Adjusted undiluted headline earnings
Circular 07/02 issued by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants requires that profits and losses on the sale of property, plant and equipment be excluded from the calculation of headline earnings. The directors consider that, given the nature of Textainer's business model, this treatment of profits and losses on sales of used containers from its leasing fleet is not appropriate for a proper understanding of the results of the group. Accordingly, adjusted undiluted headline earnings per share, which includes profits and losses on the sale of used containers, is also presented for information.
Headline earnings (as above)122,37,043,5
Profit on sale of used containers 7,40,88,6
Adjusted undiluted headline earnings129,77,852,1
Adjusted undiluted headline earnings per share (cents) 14,4 0,9 5,8
4.1 The dilution arises as a result of any future conversion of debentures. The directors are of the opinion that the debentures will not be converted in the foreseeable future and therefore no dilution is anticipated for the foreseeable future.
