First Quarter of 2011 Results

Total revenue for the first quarter, ended March 31, 2011 increased by
23.2%, or TL 72.0 million to TL 382.9 million from TL 310.9 million in the
first quarter of 2010. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was TL
6.0 million, or TL 0.15 per share, absent one-off expense in the first
quarter, net profit would have increased to TL 7.5 million, or 0.19 per
share, compared to net income of TL 8.3 million, or TL 0.21 per share in the
first quarter of 2010. Overall the Company's top-line growth was 23.2%, with
28.2% in main categories and 9.8% attributable to tobacco sales. Bizim
Toptan's strong top-line growth is driven by growth in existing stores and
the opening of new stores during 2011. Like-for-like growth was 17.0% in the
first quarter 2011, with 21.0% in main categories and 7.0% in tobacco.

Bizim Toptan's gross profit was TL 33.3 million in the first quarter of
2011 compared to the same period of 2010 when gross profit was TL 30.0
million. Gross margins during the first quarter was 8.7% compared to the same
period in 2010 when gross margins were 9.7%. Gross margins during the first
quarter of 2011 stabilized to normalized levels when compared to first
quarter of 2010, when margins widened due to sales of tobacco in anticipation
of higher price increases which took effect during the first quarter of 2010.

Operating income during the first quarter 2011 TL 10.9 million compared
to TL 12.9 million recorded during the first quarter of 2010. Operating
income was impacted by expenses related to the Company's recently completed
Initial Public Offering in early February. Absent the impact of the special
items discussed above and the tobacco price increase on first quarter 2010,
EBITDA margin would have been 3.8% in the current quarter.

The Company's net cash from operations at the end of the first quarter
2011 was TL 37.4 million compared to TL 33.3 million as of December 31, 2010,
with almost no financial debt.

During the first quarter of 2011, an additional 2 stores were opened,
increasing the Company's total number of stores to 111. Stores opened during
the first quarter were located in high-growth potential locations such as
Manisa and Antalya Regions.
