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

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:
