Dividend Reinvestment Plan 

BHP Group Limited established a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (involving on-market purchase) in 2018. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan, shareholders are able to elect to use their cash dividend for the purchase of BHP shares. The Dividend Reinvestment Plan has recently been amended following the unification of BHP's dual listed company structure to provide former BHP Group Plc shareholders with an opportunity to  participate in the BHP Group Limited Plan. Former BHP Group Plc shareholders who wish to participate in the BHP Group Limited Plan should note that they will need to make a new election to participate in the Plan.
