    [03] IKA to use state bonds to repay repo transaction

    AMNA/ IKA, Greece's Social Insurance Fund, on Tuesday said it will repay a repo transaction worth 250 million euros – used to pay monthly pensions - by using Greek state bonds.

    IKA said the new transaction will be made using Greece's new state bonds, issued after a "haircut" of the Greek state debt, with a number of low-bidding banks and will have a duration of 49 days.

    National Bank, ATEbank, Eurobank and Alpha Bank participated in the previous transaction.

    Greece's largest pension fund has already received the biggest part of its annual state subsidy envisaged in the state budget.

    IKA reported a 14-pct decline in revenues in the first four months of 2012, compared with the same period last year.
