A new bond linked to the euro zone HICP consumer price index (excluding tobacco) - the OAT€i 1.6% July 25, 2015, has been auctioned for the first time on Thursday November 18, 2004 and the settlement will take place on November 23.

The amount bid was EUR3,497 million and the amount allotted EUR5,682 million, confirming investors' continued appetite for this asset class. The average weighted price was 100.32 and the average real yield 1.57%, giving a breakeven inflation rate of 2.32%.

With this new 10 year benchmark, AFT complements its range of index-linked OATs. A total of seven lines are already available, with maturities of 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2029 for lines linked to the French consumer price index, 2012, 2020 and 2032 for lines linked to the euro zone price index. This OAT€i will be tapped subsequently in order to meet investor demand and to ensure a liquidity comparable to that of existing inflation-linked OATs.

Amount sale: EUR5174 million; amount bid: EUR8336 million - Average yield: 3.11% - lowest accepted price 99.45 - percentage at the lowest price 50% - settlement on November 23, 2004.
