In 2010, the ADM team delivered another good year. Our 29,000 employees around the world worked hard each day to achieve the strong financial results that ensure we are able to continue serving vital global needs for food and energy. And, because the need for our food, feed, energy and industrial products is so vital, and will grow with the growing world population, we worked equally hard to advance our profitable growth strategy.
Inspired by our purpose of serving vital needs, our team once again leveraged ADM’s acumen and global asset network to maximize value, execute strategic acquisitions and complete important capital projects.
And as we look ahead, we commit to growing value for ADM stockholders. Indeed, we have confirmed that commitment in our Vision for our company: To be the most admired global agribusiness. Creating value. Growing responsibly. Serving vital needs. Clearly, the creation of value for shareholders leads our aspirations for the company we are…and the company we intend to be.
