7 The Effect of Payouts An interesting question that arises in the context of project financing is that of how the analysis has to be modified if the borrower receives payouts from the project before maturity. Intuitively, one would expect the lender to ask for more equity capital in this case, since the terminal payoff to the lender is reduced by the amount of payouts. To show that this is indeed the case, consider the simple case in which the borrower can withdraw a continuous proportional dividend of 8 from the project.

10) r-r* Equation (9) stems from the properties of the bankruptcy process; equation (10) states that bankruptcy becomes irrelevant and the debt riskfree as S becomes very large. From (10), a 1 must be zero. * (11) Then, from (10), we have - -¢- . ao- (12) r-r* Finally, using (9), we obtain F(SB) =(1-a)SB =_¢-D(t)+a2 (D(t»)I+Y*S;Y*, (13) r-r* and a2 = (l-a)SB--¢-D(t) r-r* (D(t) t Y* S;y* (S = _B_ D(t) )Y*( S ¢) (l-a)-B---D(t) r - r * ' (14) and therefore for the value of the debt, F: F(S) = ¢D(t) +(D(t)ty*(~)r*(I-a)~--¢-)s-Y* r-r* D(t) = ¢D(t) +(I-a)SB _ D(t) ¢D(t»)(~)-Y* r-r* (15) r-r* r-r* SB The value of the risky debt thus equals the value of the risk-free debt, ¢D(t) I (r - r*), plus a (negative) amount that takes the expected losses in the event of bankruptcy into account.

Endogenous Bankruptcy and Capital Structure is independent of tjJ.

As the interest rate r* is increased. optimal leverage falls. 2 Interest Payments vs. Increase in the Face Value of Debt Using the optimal capital structure result above, the question of how debt service is going to be split between r* and tjJ can now be addressed.
