Last month, we analysed in these pages ("Convertible bonds and disruption: married at first sight!", 21/04/22) the criteria that allow for disruption (innovation/demand/regulatory support) and we proposed two recent emblematic illustrations, genome sequencing and electric vehicles. Companies in these two sectors had used convertible bonds to finance their development.
