Irish Independent: Shell keen to put scandal behind it

Irish Independent: Shell keen to put scandal behind it

Sept 18, 2004

ROYAL Dutch/Shell Group is expected to try to put the damaging scandal of its overstated oil reserves behind it when it gives its annual strategy presentation next week.

Analysts said they hoped the presentation would give clues on asset disposals, expected changes in Shell’s governance structure and details of how the company plans to achieve its reserve replacement targets in coming years.

More clarity on those issues could support its share price, they said.

However, some in the market do not expect much news and believe the focus will be on whether senior management shows it is committed to changing what some consider Shell’s inadequate corporate governance structure. read more

Test of power for market watchdog

Financial Times: Test of power for market watchdog

Sir Philip Watts, ousted chairman of Royal Dutch/Shell, has complained that the FSA “identified and prejudiced him” in its action against the company.

Published: September 18 2004

Big Brother, the Spanish Inquisition, Goliath – it is easy to caricature the Financial Services Authority. Perhaps the world’s most powerful regulator in terms of scope, it has also been raising its profile as an enforcer.

Now it faces a series of challenges from companies and individuals on the receiving end. Legal & General, the life assurer, is appealing against a £1.1m fine for mis-selling endowment mortgages: its hearing started this week at the Financial Services and Markets Tribunal. Sir Philip Watts, ousted chairman of Royal Dutch/Shell, has complained that the FSA “identified and prejudiced him” in its action against the company. A tribunal hearing is also pending over a £750,000 fine on Paul Davidson over a spreadbet. read more

You can’t be sure of Shell, says the City

The Guardian: You can’t be sure of Shell, says the City

With an investor charm offensive this week and a terrible year behind them, executives must be nostalgic for the group’s imperial past: “Shell will this week make a desperate attempt to draw a line under the oil reserves scandal…”

TERRY MACALISTER

Sept 18, 2004

Shell will this week make a desperate attempt to draw a line under the oil reserves scandal that has dogged the company since the start of the year by outlining its strategic plans for the future.

But chairman Jeroen van der Veer and his exploration boss, Malcolm Brinded, will hold the critical briefing in the City on Wednesday with menacing storm clouds hanging over their heads.

While Hurricane Ivan forced the Anglo-Dutch oil giant to shut down platforms in the Gulf of Mexico earlier this week, a verbal hurricane – emanating from its dismissed former chairman Sir Philip Watts – was blasting the Financial Services Authority. read more
