Mini Case

This Mini Case is available in MyFinanceLab

You have been assigned to work as an assistant to the chief financial officer (CFO) of Carat Designs, Inc. As one of your assignments, you have been asked to estimate the nominal interest rate for a new issue of a bond. The final format you should provide to the CFO is that of the equation in the following table.

Some agreed-upon procedures related to generating estimates for key variables are as follows:

a. The current 3-month Treasury bill rate is 3% and the inflation rate is 2%.

b. The 30-year Treasury bond rate is 5% and the 30-year corporate bond rate is 7%.

c. The liquidity-risk premium will be greater than zero, however, because the secondary market for the firm’s bonds is more uncertain. It is estimated at 5 basis points.

Estimate the nominal interest rate and provide a short explanation for every step in the equation for your discussion with the CFO.
