In your case study, discuss the following aspects of the company.
- Provide a brief introduction of the company, including its name, headquarters, products/services offered, and approximate net worth.
- What are the key features of one of the bonds issued by your chosen company? Discuss how the bond’s terms and collateral can affect the bond’s interest rate.
- How would a potential investor determine the value and risk of the bond?
- Explain the concept of the time value of money (TVM) as it applies to the company’s bond offerings.
Your case study should be at least two pages in length. Use APA Style to cite and reference all quoted and paraphrased material, including your textbook. Use a minimum of two sources, one of which may be the textbook. Include a title page, introduction, body, conclusion, and references page. An abstract is not required.
