GreeceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s auction of Treasury bills drew stronger demand than at a previous sale as yields more than doubled in the first offering of debt since the nation won a pledge of aid from the European Union.
The government sold 780 million euros ($1.06 billion) of 26-week bills at a yield of 4.55 percent, attracting bids for 7.67 times the securities offered, the nationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Public Debt Management Agency said today in Athens. Greece also offered 780 million euros of 52-week securities at a yield of 4.85 percent, with a bid-to-cover ratio of 6.54 times. In January, the 52-week bills were sold to yield 2.2 percent.
