GrainCorp Rejects ADM’s Offer

Australian company GrainCorp has rejected a US$2.7 billion offer from U.S.-based Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) on the heels of releasing its annual profit statement and lifting its share dividend.

A spokesperson for ADM, Jackie Anderson, said the company’s bid of AUS$11.75 remained “an attractive proposal.”
