Question

(CHAPTER 7) A corporation has just issued 6% coupon bonds with $1,000 face value. These bonds will mature in 13 years, and until then they will be making annual payments to their holders. The yield to maturity on these bonds is 9%. Given these bond characteristics, how much should each of these bonds be selling for in today's market? (Increase decimal places for any intermediate calculations, from the default 2 to 6 or higher. Only round your final answer to TWO decimal places: for example, 1,000.23. Do NOT use "$" in your answer.)

Answer #1

**The market value is computed as shown
below:**

**The annual coupon payment is computed as
follows:**

**= Face value x coupon rate**

= $ 1,000 x 6%

**= $ 60**

**So, the value of the bond will be computed as
follows:**

**Bonds Price = Coupon payment x [ [ (1 - 1 / (1 +
r) ^{n} ] / r ] + Par value / (1 +
r)^{n}**

= $ 60 x [ [ (1 - 1 / (1 + 0.09)^{13} ] / 0.09 ] + $
1,000 / 1.09^{13}

= $ 60 x 7.486903924 + $ 326.1786469

**= $ 775.39 Approximately**

A large corporation would like to borrow a large amount of money
for its new expansion project. Instead of asking for a bank loan,
it decided to borrow in the open market by selling a large number
of corporate bonds. The price received from selling each bond

number of years.
And so the corporation has just issued 6 percent coupon bonds
