Sir Martin Sorrell quit as CEO of WPP in April amid an internal conduct investigation.
He returned to the market six weeks later with S4 Capital, a vehicle for acquisitions.
S4 Capital has struck its first deal: a €300 million takeover of Dutch digital agency MediaMonks.
WPP was also looking at buying MediaMonks and says Sorrell used proprietary information from his time as CEO. The ad giant claims Sorrell has breached his contract and BI understands WPP intends to withhold future share bonus payouts.

LONDON — S4 Capital, the new vehicle set up by advertising deal maker Sir Martin Sorrell, has completed the takeover of Dutch digital agency MediaMonks.
