b. Listing provides a company with some “free” advertising, and it may enhance the firm’s

 

prestige and help it do more business.

the exchange rather than with the SEC.

4. Which of the following statements is most CORRECT?

 

a. The key benefits associated with refunding debt are the reduction in the firm’s debt ratio

 

and the creation of more reserve borrowing capacity.

 

b. The mechanics of finding the NPV of a refunding decision are fairly straightforward.

 

However, the decision of when to refund is not always clear because it requires a

 

forecast of future interest rates.

 

c. If a firm with a positive NPV refunding project delays refunding and interest rates rise, the

 

firm can still obtain the entire NPV by locking in a low coupon rate when the rates are

 

low, even though it actually refunds the debt after rates have risen.

 

d. Suppose a firm is considering refunding and interest rates rise during time when the

 

analysis is being done. The rise in rates would tend to lower the expected price of the

 

new bonds, which would make them cheaper to the firm and thus increase the expected

 

interest savings.

 

e. If new debt is used to refund old debt, the correct discount rate to use in the refunding

 

analysis is the before-tax cost of new debt.

 

5. Which of the following factors would increase the likelihood that a company would call its

 

outstanding bonds at this time?

 

a. A provision in the bond indenture lowers the call price on specific dates, and yesterday

 

was one of those dates.

 

b. The flotation costs associated with issuing new bonds rise.

 

c. The firm’s CFO believes that interest rates are likely to decline in the future.

 

d. The firm’s CFO believes that corporate tax rates are likely to be increased in the future.

 

e. The yield to maturity on the company’s outstanding bonds increases due to a weakening

 

of the firm’s financial situation.
