Broad-Based Weighted Average

DEFINITION of 'Broad-Based Weighted Average'

An anti-dilution provision used for the benefit of existing preferred shareholders when additional offerings are made by the corporation. The broad-based weighted average accounts for all equity previously issued and currently undergoing issue.

BREAKING DOWN 'Broad-Based Weighted Average'

The new weighted average price is adjusted for the preferred shareholder providing for protection against dilution. However, because all equity issued by the company is included in the weighting process, it is not as favorable as other weighting methods.
