LinnCo Issues Reminder Regarding Exchange Offer for LINN Energy Units


LinnCo, LLC LNCO, +0.53% ("LinnCo") today issued a reminder to unitholders of LINN Energy, LLC LINE, -6.89% ("LINN") about the previously announced offer to exchange each outstanding unit of LINN for one LinnCo share (the "Exchange Offer").

However, because the tax situation of each LINN unitholder is unique, LinnCo recommends that each LINN unitholder consult with such unitholder's own individual tax advisor to determine whether it is in such unitholder's best interest to participate in the Exchange Offer.
