Accounting What the Numbers Mean 10e Demonstration Problem Chapter 10 – Exercise 8 Calculate EPS and Effect of Stock Split on EPS

Problem Definition During the year ended December 31, 2014, Gluco, Inc., split its stock on a 3-for-1 basis. In its annual report for 2013, the firm reported net income of \$7,407,840 for 2013, with an average 1,073,600 shares of common stock outstanding for that year. There was no preferred stock.

Problem Definition What amount of net income for 2013 will be reported in Gluco’s 2014 annual report? Calculate Gluco’s earnings per share for 2013 that would have been reported in the 2013 annual report. Calculate Gluco’s earnings per share for 2013 that will be reported in the 2014 annual report for comparative purposes.

Problem Solution a. Net income for 2013 reported in Gluco’s
2014 annual report = \$7,407,840 Stock dividends and stock splits do not cause changes to reported earnings amounts.

Problem Definition What amount of net income for 2013 will be reported in Gluco’s 2014 annual report? Calculate Gluco’s earnings per share for 2013 that would have been reported in the 2013 annual report. Calculate Gluco’s earnings per share for 2013 that will be reported in the 2014 annual report for comparative purposes.

Problem Solution b. Earnings per share =

Problem Solution b. Earnings per share = Net income

Problem Solution b. Earnings per share = Net income \$7,407,840

Problem Solution b. Earnings per share = Net income \$7,407,840
/ Weighted-average number of shares outstanding

Problem Solution b. Earnings per share = Net income \$7,407,840
/ Weighted-average number of shares outstanding 1,073,600

Problem Solution b. Earnings per share = Net income \$7,407,840
/ Weighted-average number of shares outstanding 1,073,600 = \$6.90

Problem Definition What amount of net income for 2013 will be reported in Gluco’s 2014 annual report? Calculate Gluco’s earnings per share for 2013 that would have been reported in the 2013 annual report. Calculate Gluco’s earnings per share for 2013 that will be reported in the 2014 annual report for comparative purposes.

Problem Solution For the EPS calculation in 2014, the weighted-average number of shares outstanding in 2013 must reflect the 3-for-1 stock split in 2014. c.

Problem Solution For the EPS calculation in 2014, the weighted-average number of shares outstanding in 2013 must reflect the 3-for-1 stock split in 2014. c. EPS = Net income / Weighted-average number of shares outstanding
