Falcor enters into a $50 million 7-year cross currency interest rate swap to pay euros and receive dollars.

Notional principal: $50,000,000 Spot exchange rate, $/€ : 1.16 US dollar swap rate 7 year bid: 5.86% US dollar swap rate 7 year ask: 5.89% Euro swap rate 7 year bid: 4.01% Euro swap rate 7 year ask: 4.05% a) Calculate all principal and interest payments in both currencies for the life of the swap b)Three years later Falcor decides to unwind the swap agreement. If 4-year fixed rates of interest in euros have now risen to 5.35%, 4-year fixed rate dollars have fallen to 4.40%, and the current spot exchange rate is $1.02/€, what is the NPV of the swap agreement? I got the answers for a, but don't know how to calculate the PV of remaining dollar cash inflows in b.

Sounds like homework, which we do not do here.

It was not a homework, but a study question for my exam for which I had the solutions but not the way how to calculate it. As I mentioned in my last posting, I did solve a, just had difficulties with part b so i did not want anybody to do any homework for me! However, this is not relevant anymore..
