Possessing more than 20 years of experience in the energy industry, Charles Reed Cagle serves as President and CEO of HEI Resources. Reed Cagle reminds all potential investors to thoroughly investigate the products and services a business offers before investing and make every effort to verify the reported finances of the company. Businesses in poor standing or with obvious errors in their financial statements present a higher risk of fraud. Individuals must be wary of materials that they receive directly from the company without having requested them. Diligence in research proves the best method for reducing risk when investing in oil and gas companies.

The Secretary of State’s office where the company is incorporated can provide information about the company’s standing. Potential investors should also visit the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission online at http://www.sec.gov and contact state securities regulators about the company, especially before making an investment.
