10. Earnings per share
       
Earnings per share is calculated by dividing the profit for the period attributable to shareholders by the weighted average number of the shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share is calculated by adjusting the weighted average number by the dilutive effect of stock options outstanding during the period. The options have a dilutive effect if the exercise price with an option is lower than the market value of the share. During the reporting periods there were no programmes with dilutive effect.
