    Reading Time: 2 minutes

    NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hess Corporation (NYSE: HES) (“Hess“) announced today that
    it has applied to the Ontario Securities Commission (the “OSC“)
    to cease to be a reporting issuer in Ontario (the “Order“).
    Hess has not been listed on a Canadian stock exchange for twenty years,
    and is not a reporting issuer in any other Canadian jurisdiction.

    If the OSC grants the Order, Hess will cease to be a reporting issuer in
    Canada but will continue to file all financial statements and other
    continuous disclosure materials that it is required to file in
    accordance with applicable United States’ securities laws and the rules
    of the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE“). As a result of
    Hess ceasing to be a reporting issuer, some of Hess’s outstanding
    securities may be subject to resale restrictions within Canada under
    applicable Canadian securities laws.

    All of Hess’s continuous disclosure documents are publicly available
    from the Securities and Exchange Commission at www.sec.gov
    and Hess’s Canadian securityholders will continue to receive copies of
    any continuous disclosure documents that Hess is required to deliver to
    securityholders in the United States, in the same manner and at the same
    time as is required under applicable United States’ securities laws and
    the rules of the NYSE.
