But ........... there's always ......... This time it's different.

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."

TOP NEWS: BHP warns of economic uncertainty, "repositioned" for future

Thu, 10th Nov 2022 06:52

(Alliance News) - BHP Group Ltd warned on Thursday that the geopolitical landscape continued to change and economic conditions remained uncertain in the short term.

Speaking ahead of the annual general meeting to be held in person on Thursday, BHP Chair Ken MacKenzie said the mining firm was "fundamentally repositioned" for the future, highlighting its foray into potash.

The Australian miner recognises that demand for potash will increase because the world will need more food. Potash is potassium-containing salts used as fertiliser.

BHP has said it was working to bring forward first production at its Jansen potash project in Canada to 2026. In 2021, it approved capital expenditure of USD5.7 billion for its Jansen stage 1 potash project.

"Potash is a new commodity for BHP which has the potential to deliver value for a century or more," MacKenzie will tell shareholders.

MacKenzie also noted the group has recently merged its petroleum business with Woodside Energy Group Ltd; simplified its coal portfolio to focus on higher-quality metallurgical coal used for steelmaking; and unified its corporate structure.

The chair will also tell shareholders that the short-term outlook was complex, with the geopolitical landscape continuing to change and economic conditions remaining uncertain.

There are ongoing labour and skills shortages, while countries are emerging from the impact of the global Covid-19 pandemic at different paces, he said.

Despite the challenging environment, the company delivered strong operational and financial results for the financial year to June 30.

Over this period, BHP posted record earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation of USD40.6 billion, up 16%.

Revenue for the financial year ended June 30 rose 14% to USD65.10 billion from USD56.92 billion. Pretax profit was 36% higher at USD33.14 billion from USD24.29 billion.

BHP's full-year payout totalled 325.0 cents, up 8.0% from 301.0 cents the previous year. It also paid a special dividend

of 386.4 cents as a result of its merger with Woodside.

MacKenzie said the repositioning of the company will align it with the "megatrends" of decarbonisation, population growth and demand for higher standards of living.

The demand for copper, nickel and steel will grow to enable the infrastructure and products required for the energy transition, he said.

Chief Executive Mike Henry, addressing the AGM, will tell shareholders that the company continued its track record of transforming itself to meet the needs of the world.

Ps China restrictions may be lifted in February ie Chinese New year
Traditionally weak months b4 January reporting. Goes up near exd time in February. I hope history repeat itself this time as well.
ACTION - 50% of BHP revenues comes from Iron Ore.

The price of Iron Ore which is down some 47% since its peak this year and down 62% since its May 2021 peak.

As with my previous post to Monty, therefore less need for Iron Ore and with the continuing C restrictions in China there is no foreseeable uptick in the price of Iron Ore.

monty - Steel production is down - circa 200mln Chinese are still under some form of C restriction of which 20mln are under full lock down.
Down 5% plus
Thermal coal production down 38% I suppose might be the same for Glencore, surely that would push up Newcastle thermal coal price.

BHP Iron-Ore, Copper Output Up, Coal Production Down

BHP Group reported higher iron ore, copper and nickel production in the first three months of its fiscal year, but said output of energy and steelmaking coal was weaker.

BHP Group Ltd. on Wednesday reported higher iron ore, copper and nickel production in the first three months of its fiscal year, but said output of energy and steelmaking coal was weaker.

The world's largest miner by market value said it produced 65.1 million metric tons of iron ore, the key ingredient in steel, in the three months through September, up 3% on the year-earlier period. It cited a strong operational performance at its Western Australian mining operations, and reduced pandemic-related disruptions.

BHP said its output of copper was up by 9% over the same period to 410,100 tons, in big part because of a rebound in Olympic Dam production following significant smelter maintenance work a year ago. Its output of nickel was 16% higher at 20,700 tons, which was also a rebound from maintenance work in the year-earlier period.

The company produced 1% less metallurgical coal, used in steelmaking. Quarterly production of that commodity totaled 6.7 million tons, as BHP grappled with significant disruptions from wet weather.

Its thermal-coal production was down 38%, at 2.6 million tons, which the company also attributed to wet weather as well as labor shortages.

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.
