Business Strategy and Outlook

| Dave Meats |

Marathon has comprehensively reshuffled its portfolio in the past 10 years, discarding most of the conventional projects it historically focused on and doubling down on U.S. shale. The international assets it has retained, in Equatorial Guinea, will be harvested for cash flows that can be redeployed in the U.S. or returned to shareholders.
