On January 1, Year 6, Trembley Corporation issued $1,000,000 face value, 20-year bonds. The bonds carry coupon interest of 6% per year, payable semiannually on June 30 and December 31. The bonds were initially priced on the market to yield 8%, compounded semiannually (for an effective annualized yield greater than 8 percent).
