Bankruptcy occurs if the distance to default is zero. Despite the mathematically interesting setup and its tractability under the assumption of the firm value following a geometric Brownian motion, the concept is difficult to interpret economically. 32 Especially the mean reverting version of cash flows assumes that debt is issued whenever the firm does well, but bought back if the firm’s condition deteriorates. In our framework the extra cash flows to equity owners become obvious. g. 3, where these models are described.

Due to the dilution of their respective claims, debt holders will not accept an increase of the current debt burden and equity holders will not deliberately buy back debt issues by selling new equity for small changes of the state variable. As a result, the current capital structure will maintain as long as the benefits of changing it are not high enough. If equity holders issue finite maturity debt, they face refinancing decision whenever a debt issue matures. In traditional firm value models, this issue is often circumvented by assuming that the capital structure is sufficiently simple.

However, both equity holders and new debt investors incorporate the issuance decision and the ex-post behavior of equity holders beforehand. Assume that a new debt issue does not lead to an immediate cash flow to equities but is reduced by K(D(C, T )). K(D(C, T )) includes issuing cost for the new debt as well as funds that need to stay within the firm. The debt notional cash flows then sum to P −P1 −K(D(C, T )). 41) conditional that, firstly, the incremental debt issue takes place at par D(C, T ) = P.
