Winona Company began 2019 with 10,000 shares of $10 par common stock and 2,000 shares of 9.4%, $100 par, convertible preferred stock outstanding. On April 2 and June 1, respectively, the company issued 2,000 and 6,000 additional shares of common stock. On November 16, Winona declared a 2-for-1 stock split. The preferred stock was issued in 2018. Each share of preferred stock is currently convertible into 4 shares of common stock. To date, no preferred stock has been converted. Current dividends have been paid on both preferred and common stock. Net income after taxes for 2019 totaled $109,800. The company is subject to a 30% income tax rate. The common stock sold at an average market price of $24 per share during 2019.

    1. a. basic earnings per share

(Figure 2)

(3) Calculate the increase in the share options:
