To calculate the price paid by Franco Ltd. for the Gentron Company bonds, we need to determine the present value of the bond's cash flows. Step 1: Calculate the present value of the bond's interest payments. The bond pays semi-annual interest, so there will be 2 payments per year for a total of 10 periods (5 years). The coupon payment is 7.00% of the face value, which is$530,000. Using the formula for the present value of an annuity, we can calculate the present value of the interest payments:

PV of Interest Payments = Coupon Payment × [1 - (1 + r)(-n)] / r Where: Coupon Payment = $530,000 × 7.00% / 2 =$18,550 r = Market interest rate / 2 = 8% / 2 = 4% (since it's a semi-annual rate) n = Number of periods = 10 PV of Interest Payments = $18,550 × [1 - (1 + 4%)(-10)] / 4% =$150,457.117
