Greece raises 1.3 billion euros in T-Bill auction

Tuesday - 2/12/2013, 8:30am  ET

ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- Greece has raised EUR1.3 billion ($1.74 billion) in a Treasury bill auction, with the interest rate paid on the three-month loan roughly unchanged from the last such auction.

The Public Debt Management Agency said the 13-week bonds were sold Tuesday at an interest rate of 4.05 percent, compared with 4.07 percent paid at a Jan. 15 auction.

Greece has been relying on emergency loans from other eurozone countries and the International Monetary Fund since losing access to long-term debt markets in 2010 but it has maintained a market presence with regular Treasury bill auctions.

Tuesday's sale was oversubscribed 1.76 times.
