(Hint: A warrant’s exercise value is the difference between the stock price and the purchase price specified by the warrant if the warrant were to be exercised.) 1) 20-25=-5, or 0 2) 25-25=0, so 0 3) 30-25=5, so 5 4) 100-25=75, so 75 * b.Assume the firm’s stock now sells for \$20 per share. The company wants to sell some 20-year, \$1,000 par value bonds with interest paid annually. Each bond will have attached 50 warrants, each exercisable into 1 share of stock at an exercise price of \$25. The firm’s straight bonds yield 12%. Assume that each warrant will have a market value of \$3 when the stock sells at \$20. What coupon interest rate, and dollar coupon, must the company set on the bonds with warrants if they are to clear the market? (Hint: The convertible bond should have an initial price of \$1,000.) package = 1000
1000=vb + 50*3
Vb=850

850=I*1.74694+1000*.1037
850=I * 7.6494 +103.70
746.3= I (7.4694)
I =99.91
Round that up to 100
100=.10*1000
10% coupon interest rate
\$100 dollar
