Geece - Dates coming up to watch 04/09/10 $EWG $NBG

Geece - Dates coming up to watch
• This weekend – activation of IMF-EU rescue? Reuters reported that a deal has been reached on the specific terms of a rescue but its not clear if Athens has requested the plan to be activated. In terms of the parameters of IMF debt, for loans up to three years, Greece will be charged the SDR rate plus 300 bps plus 50 bps service charge (per Reuters).
Topographical map of Greece• Apr 13 - Greece will auction a total of 1.2 billion euros ($1.6 billion) of six- and 12-month T-bills on April 13
• April 20 - Bond redemption for E8.22 billion
• Apr 22 - Greek strikes - Greek civil servants will walk off the job for 24 hours on April 22 to protest against austerity measures which they say burden only the poor, a union (ADEDY) official said on Friday. Reuters
• Late Apr - the country will this month launch a multi-billion US$ denominated bond auction in the US as it hunts for new investors (the county is said to be seeking $5-10B from US investors); Morgan Stanley is being considered to handle the sale. George Papaconstantinou, Greece’s finance minister, would lead a roadshow to the US “after April 20”. Athens is deliberately targeting emerging market investors for this sale (roadshows through China and Japan for this sale are apparently being called off due to anticipation of weak demand). FT/DJ
• May 10 - Coupon payment for E2.278 billion
• May 19 - Bond redemption for E8.086 billion.
