Unformatted text preview: s were initially sold for their \$1,000 par value. When issued, similar-risk straight bonds were selling to yield a 12% rate of return. The straight value of the bond would be the present value of its payments discounted at the 12% yield on similar-risk straight bonds. Year(s) Payments (1) Present value interest factor at 12% (2) Present valuea [(1) (2)] (3) 1–20 \$ 105b 7.469c \$784 20 1,000 aFor 0.104d 104 Straight bond valuee \$888 convenience, these values have been rounded to the nearest \$1. b\$1,000 at 10.5% \$105 interest per year. cPresent value interest factor for an annuity, PVIFA, discounted at 12% for 20 years, from Table A–4. dPresent value interest factor for \$1, PVIF, discounted at 12% for year 20, from Table A–2. eThe value calculated by using a financial calculator and rounding to the nearest \$1 is also \$888. Substituting the \$1,000 price of the bond with warrants attached and the \$888 straight bond value into Equation 16.1, we get an implied price of all warrants of \$112: Implied price of all warrants \$1,000 \$888 \$112 Dividing the implied price of all warrants by the number of warrants attached to each bond—20 in this case—we find the implied price of each warrant: Impl...
