For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, the Company recorded a casualty loss of approximately $1,400,000 with respect to one of its groves, which grove sustained tree loss of approximately $1,300,000, and damage to one of its buildings of approximately $100,000, as a direct result of Hurricane Ian.


For the fiscal years ended September 30, 2022, and 2021, the Company did not record any property and equipment impairments and, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, 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 related to the Company’s Land Management and Other Operations segment and was recorded in Operating Expenses in the Consolidated Statement of Operations.


In connection with the State of Florida’s condemnation of a certain portion of Alico’s property in October 2021, the Company received approximately $1,450,000, all of which was recognized as a gain.


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.
