350-06a_note, 11S Page 2 of 18 B. Other Features (Case B) 1. Call Provision: IBM can buy back the bond at $1150 in year 5. a) Who can “Call” back bonds? b) What will happen when the bond is called back?? c) When will the firm call back bonds? Assumption Call Price Action Explanation The market price is $1200 $1150 The market price is $800 $1150 d) Summary (1) Allows issuer to refund the bond issue if interest rates decline (helps the issuer, but hurts the investor). (2) Borrowers (Issuers) are willing to pay more, and lenders require more, for callable bonds. (3) Most bonds have a deferred call and a declining call premium 2. Sinking Fund: Provision to pay off a loan over its life rather than all at maturity. a) How are sinking funds executed? (1) Call 5% of the issue at par, for sinking fund purposes. (2) Buy bonds in the open market at market price. b) Example: Assumption Action Explanation The market price is $1170 The market price is $970 c) Summary (1) Similar to amortization on a term loan. (2) Reduces risk to investor, shortens average maturity. (3) But not good for investors if rates decline after issuance.
