BHP launches further subordinated note repurchase plan

BHP announced today that, following the successful tender offers consummated in September 2020 in respect of certain US dollar and euro subordinated notes issued in 2015, the Board has approved a further global multi-currency subordinated repurchase plan, targeting any and all US dollar and euro subordinated notes remaining in such series of subordinated notes issued in 2015. The multi-currency plan aims to further reduce the group's gross debt balance, reduce associated interest costs and enhance the group's capital structure by allocating surplus cash towards payment of the Notes pursuant to the Offers.

In addition, to further the aims described above and as detailed below and in the Tender Offer Memorandum, it is the current intention of each Company, following the Offers, to redeem the remaining Notes of each Series at their outstanding principal amount plus any accrued but unpaid interest, in accordance with the Series' terms and conditions, if a "Substantial Repurchase Event" is triggered in respect of such Series by the purchase of any Notes pursuant to the relevant Offer(s). Such "Substantial Repurchase Event" shall occur when at least 80 per cent. of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes of such Series issued on the "Issue Date" for such Series has been purchased by or on behalf of the relevant Company and certain related parties of the relevant issuing Company. In this context, the Offers therefore provide Holders with an opportunity to sell their Notes at a level substantially above the par consideration that would be received by Holders in the event that a "Substantial Repurchase Event" were to be triggered and the relevant Company were to redeem the Notes of the relevant Series.

No assurance can be given that the 80 per cent. threshold described above will or will not be met in respect of any Series of Notes; however, the Companies note that, following the successful tender offers consummated by the Companies in September 2020, the "Substantial Repurchase Event" shall be triggered in respect of the US Dollar Notes with the purchase of a further US$295,768,000 in aggregate principal amount of the US Dollar Notes (which is equivalent to 39.7 per cent. of the outstanding principal amount of such US Dollar Notes) and in respect of the Euro Notes with the purchase of a further EUR564,733,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Euro Notes (which is equivalent to 79.0 per cent of the outstanding principal amount of such Euro Notes) (in each case, considering the principal amount of Notes outstanding on the Launch Date).

(1) For illustrative purposes only, a hypothetical Consideration for each Series is set out in the table above, based upon a hypothetical Pricing Time as at 10.00 a.m. (New York City time) on 12 November 2020, where the hypothetical US Dollar Notes Reference Yield was 0.409 per cent. and the hypothetical Interpolated Euro Mid-Swap Rate was -0.471 per cent., and assuming a Settlement Date of 27 November 2020. Holders should note that the actual Consideration for each Series determined in the manner described in the Tender Offer Memorandum could differ significantly from the hypothetical Consideration for each Series set out in the table above .

(2) The purchase price payable for each Series of Notes in the hypothetical event that a "Substantial Repurchase Event" (as described herein) is triggered in respect of a Series and the relevant Company exercises its right to redeem the Notes in such Series would be US$1,000 per US$1,000 in respect of the US Dollar Notes and EUR1,000 per EUR1,000 in respect of the Euro Notes.

The Offers will commence on 13 November 2020 (the "Launch Date") and will expire, unless terminated earlier, at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on 23 November 2020 or at such other date or time to which either Offer may be extended, reopened, amended and/or terminated by the relevant Company as provided in the Tender Offer Memorandum (such applicable date and time, the "Expiration Deadline").

Notes tendered may be withdrawn at any time prior to or at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on 23 November 2020, as may be extended or otherwise amended in respect of any Offer by the relevant Company in accordance with the Tender Offer Memorandum (such applicable date and time, the "Withdrawal Deadline") but not thereafter.

The relevant deadlines set by any intermediary or Clearing System will be earlier than these deadlines. Tender Instructions (or, if applicable, Notices of Guaranteed Delivery) must be submitted in respect of a minimum principal amount of Notes of the relevant Series of no less than the Minimum Denomination for such Series, and may be submitted in integral multiples of US$1,000 or EUR1,000, as applicable. There is no separate letter of transmittal in connection with this Tender Offer Memorandum.

The Offers are subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, as set forth in the Tender Offer Memorandum.

The Companies have an option to redeem remaining Notes of a Series at par plus any accrued but unpaid interest following the purchase of at least 80 per cent. of the aggregate principal amount of Notes of such Series issued on the "Issue Date" for such Series

The terms and conditions of each Series allow the relevant Company (subject to applicable laws) to redeem the Notes in that Series early (in whole but not in part), at their outstanding principal amount plus any accrued but unpaid interest, if a "Substantial Repurchase Event" occurs, meaning at least 80 per cent. of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes of such Series issued on the "Issue Date" for such Series has been purchased by or on behalf of the relevant Company and certain related parties of the relevant issuing Company. Such redemption will be subject to giving not less than 30 days' irrevocable notice.

It is the current intention of each Company to redeem the remaining Notes of each Series at their outstanding principal amount plus any accrued but unpaid interest, in accordance with the Series' terms and conditions, if a "Substantial Repurchase Event" is triggered in respect of such Series by the purchase of any Notes pursuant to the relevant Offer(s). However, no Company is under any obligation to make any such redemption and each Company's intention to do so may change at any time and for any reason.

Further, each Company may, if the "Substantial Repurchase Event" is not triggered by the purchase of Notes pursuant to the Offer made by that Company, acquire outstanding Notes of the relevant Series by way of open market purchases or otherwise and may, as a consequence, trigger a "Substantial Repurchase Event". However, no Company is under any obligation to make any such acquisition. Any future purchases by either Company or its affiliates will depend on various factors existing at that time.

Consideration

The amount in cash to be paid by the relevant Company for each US$1,000 or EUR1,000 (as applicable) in principal amount of each Series validly tendered pursuant to the relevant Offer prior to or at the Expiration Deadline and accepted for purchase by the relevant Company shall be an amount (rounded to the nearest cent, with US$0.005 and EUR0.005 (as applicable) being rounded upwards) that would reflect, as of the Settlement Date, a yield to the First Reset Date of such Series equal to the sum of: (i) the Reference Yield for such Series, plus (ii) the Fixed Spread for such Series set out in the above table (in respect of each Series, the "Consideration"). The Reference Yield will be determined at the Pricing Time on the Pricing Date with reference to, as applicable, the Reference Security or Reference Interpolated Rate, as shown in the above table.

Specifically, the Consideration for each Series will equal (i) the value of all remaining payments of principal and interest on the relevant Series up to and including the applicable First Reset Date (assuming all outstanding Notes of the relevant Series are redeemed at their principal amount on the applicable First Reset Date) discounted to the Settlement Date at a discount rate equal to the sum of (x) the applicable Reference Yield plus (y) the applicable Fixed Spread, minus (ii) Accrued Interest.

The Companies shall also pay Accrued Interest (rounded to the nearest cent, with half a cent rounded upwards) on all Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the relevant Offer(s).

Guaranteed Delivery Procedures

A Holder who desires to tender its Notes but either cannot comply with the applicable procedures for book-entry transfer or time will not permit such Notes to be tendered on or before the Expiration Deadline, may effect a Tender pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures set out in the Tender Offer Memorandum.

The delivery of Notes tendered by the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures must be made no later than 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the second Business Day after the Expiration Deadline, expected to be 25 November 2020 (such applicable date and time, the "Guaranteed Delivery Deadline").

Summary Timetable

The following table sets out the expected dates and times of the key events relating to each Offer. All references to dates and times are to New York City dates and times unless indicated otherwise. The times and dates below are indicative only and subject to change at the discretion of the relevant Company. In particular, the below times and dates are subject to the right of each Company to extend, re-open, amend, and/or terminate the Offer made by that Company (subject to applicable law and as provided in the Tender Offer Memorandum).

Holders are advised to check with any bank, securities broker or other intermediary through which they hold Notes when such intermediary would need to receive instructions from a Holder in order for that Holder to be able to participate in, or withdraw their instruction to participate in, the Offers by the deadlines specified in the Tender Offer Memorandum. The deadlines set by any such intermediary and each Clearing System for the submission and withdrawal of a Tender (including, where applicable, by way of the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures) will be earlier than the relevant deadlines specified in the Tender Offer Memorandum.
