ExxonMobil ( XOM) reported second-quarter earnings that fell short of Wall Street's estimates as lower prices and thinner margins dragged down the company's results. The company said earnings dropped to $2.64 billion, or 39 cents a share, in the latest second quarter, from $4.46 billion, or 65 cents a share, in the same period a year ago. Excluding certain items, the company earned $2.67 million. Analysts polled by First Call were expecting earnings of 46 cents a share in the quarter. Revenue fell to $50.9 billion from $56.2 billion in 2001. Exxon attributed the lower results to soft conditions in most of its divisions, including lower prices for crude oil and natural gas, weaker refining margins and the impact of the strong dollar. Additionally, the company said it plans to certify the results, as the Securities and Exchange Commission is requiring of about 950 large companies by Aug. 14, later Thursday. Following the quarterly report, shares of Exxon Mobil were falling $1.18, or 3%, to $35.58 on the New York Stock Exchange.
