Abstract

Bank loan commitments are examined in the context of option pricing models and a valuation formula is obtained. The partial takedown phenomenon, which is both distinctive and vexatious, is considered in detail. Finally, extimates of the value of U.S. bank loan commitments and their sensitivity to interest rate changes are provided.
