Information for investors in Royal Dutch
On October 28, 2004, the Royal Dutch Boards and the Shell Transport Board announced that they had unanimously agreed, in principle, to propose to shareholders the unification of Royal Dutch and Shell Transport under a single new parent company, Royal Dutch Shell plc. To implement the proposal, Royal Dutch Shell made an offer (the "Offer") to acquire all of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Royal Dutch in exchange for Royal Dutch Shell Class A ordinary shares ("A" Shares) or American depositary receipts representing "A" Shares. The Offer acceptance period ended on July 18, 2005 at 11:00 pm Central European Time.
Subsequent Offer Acceptance Period
As announced on July 20, 2005, Royal Dutch Shell advises that a subsequent offer acceptance period beginning July 20, 2005 will expire at 3:00 p.m. Amsterdam time on August 9, 2005 (the "Subsequent Offer Acceptance Period"). During this period, holders of Royal Dutch Shares are permitted - subject to the terms of the Royal Dutch Offer documents - to tender any remaining Royal Dutch Shares.
The Subsequent Offer Acceptance Period is not an extension of the Offer and it will not affect the timing of the acceptance and delivery of Royal Dutch Shares previously tendered and accepted for exchange in the Offer. During the Subsequent Offer Acceptance Period there will be no withdrawal rights either for Royal Dutch Shares tendered for exchange in the Offer or for those tendered during the Subsequent Offer Acceptance Period. Royal Dutch Shell will promptly accept for exchange any Royal Dutch Shares tendered during the Subsequent Offer Acceptance Period at the same exchange ratio as in the Offer period (that is, two Royal Dutch Shell Class A ordinary shares for every Royal Dutch Share held in bearer or Hague registry form tendered and one Royal Dutch Shell Class A ADR (representing two Royal Dutch Shell Class A Shares) for every Royal Dutch Share held in New York registry form tendered).
