Answer #1

a) The terms of these bonds are designed to reduce the firm's cash outflows during the initial years of the bond's life.

b) The bond's price is

$75(4.3295) (.8638) + $1,000(.6139) = $894.

c) The current yield is 0%. (The bond is currently not paying interest.)

d) Even though interest rates have fallen from 7.5 percent when this bond was issued to 5 percent, this bond will not be called because the bond does not currently require a cash outlay and the bond has a substantial call penalty.
