Abstract

This case invites students to estimate the costs of a new debt issue. Designed as an introductory case for use early on in an MBA course, it requires students to compute the yield-to-maturity on the Worldcom bonds from price data and from spreads over Treasury securities for bond-rating categories. The exercise allows for discussion of benchmarking in the context of credit markets.
