LODGEMENT OF YOUR PROXY FORM
To be valid, this proxy form must be received by 12 noon Melbourne time (11:00am Brisbane time) on Tuesday 15 November 2016.
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 in Brisbane on Thursday 17 November 2016 at 11:00am (Brisbane 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. An additional proxy form will be supplied on request.
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 on a poll and your votes will not be counted in computing the required majority.
In this proxy form, BHP Billiton Limited and BHP Billiton Plc together are referred to as BHP Billiton.
The key management personnel (KMP) of BHP Billiton (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 Chairman 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.
You must sign this proxy form as follows in the spaces provided:
Individual: Where the holding is in one name, the proxy form must be signed by the shareholder or the shareholders attorney.
Joint holding: Where the holding is in more than one name, all of the shareholders should sign.
Power of Attorney: To sign under Power of Attorney, you must have already lodged the Power of Attorney with the Share Registrar for notation. If you have not previously lodged this document for notation, please attach a certified photocopy of the Power of Attorney to this proxy form when you return it.
Companies: Where the company has a Sole Director who is also the Sole Company Secretary, this proxy form must be signed by that person. If the company (in accordance with section 204A of the Corporations Act 2001) does not have a Company Secretary, a Sole Director can sign alone. Otherwise this proxy form must be signed by a Director jointly with either another Director or a Company Secretary. Please indicate the office held by signing in the appropriate place.
