2 Disclosure. Forward - Looking Statements This presentation contains forward - looking statements, including guidance for fiscal years 2023 and beyond, within the meaning o f Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward - looking statements are based on Limoneira's current expectations about future events and can be identified by terms such as "expect," "may," "anticipate," "intend," "should be," "w ill be," "is likely to," "strive to," and similar expressions referring to future periods. Limoneira believes the expectations reflected in the forward - looking statements are reasonable but cannot guarantee future resul ts, level of activity, performance or achievements. Actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward - looking statements. Therefore, Limoneira cautions you against relying on any of these forward - looking statements. Factors which may cause future outcomes to differ materially from those foreseen in forward - looking statements include, but are not limited to: success in executing Limoneira’s business plans and strategies and managing the risks involved in the foregoing: additional impacts from the current COVID - 19 pandemic; changes in laws, regulations, rules, quotas, tariffs and import laws; weather conditions that affect producti on, transportation, storage, import and export of fresh product; increased pressure from crop disease, insects and other pests; disruption of water supplies or chang es in water allocations; disruption in the global supply chain; pricing and supply of raw materials and products; market responses to industry volume pressures; pricing an d supply of energy; changes in interest rates and the impact of inflation; availability of financing for land development activities; political changes and economic cri ses; international conflict; acts of terrorism; labor disruptions, strikes or work stoppages; the impact of exchange rate movements; loss of important intellectual property rig hts; ability to maintain compliance with covenants in debt instruments; and market and pricing risks due to concentrated ownership of stock.

Non - GAAP Financial Measures Due to significant depreciable assets associated with the nature of the Company's operations and interest costs associated wi th its capital structure, management believes that earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") and adjusted EBITDA, which exc lud es stock - based compensation, named executive officer cash severance, pension settlement cost and (gain) loss on disposal of assets, is an important measure to e val uate the Company's results of operations between periods on a more comparable basis. Such measurements are not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted acc oun ting principles ("GAAP") and should not be construed as an alternative to reported results determined in accordance with GAAP. The non - GAAP information provi ded is unique to the Company and may not be consistent with methodologies used by other companies. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are summarized and reconciled to ne t (loss) income attributable to Limoneira Company, which management considers to be the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented i n a ccordance with GAAP.

The California avocado crop experienced extreme heat in FY18, which caused minimal contribution in FY19, but normal production capacity resumed in FY20. The California avocado crop experienced a lack of rainfall in FY21, which reduced the overall size of the actual avocado fruit pieces. A disruption in supply chain in Mexico led to outsized results in FY22.

Limoneira addresses water scarcity and potential negative impacts on community water resources by maintaining a careful balance between water demand and supply — and by driving efficiencies in water use. 55 Innovating New Methods of Protecting Water. Moisture sensors determine when trees need water and how much (i.e., when they reach full holding capacity), thus reducing run off and wasted water. Limoneira irrigates when trees need the water versus when water is provided by the irrigation company A series of gravity fed ponds that circulate and clean 30M gallons of water annually with natural vegetation, local plants and fine gravels. Use of Water Probes Introduction of a Natural Wastewater System INNOVATIVE MANAGEMENT PRACTICES & TECHNOLOGIES
Limoneira has been treading lightly on the land since its founding 130 years ago — long before sustainability entered the modern lexicon. 56 Commitment to ESG is Deeply Embedded in Culture.
