Ok i understand that....


For Basic Earnings per Share


How did you come up with 150,000-28500/29718?


I know how you got 29718, but I do not know how you got the 150,000 and the 28500

Preferred stock dividend = 7.5% of 100 which is equal to $7.5 , multiply it by 3800 = 3800*7.5 = 28500

Ok I understand that, but how did you get the 150,000? Is it supposed to be the net income of $150,500, instead of 150,000 or is that number coming from somewhere else?
Yes it should be $150500

I guess my next question is indeed how did you get 29718? I understand the logic behind how you did it..... this is how i attempted the WASO


25,000x7/12x1.2= 17500





obviously that doesnt add up to yours.... the 1.2= 20% stock dividend


what am i doing wrong? Only reason i ask this way, is because our teacher does it this way, so im curious

Why you are mutliplying by 1.2, the stock dividend affect is on sept 8 and it is only for one item, so how can you apply to each item, specially before sept 8, thanks.

ok thank you.....


I have one question left,


where did you get 185724/53692 in adjusted net income/net shares??



all the caclulations have been shown, the addition has been made for bond if converted to shares for net shares and for adjusted income the interest after tax saving has been added to net income of 150500.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
