-- the scheme consideration paid by BHP of A$26.50 for each OZL share held at the scheme record date, which is 7:00pm on 24 April 2023; and

-- a fully franked special dividend paid by OZL of A$1.75 for each OZL share held on the special dividend record date, which is 7:00pm on 21 April 2023.

The cash payment by BHP will be funded using a combination of BHP's existing cash reserves and the proceeds of a debt facility.

BHP Group Seeks to Delay $44B Brazil Dam Court Case in London
March 30, 2023

Mining group BHP Group is seeking to delay a potential 36 billion pound ($44 billion) London lawsuit over Brazil’s worst environmental disaster as it needs more time to prepare, the company’s lawyers said on Wednesday.

The world’s biggest miner by market value is being sued by around 720,000 Brazilians over the 2015 collapse of the Fundao dam, owned by the Samarco joint venture it holds with Brazilian iron ore mining company Vale.

BHP’s lawyers said the 2024 trial should be delayed to allow Vale to participate and to give BHP more time to go through an “enormous̶1; number of potentially relevant documents.

Miner BHP Potentially Faces $44B Lawsuit in London Over Brazil Dam Collapse

BHP’s lawyer Alexander Hutton argued in court filings that the trial should be adjourned until at least June 2025, saying that pushing ahead with a 2024 trial would be “extremely unfair” to BHP.

A 14-month delay to the scheduled April 2024 start would take the trial well into 2025, a decade after the dam disaster that killed 19 people when mud and toxic mining waste swept into the Doce river, obliterating villages, contaminating water supplies and reaching the Atlantic Ocean more than 650 km (400 miles) away.

BHP denies liability and in December applied to join Vale to the case. Vale has challenged the London High Court’s jurisdiction to determine the claim, which will be heard in July.

Simon Salzedo, representing Vale, argued that BHP has no case against Vale and that, if it did, any lawsuit should be brought in Brazil.

BHP said in a statement: “The UK case is unnecessary as it duplicates issues already covered by the ongoing work of the Renova Foundation and/or the subject of ongoing legal proceedings in Brazil.”

Reparation and compensation programs implemented by the Renova Foundation funded $6 billion in financial aid by the end of 2022, BHP added.

“When the lengths of the different phases are added up, it is apparent that BHP envisage a trial process that will extend closer to 2030 than to 2025, particularly if there should be appeals,” Tom Goodhead of law firm Pogust Goodhead, which represents the claimants, said in a witness statement submitted to the court.

The lawsuit, one of the largest in English legal history, first began in 2018 and was thrown out of court two years later, before the Court of Appeal ruled in July that it could proceed.

BHP has applied to the Supreme Court to end the case without trial following the Court of Appeal’s decision last year.

Lawyers representing the claimants said earlier this month that the number of claimants had increased by around 500,000, pushing the potential bill to $44 billion, including interest, if they are successful in the case.

OZ Minerals close to accepting BHP’s revised takeover offer of $6.4bn

By NS Energy Staff Writer  18 Nov 2022

According to BHP, the proposed transaction will enable the creation of a copper basin in South Australia which could tap potential operational synergies driven by the proximity that OZ Minerals’ Carrapateena and Prominent Hill operations have with its own existing Olympic Dam asset and Oak Dam development resource

OZ Minerals (OZL) said that its board intends to recommend a revised takeover proposal of A$28.25 ($18.95) per share in cash from BHP, which translates to an enterprise value of A$9.6bn ($6.44bn).

The Australian mining company said that the proposed consideration is the best and final that BHP is willing to offer.

OZ Minerals’ board has confirmed to BHP that it plans to recommend the revised proposal unanimously to the company’s shareholders as being in their best interests, in the absence of a superior proposal.

The recommendation is also subject to the two mining firms executing a binding scheme implementation agreement (SIA) after BHP completes a confirmatory due diligence and an independent expert finds the revised proposal to be in the best interests of OZ Minerals’ shareholders.

In August 2022, OZ Minerals rejected BHP’s takeover bid of A$25 ($16.8) per share in cash or A$8.34bn ($5.6bn) from BHP Group, citing that the proposed deal considerably undervalues its business.

OZ Minerals managing director and CEO Andrew Cole said: “BHP’s Revised Proposal is a clear reflection of OZ Minerals’ unique set of highly strategic, quality assets in quality jurisdictions and an enviable multigenerational growth pipeline of copper and nickel assets in strong demand due to global electrification.

“We look forward to working with BHP in a collaborative way to progress the Revised Proposal in the best interests of OZ Minerals’ and its stakeholders.”

OZ Minerals is engaged in developing a portfolio of long life, low-cost copper-focused assets. It has two operating assets, which are the Prominent Hill copper mine and the Carrapateena copper mine, both located in Australia.

The company and BHP have entered into a confidentiality and exclusivity deed with respect to the latter’s revised proposal.

According to BHP, the proposed deal will enable the creation of a copper basin in South Australia which could tap potential operational synergies driven by the proximity of the Carrapateena and Prominent Hill operations with its own existing Olympic Dam asset and Oak Dam development resource.

BHP CEO Mike Henry said: “BHP’s proposal represents a highly compelling offer for OZL shareholders, providing certainty at a time of macroeconomic uncertainty and market volatility, and increasing risks for the industry.

“The combination of BHP and OZL’s assets, skills and technical expertise provides a unique opportunity not available under separate ownership, with complementary resources including the Oak Dam exploration prospect and existing facilities within close proximity, backed by BHP’s strong balance sheet, capital discipline and commitment to sustainable development.”

TOP NEWS: BHP says Oz board backs raised offer of AUD28.25 per share

Fri, 18th Nov 2022 07:32
Alliance News

(Alliance News) - BHP Group Ltd said on Friday the board of Oz Minerals Ltd intends to recommend an improved takeover offer that values Oz at AUD9.6 billion.

Oz is a gold, copper and nickel miner. It owns and operates the Prominent Hill and Carrapateena mines in South Australia. It also has an interest in the Pedra Branca copper-gold mine in Brazil.

BHP, a Melbourne-based diversified miner, said it increased its non-binding indicative offer to AUD28.25 per Oz share in cash, representing a premium of 49% to Oz's closing price of AUD18.92 per share on August 5, when BHP tabled it initial offer.

Back in August, BHP offered AUD25.00 per share in cash for Sydney-listed Oz, but the Oz board rejected it at the time.

On Friday, Oz confirmed that its board intends to unanimously recommend BHP's revised offer to its shareholders. It said the takeover approach was in the best interest of its shareholders in the absence of a superior proposal.

The two companies said on Friday they had entered into a confidentiality and exclusivity deed in relation to the revised proposal. Under this accord, Oz has granted BHP four weeks to undertake exclusive confirmatory due diligence and negotiate a binding agreement.

The four-week period is expected to commence on or around Monday next week.

BHP said its latest Oz offer represented its the "best and final" price it is willing to pay.


in BHP closed up 0.3% at AUD43.94 in Sydney on Friday, giving it a market capitalisation of AUD222.59 billion, about USD149.21 billion.

Oz was up 4.0% to AUD27.34 in Australia, giving it a market capitalisation of AUD9.15 billion.

BHP said Oz might pay a franked dividend to Oz shareholders before the deal is implemented.

The revised proposal is subject to conditions including completion of due diligence, and shareholder and regulatory approvals.

"The cash consideration price under the revised proposal will be reduced by the cash component of any dividends or return of capital paid by OZL before the date of the implementation of the revised proposal," BHP said.

BHP Chair Ken MacKenzie said: "BHP's proposal would provide value to BHP shareholders by increasing exposure to future facing commodities, attractive synergies and adding to our pipeline of growth options."

Added BHP Chief Executive Mike Henry: "BHP's proposal represents a highly compelling offer for OZL shareholders, providing certainty at a time of macroeconomic uncertainty and market volatility, and increasing risks for the industry."

Here’s the BHP dividend forecast for 2022 to 2024

This mining giant has paid out some huge dividends recently. Here, Edward Sheldon looks at the BHP

Group dividend forecast for the years ahead.

Edward Sheldon, CFA❯

Published 15 October, 8:47 am BST

Mining powerhouse BHP Group (LSE: BHP) has been a bit of a cash cow for investors in recent years.

Last financial year, for example, it rewarded shareholders with total regular dividends of USD $3.25 per share, which translates to a yield of about 13% at the current share price.

Is the company set to continue paying out monster dividends going forward? Let’s take a look at the BHP dividend forecast for the years ahead.

BHP dividend forecasts

First, there are a couple of things to explain.

The first is that BHP’s financial year ends on 30 June. So, the year ending 30 June 2023 is ‘FY2023’. The following year is ‘FY2024’.

The second is that BHP reports its financials, and declares its dividends, in US dollars. So, all forecasts are in dollars. This is important to note because the GBP/USD exchange rate is quite volatile at the moment. In other words, the yield on offer today could be quite different to the yield when the dividends are actually paid if exchange rates fluctuate.

As for the forecasts, right now City analysts expect BHP to pay out $2.09 per share for FY2023 and $1.86 per share for FY2024.

These projected payouts are lower than the $3.25 paid last financial year. However, they still translate to very high yields.

At today’s share price and exchange rate, the projected payout for FY2023 equates to a prospective yield of 8.3% while the estimated payout for FY2024 translates to a prospective yield of 7.4%.

Assuming that these dividend forecasts are accurate (analysts’ estimates can be way off the mark at times), BHP looks set to continue being a cash cow for investors.

Are BHP shares worth buying for income?

Would I buy BHP shares for the big dividends on offer?

The answer to that question is actually no.

One reason I’d pass on BHP is that the stock is ‘cyclical̵7; (mining companies’ profits rise and fall depending on commodity prices) and, therefore, quite volatile. For example, between mid-2014 and early 2016, BHP’s share price fell from near 1,600p to near 500p.

I don’t see the point of collecting a 8% yield if the share price can potentially fall around 70% like it did here. I’d need many years of dividends to make up for that kind of capital loss.

I prefer dividend stocks that are a little more stable in nature.

Another issue for me is the fact that BHP tends to cut its dividend when business conditions are challenging.

This is not ideal from an income-investing perspective.

I prefer to invest in companies that consistently increase their dividend payouts year after year.

I can rely on these kinds of businesses to provide me with a certain level of income.

So, while the yield here does look very attractive, I won’t be buying the shares for my portfolio any time soon.

25 July 2022 - Potash potential:

BHP is working on a major potash project. Potash is seen as a greener form of fertiliser. It said that it’s “low emission, biosphere friendly and positively leveraged to decarbonisation̶1;.

The resource business describes potash as a “future facing commodity with attractive long-term fundamentals and differentiated demand drivers” compared to other commodities.

BHP said there is reliable base demand, leveraged by population growth and higher living standards. The project provides a platform for growth through potential capital efficient expansions. Stage 2 studies for Jansen are being accelerated to provide maximum optionality.

The business is expecting Jansen to be low cost and to be able to generate a high profit margin for BHP.

Jansen is a reason to be positive on the BHP share price over the long term.

Merger completion and in specie distribution

BHP Group (BHP) is pleased to announce that the merger of BHP's oil and gas portfolio with Woodside Energy Group Limited (Woodside) by an all-stock merger (Merger) has completed today.

BHP received 914,768,948 Woodside shares as consideration for the sale of BHP Petroleum. BHP has paid the in specie dividend and distributed Woodside shares today in line with the details described in BHP's announcement on 20 May 2022. As a result, BHP has now distributed Woodside shares to eligible BHP shareholders. BHP dividend statements and Woodside holding statements are expected to be despatched to eligible BHP shareholders in mid-June 2022.

The closing price of Woodside shares on ASX on 31 May 2022 was A$29.76 [1] . The implied value of the in specie dividend was therefore A$27.2 billion (US$19.6 billion). At this valuation, the in specie dividend is approximately A$5.38 (US$3.86), with A$2.30 (US$1.66) of franking credits being distributed, per BHP share.

As part of completion, BHP has made a net cash payment of approximately US$0.7 billion to Woodside. In addition, approximately US$0.3 billion in cash will be left in the BHP Petroleum bank accounts to fund the ongoing operations. This reflects the net cash flows generated by BHP Petroleum, less cash dividends paid by Woodside to BHP, between the Merger effective date of 1 July 2021 and completion. This net payment to Woodside will be subject to a customary post-completion review which may result in an adjustment to the amount paid.

BHP Chief Executive Officer, Mike Henry said: "The merger of our petroleum assets with Woodside creates a global energy company with the scale and opportunity to help supply the energy needed for global growth and development in a rapidly decarbonising world. Our shareholders will now have exposure to assets in two organisations, BHP and Woodside, each with a very clear focus, strategy and value proposition. BHP's world class portfolio is weighted towards commodities which support economic growth and have decarbonisation upside and combined with our operational excellence will underpin attractive returns and long-term value growth."

Trading of Woodside shares and depositary interests

Normal trading of the new Woodside shares that are received as part of the in specie dividend will commence as follows :

2 June 2022 New Woodside shares on ASX
Woodside American depository shares on NYSE
6 June 2022 Woodside depository interests on LSE

Sale facility

For ineligible overseas shareholders and small BHP shareholders that have validly elected to participate in the sale facility, the in specie dividend entitlement has been transferred to the sale agent to be sold. The sale proceeds may take up to 12 weeks to be remitted to BHP shareholders.
