Client Profile Case to be resolved
: Annie Hegg
Student(Major: Finance)
Annie Hegg has been considering investing in the bonds of Atilier Industries. The bonds wereissued 5 years ago at their $1000 per value and have exactly 25 years remaining until they mature.They have an 8% coupon interest rate, are convertible into 50 shares of common stock, and can be
called any time at $1080.the bond is rated Aa by Moody’s. Atilier Industries, a manufacturer of
sporting goods, recently acquired a small athletic-wear company that was in financial distress. As
a result of the acquisition, Moody’s and other rating agencies are considering a rating change for
Atilier bonds. Recent economic data suggest that the inflation, currently at 5% annually, is likely toincrease to a 6% annual rate.Annie remains interested in the Atilier bond is concerned about inflation, a potential ratingchange, and maturity risk. In order to get a feel for the potential impact of these factors on thebond value, she decided to apply the valuation techniques she learned in her financial course.Requireda. If price of the common stock into which the bond is convertible rises to $30 per share after 5years and the issuer calls the bonds at $1080, should Annie let the bond be called away from hershould she convert it into common stock?
b. For each of the following required returns, calculate the bond’s value, assuming annual interest.
Indicate whether the bond will sell at a discount, at a premium or at par value.1) Required return is 6%2) Required return is 8%3) Required return is 10%c. Repeat the calculation in part b, assuming that interest is paid semiannually and that thesemiannual required returns are one-half of those shown. Compare and discuss differencesbetween the bond values for each required return calculated here and in part b under the annualversus semiannual payment assumption.d. If Annie strongly believes that inflation will rise by 1% during the next 6 months, what is themost she should pay for the bond, assuming annual interest?
e. If the Atilier bonds are down rated by Moody’s from Aa to A, and if such a rating change will
result in an increase in the required return from 8% to 8.75%, what impact will this have on thebond value, assuming annual interest?f. If Annie buys the bond today at its $1000 per value and holds it for exactly 3 years, at whichtime the required return is 7%, how much of a gain or loss will she experience in the value of thebond (ignoring interest already received and semiannual interest)?g. Rework part f, assuming that Annie holds the bond for 10 years and sells it when the required
return is 7%. Compare your finding to that in part f, and comment on the bond’s maturity risk.
 h. Assume that Annie buys the bond at its current closing price of 98.38 and holds it untilmaturity. What will her yield to maturity (YTM) be assuming annual interest?i. After evaluating all of the issues rose above, what recommendation would you give Annie withregard to her proposed investment in the Atilier Industries bonds?
