I need a little clarification. The company repays $5 interest per year but what does the 6.25 % interest means(5/80*100)? Do they give the debenture holder this amount as the large discount?

The company is paying 5% on the nominal value.
However if investors are prepared to pay $80 on the stock exchange in order to get $5 a year interest, it must mean that they are currently requiring a return on 5/80 = 6.25% (because it is investors who fix the market value – if they wanted a higher or lower return they would fix a different market value).

A VERY GOOD LECTURE BUT THE LECTURER’ VOICE CANNOT BE HEARD QUITE WELL. I WISHED HE CAME CLOSER TO THE MIC

It was recorded during a live lecture, and I walk around which is what has caused the problem
I will record it again when I have the time.

john i would be very grateful if you could please repeat what you said in the very last minute about the risk involved in zero coupon bonds

Because they don’t pay interest, but instead pay a large ‘bonus’ on repayment, the huge risk is that the business might not be able to afford the repayment and therefore go bankrupt!
Businesses issue zero-coupon bonds to save money (no interest) while they are growing. If they do manage to grow then all is fine, but if they don’t then they may face the problem above
Hope that clears it up for you

The sound of this lecture is very poor but otherwise the content is rich
