Re: Supplemental Information Related to Item 3 Advisory Vote to Approve Executive Compensation
In ExxonMobils 2021 Proxy Statement, we summarize the key design features of our compensation program, which ties compensation to long-term shareholder value creation and success in a lower-carbon future, and 2020 pay decisions.
The charts on page 53 compare ExxonMobil CEO compensation versus compensation benchmark companies over a 1-year and 10-year period. 2020 data for compensation benchmark companies have recently become available as they have filed their 2021 proxies. Therefore, these charts have been updated for the most recent time period, as displayed below. This also updates all other references to ExxonMobils rank percentile in the CD&A.
Total Direct Compensation is compensation granted during the year, including salary, current year bonus, and the grant date fair value of equity awards. Realized Pay is compensation actually received by the CEO during the year, excluding any retirement distributions. Unrealized Pay represents the current value not the grant date value used for reporting in the Summary Compensation Table of outstanding unvested cash and stock-based incentive awards as well as the current market value of unexercised in the money stock options granted during the years 2011 through 2020. Award values are based on target levels of formula-based awards and fiscal year-end 2020 stock prices. See page 58 of the CD&A for more detailed definitions of realized and unrealized pay.
In addition, the chart on page 52 that displays Scale of ExxonMobil vs. Benchmark Companies has been updated with 2020 revenue. As described in the 2021 proxy statement, the Compensation Committee considers scale and complexity as relevant factors in assessing the appropriateness of pay levels.
Data represents the fiscal year ending in 2020. Excludes sales-based taxes and intersegment revenues.
Please read this supplemental information together with the more detailed information included in the CD&A, compensation tables, narrative on pages 41 through 68 of ExxonMobils 2021 Proxy Statement before you cast your vote on Management Resolution Item 3 Advisory Vote to Approve Executive Compensation.
