  • Dual-Currency Bonds

Straight fixed rate debt
Straight Fixed Rate Debt

  • These are “plain vanilla” ________ with a specified coupon rate and maturity and no options attached.

  • Since most Eurobonds are bearer bonds, coupon dates tend to be ________ rather than semi-annual.

Straight fixed rate debt1
Straight Fixed Rate Debt

  • Calculate the value of a 10-year 10% semi-annual coupon bond when yield to maturity for this type of bonds is rd=13%

Accrued interest
Accrued interest

  • The full price of the bond equals the quoted price Q (clean price) plus accrued interest AI.

  • The clean price of a Eurobond is Q=95, the annual coupon is 6%, and we are exactly three months from the past coupon payment. What is the full price of the bond?

Floating rate notes
Floating-Rate Notes

  • Just like an ________ rate mortgage.

  • Common reference rates are 3-month and 6-month U.S. dollar LIBOR

  • Since FRN’s reset every 6 or 12 months, the premium or discount is usually quite small…as long as there is no change in the default risk.

Floating rate notes1
Floating-Rate Notes

  • A FRN has the following coupon formula: 6-month LIBOR rate + 50 basis points with a cap of 7% and a floor of 5%. The coupon rate is reset every 6 month. Compute the coupon rates.

Floating rate notes2
Floating-Rate Notes

  • An A-rated company issues a perpetual Eurodollar FRN. The FRN has a semi-annual coupon rate set at 6-month LIBOR plus a spread of 0.5%. Six months later, LIBOR is 6% and the default spread for A-rated bonds moved to 1%. What is the estimated value of the FRN on the reset date if we assume no further changes in LIBOR? (so-called “freeze method”).
