In this case Axcelis Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Axcelis Technologies shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0253% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Axcelis Technologies shares, roughly 25 shares are currently held short).
