In this question, it is given that potential shares will rank for dividend from 2020. So, why will it dilute EPS in 2017-18?
But it will not happen in next 2 years which implies that the earnings will not have impact for atleast 2 years, so can we consider it to be not diluted for those 2 years?
Dividend will not be paid. But if the potential shares are converted, the earnings per share will be reduced.
