- Settlement Agreement in Principle Reached with IRS

Fort Myers, FL, December 14, 2011

– Alico, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALCO) (“Alico”), a land management company, today announced financial results for the fiscal year 2011 fourth quarter and for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011 was $1.5 million or $(0.20) per share as compared to a net loss of $2.9 million, or $(0.39) per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010. Loss from operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011 was $1.8 million compared to a loss from operations of $1.6 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010.

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011, net income totaled $7.1 million or $0.96 per share as compared to a net loss of $0.6 million or $0.08 per share for fiscal year 2010. Income from operations for fiscal year 2011 was $15.2 million compared to $3.5 million for fiscal year 2010.

JD Alexander, Alico’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated “We continued to make significant progress in fiscal year 2011 as we increased our operating revenues by $18.8 million and net income by $7.7 million, strengthened our balance sheet by paying down long-term debt by $16.3 million and generated Adjusted EBITDA of $23.2 million for the year. Additionally, we reached a settlement agreement in principle, through the IRS Appeals process, to pay approximately $1.6 million in taxes and interest to settle claims of $31.1 million originally asserted by the IRS for the tax periods 2005 through 2007. We have maintained that the tax positions we took were supportable and believe this settlement agreement in principle reflects that.”

Mr. Alexander concluded, “Our agricultural operations benefitted from increased selling prices and increased production during fiscal year 2011. We anticipate citrus and sugarcane production increases over fiscal year 2011 as we continue to improve our agricultural operations. As we begin fiscal year 2012, we are confident about the continued financial stability of our business and our position in the marketplace.”

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011, total operating revenue was $6.2 million, as compared to $5.6 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010, an increase of 10.7%.
