Allocation of Matched Shares

 

When will the Matched Shares be allocated?

6 April 2020.

What shares will be matched?

BHP will match the Acquired Shares that were purchased under Shareplus 2017. You will receive one Matched Share for every Acquired Share you still hold from Shareplus 2017. Shares for the 2017 Plan Year were purchased in September 2017, December 2017, March 2018 and June 2018.

Do I have to apply to have my Matched Shares allocated?

No. Your Matched Shares will be automatically allocated to you.

How many Matched Shares will I receive?

You will receive one Matched Share for every Acquired Share you still hold under Shareplus 2017.

Can I sell my Acquired Shares on 6 April 2020 without affecting my entitlement to Matched Shares?

Yes. The vesting date for the Matched Shares is 6 April 2020, which means that any Shareplus 2016 Acquired Shares you sell on or after 6 April will not affect your Matched Shares allocation.
