French term or phrase: les intérêts au taux légal courront de plein droit sur cette somme

L'Ajustement sera payé, à l'euro euro, par la Société Apporteuse à la Société Bénéficiaire, au plus tard dans les dix jours ouvrables à compter de la détermination de la Situation Comptable Définitive telle que précisée à l'article X. A défaut de paiement à l'expiration de ce délai, les intérêts au taux légal courront de plein droit sur cette somme,
