Problem on Swaps based on Chapter 23
Company A can issue floating-rate debt at LIBOR + 1%, and it can issue fixed rate debt at 9%. Company B can issue floating-rate debt at LIBOR + 1.5%, and it can issue fixed-rate debt at 9.4%.
Suppose A issues floating-rate debt and B issues fixed-rate debt, after which they engage in the following swap: A will make a fixed 7.95% payment to B, and B will make a floating-rate payment equal to LIBOR to A.
What are the resulting net payments of A and B?
Company A fixed payment 7.95%
The payment of LIBOR is made by company B
Company A still pays the +1%
Company A makes a net payment of 8.95%
Company B pays the LIBOR
Company A pays 7.95% of the 9.4%, this leaves company B with 1.45% left.
Company B is left with LIBOR + 1.45
Problem based on Chapter 23 – Futures Contract
What is the implied interest rate yield on a Treasury Bond ($100,000) futures contract that settled at 100’24 (or 100 24/32)? If interest rates increased by 0.75%, what would be the contract’s new value?
Assume that this is based on 20 Years, with an annual yield of 8%, with semi-annual payments.
$1,000 X (100+24/32)/100 = 1007.5
N = 40
I/Y = 8%
PV = 1007.5
FV = 1000
PMT = 40
