I thought all companies paid dividends.
They do not.

Dividends are voluntary distributions from retained earnings, declared by the Board of Directors. Normally when a company starts paying dividends, they mold themselves to a fixed schedule (because that's what investors now expect of the stock), but even then they could choose to stop paying dividends - aside from any that had already been declared.
