    Historical Context

    American Sugar was one of the original 12 Dow Jones stocks when the index debuted on May 26, 1896. In 1970, the American Sugar Company changed its name to Amstar Corp. and distributed its products under the Domino brand name.

    The Domino Sugar name was owned by Amstar until 1984 when it went through a "leverage buy-out" which transferred the ownership to the Wall Street firm Kohlberg Kravis and Roberts. It was sold it to Merrill Lynch in 1986; and in 1988 was acquired by Tate & Lyle.
