## Introduction to Convertible Bond

A convertible bond pays fixed-income interest but can be converted into a set number of common stock shares. Conversion from the bond to stock occurs at set times during the bond’s life and therefore is usually at the bondholder’s discretion. It provides investors with hybrid security that includes features of a bond, such as interest payments, as well as the option to own the underlying stock.

## 4 Steps to Create Convertible Bond Pricing Model in Excel

This is the dataset for today’s article. We have a bond with a Face Value of \$1500, a Coupon Rate of 5%, Discounting Factor of 5%. The bond will mature in 4 years. I will show you how to do convertible bond pricing now. ### Step 1: Calculate Coupon Amount

The first step is to calculate the coupon amount. We will multiply the face value of the bond by the coupon rate to do so.

• Go to C10 and write down the following formula
`=\$C\$4*\$C\$5` • Then, press ENTER to get the output. • Then, use the Fill Handle to AutoFill up to C13. ### Step 2: Measure Coupon and Principal

Now, I will add the coupon and the principal amount. The maturity is 4 years. So, I have written down the principal amount first. • Then, go to E5 and write down the following formula
`=C10+D10` • Then, press ENTER to get the output. • After that, use the Fill Handle to AutoFill up to E13. ### Step 3: Calculate Present Value of Bond

The next step is to calculate the present value of the bond. To do so,

• Go to F9 and write down the following formula
`=E10/(1+\$C\$6)^B10` • Then, press ENTER to get the output. • After that, use the Fill Handle to AutoFill up to F13. ### Step 4: Measure Bond Value

Finally, I will calculate the bond value. I will use the SUM function to do so.

• Go to F15 and write down the following formula
`=SUM(F10:F13)` • Then, press ENTER to get the output. ## Conclusion
