Twin Oaks Health Center has a bond issue outstanding with a coupon rate of 7% and four years remaining until maturity. The par value of the bond is $1000 and the bond pays interest annually.
a. Determine the current value of the bond if present market conditions justify a 14% required rate of return.
b. Now, suppose, Twin Oaks’ four year bond had semiannual coupon payments. What would be its current value? (Assume a 7% semiannual required rate of return. However, the actual rate would be slightly less than 7% because semiannual coupon bond is slightly less risky than an annual coupon bond).
c. Assume that Twin Oaks’ bond had a semiannual coupon but 20 years remaining to maturity. What is the current value under these conditions? (Again, assume a 7% semiannual required rate of return, although the actual rate would probably be greater than 7% because of increased price risk).
The question belongs to Finance and it discusses about calculating the current value of a bond with annual coupon payments, the same bond had semiannual coupon payments, etc. These calculations have been given in the solution in detail.
