A&B Issues Statement on Hawaii Earthquake

Monday, October 16, 2006
Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. Chairman & CEO Allen Doane issued the following statement regarding this morning's earthquake: "As many of you are aware, an earthquake struck the Hawaiian Islands this morning. The undersea quake, which was centered off of the island of Hawaii (the "Big Island"), struck at 7:07 am local time and was followed by a series of smaller aftershocks. Thankfully, initial reports indicate that casualties were limited and that there were no fatalities. As always, A&B stands ready to assist and support its employees, customers and fellow Hawaii citizens in dealing with the aftermath of the quake.

"Fortunately, A&B's operations and real estate properties avoided any serious interruptions or damage as a result of the earthquake, and our terminal operations and agricultural facilities continue to operate. Although preliminary reports are favorable, the Company has activated disaster response efforts to assess and evaluate potential damage to the Company's operations across the Island chain, and a more definitive evaluation will be made of the quake's effects on A&B's operations."

The vast majority of A&B's operations in the State of Hawaii are situated on the islands of Maui, Kauai and Oahu, where initial reports of damage have been much lower than those received on the Big Island of Hawaii. On the Big Island, A&B's operations are limited to: -- Vessel port calls on Hilo and Kawaihae through the Company's Matson Navigation Co. subsidiary. (Note: Due to damage to a pier at the State-owned Kawaihae port facility, State officials have requested that Matson divert its Monday barge to Hilo. Kawaihae cargo will then be trucked to its destination.)

-- Participation in a residential joint venture development, Ka Milo, with Brookfield homes, at Mauna Lani. Construction of units at the development has not yet commenced, infrastructure work has been completed.

-- The provision of fleet services (equipment rental and repair services) through a subsidiary, primarily to Big Island transportation and construction companies.
