Default Re: Default risk and Special types of bonds

at start the promised ytm=coupon-7.7% ,if you buy now Promised YTM=(c+(FV-p)/n)/(FV+p/2)=(77+(1000-332.75)/7)/(1000+332.75)/2=25.85%

For expected YTM do the following things
coupon payment =77/2=38.5
periods=4 ( since 2 years)
in calci try this CF0=38.5,freq=4,cf1=0,freq=9,cf2=400,calcualte the ytm
