Dear Friend, --FCCB (Foreign Currency Convertible Bond) is a type of convertible bond issued in a foreign currency i.e. different than the issuer's domestic currency. --FCCBs are bonds issued by a company to raise money in a foreign currency. They have a coupon rate, that is, an interest rate. Buyers have the option of redeeming their investment or converting the bonds into equity at maturity.

Dear Roshni > Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds FCCB FCCB is 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. These types of bonds are attractive to both investors and issuers. The investors receive the safety of guaranteed payments on the bond & are also able to take advantage of any large price appreciation in the company’s stock. Advantages of FCCB 1. The convertible bond gives the investor the flexibility to convert the bond into equity at a price or redeem the bond at the end of a specified period, normally three years if the price of the share has not met his expectations. 2. Companies prefer bonds as it defers the dilution of equity and earnings per share. 3. FCCBs are easily marketable as investors enjoys option of conversion into equity if resulting to capital appreciation. Further investor is assured of a minimum fixed interest earnings. Disadvantages of FCCB 1. Exchange Risk is more in FCCBs as interest on bonds would be payable in foreign currency. Thus companies with low debt equity ratios, large forex earnings potential only opt for FCCBs. 2. FCCBs mean creation of more debt and a forex outgo in terms of interest which is in foreign exchange. 3. There is exchange risk on the interest payment as well as re-payment if the bonds are not converted into equity shares. Thanks

Hie Roshni, **Definition of Foreign Currency Convertible Bond (FCCB) :-** 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. 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.
