Beginning of year

$3,374,960

1,285,000

End of year

1,200,000

Average

Earnings per share:
$3,374,960
1,242,500

= $2.72 per share

You have developed the following additional information.

1. There are no other equity securities in addition to the common shares.

2. There are no options or warrants outstanding to purchase common shares.

3. There are no convertible debt securities.

4. Activity in common shares during the year was as follows.

Questions:
1. On the basis of the information above, do you agree with the controller’s computation of earnings per share for the year? If you disagree, prepare a revised computation of earnings per share

2. Assume the same facts as those presented above, except that options had been issued to purchase 140,000 shares of common stock at $10 per share. These options were outstanding at the beginning of the year, and none had been exercised or canceled during the year. The average market price of the common shares during the year was $25, and the ending market price was $35. What earnings per share amounts will be reported?
