Dividend

Income from property paid to shareholders that have made capital available to a company. For a company, the issuing of shares represents a way to obtain capital other than through borrowing. Unlike borrowed capital, share capital is not at the origin of a fixed debt in monetary terms, and does not enable holders of shares to receive a fixed or pre-defined income.
