Investopedia explains 'Modified Following'


An example of modified following is the business day convention. This implied rule states that if the payment date on a swap or other contractual transaction does not fall on a banking day, then the modified following date will be the next banking day unless that banking day extends into a new month, in which case the banking day that precedes the payment date is used.
