    AKAM will buy back with free cash flow which they have been doing for last few years. This is to offset stock option compensation plus now to make use of low stock price. They have 1.5b cash and cash equivalent ( of this 600m is the secondary offering they raied ). Still leaves them with good cash flow. They are not taking loan for buyback.
