Abstract:     
This Article provides a practical guide for applying and understanding price-based antidilution protection – one of the principle financial terms negotiated by venture capitalists when making a portfolio company investment. In the process, it highlights some of the often surprising and unintended consequences of standard antidilution formulas in down-round settings, particularly on a company’s new investors. To avoid these results, the Article provides five guiding principles for venture capitalists to apply when negotiating an investment in a company having antidilution protection.
