What is DIVIDENT? DATA G 11 Ltd consists of 5 shareholders
Partner 1: \$ 5000 Partner 2: \$ 5000 Partner 3: \$ 5000 Partner 4: \$ 5000 Partner 5: \$ 5000 DATA G 11 Ltd consists of 5 shareholders 2012 records showed \$ NET PROFITS Total company capital is \$ 1 M Shareholders financed the capital on 20% contract. Distribution of DIVIDENTS (shares) on shareholders:
