ExxonMobil Shareholders: Vote the Blue Proxy Card Today
ExxonMobil’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, is only weeks away. Shareholders face an important decision.
Your board and management team are committed to growing shareholder value, meeting the world’s energy demands and pursuing the right, technology-driven strategy to succeed through the transition to a lower-carbon energy future. Our strong first quarter 2021 results further demonstrate that our plans are delivering shareholder value: ExxonMobil generated $9.3 billion in cash flow from operating activities that fully funded your dividend, capital expenditures, and drove over $4 billion of debt reduction.
A months-old hedge fund, Engine No. 1, wants to elect four dissident directors to your Company’s board and pursue an uninformed and vague plan – which we believe will jeopardize our future and your dividend. Don’t give them your vote!
VOTE FOR the ExxonMobil director candidates on the BLUE PROXY CARD today.
Engine No. 1 Is Attempting to Mislead You with False Claims
Below are just few examples:
Fact     Engine No. 1 False Claim
ExxonMobil has outperformed its peer average ExxonMobil’s TSR has with 52% Total Shareholder Return (TSR) over the     underperformed over any
past year, continuing its outperformance over the     relevant time period
6-month, 1-year, 2-year and 3-year periods1    
ExxonMobil’s Return on Capital Employed (ROCE), a ExxonMobil returns on oil and
key performance measure, has outperformed peer     gas projects are underperforming
average by 110 basis points over the past 5 years    
About 90% of ExxonMobil’s cumulative 2021-2025 ExxonMobil has overspent,
Upstream resource investments generate greater     resulting in high break-even
than 10% rates of return at $35/bbl Brent or less, a     prices on projects

Fact     Engine No. 1 False Claim
ExxonMobil achieved 2020 emission reduction
goals and announced 2025 reduction plans, in line     ExxonMobil is not aligned
with goals of the Paris Agreement3, which we have     with the Paris Agreement
supported since its inception    
ExxonMobil is the global leader in carbon capture,
accounting for approximately 40% of all human-     ExxonMobil’s carbon capture

about 2 billion trees4    
ExxonMobil’s Board Has the Right Skills and Experience. Engine No. 1’s Nominees Do Not!
Since 2017, we have added six highly qualified independent directors to ensure our board continues to have the expertise it needs, including four recently appointed independent directors in just over a year – Joseph Hooley, Wan Zulkiflee, Michael Angelakis and Jeffrey Ubben. These directors bring valuable expertise in capital allocation across industries, complex corporate transitions, the energy industry, investor perspectives, Asia-Pacific markets and environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices. Engine No. 1’s nominees do not have top leadership experience at companies remotely close to the size, scope and global scale of ExxonMobil. Based on Engine No. 1’s false and misleading statements, which also includes using outdated data on energy production, and lack of ideas to create future value, we strongly believe their four nominees, if elected, pose a clear risk to our future and your dividend. We believe they would jeopardize the superior returns we have delivered and our plans to progress advantaged opportunities that will improve long-term performance and increase shareholder value.

ExxonMobil-operated emissions, reductions, and avoidance performance data are based on a combination of measured and estimated data using reasonable efforts and collection methods. Calculations are based on industry standards and best practices, including guidance from the American Petroleum Institute (API) and IPIECA. There is uncertainty associated with the emissions, reductions, and avoidance performance data due to variation in the processes and operations, availability of sufficient data, quality of those data, and methodology used for measurement and estimation. Changes to the performance data may be reported as part of our annual publication as new or updated data and/or emission methodologies become available. Emissions, reductions, and avoidance estimates from non-ExxonMobil operated facilities are included in the equity data and similarly may be updated as part of our annual publication. The data includes XTO Energy performance beginning in 2011. ExxonMobil works with industry, including API and IPIECA, to improve emission factors and methodologies.

The term “project” as used in this letter can refer to a variety of different activities and does not necessarily have the same meaning as in any government payment transparency reports.
