Deva Holding AS (DEVA) , a Turkish drugmaker owned by EastPharma Ltd. (EAST), jumped to the highest level in more than nine months, rising 2.6 percent to 2.40 liras, after saying it will close its plant in Istanbul’s Topkapi district and make plans to sell the property.

Dogan Sirketler Grubu Holding AS (DOHOL) , a group of companies with interests in media and energy, rose 4.2 percent to 75 kurus after Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan stood side-by-side with honorary chairman Aydin Dogan at an opening ceremony for Istanbul Trump Towers yesterday. The two men’s public appearance together comes after years of feuding and after the company’s shares plunged on April 12 amid reports Aydin Dogan could be arrested in connection with a round-up of suspects in an investigation into the 1997 toppling of Turkey’s government.

Dogan Yayin Holding AS (DYHOL) , Dogan’s media holding company, gained 3.1 percent to 67 kurus.
