Shell Exploration and Production (XL) B.V.("Shell Bidco"), a wholly-owned 
subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc ("Shell"), made an offer in February 2012 
to acquire Cove Energy plc ("Cove"), in order to enter potential liquefied 
natural gas developments in Mozambique, and other exploration positions in the 
region. Subsequently, the Takeover Panel has announced an Auction Procedure to 
conclude this potential takeover. Shell Bidco has today decided not to revise 
its offer of 220 pence in cash for each share of Cove, and not take part in the 
Auction Procedure for Cove.
