According to information provided by D.F. King & Co., Inc., the exchange agent for the Exchange Offers, $567,883,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Old Debentures were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Exchange Offers (the “Tendered Debentures”). The table below indicates the principal amount of each series of Old Debentures outstanding at the commencement of the Exchange Offers and the principal amount of each series of Old Debentures validly tendered and not validly withdrawn as of the Expiration Date.

The aggregate principal amount of the Tendered Debentures was in excess of $540,000,000, the maximum amount of Old Debentures to be accepted for exchange pursuant to the Offering Memorandum. Instead of accepting the Tendered Debentures on a prorated basis, ADM has accepted additional Tendered Debentures for exchange pursuant to ADM’s right under federal securities laws to accept up to an additional 2% of the outstanding debentures subject to the Exchange Offers without extending the Exchange Offers. Accordingly, all of the Tendered Debentures have been accepted for exchange. The settlement date for the Tendered Debentures is expected to be October 16, 2012.
