Shell – Company announcement

The United Kingdom Financial Services Authority (“FSA”) and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) today announced the final settlements that they have reached respectively with Shell. These settlements resolve the FSA’s and SEC’s investigations into the reserves recategorisation issues for the Shell companies. Consistent with the terms of the previously-announced agreements in principle, Shell settled without admitting or denying the findings and conclusions in the FSA’s Final Notice and the SEC’s Cease and Desist Order issued today. Shell also agreed to pay penalties of £17 million and $120 million in the FSA and SEC settlements, respectively, and committed in the SEC settlement to spend an additional $5 million for the development and implementation of a comprehensive internal compliance programme.

As reflected in the FSA Final Notice and the SEC Order issued today, Shell cooperated with the FSA and SEC in their investigations and has undertaken significant remedial actions in connection with its reserves recategorisation. Shell will continue to cooperate fully with the FSA, the SEC and other authorities.

Jeroen van der Veer, Chairman of Shell’s Committee of Managing Directors, commented in relation to the FSA and SEC announcements: “Shell has worked hard over the past months to improve its systems and controls and implement other remedial measures to prevent any recurrence of these unfortunate events. Shell has taken these matters seriously and has cooperated fully with the regulatory authorities. The conclusion of the FSA’s and SEC’s investigations into Shell represents another significant step for Shell in putting the reserves issues behind us and continuing our efforts to regain and maintain the confidence and trust of our investors, partners, customers and employees.”

Details of the FSA and SEC agreements can be found on the websites of those organisations, and, respectively.
