Net Cash Refunding

The most common type of Refunding. In such a transaction, the Refunding Bond proceeds, together with Interest earnings thereon, are structured to produce sufficient funds to pay the Principal and Interest on the Refunded Bonds until the Redemption or maturity of the Refunded Bonds, whichever is earlier, and also to pay the Redemption Premium, if any, on the Refunded Bonds on the date of Redemption. This contrasts with a “gross refunding” where the initial deposit of the Refunding Bond proceeds is sufficient to pay all of the Principal, Interest and Redemption Premium, if any, of the Refunded Bonds until the Redemption or Maturity of the Refunded Bonds, whichever is earlier, and anticipated Interest earnings are not taken into account.
