Not wholly true:

>> Bottom line remains, comapnies can only pay dividends if they make money <<


A C-Corp. may pay dividends out of both "Retained Earnings", and Current NOP/NOL (Net operating Profit or Loss)

Above is a non-issue, at least from the perspective of "desire to do so"....by management.
