German term or phrase: disquotale Gewinnausschuettung
A business letter referring to profit payouts.
Jean Colton
English translation:disproportional or disproportionate distribution of profits
Explanation:
Gewinnausschüttung = distribution of profits or profit (income) distribution. [Zahn, Bank- und Börsenwesen.
The "disquotal" was a bit more troublesome; however, Zahn does list "quotal" in another entry, quotale Haftung = proportional liability. Romain gives proportionate, on a quota basis and rateable for quotal. Something like distribution of profits not on a quota basis might also work for you. HTH!

Thanks very much for your thorough answer. I had actually guessed this as the translation but wanted to find some backup for it. None of my resources had a listing, so thanks for your winning entry!
