The Foundation encourages all institutional investors, i.e. those shareholders who have purchased BP common stock between January 16, 2007 and July 15, 2010 ("Relevant Period"), on any non-U.S. stock exchange, to join and support the Foundation as a Participant. Nominee shareholders and custodians can also act on behalf of their clients at this stage and collective Participation Agreements are accepted.

There are no costs or risks involved with participating in the Foundation. Moreover, the names of those participating do not become public before any settlement is declared final, and none of the participants become a party to any litigation. All costs and risks are borne by the Foundation, which is acting in its own name but for the interests of its members. Only if a sufficient amount of shares/investors participate in the Foundation will it be able to enter into a collective class-wide settlement under Dutch law (WCAM) for the benefit of all Non-U.S. Investors.
