Bonds Payable:
A bond is a long-term debt security. Bonds are issued with specific coupon or nominal rate, which is determined largely by market conditions at the time of the bond issuance. The amount of the interest payment can be calculated by multiplying the rate of interest (or coupon) by the face value.
Often, bonds are issued at interest rate which is equal to prevailing market rate. But, in few instances it differs. If the issued interest rate is higher than the market rate then it is a case of premium vice versa if they are issued at interest rate lower than the market rate it is a case of discount. Depending on the nature of issue say premium or discount, amount will be amortized through-out the life of the bond like an expense or income.
a. In the present case, the issued interest rate is more than the market interest rate then, the bonds are issued at premium. It means the cash received on issuance of bonds is more than the face value of the bonds payable.
Thus, the amount of cash received more than $26,000,000. b. (1)Face value of the bonds is . (2)Market or effective rate of interest is . (3)Contract rate of interest is . (4)Maturity amount is .

Essay Answer: Tags Choose question tag General Electric bond issuance General Electric Capital, a division of General Electric, uses long-term debt extensively. In a recent year, GE Capital issued$11 billion in long-term debt to investors, then within days filed legal documents to prepare for another $50 billion long-term debt issue. As a result of the$50 billion filing, the price of the initial $11 billion offering declined (due to higher risk of more debt). Bill Gross, a manager of a bond investment fund, "denounced a 'lack in candor' related to GE's recent debt deal. 'It was the most recent and most egregious example of how bondholders are mistreated.' Gross argued that GE was not forthright when GE Capital recently issued$ 11 billion in bonds, one of the largest issues ever from a U.S. corporation. What bothered Gross is that three days after the issue the company announced its intention to sell as much as $50 billion in additional debt, warrants, preferred stock, guarantees, letters of credit and promissory notes at some future date." In your opinion, did GE Capital act unethically by selling$11 billion of long-term debt without telling those investors that a few days later it would be filing documents to prepare for another $50 billion debt offering?
