Securities Investigation – Waveland Energy Partners LLC
Are you concerned about your investment in Waveland Energy Partners LLC? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
Waveland Energy Partners LLC is a subsidiary of Waveland Capital Partners and engages in providing financing for unconventional dewatering projects in the Mid-Continent region of the United States, according to Bloomberg.
The company reportedly finances mining of bypassed oil and gas reserves in and surrounding conventional producing fields. The company was founded in 2001 and is based in Irvine, California.
According to SEC filings, Waveland Energy Partners LLC filed a Form D to raise capital from investors in 2010. Investments such as these 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%. In this case, there is a 3% “placement agent fee”, according to the Form D.
The problem with private placement investments such as Waveland Energy Partners LLC is that they typically involve a high degree of risk. They are also often sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds.
