TEB SME BANKING GROUP TEB SME Banking Group responds to its customers various expectations and needs by offering them products and services of high added value and rendering services such as consultant bank. Following the merger between TEB and Fortis Bank in 2011, the Group began to serve its portfolio of customers through a larger organizational structure. Believing that offering the right combination of products and services to the right customers is a fundamental principle of ensuring customer satisfaction, the TEB SME Banking Group renewed its customer segmentation accordingly and began to serve companies with an annual turnover of up to TRY 30 million. Through a range of products and services that facilitate customers payments and collections, operational procedures were simplified and cash flows coordinated in an effective manner. In 2011, customer satisfaction was made sustainable through continuous improvements in collection and payment systems. Cross selling activities were conducted through projects developed within the framework of the Direct Debit System. The rising penetration in the SME segment positively affected the Bank s market shares. According to end-2011 data published by the end of BRSA, the Bank commands a 5.39% market share in cash loans and a 5.63% market share in non-cash loans. In POS, which is an important product in terms of the management of cash flows of SMEs and enterprises, 2011 was a successful year both in terms of volume and the number of member workplaces. According to the figures for December 2011 released by the Interbank Card Center, TEB boasted a 6.11% market share to rank 5 th among all banks in terms of transaction volume. Offering the opportunity for comprehensive cooperation as a bank that has adopted the principle of meeting all of the insurance-related needs of its customers, TEB offers the following insurance products and services to its SME Banking customers: Elementary insurance policies through Zurich Sigorta AŞ, Life insurance policies and private pension plans through BNP Paribas Cardif Emeklilik AŞ, and Receivable insurance through Coface Sigorta AŞ. Within the framework of the protocol signed between the Undersecretariat of Treasury and the Bank, SMEs may receive, through TEB, some of the interest paid by the Undersecretariat of the Treasury for loans that they obtain in accordance with the conditions of the Investment Incentive Certificate. Loans were extended within this framework in 2011, allowing customers to benefit from this practice through interest payments. Having become involved in all KOSGEB (Presidency of Development and Support of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Administration) programs to provide interest payment support since 2008, TEB SME Banking Group began to extend loans within the framework of these loan programs that were launched in 2010, and continued to do so in This successful cooperation with KOSGEB continues with the Emergency Support Loan 2011, the Emergency Support Loan for the Province of Van and the Operating Capital Support Loan for the Province of Loan programs. Launched by KOSGEB to provide financial support under viable conditions to enterprises which have been affected by situations such as natural disaster, war, general strikes, fire, civil commotions, terrorism, where these situations have been documented and certified by official authorities, and which are registered in KOSGEB s Database. The Emergency Support Loan was expanded with 2 loan interest payment support programs specific to the province of Van in the aftermath of the earthquake to affect the region. The Credit Guarantee Fund (CGF), which TEB is a shareholder of, provides a guarantee to SMEs, paving the way for enterprises to take out more bank loans and allow them to benefit from longterm loans. As such, the TEB SME Banking Group encourages entrepreneurism and contributes to 24 economic growth and development by creating an additional opportunity on behalf of SMEs. Having also mediated in CGF projects during 2011, the TEB SME Banking Group became involved in the project entitled Micro Loans to Micro SMEs, which was implemented by CGF this year. Within the framework of this project, which aims to narrow the developmental inequalities between the poorest 43 cities by gross domestic product and the remaining cities, TEB customers were offered CGF-supported loans. The rollout of these services, designed for SMEs, as well as TEB s special approach towards SMEs, has been considered a success story by the International Finance Corporation (IFC). In a worldwide case study initiated by the IFC with respect to Offering of Non-Financial Services to SMEs, TEB was the only Turkish bank to be cited for its success. Additionally, a new project was launched with the TEB SME Banking Group. Within this framework, a plan was drawn up to analyze the best practices and share them with the public. In another groundbreaking development in the Turkish banking sector, TEB SME Banking Group created TEB is Wherever SME s are accounts in social platforms like Facebook, Twitter and FriendFeed and thus established more effective contact with thousands of SMEs in order to keep its SME segment up-to-date and to respond to the questions of SMEs as quickly as possible. Having adopted facilitating information access channels as the only way to differentiate itself from its rivals in the fiercely competitive SME segment, TEB SME Banking continued to improve its existing service channels, while demonstrating a socially sensitive approach by developing products and services in areas that are of primary importance for the national economy. Helping SMEs rise the forefront in domestic and international competition through the power of information, TEB SME Academy continued to organize training programs in 2011 and held special seminars in large cities like Istanbul, Ankara, Bursa and Adana in daily topics such as Combine Law Combine Law and the New Turkish Trade Code. While TEB SME TV s expert, Prof. Şükrü Kızılot provided comprehensive information on the scope and effects of the Bag Law, Asst. Prof. Korkut Özkorkut focused on the possible effects of the amended Turkish Trade Code on SMEs. Mardin was added as the 32 nd city to host TEB SME Academy Corporate Development Training sessions, and more than 11,000 SMEs participated in classroom education programs. Helping those who are instrumental in their sectors to shape the future of their own sectors, in 2011 the Future Strategy Conferences focused on the tourism sector, which is of great importance to the Turkish economy. In conferences held in Antalya on April 5 th, 2011, the tourism sector s 2- and 5-year development plans and targets were identified with the precious contributions of the members of public and private sectors, as well as NGOs. The first internet TV in the sector to serve SMEs, TEB SME TV reached broader masses in 2011 and became a significant brand in the sector more than 4.5 million visitors, over 100,000 members and an archive of around 5,000 videos. Also keeping a close view of technological developments, TEB SME TV stood at the forefront of mobile communications by offering its applications on the iphone and ipad. Having repeated the success of previous years in 2011 with the Golden Spider Contest, TEB SME TV maintained its title as the People s Favorite and ranked 3 rd in the best portal category. One of the services offering the most concrete contribution to TEB s target to be a consultant bank is TEB SME Consultant, which once again won the approval of its customers this year. The number of SME Consultants reached 300 in The scope of information support provided to SMEs was expanded in 2011 by adding the Agricultural Banking Information Line and Corporate Social Responsibility Information Line to TEB s SME Support Line ( ), one of the most convenient methods of providing information to SMEs in an easy manner and at the requested time. 25 In 2011, Bilginet and Bizfonik were added to the group of business partners of the TEB SME Club, which brings SMEs together under a single roof and combines their strengths in order to reduce their costs. Offering TEB s corporate clients discounts of up to 50% in their purchases, the TEB SME Club addresses more than 15,000 members and thus continues to play a significant role in SMEs purchase decisions. Applying its approach to social responsibility in all of the services it offers, TEB SME Banking launched the TEB SME Employment Package in 2011, demonstrating that that the private sector and not just public institutions or NGOs can produce solutions to the unemployment problem. This package offers those SMEs seeking to hire new personnel a 1.5-point deduction in the interest rates of loans provided from TEB, as well as free-of-charge VIP membership of the TEB SME Club for one year. Moreover, various collaborations were established with non-bank corporations, paving the way for special advantages to be offered by Secret CV and Zurich Insurance to those customers making use of this package. The TEB Zero Interest Technology Loan was developed for SMEs looking to undertake technological investments. Within the framework of this product, those of Arena Bilgisayar s dealers and SMEs who conduct purchases from these dealers are offered flexible maturity options of up to 12 months and the advantage of interest-free purchases of the products included in the campaign. TEB SME Banking has responded to the elementary insurance demands of its customers in the SME segment through a single policy, with the SME Insurance Package, in addition to the SME Responsibility, My Office and Fire insurance policies. POS devices installed in TEB s member workplaces were assured with the POS Insurance against risks such as breakage, flood, theft and malfunction, etc. Other products include the Hotel Package Insurance policy, Engineering Insurance policies, Transportation Insurance policies and Executive Responsibility Insurance policies.

TEB SMALL BUSINESS BANKING TEB Small Business Banking, with its wide product range, aims to produce solutions from a single location for all financial needs of its customers and to be the first bank remembered by its customers in the field of small business banking. TEB possesses a specific scale, a delivery network and a high technological infrastructure, which allow the Bank to offer its products and services to customers at the right time and the right manner. During the merger in 2011, TEB continued to offer solution-oriented products and services rapidly and with an approach that makes its customers feel that TEB always stands by them.
