Optimal Deterministic Debt Contracts

Author

Abstract

This paper extends the costly enforcement model of optimal financing to the case of investment projects financed by several lenders. We consider the asymmetric situation when only one lender is a big strategic investor. All other lender are small passive investors. We first provide the sufficient and necessary condition for renegotiation proofness. Then we show that the optima verification is deterministic. We also discuss the conditions under which the optimal contract is a debt contract.
