IMPORTANT SHAREHOLDER NOTICE: Khang & Khang LLP Announces an Ongoing Investigation of Claims against BHP Billiton Limited and Strongly Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm

IRVINE, Calif.--()--Khang & Khang LLP announces that it is investigating claims of potential misrepresentations by BHP Billiton Limited (“BHP Billiton” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BHP). The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its officers violated securities laws by issuing misleading information to investors.

If you purchased shares of BHP Billiton during the Class Period, please contact Joon M. Khang, Esquire, of Khang & Khang, 18101 Von Karman Avenue, 3rd Floor, Irvine, CA 92612, by telephone: (949) 419-3834, or by e-mail at joon@khanglaw.com.

There has been no class certification in this case. Until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. You may choose to take no action and remain a passive class member.

The investigation concerns whether the Company violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the investigation will focus on a February 23, 2016, Bloomberg Business report that Brazilian police are pursuing a court order to arrest certain Mineracao SA executives. This court order request follows the Brazilian government’s November 27, 2015 statement that it was going to sue BHP Billiton and its partner, Vale SA, over a catastrophic dam failure earlier in the month.

If you wish to learn more about this lawsuit, or if you have any questions concerning this notice or your rights, please contact Joon M. Khang, a prominent litigator for almost two decades, by telephone: (949) 419-3834, or by e-mail at joon@khanglaw.com.
