Also called partial defeasance. Issuer has money set aside to redeem a portion of an issue and the indenture states that the securities could be called earlier than the stated maturity.

Best Practice

If a full or partial position is outstanding on the redemption date and confirmation from the agent of the redemption, proceeds of this should be agreed between counterparties and paid on the pay date of the event. In the event of a redemption payment being made after pay date, the lender should continue to collateralise the full loan until the redemption payment is made.

Where applicable, and if agreed between both counterparties, the redemption proceeds can be netted with any cash collateral that has been exchanged on the position previously. As with redemptions, coupon payments upon confirmation of the event should be paid on pay date of the event. (COAC-45)
