NONREFUNDABLE BOND is a bond issue that cannot be redeemed for a stated period of time using the proceeds from a new, lower-cost issue to finance the refunding. The bond can still be called without a refunding, but the company must use internal capital or equity funds to retire the issue. This provides some protection to the bondholder if interest rates decline significantly.
UNDERABSORBED BURDEN is where total employee costs, other than salaries, have not been fully allocated to products sold or services offered.
NOMINAL RETURN is an investment return that does not take into account the effects of inflation on the investment or return.
