UNDERSTANDING COMMERCIAL PAPER

Commercial Paper issuances by corporates have been on the rise so far in 2018 as companies finance expensive debt amidst a much lower interest rate environment. Treasury yields have averaged 12.4% in 2018 vs. 2017 average of 17.9%.

In simple terms, companies borrow money from the public by issuing commercial papers. It is essentially an unconditional promise to pay back your money on an agreed future date with interest. The offer includes all the details of the transaction. You may be wondering why a company would approach the investing public for the loan rather than go to a bank. One advantage is the lower interest rate. Commercial papers are issued within the range of rates obtainable in the money market. That means you get to borrow at a rate cheaper than borrowing from the bank. This makes it cheaper to run their operations. For taking this risk, you also get an attractive return on your money.

Commercial Paper issuance can serve as a preamble to any future bond offering by the issuer. Balance sheet efficiency creates greater potential funding capacity for the issuer. Issuance of Commercial Paper helps a company complement its other sources of working capital while diversifying its funding sources to include non-bank investors. It also enables companies to acquire investments that are tradable without a penalty.
