9-9

(Cost of dept) Sincere Stationery Corporation needs to raise \$500,000 to improve its manufacturing plant. It has decided to issue a \$1,000 par value bond with a 14 percent annual coupon rate and a 10 year maturity. The investors require a 9 percent rate of return.

a. Compute the market value of the bonds.

 PMT 140 NPER 10 FV 1000 Rate 9.00% Value \$1,320.88

b. What will the net price be if flotation costs are 10.5 percent of the market price?

Net Price = 1320.88*(1-.105) =\$1182.19

c. How many bonds will the firm have to issue to receive the needed funds?

Number of Bonds = 500000/1182.19 = 423 Bonds

d. What is the firm’s after-tax cost of debt if its average tax rate is 25 percent and its marginal tax rate is 34 percent?

 PV 1182.89 PMT 140 NPER 10 FV 1000 Rate (Annual) 10.91%

After tax Cost = 10.91*(1-.34) = 7.20%

a. rework problem as follows: Assume an 8 percent coupon rate. What effect does changing the coupon rate have on the firm's after tax cost of capital?

a) Compute the market value of the bonds.

 PMT 80 NPER 10 FV 1000 Rate 9.00% Value \$935.82

b. What will the net price be if flotation costs are 10.5 percent of the market price?

Net Price = 935.82*(1-.105) =\$837.56

c.How many bonds will the firm have to issue to receive the needed funds?

Number of Bonds = 500000/837.56 = 597 Bonds

d. What is the firm’s after-tax cost of debt if its average tax rate is 25 percent and its marginal tax rate is 34 percent?

 PV 837.56 PMT 80 NPER 10 FV 1000 Rate (Annual) 10.73%

After Tax cost of Debt = 10.73*(1-.34) = 7.08%

b. Why is there a change?

The after tax cost of debt decrease because of lower flotation cost since the value of bond is low.
