35 Earnings per share in accordance with IAS 33
|Consolidated net loss for the year (€ thousand)||– 248,707||– 228,507|
|Number of shares in thousands (weighted average)||77,643||77,643|
|Undiluted earnings per share (€)||– 3.20||– 2.94|
|Diluted earnings per share (€)||– 3.20||– 2.94|
The undiluted earnings per share are calculated by dividing the consolidated net loss for the year by the weighted average number of the shares outstanding in the reporting year of 77,643 thousand (previous year: 77,643 thousand shares). Earnings per share can be diluted by so-called potential shares that could have arisen from the issuance of the convertible bond. As a result of the full repayment of the convertible bond in the year under review, there was no dilutive effect as a result of the inclusion of potential shares owing to the convertible bond as of the balance sheet date. Please see note 26 Shareholders’ equity for our comments on the structure of the convertible bond.
