Corn wet milling is a natural next step for Bunge
    The acquisition of Corn Products is consistent with Bunge’s growth strategy of entering complementary value chains in which they can leverage their expertise and operations to succeed
Corn Products and Bunge and are a good fit—they complement each other commercially, geographically and operationally
    The transaction will create a stronger company that offers customers a broader product portfolio and better customer service
    The companies service some common customer groups, including food processing, bakery, animal feed and others
    The combined company will have additional opportunity for growth in important geographies
    Core geographies where both companies have significant operations, such as North America, Brazil and Argentina
    And other geographies where the companies can leverage each other’s operations to enter or expand (Corn Products in India, China and Southeast Asia; Bunge in Mexico, South America and Africa)
    Opportunities will exist to generate greater value from existing operations. Specifically:
    Improved logistics, risk management
    Enhanced product development and innovation
    Shared distribution
No significant changes in operations are anticipated
    We understand Bunge’s goal to be to create a larger, stronger and more diverse company with more opportunities for the enterprise and its employees
    Some synergies in administrative functions are anticipated, but no closures of industrial operations are expected as a direct result of the combination
    Corn Products will retain operational HQ in Chicago area and keep its name
Stay focused on existing goals, customers and operations
