Note 
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 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. Further details of the
LTIP can be found in the Royal Dutch Shell Annual Report and Form 20-F for the
year ended December 31, 2011. 
Performance Share Plan ("PSP") 
When awards are made under the LTIP other than to PDMRs the plan is called the
Performance Share Plan. Andrew Brown received awards under the PSP prior to his
appointment as a PDMR with effect from April 1, 2012. Further details of the
PSP can be found in the Royal Dutch Shell Annual Report and Form 20-F for the
year ended December 31, 2011. 
Deferred Bonus Plan ("DBP") 
The DBP requires that Executive Directors and Persons Discharging Managerial
Responsibility invest no less than 25% of their annual bonus in deferred bonus
shares. They may choose to invest up to 50% in such shares and the Plan
provides for dividends in the form of shares ("dividend shares") to be accrued
on the deferred bonus shares. For the purposes of disclosure and maintenance of
certain statutory records, the number of shares does not include any
performance-related matching shares that may be earned in accordance with the
plan rules applicable to each award, the number of such performance related
matching shares being unknown until the performance criteria are assessed at
the end of the performance period. Further details of the DBP can be found in
the Royal Dutch Shell Annual Report and Form 20-F for the year ended December
31, 2011. 
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 conditional shares awarded under the RSP attract dividends in
the form of shares ("dividend shares") during the retention period. Further
details of the RSP can be found in the Royal Dutch Shell Annual Report and Form
20-F for the year ended December 31, 2011.
