   A different currency election date may apply to shareholders holding 
shares in a securities account with a bank or financial institution 
ultimately holding through Euroclear Nederland. This may also apply to 
other shareholders who do not hold their shares either directly on the 
Register of Members or in the corporate sponsored nominee arrangement. 
Shareholders can contact their broker, financial intermediary, bank or 
financial institution for the election deadline that applies. 
   Taxation - cash dividends 
   Cash dividends on A Shares will be subject to the deduction of Dutch 
dividend withholding tax at the rate of 15%, which may be reduced in 
certain circumstances. Non-Dutch resident shareholders, depending on 
their particular circumstances, may be entitled to a full or partial 
refund of Dutch dividend withholding tax. 
   If you are uncertain as to the tax treatment of any dividends you should 
consult your tax advisor. 
   Dividend Reinvestment Programmes ("DRIP") 
   The following organisations operate Dividend Reinvestment Plans 
("DRIPs") which enable RDS shareholders to elect to have their dividend 
payments used to purchase RDS shares of the same class as those already 
held by them: 
   -- Equiniti Financial Services Limited ("EFSL"), for those holding shares 
      (a) directly on the register as certificate holder or as CREST Member and 
      (b) via the Nominee Service; 
   -- ABN-AMRO NV ("ABN") for Financial Intermediaries holding 'A' shares or 
      'B' shares via Euroclear Nederland; 
   -- "JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A." for holders of 'A' and 'B' American 
      Depository Shares; and 
   -- Other DRIPs may also be available from the intermediary through which 
      investors hold their shares. 
   Such organisations provide their DRIPs fully on their account and not on 
behalf of Royal Dutch Shell plc. Interested parties should contact DRIP 
Offerors directly. 
   More information can be found at 
   To be eligible for the next dividend, shareholders must make a valid 
dividend reinvestment election before the published date for the close 
of elections.
