Item 8.01   Other Events.


Alico, Inc. (the “Company” or “Alico”), a land management company, announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Alico-Agri, Ltd., reached an agreement with Private Equity Group, LLC (“PEG”) to sell three parcels of land in Lee County, Florida (the “Property”) totaling approximately 5,200 acres . The sales price of the Property is $10.0 million and the closings are scheduled to occur in two tranches on July 25, 2012 and October 3, 2012.


The Company expects to record an impairment loss of approximately $1.9 million which will impact the quarter ended June 30, 2012. The transaction will increase cash flow from investing activities by approximately $7.3 million for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2012 and $2.5 million for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013. Our income tax basis in the Property is approximately $65.0 million, and the sale will generate an income tax loss of approximately $55.0 million. The tax loss will offset gains from recently completed Polk County, Florida land transactions and will further provide approximately $45.0 million in loss carry forwards after these sales for potential use over the next five years as the Company continues to market under-productive assets. The proceeds from both tranches have either been delivered to the Company or deposited in a non-refundable escrow account.
