Threat of Exit as a Source of Bargaining Power

Fabian Bergès and Claire Chambolle ()

Recherches économiques de Louvain, 2009, vol. 75, issue 3, 353-368

Abstract: This article analyzes a simple two-period model where two homogenous manufacturers compete to supply a monopolist retailer. We show that if manufacturers are vulnerable (i.e if they are likely to exit the market in case of insufficient orders in the first period), they may exploit their threat of exit to capture the whole first period industry profit. Indeed, the retailer will accept to pay the high price to the manufacturers in order to secure upstream competition in the second period. Results are robust under different market structures or contract types. JEL Classification ? L14, D21, Q12.
