Okay, I'm a CPA, but clearly I'm confused. I've never heard of companies paying dividends to creditors. My understanding is that dividends are a distribution of earnings to owners, i.e. stockholders.I think people are using terms a little too loosely; especially since you're a CPA. A bond owner is a creditor. The company owes him the principal and interest on the bonds(debt) he has purchased from the company.Hedge - wondering if he has been pedantically correct ;)
