External Growth from A to Z

A few examples

BUY SIDE ADVISORY

We do a pre-evaluation of actionability through exploratory discussions with owners of potential targets. We also evaluate the attractiveness of the business and identifies the value drivers.
We use our knowledge of the market and our network of relations to source opportunities that have real potential.

SELL-SIDE ADVISORY

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.
Our broad experience ensures your project is executed smoothly and efficiently.

ACCOMPANYING AN INVESTMENT

Thanks to a broad experience in operational functions in various circumstances and geographies, we can help translate the acquisition strategy and objectives into actual action plans and execution – understanding where the value drivers lie and how they can be further developed – and quickly identifying derailers such as speed of integration, competitive retaliation, etc – and addressing them.
