内容简介:

We analyze the heterogeneous nature of firms’ debt contracts, some of which focus on liquidation values of discrete assets whereas others focus on going-concern values of the business. Using hand-collected data, we show that firms on average have limited liquidation values. Companies with lower liquidation values have more debt backed by going-concern values and more intensive performance monitoring. They pay higher interest rates only for debt against discrete assets. We present a model that matches our findings, explains the use of debt against different aspects of the firm, and demonstrates how creditor monitoring and covenants facilitate borrowing beyond liquidation values.
