MESSAGE FROM MUHARREM BALAT, MB HOLDING CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD

Hello;

In this career path which we have stepped in with the principle "Success is the Greatest Happiness", I would like to state that, as MB Holding, we have ventured into one of the most popular sectors in Turkey, that is tourism, with an international quality partnership following our ventures in the Construction, Energy, Construction Materials, Agriculture, Medical Textile sectors.  Another path we have taken within the sector is thermal and wellness tourism. Our investments in this sector continue at a fast pace as a matter of our principle to become a pioneer in every sector we operate in.

Our company, adopting a business life respecting the environment and people in accordance with our principles, continues to add value to the national economy at maximum capacity, to carry on with our responsibilities nationally and internationally in a manner of excellence as a sector pioneer.

The Binary System geothermal electricity plants within the Menderes Geothermal Elektrik A.S. built on the Salavatlı-Sultanhisar site is the only private sector plant in Turkey. In 2006, we inaugurated the 8.5 MWe Dora-1, and in 2010 the 11.5 MWe Dora-2 with the participation of Esteemed Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Egemen Bagis, Minister of European Union.  This year we are preparing to put the 34 NWe capacities Dora-3 into effect.  Our 2014 objective are the Dora-4 and Dora-5 projects.

We put the most modern greenhouse investment in Turkey into effect in 2011 as part of our integrated investments in geothermal. By collaborating with Holland, world leader in greenhousing, we took the first step for our investments in the agricultural sector.

With our geothermal energy plants managed with an environmentally-friednly principle, we save 25.000.000 USD and prevent 77.000 trees from being chopped down annually. Additionally, we prevent 75.000 tons of carbon emission annually.  In our greenhouses we save 160 tons of diesels in heating. As our plants grow, these numbers do grow, too. And we are happy to do something important in the name of the environment, or better for yesterday, today and tomorrow.

I would like to emphasize that MB Holding continues to develop, expand and grow. By all means we, as the MB Holding family, have come to this day thanks to the devotion of our employees. Underlying our success is our high quality human resources and rooted corporate culture. Thus we have continued on our path preserving our productivity and profitability. Our objective is to become a dynamic and global company of international standards with the power we attain from this union. We have to go through a number of processes to realize this objective. This process is about the systematic conglomeration of our work life and interpersonal relationships.  That is why we value both institutionalization and communication.

You plant a seed and hope that it will grow.  You have to take all necessary precautions and build a sturdy system for it to be able to grow. In the coming years, we, as MB Holding will succeed and continue to add value to the economies of every country we operate in.

Regards...
