Murphy Oil Holds Annual Shareholders' Meeting

EL DORADO, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 13, 2009-- Murphy Oil Corporation (NYSE:MUR) held its annual shareholders’ meeting in El Dorado, Arkansas with Chairman William C. Nolan Jr. presiding. At this meeting, David M. Wood, President and Chief Executive Officer, presented a review of the Company’s operations, followed by a period of questions from those in attendance. During the meeting, shareholders elected all nominated directors and approved the Audit Committee’s appointment of KPMG LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for 2009. No representative of the proponent of a shareholder proposal seeking amendments to the Company's equal employment opportunity policy was present at the meeting. Accordingly, no formal vote was taken on the matter; nevertheless, the Company tabulated the votes cast in pre-meeting proxy voting which indicated that the proposal would not have carried had it been presented at the meeting.
