Abstract

A re‐examination indicates that current procedures for measuring the benefit realized by shareholders when a firm calls and refunds an outstanding debt obligation are mis‐specified. The key to a proper measurement is found to lie in the identification of the extinguished remaining‐time‐to‐maturity value of the exercised option on the called debt. A simple procedure for assessing that value is provided and incorporated into a corrected measure of the gains from a callable‐bond refunding.
