The companiesin which Shell has significant influence but not control are referred to as “associated companies” or “associates” and companies in which Shell has joint control arereferred to as “jointly controlled entities”. In this presentation, associates and jointly controlled entities are also referred to as “equity-accounted investments”. The term“Shell interest” is used for convenience to indicate the direct and/or indirect (for example, through our 23% shareholding in Woodside Petroleum Ltd.) ownershipinterest held by Shell in a venture, partnership or company, after exclusion of all third-party interest.This presentation contains forward-looking statements concerning the financial condition, results of operations and businesses of Royal Dutch Shell.
