Item 5.02      
Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers.
 
On June 3, 2009, the Company announced that Director Dean Saunders has resigned from the Company’s Audit Committee and been replaced by Director Robert Viguet, a securities lawyer.  Mr. Saunders will remain on the Company’s Board and continue to serve on the Board’s Real Estate and Investment Committee. Mr. Saunders is a leading real estate broker in Florida.  Alico’s Board of Directors recently decided to actively market certain portions of its real estate holdings and the independent directors conceptually approved Mr. Saunders to assist the Company in its marketing efforts.  Mr. Saunders resigned his position with the Audit Committee in order to avoid any questions concerning his status as an independent director.  Any dealings with Mr. Saunders or his real estate company will be evaluated by the Audit Committee under the Company’s affiliated transactions policy to assure that any such dealings are conducted in accordance with that policy in compliance with the rules and regulations of the Securities Exchange Commission.

Alico’s Audit Committee is now composed of Evelyn D’An, Chairperson, Ramon Rodriguez, Charles L. Palmer, Robert Viguet and Dr. Gordon Walker.
