### Alternate 3:

Alternate 3 is a New Zealand Euro bond issue at the coupon rate of 18.55 percent. Table 3 shows the net cost to raise funds in New Zealand by using the assumed discount rate of 8 percent. The net cost for two year debt issue is 2,068,578 United States dollars at the end of the year 1986 by discounting back all the cash outflows and summing the present value of all cash inflows and outflows to get the final figure of the net cost to raise funds. Exhibit 3 of the document shows the calculations in New Zealand Euro bond but Table 3 is converted table in United States dollars by using the spot rate, 1 year forward and 2 year forward rate. These rates are shown in Exhibit 3.
