Sale of Sentaca Communications Ltd to Altran UK Holding Ltd

RSM advise Sentaca Communications Ltd on their sale to Altran UK Holding Ltd

The client

The RSM corporate finance team were initially introduced to Sentaca Communication Ltd (Sentaca) by the owner of a technology company that we had helped to sell two years earlier. Based in Slough, Sentaca is a niche supplier of consulting, solutions & services to the mobile, telecommunications & internet industry. The company has experienced rapid growth since it was first established in 2000.

Sentaca’s owner had received several unsolicited approaches and asked us to advise on running a formal sales process to achieve the best deal for the shareholder and employees.

Altran UK Holding Ltd quickly emerged as the most suitable purchaser offering Sentaca a strong platform to achieve further growth. Altran UK Holding Ltd is a subsidiary of Altran Technologies SA, a leading global provider of high-tech engineering consultancy services, operating in over 20 countries with over 21,000 employees. In the UK Altran have offices in Bath, Bristol, London, Loughborough, Manchester, Slough and Warwick.

The transaction was complex involving a demerger of Sentaca’s non-trading operations prior to the sale taking place.
