Textbook Problem

WARRANTS Gregg Company recently issued two types of bonds. The first issue consisted of 20-year straight (no warrants attached) bonds with an 8% annual coupon. The second issue consisted of 20-year bonds with a 6% annual coupon with warrants attached. Both bonds were issued at par ($1,000). What is the value of the warrants that were attached to the second issue?

Summary Introduction

To Determine: The value of warrants of the second issue.

Introduction: A warrant is securities that give the bondholder the right, yet not the obligation, to purchase a specific number of securities at a specific cost before a specific time. Warrants are not the equivalent as the call options or purchase rights of the stock.

Explanation

Determine the interest rate for the first bond issue

Using a excel spreadsheet and excel function =RATE, the interest rate for the first bond issue is determined as 8%.

Excel Spreadsheet:

Therefore the interest rate for the first bond issue is 8%.

Determine the present value of second bond issue

Since both the bonds are traded at par, the interest rate of this bond will be 8%. As the first bond issue is traded at par.

Using a excel spreadsheet and excel function =PV, the present value for the second bond issue is determined as $803.64.

Excel Spreadsheet:

Therefore the present value of second bond issue is $803.64.

Determine the value of warrants of the second issue
