Contingent shares
« on: March 27, 2014, 01:02:49 PM »
Contingent shares are the shares of company stock that are issued only if certain conditions are met. Contingent shares are similar to stock options, warrants and other convertible instruments in that there is a level of uncertainty associated with their issue. For example, for contingent shares to be issued, the corporation must generate earnings that exceed a certain threshold. Contingent shares are also important for common stock holders since the contingent shares can dilute the ownership of existing shareholders. [Source:http://www.investopedia.com]
