     WHEREAS, Third Point intends to solicit written consents from Nabi's
stockholders (the "Solicitation") to  remove a majority of the members of
Nabi's board of directors (the "Board") and  request that the Board fill the
resulting vacancies on the Board with nominees selected by Third Point; and

     WHEREAS, among other things, Nabi is willing to add to the Board certain
individuals selected by Third Point and to create a Strategic Action Committee
of the Board (the "SAC"), and Third Point is willing to terminate the
Solicitation;

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises, the mutual covenants and
agreements contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the
receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto
agree as follows:

business day after the date hereof, take all action necessary (including the
calling of a special meeting of the Board to approve such actions) to:

          (i) expand the size of the Board so as to create two new directorships
on the Board in accordance with Article Fifth of its Restated Certificate of
Incorporation and Article III of its By-Laws, and

directors for a term commencing from the close of the 2007 Annual Meeting and
shall include the Third Point Nominees on the Board's proposed slate of nominees
for election at the 2007 Annual Meeting. Prior to the 2007 Annual Meeting, Nabi
shall solicit proxies for the election of the Board's slate of nominees

     (c) Should any Third Point Nominee resign from the Board prior to the
annual meeting of stockholders of Nabi to be held in 2008, or decide not to seek
