36. Earnings Per Share
Basic net loss per share is based on the weighted average number of shares of Class A Common Stock issued and outstanding during the Successor periods. Diluted net loss per share is based on the weighted average number of shares of Class A Common Stock issued and outstanding and the effect of all dilutive common stock equivalents and potentially dilutive share based compensation awards outstanding during the Successor periods.
For the Predecessor periods, FoA Equity’s capital structure consisted of a single class of outstanding membership units, which were held by one member, UFG. Therefore, the Company has omitted earnings per unit for the Predecessor periods presented due to the limited number of LLC unit holders.
The following tables reconcile the numerators and denominators used in the computations of both basic and diluted net loss per share for the Successor periods (in thousands, except share data and per share amounts):
(1) The Class A LLC Units of FoA Equity, held by the Continuing Unitholders, which comprise the noncontrolling interest in the Company, represents a participating security. Therefore, the numerator was adjusted to reduce net loss by the amount of net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest.
Additionally, the Class B Common Stock does not participate in earnings or losses of the Company and, therefore, is not a participating security. The Class B Common Stock has not been included in either the basic or diluted net loss per share calculations.
Loss attributable to noncontrolling interest includes an allocation of expense related to the A&R MLTIP. See Note 26 - Equity-Based Compensation for additional details.
(1) This adjustment assumes the after-tax elimination of noncontrolling interest due to the assumed exchange of all Class A LLC Units outstanding for shares of Class A Common Stock in FoA as of the beginning of the period following the if-converted method for calculating diluted net loss per share.
Following the terms of the A&R LLC Agreement, the Class A LLC unitholders will bear approximately 85% of the cost of any vesting associated with the Replacement RSUs and Earnout Right RSUs prior to any distribution by the Company to such Class A LLC unitholders. The remaining compensation cost associated with the Replacement RSUs and Earnout Right RSUs will be born by FoA for the share attributable to Blocker. As a result of the application of the if-converted method in arriving at diluted net loss per share, the entirety of the compensation cost associated with vesting of the Replacement RSUs and Earnout Right RSUs is assumed to be included in the net loss attributable to holders of the Company’s Class A Common Stock.
(2) The diluted weighted average shares outstanding of Class A Common Stock includes the effects of the if-converted method to reflect the provisions of the Exchange Agreement and assumes the Class A LLC Units held by Continuing Unitholders, representing the noncontrolling interest, exchange their units on a one-for-one basis for shares of Class A Common Stock in FoA.
In addition to the Class A LLC Units, the Company also had RSUs outstanding during the Successor year ended December 31, 2022 and nine months ended December 31, 2021. The effects of the RSUs following the treasury stock method have been excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share given that the if-converted method was determined to be more dilutive.
