Gentlemen,
 
 
Please accept this correspondence as my formal resignation as Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of Alico, Inc. and each of its subsidiaries, effective on a date to be mutually determined between the Company and myself. I feel that the time has come for me to pursue other career opportunities. My decision is solely based on what I feel is the best path for myself and was reached after much soul searching and prayer. I wish the Company and its employees nothing but future success.
 
 
Sincerely
 
 
/s/ Patrick W. Murphy
