A note on auctions with compulsory partnership

Resumo

We study a symmetric, profit share, common value auction with a twist: One (fixed) Bidder, if not winning the auction, has to enter a partnership with the winner, sharing both expenses and revenue at rate (say) 0 < λ < 1. We show that it doesn't have an equilibrium in pure-strategies.
