Why should investors be concerned about a firm’s outstanding warrants and convertibles?
The exercise of warrants and convertibles dilutes the share of earnings to existing shareholders because of the increase in the number of common stock shares once exercised.
In the case of convertibles, the number of shares will increase and share in earnings by existing shareholders will decrease. Only convertible securities that would dilute (decrease) the EPS will be of concern to the investors.
