Pope Resources Closes $84 Million Timber Fund
Poulsbo, Washington, USA 25 March 2009--(BUSINESS WIRE)-Pope Resources (NASDAQ:POPE) announced today that its subsidiary, Olympic Resource Management LLC (ORMLLC), which provides forestry consulting and timberland management services to third-party owners and managers of timberland, has successfully closed an $84 million private equity timber fund, ORM Timber Fund II, Inc. The $84 million of committed capital represents $67 million from third-party investors and $17 million to be co-invested by Pope Resources. ORMLLC is actively looking for timberland properties to acquire on behalf of the fund, which will invest in commercial timberlands in the Pacific Northwest.
“The closing of our second timber fund represents a significant step forward in the execution of our strategy to increase our timberland holdings through these fund vehicles,” said David L. Nunes, President and CEO. “Our co-investment alongside third-party investors enables us to spread our capital over a larger timberland portfolio than we could acquire on our own while simultaneously generating timberland management fees from management of fund assets.”
