MNB accepted bids for HUF 53.81 billion of twelve-month swaps, practically level with the HUF 14.73 bln of three-month, HUF 29.18 bln of six-month and HUF 9.79 bln of twelve-month swaps maturing on May 20, the value date of the tender.

The central bank accepted none of the bids for the one-, three- or six-month swaps.

After payments and redemptions, the stock will comprise HUF 141.1 bln of three-month, HUF 432 bln of six-month and nearly HUF 1.356 tln of 12-month swaps.
