USE OF EU/IMF BAILOUT FUNDS SO FAR

SUSPENSION OF BAILOUT PAYMENTS

EU/IMF have suspended bailout payments since June 28, when they released a partial tranche of 1 billion euros. Two tranches of bailout money over a total 36.2 billion euros have been held up since. A further 7.2 billion euro tranche is due by the end of December.

GREEK DEBT/HAIRCUT

Greece's general government debt at end-2011 stood at 356 billion euros. The first haircut (PSI) shaved 106 billion euros off Greek debt owed to private-sector bondholders.

The debt Greece owed to its official sector lenders (EU/IMF/ECB) is estimated at about 200 billion euros, broken down as follows:

- EU bilateral loans: 52.9 billion euros

- EFSF: 74.4 billion euros

- IMF loans: 21.8 billion

- Bonds held by the ECB: about 50 billion euros

EU/IMF REPAYMENT

Repayment of IMF loans begins in the third quarter of 2013 (a total 9.1 billion euros by end-2014). Repayment of EU/EFSF debt begins in 2020.

TERMS OF EU/IMF LOANS

Euro-area loans disbursed between June 2010 and March 2011 were charged at interest between 3.4 pct and 4 pct, leading to total charges of 634 mln euros.

Euro-area loans disbursed between June 2011 and March 2012 were charged at between 2.67 pct and 3.03 pct, leading to total charges of 1.31 billion euros.

EFSF loans under the second bailout plan are provided at cost, with loans amortised over a 25-year period, including a 10-year grace period.

IMF loans are charged at about 2.7 pct.
