Parliamentary questions
6 September 2017
E-004193/2017
Answer given by Mr Moscovici on behalf of the Commission

It is at the discretion of the European Central Bank (ECB) and national central banks to make available financial information on their security market programmes. According to the State revenue statistics, Greece has received transfers related to the Securities Markets Programme (SMP) and the Agreement on Net Financial Assets (ANFA) from the Eurosystem including the Bank of Greece amounting EUR 0.3 billion in 2012, EUR 2.7 billion in 2013, EUR 0.6 billion in 2014, EUR 0.3 billion in 2015 and EUR 0.4 billion in 2016.

The amounts in 2013 and 2014 include transfers from other Member States, whereas for the other years revenues reflect only Bank of Greece transfers of SMP/ANFA profits to the State.

The Eurogroup statement of 15 May 2017 states that the Eurogroup stands ready to implement a second set of debt measures to the extent needed to meet the previously defined gross-financing needs to gross domestic product (GDP) targets, including the use of 2014 SMP profits from the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) segregated account and the restoration of the transfer of the equivalent of ANFA and SMP profits to Greece (as of budget year 2017)(1).

The abovementioned 2014 SMP profits held in the ESM segregated accounts amounts to around EUR 1.8 billion and Euro area central banks (excluding the Bank of Greece) will accumulate around EUR 3.5 billion in profits from holdings of Greek bonds from 2017 to 2026(2).
