The conversion ratio is 20, and the company's common stock is selling for $41 per share. Interest is paid semiannually.
a. What is the conversion value?
b. If similar bonds, which are not convertible, are currently yielding 12 percent, what is the pure bond value of this convertible bond? (Use semiannual analysis as described in Chapter 10.)
Pure bond value and change in interests
8 - In problem 7, if the interest rate on similar bonds, which are not convertible, goes up from 12 percent to 14 percent, what will be the new pure bond value of the Hilgers bonds? Assume the Hilgers bonds have the same coupon rate of 9 percent as described in problem 7, and that 25 years remain to maturity. Use semiannual analysis.

3. If the common stock price goes down to $22.50 and the conversion premium goes up to $100, what will be the new current yield on the bond?
