INTRODUCTION
Who is Ebro?
Ebro is an international brand-based food group with a market capitalization of €2.26 billion, turnover of €1.75 billion
and net profit of €176.4 m at the end of 2009.
Over the last ten years we have made several changes, transforming our company from a sugar company in 2000 (with
a financial participation in Herba since 1989) to our present structure:
In 2000, we merged with Puleva (branded dairy leader in Spain).
In 2001, we fully incorporated Herba (European rice leader).
Between 2001 and 2004 we bought up 7 small and medium-sized leading branded rice companies in Europe.
In 2004, we acquired Riviana (branded rice leader in USA).
In 2005, we acquired Panzani (branded rice and pasta leader in France).
In 2006, we acquired New World Pasta and Minute Rice (leading branded pasta and rice companies in USA
and Canada).
In 2007, we acquired Birkel (leading branded pasta company in Germany).
In 2009, we divested our Sugar Division.
In 2010, we divested Puleva.
In this period we have invested €1.7 billion, made divestments of €1.87 billon, with no capital increase and maintaining a
healthy pay out for our shareholders. Nowadays, after the sale of Puleva, we are debt free.
Ebro Nowadays
We are world leaders in the branded rice sector and the second branded pasta manufacturer worldwide.
Ebro subsidiaries are distributed over 23 countries in Europe, America, Asia, Northern Africa and we have a portfolio of
over 60 brands.
Our stock is quoted in the Madrid Stock Exchange Market (Ibex 35 company). The Hernandez family is the reference
shareholder since 2003. All together, with other members of the Board (essentially other Spanish families), control
44.6% of the equity. The rest is freely floated in the market.
Being our products strongly related with raw materials our relationship with rice and durum wheat farmers has always
been very strong and we consider this as a very valuable asset.
Our balance sheet is very strong. Nowadays we are debt free and we have a strong cash flow generation. We have the
clear ambition of reinforcing our international leadership in our core businesses.

RICE BUSINESS
The Rice Business
The history of our Rice Division tracks back to a business started by the Hernandez Family in Spain in 1950.
After its full integration in Ebro Foods in 2001, we have taken over 10 rice businesses throughout the world: Denmark,
Hungary, Finland, Germany, UK, USA, Canada, Egypt, Thailand and India most of them branded companies but as well
sourcing capacity (silos and mills).
Two key milestones for us were the acquisition on Riviana Foods in 2004 (374 MUSD) and Minute Rice in 2006 (280
MUSD). That development allowed us to become US leader in rice. That added to our pasta activity created a 1,0 BUSD
sales group in US and Canada.
Nowadays we are the largest rice processor in the world with leading brands in most countries in Europe, USA and
Canada.
We have a strong expertise in raw materials. One of our strengths is having a strong foothold in the largest rice
production regions in the world, with a strong infrastructure and a flexible balance sheet.
We are using our brands to open up new sectors, including convenience foods, pasta, purées, porridges and new
products.
Management raw materials, production and packaging, technologies and brands are vital for our project.

PASTA BUSINESS
The Pasta Business
Our first step in the Pasta business was the acquisition of Panzani in 2005 (€639 m).
Panzani was the leading dry pasta, fresh pasta, rice and sauces branded leader in France. It brought to our group an
expertise in pasta marketing and R+I+D, along with a specialized management team that allowed us to transfer all
these knowledge to other countries.
Panzani was the perfect platform to develop a pasta business, offering know-how and product innovation, allowing those
new products to be introduced on markets on which we were already present.
In 2006 we bought New World Pasta (“NWP”), the pasta branded leader in USA and Canada, it was a company that was
getting out of Chapter 11, clearly underinvested in R+D and A&P. We integrated NWP with our rice businesses in North
America generating important synergies.
In 2008 we acquired Birkel, the branded pasta leader in Germany.
Our strategy in pasta is focused in:
Convenience, e.g.: microwave products, quick cook, etc.
Health, e.g.: pasta enriched with vegetables, whole grain pasta, high fiber white pasta, etc.
Taste/Ethnics, e.g. Fresh pasta, fresh sauces, Halal, etc.

started as a sugar and dairy company and nowadays we are focused in rice and pasta therefore our relationship with our

farmers and industrials is a long term one, based on cooperation and respect.
We purchase around 2 million tones of rice a year and some 1 million tones of durum wheat what shows the magnitudes
