In its first bond sale since the bail-out in May, Greece was able to raise 1.25bn euros (Ã‚Â£1.05bn; $1.58bn) in new funds. The offer was oversubscribed, with bids totalling 3.6bn euros. The terms of the bonds require Greece to repay the loans in three months, at a return rate of 4.65%.
It is worth noting however, that payments are on condition that Greece slashes public spending and boosts tax revenue.
