Anti-Dilution Clause

Contractual clause that protects an investor from having their investment as a percentage of ownership significantly reduced in subsequent rounds of fundraising. The method of total protection from dilution is called a Full Ratchet, and ensures that should a fundraising round cause a previous investor's ownership percentage to decrease as a result of newly issued shares, they will be given the opportunity to maintain their ownership level.
