Dont Be Confused by Engine No. 1s Emails
Vote the Blue Proxy Card Today
We apologize for the multiple emails you have received regarding ExxonMobils Annual Meeting of Shareholders, but we want to make sure your vote is counted correctly. Engine No. 1, a small hedge fund seeking to replace four of ExxonMobils highly skilled and experienced directors, has sent you confusing emails as part of its campaign to gain votes for their own far less qualified board nominees.
Engine No. 1 has not included its name on its emails, so they appear to be coming from ExxonMobil. Their emails also use blue font, the same color we use to represent our BLUE proxy card, causing further confusion.
We are working to correct this issue to ensure that all future communications from Engine No. 1 are clearly identified. We urge you to carefully examine all emails from your broker about the ExxonMobil board election, discard any emails about voting on Engine No. 1s White proxy card and vote using the BLUE PROXY CARD to support ExxonMobils nominees, who are delivering on a clear plan to protect your dividend and drive sustainable shareholder value.
Engine No. 1 is proposing value destructive initiatives that would jeopardize our ability to generate the earnings and cash flow that we need to pay our dividend, invest in future growth and work on technologies that will be important to help tackle climate change.
If you have already voted a White proxy card, you can change your vote by clicking on the Vote Now button on the email containing this letter to vote the BLUE proxy card electronically at www.proxyvote.com. Only your latest dated vote will be counted. If you have questions or need assistance voting your shares, please contact our proxy solicitors:
(800) 322-2885 or (212) 929-5500

VOTE the BLUE proxy card today.
Support your Board by voting the BLUE proxy card electronically (www.proxyvote.com) or signing, dating, and returning a BLUE proxy card. Only your latest dated vote will be counted.
DISCARD the WHITE proxy card.
The Board urges you not to vote the WHITE proxy card sent to you. Voting the WHITE proxy card, even if you withhold on any of the dissident nominees, will revoke any vote you had previously submitted on ExxonMobils BLUE proxy card.
