On December 6, 2022, Alico announced that it needed additional time for the “completion of the audit of its financial results for the period ended September 30, 2022 by its independent registered public accounting firm” and was postponing its year-end earnings call.
On this news, Alico’s stock price fell $3.06, or 10.4%, to close at $26.29 per share on December 6, 2022, thereby injuring investors.
Then, on December 7, 2022, Alico provided a further update on the delays that it faced in reporting its financial results, disclosing that the “key item” requiring additional time “involves evaluation of the proper amount of the Company’s Deferred Tax Liability, particularly certain portions of that Deferred Tax Liability arising in prior fiscal years, including those going back to fiscal year 2019 or possibly several years before fiscal year 2019.”
Then, on December 13, 2022, Alico filed its 2022 Annual Report, restating its previously issued consolidated balance sheet, audited consolidated statements of changes in equity and related disclosures as of September 30, 2021 included in the Company’s Annual Report for 2021, as well as prior statements for interim periods of fiscal 2021 and 2022. Specifically, an error related to the calculation of the deferred tax liabilities for fiscal 2015 through 2019 “resulted in a cumulative reduction in the Company’s deferred tax liability, and a corresponding cumulative increase in retained earnings, of approximately $2,512,000 on the Company’s balance sheet as of September 30, 2022.”
On this news, Alico’s stock price fell $2.64, or 9.5%, to close at $25.05 per share on December 14, 2022, thereby injuring investors further.
