The pricing formula for cancellable European options
AbstractThis paper examines the value of a cancellable European option in a finite time horizon setting. The specifications of this generalized European option allow the seller to cancel the option at any point in time for a fixed penalty paid directly to the holder. Here, we provide an explicit valuation formula for the European game call where the early cancellation time is obtained iteratively.
