(b) If there has been a bonus issue in a particluare year, do we need to make any adjustments to previously reported earings per share?
a) Calculation of Basic EPS:
|Profit Before Tax (PBT)||5597000|
|Profit After Tax (PAT)||3750000|
Weighted Avg No. of Equity Shares = 9750000 + [(3250000*2)/2.3]*61/365 =10222305 shares
BEPS = Earnings available to Equity Shares / Weighted Avg No. of Equity Shares
= 0.3668 per share
Calculation of Dilutive EPS:-
Dilutive EPS = (3750000 + 0) / (10222305 + 1000000*1/2)
= 0.3497 per share
b) If there has been a bonus issue in a particluare year, do we need to make any adjustments to previously reported earings per share?
Ans:- Yes, if we have issued bonus shares in the current year or in any particular year, then we need to disclose Adjusted or Restated Basic EPS as well as Dilutive EPS.
