No. VII.3.2 - Lost profits/Further damages
(a) The party who suffers a loss from the failure of the other party to deliver is entitled to calculate his loss
based on the difference between the contract price and the price of a replacement transaction (e.g. substitute sale or substitute purchase) concluded within a reasonable time and in a reasonable manner or,
based on the difference between the price in the unexecuted contract and the market price current at the date of default and at the place where the contract should have been performed, or, if there is no current price at that place, the current price at such other place that appears reasonable to take as a reference.
(b) The aggrieved party may only recover lost net profits. This requires that the benefits of avoiding performance - the operating or other costs avoided by the absence of performance - must be deducted from the value to be received through performance.
(c) A claim for compensation of further harm is not excluded by a claim raised under (a) above, provided that such harm was foreseeable under Principle VII.2 and is established with a reasonable degree of certainty.
