If the Products or any portion thereof are not delivered within the time or times specified in the PO (or any extension of such time or times granted by the Buyer), the Buyer shall be entitled to determine the PO in respect of the Products undelivered and of any other Products already delivered under the PO which cannot be effectively and commercially used by reason of the non-delivery of the Products undelivered. On such determination, the Buyer shall be entitled to:
      1. to return to the Seller at the Seller’s expense any of the Products already delivered but which cannot be effectively and commercially used as aforesaid and to recover from the Seller any monies paid by the Buyer in respect of such Products; and

      3. Seller ceases or threatens to cease to carry on its business; or
