Numerator / Denominator = Earnings per share

Earnings per Share:

Earnings per share are calculated after calculating the net profit of the earnings of the company, It is calculated on the remaining earnings after distributing the preferred share and the same is divided with the weighted average shares (common).

Answer and Explanation:

1)

The weighted average number of share = (350 x (12/12)) million + (42 x (4/12)) million

The weighted average number of share = 350 million - (42 x (1/3)) million

The weighted average number of share = (350 - 14) million

The weighted average number of share = 336million

Earning per share = (Net income - Preferred share) / The weighted average number of share =

Earning per share = ($570 million - 0) / 336 million

Earning per share (Basic) = $1.70 per share

Calculating Earning per share (Diluted ):

Convertible bonds into shares = 45 million

Interest net of tax not paid = 200 Million x 10% x 60% = 12 million

Weighted share for the diluted EPS = (336 + 45) million = 381 million

Net profit for diluted Earning per share = (570 + 12) million = 582 million

The EPS diluted = (582 / 381) = $1.53 per share

Numerator / Denominator = Earnings per share
Basic 570 / 336 = $1.70
Diluted 582 / 381 = $1.53
