Greece raises 500 mil. Euros through bond reopening
The issue was only open to primary dealers, but was still oversubscribed more than 3 times, Greece’s Public Debt Management Agency (PDMA) announced.
It said total bids amounted to 1.595 billion Euros, with a 3.19 coverage ratio.
The uniform yield secured amounted to 3.61%, compared to the original rate of 3.90%.
On Friday, the PDMA had announced in a bourse filing that “this operation comes to provide additional liquidity on this maturity point of the Greek government bond curve.”
This issue is set to mature on January 30, 2033. Greece has not yet attained investment grade for its sovereign bonds, but Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis stated on Monday that this is a feasible national target that Greece will achieve by 2023.
