9/1/2014 UNDERSTANDING HEALTHCARE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT Chapter 6 — Debt Financing PROBLEM 1 Assume Venture Healthcare sold bonds that have a ten-year maturity, a 12 percent coupon rate with annual payments, and a \$1,000 par value. a. Suppose that two years after the bonds were issued, the required interest rate fell to 7 percent. What would be the bond’s value? b. Suppose that two years after the bonds were issued, the required interest rate rose to 13 percent. What would be the bond’s value? c. What would be the value of the bonds three years after issue in each scenario above, assuming that interest rates stayed steady at either 7 percent or 13 percent? ANSWER UNDERSTANDING HEALTHCARE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT Chapter 6 — Debt Financing PROBLEM 2 Twin Oaks Health Center has a bond issue outstanding with a coupon rate of 7 percent and four years remaining until maturity. The par value of the bond is \$1,000, and the bond pays interest annually. a. Determine the current value of the bond if present market conditions justify a 14 percent required rate of return. b. Now, suppose Twin Oaks’ four-year bond had semiannual coupon payments. What would be its current value? (Assume a 7 percent semiannual required rate of return. However, the actual rate would be slightly less than 7 percent because a semiannual bond is slightly less risky than an annual coupon bond.) c. Assume that Twin Oaks’ bond had a semiannual coupon but 20 years remaining to maturity. What is the current value under these conditions? (Again, assume a 7 percent semiannual required rate of return, although the actual rate would probably be greater than 7 percent because of increased price risk.)
