A Rent Extraction Theory of Right of First Refusal
No 759, Econometric Society 2004 Far Eastern Meetings from Econometric Society
When a seller gives a buyer a right of first refusal, although it reduces the competing buyers' profits and creates an inefficiency, it always increases the joint profit of the seller and the right holder. Right of first refusal with a consideration (e.g., a payment from the right holder to the seller) allows the seller and the right holder to extract more surplus from the competing buyers
