If this is not economically justifiable, INOSIM has the right to withdraw from the Agreement. If INOSIM wishess to exercise this right of rescission, it shall, without delay after having realized the repercussions of the event, inform the license holder, even if at first with the license holder an extension of the delivery time was agreed upon.
