Final dual meetings for Royal Dutch Shell: If approved, the new company will be known as Royal Dutch Shell plc

Financial Times: Final dual meetings for Royal Dutch Shell: If approved, the new company will be known as Royal Dutch Shell plc

Monday 27 June 2005

Royal Dutch Shell, the Anglo-Dutch energy group, will hold simultaneous annual meetings in London and the Hague for the final time, if shareholders approve the belated union of the two parent companies.

Royal Dutch and Shell Transport and Trading will be joined under a single board for the first time since they combined forces in 1907, part of a sweeping re-organisation of the company after last year’s reserve downgrade scandal.

If approved, the new company will be known as Royal Dutch Shell plc, and will trade in London and will be added to the FTSE UK indices. However, the company will be headquartered in Holland.

In addition to approving the plan, 95 per cent of Royal Dutch shareholders must tender their shares before the offer closes on July 18. Failing that, the two existing boards must step in to approve the transaction at a lower level.

The new shares are due to start trading on July 20.
