Call premium: $50 Old rate: 12.0%
Flotation cost per bond: $10 Years to maturity: 15
Amount of issue: $5,000,000 Number of bonds: 5,000
Par value of bonds: $1,000
Cost of refunding:
Call premium per bond * number of bonds = $250,000
Flotation cost = $10 * Number of bonds issued = $ 50,000
Total investment outlay: $300,000
Interest on old bond per year = Old rate * Amount = $600,000
If the company does not call the bonds, it will have to pay $600,000 per year for 15 years, plus $5,000,000 at Year 15. If it goes ahead and calls the bonds, it will have to pay $300,000 + $5,000,000 = $5,300,000 today. We can find the discount rate that equates these cash flows. Here is the time line:
0 1 2 3 ... 15
−300000 $600,000 $600,000 $600,000 $ 600,000
−5300000 600000 600000 600000 $5,600,000
If you enter these cash flows in the cash flow register of a calculator and then press the IRR key, you will get the breakeven rate, which is 11.1583%, rounded to 11.16%. You can do the same thing with Excel. Note that the annual savings at this lower rate would be (0.12 − 0.111583) × $5,000,000 = $42,084.78. The PV of that amount, discounted back for 15 years at 11.16%, is $300,000.
Rainier Bros. has 12.0% semiannual coupon bonds outstanding that mature in 10 years. Each
bond is now eligible to be called at a call price of $1,060. If the bonds are called, the company
must replace them with new 10-year bonds. The flotation cost of issuing new bonds is estimated to be $45 per bond. How low would the yield to maturity on the new bonds have to be in order for it to be profitable to call the bonds today, i.e., what is the nominal annual "breakeven rate"?
4. a. Someone in the 36 percent tax bracket can earn 9 percent annually on her investments
in a tax-exempt IRA account. What will be the value of a one-time $10,000 investment
in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
b. Suppose the preceding 9 percent return is taxable rather than tax-deferred and the taxes
are paid annually. What will be the after-tax value of her $10,000 investment after 5, 10,
and 20 years?
