NOTIFICATION OF TRANSACTIONS OF DIRECTORS AND CONNECTED PERSONS NOTIFIED IN ACCORDANCE WITH DTR 3.1.2 R. Name of Issuer: Royal Dutch Shell plc Date of transaction ('DATE'): 11 March 2009 Nature of the transaction: Rollover of dividends into Royal Dutch Shell plc shares RDSA, RDS.A, RDSB and RDS.B (as given below) under the Long-Term Incentive Plan, Deferred Bonus Plan, Restricted Share plan and in connection with certain Shell defined contribution Plans. The values are as follows: Linda Cook $205,603.59 The number of shares is as follows: Linda Cook 4,668 RDS.A 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, 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, such dividend shares are disclosed and recorded on the basis of the number of shares conditionally awarded. 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. Restricted Share Plan ('RSP') The RSP is a share plan under which certain employees and Directors may receive a conditional award of shares. The shares vest three years after the award date subject to the employee or the Director being employed by a Shell Group company at that time. The participation of Directors in this plan was approved at the Annual General Meeting of Royal Dutch Shell plc on 20 May 2008. The conditional shares awarded under the RSP attract dividends in the form of shares ('dividend shares') during the vesting period. 13 March 2009 Name of Contact: Mark Edwards Phone number of contact: 020 7934 2817 END
