Cash flows and debt maturity

Noe, Thomas, Goswami, Gautam and Rebello, Michael (1997) Cash flows and debt maturity. Economica, 64 (254). pp. 303-316.


In an asymmetric information framework, a number of authors have demonstrated the existence and uniqueness of short-term debt pooling equilibria in the absence of dissipative costs. We show that short-term debt pooling is robust to a broad range of deviations from stationarity and intertemporal independence. However, with intertemporal dependence, separating equilibria exist in which short-term debt signals favourable information. Non-stationary allows for separating equilibria in which long-term debt signals favourable information. A range of deviations from stationarity and intertemporal independence also support long-term debt pooling equilibria.
