Fixed Rate Bond Make-Whole Calculation and Manifest Errors

Fixed Rate Bond Make-Whole Calculation and Manifest Errors

In the first part of this two part series, Mark talked about the way a calculation agent helps the issuer of a convertible to deal with anti-dilution adjustments and settlement calculations. In this video he talks about the two examples of situations in which he as a calculation agent, help issuers deal with complex calculations on their transactions.
Overview

The role of a good calculation agent is much more than typing numbers into a calculator to find the result of a formula. The role requires a thorough understanding of the transaction documents, the market activities that affect transactions, the hedging of transactions, and the processes – both formal and informal – that are needed to make the transaction work and to know how to help the issuer manage all of these items.

Key learning objectives:

  • How does the formula work for fixed rate bonds which include make-whole calls at the time they are called for redemption?

  • How is an issuance error corrected?
