Interest Rates and Bond Valuation

 Instructor’s Resources
Overview
This chapter begins with a thorough discussion of interest rates, yield curves, and their relationship to
required returns. Features of the major types of bond issues are presented along with their legal issues, risk
characteristics, and indenture convents. The chapter then introduces students to the important concept of
valuation and demonstrates the impact of cash flows, timing, and risk on value. It explains models for
valuing bonds and the calculation of yield-to-maturity using either an approximate yield formula or
calculator. Students learn how interest rates may affect their ability to borrow and expand business
operations or assets under personal control.

 Suggested Answers to Opener in Review Questions
a. With short-term interest rates near 0 percent in 2010, suppose the Treasury decided to replace
maturing notes and bonds by issuing new Treasury bills, thus shortening the average maturity of
U.S. debt outstanding. Discuss the pros and cons of this strategy.

The U.S. Treasury would face many of the same considerations as those faced by a company that is
considering revision of its average debt maturity. Short-term rates are normally lower, reducing total
financing costs. However, if the U.S. Treasury relies on short-term rates and short-term rates rise, the
cost of financing the federal debt could end up being higher. Even more serious is the risk that the U.S.
Treasury may not be able to find buyers of new Treasury bills when old Treasury bills mature.
According to market segmentation theory, there is a limited amount of demand for short-term
securities. Excessive short-term demand might push up the cost of seasonal business loans higher,
hindering business and tax revenues.

Another concern that the U.S. Treasury would have to face is whether the financing adjustment would
diminish the high regard with which Treasury bills are held. Currently, Treasury bills are as close as we
can get to a risk-free rate in the real world. If the amount of short-term financing becomes excessive,
the ability of the federal government to make good on its short-term repayment promises may come
into question, no longer make it a “risk-free” surrogate, and increase Treasury bill rates.

b. The average maturity of outstanding U.S. Treasury debt is about 5 years. Suppose a newly issued
5-year Treasury note has a coupon rate of 2 percent and sells for par. What happens to the value
of this debt if the inflation rate rises 1 percentage point, causing the yield-to-maturity on the 5-
year note to jump to 3 percent shortly after it is issued?

This theory states that long-term rates are generally higher than short-term rates due to the desire of investors for greater liquidity. For a given class of securities. If supply is greater than demand for short-term funds at a time when demand for long-term loans is higher than the supply of funding. thereby reducing the nominal rate of interest by an amount that brings the return into line with the after-tax return on a taxable issue of similar risk. In the Fisher equation. the reverse also holds true. 5. An upward-sloping curve is the result of increasing inflationary expectations.

A financial manager must understand the valuation process in order to judge the value of benefits received from stocks. borrower risk. Violation of any of the standard or restrictive loan provisions gives the lender the right to demand immediate repayment of both accrued interest and principal of the loan. For example. The restrictive provisions (also called negative covenants) differ from the so-called standard debt provisions in that they place certain constraints on the firm’s operations. a dollar-denominated Eurobond issued by an American corporation can be sold to French. the lender does not normally demand immediate repayment but instead evaluates the situation in order to determine if the violation is serious enough to jeopardize the loan. return. in the case of convertibles.

The valuation process applies to assets that provide an intermittent cash flow or even a single cash flow over any time period. Inc. b. © 2012 Pearson Education. The disparity between the required rate and the coupon rate will cause the bond to be sold at a discount or premium. The value of any asset is the PV of future cash flows expected from the asset over the relevant time period. Required return—the interest rate used to discount the future cash flows to a PV.106 Gitman/Zutter • Principles of Managerial Finance. whereas the required return fluctuates with shifts in the cost of long-term funds due to economic conditions and/or risk of the issuing firm. The selection of the required return allows the level of risk to be adjusted. and c. The equation for value is: CF1 CF2 CFn V0 = + + (1 + r ) (1 + r ) 1 2 (1 + r )n where: V0 = value of the asset at time zero CF1 = cash flow expected at the end of year t r = appropriate required return (discount rate) n = relevant time period 16. Timing—the time period(s) in which cash flows are received. The number of years to maturity must be multiplied by two. and the timing of cash flows. The three key inputs in the valuation process are cash flows. the higher the required return (discount rate). Thirteenth Edition 13. the basic bond valuation equation is adjusted as follows to account for the more frequent payment of interest: a. The annual interest must be converted to semiannual interest by dividing by two. 14.

A bond sells at par value when the required return equals the coupon rate. the required rate of return. A bond sells at a premium when the required return is less than the coupon rate. b. c. The coupon rate is generally a fixed rate of interest. 15. The required return must be converted to a semiannual rate by dividing it by two.

There are several reasons for this conclusion. Under all three required returns for both annual and semiannual interest payments the bonds are consistent in their direction of pricing. thus driving the price down. N = 50.000 Solve for PV = $1. The value of the bond would decline to $924. PV = $1.

 Group Exercise Group exercises are available on www. Using the current yield on a comparable Treasury. any recent filing will suffice. the risk premium can then be calculated. This chapter is concerned with credit ratings. © 2012 Pearson Education. Each group is asked to use current information from their shadow firm to flesh out the details for their fictitious firm. as this is the firm they will be living with for another two months. The first lesson students will learn is the lack of transparency in the bond market. Since a recent debt issuance is needed the assignment can be redirected from publicly-accessed websites to the most recent filings with the SEC. For many firms there will be multiple offerings. Publishing as Prentice Hall . however the details of the project are entirely up to the discretion of the group. particularly when compared to the stock market. Each group is asked to retrieve the interest rate of a recent debt issuance. Students should be encouraged to get creative. The final step for the group is to address a potential capital investment.com. Inc.com/irc under the Instructor’s Manual. Students should realize the same firm can be given different ratings on different offerings according to each offering’s covenants. The interest rate will be derived from the information of the shadow firm.myfinancelab. This information on rates is then combined with the credit rating of the offering. The steps for the assignment are very straightforward.
