Exhibit 99.1
Alico Announces New Stock Repurchase Program
Board of Directors Authorizes 31,000 Shares to Fund Director Stock Compensation Plan
La Belle, Florida, November 17, 2005 -- Alico, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALCO), one of the South’s best-known agribusiness companies operating in Central and Southwest Florida, announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to 31,000 Shares of the Company’s common stock through August 31, 2007 for the purpose of funding its Director Stock Compensation Plan. The Plan provides for the issuance of common stock to eligible Directors who elect to receive their Director’s fees payable in common stock in lieu of cash.

The stock repurchases will be made on a quarterly basis between now and August 31, 2007 through open market transactions, at times and in such amounts as the Company’s broker determines subject to the provisions of a 10b5-1 Plan which the Company has adopted for such purchases. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including price, corporate and regulatory requirements and other market conditions. All purchases will be made subject to restrictions of Rule 10b-18 relating to volume, price and timing so as to minimize the impact of the purchases upon the market for the Company’s Shares. The Company’s repurchases under this plan during the first year are not expected to exceed 19,000 Shares. The Company does not anticipate that any purchases under the Plan will be made from any officer, director or control person. There are currently no arrangements with any person for the purchase of the Shares. The Company will use internally generated funds to make the purchases.
John R. Alexander, Chairman and CEO of Alico, Inc. said, “The stock repurchase program is designed to provide the shares authorized under the Company’s Director Stock Compensation Plan, which was implemented to further align the interests of Alico’s Board of Directors with that of its shareholders.”
