The Italian authorities found that the Italian subsidiary of the firm had EUR 75 million revenues which were not declared, and thus, not taxed. In addition, the firm is being investigated in Venice and Cagliari for allegedly illegalities in bids organized by public healthcare companies, according to the Italian media.
City Insurance, registered in Romania, allegedly obtained revenues from insurance via several intermediary firms in the Campania region, the home region of one of the firm’s shareholders. The main shareholder in the firm is Marcello De Cristofaro, which owns 71.2 percent of the shares.
