**Example text**

The equity and debt payoﬀs at time T are E(T ) = (V(T ) − F)1{τ>T } , D(T ) = F1{τ>T } + Fe(r−γ)(T −τ) 1{τ≤T } . In the case of an early default at time τ ≤ T the debt payoﬀ Fe−γ(T −τ) is invested risk free, so it becomes Fe−γ(T −τ) er(T −t) = Fe(r−γ)(T −τ) at time T . Note that E(T ) + D(T ) is not equal to V(T ) (as was the case in the Merton model). 24 The case with a barrier of the form Ke−γ(T −t) , where K ≤ F, is known as the Black–Cox model. It is slightly more general than the case with K = F studied here, and can be analysed in a similar manner.

10 Verify the inequality FB ≤ FM by using the debt payoﬀ instead of the equity payoﬀ. For the initial equity and debt values we obtain the equations E(0) = e−rT EQ ((V(T ) − F)1{τ>T } ), D(0) = e−rT EQ (F1{τ>T } + Fe(r−γ)(T −τ) 1{τ≤T } ), with two variables F and γ (both also implicitly contained in τ). 31, the balance sheet equation E(0)+D(0) = V(0) holds for every F and γ, so we have in fact just a single equation with two variables and possibly inﬁnitely many solutions. Auxiliary facts It will be convenient to describe τ in terms of the process Fe−γ(T −t) V(t) Fe−γT + r−γ− = − ln V(0) 1 = − ln L + r − γ − σ2 2 Y(t) = − ln 1 2 σ t + σWQ (t) 2 t + σWQ (t).

A random time with exponential distribution can serve to illustrate some key features of the model. In particular, note that in this case the distribution function is continuous and strictly increasing on [0, ∞). In general, continuity of the distribution function means that all events of the form {τ = t} have probability zero. If the distribution function is strictly increasing on [0, ∞), then the probability of default occurring between any two times s, t such that 0 ≤ s < t is positive. Although one might argue that no default can happen during weekends or holidays, a new piece of information could emerge at any time, and τ indicates this moment rather than the actual instant of bankruptcy, which would follow once the necessary legal procedures are completed.
