The end of Aubrey McClendon's tenure at Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) wasn't exactly what you would call ideal, but the famous wildcatter is hoping to put that behind him as he looks to raise capital for his new limited partnership, American Energy Capital Partners. Recently, the company filed an S-1 form with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which, for those of us who do not speak "SEC", means the company will make an initial public offering. Between the $2 billion the company hopes to raise in this offering, and the $1.7 billion the company has already raised through debt and venture capital, Mr. McClendon will have a much bigger war chest to start than the $50,000 he started Chesapeake with.
So what exactly does American Energy Capital Partners do? Is it something you should look into as an investor? Tune into the video below, where fool.com contributor Tyler Crowe breaks down this new company, and whether it should be on your radar or not.
