Financial Risk Analysis
BHP Group Limited:
BHP Group Limited is an Australian public corporation that created the BHP Group trading as BHP in collaboration with UK-BHP Group Plc. The discovery, development, and use of minerals and energy resources provide money for the organization. BHP employs roughly 34,480 employees, with over 42,000 contractors, and works in over 90 locations across the continent, including its global headquarters in Melbourne (Edmonds, 2019). BHP Group is organized as a corporate company with two parent companies: BHP Group Limited, based in Australia, which is listed on the ASX and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the BHP code, and BHP Group Plc, based in the United Kingdom
Interest Risk: Interest rate exchange contracts and cash-generating exchange contracts are used by the firm. A maximum of 65 percent of variable rate debt can be kept, with a low rate of 35 percent.
Formula 1 : Interest rate calculation formula: (Actual price – new price) / new price.
Currency Risk: The certain operational and capital costs are incurred in currencies other than the functional currency. To a lesser level, a portion of sales is made in currencies other than the transaction’s functional currency, and some exchange control rules may necessitate cash to be maintained in non-functional currencies (Szturo,2021).
Formula 2 : Currency Risk formula: (1 + rFM) (1 + rFX) = (1 + rBHP)
rBHP = Dollar Return on Foreign Investment, Return to international markets in local currency (rFM). rFX is an abbreviation meaning “return to foreign exchange.”
Assume the bond sells for 143 because interest rates have dropped by half a percentage point – a difference of 50 basis points. There is a percentage of 1 bps.
(110 – 143)/143 = -0.23. This interest rate risk is 23% (decrease)
Initial Invest: $35,000, Initial Exchange Rate(Initial): $2.13 per PS, Final Exchange Rate(Final): $1.99 per PS
rFM = 11%
(1 + rBHP) = (1 + rFM) (1 + rFX)
(1 + rBHP) = (1 + .11) (1 + .9342)
(1 + rBHP) = (1.11) (.9342) = 1.036
rBHP = 3.6%
