    A convertible note (or debenture or wtv) is usued at par and you know from the beginning you get 25 shares for each note. So, $1,000=25 shares --> divide each side by 25 and you get your conversion ratio, $1000/25=conversion ratio of 40. The conversion price is the ratio of the par value of your note to your conversion ratio, so $1,000/40=$25. http://www.maileyrogers.com/documents/Intro_to_Convertible_Debentures.pdf
