RAW GRAINS AGREEMENT
THIS RAW GRAINS MARKETING AGREEMENT (this "Agreement"), made and entered
into this 12TH of November, 2004, by and among East Kansas Agri-Energy, LLC, a
Kansas limited liability company ("EKAE"), and United Bio Energy Ingredients,
LLC, a Kansas limited liability company ("UBEI").
W I T N E S S E T H :
WHEREAS, EKAE intends to construct and own an ethanol plant, located near
Garnett, Kansas (the "Plant");
WHEREAS, EKAE desires to buy and UBEI desires to sell all raw grains
required for any ethanol production at the Plant (the "Raw Grains");
WHEREAS, the parties desire to purchase and sell Raw Grains, and receive
and provide such services, in accordance with the fees, price formula, payment,
delivery and other terms set forth in this Agreement.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the mutual
covenants and conditions herein contained, and for other good and valuable
consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged by
both parties, it is hereby agreed:
1. COMMITMENT AND TERM. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, UBEI
hereby agrees to sell, and EKAE hereby agrees to purchase, all Raw Grains
required for ethanol production at the Plant. The initial term of this Agreement
shall be for five (5) years. The parties shall execute a memorandum setting
forth the actual date of commencement of the term, which shall be approximately
6 months before substantial completion of the Plant. Unless earlier terminated
in accordance with this Agreement, this Agreement shall be automatically renewed
for successive one (1) year terms thereafter unless either party gives written
notice to the other party of its election not to renew, not later than ninety
(90) days prior to the expiration of the then current term.
2. PRICE AND PAYMENT.
A. PRICE. For all Raw Grains delivered to the Plant by UBEI, EKAE
shall pay UBEI a price equal to the F.O.B. Plant Price plus Two Cents ($.02) per
bushel. For purposes of this provision, the "F.O.B. Plant Price" shall mean the
actual cash procurement price of Raw Grains, plus all reasonable and necessary
expenses incurred by UBEI in delivering the Raw Grains to the Plant, whether
incurred prior to or during the term of this Agreement, less any quality
discounts using the Price Discount Schedule contained in EXHIBIT A.
B. PAYMENT. On a daily basis, weekends and holidays excluded, EKAE
shall provide UBEI with certified weight certificates for the previous day's
receipts of Raw
Grains. Transmittal of said weight certificates may be electronically
transmitted in a medium acceptable to the parties. The certificates shall
determine the quantity and quality of Raw Grains received at the Plant for each
delivery. UBEI shall invoice EKAE, via the agreed to electronic medium, the
F.O.B. Plant Price defined in paragraph 2.A above for all properly documented
deliveries. Invoices shall be due two (2) business days after receipt of said
invoice by EKAE, and EKAE shall make payment of funds to UBEI via wire transfer
into an account designated by UBEI. Unless EKAE has provided prior written
notice to UBEI of a dispute with respect to said invoice, failure to pay in
accordance with such terms shall entitle UBEI to impose a late payment fee of
Two Tenths of One Cent ($.002) per bushel per calendar day until such invoice is
paid in full. EKAE shall have the right to inspect copy and/or audit UBEI's
expense records and Raw Grains invoices and contracts during normal business
hours at the corporate offices of UBEI. If any such inspection or audit shall
reveal an overpayment made to UBEI, UBEI shall immediately pay EKAE the amount
of the overpayment together with interest from the date that such overpayment
was made at the prime rate in effect on the date of the overpayment as reported
in the Wall Street Journal. The expense of any such inspection or audit shall be
borne by EKAE unless a material overpayment is revealed, then, in such case, the
reasonable expense of such inspection or audit shall be borne by UBEI.
C. BEST EFFORTS. UBEI agrees to use best efforts to achieve the
lowest price for Raw Grains available under prevailing market conditions.
4. ON-SITE MERCHANDISER NOT INCLUDED. The provisions of this Agreement do
not include a grain merchandiser on-site at the Plant during the term of this
5. DELIVERY AND TITLE.
A. PLACE. The place of delivery for all Raw Grains sold by UBEI
pursuant to this Agreement shall be F.O.B. Plant. UBEI and its agents shall be
given access to the Plant in a manner and at all times reasonably necessary and
convenient for UBEI to make delivery as provided herein. EKAE shall direct the
unloading and receiving of all Raw Grains purchased hereunder. All labor and
equipment necessary to load or unload trucks or rail cars shall be supplied by
EKAE without charge to UBEI. EKAE agrees to handle the unloading and receiving
of the Raw Grains in a good and workmanlike manner in accordance with UBEI's
reasonable requirements and in accordance with normal industry practice. EKAE
shall maintain the truck/rail unloading facilities in safe operating condition
in accordance with normal industry standards.
B. UNLOADING SCHEDULE. On Friday of each week during the term of
this Agreement, UBEI shall give EKAE a schedule of quantities of Raw Grains to
be delivered by rail by UBEI during the next receiving week (Monday through
Sunday). In the event UBEI delivers some or all of the Raw Grains by truck, UBEI
shall give EKAE sufficient advance notice to allow EKAE to provide the required
unloading services. EKAE shall provide the labor, equipment and facilities
necessary to meet UBEI's unloading schedule and shall be responsible for UBEI's
additional costs resulting from EKAE's failure to do so; provided, however, if
UBEI has not given notice as provided herein, EKAE is obligated only to use its
best efforts to
accommodate UBEI's unloading schedule and EKAE shall not be responsible for any
additional costs incurred by UBEI resulting from EKAE's failure to do so. All
freight charges shall be the responsibility of UBEI and shall be billed directly
to UBEI, and said charges shall be included in the price charged to EKAE. UBEI
shall order and supply trucks as scheduled for truck shipments.
C. PRODUCTION SCHEDULE. UBEI shall provide Raw Grains in quantities
necessary to permit EKAE to maintain its usual production schedule; provided,
however, that UBEI shall not be responsible for failure to schedule receipts of
Raw Grains unless EKAE shall have provided to UBEI, at least five (5) days prior
to the beginning of the next month, notice of the estimated schedule for
production for such month. On Wednesday of each week, EKAE shall provide UBEI
notice of the schedule for actual production for the following production week
(Monday through Sunday). EKAE shall inform UBEI daily of inventory and
production status by 8:30 a.m. CDT.
For purposes of this paragraph, notification of such production schedules
will be sufficient if made by facsimile or electronically as follows:
UBEI, to the attention of Ron Hansen, Facsimile number 316-796-0944,
Email address: email@example.com; and
EKAE, to the attention of General Manager, Facsimile number ,
_______________________, Email address: _________________.
Or to such other representatives of UBEI and EKAE as they may designate to
the other in writing.
D. TITLE. Title, risk of loss and responsibility for the quality of
Raw Grains shall pass to EKAE upon unloading the Raw Grains at the Plant. Prior
to unloading, EKAE shall have the right to inspect and reject any Raw Grain
delivery that does not meet the quality standards set forth in this Agreement.
6. QUANTITY AND WEIGHTS.
A. NO REPRESENTATION. It is understood that the Raw Grains required
for the production of the ethanol shall be determined by EKAE's production
schedule and that no warranty or representation has been made by EKAE as to the
exact quantities of Raw Grains required.
B. ESTIMATE. The estimated amount of Raw Grains required for the
production of ethanol at the Plant is thirteen million (13,000,000) bushels per
C. SCALES. The weight of Raw Grains delivered by UBEI to the Plant
shall be established by weight certificates. EKAE shall obtain truck and rail
weights on the scales at the Plant, which shall be maintained by EKAE as
required by applicable laws, rules and regulations. Whenever EKAE's scales are
unavailable or inoperable, any certified scales may be
used, at EKAE's sole cost and expense, until EKAE's scales are available and
operable. These inbound weight certificates shall be determinative of the
quantity of Raw Grains for which EKAE is obligated to pay pursuant to paragraph
2 above, except that Raw Grains procured by UBEI on the basis of origin weights
shall be invoiced at the actual origin weight, with an allowance for shrinkage
not greater than three percent (3%), as measured against the destination weight.
D. RAIL CARS. Except as otherwise consented to by EKAE, all rail
cars for Raw Grains shall be grain hopper cars.
A. STANDARDS. UBEI understands that EKAE intends to utilize the Raw
Grains purchased from UBEI as primary base stock for ethanol production and that
said Raw Grains are subject to minimum quality standards for such use. UBEI
warrants that Raw Grains delivered to the Plant shall meet the Corn
Specification contained in the Quality Standards in EXHIBIT A attached hereto or
the Sorghum Specification contained in the Quality Standards in EXHIBIT B
attached hereto and shall be acceptable under current industry standards in the
ethanol production industry. The Quality Standards in EXHIBIT A and EXHIBIT B
are subject to change as may be mutually agreed in writing by and between the
parties, provided, however, that such changes shall be in conformance with
generally acceptable industry standards.
B. COMPLIANCE. UBEI warrants that at the time of delivery the Raw
Grains will not be adulterated or misbranded within the meaning of the Federal
Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and that the Raw Grains may lawfully be introduced
into interstate commerce under said Act. Unless otherwise agreed between the
parties to this Agreement, and in addition to other remedies permitted by law,
EKAE may, without obligation to pay, reject any Raw Grains before unloading for
the failure of the Raw Grains to comply with the representations and warranties
in this paragraph. Actual unloading of Raw Grains at the Plant shall waive
EKAE's rights to reject Raw Grains on the grounds of noncompliance with the
representations and warranties in this Agreement. Should any of the Raw Grains
be seized or condemned by any federal or state department or agency for any
reason, except noncompliance by EKAE with applicable federal or state
requirements, such seizure or condemnation shall operate as a rejection by EKAE
of the Raw Grains seized or condemned and EKAE shall not be obligated to offer
any defense in connection with the seizure or condemnation. If UBEI fails to
deliver Raw Grains as required by this Agreement, or EKAE rejects in good faith
any tender of delivery of Raw Grains, EKAE may in good faith and without
unreasonable delay, make any reasonable purchase of Raw Grains in substitution
of the amount due from UBEI and credit any costs incurred in obtaining the
substitute Raw Grains against any amounts owed by EKAE to UBEI.
C. PRODUCT TESTING. If UBEI knows, should know or reasonably
suspects that any Raw Grains delivered by UBEI to the Plant do not meet the
standards set forth in this Agreement, UBEI shall promptly so notify EKAE so
that such Raw Grains can be tested before being unloaded at the Plant. If EKAE
knows or reasonably suspects that any Raw Grains delivered by UBEI to the Plant
do not meet the standards set forth in this Agreement, then EKAE may obtain
independent laboratory tests of the affected Raw Grains. If such Raw Grains are
tested and found to comply with all warranties made by UBEI herein, then EKAE
shall pay all reasonable testing costs and if the Raw Grains are found not to
comply with such warranties, UBEI shall pay all reasonable testing costs and
EKAE shall be allowed to reject such delivery regardless of whether the affected
Raw Grains have been unloaded.
D. NON-SPECIFICATION PRODUCTS. If UBEI delivers Raw Grains which do
not meet the Corn Specification contained in EXHIBIT A or the Sorghum
Specification contained in EXHIBIT B, then EKAE agrees to purchase such Raw
Grains in accordance with the Price Discount Schedule contained in EXHIBIT A or
EXHIBIT B, unless such Raw Grains may be rejected in accordance with EXHIBIT A
or EXHIBIT B and this Agreement.
A. POLICIES. EKAE warrants to UBEI that all EKAE's employees engaged
in the acquisition of Raw Grains for the Plant shall be covered as required by
law by worker's compensation and unemployment compensation insurance. UBEI
warrants to EKAE that all UBEI's employees or agents of UBEI present at the
Plant shall be covered as required by law by worker's compensation and
unemployment compensation insurance.
B. COVERAGES. During the term of this Agreement, EKAE shall purchase
and maintain insurance in such amounts as it may reasonably determine. UBEI
shall be named as an additional insured on all such policies. All such policies
shall contain provisions to the effect that in the event of payment of any loss
or damage the insurers will have no rights of recovery against any of the
insureds or additional insureds thereunder. EKAE waives all rights against UBEI
and its employees and agents for all losses and damages caused by, arising out
of or resulting from any of the perils or causes of loss covered by such
policies and any other property insurance applicable to the Plant. Also during
the term of this Agreement, UBEI shall purchase and maintain commercial general
liability insurance, with combined single limits of not less than $2,000,000
which shall be endorsed to require at least thirty (30) days notice to EKAE
prior to the effective date of any termination or cancellation of coverage. EKAE
shall be named as an additional insured on all such policies and UBEI shall
provide a certificate of insurance to EKAE to establish the coverage maintained
by the commencement date of this Agreement.
C. UBEI VEHICLES. UBEI agrees to carry such insurance on its
vehicles and personnel operating on EKAE's property as UBEI reasonably deems
appropriate or as required by law. The parties acknowledge that UBEI may elect
to self insure its vehicles. Upon request, UBEI shall provide a certificate of
insurance to EKAE to establish the coverage maintained by UBEI.
D. CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. EACH PARTY TO THIS AGREEMENT UNDERSTANDS
THAT NO OTHER PARTY MAKES ANY GUARANTEE, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, TO ANY OTHER OF
PROFIT, OR OF ANY PARTICULAR ECONOMIC RESULTS FROM TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY
THIS AGREEMENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL ANY PARTY BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, COLLATERAL,
INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FOR ANY ACT OR OMISSION COMING WITHIN THE
SCOPE OF THIS AGREEMENT, OR FOR BREACH OF
ANY OF THE PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF IT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, SUCH EXCLUDED DAMAGES INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED
TO, LOSS OF GOOD WILL, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF USE, AND INTERRUPTION OF
E. OTHER CLAIMS. Except as provided in paragraph 8.D above, nothing
herein shall be construed as a waiver by either party against the other party of
claims, causes of action or other rights which either party may have or
hereafter acquire against the other party for damage or injury to its agents,
employees, invitees, property, equipment or inventory, or third party claims
against the other party for damage or injury to other persons or the property of

cause by providing ninety (90) days prior written notice to the other party. If

the product of three (3) multiplied by the average monthly fee paid to UBEI,
under paragraph 2.A above, for the six (6) months prior to the termination date,
