Semester Spring 2014 Graded Discussion Board Corporate Finance (FIN622) Concept to be tested: “Bond Valuation” Discussion Question Mr. Afzal has been offered to buy a bond from his friend Mr. Khan who bought it two years back at a par value of PKR 10,000 with a maturity period of 10 years and annual coupon rate of 12.25%. The market interest rate was 12.25% two years back, which is 9.5% now. Mr. Khan has offered him the bond on same price i.e. PKR 10,000. Should Mr. Afzal buy it? Is it rational for Mr. Khan to sell the bond on par value? Support your comments with logical reasons.

which formula u have used
Please note instructor don't need the mathematical solution. It is for your understanding
i think no body wants help here..
vu students have become genius :)
Look, on this bond 2 years already have been passed, now it have maturity of 8 years. The seller already enjoyed 2 coupons and now again want to sell it on Par Value.
The buyer is buying it at par value =10000 and will receive stream of cash flows as I calculated above with required rate of return. The total value of bond in this way is 11,494.
Now I think you can understand the situation
Yes, you have to explain the logic, the rationale
present 9.5% interest rate hai tou kya decision is k according nhi liya jaye ga?
