Unit Matching Service

This portion of the website is made available by Lincolnway Energy, LLC (“Lincolnway Energy”) to allow the posting of nonbinding offers or indications of interest for the sale or purchase of units of Lincolnway Energy in order to provide a means for the initiation of contact between, and the matching of, members who have an interest in selling any of their units and persons who have interest in buying units.

The availability of this matching service and your use of this matching service is subject to all of the following:

  1. Lincolnway Energy may amend or modify this matching service, and suspend or discontinue this matching service for any period of time, at any time and for any reason, and without any notice. For example, Lincolnway Energy may amend this matching service to require the payment of a fee to Lincolnway Energy for the use of this matching service. As another example, Lincolnway Energy may suspend this matching service for the remainder of any tax year of Lincolnway Energy if 10% of the issued and outstanding units have been transferred during that taxable year.

  2. Lincolnway Energy reserves the right, for any reasonable cause, to (i) prohibit any person from posting any sell or buy offers or from selling or purchasing any units from the use of any information from this matching service, or (ii) remove, without notice, all of the posted sale information or the posted buy information of any person. “Reasonable cause” includes the person (i) breaching any agreement the person enters into to sell or buy any units or the person engaging in any misrepresentations or other misleading acts or omissions in connection with any sale or purchase of any units; (ii) breaching the Amended and Restated Operating Agreement or the Unit Assignment Policy of Lincolnway Energy in connection with any sale or purchase of any units; or (iii) using this matching service in any manner that could be argued to make the units of Lincolnway Energy to be readily tradable on a secondary market or the substantial equivalent thereof.

  3. Lincolnway Energy will not provide any information or otherwise participate in any negotiations for the sale or purchase of any units, and all sales and purchases must be based on the seller’s and buyer’s own independent investigation, knowledge and belief. No information on Lincolnway Energy’s website is provided for purposes of providing information for any sales or purchases of any units, so you cannot rely on any information on Lincolnway Energy’s website as a basis for making any decision to sell or buy any units. Lincolnway Energy is a reporting company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and Lincolnway Energy’s filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 are available on the website of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

  4. All sales and purchases must comply with the Amended and Restated Operating Agreement and the Unit Transfer Assignment Policy of Lincolnway Energy.  For example, all sales and purchases of units are subject to the approval of the directors of Lincolnway Energy under Article 9 in the Amended and Restated Operating Agreement and under the Unit Assignment Policy. Given that director approval is necessary for all sales, you should not exchange any funds or otherwise finalize any sale or purchase of any units unless and until the approval of the directors has been obtained.
    As another example, the seller and buyer in any transaction will be required to provide Lincolnway Energy with an executed and properly completed unit assignment application, and the seller will also be required to provide Lincolnway Energy with the certificate or certificates for the units being sold, properly endorsed for transfer.
    You should review the Amended and Restated Operating Agreement and the Unit Assignment Policy before submitting a unit assignment application and any certificates for units to Lincolnway Energy. Click here to review the Amended and Restated Operating Agreement and the Unit Assignment Policy .

  19. Lincolnway Energy may conclusively assume, without any inquiry or investigation, that a transaction which was the subject of a unit assignment application that was approved by the directors of Lincolnway Energy has been closed by the seller and buyer upon Lincolnway Energy’s receipt of the certificate or certificates for the units sold. No certificates should be presented to Lincolnway Energy unless and until the approval of the directors has been obtained.

Other Notices:

  1. The units are a speculative, high risk investment. You should not purchase any units unless you can afford to lose all of your investment. The transfer of units is restricted, so the units are also not a liquid investment.

Lincolnway Energy is not responsible for the fairness of the purchase price, the payment terms or any other terms of any transaction. You must discuss any proposed sale or purchase of any units with your own legal, tax, investment and other advisors.

  3. Lincolnway Energy is not a broker, dealer, investment advisor or securities exchange.
