The risk of default changes the price of a bond and the field to Maturity a (YTM) Ex: the interest rate on one-year risk-free bonds is 5%. Backwoods

Chemical Company issues 5% notes with face value of $1000, maturing in one year

PV of notes = $1000 + 50 2 $1000

1.05 o Suppose there is a 20% chance that backwoods will default, holders of its notes receive / of face value of the notes, or $500

- Payoff - Probability No default $1,000 Default $500

2 Expected payment is ,8 x ($1,050) + 2($500) = $940

► disurunt the expected pay off at risk - free int rate - PV of notes = $940 = $995


An investor who purchased the notes for $895 would receive a YTM - of $1.050 1 = 123 a 17.3%

- $895 II. The option to Default

Ex : Circular Fire borrowed $50 per share, but then the firm fell on hard €

times and the market value of its assets fell to $30. Circular's market - Asset value $30 $25 bonds value balance sheet

T $5 L Stock $20 $30 firm value

If Circular's debt were due and payable now, the firm wouldn't repay $10 it originally borrowed. When Circular borrowed, it acquired an option to default (it's not compelled to repay the debrat matunty).

> Value of its assets < $50 - it chooses to default on the debt and the bond holders will get to keep the assets e bond value = asset value - value of call

Stock value = value of call

• Firm value = asset value valuing corporale bonds

brood value bond value assuming value of but

no chance of default option on assets

1. Bond Ratings and the probability of Default -Bond Ratings are to measure the probability that the borrower will defaud L Principal rating services - Moody's, Standard & Poor's, Fitch - Highest quality bonds are rated triple- A (Aaa) - Investment-grade bonds Baa or higher -bonds rated below bac are fermed "high yield","junk." bonds

TV, Predicting the Probability of Default o Credit Scoring : complete a questionaire providing your details calculate e I an overall credit score assess the risk of their corporate loans (banks) e

t extend credit to customers(firms) 6 Market Based Risk Models:

- build on the idea that stockholders will exercise their ophon to default if market value of the assets fall below the payments that must be

made on the debt

* Credit Analysis - Prediching Default: William Beaver, Maureen Me Nichols, Tung-Wu Rhie Studied defaulting and non-defaulting firms and concluded the chance of failing during the next year relative to the chance of not failing was' best estimated by:

Log (relative chance of feilure) -6.445 -4.192RDA +2.307labilities assets —.846 EBITDA / liabilities

I value at Risk -If the quality of the bonds deteriorate, investors will demand a higher yield and the bond price will fall + Calculating value at niste by looking at the probability of possible ratings changes + estimating the likely effect of these changes for

the bonds price.

I. The Initial Public Offering

Initial Public Offering (IPO) first offering of stock to the general public . Unclerunter-firm that buys an issue of secunties from a company and resells it to the public e spread - difference between public offer price and price paid by underwriter b. Prospectus- formal summary that prondes information on an issue

of secunities Underpricing - Issuing securities at an offening price set below the true value of the security

* Underwriter Spread

For the issuing company incurs $1 million in expenses to sell 3 mil shares

+ $40 each to an underunter, they sell the shares at $43 each hat's the spread for this deal?

3 million x ($43- $40) - $9 millon


* Underwriting Arrangements | firm commitment - underwnters buy the securities from the firm and sell them to public

· Best Efforts commitment: Underunters agree to sell as much of the

issue as possible but don't quarantee the sale of the entire issue la Flotation Costs - the costs incurred when afirm issues new secunties

to the public ex: How much will a firm receive in het funding from a firm commitmes commitment underwnting of 250,000 sharespriced to the public at $40 if a H10% underwniting spread has been added to the price paid by the underwnter? The firm pays $600,000 in legal fees

Cost to public

$40 Net to issuers

$40/1.10 = $36.36 Spread was $3.64 per share Net to issuers

= $250,000 x $36.36 $9,090,000 Less: legal fees

600,000 $5,490,000

* Underpricing

incurs $1 mil to sell 3 mil shares af $40.

· underwriter sells the shares at $43 o l'ssuing company's stock price had nisem to $70,

Total cost of underpricing? = 3 million ( $70 - $43) = $81 million

E I buy back some of outstanding shares (STOCK REPURCHASE) I How firms lay Dividends o Stock Dividend distribution of additional shares to a firm's stockholders . Stock Splits - Issue of additional shares to firm's stockholders o Cash Dividend payment of cash by firm to its shareholders (Regular Special)

1. Buy shares on the market 2. Tender offer to shareholders 3. Dutch auction 4. Private negotiation (Green Mail)

TV The Payout Decision (see textbook pg 394) J. Stock Repurchases and DCF Models of Share Price

• Calculate Market Capitalization - Done by forecasting and discounting free cash flow paid to shareholders le calculate share pnice = Market capitalization

no of outstanding shares

• Calculate Value of Dividends per share + Account for increased dividend growth rate per share

- caused by declining no of shares as shares are repurchased

Ex: Dividend payout company had 4,000 shares outstanding and that the project had an NPV of $2,000. Value of a company ($10,000 + NPU). The old stock worth in total = $10,000 + NPV = $12,000

Share price = $12.000 $12

1200 1. Dividend Theones - Leftists (M&M) - dividend does not effect value |- Rightists - Dividends increase value

- Middle of the roaders -leftist theory with some reality thrown in Residual Dividend Policy

Dividends Increase Value Market Imperfections x Clientele Effect

• Not any particular firm can benefit by increasing its dividends.

• High dividend clientele already have plenty of high dividend stock

• Increase the price of stock through their demand for a dividend

paying stock

Dividends as Signals

• Dividend increases - good news abt cash flow x larnings Is signals a company's good fostine and its manager's confidence

in future cash flows

Tax Consequences o Convert dividendt = capital gains by shifting dividend policies

• Total sash How retained by the firm, held by shareholders will be higher than if dividends are paid

- Taxes and Radical Left e Capital gains are taxed at lower rate than dividend income companies. should pay the lowest dividend possible

Avidend policy should adjust to changes in taxcode
