A ubiquitous term that refers to a decrease in an investor’s ownership level or a company’s market value, book value, or earnings per share. Ownership levels are diluted when additional shares are sold and existing shareholders don’t buy the shares. An increase in the shares outstanding also dilutes a company’s book value and earnings per share. Often, merger transactions are said to be dilutive to current shareholders.
