EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

## Lyons is exploring the possible consequences of repurchasing company bonds

outstanding using cash obtained by issuing new bonds with lower interest rate and
how this will affect annual interest payments, reported earnings and companys
financial position on the balance sheet.
Management has decided to fund the companys growth by issuing debt rather than
In 1999, bonds worth \$10 million, 20 year maturity period and offering a coupon rate
of 8% with interest paid semi-annually were issued.
Only \$9.1 million was received when the bonds were issued in 1999 (Carrying Value 9079920.779, Discount to be Amortized - 920079.221).
In 1999 market interest rate was around 9% and at present (2009) it is 6%.

## PROBLEMS IDENTIFIED & BEST POSSIBLE SOLUTION

1. Lyons Document Storages controller, Eric Petro, told Rene that the bonds were issued
in 1999 at a discount and that only approximately \$9.1 million was received in cash.
Explain what is meant by the terms premium or discount as they relate to bonds.
Compute exactly how much the company received from its 8% bonds if the rate
prevailing at the time of the original issue was 9% as indicated in Exhibit 2. Also recompute the amounts shown in the balance sheet as December 21, 2006 and December
31, 2007, for Long-Term Debt. What is the current market value of the bonds
outstanding at the current effective interest rate of 6%?
If the bond value at the time of issuance by the borrower is more than face value of the bond then
such bonds are called Premium bonds. If the coupon rate stated by the borrower (for example 9%) is
more than prevailing market interest rate (for example 7%) then such bonds will be premium bonds.
Discount
If the bond value at the time of issuance by the borrower is less than face of the bond then such
bonds are called Discount bonds. If the coupon rate stated by the borrower (for example 6%) is less
than prevailing market interest rate (for example 8%) then such bonds will be discount bonds.
Bonds issued in 1999 worth 10000000
Number of Years to Maturity 20
Coupon Rate 8% (annually), 4% (semi-annually)
Periods = 20 * 2 = 40 (Since interest is paid semi-annually)
Market Interest Rate 9% (annually), 4.5% (semi-annually)

## Lyons Document Storage Corporation: Bond Accounting

Present Value of the Principal (At the time of issuance)
10000000 / (1+.045) ^40 = 1719287.01
Present Value of the Interest
((10000000 * .08)/2 *(1-(1/ (1+0.045) ^40)))/0.045 = 7360633.768
Therefore, total proceeds at the time of issuance
P.V. of Principal + P.V of Interest = 9079920.779 (Company Received this amount in July 1999)
Total Discount Amortized = Bond Value Proceeds
= 10000000 - 9079920.779 = 920079.221

Number of periods = 20
Effective Interest Rate = 6% Annually, 3% Semi-Annually
Annuity Amount = 400000
From Present Value Ordinary Annuity of 1 table 4 below PVA = 400000 * 14.877 = 5950800

Table 4

From Present Value of 1 table 2 given below Present value of face value = 1000000 * .55368 = 5536800

Table - 2
Therefore current market value of the bond
PV of Annuity + PV of FV = 5950800 + 5536800 = 11487600

2. If you were Rene Cook, would you recommend issuing \$10 million, 6% bonds on
January 2, 2009 and using the proceeds and other cash to refund the existing \$10
million, 8% bonds? Will it cost more, in terms of principal and interest payments, to

## Lyons Document Storage Corporation: Bond Accounting

keep the existing bonds or to issue new ones at a lower rate? Be prepared to discuss
the impact of a bond refunding on the following areas
a. Cash Flows
b. Current years earnings
c. Future years earnings
Note: For purposes of your computations, assume that refunding, if selected, occurs effective
January 2, 2009, at a price of \$1154.15 per bond. Ignore the effects of income taxes. How many
new \$1000 bonds will Lyons have to issue to refund the old 9% bonds?
For the period starting from Jan 2009, if new bonds are issued at 8% coupon rate then they will trade
at premium since market rate mentioned in the case is 6%.
Market Interest Rate 6% (Annual), 3% (Semi-annual)
Interest Paid 8% (Annual), 4% (Semi-annual)
Number of Years 11 Periods = 11 * 2 = 22 (Since calculated semi-annually)
Present Value of Principal = 10000000 * (1+.03) ^ 22 = 5218925.009
Present Value of Interest = ((10000000*.08/2)*(1-(1/(1+0.03)^22)))/0.03 = 6374766.655
Therefore, total proceeds at the time of issuance
P.V. of Principal + P.V of Interest = 11593691.66
Premium = 11593691.66 10000000 = 1593691.664

Interest expense for new proposed bonds will be lower (assuming the coupon rate remains 8%)

## If the bonds are refunded at 1154.15 then

Call Premium = 11541500 10000000 = 1541500

## Lyons Document Storage Corporation: Bond Accounting

As per my understanding, since call premium of old bonds (1541500) is less than amortized premium
of new bonds (1593691.66), Rene should go ahead with refund of old discount bonds and issuance of
How many new \$1000 bonds will Lyons have to issue to refund the old 9% bonds?
To refund old 9% bonds, amount required 11541500 (current price is \$1154.15 in Jan 2009).
Given the current market rate of 6%, a bond with a face value of \$1,000.00 and paying a coupon rate
of 8% (compounding Semi-Annually), should be selling for \$1,159.37 (selling at a premium).
Therefore number of new bonds = 11541500/1159.37 = 9955
Income statement Premium - The income statement will include an interest expense equal to the bond's coupon
payment minus the amortized portion of the premium received during the specified accounting
period.
Discount - The income statement will include an interest expense equal to the bond's coupon
payment plus the amortized portion of the discount received during the specified accounting period.
Balance sheet Premium - The balance sheet will include at all times a long-term liability equal to its carrying value.
At initiation the carrying value will be equal to the face value of the bond plus the total unamortized
premium. Every year the bond value recorded on the balance sheet will be reduced until the bond
comes to maturity or is redeemed and the bond value displayed on the balance eventually reaches
the bond's original face value.
Discount - The balance sheet will include at all times a long-term liability equal to its carrying value.
At initiation the carrying value will be equal to the face value of the bond minus the total
unamortized discount. Every year the bond value recorded on the balance sheet will be increased
until the bond comes to maturity and the bond value displayed on the balance is equal to the bond's
face value.
Cash Flow Statement Premium Going forward, cash flow from operations will include the actual coupon paid to the debt holder during
the specified accounting period. Since this is a bond that was sold at a premium, it is paying out a
larger coupon than is currently stated as an interest expense on the income statement. As a
result, CFO will be understated relative to that of a company that sold its bond at par. The amortized
portion of the bond premium will be included in cash flow from financing. This will cause the reported
cash flow from financing to be overstated relative to that of a company that sold its bond at par.
Discount Going forward, cash flow from operations will include the actual coupon paid to the debt holder during
the specified accounting period. Since this is a bond that was sold at a discount, it is paying out a
smaller coupon than is currently stated as an interest expense on the income statement. As a
result CFO will be overstated relative to that of a company that sold its bond at par. The amortized

portion of the bond discount will be included in cash flow from financing. This will cause the reported
cash flow from financing to be understated relative to that of a company that sold its bond at par
3. Assume 6% bonds could be issued and the proceeds used to refund the existing
bonds. Compare the effects of these transactions with those calculated in Question 2.
If you were Rene Cook, what amount of new bonds would you recommend and why?
If bonds are issued at 6% then they will trade at par since market interest rate is also 6%.
In this case, present value of principal and interest will be as mentioned below.
Present Value of Principal

5218925.01

## Present Value of Interest

4781074.99

Proceeds

10000000.00

Since amount required to refund existing bonds (11541500) is higher than amount received from
proceeds, Rene will have to issue more number of \$1000 bonds i.e. 11542
