The investment banking firm that they were referred to thinks that they can issue convertible debentures with the following characteristics: -9% coupon -20-year maturity -$1,000 par value -Conversion price of $50/share The executives of Coffee Masters are only willing to issue these debentures IF the after-tax cost of capital is less than 8%. If the after-tax cost of capital exceeds 8%, they are going to move onto 'Plan B'. Plan B consists of issuing non-convertible debt. 
Given the following information on the company, what is the minimum price per debenture that they are able to receive to keep the after-tax cost of the debenture at 8%? 
-Coffee Masters current common stock price = $43/share 
-They anticipate calling the convertible issue five years from now when the common stock price is likely to grow to $60/share 
- They are in a 40% tax bracket
