In this case Certara's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Certara shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0241% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Certara shares, roughly 24 shares are currently held short).
