(MENAFN) In an attempt to lessen its swelling debt and unfreeze long-delayed aid, Greece announced that it would spend USD12.98 billion to buyback bonds, reported Reuters.

It said that it would set a price range above market expectations in order to tempt enough investors.

The move is crucial to the efforts of the country's foreign lenders to put Athens' debt back on a sustainable footing, moreover, its success is important to release funding the debt-ridden country needs to avoid a bankruptcy.

The buyback will be carried out via a modified Dutch auction that introduces an element of competition among investors.

If a bondholder in a Dutch auction attempts to get a price close to the upper limit, there will be a risk that he or she may be left out if the buyback amount is filled at lower prices. There will be one settlement price for each series of bonds.
