Exhibit 99.1

Imperial announces completion of its $1.5 billion substantial issuer bid

Calgary, AB – December 13, 2023 – Imperial Oil Limited (TSE: IMO, NYSE American: IMO) announced today that it has taken up and paid for 19,108,280 common shares (“Shares”) at a price of $78.50 per Share (the “Purchase Price”) under Imperial’s offer (the “Offer”) to purchase for cancellation up to $1.5 billion of its Shares. All amounts are in Canadian dollars.

The Shares purchased represent an aggregate purchase of $1.5 billion and 3.4 percent of the total number of Imperial’s issued and outstanding Shares as of the close of business on October 30, 2023. Immediately following completion of the Offer, Imperial has 535,836,803 Shares issued and outstanding.

A total of 5,784,055 Shares were taken up and purchased pursuant to auction tenders at or below the Purchase Price and pursuant to purchase price tenders. Since the Offer was oversubscribed, shareholders who made auction tenders at or below the Purchase Price and shareholders who made, or were deemed to have made, purchase price tenders had approximately 20 percent of their tendered Shares taken up by Imperial (other than “odd lot” tenders, which were not subject to proration). 13,324,225 Shares were taken up and purchased pursuant to proportionate tenders.

Exxon Mobil Corporation (“ExxonMobil”), Imperial’s majority shareholder, made a proportionate tender under the Offer in order to maintain its proportionate Share ownership at approximately 69.6 percent, resulting in 13,299,349 Shares being taken up pursuant to the Offer. Immediately following completion of the Offer, ExxonMobil holds 372,942,029 Shares.

Imperial has accepted the Shares tendered for purchase and has made payment for the Shares by delivering the aggregate purchase price to Computershare Investor Services Inc., the depositary for the Offer (the “Depositary”). Payment and settlement with shareholders will be effected by the Depositary on or about December 19, 2023, all in accordance with the Offer and applicable law. Any Shares not purchased, including such Shares not purchased as a result of proration or Shares tendered pursuant to auction tenders at prices higher than the Purchase Price or invalidly tendered, will be returned to shareholders as soon as practicable.

To assist shareholders in determining the tax consequences of the Offer, Imperial estimates that a deemed dividend in the amount of $76.75 per Share was triggered on the repurchase of each Share, based on the estimated paid-up capital of $1.75 per Share at December 8, 2023. The dividend deemed to have been paid by Imperial to Canadian resident persons is designated as an “eligible dividend” for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and any corresponding provincial and territorial tax legislation.

For the purposes of subsection 191(4) of the Income Tax Act (Canada), the “specified amount” in respect of each Share is $75.32.

Shareholders should consult with their own tax advisors with respect to the income tax consequences of the disposition of their Shares under the Offer.


After more than a century, Imperial continues to be an industry leader in applying technology and innovation to responsibly develop Canada’s energy resources. As Canada’s largest petroleum refiner, a major producer of crude oil, a key petrochemical producer and a leading fuels marketer from coast to coast, our company remains committed to high standards across all areas of our business.
