That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Emergent BioSolutions's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.55. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

In this case Emergent BioSolutions's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Emergent BioSolutions shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0684% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Emergent BioSolutions shares, roughly 68 shares are currently held short).
