Note 5. Property and Equipment, Net
Property and equipment, net consists of the following at September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2020:
For the fiscal years ended September 30, 2021 and 2019, the Company did not record any impairments and for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded approximately $598,000 of impairments on property and equipment. This impairment resulted from the sale of a portion of the Alico Ranch to the State of Florida comprising approximately 10,700 acres on the western part of the ranch (see Note 4. Assets Held For Sale) and because the sale of those acres affected the proposed dispersed water management project, the Company decided to suspend all permit approval activities for its dispersed water management project and the Company wrote-down the assets relating to this project during the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020. This impairment relates to the Company’s Land Management and Other Operations segment and was recorded in Operating Expenses in the Consolidated Statement of Operations.
On October 30, 2020, the Company purchased approximately 3,280 gross citrus acres located in Hendry County for a purchase price of approximately $18,230,000. This acquisition complements the Company’s existing citrus acres as these acres are located adjacent to existing groves in Hendry County. This purchase was part of a like-kind exchange transaction, which allowed the Company to defer taxes relating to the sale of certain sections of the West Ranch.
On June 1, 2020, the Company sold approximately 30 ranch acres to an employee for approximately $122,000 and recognized a gain of approximately $83,000.
On May 4, 2020, the Company purchased 334 citrus acres for approximately $2,850,000. This acquisition complements the Company’s existing citrus acres as these acres are located adjacent to existing groves in the Frostproof area. Additionally, this purchase was part of a like-kind exchange transaction, which allowed the Company to defer taxes relating to the sale of certain sections of the Alico Ranch.
On September 27, 2019, the Company sold approximately 5,500 acres from its West Ranch for approximately $14,775,000 and realized a gain on sale of approximately $13,033,000. Upon the sale of these acres, the lease rate pertaining to the grazing and other rights was adjusted from $98,750 to $80,000 per month, as space on these acres was previously being leased to a third party.
The entire disclosure for long-lived, physical asset used in normal conduct of business and not intended for resale. Includes, but is not limited to, work of art, historical treasure, and similar asset classified as collections.
