May 2 (Reuters) - U.S. agricultural trader Archer Daniels Midland Co on Tuesday reported a 47 percent jump in first-quarter profit, as higher U.S. exports of corn and soybeans boosted volumes and margins.
Net profit attributable to ADM rose to $339 million, or 59 cents per share, in the quarter ended March 31, from $230 million, or 39 cents a share, a year earlier.
Revenue rose to $14.99 billion from $14.38 billion. (Reporting by Siddharth Cavale in Bangalore and Karl Plume in Chicago; Editing by Sai Sachin Ravikumar)
