Porter Corporation owns all 30,000 shares of the common stock of Street, Inc. Porter has 60,000 shares of its own common stock outstanding. During the current year, Porter earns income (without any consideration of its investment in Street) of $150,000 while Street reports $130,000. Annual amortization of $10,000 is recognized each year on the consolidation worksheet based on acquisition date fair-value allocations. Both companies have convertible bonds outstanding. During the current year, interest expense (net of taxes) is $32,000 for Porter and $24,000 for Street. Porter’s bonds can be converted into 8,000 shares of common stock; Street’s bonds can be converted into 10,000 shares.
Porter owns none of these bonds. What are the earnings per share amounts that Porter should report in its current year consolidated income statement?
