Please contact one of our securities attorneys in Chicago, Illinois if you were recommended or sold private placements in Coachman Energy or Bakken Drilling. Brokers have sold these private placements, which may not be suitable for all investors. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently settled an action where the agency alleged that Coachman Energy Partners LLC failed to adequately disclose its methodology for calculating the management fees and expeses it charged to the funds from 2011 through 2014. The SEC found that the investment adviser for four private placement oil and gas funds miscalculated by $1.1 million in management fees and $449,000 in management-related expenses. Further, there were undisclosed conflicts of interests as one of the funds entered into transaction with an affiliated entity without proper disclosure or obtaining investor consent. Bakken raised $206 million from 309 investors. Coachman is believed to be involved with the following private placement investments:
• Bakken Drilling Fund III LP
• Bakken Drilling Fund IV LP

• Coachman Energy VI LP
• Coachman Energy VIB LLC
