Harwood Feffer LLP Announces Investigation Of Chesapeake Energy Corp.

NEW YORK, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP ( www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Chesapeake Energy Corp. ("Chesapeake" or the "Company") (NYSE: CHK), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

On April 18, 2012, Company stock had fallen nearly 10% by midday following revelations that the Company's CEO, Aubrey McClendon, has borrowed up to $1.1 billion in previously undisclosed loans secured against stakes in the company's wells.  McClendon reportedly borrowed the money to personally invest in wells drilled by the Company.  The loans were never disclosed to Company shareholders.   

Our investigation concerns whether the Chesapeake board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
