• BHP Billiton: off-market share buy-back

    On 22 February 2011, BHP Billiton announced its intention to undertake an off-market buy-back of its own shares. The buy-back was conducted through a tender process during a specified tender period and was open to all shareholders who were registered as such on 3 March 2011, with certain exceptions.

    Participating shareholders are taken to have been paid a dividend of $40.57 (the dividend component) for each share bought back.

    The difference between the buy-back price and the dividend component is not a dividend for income tax purposes.
