Earnings Per Share (“EPS”) and Earnings Per Unit (“EPU”)
COPT and Subsidiaries EPS
We present both basic and diluted EPS. We compute basic EPS by dividing net income available to common shareholders allocable to unrestricted common shares under the twoclass method by the weighted average number of unrestricted common shares outstanding during the period. Our computation of diluted EPS is similar except that:


• 
the denominator is increased to include: (1) the weighted average number of potential additional common shares that would have been outstanding if securities that are convertible into COPT common shares were converted; and (2) the effect of dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period attributable to sharebased compensation using the treasury stock or ifconverted methods; and 


• 
the numerator is adjusted to add back any changes in income or loss that would result from the assumed conversion into common shares that we added to the denominator. 
Summaries of the numerator and denominator for purposes of basic and diluted EPS calculations are set forth below (in thousands, except per share data):

The following sharebased compensation securities were excluded from the computation of diluted EPS because their effect was antidilutive:


• 
weighted average restricted shares for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 of 420,000 and 379,000, respectively, and for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 of 405,000 and 394,000, respectively; and



• 
weighted average options for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 of 496,000 and 536,000, respectively, and

for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 of 512,000 and 537,000, respectively.
As discussed in Note 8, we have outstanding senior notes that have an exchange settlement feature, but such notes did not affect our diluted EPS reported above since the weighted average closing price of COPT’s common shares during each of the periods was less than the exchange prices per common share applicable for such periods.
COPLP and Subsidiaries EPU
We present both basic and diluted EPU. We compute basic EPU by dividing net income available to common unitholders allocable to unrestricted common units under the twoclass method by the weighted average number of unrestricted common units outstanding during the period. Our computation of diluted EPU is similar except that:


• 
the denominator is increased to include: (1) the weighted average number of potential additional common units that would have been outstanding if securities that are convertible into our common units were converted; and (2) the effect of dilutive potential common units outstanding during the period attributable to sharebased compensation using the treasury stock or ifconverted methods; and 


• 
the numerator is adjusted to add back any changes in income or loss that would result from the assumed conversion into common units that we added to the denominator. 
Summaries of the numerator and denominator for purposes of basic and diluted EPU calculations are set forth below (in thousands, except per unit data):
