First quarter 2009 results and interim dividend announcement
"First quarter 2009 performance was affected by the weaker global economy, with a challenging Upstream and Downstream business environment. As we announced previously, our dividend for first quarter 2009 will be $0.42 per share, an increase of 5%. We continue to make significant investments in the company for future profitability. Industry conditions remain challenging, and our focus is on capital discipline and costs. We are taking a prudent approach to this downturn, focused on sustaining a strong position in the energy landscape. Shell people, operational excellence, good investments and technology are our cornerstones for the future."
