Trivest AG

The Client:
Trivest AG (Austrian family company) looks back on 100 years of entrepreneurial tradition and has produced a well-known portfolio of internationally operating companies. With more than 650 employees, the group focuses on innovation and quality.

A group acquired years ago (companies in Austria and Germany) with focus on hardware trading, service and software development could not achieve profitability. Several restructuring attempts were largely unsuccessful due to the difficult market environment and the corona pandemic.

The Project:
Management Factory was commissioned to evaluate exit options for the specific investment group and to support the implementation of the separation.


  • Analysis phase - evaluation of optimized exit scenarios taking into account long-term obligations, corporate ties and the complex business model with different customer contracts.
  • Preparation of a detailed wind-down plan and integrated calculation of the financing requirements.
  • Support in the implementation of the solvent liquidation of the hardware and service area as well as in the spin-off and sale of the software division.
  • Customer projects and contracts were completed to the satisfaction of all stakeholders.
  • Amicable solutions with all employees as well as taking over key employees in the group.
