The board approved Dec. 13 the demand from the company last month, which will increase its capital by 7.24 percent to 592 million Turkish Liras, roughly $110 million.

The increase accounts for some 40 million liras, or $7.4 million.

The SPK approved the demand, restricting the re-sale of the shares for six months.
