Any issue of risky debt is equivalent to a weighted average of risk-free debt and equity. The managers are indifferent between this weighted average (risky debt) and the individual components. Letting “w” denote the amount raised by risk-free debt, the cost of any combination of risk-free debt and equity is: w  K − w   K − w   EM (y2 ) − w  +    K  K   ET (y2 ) − w   K − w  w  K − w   EM (y2 ) − w  = +   >1 K  K   ET (y2 ) − w  for any w < K since EM(y2) > ET(y2). Now assume that By2 < K so that cash flow in the bad state is now insufficient to pay the required initial investment and the manager can no longer issue risk-free debt to finance the entire amount K.
