The Company distributes software developed by others to resellers who in turn sell to end customers worldwide. The Company also resells computer software and hardware developed by others and provides technical services directly to customers in the United States of America (“USA”) and Canada.

Restatement of Earnings Per Share
Earnings per share two-class method
Earnings per share for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 has been recalculated and restated using the two-class method and presented on a comparable basis with 2017. In 2017 the Company determined it should be reporting earnings per share using the two-class method in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC’) 260-10-45-60, which treats unvested restricted shares granted under our 2012 Stock-Based Compensation Plan that are entitled to receive non-forfeitable dividends as participating securities. While the Company has determined the impact of applying the two-class method does not have a material impact on previously issued financial statements, it is appropriate to recalculate and restate amounts presented on a comparative and consistent basis with current period results. The table below summarizes previously reported and restated amounts on a comparative basis. See footnote 2, Earnings Per Share for more detail on the impact of the two-class method calculation on previously reported earnings per share.
