Message From The Chairman Of
Board Of Directors

Distinguished Investors and Shareholders of Index Grup, Our Esteemed Business Partners and Dear Colleagues,

As we step into the second century of our Republic in 2024 with enthusiasm, pride and high motivation, we, as Index Grup, embark on our journey with highly ambitious dreams and goals.

As Türkiye's leading information technologies distribution group, we operate with 5 companies, 3 of which are publicly traded, and more than 500 colleagues. Thanks to our strong executive team, robust financial position, product portfolio consisting of the world's finest technology brands, superior logistics capability, ecosystem of over 8000 business partners, and our capability to access all parts of Türkiye in the most efficient and broadest fashion, we have maintained our position as the best address for "one-stop procurement" in the technology sector for 35 consecutive years. Having left 2023 achieving a remarkable success in the sector leadership we have maintained since 2000, we are now stepping into 2024 with huge ambitions befitting the second century of our Republic.

Along with the extraordinary developments in technology, we feel the impact of digitalization in almost all countries of the world and in all aspects of life more and more every day. Technology is an integral part of the lives of all humanity today as it was the case in the past, and the significance of digitalization in our lives is growing day by day. It would therefore be wise for us to get ready for tremendous technological advancements in 2024 as well.

It is safe to say that the impact of artificial intelligence models and applications, developing computing power and smarter devices in developing business models and innovation processes will gradually increase as of 2024. We will also witness in 2024 much more of the astonishing advancements we saw in ChatGPT technology in 2023. As of 2024, we will also talk more about quantum artificial intelligence. Quantum artificial intelligence is not yet a trend that will affect all sectors immediately, but we will see its applications in an increasing number of areas in the near future. We can say that another important technological development in 2024 will be the advanced wireless connectivity. The combination of 5G and IoT fairly has the potential to redefine our digital experiences. Thanks to technologies such as 5G and 6G, we will witness developments such as the increase in productivity and improvement of user experiences in many sectors in the near future. Cloud and edge computing, augmented reality and virtual reality will continue to be the areas that we will frequently mention with new developments.

With all such developments, it is very important that in 2024 and the following years we bring sustainable technologies more to the agenda for the future of the world. I believe that we can make more use of the power of sustainable technology, artificial intelligence and generative AI to bequeath a habitable world to future generations. In particular, it is possible for generative AI to produce smart sustainable solutions for efficient renewable energy techniques and electric vehicles.

The potential of all these new technologies to make the world smarter, more efficient and more connected is truly electrifying. As Index Grup, we are continuing to follow the world of the future one step ahead in this extraordinarily fascinating period, as we have been for the last 35 years, and we keep the pulse of the present day as much as possible while placing new technologies on our radar. As we greet 2024 with enthusiasm, we continue our work motivated to bring the world's newest technologies to Türkiye as fast as we can.

Since our establishment, we have always cared about doing what was never done before, being the accomplisher of the firsts in our sector, and adding value to our people, society and the future. As Index Grup, we will maintain our strong, profitable, efficient and stable growth this year without ceasing our investments. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to our valuable investors, business partners, executives, colleagues and all our stakeholders who believe in, trust and contribute to us. As we always say, we love to succeed with you!

I sincerely believe that we will continue to create value for our country with technology in the second century of our Republic, and dreaming of a strong and bright future for Türkiye, I wish you all a happy new year.

My sincere regards,
