The ministry also sold three-month kuna T-bills worth HRK 75mn , less than the planned HRK 100mn but meeting to all arrived bids. The T-bills yielded 0.7%, flat from the previous auction held on Jan 28. Since the beginning of 2014, the country sold a combined HRK 2.688bn worth one-year and three-month kuna-denominated T-bills and EUR 2.9mn worth one-year euro-denominated securities in four auctions.
