BHP Billiton Limited (ASX:BHP) has reported a 31% per cent fall in full year attributable profit to $11.8 billion. The result missed the markets expectations due to a higher effective tax rate for the period and one off items totalling $700mln. Excluding the tax outcome and one off items, the result was largely in line with expectations. Cost cutting remains a focus for the miner with $2.7bln in costs taken out of the business over the last 12 months. A final dividend of $0.59 was announced. For more info visit: (VIEW LINK)
