讲座简介:

Governments and corporations frequently sell assets with embedded real options to competing buyers using both cash and contingent bids. Examples include the sales of natural resources, real estate, patents and licenses, and start-up firms with growth options. This paper models these auctions of real options, incorporating both endogenous auction timing and post-auction option exercise. I find that common security bids create moral hazard and distort investment. Strategic auction timing affects auction initiation, security ranking, equilibrium bidding, and investment, and should be considered jointly with security design and seller's commitment level. Revenue-maximizing sellers inefficiently delay auctions, including optimal auctions which align investment incentives using a combination of down payment and royalty payment. When sellers cannot commit to an auction design, bidding and allocation outcomes are equivalent to cash auctions, and bidders always initiate the auctions when they are informed.
