BİMEKS’S MISSION
Bimeks’s mission is to develop pleasurable shopping environments in which new products and technologies spawned
by the digital revolution may be sold under suitable conditions of price, financing, service, and warranty.
BİMEKS’S STRATEGY
With 22 years of experience, Bimeks is a well-known and trusted name in the consumer electronics retailing business
line.
Bimeks pursues a multichannel, multi-format growth strategy that avoids the need for large amounts of capital
investment.
Bimeks’s strategy enhances its structural durability while making it possible for the company to keep pace with and
proactively respond to consumers’ constantly changing preferences and demands.
2
Bimeks will continue to open its new “Teknoport” format stores (stores with 1,000 m or more of floor space) while
effectively pursuing its unique Franchising Business Partner program as a way of expanding both its geographical reach
and its usable sales space.
By providing the backbone on which they may be supported, an extensive geographical reach is an essential element
of the company’s approach to web-based sales and services. The Bimeks Franchising Business Partner program was
conceived and designed as a way of expanding the company’s network of stores. First introduced in cities around the
country in 2010, as of end-2012 32 of the stores in the Bimeks were owned and operated by franchising business
partners.
Bimeks is a company that has the flexibility it needs to adapt to market conditions as they are directly affected both by
consumer trends and by a national economy characterized by steady growth. Such flexibility means that the company
is able to conduct its operations through stores in a range of formats and locations and that it can adjust its mix of
both as circumstances make necessary. This allows Bimeks to focus on responding to customers’ needs and developing
its retailing structures accordingly by means of a management team whose members are experienced, talented, and
familiar with Bimeks traditions.
Bimeks’s strategy is realized through a business model that pursues growth through three main delivery channels.
Bimeks’s goal is to open at least four large-format (Teknoport)
Teknoports:
stores in metropolitan areas every year.
E-store platform:
Pursuing nationwide
growth through
franchising business
partners:
The ongoing development of Bimeks’s online sales capabilities is a
matter of great importance.
Bimeks seeks to pursue growth outside metropolitan areas
primarily through the implementation of its franchising model.
Bimeks’s 2015 goals
In 2015 Bimeks intends to provide service in 154 stores having a total sales area of 75,000 m² in 81 cities and to
increase its existing market share.
Bimeks intends to achieve its goal of ranking among the top two players in its sector by 2015.

BİMEKS’S STRENGTHS
A unique approach to retailing: A business model that is enriched by web-driven sales
Bimeks has a unique business model which it has developed by examining and analyzing fundamental trends in
national and international consumer product markets, socioeconomic developments, and changes in demand. Taking
such issues into account, it has formulated a business model that complements a traditional physical presence by
simultaneously incorporating a strong online e-store as well. This model also represents one of the cornerstones of
Bimeks’s success.
Keeping customers accessing to the latest technologies
An extensive product line consisting of information technology products, consumer electronics, telecommunication
products. home appliances, white goods, and personal care products is a fundamental element that distinguishes
Bimeks and puts it in the front ranks in competition. The proactive approach that Bimeks takes in keeping up with
consumer preferences when deciding what products to bring into its stores is complemented by its effective
procurement and stock management competencies.
A brand that is synonymous with confidence, honesty, and support
The Bimeks brand is a strong and enduring one. Enjoying a high level of recognition, the Bimeks name is synonymous
with confidence, honesty, and support among consumers. Bimeks regards the reputation that it enjoys among
consumers as both a leader and an innovator as an important landmark on its growth roadmap. Bimeks is one of its
sector’s leading players in customer loyalty surveys.
The Bimeks difference in after-sales services
After-sales technical support has an important place in Bimeks’s service cycle. Bimeks’s approach to after-sales service
is one of the most important mainstays of its customers’ loyalty. The company gives as much importance to and is as
mindful of its after-sales services as its sales themselves.
Transition to a web-based business model: High growth potential
Bimeks reaches consumers not just through traditional “bricks-and-mortar” stores but also through web-based estores. Bimeks’s move in the direction of an internet-based business model in recent years nourishes the company’s
high growth potential and while also reinforcing its competitive strength.
In December 2011 Bimeks launched its “Bidakka” [One Minute Please] service that promises to deliver goods (up to
and including TV-sized products) to customers in 15 cities within 180 minutes following the customers’ orders.
Bimeks’s One Minute Please service also allows customers to determine the dates and times when their orders will be
delivered.
A strong management team
Bimeks has a strong, professional, and talented management team. By effectively and insightfully running the
company’s business while also motivating and managing its human resources, this management team is the guarantee
of the company’s ability to execute its business strategies in a correct and timely way as it advances towards its
corporate goals.

BİMEKS’S CUSTOMER FOCUS
At Bimeks, the customer is at the focal point of everything
Information technology and consumer electronics retailing requires that one do business in a market environment
that is highly competitive and volatile. At the same time, consumer demands are also constantly changing, which
means that one must simultaneously provide quality service that addresses and satisfies many different needs. Bimeks
is one of Turkey’s model service providers with a customer focus that embraces the elements of:
• Well-trained sales and after sales staff who are capable of providing customers with support whenever they need it
• A rich selection of fashion products
• A sophisticated store concept that allows customers to browse and examine while also providing relaxation and
refreshment opportunity with cafes for adults and play spaces for children
• Straightforward, fast, and effective sales and delivery processes
• Integrated physical and online sales competencies
• A solution-focused, high-quality, and seamless pre- and after-sales support system
• Attractive financing options.
Bimeks’s approach to service is one which is friendly responding to customers’ wishes immediately, in a reliable,
fast, and innovative way.
In order to make this approach an ongoing reality and to provide the consumer with the newest products available,
Bimeks focuses on:
• Continuously training its human resources
• Constantly satisfying the customer’s wishes in the most effective way possible before, during, and after sales
• Further developing Bimeks store concepts
Bimeks is firmly committed to continuing its investments in these areas.

THE BİMEKS RETAILING CONCEPT
Bimeks’s retailing concept is rooted in two types of store format–“Normal” and “Mega”–and in its Franchising
Business Partner program. The company regards its e-store platform as an inseparable extension of its core retailing
concept and as a complementary element of its multichannel approach.
At end-January 2013, Bimeks was serving customers through 71 stores.
Normal stores
Bimeks’s “Normal” class stores are medium-sized retail outlets with sales area ranging from 150 m² to 1,000 m² in size.
Normal stores are located in shopping centers where there is already sufficient customer traffic to justify them. They
stock and sell a limited number of goods that are carryable, valuable, and predominantly IT-oriented.
Mega stores: Teknoport
Bimeks mega stores are promoted under the “Teknoport” name and have sales area in the 1,000 m² to 4,000 m²
range. Through its Teknoport outlets, Bimeks offers its customers a huge array of products under the same roof. The
Teknoport concept requires that the stores be able to generate customer traffic on their own. Introduced initially in
İstanbul, the Teknoport concept was subsequently deployed in Adana, Ankara, Bursa, and Gaziantep. At end-2012
there were nine Teknoport stores in the Bimeks chain.
Bimeks franchise stores
Originally introduced in 2010, stores that operate under Bimeks franchise agreements represent an important element
of the company’s future growth plans. The Bimeks franchise model is unique as it does not burden the franchisee with
the inventory financing and stock-maintenance costs. This model makes it possible for Bimeks to expand its
geographical presence more rapidly while also providing franchisees with a business opportunity that has substantial
profit and growth potential. Among existing Bimeks franchisees there are some who have invested in more than one
store located in different cities. In the Bimeks franchising model, the franchisee concentrates only on sales and store

management: issues such as stock management and national-level marketing are the responsibility of the franchisor
(Bimeks).
Online store
Located at www.bimeks.com.tr, Bimeks’s E-store went into service for the first time in 2009. Through its use of
attractive campaigns and a carefully crafted pricing strategy, it continues to attract increasingly more customers as
time goes by. Bimeks believes that online sales through its e-store will be one of the engines of its future growth in the
years ahead. In 2012, online sales accounted for nearly 7% of Bimeks’s total sales revenues. The web-based channel
however is supported by an extensive geographical reach that makes it possible for goods purchased online to be
delivered to customers faster, more cheaply, and more reliably.

BİMEKS SERVICE POINTS
1
At end-2012, the Bimeks extensive chain of service points consisted of 69 stores of which 13 were located in İstanbul;
three each in Ankara, Antalya, and Muğla; two each in Aydın, Bursa, Hatay, İzmir, Kocaeli, Konya, Manisa, Ordu, and
Samsun; and one each in Adana, Aksaray, Balıkesir, Batman, Bolu, Çanakkale, Çankırı, Çorum, Denizli, Diyarbakır,
Düzce, Elazığ, Erzincan, Eskişehir, Gaziantep, Kahramanmaraş, Kastamonu, Kayseri, Kütahya, Malatya, Nevşehir,
Sakarya, Sivas, Şanlıurfa, Tekirdağ, Trabzon, Uşak, Van, and Edirne.
Mega stores:
Bimeks has nine mega-format (Teknoport) stores: Yeşilköy Teknoport (İstanbul/Avrupa), Metrocity Teknoport
(İstanbul/Avrupa), Forum Marmara Teknoport (İstanbul/Avrupa), Neomarin Teknoport (İstanbul/Anadolu), Buyaka
Teknoport (İstanbul/Anadolu), Acity Teknoport (Ankara), Bedesten Teknoport (Gaziantep), Nilüfer Teknoport (Bursa),
and Seyhan Teknoport (Adana).
Bimeks’s core business activity consists of consumer electronics, white goods, small home appliances, and information
technology products retailing. This extensive mix means that the company can attract a broad range of customers and
serve them across an equally broad range of needs. The current product mix is constantly being updated and can be
viewed at any time at www.bimeks.com.tr.
2
Because they must have at least 1,000 m of sales area, Bimeks’s mega-format (Teknoport) stores not only sell
information technology products, consumer electronics, personal care products, small home appliances, digital games
and music, and toys but also have a variety of non-retailing spaces such as cafes, playgrounds, print centers, and DHL
contact points that customers may take advantage of.
In 2009, Bimeks began offering an extensive lineup of domestic and foreign white goods brands at its stores. In
addition to being sold in provinces where these stores are located, such appliances can also be ordered online and
delivered to any address in Turkey.

BİMEKS: PAST AND PRESENT
The early years and initial ventures
Founded in 1990 by the Akgiray family, Bimeks was active in the importation and sales of software in Turkey during its
earliest years.
In 1996 Bimeks decided to refocus itself on information technology product retailing and it opened its first retail stores
in İstanbul.
By the end of the same decade, the Bimeks brand and retailing concept had firmly established the company’s
presence in the market and it began to expand.
Developments in equity and post-crisis growth
In the early 2000s, Bimeks adhered to a policy of pursuing growth and building up its equity resources.
Despite the severe crisis that the Turkish economy went through in 2001, Bimeks not only defended its market
position but also increased the number of its stores while revitalizing its retailing concepts in light of customer
demand. During the same period, the company registered steady and solid increases in its turnover while continuing
to perform and grow strongly.
Growth and expansion
Bimeks has been focusing on rapid growth and expansion since 2005. The overall number of stores in operation
increased to 21 in 2006 while the company continued to invest without letup within the framework of its strategic
business plan. By end-2008, Bimeks had 30 stores with a total of 18,600 m² of sales area.
As it underwent this growth, Bimeks also drew the attention of domestic and international investors. In the last
quarter of 2008, London-based RP Capital Group purchased a 10% stake in Bimeks.
The global crisis and Bimeks
The global crisis that so deeply affected economies around the world caused the Turkish economy to shrink by 4.7% in
2009. A strong and disciplined financial structure however made it possible for Bimeks to maintain its market presence
and to implement productivity-focused strategies even in the face of global crisis conditions.
Return to strong economic growth: The Bimeks Franchising Business Partner program and e-store
With the Turkish economy recovering strongly from the global economic crisis in 2010, Bimeks launched the
Franchising Business Partner program that it had been working on for some time and the first such stores were
opened that year in Kastamonu, Manisa, and Diyarbakır. Another fourteen franchise stores were opened in 2012 in
the provinces of Uşak, Sivas, Ordu, Antalya, Manisa, Aydın, Aksaray, Tekirdağ, Muğla, İstanbul, Edirne, Çanakkale, and
Kocaeli. With these additions, the total number of stores in Bimeks’s national chain reached 69 of which 32, nearly a
third, were franchisee-owned and operated. At the same time and because Bimeks regards online sales as one of the
driving forces of its future growth, e-store project development and investment activities were also carried out last
year.
Sustainable growth through a multichannel growth strategy
Bimeks engages in a never-ending effort to provide its customers with the very best. The company seeks to create
more value for all of its stakeholders through its nationwide growth plan. Bimeks engages in a never-ending effort to
provide its customers with the very best. The company seeks to create more value for all of its stakeholders through
its nationwide growth plan. Consistent with its reputation as a highly visible and recognizable technology products
retailer in Turkey, Bimeks once again achieved above-sector average growth rates by registering strong results in total
sales and average sales revenues per square meter of sales space and per employee.

CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE
Esteemed shareholders,
Welcome to Bimeks annual general meeting for 2012.
Before presenting our 2012 financial statements for your consideration, I want to take this opportunity first to review
our company’s progress last year and then to share with you my thoughts on changes taking place around the world
and about the future of our business.
2012 was a year in which Bimeks continued to develop soundly in terms of productivity, growth, and market share.
Our business model is rooted in the principle of operational productivity. That model continues to be the engine
driving the sustainable growth which we have been experiencing during the last four years.
Supported by our robust financial structure and high level of operational productivity, we posted yet another year of
successful results in 2012. Our net sales reached TL 496 million. When translated, that means that the average value of
our net sales per square meter of floor space amounts to TL 13,400 and that the average value of our net sales per
employee works out to TL 720,000.
These results also mean that we increased our total turnover by 16% and 25% as measured on a USD and TL basis
respectively. Both of these growth rates are above both the technology retailing and the general retailing sectoral
averages. Our company continues to expand its market share among technology retailers and brought it to the 8.6%
level in 2012.
When we examine the growth that we registered in 2010-2012, its sustainability becomes immediately obvious.
During this three-year period, our company’s sales volume expanded by an annualized compound rate of 38% while
the same rates among consumer electronics retailers and technology retailers were 24% and 37% respectively.
In 2012 our company booked a gross sales profit of TL 89 million and a gross profit margin of 18%. Due to the intense
competition in our sector and to a number of tactical moves that we made, the gross margin fell 4% behind last year’s
ratio. In a year in which economic growth at the national level lost momentum, Bimeks booked an EBITDA of TL 30.8
million and an EBITDA margin of around 6.2%.
The number of our stores increased by 23% in 2012 with the result that we ranked in second place nationally on this
measure at year-end. We began serving customers at thirteen new locations. These additions brought the total
2
number to 69 by year-end while our total sales area increased by 15% and reached 40,000 m . In 2012 the total value
of our store investments approached TL 6 million.
In line with our commitment to ensuring that the customer has the benefit of a consistently positive and enjoyable
shopping experience, we shall be opening still more service points and expanding our nationwide market penetration
in 2012.
Bimeks 2012 Annual Report
11
Our goal over the next three years is to extend the roster of provinces in which consumers have immediate access to
our branded stores from the existing 42 to the full complement of 81 and in this process to bring our total sales space
2
to the 75,000 m level. The well-established and tested values of our brand, our robust financial structure, and our
superior human resources will make it easy for us to achieve these objectives and to sustain Bimeks’s advance towards
becoming one of the leading players in its sector.
Our franchising business partners will power our nationwide growth in Turkey.
It gives me pleasure to point out here that the franchising program which we launched in 2010 continues to have an
important leveraging effect on our growth. Conceived, designed, and implemented to be a win/win proposition, this
program has made it possible for us to enter into 32 new business partnerships in just the last two years. Thanks to
the strong commitment with which our business partners identify with it, our unique franchising model is thriving and
is one of the most important components of our organic growth strategy.
Our intention is to make effective use of our franchising program as a way of extending our presence into other cities
around the country. In line with this, we expect to be opening 20-25 new stores every year so as to bring the total
number of our franchising business partners to at least 100 by the end of 2015.
Our e-store continues to author new successes.
We conceived and launched our e-store in line with our multichannel growth strategy. It performed very successfully
last year and topped the league table among similar applications in the sector as measured by relative contribution to
total sales. Online sales accounted for 6.7% of our total sales in 2012. In absolute terms they were TL 6 million higher
than they were the previous year and reached TL 33 million in value.
The fully-integrated nature of our web-based sales is supported by the high level of national penetration that we enjoy
and by the strength of our logistical infrastructure. The ability to shop on line making use of real-time product and
stock availability information is just one of the reasons why more and more customers prefer Bimeks. More than half
of those who called at www.bimeks.com.tr in 2012 were first-time visitors. As an indication of the degree of
recognition that we have achieved in online retailing in such a short time is a remarkable achievement indeed.
Online sales will remain one of the engines of our future growth in the period ahead. In line with this expectation, we
have successfully carried out a wide range of software and IT system investments that will facilitate the web-based
integration of our needs as a company such as investor and shareholder relations, customer relationship
management, and enterprise resource planning to mention but three.
We also plan to further develop our online store by adding new features that will make it an even more effective
contributor to the realization of our productivity-focused growth strategy. This is consistent with our commitment to
ensuring that our customers experience the same Bimeks difference that they enjoy in our stores when they’re
shopping online.
Esteemed shareholders,
In this second part of my message I want to share with you some of my views about the business world and about our
company’s future.
Competing and becoming a leader in a rapidly-changing World
Over the last three decades, the process of globalization has reached a level that few if any could have truly foreseen.
Today we have a world economy that is open to every actor everywhere. What this means however is that the
business world is confronted by and must cope with a constantly unfolding process of change. The truly revolutionary
nature of progress in information technologies and the internet economy which they have spawned have forced
companies to undergo radical and rapid transformations no matter what the cost. Change has become essential to
one’s market existence and survival. Constant advances in IT have cause companies to greatly simply their
organizational structures while the internet has redefined how we do business, how we approach marketing–in short–
everything that makes us what we are.
As we approach the middle of the second decade of the 21st century, we see that mobility and social media have
gained importance and that algorithmic commerce based on sound market and customer data has begun to set new
rules defining how we must do business and compete. We are advancing quickly towards a market structure in which

prices will be determined algorithmically and supply will be developed through an approach that is proactively
compatible with demand. We note with particular interest the many undertakings in this direction which the global
giants of e-retailing are presently involving themselves in.
We stand at a critical point today where every decision and action will be shaping the future. Even as the global
economy and the business world undergoing the changes that I have just briefly touched upon, we are also searching
for ways out of the global financial crisis whose effects we still see all around us. In the midst of this vast landscape,
our own country advances resolutely with the ease and confidence of someone who completed their homework on
time: Turkey’s strong and sustainable growth potential now distinguishes it at the global level.
We believe that all economic actors–ourselves included–are charged with a number of serious responsibilities that will
be shaping the future. We have no choice but to ensure economic sustainability by transforming globalization and
change into processes capable of benefiting everyone.
Our company clearly defined the goals that it wants to achieve in the midst of these changes and laid out the roadmap
that it would be following. It set out on that course some time ago and continues to perform soundly as it moves
resolutely towards leadership of its sector. We know that the key to success in this new order is a business model that
addresses its needs effectively and productively. We continue to focus our attentions and efforts in this direction.
I am completely confident that, with the support of you, our valued stakeholders, we will easily achieve our 2015
goals.
So long as it can depend upon your strong and committed support, such as was demonstrated when we increased our
equity resources in 2012, Bimeks’s progress will continue to be nourished by healthy, sustainable growth and the
company will create even more value for all concerned.
Bringing this message now to a close, I take this opportunity to respectfully thank you all on my own behalf as well as
that of the Board of Directors as I now present Bimeks’s annual report and independently audited financial statements
for 2012.

THE WORLD AND TURKEY IN 2012
The world economy lost still more momentum in 2012.
While the USA was preoccupied with presidential and congressional elections and with debates about weak growth
and a looming “fiscal cliff” in 2012, the euro-zone’s leading economies found themselves having to contend
simultaneously with massive public debts and with wobbly banking systems. This was the context in which some of the
world’s developing economies, Turkey being one of them, focused their attentions on managing their own “soft
landings”.
Last year developing countries’ central banks adhered to existing loose-money policies aimed at supporting economic
activity and in some cases they even expanded them. The monetary authorities of developing countries, the Turkish
central bank (TCMB) being one of them, relaxed their own money supplies as global economic conditions seemed to
make necessary.
For the foreseeable future, it seems likely that the monetary policies of developed countries’ central banks will remain
the prime determinants of the course of global economic activity. Another medium-term expectation is that the
historically low interest rates that currently prevail will remain relatively unchanged.
In the European Union, which is Turkey’s natural hinterland and still its biggest trading partner, the creation of a new
roadmap showing the way towards a unified banking system is having a positive impact on expectations about the
future. The European Stability Mechanism, which should gain effectiveness in the years ahead, is likely also to bring
about some improvements in financing terms in the EU.
In the wake of the global financial crisis, the global economy is still trying to regain its balance.
Developing countries’ economies still suffer from serious problems however. This exerts pressure on global financial
markets and frequently leads to volatilities.
It is thought that measures so far taken by developing countries’ policymakers will lead to at least modest
improvements in economic activity in 2013. Developing economies by contrast are likely to perform rather more
strongly than they did in 2012 thanks to their relatively better recovery on the foreign trade and financing fronts.
According to the most recent IMF reports, the world economy grew by about 3.2% in 2012 and it appears that this
growth rate will pick up a bit of speed and reach the 3.3% level in 2013.
The Turkish economy continued to distinguish itself in 2012.
Growth rates in the Turkish economy began to slow down in 2012. The loss in momentum appears to be attributable
primarily to weak domestic demand and to contractions in private-sector investment. In the first three quarters of
2012, growth rates of 3.3%, 2.9%, and 1.6% respectively were recorded. The foreign trade deficit shrank but this
appears to have been due to fewer imports. Such growth as there was stemmed primarily from exports and from
public-sector outlays. In the third quarter of the year, manufacturing grew by 1.3%, services by 2.2%, and agriculture
by 2.9%.
Early indicators suggest that consumer demand underwent a mild recovery in the last quarter of the year. Leading
indicator indexes, figures published by the Turkish Exporters Assembly, and three-month domestic and foreign market
order projections made in September all show signs of some slight improvement. The government’s Medium-Term
Program, announced in October, foresees an overall 3.2% rate of growth in 2012. The program bases this projection
on an expected moderate upturn in domestic demand counteracting the impact of weaker net goods and services
exports in the last quarter.
Low rates of growth witnessed in the Turkish economy had an impact on the current account deficit as well.
The nine-month rise in exports and decline in imports continued into the fourth quarter with the result that the
foreign trade deficit, which stood at USD 105.9 billion at end-2011, was down to USD 83.9 billion twelve months later.
In 2011, Turkey’s exports corresponded to 56% of its imports by value; in 2012, this ratio rose to 64.5%. The biggest
contributors to this improvement in the foreign trade balance were (1) export growth nourished by new markets,
especially in African countries, that Turkish exporters responding to weak demand in Europe ventured into and (2)
persistent contractions in imports.
Bimeks 2012 Annual Report
14
The improvement in the foreign trade balance naturally showed up in the current account deficit as well. The deficit,
which stood at USD 77 billion at end-2011, was down to USD 48.9 billion 12 months later. Similarly the ratio of the
current account deficit to GDP, which was 10% in 2011, is now thought to have fallen to the 6.0%-6.3% level in 2012.
Consumer prices in December 2012 were 6% higher than what they were in December 2011. On a twelve-month
average basis, the increase was a somewhat higher 8.89%. Looking at producer prices, we see that the December-onDecember rise was 2.45% while the twelve-month average was 6.09%. The two biggest contributors to lower
consumer price inflation appear to have been (1) a gradual decline in 12-month price rises in basic goods and (2)
relatively favorable movements in unprocessed food prices. While moderate growth in global non-agricultural
commodity prices, stable exchange rates, weaker economic activity, and restrained increases in service prices all
helped keep inflation low, their beneficial effects were lessened by public-sector price (especially energy price)
“adjustments” as well as by changes in tax rates that tended to push inflation up.
With the benefits of inflation management and stabilization becoming more apparent, after midyear 2012, TCMB
began supporting the process through a series of monetary policy measures by means of which it gradually increased
its supply of market liquidity and pushed down average funding costs. However while lowering its policy rate and
cutting the upper band of the interest rate corridor, the bank also raised banks’ reserve requirements. The Monetary
Policy Committee justified this seemingly contradictory action by saying that flexibility at both ends of monetary policy
was a good idea in the face of persistent uncertainties about the future course of the global economy.
However overdue it may have been, last year’s raising of Turkey’s country rating to the investment-grade level was
persuasive confirmation of the potent success of the Turkish economy. In November, Fitch Ratings boosted Turkey’s
long term credit rating from BB+ to BBB- (Stable), thus returning the country to the investment-grade category for the
first time in decades. Among the justifications that Fitch cited for this rise were reduced short-term macro-financial
risks related to the Turkish economy, a reduction in the public sector borrowing requirement, a strong banking
industry characterized by significant medium-term growth prospects, and a well-diversified national economy.

THE CONSUMER ELECTRONICS RETAILING SECTOR
The consumer electronics retailing sector continued to grow in 2012. The global market for consumer electronics is
2
thought to have been worth close to USD 14 billion last year.
Although suffering from a contraction brought on by the global economic crisis that has been impacting the world
economy since 2008, the information technology retailing and consumer electronics markets flattened out in 2009
and resumed growing in 2010. The total value of the IT, consumer electronics, white goods, and home appliance
retailing sector (from which are excluded corporate/institutional and public-sector procurements) is estimated to have
been worth about USD 14 billion in 2012.
According to findings published by GfK Turkey, a market research institute, the market grew by an average 3% a year
between 2007 and 2012. Between 2013 and 2015 by contrast it is expected to grow by 19% a year and should be
worth about USD 23.5 billion by the end of that period.
The strong growth shown by Turkey’s IT market in the early 2000s attracted the attention of both domestic and
international investors and some of the world’s leading retailers ventured into the country. As a result of this process,
there was a significant rise in the number of companies active in IT and consumer electronics retailing as competition
achieved an increasingly international dimension.
Computers and peripherals accounted for a 13% share of the Turkish consumer electronics market in 2012. Turkey
today represents one of the biggest markets for personal computers (PC) anywhere in Europe, the Middle East, and
Africa. The strongest growth in the Turkish market is taking place in the mobile computer segment.
In 2003, just 673,000 PCs were sold in all of Turkey; in 2013 that number reached 2.1 million units sold. According to
projections, PC sales are expected to grow by 17.9% a year on average and to reach 3.3 million units sold in 2015.
Another vigorously growing segment is mobile phones, nearly 12 million of which were sold in 2012. Such sales are
expected to continue growing by 16.7% a year in 2013-2015.
Looking at product/household penetration rates however, Turkey ranks low compared with EU-27 countries on such
measures as PC, mobile phone, and internet subscription ownership. This is seen as the clearest possible evidence of
strong and untapped growth potential.

Figures published by GfK Group

In consumer appliances retailing, white goods still accounted for the biggest share of sales in 2012 at 32%.
Nevertheless this was followed close on by telecommunications products (27%) and by consumer electronics products
(20%).
Technology retailers increase their market presence
Since 2009, technology retailers have been grabbing a steadily bigger share of the business of consumer electronics
stores. In 2011 the sector as a whole saw its sales increase by 17%; among technology retailers, sales grew by 37%, in
other words more than twice that rate.
According to figures published by GfK, technology retailers booked a total turnover worth nearly USD 3.3 billion in
2012.

ASSESSMENT OF ACTIVITIES IN 2012
STRATEGIES AND PERFORMANCE
A leading name in Turkey’s information technologies and consumer electronics retailing sector, Bimeks continued to
grow soundly in 2012. Increasing both the number of its stores and its total sales space all year long, Bimeks booked
total sales worth TL 495 million last year.
Bimeks’s corporate objectives are, first and foremost, to be a leading retailer of information technologies and
consumer electronics in Turkey with stores and extensive sales area located throughout the country, whose
distinguishing feature is after-sales services, and which offers customers immediate, streamlined financial solutions
and options (such as minimum stationery) which goes beyond more traditional stores, always aiming to be one of the
sector’s top two players.
According to GfK TEMAX (Technical Market Index) figures, the global consumer electronics retailing sector was worth
close to USD 14 billion in 2012. What GfK calles “organized technology retailers” (of which group Bimeks is a member)
accounted for about a quarter or USD 3.3 billion of that.
Among organized technology retailers in Turkey, Bimeks controlled a 8.6% market share in 2012.
Last year Bimeks increased its retailing turnover by 16% and 25% on a USD and TL basis respectively. Both rises are
above the technology retailing and the general retailing sectoral averages.
38% growth in 2010-2012
In 2012 Bimeks increased its net sales revenues by 25% to TL 495 million. As measured in Turkish liras, the compound
annual growth rates (CAGR) in sales between 2010 and 2012 work out as follows:
• 24% among consumer electronics retailers
• 37% among technology products retailers
• 38% at Bimeks.
In a year in which economic growth at the national level lost momentum, Bimeks booked a gross sales profit of TL 89
million and a gross profit margin of 18%. The latter figure is down slightly from the previous year’s 22.1% and this can
be attributed both to intense competition in the sector and to a number of tactical decisions which the company made
to cope with it.
Bimeks 2012 Annual Report
19
Personal computers and peripherals accounted for a 33% share of total sales in 2012. Bimeks sold 131,000 PCs last
year, of which no fewer than 119,000 consisted of notebook and netbook units. TV sets accounted for a 21% share of
total sales, more than ten points behind PC sales. The strongest year-on growth among product groups was witnessed
in the mobile phone segment, where sales increased by 55% in 2012.
Looking at a geographical breakdown of the company’s sales, we see that İstanbul accounted for a 33% of the total
followed in turn by Ankara (9%) and İzmir (6%). What this means of course is that sales from other parts of the country
contributed more than half (52%) of the total last year. This is evidence of the insightfulness of Bimeks’s store mix and
marketing strategies, in further support of which the company continued to strengthen its penetration and market
presence in locations outside Turkey’s three biggest cities.
The crucial importance of operational productivity
Productivity is a crucially important component of Bimeks’s growth strategy. In 1998-2012, the CAGR expansion in the
total number of the company stores was 25% while its total sales space increased by 37%. Bimeks’s performance as
2
measured by net sales/m and net sales/employee remain well above sectoral averages: the average value of net sales
per square meter of floor space amounted to TL 13,400 and the average value of net sales per employee was TL
720,000 in 2012.
Bimeks continued to increase the total number of its stores in every quarter except the third last year. The company
began serving customers at 13 new locations in 2012, thereby bringing the total number of stores to 69 and increasing
2
total sales space by 15% to 40,000 m in 42 cities. Last year the total value of Bimeks’s store investments approached
TL 6 million. The 23% rise in store numbers boosted Bimeks to second place in the sector on that measure.

The Franchising Business Partner Model: The engine of Bimeks’s nationwide growth
Bimeks intends to implement a nationwide growth plan and to generate more value for its shareholders while
remaining firmly committed to its pledge to provide its customers with the very best.
In 2010 Bimeks launched its “Franchising Business Partners” program and its unique methodology. This model offers a
“win/win” situation for all parties through its distinctive earnings design. The company believes that the model will be
one of the driving forces of Bimeks’s strategy of expanding its store network throughout the country.
Under this model, which converts the fixed costs of store operations into variable outlays, franchisees will pay Bimeks
a one-off trademark fee. In this model, the franchisee bears the costs of building and opening a new store and retains
a fixed percentage of the proceeds from the sales that he makes on Bimeks’s behalf. This enables the franchisee to
cover his operating expenses while also providing part of his profit.
In this system, franchisees operate as official Bimeks outlets. This means, among other things, that they issue invoices
in Bimeks’s name. However Bimeks retains ownership of the inventory (merchandise) that is maintained at the store.
Software designed for the control and management of the planned franchising network has been developed and is
currently up and running at existing Bimeks stores.
Fourteen new franchise stores were opened in 2012, thereby bringing the total number of such stores to 32 in 23
cities.
Bimeks is fully committed to further developing its franchising model and to expanding the scope and extent of its
market penetration throughout Turkey.
The address of the sector’s leader: www.bimeks.com.tr
In the first quarter of 2009, Bimeks launched its first online sales modules on its corporate website located at
www.bimeks.com.tr and began introducing customers to the rich array of products the company had on offer. So
popular was Bimeks’s online store among customers that within just two short years, it was making a bigger
contribution to total sales than was the case with any other e-store in the sector.
Online sales accounted for a 6.7% share of Bimeks’s total sales last year. Proceeds from such sales increased from TL
27 million in 2011 to TL 33 million in 2012.
Bimeks enjoys a high level of brand recognition as well as a strong degree of consumer confidence, both of which are
vitally important components of any online sales model that aspires to sustainability. Having completed the dynamic
integration of the logistical infrastructure of its physical stores with its web-based software, Bimeks is now in a
position to provide shopping opportunities based on real-time product and stock-level information.
Bimeks 2012 Annual Report
21
Based on 2012 figures, www.bimeks.com.tr received an average of more than 2.1 million hits a month, during which
some 23 million pages were viewed. The number of pages viewed per visitor was 6.5 on average while the average
visiting time was 5.12 minutes. More than half (50.7%) of these hits were made by first-time visitors.
Bimeks’s goal is to increase the contribution made to total sales revenues by online sales to the 20% level by 2015.
“One Moment Please”: A pioneering service that enhances customer loyalty
In December 2011 Bimeks introduced its “Bidakka” [“One Minute Please”] service for its online store customers.
Designed to be a component of the Bimeks online store, “One Minute Please” takes a boutique approach that
transforms the delivery of goods purchased online into a service that can be tailored according to the customer’s
wishes.
“One Minute Please” comes with two options. One is “Express Delivery”, by which Bimeks promises to deliver goods
within 180 minutes of the time that an online order is confirmed. The other is “Scheduled Delivery”, by which Bimeks
promises to deliver goods at a customer-specified date and time. “One Minute Please” is the first service of its kind
not just in Turkey but in the world and only Bimeks offers it. Currently available in fifteen cities in the provinces of
İstanbul, Ankara, İzmir, and Bursa, the company is working on projects to make “One Minute Please” available to
customers in all provinces. In 2012, 4,325 customers took advantage of Bimeks’s “One Moment Please” service.
Bimeks offers financial solution options that further strengthen customer satisfaction under tough market
conditions.
The financial solution options offered to customers represent one of the most important ways that Bimeks
distinguishes itself from its competitors. Since it became operational in 1990, Bimeks has been developing trust-based
business relationships with commercial banks and financial institutions which it now deploys to provide its customers
with the most suitable and convenient financing options.
Adhering to a streamlined and straightforward service approach, the financial solution options offered to customers
by Bimeks make a significant contribution to customer loyalty while bolstering its reputation as a retailer who is
preferred by an increasingly greater number of consumers.
A leading supplier of premium services
Bimeks strives continuously and intensively to provide its customers with the very best as it seeks to be the company
that is the first to introduce Turkey to the best practices that are available in global markets.
Extended warranties, expanded coverage, and premium service plans, which are a common practice in other
countries, are an area that Bimeks has been exploring intensively for some time. Bimeks believes that such options will
impact favorably on customer satisfaction and the company is currently involved in preparations to introduce a
number of them.

• Portable PC trade-ins
Under its trade-in program, Bimeks buys used portable computers at their current market value, effectively
discounting the cost while also improving the payment options when a customer purchases a new one. In this way,
those who want to replace an older-model computer can do so under attractive financing conditions and without
suffering a financial loss on their old machines.
• Check-ups
Bimeks’s “Computer Check-Up” campaigns provide highly advantageous maintenance opportunities for customers’
machines no matter what their make or model. Customers may also benefit from extended maintenance and repair /
spare part services against payment of a separate charge.
Another of Bimeks’s goals is to keep a very close watch on technology and to be the first to sell products that
incorporate innovations. Bimeks is also determined to adhere to its specified after-sales services quality commitments.
The company offers a wide range of solutions that address particular needs in the form of charge-based service
packages especially for newly launched products.
Bimeks and Miles&Smiles synergy
Members of Turkish Airlines (THY) frequent-flyer program (called “Miles&Smiles”) earn travel points when they
purchase products sold by Bimeks stores. All product categories qualify for this plan. Depending on the actual type of
card that they hold, shoppers earn between one and four travel miles for each EUR 1.00 that they spend. The points
that are earned in this campaign can be used to purchase tickets on both domestic and international THY flights.
Originally launched in 2008, Bimeks customers earned a total of 510,824 travel miles in 2012.
The Bimeks difference: After-sales services
With its experienced team and specially designed service strategy, Bimeks is focused on providing its customers with
the very best in service not just before and during sales but afterwards as well. Bimeks’s goal in after-sales services is
to ensure that customers’ pleasurable shopping experience at a Bimeks venue is sustained and kept alive long
afterwards as well.
Under the heading of after-sales services, Bimeks ensures customer satisfaction in the following ways:
• Products that turn out to be defective immediately after sale are replaced by the store and/or importer.
• In-warranty units arriving for repair are fixed as quickly as possible and in such a way as not to cause hardship for the
customer.
• Wishes and complaints received at the Bimeks call center (0216 444 2211) by telephone or email are responded to
and resolved as quickly and effectively as possible.
Having responded to 167,154 calls in 2011, the Bimeks call center saw that number rise to 289,898 in 2012.

Mystery shopper visits
As part of its customer satisfaction activities, Bimeks has been using the “Mystery Shopper” method to evaluate its
stores since 2004.
Under this program, which is contracted out to an independent service provider, the results of visits are announced
among all stores in the form of monthly reports in which premises are evaluated by means of points assigned by
mystery shoppers for such things as store physical appearance, cashier services, product returns and replacements,
and so on. The results of these visits are used as input when planning store and personnel development and training
activities.

R&D AND INVESTMENTS
Bimeks engages in a wide range of R&D efforts and undertakes investments not only to improve its financial
performance but also to enhance the added value that it creates for its business partners, its customers, and all of its
other stakeholders.
Such activities require the collaborative efforts of many different people with a host of responsibilities ranging from IT
infrastructure to business processes and human resources. Highlights of some of the activities undertaken in this area
during the reporting period are summarized below.
INFORMATION SYSTEMS
In order to better deal with the lingering effects of the global economic crisis that broke out in 2008 and also
recognizing the threats to its market share arising from imports, Bimeks undertook information systems investments
whose underlying aim was to strengthen the two most critical measures of retailing success: average annual turnover
2
/ m of sales space and average annual turnover / employee. This resulted in the introduction of two software
solutions: Supply & Demand Management and Personnel Incentives Management.
The Supply & Demand Management (SDM) program gives Bimeks a significant advantage over its competitors by
automating the processes involved in the procurement, storage, and delivery of products and even their placement in
stores.
The Personnel Incentives Management (PIM) program automates the processes of incentivizing personnel based on
their performance.
Both SDM and PIM became operational in 2010 and are now in use. They are regularly updated in line with market
and sector developments.
Franchising system
One of the goals of the Bimeks Franchising Business Partner model is to provide a way to share operating costs fairly
between the company and the franchisee. Under the model’s unique methodology, a portion of a franchisee’s
personnel, rent, and other operating costs are covered by Bimeks, with the actual percentage being determined by the
franchisee’s turnover.
As of end-2012, Bimeks was collaborating with franchising business partners in the operation of 32 stores located in 23
2
cities. These stores have 250 m of floor space each and involve franchisee investments on the order of TL 500-700
thousand. In order to strengthen the trust and loyalty of its franchising business partners, Bimeks continues to
undertake investments and improve infrastructure.
Under the Bimeks franchising model, all stores conform to the same format and every franchisee benefits from the
same information systems and company know-how. Every franchisee has equal access to the SDM and PIM systems as
well as to software and logistical infrastructure and support in the conduct of web-based sales.
Increasing online effectiveness
Bimeks believes that online sales through its e-store will be one of the engines of its future growth in the years ahead.
In line with this belief, Bimeks has undertaken information system and software investments worth about TL 13
million over the last three years that will facilitate the web-based integration of its needs as a company such as
investor and shareholder relations, customer relationship management, and enterprise resource planning. TL 300
thousand was spent on such investments during 2012.
The user-friendly interface of the Bimeks online store was specially designed to give customers convenient access to a
wealth of dynamic content that provides them with all of the technical and visual information they may need to make
informed product choice decisions. An important feature of the e-store’s software technology is that data and content
received from suppliers can be fully integrated into Bimeks’s own product and marketing management systems and
with customer-specific data.
The Bimeks online store makes it possible to manage content quickly, economically, and effectively. Dynamic
integration of physical stores, logistical infrastructure, and web software means that sales can be made based on
product and stock-availability information provided in real time from every store. One result of this is that Bimeks has
the capability in major cities to fetch and deliver a product that has been ordered online in about as little time as
Bimeks 2012 Annual Report
25
might be required to make and deliver a pizza. The company’s network of physical stores gives it the geographical
presence it needs for fast deliveries and efficient support. By speeding up stock turnover, it also encourages stores to
keep a wider range of goods on hand.
Investments in 2012
In 2012 Bimeks spent TL 5,948,000 on tangible fixed assets and TL 291,000 on intangible assets. In 2011 such
investments amounted to TL 11,337,000 and TL 6,217,000 respectively.
Bimeks will continue, in line with its mission, to undertake investments and to create and improve enjoyable and

FUTURE EXPECTATIONS AND GOALS
Economics and demography: The cornerstones of our future expectations and goals
The last few years have been marked both by uncertainties in global financial markets and by a worsening sovereign
debt crisis in Europe.
While most developed countries have been struggling with their national economies and banking systems since 2008,
many developing countries have largely undertaken and completed substantial economic reforms that have made
them the new engines of global economic growth. As an example of strong and sustainable growth potential, Turkey is
a star attraction in this new economic landscape.
Turkey: Economic facts and figures
• Turkey has registered growth for twelve consecutive quarters; it ranks second in the world in terms of GDP growth.
• Per capita disposable income is rising.
• Household expenditures on consumer electronics are increasing.
Bimeks 2012 Annual Report
27
Turkey: Demographic facts and figures
• Second largest population in Europe (76 million)
• Fastest population growth in Europe, Middle East, and Africa
• 50% of population under 30 years of age
• Steadily increasing urbanization
The Turkish consumer electronics sector in which Bimeks operates continues to grow at double-digit rates. Given
Turkey’s youthful population, the growth in disposable income, and currently low rates of product penetration, the
trend is likely to continue in the year ahead as well.
Since 2009, technology retailers have been grabbing a steadily bigger share of the business of consumer electronics
stores. In 2011 the sector as a whole saw its sales increase by 17%; among technology retailers, sales grew by 37%,
more than twice that rate.
Bimeks 2012 Annual Report

A growth strategy focused on effectively tapping economic and demographic potential
Bimeks focuses on creating increasingly more value for all of its stakeholders by making the best possible use of the
growth opportunities offered by Turkey’s economic and demographic features. While the company has always given
and continues to give great importance to expanding the national reach of its physical sales network, in the last few
years it has also been concentrating on and investing in web-based sales opportunities. Bimeks has been performing
extremely well in the web channel ever since establishing its online retailing presence in 2009. In the three years since
then, the company’s online sales have made a bigger contribution to its total sales than is the case with any other estore in the sector.
Continuing to conduct its Franchising Business Partner program, Bimeks plans to open stores in Erzurum, Giresun,
Kars, Muş, Siirt, Tokat, and Zonguldak in 2013.
Bimeks has always made it a principle to think and plan on a long-term basis and it will continue to grow profitably in
2013 as well. We are committed to further strengthening our market position and profitability in 2013 by effectively
deploying our customer-focused philosophy and our competent human resources while continuing to undertake our
investments. Bimeks intends to rank among the top two players in its sector by 2015 and it is working steadily towards
realizing that goal. Part of its approach, as was publicly disclosed in August 2012, involves acquisitions that will
accompany organic growth. Bimeks has entered into an agreement with a investment bank for this purpose.
Depending on the market opportunities that present themselves in the period ahead, it is possible that Bimeks may
even surpass its growth targets.
Bimeks 2012 Annual Report

In the near term, Bimeks plans to open 20-25 stores with a total sales area of 10,000 m2 in 15 new cities every year so
as to have a network of 150 stores and a presence in all of Turkey’s provinces by the end of 2015.

RISK MANAGEMENT AT BİMEKS
In accordance with its risk management operations, Bimeks closely monitors the risks, as set out below, which could
affect the sector and the Company’s operations. At Bimeks, all risk management activities are undertaken by the
Determination of Risk Committee, which operates under the Board of Directors, ensuring necessary coordination
within the Company.
Interest Rate Risk
The Company may be exposed to interest rate risk through the impact of changes in interest rates on its interest
bearing assets and liabilities. Such an interest rate risk is managed through natural measures by balancing interest rate
sensitive assets and liabilities. The Company’s interest rate risk is comprised of short term and long term financial
borrowing, and rediscount of credit card receivables which are transferred to the accounts the next day. An increase in
credit card rediscount rates could lead to an increase in financial expenses.
Liquidity Risk
Cautious liquidity risk management consists of ensuring there is a sufficient amount of cash and securities, enabling
funding through sufficient credit resources and the ability to close short positions. Due to the dynamic nature of the
business environment, the Company aims to maintain flexible funding by keeping credit channels ready.
FX Risk
The Company may be exposed to FX risk (due to changes in exchange rates) as FX denominated assets and liabilities
are accounted for by converting them into TL terms. Such FX risk is monitored through the analysis of FX position.
Furthermore, the Company has started to trade FX contracts transactions in the Derivatives Market (VOB) since the
last quarter of 2011 in a bid to limit the FX risk.
Bimeks 2012 Annual Report
38
Pricing Risk
Rapid advancements in technology and a short renewal duration may often lead to price cuts for the products sold by
the company. While managing the capital, the Company’s objective is to ensure a continuation of the operations
through a sustainable and appropriate capital structure which provides a sound return to shareholders and reduces
capital costs. The Company may change the sum of dividends distributed to shareholders, return capital to
shareholders, issue new shares and dispose of assets to reduce indebtedness, either to protect or to rearrange the
capital structure. In line with other players in the sector, the Company monitors its capital by employing the financial
liabilities/ shareholders’ equity ratio. One of the Company’s objectives is to maintain this ratio below 1, and the
Company sets its periodic strategies by evaluating its requirements and market conditions.
Competition Risk
With the entry of new players into the market, the threat posed by market competition on the sustainability of the
Company’s market share has increased. However, no further new entrants are expected in the market in the coming
period, as all recognised international players are already present in the Turkish market.
Profit Margin Risk
Since Bimeks operates in a low margin business, cost management is vital for its operations. Sustaining the gross profit
margin at a certain level on a regular basis is a challenging task due to the fierce competition in the market. On the
back of raid advancements in technology and the short renewal duration, products sold by the company may often
face subsequent price cuts.

SUMMARY MANAGEMENT REPORT PRESENTED TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Esteemed Shareholders,
I would like to welcome you all to the 2012 Annual General Meeting of Bimeks.
We would like to respectfully greet our shareholders, their representatives and our guests who have dignified our
meeting where we will present the Management and Auditors Reports and Profit/Loss accounts regarding the 2012
fiscal period for your examination and approval.
The start of the year 2012 was marked by pessimistic expectations about the world economy. Instability in Europe and
concerns in the US led to a slowdown and turmoil in the global economy as growth in developed and emerging
economies slowed to 1.3% and 5.3% respectively.
The weak recovery in economies resulted in a further easing in central banks’ monetary policies. While the Federal
Reserve in the US and Japan’s central bank maintained their quantitative easing operations, the European Central
Bank cut the policy rate in addition to extending long term liquidity support. Hence, the expansionary liquidity
conditions continued in 2012, setting the general theme for the global economy in the post global financial crisis era.
In such an environment, the controlled slowdown needed by the Turkish economy has been successfully materialized
with sound and consistent policies. Backed by more positive dynamics in terms of the banking system and fiscal policy,
the Turkish economy has presented a better outlook when compared to the global picture.
Under these circumstances, the Turkish consumer electronics sector grew by 17% when compared to the previous
year, with the size of the sector expanding from TL 21.4 billion in 2011 to TL 25.1 billion in 2012.
Looking at the sales performance of Bimeks, retail sales turnover grew by 28% from TL 371 million in 2011 to TL 473
million in 2012. The Company achieved a rate of growth some 11 percentage points in excess of the rate of growth
attained in the sector.
The Company’s current assets grew by 55% to TL 255 million in 2012, with total assets up by 34% to reach TL 339
million, while shareholders’ equity increased by 23% to TL 115 million.
At the end of 2012, Bimeks was operating through 69 stores in 42 cities, by providing services with a workforce of
more than 700, including employees under the payroll of franchising business partners.
Esteemed Stakeholders,
We hereby present our Annual Report for the 2012 fiscal year, and attach the balance sheet and profit/loss accounts
for your examination and approval.
We would like to extend our gratitude to our clients who have been unwavering in their trust, our employees for their
superior and devoted contribution to our success, which we appreciate above all else, and once again respectfully pay
tribute to our shareholders and their representatives who have dignified our Annual General Meeting.

e)
The Right to Dividends:
The Company’s profit is determined and distributed in accordance with the Turkish Commercial Code, Capital Market
Legislation and general accounting principles. There is no privilege regarding distribution of profits.
According to the Article 16 of the Company’s Articles of Association;
The amounts to be paid and allocated, such as general expenses and depreciation expenses, along with compulsory
taxes that are required to be paid by the legal entity of the company, are deducted from year-end revenues. The
remaining net profit (if any) that stated in the annual financial statements, is then deducted from the previous year’s
losses (if any).
The remaining amount shall be distributed as follows:
First Issue Legal Reserve:
a) 5% is allocated as legal reserves.
Primary Dividend:
b) The amount of donations (if any) is added to the remaining amount, and the primary dividend is allocated from this
amount in accordance with the percentages and amounts set out by the Capital Markets Board.
c) After the allocations set out above, the General Assembly reserves the right to decide on the distribution of the
profit among Board members, officers, employees and workers, usufruct shareholders, privileged shareholders,
foundations formed for various aims, and similar individuals and corporations.
Second Dividend:
d) The General Assembly is authorized to decide on the remaining amount which is calculated by deducting the
amounts set out in (a), (b), and (c) from the net profit, whether to partially or fully distribute as a second dividend or
to allocate the amount as extraordinary reserves.
Second Issue Legal Reserve:
e) A total of 5% of the paid-in capital is deducted from the amount which is set for distribution to shareholders and
other profit participants, and 10% of the remainder is allocated as a second issue legal reserve in accordance with
Article 466 of the Turkish Commercial Code, Paragraph 2 Clause 3.
No decision may be taken to allocate further reserves, to transfer profit to the following year, to distribute profit to
privileged shareholders, participating, founder and ordinary usufruct shareholders, Board members, officers,
employees or workers, foundations formed for various aims, or similar individuals and corporations unless legal
reserves are allocated in accordance with the applicable legislation, unless the primary dividend set out in the Articles
of Association for shareholders is distributed, and unless the dividend set out for non-voting shareholders is
distributed in the form of cash or bonus shares.
Without practising the principle of per diem deduction, the dividend is distributed to all of the existing shareholders by
the end of the fiscal period, regardless of the issue and acquisition date of these shares.
B. Advance Dividend
The Board of Directors may distribute a dividend advance, to be limited only to the related year, on the condition that
it is authorized by the General Assembly and is in compliance with Article 15 of the Capital Markets Law and the
regulations of the Capital Markets Board. Authorization for the distribution of an advance dividend, provided by the
General Assembly to the Board of Directors, is limited to the year that the authorization is provided. Unless the
dividend advance pertaining to the previous year is fully offset, no decision may be taken regarding an additional
advance dividend or the distribution of dividends.
C. Date and Form of Profit Distribution
The primary dividend is required to be distributed in accordance with the law and the articles of association following
the decision taken on the distribution of the profit, and the distribution of the dividend as decided by the General
Assembly. The General Assembly will decide on the date and the form of the profit distribution.
With respect to the distribution of the 2011 fiscal year profit, the Board of Directors’ suggestion that there should be
no distribution of the 2011 profit on the grounds that there were accumulated losses from previous years and that the
2011 profit should not be distributed, but instead be used to offset previous losses, was accepted unanimously by a
decision taken in the Annual General Meeting dated 30 March, 2012. This, together with the minutes of the Annual
Bimeks 2012 Annual Report

which bear privileges on voting rights and the appointment of Board of Directors and the Audit Board – the shares are
first to be offered to other A Type shareholders, to be sold over market value. In the event that they are not sold to

performance, in line with the performance of the company, principles of long term sustainability are considered, as
well as the financial aspect.
REMUNERATION POLICY FOR MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Company determines pay separately for the Chairman, Vice Chairman and Board Members in line with market
conditions and the company’s strategy and policies by considering board members’ duties and responsibilities in the
company. These pay amounts are submitted to the approval of shareholders in the relevant year’s Annual General
Meeting.
There are additional payments for board members who are in execution in the context of policy, which is determined
for senior level managers.
Stock options or payment schemes based on the company’s performance are not used in determining the wages of
independent board members. It is important that their remuneration is determined in a manner which protects their
independence.
Payment is made to board members according to prorate principle by considering their tenure as of their appointment
and withdrawal dates. Costs incurred by board members in association with their contributions to the company (such
transportation, telephone and insurance) may be reimbursed by the company.
Pay and other benefits provided to board members and senior level managers are announced to the public through
the annual report. They work to the principle of announcing this on an individual basis; if this is not carried out, then
at least the difference between board of directors and senior level managers would be included.

FINANCIAL ANALYSIS AND EVALUATION BY BİMEKS MANAGEMENT
Bimeks has been gradually strengthening its cash position over the last 3 years. Considering that the multiplier effect
of the liquid assets is high in the consumer electronics business, this provides considerable advantages in purchasing
and lump sum payments.
A TL 30,500,000 bond was issued by Bimeks in 2010, which was redeemed and paid for in July 2012 at the end of its 2year maturity. Bimeks subsequently issued a new bond to the amount TL 50,000,000 in September 2012, again with a
2-year maturity through private placement, which was addressed to qualified investors.
The strengthening in the Company’s liquidity position continued in 2012 on the back of increasing sales turnover, and
capital increases through a rights issue and a bond issue. By the end of the period, the Company’s net debt position
was cut to TL 11.5 million, marking a decline of approximately TL 21 million when compared to a year ago.
In 2012, sales increased by 25%, at a time when GDP expanded by an estimated 3%.
Operating expenses declined by 0.7% when compared to the previous year, thanks to the efficient utilization of
resources and effective cost management.
However, as a result of the declining gross profit margin, EBITDA came in at TL 30.7 million, implying a 6.2% margin.

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AT
31 DECEMBER 2012
TOGETHER WITH AUDITOR’S REPORT
INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT
Bimeks Bilgi İşlem ve Dış Ticaret A.Ş.
To the Shareholders and Board of Directors of
1. We have audited the accompanying statement of consolidated financial position of Bimeks Bilgi İşlem ve
Dış Ticaret A.Ş (the “Group”) as at 31 December 2012, and the statements of comprehensive income,
changes in equity and cash flows for the year then ended and a summary of significant accounting
policies and other explanatory notes published by Capital Market Board (“CMB”).
Management’s responsibility for the financial statements
2. Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these consolidated financial
statements in accordance with financial reporting standards published by Capital Market Board. This
responsibility includes: designing, implementing and maintaining internal control relevant to the
preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether
due to fraud or error, selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies; and making accounting
estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances.
Auditor’s responsibility
3. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards published by CMB. Those standards
require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable
assurance whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in
the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the
assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error.
In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation
and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in
the circumstances but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s
internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the
reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management as well as evaluating the overall
presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for
our audit opinion.
Conclusion
4. In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the
consolidated financial position of Bimeks Bilgi İşlem ve Dış Ticaret A.Ş. as of 31 December 2012, and of
its consolidated financial performance and its consolidated cash flows for the year then ended in
accordance with the financial reporting standards accepted by the CMB.

NOTE 2 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
2.1 Principles of Presentation
The communiqué of the Capital Market Board (CMB) Serie XI, nr. 29 has become effective for accounting periods beginning
from 01 January 2008 and consequently also covers the interim reporting periods beginning from 01 January 2008. The said
Communiqué promulgates that entities have to prepare their financial statements in accordance with the International
Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in the format as accepted by the European Union (EU). The format of IFRS as
accepted by EU and the differences with the format of the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC) have to be
published by the Turkish Accounting Standards Committee. Until this is published, the IFRS format of IASC will be
applicable. Subject to this, the standards published by the Turkish Accounting Standards Committee will be taken as the basis
as long as these do not conflict with IFRS of IASC..
The Capital Market Board issued a statement dated 17 March 2005, numbered 11/367 to discontinue the presentation of
financial statements in accordance with IAS 29 (Financial Reporting in Hyperinflationary Economies) during the reporting
periods in 2005, indicating that in the light of objective criteria the economy ceased to be hyperinflationary and factors
characterizing the existence of hyperinflation were eliminated to a large extent. Based on this resolution the financial
statements as of 31.12.2012 and 31.12.2011 have not been restated.
These financial statements and the notes attached thereto have been presented in accordance with the format recommended
by the announcement of the CMB dated 14 April 2008 including the disclosure of information necessitated by CMB which
is also applied to previous year’s statements.
2.2 Going Concern
Group prepared consolidated financial statements in accordance with the going concern assumption.

accordance with the Turkish Commercial Code, tax legislation and the Uniform Chart of Accounts issued by the Ministry of
Finance. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on the basis of the Company’s statutory records with
adjustments and reclassifications for the purpose of fair presentation in accordance with Capital Market Board.
2.4 Comparable financial information and reclassification of prior period financial statements
The financial positions with the accompanying notes as of 31.12.2012 and 31.12.2011 and statement of income, cash flow
and changes in equity with the accompanying notes for the year ended 31.12.2012 and 31.12.2011 are presented as

2.5. Basis of consolidation
The consolidated financial statements incorporate the financial statements of Bimeks Bilgi İşlem ve Dış Ticaret A.Ş. and
entities controlled by the Company. Control is achieved where the Company has the power to govern the financial and

Minority interests in the net assets of consolidated subsidiaries are identified separately from Group’s equity therein. Minority
interests consist of the amount of those interests at the date of the original business combination and the minority’s share of
changes in equity since the date of the combination. Losses applicable to the minority in excess of the minority’s interest in
the subsidiary’s equity are allocated against the interests of Group except to the extent that the minority has a binding
obligation and is able to make an additional investment to cover the losses.
The Company has always exercised effective control over the management of each of the companies included in the group
consolidation.
As of financial position dates, the ownership and economic interest of Bimeks Bilgi İşlem ve Dış Ticaret A.Ş. in Serbim

2.7 Critical accounting estimates, assumptions and judgments
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires management to make estimates and assumptions
that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the
financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could
differ from these estimates. These estimates are reviewed periodically, and as adjustments become necessary, they are
reported in earnings in the periods in which they become known.
The key assumption concerning the future and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the balance sheet date and the
significant judgments are set out below:

Allowance for doubtful debts reflect the amount set aside for the losses in the future related to receivables which
exist the balance sheet date but which, in the opinion of the management carry the risk of collection due to current
economic conditions. When evaluating whether receivables has suffered a loss in value the past performance of the
debtors, they are credibility in the market and their performance between the balance sheet date and report date
together with changed circumstances are taken in the considerations. In addition, the collaterals existing as balance
sheet date together with new collaterals obtained between the balance date and report date are also taken in the
consideration. The allowance for doubtful receivables as of the balance sheet dates are explained under note 7.

As for the diminution in value of stocks, all stocks are subjected to review and their usage possibility ascertained on
basis of the opinion of the technical personnel; provisions are set aside for items expected not to have usage
possibility. Calculation of net realizable values of stocks is based on selling prices as disclosed by selling price lists
after deduction for average discounts given during the year and selling expenses to be incurred for the realization of
stocks. If the net realizable value of any stock falls under its cost price appropriate provisions are therefore set aside
(note 9).

Property, plant and equipment and intangible assets held for use in the production or supply of goods or services, or
for administrative purposes, are stated in the balance sheet at cost, less any subsequent accumulated depreciation
and subsequent accumulated impairment losses. The Group estimates that the useful lives of tangible and intangible
assets. Depreciation is charged using the straight-line basis over the useful lives, which depend on the best
estimation of the management. Useful lives of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets are reviewed at
each balance sheet dates and make changes if necessary (note 2.8).

2.8. Summary of significant accounting policies
The significant accounting policies followed in the preparation of the financial statements are summarized below:
Revenue recognition
Revenue is recognized to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Company and the revenue
can be reliably measured. Revenue is shown net of value added and sales taxes, discounts and returns and credit card
commissions. Revenue from the rendering of services is recognized by reference to the stage of completion of the transaction
when the following conditions are met:
 the amount of revenue can be measured reliably,
 the flow of economic benefits to the entity is probable,
 the stage of completion at the period end can be measured reliably and
the costs incurred to date can be measured reliably.
Revenue for services provided initially is measured at the fair value of the consideration receivable. Expenses is included in
operating expenses at cost unless the expense was permitted or required to be included in the financial statements on another
basis. Cost is the fair value of the consideration given for the materials or services used in the production of goods or
provision of services. Cost of sales is presented as a separate line item on the face of the income statement for the functional
analysis of expenditures is chosen for the format of the income statement.
Other revenues earned by the Group are recognized on the following bases:
Rental income – on an accrual basis.
Interest income – on an effective yield basis.
Trade receivables / payables
Trade receivables are measured at initial recognition at fair value, and are subsequently measured at amortized cost using the
effective interest rate method to set an allowance for unearned interest. Appropriate allowances for estimated irrecoverable
amounts are recognized in profit or loss when there is objective evidence that the asset is impaired. The allowance recognized
is measured as the difference between the asset’s carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows
discounted at the effective interest rate computed at initial recognition. Trade payables are initially measured at fair value, and
are subsequently measured at amortized cost, using the effective interest rate method to set an allowance for unearned interest.
Inventories
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Cost is calculated by using the weighted average method.
Net realizable value represents the estimated selling price less all estimated costs to completion and costs to be incurred in
marketing, selling and distribution. Costs comprise direct materials and, where applicable, direct labour costs and those
overheads that have been incurred in bringing the inventories to their present location and condition but excludes borrowing
cost.
Property, plant and equipment
Property, plant and equipment are carried at cost less accumulated depreciation and depreciation is provided on a straight-line
basis based on the approximate economic useful lives.
The useful lives of property, plant and equipment are as follows:
Year
Buildings
Leasehold improvements
Machinery and equipment
Motor vehicles
Furniture and fixtures

FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2012
(All amounts in Turkish Lira (“TL”) unless indicated otherwise.)
No depreciation is provided on land due to its indefinite lifetime.
The carrying values of property, plant and equipment are reviewed for impairment when events or changes in circumstances
indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable. If any such indication exists and where the carrying values exceed the
estimated recoverable amount, the assets or cash-generating units are written down to their recoverable amount. The
recoverable amount of property, plant and equipment is the greater of net selling price and value in use. In assessing value in
use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects current
market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset. For an asset that does not generate largely
independent cash inflows, the recoverable amount is determined for the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs.
Property, plant and equipment in the course of construction for production, rental or administrative purposes, or for purposes
not yet determined, are carried at cost, less any identified impairment loss. Cost includes professional fees and, for qualifying
assets, borrowing costs capitalized in accordance with the Company’s accounting policy. Depreciation of these assets, on the
same basis as other property assets, commences when the assets are ready for their intended use.
Assets held under finance leases are depreciated over their expected useful lives on the same basis as owned assets or, where
shorter, the term of the relevant lease. The gain or loss arising on the disposal or retirement of an asset is determined as the
difference between the sales proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset and is recognized in income.
As of 31.12.2012, the buildings were revalued by on independent valuer to reach their fair value (note 11). The revaluation
surplus, unearned income, was credited to “Revaluation fund” in equity.
Intangible assets
Intangible assets comprise capitalized development expenses, information systems, computer software and other
determinable rights, intangible assets excluding development expenses.
Research and development costs
Research costs are expensed as and when they are incurred. Development costs are capitalized as intangible fixed assets in
accordance with IAS 38 where it is possible to technically complete the asset so that it is ready for use or presentation for
sale, where there is the intention to complete the asset and present it for use or for sale, where it is known as to how the asset
will lead to possible economic benefits in the future, where sufficient technical, financial and other resources exist to complete
the development phase and where it is possible to reliably measure the expenditure incurred in connection with the asset
during its development phase.
In order to ascertain the fair value of the development costs capitalized as above the management of the Group subjects these
to valuation by a firm of expert valuers which has been authorized by the Capital Market Board; in the case where the asset
value as ascertained by the expert valuers is above the book value the positive difference is added to the value of the
intangible asset with a corresponding credit to the Revaluation Fund Account in shareholders’ equity; and in the case of a
negative difference it is deducted from the value of the asset with a corresponding debit to the Revaluation Fund Account; if
sufficient credit balance does not exist in the Revaluation Fund Account, the negative difference is expensed as impairment
loss.
Intangible assets are initially recorded at cost and in case of revaluation at revalued cost less amortization and impairment
losses to date. Amortisation begins at the moment the asset is completed and presented as ready for use. Amortisation is based
on the sales amount expected in future years, however, the amortization period may not exceed ten years.
Investment property
Buildings held for rental yields or for capital appreciation or both, rather than for use in the production or supply of goods or
services or for administrative purposes or sale in the ordinary course of business are classified as “investment property”.
Investment properties are carried at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses. Investment
properties are depreciated with the straight-line depreciation method over their useful lives.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2012
(All amounts in Turkish Lira (“TL”) unless indicated otherwise.)
Impairment
The carrying amounts of the Group’s assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date to determine whether any indication of
impairment exists. If any such indication exists, the asset’s recoverable amount is estimated and an impairment loss is
recognised in the income statement whenever the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its recoverable amount.
Foreign currency translations and transactions
Transactions are recorded in Turkish Lira, which is the Company’s functional currency. Transactions in foreign currencies
during the periods have been translated at the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of these transactions. Balance sheet items
denominated in foreign currencies have been translated at the exchange rates prevailing at the balance sheet dates. Exchange
gains or losses arising from settlement and translation of foreign currency items have been included in the financing income
or expense accounts as appropriate.
Derivative financial instruments
The Company holds derivative financial instruments which mainly consist of interest rate swap instruments and currency
forward contracts.
Derivatives are recognized initially at fair value; attributable transaction costs are recognised in statement of consolidated
income when incurred. Subsequent to initial recognition, derivatives are measured at fair value, and changes in the fair value
of such derivatives are recognised in the statement of consolidated income as part of finance income and costs.
Hedges of exposures to variability in cash flows that are attributable to a particular risk associated with a recognised asset or
liability or a highly probable forecast transaction and could affect profit and loss are designated as cash flow hedges by the
Company.
Changes in the fair value of derivatives, designated as cash flow hedges and qualified as effective, are recognised in equity as
“hedging reserves”. Where the forecasted transaction or firm commitment results in the recognition of an asset or of a
liability, the gains and losses previously recognised under equity are transferred from equity and included in the initial
measurement of the cost of the asset or liability. Otherwise, amounts recognised under equity are transferred to the
consolidated income statement in the period in which the hedged firm commitment or forecasted transaction affects the
consolidated income statement.
If the forecast transaction or firm commitment is no longer expected to occur, the cumulative gain or losses previously
recognised in equity are transferred to the income statement. If the hedging instrument expires or is sold, terminated or
exercised without replacement or rollover, or if its designation as a hedge is revoked, any cumulative gain or loss previously
recognised in other comprehensive income remains in other comprehensive income until the forecast transaction or firm
commitment affects profit or loss.
Earnings per share
The calculation of the basic and diluted earnings per share is based on net profit for the related period divided by the weighted
average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the year.
Provisions
Provisions are recognized when the Group has a present obligation (legal or constructive) as a result of a past event, it is
probable that an outflow of resources embodying economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation and a reliable
estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation. Where the Group expects a provision to be reimbursed, for example
under an insurance contract, the reimbursement is recognized as a separate asset but only when the reimbursement is virtually
certain.
Commitments and contingencies
Transactions that may give rise to contingencies and commitments are those where the outcome and the performance of
which will be ultimately confirmed only on the occurrence or non-occurrence of certain future events, unless the expected
performance is not very likely. Accordingly, contingent losses are recognised in the financial statements if a reasonable
estimate of the amount of the resulting loss can be made. Contingent gains are reflected only if it is probable that the gain will
be realized.

(All amounts in Turkish Lira (“TL”) unless indicated otherwise.)
Leases
Finance Lease
Leases in terms of which the Company assumes substantially all of the risks and rewards of ownership are classified as
finance leases. Assets held under finance leases are recognized as assets of the Company at their fair value at the date of
acquisition. The corresponding liability to the Company is included in the balance sheet as a finance lease obligation. Finance
costs, which represent the difference between the total leasing commitments and the fair value of the assets acquired, are
charged to the income statement over the term of the relevant lease so as to produce a constant periodic rate of interest on the
remaining balance of the liability for each accounting period. Capitalized leased assets are depreciated in accordance with the
depreciation policy noted above.
Operating lease
Leases of assets under which all the risks and rewards of ownership are effectively retained by the lesser are classified as
operating leases. Lease payments on operating lease are recognized as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term.
Related parties
For the purpose of the accompanying financial statements, the shareholders of the Company, its directors and the companies
identified by the Company as being controlled by/affiliated with them are considered and referred to as related parties and
Bimeks Group Companies and their investments and subsidiaries.
Employee termination benefits
Under the provision of Turkish Labour Law, employers are required to make certain lump-sum payments to employees
whose employment ceases due to retirement or due to reasons other than misconduct or resignation. Such payments are
determined on basis of an agreed formula and are subject to certain upper limit (ceiling) which is revised twice a year.
Severance pay provision is discounted to present value at the balance sheet date by using average market yield, expected
inflation rates and an appropriate discount rate.
Income taxes
Tax expense (income) is the aggregate amount included in the determination of net profit or loss for the period in respect of
current and deferred tax.
Deferred income tax is provided, using the liability method, on all temporary differences at the balance sheet date between the
tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts for financial reporting purposes. Deferred income tax liabilities
are recognized for all taxable temporary differences.
The carrying amount of deferred income tax assets is reviewed at each balance sheet date and reduced to the extent that it is no
longer probable that sufficient taxable profit will be available to allow all or part of the deferred income tax asset to be utilized.
Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply to the period when the asset
is realized or the liability is settled, based on tax rates (and tax laws) that have been enacted or substantively enacted at the
balance sheet date.
Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognized for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognized to

(All amounts in Turkish Lira (“TL”) unless indicated otherwise.)
Financial assets
Financial assets other than hedging instruments are divided into the following categories:
• available-for-sale financial assets
• held-to-maturity investments.
Financial assets are assigned to the different categories on initial recognition, depending on the characteristics of the
instrument and its purpose. A financial instrument's category is relevant for the way it is measured and whether any resulting
income and expenses is recognized in profit or loss or directly in equity.
Generally, the Group recognizes all financial assets using settlement day accounting. An assessment of whether a financial
asset is impaired is made at least at each reporting date. All income and expense relating to financial assets are recognized in
the income statement line item "finance costs" or "finance income", respectively.
Available-for-sale financial assets are non-derivative financial assets that do not qualify for inclusion in any of the other
categories of financial assets. The Group’s available-for-sale financial assets include unconsolidated investments.
Unconsolidated investments which are not quoted at any stock exchange are reported at cost less any impairment charges, as
its fair value can currently not be reliably estimated.
Gains and losses arising from financial instruments classified as available-for-sale are only recognized in profit or loss when
they are sold or when the investment is impaired. In the case of impairment, any loss previously recognized in equity is
transferred to the income statement. Losses recognized in the income statement on equity instruments are not reversed
through the income statement but charged to equity. Losses recognized in prior period consolidated income statements
resulting from the impairment of debt securities are reversed through the income statement, if the subsequent increase can be
objectively related to an event occurring after the impairment loss was recognized in profit or loss.
Held-to-maturity investments are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments and fixed maturity.
Investments are classified as held-to-maturity if it is the intention of the Group's management to hold them until maturity. The
Group currently holds time deposits that fall into this category.
Held-to-maturity investments are subsequently measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method. In addition, if
there is objective evidence that the investment has been impaired, the financial asset is measured at the present value of
estimated cash flows. Any changes to the carrying amount of the investment are recognized in profit or loss.
Reserve for own shares purchased at ISE (“Istanbul stock exchange”)
When a company purchases the Company’s share capital, the consideration paid, including any directly attributable
incremental costs (net of income taxes) is deducted from equity attributable to the Company’s equity holders and accounted
under heading “Reserve for own shares purchased at ISE”. Any gain / (loss), resulting from subsequently reissuing or disposal
of these shares, is credited to share premium account under equity.
Cash and cash equivalents
For the purpose of cash flow statement, cash and cash equivalents comprise cash in hand; deposits with banks and other
financial institutions with the original maturity of three months or less.
EBITDA (Earnings before interest, tax, debreciation and amortisation and employee termination benefits)
EBITDA (Earnings before interest, tax, debreciation and amortisation and employee termination benefits) was monitored by
the Management as perfomance measure of the Company. This measurement does not consider the effetcs of nonrecurring
income and expenses. EBITDA is not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidty under CMB
Financial Reporting Standards. The Management of the Company presented EBITDA in the notes to the financial statements
besides the requirements of reporting since it is used by certain readers in their analyses (note 28).

The provision is made in respect of all eligible employees, at a rate of 30 days gross pay for each year of service. The rate
of pay is that ruling at the respective balance sheet dates, subject to a maximum of TL 3.033,98 per year as of 31.12.2012
(31.12.2011 : TL 2.731,85 per year).
Turkish Accounting Standards No: 19 (“Employee Benefits”) requires actuarial valuation methods to be developed to
estimate the enterprise’s obligation under defined employee plans. Accordingly actuarial assumptions were used in the
calculation of the total liability as these actuarial assumptions apply to each individual company’s defined benefit plan and
legal framework in which those companies operate. The actuarial assumptions used in calculation of total liabilities are
described below:
The principal assumption is that the maximum liability for each year of service will increase in line with inflation. Thus,
the discount rate applied represents the expected real rate after adjusting for the anticipated effects of future inflation. An
expected inflation rate and appropriate discount rate should both be determined, the net of these being real discount rate.
This real discount rate should be used to discount future retirement payments to their present value at the balance sheet
date. Voluntary employment termination by employee results in the forfeiture of the benefit, this rate should be taken into
consideration and estimated since in this case the retirement pay provision will be left to the Company. As of 31.12.2012
the liability for employment termination benefits was calculated based on an annual real discount rate of 4,76%
(31.12.2011: an annual real discount rate of 4,05%) using estimated annual inflation rate of 5,0% and discount rate of
10%.
The movements in the reserve for employment termination benefits during the year are as follow:

NOTE 24 – TAXES ON INCOME
a) Current taxation
In Turkey, the corporation tax rate on the profits for the calendar year 2012 is 20%.
Taxable profits are calculated by modifying accounting income for certain exclusions and allowances for tax purposes
from the profit disclosed in the statutory income. No other taxes are paid unless profits are distributed.
In Turkey no taxes are withheld from undistributed profits, profits added to share capital (bonus shares) and dividends
paid to other resident companies. Other than those, profits distributed in dividend to individuals and non-resident
companies are subject to withholding at the rate of 15%.
In Turkey, the tax legislation does not permit a parent company and its affiliates to file a consolidated tax return.
Therefore, provision for taxation charge, as reflected in the accompanying consolidated financial information, has been
calculated on a separate-entity basis.
The exemption period granted on profits from the sale of investment shares and immovable property by Corporation Tax
Law transitory articles No. 28 and 29 expired on 31 December 2004. However, this exemption was re-enacted by Law
No. 5281 on permanent basis in effect from 1 January 2005. Accordingly, 75% of profits from the sale of investments
and immovable held for a minimum of two years will be tax exempt provided the sale proceeds are collected within two
years and 75% of the profit is added to share capital or is kept in a special reserve account for minimum five years.
Tax losses that are reported in the Corporation Tax in Turkey return may be carried forward and deducted from the
corporation tax base for a maximum of five consecutive years.
The Turkish Tax Procedural Law does not include a procedure for formally agreeing tax assessments. Tax returns must
be filed within three and half months of the year-end and may be subject to investigation, together with their underlying
accounting records, by the tax authorities at any stage during the following five years.
The cumulative tax position at end of the period is summarised below:
The taxation liabilities of foreign subsidiaries are calculated in accordance with the regulations of the respective country
where the subsidiary is situated, as follows:

The Group recognizes deferred tax assets and liabilities based upon temporary differences between its financial statements
as reported for CMB Financial Reporting Standards (communiqué XI, No: 29) purposes and its statutory tax financial
statements. These differences usually result in the recognition of revenue and expenses in different reporting periods for
CMB Financial Reporting Standards and tax purposes.
The composition of cumulative temporary differences and the related deferred tax assets/liabilities in respect of items for
which deferred tax has been provided at the balance sheet dates using the expected future tax rates were as follows:

Credit risk
The Group’s exposure to credit risk is limited to the carrying amount of financial assets recognized at the balance sheet
date.
Credit risk concerns the risk that a loss will be suffered by a party due to the reason that the other party to the transaction is

Liquidity risk
Liquidity risk arises from the fact that the Group may not receive financial instruments from its counterparties at the
expected time. This risk is managed by maintaining a balance between continuity of funding and flexibility through the
use of overdrafts, finance leases and other funds.

Capital Risk Management
The Company aims at the most productive use of the balance between debt and equity with a view to increasing its
profitability whilst at the same time concentrating on increasing the continuity of its operations.
The risks associated with each source of capital together with the cost of capital are evaluated by the management of the
Company. On basis of its evaluation, the management aims at balancing the capital structure of the Company through
procurement of new debt or repayment of existing debt as well as giving consideration to payment of dividends or raising
fresh capital through issue of new shares.

Fair value of financial instruments
Fair value is the amount at which a financial instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing
parties, other than in a forced sale or liquidation, and is best evidenced by a quoted market price.
The estimated fair values of financial instruments have been determined by the Company, using available market
information and appropriate valuation methodologies. However, judgment is necessarily required to interpret market data
to estimate the fair value. Accordingly, the estimates presented herein are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the
Company could realize in a current market exchange.
The following methods and assumptions are used in the estimation of the fair value of the financial instruments for which
it is practicable to estimate fair value:
Financial assets
The fair values of balances denominated in foreign currencies, which are translated at year-end exchange rates, are
considered to approximate carrying value.
Cash and cash equivalents presented in the cash flow statements include cash and bank deposits which have a maturity of
3 months or shorter.
The carrying values of the trade receivables net of provisions for uncollectible receivables are considered to approximate
their fair values.
The carrying value of the financial assets is considered to approximate their fair values.
Financial liabilities
The fair values of short-term bank loans and other monetary liabilities are considered to approximate their respective
carrying values due to their short-term nature.
Trade payables are considered to approximate their carrying values.
The fair values of long-term bank borrowings which are denominated in foreign currencies and translated at year-end
exchange rates are considered to approximate their carrying values.
