Financial report summary

  • Adverse weather conditions, natural disasters, including earthquakes and wildfires, and other natural conditions, including the effects of climate change, could impose significant costs and losses on our business.
  • Our agricultural plantings are potentially subject to damage from disease and pests, which could impose losses on our business and the prevention of which could impose significant additional costs on us.
  • Our business is highly competitive and we cannot assure you that we will maintain our current market share.
  • Our strategy of marketing and selling our lemons directly to our food service, wholesale and retail customers may not continue to be successful.
  • We depend on our relationship with Calavo and their ability to sell our avocados. Any disruption in this relationship could harm our sales.
  • Our earnings are sensitive to fluctuations in market supply and prices and demand for our products.
  • Our earnings may be subject to seasonal variability.
  • Currency exchange fluctuation may impact the results of our operations.
  • Increases in commodity or raw product costs, such as fuel and paper, could adversely affect our operating results.
  • Increases in labor, personnel and benefits costs could adversely affect our operating results.
  • Changes in immigration laws could impact the ability of Limoneira to harvest its crops.
  • The lack of sufficient water would severely impact our ability to produce crops or develop real estate.
  • The use of herbicides, pesticides and other potentially hazardous substances in our operations may lead to environmental damage and result in increased costs to us.
  • Environmental and other regulation of our business, including potential climate change regulation, could adversely impact us by increasing our production cost or restricting our ability to import certain products into the United States.
  • Global capital and credit market issues affect our liquidity, increase our borrowing costs and may affect the operations of our suppliers and customers.
  • A global economic downturn may have an adverse impact on participants in our industry, which cannot be fully predicted.
  • We are subject to the risk of product contamination and product liability claims.
  • We are subject to transportation risks.

  • Inflation can have a significant adverse effect on our operations.
  • System security risks, data protection breaches, cyber-attacks and systems integration issues could disrupt our internal operations or services provided to customers, and any such disruption could reduce our expected revenue, increase our expenses, damage our reputation and adversely affect our stock price.
  • Government regulation could increase our costs of production and increase legal and regulatory expenses.
  • Our strategy to expand international production and marketing may not be successful and may subject us to risks associated with doing business in corrupt environments.
  • The acquisition of other businesses could pose risks to our operating income.
  • We depend on our infrastructure to have sufficient capacity to handle our annual lemon production needs.
  • We may be unable to generate sufficient cash flow to service our debt obligations.
  • Restrictive covenants in our debt instruments restrict or prohibit our ability to engage in or enter into a variety of transactions, which could adversely restrict our financial and operating flexibility and subject us to other risks.
  • Despite our relatively high current indebtedness levels and the restrictive covenants set forth in agreements governing our indebtedness, we may still incur significant additional indebtedness, including secured and guaranteed indebtedness. Incurring more indebtedness could increase the risks associated with our substantial indebtedness.
  • Some of our debt is based on variable rates of interest, which could result in higher interest expenses in the event of an increase in the interest rates.

  • We are subject to environmental regulations and opposition from environmental groups that could cause delays and increase the costs of our real estate development efforts or preclude such development entirely.

  • If the real estate industry weakens or instability of the mortgage industry and commercial real estate financing exists, it could have an adverse effect on our real estate business.
  • We rely on contractual arrangements with third party advisors to assist us in carrying out our real estate development projects and are subject to risks associated with such arrangements.
  • If we are unable to complete land development projects within forecasted time and budget expectations, if at all, our financial results may be negatively affected.
  • If we are unable to obtain required land use entitlements at reasonable costs, or at all, our operating results would be adversely affected.
  • We could experience a reduction in revenues or reduced cash flows if we are unable to obtain reasonably priced financing to support our real estate development projects and land development activities.
