# Question: Mininova Corporation is preparing earnings per share data for 2012

Mininova Corporation is preparing earnings per share data for 2012. The net income for the year ended December 31, 2012, was \$400,000 and there were 60,000 common shares outstanding during the entire year. Mininova has the following two convertible securities outstanding:
10% convertible bonds (each \$1,000 bond is convertible into
25 common shares) .................. \$100,000
5% convertible \$100 par value preferred shares (each share
is convertible into two common shares) ......... 50,000
Both convertible securities were issued at face value in 2009. There were no conversions during 2012, and Mininova’s income tax rate is 34%. The preferred shares are cumulative. For simplicity, ignore the requirement to record the debt
and equity components of the bonds separately.
