Tillerson owned 600,000 shares outright at the time of his nomination. In his ethics plan, Tillerson said he would be divested of them within 90 days.
On Tuesday, a State Department spokesman said Tillerson remained committed to fully divesting of the stock by May 2.
“He’s committed to federal ethics rules and he’s continuing to carry out and meet the terms of this agreement,” acting deputy spokesperson Mark Toner told reporters.
But the State Department declined to tell BuzzFeed News how many of those shares — if any — had been sold at the time of Trump’s ExxonMobil promotion. If Tillerson retained all of the 600,000 shares, they would have on Monday been worth $49.7 million.
