Competitive Screening In Financial Market When Borrowers Can Recontract
AbstractThis paper examines how the possibility of recontracting affects the financing of projects when an entrepreneur is privately informed about the distribution of returns. An entrepreneur solicits initial financing for a project from competing uninformed financiers. Once the project is undertaken, but before its returns are realized, the entrepreneur can solicit additional financial contracts from competing financiers. It is assumed that these financiers can observe all previously signed contracts and that the seniority of claims is respected in the case of bankruptcy; however, the entrepreneur is never committed not to sell junior claims to competing financiers.
