Greece sells 812.5 mln euros of 6-month T-bills, yield steady
ATHENS Aug 6 (Reuters) - Greece sold 812.5 million euros ($1.08 billion) of six-month T-bills on Tuesday to roll over a maturing issue, the country's debt agency (PDMA) said.
The T-bills were priced to yield 4.20 percent, unchanged from a previous July auction. The sale's bid-cover ratio was 1.77, up from 1.70 in the previous sale.
The amount raised included 187.5 million euros in non-competitive bids. The settlement date for Tuesday's auction will be Aug 9.
Monthly T-bill sales are Greece's sole remaining source of market funding. Athens has a stock of about 15 billion euros of T-bills, which it regularly refinances with the help of Greek banks which buy and then deposit them as collateral to draw liquidity from the ECB.
