11 Earnings per share


Basic earnings per share are calculated by dividing profit attributable to shareholders of Volkswagen AG by the weighted average number of ordinary and preferred shares outstanding during the reporting period. Earnings per share are diluted by potential shares. These include stock options, although these are only dilutive if they result in the issuance of shares at a value below the average market price of the shares.

A dilutive effect arose in fiscal year 2009 from the sixth, seventh and eighth tranches of the stock option plan. However, it was so insignificant that it did not affect the reported earnings per share.
