14. Earnings per Share
Basic net income per common share is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period. For the calculation of diluted earnings per share, the basic weighted average number of shares is increased by the dilutive effect of stock options, common warrants, restricted stock and Convertible Notes using the treasury stock method.
The Company accounts for the effect of the Convertible Notes on diluted net income per share using the treasury stock method since they may be settled in cash, shares or a combination thereof at the Company’s option. As a result, the Convertible Notes have no effect on diluted net loss per share until the Company’s stock price exceeds the conversion price of $62.88 per share, or if the trading price of the Convertible Notes meet certain criteria as described in Note 11. In the period of conversion, the Convertible Notes will have no impact on diluted net income if the Convertible Notes are settled in cash and will have an impact on dilutive net income per share if the Convertible Notes are settled in shares upon conversion.
The following table provides a reconciliation of the numerators and denominators used in computing basic and diluted net income per share attributable to common stockholders:
Common share equivalents for securities that were anti-dilutive and therefore excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share are as follows:
