  • 3. Sri Lanka Focus 6th January 2012 ASIA RESEARCH TEAM 3FeaturesAnalysis of Various Warrants Listed on the CSEThe below table depicts a comparison of the warrants trading price with its intrinsic value (derived through the BlackScholes Call option valuation method). The 6th column to the right depicts the difference between the intrinsic valueand the traded price. Hence, the positive figures would explain the potential for the respective warrant to furtherappreciate. Thus, the negative value would denote that the warrant is overvalued at the current price (assuming theunderlying stock price to be constant). However, it is noted that the intrinsic value is derived based on the currentvalue of the underlying stock price, its volatility, period to maturity and the risk free rate. Hence, any adversemovement of the mentioned assumptions would have an adverse impact on the warrant value, and any favourablemovement would positively impact the warrant value (E.g.: if in case the asset price appreciates from the existing, itwould invariably increase the value of the warrant.
