In [5], the Laplace transform was found of the last time a spectrally negative Lévy process, which drifts to innity, is below some level. The main motivation for the study of this random time stems from risk theory: what is the last time the risk process, modeled by a spectrally negative Lévy process drifting to infinity, is zero? In this paper we extend the result found in [5] and we derive the Laplace transform of the last time before an independent, exponentially distributed time, that a spectrally negative Lévy process (without any further conditions) exceeds (upwards or downwards) or hits a certain level. As an application we extend a result found by Doney in [6].
