Problem 16-17 Refunding decision [LO3]

 The Bowman Corporation has a \$27 million bond obligation outstanding, which it is considering refunding. Though the bonds were initially issued at 11 percent, the interest rates on similar issues have declined to 9 percent. The bonds were originally issued for 20 years and have 10 years remaining. The new issue would be for 10 years. There is an 7 percent call premium on the old issue. The underwriting cost on the new \$27,000,000 issue is \$620,000, and the underwriting cost on the old issue was \$470,000. The company is in a 30 percent tax bracket, and it will use a 9 percent discount rate (rounded after-tax cost of debt) to analyze the refunding decision. Use

 (a) Calculate the present value of total outflows. (Round “PV Factor” to 3 decimal places, intermediate and final answer to the nearest dollar amount. Omit the “\$” sign in your response.)

 Total outflows \$ [removed]

 (b) Calculate the present value of total inflows.(Round “PV Factor” to 3 decimal places, intermediate and final answer to the nearest dollar amount. Omit the “\$” sign in your response.)

 Total inflows \$ [removed]

 (c) Calculate the net present value. (Round “PV Factor” to 3 decimal places, intermediate and final answer to the nearest dollar amount. Negative amount should be indicated by a minus sign.Omit the “\$” sign in your response.)

 The Robinson Corporation has \$64 million of bonds outstanding that were issued at a coupon rate of 8 3/4 percent seven years ago. Interest rates have fallen to 7 3/4 percent. Mr. Brooks, the vice-president of finance, does not expect rates to fall any further. The bonds have 16 years left to maturity, and Mr. Brooks would like to refund the bonds with a new issue of equal amount also having 16 years to maturity. The Robinson Corporation has a tax rate of 30 percent. The underwriting cost on the old issue was 3 percent of the total bond value. The underwriting cost on the new issue will be 2.3 percent of the total bond value. The original bond indenture contained a five-year protection against a call, with a 8.5 percent call premium starting in the sixth year and scheduled to decline by one-half percent each year thereafter. (Consider the bond to be 7 years old for purposes of computing the premium). Assume the discount rate is equal to the aftertax cost of new debt rounded to the nearest whole number.

 What would be the aftertax cost of the call premium at the end of year 10 (in dollar value)? (Omit the “\$” sign in your response.)

 Aftertax cost of the call premium \$ [removed]
