Notification and public disclosure of transactions by

Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities

 

 -

This notification relates to changes in John Mogford’s indirect interest in ordinary shares in BHP Group Plc held by his financial adviser Cazenove Capital as a result of participation in BHP’s dividend reinvestment plan (DRP).

 

 -

Cazenove Capital participated in the DRP as a result of a standing brokerage instruction on Mr Mogford’s Cazenove Capital shareholding account to take dividends as stock. This instruction was put in place prior to his joining the BHP Board and before he acquired any interest in BHP Group Plc shares. This instruction was inadvertently applied to the BHP Group Plc shares in the shareholding account.

 

 -

This release provides the details of the additional shares acquired in BHP Group Plc under that pre-existing instruction.

 

 -

The DRP acquisitions occurred outside of the closed periods under BHP’s Securities Dealing policy and were not previously notified due to an oversight, which is being corrected now that it has been identified by Mr Mogford and BHP. BHP has reviewed and updated its procedures to guard against this happening again.
