According to the WSO Dictionary,
"Dilution is a financial concept to represent a decrease in value and can apply to either a transaction or a bond. For both, it refers to the fact that value is lost purely on paper.
In a transaction, dilution is the decrease in Earnings Per Share after a merger or acquisition has taken place. If the Earnings Per Share decreases, then the transaction is usually seen as being a bad one."
