Any proxy form (and any Power of Attorney under which it is signed) received after that time will not be valid for the scheduled meeting. How to complete this proxy form If you are unable to attend the Annual General Meeting to be held virtually on Thursday 11 November 2021 at 4:00 pm (Melbourne time), you are encouraged to appoint a person or body corporate who will attend as your proxy and exercise your right to vote your shares. If you appoint a body corporate as your proxy, the body corporate should appoint a person as its representative at the Annual General Meeting in accordance with section 250D of the Corporations Act 2001. Appointment of a second proxy A shareholder entitled to cast two or more votes may appoint up to two proxies (whether shareholders or not) to attend the meeting and vote. A separate proxy form should be used for each proxy appointment. Directing your proxy how to vote If you wish to direct your proxy how to vote (or to abstain from voting) on any resolution, place a mark (“X”) in the “For”, “Against” or “Abstain” box for each resolution. If you mark more than one box on a resolution, your vote on that resolution will be invalid. If you mark the “Abstain” box for a particular resolution, you are directing your proxy not to vote on your behalf and your votes will not be counted in computing the required majority. IMPORTANT NOTE: In this proxy form, BHP Group Limited and BHP Group Plc together are referred to as BHP. The key management personnel (‘KMP’) of BHP (which includes each of the Directors) and their closely related parties will not be able to vote as your proxy on Items 7, 8 and 9 unless you tell them how to vote or, if the Chair of the Meeting is your proxy, you expressly authorise him to vote even though Items 7, 8 and 9 are connected with the remuneration of the KMP. If you intend to appoint a member of the KMP as your proxy, you can direct them to vote for or against or to abstain from voting on Items 7, 8 and 9 by marking the appropriate boxes on the proxy form.
