B0 $100 (PVIFA10%,10yrs) $1,000 (PVIF10%,10yrs)
$100 (6.145) $1,000 (0.386)
$614.50 $386.00 $1,000.50 The bond therefore has a value of approximately $1,000.13 12. The payment of annual rather than semiannual bond interest is assumed throughout the following discussion.
This assumption simplifies the calculations involved, while maintaining the conceptual accuracy of the valuation
procedures presented.
13. Note that a slight rounding error ($0.50) results here from the use of the table factors, which are rounded to the

10 Important Financial Concepts Function
N 10 I 100 PMT Calculator Use Using the Mills Company’s inputs shown at the left, you should
find the bond value to be exactly $1,000. Note that the calculated bond value is
equal to its par value; this will always be the case when the required return is
equal to the coupon interest rate.14 FV 1000 CPT Bond Value Behavior PV

In bond quotations (see Figure 6.4), the closing prices of bonds often differ from
their par values of 100 (100 percent of par). Some bonds are valued below par
(quoted below 100), and others are valued above par (quoted above 100). A variety of forces in the economy, as well as the passage of time, tend to affect value.
Although these external forces are in no way controlled by bond issuers or
investors, it is useful to understand the impact that required return and time to
maturity have on bond value. Required Returns and Bond Values discount
