Factor out a tensor from double contraction

Dear all,
I am trying to calculate a tensor

from the following equation:

The tensors

are known constant tensors.

The easiest try would be to :

but when I calculated the result manually with indices, the result was different, so this approach seems definitely wrong. 

My question is: is it possible to factor out

from the left hand side of first equation ?

Is there any alternate way to accomplish this task of calculating a tensor from such expression (which contains double contraction)?.
