Twin Oaks Health Center has a bond issue outstanding with a coupon rate of 7% and four years remaining until maturity. The par value of the bond is $1,000, and the bond pays interest annually.

a) Determine the current value of the bond if present market conditions justify a 14% required rate of return.

b) Supposing Twin Oaks's four-year bond had semiannual coupon payments. What would be its current value? (Assume a 7% semiannual rate of return. However, the actual rate would be slightly less than 7% because a semiannual coupon bond is slightly less risky than an annual coupon.)

c) Assuming that Twin Oak' bond had a semiannual coupon but 20 years remaining to maturity. What is the current value under these conditions? (Assume a 7% semiannual rate of return. However, the actual rate would be slightly less than 7%, although the actual rate would probably be greater than 7% because of increased price risk.)

Please refer attached file for solution in MS Excel.

a) Determine the current value of the bond if present market conditions justify a 14% required rate of return.
Maturity amount=M=$1000
Coupon Amount=1000*7%=$70
Number of coupon payments left=n=4
Required rate of return=r=14%

Current price of bond=C/r*(1-1/(1+r)^n)+M/(1+r)^n
=70/14%*(1-1/(1+14%)^4)+1000/(1+14%)^4
...

Please help me figure out how to do this practice assignment. I only have 3 hours to learn it before I take an exam that covers similar material. Thanks. The questions are about cost of equity, CAPM and bond premium method.

Once you have the revenue and cost data, you can determine the MR and the MC.
How would you estimate the revenue and cost data? Use historical information?
