.... I currently have 100+ shares... so I would have 90+?....

Hi foolishwelder!

NZT's buyback ( and most other company buy-backs ) will be via regular market purchases, so the number of shares you have won't change one bit...unless you sell them to someone! And then you'll never know if NZT bought them...or someone else!

What will happen due to the company buying back so many shares, is that ( all other things, such as earnings, being equal ), each share remaining in the open market ( like yours and mine ) will be more valuable. Said another way, the same amount of earnings will be spread over fewer shares, thus EPS goes up...and the stock value per share generally feeds off EPS in the long term.

Cheers!
Murph
