Public Offering

VakıfBank was offered to public in November 2005 for the first time and thus, 25.18% of its shares was listed in Istanbul Stock Exchange (ISE).

The public offering was realized through the sales in and out of the country of the new shares issued upon increase of capital rather than the sales of the existing shares of the shareholders; and thus, new resources exceeding USD12 Billion were provided both for our Bank, and for the Turkish economy.

As the companies with a public offering ratio over 25% are included within various indexes in foreign countries, the public offering model was created taking into account that the public offering of the Bank would exceed the rate of 25%; thus contributed to the brand recognition of the Bank in the international markets.

After public offering, the share of the General Directorate of Foundations in the Bank decreased to 58.45% and the share of the VakıfBank Pension Fund decreased to 16.10% and the publicly traded shares constituted 25.18% of the Bank’s capital.
