Considering the fact that a binding and a final agreement did not exist then, regarding the sale and transfer of our 50% stake at Aytemiz Akaryakıt Dağıtım A.Ş. (Aytemiz Akaryakıt), that a material disclosure regarding the issue could lead market participants to different opinions and evaluations and that a material disclosure in the current condition can damage our Company's justified interests, it had been resolved to postpone the announcement of the related process as per the Article-6 of the Capital Market Board's Communiqué on Material Events Disclosure no. II-15.1 ("Communiqué") and related provisions of Material Events Guide ("Guide").
Our Company's Board of Directors also decided the following at its meeting on April, 4 2023 :

3) Based on Sale Value calculated with the average of bid and ask exchange rates announced by the Central Bank of the Republic of Türkiye on the previous business day of this Board of Directors decision on 15:30, sale and transfer of our Company's stake at Aytemiz Akaryakıt is not classified as a "material transaction" as per the related provisions of the Capital Markets Board's "Communiqué on Material Transactions and Exit Right" no. II-23.3 and an "exit right" does not arise for our Company's shareholders due to the following:
Within the context of the abovementioned decision the ‘Share Transfer Agreement' has been signed between our Company and Buyer.
