It was interesting to me too, I hadn't noticed it in the terms of the EI bonds I held. The option is in the terms under the title "Change of Control" I think. Annual reports also refer to this feature.

My impression is that the enlarged, leveraged acquiring business is viewed as more risky than the original issuer, which would explain why the put option was taken, as well as the higher yield on the newly issued bonds.

I have a response from the FCA which is basically not much use so I won't scan it and upload it. I have responded making a suggestion that certainty is needed as to what extent hybrid capital can be called.
