Adageo Energy is an independent oil and gas company that focuses on identification, acquisition, drilling, development and operation of oil and gas properties as well as the construction and operation of natural gas pipelines, according to their website.
The company often raises money for investments through Reg D private placement offerings. Adageo Energy Partners LP is one such offering. Reg D private placements are typically sold by brokerage firms in exchange for a large up front commission. High fees can range from 7-10%, as well as additional “due diligence fees” that can range from 1-3%.
Upon information and belief, the sales commissions earned by broker dealers who sold Adageo Energy Partners to investors was a whopping 10%. According to SEC filings, the following firms offered Adageo investments to their clients:
Jesup & Lamont Securities Corp.
Sunset Financial Services Inc.
Charter Pacific Securities, LLC
ePLANNING Securities Inc.
Newbridge Securities Corporation
Arete Wealth Management LLC
WFP Securities Inc.

Another problem with private placement investments such as Adageo Energy Partners LP is that they involve a high degree of risk. They are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds. These investments may seem wise at first, until the dramatic drop in distributions.
