Item 8.01. Other Events

Alico, Inc. (the “Company”) has announced that the Board of Directors has authorized a repurchase program of up to 50,000 additional shares of its outstanding common stock, $1.00 par value per share. The authorization is effective September 17, 2015 and will expire on December 31, 2016. The Company has also adopted a Rule 10b5-1 share repurchase plan under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Plan”) in connection with its share repurchase authorization. The Plan allows the Company to repurchase its shares at times when it otherwise might be prevented from doing so under insider trading laws or because of self-imposed trading blackout periods. Because repurchases under the Plan are subject to certain pricing parameters, there is no guarantee as to the exact number of shares that will be repurchased under the Plan or that there will be any repurchases pursuant to the Plan. Subject to applicable regulations, the Company may elect to amend or cancel the Plan at its discretion.





Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
