External Growth from A to Z

A few examples


A Private Equity seeks a bolt-on for one of its portfolio companies active in Food Supplements, and mandates Sentosa. After a review of the company’s internal strategy, value drivers and capabilities, we set out on landscaping the priority geographies and product categories.
We do a pre-evaluation of actionability through exploratory discussions with owners of potential targets. We also evaluate the attractiveness of the business and identify the value drivers.
We use our knowledge of the market and our network of relations to source opportunities that have real potential.


A corporation is seeking to divest a bundle of small assets in the Consumer Healthcare space, but its M&A team is engaged in a major project.

Sentosa leads the entire process – Guiding and working with your Team from teaser, to identifying and contacting a broad list of strategic and financial potential buyers, to leading the creation of an IM, setting up the management presentations, overseeing the data room creations and managing Q&A, through to contract negotiations.


A PE is acquiring a company in FMCG in Spain. Sentosa assists with the creation of the business plan and with leading the due diligence. After acquisition, we can help translate the acquisition plan into execution, and oversee activation through a NED position.


A major consultancy is asked to design and help execute an international growth strategy in the Personal Care market and needs input from an expert in this space. We define the strategy and translate it into a clear definition of opportunity areas, and a concrete shortlist of ideas for acquisition, in-licensing or alliances.
