Doubt it. The thought of it maybe as it's effect on the EPS but it is only 41 million shares or around 8 days trading volume that they will spread out over the year. Share buy back plans are a waste. The company issues more options and warrants then buys them back which has no effect on share dilution. What seriously would put EA on the map is if they took that money and started a dividend. That would bring in a huge new investor clientele in money managers and investment funds that require a dividend.
