3. Earnings/Loss Per Share
Basic earnings or loss per share is computed by dividing net income or loss available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income or loss available to common shareholders by the number of fully diluted shares, which includes the effect of dilutive potential issuances of common shares as determined using income from continuing operations, including the potential issuance of common shares upon the exercise, conversion or vesting of outstanding stock options and unvested restricted shares, as calculated under the treasury stock method, as well as shares associated with convertible loan which was converted to common stock during the 2016 fiscal year. When the Company reports a net loss, rather than net income, from continuing operations, the computation of diluted loss per share excludes dilutive common stock equivalents as their effect would be anti-dilutive. Therefore, weighted average dilutive common shares would be excluded from the calculation. The Company reported a net loss from continuing operations for the three (3) and six (6) months ended March 31, 2017 and had no dilutive common stock equivalents at March 31, 2016 that affected diluted net loss per share for the related period.
Potentially dilutive securities, which consisted of outstanding stock options and other compensation arrangements not included in dilutive weighted average shares were approximately 1.0 million and 1.8 million for the three (3) months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively and 1.0 million and 1.8 million for the six (6) months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.
