In a simple structural model, we derive closed form solutions for the market values of a defaultable firm's debt and equity when debt has a heterogeneous priority structure - under the form of senior and junior bonds - and the absolute priority rule prevails. The firm is subject to liquidity and solvency risks and liquidation is immediate upon bankruptcy. We investigate the two-sided issue of optimal capital structure and optimal debt priority. We also examine the spread differential between senior and junior bonds
