6 Movement and change have continued to mark developments in As the world started to recover from the negative effects of the global economic crisis, its aftershocks were still felt in Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, and several East European countries throughout the year and in parallel with the stagnation prevalent in the entire Euro zone. As a whole, the world economy embarked on a new growth trend in 2010, albeit a slow and arduous one. Turkey has been one of the best performing economies in the restructuring process that has accompanied this trend. Closing the year with a 9% growth rate, the Turkish economy gave signs of a stable growth trend of about 5% for 2011 and beyond. However, this rapid growth, which affected the entire Turkish economy, failed to create a comparably positive impact on the oil industry where growth rates remained well below the national average for most of Message from the Board and Management Petrol Ofisi s overall performance was strong in The Company maintained its market leadership position not only in terms of its retail network that spans over nearly 2,400 filling stations in every corner of the country but also across a nation-wide supply storage and supply chain that provides efficient and cost effective services for all types of fuels. Petrol Ofisi also retained its leadership in almost every single product segment. Among those, its market leadership position in the industry s most significant growth segment - the ultra-low-sulphurdiesel segment - as well as its newly acquired leadership in the Turkish lubricants market, have been especially significant. Petrol Ofisi also managed its working capital effectively, thanks to its focused efforts on improving efficiency and controlling costs, and continued to create value for its shareholders, investors, business associates, employees and the national economy at large. But beyond Turkey, a social and political transformation process emerged in the Middle East and North Africa region during the first months of 2011, which may prove to have long-term and wide reaching implications. Fluctuations in oil supply and accompanying increases in oil prices have been among the most immediate effects. Another important - though more long-term trend - has been a shift in the momentum of the global economy where the centre of gravity has been steadily moving from West to East as well as moving from North to South in terms of economic growth, capital accumulation and production capacity. Turkey, both geographically and economically, is situated right in the middle of this major movement. This global shift will redefine political, social and economic life also in Turkey s entire wider geography.
7 These changes over the past few years have also affected Turkey s position in the international policy arena where the country is becoming an increasingly prominent role model for the entire region. Turkish as well as global companies operating in Turkey have, in parallel with these developments, started to focus much more intensively on their operations in this region. Clearly, Turkey s new position in this economic and socio-political landscape is creating a host of new opportunities and potentials - as well as new responsibilities and challenges - for all major players in the Turkish economy, not least, of course, Petrol Ofisi. In the final months of 2010, Petrol Ofisi became a member of the OMV Group, through the Group s acquisition of additional shares that have brought its interest in Petrol Ofisi to a total of 96.98%. OMV is the leading energy company in the European growth belt, and under its 3plus strategy, the Group combines the strengths of its Exploration & Production (E&P), Refining & Marketing (R&M) and Gas and Power (G&P) business units in order to ensure that it provides the best possible supply service to its three core markets of Central and Eastern Europe, South-eastern Europe and Turkey. OMV uses the synergies that result from the combination of these strengths to extend its supply chain from oil and gas through to electricity and eventually renewable energy. As part of OMV and the Group s 3plus strategy, Petrol Ofisi s operation will gain a new significance above and beyond that which it already enjoys due to its leadership of the Turkish fuel distribution and lubricants market, moving the Company and the Petrol Ofisi brand toward a new future and new horizons. But whatever the exciting new opportunities the future may hold, Petrol Ofisi will continue to strive every day and with every product and service to deserve the trust and loyalty of its employees, dealers and customers - the only path there is to sustain and strengthen our well-earned leadership position.

10 PETROL OFİSİ and the OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT in 2010
11 10 P E T R O L O F İ S İ A N N U A L R E P O R T The World Economy In 2010, Equally striking the world as the rapid economy turnaround was grew by the divergence 5%, thus in growth recovering rates between from the advanced and previous developing year s economies. recession Uneven growth of -0.6%, figures clearly the first display this such global two-speed contraction pattern where in the postwar period. economies developing grew by an average of 7%, while advanced economies - despite last year s dramatic decline - remained at an average of 3%. Among developing economies, Asia, with 9% growth, was clearly in the lead.
12 PETROL OFİSİ and the OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT ın Overall Concerns about growth the European remained Union s banking slow in system and the advanced its high public economies. debts deepened in the spring of Bailout mechanisms and packages were developed by the EU to help Greece and other EU members avert financial meltdown. Greece and Ireland both received sizeable EU/IMF financial aid packages while concerns continued to deepen about the economies of other peripheral EU members such as Portugal and Spain. The US economy, on the other hand, displayed relatively strong growth in the final quarter of the year. However, doubts about the durability of consumer confidence seem to represent the greatest obstacle to sustained improvement in the near future. Inflation rates throughout advanced economies remained low in this period, and even carried a continued risk of deflation. Developing While economies developing displayed economies a very grew at a much different faster pace picture than advanced in economies, concerns about inflationary risks, especially in the highgrowth Asian economies that are heavily impacted by rising food and petrol prices, deepened towards year-end. Tight fiscal policies to curb relatively high inflation, coupled with very positive economic growth rates, led to a vast increase of capital flow into these economies. This in turn triggered harsh foreign currency interventions in several developing economies. In fact, Brazil and capital South Korea, controls and among others, currency stepped up wars were attempts to very much on control their the agenda currencies for much of through large-sale currency purchases and various capital taxes. Public debt and banking industry problems that continue to plague the EU, are likely the most serious potential challenges facing the world economy in Even though problems seemed to have abated in the short term, concerns over the overall health of Europe s banking industry, growth rates, and the EU s ability to act in a coordinated fashion had not dissipated completely by the end of the year.
13 12 P E T R O L O F İ S İ A N N U A L R E P O R T The Turkish Economy The Turkish The surge of economy capital flow performed into developing well beyond economies expectations coupled with in growthoriented monetary and fiscal policies, as well as a strong local banking industry, all combined to produce a 9% growth rate for 2010, thus lifting the Turkish economy up to and beyond pre-crisis levels. The sharp Although decline in consumer the rate of inflation inflation fluctuated was another somewhat positive during the year development. on the back of rising food prices, it dropped again dramatically towards the end of the year, resulting in a year-end average inflation rate of 6.4%, down from 10% at the beginning of the year, lower even than the government s year-end target of 6.5%, and the lowest in over four decades. Similarly, Turkey s core inflation dropped to 3% by year-end as prices did not rise to reflect the economy s upward trend and the Turkish lira remained strong.
14 PETROL OFİSİ and the OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT ın Markets in general, and in particular the Istanbul Stock Exchange (IMKB), showed overall positive performance. The ISE-100 (Istanbul Stock Exchange) Index closed the year with approximately 25% in gains despite a sales push during the last months of the year. Interest rates also fell by close to 2 points during the course of the year, finishing at just below 7% at year-end. Other The country s macroeconomic deficit and high current indicators, relatively high however, rate of unemployment, were less favourable. for example, continued to cast a shadow over its overall strong economic performance. The current deficit had shrunk to USD 14 billion in 2009 but swell again to USD 48.5 billion, or 6.6% of GDP in 2010, in what is one of the highest rates in recent years. And while some gains were also made on the employment front due to economic growth, the overall employment rate remained above pre-crisis levels. At approximately 11.5%, unemployment figures for 2010 were 2 points higher than those of the pre-crisis period. Relative However, improvements were growing current Turkey s rapidly also made in deficit drove fiscal policy. the Turkish Central Bank to make significant changes in its monetary policies, focusing on ensuring not only price stability but also financial stability. However, the Turkish lira registered significant value losses in large part due to these policies.
15 14 P E T R O L O F İ S İ A N N U A L R E P O R T Although the financing of the current deficit shortfall posed no serious problem as such, there has been a marked deterioration in the quality of this finance. Direct foreign investments and long-term corporate loans have declined sharply in favour of short-term loans and deposits. For example, capital flow had reached about USD 50 billion by November, however only about 10% (or USD 5 billion) of this amount consisted of direct foreign investments, and while corporations retained their net debtor status, financing was largely made through portfolio financing (mainly government debt securities) and short-term loans and deposits. In summary, But while the Turkish this momentum economy presents a good displayed start for a strong the coming year, growth the country s momentum in large current account deficit remains the most serious macroeconomic issue to be tackled, and general elections scheduled for 2011 are likely to make this task even more of a challenge.

18 PETROL OFİSİ and the OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT ın DEVELOPMENTS IN THE FUEL MARKET The most significant development in the Turkish fuel market of 2010 was the imposition of a 5-year limit on Filling Station dealer contracts. This decision by the Turkish Competition Authority affected all market players and over one thousand dealerships changed their supplier agreements in the process. This development, together with tightening market conditions, led to a heightening of competitive commercial terms especially in fleet fuel contracts and dealer contracts. A ban was also imposed on non-fuel product promotions, the impact A decision In line with was also the EU taken to harmonization limit the process, sulphur the Turkish content of Energy Market all fuels. Regulatory Authority (EPDK) imposed a 10-ppm maximum sulphur content limit for all local refinery-produced or imported diesel products to be sold in Turkey. Supported also by the Turkish Petroleum Industry Association, this decision will lead to a reduction of sulphur emissions by 100 times, reducing the amount of sulphur and particle materials released into the atmosphere by 9,900 tonnes per year. Diesel In 2010, diesel automotive automotive sales sales increased continued to by 69% over increase the previous dramatically. engine vehicles year and diesel accounted for 54% of all vehicles sold in 2010, up from 44% in The overall Turkish automotive market s strong growth trend also continued with 2010 registering a 37.7% increase over the previous year, where production increased by 25.9%, imports by 48.3% and exports by 20%. of which will start to be felt in 2011.
