equity note

(redirected from Equity Notes)

Equity Note

A medium-term debt security that automatically turns into common stock at maturity. That is, rather than receiving back the principal, the holder exchanges the equity note for common stock. Before maturity, the equity note pays coupons like an ordinary debt security and has a higher priority than common stock in the event of the issuer's liquidation. An equity note combines the guaranteed return of a bond or other debt security with the potential for a higher return that comes with holding common stock.
