Newpark Resources's SIR currently stands at 2.8. In other words for every 100,000 Newpark Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2800 shares are currently held short.
However Newpark Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Newpark Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable Newpark Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Newpark Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Newpark Resources shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Newpark Resources shares, roughly 18 shares are currently held short).
