First-half profits fell 8% at the world's biggest miner BHP Group.
The company blamed the fall on production disruptions and a decline in commodity prices during the period.
Underlying profit from continuing operations for the six months ended 31 December fell to $4.03bn (£3.12bn) from $4.40bn a year ago. That was some way below analyst estimates of $4.209bn.
The company declared an interim dividend of $0.55 per share, the same as last year.
