Activist hedge fund Elliott Management argues that BHP’s $529m settlement of a tax dispute in November has strengthened the case for the abolition of its dual-listed structure. Elliott CEO Paul Singer believes that such a move would have broad support among BHP shareholders in the wake of the deal with the Australian Taxation Office regarding its Singapore marketing hub. However, British shareholders may be reluctant to support scrapping the dual listing, which could potentially result in BHP’s removal from the FTSE 100.
