Stockopedia explains Shares 5y CAGR %...

This is a measure of equity dilution. When the number of shares outstanding increases, each existing stockholder will own a smaller, or diluted, percentage of the company, making each share less valuable. An increase in the number of shares outstanding can result from a placement, employees exercising stock, or by conversion of convertible bonds, preferred shares or warrants into shares.

If a company has been buying back shares, this number will be negative.
