Trivest Acquires D&S Global Solutions

MIAMI — Trivest Partners (“Trivest” or the “Firm”) is pleased to announce it has acquired D&S Global Solutions (“D&S”). Founded in 1997, D&S is a technology-enabled, invoice-to-cash solutions provider focused on the business-to-business market. The D&S acquisitions expands Trivest’s footprint within the commercial receivable management industry with its prior acquisition of AGA.

D&S, headquartered in Austin, TX, was an early adopter of technology to allow for a distributed workforce.

D&S has grown internationally over the past decade, with expertise in invoice-to-cash solutions for Fortune 500 clients within agriculture, technology, energy, healthcare, telecommunications, and financial services.

“I am extremely proud of my D&S team and the outstanding results we have delivered for our clients with a focus on project performance and customer experience,” said Lonnie Larson. “To be honest, I was not in the market to sell my company; but my discussions with Trivest convinced me that they were the right partner to accelerate our growth through investments in customers, technology, employees, and geographic reach. As important, Trivest understands the D&S culture and vision to deliver world-class solutions for our clients.”

Forest Wester, Partner at Trivest, added, “We are pleased to partner with D&S. They have done an outstanding job over the past two decades of delivering industry-leading solutions within the commercial invoice-to-cash markets. D&S’s proprietary technology, suite of services, and global delivery capabilities provide an attractive opportunity to extend our platform with AGA within the B2B receivable management space.”

When you add in the opportunity to work with a talented and passionate leadership team at D&S — our ability to deliver transformative solutions for our clients is unlimited!”
