Good morning, John:

As we have discussed, I will not be able to stand for re-election to the Board in February. My Fund’s day-to-day activities, including serving on the boards of each of our portfolio companies, have dramatically limited the time I am available to serve on the Alico Board. I will, of course at the pleasure of you and the Board, serve on the Company’s board through the remainder of my current term.

Many thanks for your friendship and support.
