BHP invites registered sell-side analysts who monitor BHP’s securities to submit their estimates, in respect of each financial reporting period, to an external web-based tool managed by Vuma Financial Limited (Vuma).
The consensus figure for a particular item represents the arithmetic mean of all figures for that item submitted to Vuma by analysts. No analyst who has updated and entered their estimate into Vuma has been excluded from the aggregate consensus figures. The figures are current as at the date specified on the Vuma website and are not updated after that date.
The consensus figures reflect the opinions of third party analysts who do not have access to BHP’s internal financial information. The consensus figures are not based on BHP’s opinions, estimates or forecasts and are compiled and published without comment from, or endorsement or verification by, BHP. BHP does not endorse, confirm or express a view on the consensus estimates, and BHP does not accept any responsibility whatsoever in relation to the information.
The analysts’ estimates were requested prior to the announcement of the sale of BHP’s Onshore US assets on 27 July 2018, and were therefore compiled on a total operations basis (include the contribution of Onshore US assets).
PLEASE NOTE BHP’S FULL YEAR RESULTS TO BE RELEASED ON 21 AUGUST 2018 WILL BE PRESENTED ON A CONTINUING OPERATIONS BASIS. THE CONTRIBUTION OF THE ONSHORE US ASSETS WILL BE PRESENTED AS DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS AND RELATED ASSETS AND LIABILITIES RECLASSIFIED TO HELD FOR SALE.
By clicking on the ‘accept’ button below, you confirm that you understand the nature of these consensus estimates as outlined above.
