Questions tagged [warrant]

A warrant is an option on a stock issued by that stock company. Warrants are often issued attached to bonds (with the warrant expiring on the bond's maturity date). When a warrant is exercised, new shares are issued. This dilutes current shareholders and is often used to pay back the bondholders from the warrant issuance.
