net the company $54 a share. Stockholders required rate of return

- How much of the new equity funds needed will be generated internally and externally?

Answer #1

Answer to Question 1:

Face Value = $1,000

Current Price = $1,104

Annual Coupon Rate = 7.00%

Semiannual Coupon Rate = 3.50%

Semiannual Coupon = 3.50% * $1,000

Semiannual Coupon = $35

Time to Maturity = 8 years

Semiannual Period to Maturity = 16

Let Semiannual YTM be i%

$1,104 = $35 * PVIFA(i%, 16) + $1,000 * PVIF(i%, 16)

Using financial calculator:

N = 16

PV = -1104

PMT = 35

FV = 1000

I = 2.69%

Semiannual YTM = 2.69%

Annual YTM = 2 * 2.69%

Annual YTM = 5.38%
