ACCRUAL BOND is a bond on which interest accrues, but is not paid out to the investor during the time of accrual; instead, the accrual interest is added to the amount of remaining principal and paid at maturity. Also known as an accretion bond or a Z-bond in a CMO issue. See Collateralized Mortgage Obligation.
CAPITAL INFUSION often refers to the cross-subsidization of divisions within a firm. When one division is not doing well, it might benefit from an infusion of new funds from the more successful divisions. In the context of venture capital, it can also refer to funds received from a venture capitalist to either get the firm started or to save it from failing due to lack of cash.
