Royal Dutch Shell plc - Share Buy-back Programme

11:57 EDT Friday, March 28, 2014

LONDON, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

?

Royal Dutch Shell plc (the 'Company') (NYSE:RDS.A) (NYSE:RDS.B) announces that it has entered into an irrevocable, non-discretionary arrangement with an independent third party to enable the purchase of 'B' ordinary shares, for cancellation, during the period from 31 March 2014 up to and including 30 April 2014 which period includes the 2014 first quarter results close period.

As previously announced, the purpose of the share buy-back programme is to offset dilution created by the issuance of shares for the Company's Scrip Dividend Programme.   At this time, it is less economic for the Company to purchase 'A' ordinary shares under the share buy-back programme due to Dutch dividend withholding Tax rules.

Any purchases will be effected within certain pre-set parameters and in accordance with the Company's general authority to repurchase shares and Chapter 12 of the Listing Rules.
