(Bloomberg) — European Financial Stability Facility decided today to reimburse the EU103m step-up margin paid by Greece for the period between Jan. 1 and June 17, 2018, according to statement on EFSF website.
EFSF also decided, for period between June 17 2018 and June 17 2019, to reduce to zero the 2% step-up margin that would otherwise be payable on certain EFSF loans
