(We recommend this as work of authority.)

A bond on which the payment of the principal is postponed.  When the repayment of bonds cannot conveniently be met at maturity in cash, the bondholders may be offered new bonds to take their place or the old bonds may be extended.  In the latter case, when the security behind them is not changed, the bonds are said to be extended or continued.  An extended bond is not to be confused with an EXTENSION BOND.
