On valuing corporate debt with the volatility of corporate assets evolving according to an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process
In this paper the problem of valuing corporate debt with possibility of default is considered. It is assumed that the volatility of the value of a firm's assets evolves according to an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process and default occurs only if the value of corporate assets falls below an exogenously specified, time dependent barrier. In the case of a particular choice of default barrier the explicit formulas for the present value of a corporate debt, the total value of the firm, the value of equity, the expected default time and the variation of default time are derived.
