Returns the price per \$100 face value of a security that pays interest at maturity.


PRICEMAT(<settlement>, <maturity>, <issue>, <rate>, <yld>[, <basis>])


Term Definition
settlement The security's settlement date. The security settlement date is the date after the issue date when the security is traded to the buyer.
maturity The security's maturity date. The maturity date is the date when the security expires.
issue The security's issue date.
rate The security's interest rate at date of issue.
yld The security's annual yield.
basis (Optional) The type of day count basis to use. If basis is omitted, it is assumed to be 0. The accepted values are listed below this table.

The basis parameter accepts the following values:

Basis Day count basis
0 or omitted US (NASD) 30/360
1 Actual/actual
2 Actual/360
3 Actual/365
4 European 30/360

Return Value

The price per \$100 face value.


  • Dates are stored as sequential serial numbers so they can be used in calculations. In DAX, December 30, 1899 is day 0, and January 1, 2008 is 39448 because it is 39,448 days after December 30, 1899.

  • The settlement date is the date a buyer purchases a coupon, such as a bond. The maturity date is the date when a coupon expires. For example, suppose a 30-year bond is issued on January 1, 2008, and is purchased by a buyer six months later. The issue date would be January 1, 2008, the settlement date would be July 1, 2008, and the maturity date would be January 1, 2038, which is 30 years after the January 1, 2008, issue date.

  • PRICEMAT is calculated as follows:

    $$\text{PRICEMAT} = \frac{100 + (\frac{\text{DIM}}{\text{B}} \times \text{rate} \times 100)}{1 + (\frac{\text{DSM}}{\text{B}} \times \text{yld})} - (\frac{\text{A}}{\text{B}} \times \text{rate} \times 100)$$


    • $\text{B}$ = number of days in year, depending on year basis.
    • $\text{DSM}$ = number of days from settlement to maturity.
    • $\text{DIM}$ = number of days from issue to maturity.
    • $\text{A}$ = number of days from issue to settlement.
  • settlement, maturity, and issue are truncated to integers.

  • basis is rounded to the nearest integer.

  • An error is returned if:

    • settlement, maturity, or issue is not a valid date.
    • maturity > settlement > issue is not satisfied.
    • rate < 0.
    • yld < 0.
    • basis < 0 or basis > 4.
  • This function is not supported for use in DirectQuery mode when used in calculated columns or row-level security (RLS) rules.
