Was wondering if you could help me with this quick exam question, cannot understand the answer, please. A co has 7% loan notes in issue redeemable in 7 years at 5% premium to nominal value $100. Before tax cost of debt is 9% and after tax cost of debt is 6%. Current MV? Thank you very much in advance. Marina

In future please ask this sort of question in the Ask the Tutor Forum, and not as a comment on a lecture.
The market value is the present value of the future receipts discounted at the investors required rate of return.
On $100 nominal, the future receipts are interest of $7 per year for 7 years, and repayment of $105 in 7 years time.
You discount these flows at 9% (the investors required return).
Tax is not relevant because it is the investor who fixed the market value, and company tax does not affect them.

Thank you very much, John. Sure, next time will send to the correct email.

Sorry – one day I will re-record it, but until then if turning up the volume does not help then I am afraid you will have to pay for professionally recorded lectures from elsewhere.

I dont understand the coclusion that you gave in the end regarding the two options,Please explain it.

Don’t worry too much about it.
It is just that some investments give low returns from year to year (in terms of the interest payment or (in the case of shares) in terms of dividends) but the market value grows.
On the other hand there are other investments that give high returns from year to year, but the market value doesn’t grow (or might even fall).
Overall, you would expect the total return (cash each year + capital growth) to be similar, but investors have the choice between investments giving high return and low capital growth or low returns but high capital growth.
You don’t need to worry about numbers here at all.

no calculation is showed for debenture redemption yield.

As I wrote in my reply to the question immediately below, you cannot be asked to calculate the redemption yield in F9!
(and I say this in the lecture).

sir can u show the calculation of redemption yield
April 23, 2012 at 8:14 pm
@m23ahmuda, You cannot be asked to calculate the redemption yield in Paper F9 (only in P4). In F9 you are simply expected to know what it is.

The redemption yield takes into account not just the interest each year but also the “gain or loss” on redemption (repayment) – i.e. the difference between the price to pay now (market value) and the amount repaid on redemption.

@johnmoffat, so if we paid 140 for 100$ loan note it means on the date of repayment we are suffering loss of 29%. 100 divide by 140!! m i right sir??

@atiq422, There is a capital loss, but this is not the redemption yield for two reasons.
Firstly it is the ‘overall’ return including the interest that is receivable.
Secondly it is the annualised return.
Although you cannot be expected to calculate it, it is in fact just the IRR of the flows.
