Expert Comments:

Nilanjan Choudhury, Zacks Investment Research (5/4/16)
"Royal Dutch Shell Plc reported better-than-expected first-quarter earnings on higher production and aggressive cost cutting measures. . .with its outperformance, Shell joins integrated peers like Exxon Mobil and BP in braving low oil prices to post an earnings beat. . .the Hague-based Shell reported earnings per ADR (on a current cost of supplies basis)—excluding one-time items and gains or losses from inventories—of $0.43, above the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.26."

Zacks Investment Research (3/30/16)
"Royal Dutch Shell Plc is reportedly considering the divestment of some of its North Sea assets to regain its financial health post the 35B GBP acquisition of BG Group last month. The company intends to divest assets worth as much as $30B over 2016–2018. . .Shell believes that its North Sea assets are old and mature and, hence, worth selling."

Zacks Equity Research (2/16/16)
"Almost a year after entering into the deal, integrated energy major Royal Dutch Shell Plc closed its merger with BG Group. . .following the closure of the transaction, Shell has become the biggest liquefied natural gas firm in the world. On top of that, the company will now get access to significant resources off the coast of Brazil." -Zacks Equity Research

Philip Waller, Proactive Investors (2/4/16)
"Shares in Royal Dutch Shell Plc rose as investors welcomed upbeat earnings news and its decision to maintain its dividend. . .the company said a strong refining performance had helped to offset a hit from low oil prices and vowed to follow up $12.5B of cost cuts last year with more in 2016."

Philip Waller, Proactive Investors (1/27/16)
"Royal Dutch Shell Plc shareholders have backed its controversial GBP 35.6 billion merger with gas explorer and producer BG Group. . .Shell said investors had cast just over 83.1% of total votes in favor of the deal. . .investors in BG are set to vote on the deal on Thursday. If they back it, the pair expect the merger to complete on Feb. 15, subject to some conditions being met. . .Shell expects the tie-up to enhance its free cash flow, accelerate its deep-water and liquefied natural gas strategy and create a springboard to reshape itself."

Fadel Gheit, Oppenheimer & Co. (11/20/15)
"The successful integration of BG Group next year could be a turning point for Royal Dutch Shell Plc, creating long-term shareholder value via synergy benefits, operational improvements, capital efficiency and cost savings. . .we expect the company to generate operating cash flow of $27.5B this year and $31.4B next, which will fund capex of $27.9B and $26.6B, and dividends of $10.7B and $12.2B."
