ADM Reaches Agreement to Sell Bolivian Oilseeds Operations

Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) announced today that it has reached an agreement to sell its oilseeds operations in Bolivia to Inversiones Piuranas S.A. The sale encompasses ADM’s processing facility in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, as well as nine grain silos and ADM’s Bolivian distribution business.
