On April 27, 2018, Rich Kruger, the Company’s chairman, president and chief executive officer, gave a presentation at the Company’s annual general meeting in Calgary, Alberta (the “Presentation”) that included an update on the Company’s current operations and major projects. The Presentation included information related to the Company’s strategic plans, goals, growth initiatives and outlook, and forecasts for future performance and industry development.

A broadcast of the Presentation will be available online on the Company’s website at April 27, 2018 Annual General Meeting Presentation by Rich Kruger for a period of one year. The slides used in the Presentation are attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report and are incorporated herein by reference.

Statements of future events or conditions in the Presentation, including projections, targets, expectations, estimates, and business plans are forward-looking statements. Actual future financial and operating results, including demand growth and energy source mix; production growth and mix; project plans, dates, costs and capacities; production rates; production life and resource recoveries; cost savings; product sales; financing sources; and capital and environmental expenditures could differ materially depending on a number of factors, such as changes in the supply of and demand for crude oil, natural gas, and petroleum and petrochemical products and resulting price and margin impacts; transportation for accessing markets; political or regulatory events, including changes in law or government policy, applicable royalty rates and tax laws; the receipt, in a timely manner, of regulatory and third-party approvals; third party opposition to operations and projects; environmental risks inherent in oil and gas exploration and production activities; environmental regulation, including climate change and greenhouse gas restrictions; currency exchange rates; availability and allocation of capital; availability and performance of third party service providers; unanticipated operational disruptions; management effectiveness; commercial negotiations; project management and schedules; response to unexpected technological developments; operational hazards and risks; disaster response preparedness; the ability to develop or acquire additional reserves; and other factors discussed in Item 1A of the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (SEC File No. 0-12014) and in the management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations contained in Item 7. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve a number of risks and uncertainties, some that are similar to other oil and gas companies and some that are unique to the Company. The Company’s actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by its forward-looking statements and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on them. The Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained herein, except as required by applicable law.

The Company’s Form 10-K is available on its website at www.imperialoil.ca. You can also obtain this form from the SEC by calling 1-800-SEC-0330 or by logging on to their website at www.sec.gov.

The Presentation may contain references to non-proved resources and production outlooks based on non-proved resources that the SEC’s rules prohibit the Company from including in its filings with the SEC. U.S. investors are urged to consider closely the disclosures in the Company’s Form 10-K.
