Suncor Energy comments on Canadian Oil Sands Circular

(All dollar amounts referenced are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise specified)

Calgary, Alberta (Oct. 19, 2015) Suncor Energy today commented on the Directors Circular issued by Canadian Oil Sands Limited (COS TSX Symbol COS), which recommends that COS shareholders not tender to Suncors $4.3 billion Offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of COS for a consideration of 0.25 of a Suncor share per COS share.

We encourage Canadian Oil Sands shareholders to determine for themselves whether our Offer is in their best interests, said Steve Williams, Suncors president and chief executive officer. There is nothing in the COS Directors Circular nor in the conference call comments this morning that detract from the strength of our compelling Offer. Our Offer reflects the new business reality, and when proposed, included a substantial price premium of 43% and a dividend increase of 45%. It also represents an opportunity for investment in a financially stronger, more diversified and stable company that has considerable upside potential in a rising price environment, but can also deliver significant value should oil prices stay lower for longer.

Suncor urges COS shareholders to consider the following points as they review the COS Circular.
