Presentation :

In the presence of interest rate and inflation risks, we are able to obtain quasiclosed form expressions for the price of various forms of indexed- and non-indexed bonds issued by the firm, which allows us to generate computationally efficient estimates for the optimal debt structure. Our analysis shows that debt-structure decisions have a strong impact on capital structure decisions. It also suggests that substantial increases in firm value can be generated by optimal debt structures.
