BHP H1 FY2024 Profit Beat LSEG Expectations

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): BHP Group Ltd. reported flat profits during the half-yearly period ended 31st December, 2023. It slightly beat expectations of the analysts. The results were negatively impacted by nickel-asset impairments. Meantime, the company reported resilient demand for iron ore and other key commodities during this period.

As per regulatory filing, the company’s underlying attributable profit from continuing operations in the six months totalled $6.57 billion, higher than the LSEG estimate of $6.42 million. The company reported 86% dip in net income from the prior year to $972 million. BHP posted strong revenue growth of 6%, driven by higher prices for commodities such as iron ore and copper, coupled with significant contributions from its new projects.
