In this case MiX Telematics's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MiX Telematics shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MiX Telematics shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).
