Our Corporation felt the need to make this declaration regarding this new, which has no connection with the truth, is groundless, does not comply with the honesty of journalism and is published with the purpose of public fraud.
As it is known by all, Calik Holding in 2007 with the purchase of Albtelecom, the biggest operator of fixed telephony and internet, and in the framework of this company and Eagle Mobile in order to make him the selected operator in Albania, that invested more than 50 million euros in the country.

In the world, can not find any telecommunications company that has established infrastructure in a period of only three months starting commercial activity; Eagle Mobile related to this success has also won an award in Albania. Eagle Mobile arrived in a coverage for 6 months, the competing companies have completed it in 2 years to 2 years and half and has carried out it with own network and not cooperating with any other company.
With committed investments and the contributing to the economy of Albania created by Calik Holding, the other company in the framework of this corporation Albtelecom, leader company in the field of Internet, with high quality services provided, without interruption, with the strong technical infrastructure and special campaigns, is adding every day the impact to the individual subscriber market or institutional ones. After the committed investiments, theAlbtelecom ADSL service subscribers, on August 2008 reach the number of 1500 persons. While on December 2008 reached the number of 18,110 subscribers to this service, by taking the lead in this market in a very short time. The increase of number of subscribers and the increase of service number, has brought out the value serous increase of Eagle Mobile and Albtelecom in market.
In this direction, Calik Holding with big investments in energy, construction, finance, textile and media sector in Turkey and in other areas of the region, the success achieved in the field of telecommunication in Albania is celebrated with a big party in the occasion of the anniversary of Eagle Mobile on 12 March 2009, in an organization attended by dozens of well-known journalists and seniours officials from Turkey and Albania.
At that festive evening celebration of the birthday of Eagle Mobile, was accentuated that Calik Group highly evaluate and strategy importance the projects in Albania, and Albania has been identified as an opened door open for new opportunities to Europe. It is also knowledge that despite the focus in the sectors of telecommunications and the banking system, to bring more quality services for the Albanian people, with committed investment in technology in human resources, Calik Holding gives important and is in search of new investment opportunities.
Calik Holding sees Albania as an open gate to Europe and is following his investments full-speed in the Balkan. For this reason, the claims that Calik Holding has not make any investment or that one that will sell Albtelecom and Eagle Mobile are completely baseless and far from the truth. Calik Holding with all the investments that have conducted till nowdays, makes known that preserves the right of protection of legal rights before those who have published the false pretence and require from the publishers to publish the disproof or written-answer as soon as possible.
