Put Warrant

(redirected from Put Warrants)

Put Warrant

A warrant attached to a share giving the shareholder the right to sell the share at a certain strike price on or before a stated expiration date. A put warrant operates much like a put option. The main difference is that a put option is a separate contract between two parties, while a put warrant is attached to a share directly, especially as a sweetener.
