Greek 13-Week Cash-(Out)Flow Forecast

Tyler Durden's picture

As G-Pap faces the wrath of every long-only-manager, European leader, and sell-side equity strategist, by giving 'we-the-people' their say, we thought it potentially instructive to look at what the Greeks face over the next three months. As with every bankrupt company, we outline the 13-week forecast for cash-flows, specifically focused on what interest and principal payments are due to the end of January. Greece faces almost EUR20bn in interest and principal payments through the end of Jan2012, dominated by EUR12.2bn in payments in December alone with the last week of the year a huge EUR8.9bn!! It does make us wonder just how much leeway the Troika is willing to give if they don't follow the rules.

Obviously this translates in the DJI being up 200 points.


Oh regional Indian's picture

I think it translates to G-spot being a mere Pap smear in the history books.

Between Shipping and Olive Oil and Two-rism, one would think Greece would be fine no? no?

Used to be a time nation's were mostly self sudfficient. Now we've al been iMF'd.

Privatization, FTW. Flows from Banks Block Current Seas!

But for having big banks and a government that can't control it's spending, your correct.

Well, I guess they have to pump for the dump later.

will this effect the percentage of alcohol in ouzo?

Ancona's picture

No, it will only affect the total quantity of ouzo being consumed......geometrically of course.

Have fun at Christmas boys and girls, because we face the slaughterhouse just days afterward.

Greece is toast and a non issue. What is the issue is to create a firewall that shakes out of Euro zone all the small fry to protect Italy and Spain sovereign bunga-bunga from creating Banksta contagion, true financial armageddon trigger world wide. First line of final defense. The three small Pigs can go die outside eurzone, their sort is now sealed. EU will now reconfigure in concentric rings, around Germany/FR/Ho/BE/LuX/AUS/It/SP core. Then a second tier involving all those in second division euro pegged ring. Then another ring of non Euro pegged EU members. Three concentric rings or something to this effect. 

They now have no other choice then to break down current Euro construct; can they achieve it before the shit hits the fan in contagion backwardation? 

Your guess as good as mine. Anyway, they are going to head that way into the fog of 2012. Good luck to Euro dream -on runaway train, Istanbul train without a brake and no driver.

Italy is ok, most of the debt is like Japan, owned by domestic players. The real question is France. I'd say France will go alone rather than Italy but the rest of eurozone will stay intact. Greece could go either way.

Just do the right thing, save your money  and default. There will be financing later then you can default again.

When someone owes me money, I want paid. So no, it does not make me wonder what their circumstances are. Just pay me.

Dr. No's picture

Business bad? Fu*k you, pay me. Oh, you had a fire? Fu*k you, pay me. Place got hit by lightning, huh? Fu*k you, pay me.

Christophe2's picture

When someone makes a dumb loan and then bitches aboud the other party defaulting, I laugh.  When they continue their self-centered 'I want'/'I am owed' speech, I laugh harder.


The Greek debacle is a story of two sides trying to take unscrupulous advantage of one another, and as recent events clearly demonstrate (massive riots, etc.), it wasn't the Greek PEOPLE who were in control at any point in time, hence the debt is ODIOUS.


FUCK YOU IMF, BIS, EU and insolvent banks: just go bankrupt.

As a Finn I would say and about two vodka bottles after, WE SHOULD INVADE THE PLACE! The place is in ruins anyway! So few bullets holes here and there, nobody would even notice!

Houses not btw completed (evading the real-estate tax), marinas not completed (EU fund fraud). And our fellow komrades Germans are as always with us :) You Greeks stay in Euro or you cry and stay in Euro. Or we will sell you to Turks. Your MOVE!

This is off topic but it seems the financial  media scum to an anchorette and anchor are outraged the Gpap wants to put it to the people. 

Is there some central committee that issues these disgusting pukes their scripts?  Like a committee chaired by JPM with GS as vice chair.

2y Greek Bonds just hit 96.72% so obviously there is no problem

defn8Dog's picture

Don't forget the 1y GGGB, trading at 28 cents on the dollar and the fact that the master plan doesn't allow the ECB to mark all the trash they've purchased down to market.  That won't be a problem, either.

CVA desks to keep buying sovereign CDSs – even if they never pay out
Even if CDS contracts are not triggered in Greek restructuring, Basel III's CVA charge ensures the market will live on - but episode raises fresh questions about design of capital framework, dealers...

Greece may need to do as the east has done and involk religion(sarc) in the name of public order.. The only real difference between Greece and Turkey ... one nation uses Fiat to control, that tool now lost,  the other involks religious idealism, still being enforced( sic).. Seriously... if Greece can tell the EU to Fuck Off and get away with it, more power to them.

There is a new joke.

Two Greeks meet and start talking about things. The first says ''Bad stuff, somebody will have to work now.''. The second answers ''Yes, but who would that be?''. The first Greek has the answer ''Why, the Germans of course.''.


Actually, that I think about it, it is not new. This has been going on for years.

Oooh boy, we're saved....?  RAN Squawk:

Greek government has sufficient cash to last until December, new taxes helped boost Greek cash reserves according to a source


skistroni's picture

Greek government can fantasize as much as they want about finding money, it's the Greek people that won't have any left until then. 

In September, about 30% of the families in Greece had to pay out of their thin reserves to survive (mostly unemployed and low-pension people).

In October, 99% of the familes had to do that (thanks to extra urgent property taxation, extra urgent free-lancers taxation, extra-urgent double tax on last years' income, and back-dated salary withholdings).

Don't know if you get that, but currently we are actually PAYING to be able to work and live in our own country.

quote from imf:  The board would not want to give money to Greece and then wonder what will happen [...] The board will want comfort that Greece will fulfil its commitments and right now Papandreou is unable to give that.

The sooner Greece holds the referendum, the sooner the sixth tranche will be paid. But right now, it isn't going to be paid.
