(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?

Solution:-

a) Calculation of Basic EPS:

 Profit Before Tax (PBT) 5597000 Less: Tax Expense 1847000 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

= 3750000/10222305

= 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.
