Greece sells 1.625 bln euros of 3-month T-bills, yield eases

ATHENS, Jan 14 (Reuters) - Greece sold 1.625 billion euros ($2.22 billion) of three-month treasury bills on Tuesday to roll over a maturing issue, the country’s debt agency PDMA said.

The T-bills were priced to yield 3.75 percent, down from 3.90 percent in a December auction. The sale’s bid-cover ratio was 2.05, up from 1.92 in the previous sale.

The amount raised included 375 million euros in non-competitive bids. The settlement date for Tuesday’s auction will be January 17.

Greece lost access to bond markets three years ago, when its debt crisis erupted, and monthly T-bill sales are its 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.
