Shell to publish Q1 figures on May 1, when the stock exchange is shut

Oil giant Shell is publishing its first quarter 2014 figures on May 1, a day when the Amsterdam stock exchange is closed, broadcaster RTLZ says on Thursday.

Shell is by far the biggest company listed in Amsterdam but traders will not be able to react to the figures, RTLZ points out. The London and Wall Street exchanges are not closed on May 1.

‘Investors must be able to react to the figures,’ one trader told the broadcaster. ‘It is also bad for the stock exchange itself which will miss out on business.’
