Early termination principle iprs
Early Termination Principle - IPRS

  • As the IPRS transaction is settled via 2 sets of asset purchase and asset sales agreement (one for fixed leg, and one for current leg), any early termination would render future agreements non-applicable.

  • Since future asset purchase / asset sale agreement are not performed, is there any loss ? Hence any marked to market settlement ?

  • The commitment to enter into future asset purchase and asset sale agreement is evidenced in the Trade Confirmation Agreement, which is legally binding and obliging.

  • Settlement Amount is seen as the payment to be exchange for the release of obligation to continue to perform the committed future asset purchase and asset sale agreement.
