Alico, Inc. Announces Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2022

 

Fort Myers, FL, December 13, 2022 - Alico, Inc. (“Alico” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: ALCO) today announces financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, the highlights of which are as follows:

 

Company reports net income attributable to Alico, Inc. common stockholders of $12.5 million and EBITDA of $32.1 million for the fiscal year 2022. After adjusting for certain non-recurring items, Company reports adjusted net loss attributable to Alico, Inc. common stockholders of $1.6 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $13.4 million.
Company’s fiscal year 2022 financial results are below the most recent net income and EBITDA guidance, primarily due to the approximately $23.0 million of inventory and casualty losses incurred as a result of the impact of Hurricane Ian; however, adjusting out for the impact of Hurricane Ian, such financial results exceeded the most recent Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA guidance.
During fiscal year 2022, the Company sold approximately 9,400 acres of the Alico Ranch to several third parties for approximately $41.9 million and used portions of the net cash proceeds to return approximately $15 million to shareholders through common dividends, prepay certain debt obligations, and support operations.
Company maintains a strong balance sheet with a working capital ratio of 1.91 to 1.00 and has reduced its debt-to-equity ratio to 0.45 to 1.00 for the fiscal year ended 2022 from 0.50 to 1.00 for the fiscal year ended 2021.
Alico will not at this time be providing investors with financial guidance for the 2023 fiscal year due to uncertainty related to Hurricane Ian.

 

Results of Operations

 

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, the Company reported net income attributable to Alico common stockholders of approximately $12.5 million, compared to net income attributable to Alico common stockholders of approximately $34.9 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021. The fiscal year ended 2022 results were negatively impacted by approximately $23.0 million of one-time items for casualty losses and inventory adjustments related to the impact of Hurricane Ian. As a consequence of these one-time adjustments, the net income for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022 was below the Company’s most recent net income guidance of $30.7 to $33.3 million. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, the Company had earnings of $1.65 per diluted common share, compared to earnings of $4.64 per diluted common share for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021. The 2022 fiscal year decrease in net income attributable to Alico common stockholders is primarily due to the one-time adjustments recorded as a result of the impact of Hurricane Ian and a reduction in both box production and average pound solids per box of citrus fruit for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, as compared to the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021. Partially offsetting this decrease was (i) higher gains on sales of real estate, property and equipment and assets held for sale recorded in the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, as compared to the same period in fiscal year 2021 and (ii) an increase in the market price per pound solids for citrus fruit in the 2021/2022 harvest season, as compared to the 2020/2021 harvest season, because of favorable industry supply dynamics.

 

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, the Company’s EBITDA of $32.1 million was below the Company’s most recent EBITDA guidance of $52.6 million to $56.6 million, primarily due to the approximate $23.0 million of the one-time items for casualty losses and inventory adjustments related to the impact of Hurricane Ian.

When both periods are adjusted for certain non-recurring items, including primarily the casualty losses and inventory adjustments related to the impact of Hurricane Ian and gains on sale of real estate, the Company had an adjusted net loss of $0.21 per diluted common share for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, compared to an adjusted net income of $0.62 per diluted common share for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021. Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal years ended September 30, 2022, and 2021 was $13.4 million and $25.3 million, respectively, representing a 47.0% decrease.

 

These financial results also reflect the seasonal nature of the Company’s business. The majority of the Company’s citrus crop is harvested in the second and third quarters of the fiscal year; consequently, most of the Company's gross profit and cash flows from operating activities are typically recognized in those quarters and the Company’s working capital requirements are typically greater in the first and fourth quarters of the fiscal year.

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, Alico Citrus harvested approximately 5.5 million boxes of fruit, a decrease of 12.9% from the prior fiscal year. The decrease was principally attributable to greater fruit drop and the freeze event which occurred in January 2022. However, the Company’s decline in harvested production was substantially lower than the USDA citrus report for the industry, in which the USDA reported a 22.5% decline in the total orange crop for the 2021/2022 harvest season, as compared to the prior year. As anticipated, the Company saw its average realized/blended price per pound solids rise from $2.45 in the prior fiscal year to $2.63 in fiscal year 2022. The Company anticipates market prices in the 2022/2023 harvest season to be consistent or slightly above this past season’s market prices largely due to continued consumption of not-from-concentrate orange juice by retail consumers, low levels of inventory stocks at the juice processors and a tighter global supply for oranges.

 

Land Management and Other Operations Division Results

 

Land Management and Other Operations includes lease income from grazing rights leases, hunting leases, a farm lease, a lease to a third party of an aggregate mine, leases of oil extraction rights to third parties and other miscellaneous income.

 

Income from operations for the Land Management and Other Operations Division decreased for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022 by $0.2 million, compared to the prior fiscal year. This decrease was primarily driven by a reduction in the leased acreage relating to grazing and hunting leases, due to the sale of certain acres, which were previously included under these lease arrangements, thus resulting in fewer acres now being leased under these grazing and hunting leases.

 

Management Comment

 

John Kiernan, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “2022 was a challenging year for Alico. Two weather events had a meaningful impact on our Company and the Florida citrus industry. As previously discussed, in January, the freeze increased fruit drop for our Valencia crop at the beginning of our harvesting season, and we made the decision to accelerate the harvest of the remaining fruit that did not have time to mature to optimal quality standards.

 

“At the end of September, Hurricane Ian struck southwestern Florida with 150 mph winds. The slow-moving storm moved across the state, causing substantial fruit drop at the majority of our groves. Fortunately, tree damage was largely limited to only one property. This lost fruit impacted our fiscal year 2022 financial results through an aggregate of approximately $23.0 million of one-time items for casualty losses and inventory adjustments. Fiscal year 2023 will see lower levels of revenue because we have less fruit available for sale. Based upon our prior experience with storms of this nature, we anticipate it may take up to two seasons or more for our groves to recover to pre-hurricane production levels. After Hurricane Irma struck in 2017, our groves recovered the following harvest season. We maintain crop insurance and are working closely with our insurers and adjusters to evaluate and determine the amount of insurance recovery we may be entitled to, if any.

 

“As it has been for approximately 124 years, Alico remains focused on carrying on its business for the long term. In fact, we believe that we are the only citrus grower in the state of Florida that closed on a small acquisition for additional citrus acres immediately after Hurricane Ian in October. Alico has planted approximately 1.9 million new trees since 2017, which has materially increased tree density in our existing and recently purchased groves. Our Florida-based workforce remains stable. Sales of parcels of the Alico Ranch continue to be negotiated and closed at prices we believe to be attractive.

 

“The Company believes that actions taken in recent years make our balance sheet one of our greatest strengths. Our long-term debt levels have been significantly reduced through prepayments and most of our term debt maturing in 2029 is now non-amortizing. Alico negotiated an extension of its $70 million working capital line of credit with Rabo Agrifinance, Inc. until November 1, 2025. Our $25 million revolving line of credit with MetLife extends until November 2029. We believe that these credit facilities provide Alico with ample liquidity while the Company manages through the impact of the recent weather events. Senior managers of the Company have been working closely with Florida Citrus Mutual, the industry trade group, and government agencies, to seek federal relief to aid our recovery from the effects of Hurricane Ian.

“We believe the investments that Alico has made over the past several years have created what we believe to be the most productive citrus groves in Florida. We will continue to blend a conventional agriculture investment with the ability to optimize the returns on our real assets. We are continuing to work with land-use planning professionals to develop and implement this strategy over the next several years, which we expect to help generate greater returns for our shareholders through active land management.

 

“Alico has paid common dividends to shareholders consistently since it became publicly held more than 6 decades ago. The rate of increased dividend payments since 2019 has been a source of pride as ranch sales proceeds and operations enabled significant amounts of capital to be returned to shareholders. However, taking into account the impact of the recent storm, Alico’s Board of Directors unanimously voted to reduce its next quarterly common dividend to $0.05 per share. As the Company recovers from the effects of the recent hurricane, future capital allocation decisions will be evaluated in an effort to maximize returns to shareholders, which may include but are not limited to pursuing opportunities to acquire additional citrus acreage at attractive prices, repurchasing common shares, making other acquisitions, or even considering special dividends as asset sales, such as additional portions of the Alico Ranch, are realized.”

 

Other Corporate Financial Information

 

General and administrative expenses for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022 were approximately $10.1 million, compared to approximately $9.5 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021. The increase was attributable in large part to increases relating to (i) an increase in legal expense in the twelve months ended September 30, 2022, when compared to the twelve months ended September 30, 2021, with the fiscal year 2021 legal expense having been lower because of a reimbursement of approximately $0.7 million from insurers for a corporate legal matter from 2018 that was received during the twelve months ended September 30, 2021, (ii) a net increase in stock compensation expense of approximately $0.2 million relating to restricted stock awarded to certain executives, senior managers and employees, and (iii) an increase of approximately $0.1 million relating to a company-sponsored incentive for employees to obtain the COVID 19 vaccine. Partially offsetting these increases were reductions relating to (i) a decrease in payroll expenses of approximately $0.3 million primarily relating to the reduction in administrative personnel made during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021 and during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, and (ii) a reduction in Company’s director fees of approximately $0.2 million, relating to a modification of the compensation arrangement for the Board of Directors.

 

Other income, net, for the fiscal years ended September 30, 2022, and 2021 was approximately $37.8 million and approximately $32.0 million, respectively. The other income, net in both fiscal years was primarily due to the Company recognizing significant gains on sales of real estate, property and equipment and assets held for sale, with the increase being attributable to increases in the amount of such gains. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, the Company recorded gains on sale of real estate, property and equipment and assets held for sale of approximately $41.1 million relating primarily to the sale of approximately 9,400 acres from the Alico Ranch to several third parties. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021, the Company recognized gains on sale of real estate, property and equipment and assets held for sale of approximately $35.9 million. Additionally, the increase in other income net was due in part to a decrease in interest expense of approximately $0.7 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, as compared to the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021, primarily due to the reduction of the Company’s long-term debt from the making of mandatory principal payments and certain prepayments.

 

Dividend

 

On October 14, 2022, the Company paid a fourth quarter cash dividend of $0.50 per share on its outstanding common stock to stockholders of record as of September 30, 2022. Additionally, the Company has declared a first quarter fiscal year 2023 cash dividend of $0.05 per share on its outstanding common stock to stockholders of record as of December 30, 2022.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

 

The Company continues to demonstrate financial strength within its balance sheet, as highlighted below:

The Company’s working capital was approximately $15.1 million at September 30, 2022, representing a 1.91 to 1.00 ratio.
The Company maintains a solid and improving debt-to-equity ratio. At September 30, 2022, September 30, 2021, and September 30, 2020, the ratios were 0.45 to 1.00, 0.50 to 1.00, and 0.67 to 1.00, respectively.

 

As of September 30, 2022, the Company had long-term debt, including lines of credit, net of cash and cash equivalents, of approximately $110.8 million. On October 27, 2022, the Company extended the maturity date of its working capital line of credit with one of its lenders to November 1, 2025. The Company, as of September 30, 2022, had approximately $89.8 million of availability under its two lines of credit.

 

Restatement of Historical Balance Sheet Items

 

During the completion of our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2022, the Company identified an error in the calculation of the deferred tax liabilities for the fiscal years 2015 through 2019, resulting in a restatement of balance sheet items as of September 30, 2021 and as of the end of each fiscal quarter previously reported since December 31, 2020. The error had no impact on our consolidated statements of operations or our consolidated statements of cash flows presented in the Form 10-K but resulted in a cumulative reduction in deferred tax liability, and a corresponding cumulative increase in retained earnings, of approximately $2,512,000 on our audited consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2021.
