Abstract: We reconsider Banerjee and Lin [International Journal of Industrial Organization, 2003] by investigating the role of spillovers (or informational flows) for the profitability of input-price contracts in a vertically related industry. We show that spillovers influence the relative magnitude of the main forces operating in the model, which can either reinforce or alter some of the predictions.
