First quarter interim dividend for 2012
Scrip Dividend Programme
 
On 1 May 2012, the Directors of BP p.l.c. announced that the interim dividend for the first quarter 2012 would be US$0.08 per ordinary share (US$0.48 per ADS). This interim dividend is to be paid on 27 June 2012 to shareholders on the share register on 11 May 2012. The dividend is payable in cash in sterling to holders of ordinary shares and in US dollars to holders of ADSs. A scrip dividend alternative will be made available for this dividend allowing shareholders to elect to receive their dividend in the form of new ordinary shares and ADS holders in the form of new ADSs.
 
The 'Reference Share Price' for the issue of new ordinary shares under the scrip dividend alternative is:
 
US$ 6.581 for each new ordinary share.
 
For holders of ordinary shares this is equivalent to 1 new share for
approximately every 82.263 shares held prior to the ex-dividend
date of 9 May 2012.
 
The Reference Share Price is the average of the US dollar equivalent of the closing mid price quotation for a BP ordinary share on the London Stock Exchange Daily Official List for the four consecutive dealing days beginning on the ex-dividend date of 9 May 2012. The US dollar equivalent price each day is calculated from the sterling closing mid price using the exchange rate published by the Bank of England at 4pm each day.
 
The 'Reference ADS Price' for the issue of new ADSs under the scrip dividend alternative is:
 
US$ 39.536 for each new ADS.
 
For holders of ADSs this is equivalent to 1 new ADS for approximately every 82.367 ADSs held prior to the ex-dividend date of 9 May 2012.
 
The Reference ADS Price is calculated by multiplying the Reference Share Price by six (as there are six ordinary shares underlying each ADS) and adjusting for the fee payable to the Depositary under the ADS Deposit Agreement ($0.05 per ADS). Previously, stamp duty reserve tax ("SDRT") of 1.5% was deducted from this calculation, but following a recent tax tribunal decision, HM Revenue & Customs will no longer seek to impose 1.5% SDRT on issues of UK shares and securities to non-EU clearance services and depositary receipt systems.
 
Dividends payable in cash in sterling on 27 June 2012 will be converted from US dollars at the average of the market exchange rates for the four dealing days from 7 June 2012 to 12 June 2012. The sterling cash dividend will be announced to the London Stock Exchange on 13 June 2012.
 
The latest date for receipt of elections to participate in the Scrip Dividend Programme for this interim dividend is 6 June 2012. Shareholders must return their mandate form or otherwise input their CREST elections, to be received by BP's Registrars, Equiniti, by 4.30 pm (London time) on 6 June 2012, and ADS holders must return their election form to the Depositary, JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A., by 5.00 pm (New York time) on that date. Elections received after this deadline will apply to subsequent dividends only. Unless revoked by you, your scrip dividend election will apply for all future dividends for which a scrip dividend is offered.
