1. ORGANIZATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
ORGANIZATION - Capital World Bond Fund, Inc. (the "fund") is registered under the Investment Company
Act of 1940 as an open-end, nondiversified management investment company. The fund seeks to maximize long-
term total return, consistent with prudent management, by investing in quality fixed-income securities issued by
major governments and corporations all over the world, including the United States.
The fund offers four classes of shares as described below:
Class A shares are sold with an initial sales charge of up to 3.75%.
Class B shares are sold without an initial sales charge but are subject to a contingent deferred sales charge
("CDSC") paid upon redemption. This charge declines from 5% to zero over a period of six years. Class B
shares automatically convert to Class A shares after eight years.
Class C shares are sold without an initial sales charge but are subject to a CDSC of 1% for redemptions within
one year of purchase. Class C shares automatically convert to Class F shares after ten years.
Class F shares, which are sold exclusively through fee-based programs, are sold without an initial sales charge or
Holders of all classes of shares have equal pro rata rights to assets, dividends, liquidation and other rights. Each
class has identical voting rights, except for exclusive rights to vote on matters affecting only its class. Each class of
shares may have different distribution, administrative services and transfer agent fees and expenses. Differences in
class-specific expenses will result in the payment of different per share dividends by each class.
SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES - The financial statements have been prepared in conformity with
accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. These principles require management to
make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.
