These types of bonds are attractive to both investors and issuers. The investors receive the safety of guaranteed payments on the bond and are also able to take advantage of any large price appreciation in the company's stock. (Bondholders take advantage of this appreciation by means warrants attached to the bonds, which are activated when the price of the stock reaches a certain point.) Due to the equity side of the bond, which adds value, the coupon payments on the bond are lower for the company, thereby reducing its debt-financing costs.

A type of convertible bond issued in a currency different than the issuer's domestic currency. In other words, the money being raised by the issuing company is in the form of a foreign currency. A convertible bond is a mix between a debt and equity instrument. It acts like a bond by making regular coupon and principal payments, but these bonds also give the bondholder the option to convert the bond into stock.

With all the inherent features of convertible bonds, FCCBs emerge as a good bet for both the issuers and investors. - FCCBs with a maturity term of 3-7 years provide an option to the bondholders to either redeem their investments or convert FCCBs into equities at or before maturity term at pre-determined price. Consequently, FCCBs entitle an investor for coupon rate payments with an additional option of conversion of bonds into equities.

A foreign currency convertible bond (FCCB) is a type of corporate bond issued by an Indian listed company in an overseas market and hence, in a currency different from that of the issuer. The highlight of the FCCB, however, is the option of converting the bonds into equity at a price determined at the time the bond is issued. It also has the benefits of a debt instrument as it includes guaranteed returns or yields which are payable in foreign currency. FCCBs have a maturity period of about five years during which no call or put option can be exercised. They are generally viewed as a means of foreign investment into a company and have to comply with the limits imposed depending on the sector. Currently Indian companies can raise up to $50 million in a FY through issue of such bonds via automatic route. For companies, FCCBs gave them access to funds at cheaper rates, given the fact that many of these were zero coupon bonds with a yield-to-maturity structure , meaning the company would have to make large-scale payments only when the bonds were redeemed. Also, the interest rates were much lower than that of normal debt. In fact, given the boom in the markets and rising share prices, the assumption was that a larger number of bondholders would choose to convert their bonds into shares eventually. The company could also then benefit from the lack of outflows from their reserves.

Dear Uma, FCCB stands for foreign currency convertable bond. Foreign currency convertible bonds (FCCBs) are a special category of bonds. FCCBs are issued in currencies different from the issuing company's domestic currency. Corporates issue FCCBs to raise money in foreign currencies. These bonds retain all features of a convertible bond, making them very attractive to both the investors and the issuers. These bonds assume great importance for multinational corporations and in the current business scenario of globalisation, where companies are constantly dealing in foreign currencies. FCCBs are quasi-debt instruments and tradable on the stock exchange. Investors are hedge-fund arbitrators or foreign nationals. FCCBs appear on the liabilities side of the issuing company's balance sheet. Under IFRS provisions, a company must mark-to-market the amount of its outstanding bonds. The relevant provisions for FCCB accounting are International Accounting Standards: IAS 39, IAS 32 and IFRS 7. FCCB are issued by a company which can be redeemed either at maturity or at a price assured by the issuer. In case the company fails to reach the assured price, bond issuer is to get it redeemed. The price and the yield on the bond moves on the opposite direction. The higher the yield, lower is the price. Foreign currency convertible bonds are equity linked debt securities that are to be converted into equity or depository receipts after a specified period. thus a holder of FCCB has the option of either converting it into equity share at a predetermined price or exchange rate, or retaining the bonds.
