The question was:
Which one of the following is not a characteristics of Ordinary Shares?
This question relates to ‘A: Financing Capital Projects’ and is a slightly different version of the question in one of our free mock exams.
The correct answer was Wow, with…
First inline for dividend payments
Ordinary shares do not have a maturity date and they provide a claim to the income and assets of the company.
While the percentage of the company held by the shareholder can decrease if new shares are issued, the shareholding itself cannot be diluted.
First inline for dividends is a characteristic of preference dividends.
