Question: Flaherty Corp has just issued a 30 year callable convertible bond

The required return on an otherwise identical non-convertible bond is 11 percent.
a. What is the minimum value of the bond?
b. If the stock price were to grow by 13 percent per year forever, how long would it take for the bond’s conversion value to exceed $1,100?
