Note 32 Earnings per share and equity per share

Accounting principles

Basic earnings per share, applicable to the owners of the parent company, are calculated by dividing the net profit attributable to shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the year, excluding ordinary shares purchased by the group and held as treasury shares. Diluted earnings per share are calculated by adjusting the weighted average number of ordinary shares plus the diluted effect of all potential dilutive ordinary shares dilutive such as shares from share-based payments.
