At the beginning, the S&P Total Return Index was at 2500 level, on 30th June it was 2600, and on 31st December it was at 2570. Alpha Pays Return on index = 2600/2500 = 4% 30th June 31st December = 100,000,000*0.04 = $4,000,000 Goldman Pays =100,000,000 * 182/365 * 6% =$2,991,780 Fixed payment =100,000,000 * 183/365 * 6% Return on index = 2570/2600 = - =$3,008,219 Floating payment 1.154% = 100,000,000*0.01154 = $1,154,000 Total payment Alpha pays nothing. = $3,008,219+$1,154,000 =$4,162,219
