Time value of money (canon inc.)

Your task for this module is to apply the concept of present value to your chosen SLP company.(Canon Inc.)Suppose your company is selling a bond that will pay you $100,000 in one year from today.Keep in mind that if your company has financial difficulties in one year, you might not get your full $100,000.Given that a dollar one year from now is almost always worth less than a dollar today, you most certainly would not pay a full $100,000 for this bond.

If you are highly risk averse or strongly prefer having money today to having money tomorrow, then you would pay significantly less than $100,000 for this bond.Higher inflation or high interest rates would also lead you to pay less for the bond.Also, the greater the chance of bankruptcy of your company the less you should be willing to pay for the bond.

Given the concepts of the time value of money, answer the following questions in a 2- to 3-page paper:

1) How much would you pay for this bond today?Take into consideration your own personal risk preferences, interest rates, inflation, and the probability your company will not be able to pay you back in one year.Note: You do not need any math equations for thispart; just explain how much you would personally pay for a $100,000 bond from this company.

2) Based on your answer to the previous question, what would be your discount rate for this bond?Use the present value formulas from the background materials and show your work.

3) Pick two other companies in the same industry as your SLP company.Pick one that you would pay less for a $100,000 bond than you would for your SLP company’s bond,and another that you would pay more for a $100,000bond you would for your SLP company’s bond. Explain why you would pay more or less for their bonds.

To answer questions 1, 2, and 3, include the following in your report:

  • Total debt/equity ratios of all three companies. (Note that the higher the debt, the higher the default risk.)
  • Profit margin, return on assets, and return on equity ratios of all three companies. (Remember your bond payment will depend on the profit margin and cash flow of the company.)
  • Betas of all three companies. (Note that the higher the beta, the higher the risk; the higher the risk, the higher the discount rate.)
  • Explanation on the riskiness of all three companies in brief (e.g., the higher the beta, the higher the risk).
  • Current ratio and quick ratio of all three companies.

The above factors/ratios will help you to decide the discount rate that you will use to calculate bond prices.You can find the above information by using the website http://finance.yahoo.com/. For example, you want to use General Electric Company. You will need to key in company code “GE” and then click on “Key Statistics” (http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ks?s=GE). You will be able to find all the ratios and beta of the company.

4) What do you perceive you have learned in the Module 2 SLP? Which of the following learning outcomes do you feel you have mastered?

  • Identify factors that determine present value.
  • Understand and discuss the concepts of present and future value.
