A total of 11.27 percent out of the company's publicly held 14.52 percent share belonged to the Istanbul Asset Management, while the 1.11 percent of the remaining share belongs to Boyner family members. Following the share purchase transaction, the free float rate fell to 2.24 percent. While the share of the Qatari partner in Boyner Retail will soar to 53.95 percent, Boyner Holding's share will remain at 42.80 percent and the 1.11 percent share will continue to belong to Boyner family members. The share of the Qatari partner will increase in the distribution of shares. However, it is not known whether the distribution of rights in the administration will change.
