KD101 Copy of my account doesn't help you revover your money back - It helps you see what is going on. On the other hand, by restricting dividends to common shareholders, I may be left with more money
shawn what are you talking about?
G3cc0 if divs are limited to ni, the case may arise when bondholders don't get paid. that's a negative covenant.
sheenalim Requirement to furnish bondholders with a copy of the firm's annual accounts.

why is this a positive covenant?
copus it is a positive covenant in that involves the positive act of presenting the companies financials. The question does not stipulate if the company is public (which would make this publication obligatory). Assuming that the company is a private company, this would most certainly be a positve covenant.
