According to the WSO Dictionary,
"Accretion is a financial concept to represent an increase in value and can apply to either a transaction or a bond. For both, it refers to the fact that value is created purely on paper.
In a transaction, accretion is the increase in Earnings Per Share after a merger or acquisition has taken place. If the Earnings Per Share increases, then the transaction is seen as being a good one. The opposite of accretion is dilution."
