Hi debentures are one way of raising capital for the company when the company do not want to raise capital by way of fresh equity. Debentures can take the form of convertible and non convertible debentures Convertible debentures are those where part of the debenture face value is converted into shares after specified years without the debenture holder having to make any payment. And as per the terms of issue, balance of the debenture is repaid after specified number of years
