Dear Shareholder,

We are pleased to provide you with these proxy materials, including the 2016 Proxy Statement, the 2015 Summary Annual Report, and the 2016 Executive Compensation Overview. We have also included financial information in the 2015 Financial Statement and Supplemental Information. Along with these publications, other important information about your Company, including the Corporate Citizenship Report and the annual Outlook for Energy, may be found at

The annual shareholders meeting and related voting process are important ways for shareholders to stay informed about your Company and to voice your opinions. Every year, shareholders are asked to vote on a number of important management and shareholder proposals that can affect your Company. Among the proposals raised this year, we ask that you consider in particular voting Item 7 – a request for a Proxy Access Bylaw. We believe the Proxy Access Bylaw proposal introduces potential risk to our Company, including to the long-proven and successful Board nomination and election process. It bypasses the role served by the Board’s independent nominating committee and circumvents the Company’s published selection criteria that we believe ensure that the Company attracts the most qualified Board candidates. The proposal can also promote special interest nominees, which can undermine the Board’s effort to represent the general interest of all shareholders.

Whether you own one share or many, the input of all shareholders is important and we encourage you to exercise your right to vote. For those who plan on joining us at the annual shareholders meeting in May, we look forward to seeing you there. For those who are unable to attend in person, there will be a webcast available so that you can hear the proceedings electronically. For all our valued shareholders, we encourage you to read the proxy materials carefully and to make sure your voices are heard through your votes.

Thank you for your support and interest in ExxonMobil. We remain resolute in our mission to create superior long-term shareholder value.

Yes, you can easily request a paper copy at no cost. Refer to the “Before You Vote” section of the Notice for further instructions.



   Can I request to receive my proxy materials for  future meetings by e-mailing rather than receive a Notice?  



Yes, you may request to receive proxy materials for all future meetings by e-mail. To do  so, go to
or and follow the electronic delivery enrollment instructions.



   How can I vote my shares?
