# 31 CFR Appendix B to Part 344, Formula for Determining Redemption Value for Securities Subscribed for and Early-Redeemed On or After October 28, 1996

(a) This formula results in a premium or discount to the issuer depending on whether the current Treasury borrowing rate at the time of early redemption is lower or higher than the stated interest rate of the early-redeemed SLGS security. The total redemption value for bonds and notes can be determined by the following two steps. First, calculate accrued interest payable in accordance with § 344.6(d)(1) using the following formula:

(b) The application of this formula can be illustrated by the following examples:

(1) The first example is for a redemption at a premium.

(i) Assume that an $800,000 2-year note is issued on December 10, 1996, to mature on December 10, 1998. Interest is payable at a rate of 7% on June 10 and December 10.

(ii) Assume that the note is redeemed on October 21, 1997, and that the current borrowing rate for Treasury at that time for the remaining period of 1 year and 50 days is 6.25%.

(iii) The redemption value is computed as follows. First, the accrued interest payable is calculated as:

Then, the redemption value is calculated as:

(2) The second example is for a redemption at a discount and it uses the same assumptions as the first example, except the current Treasury borrowing cost is assumed to be 8.00%:

(i) Assume that an $800,000 2-year note is issued on December 10, 1996, to mature on December 10, 1998. Interest is payable at a rate of 7% on June 10 and December 10.

(ii) Assume that the note is redeemed on October 21, 1997, and that the current borrowing rate for Treasury at that time for the remaining period of 1 year and 50 days is 8.00%.

(iii) The redemption value is computed as follows.

First, the accrued interest payable is calculated as:

Then, the redemption value is calculated as:

(c) The total redemption value for certificates of indebtedness can be determined by the following two steps. First, calculate accrued interest payable in accordance with § 344.6(d)(1) using the following formula:

Second, calculate the redemption value per § 344.6(d)(2) using the following equation:

(d) The application of this formula can be illustrated by the following examples.

(1) First, for a redemption at a premium:

(i) Assume that a $300,000 security is issued on December 5, 1996, to mature in 151 days on May 5, 1997. Interest at a rate of 5% is payable at maturity.

(ii) Assume that the security is redeemed on April 9, 1997, and that the current borrowing rate for Treasury at that time for the remaining period of 26 days is 4.00%.

(iii) The redemption value is computed as follows.

First, the accrued interest payable is calculated as:

Then, the redemption value is calculated as:

(2) Secondly, for a redemption at a discount:

(i) Assume that a $300,000 security is issued on December 5, 1996, to mature in 151 days on May 5, 1997. Interest at a rate of 5% is payable at maturity.

(ii) Assume that the security is redeemed on April 9, 1997, and that the current borrowing rate for Treasury at that time for the remaining period of 26 days is 6.25%.

(iii) The redemption value is computed as follows.

First, the accrued interest payable is calculated as:

Then, the redemption value is calculated as:

GPO FDSys XML | Text type regulations.gov FR Doc. 2012-13779 RIN Department of the Treasury Circular, Public Debt Series No. 3-72 DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY, Fiscal Service Final rule. This final rule is effective June 7, 2012. 31 CFR Part 344 The Department of the Treasury (Treasury) is issuing this final rule to revise the regulations governing State and Local Government Series (SLGS) securities. SLGS securities are non-marketable Treasury securities that are only available for purchase by issuers of tax-exempt securities. Current financial market conditions have resulted in extraordinarily low yields in the secondary market for some marketable Treasury securities. As a result, rates applicable to non-marketable State and Local Government Series (SLGS) securities sold to issuers of tax-exempt securities could be negative. To prevent this, Treasury is instituting a floor on the daily SLGS rate, by amending the definition of “SLGS rate” and the definition of the “annualized effective Demand Deposit rate” for Demand Deposit SLGS securities. Additionally, Treasury is revising the definition of “Y” in the annualized effective Demand Deposit rate calculation formula to clarify the calculation method to be used during a year that contains a leap day.
