A question on group structures and dividends.
I was wondering when a business group (for example purposes..lets say Manchester United and its parent in the caymans) has a trading entity at the bottom of the corporate tree earning the actual profits and has a holding company or several above it that do not generate any cash, but is the vehicle for the utimate public shareholders, when dividends are declared by the public holdings company, how does the cash find its way from the bottom trading entity to the top holding entity?
long winded i know, but thanks in advance for the answers.
