Finnish private equity firm CapMan is preparing to capitalise on the current interest in the healthcare sector by selling medical devices company OneMed, according to Reuters.
The firm has called in Danske Bank and DC Advisory Partners to handle the sale, which could fetch up to €300m. Potential buyers are reportedly likely to include Nordic private equity firms IK Investment Partners, Nordic Capital and EQT.
Last week, Permira acquired Irish healthcare company Creganna-Tactx, and Mid Europa acquired Polish healthcare services provider Med-Sport.
OneMed is a manufacturer of bandages and wound dressings, as well as surgical textiles and gowns, with pro forma sales of €350m in 2009. CapMan acquired a 65.9 per cent stake in the company in 2006.
The firm recently closed its fifth mezzanine fund on €60m.
