Net Income per Common Share
Basic net income per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during each period. Diluted net income per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares and common share equivalents outstanding (if dilutive) during each period. The number of common share equivalents, which includes options and both restricted and performance stock units, is computed using the treasury stock method. With regard to the performance stock units, we assumed that the associated performance targets will be met at the target level of performance for purposes of calculating diluted net income per common share for fiscal 2014 and 2013, the only periods in which the performance stock units were outstanding.
The reconciliation of the denominators used to calculate basic EPS and diluted EPS for fiscal 2014, fiscal 2013, and fiscal 2012, respectively, is as follows:
For the year ended March 31, 2014, 168,118 equity awards were not included in the calculation of diluted net income per common share since they would have had an anti-dilutive effect. In fiscal 2013 and 2012, all equity awards were dilutive and included in the calculation above.
