Greece rolls over 3-month T-bills, yield steady
Greece sold 1.138 billion euros ($1.22 billion) of three-month T-bills to refinance a maturing issue, keeping its public finances afloat, debt agency PDMA said on Wednesday.
The debt agency sold the new paper at a yield of 2.70 percent, unchanged from a previous sale last month.
In the rollover, T-bill holders – mostly Greek banks – renew their positions instead of getting paid on the maturing paper they hold.
The sale’s bid-to-cover ratio was 1.30, unchanged from the last sale. The amount raised included 262.5 million euros in non-competitive bids. Settlement will be on Nov. 13
