IAS 33 Earnings per Share deals with the calculation and presentation of Earnings Per Share (EPS). It applies to entities whose ordinary shares or potential ordinary shares (for example, convertibles, options and warrants) are publicly traded. Non-public entities electing to present EPS must also follow the Standard.
An entity must present basic EPS and diluted EPS with equal prominence in the statement of comprehensive income. In consolidated financial statements, EPS measures are based on the consolidated profit or loss attributable to ordinary equity holders of the parent.
Dilution is a potential reduction in EPS or a potential increase in loss per share resulting from the assumption that convertible instruments are converted, options or warrants are exercised, or ordinary shares are issued upon the satisfaction of specified conditions.
When the entity also discloses profit or loss from continuing operations, basic EPS and diluted EPS must be presented in respect of continuing operations. Furthermore, if an entity reports a discontinued operation, it must present basic and diluted amounts per share for the discontinued operation either in the statement of comprehensive income or in the notes.
The denominators used in the basic EPS and diluted EPS calculation might be affected by share issues during the year; shares to be issued upon conversion of a convertible instrument; contingently issuable or returnable shares; bonus issues; share splits and share consolidation; the exercise of options and warrants; contracts that may be settled in shares; and contracts that require an entity to repurchase its own shares (written put options).
