    Does anyone get this?

    Johns owns 400 shares of Abco Corp. cumulative preferred stock. In the absence of any specific contrary provisions in Abco's Articles of Incorporation, which of the following statements is correct?

    A) Johns is entitled to convert the 400 shares of preferred stock to a like number of shares of common stock.
    B) If Abco declares a cash dividend on its preferred stock, Johns becomes an unsecured creditor of Abco.
    C) If Abco declares a dividend on its common stock, Johns will be entitled to participate with the common stock shareholders in any dividend distribution made after preferred dividends are paid.
    D) Johns will be entitled to vote if dividend payments are in arrears.

    If Abco declares a cash dividend on its preferred stock, won't Johns get the money that he is entitled to?

    @gryfi,
    Answer is B. Declaring a cash dividend is not the same as paying it. So when it's declared, it becomes a liability on Abco's books payable to John (and other preferred s/h). Since the dividend payment is not secured by anything, John is an unsecured creditor.

    1. Approx exam date (Late October, mid-November, etc) Hopefully last day of testing window December 10
    2. Topic you're most-comfortable within this exam section : Corporate Tax
    3. Topic you're weakest in / worries you the most. Individual tax – Blaw

    #1994837

    1. Taking REG late November.
    2. Most comfortable with individual tax since whether I like it or not, I had to research to the certain extent in order to get more refund on my tax return every year.
    3. Weakest link is business law because of a lot of memorizing.

    I can do this

    Back again. Ugh.
    Really wanting to get my best score this time around. My only fail out of all four. I am weak in parts of all areas, but better in the business law and ethics. This is truly my hardest exam. Let's hope for a win this time! Retaking 11/15.

    1. Approx exam date (Late October, mid-November, etc): Well my studying has been super delayed but I'm hoping to take it in late November now.
    2. Topic you're most-comfortable within this exam section: Corporations/Partnerships and other business entities
    3. Topic you're weakest in / worries you the most: Securities laws. I don't know if Gleim is just too detailed but it seems like a lot to memorize.

    Also, I have a question regarding b-law. In the agency section Gleim mentions the Second Restatement and the Third Restatement and how they conflict in certain areas. Does the Third Restatement not override the Second Restatement? It seems to want me to learn both for some reason. Is it because certain jurisdictions may not have adopted the Third Restatement? I'm confused so if anyone can shed some light I'd appreciate it.

    Studying with Gleim
