A final dividend declared toward the end a given fiscal year. A company announces a year-end dividend especially if revised estimates show a greater than expected profit; it waits until the end of the year to revise and attempt to verify these estimates before declaring the dividend. More broadly, it may refer to the last dividend declared in a year.
