Explanation:

When companies need to raise money, bonds issuance is one way to do it. A bond acts as a loan between an investor and a corporation. The investor comes in agreement to give the corporation a specific amount of money for a specific period of time in exchange for periodic interest payments at designated intervals. The investor's loan is repaid when the loan reaches its maturity date.

The issue price of a bond is based on the link between the interest rate that the bond pays and the market interest rate being paid on the same date.

Issue price of bonds = Present value of interest+Present value of maturity

= (10000000*4%*14.8775) + (10000000*0.5537)

Issue price of bonds = 11487747
