Item 3.02 Unregistered Sale of Equity Securities.
 
As previously disclosed, on April 13, 2010, the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles entered an Order Approving Stipulation for Settlement of Claim (the “Order”) in the matter entitled Socius CG II, Ltd. v. Pacific Ethanol, Inc.  The Order provided for the full and final settlement of Socius GC II, Ltd.’s (“Socius”) $4,000,000 claim (the “Claim”) against Pacific Ethanol, Inc. (the “Company”).  Socius purchased the Claim from Lyles United, LLC (“Lyles United”), a creditor of the Company, pursuant to the terms of a Purchase Agreement dated effective as of April 10, 2010 between Socius and Lyles United.  The Claim consists of the right to receive $4,000,000 of principal amount of and under a loan made by Lyles United to the Company pursuant to the terms of an Amended and Restated Promissory Note dated November 7, 2008 in the original principal amount of $30,000,000.
 
As previously disclosed, pursuant to the terms of the Order, on April 14, 2010, the Company issued and delivered to Socius 3,750,000 shares of its common stock (the “Settlement Shares”), subject to adjustment as set forth in the Order.
 
The Company would have been required to issue an additional 497,728 shares of its common stock to Socius, however, the Company was prohibited from issuing additional shares to the extent the aggregate number of shares of the Company’s common stock to be issued to Socius or its designee in connection with the settlement of the Claim, aggregated with any other shares of the Company’s common stock issued to Socius and/or its designees by the Company, at any time would exceed 19.99% of the total number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding immediately preceding the date of the Order (the “Share Limitation”) unless the Company obtained (1) stockholder approval of the issuance of more than such number of shares of its common stock pursuant to NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5635(d), or (2) a waiver from NASDAQ of the Company’s compliance with Rule 5635(d).  The additional 497,728 shares would have exceeded the Share Limitation.
 
On June 3, 2010, the Company obtained the requisite stockholder approval of the issuance of shares of its common stock in excess of the Share Limitation pursuant to NASDAQ Listing Rule 5635(d).
 
On June 9, 2010, the Company issued the additional 497,728 shares.  As a result, in full satisfaction of the Claim (excluding any legal fees and expenses incurred by Socius in connection with the settlement of the Claim, which fees and expenses will be paid by the Company in connection with the settlement of future claims) the Company issued to Socius a total of 4,247,728 shares of its common stock.
 
The offer and sale of the securities described in this Item 3.02 were effected in reliance on Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
