    This paper uses differing objective functions under the Longstaff model (1990) to discuss the strategic choices faced by the creditor when deciding whether to grant maturity extension on a defaulted loan. The results reveal that: (1) it ensures that the return per unit of risk is higher after maturity extension than before; (2) it recognizes that the risk profile of the firm substantially affects the strategic behavior of the creditor; and (3) it demonstrates that the higher the profit sharing percentage the creditor get, the more willing it will be to extend maturity.
