Midland Chemical Co is negotiating a loan from Manhattan Bank and Trust. The small chemical company needs to borrow $500,000. The bank offers a rate of 8¼ percent with a 20 percent compensating balance requirement, or as an alternative, 9¾ percent with additional fees of $5,500 to cover services the bank is providing. In either case the rate on the loan is floating (changes as the prime interest rate changes), and the loan would be for one year.
I don't have an answer but am trying to figure out how to accomplish the amount outcomes for the loans, if any help is there I would greatly appreciate it!
