Question

Jiminy’s Cricket Farm issued a bond with 25 years to maturity and a semiannual coupon rate of 4 percent 3 years ago. The bond currently sells for 108 percent of its face value. The company’s tax rate is 22 percent. |

What is the pretax cost of debt? What is the aftertax cost of debt? |

Answer #1

K = Nx2 |

Bond Price =∑ [(Semi Annual Coupon)/(1 + YTM/2)^k] + Par value/(1 + YTM/2)^Nx2 |

k=1 |

K =22x2 |

1080 =∑ [(4*1000/200)/(1 + YTM/200)^k] + 1000/(1 + YTM/200)^22x2 |

k=1 |

YTM% = 3.48 = pretax cost |

After tax rate = YTM * (1-Tax rate) |

After tax rate = 3.48 * (1-0.22) |

After tax rate = 2.71 |
