    [$$] Another SMR? SMH

    Investors are learning it's pretty easy to get nickel and dimed in the investment-grade bond market. As reported yesterday, Walmart's agreement to buy back $9.5bn of its bonds at a 1-per-cent premium if its deal with Flipkart is delayed is not as airtight as bondholders might hope. First, the SMR itself: the documents for the mega-retailer's $16bn bond offering contain a “special mandatory redemption” (SMR) clause, which ostensibly requires the company to buy back five tranches of bonds at 101 per cent of par value if it doesn't complete its Flipkart acquisition by June 7, 2019.
