# FIN622 Assignment No 01 Solution & Discussion Due Date:06-05-2013

Topic: Calculation of WACC and Capital Budgeting Analysis
ANF Inc., a garment manufacturer, is planning to install a new plant at a cost of Rs.
1,500,000. It also requires an initial investment of Rs. 200,000 in net working capital in
first year. This investment in net working capital will be recovered at the end of useful
life of plant. Plant’s expected economic life is 5 year. At the end of that period, its
salvage value is estimated to be Rs. 150,000.
Expected pre-tax cash inflows by installation of new plant are: Rs. 500,000 in year1,
Rs. 600,000 in year2, Rs. 700,000 in year3, Rs. 750,000 in year4 and Rs. 800,000 in
year5. ANF Inc. uses straight line method of depreciation for plant and its tax rate is

How to Calculate Yield to Maturity

Yield to Maturity (YTM) for a bond is the total return, interest plus capital gain, obtained from a bond held to maturity. Yield to maturity is a useful measure of the attractiveness of a seasoned bond that is held to maturity and redeemed at par value. For example, suppose you buy a \$1000 par value ABC Company bond with a 5% coupon rate maturing in five years, and the market price for the bond is \$900. The coupon rate is the annual interest rate payable on the \$1000 par value, which is \$50 per year. The current yield of the bond is the interest divided by the current price of the bond, which is \$50/\$900, or 5.56%. On redemption of the bond after 5 years, you get \$1000 for the matured bond, and realize \$100 capital gain.
Yield to maturity takes into account both interest and capital gain return on the bond

Definition
The term Yield to Maturity also called as Redemption Yield often abbreviated as YTM and used when it comes to bond funds, is defined as the rate of return obtained by buying a bond at the current market price and holding it to maturity. Yield to Maturity is the index for measuring the attractiveness of bonds. When the price of the bond is low the yield is high and vice versa. YTM is beneficial to the bond buyer because a rising yield would decrease the bond price hence the same amount of interest is paid but for less money. Where the coupon payment refers to the total interest per year on a bond. Yield to maturity can be mathematically derived and calculated from the formula

YTM is therefore a good measurement gauge for the expected investment return of a bond. When it comes to online calculation, this Yield to Maturity calculator can help you to determine the expected investment return of a bond according to the respective input values. YTM deals only with the time-value-of-money calculations between the price, coupons and face value of the bond at hand, not with other potential future investments. If the coupons and face value are paid as promised the bond earns its yield-to-maturity
