The use of convertible securities--generally bonds or preferred stocks that can be exchanged for common stock of the issuing corporation--has soared during the last decade. In recent years there have been instances where the capital raised through convertible securities has exceeded the amount of capital raised through common stock. Why do companies use convertibles so heavily?

To answer this question, recognize that convertibles virtually always have coupon rates that are lower than would be required on straight, nonconvertible bonds or preferred stocks. There-fore, if a company raises $100 million by issuing convertible bonds, its interest expense is lower than if it financed with nonconvertible debt. But why would investors be willing to buy convertibles, given their lower cash payments?

The answer lies in the conversion feature--if the price of the issuer's stock rises, the holder of the convertible can exchange it for stock and realize a capital gain. So, convertibles hold down the cash costs of financing by giving investors an opportunity for capital gains. A convertible bond's value is tied to the price of the stock into which it is convertible, whereas a nonconvertible bond's price is based on its fixed-income payments. Therefore, convertibles' prices rise and fall much more than regular bonds' prices; hence, convertibles are relatively risky.
