According to several reports, several of EnerVest's energy funds that used leverage to purchase oil and gas wells when crude prices were high have reported that investors in those funds will suffer signficant losses on their investments. According to reports, there have been discussions to recapitalize or otherwise sell assets from the $1.5 billion EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XII, which closed in 2010, and the $2 billion EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIII, which closed in 2013.

EnerVest is a private-equity firm that focuses on energy investments, claiming to operate more U.S. oil and gas wells than any other company.  EnerVest began raising and investing large sums of money in 2013 when oil was being traded at an average of $90 a barrel, and experienced huge losses when oil prices crashed.

Traditionally, EnerVest’s funds would have seen a return of about 30%, raising more cash for new projects- but several energy companies were negatively impacted by the drop of crude oil prices, and EnerVest was amongst them. The size of this loss is highly unusual as only seven private-equity funds, like EnerVest, worth more than $1 billion have lost money for investors, and even then, losses of 25 percent or more are unheard of. This has been cited from an analysis done by investment firm Cambridge Associates and public pension records.

If you are an investor that has suffered losses investing with EnerVest, you may be able to pursue a recover to your losses through FINRA arbitration or securities litigation. Please call Kons Law Firm at (860) 920-5181 for a FREE, NO OBLIGATION consultation to discuss your investment loss recovery options.

Contingency Fee Lawyers

For most cases, Kons Law Firm offers a contingency fee representation. This means that the attorneys' fee that you pay is a percentage of the recovery before expenses. If there is no recovery, then you are not responsible for paying any attorneys' fees. Depending on the case, you may still be responsible for the expenses. Contingency fee representation helps align the interest of the lawyer and the client, and provides a financial incentive for the lawyer to try to get the best possible results for the client.
