Acquired treasury stock for cash, 8/1 135,600   
2-for-1 stock split, 10/1
Compute earnings per share. (Round answer to 2 decimal places, e.g. $2.55.)

Exercise 16-24

The current conversion ratio is 14:1, and in 2 years it will increase to 20:1. At the date of issue, the bonds were sold at 97. Bond discount is amortized on a straight-line basis. Sweet's effective tax was 40%. Net income in 2017 was $8,000,000, and the company had 2,015,000 shares outstanding during the entire year.
