Resumen

Can a bad technological allocation generate financial friction? We built a theory model with verifiable implications, in which the poor distribution between R&D and production The activity of the banks generates debt limitations. The investor offers the innovator a rent that is contingent on the success of your project in order to make you exercise a level of effort compatible with the incentives. However, this rent distorts the allocation of effort between activities. Specifically, it leads to a sub-optimal level of effort by driving a reallocation of resources from production to R&D. Consequently, the investor may not to appropriate the surplus resulting from the innovation. This distortion increases the cost of external financing for companies that have a large volume of intangible assets. Using Compustat manufacturing company data in the United States between 1982 and 2007, we have show that cash flow sensitivity is positive and increasing in companies with a high level of R&D intensities.
