SAN FRANCISCO – April 26, 2021 – Engine No. 1, which has nominated four highly qualified, independent director candidates to the Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE: XOM) (“ExxonMobil” or the “Company”) Board of Directors (the “Board”), today released an in-depth presentation to ExxonMobil shareholders detailing the need for change at ExxonMobil to protect and enhance long-term shareholder value in a changing industry and world. Engine No. 1 encourages ExxonMobil shareholders to review the facts set forth in its presentation so they can make an informed decision at the Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting regarding the future of the Company and their investment.

Key issues under the current Board examined in the presentation include:
- Issue #1: Failure to Position ExxonMobil for Long-Term Value Creation
- Issue #2: Rhetoric Does Not Address Long-Term Business Risk from Emissions
- Issue #3: Lack of Capital Allocation Discipline
- Issue #4: Little Reason to Trust Newfound Spending Discipline
