or appropriate, any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement (each, a “Dispute”) shall be exclusively resolved by final and binding arbitration as follows:
(a) Arbitration under the ICC Rules of Arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted by three (3) arbitrators according to the ICC Rules of Arbitration (“Rules”), and the panel of three arbitrators so selected is referred to herein as the “Arbitration Tribunal.” The seat of the arbitration shall be in Osaka, Japan, if it is demanded by Array, and in New York, NY, USA, if it is demanded by Ono, with hearings to held in the same location. The Emergency Arbitrator Provisions shall not apply.

If so requested by the Arbitration Tribunal, any documents originally in a language other than English shall be submitted with an English translation. The Arbitration Tribunal shall have the authority to order document production taking guidance from the applicable rules under the laws of the seat of the arbitration. If the tribunal orders production of documents, the tribunal shall take guidance from the IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration as current on the dated the commencement of the arbitration.

However, this period is not a deadline and failure to render an award within them shall not be a ground for annulment of an award.
(d) Decision of the Arbitration Tribunal. Every award shall be binding on the Parties. By submitting the dispute to arbitration under the Rules, the Parties undertake to carry out any award without delay and shall be deemed to have waived their right to any form of recourse insofar as such waiver can validly be made. The Parties agree that they can seek recognition and enforcement of any order and/or award made by the Arbitration Tribunal before any competent court. The Arbitration Tribunal shall have no authority to award punitive damages or other damages exceeding the damages actually suffered by the prevailing Party, and may not, in any event, make any ruling, finding or award that does not conform to the provisions of this Agreement.
