Perpetual convertible bonds in jump-diffusion models

Abstract

A convertible (callable) bond is a security that the holder can convert into a specified number of underlying shares. In addition, the issuer can recall the bond, paying some compensation, or force the holder to convert it immediately. We give an explicit solution to the corresponding optimal stopping game in the context of a reduced form model driven by a Brownian motion and a compound Poisson process with exponential jumps. It turns out that the occurrence of jumps leads to optimal stopping strategies whose structure differs from the results for continuous models.
