Note 3 – Loss per Share


Basic and diluted loss per share is computed by dividing (i) loss available to common stockholders, by (ii) the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.


Basic loss per share excludes dilution and is computed by dividing loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted loss per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the income of the Company. For the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, basic loss per share is the same as diluted loss per share.


The following table sets forth the computation of the Company’s basic and diluted net loss per share during the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016:


    Year Ended December 31,  
    2017     2016  
Net loss from continuing operations   $ (50,921,024 )   $ (22,624,648 )
Deemed dividend from trigger of down round provision feature     (53,341,619 )     -  
Net loss attributable to common stockholders, continuing operations   $ (104,262,643 )   $ (22,624,648 )
Net loss from discontinued operations   $ (4,276,918 )   $ (9,989,039 )
Net loss   $ (108,539,561 )   $ (32,613,687 )
Basic and diluted weighted average common shares outstanding     2,308,090       72,062  
Loss per share, basic and diluted                
Basic and diluted, continuing operations   $ (45.17 )   $ (313.96 )
Basic and diluted, discontinued operations   $ (1.85 )   $ (138.62 )
Total basic and diluted   $ (47.02 )   $ (452.58 )


Diluted loss per share excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive. As of December 31, 2017 and 2016, the following potential common stock equivalents were excluded from the calculation of diluted loss per share as their effect was anti-dilutive:


    Year Ended December 31,  
    2017     2016  
Warrants     2,176,403,218       93,843  
Convertible preferred stock     179,781,292       248,444  
Convertible debentures     326,919,506       95,198  
Stock options     38,478       47,268  
      2,683,142,494       484,753  


The terms of certain of the warrants, convertible preferred stock and convertible debentures issued by the Company provide for reductions in the per share exercise prices of the warrants and the per share conversion prices of the debentures and preferred stock (if applicable and subject to a floor in certain cases), in the event that the Company issues common stock or common stock equivalents (as that term is defined in the agreements) at an effective exercise/conversion price that is less than the then exercise/conversion prices of the outstanding warrants, preferred stock and debentures. In addition, the majority of these equity-based securities contain prices that vary based upon the price of the Company’s common stock on the date of exercise/conversion (see Notes 8, 11 and 12). These provisions have resulted in significant dilution of the Company’s common stock and have given rise to reverse splits of the Company’s common stock. As a result of these down round provisions, the potential common stock and common stock equivalents totaled 17.3 billion at April 1, 2018. See Note 13 regarding a discussion of the number of shares of the Company’s authorized common stock.
