Fort Myers-based Alico Inc., a grower and land manager, has formed a special committee of independent directors to explore working cooperatively with Atlantic Blue Group, which has announced it plans to sell its entire equity position in Alico.
Atlantic Blue, a holder of 50.6 percent of Alico's common stock, has said it will pursue the potential sale of substantially all of its assets this year because of recent tax code changes related to subchapter S corporations like itself.
