Dan has entered intodiscussions with Robin Perry, an underwriter from the firm of Crowe & Mallard, aboutwhich bond features East Coast Yachts should consider and also what coupon rate theissue will likely have. Although Dan is aware of bond features, he is uncertain as to thecosts and benefits of some features, so he isn’t clear on how each feature would affect thecoupon rate of the bond issue.1.

How many of the coupon bonds must East Coast Yachts issue to raise the $30 million?How many of the zeroes must it issue?3. In 20 years, what will be the principal repayment due if East Coast Yachts issues thecoupon bonds? What if it issues the zeroes?4.
