ADM completes sale of Brazilian sugarcane ethanol operations

By Archer Daniels Midland Co. | May 26, 2016

Archer Daniels Midland Co. recently announced that it had completed the sale of its sugarcane ethanol operations in Limeira do Oeste, in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais.

“ADM’s Corn business is delivering on its strategy of diversifying our portfolio and expanding our global footprint, while addressing underperforming businesses,” said Chris Cuddy, president of ADM’s corn processing business unit. “Last November, we completed our purchase of former Eaststarch assets in Europe. Earlier this year, we announced the purchase of a sweetener facility in Morocco. And now, we’ve completed the sale of our sugarcane ethanol operations in Brazil, which we determined were unlikely to meet our long-term returns objectives. We are continuing to take strategic action to drive results and deliver healthy returns for our shareholders.”
