Yield to put, Financial Management

Yield to put is the rate at which the present value of cash flow to the first put date is equal to the price plus interest rate. It is used for putable security. It is also similar to yield to call. The assumptions under the yield to put calculation are:

  • Any interim coupon payment can be reinvested at the yield calculated.

  • The bond will put on the first put date.

For example, assume a Rs.100 par value, 7% 5-year bond is selling for Rs.104.66 and putable at par at the end of three years. If the bond is put at the end of three years then the cash flow will be like this:

3rd year

The present value for interest rates is shown in table 6. It is very clear from the table that 5.30% annual rate makes the present value of the cash flow equal the price of Rs.104.66. So 5.30% is the yield to put.
