8. Earnings per share
Basic earnings/(loss) per share is calculated by dividing the profit/(loss) attributable to shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period.
Diluted earnings per share is computed similar to basic earnings per share, except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional ordinary shares that would have been outstanding if potential ordinary shares had been issued if such additional ordinary shares were dilutive. The share options and RSUs are dilutive and therefore have been included in the calculation for diluted earnings per share.
The average market value of the Company’s shares for the purpose of calculating the dilutive effect of share options and RSUs was based on quoted market prices for the year during which the options were outstanding.
Prior to the reverse recapitalisation, the EPS of the combined company is presented on the basis of Arqit Limited shares outstanding, adjusted using the share exchange ratio of 46.06.
