The Concept of Present Value 1. Present Value of a Lump Sum a lump sum is expected to be received or paid in the future what is that amount worth in today’s dollars? to solve, you must know the following: 9 number of interest compounding periods 9 interest rate per compounding period Use the Present Value of $1 Table on pages A2 and A3 of the text Example #1 If the current rate of interest is 10% and interest is compounded semiannually, what is the present value of receiving $10,000 at the end of 7 years? There are 14 interest compounding periods (7 years x 2) The interest rate per compounding period is 5% (10%/2) Rate from the PV of $1 Table = .50507 Present Value = 10,000 * .50507 = $5,050.70 2. Present Value of an Annuity a series of equal payments or receipts will occur at equal intervals what is this series of payments or receipts worth in today’s dollars? to solve, you must know the following: 9 number of interest compounding periods 9 interest rate per compounding period Use the Present Value of an Annuity Table on pages A4 and A5 Example #2 If the current interest rate is 12% and interest is compounded semiannually, what is the present value of receiving $5,000 each year for 10 years? There are 20 compounding periods (10 years x 2) The interest rate per compounding period is 6% (12%/2) Rate from the PV of Annuity Table = 11.46992 Present Value = 5,000 * 11.46992 = $57,349.6 Practice Problem #1 a.

Accounting for Bonds Payable Calculating the Selling Price of a Bond Companies issue bonds as a means of raising capital. Companies usually pay interest to the bondholder semiannually and repay the face value of the bond at maturity. The series of interest payments represents an annuity. The repayment of face value at maturity represents a lump sum payout The selling price of a bond is calculated as: 9 The present value of the face value (lump sum) PLUS 9 The present value of the interest payments (annuity) 9 The interest rate used to calculate the present value is the current market rate Example #3 Beta Company issued $4,000,000 of 10-year, 11% bonds on January 4.
