Call and refunding provisions, Financial Management

Call provision is the right of the issuer to call back and retire the issued bonds before the maturity date. The issuer may call the bond and retire the bond by paying a price, known as call price. The call price is determined from the call schedule which sets forth a call price based on when the bond is being called. When an issue has a deferred call, the issuer does not call the bond for a specified number of years. The date at which the bond may first be called is referred to as the first call date.
