Seven years ago the Templeton Company issued 18-year bonds with a 12% annual coupon rate at their $1,000 par
value. The bonds had a 7% call premium, with 5 years of call protection. Today Templeton called the bonds. Compute the realized rate of return for an investor who purchased the bonds when they were issued and held them until they were called. Round your answer to two decimal places.
Why should or should not the investor be happy that Templeton called them?
