The objective of AS 20, Earning per share, is to prescribe principles for the determination and presentation of earnings per share which will improve the comparison of performance among different enterprises for the same period and among different accounting periods for the same enterprise. This Standard focuses on the denominator of the earnings per share calculation. Even though earnings per share data has limitations because of different accounting policies used for determining ‘earnings’, a consistently determined denominator enhances the quality of financial reporting. This Standard requires the presentation of earnings per share information on the basis of consolidated financial statements as well as individual financial statements of the parent. In consolidated financial statements, such information is presented on the basis of consolidated information.

As per the stipulation of this standard, an entity must comply with the below-mentioned disclosure requirements:

I. For each class of equity shares, on the face of the statement of profit and loss that has a different right to share in the net profit for the period, whether the following has been presented:

a. Basic earnings per share before extraordinary items

b. Basic earnings per share after extraordinary items

c. Diluted earnings per share before extraordinary items

d. Diluted earnings per share after extraordinary items

II. Has the enterprise presented the basic and diluted earnings per share with equal prominence for all periods

III. Whether the enterprise has presented the basic and diluted earnings per share, even if the amounts disclosed are negative (a loss per share)

IV. When per-share calculations reflect changes in the number of equity or potential equity shares outstanding due to bonus issue, share split or reverse share split (consolidation of shares), whether before the balance sheet date or after that date but before approval by the board of directors, whether that fact has been disclosed
