FACTBOX-Greek privatisations, past and future

May 6 (Reuters) - Greece's successful return to bond markets last month has helped to spur interest from international investors in the country's plans to sell off state assets - including airports, ports and railways - to cut debts.

Below are privatisation proceeds Greece has raised so far, its future targets and an indicative time-table of upcoming asset sales and concessions. The figures have been compiled by Reuters, based on official documents.

PRIVATISATION REVENUE TARGETS (in bln euros)

Year Cash raised, Cash raised, Value of annual deals signed, cumulative cumulative* 2011 (actual) 1.6 1.6 1.7 2012 (actual) 0.0 1.6 2.6 2013 (actual) 1.0 2.6 3.8 2014 (forecast) 1.5 4.1 4.9 2015 (forecast) 2.2 6.3 2016 (forecast) 3.4 9.6 2017 (forecast) 2.9 12.4 2018 (forecast) 3.0 15.4 2019 (forecast) 3.4 18.7 2020 (forecast) 3.6 22.3 * The figures on column "value of deals signed" differ from

those on column "cash raised" because privatisation proceeds are often disbursed in installments over a period of years. They also differ because sums are not disbursed upon the deals' signature but after their approval by regulators, courts or parliament.
