revenue Service
ruling that the Distribution, the Merger, and certain aspects of the
Restructuring will be tax-free transactions. The Distribution and the Merger are
currently expected to occur during the third quarter of 1997.
 
     In connection with the Merger, New Gaylord and Old Gaylord (or one or more
of their respective subsidiaries) plan to enter into agreements pertaining to
their ongoing business relationship. In addition, each party will agree not to
compete with the other in certain areas of the cable networks industry.
 
3.  SALE OF TELEVISION STATION
 
     In June 1997, New Gaylord sold KSTW, its Tacoma-Seattle, Washington
television station, for $160,000 in cash. The sale resulted in a pretax gain of
$144,259, which is included in other gains (losses) in the condensed
consolidated statements of income. New Gaylord utilized the net proceeds from
the sale to reduce the payable to Old Gaylord.

     The accompanying Unaudited Pro Forma Consolidated Statements of Income for
the six-month period ended June 30, 1997 and for the year ended December 31,
1996 are presented as if the Restructuring, the Recapitalization, the

and January 1, 1996, respectively. The Unaudited Pro Forma Consolidated Balance
Sheet is presented as if the Transactions had occurred on June 30, 1997. These
pro forma financial statements are presented for illustrative purposes only and

that would have been obtained if the Transactions had occurred on such dates or
that may be realized in the future. The results of operations for the interim
period are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. The pro
forma information should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial
statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere herein.

 (1) Old Gaylord acquired the assets of Word on January 7, 1997. Old Gaylord
     will transfer the assets and liabilities of Word to New Gaylord as part of
     the Restructuring. The pro forma adjustments reflect Word's results of
     operations subsequent to Word's acquisition date.
 (2) The pro forma adjustments reflect the effects of the Restructuring (other
     than the transfer of the assets and liabilities of Word) as if it had
     occurred on January 1, 1997. These adjustments assign Old Gaylord's
     external long-term debt and operating activities to New Gaylord and remove
     New Gaylord's intercompany debt balance payable to Old Gaylord. Interest
     expense has been adjusted to reflect the differences in debt levels and
     related interest rates and to remove intercompany interest charges.
 (3) The pro forma adjustments reflect the effects of the Merger as if it
     occurred on January 1, 1997.
 (4) These pro forma adjustments reflect the removal of the results of
     operations of the Cable Networks Business from New Gaylord's results of
     operations.
 (5) These pro forma adjustments reflect corporate expenses historically
     allocated to the Cable Networks Business which will be absorbed by New
     Gaylord.
 (6) This pro forma adjustment reflects the reversal of minority interest
     related to Westinghouse's 33% ownership of CMT International that will be
     eliminated as a result of the Restructuring and the Merger.
 (7) The pro forma adjustments exclude certain non-recurring expenses which will
     be incurred in connection with or due to the Transactions. The
     non-recurring expenses are estimated to be approximately $30 million.
 (8) In connection with the Merger, New Gaylord and Old Gaylord (or one or more
     of their respective subsidiaries) will enter into a number of agreements
     pertaining to their ongoing business relationship. The financial impact of
     such agreements to New Gaylord is not expected to be material and has not
     been reflected in the pro forma adjustments.
 (9) Reflects the adjustment of income tax expense to the expected effective tax
     rates.
(10) The pro forma weighted average shares outstanding assume that the capital
     structure subsequent to the Recapitalization and the Distribution was in
     place as of January 1, 1997, and gives effect to the dilution related to
     common stock equivalents.

proposed Revolving Credit Borrowing comprised of LIBOR Loans Administrative
Lender shall promptly notify each Lender of the applicable interest rate under
Section 2.6. Each Lender shall, before 12:00 noon (Dallas time) on the date of
such Revolving Credit Borrowing, make available to Administrative Lender at
Administrative Lender's Principal Office, in same day funds, such Lender's Pro
Rata Part of such Borrowing. After Administrative Lender's receipt of such funds
and upon fulfillment of the applicable conditions set forth in Sections 2.16 and
2.17, Administrative Lender will make such funds available to Borrower by
depositing such funds received in the general deposit account of Borrower with
Administrative Lender.

         (b) Each Swing Line Borrowing shall be made on notice, given not later
than 1:30 p.m. (Dallas time) on the date of the proposed Swing Line Borrowing,
by Borrower to Swing Line Bank and Administrative Lender. Each such notice of a
Swing Line Borrowing (a "Notice of Swing 


                                     - 23 -



<PAGE>   30


Line Borrowing") shall be by telephone, telex or telecopier, specifying therein
the requested (i) date of such Borrowing fand (ii) amount of such Borrowing. If,
in its sole discretion, it elects to make the requested Swing Line Loan, Swing
Line Bank will make the amount thereof available to Administrative Lender at
Administrative Lender's Principal Office, in same day funds. After
Administrative Lender's receipt of such funds and upon fulfillment of the
applicable conditions set forth in Sections 2.16 and 2.17, Administrative Lender
will make such funds available to Borrower by depositing such funds received in
the general deposit account of Borrower with Administrative Lender. Forthwith
upon demand by Swing Line Bank and in any event upon the making of the request
or the granting of the consent specified by Section 6.2 to authorize
Administrative Lender to declare the Loans due and payable pursuant to the
provisions of Section 6.2, each Lender, including Swing Line Bank,
notwithstanding the failure of Borrower at such time to satisfy each condition
specified in Section 2.17, shall make, by 12:00 noon (Dallas time) on the first
Business Day following receipt by such Lender of notice from Swing Line Bank, a
Revolving Credit Loan which is a Domestic Loan in an amount equal to the product
of (x) such Lender's Specified Percentage multiplied by (y) the outstanding
principal amount of such Swing Line Loan, and the proceeds of such Revolving
Credit Loans will be applied by Administrative Lender to repay the outstanding
Swing Line Loans.

         (c) Anything in subsection (a) above to the contrary notwithstanding,
Borrower may not select LIBOR Loans for any Borrowing if (i) the aggregate
amount of such Borrowing is less than $5,000,000, or (ii) the obligation of
Lenders to make LIBOR Loans shall then be suspended pursuant to Section 2.9.

         (d) Each Notice of Borrowing and Notice of Swing Line Borrowing shall
be irrevocable and binding on Borrower. In the case of any Borrowing that the
related Notice of Borrowing specifies is to be comprised of LIBOR Loans,
Borrower shall indemnify each Lender against any loss, cost or expense incurred
by such Lender as a result of any failure of Borrower to borrow any LIBOR Loans
after a Notice of Borrowing has been given in accordance with Section 2.2(a),
including, without limitation, any loss (excluding loss of anticipated profits),
cost or expense incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of
deposits or other funds acquired by such Lender to fund the Loan to be made by
such Lender as part of such Borrowing when such Loan, as a result of such
failure, is not made on such date. The obligations of Borrower under this
Section 2.2(d) shall survive termination of this Agreement.

         (e) Unless Administrative Lender shall have received notice from a
Lender prior to the date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make
available to Administrative Lender such Lender's Pro Rata Part, if any, of such
Borrowing, Administrative Lender may assume that such Lender has made such
portion available to Administrative Lender on the date of such Borrowing in
accordance with subsection (a) or (b) of this Section 2.2 and Administrative
Lender may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to Borrower on such
date a corresponding amount. If and to the extent that such Lender shall not
have so made such Pro Rata Part available to Administrative Lender, such Lender
and Borrower severally agree to repay to Administrative Lender forthwith on
demand such corresponding amount together with interest thereon, for each 


                                     - 24 -



<PAGE>   31


day from the date such amount is made available to Borrower until the date such
amount is repaid to Administrative Lender, at (i) in the case of Borrower, the
interest rate applicable at the time to Loans comprising such Borrowing and (ii)
in the case of such Lender, the Federal Funds Rate. If such Lender shall repay
to Administrative Lender such corresponding amount, such amount so repaid shall
constitute such Lender's Loan as part of such Borrowing for purposes of this
Agreement.

         (f)  The failure of any Lender to make the Loans to be made by it
as part of any Borrowing shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation,
if any, hereunder to make its Loan on the date of such Borrowing, but no Lender
shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make the Loan to be
made by such other Lender on the date of any Borrowing.

         2.3. Fees.

         (a)  Commitment Fee. Subject to the provisions of Section 8.13, 
Borrower shall pay to Administrative Lender, for the ratable account of Lenders,

</TABLE>


The Commitment Fee shall be payable quarterly in arrears on each Quarterly Date,
commencing on the first Quarterly Date occurring after the Agreement Date, and
on the Termination Date. For purposes of calculation of the Commitment Fee, (i)
outstanding Swing Line Loans from time to time will not reduce the unused
portion of the Total Commitment and (ii) outstanding Letters of 


                                     - 25 -



<PAGE>   32


Credit from time to time will reduce the unused portion of the Total Commitment.
The Commitment Fee shall be adjusted on each Adjustment Date if determined based
on the (a) Funded Debt to Capitalization Ratio, according to the performance of
Borrower for the most recent fiscal quarter (or fiscal year with respect to any
adjustment based on fiscal year-end December 31 financial statements) or (b) the
Index Debt Rating, according to the most recent determination of the Index Debt
Rating. For purposes of the foregoing, (a) if the Index Debt Rating and the
Funded Debt to Capitalization Ratio are in different categories, the Commitment
Fee shall be determined on whichever of the Index Debt Rating or the Funded Debt
to Capitalization Ratio falls within the superior (or numerically lower)
category, (b) if the Commitment Fee is determined based on the Funded Debt to
Capitalization Ratio and the financial statements (and related Officer's
Certificate) required by Sections 3.2(a) and 3.2(b), as applicable, are not
received by Administrative Lender by the date required, the Commitment Fee shall
be determined as if the Funded Debt to Capitalization Ratio is greater than or
equal to 0.40 to 1 until such time as such financial statements are received,
and (c) if the Index Debt Rating established by Moody's and S&P shall fall
within a different category, the Commitment Fee shall be determined by reference
to whichever shall be the superior (or numerically lower) category.

         (b) Closing Fee. Subject to the provisions of Section 8.13, Borrower
agrees to pay to each Lender a closing fee as separately agreed with each
Lender. Such fee shall be payable on the Agreement Date, and, subject to Section
8.13, fully-earned when due and non-refundable when paid.

         (c) Administrative Lender's Fee. Subject to the provisions of Section
8.13, Borrower shall pay to Administrative Lender for its own account such fees
as are set forth in the separate letter dated August 19, 1997 from
Administrative Lender to Borrower.

         2.4.     Reduction of Total Commitment.

         (a) Voluntary. Borrower shall have the right, without payment of any
premium or penalty, on any Quarterly Date upon not less than ten (10) Business
Days' notice to Administrative Lender (if telephonic, to be confirmed by telex
or in writing on or before the date of reduction or termination) prior to such
Quarterly Date, which shall promptly notify Lenders, to terminate or reduce the
Total Commitment, in whole or in part, provided that (i) each partial
termination shall be in an aggregate amount which is an integral multiple of
$25,000,000, (ii) no such reduction in the Total Commitment shall cause any
LIBOR Loan to be repaid prior to the last day of the Interest Period for such
LIBOR Loan and (iii) no such reduction in the Total Commitment shall cause the
Total Commitment to be in an amount less than the aggregate principal amount of
all Reimbursement Obligations then outstanding. Once reduced or terminated, the
Total Commitment may not be increased.

         (b) Mandatory. On the Termination Date, the Total Commitment shall
automatically be reduced to zero.

                                     - 26 -



<PAGE>   33


         (c) Pro Rata. Each reduction in the Total Commitment pursuant to this
Section 2.4 shall permanently reduce the Commitment of each Lender Pro Rata.

         2.5.     Repayment.

         (a) Revolving Credit Loans. Borrower shall repay to Administrative
Lender for the account of each Lender the outstanding principal amount of the
Revolving Credit Loans on the Termination Date.

         (b) Swing Line Loans. Borrower shall repay to Administrative Lender for
the account of Swing Line Bank the outstanding principal amount of each Swing
Line Loan on the Termination Date.

         2.6. Interest. Borrower shall pay interest on the unpaid principal
amount of each Loan owing to each Lender from the date of such Loan until such
principal amount shall be paid in full, at the following rates per annum:

         (a) Domestic Loans. Domestic Loans shall bear interest at a rate per
annum equal to the Base Rate Basis, but no higher than the Highest Lawful Rate;
provided, however, if the amount of interest payable for the account of any
Lender on any interest payment date in respect of the immediately preceding
interest computation period would exceed the Maximum Amount, the amount of
interest payable on such interest payment date shall be automatically reduced to
the Maximum Amount. If the amount of interest payable for the account of any
Lender in respect of any interest computation period is reduced pursuant to the
immediately preceding sentence and the amount of interest payable for its
account in respect of any subsequent interest computation period would be less
than the Maximum Amount, then the amount of interest payable for its account in
respect of such subsequent interest computation period shall be automatically
increased to such Maximum Amount; provided that at no time shall the aggregate
amount by which interest paid for the account of any Lender has been increased
pursuant to this sentence exceed the aggregate amount by which interest paid for
its account has theretofore been reduced pursuant to the immediately preceding
sentence. Interest on Domestic Loans shall be paid quarterly in arrears on each
Quarterly Date and on the Termination Date.

         (b) LIBOR Loans. Each LIBOR Loan shall bear interest at a rate per
annum equal to the LIBOR Basis for such LIBOR Loan. Interest on each LIBOR Loan
shall be payable on the last day of the Interest Period for such LIBOR Loan and
on the Termination Date.

         (c) Swing Line Loans. Swing Line Loans shall bear interest at a rate
per annum equal to the Prime Rate in effect from time to time minus 0.25%, but
no higher than the Highest Lawful Rate; provided, however, if the amount of
interest payable for the account of Swing Line Bank on any interest payment date
in respect of the immediately preceding interest computation period would exceed
the Maximum Amount, the amount of interest payable on such interest payment date
shall be automatically reduced to the Maximum Amount. If the amount of interest
payable for the 


                                     - 27 -



<PAGE>   34


account of Swing Line Bank in respect of any interest computation period is
reduced pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence and the amount of
interest payable for its account in respect of any subsequent interest
computation period would be less than the Maximum Amount, then the amount of
interest payable for its account in respect of such subsequent interest
computation period shall be automatically increased to such Maximum Amount;
provided that at no time shall the aggregate amount by which interest paid for
the account of Swing Line Bank has been increased pursuant to this sentence
exceed the aggregate amount by which interest paid for its account has
theretofore been reduced pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence.
Interest on Swing Line Loans shall be paid quarterly in arrears on each
Quarterly Date and on the Termination Date.


         (d) Default Rate. During the continuance of any Event of Default,
Borrower shall pay, on demand, interest on the principal amount of all Loans
outstanding and on all other Obligations due and unpaid hereunder at a rate per
annum equal to the lesser of the (i) Base Rate Basis plus 2.00% or (ii) Highest
Lawful Rate; provided, however, if the amount of interest payable for the
account of any Lender on any interest payment date in respect of the immediately
preceding interest computation period would exceed the Maximum Amount, the
amount of interest payable on such interest payment date shall be automatically
reduced to the Maximum Amount. If the amount of interest payable for the account
of any Lender in respect of any interest computation period is reduced pursuant
to the immediately preceding sentence and the amount of interest payable for its
account in respect of any subsequent interest computation period would be less
than the Maximum Amount, then the amount of interest payable for its account in
respect of such subsequent interest computation period shall be automatically
increased to such Maximum Amount; provided that at no time shall the aggregate
amount by which interest paid for the account of any Lender has been increased
pursuant to this sentence exceed the aggregate amount by which interest paid for
its account has theretofore been reduced pursuant to the immediately preceding
sentence.

         2.7. Prepayments.

         (a) Optional. Borrower may, from time to time, prepay the outstanding
principal amount of the Loans in whole or in part without penalty or premium,
provided, however, that (w) each partial prepayment shall be in an aggregate
principal amount not less than $5,000,000 or an integral multiple of $500,000 in
excess thereof, (x) no such prepayment of a LIBOR Loan shall be made other than
on the last day of the Interest Period therefor unless Borrower, simultaneously
with such prepayment, pays the compensation required pursuant to Section 8.14(b)
and (y) each prepayment of the principal amount of a LIBOR Loan shall also
include accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on the principal amount
prepaid.

         (b)      Mandatory.

                  (i) Borrower shall, on each Business Day, prepay an aggregate
         principal amount of the Revolving Credit Loans comprising part of the
         same Borrowings and the Swing Line Loans equal to the amount by which
         (A) the aggregate principal amount of the 


                                     - 28 -



<PAGE>   35

         Revolving Credit Loans plus the Swing Line Loans then outstanding plus
         the aggregate principal amount of all Reimbursement Obligations then
         outstanding (assuming compliance with all conditions to drawing)
         exceeds (B) the Total Commitment.

                  (ii)  All prepayments under this subsection (b) shall be made
         together with accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on the
         principal amount prepaid.

                  (iii) Borrower shall indemnify Lenders pursuant to Section
         8.14(b) in connection with any payment required to be made under this
         Section 2.7(b).

         2.8. Conversion of Loans.

         (a) Optional. Borrower may on any Business Day, subject to the notice
provisions of Section 2.2(a) and the provisions of Section 2.9, Convert all or
any portion of the Loans of one Type; provided, however, that (i) any Conversion
of any LIBOR Loans into Domestic Loans shall be made on, and only on, the last
day of the Interest Period for such LIBOR Loans and any Conversion of Domestic
Loans into LIBOR Loans shall be in an amount not less than the minimum amount
specified in Section 2.2(c) and (ii) no Conversion into LIBOR Loans shall be
permitted at any time that a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is
continuing. Each such notice of Conversion shall, within the restrictions
specified above, specify (i) the date of such Conversion, (ii) the Loans to be
Converted and (iii) if such Conversion is into LIBOR Loans the duration of the
initial Interest Period for such Loans. Each notice of Conversion shall be
irrevocable and binding on Borrower.

         (b) Mandatory. If prior to the end of any Interest Period for any LIBOR
Loan Borrower shall fail to give timely notice of the continuance or Conversion
thereof, Administrative Lender will forthwith so notify Borrower and Lenders,
whereupon each such LIBOR Loan will automatically, on the last day of the then
existing Interest Period therefor, Convert into a Domestic Loan. If any notice
given by Borrower pursuant to Section 2.2(a) for a LIBOR Loan or any notice
given by Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.8(b) shall fail to designate an
Interest Period, such notice shall be deemed to have designated an Interest
Period of one (1) month.

         2.9. Increased Costs, Etc.

         (a) If, due to either (i) the introduction of or any change (other than
any change which is taken into account in the calculation of the LIBOR Basis) in
or in the interpretation or administration of any Law or (ii) the compliance
with any guideline or request from any central bank or other governmental
authority, in any case introduced, changed, interpreted or requested after the
date hereof (whether or not having the force of Law), there shall be any
increase in the cost to any Lender of agreeing to make or making, funding or
maintaining LIBOR Loans to Borrower or there shall be any reduction in the
amount received or receivable by any Lender hereunder (whether of principal,
interest or otherwise), then Borrower shall from time to time, upon demand by
such Lender (with a copy of such demand to Administrative Lender), pay to

                                     - 29 -



<PAGE>   36

Administrative Lender for the account of such Lender additional amounts
sufficient to compensate such Lender for such increased cost. A certificate as
to the amount of such increased costs or reductions, submitted to Borrower by
such Lender, shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest
error.

         (b) If any Lender determines that compliance with any Law or any
guideline or request from any central bank or Tribunal (other than as set forth
in the Risked-Based Capital Guidelines issued by the Board of Governors of the
Federal Reserve System, in the form in effect on the date of this Agreement, in
Appendix A to Part 208 of the Federal Reserve Board's Regulation H, 12 CFR Part
208, and in Appendix B to Part 225 of the Federal Reserve Board's Regulation Y,
12 CFR Part 225 (collectively, "Capital Adequacy Guidelines"), but not excluding
from this Section 2.9(b) any increase in cost as a result of any amendment,
modification or change in interpretation or administration of the Capital
Adequacy Guidelines subsequent to the date of this Agreement) (whether or not
having the force of Law) affects or would affect the amount of capital required
or expected to be maintained by such Lender or any corporation controlling such
Lender or has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such
Lender's capital or on the capital of the corporation controlling such Lender
and that the amount of such capital is increased, or the return on such capital
is decreased, by or based upon the existence of such Lender's commitment to lend
hereunder and other commitments of this type or the issuance of, or
participations in, the Letters of Credit (or similar contingent obligations),
then, upon demand by such Lender (with a copy of such demand to Administrative
Lender), Borrower shall pay to Administrative Lender for the account of such
Lender, from time to time as specified by such Lender, additional amounts
sufficient to compensate such Lender or such controlling corporation in the
light of such circumstances, to the extent that such Lender or such controlling
corporation reasonably determines such increase in capital, or reduction in the
return on capital, to be allocable to the existence of such Lender's commitment
to lend hereunder or to the issuance or maintenance of, or participations in,
any Letters of Credit. A certificate as to such amounts submitted to Borrower by
such Lender, shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest
error.

         (c) If Determining Lenders notify Administrative Lender that the LIBOR
Rate for any Interest Period for any LIBOR Loans will not adequately reflect the
cost to such Lenders of making, funding or maintaining their LIBOR Loans for
such Interest Period, Administrative Lender shall forthwith so notify Borrower
and Lenders, whereupon (i) each such LIBOR Loan will automatically, on the last
day of the then existing Interest Period therefor, Convert into a Domestic Loan
and (ii) the obligation of Lenders to make or continue, or to Convert Loans
into, LIBOR Loans shall be suspended until such Determining Lenders notify
Administrative Lender that such Determining Lenders have determined that the
circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist and Administrative Lender
notifies Borrower and Lenders of such fact.

         (d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the
introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation or administration of
any Law shall make it unlawful, or any central bank or other governmental
authority shall assert that it is unlawful, for any Lender to perform its
obligations hereunder to make LIBOR 


                                     - 30 -



<PAGE>   37


Loans or to continue to fund or maintain LIBOR Loans hereunder, then, on notice
thereof and demand therefor by such Lender to Borrower and the other Lenders
through Administrative Lender, (i) each LIBOR Loan will automatically, upon such
demand, Convert into a Domestic Loan and (ii) the obligation of Lenders to make
or continue, or to Convert Loans into, LIBOR Loans shall be suspended until such
Lender notifies Administrative Lender that such Lender has determined that the
circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist and Administrative Lender
notifies Borrower and the other Lenders of such fact.

         (e) Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Default or
Event of Default, (i) each LIBOR Loan will automatically, on the last day of the
then existing Interest Period therefor, Convert into a Domestic Loan and (ii)
the obligation of Lenders to make or continue, or to Convert Loans into, LIBOR
Loans shall be suspended.

         (f) Failure on the part of any Lender to demand compensation for any
increased costs, increased capital or reduction in amounts received or
receivable or reduction in return on capital pursuant to this Section 2.9 with
respect to any period shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender's right to
demand compensation with respect to such period or any other period; provided,
however, that any such Lender's demand for compensation shall not include any
such compensation with respect to periods more than 90 days prior to such
demand, unless the effective date of any event which causes a right to
compensation is retroactive ("Retroactive Effective Date"). If any such event
has a Retroactive Effective Date and any Lender demands compensation within 90
days after the date setting the Retroactive Effective Date (the "Set Date"),
such Lender shall have the right to receive such compensation from the
Retroactive Effective Date. If such Lender does not demand such compensation
within 90 days after the Set Date, such Lender may not receive compensation with
respect to periods more than 90 days prior to such demand.

         (g) The obligations of Borrower under this Section 2.9 shall survive
any termination of this Agreement.

         (h) Any certificate delivered to Borrower by a Lender pursuant to this
Section 2.9 shall include in reasonable detail the basis for such Lender's
demand for additional compensation. Any Lender claiming any additional
compensation payable pursuant to this Section 2.9 shall use reasonable efforts
(consistent with legal and regulatory restrictions) to reduce or eliminate any
such additional compensation which may thereafter accrue and which efforts would
not, in the sole determination of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to
such Lender.

         2.10.    Payments and Computations.

         (a) Borrower shall make each payment hereunder not later than 12:00
noon (Dallas time) on the day when due in Dollars to Administrative Lender at
Administrative Lender's Principal Office in same day funds. Administrative
Lender will, on the same day, if received by Administrative Lender by the time
prescribed in the immediately preceding sentence, or, on the next immediately
succeeding Business Day, if received after such time, cause to be distributed
like 


                                     - 31 -



<PAGE>   38


funds relating to the payment of principal or interest or Commitment Fees Pro
Rata (other than amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.9(a), 2.9(b), 2.11 or
2.13(d), amounts payable to Swing Line Bank in respect of Swing Line Loans and
amounts payable to the Issuing Bank in respect of Letters of Credit) to Lenders,
and like funds relating to the payment of any other amount payable to any Lender
to such Lender, in each case to be applied in accordance with the terms of this
Agreement. Such amounts received by Administrative Lender, if not distributed by
Administrative Lender on the day of receipt but received in time for investment
by Administrative Lender, shall bear interest for the account of such Lender to
whom such funds are owed at the Federal Funds Rate. Upon its acceptance of an
Assignment and Acceptance and recording of the information contained therein in
the Register pursuant to Section 8.16(c), from and after the effective date of
such Assignment and Acceptance, Administrative Lender shall make all payments
hereunder in respect of the interest assigned thereby to the Lender assignee
thereunder, and the parties to such Assignment and Acceptance shall make all
appropriate adjustments in such payments for periods prior to such effective
date directly between themselves.

         (b) Interest on Domestic Loans and Swing Line Loans, and the Commitment
Fee, shall be calculated on the basis of a 365 or 366 day year, as appropriate.
Subject to Section 8.13, interest on LIBOR Loans, and the commission on the
Letters of Credit, shall be calculated on the basis of actual days elapsed but
computed as if each year consisted of 360 days. Such computations shall be made
including the first day but excluding the last day occurring in the period for
which such interest or Commitment Fee is payable. Each determination by
Administrative Lender of an interest rate, fee or commission hereunder shall be
conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.

         (c) Whenever any payment hereunder shall be stated to be due on a day
other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding
Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the
computation or payment of interest, as the case may be; provided, however, if
such extension would cause payment of interest on or principal of LIBOR Loans to
be made in the next following calendar month, such payment shall be made on the
next preceding Business Day.

         (d) Unless Administrative Lender shall have received notice from
Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to any Lenders hereunder
that Borrower will not make such payment in full, Administrative Lender may
assume that Borrower has made such payment in full to Administrative Lender on
such date and Administrative Lender may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause
to be distributed to each such Lender on such due date an amount equal to the
amount then due such Lender. If and to the extent Borrower shall not have so
made such payment in full to Administrative Lender, each such Lender shall repay
to Administrative Lender forthwith on demand such amount distributed to such
Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is
distributed to such Lender until the date such Lender repays such amount to
Administrative Lender, at a rate per annum equal to the lesser of (i) the
Highest Lawful Rate or (ii) the Federal Funds Rate.

         2.11.    Taxes.

         (a) Any and all payments by Borrower hereunder shall be made, in
accordance with Section 2.10, free and clear of and without deduction for any
and all taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges and withholdings, and all
liabilities with respect thereto, excluding, (i) in the case of each Lender and
Administrative Lender, taxes imposed on its overall net income, and franchise
taxes imposed on it, by the jurisdiction(s) under the laws of which such Lender
or Administrative Lender (as the case may be) is organized or doing business or
any political subdivision thereof, (ii) in the case of each Lender, taxes
imposed on its overall net income, and franchise taxes imposed on it, by the
jurisdiction of such Lender's applicable Lending Office or any political
subdivision thereof, (iii) in the case of each Lender, United States withholding
tax (other than such tax which while designated as a "withholding tax" is in the
nature of an income or franchise tax) payable with respect to payments hereunder
under Laws (including, without limitation any statute, treaty, ruling,
determination or regulation) in effect on the Initial Date and (iv) taxes
imposed by reason of any failure of such Lender, if such Lender is entitled at
such time to a total or partial exemption from withholding that is required to
be evidenced by a United States Internal Revenue Service Form 1001 or 4224, to
deliver to Administrative Lender or Borrower, from time to time as requested by
Administrative Lender or Borrower, such Form 1001 under penalty of perjury or
4224 (as applicable) or any successor thereto, completed in a manner reasonably
satisfactory to Administrative Lender or Borrower, but not excluding any United
States withholding tax (other than such tax which while designated as a
"withholding tax" is in the nature of an income or franchise tax) payable as a
result of any adoption of or change in such Laws occurring after the Initial
Date (all such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges,
withholdings and liabilities being hereinafter referred to as "Taxes"). For
purposes of this section, the term "Initial Date" shall mean, in the case of
each Bank, the date hereof and, in the case of each Lender other than a Bank,
the date of the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which it becomes a Lender.
If Borrower shall be required by law to deduct any Taxes from or in respect of
any sum payable hereunder to any Lender or Administrative Lender, (x) the sum
payable shall be increased as may be necessary so that after making all required
deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under
this Section 2.11) such Lender or Administrative Lender (as the case may be)
receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such
deductions been made, (y) Borrower shall make such deductions and (z) Borrower
shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxation authority or other
authority in accordance with applicable law.

         (b) In addition, Borrower agrees to pay any and all stamp and
documentary taxes and any and all other excise and property taxes, charges and
similar levies that arise from any payment made hereunder or from the execution,
delivery or registration of, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or any
other Loan Document (hereinafter referred to as "Other Taxes").

         (c) Borrower will indemnify each Lender and Administrative Lender for
the full amount of Taxes and Other Taxes (including, without limitation, any
Taxes or Other Taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this
Section 2.11) paid by such Lender or 

                                     - 33 -



<PAGE>   40


Administrative Lender (as the case may be) and all liabilities (including
penalties, additions to tax, interest and reasonable expenses) arising therefrom
or with respect thereto whether or not such Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly
or legally asserted, other than penalties, additions to tax, interest and
expenses arising as a result of gross negligence on the part of such Lender or
Administrative Lender, provided, however, that Borrower shall have no obligation
to indemnify such Lender or Administrative Lender unless and until such Lender
or Administrative Lender shall have delivered to Borrower a certificate setting
forth in reasonable detail the basis of Borrower's obligation to indemnify such
Lender or Administrative Lender pursuant to this Section 2.11. This
indemnification shall be made within 30 days from the date such Lender or
Administrative Lender (as the case may be) makes written demand therefor.

         (d) Within 30 days after the date of any payment of Taxes, Borrower
will furnish to Administrative Lender, at its address referred to in Section
8.6, the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof if
Borrower has received such receipt. If no Taxes are payable in respect of any
payment hereunder, Borrower will furnish to Administrative Lender, at such
address, a certificate from each appropriate taxing authority, or an opinion of
counsel acceptable to Administrative Lender, in either case stating that such
payment is exempt from or not subject to Taxes, provided, however, that such
certificate or opinion need only be given if: (i) Borrower makes any payment
from any account located outside the United States, or (ii) the payment is made
by a payor that is not a United States Person. For purposes of this Section 2.11
the terms "United States" and "United States Person" shall have the meanings set
forth in Section 7701 of the Code.

         (e) Each Lender which is not a United States Person hereby agrees that:

             (i) it shall, no later than the Initial Date, deliver to
         Borrower through Administrative Lender, with a copy to Administrative
         Lender:

               (A)  if any Lending Office is located in the United States of
                    America, two (2) accurate and complete signed originals of
                    Internal Revenue Service Form 4224 or any successor thereto
                    ("Form 4224"),

               (B)  if any Lending Office is located outside the United States
                    of America, two (2) accurate and complete signed originals
                    of Internal Revenue Service Form 1001 or any successor
                    thereto ("Form 1001").

         in each case indicating that such Lender is on the date of delivery
         thereof entitled to receive payments of principal, interest and fees
         for the account of such Lending Office or Lending Offices under this
         Agreement free from withholding of United States Federal income tax;

                  (ii) if at any time such Lender changes its Lending Office or
         Lending Offices or selects an additional Lending Office it shall, at
         the same time or reasonably promptly thereafter but only to the extent
         the forms previously delivered by it hereunder are no 


                                     - 34 -

         longer effective, deliver to Borrower through Administrative Lender, 
         with a copy to Administrative Lender, in replacement for the forms 
         previously delivered by it hereunder:

                   (A)     if such changed or additional Lending Office is
                           located in the United States of America, two (2)
                           accurate and complete signed originals of Form 4224;
                           or

                   (B)     otherwise, two (2) accurate and complete signed
                           originals of Form 1001,

         in each case indicating that such Lender is on the date of delivery
         thereof entitled to receive payments of principal, interest and fees
         for the account of such changed or additional Lending Office under this
         Agreement free from withholding of United States Federal income tax;

                  (iii) it shall, before or promptly after the occurrence of any
         event (including the passing of time but excluding any event mentioned
         in clause (ii) above) requiring a change in the most recent Form 4224
         or Form 1001 previously delivered by such Lender and if the delivery of
         the same be lawful, deliver to Borrower through Administrative Lender
         with a copy to Administrative Lender, two (2) accurate and complete
         original signed copies of Form 4224 or Form 1001 in replacement for the
         forms previously delivered by such Lender; and

                  (iv) it shall, promptly upon the request of Borrower to that
         effect, deliver to Borrower such other forms or similar documentation
         as may be required from time to time by any applicable law, treaty,
         rule or regulation in order to establish such Lender's tax status for
         withholding purposes.

         (f) Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of
Borrower hereunder, the agreements and obligations of Borrower contained in this
Section 2.11 shall survive the payment in full of principal and interest
hereunder until the date which is 90 (ninety) days after the expiration of the
statutory periods for the assessment of taxes.

         (g) Any Lender claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this
Section 2.11 shall use its reasonable best efforts (consistent with its internal
policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its
Lending Office, if the making of such a change would avoid the need for, or
reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts which may thereafter accrue
and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise
disadvantageous to such Lender.

         (h) Each Lender (and Administrative Lender with respect to payments to
Administrative Lender for its own account) agrees that (i) it will take all
reasonable actions by all usual means to maintain all exemptions, if any,
available to it from United States withholding taxes (whether available by
treaty, existing administrative waiver, by virtue of the location of any
Lender's 

                                     - 35 -



<PAGE>   42


Lending Office) and (ii) otherwise cooperate with Borrower to minimize
amounts payable by Borrower under this Section 2.11; provided, however, Lenders
and Administrative Lender shall not be obligated by reason of this Section
2.11(h) to contest the payment of any Taxes or Other Taxes or to disclose any
information regarding its tax affairs or tax computations or reorder its tax or
other affairs or tax or other planning.

         2.12. Sharing of Payments, Etc. If any Lender shall obtain any payment
(whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off,
or otherwise) on account of the Loans and/or fees owing to it (other than
pursuant to Section 2.9(a), 2.9(b), 2.11 or 2.13(d), payments to the Swing Line
Bank in respect of Swing Line Loans and payments to the Issuing Bank in respect
of Letters of Credit) in excess of its pro rata share of payments on account of
the Loans and/or fees obtained by all Lenders, such Lender shall forthwith
purchase from the other Lenders such participations in the Loans owing to them
or make such other payment as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender
to share the excess payment ratably with each of them; provided, however, that
if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such
purchasing Lender, such purchase from each Lender shall be rescinded and such
Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price to the extent of
such recovery together with an amount equal to such Lender's ratable share
(according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Lender's required
repayment to (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender) of
any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Lender in respect
of the total amount so recovered. Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing
a participation from another Lender pursuant to this Section 2.12 may, to the
fullest extent permitted by Law, exercise all its rights of payment (including
the right of set-off) with respect to such participation as fully as if such
Lender were the direct creditor of Borrower in the amount of such participation.

         2.13.    Letters of Credit.

         (a) The Letter of Credit Facility. Borrower may request Issuing Bank,
on the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, to issue, and Issuing Bank
shall, if so requested, issue, letters of credit (the "Letters of Credit",
including the Existing Letters of Credit) for the account of Borrower or any
other Company from time to time on any Business Day from the date of the initial
Borrowing until the Termination Date in an aggregate maximum amount (assuming
compliance with all conditions to drawing) not to exceed at any time outstanding
the lesser of (i) $20,000,000 (the "Letter of Credit Facility") and (ii) the sum
of (A) the Total Commitment minus (B) the aggregate principal amount of
Revolving Credit Loans then outstanding, minus (C) the aggregate principal
amount of Swing Line Loans outstanding. If any Letter of Credit is issued for
the account of any Company other than Borrower, Borrower and such other Company
shall be jointly and severally liable for all obligations in respect of such
Letter of Credit and all references to Borrower which relate to obligations or
provisions with respect to any such Letter of Credit shall also mean and refer
to such other Company. No Letter of Credit shall have an expiration date
(including all rights of renewal) later than the earlier of (i) the Termination
Date or (ii) two years after the date of issuance thereof. Immediately upon the
issuance of each Letter of Credit (or as of the Agreement Date, with respect to
the Existing Letters of Credit), Issuing 


                                     - 36 -



<PAGE>   43


Bank shall be deemed to have sold and transferred to each Lender, and each
Lender shall be deemed to have purchased and received from Issuing Bank, in each
case irrevocably and without any further action by any party, an undivided
interest and participation in such Letter of Credit, each drawing thereunder and
the obligations of Borrower under this Agreement in respect thereof in an amount
equal to the product of (x) such Lender's Specified Percentage times (y) the
maximum amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit (assuming
compliance with all conditions to drawing). Within the limits of the Letter of
Credit Facility, and subject to the limits referred to above, Borrower may
request the issuance of Letters of Credit under this Section 2.13(a), repay any
Revolving Credit Loans resulting from drawings thereunder pursuant to Section
2.13(c) and request the issuance of additional Letters of Credit under this
Section 2.13(a).

         (b)      Request for Issuance.

                  (i) Each Letter of Credit shall be issued upon notice, given
         not later than 11:00 a.m. (Dallas time) on the third Business Day prior
         to the date of the proposed issuance of such Letter of Credit, by
         Borrower to Issuing Bank, which shall give to Administrative Lender and
         each Lender prompt notice thereof by telex, telecopier or cable. Each
         Letter of Credit shall be issued upon notice given in accordance with
         the terms of any separate agreement between Borrower (and if such
         Letter of Credit is for the account of any Company other than Borrower,
         such other Company) and Issuing Bank in form and substance reasonably
         satisfactory to Borrower and Issuing Bank providing for the issuance of
         Letters of Credit pursuant to this Agreement and containing terms and
         conditions not inconsistent with this Agreement (a "Letter of Credit
         Agreement"), provided that if any such terms and conditions are
         inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement shall control. Each
         such notice of issuance of a Letter of Credit (a "Notice of Issuance")
         shall be by telex, telecopier or cable, specifying therein the
         requested (A) date of such issuance (which shall be a Business Day),
         (B) maximum amount of such Letter of Credit, (C) expiration date of
         such Letter of Credit, (D) name and address of the beneficiary of such
         Letter of Credit, (E) form of such Letter of Credit and (F) such other
         information as shall be required pursuant to the relevant Letter of
         Credit Agreement. If the requested terms of such Letter of Credit are
         acceptable to Issuing Bank in its reasonable discretion, Issuing Bank
         will, upon fulfillment of the applicable conditions set forth in
         Sections 2.16 and 2.17, make such Letter of Credit available to
         Borrower at its office referred to in Section 8.6 or as otherwise
         agreed with Borrower in connection with such issuance.

                  (ii) Issuing Bank shall furnish to each Lender on each
         Quarterly Date (A) a written report summarizing issuance and expiration
         dates of Letters of Credit issued during the preceding quarter and
         drawings during such quarter under all Letters of Credit and setting
         forth such Lender's participation therein and (B) a copy of each Letter
         of Credit issued during the preceding quarter.


                                     - 37 -



<PAGE>   44

         
         (c) Drawing and Reimbursement. The payment by Issuing Bank of a draft
drawn under any Letter of Credit shall constitute for all purposes of this
Agreement the making by Issuing Bank of a Revolving Credit Loan, which shall be
a Domestic Loan, in the amount of such draft (but without any requirement for
compliance with the conditions set forth in Sections 2.16 and 2.17). In the
event that a drawing under any Letter of Credit is not reimbursed by Borrower
by 11:00 a.m. (Dallas time) on the first Business Day after such drawing,
Issuing Bank shall promptly notify Administrative Lender and each other Lender.
Unless the payment by Issuing Bank of a draft drawn under such Letter of Credit
was made upon Issuing Bank's gross negligence or willful misconduct, each such
Lender shall, on the first Business Day following such notification, make a
Revolving Credit Loan, which shall be a Domestic Loan and shall be used to
repay the applicable portion of Issuing Bank's Revolving Credit Loan with
respect to such Letter of Credit, in an amount equal to the amount of its
participation in such drawing for application to reimburse Issuing Bank (but
without any requirement for compliance with the applicable conditions set forth
in Sections 2.16 and 2.17) and shall make available to Administrative Lender
for the account of Issuing Bank, by deposit at Administrative Lender's
Principal Office, in same day funds, the amount of such Revolving Credit Loan.
In the event that any Lender fails to make available to Administrative Lender
for the account of Issuing Bank the amount of such Revolving Credit Loan,
Issuing Bank shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such
Lender together with interest thereon at a rate per annum equal to the lesser
of (i) the Highest Lawful Rate or (ii) the Federal Funds Rate.

         (d) Increased Costs. If, after the date hereof, any change in any law
or regulation or in the interpretation thereof by any court or administrative or
governmental authority charged with the administration thereof shall either (i)
impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar
requirement against letters of credit or guarantees issued by, or assets held
by, or deposits in or for the account of, Issuing Bank or any Lender or (ii)
impose on Issuing Bank or any Lender any other condition regarding this
Agreement or such Lender or any Letter of Credit, and the result of any event
referred to in the preceding clause (i) or (ii) shall be to increase the cost to
Issuing Bank of issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or to any Lender of
purchasing any participation therein or making any Revolving Credit Loan
pursuant to Section 2.13(c), then, upon demand by Issuing Bank or such Lender,
Borrower shall pay to Issuing Bank or such Lender, from time to time as
specified by Issuing Bank or such Lender, additional amounts that shall be
sufficient to compensate Issuing Bank or such Lender for such increased cost. A
certificate as to the amount of such increased cost, submitted to Borrower by
Issuing Bank or such Lender, shall include in reasonable detail the basis for
the demand for additional compensation and shall be conclusive and binding for
all purposes, absent manifest error. The obligations of Borrower under this
Section 2.13(d) shall survive termination of this Agreement. Issuing Bank or any
Lender claiming any additional compensation under this Section 2.13(d) shall use
reasonable efforts (consistent with legal and regulatory restrictions) to reduce
or eliminate any such additional compensation which may thereafter accrue and
which efforts would not, in the sole discretion of Issuing Bank or such Lender,
be otherwise disadvantageous.

<PAGE>   45

         (e) Obligations Absolute. The obligations of Borrower under this
Agreement with respect to any Letter of Credit, any Letter of Credit Agreement
and any other agreement or instrument relating to any Letter of Credit or any
Revolving Credit Loan pursuant to Section 2.13(c) shall be unconditional and
irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this
Agreement, such Letter of Credit Agreement and such other agreement or
instrument under all circumstances, including, without limitation, the following
circumstances:

                  (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement,

         agreement or instrument relating thereto (collectively, the "L/C
         Related Documents");

                  (ii) any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or
         in any other term of, all or any of the Obligations of Borrower in
         respect of the Letters of Credit or any Revolving Credit Loan pursuant
         to Section 2.13(c) or any other amendment or waiver of or any consent
         to departure from all or any of the L/C Related Documents;

                  (iii) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other
         right that Borrower may have at any time against any beneficiary or any
         transferee of a Letter of Credit (or any Persons for whom any such
         beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting), Issuing Bank, any
         Lender or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement,
         the transactions contemplated hereby or by the L/C Related Documents or
         any unrelated transaction;

                  (iv) any statement or any other document presented under a
         Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or
         insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or
         inaccurate in any respect;

                  (v) payment by Issuing Bank under a Letter of Credit against
         presentation of a draft or certificate that does not comply with the
         terms of such Letter of Credit except for any payment made upon Issuing
         Bank's gross negligence or willful misconduct;

                  (vi) any exchange, release or non-perfection of any
         collateral, or any release or amendment or waiver of or consent to
         departure from the Guaranty or any other guarantee, for all or any of
         the Obligations of Borrower in respect of the Letters of Credit or any
         Revolving Credit Loan pursuant to Section 2.13(c); or

                  (vii) any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether
         or not similar to any of the foregoing, including, without limitation,
         any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense
         available to, or a discharge of, Borrower or a Guarantor.

         (f)      Compensation.

                  (i) Borrower shall pay to Administrative Lender for the
         account of each Lender (including Issuing Bank) a commission on the
         average daily amount available for drawing under (i) all outstanding
         Financial Letters of Credit equal to 100% of the Applicable LIBOR Rate
         Margin which is in effect during the applicable period of calculation
         and (ii) all outstanding Nonfinancial Letters of Credit equal to 50% of
         the Applicable LIBOR Rate Margin which is in effect during the
         applicable period of calculation, in each case payable quarterly in
         arrears on each Quarterly Date and on the Termination Date.

                  (ii) Borrower shall pay to Issuing Bank, for its own account,
         an issuance fee equal to the product of (i) 0.125% multiplied by the
         average daily amount available for drawing under all outstanding
         Financial Letters of Credit and (ii) 0.0625% multiplied by the average
         daily amount available for drawing under all outstanding Nonfinancial
         Letters of Credit, in each case payable quarterly in arrears on each
         Quarterly Date and on the Termination Date.

         (g)      L/C Cash Collateral Account.

                  (i) Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and demand by
         Administrative Lender pursuant to Section 6.2(iv), Borrower will
         promptly pay to Administrative Lender in immediately available funds an
         amount equal to the maximum amount then available to be drawn under the
         Letters of Credit then outstanding. Any amounts so received by
         Administrative Lender shall be deposited by Administrative Lender in a
         deposit account maintained by Issuing Bank (the "L/C Cash Collateral
         Account").

                  (ii) As security for the payment of all Reimbursement
         Obligations and for any other Obligations, Borrower hereby conveys,
         assigns, pledges, sets over and transfers to Administrative Lender (for
         the benefit of Issuing Bank and Lenders), and grants and creates in
         Administrative Lender's favor (for the benefit of Issuing Bank and
         Lenders) a Lien in, all money, instruments and securities at any time
         held in or acquired in connection with the L/C Cash Collateral Account,
         together with all proceeds thereof. The L/C Cash Collateral Account
         shall be under the sole dominion and control of Administrative Lender
         and Borrower shall have no right to withdraw or to cause Administrative
         Lender to withdraw any funds deposited in the L/C Cash Collateral
         Account. At any time and from time to time, upon Administrative
         Lender's request, Borrower promptly shall execute and deliver any and
         all such further instruments and documents, including UCC financing
         statements, as may be necessary, appropriate or desirable in
         Administrative Lender's judgment to obtain the full benefits (including
         perfection and priority) of the security interest created or intended
         to be created by this paragraph (ii) and of the rights and powers
         herein granted. Borrower shall not create or suffer to exist any Lien
         on any amounts or investments held in the L/C Cash Collateral Account
         other than the Lien granted under this 


                                     - 40 -



<PAGE>   47

         paragraph (ii) and Liens arising by operation of Law and not by 
         contract which secure amounts not yet due and payable.

                  (iii) Administrative Lender shall (A) apply any funds in the
         L/C Cash Collateral Account on account of Reimbursement Obligations
         when the same become due and payable if and to the extent that Borrower
         shall fail directly to pay such Reimbursement Obligations and (B) after
         the date on which the Commitments of Lenders shall have terminated, all
         Letters of Credit shall have expired and all Reimbursement Obligations
         shall have been paid in full, apply any proceeds remaining in the L/C
         Cash Collateral Account first to pay any unpaid Obligations then
         outstanding hereunder and then to refund any remaining amount to
         Borrower.

                  (iv) Borrower, no more than once in any calendar month, may
         direct Administrative Lender to invest the funds held in the L/C Cash
         Collateral Account (so long as the aggregate amount of such funds
         exceeds any relevant minimum investment requirement) in (A) direct
         obligations of the United States or any agency thereof, or obligations
         guaranteed by the United States or any agency thereof and (B) one or
         more other types of investments permitted by Determining Lenders, in
         each case with such maturities as Borrower, with the consent of
         Determining Lenders, may specify, pending application of such funds on
         account of Reimbursement Obligations or on account of other
         Obligations, as the case may be. In the absence of any such direction
         from Borrower, Administrative Lender shall invest the funds held in the
         L/C Cash Collateral Account (so long as the aggregate amount of such
         funds exceeds any relevant minimum investment requirement) in one or
         more types of investments with the consent of Determining Lenders with
         such maturities as Borrower, with the consent of Determining Lenders,
         may specify, pending application of such funds on account of
         Reimbursement Obligations or on account of other Obligations, as the
         case may be. All such investments shall be made in Administrative
         Lender's name for the account of Lenders. Borrower recognizes that any
         losses or Taxes with respect to such investments shall be borne solely
         by Borrower, and Borrower agrees to hold Administrative Lender and
         Lenders harmless from any and all such losses and Taxes. Administrative
         Lender may liquidate any investment held in the L/C Cash Collateral
         Account in order to apply the proceeds of such investment on account of
         the Reimbursement Obligations (or on account of any other Obligation
         then due and payable, as the case may be) without regard to whether
         such investment has matured and without liability for any penalty or
         other fee incurred (with respect to which Borrower hereby agrees to
         reimburse Administrative Lender) as a result of such application.

                  (v) Borrower shall pay to Administrative Lender the fees
         customarily charged by Issuing Bank with respect to the maintenance of
         accounts similar to the L/C Cash Collateral Account.

         2.14. Use of Proceeds. The proceeds of the Loans and the Letters of
Credit shall be available (and Borrower agrees that it shall use such proceeds)
solely to refinance Debt of

the applicable Notice of Borrowing, Notice of Swing Line Borrowing or Notice of

misconduct on the part of Swing Line Bank or Issuing Bank, as appropriate) and
such Loan shall be made by such Lender notwithstanding the failure of Borrower
to satisfy any condition set forth in this Section 2.17, provided that the Swing

instances of gross negligence or willful misconduct of Administrative Lender,

Documents and holding the position of Vice President or a more senior position
shall have received notice from such Lender prior to the Agreement Date

right, with the assistance of Administrative Lender, to designate a substitute
Lender or Lenders for each such Lender mutually satisfactory to Borrower,
Administrative Lender and Lenders to purchase its Revolving Credit Note and

outstanding principal amount of the Loans payable to such Lender, plus any
accrued and unpaid interest on such Loans and accrued but unpaid Commitment Fees
and other fees in respect of such Lender's Commitment and any other amounts

so pay and discharge would not have a Material Adverse Effect, and (ii) all
lawful claims for labor, rentals, materials and supplies which, if unpaid, might

would not have a Material Adverse Effect;

to perform any of the covenants set forth in clauses (i)-(iv) immediately
preceding would not individually, or in the aggregate, have a reasonable
likelihood of resulting in liability to Borrower or any member of its Controlled
Group in excess of Twenty Million Dollars ($20,000,000); and

Million Dollars ($20,000,000).

                         REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

         Borrower represents, warrants and covenants, but not any time prior to
the Agreement Date, as follows:

         5.1. Organization and Qualification. The Companies (a) are duly
organized, validly existing, and in good standing under the Laws of their
jurisdictions of incorporation to the extent necessary not to have a Material
Adverse Effect; (b) are duly licensed and in good standing as a foreign entity
in each jurisdiction in which the nature of the business transacted or the
property owned is such as to require licensing as such, except where the failure
to be so licensed would not have a Material Adverse Effect; and (c) possess all
legal authority, power, licenses, permits and franchises necessary to conduct
their business the failure to possess which would have a Material Adverse Effect
and to execute, deliver and comply with the terms of the Loan Documents to be
executed by them, all of which have been duly authorized and approved by all
necessary legal action and for which no approval or consent of any Tribunal is
required. The respective jurisdictions of organization and the percentage
ownership by each Company of each other Company listed on Exhibit F (as Exhibit
F is amended or supplemented pursuant to Section 3.2(h)) are true and correct.


                                     - 55 -



<PAGE>   62

         5.2. Financial Statements. The audited consolidated financial
statements of Companies as of and for the period ended December 31, 1996 and the
unaudited financial statements of Companies as of and for the period ended March
31, 1997, heretofore furnished to Lenders are complete and correct in all
material respects and were prepared substantially in accordance with GAAP except
to the extent stated therein, and fairly present the financial condition and
results of operation of Companies as of the dates indicated and for the periods
involved. As of the date of said financial statements there were no contingent
liabilities, liabilities for Taxes, unusual forward or long-term commitments or
unrealized or anticipated losses from any unfavorable commitments, any of which
are material in amount in relation to the financial condition of Companies,
except as referred to or reflected or provided for in said financial statements.
Since the date of said financial statements, there has been no material adverse
change in the consolidated financial condition or business operations of
Companies, taken as a whole.

         5.3. Taxes. Borrower and each other Company have filed all federal,
state and other income tax returns which are required to be filed (other than
tax returns, none of which concern a material part of the business, operations
or properties of Companies taken as a whole, which in the reasonable opinion of
Borrower are not required to be filed) and have paid all Taxes as shown on said
returns, and all Taxes due or payable without returns and all assessments
received to the extent that such Taxes or assessments have become due, except
for any Taxes and assessments being contested in good faith by proper
proceedings and for which adequate reserves have been established in accordance
with GAAP or where the non-filing or non-payment of which has no reasonable
likelihood of having a Material Adverse Effect. All Tax liabilities of Borrower
and each other Company are adequately provided for on the books of each Company,
including interest and penalties, except where the failure to so provide would
not have a Material Adverse Effect. No income tax liability of a material nature
has been asserted by taxing authorities for Taxes in excess of those already
paid, and federal, state and other income tax returns of Borrower and each other
Company have been examined and reported on by the taxing authorities or closed
by applicable Laws and satisfied for all years prior to and including 1993.

         5.4. Compliance With Laws and Other Matters. None of the Companies is,
nor will the execution, delivery and performance and compliance with the terms
of the Loan Documents cause any of the Companies to be: (a) in violation of any
Law or their articles of incorporation or bylaws in any respect which would have
any Material Adverse Effect; or (b) in violation of or in default with the terms
of any Material Contractual Obligation (including, without limitation, network
affiliation agreements) to which any Company is a party which violation or
default would have a Material Adverse Effect or result in or require the
creation or imposition of any Lien (other than a Permitted Lien) upon or with
respect to any of the properties of any Company. Except for matters affecting
the broadcasting, communications and entertainment industries generally and for
matters described in Exhibit O, there is no existing Litigation pending against
or, to the knowledge of Borrower, threatened against any Company or its
properties which is not fully covered by insurance (or for which adequate
reserves have not been set up and reflected on the financial statements
delivered to Lenders and described in Section 5.2) or which would have a
Material 


                                     - 56 -



<PAGE>   63


Adverse Effect. There are no outstanding or unpaid final judgments against any
of the Companies which would have a Material Adverse Effect.

         5.5. Total Liabilities. Since the date of the financial statements
referred to in Section 5.2, no Company has incurred any material liability
included within total liabilities, except (i) as referred to or reflected in the
financial statements referred to in Section 5.2, (ii) as disclosed in Exhibit P,
(iii) liabilities incurred in the ordinary course of business, or (iv) such
liabilities as would not have a Material Adverse Effect.

         5.6. Title to Properties. Each Company has (a) full power, authority
and legal right to own and operate the properties which it now owns, and to
carry on the business in which it is now engaged; and (b) to the extent
necessary to carry on its business without causing a Material Adverse Effect,
good and marketable title in fee simple to all real property owned by it (except
as to real property or parcels thereof acquired by quitclaim) and good and
merchantable title to all its other properties and assets subject to no Lien of
any kind except Permitted Liens.

         5.7. Corporate Authorization; Validity. The Board of Directors of
Borrower and each Guarantor, as appropriate, have duly authorized the execution
and delivery of this Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents and the
performance of their respective terms. No consent of the stockholders of
Borrower or any Guarantor is required as a prerequisite to the validity and
enforceability of this Agreement or any document contemplated herein. Borrower
and each Guarantor have full power, authority and legal right to execute and
deliver and to perform and observe the provisions of this Agreement, the Notes
and all other Loan Documents, as appropriate, to be executed and delivered by
them. This Agreement is, and the Notes and each of the other Loan Documents will
on due execution and delivery thereof be, the legal, valid and binding
obligation of Borrower or the Guarantor executing and delivering it, enforceable
in accordance with their respective terms, subject as to enforcement of remedies
to any Debtor Relief Laws and general equitable principles.

         5.8. Use of Proceeds. No Company is engaged principally in the business
of extending credit secured directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, by
margin stock (within the meaning of Regulation U ("Regulation U") of the Board
of Governors of the Federal Reserve System), and, after giving effect to each
Loan and Letter of Credit hereunder and the application of the proceeds thereof,
not more than 25% of the assets of the Companies are or will be margin stock. No
Company nor any agent acting on its behalf has taken or will take any action
which might cause this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents to violate
any regulation of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or to
violate the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, in each case as in effect now or as
the same may hereafter be in effect.

         5.9. Possession of Franchises, Licenses, Etc. Each Company possesses
all franchises, certificates, licenses, permits and other authorizations from
governmental political subdivisions or regulatory authorities that (i) are
necessary in any material respect for the ownership, maintenance and operation
of their properties and assets, and (ii) the loss of possession of which 


                                     - 57 -



<PAGE>   64


would have a Material Adverse Effect, and no Company is in violation of any
thereof in any material respect the result of which would have a Material
Adverse Effect.

         5.10. Leases. Each Company peacefully enjoys possession of all property
leased for the operation of its properties and assets, the loss of possession of
which could have a Material Adverse Effect. All such leases are valid and
subsisting and are in full force and effect to the extent necessary so as to not
result in a Material Adverse Effect.

         5.11. Disclosure. Neither this Agreement nor any other document,
certificate or statement, taken as a whole, furnished to the Lenders by or on
behalf of Borrower or any other Company in connection herewith contains any
untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact necessary
in order to make the statements contained herein and therein not misleading when
taken as a whole.

         5.12. Government Regulation. No Company is subject to regulation under
the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935, the Federal Power Act, the
Investment Company Act of 1940, the Interstate Commerce Act (other than Grand
Ole Opry Tours, Inc.) (as any of the preceding acts have been amended), or any
other Law which the incurring of Debt by Borrower would violate in any material
respect, including, without limitation, Laws relating to common or contract
carriers or the sale of electricity, gas, steam, water, or other public utility
services; provided, however, that certain of the Companies are regulated by the
FCC, and are subject to requirements of the Communications Act of 1934, as
amended, and the current rules and regulations of the FCC, but (a) are in
compliance with respect thereto in all circumstances where the failure to do so
would have a Material Adverse Effect and (b) no approval or authorization by or
filing with any Tribunal is necessary or required for the execution and delivery
of any of the Loan Documents or the performance of their respective terms;
provided, however, that this Agreement may be required to be filed with the FCC
within thirty (30) days after execution hereof.

         5.13.    Environmental Matters.

         (a) The operations of Borrower and each other Company comply in all
respects with all Environmental Laws and all other applicable Requirements of
Law concerning environmental health and safety, except for such non-compliance
which may not result in liability in excess of Twenty Million Dollars
($20,000,000).

         (b) Except where the failure to obtain would not have a Material
Adverse Effect, Borrower and each other Company have obtained or applied for all
environmental, health and safety permits necessary for their operations. With
respect to all such permits which have been obtained, all such permits are in
good standing other than those which have expired as to which applications for
renewal or extension are pending. With respect to all such permits which have
been obtained and those which have expired as to which applications for renewal
or extension have been made, Borrower and each other Company are in compliance
with all terms and conditions 


                                     - 58 -



<PAGE>   65


of such permits except where the failure of such compliance could not be
reasonably expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

         (c) Except as set forth on Exhibit O, neither Borrower nor any other
Company nor any of their present property or operations (as well as their past
property or operations) is subject to any outstanding written order from or
agreement with any Tribunal or other Person or subject to any judicial or
docketed administrative proceeding respecting (i) any Environmental Law or any
other environmental or health or safety Requirement of Law, the result of which

liability in excess of Twenty Million Dollars ($20,000,000).

         (d) Except as set forth on Exhibit O, there are no conditions or
circumstances associated with any property of Borrower or any other Company
formerly owned or operated by Borrower or any other Company or any of its
predecessors or with the former operations, including off-site disposal
practices, of Borrower or any other Company or its predecessors which could
reasonably be expected to give rise to Environmental Claims which could result
in liability in excess of Twenty Million Dollars ($20,000,000).

         (e) Except as set forth on Exhibit O, there are no conditions or
circumstances which may give rise to any Environmental Claim arising from the
operations of Borrower or any other Company which could reasonably be expected

employees of the existence, if any, of any health hazard arising from the
conditions of its employment and have met all notification requirements under

date given. No Plan which is subject to Section 412 of the Code has been
terminated nor has any accumulated funding deficiency (as defined in Section
412(a) of the Code) been incurred (without regard to any waiver granted under
Section 412 of the Code) nor has any funding waiver from the IRS been received
or requested. Neither Borrower nor any member of its Controlled Group has failed

of the Code and Section 302 of ERISA or the terms of any Plan. There has been no
ERISA Event or any event requiring disclosure under ERISA with respect to any
Plan or trust maintained pursuant to any Plan of Borrower or any member of its
Controlled Group. The value of the assets of each Plan (other than a
Multiemployer Plan) equalled or exceeded the present value of the benefit
liabilities, as defined in Title IV of ERISA, of each such Plan as of the most
recent valuation date using Plan actuarial assumptions at such date. There are
no pending or threatened claims, lawsuits or actions (other than routine claims
for benefits in the ordinary course) asserted or instituted against and neither
Borrower nor any member of its Controlled Group has knowledge of any threatened
litigation or claims against the assets of any Plan or trust maintained pursuant
to any Plan or against any fiduciary of such Plan or such trust with respect to
the operation of such Plan or such trust. Neither Borrower nor any member of its
Controlled Group has engaged in any prohibited transaction, within the meaning
of Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code, in connection with any Plan
which has not been corrected. Neither Borrower nor any member of its Controlled
Group (i) has incurred or reasonably expects to incur (A) any liability under
Title IV of ERISA (other than premiums due under Section 4007 of ERISA to the
PBGC), (B) any withdrawal liability (and no event has occurred which with the
giving of notice under Section 4219 of ERISA would result in such liability)
under Section 4201 of ERISA as a result of a complete or partial withdrawal
(within the meaning of Section 4203 or 4205 of ERISA) from a Multiemployer Plan
which has not been paid in full or (C) any liability under Section 4062 of ERISA
to the PBGC or to a trustee appointed under Section 4042 of ERISA which has not
been paid in full or (ii) has withdrawn from any Multiemployer Plan. Neither
Borrower nor any member of its Controlled Group nor any organization to which
Borrower or any member of its Controlled Group is a successor or parent
corporation within the meaning of ERISA Section 4069(b) has engaged in a
transaction within the meaning of Section 4069 of ERISA. Neither Borrower nor
any member of its Controlled Group maintains or has established any Plan which
constitutes a welfare benefit plan within the meaning of Section 3(1) of ERISA
which provides for continuing health, medical or hospitalization benefits or
coverage for any participant or any beneficiary of any participant after such
participant's termination of employment except (i) as may be required by the
Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, as amended ("COBRA"),
and the regulations thereunder, (ii) to the extent that the full cost thereof is
borne by the participant or beneficiary or (iii) any such arrangement (or the
liability associated with such arrangement) which would not be required to be
disclosed on Borrower's consolidated financial statements pursuant to GAAP.
Borrower and each member of its Controlled Group which maintains a welfare
benefit plan within the meaning of Section 3(1) of ERISA has complied with all
applicable notice and continuation requirements of COBRA and the regulations
thereunder except where the failure to so comply could not result in the loss of
a tax deduction or imposition of a tax or other penalty on Borrower or any
member of its Controlled Group. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary,
no statement, representation or warranty contained in this Section 5.14 shall be
deemed to be or to have been false, misleading or erroneous in any material
respect when made if the effect of the failure of such statement, representation
or warranty to be true and correct would not have a reasonable likelihood of
resulting in liability to Borrower or any member of its Controlled Group,
individually or in the aggregate, in excess of Twenty Million Dollars
($20,000,000).

automatically terminate concurrently therewith and the Obligation shall
thereupon become due and payable concurrently therewith, without any action by

shall, at the request of, Determining Lenders, do any one or more of the
following, without diligence, presentment, demand, protest, notice of protest,
acceleration or intent to accelerate, or notice of any other kind, all of which
are hereby expressly waived:

                  (i)   Acceleration. Declare the entire unpaid balance of the
         Obligation (which shall include, without limitation, the aggregate
         amount of all obligations with respect to outstanding Letters of
         Credit), or any part thereof, immediately due and payable, whereupon it
         shall be due and payable.

                 (ii)   Termination. Terminate all or any portion of the

<PAGE>   70

                 (iv)   Letters of Credit. If any Letter of Credit shall be then
         outstanding, make demand upon Borrower to, and forthwith upon such
         demand, Borrower shall, pay to Administrative Lender in same day funds
         at the office of Administrative Lender in such demand, for deposit in
         the L/C Cash Collateral Account, an amount equal to the maximum amount
         available to be drawn under the Letters of Credit then outstanding,
         less any funds previously deposited by Borrower, and then-remaining on
         deposit, in the L/C Cash Collateral Account in connection with such
         Letters of Credit.

                  (v)   Rights. Exercise any and all Rights afforded by the Laws
         of the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction, as Administrative
         Lender shall deem appropriate, including, but not limited to, the UCC,
         or by any of the Loan Documents, or by Law or equity, or otherwise.

                 (vi)   Guaranties. Exercise any and all Rights under the
          Guaranties.

                  (vii) Offset. Exercise the Rights of offset and/or banker's
         Lien against the interest of Borrower or any Subsidiary in and to every
         account with any Lender or any participant, and other property in
         possession of any Lender or any participant, to the full extent of the
         Obligation.

         (b) Lenders Not In Control. None of the covenants or other provisions
contained in this Agreement shall, or shall be deemed to, give Lenders the
Rights or power to exercise control over the affairs and/or management of
Borrower or any Subsidiary of Borrower, the power of Lenders being limited to
the Right to exercise the remedies provided in the other subparagraphs and
subsections of this Section; provided that, if any Lender becomes the owner of
any stock, or other equity interest in, any Person whether through foreclosure
or otherwise, such Lender shall be entitled to exercise such legal Rights as it
may have by being an owner of such stock, or other equity interest in, such
Person.

         (c) Waivers. The acceptance by Administrative Lender or any Lender at
any time and from time to time of part payment on the Obligation shall not be
deemed to be a waiver of any Event of Default then existing. No waiver by
Administrative Lender or any Lender of any particular Event of Default shall be
deemed to be a waiver of any Event of Default other than said particular Event
of Default. No delay or omission by any Lender or Administrative Lender in
exercising any Right under the Loan Documents shall impair such Right or be
construed as a waiver thereof or an acquiescence therein, nor shall any single
or partial exercise of any such Right preclude any other or further exercise
thereof, or the exercise of any other Right under the Loan Documents or
otherwise.

         (d) Cumulative Rights. All Rights available to Administrative Lender
and Lenders under the Loan Documents shall be cumulative of and in addition to
all other Rights granted to Administrative Lender and Lenders at Law or in
equity, whether or not the Obligation shall be due 


                                     - 64 -

and payable and whether or not Administrative Lender or any Lender shall have
instituted any suit for collection or other action in connection with the Loan
Documents.

         (e) Expenditures by Lenders. After the occurrence of an Event of
Default, any sums spent by Administrative Lender or any Lender pursuant to the
exercise of any Right provided herein shall become part of the Obligation and
shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the lesser of (i) the Domestic
Rate plus 2% or (ii) the Highest Lawful Rate from the date spent until the date
repaid by Borrower.


                                  ARTICLE VII.

                             AGREEMENT AMONG LENDERS

         7.1.     Agreement Among Lenders.  Lenders agree among themselves that:

         (a) Administrative Lender. Each Lender hereby appoints NationsBank as
its nominee in its name and on its behalf, to receive all documents and items to
be furnished hereunder; to act as nominee for and on behalf of all Lenders in
and under all the Loan Documents; to hold in trust for the benefit of Lenders
monies received under all Loan Documents (but without creating any trustee
relationship between Administrative Lender and Lenders other than in respect of
the holding of such monies); to take such action as may be requested by
Determining Lenders, provided that, unless and until Administrative Lender shall
have received such requests, Administrative Lender may take such action, or
refrain from taking such action, as it may deem advisable and in the best
interests of Lenders, provided, further, Administrative Lender shall not be
required to take any action which exposes Administrative Lender to personal
liability or which is contrary to this Agreement or applicable Law; to arrange
the means whereby the proceeds of Loans of Lenders are to be made available to
Borrower; to, except as otherwise specifically provided herein, promptly
distribute to each Lender, at such Lender's principal office, information,
requests, documents and items received from Borrower and others, and its share
of each Loan payment and such other payments owing to it pursuant to this
Agreement and the other Loan Documents; and to deliver to Borrower and others,
requests, demands, approvals and consents received from Lenders. Administrative
Lender shall have no trustee or other fiduciary relationship in respect of any
Lender by reason of this Agreement or any other Loan Document. The duties of
Administrative Lender under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents are
mechanical in nature.

         (b) Replacement of Administrative Lender. Should NationsBank or any
successor Administrative Lender ever cease to be a Lender herein (and/or sell by
participation 100% of its Commitment), or should NationsBank or any successor
Administrative Lender ever resign as Administrative Lender (which resignation
may not occur earlier than 30 days after Administrative Lender's giving of
notice of resignation), or should NationsBank or any successor Administrative
Lender ever be removed with or without cause by Determining Lenders, then the
Lender 


                                     - 65 -



<PAGE>   72

appointed by Determining Lenders shall forthwith become Administrative
Lender, and each Company and Lenders shall execute such documents as such Lender
may reasonably request to reflect such change in and under the Loan Documents.
Any resignation or removal of NationsBank or any successor Administrative Lender
shall become effective upon the appointment by Determining Lenders of a
successor Administrative Lender and Determining Lenders agree to promptly
appoint a successor Administrative Lender; provided that, if Determining Lenders
fail for any reason to appoint a successor within 60 days after such removal or
resignation, then NationsBank or any successor Administrative Lender (as the
case may be) shall thereafter have no duty or obligation to act as
Administrative Lender hereunder, provided NationsBank or any such successor
Administrative Lender (as the case may be) shall have appointed a successor.

         (c) Expenses. Each Lender shall pay its pro rata part of any reasonably
necessary expenses incurred by Administrative Lender in connection with any of
the Loan Documents (other than the initial preparation and negotiation of this
Agreement and the other Loan Documents) if Administrative Lender does not
receive reimbursement therefor from other sources within 60 days after the date
incurred. Any amount so paid by Lenders to Administrative Lender shall be
returned by Administrative Lender pro rata to each paying Lender to the extent
later paid by Borrower to Administrative Lender.

         (d) Delegation of Duties. Administrative Lender may execute any of its
duties hereunder by or through officers, directors, employees, attorneys or
agents, and shall be entitled to (and shall be protected in relying upon) advice
of counsel concerning all matters pertaining to its duties hereunder.

         (e) Reliance by Administrative Lender. Administrative Lender and its
officers, directors, employees, attorneys and agents shall be entitled to rely
and shall be fully protected in relying on any writing, resolution, notice,
consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, cablegram, telegram, telex or teletype
message, statement, order, or other document or conversation believed by it or
them in good faith to be genuine and correct and to have been signed or made by
the proper Person and, with respect to legal matters, upon opinions of counsel
selected by Administrative Lender. Administrative Lender may deem and treat the
payee of any Note as the owner thereof for all purposes hereof unless
Administrative Lender shall receive written notice to the contrary from the
payee of any Note.

         (f) Limitation of Administrative Lender's Liability. Neither
Administrative Lender nor any of its officers, directors, employees, attorneys
or agents shall be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or
them hereunder in good faith and believed by it or them to be within the
discretion or power conferred upon it or them by the Loan Documents or be
responsible for the consequences of any error of judgment. Except as set forth
in Section 7.1(a), Administrative Lender shall be under no duty to enforce any
Rights with respect to any of the Loans or the security therefor. Administrative
Lender shall not be compelled to do any act hereunder or to take any action
towards the execution or enforcement of the powers hereby created or to
prosecute or defend any suit in respect hereof, unless indemnified to its
satisfaction (but 



                                     - 66 -



<PAGE>   73

excluding indemnification for gross negligence or wilful misconduct of
Administrative Lender) against loss, cost, liability and expense. Administrative
Lender shall not be responsible in any manner to any Lender for the
effectiveness, enforceability, genuineness, validity or due execution (other
than its own) of any of the Loan Documents or for any representation, warranty,
document, certificate, report or statement made herein or furnished under or in
connection with any of the Loan Documents by any other Person, or be under any
obligation to any Lender to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance or
observation of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of any of the Loan
Documents on the part of Borrower. TO THE EXTENT ADMINISTRATIVE LENDER IS NOT
REIMBURSED BY BORROWER THEREFOR, EACH LENDER, INCLUDING NATIONSBANK, SEVERALLY
AGREES TO INDEMNIFY, PRO RATA, ADMINISTRATIVE LENDER AND HOLD IT HARMLESS FROM
AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL LIABILITIES, OBLIGATIONS, LOSSES, DAMAGES, PENALTIES,
ACTIONS, JUDGMENTS, SUITS, COSTS, EXPENSES AND/OR DISBURSEMENTS OF ANY KIND OR
NATURE WHATSOEVER WHICH MAY BE IMPOSED ON, ASSERTED AGAINST, OR INCURRED BY
ADMINISTRATIVE LENDER IN ANY WAY RELATING TO OR ARISING OUT OF THE LOAN
DOCUMENTS OR ANY ACTION TAKEN OR OMITTED BY ADMINISTRATIVE LENDER UNDER THE LOAN
DOCUMENTS (INCLUDING ANY NEGLIGENT ACTION OR INACTION OF ADMINISTRATIVE LENDER),
EXCEPT AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT THE SAME RESULT FROM GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL
MISCONDUCT BY ADMINISTRATIVE LENDER.

         (g) Liability Among Lenders. No Lender shall incur any liability to any
other Lender except for acts or omissions in bad faith, and except as provided
in the last sentence of Section 7.1(f).

         (h) Liability for Other Lenders. No Lender shall incur any liability to
any Company or any other Person for any act or omission of any other Lender.

         (i) Rights as Lender. With respect to its Commitment and Loans made by
it, Administrative Lender shall have the same Rights as a Lender and may
exercise the same as though it were not Administrative Lender, and the term
"Lender" or "Lenders" shall, unless the context otherwise indicates, include
Administrative Lender in its individual capacity. Administrative Lender may
accept deposits from, act as trustee under indentures of, and generally engage
in any kind of business with, Borrower and any Person who may do business with
or own securities of Borrower all as if Administrative Lender were not
Administrative Lender hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to
Lenders.

         7.2. Lender Credit Decision. Each Lender acknowledges that it has,
independently and without reliance upon Administrative Lender or any other
Lender and based upon the financial statements referred to in Section 5.2 and
such other documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own
credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender also
acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon
Administrative Lender or any other Lender and based upon such documents and
information as it shall deem appropriate at 


                                     - 67 -



<PAGE>   74

the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking
action under this Agreement.

         7.3. Benefits of Article. None of the provisions of this Article VII
shall inure to the benefit of Borrower or any Subsidiary, or any Person other
than Lenders; consequently, neither Borrower or any Subsidiary, nor any other
Person, shall be entitled to rely upon, or to raise as a defense, in any manner
whatsoever, the failure of any Lender to comply with such provisions.


                                  ARTICLE VIII.

                                  MISCELLANEOUS

         8.1. Accounting Terms. All accounting and financial terms used herein,
and the compliance with each covenant contained herein which relates to
financial matters, shall be determined in accordance with GAAP, except to the

or waivers of, any of the Loan Documents, and the consideration of legal

Administrative Lender and each Lender in connection with the enforcement of the
Loan Documents following the occurrence of an Event of Default, including,
without limitation, the reasonable fees and expenses of Special Counsel and each
Lender with respect thereto. The obligations of Borrower under this Section 8.10
shall survive any termination of this Agreement.

         8.11. Right of Set-off. Upon (a) the occurrence and during the
continuance of any Event of Default and (b) with respect to Events of Default
other than as specified in subparagraph (d) or (e) of Section 6.1, the making of

                                     - 69 -

and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by Law, to set off and
apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or
final) at any time held and other indebtedness at any time owing by such Lender
to or for the credit or the account of Borrower against any and all of the
Obligations of Borrower, irrespective of whether Administrative Lender or such
Lender shall have made any demand under this Agreement and although such
Obligations may be unmatured. Each Lender agrees promptly to notify Borrower
after any such set-off and application made by such Lender; provided, however,
that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such
set-off and application. The rights of each Lender under this Section are in
addition to other rights and remedies (including, without limitation, other
rights of set-off) that such Lender may have.

         8.12. Governing Law. THIS AGREEMENT AND ALL OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS SHALL
BE DEEMED CONTRACTS MADE UNDER THE LAWS OF TEXAS AND SHALL BE CONSTRUED AND
ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH AND GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF TEXAS, EXCEPT TO THE
EXTENT FEDERAL LAWS GOVERN THE VALIDITY, CONSTRUCTION, ENFORCEMENT AND
INTERPRETATION OF ALL OR ANY PART OF THIS AGREEMENT AND ALL OTHER LOAN
DOCUMENTS. WITHOUT EXCLUDING ANY OTHER JURISDICTION, BORROWER AGREES THAT THE
COURTS OF TEXAS WILL HAVE JURISDICTION OVER PROCEEDINGS IN CONNECTION HEREWITH.
THIS AGREEMENT AND ALL OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS SHALL BE PERFORMABLE IN DALLAS
COUNTY, TEXAS.

         8.13. Usury Provision. It is not the intention of any of the parties to
this Agreement to make an agreement violative of the Laws of any applicable
jurisdiction relating to usury. Regardless of any provision in any of the Loan
Documents, no Lender shall ever be entitled to receive, collect or apply, as
interest on the Obligation, any amount in excess of the Maximum Amount. If any
Lender ever receives, collects or applies, as interest, any such excess, such
amount which would be excessive interest shall be deemed a partial repayment of
principal and treated hereunder as such; and if principal is paid in full, any
remaining excess shall be paid to Borrower. In determining whether or not the
interest paid or payable, under any specific contingency, exceeds the Maximum
Amount, Borrower and Lenders shall, to the maximum extent permitted under
Applicable Laws, (i) characterize any nonprincipal payment as an expense, fee or
premium rather than as interest, (ii) exclude voluntary prepayments and the
effect thereof, and (iii) amortize, prorate, allocate and spread in equal parts,
the total amount of interest throughout the entire contemplated term of the
Obligation so that the interest rate is uniform throughout the entire term of
the Obligation; provided that if the Obligation is paid and performed in full
prior to the end of the full contemplated term thereof, and if the interest
received for the actual period of existence thereof exceeds the Maximum Amount,
Lenders shall refund to Borrower the amount of such excess or credit the amount
of such excess against the total principal amount owing, and, in such event, no
Lender shall be subject to any penalties provided by any Laws for contracting
for, charging or receiving interest in excess of the Maximum Amount. This
Section 8.13 shall 


                                     - 70 -



<PAGE>   77

control every other provision of all agreements among the parties to this 
Agreement pertaining to the transactions contemplated by or contained in the 
Loan Documents.

         8.14.    Indemnity.

         (A) BORROWER AGREES TO, AND DOES INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS EACH
LENDER AGAINST ANY AND ALL LIABILITIES, OBLIGATIONS, LOSSES, DAMAGES, PENALTIES,
ACTIONS, JUDGMENTS, SUITS, CLAIMS, COSTS, EXPENSES AND DISBURSEMENTS OF ANY KIND
OR NATURE WHATSOEVER WHICH MAY BE IMPOSED ON, INCURRED BY, OR ASSERTED AGAINST
ANY LENDER IN ANY WAY RELATING TO OR ARISING OUT OF ANY EVENT OF DEFAULT OR ANY
ACT OR OMISSION OR TRANSACTION OF ANY COMPANY OR ANY OF THEIR OFFICERS OR
DIRECTORS, TO THE EXTENT THAT ANY OF THE SAME RESULTS, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY,
FROM ANY CLAIMS MADE OR ACTIONS, SUITS OR PROCEEDINGS COMMENCED BY OR ON BEHALF
OF ANY PERSON OTHER THAN A LENDER OR ANY ACTION IN GOOD FAITH BROUGHT BY
BORROWER OR ANY GUARANTOR. IN ADDITION, BORROWER HEREBY AGREES TO INDEMNIFY
ADMINISTRATIVE LENDER AND EACH LENDER AND THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS,
EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS FROM, AND HOLD EACH OF THEM HARMLESS AGAINST, ANY AND ALL
LOSSES, LIABILITIES, CLAIMS, DAMAGES OR EXPENSES INCURRED BY ANY OF THEM ARISING
OUT OF OR BY REASON OF ANY INVESTIGATION OR LITIGATION OR OTHER PROCEEDINGS
(INCLUDING ANY THREATENED INVESTIGATION OR LITIGATION OR OTHER PROCEEDINGS)
RELATING TO ANY ACTUAL OR PROPOSED USE BY BORROWER OR ANY SUBSIDIARY OF THE
PROCEEDS OF ANY OF THE LOANS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE REASONABLE FEES
AND DISBURSEMENTS OF COUNSEL INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY SUCH INVESTIGATION
OR LITIGATION OR OTHER PROCEEDINGS (BUT EXCLUDING ANY SUCH LOSSES, LIABILITIES,
CLAIMS, DAMAGES OR EXPENSES INCURRED BY REASON OF THE GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR
WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OF THE PERSON TO BE INDEMNIFIED, BUT SPECIFICALLY INCLUDING
ANY SUCH LOSSES, LIABILITIES, CLAIMS, DAMAGES OR EXPENSES INCURRED BY REASON OF
MERE NEGLIGENCE OF THE PERSON TO BE INDEMNIFIED).

         (b) If (i) any payment of principal of, or Conversion of, any LIBOR
Loan is made by Borrower to or for the account of a Lender other than on the
last day of the Interest Period for such Loan, as a result of a payment or
Conversion pursuant to Section 2.7, 2.8, 2.9(d), 2.20 or 4.13, acceleration of
the maturity of the Loans pursuant to Section 6.1, or for any other reason, (ii)
Borrower shall fail to Convert into or continue a LIBOR Loan or borrow a LIBOR
Loan on the date specified in the notice thereof (other than a result of any
wrongful act or omission of any Lender), or (iii) any Lender shall sell its
rights and obligations under this Agreement to an Eligible Assignee within 180
days after the Agreement Date resulting in breakage of a LIBOR Loan made by such
selling Lender prior to the last day of the Interest Period therefor, Borrower
shall, upon 


                                     - 71 -



<PAGE>   78


demand by such Lender (with a copy of such demand to Administrative Lender), 
pay to Administrative Lender for the account of such Lender any and all 
amounts required to compensate such Lender for any and all additional losses, 
costs and expenses that it may reasonably incur as a result of such payment, 
Conversion or failure to Convert or continue, failure to borrow or breakage 
cost as a result of such sale, including, without limitation (except that 
with respect to clause (iii) immediately preceding the following shall be the 
only loss, cost or expense to be received by a selling Lender), any loss
(excluding loss of anticipated profits), cost or expense incurred by reason of
the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by any
Lender to fund or maintain such Loan. Such Lender claiming compensation under
this Section 8.14(b) shall deliver to Borrower and Administrative Lender a
certificate setting forth calculation of the additional amounts or amounts to
be paid to it hereunder which shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest
error. In determining such amount, such Lender may use any reasonable averaging
and attribution methods.

         (c) The obligations of Borrower under this Section 8.14 shall survive
any termination of this Agreement.

         8.15. Severability. If any provision of any of the Loan Documents is
held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under present or future Laws during
the term thereof, such provision shall be fully severable, the appropriate Loan
Document shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or
unenforceable provision had never comprised a part thereof, and the remaining
provisions thereof shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be
affected by the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance
therefrom. Furthermore, in lieu of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable
provision there shall be added automatically as a part of such Loan Document a
provision as similar in terms to the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision
as may be possible and legal, valid and enforceable.

         8.16.    Assignments and Participations.

         (a) Each Lender, with the prior written consent of Borrower and
Administrative Lender (which consents shall not be unreasonably withheld,
provided that no consent of Borrower shall be required for any assignment during
any time that an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing), may assign to
one or more banks or other entities all or a portion of its Rights and
obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (including,
without limitation, all or a portion of its Commitment, the Loans owing to it
and its participation in any Letters of Credit); provided, however, that (i)
each such assignment shall be of a uniform, and not a varying, percentage of all
of the assigning Lender's Rights and obligations under and in respect of all of
its Commitment, (ii) except in the case of an assignment to a Person that,
immediately prior to such assignment, was a Lender, the amount of the Commitment
of the assigning Lender being assigned pursuant to each such assignment
(determined as of the date of the Assignment and Acceptance with respect to such
assignment) shall in no event be less than the lesser of (A) the entire
Commitment of such Lender at such time or (B) $10,000,000, (iii) each such
assignment shall be to an Eligible Assignee and (iv) the parties to each such
assignment shall execute and 


                                     - 72 -

Register, an Assignment and Acceptance, together with a processing and
recordation fee of $3,500. Upon such execution, delivery, acceptance and

Assignment and Acceptance, the date of acceptance thereof by Administrative
Lender, (x) the assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent
that Rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned to it pursuant to such
Assignment and Acceptance, have the Rights and obligations of a Lender
hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and (y) the Lender assignor
thereunder shall, to the extent that Rights and obligations hereunder have been
assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance, relinquish its
Rights and be released from its obligations under this Agreement and under the
other Loan Documents (and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance covering
all or the remaining portion of an assigning Lender's Rights and obligations
under this Agreement and under the other Loan Documents, such Lender shall
cease to be a party hereto, except that such Lender shall continue to be
entitled to the Rights available to Lenders pursuant to Sections 2.9, 2.11,
2.13(d), 8.10 and 8.14).

         (b) By executing and delivering an Assignment and Acceptance, the

in such Assignment and Acceptance, such assigning Lender makes no representation
or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to any statements,

Assignee; (vi) such assignee appoints and authorizes Administrative Lender to
take such action as nominee on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this
Agreement and the other Loan Documents as are delegated to Administrative Lender
by the terms hereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental
thereto; and (vii) such assignee agrees that it will perform in accordance with
its terms all of the obligations that by the terms of this Agreement and the

         (c) Administrative Lender shall maintain at its address referred to in
Section 8.6 a copy of each Assignment and Acceptance delivered to and accepted
by it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of Lenders
and the Commitment of, and principal amount of the Loans owing to, each Lender

conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error, and Borrower,
Administrative Lender and Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded

Administrative Lender shall, if such Assignment and Acceptance has been
completed and is in substantially the form of Exhibit A, (i) accept such
Assignment and Acceptance, (ii) record the information contained therein in the
Register and (iii) give prompt notice thereof to Borrower. Within five (5)

Commitment, a replacement Revolving Credit Note in the amount of the Commitment
retained by the Lender assignor (such Revolving Credit Note to be in exchange
for, but not payment of, the Revolving Credit Note held by such Lender).

         (e) Notwithstanding any other provision set forth in this Agreement to
the contrary, any Lender may at any time and from time to time assign, as
collateral or otherwise in the ordinary course of business of such Lender, all
or any portion of its Rights under the Loan Documents (including without
limitation rights to payment of principal and interest under such Lender's
Revolving Credit Note) in favor of any Federal Reserve Bank in accordance with

Issuing Bank, Swing Line Bank, Borrower and other Lenders.

entities in or to all or a portion of its Rights and obligations under this

without limitation, its Commitment to Borrower hereunder) shall remain
unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties
hereto for the performance of such obligations, (iii) Borrower, Administrative
Lender and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with
such Lender in connection with such Lender's Rights and obligations under this

right to approve any amendment or waiver of any provision of any Loan Document,
or any consent to any departure by any party thereto, except to the extent that
such amendment, waiver or consent would 


                                     - 74 -



<PAGE>   81


reduce or increase the principal of, or interest on, the Loans or any fees or
other amounts payable hereunder, in each case to the extent subject to such
participation, postpone any date fixed for any payment of principal of, or
interest on, the Loans or any fees or other amounts payable hereunder, in each
case to the extent subject to such participation.

         (g) Any Lender may, in connection with any assignment or participation
or proposed assignment or participation pursuant to this Section 8.16, disclose
to the assignee or participant or proposed assignee or participant, any
information relating to Borrower furnished to such Lender by or on behalf of
Borrower; provided, however, that, prior to any such disclosure, the assignee or
participant or proposed assignee or participant shall agree to preserve the
confidentiality of any confidential information to the extent required of
Lenders hereunder pursuant to Section 8.19.

         8.17. No Liability of Issuing Bank. Borrower assumes all risks of the

Lender nor any of their respective officers or directors shall be liable or
responsible for: (a) the use that may be made of any Letter of Credit or any
acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee in connection therewith; (b)
the validity, sufficiency or genuineness of documents, or of any endorsement
thereon, even if such documents should prove to be in any or all respects
invalid, insufficient, fraudulent or forged; (c) payment by Issuing Bank
against presentation of documents that do not comply with the terms of a Letter
of Credit, including failure of any documents to bear any reference or adequate
reference to such Letter of Credit, except, as to the Issuing Bank only, for
any payment made upon Issuing Bank's gross negligence or willful misconduct; or
(d) any other circumstances whatsoever in making or failing to make payment
under any Letter of Credit, except that Borrower shall have a claim against
Issuing Bank, and Issuing Bank shall be liable to Borrower, to the extent of
any direct, but not consequential, damages suffered by Borrower that Borrower
proves were caused by (i) Issuing Bank's willful misconduct or gross negligence
in determining whether documents presented under any Letter of Credit comply
with the terms of such Letter of Credit or (ii) Issuing Bank's willful failure
to make lawful payment under a Letter of Credit after the presentation to it of
a draft and certificates strictly complying with the terms and conditions of
such Letter of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing,
Issuing Bank may accept documents that appear on their face to be in order,
without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or
information to the contrary.

         8.18. Amendments, Etc. No amendment or waiver of any provision of this
Agreement, nor consent to any departure by Borrower therefrom, shall in any
event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and such amendment,
waiver or consent shall be consented to in one or more writings signed by or
consented to by Determining Lenders, and then such waiver or consent shall be
effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which
given; provided, however, that no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in
writing and signed by or consented to by all Lenders, do any of the following:

the percentage of the Commitments or of the aggregate unpaid principal amount of
the Loans, or the number of Lenders, that shall be required for Lenders or

further, that no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing and
signed by Administrative Lender in addition to Lenders required above to take
such action, affect the rights or duties of Administrative Lender under this
Agreement.

         8.19. Confidentiality. Each Lender and Administrative Lender agrees (on
behalf of itself and each of its Affiliates, directors, officers, employees and
representatives) to use reasonable precautions to keep confidential, in
