We've been going over our latest quarterly reports and we've been discussing implementing an Account Buyback, similar to a share repurchasing that that publicly traded companies undertake when they feel the current value and projected long term value of the shares is such that repurchasing will provide a great investment (not to mention the increase in dividend yield).

So yes, we feel that accounts at the moment are valuable, but the projected future value is such that a large scale account buyback will benefit us tremendously. We can then, in the future, re-issue accounts at their new market value in the future.

A quick check of the Wikipedia article on buy-backs makes a comment that companies can profit handsomely when a large portion of shares are held by unsophisticated investors. That you would be thinking about participating in such a scheme has, of course, no bearing on whether one would consider you unsophisticated or otherwise. None whatsoever.
cheers,
