RDS Q4 2011 Dividend announcement Share this article PrintAlert TIDMRDSA TIDMRDSB Royal Dutch Shell PLC FOURTH QUARTER 2011 INTERIM DIVIDEND The Board of Royal Dutch Shell plc ("RDS") today announced an interim dividend in respect of the fourth quarter of 2011 of US$0.42 per A ordinary share ("A Share") and B ordinary share ("B Share"), equal to the US dollar dividend for the same quarter last year. The Board expects that the first quarter 2012 interim dividend will be US$0.43, an increase of 2% over the US dollar dividend for the same quarter in the previous year. The first quarter 2012 interim dividend is scheduled to be announced on April 26, 2012. RDS provides eligible shareholders with a choice to receive dividends in cash or in shares via a Scrip Dividend Programme ("the Programme"). For further details please see below. Details relating to the fourth quarter 2011 interim dividend It is expected that cash dividends on the B Shares will be paid via the Dividend Access Mechanism from UK-sourced income of the Shell Group. Per ordinary share Q4 2011 RDS A Shares (US$) 0.42 RDS B Shares (US$) 0.42 Dividends declared on A Shares will be paid, by default, in euro, although holders of A Shares will be able to elect to receive dividends in pounds sterling. Dividends declared on B Shares will be paid, by default, in pounds sterling, although holders of B Shares will be able to elect to receive dividends in euro. The pounds sterling and euro equivalent dividend payments will be announced on March 9, 2012. Per ADS Q4 2011 RDS A ADSs (US$) 0.84 RDS B ADSs (US$) 0.84 Dividends declared on American Depository Shares ("ADSs") will be paid, by default, in US dollars. ADS stands for an American Depositary Share. ADR stands for an American Depositary Receipt. An ADR is a certificate that evidences ADSs. ADSs are listed on the NYSE under the symbols RDS.A and RDS.B. Each ADS represents two ordinary shares, two A Shares in the case of RDS.A or two B Shares in the case of RDS.B. In many cases the terms ADR and ADS are used interchangeably. Scrip Dividend Programme RDS provides shareholders with a choice to receive dividends in cash or in shares via a Scrip Dividend Programme. Under the Programme shareholders can increase their shareholding in RDS by choosing to receive new shares instead of cash dividends if declared by RDS. Only new A Shares will be issued under the Programme, including to shareholders who currently hold B Shares. Joining the Programme may offer a tax advantage in some countries compared with receiving cash dividends. In particular, dividends paid out as shares will not be subject to Dutch dividend withholding tax (currently 15 per cent) and will not generally be taxed on receipt by a UK shareholder or a Dutch corporate shareholder. Shareholders who elect to join the Programme will increase the number of shares held in RDS without having to buy existing shares in the market, thereby avoiding associated dealing costs. Shareholders who do not join the Programme will continue to receive in cash any dividends declared by RDS. Shareholders who held only B Shares and joined the Scrip Dividend Programme are reminded they will need to make a Scrip Dividend Election in respect of their new A Shares if they wish to join the Programme in respect of such new shares. However, this is only necessary if the shareholder has not previously made a Scrip Dividend Election in respect of any new A Shares issued. For further information on the Programme, including how to join if you are eligible, please refer to the appropriate publication available on Dividend timetable for the fourth quarter 2011 interim dividend Announcement date Feb 2, 2012 Ex-dividend date Feb 15, 2012 Record date Feb 17, 2012 Scrip reference share price announcement date Feb 22, 2012 Closing of scrip election and currency election * Mar 2, 2012 Pounds sterling and euro equivalents announcement date Mar 9, 2012 Payment date Mar 22, 2012 * A different scrip election date may apply to registered and non registered ADS holders. Registered ADS holders can contact The Bank of New York Mellon for the election deadline that applies. Non registered ADS holders can contact their broker, financial intermediary, bank or financial institution for the election deadline that applies. Both a different scrip and currency election date may apply to shareholders holding shares in a securities account with a bank or financial institution ultimately holding through Euroclear Nederland. Please contact your broker, financial intermediary, bank or financial institution where you hold your securities account for the election deadline that applies. Taxation cash dividends Cash dividends on A Shares will be subject to the deduction of Netherlands dividend withholding tax at the rate of 15%, which may be reduced in certain circumstances. Provided certain conditions are met, shareholders in receipt of A Share cash dividends may also be entitled to a non-payable dividend tax credit in the United Kingdom. Shareholders resident in the United Kingdom, receiving cash dividends on B Shares through the Dividend Access Mechanism, are entitled to a tax credit. This tax credit is not repayable. Non-residents may also be entitled to a tax credit, if double tax arrangements between the United Kingdom and their country of residence so provide, or if they are eligible for relief given to non-residents with certain special connections with the United Kingdom or to nationals of states in the European Economic Area. The amount of tax credit is 10/90ths of the cash dividend, the tax credit referable to the fourth quarter 2011 interim dividend of US$0.42 is US$0.05 per ordinary share and the dividend and tax credit together amount to US$0.47. The pounds sterling and euro equivalents will be announced on March 9, 2012.

AS FAR AS I CAN SEE it has a BUY rating and yields just over 5% with a SHARE PRICE POTENTIAL to rise just under 10% within 3 months of course all depends on the world economy and when the next ex divi date is due as you seem to have missed this one i might well decide to add some euro denominated SHELL to my portfolio once the market is less volitile NAV seems very good

Interesting thread I'm looking for a share that gives a decent divi 5% plus if possible, with view to gradual increases
Munich Re is sporting a divi of over 7% - payable in April - they say the divi will remain 'stable' due to the difficult year. Last years divi came in at €6.25. Red Electrica also sports a 7% divi for 2012 and trades on a p/e of 8.7 which is too low for a monopoly imo ( albeit regulated ). REE is a S&P Euro 350 Dividend Aristocrat constituent too.
i got the gdf divi and might well get the vinci divi in december
GDF Suez Won't Cut Dividend in Response to Freeze, Tax QBy Tara Patel - Nov 18, 2011 1:39 PM GMT+0100 . inShare.0 More Business ExchangeBuzz up!DiggPrint Email ...GDF Suez (GSZ) SA, operator of Europe's biggest natural-gas network, won't cut its dividend for the next two years even as the company struggles to cope with a freeze on domestic gas tariffs and higher taxes in Belgium. The annual payout to shareholders will be "at least equal" to last year's dividend, while sales and earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization will be higher, Chief Executive Officer Gerard Mestrallet told an investor conference today in Paris. The utility, which is based in Paris, is dealing with a freeze in natural gas prices in France for consumers ahead of next year's presidential elections and a more than doubling of a nuclear tax in Belgium. GDF Suez has mounted a legal challenge against the French government, its biggest shareholder, over the price freeze and has vowed to contest the Belgian tax using "all legal means." The company posted Ebitda of 15.1 billion euros ($20.53 billion) last year on sales of 84.5 billion euros. It paid a dividend of 1.50 euros a share. GDF Suez's growth will come in part from raising power production outside Europe, Mestrallet said, adding that regulatory decisions by the French and Belgium governments have depressed the company's share price. The stock is down 28 percent this year. 'Hurting Us' "There are two state decisions that are hurting us," Mestrallet said today. "This is the kind of thing that is happening now." Regulatory decisions have multiplied and "the utility industry isn't doing very well," he said. The French gas price freeze will result in a shortfall for the company of 400 million euros, GDF Suez has said. The Belgian decision would raise an annual nuclear tax to 550 million euros from a previously-agreed annual level of 215 million to 245 million euros, GDF Suez has said. It would also cancel a 10-year lifetime extension for three reactors in that country. Shutting the reactors in 2015 would lower GDF Suez's Belgian nuclear capacity by about a third, or 1,800 megawatts, effectively reducing the utility's worldwide electricity production capacity by 2 percent, Mestrallet said today. "I am fighting this," he said. To contact the reporter on this story: Tara Patel in Paris at To contact the editor responsible for this story: Will Kennedy at

source: The Telegraph Five stocks for dividends Five of the best blue-chip shares showing a good yield. By Nina Montagu-Smith Published: 4:38PM BST 10 Aug 2009 Share prices have been on the move since March - with a 30 per cent rise in the FTSE index of shares since then. But prices are mostly still much lower than before panic properly set in last Autumn, and some are still paying good dividends which can be relied on to continue. For those willing to take on the risk of investing in shares - don't forget that the price can go down as well as up - dividends can prove a good source of investment income, and there is still time to get in at a good price. We sift five of the best blue-chip shares showing a good yield. Related Articles Football managers and the argument for active fund management Investors suffer double whammy on shares QUESTOR: Five shares for income seekers in 2009 A good time to dive into Pennon shares Talk that QBE is lining up UBS for RSA bidUnited Utilities 438p, paying 7.5 per cent The price of shares in United Utilities has fallen massively from 775p at the end of December 2006 to a low of 438p, falling particularly sharply in the past three months. One reason for this is that the dividend may be at risk. However, as it currently represents an impressive 7.5 per cent of the share price, there is still room to maintain a decent income, even if it is cut. The company's dividend "cover" is only 1.8, meaning it could pay the dividend from its earnings 1.8 times. Richard Hunter, from stockbroking and financial advisory firm Hargreaves Lansdown, says: "Dividend cover is very important. Any figure of around two is comfortable, and alarm bells would normally start ringing at anything under 1.5, and certainly below one." UK companies usually do all they can to maintain dividend payments, so when there is a cut, it can be dramatic, warns Brian Dennehy of financial advisory firm Dennehy Weller. "United Utilities' current dividend yield is at the higher end of investors' expectations, and the share price indicates that people expect it to be cut." BP 509p, paying 6.4 per cent BP's dividend makes up 12 per cent of all investor payouts by the FTSE 100 - the UK's largest 100 companies, therefore it is considered to be particularly important. The shares in the oil group, which recently reported strong profits, have fallen from 580p at the end of 2006 to 509p yesterday, with a low of 380p in between. The shares are yielding a very good 6.4 per cent and the dividend is covered a very healthy 2.5 times. BP is doing a great deal to focus on cost efficiencies at the moment, says Hunter, although he points out that the performance of its shares are closely linked to the price of oil, which in recent years has been less than predictable. However, Dennehy adds: "BP is clearly determined to maintain the dividend. I also think it is more likely that problems of supply will push the oil price up, rather than down." Vodafone 127p, paying 6.1 per cent The telecoms group, which has 315 million customers around the world, is paying a dividend representing 6.1 per cent of its share price, and it is covered 2.2 times by earnings. Following the collapse in technology, telecoms and media stock prices at the start of the decade, when Vodafone fell from around 400p to 100p, the price has moved only a little. At the end of 2006, Vodafone shares cost 140p each, falling to 100p last Autumn, and were back at 127p yesterday. "This company is a Steady Eddie," says Dennehy. "It has a straightforward business model and doesn't rely heavily on debt. It has very good cash flow and can afford to maintain the dividend." GlaxoSmithKline £11.66, paying 4.9 per cent The shares in the pharmaceuticals group have, like Vodafone, being going sideways since the middle of 2002. The dividend now represents just under 5 per cent of the £11.66 share price, but is only covered 1.9 times by earnings. The shares cost £13.50 at the end of 2006, and fell to around £10 last Autumn. However, the company is still a good bet, says Dennehy. "The bottom line is that this is a solid company which has very good cash flow. Its dividend will be maintained." BAE Systems 320p, paying 4.5 per cent With a dividend which is 3.5 times covered by earnings, "it almost sounds like BAE Systems is being mean", says Dennehy. There are certainly no concerns about the defence giant maintaining its dividend, which currently represents 4.5 per cent of the share price. The shares have fallen from around 430p at the end of 2006, hitting a low of just over 300p last Autumn, but there are concerns it may falter further. "There is uncertainty about future profits," says Dennehy. Hunter adds: "Restraints on Government defence spending could prove difficult for BAE going forward. However, the company's order book does continue to grow."
Jeffian Who do you recommend for dividends I am inteested in what you have been saying
It's a bit scary reviving this thread. As a fan of dividends, does anyone else feel that they have become 'unfashionable'? OK, we know the banks have had their problems (bye bye LLOY div) and there are obvious strains in areas of the economy such as housebuilding (PSN, TPK etc) and engineering (MRX) and any company with any borrowings seems to be prevented by their banks from paying out (LUP, ETI, PUB) but there are also plenty of companies which are making reasonable eps which still feel they need to cut or waive the divi. Whilst it's impossible to get any reasonable return on cash deposits, this is a nightmare for PI's but also it is little appreciated how much the institutions rely on them (if you're looking to achieve 7% annual growth, a divi goes a long way to help) and if the drought continues much longer, I think this will add to the strains on pension funds etc. Bring back divis, I say!
So should one perhaps expect large buying leading up to the date for a share like CRODA with a large divi payment about to take place ?
