Freddie Mac to sell $3 billion bills on Monday

March 18 (Reuters) - Freddie Mac, the No. 2 U.S. home funding company, said it will sell $3 billion of reference bills on Monday.

The company said it plans to sell $1.5 billion of three-month bills due June 17, 2013, and $1.5 billion six-month bills, due Sept. 16, 2013.

The bills will be sold over the Internet in a Dutch auction. In such uniform price auctions, successful bidders pay only the price of the lowest accepted bid rather than the actual price as in a conventional multiple-price auction.

Bids will be accepted from authorized dealers until 9:45 a.m. EDT (1345 GMT).

Settlement is March 19.
