the Michigan Business Corporation Act and the International Business Companies
Act ("IBCA"), at the Effective Time, Merger Sub will be merged with and into
GET and the separate existence of Merger Sub will cease and GET will continue
as the Surviving Corporation.

                         (1) the Surviving Corporation will continue its

purposes of the constituent corporation;

vested by deed or otherwise in the constituent corporation will not revert or

                                       6

<PAGE>   12


               (3) the Surviving Corporation will by operation of law assume
all of the liabilities and duties of the constituent corporation.

           (c) The Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association of the
Surviving Corporation will be substantially consistent with the Articles of
Incorporation and Bylaws of Merger Sub and will remain such until amended.

           (d) The directors and officers of Merger Sub immediately prior to
the Effective Time will be the directors and officers of the Surviving
Corporation, and will serve as such until their successors are duly elected and
qualified in the manner provided in the Constitution of the Surviving
Corporation, or their earlier death, resignation or removal. Prior to the
Effective Time, Merger Sub will have the right, in its sole discretion, to add
to or delete from its directors and officers.

       2.2 Effectiveness of the Merger. Articles of Merger will be filed with
the Registrar of Companies of the British Virgin Islands simultaneously with
the Closing. The Merger will become effective at the time at which the Articles
of Merger are so filed.

3.     Conversion of GET Shares.

       3.1 Conversion of GET Shares and GET Options. At the Effective Time, by
virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of any holder of GET
Shares, each GET Share will be converted into and represent the right to
receive that fraction of a Jabil Share as is equal to the quotient of the GET
Stock Price divided by the Jabil Stock Price. For purposes of such calculation,
(a) the "Jabil Stock Price" shall be equal to the average closing price of
Jabil Shares during the 30-trading day period ending five business days before
the Closing Date; provided, however, that if such average closing price of
Jabil Shares is less than $43.50 per share, then the Jabil Stock Price shall be
$43.50, and if such average closing price is greater than $55, then such Jabil
Stock Price shall be $55, and (b) the "GET Stock Price" shall equal to the
quotient obtained by dividing $245,700,000 by the number of GET Shares
outstanding on the date of this Agreement, calculated on a fully diluted basis
using the treasury stock method. The method by which GET Shares will be
converted into Jabil Shares is that method illustrated in Attachment 1 to this
Agreement. Attachment 1 is included in this Agreement by way of example only
and will not be used for any purpose other than for describing the methodology
by which the calculations required by this Section 3.1 will be performed. Each
outstanding share of Merger Sub shall continue to be outstanding and shall
represent one share of the Surviving Corporation. The number of Jabil Shares to
be issued to the Shareholders in the Merger pursuant to this Section 3.1 will
be appropriately adjusted to reflect fully the effect of any stock split,
reverse stock split, stock dividend (including any dividend or distribution of
securities convertible into Jabil Shares), reorganization, recapitalization, or
other like change with respect to Jabil Shares as to which the record date
occurs after the date hereof and prior to the Effective Time. At the Effective
Time, each outstanding option to purchase GET Shares, whether vested or
unvested, will become exercisable for Jabil Shares, subject to the vesting
provisions of the agreements and plans applicable to such options. Each option
to purchase GET Shares will continue to have, and be subject to, the same terms
and conditions set forth in such applicable agreements and plans,

                                       7


<PAGE>   13

except that (x) the exercise price per share for Jabil Shares issuable upon
exercise of each such option will be equal to the existing exercise price per
Share multiplied by the quotient of the Jabil Stock Price divided by the GET
Stock Price, and (y) the number of Jabil Shares subject to each such option
will be equal to the existing number of GET Shares subject to such option
multiplied by the quotient of the GET Stock Price divided by the Jabil Stock
Price.

       3.2 Issuance of Jabil Shares; Escrow of Jabil Shares.

           (a) At and after the Effective Time, upon surrender, in accordance
with the terms and conditions of the "Transmittal Letter", the form of which is
attached as Exhibit A, to Jabil by each of the Shareholders of certificates for
the number of GET Shares set forth opposite such Shareholder's name on Schedule
3.2 hereto, representing all of the GET Shares owned by such Shareholder, Jabil
shall promptly issue and deliver directly to each such Shareholder a
certificate, registered in the name of such Shareholder and representing
approximately ninety (90%) percent of the total number of Jabil Shares into
which such Shareholder's GET Shares have been converted, rounded up to the
nearest whole share, as set forth opposite such Shareholder's name on Schedule
3.2 (subject to adjustment as set forth in Section 3.1 hereof).

           (b) In order to provide for the indemnity obligations of the
Shareholders hereunder, Jabil shall deliver to the Escrow Agent a certificate
representing the number of Jabil Shares as provided below. The Jabil Shares
placed in escrow by Jabil shall represent ten percent (10%) of the total number
of Jabil Shares into which the GET Shares have been converted, rounded down to
the nearest whole share, (subject to adjustments as set forth in Section 3.1
hereof), (together with the Dividend Account (as defined in the Escrow
Agreement) and any Dividend Shares (as defined in the Escrow Agreement (such
shares, the Dividend Account and the Dividend Shares are collectively the
"Escrow Shares")). The Escrow Agent shall hold and administer the Escrow Shares
in accordance with the terms of an escrow agreement dated as of the Effective
Date among Jabil, Mr. Fang, as representative of the Shareholders, and the
Escrow Agent (the "Escrow Agreement") in the form of Exhibit B attached hereto.
The parties acknowledge and agree that, for convenience purposes only, Jabil
will issue the certificate evidencing the Escrow Shares in the name of the
Escrow Agent, as escrow agent under the Escrow Agreement. The parties further
acknowledge and agree that the Shareholders are the beneficial owners of the
Escrow Shares, subject to the terms and conditions of the Escrow Agreement.

       3.3 Exchange of GET Shares. After the Effective Time, Equiserve will act
as transfer agent for and on behalf of Jabil, in effecting the exchange of
Jabil Shares for certificates that, before the Effective Time, represented GET
Shares entitled to be exchanged for Jabil Shares pursuant to Sections 3.1 and
3.2 above. Upon the surrender and exchange of such holder's Share certificates,
and delivery to Equiserve of executed Transmittal Letters, the holder will
receive, without interest, that number of Jabil Shares to which such holder is
entitled at such time under this Agreement, and each such certificate will be
immediately cancelled. Until so surrendered and exchanged, (1) each such
certificate will be deemed converted, and will represent solely the right to
receive the Jabil Shares with respect to such certificate pursuant to Sections
3.1 and 3.2

                                       8


<PAGE>   14

above; and (2) holders of such certificates will not receive the Jabil Shares
to which they would otherwise be entitled.

       3.4 Closing of Corporation's Transfer Books. At the Effective Time, each
holder of a certificate or certificates that represents GET Shares will cease
to have any rights as a shareholder of GET, except for the right to surrender
such holder's certificate or certificates in exchange for Jabil Shares provided
pursuant to Sections 3.1 and 3.2 above. The stock transfer books of GET will be
closed and no transfer of GET Shares will thereafter be made. If, after the
Effective Time, certificates representing GET Shares are presented to the
Surviving Corporation or Equiserve they will be cancelled and exchanged for
Jabil Shares as provided in Sections 3.1 and 3.2 above.

       3.5 Fractional Share. No fraction of a Jabil Share will be issued by
virtue of the Merger, but in lieu thereof each holder of GET Shares who would
otherwise be entitled to a fraction of a Jabil Share (after aggregating all
fractional Jabil Shares to be received by such holder) will receive from Jabil
an amount of cash (rounded to the nearest whole cent) equal to the product of
(a) such fractional share, multiplied by (b) the Jabil Stock Price.

4.     Closing.

or early termination of any applicable waiting period under the HSR Act, except
where the failure to obtain such consent, authorization or approval will not
have a material adverse effect on GET.

           (g) This Agreement and the consummation of the transactions
contemplated hereby (including without limitation the Merger) shall have been
approved by the shareholders of GET, and holders of more than 90% of the GET
Shares shall have waived, or otherwise not be entitled to assert, dissenters
rights with respect to the Merger.

           (h) GET shall have furnished Jabil with a certificate of its
officers in the form of Exhibit H.

           (i) GET's shareholders shall have taken all actions necessary so
that no agreement or arrangement of any of the Companies will cause the
Surviving Corporation or Jabil to lose any deduction due to the workings of
Section 280G of the Code.

           (j) No litigation will have been commenced and not withdrawn to
challenge the right of any party to consummate the transactions contemplated
under this Agreement and the Related Agreements, which, in the judgment of
Jabil, reasonably exercised, is reasonably likely to succeed or to result in
damages as to which Jabil has not been adequately held harmless from and
against.

           (k) Mr. Fang will have executed and delivered to Jabil the
Non-Competition Agreement in substantially the form of Exhibit K.

           (l) ***********************************************************

           (m) Jabil will have received from GET audited consolidated financial
statements of GET (with an unqualified audit opinion from Ernst & Young
thereon) for the fiscal year ended March 31, 1999. Such audited consolidated
financial statements shall present financial position, results of operations
and note disclosures consistent with those contained in the draft consolidated
financial statements provided to Jabil by GET on August 11, 1999.

       9.2 Conditions Precedent of GET. The obligations of GET under this
Agreement are subject to the satisfaction at, or prior to, the Closing Date of
the following conditions precedent (the fulfillment of any of which may be
waived in writing by GET):

           (a) terms, covenants and conditions of this Agreement and the
Related Agreements to be complied with or performed by Jabil or Merger Sub

performed by Jabil or Merger Sub, including Jabil's

and Merger Sub's timely taking of all actions and delivery of all documents
required to be taken and delivered by it under this Agreement and the Related
Agreements.

            (b) representations, warranties, disclosures and statements of
Jabil and Merger Sub contained in this Agreement and the Related Agreements
will be true and complete as of the date of this Agreement and on the Closing
Date.

            (c) will have received from HMSC an opinion in the form of Exhibit
E attached hereto.

            (d) l will have furnished GET with a certificate of its officers in
the form attached hereto as Exhibit D.

10.    Default; Termination of Agreement. 

       10.1 Default. Jabil's and GET's obligations under this Agreement are of
a special and unique character and Jabil's or GET's failure to perform its
obligations will cause irreparable injury to the other party, the amount of
which would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to estimate or determine
and which may not be adequately compensable by monetary damages alone.
Therefore, the injured party will be entitled, as a matter of course, to an
injunction, restraining order, writ of mandamus or other equitable relief from
any court of competent jurisdiction, including specific performance,
restraining any violation or threatened violation of any term of this Agreement
or any Related Agreement, or requiring compliance with or performance of any
obligation under this Agreement or such Related Agreement, by the violating
party or parties, or such other persons as the court may order. The parties'
rights under this Section 10.1 are cumulative and are in addition to the rights
and remedies otherwise available to them under Section 10.2 below, any other
provision of this Agreement, the Related Agreements and the schedules and
exhibits thereto or applicable law.

       10.2 Termination. This Agreement may be terminated at any time before
the Closing as follows:

            (a) At the election of Jabil, by notice to GET, at any time if any
of Jabil's conditions precedent to Closing, as specified in Section 9.1 above,
has not been satisfied, other than as a result of Jabil's breach of this
Agreement, as of the Closing Date or has at any time become incapable of being
satisfied (other than as a result of Jabil's breach of this Agreement) by the
Closing Date.

            (b) At the election of GET, by notice to Jabil, if any of
conditions precedent to Closing, as specified in Section 9.2 above, has not
been satisfied, other than as a result of GET's or Mr. Fang's breach of this
Agreement, as of the Closing Date or has at any time become incapable of being
satisfied (other than as a result of GET's breach of this Agreement), by the
Closing Date.

                                      33


<PAGE>   39

            (c) If this Agreement terminates in accordance with this Section
10.2, it will be null and void and have no further force or effect. Any
termination will not affect the terminating party's rights arising from any
breach or misrepresentation of any non-terminating parties. The parties' rights
under this Section 10.2 are cumulative and are in addition to the other rights
and remedies available to the parties under Section 10.1 above, any other
provision of this Agreement, the Related Agreements and the schedules and
exhibits thereto or applicable law.

            (d) At the election of either Jabil or GET, if (i) the Board of
Directors of Jabil has not approved this Agreement and the transactions
contemplated hereby by 11:59 p.m., Eastern time, on August 13, 1999, or (ii)
the Merger has not been consummated (other than as a result of such party's
breach of this Agreement) by November 1, 1999 (except that such date shall be
February 1, 2000 with respect to any delay caused by any challenge to the
Merger under the HSR Act or any other applicable antitrust or competition law).

11.    Indemnification. 

       11.1 Indemnification by the Shareholders. The Shareholders will jointly
and severally indemnify and hold Jabil and the Surviving Corporation harmless
against any Loss which may be incurred by Jabil and the Surviving Corporation
as a result of:

            (a) any breach by GET of any of its representations and warranties
under Section 5 above, or GET's breach of any agreements made in this Agreement
or any Related Agreement or the exhibits or schedules to this Agreement or any
Related Agreement;

            (b) any action, suit, proceeding, investigation, assessment or
judgment relating to any of the matters indemnified against in this Section
11.1, including Fees and Costs (whether prior to or at trial or in appellate
proceedings);

            (c) any claim made against GET by the Lemelson Foundation in a
letter dated June 15, 1999 (notwithstanding any item disclosed in the Schedules
to this Agreement);

            (d) the Hong Kong Revenue Department (or any successor agency)
successfully challenging the basis upon which GET (or any subsidiary of GET)
has, prior to the Closing, paid taxes on Combined Income, as described in item
1 of Schedule 5.11 (notwithstanding the disclosure of such item on such
schedule);

            (e) **********************************************************

            (f) any Governmental Entity challenging the methods by which GET
(or any subsidiary) obtains Chinese currency in connection with its operations
in the Peoples Republic of China (as disclosed on Schedule 5.11 and
notwithstanding such disclosure); or

            (g) any Governmental Entity challenging the methods by which GET
(or any subsidiary) reports income, makes payroll deductions or remits taxes
for Chinese employees (as disclosed on Schedule 5.8 and notwithstanding such
disclosure).

       11.2 Indemnification by Jabil. Jabil will indemnify and hold GET and the
Shareholders harmless against any Loss which may be incurred by the
Shareholders and, prior to the Closing, GET as a result of:

            (a) any breach by Jabil of any of Jabil's representations,
warranties, covenants or agreements made in this Agreement or any Related
Agreement or the exhibits or schedules to this Agreement or any Related
Agreement; or

            (b) any action, suit, proceeding, assessment or judgment relating
to any of the matters indemnified against in this Section 11.2, including Fees
and Costs (whether prior to or at trial or in appellate proceedings).

       11.3 Claims for Indemnification.

            (a) Whenever any claim is made for indemnification under this
Article 11, the person claiming such indemnification (the "Claimant") will give
notice to the party against whom indemnification is sought (the "Indemnifying
Party") promptly after the Claimant has actual knowledge of any event which
might give rise to a claim for indemnification under this Agreement; provided
that if the Claimant receives a complaint, petition or any other pleading in
connection with a claim which requires the filing of an answer or other
responsive pleading, it will furnish the Indemnifying Party with a copy of such
pleading as soon as possible after receipt.

            (b) The failure by the Claimant to give notice of a claim as
required in Section 11.3(a) above or a delay in giving such notice will not
affect the validity or amount of such claim and the indemnification obligations
of the Indemnifying Party will remain in effect as to such claim, except to the
extent that the Indemnifying Party can demonstrate that it has been materially
prejudiced or materially and adversely affected thereby.

            (c) If, after the amount of the claim of loss is specified by
Claimant, and Claimant gives notice with respect thereto to the Indemnifying
Party (the "Claim Notice"), the Indemnifying Party objects to any such claim or
amount set forth in the Claim Notice, it may give notice to Claimant advising
Claimant of its objection within twenty (20) days of the Indemnifying Party's
receipt of the Claim Notice. If no such notice is timely given by the
Indemnifying Party to Claimant, Claimant will be entitled to payment from the
Indemnifying Party pursuant to this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement in the
amount of the Loss arising out of the claim as adjusted pursuant to the terms
of the Escrow Agreement. If the Indemnifying Party advises Claimant within such
period that it objects to the claim, Claimant and the Indemnifying Party will
promptly meet and use their reasonable best efforts to settle the dispute in
writing. If Claimant and the Indemnifying Party are unable to reach agreement
within thirty (30) days after the Indemnifying Party objects to the claim, then
either party may bring an action to determine the disputed portion of such
claim of Loss, with the undisputed portion to be recovered pursuant to the
Escrow Agreement, if applicable, or this Agreement.

                                      35


<PAGE>   41

            (d) The giving of the notice by Jabil to the Representative in
accordance with Section 11.3 within the period of survival of any
representations or warranties shall toll said survival period (but only with
respect to such claim) until any liability under said notice is finally
resolved and determined.

            (e) Prior to the institution of any litigation to enforce this
Section 11.3, representatives of Jabil and the Representative shall engage in
non-binding mediation in Denver, Colorado with respect to any disputes.

       11.4 Third Party Claims. If the facts giving rise to the right of
indemnification under Sections 11.1 or 11.2 above involve any actual or
threatened claim or demand by any third party against the Claimant or any
possible claim by the Claimant against any third party ("Third-Party Claim"),
and if, within 20 days after receipt of the notice required by Section 11.3(a),
the Indemnifying Party may by notice to Claimant and at its own expense
undertake full responsibility for the defense or prosecution of such
Third-Party Claim; provided, however, that such undertaking shall not, in and
of itself, constitute any evidence or acknowledgement by any person, including,
without limitation, the Indemnifying Party, that such Third-Party Claim is an
indemnifiable claim under this Section 11. So long as the Indemnifying Party
has assumed and is conducting the defense of the Third Party Claim in
accordance with this Section the Indemnifying Party will not consent to the
entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to the Third
Party Claim without the prior written consent of Claimant (which consent shall
not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) unless the judgment or
proposed settlement involves only the payment of money damages by the
Indemnifying Party and does not impose an injunction or other equitable relief
upon Claimant. If the Indemnifying Party fails to assume the defense of such
claim within 15 business days of notice thereof, (1) the Claimant will be
entitled to defend or prosecute such Third Party Claim with counsel of its own
choice (the Fees and Costs of such defense or prosecution being indemnified
under this Section 11), (2) the Indemnifying Party at its own expense may
nevertheless participate with the Claimant in the defense or prosecution of
such Third-Party Claim and any settlement negotiations with respect thereto,
and (3) except as provided herein, the Claimant may settle the Third Party
Claim on such terms as it may choose, although it will not reach such a
settlement until it has consulted in good faith with the Indemnifying Party. An
Indemnifying Party's defense or prosecution of, or participation in, a Third
Party Claim will not in any manner relieve the Indemnifying Party of its
obligations to indemnify the Claimant under this Section 11. The Indemnifying
Party and the Claimant shall cooperate in good faith with each other in
connection with the defense or settlement or any Third Party Claim and shall
make available to each other all information necessary or, in the judgment of
the requesting party, useful to the defense or settlement of such matter.

       11.5 Limits on Indemnification. The representations and warranties of
GET and Jabil set forth in this Agreement shall survive only for a period
ending at the close of business on the date (the "Claim Termination Date") that
is the earlier of (i) the date that Jabil receives from its independent auditor
its report on Jabil's fiscal 2000 financial statements or (ii) the date 12
months after the Effective Date, and any claim for indemnification by Jabil
under Section 11.1

                                      36


<PAGE>   42

must be asserted by notice to the Representative within such period, or the
same will be null and void, provided, however, that (1) the representations,
warranties and covenants made by the Shareholders under Sections 5.12, 11.7 or
12.14 of this Agreement that specifically relate to Taxes shall survive until
thirty days after the expiration of the applicable statutes of limitations
(including any waivers or extensions) on assessment and collection of the Tax
to which such representation, warranty or covenant relates, (2) claims relating
to fraud shall survive until the expiration of the applicable statute of
limitations, (3) ******************************* (4) claims relating to those
items identified in Sections 11.1(f) and 11.1(g) shall not be subject to the
$350,000 deductible described in this Section 11.5. If any claims for
indemnification have been made pursuant to Section 11.1 and the same are still
pending or unresolved at the expiration of the survival period, such claims
shall continue to be subject to the indemnification provisions of this
Agreement. This Section 11.5 shall not limit any covenant or agreement by the
parties hereto which by its terms contemplates performance after the Effective
Time, which in each case shall survive the Effective Time. Notwithstanding
anything herein to the contrary (except clause (4) of this Section 11.5), the
Shareholders shall not be obligated to indemnify Jabil and/or the Surviving
Corporation under this Article 11 unless and until the aggregate of Losses for
which indemnity is provided under this Article 11 reaches $350,000, in which
event the Shareholders shall be obligated to indemnify Jabil and/or the
Surviving Corporation for all such Losses in excess of such amount, and Jabil's
sole remedy for indemnification claims shall be to seek recourse against the
escrow provided for in Section 3.2(b), except for claims specified in (1), (2)
or (3) of this Section 11.5 and for claims of breach of the representations and
warranties of Sections 5.1, 5.2 and 5.16. Losses shall be computed after all
insurance recoveries and after taking into account any tax benefits not offset
by the receipt of the related indemnification payments. Each party hereby
acknowledges and agrees that, from and after the Effective Time, its sole and
exclusive remedy with respect to any and all claims relating to the subject
matter of this Agreement shall be pursuant to the indemnification provisions
set forth in this Article 11, except for claims of fraud. In furtherance of the
foregoing, each party hereby waives, from and after the Effective Time, to the
fullest extent permitted under applicable law, any and all claims, rights and
causes of action (other than claims of fraud and claims arising under this
Article 11) it may have relating to the subject matter of this Agreement
arising under or based upon any federal, state, local or foreign statute, law,
ordinance, rule or regulation or otherwise. In determining the amount of any
Loss, all references in this Agreement or in any certificates delivered in
connection with this Agreement to the terms "material", "materiality" or
variants thereof shall be disregarded for the purposes of such determination,
except for such terms contained in Section 5.22.

       11.6 Representative. Mr. Fang shall, by virtue of the Merger and the
resolutions to be adopted by the Shareholders, be irrevocably appointed
attorney-in-fact and authorized and empowered to act, for and on behalf of any
or all of the Shareholders (with full power of substitution in the premises) in
connection with the indemnity provisions of Article 11 as they relate to the
Shareholders generally, the Escrow Agreement, the notice provision of this
Agreement, and such other matters as are reasonably necessary for the
consummation of the Transactions including, without limitation, to act as the
representative of such Shareholders to review and authorize all set-offs,
claims and other payments authorized or directed by the

<PAGE>   43

Escrow Agreement and dispute or question the accuracy thereof, to compromise on
their behalf with Jabil any claims asserted thereunder and to authorize
payments to be made with respect thereto and to take such further actions as
are authorized in this Agreement (the above named representative, as well as
any subsequent representative of such Shareholders appointed by him or, after
his death or incapacity, elected by vote of holders of a majority of the Jabil
Shares received by such Shareholders pursuant to the Merger, being referred to
herein as the "Representative"). The Representative shall not be liable, in his
capacity as representative of such Shareholders, to any of the Shareholders and
their respective affiliates or any other person with respect to any action
taken or omitted to be taken by the Representative under or in connection with
this Agreement or the Escrow Agreement in his capacity as representative of
such Shareholders unless such action or omission results from or arises out of
fraud, gross negligence, willful misconduct or bad faith on the part of the
Representative. Jabil and the Surviving Corporation and each of their
respective affiliates shall be entitled to rely on such appointment and treat
such Representative as the duly appointed attorney-in-fact of each Shareholder.
Each Shareholder who votes in favor of the Merger pursuant to the terms hereof,
by such vote, without any further action, and each Shareholder who receives any
Jabil Shares in connection with the Merger, by acceptance thereof and without
any further action, confirms such appointment and authority and acknowledges
and agrees that such appointment is irrevocable and coupled with an interest,
it being understood that the willingness of Jabil to enter into this Agreement
is based, in part, on the appointment of a representative to act on behalf of
the Shareholders.

       11.7 Tax Indemnification Procedure. Notwithstanding anything else in
this Agreement to the contrary:

            (a) Jabil will, as to any Taxes in respect of which the
Shareholders have agreed to indemnify Jabil, its affiliates and/or GET,
promptly inform the Representative of, and permit the participation of the
Representative in, any investigation, audit and other proceeding by or with a
Tax Authority empowered to administer or enforce such Tax and will not consent
to the settlement or Final Determination in such proceeding without the prior
written consent of the Representative, which shall not be unreasonably
withheld, conditioned or delayed.

            (b) (i) Jabil, on the one hand, and the Representative, on the
other hand, will (A) use reasonable efforts to keep the other advised as to the
status of Tax audits and litigation involving any Taxes that could give rise to
a liability of the Shareholders to Jabil, its affiliates and/or GET under this
Agreement (a "Tax Liability Issue"), (B) promptly furnish to the others copies
of any inquiries or requests for information from any Tax Authority concerning
any Tax Liability Issue, (C) timely notify the others regarding any proposed
written communication (i.e., communications not relating to inquiries or
requests for information) to any such Tax Authority with respect to such Tax
Liability Issue, (D) promptly furnish to the other upon receipt copies of any
information or document requests, notices of proposed adjustment, revenue
agent's reports or similar reports or notices of deficiencies together with all
relevant documents, Tax Returns and memos related to the foregoing documents,
notices or reports, relating to any Tax Liability Issue, (E) give the other and
its or their accountants and counsel the reasonable

                                      38


<PAGE>   44

opportunity to review and comment in advance on all written submissions,
filings and any other information relevant to any Tax Liability Issue, and (F)
consider in good faith any suggestions made by the other and its or their
accountants and counsel to submit documentation or attend those portions of any
meetings and proceedings that relate to such proposed adjustment; provided,
however, that the failure of one party to so notify the other party of any such
audit or Tax controversy shall not affect the other party's obligations under
this Agreement, except to the extent that the indemnifying party can
demonstrate that it has been materially prejudiced or materially and adversely
affected thereby. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Jabil, on the one hand, and
the Representative, on the other hand, may make appropriate redactions in the
submissions, filings and any other information provided to the other to
preserve the confidentiality of such information as to issues that are not Tax
Liability Issues.

                (ii) Subject to the cooperation provisions of subsection (b)(i)
above, Jabil will have full responsibility for and discretion in handling any
Tax controversy, including, without limitation, an audit, a protest to the
Appeals Division of the IRS, and litigation in Tax Court or any other court of
competent jurisdiction involving the Companies (a "Proceeding"), unless the
Representative elects to assume the defense of such Proceeding by giving Jabil
notice of such election within five (5) business days after the
Representative's receipt of notice of such claim as set forth in Section
11.7(c). If the Representative assumes the defense of such Proceeding, the
Representative shall do so at its sole cost and expense, through legal counsel
reasonably acceptable to Jabil (and Jabil hereby confirms that Wilson, Sonsini
is reasonably acceptable for such purpose), and Jabil shall nonetheless have
the right to participate in (but not control) the defense or settlement of such
Proceeding, at its sole cost and expense, through its own legal counsel. In the
event that the Representative assumes the defense or prosecution of a
Proceeding, it shall not settle or compromise such claim or consent to the
entry of any judgment without the prior written consent of Jabil, which consent
shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. If, in Jabil's
reasonable judgment, the Representative fails to diligently defend or prosecute
such Proceeding, Jabil may assume sole control of the defense or prosecution of
such Proceeding. Any of the foregoing to the contrary notwithstanding, the
Representative shall not have the right, and Jabil shall not be required, to
contest any Tax Liability Issue unless the Representative provides to Jabil, at
Jabil's written request, an opinion in form and content reasonably acceptable
to Jabil from counsel reasonably acceptable to Jabil that there is substantial
authority for the position that has or will be claimed with respect to such
action, and Jabil need not take such action until such opinion is delivered to
Jabil.

            (c) Whenever any claim is made for indemnification of any Tax under
this Agreement, the Claimant shall notify the Indemnifying Party promptly after
the Claimant has actual knowledge of any event which might give rise to a claim
for indemnification under this Agreement. The failure by the Claimant to give
notice of a claim as required in this Section 11.7(c) or a delay in giving such
notice shall not affect the validity or amount of such claim and the
indemnification obligations of the Indemnifying Party shall remain in effect as
to such claim, except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party can demonstrate
that it has been materially prejudiced or materially and adversely affected
thereby.

                                      39


<PAGE>   45

            (d) Within 60 days of any Final Determination of Tax in a
Proceeding, the Claimant shall provide a notice to the Indemnifying Party
explaining the calculation of the amount of such Tax for which indemnification
is claimed. The Indemnifying Party shall pay such amount of Tax to the Claimant
within five (5) business days after receipt of such notice, unless the
Indemnifying Party disagrees with such calculation and invokes the verification
procedure set forth in Section 11.7(e) below, in which case the Indemnifying
Party shall pay to Claimant, within five (5) business days of verification of
the amount of such Tax owed to Claimant, the amount so verified by the
Independent Public Accountants pursuant to Section 11.7(e) below.

            (e) If the Indemnifying Party shall disagree with the Claimant's
calculation of the Tax owed to Claimant and within ten (10) days after receipt
of such calculation requests in writing verification of such amount, such
amount shall be verified by a firm of Independent Public Accountants. Within 15
days after the Indemnifying Party's request, the Independent Public Accountants
shall either (i) confirm the accuracy of the Claimant's computation or (ii)
notify the Claimant that such computation is inaccurate. In the case of (ii)
above, the Independent Public Accountants shall recompute the amount of Tax
owed to Claimant in such manner as the Independent Public Accountants determine
and verify to be accurate. The costs of such verification shall be borne by the
Indemnifying Party unless such verification shall result in an adjustment in
the Indemnifying Party's favor of the Tax owed to Claimant as computed by the
Claimant, in which case such costs shall be borne by the Claimant. The Claimant
agrees to cooperate with such Independent Public Accountants and, subject to a
confidentiality agreement reasonably satisfactory to the Claimant, to supply
them with all information reasonably necessary to permit them to accomplish
such review and determination. Such information shall be for the confidential
use of the Independent Public Accountants and shall not be disclosed to the
Indemnifying Party or to any other person. The Indemnifying Party and Claimant
agree that the sole responsibility of the Independent Public Accountants shall
be to determine and verify the amount of the amount of Tax owed to Claimant
pursuant to this Section 11.7(e) and the matters of interpretation of this
Agreement are not within the scope of the Independent Public Accountant's
responsibility.

            (f) Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement,
each party shall bear its own Fees and Costs incurred in connection with a Tax
Liability Issue for which such party and its affiliates are liable under this
Agreement.

       11.8 Consideration. Any indemnification payments made by the
Shareholders or Jabil pursuant to this Article shall be deemed adjustments to
the consideration for the Merger.

12.    Miscellaneous. 

       12.1 Notices. Any notice required or permitted to be given under this
Agreement must be in writing and sent by recognized overnight courier (such as,
by way of example and not limitation, Airborne or Federal Express) or by
certified or registered mail, first class postage prepaid, or delivered by
hand, addressed as follows:

amended except by a writing signed by all of the parties by persons authorized
to execute such writing. Any agreement of a party to any extension or waiver
will be valid only if set forth in a writing signed on behalf of such party by
a person authorized to execute such writing, but any waiver or failure to
insist on strict compliance with any obligation, covenant, agreement or
condition will not operate as a waiver of or estoppel with respect to, any
subsequent or other failure.

Related Agreement and if counsel is employed to enforce this Agreement or a
Related Agreement, the successful party will be entitled to Fees and Costs

ambiguous language in this Agreement or any Related Agreement will not
necessarily be construed against any particular party as the drafter of such
language. The headings contained in this Agreement are solely for the purposes
of reference, are not part of the agreement of the parties and will not in any
way affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.

            (b) Any statement under this Agreement made "to the knowledge" of a
party will be deemed to have been made to the actual knowledge of such party
after such party has made reasonable investigation and inquiry of the

                                  AMENDMENT TO

                          AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF MERGER

         THIS AMENDMENT (this "Amendment") to the Agreement and Plan of Merger
dated August 11, 1999, among Jabil Circuit, Inc., JG Acquisition, Inc., GET
Manufacturing, Inc. and Mr. Shin Fang (the "Merger Agreement"), is executed

                                    --------

         A. The undersigned desire to amend the Merger Agreement pursuant to
Section 12.5 thereof as set forth below.

         B. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have
the meanings given to them in the Merger Agreement. Except as otherwise
explicitly stated to the contrary, references in this Amendment to "Sections"
are to the corresponding Sections of the Merger Agreement.

         NOW, THEREFORE, the parties, intending to be legally bound, hereby
agree as follows:

         1.  Adjustment of Purchase Price. Section 3.1(b) is amended by deleting
the figure "$245,700,000" and inserting in its place the figure "$242,950,000".

         2.  Registration on Form S-8. Section 3.1 is amended by adding to the
end thereof the following:

             "Jabil shall file a registration statement on Form S-8 covering
             the Jabil Shares issuable with respect to the options to purchase
             GET Shares assumed by Jabil pursuant to this Section 3.1 as soon
             as practicable after the Closing Date and maintain such
             registration statement effective for so long as such options
             remain outstanding and shall at all times reserve sufficient Jabil
             Shares for issuance upon exercise of such options. Jabil will use
             commercially reasonable efforts to assist holders of such options
             in participating in any informal simultaneous exercise and sale
             facility that may be available to Jabil optionees generally."

or a wholly owned subsidiary of GET, except that General Electronics
Telecommunication (Panyu) Limited (`GE Panyu') is a cooperative joint venture
in which the rights and obligations of General Electronics (China) Limited
(`GEL') over/towards GE Panyu are defined by the Panyu Contracts (as
hereinafter defined)); and the registered capital of GE Panyu is HKD47,100,000,
which has been fully paid up and has been contributed as to 85% by GEL and 15%
by the Panyu Yixing Industrial Company (the `JV Partner')."

         4.  Amendment of Section 5.6. Section 5.6 is amended by inserting
immediately after Section 5.6(d) the following:

             "(e)  With respect to the co-operative joint venture contract
                   between GEL, the JV Partner and GE Panyu dated 1st July 1997
                   and the articles of association of GE Panyu dated 1st July

                        without the passage of time or giving of notice (or
                        both), would constitute such a default on the part of
                        any of the Companies or, to the knowledge of GET or Mr.
                        Fang, on the part of any of such third parties;

                        of the parties to the Panyu Contracts thereunder nor
                        the validity or enforceability of the Panyu Contracts
                        and will not result in the imposition of any material
                        restriction, limitation, cost or penalty to Jabil;

                   (3)  save that the parties to the Panyu Contracts have acted
                        in accordance with the terms of the Panyu Contracts
                        prior to the Panyu Contracts having been approved by

                        repudiated any provision of the Panyu Contracts; and

                   (5)  GET has delivered to Jabil a true and complete copy of
                        each Panyu Contract (including all amendments and
                        attachments thereto).

         Shareholders and their respective affiliates or any other person with
         respect to any action taken or omitted to be taken by the Escrow
         Assistant under or in connection with this Agreement or the Escrow

         omission results from or arises out of fraud, gross negligence,
         willful misconduct or bad faith on the part of the Escrow Assistant.
         Each Shareholder who votes in favor of the Merger pursuant to the
         terms hereof, by

                    JABIL CIRCUIT SIGNS LETTER OF INTENT TO
                           ACQUIRE GET MANUFACTURING

St. Petersburg, FL - August 5, 1999-- Jabil Circuit, Inc. (NYSE: JBL) today
announced it has signed a non-binding letter of intent to acquire GET
Manufacturing Inc, a privately held, China-based electronics manufacturing
services provider. Headquartered in Hong Kong, GET has principle manufacturing
operations in China, with additional sites in Mexico and California.

The purchase price of $250 million will be paid in Jabil common stock and is
expected to be accounted for under U.S. GAAP as a pooling-of-interests. The
transaction
 is expected to close by August 31, 1999 and is not expected to be
materially accretive to earnings in the first year.

"The acquisition of GET provides Jabil an immediate and very solid foundation
in China, satisfying an important strategic objective of our Company.
Additionally, GET has 30 years of profitable operations in China, a solid
customer base without overlap to Jabil's, a complete product assembly
competence including a substantial injection molding infrastructure, and a
management team focused on quality execution," said Tim Main, President, Jabil
Circuit, Inc.

China is forecasted to be the largest national market for important target
industry sectors, including telecommunications, over the next four years. "We
believe that possessing an outstanding capability in China will be key to fully
exploiting these opportunities in the years to come. Acquiring GET gives us the
outstanding capability we need, immediately, in a low risk way," said Main. "We
look forward to swift completion of the acquisition and to welcoming GET
employees to the Jabil family."

Founded in Hong Kong, GET Manufacturing pioneered electronics manufacturing in
Hong Kong and southern China. The company currently has one million square feet
of manufacturing operations located in Shenzhen, Dan Shui and Panyu, China;
Hong Kong; with smaller operations in Tijuana, Mexico and Mountain View,
California. All six manufacturing operations are ISO 9002-certified. The
company employs approximately 5000 employees.

"We believe the combination of GET and Jabil will provide a substantially
enhanced solution for our current and future customers. The complementary
aspects of global expansion, customer base and the future growth of the overall
industry make this a powerfully synergistic combination. We are enthused that
the combined operations will create a dynamic, global manufacturing force,"
said Roger Nordby, President and CEO, GET Manufacturing, Inc.
