Under the Capital Purchase Program (CPP), U.S. taxpayers hold warrants issued by over 270 publicly traded banks. The provisions of the CPP allow for half of the warrants to be cancelled if the recipient bank issues enough preferred or common stock by the end of 2009. This paper develops a model to estimate the probability of a qualified equity issuance that is consistent with standard option pricing techniques. The model is based on the transaction costs of issuing new equity and can be solved numerically.
