3 (c) Mikhail Pevzner and George Mason University Stated vs. market interest rate • Bonds consist of two cash flows: – coupon payments measured by stated interest rate (aka coupon rate ), i.e. amount of cash payable in addition to principal payments, – and of the principal payment ; (c) Mikhail Pevzner and George Mason University Bond Valuation • Bond represents two types of cash payments: – Principal payment; – Interest payments; • Thus, a bond cash flow is a combination of one time payment and an annuity. (c) Mikhail Pevzner and George Mason University Bond Valuation (continued) • To find a value of a bond at the time of issuance, we need to: – Discount the principal payment back from the repayment date to issuance date using market discount (aka effective market) rate; – Compute present value of the stream of coupon payments (annuity) using effective market rate of interest.

4 (c) Mikhail Pevzner and George Mason University Example • On January 1, 2007 MBP issues bonds with face value of $1 million, stated (coupon) interest rate of 10%. Bonds mature in 10 years. Interest is payable in the end of every year. What is the value of a bond if market interest rate is – A) 8% – B) 10% – C) 12%? (c) Mikhail Pevzner and George Mason University Example-Case A • Our bond is composed of two cash flows: – 1) lump sum principal payment of $1 million and – 2) ordinary annuity of 10 coupon payments of $100,000. • Thus, we need to estimate present values of – Lump-sum of $1 million in 10 years at 10% assumed market discount rate of 8% : $1 million/(1+0.08) 10 =$463,194 – Ordinary annuity of 10 payments of $100K per year, discounted at market interest rate of 8%. Checking the annuity table shows that our annuity factor is 6.71. Thus, present value of interest payments is $671,000. – Hence, the total value of a bond is
