Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

Note 1. Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

Description of Business

 

Alico Inc. ("Alico") and its wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively, the "Company") is an agribusiness and land management company. The Company owns approximately 130,400 acres of land in five Florida counties (Collier, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Polk). Our principal lines of business are citrus groves, improved farmland including sugarcane, cattle ranching and conservation, and related support operations. We also receive royalties from rock mining and oil production.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying (a) condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2012, which has been derived from audited financial statements, and (b) unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements (the "Financial Statements") of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). The Financial Statements include all adjustments, consisting of normal and recurring adjustments, which in the opinion of management were necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. The results of the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results for any other interim periods or the entire fiscal year.

 

The Financial Statements have been presented according to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Certain information, footnotes and disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted in accordance with those rules and regulations. The Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. The Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2012.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The Financial Statements include the accounts of Alico, and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Alico Land Development, Inc. ("ALDI"), Alico-Agri, Ltd. ("Alico-Agri"), Alico Plant World, LLC and Alico Fruit Company, LLC (formerly known as Bowen Brothers Fruit Company, LLC) ("Alico Fruit"). All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior years' consolidated financial statements to conform to the fiscal year 2013 presentation. These reclassifications had no impact on working capital, net income, stockholders' equity or cash flows as previously reported.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates based upon future events. The Company periodically evaluates the estimates. The estimates are based on current and expected economic conditions, historical experience and various other specific assumptions that the Company believes to be reasonable.

 

Seasonality

 

The Company is primarily engaged in agriculture, which is of a seasonal nature and subject to the influence of natural phenomena and wide price fluctuations. The results of the reported period herein are not necessarily indicative of the results for any other interim periods or the entire fiscal year.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company does not believe that any recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB (including its Emerging Issues Task Force), the AICPA, or the SEC would have a material effect on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
