(e) On November 23, 2021, the Compensation Committee of Exxon Mobil Corporation (the "Corporation" or "ExxonMobil") established a total ceiling of $145 million in respect of 2021 to be available for grant under the Corporation's Short Term Incentive Program. Bonuses, paid in full in year of grant, were awarded to certain officers as follows:
|D. W. Woods||$3,142,000|
|K. A. Mikells||$1,932,000|
|A. P. Swiger||$1,345,000|
|N. A. Chapman||$1,932,000|
|J. P. Williams, Jr.||$1,932,000|
Under the terms of the Short Term Incentive Program, in the event of a material negative restatement of ExxonMobil’s reported financial or operating results, bonus awards paid on the basis of such results are subject to recoupment.
The cumulative EPS threshold to reach full payout of the 2018 and 2019 Earnings Bonus Units (EBU) remains at $6.50 per share. The Committee decided to exclude from the EPS calculation a non-cash U.S. Upstream impairment reported in 4Q 2020. The maximum settlement value of previously granted EBU awards remains unchanged, including the maximum values of awards granted to certain officers as reflected in the applicable ExxonMobil Proxy Statements for the respective years and set forth below:
|D. W. Woods||$1,232,000||$1,108,000||$0|
|A. P. Swiger||$924,000||$739,000||$0|
|N. A. Chapman||$638,000||$635,000||$0|
|J. P. Williams, Jr.||$638,000||$615,500||$0|
(*) The 2020 bonus program was suspended in response to market conditions at the time. This resulted in a $0 bonus award (cash and EBU) grant in 2020.
Prior to settlement, EBU awards remain subject to forfeiture in case of detrimental activity on the part of the executive.
The form of amendment of the 2018 and 2019 EBU awards is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
Effective January 1, 2022, the annual salary of N. A. Chapman, Senior Vice President, will increase to $1,100,000. This represents an increase of 15% and is the result of the Committee’s assessment of performance and relative position with external benchmarking companies.
All ExxonMobil executive officers are "at will" employees of the Corporation and do not have employment contracts.

Amendment effective November 23, 2021
Earnings Bonus Unit Awards effective November 28, 2018

This Amendment (“Amendment”) is made in Dallas County, Texas by Exxon Mobil Corporation (the “Corporation”) effective November 23, 2021 (the “Effective Date”) with respect to the Earnings Bonus Unit Awards previously granted by the Corporation effective November 28, 2018 (the “2018 Awards”) and the Earnings Bonus Unit Awards previously granted by the Corporation effective November 26, 2019 (the “2019 Awards”) (the 2018 Awards and the 2019 Awards being collectively referred to herein as the “Awards”). Terms used but not otherwise defined in or amended by this Amendment shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the instruments evidencing the applicable Awards and in the Corporation’s Short Term Incentive Program.
Each Award outstanding on the Effective Date is hereby amended so that, for purposes of Section 1 and Section 2 of the instruments evidencing such Award, the Corporation’s cumulative earnings per common share (assuming dilution) for the fourth quarter of 2020 shall be adjusted to ($0.77) per share in order to exclude a non-cash U.S. Upstream impairment reported in that quarter. The cumulative adjusted EPS threshold to reach full payout remains at $6.50 per share.
Except as amended hereby, all other terms and provisions of the Awards shall remain in effect in accordance with the instruments evidencing such Awards, including, without limitation, (i) provisions regarding the determination of the Corporation’s earnings per common share with respect to each quarter other than the fourth calendar quarter of 2020, and (ii) provisions regarding annulment.
