apportionment of loss between the Venue Owner and Elixir shall be discussed and approved by the Machines Operation Committee on a case by case basis.

17.       If on or before ***, the Venue Owner fails to provide the Cancelled Credit Report for a particular day for whatever reason,  or if the parties fail, for whatever reason, agree on and sign off the calculation of the Daily Gross Win, then the parties shall use the amount of the Daily Gross Win of the immediate preceding day on which the parties have agreed and signed off as benchmark (the “Benchmark Amount”) and Elixir shall be entitled to collect the Benchmark Amount (or the relevant portion thereof in accordance with paragraph 15 above and Clause 3.2 of this Agreement) as a substitute for the Daily Gross Win for that day.
