Royal Dutch Shell plc announce revised 2014 interim dividend timetable
The Board of Royal Dutch Shell plc today announced a revised intended timetable for the 2014 quarterly interim dividends. This timetable takes into account changes made by the London Stock Exchange and Euronext Amsterdam based on the requirement of the EU’s recently adopted Central Securities Depositories Regulation to reduce the standard settlement period of three days to two days, effective as of October 6, 2014.
This change impacts the previously announced timetable only in relation to the third quarter 2014 interim dividend; the 2014 interim dividend timetable in relation to the first and second quarters is not affected. The dates impacted are the ex-dividend date for the RDS A and RDS B shares traded on the London Stock Exchange and the Euronext Amsterdam, and the Scrip reference share price announcement date.
