Thank you for contacting our JA team for guidance.

Net income is the amount of income after taxes and expenses as it relates to a company's financial statement. Dividends may be paid out of net income but it is generally up to the board of directors to establish the amount of dividends to be paid during any given period.

Please let me know if you need clarification.

Best regards to you,
