Conditional Call

A provision in a convertible security agreement outlining the circumstances under which the issuer of the convertible security may call it without allowing the holder to exercise the convertible option. Most of the time, the conditional call states that the issuer may call the convertible security if the price of the underlying stock is trading outside a certain range, such that exercising the convertible option will put an undue strain on the issuer.
