Agreed not in the context of company 'value' but as a shareholder a 30% dilution is not welcome. Understand the need that to get where we are today/going' required those dilution terms. As far as retail investors go, other than a small minority, I do not believe the subject of dilution crosses people's minds. Institutional investors may be a different story. Those who benefit from the dilution may well find a need to sell shares in the open market (a little like Crystal Amber is doing at the moment) so this may well depress the share price.I don't see that it has much impact on "value".
Timing, company progress, price of oil and corporate activity are all factors which make predicting what will happen a futile exercise; what I would suggest however is that it is probably advantageous for retail investors to accumulate their final shareholding over the coming few weeks rather than leave it until later. But that would be timing the market which I have failed to do for my advantage for 25+ years!
