Exercise (warrants)

To make use of the rights vested in a warrant.

American options can be exercised on any bank business day during the entire exercise period. By contrast, European options can only be exercised on the expiration date. In some cases, the terms and conditions of the warrant stipulate that the warrant can only be exercised during a very specific time frame.
