Croatia sold out a EUR 700mn issue of euro-denominated 18-mo Treasury notes on Tuesday, August 13, at an average annual yield of 5%, the ministry of finance said in a statement.
This was the first euro-denominated debt sale with 18-mo maturity of the Croatian government so far this year. Investors showed a considerable interest in it with banking and non-banking institutions submitting offers to the value of EUR 1.14bn.
There were a number of three-month and one-year euro denominated T-bill auctions in Croatia this year. The last one took place on July 2 with average yields reaching 0.55% and 1.30%, respectively, somewhat lower compared to the previous sales. The size of the sold securities back then was EUR 3mn.
