What does the Shares buyback ratio mean?

A positive value indicates that the number of shares is declining, while negative values mean that the company is releasing new Common shares. A company can shrink its share base by buying stock back and slowing down the issuance of new shares. Conversely, a company can increase its share base by issuing new stock to raise money or give to employees.
