Turkish Ministry of Customs and Commerce (the “Ministry”) has published in Turkish Official Gazette on the date of 25 January 2014 with the number 28893 an amendment to the Communiqué on the Liquidation and De-Registration of the Annulled or Considered Annulled and Not Liquidated Joint Stock Companies and Cooperatives (the “Communiqué”). By the referred amendment, a paragraph has been added to Article 14 of the Communiqué to stipulate the procedure applicable on the liquidation of the companies of which annulment has been ruled by the court and a liquidator has been assigned for such purpose upon the application of the Ministry. Accordingly, (i) in the lack of a notification made by the creditors despite of the call made by the liquidator and there is no property owned by the company or in the event company’s information and documents have not been provided to the liquidator or the liquidator has not been able to access to such information and documents, such circumstances will be notified to the trade registry upon which the company will be de-registered without need for any additional requirement and such de-registration will be published in the Trade Registry Gazette. (ii) in the event the company’s debts are more than its properties according to the balance sheet prepared by the liquidator, this circumstance will be immediately notified by the liquidator to the creditors. In the notification, the creditors will be invited to apply to court and to inform the liquidator about such application within three months following the notification so that the company’s liquidation by way of bankruptcy will be ruled. In the lack of informing the liquidator about the application that needs to be made to the court within the given term, the company’s or cooperative’s title will be de-registered from the trade registry upon application of the liquidator and this circumstance will be published in the Trade Registry Gazette.
