A squashed deal defined 2013 for food processor Archer Daniels Midland. In November, Australian regulators blocked the firm’s proposed $3.4 billion acquisition of GrainCorp, an Aussie agricultural giant, on grounds that it was against the nation’s interest to allow a foreign takeover. Earnings were also slightly down for ADM; the firm ended the year with $1.34 billion in earnings for the year, down from $1.38 billion for 2012.
