The dividend is the part of net earnings distributed by a company on a yearly basis to its shareholders and which varies according to the financial results of the company.
The amount is proposed by the Board of Directors and approved by the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting, which ratifies the accounts of the previous fiscal year. Generally speaking, companies only distribute dividends if they have generated profits. The dividend can be paid in cash or in stocks. It is a significant component of shareholders’ earnings, in particular for long-term investors. The dividend is in fact the only source of revenue for a shareholder if he or she does not sell the shares.
