Equity Capital-Structure-Based Evaluation Method

Hassan El Ibrami, Ahmed Naciri


Abstract The main purpose of this paper is to theoretically compare three structural models presenting several similarities and using financial statements within the context of real options theory. The models are those suggested by i) Leland (1994); ii) Goldstein, Ju and Leland (2001) and iii) Sarkar and Zapatero (2003). The analysis emphasizes convergence conditions of the three models based on their respective dynamic equations. The results show that the first two models represent special cases of the third one. The paper also presents a new equity and debt valuation method. Keywords: Structural model, Financial statement, Equity, EBIT, Mean reversion, Contingent claim, Convergence.
