Preferred stock issued by a private company generally does not carry a dividend but is often convertible to common equity if the firm is successful.  Alternately, if the firm does not do well, the preferred stock has a higher claim on the assets of the firm.  Preferred stock issued by a mature company generally carries a preferred dividend, seniority in liquidation, and special voting rights.
