Stock Warrant

A certificate issued by a corporation that entitles the person holding it to buy a certain amount of stock in the corporation, usually at a specified time and price.

A stock warrant differs from a stock option only in that an option is offered to employees and a warrant to the general public. A warrant gives the person holding it a right to subscribe to capital stock.
