Per $1,000 principal amount of Securities accepted for purchase and Total Consideration amounts include Early Tender Payments.

 

The reference yield was determined by BofA Securities and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, the lead dealer managers for the tender offers, based on the bid-side price for the applicable U.S.Treasury reference security at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, today, as described in the Offer to Purchase dated September 8, 2020 (as may be supplemented from time to time, the “Offer to Purchase”).

Holders who tendered Securities by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 21, 2020, are eligible to receive the applicable total consideration (which includes the applicable early tender payment set out above). The applicable total consideration was determined as described in the Offer to Purchase based on the present value of future payments on the applicable Securities discounted to the Early Settlement Date at a rate equal to the sum of the yield to maturity for the applicable reference security, calculated by the lead dealer managers based on the bid-side price at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, today, plus the applicable fixed spread, minus accrued interest up to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date, which is currently expected to be September 23, 2020.

It is expected that ADM will purchase up to $664,843,000 aggregate principal amount of the above-listed tendered Securities on the Early Settlement Date, which represents the full amount of the Securities tendered and not withdrawn by the Early Tender Time.

Withdrawal rights for the tender offers expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 21, 2020.

The consummation of the tender offers is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase.

For additional information regarding the terms of the tender offers, please contact: BofA Securities at (980) 387-3907 (collect) or debt_advisory@bofa.com or J.P.
