Abstract: The paper demonstrates that if to allow renegotiation of the contract terms, then the result on profits in Alipranti et al.(2014) may be reversed, that is downstream firms may earn more under Bertrand competition than under Cournot competition. Furthermore, in equilibrium each downstream firm chooses price as a strategic variable.
