Earnings Per Share:
Companies report EPS usually together with their annual results. Earnings per share also generates the income attributable to each share. Investors don't just look at basic EPS but also diluted EPS to know the potential dilution in the company.
Answer and Explanation:
Determine the weighted-average number of shares outstanding as of December 31, 2015.
|Weighted Average Number of Shares|
|January 1||200,000 shares x 112% x 1.5||336,000 shares|
|March 1||125,000 shares x 112% x 1.5 x (10 / 12)||175,000 shares|
|August 1||24,000 shares x 1.5 x (5 / 12)||(15,000 shares)|
