Anti-dilution

InvestingAnswers

 

An anti-dilution provision is a clause in an option, security, or merger agreement that gives the investor the right to maintain his or her percentage ownership of a company by buying a proportionate number of shares of any future issue of the security. Anti-dilution provisions are sometimes called “subscription rights,” “preemptive rights,” or “subscription privileges.” Anti-dilution provisions are particularly relevant for convertible preferred stock.
