Description of Business
Alico, Inc., together with its subsidiaries (collectively, “Alico”, the “Company”, “we”, “us” or “our”), is a Florida agribusiness and land management company owning approximately 54,500 acres of land and mineral rights throughout Florida. Alico holds these mineral rights on substantially all its owned acres, with additional mineral rights on other acres. The Company manages its land based upon its primary usage, and reviews its performance based upon two primary classifications: (i) Alico Citrus and (ii) Land Management and Other Operations. Financial results are presented based upon these two business segments.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, which are referred to herein as the “Financial Statements”, of Alico have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations for reporting on Form 10-Q. Accordingly, these Financial Statements do not include all of the disclosures required for complete annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). As such, these Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2023, as filed with the SEC on December 6, 2023 (the “2023 Annual Report on Form 10-K”).
Operating results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year. However, in the opinion of management, such Financial Statements include all adjustments, consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented in conformity with U.S. GAAP applicable to interim periods. Certain reclassifications have been made to prior year amounts to conform to the current year presentation.
The Company is primarily engaged in the production of fruit for sale to citrus markets, which is of a seasonal nature, and subject to the influence of natural phenomena and wide price fluctuations. Historically, the second and third quarters of Alico’s fiscal year produce most of the Company’s annual revenue. Working capital requirements are typically greater in the first and fourth quarters of the fiscal year, coinciding with harvesting cycles. Because of the seasonality of the business, results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full fiscal year.
