wood_tree__170sqPrivate equity firm Oaktree Capital Group has reportedly put wood preservation chemicals manufacturer Osmose up for sale.

Osmose, which received a $189m investment from Oaktree in 2012, could be valued at $900m in a deal, said Reuters, citing people familiar with the matter.

The company could be sold for eight or nine times its EBITDA of $100m, according to the report.

Last November oaktree agreed to sell packaging and tubing manufacturer Tekni-Plex to fellow private equity firm American Securities in a deal that was reportedly worth as much as $800m.

At that time, Oaktree closed its latest real estate fund on $2.3bn, beating its initial $1.5bn target.
