The article discusses the 110% special issuer redemption which is emerging as a new trend in the agreements in the oil and gas sector. It states that the arrangement places a limit to the amount bond issuers must pay to redeem their outstanding bonds in the event the company is taken over by another to 110% of par. It also elaborates on the circumstances when the covenant was first used by Brigham Exploration. An examination of how the covenant may impact investors' returns is offered.
