convertible debenture

Definition

Debenture which can be converted into stock at the option of the holder and/or the issuer at a specified date in the future. Because the buyer has the ability to convert the debenture into stock under certain circumstances, the seller is able to borrow at a lower cost than if the convertibility feature was not present.
