Message From The Board

Dear Valued Business Partners and Colleagues,

Since its inception, İlbak has aimed to play a key part in all its fields of activity, while also making it our mission to focus our business approach on value creation in all the sectors in which we operate.

Our company's first priority is to work to foster principles of competitive openness, entrepreneurship, efficiency and, most importantly, sustainability.

In the mining sector, which has become one of our core business areas recently, our companies have completed the R&D investments that we began pursuing in 2010. Ilan Marble, one of our mining companies, has started exporting marble by the year 2016. Asya Maden, another of our mining companies, completed the plant investments project and planning to start producing and exporting copper concentrate by 2017.

Our first five-star hotel, Ramada Plaza Tekstilkent, is now one of the main business hotels in İstanbul. Our Turkish master franchise operation with the Super 8 hotel chain, the economy brand of the Wyndham Hotel Group, will be launched in the near future.

One of İlbak's core business areas, the media sector, warrants particular attention. We aim to further our growth within different segments of this field, among them advertising, media marketing, media planning and communications. Extending the reach and diversity of our channels will help up us meet our goals, as will our newly launched initiatives to expand certain activities of ours to other countries in the region.

As we continue our swift but strategic growth process, our unwavering commitment to social values and social responsibility, ethics and environmental sensitivity remain the principal conditions of our success.

We do not pursue purely profit-oriented policies and stay sensitively attuned to the achievements and needs of all our partners, including shareholders, suppliers, customers and employees.

I strongly believe that, with the help of my visionary colleagues who always pursue the most forthright and efficient business practices, İlbak will continue to reach new heights of success, satisfying all the partners of our ever-evolving and developing organization.

Murat İlbak
