Basic and diluted income (loss) per common share
We compute net loss per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share. Under the provisions of ASC 260, basic net loss per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing the net loss available to common stockholders for the period by the weighted average number of shares of Common Stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share takes into consideration shares of Common Stock outstanding (computed under basic net loss per share) and potentially dilutive securities that are not anti-dilutive.
Outstanding warrants that had no effect on the computation of dilutive weighted average number of shares outstanding as their effect would be antidilutive were 6,942,113 and 7,355,166 as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. There were 87,456 and 4,500 potentially dilutive shares outstanding at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.
At September 30, 2018, assumed conversion of Series Q Preferred Stock into Common Stock would be anti-dilutive and is not included in calculating diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding. There were no Series Q Preferred Stock issued at September 30, 2017.
