    Share repurchase

    Did I read correctly? The share buyback is used exclusively to give employees more shares. This is taking from shareholders to give employees more. Seems to me that the employees are paid pretty well (at least the ones who get shares). Why don' they focus on increasing revenue or retire shares. There is a lot of time and money put into buying companies then consolidating operations back to Burlington for small gains. Have any of the acquisitions turned into big winners for the company? seems like each one has cost multiples more than the original price, and many of the products have gone quiet or have been discontinued. How may shares does the head of M&A receive for such adding value?
