9. STOCK COMPENSATION

 

The following tables summarize share-based compensation expenses relating to RSUs and stock options and the effect on basic and diluted loss per common share during the three month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018:

 

    Three Months

    Three Months

Vesting of stock options and restricted stock units   $ 326,536     $ 263,162  
Total stock-based compensation expense   $ 326,536     $ 263,162  
                 
Weighted average number of common shares outstanding – basic and diluted     19,057,255       17,754,728  
                 
Basic and diluted loss per common share attributable to stock-based compensation expense   $ (0.02 )   $ (0.01 )

 

All of the stock-based compensation expense recorded during the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, which totaled $326,536 and $263,162, respectively, is included in payroll and related expense in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.  Stock-based compensation expense recorded during the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 represented an impact on basic and diluted loss per common share of $(0.02) in both periods.

  

We review share-based compensation on a quarterly basis for changes to the estimate of expected award forfeitures based on actual forfeiture experience. The cumulative effect of adjusting the forfeiture rate for all expense amortization is recognized in the period the forfeiture estimate is changed. The effect of forfeiture adjustments for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was insignificant.
