FXCM Inc. Just Filed Its Quarterly Report: Earnings per ShareOn...

On October 1, 2015, the Company effected a one-for-ten reverse stock split of the Corporation's issued and outstanding Class A common stock (see Note 1). As a result, all references to number of Class A common shares, number of Holdings Units, price per share and weighted average shares of Class A common stock have been adju sted to reflect the one-for-ten reverse stock split on a retroactive basis for all periods presented, unless otherwise noted.

Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) measures the performance of an entity over the reporting period. Diluted EPS measures the performance of an entity over the reporting period while giving effect to all potentially dilutive instruments that were outstanding during the period. The Company uses the treasury stock method in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share (“ASC 260”), to determine diluted EPS. Due to the Corporation's loss from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, any potential common shares were not included in the computation of diluted EPS as they would have had an antidilutive effect since the shares would decrease the loss per share. As a result, basic and diluted net loss per share of Class A common stock are equal for each of these periods.

In accordance with ASC 260, all outstanding unvested share-based payments that contain rights to non-forfeitable dividends participate in the undistributed earnings with the common stockholders and are therefore participating securities. The Company's unvested restricted stock units ("RSUs") do not contain rights to dividends or dividend equivalents. As a result, unvested RSUs are not considered participating securities and are therefore not required to be included in computing basic EPS under the two-class method. The shares of Class B common stock do not share in the earnings of the Company and are not considered participating securities. Accordingly, basic and diluted net earnings per share of Class B common stock have not been presented.

In April 2015, the Company entered into an option agreement with a customer as part of a negative equity balance settlement and issued an immediately vested, two-year option to purchase 56,934 shares of Class A common stock of FXCM Inc. The option has a strike price of...
