Contingent Convertible

A convertible bond in which the price of the underlying stock must reach a certain level before conversion is allowed. All convertible bonds have a conversion price, that is, the price one pays in order to exchange the bonds for stocks. Contingent convertible bonds, however, have a second, higher price that the underlying stock must meet before a bondholder is allowed to convert. For example, the conversion price for a convertible bond may be $10 per share, but if the stock price is below $20 per share, the investor may not convert the bond.
