FAQ’s Warrants – Miami, Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach, Lighthouse Point and Boca Raton, Florida FINRA Arbitration and Litigation Attorney:

A warrant is a type of security, usually issued in conjunction with common or preferred stock, that entitles the holder to buy a proportionate amount of common stock at a specified price, usually higher than the market price at the time of issuance, for a period of years or to perpetuity.

Many times warrants are included as part of units issued in private placements.  The warrants are included as part of the units as a “kicker” to the investor to take on the risk associated with investing in the private placement.  Conversely, if the warrants are exercised, they provide the issuer with additional unsolicited funds.
