BHP Billiton: Result 2012

Far from being a disaster, BHP's result confirmed the high quality nature of the business.

Predictions that lower commodity prices would savage BHP Billiton’s full year results turned out to be unfounded. Lower prices did result in lower profits; underlying net profit was down 21% to US$17.1bn after excluding an embarrassing writedown of shale gas assets and other one-offs, but considering the fall in commodity prices, this was an excellent result. From earnings per share of US$3.26, down 18%, a fully franked dividend of US$1.12 (ex-date 03 Sep) was declared.
