MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

DEAR VALUABLE BUSINESS PARTNERS AND MEMBERS OF THE VIEM INVESTMENT FAMILY,

Today, as we complete 28 years in the industries where we are present with our production and services, we are excited to be sprinting towards new targets… Our target is to continue our pioneering position in our productions and services and to continue bringing to life innovative products, productions, and applications that will increase the quality and contribute to the lives of our consumers.

For Viem Investment, 2015 was a year when existing investments in its areas of service in particular were improved, and pioneering innovations in retail and production industry were witnessed. In 2015, as in other years, we developed and continued our social responsibility projects which aimed at ensuring that future generations are able to take the initiative, are sensitive towards social subjects and the environment, and are well-equipped. The social benefits that we provided to the society in which we are active, the environment, and the economy in 28 years have crowned these successes.

In line with our corporate strategy, we launched a new growth initiative within Viem Investment, while we are expanding our existing production and investment portfolio and focused on the growth of our production and service companies. In the retail industry we opened the Izmir Balçova and Balıkesir Ayvalık branches of Tekzen Stores, which reached 53 in number. With our stores serving in 59 provinces, we reinforced our leading position in the industry and put our signature under important innovations in the field of retail.

With the motivation, excitement, and enthusiasm resulting in our successes for 2015, at the entire Viem Investment Family, we are determined to continue our rising success in 2016 with our creative and competent human resources—the most important resource—as well as our strong management team and our valuable customers who open a space in their lives for our services and goods.

In 2016, with all our group companies, we will continue to be one of the strongest supporters of the national economy and employment. By closely following the developments at home and abroad, we will put our name to profitable investment decisions and reinforce our strength with new strategic partnerships.

In all areas where we are active, we will continue our pioneering role in the industry with our open-to-change approach and be the symbol of quality and trust. We send our profound thanks with our employees and shareholders whose support we always feel.

Best regards,

MURAT GİGİN / CHAIRMAN OF BOARD OF DIRECTORS
