$BID said that its share repurchase program executed in the past year has led to a significantly lower number of shares outstanding. The company now has 55.1MM shares outstanding versus 69.5MM shares a year ago, a 21% reduction. $BID still has another $43MM, which is available for further stock repurchases under the current authorization.
