Make whole provision
Related to the lump-sum payments made when a loan or bond is called, equal to the NPV of future loan or coupon payments not paid because of the call. The payment can be significant and negate the attractiveness of a call.
A provision that allows a borrower to prepay the remaining fixed rate term debt. However, the borrower has to make an additional payment that is derived from a formula based on the net present value of the future debt payments. This can often be significant, which is why such provisions are rarely invoked.
