For example I am looking at the stock ticker $USER.

I know that it does not include employee options (I think) but does it include other dilutive shares or not? Usually companies have 2 parts for this, basic and diluted average shares where diluted presumably included this stuff, however looking at the $USER stock it seems as though they do not break it out into basic and diluted which is confusing me.

In includes vested restricted shares. If you look at the Statement of Stockholder's Equity on page 71, you'll see the accounting:

  • Ah thanks, I didn't know I could look at that line item for it. I see it also says exercise stock options. So that means that $USER common stock includes both vested RSU's and also employee stock options that have vested/exercised as well right? Mar 23, 2022 at 14:15

    Yes, that is how I interpret it. ESOs (and RSUs) typically are exercised by the company issuing stock, not taken from the open market, so that would increase shares outstanding.
