Foreword The effects of the global financial turmoil, which first hit Turkish M&A activity in the third quarter of 2008, were much stronger in 2009. The y-o-y decrease in total deal volume was almost 65%. Investors and lending corporations were extremely cautious and difficulties and delays in closings were common. The year 2009 has been the most quiet of the past five years. In 2009, a deal volume of c. US$5.8 billion materialized through 102 deals. Foreign investors’ interest towards investment targets in Turkey waned and their contribution to annual deal volume was c. 40% - significantly lower than in previous years. We also observed the negative impact of the financial crisis on valuations. As Deloitte Turkey, we are pleased to present our annual Turkish M&A Review 2009, featuring analyses and insights into the M&A market in Turkey as well as expectations regarding 2010. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the Corporate Finance Team of Deloitte Turkey for their efforts in the preparation of this study. Başak Vardar Partner Corporate Finance
