Course: Financial Management Term: III Section A Attempt all questions Each question carries 6 marks [5 x 6 =30] 1. You have to pay \$12,000 a year in school fees at the end of each of the next six years. If the interest rate is 8%, how much do you need to set aside today to cover these bills? [3] Answer: Find out the PV of \$ 12,000 as 6 years annuity. Answer – \$ Rs 55476 You have invested \$60,476 at 8%. After paying the above school fees, how much would remain at the end of the six years? [3] Answer: \$ 60,476 and \$ 55476 are at the same point of time and hence law of subtraction applies Difference is \$ 5,000. Find out the FV of \$ 5000 after 6 years. Answer - \$ 7934.37 2. Jill has \$40,000 on hand and expects her income next year to be \$48,000. She would like to consume \$50,000 today by borrowing the additional \$10,000 from a bank at the market rate of 20%. A friend, however, suggests that she should instead borrow \$15,000 from the bank and invest the additional \$5,000 in an investment project that will return \$12,000 in one year. The friend believes that this will make Jill better off. What should Jill do? Answer: If Jill borrows \$10,000 at 20 % to satisfy her consumption plan, then next year she will pay back \$12,000 (=\$10,000 × 1.20) and have \$36,000 (=\$48,000 - \$12,000) to consume. On the other hand, if she follows her friend's advise and borrows \$15,000 and invests \$5,000 in the project, then next year she will pay back \$18,000 (=\$15,000×1.20) and will be able to consume \$42,000 (=\$48,000 + \$12,000 - \$18,000). Thus, by investing in the project Jill can consume the same today and an additional \$6,000 next year. 3. A 10 year, 12 % semiannual coupon bond, with a par value of Rs 1,000 may be called in 4 years at a call price of Rs 1,060. The bond sells for Rs 1,100 (Assume that the bond has just been issued) a) What is the bond’s approx YTM ? [2] b) What is the bond’s current yield? [1] c) What is the bond’s capital gain or loss yield? [1] d) What is the bond’s approx yield to call? [2] 1 | P a g e

Answer: a) + + = 3 2P M n P - M C YTM Approx to get AYTM = 10.31% b) Current Yield = C / P = 120/1100 = 10.91%. Or find out semiannual current yield by using C = 60 and later multiplying the rate by 2 to make it annual. c) Capital Gain/Loss Yield = YTM – Current Yield = 10.31% - 10.91% = (0.79%) Loss. Capital gain or loss yield should also be always reported on annual form. d) + + = 3 2P price Call n P - Price Call C YTC Approx = 10.12% Alternatively, you can find YTM by using semiannual data, C = 60, n = 20 and then report the answer in annual form by multiplying the semiannual YTM by 2. Same can be done in case of YTC using C= 60, n = 8 and them multiplying the rate by 2 to make it annual percentage rate.
