USD 7.84 sounds like a fair amount of money. And it is, unless you happen to be the world's largest, privately held oil company, which is the case at ExxonMobil. For the US oil behemoth, the 2016 profit of USD 7.84 (EUR 7.3 billion) presented Tuesday, is most notable for being only half the size of the USD 16.2 billion profit in 2015. Also noteworthy is that the 2015 profit was only half of the USD 32.5 billion earned in 2014.
Whether you consider it a lot of money or not, this is the 2016 result, informs ExxonMobil.
