Footnote

An explanation of an item in a financial statement or of the financial statement generally. A footnote may expand upon the company's accounting methods, or it may show why a negative item is unlikely to be repeated. Footnotes are usually found at the end of financial statements; they are considered useful because they give more information than the financial statement itself does.
