Turkey’s capital markets regulator is studying allegations that Ordu Yardimlasma Kurumu or Oyak, the military pension fund, transferred profits from its listed companies to non-listed ones, Sabah newspaper reported.
The regulator in Ankara is looking at claims made against the company and hasn’t yet decided to start a formal investigation, spokesman Aydin Haskebabci said in a telephone interview with Bloomberg News. Asaf Ardak, a spokesman for Oyak in Istanbul, wasn’t available for comment.
Sabah said the regulator is studying a written complaint from an Oyak employee, who alleged the group used internal procurement procedures to channel profits to unlisted companies.
