Means that a loan is periodically repriced at an agreed spread over the appropriate, currently prevailing rate. Most term loans in the Euromarket are made on a rollover basis as to current LIBOR rate.

Roll Over

1. The act or practice of taking profits or other proceeds from investments and making other investments with them. It nearly always means that one is investing in more of the same security. For example, one may take dividends from a stock and buy more shares with it or may take coupon payments to buy more of the same bond issue. It is also called reinvesting. Colloquially, rolling over refers to reinvesting proceeds from one retirement account in another retirement account without causing a taxable event.

2. A loan that a borrower may renew upon maturity. This may happen when the borrower has only been making interest payments over the life of the loan. See also: Refinancing.

The reinvestment of money received from a maturing security in another similar security. Rollover usually applies to short-term investments such as certificates of deposit, commercial paper, and Treasury bills.

Rollover.

If you move your assets from one investment to another, it's called a rollover.

For example, if you move money from one IRA to another IRA, that transaction is a rollover. In the same vein, if you move money from a qualified retirement plan, such as a 401(k), into an IRA, you create a rollover IRA.

Similarly, when a bond or certificate of deposit (CD) matures, you can roll over the assets into another bond or time deposit.
