Yemeksepeti decided that a portion of proceeds from the sale—$27 million, to be exact— should be split among the company’s 100 employees to reward them for years of hard work. The ecstatic workers took home a payout of $200,000 each.

“Some employees cried, some screamed, some wrote letters of thanks,” Yemeksepeti’s CEO, Nevzat Aydın, told Hurriyet Daily News.

“There were emotions, because you affect the lives of the people. It was a good thing. I wish we could have given them more.”

Aydın said the right offer came at the right time and was a huge increase from an original offer to buy the tech company 15 years ago for a mere $3 million.
