ITEM 2.02 RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION
 
On December 14, 2009, the Company announced a net loss for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 of $6.1 million or $0.84 per share, compared with a net loss of $4.6 million or $0.62 per share for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ended September 30, 2008.  The loss during the quarter ended September 30, 2009 was impacted by fixed asset impairments totaling $5.1 million before income taxes.  Annually, Alico reported a net loss of $3.6 million, or $0.50 per share, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 compared with net earnings of $4.7 million, or $0.76 per share, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2008.

Operating revenue during the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 was $4.7 million compared with operating revenue of $3.5 million during the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ended September 30, 2008.  Annual operating revenues were $89.5 million compared with $116.4 million for the fiscal years ended September 30, 2009 and September 30, 2008, respectively.    The decrease in annual revenue was largely due to lower citrus prices experienced by the Company during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 compared with the prior year.
