Greece sold 1.137,5 billion euros ($1.28 billion) of six-month T-bills on Wednesday to refinance a maturing issue, keeping its public finances afloat.
Debt agency PDMA sold the new paper at a yield of 2.97 percent, unchanged from a previous sale last month.
In the rollover, T-bill holders – mostly banks – renew their positions instead of getting paid on the maturing paper they hold.
The sale's bid-cover ratio was 1.30, unchanged from the last sale. The amount raised included 262.5 million euros in non-competitive bids. Settlement date will be Oct. 9. [Reuters]
