Structured bonds can be extendible or stepped up. Extendible bonds offer predetermined interest payments like other bonds. If the bonds are not called, the investor is paid a stepped-up coupon according to the rate schedule. This stepped-up rate is the compensation for the risk of extending towards final maturity.
