THE HAGUE, The Netherlands, March 25, 2013

THE HAGUE, The Netherlands, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, AT&T*
announced that Shell has renewed the agreement that five years ago established
AT&T as Shell's global provider of secure, advanced communications and
mobility solutions. The contract has been renewed for another five years and
the agreement with Shell remains the largest retail communications services
contract signed by AT&T with a company headquartered outside the United
States.

AT&T data services are available in countries that represent 99 percent of the
world's economy, providing multinational businesses, like Shell, with access
to AT&T's advanced networking services to support their business around the
globe. These strategic services are critical for a global enterprise and its
ability to operate better and more efficiently in both its existing markets,
along with those targeted for expansion in the years ahead. For Shell, many
of their locations needing networking services are in harsh or inaccessible
locations.

Given the explosive growth in mobile data usage on smartphones, tablets and
other connected devices over the last five years, AT&T is also focused on
supporting clients with advanced mobility solutions around the world. Using
AT&T's Global Mobile Management® service, AT&T is managing mobile voice and
data for Shell users that are provided through other mobile operators around
the world, as well as providing Wi-Fi based solutions to help control costs
with mobile devices such as tablets and laptops.

In addition, AT&T is delivering wide area and local area networks, Unified
Communications technology, Internet-based voice services, and network- and
premise- based security solutions.

"It's been enormously rewarding to work with Shell, which operates in a very
dynamic and highly globalized industry," said Mark Shine, AT&T Senior Vice
President. "By providing global networking solutions accessible from just
about every corner of the planet, AT&T is delivering what it does best, so
that Shell can focus on its core business – providing energy products and
solutions for consumers and businesses around the world. And with the world
of business now going mobile, we know we can deliver an even higher level of
value to them."
