Recently, Ohio Hospitals Inc. filed for bankruptcy. The firm was reorganized as American Hospitals Inc., and the court permitted a new indenture on an outstanding bond issue to be put into effect. The issue has 10 years to maturity and an annual coupon rate of 10%. The new agreement allows the firm to pay no interest for 5 years. Then, interest payments will be resumed for the next 5 years. Finally, at maturity (Year 10), the principal plus the interest that was not paid during the first 5 years will be paid. However, no interest will be paid on the deferred interest. If the required annual return is 20%, what should the bonds sell for in the market today?
