On 31 January 2022, BHP completed the reorganisation of its corporate structure to remove the dual-listed company (DLC) structure between BHP Group Plc and BHP Group Limited. BHP Group Limited is now the sole parent company of BHP.

Upon the establishment of the DLC structure in 2001, each of BHP Group Limited and BHP Group Plc executed a Deed Poll Guarantee, pursuant to which creditors entitled to the benefit of the Deed Poll Guarantees were, to the extent possible, to be placed in the same position as if the relevant debts were owed by both BHP Group Limited and BHP Group Plc, combined.

In connection with the 2022 reorganisation, the Deed Poll Guarantees were terminated in accordance with their terms. As a result, no new obligations will arise for BHP Group Limited and BHP Group Plc under the Deed Poll Guarantees going forwards. BHP Group Limited and BHP Group Plc will, however, continue to be liable for any existing obligations incurred, or arising out of any obligation incurred, by them prior to termination of the Deed Poll Guarantees.

Accordingly, creditors that existed prior to termination of the Deed Poll Guarantees (and that are entitled to the benefit of the Deed Poll Guarantees) will, to the extent possible, be placed in the same position as if the relevant debts were owed by both BHP Group Limited and BHP Group Plc, combined.
