    Need Help Shutting Up BSer on XIN Stock - If Company buyback shares, where can find proof? Doesn't Sh Outstanding dwindle?

    I don't know if there is a legal document to show the numbers of buybacks, but we can do the math. First, look at the basic weighted average numbers of shares outstanding rather than the diluted numbers of shares outstanding. So, you can at least back out the effect of option value. However, options exercised and shares issued to insiders will increase the basic numbers of shares. Typically, we can use cash flow statement to figure the numbers of new issued shares. Also, cash flow statement can sure the amount spent on share retirement. We can estimate the the average price paid by the company during the period to verify the numbers of share retired.

    Most companies report the amount spent on share buybacks and the average price paid during a given period.
