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.
