Income bonds are bonds which pay interest only if the issuer earns enough income to pay them. However, the issuer promises to pay back the face value upon maturity. Sometimes they are structured so that the unpaid interest accumulates over time. These bonds are useful, because they offer the issuer some flexibility when the company is not performing well.
