In the latest financial year, dividends were cut for the first time in the group’s history and huge financial losses were recorded.

  • The executive team has however outlined a strategy focused on creating value and growing cash returns for shareholders, believing that the group can create value in all market conditions due to its strong portfolio and financial capabilities. In terms of increasing productivity, gains of US$3.6 billion dollars are expected by the end of the 2017 financial year, in line with unit costs for all BHP Billiton’s major business decreasing by almost half. The group has identified several promising prospects for capital investments which could offer attractive medium-term growth options, whilst exploration activity is increasing to take advantage of falling costs.

The company still presents an opportunity for investors to buy BHP Billiton shares at a low price. An upswing in commodity prices and effective implementation of recovery strategies could significantly strengthen BHP Billiton share price.
