Of course, a little more than 100 basis points of this amount is the spread?

On page 322 Book 5 Example 12, does anyone know what the sentence means? “Of course, a little more than 100 basis points of this amount is the spread”

Solution 1:

=> Libor+ 100 Basis points = 9%+1% = 10%

=> Effective annual rate = 9.34%

So, 9.34%<10%

Solution 2:

=> Libor+ 100 Basis points = 5%+1% = 6%

=> Effective annual rate = 7.24%

So, 7.24%>6%

Therefore, why are the statements on both solutions  the same?

The sentence applies to both situations. The first situation there was no payout out on the option while the second situation there was a payout.

Both situations have the same 100 bps over libor.
