Earnings per Share
The computation of basic earnings per share is based on the number of weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period. The computation of diluted earnings per share for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended October 28, 2012
and October 30, 2011, respectively, includes the dilutive effect of common stock equivalents consisting of incremental common shares deemed outstanding from the assumed exercise of stock options, RSUs and RSAs.
6. Earnings per Share (continued)
A reconciliation of the numerators and denominators of the basic and diluted earnings per share calculations follows (in thousands, except share and per share amounts):
For the Thirteen Weeks Ended
For the Thirty-Nine Weeks Ended
Net income available to common stockholders (numerator for basic and diluted earnings per share)
Weighted average common shares outstanding (denominator for basic earnings per share)
Potential common shares outstanding:
Incremental shares from share-based awards
Weighted average common shares outstanding and potential additional common shares outstanding (denominator for diluted earnings per share)
Basic and diluted earnings per share
For the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended October 28, 2012, there were 229,000 and 243,000 shares excluded from the computation of diluted weighted average common shares outstanding because such shares are considered antidilutive. There were no antidilutive shares for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended October 30, 2011.
