Note
Long Term Incentive Plan (“LTIP”)
The LTIP is a performance based share plan under which Directors receive a conditional award of shares (“performance shares”). The actual number of performance shares which Directors could finally receive under the plan ranges from nil to two times the conditional award (1), subject to the performance of the Company over a period of at least three years. For the purposes of disclosure and maintenance of certain statutory records, the number of performance shares is taken to be one times the number of performance shares conditionally awarded. Performance shares attract dividends in the form of shares (“dividend shares”) and, whilst Directors could finally receive dividend shares based on two times the conditional award (1), such dividend shares are disclosed and recorded on the basis of the number of shares conditionally awarded. Further details of the LTIP can be found in the Royal Dutch Shell plc Annual Report and Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2006.
(1) in respect of conditional awards made in 2005 onwards
Deferred Bonus Plan (“DBP”)
The DBP provides for Directors to accrue dividends in the form of shares (“dividend shares”) on their deferred bonus shares and, provided certain conditions are met, to receive one guaranteed matching share for every four deferred bonus and dividend shares. Additional performance related matching shares can be earned depending on the performance of the Company, the number of such additional matching shares ranging from nil to three for every four deferred bonus shares and dividend shares held. For the purposes of disclosure and maintenance of certain statutory records, the number of shares is taken to be the number of deferred bonus shares, dividend shares on such deferred bonus shares, and the guaranteed matching shares. Further details of the DBP can be found in the Royal Dutch Shell plc Annual Report and Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2006.
