- Type of debt or long-term promissory note, issued by a borrower, promising to its holder a predetermined and fixed amount of interest per year.

- Debentures
- Subordinated Debentures
- Mortgage Bonds
- Eurobonds
- Zero and Very Low Coupon Bonds
- Junk Bonds (High-Yield Bonds)

- Any unsecured long-term debt
- Viewed as more risky than secured bonds and provide a higher yield than secured bonds

- Hierarchy of payout in case of insolvency
- The claims of subordinated debentures are honored only after the claims of secured debt and unsubordinated debentures have been satisfied.

- A bond secured by a lien on real property
- Typically, the value of the real property is greater than that of the bonds issued.

- Securities (bonds) issued in a country different from the one in whose currency the bond is denominated

- Issued at a substantial discount from the $1,000 face value with a zero or very low coupon rate.
- Return comes from appreciation of the bond

- High risk debt with ratings of BB or below by Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s
- High yield — typically pay 3%-5% more than AAA grade long-term bonds

- Convertible bond – may be exchanged for common stock of the firm, at the holder’s option.
- Warrant – long-term option to buy a stated number of shares of common stock at a specified price.
- Putable bond – allows holder to sell the bond back to the company prior to maturity.
- Income bond – pays interest only when interest is earned by the firm.
- Indexed bond – interest rate paid is based upon the rate of inflation.

- Claims on assets and income
- Par value
- Current yield
- Coupon interest rate
- Maturity
- Convertibility
- Call provision
- Indenture
- Bond ratings
- Sinking fund

- In the case of insolvency, claims of debt, including bonds are honored before those of common or preferred stock.

- Face value of the bond, returned to the bondholder at maturity
- In general, corporate bonds are issued at denominations of $1,000.
- Prices are represented as a % of face value.

- The percentage of the par value of the bond that will be paid out annually in the form of interest.

- The length of time until the bond issuer returns the par value to the bondholder and terminates or redeems the bond.

- May allow the investor to exchange the bond for a predetermined number of the firm’s shares of common stock

- A provision such that if the prevailing interest rate declines, the firm may want to pay off the bonds early and reissue at a more favorable interest rate.
- Issuer must pay the bondholders a premium
- There is also a call protection period where the firm cannot call the bond for a specified period of time.

- The legal agreement between the firm issuing the bond and the trustee who represents the bondholders
- Provides for specific terms of the loan agreement

- Bonds are rated by the future risk potential of the bond-default risk
- The poorer the bond rating, the higher the rate of return demanded by the capital markets.

Three agencies rate bonds:

- Moody’s
- Standard & Poor’s

- A greater reliance on equity as opposed to debt in financing the firm
- Profitable operations
- Low variability in past earnings
- Large firm size
- Minimal use of subordinated debt

- AAA is the highest rating assigned by Standard & Poor’s
- AAA indicates a strong capacity to pay principal and interest

- Provision to pay off a loan over its life rather than all at maturity.
- Similar to amortization on a term loan.
- Reduces risk to investor, shortens average maturity.
- But not good for investors if rates decline after issuance.

- Book value: value of an asset as shown on a firm’s balance sheet
- Liquidation value: the dollar sum that could be realized if an asset were sold individually and not as part of a going concern.
- Market value: the observed value for the asset in the marketplace
- Intrinsic or economic value: also called fair value—the present value of the asset’s expected future cash flows

- The values of all securities at any instant fully reflect all available public information, which results in the market and the intrinsic value being the same.

- Assigning a value to an asset by calculating the present value of its expected future cash flows using the investor’s required rate of return as the discount rate.

- Amount and timing of the asset’s expected cash flows to be received by the
- Riskiness of the cash flows
- Investor’s required rate of return for undertaking the investment

- The value of a bond is a combination of:
- The amount and timing of the cash flows to be received by investors
- The time to maturity of the loan
- The investor’s required rate of return

- What would happen to the value of this bond if its required rate of return remained at 10%, or at 13%, or at 7% until maturity?

- At maturity, the value of any bond must equal its par value.
- If kd remains constant:
- The value of a premium bond would decrease over time, until it reached $1,000.
- The value of a discount bond would increase over time, until it reached $1,000.
- A value of a par bond stays at $1,000.

- To measure the bondholder’s expected rate of return, we would find the discount rate that equates the present value of the future cash flows with the current market price of the bond.
- YTM and expected rate of return are used interchangeably when referring to bonds.

- Must find the kd that solves this model.

- Solving for I/YR, the YTM of this bond is 10.91%. This bond sells at a discount, because YTM > coupon rate.

- The market value of a bond will be below the par or face when the investor’s required rate is greater than the coupon interest rate. The bond will sell at a discount or below face value.

- The market value of a bond will be above the par or face value when the investor’s required rate is lower than the coupon interest rate. The bond will sell at a premium or above face value.

- The value of a bond is inversely related to changes in the investor’s present required rate of return (the current interest rate).
- As interest rates increase(decrease), the value of the bond decreases(increases).

- The market value of a bond will be less than the par value if the investor’s required rate of return is above the coupon interest rate, but it will be valued above par value if the investor’s required rate of return is below the coupon interest rate.

- Long-term bonds have greater interest rate risk than do short-term bonds.

- Find the current yield and the capital gains yield for a 10-year, 9% annual coupon bond that sells for $887, and has a face value of $1,000.
Current yield = $90 / $887

= 0.1015 = 10.15%

YTM = Current yield + Capital gains yield

CGY= YTM – CY

= 10.91% - 10.15%

= 0.76%

Could also find the expected price one year from now and divide the change in price by the beginning price, which gives the same answer.

- Interest rate risk is the concern that rising kd will cause the value of a bond to fall.

-4.4% $95615%$749 -25.1%

The 10-year bond is more sensitive to interest rate changes, and hence has more interest rate risk.

- Reinvestment rate risk is the concern that kd will fall, and future CFs will have to be reinvested at lower rates, hence reducing income.
EXAMPLE: Suppose you just won

$500,000 playing the lottery. You

intend to invest the money and

live off the interest.

- You may invest in either a 10-year bond or a series of ten 1-year bonds. Both 10-year and 1-year bonds currently yield 10%.
- If you choose the 1-year bond strategy:
- After Year 1, you receive $50,000 in income and have $500,000 to reinvest. But, if 1-year rates fall to 3%, your annual income would fall to $15,000.

- If you choose the 10-year bond strategy:
- You can lock in a 10% interest rate, and $50,000 annual income.

- CONCLUSION: Nothing is riskless!

- Multiply years by 2 : number of periods = 2n.
- Divide nominal rate by 2 : periodic rate (I/YR) = kd / 2.
- Divide annual coupon by 2 : PMT = ann cpn / 2.

The semiannual bond’s effective rate is:

10.25% > 10% (the annual bond’s effective rate), so you would prefer the semiannual bond.

- The bond’s yield to maturity can be determined to be 8%. Solving for the YTC is identical to solving for YTM, except the time to call is used for N and the call premium is FV.

- The coupon rate = 10% compared to YTC = 7.137%. The firm could raise money by selling new bonds which pay 7.137%.
- Could replace bonds paying $100 per year with bonds paying only $71.37 per year.
- Investors should expect a call, and to earn the YTC of 7.137%, rather than the YTM of 8%.

- In general, if a bond sells at a premium, then (1) coupon > kd, so (2) a call is more likely.
- So, expect to earn:
- YTC on premium bonds.
- YTM on par & discount bonds.
