The time from acceptance to maturity on a $1,010,000 banker’s acceptance is 135 days. The importer’s bank’s acceptance commission is 2.00 percent and the market rate for 135-day B/As is 6.00 percent. What amount will the exporter receive if he holds the B/A until maturity? If he discounts the B/A with the importer’s bank? Also determine the bond equivalent yield the importer’s bank will earn from discounting the B/A with the exporter. If the exporter’s opportunity cost of capital is 11 percent, should he discount the B/A or hold it to maturity? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round “Maturity value” to 2 decimal places. Round “Bond equivalent yield” as a percent rounded to 2 decimal place)
