Doubling Option

A sinking fund provision that gives a bond issuer the right to redeem twice the amount of debt when repurchasing callable bonds. A doubling option allows the issuer to retire additional bonds at the sinking fund's call price.

This option will usually be exercised as current interest rates move lower than the bond's yield. The firm will be motivated to repurchase more debt through the sinking fund option and refinance itself at the lower rates.
