Re: Warrants

Hi Harish,
Warrants are securities which give holder a right to buy company’s common stock on strike price until the expiry date. Warrants can be for the long time. If the current market price is above the strike price, that it can be sold in the market to make profit otherwise it will expire.
For example: Consider a warrant holder to purchase 100 shares of Company ABC for \$10 per share anytime in the next three years. If Company ABC shares rises to \$20, the warrant holder could purchase the shares for \$10 each, and immediately sell them for \$20 on the open market, generating a profit of (\$20 - \$10) x 100 shares = \$1,000. Thus, the minimum value of each warrant is \$10.

Re: Warrants

Hi Harish,
Warrant Premium= 100 * [(Warrant price + exercise price - current share price) / current share price]
So if an investor holds a warrant with a price of \$20, current market price is \$20 and exercise price is \$10( price at which warrant holder will buy the bond) then
= 100* [(\$20 + \$10 - \$20)/\$20
=100* [(\$30-\$20)/\$20]
=100* (\$10/\$200
=100* \$0.5
= \$50
