A convertion option on bonds act like call option on the stock
First we will calculate straight Value of the bond
Coupon is 7% yield to maturity is 8%
Time to maturity is 9 years
Straight Value of bond is
70(PVIFA 8% 9Y) + 1000/(1.08)^9
= 70( 6.2469) + 500.248
= 937.53
But the bond currently selling for 1062
So value of implicit call option is
1062-937.53 = 124.46
Convertion value of bonds is 80×13 =1040
The bond is selling more than the convertion premium and it is due to further possibility of incerses in share price
