The disbursement of the second sub-tranche of €0.5bn will be made in October 2013.

A first part of €1.5bn will be passed on to Greece’s segregated account together with the disbursement of the first EFSF sub-tranche. The remaining €0.5bn will be passed on to Greece’s segregated account together with the disbursement of the second EFSF sub-tranche.
