In this case Eastman Kodak Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eastman Kodak Company shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.2062% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eastman Kodak Company shares, roughly 206 shares are currently held short).
