There are stages in the life of an enterprise, during which exceptional operations are required, which involve the entire corporate structure, the financial structure of the enterprise and the definition of the corporate, organisational structure (Governance). In this context, the role of the external advisor is often essential in order to provide the necessary professional support (surveys, implementation of projects for mergers and demergers). It also includes the provision of information to the third parties involved (banks, other members, institutions), as the advisor takes on the role of independent, authoritative third party.

2) Support of M&A operations between enterprises
The development of a firm is strictly linked to its ability to synergise and merge with other companies. In this context, the role of the external consultant becomes fundamental for the analysis of the market scenario, the identification of possible partners (or the identification of target companies in the event of acquisitions or mergers). Furthermore, the role of a corporate consultant with the necessary professional tools becomes essential in the negotiation stage and in the identification of the optimal procedures in an agreement. Santucci & Partners consultants have already assisted numerous firms in such projects. Their experience in dealing with the specific operations, characterized by unusual strategic and legislative constraints for cooperative companies, should be emphasised.

The approach of Santucci& Partners consultants focuses on the organizational and business variables, where the fiscal aspects are treated as obligations and a chance to review the selected strategic options. In practice, this means reviewing the company structure within the Group from a strategic viewpoint on the basis of opportunities in civil and fiscal law.
