a]

conversion price = price of bond / conversion ratio

conversion ratio = number of shares receivable per bond on conversion = 17

conversion price = \$790 / 17 = \$46.47

b]

conversion ratio = number of shares receivable per bond on conversion = 17

c]

Conversion value = number of shares receivable per bond on conversion * market price per share

Conversion value = 17 * ​\$33.79 = \$574.43

Conversion parity price = price of bond / conversion ratio

Conversion parity price = \$790 / 17 = \$46.47

d]

Conversion premium in dollars = Bond Price - (Stock Price × Conversion Ratio)

Conversion premium in dollars = \$790 - (\$33.79 × 17) = \$215.57

Conversion premium as a percentage = conversion premium / (Stock Price × Conversion Ratio)

Conversion premium as a percentage = \$215.57 / (\$33.79 × 17) = 37.53%
