Debt issues are often “re-opened,” meaning that an issuer issues an additional tranche of notes at some point after original issue. The additional notes bear the same terms and security identification code (e.g., CUSIP number) as the original notes.

This webcast discussed the important securities law and tax consequences of such re-openings.
