In its fiscal quarter ending Dec. 31, net income rose by more than 386{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c} over the year, primarily due to the sale of its real estate.

The publicly-traded company — one of the nation’s largest citrus producers — reported earnings of $3.8 million, or 51 cents a share. That was up from about $800,000, or 11 cents a year ago.

The results included a $3.4 million gain mostly related to the sale of 700 acres from its Alico Ranch in Hendry County — and the sale of mineral rights — to multiple private buyers.

Excluding the gain and other one-time revenues, the company lost 23 cents a share in the quarter. That compared to an adjusted loss of 29 cents a share a year ago.

The latest financial results reflect the seasonality of Alico’s business. Most of the company’s citrus crop is harvested in the second and third quarters of its fiscal year.

Shaler Area agrees to sale of former elementary school to real estate company; township believed it was buyer

Shaler commissioners were blindsided this week by the announcement that Shaler Area School District reached an agreement to sell the former Jeffery Primary building.

The township believed it had a verbal agreement for the acquisition, Manager Tim Rogers said.

“The district never advised us that they had retracted the offer to monetize the sale of the property,” Rogers said. “We are of course disappointed with the decision of the school board.”

The vacant elementary school building along Wetzel Road was offered for sale by the district to Shaler for $120,000, Rogers said.

The 31,500-square-foot school sits directly across from the municipal building and Kiwanis Park, making it an obvious extension to the complex, he added.

Bethany Baker, district communications specialist, said the district did not have a signed purchase and sale agreement with Shaler Township.

The sale to ANG Real Estate was approved by the school board on Dec. 9 for $499,000. Final approval is subject to review by the district solicitor.

Representatives from ANG Real Estate were not immediately able to be reached for comment.

Superintendent Sean Aiken said the
