However, if you have not lodged this proxy form by 48 hours before the time scheduled for the commencement of the Plc Scheme Meeting, you may deliver it by hand to the Registrar or the Chair of the Plc Scheme Meeting before the start of the Plc Scheme Meeting. Any proxy form (and any relevant authorities under which it is signed) received after that time will not be valid for the scheduled meeting. How to complete this proxy form This proxy form is for use at the Plc Scheme Meeting convened with the permission of the Court. All capitalised but undefined terms used in this proxy form shall have the meaning as set out in the circular of BHP Group Plc relating to the unification of the BHP Group (the “Shareholder Circular”). Every holder has the right to appoint some other person(s) of their choice, who need not be a shareholder, as their proxy to exercise all or any of their rights to attend, speak and vote on their behalf. If you wish to appoint a person other than the Chair of the Plc Scheme Meeting, please insert the name of your chosen proxy holder in the space provided (see reverse). If the proxy is being appointed in relation to less than your full voting entitlement, please enter in the box next to the proxy holder’s name (see reverse) the number of shares in relation to which they are authorised to act as your proxy. If left blank, your proxy will be deemed to be authorised in respect of your full voting entitlement (or if this proxy form has been issued in respect of a designated account for a shareholder, the full voting entitlement for that designated account). Appointment of additional proxies You may appoint more than one proxy provided that each proxy is appointed to exercise rights attached to different shares. You may not appoint more than one proxy to exercise rights attached to any one share. To appoint more than one proxy, additional proxy form(s) may be obtained by contacting the Registrar’s helpline listed below under “Any questions?”, or you may photocopy this form. Please indicate in the box next to the proxy holder’s name (see reverse) the number of shares in relation to which they are authorised to act as your proxy. Please also indicate by ticking the box provided if the proxy instruction is one of multiple instructions being given. All forms must be signed and should be returned together in the same envelope. Directing your proxy how to vote If you wish to direct your proxy how to vote on the resolution, place a mark (“X”) in the “For” or “Against” box for the resolution. In the absence of instructions and to the extent permitted by law, your proxy may vote as he or she thinks fit. CREST electronic proxy appointment service To appoint one or more proxies or to give an instruction to a proxy (whether previously appointed or otherwise) via the CREST system, CREST messages must be received by the issuer’s agent (ID number 3RA50) not later than 10:00am (GMT) on Tuesday 18 January 2022 (or in the case of an adjourned meeting not later than 48 hours (excluding any part of a day that is not a working day) prior to the time and date set for the adjourned meeting). For this purpose, the time of receipt will be taken to be the time (as determined by the timestamp generated by the CREST system) from which the issuer’s agent is able to retrieve the message. BHP Group Plc may treat as invalid a proxy appointment sent by CREST in the circumstances set out in Regulation 35(5)(a) of the Uncertificated Securities Regulations 2001. Signing instructions You must sign this proxy form as follows in the spaces provided: Individual: Where the holding is in one name, the proxy form must be signed by the shareholder or the shareholder’s attorney. Joint holding: Where the holding is in more than one name, any one of the joint holders may sign the proxy form but the vote of the senior who renders a vote whether in person or by proxy shall be accepted to the exclusion of the votes of the other joint holders. Seniority is determined by the order in which the names stand in BHP Group Plc’s Share Register. Power of Attorney or Relevant Authority: If this form is signed by a person who is not the registered shareholder, then the relevant authority or a certified copy of it should either have been exhibited previously to the Registrar by the time above or be enclosed with this form, and the words “authorised signatory” should be added under the signature on the reverse of this form. Companies: Where the holding is in the name of a company, then this form must be given under the common seal of the company or executed in a manner having the same effect, or under the hand of an authorised officer or attorney who has not received any notice of revocation of that authority. As an alternative to appointing a proxy, any shareholder of BHP Group Plc which is a corporation may appoint one or more corporate representatives who may exercise on its behalf all its powers as a member, provided that if two or more corporate representatives purport to vote in respect of the same shares, if they purport to exercise the power in the same way as each other, the power is treated as exercised in that way, and in other cases the power is treated as not exercised. Electronic proxy lodgement: To appoint a proxy electronically go to eproxyappointment.com, then follow the instructions. You can also use the BHP mobile voting service for smartphones. To access these services you will need the Control Number, shown below, together with your Shareholder Reference Number (SRN) and Personal Identification Number (PIN), which are printed on the front of this proxy form.
