Dividends

Disable ads for free

Dividends represent one part of the company’s profits from the previous period. The company distributes them between its owner-shareholders. Businesses may pay out dividends, but they are not obliged to. The method that is used to calculate the dividend is described in the company's dividend policy or articles of association. The clearer and more transparent the calculation principle, the more investors love the company. Many factors affect whether dividends are paid out. The main ones are the need for financing by major shareholders and tax optimization. So, if the state in the person of a fund or state-supported organization is one of the shareholders, the payment of regular dividends is practically guaranteed. The same is true, but to a lesser extent, in the case of a serious debt burden that is incurred by one of the business owners.
