Net loss per share [Abstract]  
Net loss per share
Net loss per share
Basic loss per share of common stock is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.  Diluted earnings or loss per share of common stock is computed similarly to basic earnings or loss per share except the weighted average shares outstanding are increased to include additional shares from the assumed exercise of any common stock equivalents, if dilutive. The Company’s warrants, convertible notes, restricted stock awards and stock options while outstanding are considered common stock equivalents for this purpose. Diluted earnings is computed utilizing the treasury method for the warrants, restricted stock awards and stock options. Diluted earnings with respect to the convertible notes utilizing the if-converted method was not applicable during the periods presented as no conditions required for conversion had occurred. No incremental common stock equivalents were included in calculating diluted loss per share because such inclusion would be anti-dilutive given the net loss reported for the periods presented. The historical share and per share data for periods prior to the November 5, 2020 closing of the Merger have been adjusted to give effect to the Exchange Ratio.

The following potential common shares were not considered in the computation of diluted net loss per share as their effect would have been anti-dilutive for the three month periods ended presented below:
