A corporation is planning to sell $5M worth (face value) of 10 year bonds to finance a major expansion. They intend to sell 2,500 bonds with a face value of $2,000. They will give 10% interest (of the face value of the bonds) payable annually at the end of each of the 10 years. At the end of 10 years, in addition to the interest, they will pay each of the bond holders the face value of the bond. What can they expect to receive for the bonds (i.e. the selling price) if investors expect to earn 12% on their investment before taxes?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 4, 2020, 12:03 am ad1c9bdddf
Annual Interest =C=10% of face value=2000*10%=$200
Number of interest payments=n=10
