Net Loss per Share

Note 9. Net Loss per Share

Basic net loss per share is calculated by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the reporting period. A net loss cannot be diluted, so when the Company is in a net loss position, basic and diluted loss per common share are the same. If in the future the Company achieves profitability, the denominator of a diluted earnings per common share calculation will include both the weighted average number of shares outstanding and the number of common stock equivalents, if the inclusion of such common stock equivalents would be dilutive. Dilutive common stock equivalents include warrants, stock options, non-vested restricted stock units and employee stock purchase plan rights.

The Company’s outstanding warrants to purchase common stock have participation rights to any dividends that may be declared in the future and are therefore considered to be participating securities. Participating securities have the effect of diluting both basic and diluted earnings per share during periods of income. During periods of loss, no loss is allocated to the participating securities since the holders have no contractual obligation to share in the losses of the Company.

Anti-dilutive share equivalents excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share at March 31, 2022 consisted of warrants of 56,329,950, stock options of 106,380, restricted stock awards of 164,879, restricted stock units of 49,636 and Employee Stock Purchase Plan shares of 16,634.

Anti-dilutive share equivalents excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share at March 31, 2021 consisted of warrants of 2,345,033, stock options of 136,033, restricted stock awards of 325,429, restricted stock units of 38,922 and Employee Stock Purchase Plan shares of 3,200.
