By adopting a global expansion strategy, SNC was able continue to grow its revenues without tying too much cash up in inventory. Although, the FCF at the beginning of this phase was negative, it was made up over the remainder of phase 3. This phase resulted in an additional value creation of $715,000, but also resulted in a cash surplus of $740,000 at the end of 2021.

In the financial world, one of the primary methods of doing so is to over-leverage the business. Companies will continue to borrow money to grow their businesses expecting that if they are in a liquidity bind, the government will come in to save them. Another type of risky business behavior is failing to oversee or properly assess business risks. The moral hazard of too big to fail institutions also applies to creditors.
This is the very notion that dictates budgetary control practices via the medium of Capital Markets. Asset prices have become so sensitive to information and inferences based off policies and budgets that companies who took part in leveraged growth have to choose between honest growth where budgetary control is being used as intended and face the probability that their market capitalization will decimate, or keep the dream alive a little longer and use budgetary control as a communicative tool to paint a rosy facade. Sadly, the latter is the case because there is a vicious feedback loop centred around appeasement for profitability via communicative inference that stems from budgetary control.

Conclusion Exxon Mobil is being cautious and opportunistic at the same time. On one hand, the company is reducing costs across the board, while on the other it is also focusing on areas that could deliver growth.

So, according to me, it makes sense to continue holding shares of Exxon Mobil from a long-term
