Exchange Delivery Settlement Price
The EDSP is the present value, as of the delivery day at 11:00, of the notional principle amount and the notional coupons. The discounting of the cash flows is performed using discount factors constructed on the Last Trading Day, from the ICE Swap Rate Euro fixings, and corresponding 3m and 3x3m forward rates. The ICE Swap Rate Euro fixings are compiled daily at 11:00 and displayed on Reuters page “ICESWAP2”. Where the EDSP is not an exact multiple of 0.01, it will be rounded to the nearest 0.01, or where the EDSP is an exact uneven multiple of 0.005, to the nearest higher 0.01 (e.g. an EDSP of 134.7245 becomes 134.72)

Notional principal amount due two years from the delivery day
Contract Standard
Cash settlement based on the Exchange Delivery Settlement Price. Unless otherwise indicated, all times are London times.
Notional Series of Cashflows
The underlying notional cash flows consist of a series of fixed notional coupons and a notional principal at maturity, the dates of which fall on anniversaries of the delivery day. Should an anniversary of a delivery day fall on a non-working day, the notional cash flow date will be the next working day, following the modified business day convention. The notional principal amount always falls on the second anniversary of the contract delivery day (or, first working day thereafter), giving each delivery month the price sensitivity of a two year swap or, equivalently, a two year bond priced off and correlated with the swap curve.
