In December 2005, when Vodafone acquired the second largest GSM operator of Turkey, Telsim, from the Savings Deposit Insurance Fund (TMSF) for 4 billion and 550 million USD, Mineks acted as the Advisor for Vodafone on the buy side. Mineks is working with the GSM operators in Turkey on many different projects which will bring different solutions, while establishing business partnership with the leading companies in the World in their respective fields.
In 2012, Mineks took a minority stake in UMT AG Munich which holds several very interesting technology patents. Mineks International is helping the company launch one of these products – a mobile wallet for Smartphones, featuring an innovative mobile payment and couponing solution – in the Turkish market. The product offers multi-channel purchasing power giving the Smartphone owner freedom to choose to buy from any internet site, from print ads, billboards and TV programs via Point of Sale payments at shops, restaurants, hotels, etc., or to send money from person to person.
