SUCCESSFUL IPO - BENE

Bene AG

Leading supplier of office furniture

Participation from September 2004 to November 2006 
Exit: IPO
UIAG & GEP investment team under
Kurt Stiassny and Herbert Roth

A downturn in the office furnishings market in Germany and Austria in parallel with development plans in other markets made it necessary for this traditional Austrian company to undergo a comprehensive reorganization program. The participation of financial investors UIAG (under Kurt Stiassny) and Global Equity Partners (under Herbert Roth) significantly strengthened the equity position of the Bene Group. Consequently, Bene was able to improve its competitiveness in the Austrian market and implement planned acquisitions in the growth markets of
Eastern Europe. The capital provider sold its interest after the company went public on the Vienna Stock Exchange in November 2006.

Today, Bene is one of Europe's leading business groups, setting trends with its designs, products, and services. Bene has been the undisputed market leader in Austria since the beginning of the 1970s. In the European rankings of the office furniture segment, Bene currently holds sixth place.
