ADM, there was much focus on how it will extend Wild's reach into the food category. But Mr. Luciano also expressed great interest in what Wild may do for ADM in the beverage segment. "It's a market we've been working in, particularly with our Clarisoy and Fibersol products," he said. "It's why we see this as a perfect combination. "In the U.S., they have a strength in energy drinks. They are also working in areas like flavored teas and flavored waters. Also we see opportunities to work in the areas of milkshakes and smoothies for food service companies." In 2014, Wild's sales are estimated to be $1.36 billion and EBITDA in the mid-teens. Ms. Woertz said their sales reflect regional diversification and "very good" reach into higher growth markets. "We believe this is a great company with a great team and tremendous ability to be a growth engine for ADM," she said.
