RAISING THE STAKES: Archer Daniels Midland Co. is increasing its buyout offer for GrainCorp by almost 4 percent and disclosed on Monday that it has already added to its stake in the Australian grain handler.

THE FALLOUT: Under the revised proposal, it would cost ADM about $2.33 billion to buy the rest of GrainCorp.

THE BACKGROUND: ADM said Monday that it owns 19.9 percent of GrainCorp Ltd., up from 14.9 percent when it made its initial acquisition bid in October.
