Earnings per share

Earnings per share (EPS) are calculated:

  • by dividing the net profit attributable to the holders of ordinary shares by the average number of ordinary shares for the period, less treasury shares (basic EPS);
  • by dividing the net result by the average number of ordinary shares and the shares that potentially result from the exercise of all the options under stock option plans, less treasury shares (diluted EPS).
