An out-of-the-money put at the same strike is sold to finance the call, resulting in a net credit of $0.85 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $1.39 per share over the underlying price of $12.54 for a 11.08% total.

Downside risk: This discount is generally a sign of the stock facing considerable short pressure, and may indicate that the stock has become hard to borrow. However, if you have a long view of the underlying over this period, it could be a good opportunity to benefit from the upside at a major discount.
