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 and nine month periods ended December 31, 2019 and 2018:
All of the stock-based compensation expense recorded during the nine months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, which totaled $755,648 and $944,512, respectively, is included in payroll and related expense in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. Stock-based compensation expense recorded during the nine months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 represented an impact on basic and diluted loss per common share of $(0.41) and $(0.79), respectively.
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 nine months ended December 31, 2019 was insignificant.
