offer. Note that for a gilt to be eligible for the BoE's APF purchase programme,
at least GBP4.00bln must have been issued, so in order for this gilt to be
immediately eligible the majority of the PAOF will need to be taken up (note

auction). The current five-year benchmark (the 0.625% Jun-25 gilt) was last
issued just under three weeks ago and saw a decent bid-to-cover ratio of 2.55x

well as 14 July.
RESULTS: Auction results will be released shortly after the auction closes at
10:00BST with a further GBP812.5mln nominal available through the PAOF to
successful bidders.
