A put option was also signed by both parties. As stated in Wikipedia, one party, the buyer of the put, has the right, but not an obligation, to sell the asset at the strike price by the future date. Meanwhile, the other party, the seller, has the obligation to buy the asset at the strike price if the buyer exercises the option. 2 different times were struck in the contract, be it either 6 months from now or within 2 weeks at an agreed date.
