If it places the bonds privately the interest rate will be 14 percent. Twenty thousand dollars in out-of-pocket costs will be incurred. For a public issue the interest rate will be 13 percent and the underwriting spread will be 2 percent. There will be $100000 in out-of-pocket costs. Assume interest on the debt is paid semiannually and the debt will be outstanding for the full 15-year period at which time it will be repaid. Use Appendix B and Appendix D for an approximate answer but calculate your final answer using the formula and financial calculator methods.

Assume the stated discount rate is 16 percent annually. Use 8.00 percent semiannually throughout the analysis. (Disregard taxes.)(Assume the $1.80 million needed includes the underwriting costs. Input your present value of future payments answers as negative values. Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answers to 2 decimal places.)
