New Source Energy Partners (NYSE: NSLP) is an independent energy company with operations concentrated in east-central Oklahoma. According to a 2014 prospectus, the company intended to apply to have 11% Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Units listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “NSLP PRA”.

Convertible notes, like the 11% Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Units, are typically debt instruments created by investment sponsors that are linked to other assets, such as a stock, which is in turn linked to an asset or assets. Such investments are extremely complex and are only appropriate for sophisticated investors capable of understanding the investments’ complexity and risks.
According to reports, several investigations are currently looking in to whether New Source improperly failed to disclose on-going cash flow problems in its offering materials.
The White Law Group’s investigation, on the other hand, is specifically related to potential liability that brokerage firms may have for improperly recommending New Source investments.
Brokerage firms and brokers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor and are in line with the client’s risk tolerance, age, net worth, and investment experience.
If a broker makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment, both the broker and the brokerage firm may be liable for investment losses through FINRA arbitration.
