    Share Count

    I've emailed IR about the share count and will post the reply.
    For calculating the per share loss they used:
    Weighted average common shares outstanding-diluted 168,075,012

    I've been using 189 million in all my calculations ... Yahoo uses 188.57 million. It changes the per share number by about 5-6 cents. You put that change with the restatement of Q1 (raised Q1 by 6 cents per share ... I think) ... and suddenly the results get a lot closer to the estimates.

    Anyone know why the share count is 168 million?

      We currently have 188,607,514 as of 8.7.13. The number you referred to is used for EPS calculations on a weighted average.

      Well that doesn't clear anything up. I didn't think the share count changed ... so to me the weighted average would be that everyday had 189 M shares, so Day1 x 189 + Day2 x 189 + ... Day90 x 189. All divided by 90 days ... that should be 189 M.

      Obviously I missed the share count change during the Q2.

      Oh well, that was the answer from IR anyway.
