TILLERSON COMMENTED: “ExxonMobil’s third quarter results reflect our continued progress across a diverse set of profitable growth opportunities, which positions us well to deliver shareholder value. We maintain a long-term perspective on our business with a relentless focus on operational excellence and disciplined investing. “Third quarter earnings were $7.9billion, down 18% from the third quarter of 2012. Production of oil and natural gas increased from a year earlier as new projects were brought on line and maintenance-related downtime decreased. Significantly weaker refining margins as a result of increased industry capacity negatively impacted ExxonMobil’s Downstream earnings. “Capital and exploration expenditures were $10.5billion in the third quarter and $32.6billion for the first nine months of 2013, in line with anticipated spending plans. “The Corporation distributed $5.8billion to shareholders in the third quarter through dividends and share purchases to reduce shares outstanding.” THIRD QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS *Earnings of $7,870million decreased $1,700million or 18% from the third quarter of 2012. *Earnings per share (assuming dilution) were $1.79, a decrease of 14% from the third quarter of 2012. *Capital and exploration expenditures were $10.5billion, up 15% from the third quarter of 2012, in line with anticipated spending plans. *Oil-equivalent production increased 1.5% from the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the impacts of entitlement volumes, OPEC quota effects and divestments, production increased 2.7%, with liquids volumes up 5.3%. *Cash flow from operations and asset sales was $13.6billion, including proceeds associated with asset sales of $0.2billion. *Share purchases to reduce shares outstanding were $3billion. *Dividends per share of $0.63 increased 11% compared to the third quarter of 2012. *The Esso Australia Pty Ltd operated Kipper Tuna Turrum project commenced natural gas production from the Tuna field and oil production from the Turrum field. The project is the largest domestic oil and gas development on Australia’s eastern seaboard and will help secure Australia’s energy future. *As announced on August 8, 2013, Imperial Oil Limited and ExxonMobil Canada Ltd. have acquired ConocoPhillips’ interest in the Clyden oil sands lease, approximately 95 miles south of Fort McMurray, Alberta. The Clyden lease contains 226,000 gross acres and is a high-quality addition to Imperial’s portfolio of oil sands in-situ opportunities. Third Quarter 2013 vs. Third Quarter 2012 Upstream earnings were $6,713million in the third quarter of 2013, up $740million from the third quarter of 2012. Higher liquids and natural gas realizations increased earnings by $440million. Production volume and mix effects increased earnings by $20million. All other items, including favorable tax and foreign exchange impacts, partly offset by higher operating expenses, increased earnings by $280million. On an oil-equivalent basis, production increased 1.5% from the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the impacts of entitlement volumes, OPEC quota effects and divestments, production increased 2.7%. Liquids production totaled 2,199kbd (thousands of barrels per day), up 83kbd from the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the impacts of entitlement volumes, OPEC quota effects and divestments, liquids production was up 5.3%, as lower downtime and project ramp-up in Canada and Nigeria were partially offset by field decline. Third quarter natural gas production was 10,914mcfd (millions of cubic feet per day), down 147mcfd from 2012. Excluding the impacts of entitlement volumes and divestments, natural gas production was down 0.3%, as field decline was mostly offset by lower downtime and project ramp-up. Earnings from U.S. Upstream operations were $1,050million, $417million higher than the third quarter of 2012. Non-U.S. Upstream earnings were $5,663million, up $323million from the prior year. Downstream earnings were $592million, down $2,598million from the third quarter of 2012. Weaker margins, mainly in refining, decreased earnings by $2.4billion. Volume and mix effects increased earnings by $150million. All other items, including lower gains on asset sales and foreign exchange impacts, decreased earnings by $380million. Petroleum product sales of 6,031kbd were 74kbd lower than last year's third quarter reflecting divestment-related impacts. Earnings from the U.S. Downstream were $315million, down $1,126million from the third quarter of 2012. Non-U.S. Downstream earnings of $277million were $1,472million lower than last year. Chemical earnings of $1,025million were $235million higher than the third quarter of 2012 due primarily to higher commodity margins. Third quarter prime product sales of 6,245kt (thousands of metric tons) were 298kt higher than last year's third quarter. Corporate and financing expenses were $460million for the third quarter of 2013, up $77million from the third quarter of 2012, reflecting unfavorable tax impacts. During the third quarter of 2013, Exxon Mobil Corporation purchased 34million shares of its common stock for the treasury to reduce the number of shares outstanding at a cost of $3.0billion. Share purchases to reduce shares outstanding are currently anticipated to equal $3billion in the fourth quarter of 2013. Purchases may be made in both the open market and through negotiated transactions, and may be increased, decreased or discontinued at any time without prior notice. First Nine Months 2013 vs. First Nine Months 2012 Earnings of $24,230million decreased $10,700million from 2012. Earnings per share decreased 27% to $5.46. FIRST NINE MONTHS HIGHLIGHTS *Earnings were $24,230million, down $10,700million or 31% from the first nine months of 2012. Lower net gains from divestments impacted earnings by $9.0billion. *Earnings per share decreased 27% to $5.46. Excluding net gains from divestments, earnings per share decreased 2%. *Oil-equivalent production was down 1.4% from 2012.

Upstream earnings for the first nine months of 2013 were $20,055million, down $2,078million from the first nine months of 2012. Higher gas realizations, partially offset by lower liquids realizations, increased earnings by $350million. Lower sales volumes decreased earnings by $400million. All other items, including lower net gains from asset sales, mainly in Angola, and higher expenses, reduced earnings by $2.0billion. On an oil-equivalent basis, production was down 1.4% compared to the same period in 2012. Excluding the impacts of entitlement volumes, OPEC quota effects and divestments, production was up 0.4%. Liquids production of 2,192kbd increased 13kbd compared with 2012. Excluding the impacts of entitlement volumes, OPEC quota effects and divestments, liquids production was up 1.3%, as project ramp-up and lower downtime were partially offset by field decline. Natural gas production of 11,818mcfd decreased 431mcfd from 2012. Excluding the impacts of entitlement volumes and divestments, natural gas production was down 0.8%, as field decline was partially offset by lower downtime, higher demand, and project ramp-up. Earnings from U.S. Upstream operations for 2013 were $3,005million, up $684million from 2012. Earnings outside the U.S. were $17,050million, down $2,762million from the prior year. Downstream earnings of $2,533million decreased $8,889million from 2012 driven by the absence of the $5.3billion gain associated with the Japan restructuring. Lower margins, mainly refining, decreased earnings by $2.2billion. Volume and mix effects decreased earnings by $430million. All other items, including higher operating expenses, unfavorable foreign exchange impacts, and lower divestments, decreased earnings by $970million. Petroleum product sales of 5,851kbd decreased 346kbd from 2012. U.S. Downstream earnings were $1,602million, down $1,276million from 2012. Non-U.S. Downstream earnings were $931million, a decrease of $7,613million from last year. Chemical earnings of $2,918million were $22million lower than 2012. The absence of the gain associated with the Japan restructuring decreased earnings by $630million. Higher margins increased earnings by $520million, while volume and mix effects increased earnings by $80million. All other items increased earnings by $10million. Prime product sales of 17,986kt were down 270kt from 2012. Corporate and financing expenses were $1,276million in the first nine months of 2013, down $289million from 2012, as favorable tax impacts were partially offset by the absence of the Japan restructuring gain.

Cautionary statement Statements relating to future plans, projections, events or conditions are forward-looking statements. Actual results, including project plans, costs, timing, and capacities; capital and exploration expenditures; resource recoveries; and share purchase levels, could differ materially due to factors including: changes in oil or gas prices or other market or economic conditions affecting the oil and gas industry, including the scope and duration of economic recessions; the outcome of exploration and development efforts; changes in law or government regulation, including tax and environmental requirements; the outcome of commercial negotiations; changes in technical or operating conditions; and other factors discussed under the heading "Factors Affecting Future Results" in the “Investors” section of our website and in Item 1A of ExxonMobil's 2012 Form 10-K. We assume no duty to update these statements as of any future date. Frequently used terms This press release includes cash flow from operations and asset sales, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Because of the regular nature of our asset management and divestment program, we believe it is useful for investors to consider proceeds associated with the sales of subsidiaries, property, plant and equipment, and sales and returns of investments together with cash provided by operating activities when evaluating cash available for investment in the business and financing activities. A reconciliation to net cash provided by operating activities is shown in Attachment II. References to quantities of oil or natural gas may include amounts that we believe will ultimately be produced, but that are not yet classified as “proved reserves” under SEC definitions. Further information on ExxonMobil's frequently used financial and operating measures and other terms is contained under the heading "Frequently Used Terms" available through the “Investors” section of our website at exxonmobil.com. Reference to Earnings References to corporate earnings mean net income attributable to ExxonMobil (U.S. GAAP) from the consolidated income statement. Unless otherwise indicated, references to earnings, Upstream, Downstream, Chemical and Corporate and Financing segment earnings, and earnings per share are ExxonMobil's share after excluding amounts attributable to noncontrolling interests. The term “project” as used in this release can refer to a variety of different activities and does not necessarily have the same meaning as in any government payment transparency reports.
