Problem: Softbridge was a venture-funded software company in the enterprise software testing business.
Its lead venture investor was closing out its fund and needed to liquidate its investment in Softbridge.
The company also faced positioning problems because of its association with the OS/2 operating system.
Solution: The Catalyst Group repositioned the company, separating the company's product capabilities
from their operating system base, then sought a corporate buyer whose products and strategy aligned best with
Softbridge's to achieve the highest value.
Result: Catalyst negotiated an acquisition by Teradyne, Inc. , the world's largest supplier of automatic
test equipment and software for the electronics and telecommunications industries.
