IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- XTO Energy Inc. ("XTO"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation ("ExxonMobil") (NYSE: XOM), announced today that the previously announced cash tender offers (each, a "Change of Control Offer") for any and all of its outstanding debt securities in the series specified in the table below (the "Securities") expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 6, 2010. Withdrawal rights with respect to such Change of Control Offers expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 10, 2010. On August 13, 2010, in accordance with the indentures governing the Securities, XTO accepted for purchase all of the Securities which were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Change of Control Offers, representing a total aggregate principal amount of $16,835,000. Set forth in the table below is the aggregate principal amount of Securities of each series purchased pursuant to the relevant Change of Control Offer:
Title of Securities CUSIP No. Aggregate Principal Amount Accepted for Purchase 71/2% Senior Notes Due 2012 98385XAA4 $3,105,000 61/4% Senior Notes Due 2013 98385XAC0 $13,730,000
The purchase price paid for Securities accepted for purchase pursuant to each Change of Control Offer was 101% of the principal amount of such Securities, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, August 13, 2010. Payment of such purchase price was made to The Depository Trust Company, as registered holder of the Securities, earlier today.

The merger by which XTO became a wholly owned subsidiary of ExxonMobil, which was completed on June 25, 2010, constituted a change of control of XTO under such indentures.
The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. served as the Depositary for the Change of Control Offers.
