The case for accounting separately for the debt and equity features of a convertible bond is based on two main assumptions: convertible debt can be decomposed into two, or more, fundamental financial instruments, and a convertible bond has the same economic substance as a bond with a detachable warrant. These assumptions are re-examined in this paper where it is shown that it is generally not possible to decompose a convertible bond into fundamental financial instruments, nor is it possible to form a package of a bond and a detachable warrant that replicates the character of the convertible bond.
