Underlying profit for the full year ended June 30 rose to $8.93 billion from $6.73 billion a year earlier. That missed an estimate of $9.27 billion according to 15 analysts polled by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Australia’s biggest company by market value declared a final dividend of $0.63 per share, up from $0.43 a share last year.
