P6–15 Basic bond valuation Complex Systems has an outstanding issue of $1,000-
par-value bonds with a 12% coupon interest rate. The issue pays interest
annually and has 16 years remaining to its maturity date.

much should the Complex Systems bond sell for today?
b. Describe the two possible reasons why similar-risk bonds are currently
earning a return below the coupon interest rate on the Complex Systems
bond.
c. If the required return were at 12% instead of 10%, what would the current
value of Complex Systems’ bond be? Contrast this finding with your findings
in part a and discuss.
