Luxembourg, February 11, 2019 - ADECOAGRO S.A. (NYSE: AGRO, Bloomberg: AGRO US, Reuters: AGRO.K) (“Adecoagro” or “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of two milk processing plants and two trademarks (“the Transaction”) from SanCor Cooperativas Unidas Limitadas (“SanCor”).

As described in prior filings, one plant is located in the city of Chivilcoy, Province of Buenos Aires, and is primarily focused on fluid milk production for the domestic market in Argentina. The other plant, located in the city of Morteros, Province of Cordoba, produces dry milk and cheese for the export market. In addition,  the Company acquired “Las 3 Niñas” and “Angelita” trademarks. Both brand names are well recognized in Argentina and represent a solid commercialization vehicle for retail consumer dairy products.

The acquisition will enable the Company with the flexibility to sell into the export and domestic market, based on relative profitability with a view to generate attractive returns. At the same time, it will allow us to leverage and create synergies with our highly efficient free stall dairy production system.
