Explanation:
Corporations, particularly privately-held corporations, frequently lend money to their shareholders. Yet another example of the rich getting richer, or at least having privileged access to capital!

I think if the loans were to the shareholders, this would be "prêts." "Emprunts" would indicate the shareholders were making the loans to the company. As it turns out, after wading through the text, I found that the shareholders had actually made loans to the company.
Thanks for your interest.
