A Look at ExxonMobil’s Cash Flows

In the first quarter, ExxonMobil (XOM) generated ~$8.5 billion in cash from operations, a 4.0% rise year-over-year. Considering the addition to plant, property, and equipment and the dividend payments, XOM’s cumulative cash outflows amounted to $6.6 billion in the first quarter. This led to a surplus of $1.9 billion (the difference between cash inflows of $8.5 billion and the cash outflows of $6.6 billion), which was used by XOM to repay some portion of the debt.
