ExxonMobil Corporation Research Report

On December 12, 2013, ExxonMobil Corporation (ExxonMobil) released its Outlook
for Energy: A View to 2040. According to the report, the world will require
all forms of energy over the next quarter century to meet a greater than
one-third increase in demand that will be driven by population growth,
improved living standards and expanded urbanization. Rex W. Tillerson,
Chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil, commented, "Understanding global energy trends
is absolutely critical for effective energy policy. The world depends on safe,
reliable and affordable energy development to support economic growth and our
modern way of life." According to its annual forecast, ExxonMobil projected
that future energy needs - expected to be about 35% higher in 2040 than 2010 -
will be 'supported by more efficient energy-saving practices and technologies,
increased use of less-carbon-intensive fuels' like natural gas, nuclear and
renewables as well as the continued improvement of technology advances to
produce new energy sources. The Full Research Report on Exxon Mobil

Talisman Energy Inc. Research Report

On December 10, 2013, Talisman Energy Inc. (Talisman) announced that two of
its affiliates have reached an agreement to sell their estimated 12% equity
interest in the Ocensa Pipeline in Colombia to an investment group led by
Advent International for a total cash consideration of approximately $595
million. Hal Kvisle, President and CEO of Talisman, commented, "In March, I
set a $2-3 billion, 18-month disposition target for Talisman. In November, we
announced the sale of the majority of our Montney position for CDN$1.5
billion, which when combined with some small Canadian assets and our equity
interest in the Ocensa pipeline, brings our sale proceeds to approximately
$2.2 billion. We will use these to reduce debt and strengthen our balance
sheet, and will continue to progress additional opportunities to unlock value.
These transactions provide strong momentum going into 2014, where we will
continue to focus on our two core regions, our four strategic priorities, and
on creating sustainable shareholder value. Through this transaction, we have
unlocked net value from our portfolio and retained our crude transportation
rights. This enables us to maintain our competitive advantage by transporting
oil from our own operations and generating third party revenue from any
surplus capacity." The Full Research Report on Talisman Energy Inc. -
