(a) Notice— The operator shall give written notice of a dividend declaration to the Maritime Administrator immediately upon such declaration.

If such approval is then granted, the operator may follow the requirements of this part 283 once again. The reports required by this section shall be prepared in accordance with the definitions set forth in § 283.2.
