NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY Corporate Finance Professor Olubunmi Faleye Equity Research Report John Coogan November 18, 2010

ExxonMobil is a major force in Major Oils, with some 4.2 million boed of oil & gas production, and a global downstream portfolio, with 6.2 million b/d of refining capacity, and a world-scale petrochemicals business. The company has an emphasis on project scale and lifespan, with significan in-house research. As of December 31, 2009, it operated 16,587 gross and 13,737 net operated wells.

Neutral Outlook on ExxonMobile

Cannot recommend XOM BUY for several reasons: All stock buy-out of Houston-based
XTO Entergy Inc. has failed to develop as anticipated and deal structure may be overstating EPS gains to XOM. Although the 13.4x earnings paid for XTO appears accretive in the near-term, vaguaries about cost-reduction strategies and a weak outlook in the natural gas market both call this the future return on the acquition into question.

Natural Gas prices do not appear to be experiencing upward pressure. We believe that while oil prices are under structural upward pressure due to depleting high-return reserves, natural gas prices are not. Addtionally, natural gas supply has consistently reacted to higher prices resulting in preasure towards the marginal cost of supply. Through 2008 and 2009 oil production at Exxon has represented 2/3rds of their total oil and gas production. Trends in both global supply and Exxon strategy, including the XTO deal, point towards equivalent gas production as soon as 2011.

Relative out-performance unlikely given changes within Super Major net income per barrel rankings: XOM recently lost ground to other top producers and is now relatively cheaper than Cheveron. Underperformance in earnings growth and expected negative impacts from the XTO deal make sector out-performance difficult to imagine.

Valuation and Risks, details on page 5: Our DCF-implied target is $78 and our Earnings Multiple methodology yields $75. Downside risks to our neutral rating include political complications abroad, falling demand, the expensive XTO acquisition and potention changes in US tax code including renewable fuel legislation. Upside risks include surprise return on the XTO investment, rising commodity prices and positive developments in chemical production.

operating costs. which takes historical financial metrics and devides each line item by sales.548 398. To calculate the cost of equity we used three approaches. the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM). Cash reserves take years to build (the last time cash dipped below $11 billion was in 2003) so we used a very Corporate Finance 3 . and the Bond Yield + Premium Model (BYP). This discount rate will show what the cash flows are worth today. Taking the weighted average of the cost of equity and cost of debt yields the WACC. Changes in operating capital from year to year affect the net investment in operating capital. Future Cash Flow Projections: Free cash flow quantifies the residual amount of money a company has after accounting for its operations. an appropriate discount rate must be used to accurately consider the time value of money.
