  8. Borrowing in Foreign currencies
    • When a company has operations in a foreign country, it often borrows in the local currency. This reduces exchange rate risk.
    • Because interest rates vary from country to country, companies may borrow in the foreign market with the lowest interest rate.
  9. Working Capital

    Changes in working capital accounts affect cash flows as indicated in the following table.
  10. Liquidity

    • Measure of liquidity.
  12. Compounding within a year
    • Dealing with time periods other than one year, when the amount of time is stated in terms of an annual rate:
    • n= number of years x compounding periods in one year
    • i= annual interest rate / compounding periods in one year
  13. Future Value of a Lump Sum
    • P= amount today
    • Fn= amount after n years
    • i= interest rate per number of time periods
    • n= number of time periods

    • Fn= P x (1+i) ^N
    • table A.3
  14. Present Value of a Lump Sum
    • P= Fn / (1+i) ^n
    • table A.1
  15. Annuities
    • An annuity is made up of equal cash flows at equal intervals. Many rental payments and mortgage payments are annuities.

  19. Future Value of Annuity

    • Table A.4
  20. Face Value
    The amount the bond promises to pay the holder at maturity.
  21. Stated Rate, Coupon Rate
    Multiplied by the face value, it determines the cash paid by the issuer at regular time intervals, usually semi-annually.
  22. Market Rate, Price to Yield x%
    • The market rate will be the discount rate used in the issuance present value calculation.
    • MIR- current rate of interest on a debt when incurred.
  23. Bond Premium Case

    • Stated Rate > Market rate
    • Price > Face Value
  24. Bond Discount Case
    • The difference between the selling price and par when the bond is sold for less than par.
    • Stated Rate< Market Rate
    • Price < Face Value
  25. Bond Trading
    Bond market values are expressed as a percent of their par value.
  26. Bond issued at Par
    • Stated Rate = Market Rate
    • Price = Face Value
  27. Advantages of Bonds
    • Bonds do not affect owner control.
    • Interest on bonds is tax deductible.
    • Bonds can increase return on equity.
  28. Disadvantages of Bonds
    • Bonds can decrease return on equity when the company pays more in interest that it earns on the borrowed funds.
    • Bonds require payment of both periodic interest and par value at maturity.
  29. Key Ratio

  47. Straight Line Amortization- Issued at Discount
    • Simplified method of amortizing a bond discount or premium that allocates an equal dollar amount to each interest period.
    • Divide the difference between the issue bond and the bonds payable by the number of periods.
    • Each period the book value will now be increased by this amount.
    • More companies use this.
  48. Effective Interest Method- Issued at Discount
    • Amortizes a bond discount or premium on the basis of the effective interest rate; it is the theoretically preferred method.
    • A. (Bond Amount X % X 1/2)
