The Experts shall, no later than ten (10) Business Days after the last submission of the written reports and, if any, oral submissions, select one of the Parties’ positions as their final decision, and shall not have the authority to modify either Party’s position or render any substantive decision other than to so select the position of either Ono or Array as set forth in their respective written report (as initially submitted, or as revised in accordance with Section 17.2(c), as applicable). The Parties agree that the decision of the Experts shall be the sole, exclusive and binding remedy between them regarding any Expert Dispute presented to the Experts, provided that the Experts’ decision with respect to disputes referred to it pursuant to Section 3.5 shall become the decision of the JDRC on the matter for all purposes of this Agreement.
