Formally, the agency cost of debt, C, equals: C=W(SB =O)-W(SB = (l-e)~D(t) r* ). r-r* l+r* (33) Using (25) yields ~D(t)(e+a(l_e)-L)(l-e)~D(t) r* )r- (34) r-r* l+r* r-r* l+r* As given by (34), the agency cost of debt C depends positively on the face value of debt D(t), on the interest rate ~ and on the bankruptcy cost a.

(~)-r. ~((~)-r*) SB r-r* =_ (1-0)ljJD(t) r-r* = (l+r*)2 (1- O)ljJD(t) r-r* SB (~J-r. (In(~J--l) SB SB l+r* (~J-r* _1_ln(~). SB l+r* SB Expression (45) is negative as long as S > SB' that is, as long as bankruptcy hasn't been declared. Now, from (42), (45) implies: aE(S) = aE(S) dr * > o. (46) a(12 ar * d(12 3. 2 , D(t) =50 and S = 100. As asset risk a is increased, equity value rises, thus leading to a risk-shifting problem.
