Devising a non-standard convertible zero-coupon bond to enhance corporate governance
This research paper brings forward a non-standard convertible zero-coupon bond endowed with a set of distinctive features attached to it so as to strengthen the corporate governance of the issuer, namely that conversion actually takes place at maturity date only; that conversion is mandatory; it offers investors a pay-off function tailored to match the conversion; there is no call provision whatsoever; it is suitable for private or public placements; credit-risk rating is of the essence and, lastly, it requires from the company a track record statement on behalf of investors. Although this sort of bond actually provides the company with a powerful financing vehicle, we argue that it could also play a constructive role if it were used in compensation packages for rewarding both senior managers and the Board of Directors.
