The Company received the notice required by Section 101(i)(2)(E) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 on November 10, 2017, which indicated that ESIP participants will not be able to direct or diversify investments in their individual ESIP accounts, including transactions in Chevron common stock in the Chevron Stock Fund, obtain a loan or receive a distribution from the ESIP during the Blackout Period.
During the Blackout Period, and for a period of two years after the end date thereof, a security holder or other interested person may obtain, without charge, information regarding the Blackout Period, including the actual beginning and end dates of the Blackout Period. This information is available by contacting Mary A. Francis, the Company’s Corporate Secretary and Chief Governance Officer, at 6001 Bollinger Canyon Road, San Ramon, CA 94583, or via telephone at (925) 842-1000.
