loganair: Biggest “green metal” producers: Besides Codelco, the largest producers of copper are Freeport, BHP and Glencore. BHP and Glencore have an advantage over the Chilean and American miners as they’re well diversified. Copper is only part of BHP’s portfolio, alongside iron ore, nickel and coal. Glencore also produces copper and coal, but its mines also draw zinc, lead, cobalt, nickel, gold and silver. According to Rystad Energy, global nickel demand is expected to outstrip supply by 2024 as it is a key component in both steel production and batteries for electric vehicles. Battery demand also accounts for around two-thirds of global demand for cobalt. In some respects then, Glencore and BHP are some of the best ways to invest in the green energy boom. Not only do they provide exposure to the metal itself but also other key components of the battery supply chain. Still, there are some drawbacks to investing in these businesses. As well as producing commodities, Glencore trades commodities around the world through its marketing arm. This business can be highly profitable and it’s also pretty difficult to get into, which gives the group a competitive advantage. No other company in the world has as much insight into global commodity markets as the trading giant. This year the trading house has been capitalising on what it is calling “pricing differentials” in disrupted energy markets. As a result of these “differentials” the company expects half-year adjusted earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) of $3.2bn for its marketing and trading arm this year. That’s at the top end of management’s long-term EBIT guidance band. However, Glencore does not provide granular information on how this side of the business operates. In fact, it’s a bit of a black box. Trading commodities requires access to huge amounts of short-term capital to fund purchases. This money is paid back when the commodity is delivered to a client, and to make sure it doesn’t lose out on the deal, Glencore also relies on derivative contracts to guarantee a fixed price on delivery. On a day-to-day basis the corporation may have tens of billions of dollars of short-term loans outstanding with billions more in derivative contracts. So in some regards Glencore is an investment bank as well as a mining group. BHP does not have the same financial exposure. Unlike Glencore its primary business model is and has always been producing commodities. Over the past five years, BHP has undergone a significant transformation. It has cut costs and dramatically improved efficiency, putting it in the perfect place to capitalise on the current commodity price boom. Last year the group generated operating cash flow of $11.5bn and free cash flow of $8.5bn. BHP is a lot easier to understand than Glencore primarily because it does not have a trading business. Strong cash flows have allowed the group to reduce net debt to $6.1bn (from $11.8bn in 2020) and distribute record amounts of cash to investors. Over the 18 months to the end of December, BHP returned $22bn (£18.3bn) to shareholders. To put that into perspective, there are only 26 companies in the FTSE 100 with a market capitalisation greater than £18.3bn.
waldron: PROACTIVE Jordan Brodie Farooqui 08:19 Wed 01 Jun 2022 BHP confirms oil and gas exit as Woodside deal completes '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' BHP BHP Group Limited (LSE:BHP) said the all-stock merger of its oil and gas portfolio with Woodside Energy Group was completed on Wednesday. BHP received 914.8mln Woodside shares for the sale of BHP Petroleum, while the former paid the in specie dividend and distributed the latter’s shares to eligible BHP shareholders. As part of completion, BHP made a net cash payment of roughly US$700mln to Woodside, as well as leaving around US$300mln of cash in the BHP Petroleum bank accounts to fund ongoing operations. This, however, was still subject to a customary post-completion review that may result in an adjustment to the amount paid. Woodside’s closing price on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) on Tuesday was A$29.76, meaning the in specie dividend was approximately A$5.38, with A$2.30 of franking credits per BHP share. “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,” Mike Henry, BHP chief executive, said.
waldron: Release Time IMMEDIATE Date 1 June 2022 Release Number 19/22 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. Authorised for lodgement by: Stefanie Wilkinson Group Company Secretary
saltraider: Thungela Resources experience provides a close comparator. Thungela share price has rocketed following the spin-out from AAL, while AAL share price has remained strong. Could be a great favour to BHP shareholders if divesting BHP petroleum activities unlocks their underlying value in a similar way.
anhar: Gary, the figures in the announcement give a share price for Woodside of US$25.55 at 6th April. The distribution ratio shown is 1 for every 5.534 BHP. Therefore at this valuation, as the announcement states, for 1 BHP it's worth 25.55/5.534 = US$4.62 provisionally. That's their own figure. As you say I have then given a rough UK value of around £3.50 per BHP share. I don't see any other way to work out the provisional £ value, using the details supplied in the statement. They do all the figures in USD, not AUD, and I have assumed they are accurate as they stood at the stated date. But even if I use your ASX price of AUD32.40, with an exchange rate of £1=AUD1.70 this is about £19.06. Apply the given ratio of 5.534 and this makes £3.44 per BHP share which is a similar figure to my original.
garycook: 1 NEWS RELEASE Release Time IMMEDIATE Date 8 April 2022 Release Number 11/22 Update on BHP Petroleum and Woodside merger and share distribution information BHP Group (BHP) and Woodside Petroleum Ltd (Woodside) entered into a share sale agreement (SSA) for the merger of BHP’s oil and gas portfolio with Woodside by an all-stock merger (Merger) on 22 November 2021. On completion of the Merger, the combined company is expected to have a high margin oil portfolio, long life LNG assets and the financial resilience to help supply the energy needed for global growth and development over the energy transition. Woodside has today published an explanatory memorandum and notice of meeting for the Woodside shareholder vote scheduled for 19 May 2022. Woodside has also released the Independent Expert’s Report prepared for Woodside shareholders, which has concluded that the Merger is in the best interests of Woodside shareholders, in the absence of a superior proposal. This announcement contains information relevant for BHP shareholders in respect of the Merger and the proposed in specie dividend of Woodside ordinary shares (Woodside Shares) to BHP shareholders. Highlights · Completion of the Merger is on track and is targeted for 1 June 2022, subject to satisfaction of conditions precedent including approval by Woodside shareholders. · BHP is expected to receive 914.8 million newly issued Woodside Shares at completion and determine a fully franked in specie dividend of the Woodside Shares to BHP shareholders. · BHP shareholders are expected to be entitled to one Woodside Share for every 5.5340 BHP shares they hold on the Record Date. · Based on Woodside’s share price of US$25.55 at 6 April 2022, the implied value of BHP Petroleum is US$23.4 billion. At this valuation, which is subject to change, the in specie dividend would be US$4.62 with US$1.98 of franking credits being distributed per BHP share (US$10.0 billion of franking credits in total). · Woodside will retain its primary listing on the ASX and is seeking a standard listing on the LSE and a sponsored Level III ADR program on the NYSE from completion of the Merger. · A share sale facility will be in place for eligible small BHP shareholders who elect to participate, and for shareholders who are ineligible to receive Woodside Shares
florenceorbis: UPDATE: BHP ups payout as interim profit jumps despite cost pressure Tue, 15th Feb 2022 05:57 Alliance News (Alliance News) -Â BHP Group Ltd on Tuesday reported a "strong" set of interim results, leading to the miner declaring a bumper payout . Revenue from continuing operations for the six months to December 31 rose 27% to USD30.53 billion from USD24.04 billion a year earlier. Pretax profit increased 61% to USD14.49 billion from USD9.01 billion. This figures do not include BHP's petroleum assets, as those are soon to be transferred to Woodside Petroleum Ltd, in a deal announced in November 2021 and set to close in the June 2022 quarter. Behind the increase in profit was higher sales prices across major commodities, near record production at Western Australia Iron Ore and higher concentrate sales at Spence. This was offset somewhat by inflationary pressures, including higher fuel and energy prices. Released last month, BHP said copper production in the period 12% year-on-year to 742,000 tonnes while the metal's average realised price rose 30% to USD4.31 per pound. Iron ore production rose 0.8% to 129.4 million tonnes. "BHP had a strong first half. We achieved our third consecutive fatality free calendar year. We mitigated the impacts of Covid-19 and significant adverse weather events to turn in a solid operational performance, particularly from our flagship Western Australian Iron Ore business," said Chief Executive Mike Henry. The robust half led to the firm declaring a record interim dividend of USD1.50, up from USD1.01 a year before and beating forecasts of USD1.24. The payout was supported by a "reliable operating performance" and "continued strong markets". "BHP is well positioned for the future. We are building on our strong foundations and capital discipline to reshape our business and grow long-term value for shareholders and other stakeholders," said Henry. Looking ahead, BHP said it remains positive on commodity demand though did flag cost pressures. The firm cited labour costs and other industry-wide inflationary pressures, and said cost headwinds due to supply bottlenecks are set to remain challenging throughout the remainder of the current financial year. These pressures should see "only tentative signs of easing" by the end of the period. "As the actual recognition of costs tends to lag developments in prompt pricing, these pressures are expected to continue to impact on our cost base in the following calendar year. Demand-led inflation in the broader economy, reflecting a healthy tension between rising demand and the ability to meet it, is expected to endure for some time. That is fundamentally positive for the resources industry," BHP said. By Lucy Heming;Â

sarkasm: UPDATE: BHP unification clears regulatory hurdles before investor vote Tue, 21st Dec 2021 08:50 Alliance News (Alliance News) - BHP Group PLC on Tuesday said it has received regulatory and competition approvals for a planned unification under its Australian parent company. The watchdog approvals include backing from the National Treasury of South Africa, the miner said. Shareholder meetings to consider the unification will be held on January 20. The unification is expected to be completed on January 31. Back in August, BHP announced plans to unify its corporate structure under its Australian parent company. The changes move its primary listing to Sydney's Australian Securities Exchange . The move will see one of the largest components in the FTSE 100 leave the index, as London will no longer be its primary listing. BHP also will keep a secondary listing in Johannesburg and have American Depositary Shares traded in New York. The unification plan followed an agreement by BHP to merge its oil and gas portfolio with Sydney-listed Woodside Petroleum Ltd. The oil and gas unit's tie-up with Perth, Australia-based Woodside will create one of the 10 largest independent energy producers in the world. Terms for the merger, which will see Woodside absorb BHP's oil and gas assets, were agreed in November. The all-stock deal will see Woodside shareholders have 52% of the new company and BHP shareholders 48%. BHP valued its petroleum business at USD15.4 billion as of June 30, the company said in August when it announced the Woodside deal. Woodside currently has a market capitalisation of AUD20.86 billion, around USD14.85 billion. It means the deal is worth roughly USD30 billion. BHP shares closed up 1.5% at AUD41.71 each in Sydney on Tuesday. In Johannesburg, the stock was up 2.7% at ZAR460.09 on Tuesday morning. In early dealings in London, shares were up 2.5% at 2,199.50 pence. By Eric Cunha;
waldron: BHP (ASX:BHP) share price slips as ACCC gives all-clear for Woodside deal One step closer to BHP and Woodside joining forces… Mitchell Lawler❯ @mitchell_lawler Published December 16, 11:11am AEDT The BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP) share price is losing its grip this morning, slipping to the downside. Today’s move follows the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) announcing its verdict on Woodside Petroleum Limited‘s (ASX: WPL) proposed acquisition of BHP’s petroleum business. In morning trade, the diversified mining giant’s shares are fetching $40.66, down 1%. The regulatory green light comes 23 days after the mega-merger was first announced. Why did the ACCC give Woodside the green light? Shareholders from both Woodside and BHP are one step closer to an amalgamated future today. Yet, looking at the BHP share price today, you wouldn’t think investors are too excited about it. A media release from the ACCC states the corporate watchdog will not oppose Woodside’s proposed acquisition of BHP Petroleum and its oil and gas assets. According to the release, the regulator carefully considered the potential impacts of the deal. Specifically, the supply of domestic natural gas in Western Australia. This is because the WA market is the only area where the two energy giants overlap. Whereas, all other customers are either offshore or in areas where the two do not coincide. ACCC chair Rod Sims commented: We found that post-acquisition, Woodside would continue to face competition from a range of suppliers of domestic gas, including major producers Chevron and Santos, and from several other smaller suppliers including Shell and ExxonMobil. Woodside’s share of domestic gas after the acquisition will be approximately 20 percent. Due to the likely presence of reasonable competition, the Australian regulator has opted to allow the deal to proceed. Despite this development, the BHP share price is weakening as investors digest the news. As the merger takes another step forward to solidifying, the ASX could soon count Woodside as a top 10 global independent energy company. How has the BHP share price been tracking? Investors in BHP have been riding a wave of increased volatility in the BHP share price since August. A cratering iron ore price has dragged the Australian mining company away from its 52-week high by approximately 25%. However, shares in BHP have been rebounding in recent weeks. At present, the BHP share price is trading at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 13.2 times. For comparison, the Australian metals and mining industry average P/E ratio is around 15.2 times.
