Calculate the value of bond D shown in the following table, all of which pay interest semiannually. <image 1> | The correct answer is $1,245.99. First, calculate the semiannual coupon payment: $1,000 x 14% / 2 =$70 Next, calculate the number of semiannual periods: 10 years x 2 = 20 periods Then, calculate the present value of the coupon payments using the formula: PV = C x [1 - (1 + r)^-n] / r where: C = semiannual coupon payment r = semiannual interest rate n = number of semiannual periods PV = $70 x [1 - (1 + 0.10 / 2)^-20] / 0.10 / 2 PV =$70 x [1 - (1.05)^-20] / 0.05 PV = $70 x [1 - 0.37689] / 0.05 PV =$70 x 0.62311 / 0.05 PV = $872.35 Finally, calculate the present value of the bond: PV of bond = PV of coupon payments + PV of principal PV of bond = $872.35 +$1,000 PV of bond = $1,872.35 Therefore, the value of bond D is $1,872.35.

Dozier Corporation is a fast-growing supplier of office products. Analysts project the following free cash flows (FCFs) during the next 3 years, after which FCF is expected to grow at a constant 7% rate. Dozier's weighted average cost of capital is WACC = 13%. <image 1> What is the current value of operations for Dozier? | The current value of operations for Dozier is $149.1 million. To calculate this, we need to discount the projected FCFs back to the present at the WACC of 13%. The formula for the present value of a growing perpetuity is: PV = FCF / (WACC - g) Where: PV is the present value FCF is the free cash flow WACC is the weighted average cost of capital g is the growth rate In this case, the FCFs are -$20 million,$30 million, and $40 million for years 1, 2, and 3, respectively. The WACC is 13%, and the growth rate is 7%. Plugging these values into the formula, we get: PV = -$20 million / (0.13 - 0.07) +$30 million / (1.13)^2 + $40 million / (1.13)^3 PV = -$20 million / 0.06 + $30 million / 1.469 +$40 million / 1.610 PV = -$333.3 million +$20.4 million + $24.8 million PV = -$288.1 million This is the current value of operations for Dozier.
