Previously we look at Warrants, there are another type of warrants traded in Bursa Malaysia. We call it Call Warrants. Below are short brief explanation about Call Warrants.
Call Warrants give a right, but not an obligation, to buy a fixed number of stock shares at a specified price within a limited period of time. But unlike warrants, call warrants are issued by third parties based on existing stock shares. Therefore, they do not increase the issued capital or dilute the earnings of the company as a warrant do. Call warrants have maturity dates of not more than two (2) years
