If the Seller provides such notice of objection, the Seller shall promptly submit any disputed matters identified in such notice of objection to the Accountant for resolution. The provisions of Section 2.04(b)(ii) regarding the timing of the Accountant’s decision, the scope of the review and the decision, the binding nature of the decision and the fees and expenses of the Accountant shall apply to any dispute under this Section 2.06(b) mutatis mutandis.
