call premium

Call premium

Premium in price above the par value of a bond or share of preferred stock that must be paid to holders to redeem the bond or share of preferred stock before its scheduled maturity date.

Redemption Premium

Money over and above the face value of a callable bond that the issuer pays to bondholders if the bond is called. A callable bond is a bond that the issuer is permitted to redeem or repay before the maturity date, depriving the bondholder of future coupon payments. Usually the issuer does this if it can reissue the same amount of debt at a lower interest rate. The redemption premium exists to compensate bondholders for some of their lost interest payments. It is especially useful if they can only reinvest in securities with a lower return rate. The redemption premium is also called the call premium.

call premium

The difference between the principal amount of a security and the price at which the security can be called by the issuer. During the first few years a call is permitted, the premium is generally equal to one year's interest. Thereafter, the premium gradually declines to zero at maturity. Calls for sinking fund requirements are usually made at par rather than at a premium. Also called redemption premium.
