Shell sets for an overhaul, unveils timetable of Simplification

As a result, the Board has also decided to change the company’s name to Shell plc which will be implemented in January 2022, with a further announcement to be made at the time.

Today’s decisions follow the completion of the consultation with the CentraleOndernemingsraad van Shell Nederland (Central Staff Council of Shell Netherlands) and the Shell European Works Council, and come after a December 10, 2021 shareholder vote giving the Board overwhelming approval for the necessary amendments to the Company’s Articles of Association, which have been adopted with immediate effect.

As described in the circular published on November 15, 2021, the Simplification entails:

  • establishing a single line of shares to eliminate the complexity of Shell’s A/B share structure; and
  • aligning Shell’s tax residence with its country of incorporation in the UK by relocating Board and Executive Committee meetings, and the CEO and CFO, to the UK; and consequently, changing the company’s name from Royal Dutch Shell plc to Shell plc.

The expected timetable of the principal events for the Simplification is set out in paragraph below. Click link Shell Simplification
