When an option or warrant has 'intrinsic value', it is in-the-money. For a call option or a warrant, this is when the asset price exceeds the exercise price of the option. For example, a call option on a share with an exercise price of 100p when the share price is 110p is in-the-money. For a put option, it is when the exercise price exceeds the asset price. For example, a put option on a share with an exercise price of 100p when the share price is 90p is in-the-money. Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein financial glossary
