Greece to auction 1 bln euros of 3-month T-bills on Sept 18

Greece will auction 1 billion euros of three-month T-bills on September 18 to fund the rollover of a previous 1.6 billion euro issue that comes due on September 21, the country’s debt agency PDMA said on Friday.

The settlement date will be Sept. 21. Only primary dealers will be allowed to participate and no commission will be paid.
