year-end dividend

Year-end dividend

A special dividend declared at the end of a fiscal year that usually represents distribution of higher-than-expected company profits.

Year-End Dividend

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.
