Kök Ulaşım Taşımacılık A.Ş (“KÖK”) did not participate in the capital increase due to its decision to narrow down its operation fields.

Moreover, pursuant to shareholders agreement, the transaction with respect to the acquisition of 0.2% shareholding of KÖK by our Company with a nominal price, out of KÖK’s 2.9% remaining shareholding in TOGG after the capital increase has been completed.
