4. Earnings Per Share
Basic earnings per common share allocated to common shareholders is computed by dividing net earnings by the weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per common share reflect the more dilutive earnings per common share amount calculated using the treasury stock method or the two-class method. In the first quarter of 2017, the treasury stock method is used to calculate diluted earnings per common share while the two-class method was used in the first quarter of 2016.
Basic and diluted earnings per common share allocated to common shareholders are computed using the actual net earnings allocated to common shareholders and the actual weighted-average common shares outstanding rather than the rounded numbers presented within our condensed consolidated statement of earnings and the accompanying notes. As a result, it may not be possible to recalculate earnings per common share allocated to common shareholders in our condensed consolidated statement of earnings and the accompanying notes. The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per common share allocated to common shareholders (in thousands, except per share amounts):
For the three months ended April 29, 2017 and April 30, 2016, 1.6 million and 1.2 million anti-dilutive shares of common stock were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per common share, respectively.
